  1. I laughed when Corey said, "we've got a lot going on but we got this," as I was hoping Cheyenne didn't have a wardrobe malfunction with the handkerchief she was wearing instead of a top.
  2. I don't particularly like the character of Harris, but they did show her working hard at her Wallyworld (sorry I have no idea what they called the walmart clone she worked at) job and she had a good plan to attend a low cost college paid for by her job, despite the fact that her mother was pushing her to consider schools they absolutely couldn't afford. It appears she lost her Wallyworld job through no fault of her own, and she's really young. For a kid in her late teens/early 20s she's not doing so badly. For most of her childhood, Darlene was her only parent, since David mostly disappeared. Which means her role model is the kind of person who got herself thrown in jail for mouthing off to a cop. She could be doing a lot worse. Darlene and Becky are grown women in their 40s who seem to have no qualms about living with their dad and expecting him to support them. Darlene is unemployed since she chose to blow off a job at Wallyworld since it was beneath her, and Becky believes that it is reasonable to have a baby she can't afford and then pursue an unlikely dream of working at the restaurant. I'm glad she's working, but now is kind of not at all the time for pursuing a dream full time. You can pursue a dream part time if you can, but not full time. I am way more concerned about Darlene and Becky's choices. It also strikes me that Dan got thrown in jail for beating up Fisher after he hit Jackie, and Darlene got thrown in jail just for her arrogance.
  3. I was really disgusted that Darlene had the nerve to complain about how Ben supervised her children while she was in jail. She didn't get arrested for trying to integrate a Woolworth's lunch counter - she got arrested for mouthing off to a cop, undoubtably resulting in significant fines and court costs that she can't afford. While trying to conceive a child she can't afford and living in her dad's home that is about to go into foreclosure. And then she had the nerve to criticize a parenting decision Ben had to make while she was in jail. I was surprised he didn't say to her, "if you'd want to make all of the decisions, then you need to stay out of jail."
  4. You know how they are filming the late shows from home? I’d actually want to watch these idiots staying home now and taking care of their own children. I’m guessing that isn’t happening but it would certainly be a big improvement over seeing catelyns millionth trip for her to work on her mental health. I do hope that most of these people aren’t taking care of their kids now - amber, Jennelle and some others would be very dangerous if they had full responsibility for a small child.
  5. And I find it hard to imagine Gary having a lot of expenses. He seems like he’d be pretty happy with a life without expensive luxuries. I think he’s not seeing the downside of this show since he looks like a saint compared to most of the other people on this show but ambers lunacy being broadcast to the world is going to matter to his daughter.
  6. I had to google Cate's psychiatrist. She went to Duke and earned her MD from George Washington University. https://www.drlmassoumi.com/providers.html How much must MTV have paid her to describe a woman who can't spend 5 minutes with her kid without announcing, "I'm depressed and need to go to therapy in Malibu" as stable? Good god, how is she ever going to have any clients after this? If she can't see through Catelyn's endless whining and bs, how can she ever help anyone?
  7. The sister is even worse than expecting everyone to rescue her - after everything she did this episode she even helped to guilt trip Rollins into letting her dad stay with her! Apparently it wasn't enough that her sister bailed her out of jail, launched a police investigation into her doctor and took custody of her young son in addition to raising her own two children as a single parent. Nope, the sister also had to push Rollins into letting her drug addict father stay in her home with her young daughters since he insisted he needed to be clean for their new stepmother/long lost sister.
  8. They’ve been together for awhile, but it hasn’t been that long since Darlene cheated on him. Not just once, but had an entire relationship with David. This, combined with the fact that these two can’t even support themselves and the children they already have, makes this plot insane.
  9. this is completely true. But honestly, most of these couples have been through years of infertility treatments (which are often not covered by insurance and studies have shown is as stressful as cancer), and then have to pay a lot of money for fees to adoption agencies, fees for background checks and spent a ton of time creating websites or books to try to sell themselves to potential adoptive parents. So they're pretty traumatized before they met this scammer. And the agency employee mentioned that some people were so devastated by this experience that they gave up on adoption. It's pretty easy to understand someone who takes money for living/medical expenses from couples who want to adopt by lying and telling them they want to place the baby, but it's really hard and devastating to understand why anyone would do this and prey upon this incredibly vulnerable and hurt population just for attention. I went through IVF to have my last child, and got a lot of sympathy for people that I had to do that but after reading the stories of women who went through multiple rounds of IVF without success, and the devastation it wrecked on their lives and their families, I considered myself extremely lucky to have just had two miscarriages and one round of IVF before completing my family.

    S09.E30: Bear

    I've said a lot of bad things about Kail over the years. She's selfish, manipulative and puts her drama with her baby daddies ahead of her children's needs. But I do need to give her credit for tonight's episode. Kail's children have always seemed like really good kids, and I think tonight's episode shows why. She took the time to calmly explain to the children what would happen to Bear in an age appropriate way, and gave them the choice to come with her when he would be put down, and ended the conversation by hugging her son. Leah, Jeremy didn't show up for a free trip to Hawaii and cancelled your date without rescheduling. You didn't need to have an awkward conversation to break up. But if you insist on having one so we can all pretend you ended the relationship, instead of him not caring about you, please hang up after he says, "I agree with you" when you tell him you shouldn't be dating. I know you kept hoping he'd argue with you, but this only makes you look even more pathetic. It's hard to imagine this is the season finale since it doesn't seem like anything happened this season, except for Leah's brain dead sister getting pregnant from a one night stand.
  11. Harris is 17. I can actually believe for a kid that age the cops would discourage police intervention. The cop did seem to indicate it was Darlene’s choice, and I think if Darlene had insisted she’d have dragged harris out of odessas apartment and dropped her off at home, where she’d promptly run away again. A bigger question is how old is Odessa If she’s under 18 they can put her in foster care if she has no legal guardian I really hope ben doesn’t take Darlene back again. I’d have loved to see him doing all these things for her if she hadn’t cheated on him a few weeks ago. He deserves a lot better than this.
  12. Wait did I misunderstand the ending? I thought that after john died, the second in command called off the attack on the west and threw down his nazi badge. I thought he was trying to implement the plan he tried to do with John before he went to Berlin - to convince the American nazis to give up and fight for the United States. If that’s the case, the portal hoppers came into a newly free country, not a nazi state.
  13. Normally, I would agree with this 100%, but Jackie has also said that her mom was living with her because she was completely broke. If I took in an allegedly broke relative, and then found out they still owned significant property that they had hidden from me I'd be pretty angry. She's not entitled to the restaurant, but I can understand her being angry with her mom about money right now. And living with Bev doesn't seem to be easy, as Dan would also like to put her out too.
  14. I’d agree with the fact that Darlene doesn’t want Becky to be more successful than she is. This is complicated by the fact that reopening the lunchbox is not a good idea. It would be more of a conflict if Darlene were sabatoging a good idea by Becky to make her life better. But it is a realistic fight since Becky and Jackie won’t admit they were wrong unless they actually fail. Otherwise they’ll just blame Darlene for the fact that they couldn’t make it financially.
  15. We are starting to see hints of the real Chelsea here, with her anxiety induced freak out over going to a party filled with her fans who want her to sign ugly flannel crap. Aubrey was tiptoeing around her mom, asking for just a little snack. There was something in her tone that made me suspect she’s used to taking care of Chelsea when her anxiety is overwhelming quite often.
