We all know the old saying grass is green on the other side well, Rhonda could never find the shade of grass she wanted. We ended up moving to Black*shear to live with her dad and stepmother (Faye).

But, Arica knew that she had to do something. The girls were starving. The only time they saw Rhonda was when she was pick them up from school. Other than that they were pretty much on her own.
