Things heat up in a preview clip for Lifetime Pride: A Tale of Seven Deadly Sins.
Grammy-winning Stephanie Mills stars in the film as bakery owner and “Birdie Moore” reality TV star.
The video shows Birdie and her son Gabe (Thomas “Nephew Tommy” Miles) arguing over another family member getting half of Birdie’s business.
“She gets the half that would have belonged to your sister,” Birdie says to a furious Gabe.
“My sister isn’t here,” Gabe retorts to his mother. “I am! I was the one who put on all the fuss.

The film is based on real events and follows Birdie as her world begins to crumble when her family’s secrets come to the surface. To save her legacy, she must let go of the pride that led to a rift with her daughter. Birdie’s pride also keeps her from seeing that Gabe is actually a thieving opportunist and that her granddaughter Ella (Keeya King) is a lost twenty-something trying to rebuild her life.
