She was tired of doing all the work raising the kids and running the house, while her husband just sat back and let everything happen around him. She said she loved Jerald, but didn't feel in love with him anymore. She also had a very immature habit of name-calling, verbally sparring with her kids, and making empty threats. Although, she didn't like her husband being lazy. However, she was seen being lazy sometimes. For example, when Eulisis (Shorty) peed in the store, she was making excuses like: Oh he's just tired, it was just an accident without consequences. Like Beverly Froebrich, she was very rude to Desiree during homework time. But her behavior was worse than Beverly's behavior.
She was 29 years old at the time and she is now 37 in 2018.
