As family members pointed fingers, Vanzant pointedly reminded them of their own messes.

“She’s been on probation. You [were] drunk. She was gambling. What the hell! How do y’all get to talk about each other!” said Vanzant, omitting a reference to a bullying sister in that summation of the sisters’ flaws. “If we don’t get this cleared out, this whole family is going to implode.”

Turns out some of those bad behaviors were first demonstrated to the daughters by their mom, whose secret was gently uncovered by Vanzant. Miss Gwen’s 47-year marriage to the attention-starved girls’ father had its problems. Miss Gwen, who apologized for falling short, also admitted to being jealous of her daughters because her world seemed limited to being a wife and mother. Vanzant implored the daughters to thank their mother “because she did the best she could.”
