Throughout the show, Joseline made references to how she grew up, saying that she was under the care of multiple men and came from a rather large family. The conversation with her parents started off with Joseline’s mother telling her that they feared they would never see her again and she thought that Joseline had completely forgotten about her family. Joseline responded saying that she felt like her mother never really cared about her and always put herself first:
“She really wasn’t no mother to me. She really was just in her own little world…”
In the midst of it, Joseline admitted to using drugs at one point and becoming a stripper at a very young age:
“And I know she did drugs before and it’s okay ‘cause I’ve done drugs before too, cause I didn’t know any better. But that pushed me to stripping at 16 years old and doing everything at a young age”
Joseline’s mother admitted herself that she drank, was on drugs and ran the streets a lot but Joseline’s parents told her that she shouldn’t place all the blame on them for what happened. And this was when the conversation came to an abrupt end as Joseline walked out in the midst of it. Looking at what kind of effect talking with her parents had on her shows that Joseline hasn’t gotten over her rough childhood.
