Truth: Sherri Griffin and her daughter, Katie, have recently moved to Newburyport, Massachusetts. Rebecca Coleman, former leader of the Newburyport Mom Squad, has made a surprising effort to include these newcomers in typically closed-group activities. Rebecca's teenage daughter Alexa has even been spotted babysitting Katie. Truth: Alexa has time on her hands because of a recent falling-out with her longtime best friends for reasons no one knows. Katie Griffin can't be left alone because she has terrifying nightmares. Rebecca Coleman has been spending a lot of time with Sherri, it's true, but she's also been spending time with someone else she doesn't want the Mom Squad to know about. Lie: Rebecca Coleman doesn't have a new man in her life, and definitely not someone connected to the Mom Squad. Alexa is not seeing anyone new herself and is planning to attend college in the fall. Sherri Griffin's real name is Sherri Griffin, and a bad divorce is all she's running from.
