what happened to kaila on intervention
A&E’s Emmy® Award-winning and critically-acclaimed docuseries Intervention profiles people whose uncontrollable addiction to drugs, alcohol or compulsive behavior has brought them to the brink of destruction and has devastated their family and friends. Intervention brings attention to the enormous social, economic and environmental cost of addiction.
Original interventionists Jeff Van Vonderen, Candy Finnigan, Ken Seeley, Donna Chavous and former series subject and Intervention success story Sylvia Parsons return to present individuals with a life-changing opportunity of intervention and rehab. Each addict must confront their darkest demons in order to begin their journey to recovery in the hopes that they can turn their lives around before it’s too late.
The theme song of Intervention is “Five Steps” from the album “Speaking of the Davenports” by the band The Davenports. For more information visit their web site.
Just watched the 7/11/13 episode w/Kaila who was suffering anorexia nervosa. Kaila signed herself out of the eating disorder clinic and moved in w/her grandmother. Does anyone know if she is still fighting this disease or what became of her ? It was clear that her body was failing her.
Addiction to most things is narcissistic to some degree. It is a decision someone makes to take a personal risk exclusively intended for the users benefit with little regard for the effect it will have on his or her loved ones. To suggest Kaila’s belief that she is fat is a clear indication of a lack of narcissism is completely false. Narcissism doesnt automatically imply high esteem. She is extremely self-involved and finds enjoyment in seeing people suffering via caring for her because she can no longer care for herself. Steve, you stated, “Her obvious desire for attention does not qualify her for any specific mental illness”.
It shouldn’t be argued that anyone going to such great lengths to get help/attention isn’t suffering from mental illness; most critically because anorexia alone is a psychological disorder and the episode was entirely based on this. Lastly, it wasn’t Kaila’s mother who treated her poorly “throughout her life”, it was Gina’s; the other young lady featured in the same episode. How one could confuse the two is beyond me, but Kaila’s disorder stemmed from being bullied and her suffering went unnoticed until it was beyond repair. Kaila found revenge in having power she compared to godliness; which is pretty much the most narcissistic statement imaginable.
So, what happened to Kaila since the show aired in 2013? Thankfully, it seems she is doing great. Not only does she look better, but it is also apparent she’s repaired her relationship with her parents: In a Facebook post celebrating Kaila’s birthday in May, her mom wrote, “Today is a day to celebrate our daughter Kaila. She is 23 today and that brings me so much joy. What a gift to watch you grow into the amazing person you are today.”
