Most people love watching drama on TV, as it’s somehow entertaining. But, sometimes, you don’t need to look too far for drama. After all, almost every family has its own drama. And some don’t seem to care who knows about it!
We often hear about mother-in-laws and daughter-in-laws not getting along. Well, recently, a mother-in-law and a daughter-in-law from a certain local livestreaming family had a falling out. As it turns out, it was over washing some underwear!
Earlier this month, the mom, aka the mother-in-law, had been doing a live stream when the topic came up. She offhandedly mentioned that as she was busy with streaming, she had no time to wash her own underwear. However, things took a different turn when she complained that her daughter-in-law had not volunteered to help her wash her underwear.
Her youngest daughter overheard the complaint and decided to be helpful. She then ended up asking her sister-in-law to help wash the underwear. Needless to say, it left the woman aggrieved as she wondered why she had been tasked with washing her mother-in-law’s underwear. Still, she did as asked. However, she later brought up the issue to her husband, hoping he would help resolve the issue.
To her horror, they only ended up arguing about the issue. Eventually, the rest of the family got involved, with most of them staunchly against her. They even told her to get out of the house before claiming they would sue her.
The mother-in-law’s tirade against her daughter-in-law did not stop once she had been kicked out of the house. Instead, she continued to badmouth her daughter-in-law on subsequent livestream. The daughter-in-law later did her own stream to explain her side of the story. She allegedly claimed her husband’s family had not understood the situation.
Shortly afterwards, her mother-in-law uploaded a photo of a car splashed with red paint. She allegedly claimed in the Facebook post that her safety was being threatened. However, she later deleted the post. This led to some netizens wondering if she had staged the photo herself.
The drama only ended on 9th March after the mother-in-law did a final broadcast to defend herself. While in tears, she claimed she loved her daughter-in-law very much and was only treating her like her own daughter, but had not expected to be labelled as a “bad mother-in-law”. She finally apologised to her daughter-in-law by kneeling during the broadcast. She later added she would be keeping mum on the matter in the future.
Most netizens sided with the daughter-in-law claiming the mother-in-law’s request was strange. Several pointed out that their own family members had never made such a request of them. However, a few simply marvelled at how they literally aired their dirty laundry.
Well, there’s no denying that some things should simply stay within the family. But, we do hope the lady and her in-laws will be able to sort out their issues privately, soon.
