    Kailyn: Kail Smash!

    I scrolled through the comments. The most recent ones are fairly snarky (one says it's too bad she's not "feelin'" a treadmill) or caution her against posting sexy pictures of herself online where her kids could find them in a few years, and some others are skeptical these pictures accurately show how she looks in real life. Yet, if you keep scrolling, there are nothing but "happy birthday" and "you're stunning" comments. Did all the meanies not log to comment until this morning, or is she deleting any comments she doesn't like and hasn't had a chance to remove the more recent ones?

    Ah, the vague social media post. I thought Jeremy might be above that, but I guess he's just as desperate for attention and validation as any of the women on this show are.

    It's certainly possible. I mean, I didn't believe her when she said in her 16 and Pregnant episode that she broke up with Robbie because he was too jealous and controlling. Granted, Robbie was only onscreen for about 12 seconds, but he didn't seem to exude enough mental fortitude to be jealous about anything, other than maybe jealous of who got the last grab bag of Cheetos. Come to think of it, at different times, Leah accused both Corey and Jeremy of being controlling and too jealous as well. Maybe in Leah's world, "controlling and jealous" means, "takes exception to being cheated on".

    I'm actually a little impressed that Leah recognized that controlling or jealous behavior is a red flag and this person should be avoided, rather than mistaking control and jealously issues for love and devotion. (He's so jealous and wants to know where I am at all times because he just loves me SO much!). I wonder if he started to push her to get pregnant or something.

    I stand corrected on Leah's instagram. OK, I don't like Leah much. But after seeing the Halloween pic where her 3 girls are dressed as the Sanderson Sisters from Hocus Pocus- and she accurately transcribes Bette Midler's spell turning Thackery into a cat- I dislike her a little less.

    Wow looks like the deactivated her instagram...interesting. I looked for it and only came across a fan page. I did learn though that the ridiculous cheer pic of Gracie was indeed a hairpiece and not her actual hair. I have no idea why that particular look would be mandated. Also came across this little gem about Jason: Fans of the series learned that Leah and Jason met through a mutual friend. "He’s 39, so we’re a little over 10 years apart. If I date someone my age it’s like, they don’t get my life," Leah told a friend during the show. "They don’t understand three kids; they don’t want any part of that. He has a little boy. He’s been married twice. It’s so crazy how similar we are." Leah, you're 26. I would bet good money that it would be hard to find a man in the holler who hasn't sired a child by the age of 26.

    Kailyn: Kail Smash!

    Because it would seem his first love is fame, not any person. The woman he picks is merely who provides the best (relative, of course) vehicle. Any woman who is like, no Javi, I won't intentionally try and get pregnant with a guy I've been dating for 2 weeks who is forever tied to someone like Kail, and honestly, I don't really want to be filmed so no cameras when I'm around, is likely nixed.

    So...why is everyone acting like Nikki is ridiculous for wanting to adequately prepare for a big match in her career? Also, she's a "perfectionist" because she asked the axe throwing guy for another demonstration when he was standing right there anyways? What is so wrong about any of that? She's taking her job seriously and willing to work hard. Why would someone discourage that? I admit I laughed when Bryan made fun of Brie a few times this episode, but I can't help but get this "let's all laugh at my super dumb wife" vibe he gives out, vs good-natured ribbing. I honestly don't think he respects her at all. I mean, I don't either, but I didn't marry her. Also, I wish Brie would clarify how exactly Nikki made her move to San Diego. Bryan clearly wears the pants in that family, and I just can't see him agreeing to sell the house he loved so he could move to San Diego just because his wife's sister suggested it. I am sure there is more to that story, but it doesn't fit into Brie's martyr persona she's always trying to sell.

    I can't believe this show got a second season. I only made it through the first half of the series premiere and shut it off. As soon as I heard that Kristin would be focusing on her store, and that her personal life wouldn't be that prominently featured, I figured it would be super boring. I watched long enough for a Jay sighting and then gave up. And I don't even like Jay Cutler but I was so curious to see the two of them interact together. I've seen a few interviews with Kristin over the years and I can't decide what to think about her. Sometimes she actually comes off as really likeable and self deprecating, and then sometimes she just seems obnoxious. When Laguna Beach was airing back in 2004, a few posters from TWOP claimed to be classmates of hers (I say claim because I have no way to verify it as the truth, but I can't really see why anyone would lie about it so I am thinking it was legit) who said she was actually a really nice person, and, absolutely shocking for a 16-17 year old girl, totally comfortable with herself and honestly did not care if people liked her or not. I was so jealous because at that time I was 21 and could not say that about myself. I watched her first season of Laguna Beach and thought she did seem self confident without being arrogant. Then I think her mid 2000s rise to some level of fame did change her to where she did seem arrogant. Then I stopped being impressed with her. Now though, watching her, she just seems sad. I think Jay seems controlling and bossy, and Kristin seems like she's desperately trying to fit several different molds (fashion mogul, a Gwyneth Paltrow-esque lifestyle persona, a stay at home domestic goddess- which I think is for Jay's benefit only) and none of these are who she is. Plus, I think she still wants to keep the door open for any acting/modeling/TV hosting job that could potentially come along. I don't think she seems secure at all anymore, which used to be her most impressive quality (to me, anyways).

    My take on that is that Nikki has historically bested Brie in a lot of areas- I'd be willing to bet she was the better soccer player in high school, got better grades, probably had more friends (all speculation, but given Brie's lack of personality, coordination, interest in training, or any kind of work ethic, I think it's founded), and that because of that, Nikki, although insanely competitive in general, will, out of pity, try and prop Brie up. I thought it was telling when Brie was sulking over Nikki's main event match, and Nikki jokes that that is what Brie gets for being the skinny twin all their lives. I mean, Nikki is willing to try and exploit something she has likely always been sensitive over in order to make Brie feel better about the situation. Being the skinny one is probably really the only thing Brie had over Nikki in their younger years (although, this may sting less for Nikki now that Brie is no longer the much thinner of the two- between Nikki's weight loss and Brie's post pregnancy changes in her body). Anyways, because she's a decent person and a good sister, I see Nikki willing to eat shit sometimes in order to make Brie feel better about herself...but when Brie gets a little big for her britches or is an ungrateful bitch (and usually, it's at least one of the two), Nikki's hackles go back up. It kind of reminds me of when a parent or older sibling plays a game with their kid or younger sibling, and the younger one is obviously outmatched, so the older one will play at half power to give the younger one a fighting chance. Then the younger one wins and gloats about it and acts like a jerk so then the next game, the older one plays at full power to shut them up. That's sort of how I see Brie and Nikki's general dynamic.

    Husband is going to stop watching with me because I used the entire 45 min last night to heckle Brie. But she just makes it SO easy! Honestly, I can't figure out if Brie has gotten more annoying this season, or if she pissed off someone in production who is more apt to show scenes where she is annoying. Brie: "I was so nervous, but then people kept cheering us on..." Tatum (snorts at TV): "Us, Brie? You mean Ronda??" Brie: "This is the first time I've ever felt like I don't belong in WWE."... Tatum (snorts at TV again): "Brie, I don't even watch wrestling and even I'm aware of how badly you've sucked throughout the majority of your tenure." Brie: "I was so glad we got to do something that really aligns (paraphrasing, obviously, Brie wouldn't use this word) with our core values."...Tatum (snorts and husband moves away on the couch) "Our core values, Brie? Everyone can tell you don't give two shits about the environment once Bryan's back is turned." Other snippets...Bryan and Nikki bending over to pick up trash while Brie flounces along the beach, not bothering to stop anywhere...Brie's constant bitch face when Nikki's match is mentioned...Brie's constant bitch face when Bryan is complaining about all the plastic packaging in the store, which reminded me of a petulant teenager who's just been told she can't go to the mall with her friends until her room is clean... Ugh, I now enjoy watching Total Bellas when I previously found it even more grating than Total Divas just so I can hate watch Brie. Husband probably wishes I'd go back to not caring.

    Yes maturity has alluded ALL of these girls, to some degree. Especially considering these girls are approaching late 20s at this point.

    I'm sure he's not. He strikes me as the type who only wants to "Dad" when it's convenient for him. That said, even if he is emotionally a deadbeat dad, I don't find it appropriate for Leah to vent about it while she's filming. And certainly Jason should take several seats. Leah and Kailyn both treat their kids like extensions of themselves- never stopping to consider how the kids might feel about something before acting. Like it's just assumed the kids will want whatever and feel however their respective mothers will.

    And this is why, whenever someone says Leah has come a long way, I have to disagree. She is just as classless as ever. Whether it's true or not, your child's father doesn't need to be called out on national TV, Leah. Addie may not appreciate having her private business splashed out for everyone.
