WHITE BEAR LAKE, MN (CNN) -- A Minnesota woman called 'America's Nastiest Neighbor' is telling her side of the story. Lori Christensen, 50, says she has been banned from her home after years of complaints from her neighbors.

She's been dubbed the neighbor from hell, all stemming from complaints that Lori Christensen has been anything but neighborly.

Kim and Greg Hoffman say Christensen has been harassing them for years after an argument between their young daughters. it allegedly started with Christensen yelling obscenities, and it only got worse. Greg says, "That's the way we learned to live. And that's the way we learned to raise the kids, you know?"

They started filming Christensen's antics, showing her provocatively dancing in her driveway and drinking out of an oversized beer bottle, seen as a way to taunt Kim Hoffman, a recovering alcoholic. Kim says, "It doesn't allow you to really heal completely because it's putting it in your face every day."

The Hoffman's filed a restraining order, but that didn't stop Christensen from posting large signs on her garage door with one reading "i saw mommy kissing a breathalyzer".

Shortly after, Christensen was sent to the slammer for a month after ignoring the judge's orders. The reporter asks Christensen, "Mommy was kissing a breathalyzer. You know your neighbor is a recovering alcoholic. That wasn't targeted at her?" Christensen responds, "I just don't agree with people drinking and driving."

The reporter then says, "So the one that you put up saying 'get a life you stalk, freak. Guilty talk the loudest.' What was that all about? Who was that directed at?" Christensen responds, "Uh. You know, I was a bartender for years. They have people that follow me, drive by. Maybe it was, maybe I was a little guilty on that one. Greg's standing in his driveway videotaping me? That's creepy."

On Monday night, Christensen pleaded guilty to violating her restraining order once again, this time for filming the Hoffmans at their home. Christensen says, "Oh, I've never had a problem with them. I just chose to not hang out with them or have them over to my house anymore."

Christensen says she has lost her job and now plans to sell her house in this quiet Minnesota cul-de-sac because she's forbidden to return there. She says, "They had an obsession. They wanted to make my life miserable."

KARE reports Christensen worked out a plea deal to avoid prison time. It calls for 10 years probation and no contact with the Hoffman family or the neighborhood.

She is scheduled to be sentenced in September.
