CMTU 101, Recap

She's baaaack!

Christina Milian is turning it up and you're invited to ride along! On the hour-long series premiere of Christina Milian Turned Up, she gave us a never-before-seen look at her journey back into the music industry and all the drama that comes with it! The episode focused on Christina's search for herself through her new music, new fashion sense and her relationship with her family. 

The first family member that we met was Danielle Milian, the middle of the Milian sisters. Danielle is married with two young children and believes that recently she has become everyone's caretaker and is having a hard time finding time for herself. She admitted, "I can be a bitch sometimes." The best of us can, girl.

The ladies hold nothing back in this show. We quickly learned that Christina's dad left when she was about 15 and eventually went on to marry his mistress.

The two younger girls harbor some resentment toward their mother for leaving to go on the road and travel with Christina, and each of the Milian women have their own personal struggles. But, family is still always first.
