ghoulina September 3, 2015 Share September 3, 2015 About Leah, (and I have no proof to back this up), I think that she was abused or molested by one of Mama Dawn's boyfriends/husbands/cousins. It would explain the overt favoritism Mama Dawn shows to Leah over her other kids, Leah's maturity stopping at 13-14 I've long thought this, but thought maybe I was reading too much into things, so I never said anything. It's nice to see I'm not the only one. The way Mama Dawn favors her has always been weird to me, because it didn't necessarily come across as "You're just so awesome and I love you the best". It always seemed more, to me, like she was trying to keep Leah happy. Like she owed her. And then I read about how she had a bad marriage and has been through all this crap. Leah lets new guys around her daughters within in days of knowing them, so I wondered if this was a learned behavior. You'd almost think she would more hesitant and protective of her girls, if she had been molested herself. But I see this (if it happened) as something Leah never really dealt with. No therapy, no confronting the dude, nothing. In her head, she might think something was mutual or her fault or nothing really happened, etc. But there is really just something off about Leah and Dawn's relationship. I could be really reaching, but I'd be lying if I said I hadn't thought about this several times. 4 Link to comment
