“My mom is crazy, controlling and evil. My mom has tried sabotaging my jobs, got me kicked off of properties. She has ruined my relationship with every man I have been with,” says Amanda. “I despise my mother. I don’t want anything to do with her.”

“Amanda has always told me that she hopes my plane crashes and the happiest day of her life will be when I die,” says Lisa. “Amanda tells us that she is no longer taking prescription pills but when she comes to our house, she’s either manic or she acts insane,” claims Lisa.
Amanda’s parents have had custody of Amanda’s 4-year-old son and 13-year-old daughter for the last two years, because, they say, Amanda is unfit. They say if Amanda doesn’t change her behavior, they are going to file a restraining order against her.
“Amanda is homeless, jobless and I just don’t feel that she is fit to be a parent,” says Lisa.

“My mom had CPS maliciously take my kids away from me by telling them I was selling drugs, beating my child, selling myself,” Amanda says. “My mom tries to make it look like she’s good, and she’s doing all this … The truth is my mom’s just pure evil.”
