Even worse, they say their father, John, is putting his life at risk every single day because they claim their mom regularly abuses him. They claim their mom pushes, hits and chokes their dad, and once, even threw a hammer at him. They claim their mom regularly threatens to kill their father and leaves death threats in voicemails.

Shelly completely denies she is abusive to anyone in the family and says her family is to blame for her drinking. In fact, Shelly claims she’s the real victim in all of this and that her husband is actually abusing her and supplying her with alcohol.
