One of the couples featured in season 2 of the popular WETV program Love during Lockup is Louie and Melissa. They were best friends in high school but moved into different social circles. When Melissa was having problems finding the right man, fate brought her and Louie together. She got to know Louie in high school and remembers his being “like hot,” in the trailer.
Welcome to Love During Lockup’s Melissa’s bio where you’ll learn details regarding her last name, age, job, and more.
Is Love During Lockup Melissa Still With Louie?
The Jersey girl Melissa and the bad boy Louie had occasionally crossed paths in high school, but they always ran in different circles. When Melissa was working as a mail carrier, she saw some prisoner letters that motivated her to write to Louie while he was incarcerated. She is utterly in love with him, but her vocal family is against their union.
In the teaser, Melissa can be seen dressing up as his cheerleader during one of their video conversations and, in spite of his protests, flashing him from outside the prison. As she gets ready to go to Georgia to be with her boyfriend, Melissa joins a prison wives club for assistance because she battles with loneliness while Louie is incarcerated.
Louie did not like the entire encounter, especially Melissa distantly flashing her breasts at him. They have been friends for a long time, and in addition to visiting him at work, Melissa is also in town to see Louie in jail.
It appears as though Louie may be at a sizable repair shop when Melissa pays him a visit at work, albeit from across a sizable field so she isn’t immediately noticed. It’s possible that Louie works on trucks while he’s on work release from prison because the parking lot is full of semi trucks and other work trucks.
Welders may also use the facilities. Inmates in Georgia have access to a variety of prison work release programs, including painting and bodywork for government cars and trucks, other jobs including mechanics for gas and diesel cars and trucks, road construction, and facility upkeep.
It’s obvious that Louie still has a set of regulations to obey when he’s on the job, regardless of what he does for a living during his work release program. He is angry when Melissa flashes him in the video. He admits to her that he is unsure of what will happen if he gets in trouble as a result of Melissa’s unexpected visit.
“I mean, I came all this way and I just wanted to see you,” Melissa states.
Since she developed a crush on Louie in high school, Melissa hasn’t actually seen him in person. As they wait for his release, they may become more than just pen buddies in jail.
We also see Louie’s mom on the show who put Melissa in her place for an “impulsive” visit to his job. Melissa flew hours out of her state to Georgia in order to spy on Louie as he participated in his work release program since she was so desperate to see him. After her unplanned visit, Melissa sits down with Louie’s mother to tell her about the far-off experience.
From Friday’s episode, an exclusive WeTV clip reveals how angry Louie’s mother is about Melissa’s uninvited visit. When Louie’s mother confronts Melissa about why she showed up at her house so late, Melissa tells the truth. Melissa replies, “Because I actually did get to see Louie”. Louie’s mother appears visibly surprised. She says, “Excuse me.
Melissa continues by revealing how she spied on him while driving a considerable distance to his work release program.
“We don’t put Louie in jeopardy,” his mom quips. “I want him to come home, so don’t do that,” she adds. Melissa explains how she only wanted to get a “peek” at Louie and admits her visit was “impulsive” and not the best decision.
Moreover, she also meets Louie’s former boss Dirk and talks about her boyfriend. Dirk says, “He was an alcoholic even before he was working here.” However, according to Dirk, Oxycot*n got him. In confessional, Melissa questions if she is with an actual addict and what she is getting herself into. She also feared about things that she might say that would trigger him to relapse.
