Plot Synopsis

Narrated by Remy Ma, MY TRUE CRIME STORY is a one-hour true-crime docuseries that features first-person stories of real people mixed up in headline-grabbing crimes. Told by the people who lived through these life-changing misadventures, each 60-minute episode features ordinary people with good intentions who commit scandalous criminal activities and ultimately find redemption. In the series opener, Shawana King started out just wanting to help her family live a better life. She transforms her boyfriend's small-time credit card hustle into a big business, reselling electronics for millions. It's all going so well until she ends up behind bars. Other stories in the eight-episode first season include cases of international smuggling, million dollar jewelry heists, bank robbery, and drug trafficking. When it all comes crashing down, was it worth it?

The eight-episode second season of MY TRUE CRIME STORY premiered on Monday, August 29, 2022 at 10pm ET/PT on VH1, with Remy Ma returning to narrate. Season 2 continues to follow ordinary people who got caught up in outrageous, unlawful crimes ranging from drug trafficking and steroid production to counterfeiting and jewelry theft. In the season opener, Aethena Striplin started hustling to survive transforming herself from a teen mom selling vials to a queen-pin raking in over 30-thousand a week. Aethena eventually finds herself behind bars, wondering how she will get back to life with her daughters.
