But at this moment, her drama is a little more real. It’s a dilemma many of us can relate to.
Mariah’s older brother, Morgan, has publicly labelled his little sister ‘an evil witch’ and claimed that she is refusing to support her family financially.
In a direct appeal to Mariah he said, “Your sister is dying and she is struggling and where are you? You think you are so fabulous, but you are a witch.
“Alison has desperately reached out to Mariah over and over again. We never hear back.”
Their sister Alison, a 54-year-old former prostitute from the New York City area, is HIV positive and awaiting brain and spine surgery.
Now, we don’t know the circumstances circumstances surrounding the Carey family feud, nor do we know the history behind Mariah’s relationship with her sister. Like every other story, I’m sure there’s more to this one than meets the eye.
But still, it’s a set of circumstances that makes every one of us stop in our tracks and think, what would I do? Where do you draw the line when family is involved?
I can say with absolute certainty that if either of my sisters needed money for medical assistance, a shoulder to cry on or help with artfully getting rid of a dead body I would move mountains to make it happen. Hell, I’d down tools and fly across the country to help them if they needed me for a lot less. In my world, that’s just what sisters do.

Of course, Mariah and Alison probably don’t have that relationship and so the decision of whether or not to help out is probably a lot less simplistic.
