With just an 18-year age difference, Karla and her daughter, Rykia, have always been besties. The two Season 3 additions wax one another, and they’ve seen each other’s most intimate moments.
“My mother is the most important person in the world to me,” Rykia says in the Season 3 premiere. “I can lean on her. I can depend on her for anything, and I appreciate that. Like, I really, really do.”
Like Angelica and Sunhe did in the past, Karla and Rykia also have a tendency to share a bed.
“I’ve had people say that we’re too close, point blank,” Karla admits. “And I was like, ‘What?'”
Meanwhile, Rykia doesn’t understand why people would think that she has a “weird” bond with her mom.
She notes that she really connected with her mom when she had a son in 2010. The two are raising Rykia’s son, Idris, together.
