Thelma says her ex-daughter-in-law Kim is a "wicked, evil, horrible person,” and she wants her to stay away from her family. "Kim has totally destroyed my son's and the grandkids' lives,” she says. “Kim does not deserve these beautiful children. I hate what she has done to my son and my grandchildren."
Thelma says when she was awarded emergency custody of her six grandchildren a year ago, they told her stories about what they claim life was like with their mom, including that Kim used drugs, would walk around the house naked, and would even urinate on the floor of their own home. "I was told that she would bring other men into the house," she adds. "I can only assume that it was [for] drugs and sex."
Kim vehemently denies the accusations and says she’s a good mother. “I would walk through the pits of hell for my kids,” she says, adding that she just wants to be a part of her children’s lives. She claims Thelma is on a crusade to destroy her. "My mother-in-law is spreading lies about me, my children and her own son," she says. "Thelma tells my kids I'm a bitch, I'm evil, I'm a whore, I'm Satan's spawn ... I honestly think Thelma's whole purpose is to ruin me. I think that if I were to die, she would probably do a happy dance on my grave. She's a disgusting woman. I hate her with every ounce of my being."
