Life after leaving the show
Her life has been in a type of limbo while waiting for court dates and settlement hearings. Since leaving she hasn’t stayed in any one place for very long and says that, “Being displaced without having a home of your own is overwhelming and daunting for me but I am honored to have the love in the support of my loving and supportive friends, without them this would be unbearable.” Now she is busy reconnecting with family and friends as she regroups and decides on her next course of action. She now plans to move to a small town in British Columbia, Canada so that she can be near her youngest daughter.
Plans for future
