Kristin says when she was in the sixth grade, and a contestant in a national pre-teen beauty pageant, Marna pulled the focus away from Kristin by getting drunk in front of the other pageant moms.

“I was trying to better myself and my education, and she basically took that away from me,” says Kristin in the video above.
