Born A Gangster: Beannca “Bebe” Catherine

Bebe Catherine was born & raised in Saint Catherine Parish. Also known as “Spanish Town”, St Catherine is a town located in the south east of Jamaica.

Born to a family of powerful gangsters, Bebe was introduced to the street lifestyle before she was born. Her mother, “Sandy” was 6 months pregnant with Bebe when she was sentenced to 6 years in Riker’s Island, New York city’s most dangerous prison on drug charges due to her alleged affiliation to Jamaica’s most feared criminal organization, The Shower Posse. Sandy’s charges were later overturned and she was extradited back to her homeland of Jamaica as a condition of her release.

Bebe grew up a privileged child due to her family’s power and wealth. She was raised with the most elite & influential and attended some of the best schools the island had to offer. Though Jamaica is known for its tropical blue skies and waters, beyond the breathtaking tourist attractions brews deadly street wars in which gangs battle to control the country’s drug trades. When she was a teenager, her mother sent her to the Untied States to live with family members in hopes of protecting her from  the extreme violence and dangerous conditions on the island.

As Bebe grew into adulthood the very same vices that her mother had hoped to protect her from, captivated her. She too began dating (and eventually married) an alleged high ranking member of The Shower Posse and had 2 children. Her story would be anything but a fairytale as her husband was later indicted on drug and gun charges in the much publicized raids of the international organization, then ran by Jamaican druglord Christopher ‘Dudus’ Coke. Bebe’s husband was sentenced to 14 years for his alleged involvement with the “Posse” which left her to fend for herself and her children. As many wives and girlfriends of gangsters often find themselves abandoned due to the repercussions of the streets, Bebe began making her rounds by collecting on debts owed to her husband. She eventually found herself knee-deep in the game, a choice that would cost her drastically.

Eventually she was indicted on her own charges and found herself back on Riker’s Island, this time as a mother herself. After spending almost 2 years in jail she was released on one condition, that she return to Jamaica –and never return to the United States.

Since arriving back in Jamaica, Bebe has made a choice not only change her lifestyle but to shield her children from the same pitfalls both she and her mother suffered from the streets. She now works with various charitable organizations such as The Prettie Committee, which supplies women of the island with trendy clothes, shoes, accessories, food, and household items. She also spends her spare pursing what she calls her “first tru love”, writing.

Diabolical Femme Fatales: Gangster’s Wives

As any solid movie buff knows, there’s a certain number of ingredients that go into making a movie about gang life. Whether it be the mob or street gangs, a crucial component in the world of those violent killers and drug-runners is the women that love them. They’re usually bad dames, dumb broads, or diabolical femme fatales that navigate the underworld just as deftly as the man (or men) they’re screwing (or screwing).

And because of their love for the dark side, we love them right back.

I bravely delved into the underworld to return with the 10 Sexiest Gangster Girlfriends and a few images that should act as a helpful visual aid. Plus, some of the movies on this list are a few of the best gangland films ever made so it’s okay if you start geeking out over the movies instead of the women.

Grab your tommy gun and check out these gorgeous molls – now in glorious chronological order!

10. Kitty from The Public Enemy (1931)

Sure, Jean Harlow is the buxom blonde love interest Gwen in the film (which gives me an excuse to put images of her in the photo gallery), but Mae Clark‘s Kitty steals the show in the most iconic scene. Besides, she’s also Tom Powers’s (James Cagney) main squeeze. Which probably explains why he shoves a grapefruit into her face. Although women didn’t play much of a role in this film beyond being eye candy for vicious thugs and furthering the iconic moll figure, The Public Enemy still stands as one of the grandfather’s of all gangster flicks. Plus, it launched Cagney’s career in a major way.

9. Verna from White Heat (1949)


Proof that James Cagney is not only a major gangster film figure, but that he also attracts the hottest females, his character Cody Jarrett is married to Verna (played by Virginia Mayo). She proves to be a devil in disguise, taking out the only woman he ever loved – his mother. Perhaps it’s that murderous streak that makes Verna so sexy.

8. Bonnie Parker from Bonnie and Clyde (1967)

There’s no denying that Faye Dunaway is gorgeous, but it turns out that Faye Dunaway packing heat is even better. Bonnie gets bonus points for being a member of the gang and for often being more malicious than her lover Clyde Barrow (played by Warren Beatty).

7. Anna from Get Carter (1971)


Appearing very naked in certain parts of the film, Britt Ekland plays Anna brilliantly. She exhibits an important rule for molls everywhere – why sleep with the boss, when you can also be sleeping with his best henchman? Especially if that henchman is played by Michael Caine, has his name in the title, and plans on running away to South America with you.

6. Elvira Hancock from Scarface (1983)


Oh, Michelle Pfeiffer, is there anyone else’s stomach we’d rather do blow off of? We’d be willing to buy you a Porsche 928 if you’d let us. It’s pretty clear why Elvira was able to catch the eye of both mob boss Frank and up-and-coming Tony Montana, but what’s unclear is why countless dorm rooms have posters of Al Pacino’s ugly mug when Elvira’s a lot prettier to look at.

5. Carol from Once Upon a Time in America (1984)


Yet again, another film that features two beautiful women to choose from. Elizabeth McGovern‘s character Deborah is definitely a high class girl looking to head to Hollywood, and Noodles does his best to impress her (mostly by raping her in the back of a limousine (classy!)), but the true siren of the film is Tuesday Weld as Carol (who Noodles only violently has sex with). Carol seems to have a heart lurking underneath it all, but damn if she doesn’t hang around some serious assholes.

4. Mia Wallace from Pulp Fiction (1994)


Not only is Mia married to the mob boss of all mob bosses, she also loves $5 milkshakes, doing the twist and OD’ing. What is it with mob wives and drug abuse? A better question: who didn’t fall in love with Uma Thurman as she sweated through her shirt and had a needle plunged right through her sternum into her heart? Sigh. I know I did. A bloody nose never looked so good.

3. Mary from Infernal Affairs (2002)


Mary plays such a small part in the movie (besides intercepting a certain important disc) that I couldn’t find a screenshot with her in it. However, Mary is included on the list because Sammi Cheng Sau-Man is hot. Although after watching the movie I’m confused as to whether she’s the wife of a cop or a gang member or both or neither. Feel free to watch The Departed if you want, but in my book, it’s Infernal Affairs all the way.

2. Eva Lucas from American Gangster (2007)


Eva, played by Lymari Nadal, is a Puerto Rican beauty queen. I’m not sure I need to say anything else on the subject, but luckily, her character raises an important question, too. Would you want to leave your husband if his rivals tried to kill you? What if it was Denzel Washington?

1. Martha Marlene from Sin Nombre (2009)


Diana Garcia’s character in this movie experiences something rare in the life of a gang girlfriend. For most of her relationship with El Casper, he keeps her hidden from his fellow gang members. Since, you know, gangs share everything. So essentially, she’s mostly not a gang-member girlfriend, spending her days rolling around in her underwear as sunlight beams into her room. That is until gang leader Lil’ Mago finds out she exists and demands that El Casper be generous with his young beauty.

Christopher “Dudus” Coke, the boss of the international criminal organization known as the “Shower Posse” or the “Presidential Click,” pleaded guilty in August 2011 to one count of racketeering conspiracy and one count of conspiracy to commit assault with a dangerous weapon in aid of racketeering.

Brandy, who holds Business degrees in International Marketing & Entertainment Management, put her skills to use behind the scenes  with Coke’s entertainment company Presidential Click which organized and sponsored the very popular west Kingston “Champions In Action” event.

Brandy’s career in the industry began at the age of 18 where she worked her way up from a front desk receptionist to A/R director for Southern Music Distribution, an independent music company in Atlanta, GA.

The daughter of a successful music executive, she was born into the entertainment industry and holds a unique skill set for negotiating.

A woman of her own street savvy skills, personality, and connections, she has become a successful business woman in the Marketing & Sales genre and credits her days of “running with the boys” for her teachings.

Like many other gangster molls, she was called into questioning regarding the business dealings of Presidential Click members, a record label allegedly established as an extension of the Shower Posse operations.

After weeks of questioning, she was eventually cleared of any wrongdoing, escaping jailtime, a move that many say, in a round about way, “Dudus” helped her maneuver by his guilty plea.

Stephen H Rosen, Coke’s Lawyer, who is based in Florida, told the Observer that his client’s decision to make a plea was in an effort to have any and all wiretap evidence thrown out.  His guilty plea avoided a lengthy and damaging trial, “I’m pleading guilty because I am,” The New York Times quoted Coke as telling Judge Robert P Patterson

Bebe, a close friend says, “Brandy is a strong chick, through most of the time she was going through all of this she was still carrying on as if nothing had happened. She buried herself into school and work and never spoke much about it, I would ask her about it occassionally but she would just brush it off or say everything was cool.”

In 2009, Brandy formed her own marketing and networking company & charity fundraising organization. Her charity helps provide clothing, food, and financial aid to family members in the poverty stricken Tivoli Gardens neighborhood of Jamaica, Chris Coke’s homeland, as well as Atlanta area neighborhoods where she resides.

Christopher “Dudus” Coke is serving a 23 yr prison sentence in a Federal Correctional Institution, Edgefield, in South Carolina. He is due to be released in the year 2030, and has requested to be deported back to his homeland of West Jamaica.

Though Christopher Coke is incarcerated, he still has a massive following of supporters. The “strongman” was often referred to as the “president” of his community and treated like royalty by neighborhood locals.

Brandy, who is now married to an alleged capo of the Black Mafia Family (BMF), is currently a digital filmmaking & video production student.

She also serves as a professional screenwriter of  independent films and is anticipated to co-produce a Docu-Film which will highlight the REAL inside story of the business savvy ex crime boss and his “soliders”.

She is expected to return to Mr Coke’s homeland neighborhood of Tivoli Gardens in 2014 to capture raw footage for the Independent Film Documentary: 

Last King of Jamrock
