It’s a day both Sharae Scott and Anthony Redding have been waiting for—his first day out of prison. For Anthony, a former convict who served seven years for second-degree burglary, this moment is monumental. He’s the first to admit that his past decisions were far from ideal, but the experience has reshaped him.
“[The sentence] served its purpose. I learned a major lesson,” Anthony said in a confessional, adding that he has no intention of returning to his previous life of crime.
The first thing he did after his release? Say goodbye to his prison uniform. Sharae Scott had a brand new set of clothes ready for him, a symbolic way of starting anew. Life After Prison: What Does Reintegration Look Like? provides an in-depth look at how challenging this process can be.
As they drove away from the prison, Anthony was fixated on the sheer joy of being in a car without shackles. For Sharae, however, her thoughts were a bit more… physical. She was all eyes for Anthony’s newly toned body.
“I want you to get me in shape,” she flirtatiously told him.
Love After Lockup: The Struggle for Control: Sharae’s Itinerary Meets Resistance
But it wasn’t all smooth sailing. Sharae Scott had planned an itinerary for their first day together, only to find Anthony less than enthusiastic. “It looks like I have no choice but to go with the flow, huh?” he commented, making it abundantly clear how he felt about her controlling the day’s events.
When Sharae’s phone alarm went off, signaling it was time for lunch, Anthony seized the moment to make a point. He told her the most challenging part of prison was following a stringent routine and not having the freedom to control his own time.
“Your itinerary feels like prison,” he bluntly told her.
This led to a deeper conversation about whether Sharae’s penchant for planning would be a turn-off for him. “Yes, that is going to be a turn-off,” he replied, putting an end to any ambiguity.
Love After Lockup: From High School Sweethearts to Tangled Lives
Sharae Scott and Anthony Redding’s relationship isn’t a new chapter; it’s a revisiting of an old book, fraught with issues. They dated in high school and reconnected years later, only to be plagued by secrets and deception. Even the notion of their “jail wedding” was put into question when Anthony revealed a bombshell: he was already married.
Sharae’s reaction? Surprisingly forgiving. She wants to tell their families that they’re already married, a move that could either be incredibly smart or terribly foolish. But for now, they’re living life as husband and wife, at least in their own little world.
This begs the question: how long can they keep up this charade? Especially when shows like Love After Lockup have a history of exposing the murkiest of secrets. Only time will tell. In the meantime, be sure to follow WEtv for the latest updates on this perplexing couple.
