I don't think her kids need to be felt sorry for. Georgia seems to be a level headed young girl who loves her little sister and will always be there for her.
Alicia has been an idiot, in throwing good money after bad but at least she acknowledges the fact and at last seems to be helping herself, her daughters and women's co-ops in Morocco by setting up a business.
Georgia is like that in spite of her mother and has spent many years being the adult in the relationship - and will probably be the primary carer for her sister. She is FAR more deserving of our sympathy than her whoring, media whore of a "mother".
