Urgh! It's so hectic how Mama June can be such abusive scum to her children and yet she's the star of her own show - a real sign of the times - and TLC.

The Elizabeth Smart documentary looks facsinating because of her being involved and telling the story herself instead of everyone else doing the talking for her.

A location tidbit on Onder die Suiderkrius... it was filmed in the Western Cape.
