  1. I wondered if they gave up that idea once they decided to be on the show and realized that probably wouldn’t go over well with viewers.
  2. Here’s the interview with Dimitri’s previous “wife,” Ariadne. Basic bullet points: -she claims Dimitri choked her sexually and also choked her in a rage -claims Dimitri has physically abused Ashley -claims Dimitri and Ashley constantly tried to get her to have threesomes -claims Dimitri is a felon and keeps guns in the home illegally -claims Ashley pressured her to be naked around the house and was cruel to her children Idk, I have a hard time believing all these women are 100% lying and not a single instance of abuse has occurred.
  3. Yeah, I honestly don’t know if he’s capable of shame.
  4. “Wow, that sounds really bad for him! Like, really REALLY bad. For him. Anyway...” 😂
  5. Yes, what a total bait and switch. They basically had them as background noise for a couple episodes before they were just main characters again. JB is never going to accept not being the protagonist of any story.
  6. I could absolutely see this being the case. Jill seemed horrified that she had to talk about the abuse on camera when the news first broke, so I would imagine it’s very possible that she asked Derick not to make any statements about that specifically on her behalf. JB/the show might be his only “outlet” to publicly condemn. I get the strong sense that they’ve aligned on their messaging and what they want to complain or not complain about.
  7. Yep. I’ve noticed that Jill tends to try to be a little more reticent and diplomatic. Derick has a more assertive and aggressive personality. My husband and I are the same and he’s definitely been our “spokesperson” at times in family issues like this, with my full permission/blessing and even my request. While Derick *might* be doing this without Jill’s OK, I think it’s just as likely that he fucking hates JB for watching idly as his wife was abused, then screwing her over in terms of payments for the show, which was the very minimum of what he owed her, and savors every chance he gets to def
  8. My god, he does have the most shark-eyes stare! No compassion in those things at all.
  9. Gotta line up the MLMs in anticipation! 😂 God knows there are precisely zero other available jobs.
  10. Exactly. I think what he means is that people will continue to criticize him online for his outrageous comments (which makes him... feel like a victim for some reason?). I don’t think he’s concerned about going back and easing the hurt to a wife or child. I doubt he’s ever apologized to them.
  11. Now, now. Let’s be fair. Robyn also has to make time in her daily schedule for brow-furrowing. She has to furrow her brow and look concerned for at least two full hours a day. Probably 12-2 — you know, to start the day right.
  12. I was also randomly wondering - does anybody know how Meri’s (or Christine’s) LuLaRoe business could be doing post-lawsuit? Did it affect individual sellers, does anybody know? Or was it mostly just the overarching company that took a big hit? I wonder what would happen if it completely went under.
  13. Yeah, I absolutely agree with this. It’s hard to focus on your marital issues if you have 6 kids — and she basically had 13 when they were young — even if you’re monogamous. Now she has a few older kids at home and is going, “wait, what have i done and what did I settle for?”
  14. Yeah, I see a lot of Meri’s self-centeredness in Mariah. They both have a hard time seeing the pain of others and seeing beyond their own feelings. I also do agree with a previous poster that Mariah was probably cast in the role of Meri’s substitute partner for a long time because of Kody’s neglect — which is obviously Kody’s fault just as/more than Meri’s, but still. I have often wondered if the whole extended argument between them was partly Mariah distancing herself to get out of that enmeshed role. She could have been a lot nicer about it, yes. While Meri was also humiliated, Mariah h
  15. Ok at least I’m not totally crazy, I thought I was the only one who felt like Mariah had a point with this. Don’t get me wrong, Mariah can be very annoying and melodramatic, but I couldn’t believe that NO ONE seemed to see that a *teen girl* would rightfully be embarrassed and mad as hell at her mom for sending banana BJ pictures to an obvious catfish when she was famous for being a super-religious polygamist on a national reality TV show. People said it wasn’t Mariah’s business, but Meri kinda made it her business when she stuck her on a TV show about polygamy and also made her meet the catfi
  16. Very true. And I know that we outside the relationship are like “but Kody’s been cheating for years,” which he has imo, but not according to the rules of the relationship Meri set up with him willingly and preaches on a TV show. Like, I’m not gonna feel bad that she is in a polygamous relationship if I’m her kid - they went on national TV to talk about polygamy and raised all their kids in a hardcore polygamy-promoting cult. Mariah even went to an AUB school. Meri also seemed to be the one who kept bringing it up by bringing the other “catfish victims” around to meet Mariah and the siste
  17. I thought Virginia’s drinking seemed like a whole lot at first, but I was surprised when she kept being the only one whose drinking was talked about. In several of their arguments, Erik seemed to be a hell of a lot drunker than she was. He seemed to be imbibing quite a bit too. His words were slurring like crazy across like three different episodes. Based on the last few episodes, I’m thinking/hoping that they might have just been basically partying their way through their first month of marriage and reality TV? Not what I’d have done, but not necessarily indicative of alcoholism. I do t
  18. I actually took it that way too personally. I’m open to being wrong but that’s what I thought her comment was about. I didn’t think she was saying, like, “man up and tell her to stop” - I thought she was saying “man up and actually be a husband to two women like you promised, or you’re going to lose at least one of us.” She came there under the assumption that they would be sister wives. It was Garrick who seemed to not be actually into that idea.
  19. Yeah, I remember several years later, Mariah basically said as much. In an interview with the producers she said she was just sick of hearing about it because she knew that her mom had been warned and *did* want to date someone else but refused to admit it. The lack of accountability would bother me too. I’m sure it would have been nice just to hear “you know what, I really should have listened to you. You had my best interests in mind.” Plus, it’s not like the kids asked to be public figures or have their parents’ business splashed all over the headlines. Imagine being 18 and your frien
  20. Right, it’s either fake and scripted or it’s giving me Matt and Amber from Teen Mom vibes - he moved in suddenly with her and just never went back home. That’s weird, not flattering.
  21. Personally, I still believe it. Texts suggesting that at one point she was into trying choking during sex, or enjoyed it at certain times, don’t have anything to do with whether he assaulted her with the headboard, whether Ashley assaulted her, whether her kids were scared, whether there was psychological abuse, or whether he went too far with the choking. That could easily go from BDSM to straight up unwanted violence. I also don’t see what she’d get out of making it up. Seems to me like she’d stand to gain more by staying (possible money, financial support, a visa, fame on the show) th
  22. Yeah, I always forget about the “vegan, devoutly Catholic billionaire” aspect of his shtick. Three things that ALWAYS go together. Seriously, if I was Meri’s kid I’d partly just be pissed at her for being so f*cking dumb. I know she felt desperate, but damn - just go on Match.com and meet an accountant. You are not going to meet a vegan Catholic billionaire in your Twitter DMs (or probably ever).
  23. One of the guys on there is considered unmatchable because he’s shallow and too focused on looks. Um... have they met Chris?
  24. Yeah, it’s a very unpopular opinion (and I do know Mariah isn’t perfect and comes across sanctimonious on social media) but I also didn’t blame Mariah for being mad at Meri about the whole catfish thing at first. First of all, Mariah was just around 18-19 when this was all happening, and had just come out or was just about to, so was probably going through some growing pains and self-consciousness herself. Her mom gets a legal divorce from her dad, which was probably weird. It’s also televised and public. Her parents have had her on a show about their polygamous relationship and how great
  25. @glitterpussy, totally re: Bri. She made a minor comment about organization, and even quickly covered it over by joking about how she’s organized enough for both of them. It was NOT some severe call-out or whatever. He responded by basically saying he asked the experts for someone who wasn’t her and he didn’t get what he wanted, as well as saying that he was turned off at their wedding which she likely remembers as a wonderful day. Like... damn! Calm down. I mean, what are their future conversations going to be like? “That thing you said this morning annoyed me a little, could you t
