In an episode entitled "That Was the Darkest Time in My Life," Grammy-winning R&B star Ashanti, her younger sister Kenashia "Shia" Douglas, and their mom Tina open up about the horrific domestic abuse Shia endured for years. In their first interview together, this tight-knit family shares what they call the "darkest time of their lives."

Watch an exclusive clip below where Shia and Ashanti describe how Shia's alleged abuser continued to stalk her after an incident where she says he knocked her teeth out:


( function() {
var func = function() {
var iframe = document.getElementById('wpcom-iframe-8546d3bd470f6a920d32b2b1e297fb8d')
if ( iframe ) {
iframe.onload = function() {
iframe.contentWindow.postMessage( {
'msg_type': 'poll_size',
'frame_id': 'wpcom-iframe-8546d3bd470f6a920d32b2b1e297fb8d'
}, "https:\/\/embeds.go.ione.nyc" );

// Autosize iframe
var funcSizeResponse = function( e ) {

var origin = document.createElement( 'a' );
origin.href = e.origin;

// Verify message origin
if ( 'embeds.go.ione.nyc' !== origin.host )

// Verify message is in a format we expect
if ( 'object' !== typeof e.data || undefined === e.data.msg_type )

switch ( e.data.msg_type ) {
case 'poll_size:response':
var iframe = document.getElementById( e.data._request.frame_id );

if ( iframe && '' === iframe.width )
iframe.width = '100%';
if ( iframe && '' === iframe.height )
iframe.height = parseInt( e.data.height );


if ( 'function' === typeof window.addEventListener ) {
window.addEventListener( 'message', funcSizeResponse, false );
} else if ( 'function' === typeof window.attachEvent ) {
window.attachEvent( 'onmessage', funcSizeResponse );
if (document.readyState === 'complete') { func.apply(); /* compat for infinite scroll */ }
else if ( document.addEventListener ) { document.addEventListener( 'DOMContentLoaded', func, false ); }
else if ( document.attachEvent ) { document.attachEvent( 'onreadystatechange', func ); }
} )();

Yikes! That was absolutely horrifying.

In the Red Tabe Talk exclusive, Shia is bravely revealing what led to chilling photos of bruises, black eyes and broken teeth. Ashanti speaks out about feeling helpless, wanting to take matters into her own hands, and the important steps their family took to heal. It's an eye-opening look at domestic abuse incidents that happen every three seconds in America.

It's graphic, but both Ashanti and Shia posted messages documenting the abuse during Domestic Violence Awareness Month this October
