He could have written a career advice book or maybe even relationship book but “E!” anchor/actor Terrence J. decided to honor the person he considers most responsible for his success – his mother, Lisa. His new book “The Wealth of My Mother’s Wisdom: The Lessons That Made My Life Rich” is about he and his mother’s journey to success.
The North Carolina native’s mother was 17 when he was born and Terrence, born Terrence Jenkins was raised without his biological father. Now of course, he’s a TV talk show host and an actor who’s appeared in both “Think Like A Man” movies and in the new movie “Baggage Claim,” with Paula Patton and Jill Scott out Friday.
“She’s an amazing woman,” Terrence, 31, told the Tom Joyner Morning Show. “When I look back at the decisions that she made – I never met my biological father, my mom just kind of raised me and kept me off the street and kept me away from drugs and now that I’m an adult I really respect her and appreciate her path.”
