    S09.E12: Do the Dangle

    Gracie and Ali seemed so comfortable, relaxed, grown up, and beautiful at lunch with their Dad and Jeff. It was really lovely! Chelsea cracked me up with her good humor, and Aubree's deadpan "This is our life now"! 😆

    S16.E14: The Tao of Macau

    I have to admit, I had an a-ha moment (and a great laugh) hearing Sara and her mom sing the first two lines of 'Wherever you go, there's always someone Jewish' on TV. Growing up Jewish in Paducah may well have contributed to that chip on her shoulder, and I see her sarcasm in a different light. None of the elimination meals besides Sara's appealed to me, I have some sensory issues and am averse to most seafood, so... meh. But I knew that getting dinged for not meeting the challenge briefing was going to hurt Michelle. I liked her, I found her sympathetic, and I think she had a great journey on the show. I think Kelsey has been embracing the challenge of cooking in Macau the most thoughtfully of the chefs who remain, and I wouldn't mind if she won. I'd be okay with any of the 3 winning, though.

    S07.E08: Penneys from Heaven

    I'm so meh about this season. On the runway, AR and Irina's looks both seemed to best meet the challenge for me. I think Sean did well with what he had to work with. The heavily produced, awful THs are almost unwatchable. Especially Michelle and Bidell's. I'm not really rooting for anyone, just for the damn season to be over.

    I'm so glad it's Michelle! Now my ideal final 4 is Michelle, Eric, Kelsey, and Justin. I'd be happiest with Michelle or Eric winning.

    I need the angry reaction button. 😡 Make an insta-ad for special needs books, but don't properly take care of your own kids' significant needs. Because that would take work.

    S07.E06: Pedal to the Metal

    Having a really difficult time caring this season, between the time delay and the relatively few designers I feel drawn to. I didn't mind the judging this episode, it's more intresting when they disagree. I did like Irina, Sean, and Cynthia's dresses, and am frankly relieved that Anya went home.

    No, it's being handled the same way. Brandon competed against someone last week.

    Brandon has really grown on me, and his demeanor is impressing me. I wouldn't mind seeing him be the one to come back.

    Jenelle: Birther Of 3, Mother To None

    I just... it's not my usual way, but as soon as I saw the pictures on twitter, I thought, "Well, that's it. That's where they're going to find her body." Creepy. They're so creepy.

    I'm so upset that Jace is with them :(

    I think that Cole still isn't totally comfortable on camera, and was already feeling dysregulated because of the nature of their trip to the visitation center. He showed more anger and emotion than he usually lets go of when the camera's there. If his nerves showed when he was comforting Chelsea, I think it's understandable.

    S08.E29: Trouble in Paradise 2018.07.16

    Step/half relationships can be confusing to have and to explain, especially in the moment. I felt like they moved on just fine, but it was an interesting dissonant moment to watch on Paislee's part. I grew up with 3 siblings that were born within 13 months of each other, as we are a blended family. It took a long while for me to get the story smooth in order to answer questions. My half siblings had to do the same when answering questions about our dad (their non-bio dad). Aubree handled her moment well, and teaching bowling to her sister was super cute.

    Part of the reason Barb hasn't tried to forge a connection with Ensley is that she is, after all, UBT's child. That relationship is already fraught, her entering into a relationship with the baby daughter would trip all of his wires. She may also feel that Ensley is a bit protected from the worst of it, as a girl, and will only suffer from the general neglect and abuse present in the environment. (Not saying I agree). Also, she does have her hands full. It occurs to me that Chelsea and Aubree have been the only ones there for each other during the whole entire experience of Chelsea's motherhood. In a way. Randy, Chelsey, Landon and all the rest are amazing support, and now Cole is in the full time Dad mode... but Chelsea and Aubree have created this routine together from the beginning. Wanting to share the latest experiences with her must feel natural in a way. Aubree is very caring with Watson, and is very cared for by Cole... but some of the single mom roots of their relationship are sticky. I think it's nice, and I hope they continue to be close.

    Except Chelsea (and Cole)

    I was at the optometrist's today, and as the optician and receptionist were helping me pick out new frames, we started talking about how frames go in and out of style. I told them I watched a show with a young girl wearing aviator frames, and they both laughed, incredulous. It's an interesting choice, and not one I would have predicted.

    S08.E19: Not to Stir the Pot, But...

    We watched Randy speechify a much younger Chelsea over and over to instill calm, to wait for the right one, to learn from her mistakes... and maybe she did. I think their dweeby sides work really well together, and like SPLAIN said, they're dealing with a lot with Adam. If they want to be big dweebs and lovey dovey together, I get that. Re this episode...I watched the show (I usually watch just online clips of the cast I'm interested in)... the first time I'd watched Kailyn in ages. I couldn't make it through. I've always loved Isaac...but I just can't make it through his mom's segments. I wanted to see some twinses in this show. I never watch Briana's segments. Ever. and I could not care any less about this drama. Poor Kai.
