September 26, 2012, Silver Spring, MD - TV One's popular series "Life After" returns for a fourth season on Monday, October 8 at 9pm ET. Exploring the turning point in celebrities' careers that altered their lives forever, the half-hour series highlights these moments from the point of view of the celebrity and those in their inner circle.

Those featured in the fourth season of the series will include:

· Marla Gibbs - the television icon looks back at her career on a string of television hits including "The Jeffersons" and the 80's hit show, "227."

· BernNadette Stanis - the actress tells the riveting story of her path from the Brownsville projects in Brooklyn to television stardom as TV's first black "It" girl as Thelma on "Good Times."

· Mablean Ephriam - famous for her tough love, witty comebacks and trademark phrase, "Look deep before you leap," one of TV's favorite judges shares her incredible journey from working as a prison correctional officer to presiding over "Divorce Court."

· Camille Winbush - from her big break at age 11 on "The Bernie Mac Show" to her struggle with Mac's death in 2008, the actress recounts her path to an incredible career as an performer, businesswoman, and teen spokesmodel.

· Regina Belle - the singer discusses her struggle to overcome brain cancer amidst a musical career that has taken her from enchanting audiences worldwide with "A Whole New World," in Disney's Aladdin to performing opera, R&B and gospel.

· Marion Jones - the Olympic medalist will reveal the anguish and humiliation she endured after it was discovered that she used performance-enhancing drugs and was stripped of her medals, banned from track and field, and sent to prison.

· Tiffany Pollard - the larger-than-life reality television personality rose to stardom as "New York," on VH1's hit show "Flavor of Love" before going on to star in her own spin-off reality shows and pursue roles in feature-length films.

· Dionne Warwick - the five-time Grammy winner who has an impressive track record of 56 singles on the Billboard Hot 100 List is now prepping for her 50th anniversary album and actively promoting AIDS awareness around the world.

"Life After reveals the side of celebrities we don't often get to see - the human side," explains Toni Judkins, TV One Executive Vice President of Original Programming and Production. "We've cheered their successes and wept for their losses. Life After allows the celebs we think we know, to share intimate secrets, reveal the lessons learned on their journey, and bring us closer to their true selves."
