When she was home she had her daughter, Joyce, who visits her mother all the time, call all her brothers and sisters including their spouses. When they came there, they all started to argue and fight. But luckily Madea was there because Bam called her to come up here and straighten their problems out. The arguments ended with family secrets found out and people leaving.
