Jim Jones is not one to shy away from his feelings.
In an emotional clip from WeTv’s Marriage Boot Camp, Jim and Mama Jones are forced to relive the harsh realities of their past. Through a special exercise, a young Jim Jones reenacts Jim’s childhood based on what older Jim told producers in his casting tape.
Jim is brought to tears remembering his vow to give his son Pudy the best possible life since his own upbringing wasn’t pleasant. He says, “I start thinking about how much I love my son. I work so hard for him to live way different than I have.” Mama Jones is visibly offended when young Jimmy says, “If I really want to see her, I gotta go looking for her in the street, or in a crack house.” To Mama Jones’ recollection, that never was the case and although Jim felt the reenactment was “off a little,” his casting tape tells a different story.
Jim has certainly kept to his word because Pudy is his best friend.
