    The Duggalos: Jinger and the Holy Goalie

    Religion is their brand and their product. Filling their posts full of religion is no different from any other "social influencer" promoting their hair care products, clothes, etc. They learned from JB and Mother of the Year how to exploit their children and religion to make a tidy profit Makes me sick on every level, but they are carrying on a family tradition.
  2. At McDonalds, Taco Bell, Whataburger, pretty much any place with salty, fatty foods and a drive thru. Oh wait, do you mean where does she normally plop down to eat her lunch? Obviously at her mysterious job that keeps her busy and tired night and day.

    Meri Brown and her Wet Bar of Tears

    I don't have a problem with routine pest control. I do the same in my own home. However, staying in a place with a ghost? Problem. Big problem. I'm open minded on the subject. Don't really believe or disbelieve, but I'm not interested in having any encounters. I'm also cowardly and have a vivid imagination so I'd probably have some sort of frightening experience whether it was real or imagined. 🤣

    Maddie Brown: Seeking a One-Woman Man

    You hope this because two children are a nice sized family, and a girl and a boy are a nice balance. It isn't exactly easy, but it is possible to take college courses and earn a degree with two young children, particularly if you have a husband who earns enough to support the family while you study. With each additional child, the odds of Maddie getting that degree go down, as do the odds of Caleb earning enough to support the family while she goes to school. I could be wrong, but I suspect the Brown clan gets some special consideration from LLN because of the publicity they bring to the company. As far as I've seen, the gushing social media posts from the Brown's is the best, most positive publicity that LLN gets these days, and that has to be worth something - like maybe a cruise?

    S10:12 Tell All: Part 1

    She may not qualify for My 600 lb Life quite yet, but her weight would definitely qualify her for bariatric surgery. All joking aside about her "career" as a fitness expert, she must be absolutely miserable at that weight. I'm not overweight, but I have a lot of pain from arthritis, and I can only imagine the stress she's putting on her joints. I doubt she was ever very lively, but no wonder she's too tired to cook and her house is filthy. Getting out of a chair must be a serious effort for her. Don't even get me started on Fat Tony and his lovely fat bride. FT is also heavy enough to qualify for the surgery, and his wife is getting there.
  6. If that happened, I'm glad I either missed it or wiped the memory of it from my brain.
  7. Christine should be the one who posts on the Strive account. She looks terrific and is so energetic that sometimes she's hyper. People would genuinely want to know the secret to her success. Janelle needs to be honest and share her secrets to living a fat, dumpy, apathetic and depressed existence.

    Small Talk: The Prayer Closet

    I've had this happen as well. Might have mentioned something about it to someone, but didn't do any kind of internet search for it. Someone I barely know came up in discussion one time, and later she showed up as one of the "friend" suggestions on FB. I do think our devices, to an extent, are listening to us. Scary.

    I find it difficult to believe that there's a woman in her twenties who is so hot for Kootie that she's anxious to join his harem. Or even a woman in her thirties. But, on the off chance that there actually is a young woman who is stupid, gullible, and desperate enough to join the Cold Sore Gang, I will say this. There is NO WAY, and I mean absolutely NO WAY that she will take Robyn's spot as the legal wife. If Robyn vacates her position as most favored, legal wife, it will be because she decides she's finished with Kootie for good, and it will be a legal battle to end all legal battles. He managed to get Meri to slink away with no apparent financial settlement, but Robyn will take him for every dime he's ever earned, and every dime he may earn in the future. He will have to fight for every minute of visitation he gets with their two children. They won't be pleasant visits because she will do everything in her power to turn the kids against their father. She won't hesitate to smear him endlessly on any public forum she can find, and she'll be the one who writes the salacious Brown tell-all book, exposing every single detail about the Brown relationships and finances. Robyn has shown her true colors in the way she has treated her ex-husband, and she won't spare Kootie the same or worse treatment if he doesn't tow the line for her. He'd better think at least twice before he makes any decision that makes her unhappy enough to leave the cult.

    S09.E07: A Bachelor No More

    It REALLY gets under my skin when the Duggar robot-children lavish praise and thanks on their parents. "Thanks for all you've done for us," shows up way too often in their social media posts. Besides conceiving and giving birth to them, Ma and Pa did very little for those kids. However, the kids have given Ma and Pa a lifestyle most of us can only dream about. The ONLY reason this family is on television and rolling in money and privilege is because they have all of those children. Ma and Pa should be thanking the children, because that's who has been bringing in the viewers, and therefore the money, since day one of the television show. I believe it's accurate that JB takes in all the TV money and doles it out as he sees fit. One of these days, one or more of the offspring are going to realize that Ma and Pa exploited them both as children and adults, and when that happens, it could get real ugly real fast. Particularly if the money is dwindling and everyone realizes that Ma and Pa not only exploited them, but neglected their educations so that they have no way to earn a living if they aren't TV stars.

    Why does Meri need to "come clean" and publicly confess everything, but Kootie doesn't? He rejected Meri, somehow convinced her to consent to a divorce, and married his one true love (at that moment) Robyn. I will always believe the whole adoption story was just that - a cover story dreamed up by the show's producers to explain the divorce and quick remarriage. I'm not a fan of Meri, but I think she should do a talking head on the show and tell everything about the catfish, right after Kootie tells the truth about his own culpability in the situation. He never takes responsibility for anything, not even when his actions hurt one of his wives and apparently played a part in creating a huge rift between her and her only child.

    She's really getting into the whole MLM life. Waiting for her to start advertising her Scentsy, Arbonne, Avon and Amway businesses! I'm sure that putting a few pictures of her products up on social media will create a tidal wave of sales!

    Season 10 Spoilers, Speculation and Social Media

    Has Robyn's house officially sold? Last I knew, it was off the market, but I don't recall seeing anyone post that there was a new owner of record. I've known people who pulled their house off the market because the listing got too "stale". Just wondering if that might be what's happening here.

    The Act

    I lived in the general area where Dee Dee and Gypsy lived. Even before the murders, I was vaguely aware of them because they were on the news every now and then. Dee Dee was a very good PR person. After the murders, many people shared memories of seeing the two of them out and about and found that they were very pleasant and approachable. However, apparently Dee Dee had a habit of helpfully telling strangers how they could make a donation to help Gypsy. In the series, when Dee Dee consulted the attorney about getting guardianship of Gypsy, I almost laughed. We had to go through that process with a genuinely disabled relative and not only was it expensive, but it involved extensive tests and examinations by more than one doctor. The disabled person was assigned an attorney by the court to ensure his legal rights were protected. (If he had been able, he could have hired the attorney of his choice.) This wasn't in Missouri, so it may be different there, but in this state there were safeguards at every step. In our case, the guardianship was granted, but afterward, the guardian had to file a report with the court every month, accounting for every penny that was received or spent. There were other restrictions and requirements as well. If Dee Dee had actually filed for guardianship, the fraud she was committing would likely have been discovered in the process of getting everything needed for court. If, somehow, some way, the case had slipped by all of the safeguards and Dee Dee got the guardianship, she would have discovered that she had just tied her own hands in her attempt to further imprison her daughter.

    True Tori

    A few days in jail for contempt of court might be good for Tori, but of course it will never happen.
