‘Unexpected’: Lilliana Cantu kicks Myrka out for being pregnant, but the mom has a questionable past of her own
The trailer shows how the families and the father of the pregnant teens handled the unexpected pregnancy and the impact on their lives
The fourth season of TLC’s ‘Unexpected’ is all set to release on Sunday, December 20, with an eye-opening look at teenage pregnancy and parenthood. The official Twitter handle of the network posted a preview of the upcoming premiere episode with the caption, “If this pulls at your heart strings, wait until you see the season premiere... TOMORROW at 10/9c! #Unexpected”
The official trailer shows how the families and the father of the pregnant teens handled the unexpected pregnancy and the impact on their lives. We saw Myrka got into a brawl with her mom Lilliana and got “kicked out” of her home, following which her boyfriend Ethan’s family took her in.
The preview of the show focused on Lilliana’s decision to throw her pregnant daughter out of the house and be unapologetic about it. The video started with Ethan’s mom explaining that being upset about the pregnancy was understandable but what Lilliana was trying to teach Myrka by kicking her out of the house at a time when she needed her the most was not clear to her.
In Lilliana’s confession, she said when she found out that terminating Myrka’s pregnancy was “out of question”, she decided she would have nothing to do with raising the baby. She further said, “People can judge me, people can say that I am ugly, I really don’t care. You live your life, I’ll live mine."
In 2014, Lilliana Cantu, former justice of the peace court clerk, was arrested in a “cash for court favors” scandal. Cantu who is from Brownsville, Texas, faced three counts and was alleged to have made false entries in the cases of defendants who were supposed to perform community service and did not. After pleading guilty to the TWGR charges, she received deferred adjudication and completed her probation and requirements, after which they were dismissed.
Even after having a questionable past of her own Lilliana doesn’t seem to cut any slack for her daughter who was untimely pregnant. Not only was she comfortable with kicking her out she also voiced her opinion on having nothing to do with the baby or support her daughter in any way. Being pointlessly evil towards your own child might make her come off as a very evil person to the viewers of the show.
Catch ‘Unexpected’ Season 4 on Sunday, December 20, at 10 pm ET/PT.
