OutDaughtered is one of the most loved family shows on TLC. The Busbys have become a household name after being part of the network for many, many years. Everyone used to be fascinated to see them take care of quints and how they functioned as a family of 8.
Over the years, the Busbys introduced more members of their family who would help them with parenting. Well, one of them was Grandma Mimi, aka Michelle Theriot, who is Danielle’s mother. But she seems to be missing from a lot of major family events lately. So, where is she these days?
OutDaughtered: Grandma Mimi Disappears From The Busby Family! Adam Avoids Her
It’s been seven years since Adam and Danielle Busby introduced their little angels to the camera. Now, everyone is fond of Ava Lane, Olivia Marie, Hazel Grace, Riley Paige, Parker Kate, and their eldest daughter, Blayke Louise. It’s been quite obvious how it’s not easy holding down the fort and trying to raise six girls all at once.
Hence, TLC would often feature Aunt Kiki and Uncle Dale stepping up to help the Busbys. In the same way, fans also got familiar with Grandma Mimi i.e., Danielle’s mother. Oddly enough, she seems to be missing. For the second time in a row, viewers didn’t spot Michelle Theriot at the family Thanksgiving celebration. Adam and Danielle had posted pictures of the same on their social media.
So, OutDaughtered viewers know something fishy is going on in the family. They have speculated how the Busbys may not be in touch with Grandma Mimi. But none of the family members has openly addressed this matter. For instance, fans commented on Adam’s new post and asked him several questions about the family and their show.
The OutDaughtered star responded to most of the questions from the fans. But Adam ended up avoiding the ones who mentioned Grandma Mimi. So, there is no sure way of telling what is going on between them. The ones who follow Michelle on Instagram have also mentioned how her last Instagram post was from 2021, and there has been no trace of her on the platform since then.
OutDaughtered: Did The Busbys Cut Ties With Grandma Mimi After Her DUI Arrest?
An incident from 2020 came in the limelight a few years ago that shocked everyone. Apparently, everyone’s favorite Grandma Mimi was in trouble with the cops. As per the reports, she was driving on her own in League City, Texas. Because of some strange behavior noticeable to cops, they pulled her over.
As per the officials, Mimi’s car had swerved quite a few times and was also straddling the white shoulder line. On further inquiry, they realized she was under the influence as she failed sobriety tests. Because of this, she also had a charge under her name for the same. But, Michelle Theriot avoided jail time as there is leniency for first time offenders.
So, Grandma Mimi was under community supervision for over a year and was a part of the diversion program. Since these incidents, OutDaughtered fans never got to see her with the Busbys. So, speculations began that the family must have cut ties with her since this case.
Others felt that TLC must have advised the family to avoid Grandma Mimi for a while so their reputation wasn’t at stake. She also didn’t appear in the latest season of the show. Stay tuned to TV Season & Spoilers for more exciting news updates about the OutDaughtered family.
