The show features lots of tears, airing dirty laundry and family dysfunction as the moms and daughters get to grips with the root causes of their problems. It was a process that Nunn said reveals the more gentle part of her personality as she tries to address her “bad girl ways.”
“All the shows I’ve ever been on, I’ve been like ‘I’m the baddest.’” Nunn said. “But it all stems from something, and that’s what we focused on for the show.”
Nunn doesn’t completely abandon her bad girl persona. She said she got into it with her cast mates as well as the show’s resident therapist, Dr. Debbie, and there was lots of crying, yelling and even breakdowns.
But despite the show’s tense moments, Nunn said the experience only made her relationship with her mother stronger and helped her take a hard look at her behavior.
