  1. Please do tell about the follow-up…

    OK, so I just went on the a&e website and could access the follow-up video and believe it or not, but the bitchiest abusive bitch queen mother of denial and manipulativeness has been sober since August 1st, 2011. This is all the more surprising that she throw a fit at the rehab manager right the second she checks in!

  4. Yes on the show she had only a son but afterwards she ended up havin a daughter. I found both her and her moms fb. Too bad if she’s not clean anymore seemed like she was tryin to stay on the right path and her son and daughter are both so adorable.

  5. Those grandparents! In a way, I feel bad because I think this is so, so far outside their comprehension. But to actively sabotage the intervention by calling her and then acting like, “Well, we told you she wouldn’t go.” is so incredibly frustrating.

    • I have never wanted to slap a senior citizen until the grandfather. And for him to have the gall to say he didn’t want someone coming into his house to pick up Tiffany…really? They didn’t want to understand, and if the grandfather and Tiffany’s father were anything alike, they would just be contrary because they wanted to be. I was so angry.

  6. I watched this episode again last night. The attitude this trick has is almost too unbearable to watch. I’ve got a personal list of the Top 5 Most Unlikeable Addicts/Alcoholics on the show, and this girl is on the list.

    • I am curious to know who your others are, because I’ve got a list too. I haven’t seen this episode yet, however.

      • Her episodes coming on tonight if you want to watch it, but her attitude is pure trash and her grandparents may be the worst case of enabling I have ever seen

        • Of the grandparents, I think the grandfather is the worst enabler, ,but maybe I’m wrong.

    • This is a person, someone’s daughter and someone’s mom. She shouldn’t have taken drugs, true, but still deserves respect.

      • I get your point of view. I have to say that I don’t intend to be disrespectful when I voice my frustrations. I make poor word choices. Still, I have a very hard time respecting her. I get her trauma and pain. The choice she made to start up with drugs is understandable, although one I would not do, and never have done.

        The problem lies in her not having much insight on her actions due to the drugs. She does horrendous things. She is disrespectful in her actions, and for me it’s a knee jerk reaction to tag her with disrespectable descriptions.

        Sadly, she is at the point that she doesn’t respect herself. Her judgment being clouded by drug addiction. It’s a swamp of disrespect.

        She deserves compassion, but needs to earn the lost respect from her family and friends. That’s what rehab teaches you.

  7. I cannot really tell anything from the FB posts, but good luck Tiffany. This episode always stuck out in my mind & when I’d ask about it, people often would say I must be talking about Cristy… the skin, the picking, the helium? Either way… one day at a time girl. Sometimes we have to go through hell.

  8. This is the episode they need to be showing in Health class in High school. Tiffany was once a very pretty girl with a bright future. She’s charismatic and did not appear to grow up poor, from what can be told from the episode. This is the kind of girl you definitely know, or did know, and she either has worked with you went to school with you, or was a friend of a friend. Neglect, sexual abuse, and abandonment know no demographic boundaries, and Tiffanys’ story is the ultimate horror outcome for families. he has to be the biggest tweaker on this show by far and the damage she’s done to her face and body should be enough to scare the shit out most people. That girl is fucked for life.

  9. I thought this episode was Candy at her finest. If it’s not her best it’s in the top 5. She never lost focus of trying to get Tiffany into treatment despite the threats and the manipulations, and despite the grandparents’ sabotaging the intervention.

  10. I screamed so loud when she picked her face that my mom came into the room to make sure I was okay LOL

  11. Why don’t these people get arrested for assaulting people? This chick headbutted her mom. And she gets to walk away? Candy’s reaction to her telling her mom that it was her fault she uses was terrific.

  12. This is my brothers ex 😐 their boy is doing great, however. He has a fantastic daddy.

  13. i have an extremely INTENSE dislike for tiffany. she treats her family like SHIT. and the assault of her mother…… and the grandparents GRRRRR. remember in another episode an addict (can’t remember his name) threatened jeff and they used it as a bottom line? if he didn’t go to rehab they were going to have him arrested for threatening violence or something? why didn’t they use that here? she actually assaulted her mother AND the camera person.

  14. Any recent updates on her? Just watched the episode and man it was intense. I went to her FB and there’s a post in Jan. 2019 of just gibberish like adlk;jfaoeiprq89- and then nothing. Nothing on her Mom’s FB either re: update on her.

  15. Tiffany is honestly in my top 5 also of least likable addicts. She is horrible to her mother and grandparents. Then during the intervention she attacked her brothers and mother. She needs probably more than just rehab. I recall in the beginning her stepdad talkin about her stabbing him.. why didn’t she go to jail? Guessing mom talked him out of pressing charges maybe? The grandparents are on another level of enabling but a lot of older people think that way so it wasn’t a total shock honestly. It’s sad to see these updates and that she hasn’t changed. I think they should’ve used Donna or Ken instead of candy she wasn’t very effective. I feel like Donna would’ve been the one to threaten her with jail also Ken or Jeff. Candy is a little more passive in her approach. Anyone else think that they could’ve used a different interventionist for her?
