In a sneak peek for DDWTD this week,┬áKaren Derrico didn’t seem happy with her daughter. Meanwhile, Deon didn’t say much, but he also seemed to look uncharacteristically unhappy. Perhaps it’s because he and his wife also clashed over how long it took him to carry out improvements to the new house they were moving into.

During the discussion with her parents, the DDWTD star said:

I didn’t always want to go to school. When you say college can help you or whatever, I was like, ‘Yeah, that’s cool. But I don’t really know what I want to do.” So, I wish you kind of didn’t talk about it anymore and then let me do my own research.

Darian Derrico continued by saying that she appreciated her parents pushing her for her own good, but, she added, “I want to do this because I want to do this. I don’t want to do this because I feel…pressured or pushed.”

Naturally, Karen Derrico felt taken aback, because her daughter always seemed keen on furthering her education. She said in her confessional:

I’m pretty shocked right now because she’s always seemed excited about college. You know, she’s never acted like she was only doing it to make me happy.
