3. Shaniece, Save Evelyn’s Life
Evelyn may be a volatile personality who tends to look at life through a circus mirror, but her daughter Shaniece seems fairly levelheaded. Evelyn, who says that her daughter has been her “rock through all this madness,” kept it all the way funky with her mom over her foolish mistake of marrying Chad Johnson. Ever blunt, Shaniece told her mama, “I didn’t like him from the beginning, so that’s just gotten bigger. I feel like I voiced my opinion to you about him. I feel like you don’t listen.” To which Evelyn says, “I know.”
As Evelyn stands her ground, professing that she doesn’t date someone to appease others, Shaniece counters by noting that when everyone you know dislikes the person you’re dating, perhaps that's clues 1 through 17 that maybe you ought to ditch him. Evelyn counters again arguing, “I wouldn’t say everyone.” A stone-faced Shaniece says, “Nobody likes him.”
It’s fascinating to watch people paid to expose their lives to a national audience have not the slightest bit of self-awareness in their natural habit. Like, it doesn’t matter if you were “damn near perfect” in your relationship with Chad, Evelyn. Your daughter is explaining to you that those closest to you did not approve of the relationship and had fears for the fate of it, and yet, you remain defensive about it despite him proving them right.
