Ever wonder what ever happened to Rodney Allen Rippy?
Before he suddenly surfaced in the race for mayor of this hardscrabble Los Angeles suburb, Rodney Allen Rippy's name was likely to evoke that question inspired by that class of former
child stars who didn't die young, end up in jail or a celebrity rehab series: "Whatever happened to that guy?"

"What if you tweet and nobody tweets back?"

“He’s by far the best qualified man, but no. I really don’t.

DMX has had a rough road. Despite his success as a rapper and actor in the late '90s and early 2000s, he grew up in a rough neighborhood, suffered through an abusive childhood and went on to have a lot of trouble with the law, racking up arrests for drug possession, reckless driving, animal cruelty and more.
His personal life has also been a bit of a mess. He was married to Tashera Simmons for 11 years, but he had several extramarital affairs, which led to the birth of some of his 10 children.
With that kind of background, you might think he'd be the perfect candidate for Fix My Life, inspirational speaker Iyanla Vanzant's show on Oprah Winfrey's OWN Network.
