I don’t know how June has managed to raise 4 strong, independent daughters with the totally crappy upbringing they have had. June has thrown them over for any scummy man that looked at her twice.
But despite this, Anna is a young mother smart enough and has enough self respect to cut ties with her mother even if it meant losing out on the reality show paycheck. Jessica has done the same, and is on her way to becoming a nurse, or at least that’s the last I heard. Lauryn has become an advocate for her little sister and has stood up to June in ways that take a lot of courage. Josh has backed her up and is showing that he has great strength of character for such a young man. And Alana just wants to be a happy kid who has crushes on boys and is exploring her talents, but the ugly specter of June and her messed up life is ruining her childhood. I feel nothing but empathy for those girls, and nothing but contempt for June who is allowing all of this to happen.
