The minute the Kmetkos enter the high class world of expensive gymnastic training, they are immediately distinguished, in a less classy way, from the rest of the Rock community, for being middle-class, if not low-class, people. The mother of this small three person family is the irresponsible Chloe, who gave birth to Emily as a teenage; she runs a nail salon and is a bartender at a stripper club. Her family has big financial issues and often struggle to pay what is due. The only man in the family is Brian, Emily's brother (from another one of Chloe's boyfriends) who is always in his wheelchair and gets seizures occasionaly. Overall, through all the problems in this messed-up family, they love each other dearly.
