Rachel says her adult stepson, Devan, is “really struggling” with a “failure to launch.”

“Although he’s 28 years old, he’s really acting like he’s 15,” she says, noting that Devan is having a difficult time paying rent and in his relationship with his father, her ex-husband, Howard.

“Howard is a very strict parent, although it goes beyond strict, to structured in an unrealistic way,” says Rachel.

Rachel claims that she has a stronger connection to Devan than he does to his biological parents. And later, Howard claims he’s spent tens of thousands of dollars over the years paying Devan’s rent and bailing him out of jail while Devan figures out what he wants to do with his life.
