Christa says she wrote into the show because she’s been in a divorce battle with her husband, John, for two years, and their 16-year-old son is well aware of the chaos in the household.

Christa calls her soon-to-be ex a “pathological liar” and compares him to Ted Bundy. John calls Christa a "pill head" and "the devil." Their son, Jake, says he prefers to play video games 24/7 to keep his mind from the family’s troubles. According to his parents, he’s currently refusing to go to school and band, went from honor roll to failing some classes, and is getting violent with his family. Christa confronts John about their opposing parenting styles and divorce drama in an attempt to secure a future for their teen before it’s too late.
