Cheryl “Salt” James added, “It was important for us to be vulnerable and honest while making this movie.”
Sandra “Pepa” Denton admitted she had a hard time trying to respectfully show her allegedly abusive relationship with ex-husband Anthony “Treach” Criss of Naughty by Nature in the film.
“In the movie, I didn’t just want to focus on the negative things between us. I wanted to be fair to [Treach] and show that despite the bad, he was a good guy, too.”
Well MTO News can confirm that she definitely showed the BAD in him. MTO News confirms that Treach is seen whooping on Pepa multiple times throughout the movie.
