Katie Price, formerly Jordan, explains why she made the agonizing decision to place her mentally disabled son Harvey Price in a home for full-time care.

The former model and TV star gave viewers an inside look into Harvey's transition to full-time care in her BBC show.

"Things change when you're 18 for anyone when you become an adult," Katie, 42, said in the trailer for the Saturday, January 16, episode of Katie Price: Harvey and Me.

"Harvey's got complex needs. I've got to let Harvey have the best shot at life as he can. As long as [he's] happy, I'm happy."

She announced her decision to place Harvey in a home on January 14, Us Weekly reported.

"It's so upsetting to think I won't see him every day but this is the best thing for Harvey and we have to think positively because I don't want him to think I'm just getting rid of him," the Love, Lipstick and Lies author explained to The Sun.

"This is his chance to live an independent life, learn skills and socialize with people other than me. I'm trying to get him used to me not being there all the time. But he'll call on his iPad and say, 'Mum, I need you,' and I run to him."

Harvey, 18, is Katie's first and only child by Trinidadian soccer player Dwight Yorke, 49. She bashed Yorke in a July 2020 social media post, writing, "Whether you want to be in your son's life or not, you still created him and he's still your son."

Harvey was born with septo-optic dysplasia, a condition that left him partially blind, and he is on the autism spectrum. He gains weight easily due to Prader-Willis syndrome. He is pictured at a family outing in 2006 with Katie and her first husband, singer Peter Andre, and their son Junior.

The family is pictured greeting Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II at the opening of a children's eye hospital in London in 2007.

Katie and Peter divorced in 2009. They share two children, Junior, 15, and Princess Tiaamii, 13.

She also has a 6-year-old daughter, Bunny, and 7-year-old son, Jett, by reality TV personality Kieran Hayler.

"The other kids are excited for him," Katie said, "they want to see what he can do. But I think they'll find it hard when he's not around on weekends. I need to learn to let go but it's tough — anyone in my position knows how hard it is. We have an incredible bond. I don't know how Harvey will react or how he'll feel when I can't get to him. It's too painful to think about."

A Fresh Prince of Bel-Air reboot drama is in the works. The original NBC television series (1990-1996) was a situational comedy starring Will Smith as a street smart kid from Philly who is shipped to stay with his uncle's family in Beverly Hills.

The new drama series, Bel-Air, is based on Morgan Cooper's viral YouTube trailer. The trailer, with updates from the original series producers Will Smith, Benny Medina and Quincy Jones, is currently being shopped to livestream networks, including HBO Max and Netflix.

Bel-Air is described as a dramatic spin on the original comedy TV series that launched Will Smith's career as an actor.

Sources tell The Hollywood Reporter that the new Bel-Air series has been in the works for more than a year after the 4-minute clip went viral in March 2019.

Cooper, a self-described Fresh Prince super-fan, created and directed the trailer that reimagines the series as a drama.

He will co-write the script, direct and be credited as a co-executive producer, according to THR.

The original series also starred James Avery, Alfonso Ribeiro, Karyn Parsons, Tatyana M. Ali, Joseph Marcell and Janet Hubert-Whitten/Daphne Maxwell Reid.

Smith has remained close with the cast, except for Hubert-Whitten.

Execs at Tyler Perry Studios and BET are nervous about the terrible online reviews of Tyler's new scripted BET drama The Oval.

The Oval stars Ed Quinn as Hunter Franklin, the newly-elected Democratic president of the United States, who moves his family into the White House.

Hunter, who is white, frequently locks horns with his handsome wife, Victoria Franklin (played by newcomer Kron Moore). Victoria, who is Black, violently objects to Hunter screwing his side pieces in the Oval Office.

To further complicate Victoria's life, the couple's biracial teenage daughter, Gayle (Paige Hurd) is a shameless slut who takes after her daddy. At least she prefers Black eye candy.

At issue for most Black women is Kron's portrayal of Victoria as the typical angry Black b*tch (a common theme in Tyler's TV shows and movies).

It isn't clear what direction Tyler is taking The Oval in, but his female fans aren't willing to go along for the ride.

Fans want to support the 50-year-old Virgo, who owns the biggest Black-owned independent film studio in America. But Black women are growing tied of supporting a Black man who constantly portrays them in a negative light.

"I love Tyler Perry but I am looking for a different type of product from him," wrote one disgusted YouTube viewer.

Another annoyed viewer wrote, "What are you saying about black people that even in the White House, it's just sex and ratchetness. [sic] Wish this was a little more thought provoking, like hitting current events. Especially in an election year. Pass."

A third viewer wrote: "Another over-the-top, ridiculous fantasy melodrama from Tyler Perry. No thanks."

A male viewer wrote: "Another bedwench show trying to force race mixing".

With reviews like these BET execs are reportedly considering revamping a couple of troublesome episodes before the series debuts next Wednesday, Oct. 23.

An insider who attended a recent screening of The Oval in Atlanta whispered to Sandrarose.com, "Girl, you could hear a pin drop in the room when the preview ended."

Question: Ladies, do you plan to watch The Oval?
