We're told the plane almost had to make an emergency landing due to the aircraft not having the proper medical equipment. The doctor who helped the twins has been in contact in the hours after the incident. We're told he plans on writing the airline to complain about their lack of basic medical tools.

Karissa and Kristina told us they moved into the mansion in 2008 but were naive about the situation. “We came from a poor Italian family, so we did what we had to do. Our grandmother adopted us when our biological mother abandoned us and took off. School wasn’t an option.”

“Hef made a lot of promises. We didn’t know any better,” they explained.
