    Joy and Austin: This One Time At Family Camp

    That's the one class that sounded interesting, but in the context it's probably something along the lines of telling the women it's their job to acquiesce.

    All Episodes Talk: Crime And Punishment

    On Demand, the "What They Saw" episode is 59:48 long. Rearranging the interviews somewhat: Around 38:30: Male detective, day of murder (audio) Was Momma screaming, or Daddy screaming or hollering? Nobody was screaming or nothing? At around 37:40, interview five days earlier than the first interview that aired: Did you hear anything when Daddy was inside? I didn't hear nothing The first interview aired, which is the last shown in the actual timeline, starts around 26:00. At 27:30 the forensic interview is really ignoring laughing and pushing screaming. They should know better, as a good defense attorney would rip the interview to pieces: What'd you hear? Uh laughing, some almost screaming You heard screaming? Uh huh Yeah? Tell me, did you hear, were they just saying, like, screaming noises or something else? Like like laughing screaming The say yes part is yet another interviewer: 39:09 (audio) You remember that? Wispered- say yes. I mean do you remember that? It does seem like the wispered say yes was likely a prompt to say the answer out loud, but they should know better and just ask them to verbalize their answer because a defense attorney could use "say yes" as evidence of coaching. At least three intense interviewers, over four occasions and to me it seems like the story evolves. A kindergartner goes from doesn't remember to an elaborate story about getting out of the car twice, seeing Daddy through the mail slot twice, one time where Dad sees the daughter and tells her to get back in the car, and another time where she sees him holding a white bottle. Those poor children.

    All Episodes Talk: Crime And Punishment

    It was on video, and the "just say yes" was very under her breath and said very quickly between two questions. There was also a man who was pushing the screaming question. I can't remember exactly but something like was there screaming? And the kids said laughing and he said laughing or screaming? Overall very coached. I thought by the end that he did it, but I would have thrown out the kids' testimony and without that, not enough to convict. I wouldn't be totally shocked if someone else did it, but no one on his side mentioned looking for the real killer either. The real shame was him trying to get custody. Even if he's innocent, those kids have been poisoned to think they heard him kill their Mother and it is not in their best interest to uproot their lives to live with him. And he didn't care that it wasn't in their best interest either.

    S07.E27: I Choose You

    To paraphrase Arrested Development, one month starting the next month but we'll use 31 days even though it's a 30 day month
  5. I was curious about that too, as it looks like a pic from July 4th. She threw in a line about getting donated miles for a Christmas visit, so maybe it was a last minute subtle donation hint/reminder that Nurie is still available.

    S07.E24: Back to Square One

    The poor kid's name is even worse - Atlee Bay, named after a body of water in Alaska. It's like naming your child Lake, which could be pretty, but then adding Michigan as a middle name. Actually I could see Cate and Tyler using my idea.

    S7.E00: Where Are They Now? Mackenzie McKee

    Angie has terminal cancer, and a foundation who's motto is "Always be kind". That is not the message I would choose to leave knowing it could be the last thing i told her. Cute Halloween pics of Mac's kids: https://mobile.twitter.com/douthitkenzie/status/1057654823913512962?s=21

    A simple thank you goes a long way. I'm betting Kristina is still waiting on that.

    S7.E00: Where Are They Now? Mackenzie McKee

    Loving post from Mac's Mom on her birthday: Love how she takes MEDICAL ailments and calls her a hot mess. Maybe I'm reading into it from the special, but I would be so beaten down if this was how my mother spoke to me publicly.
  11. Agreed! I just finished reading Us Against You and there is a plot point where a character says something like - they can't be grateful I give them something until I take it away first. She absolutely uses food to manipulate, show affection, and likely to pit them against each other so she remains their hero.
  12. Sounds like a high school prom; maybe they combine both events into one

    Meri Brown and her Wet Bar of Tears

    I have my doubts that Meri has made a dime off of Lularoe. It has a very high markup for the consultants, but for the company, they sell the "wholesale" price to the rep what is truly retail price. Like a sweater Meri would buy for $38 and sell to her customers for $65, but the quality is so poor it's really just a $38 sweater. The company doesn't care because Meri is their end consumer. If Meri never sells their ugly designs, who cares, as long as Meri orders more. The pyramiding of people below her tips the point it is a pyramid scheme. If she was truly making money from the clothes, the others could just order under her account and make money selling for themselves using Meri's discount. But the company rewards the pyramid, so Meri signs up those under her. I'd bet that she pumps every dime she makes into ordering more, and supporting those under her to order more because if they make their sales goals (which really just means they buy more from Lulalaroe corporate), then Meri's bonus is higher. Which gets pumped into buying more clothes. It's a vicious cycle and it seems like even though Meri is a top "seller", she rarely seems to be actually selling anything. Even the sellers that hold live events three times a week selling hundreds of pieces often have hundreds of thousands in inventory at home because they are under constant pressure to continue ordering in order to be eligible for their bonuses.

    S7.E00: Where Are They Now? Mackenzie McKee

    I actually got sucked into the story. It was very pro Mac so obviously biased, but it did give an insight into part of the reason she is who she is and made me sympathize with Mac, even ignoring the cancer. I did not expect to feel anything for her other than sympathy for losing her Mom. I would enjoy seeing a continuation on her life, but only if it picks up like a year after her Mom passes. It's just too voyeuristic and raw right now. She would be a great replacement for whomever drops out next.

    Kathryn Dennis: On Her Own!

    Ooooh, what is it? I'm super nosy. The article quotes CereVe which I use and buy regularly from Walgreens in a pump bottle. Not dirt cheap, but not at all pricey.
