  1. S02.E02: My Mom Doesn’t Like You

    Lexus is looking for love in all the wrong places. Her Mother needs to stop rolling her eyes and judging Shady - and get Lexus into some therapy to love herself. She's young and has a long life ahead of her, some therapy now will go a long way to helping her be the best Mom she can be for her little girl. She breaks my heart because she is so willing to bend to Shady's demands. A part time J.O.B. and some therapy would work wonders for her. Even if the girls are already pregnant, their parents still have a right to be outraged that they might get pregnant again, under their roof, and then the parents are on the hook for more money, support, babysitting, etc. I can only imagine the incredible disappointment and sadness in seeing all their dreams go up in smoke in an instant. Very sad, yet they can help the girls get self-esteem through therapy and support them emotionally since they are still quite young themselves.
  2. Darcy and El Comandante trigger each other in such a bad way, it is painful to watch. They really don't LISTEN when the other talks. They have so much they want to spew, they can't take in what the other is saying, nor do they take a half second to absorb what was said and make a proper response. There is a Lot of Baggage in those comments and landmines in the answers. Darce is determined to keep her boitoi at the expense of her self-esteem. El Comandante wants to visit the US and Darce is in the way. Ricky is waiting for a gal who is way out of his league and he's hoping she is overwhelmed by this personality, like he was with hers, obviously. Jon seems to be a little "off" personality-wise. Can't wait to see what happens next week with the baby on board....
  3. S02.E01: Unsafe & Unplanned

    McKayla never got to bond with her mother when she was young, thanks to Shannon's irresponsibility. McK is desperate for her love and will kick everyone to the curb in order to spend time with Shannon and get her approval. Sad. The grandparents -- especially Grandma - is a Shannon Enabler so there is no good guidance from that front where Shannon is concerned. McK is still quite young and I give her a lot of slack while she tries to make Adult decisions with a world of petty, selfish people around her. The gal who wanted her BF to come watch her pack her bag...only wanted Some Attention From Him and he was having none of that. She used the bag as an excuse to bring them together, but he saw right through it, plus he had no interest in going over. She's got a long haul in front of her, she should play hard to get for a minute and he may get interested. The level of Controlling BF's is so sad. Little losers who can't control themselves and force control over young girls. The boy shushing the GF was too much. Hope she finds some spirit to stand up for herself.
  4. Again Josh -- Thanks for the heads up that Joe is no longer in the picture. Joe was tough to watch. Kudos on them having their own place -- it looked quite nice. I've seen that brawl a few times and it looks like to me that BrotherChantel was talking smack to Pedro. Pedro got up to beat his chest. BrotherChantel then got up and swung the light fixture at Pedro. That, to me, was the first aggressive move. BrotherChantel started with the talk then aggressively hit the light fixture -- not caring if it hit Pedro. Pedro THEN stormed over and challenged BrotherChantel. Not saying Pedro was right in any of this, but BrotherChantel needs to check himself. He is constantly challenging his brother in law and he needs to Just Quit It. Whatever FamilyChantel thinks of Pedro they are not hurting Pedro -- they are hurting Chantel. They need to Stay In Their Lane and let Chantel figure out if she likes AmericaPedro or not. FamiyChantel is just confusing the situation.
  5. Josh!! Thank you for showing us your teeth!! That was the funniest part of the evening! You know he reads this -- so I am going to say he needs to spend every single penny they get from this show to pay for the IVF. His wife is already in her later 30s and time is ticking. She really wants children and will never forgive him if he's not able to give her one. I hope they are successful in getting that worked out. Why does Pao keep saying "I don't want to choose between my Best Friend and my Husband"? She already PICKED -- When she married Russ. HE was her PICK. She needs to realize that and get over it. There is No Way she would EVER put up with Russ having a female "best friend" who treated her like Juan treats Russ. Someone needs to point that out to her. Russ had a good point on this show -- he wanted Everyone to see how Juan acts hoping Pao would also see it. It must be very frustrating for him to have to deal with that Joker and to have a wife he adores never stand up for him. The Mean Girl way Pao acted on the last Tell All with Lauren was horrid - Anfisa has a right to be upset. Annie talked smack about David's daughter then she stood behind her comments. Annie is no joke. Anfisa has her hands full with trying to figure out truth with Jorge. Good luck to her on all that. Still like Pedro and Chantel although they seriously need a some couples therapy en Espanol! Her Spanish is so weak and his English is not good, their inability to communicate because they don't understand anything other than "Baby" could be their downfall and that would be a shame because they really do seem to love each other. Oh yes, THANK YOU PRODUCERS for some more Andreiiiiii Eye Candy! He needs to drag Lizzy to Moldova and keep her there - let's see what Daddy has to say then.....
  6. Chris said that there was no kitchen, but there was a kitchen area with a full sized fridge and a microwave. She lamented no stove/oven, but they can get a couple of burners to heat up pans. It was quite nice, overall....especially for a couple with No Job and no motivation to get one. Chris said he could move there and pay rent OR he could work there and get the place rent-free. I don't recall any discussion of $10/hr. Nope, David Poor actually has to WORK there to get the place included. No one said anything about a salary on top of that...so yeah, don't look down your nose so quickly at a "$10/hr" job because this J.O.B. sounds like a barter for the apartment. Just saying......
  7. I would imagine he could pay Chris $500/mo and Chris would agree to that. Seems like Chris is only asking for $1,000 to put the fire under David Poor...and we see how that's working. All those meals out have to be paid by TLC. No way can they afford to eat out all the time. Hopefully Annie got all her groceries for the week with that $58.....at least she could have bought enough food to make leftovers..... I can't help but feel sorry for Annie. She has to have been in a very desperate situation and David Poor was her lifeline out of it. Her parents pressuring her, her Magical Thinking that "surely" David Poor could easily get a job in the US! (He CAN, but he Won't!) -- all of that makes her sympathetic despite what she's had to say to defend herself in this series. Whatever "job" she had in Thailand....whatever she did to survive -- none of that is a problem with David Poor either - so she shouldn't feel guilty about it.
  8. Thanks Mothra for the video link! I thought it was very informative. Makes me like both of them better than what was shown on the show. Confirmed some of my suspicions re: egging people on and cutting and pasting "answers." We knew that DavidPoor does not want to work, but the fact that Chris offered him many jobs, and David Poor is completely not interested in working -- well, Annie got sold a bill of goods didn't she? Very interesting that Nikki is a huge 90-day Fan -- Just Like Us!! Wish she'd come on and give us some Back Stage Gossip!!
  9. Well, she may have apologized to try to keep the peace, but Pedro certainly did not understand it, because their communication is so sketchy he had no clue what her intentions were. If that makes you feel better, it wasn't taken as an apology, so it's like it never happened. Yes! About Sister Poor's bottom teeth -- very distracting. Hope she gets some work on those instead of EVER lending David Poor any money. Both Annie and Anfisa are in it for the Long Game. They both know what's up and Annie made some comments about Chris being on the hook for her, so she's staying as long as she wants. Loved how she turned it on Daughter Poor re: her Line Of Work in Thailand. She got all loud and offended. HA! Just what Daughter Poor needed since she keeps coming at her every chance she gets. Yes, Daughter Poor, we get it - -you will ALWAYS hate Annie -- so quit hanging around with her. Quit challenging her and let her live her life. Daughter Poor needs to stop making David Poor's bad decisions and take care of her own family so in the future they will not dog her like she does David Poor. Annie's parents -- especially her Mom - appeared to be quite calculating in terms of "We will miss you giving us money. Go to the US and SEND US MONEY!" so there it that pressure. I'd guess Annie worked someplace where she met David Poor and it was so unsavory that David Poor looked like a good option. She's not having all this No Money stuff so she's going strong on the Get a Job thing. She knows the TLC money is what is supporting them...she also knows that there has to be come controversy to keep them on the show. I get the feeling they are both pretty lazy and happy to be living and chilling at the Fire House. Anfisa was simply horrid last season. This season she's done a 180. She can't stand George, but she's remaking her Brand so that she comes off better than last season. So be it. Don't believe a word she says about caring for George...do believe she wants a divorce and is trying to look sympathetic to the teevee audience. PaoPao has no interest whatsoever in having a child. Sadly, she's using her miscarriage to get sympathy, but since her laser focus before and after has been taking revealing photos, thwarting Ross, and giggling evilly with Juan, it comes as a shock that it happened and that she is upset. We can only take her word for it that she is, because her actions on screen are contrary. I think we are all waiting with baited breath to see Azan's female relatives see her American Style dress. ACK! The Horror! The Horror! They will never be able to unsee that! Azan's family appears to be nice, but they are also likely putting up with whatever Nicole does because of the $$$ she's sent Azan. Why didn't we see Azan giving Nicole The Business for shortchanging him his cash before she went to Morocco? What happened with that conversation? It sounded like he was very angry and she was trying to appease him and told him to not talk about it while she was on screen. Nicole is all soft voiced and clingy until she doesn't get her way then Baby Huey gets all loud and pushy. The transformation is riveting. Does anyone else think it is interesting that May doesn't talk much for her age?
  10. So last night in one episode went to a Reservation in NM (I've seen it before) and they had some creepy experiences (naturally). At the beginning, Zac says a tribal Shaman told the family to build a house on another spot on the land. So a Shaman had already been consulted. Zac and Crew figured out there is a magnetic field from a spot in the yard directly to the mobile home outside the house. In the mobile home the family had all seen a demon and had all experienced some paranormal. So they go there, Zac and crew rile up the entitles then leave. Seriously? At the credits, Zac says, we left them knowing that they had paranormal things, and that they need to get it cleansed. Really Zac? That in a nutshell is my problem with Zac going to a place where a family lives. THEY DO NOT HELP THEM! They only rile up the entities, get their info, scream Dude! a few times, then leave. This family needed Amy and Steve from the Dead Files over there. And it is very likely that Amy will tell them to leave since even Zac acknowledged that THE LAND was BAD. Okey then. If the Natives can't cleanse it....um, no one can. IMO. The second episode last night returned to the LV space where they had previously investigated with that couple -- the one where the murder-suicide happened. So Very Sad! So Billy is overcome and is crying and his machine records the woman saying "Billy is upset." YIKES! Even I could hear her voice. WHY OH WHY didn't they ask her More Questions? If she is still hanging around, she needs to GO INTO THE LIGHT!! Why didn't they help her move on? That was just crazy.
  11. "Who invites your PARENTS to a modeling shoot where you are nude with paint on you? WHO DOES THAT?" The person whose parents think that modeling in paint is ART! The person whose parents encouraged her to defy her husband and pose in lingerie because it is HER JOB. Because, obviously, we ALL do Things Our Spouses Do Not Approve Of When We Are Getting Paid, right? Right?
  12. Russ was pressured into giving up a lucrative engineering job by Pao because she didn't want him to leave her for 3 months. I recall he said (much to his detriment) "I can get another engineering job, I can't get another Pao." Well, he has her and she has no respect for his opinions. It is painful to watch. I think it is reasonable for him to have reservations about all those very seedy photo shots -- and there is no talk of the $$$ she is bringing in. Their relationship, at least at the beginning, was such that she did not "allow" him to make a living so what is good for the goose and all that.... Chantal calling him out in front of his sister was a Bad Scene. No way can his machismo allow him to let her yell at him in front of his sister -- he will be the laughingstock of DR in no time. Chantal might know that if she paid any kind of attention to his culture and the expectations of men in it. She can't be bothered to do that since she is constantly trying to appease her family -- when she's not lying to them about something. Family counseling for those two with a Latino Counselor is what is needed asap.
  13. FatherPao defending the nearlynude "photoshoot" was disgusting. Seriously? I loved that she was too embarrassed to walk around in front of him with the paint -- what? Isn't it all so artistic? Why the shyness? This is something Honorable, right? The ripped up daisy dukes were the icing on the cake of classlessness. Why the hair covering everything up? Art is art, right? They all knew that this is the opposite of Art, but they were bound and determined to gaslight Ross. He must like the TLC $$ because he keeps hanging around. Her looks with Juan are so disrespectful. She has zero interest in remaining with Ross unless he does exactly what she wants and doesn't bug her too much. She is exhausting. So is Ross for putting up with her and allowing himself to be drug along her path of havoc. Melanie and Devar - Devar is from Jamaica, fyi. Anfisa sure did have Her Story down pat. We can see how she's been treated poorly by Jorge, but she is Playing The Long Game....getting her therapy on film....getting all her stories out there so that she can divorce him and Stay in The US. Brava Anfisa...he deserves you. Nicole doesn't listen to anyone. I am pretty sure Azan never agreed to much of her Magical Thinking, but he's in it for the $$$, so whatevs.... Pedro was giving some major Controlling Vibes. Chantel is stuck because she doesn't stick up for herself with him or her family. She gets what she gets for being so bad at communicating.
  14. Ron trying to make it all about himself was typical. He's selfish and needy. Jenn defending him was rich -- no way would she defend her own man if he did that to her. So yeah. My best guess is that this was a ReMake Proposal so that it could get on camera and they could make it a Thing for the Cast to Be In On. Good for them. It was fun to watch them running around. On the other hand, no way would it be cool to have Nicole yelling obscenities when they are about to walk in so that she can hog the camera time. Such bad form....even for Them. Like Laurens and am surprised she hung in there with him when he was so promiscuous during the previous seasons -- considering they have been together since College. So yeah, she waited him out and it looks like it's going to work. Good for them.
  15. Deena's contrived speech pattern is also a schtick so that she has something "interesting" about her. Nope. Does not work. She's trying to be the "dumb meatball"....Snooki has that title all wrapped up. Deena just tries too hard and it is so cringeworthy -- I wish they'd kept Angelina and booted Deena. They could have also booted Ron along with her.
