Meanwhile, Nanny Faye has continued bravely battling bladder cancer. She recently opened up about her ongoing cancer treatments and how hard it's been to cope with her health struggles as her son and daughter-in-law rot in prison.

"There wasn't one treatment [for my bladder cancer] where my precious daughter-in-law wasn't with me — not one time," she shared. "Through it all, she's been with me."
