“It was my intent to come and visit you [at college], and because of my mistakes, I wasn’t able to come,” Shannon tells Stella. “I feel bad. I’m so sorry and humiliated that I disappointed you.”

“Like, what kind of example am I at 59?” she asks.

Stella and her sisters tell their mother they are “glad that you’re okay and no one was hurt.”

“I got in an accident seconds later because I revved up the engine so he could know how mad I was, and I lost control of the car immediately,” she claims.

Shannon adds, “Never broken a bone, I’ve never had a concussion, I’ve never been in an accident, I’ve never been arrested, never had a DUI, and I did all that in 10 seconds.”
