Season 5 Episode 8
Addiction: Primarily meth, but she’ll do pretty much anything that gets her high. She’s also bulimic.
What’s memorable: How everyone waits on her hand and foot and tiptoes around her constantly, and she’s completely abusive to them. And the boyfriend John. Oy vey! So weak when it comes to her, so enabling. And what the hell was with him watching her as she got ready for a date, after driving 7 hours to see her? Makes me wonder if it was an escort-type date, not a real date. Not confirmed, just guessing. Also it’s interesting that she got addicted to drugs because they were a way to lose weight. I wonder how many people have got addicted that way.
Official Synopsis: Once a successful hairstylist, Casie now works in a small-town salon to fuel her $500-a-week meth habit. Casie’s childhood was marred by her mother’s drug addiction. Suffering from low self-esteem, Casie became bulimic and an addict. She lost her career, her life’s savings, and her husband. Casie’s mother now tries to make up for Casie’s difficult childhood by enabling her, even at the cost of her own marriage. Casie’s boyfriend, John, also an addict, is desperately trying to keep her alive. Casie’s drug use is taking everyone down with her.
Original Air Date: January 2009
I wonder how her bf/ex John is doing…..
he’s on ig tho he doesn’t post much… but his work was linked and he’s still on their page! seems healthy
Would be nice to get an update how things are now. My goodness the stepdad bein so left out. And he was such a good guy. Wonder if they’re still together.
In this episode I appreciated Casie’s honesty… I could definitely relate to a lot of the things she said.
I agree I did appreciate casies honesty also
Does anyone know of Casie’s progress? John? I sure hope that Hank is doing well and that his wife realizes she’s very lucky to have a good man in her life.
Wish nothing but the best for all of them.
I have a friend who knows her and says that she has a son now, he was born shortly after she got sober.
Just like my mamma but I still love my mamma
This episode made me cry. Case reminded me so much of myself. I also felt so sad for her mom I really hope they’re both doing good today
She on Facebook under Casie Florance. She looks like she’s doing good and now married.
Sorry everyone it’s actually Casie James. Florance must be her maiden name.
We were in cosmetology together..its so heartbreaking watching this episode..shocking also
What is johns name?
Dies anyone know her ex boyfriend Johns last name? He looks familiar
Based on her Facebook profile, she’s doing amazing! She’s married with two children and she has found faith in God. A complete turn around from where she was when she was on the show. I would post a link to her Facebook but I don’t know how to do that but you can look her up. She now goes by Casie James (Florance)
casie treated everyone, particularly her mother and stepfather, sooo badly and i hate how everyone allowed it! so nasty, abusive, obnoxious, and sarcastic. she recognized it though and i believe was sorry, but still. i didn’t like the way casie AND her mother treated the stepdad. they both made him feel unwanted and unneeded, like he wasn’t even part of the family. he was a good guy. i’d be SO surprised if the mom and stepfather were still together today. and lastly, it bothered me how the bf was at casie’s beck and call. he was late for the pre-intervention bc he had to do her yard work and laundry? really? ugh. how is that more important?? i mean, i get why they all put up with it. it’s codependency and enabling and it’s easy to make these judgements from the outside looking in. bc i’ve been there so i have no room to talk. i’ve been in relationships where i’ve put up with wayyyyy more than i should have. and i’m not judging, just making observations.
Is this her? It sure looks like her.. https://www.instagram.com/hair_garage/
Yes that is her. Ive seen a couple of those pics on her fb page.
Looks like the boyfriend didn’t do so well…
Really doesn’t look like him. And these are from TN when the episode takes place in TX so I think it’s unlikely. Thanks for your research though!
It does say on the show he lives 7 hours away and visits every weekend, so it could be.
Okay, does no one else see that Hank is the worst???? He DEFINITELY baits her. Everything he says to her is worded so selfishly and when he reads his letter at the end, he is clearly inhaling into his nose louder to make it sound like he is holding back tears. It sounds so fake, it’s plain as day. I think he was hugely detrimental to the intervention as a whole, and definitely should have been made to stay away from the beginning. He is definitely displaying many psychopathic traits. I also wonder if maybe he did something to her at some point? So he steamrolls her and pretends and forces himself into the safe space of her intervention to make sure she can’t say anything.
Omg yes! Casies mom was right, he shouldn’t be allowed to take part on the intervention at first. Every move or word of him was not for help Casie, but to be mean to her.
He didn’t show any genuine love, care or even worry about casie. He just seemed to hate her and wanting her out of their lives. He played the victim and wore a mask of “good guy making effort to be tough bc its necessary to save casie’s life” just to feel free to throw shite at her when she was most vulnerable. It was coward and abusive.
Couldn’t agree more. There is definitely a glaring part missing, one which would cause such self hate – As if no survivor were watching these victims.
Her instagram is @ck13ck …looks like she’s doing well!
Looks like she found tattoos and bodybuilding!
I think this is her Instagram
This is her Facebook. She looks fantastic!
This one always made me mad. I’m not a fan of Ken’s style anyway, but this family was literally angry because they had nothing to threaten her with. And John…poor John. He came to the pre-intervention after working and doing chores and dealing with Casie who was apparently having an extremely bad day addiction-wise, and they all talk to him like dirt because he was late. Like it was just a bunch of excuses and you could tell it wasn’t, especially considering to even get there he had to bring her with him. He’s doing everything and they’re doing nothing and they still thought they had a right to bitch about it. Something else was up in that family. I guess this is where they felt like they were at with her addiction, but they get under my skin WAY more than the actual addicts in this case.
My friend’s partner is an alcoholic with BPD and you just described his situation to a tee.
Did she marry the other guy that was at her intervention? That kind of who he looks like.
Lord I hope she didn’t marry the other guy “Chip”. I think they ALL seem like a judgemental sacks of shhh. But her Mom.. I think her Mom was trying! They should have excluded ole Hank…maybe even from her entire life!! I hope that she’s doing well! I also hope that Mama is doing well, as well as the boyfriend John, who is TRYING & just seems like a lost soul.
I realize my comments are way late & I see the true outcome.. but I wanted to add my opinion about the family cuz even tho I’m just now watching the episode for the 3rd time, for some reason this time I just can’t shake the bad vibes these people give off!!!
Nope she married to me Justin James we have been married 10 years and have 3 boys. She is still a stylist with her own salon that we work at together. She worksout everyday. I’ve never seen her episode though. I didn’t marry the woman in that show. But we are extremely happy and busy. Thank ya’ll
At the rehab I worked at one lady started drugs to lose weight. Broke my heart!
