omg! she should never see day light again let alone her kid or her ex. no one should ever be treated that way. and he stands there so calmly the entire time. i dont know how he doesnt raise his voice, i would have gladly pushed her down a flight of stairs. she is totally abusive it doesnt matter if shes smaller than him, shes disgusting.

I seriously think they need to drug test her...With that temper and drastic weight loss it all points to speed or cocaine.And again a prime example of that vicious cycle of violence passed on to our next generation due to the fact of the child seeing this occur.I suggest they get her under control and rehab...YOU CAN LEAD A HORSE TO WATER BUT YOU CANNOT MAKE THEM DRINK..She is in denial and refuses to be responsible..JAIL HER AND PLACE THE CHILD WITH DAD
