A lot has changed since the last time that we checked in on Starr Parker! She finally gave birth to a beautiful, bouncing baby girl named Janiyah. The kids were in LOVE with the new baby and spent most of their time swooning over their new baby cousin!
It was amazing how her little family was growing BUT today was a VERY special day! Today was Nykeira & Sir'Dre's birthday! Starr woke up early to prepare both of their birthday cakes from scratch and spent the entire morning cleaning up for the party!
Before she knew it, all the guests had arrived, the music was pumping and the time for them to blow out their candles had come! Starr was surprised at how emotional she was while watching the two kids that she'd saved from the streets just a few years ago blow out their candles!
"Happy Birthday Dear Ny and Dreee! Happy birthday to you" Everyone sang, and then the two of them blew out their candles together!
Both of them aged into teenagers, leaving everyone shocked, including themselves!
"Ohmg Bro-Look at you." Nykeira giggled laughing at her brothers mustache.
"No, look at you." Sir'Dre joked! "You look like a deer in headlights" He said smiling. Although they both racked on each other, the truth was, they were both thoroughly happy and proud of one another. But no one was more proud than their Auntie Starr.
"Oh my lord." She said looking at them with pure admiration. "Look at Aunties Babies!" Shesaid with happy tears sliding down her face. "You two are ALL grown up! What am I going to do?" She said, overwhelmed with happiness. Both Nykeria and Sir'Dre smiled and hugged their Auntie Starr.
"Welp, you can start by buying us a car." Sir'Dre joked. But little did he know, their auntie Starr was lightyears ahead of them!
"Oh you got jokes?" Starr said, replying to Dre's adolescent humor.
"Just kidding Auntie." Dre said! "A guy can dream right?" He asked, dismissing his thought. But, Starr had something up her sleeve.
"Follow Me." Starr said, catching everyone at the party by storm.
Starr walked NyKerria and Dre outside to show them the matching cars that she'd purchased them for a birthday gift!!
"Dreams do come true! Happy birthday babies! Auntie loves you" She said, shocking both of the teenagers.
"No way auntie!" NyKeira said, in complete shock!
"Way" Starr replied, proud and happy that the kids approved of her birthday gift. Four years ago, if you would have asked her what she thought her life would be like, she wouldn't have believed that it would be anything like this! Her life changed the moment her sister left her niece and nephew on her doorstep- and she was so glad that it did!
TO BE CONTINUED...
Ny'Kerria was doing her best to help out around the houses after finding out that her Auntie Starr was pregnant. Today, Ny'Kerria knew that her auntie had a big movie shoot and she wanted to surprise her by cleaning up the house. After washing the dishes, setting the table and making sure that everything was spic and span for her Aunt's arrival home, Ny'kerria decided to try and wash the clothes before she got home. Unfortunatly, as Ny'Kerria started the dryer, it caught immediatly caught on fire.
Starr and Isman had been in a secret exclusive relationship since for over seven years now. Now that the two of them were having a baby, she wasn't sure how this was going to effect their relationship. So, the next morning, Starr called Isman over before work to talk and to share the big news.
When he arrived at her doorstep, Starr delivered the news. "Babe, we're having a baby!" Starr said, excited but nervous all at the same time.
Starr secretly went to the doctor and found out that she'd been feeling sick lately, because she was pregnant! Although she was excited, Starr was completely anxiety ridden about becoming a mom. She never invisioned herselsf giving birth, but most importantly, she never imagined that she would be expecting her first child with TWO other children to care for! Although she was overwhelmed, she decided that she had waited long enough, so she sat the kids down in the living room, and shared the big news.
For the past few days, Starr had been feeling like crap. She didn't have much energy, the smell of food made her stomach turn and she was nauseous all the time. This morning was different though. Despite being able to hide how she was feeling so far, today she was unable to.
Star woke up at 7AM ready to puke! She ran to the bathroom and everything that she ate for dinner last night came up. As she reached for a towel to wipe her face, she heard the door creak and realized that little Ny'Kerria had been standing there watching her the entire time. All of the noise Starr was making must have woke Ny'Kerria up.
"Auntie Starr, are you ok?" Ny'Kerria asked, concerned.
"I'm ok, baby. My stomach is just upset, that's all." The truth was, Starr was a wreck. Although she ahd made taking care of Ny'Kerria and Dre look easy, in reality the struggle was real as fuck! She was tired, the media knit-picked everything that she was doing and now, on top of that, she felt terrible. But, she coudln't tell Ny'Kerria.
"Are you sure Auntie?" Ny'Kerria asked, worrying about her Aunt.
"Don't worry, honey. I'm going to the doctor on Monday to get a check up, but Auntie Starr is just fine? Ok?" Starr reassured her. "Don't you worry." Starr said bending down to hug Ny'kerria and then shooing her out of the bathroom. "Now, go play." Starr instructed.
Later That Day...
Ny'Kerria listened to her Aunt and hesitantly went to go find her brother. The two of them went to the lake to go fishing. While they were definitley having fun, Dre noticed his sister acting funny. So, he asked her what was troubling her.
"What's the matter, sissy?" He asked.
Ny'Kerria didn't answer at first, and then finally decided to tell her brother what had happened. "I.... I saw Auntie Starr sick this morning." Ny'Kerria said worried.
At first, Dre was stunned. But, he pushed the negative thoughts out of his mind. "Don't worry sis. I'm sure she just caught a bug or something. She'll be ok." Dre said, reassuringly.
"I don't know Dre, What if something is wrong and she's not telling us." Ny'Kerria replied. The kids had been through a lot, and Starr was all that they had. If they lost her, the one sure thing that they had in their lives, she would be devastated.
"I'm sure there is some sort of explanation, sissy. Don't worry about it." Dre said. Dre wasn't very re-assuring. But, only time would tell...
The last time that we checked in on Starr her sister Nicole was dropping her two kids off at her doorstep. We followed Starr w/ the kids for the first few months, but we never got an understanding of who Nikki was or WHY she abandoned the kids...Let's check in on Starr's sister Nikki and see what she's been up to since she left the kids...
6 Months Later...
While Starr was flourishing with the children in Del Sol Valley Hollywood, her sister Nikki was rotting in Evergreen Harbor. For years she had struggled with Cocaine addiction. Today, she was on her way home from a 6 day binge. She felt terrible, looked like hell and at some point in time had lost her shoes. Sims throughout the neighborhood pointed and whispered as she made her way down the street, but it didn't bother Nikki. She was used to it. She had lost care for her appearance or what anyone else thought of her a very long time ago.
As she was trotting down the street, she noticed a magazine on the ground that had a picture of her sister Starr and her two kids Ny'Kerria and Dre on it. At first, she thought she was still hallucinating. After all, she had just consumed more cocaine in the last 6 days to satisfy two rock bands. But, after bending over and picking it up and reading 'Starr Parks Opens Up About Adoption' Nikki was absolutely livid. Nikki took the magazine and went home.
When she made it home, she sat down in her mangey living room and began reading the article that featured her family:
"Life has been so much fun now that I have my neices and nephew." Starr Says in her feature in the Sassy Sims Magazine. When Starr was asked about when and how the children were placed in her custody, her only remarks were "None of that matters. All that matters is that the world knows that I love Ny'Kerria and Dre like my very own children and that I am moving forward with adoption. I'm doing the best that I can to make sure that these kids remain in a happy and healthy environment, and I hope that the rest of the world will respect my privacy while I try to raise these amazing children in peace."
Seeing Starr living happily ever after with HER children outraged Nikki. She seemed to forget that she dropped them off on her sisters doorstep like bags of dirty laundry. She forgot the type of abuse and neglect that the children were facing when they lived with her... But how DARE Starr tell the world about her irresponsibility?
"Who does this bitch think she is?" Nikki said, angry. "Does she think she's better than me because she's become some big movie star?" Nikki said gritting her teeth. Nikki couldn't believe that Starr had chosen to go so public about it. Anger built up in her as she looked at the magazine that painted a perfect picture of HER family and it made her stomach twiist. "Don't worry BITCH!" Nikki said referring to her sister. "I'm going to make your life MISERABLE now. I'm taking MY kids back." Nikki said right before she laid out another cocaine line and snorted it.
TO BE CONTINUED...
Over a month had passed since the kids had arrived at Starr's doorstep and things were doing considerably well. It seemed as though they had finally settled into their new bedrooms, they liked their new school and this afternoon, Starr was able to leave the Del Sol Valley movie set early, so she was home cooking dinner when the kids got back from school.
"Hey, you two, how was school?" She said, turning the eye off on the stove and coming to sit down and help them with their homework.
"It was great Auntie Starr!" Little Dre said excitedly! He was by far the most quite of the two children, but now that he was more comfortable with his Aunt Starr, he displayed such excitement, vivaciousness and joy. His happiness made Starr smile. For the next hour Dre & Ny'Kerria told Starr about their day, and worked on completing their homework... And, right before Starr got up to serve dinner, she received a call...
Starr picked up her phone excitedly, because it was her boo, Isman. She was excited to hear from her, until she heard his tone.
"Starr, baby... I've got something that I want to tell you." He said taking a deep sigh.
Immediately, Starr's heart dropped and she began thinking the worse. "Isman, what's the matter? Is everything ok?" She asked, concerned. She tried her best to hold her composure in front of the children. But, Dre was bright child and caught on quickly.
"I was on simstagram earlier, and I saw that SMBL Gossip posted a picture of you and the kids..." Isman said, laying the news of their life being leaked to the world as easy as possible. Starrs jaw dropped.
"Oh no..." Starr replied stunned.
"I'm sorry, babe." Isman said. He knew that Starr liked to keep her life private. They had been together for over three years and they still hadn't announced to the world that they'd been together.
"Are you ok?" Isman asked.
"Yeah, babe. I'm fine. Can you send me the link?" She asked him.
"Sure. I'll be by there when I finish laying this track down for Sim-Thug, ok baby?" He said. Isman wanted to come to her now, but money called.
"Alright." Starr replied.
"I love you baby, this is all going to be ok." Isman said, trying to lift Starr's spirits, but it didn't work.
"Love you, too." Starr said, and hung up the phone. She stared into space for a moment.
"Is everything ok, Auntie?" Dre asked, picking up on Starr's distress.
"Yeah, Yeah. Everything is fine. I just need to go to the bathroom for a moment." She lied and excused herself. She went into her master bathroom. Isman sent the link and Starr was stunned when she made it the SMBL Gossip website.
TO BE CONTINUED...
The next few weeks weren't easy, but Starr did her best to support little Ny'Kerria and Dre. At first, the kids were very reserved and didn't say much. But, as the days went by, Starr gained their trust and her love for them grew even stronger. Today, Ny'Kerria FINALLY allowed Starr to wash, and comb her hair. The two had become close and had talked late at night about her dream hairstyle, so Starr woke up and dedicated the entire day to taming her hair. The end result was beautiful and brought tears to Ny'Kerria's eyes.
After Nikki showed up and dropped her two kids off with she tried her best to to console the children. She ushered them gently into her home, gave them a bath and laid them in her bed to sleep. Little Andre went to sleep quickly, without uttering a word, but little Ny'Kerria cried uncontrollably.
Starr had always admired the women on TV. Back when she was little, she would play dress up, and act out the scenes to her favorite movies. When she turned 18, she packed her things, left the hood and went to Del Sol Valley to perseu her career in acting. It's been a few years now. Starr has settled into to the exciting city filled with celebrities and has even made a small name for herself. By day, she was a well known actor and by night, she was a stand up comedian. Little by little, she had climbed her way up to fame and even though she still hadn't made into any movies yet, she'd made it into a few 'Salty Sud' commercials.
