    S06.E01: Single, Fat and Crazy

    Actually, I was surprised to see her eating twice in this episode -- once with a plate of scrambled eggs and a piece of toast, and again, with an apple and some cheese. Both seemed like good choices. (NOT that I am defending her - but at least it wasn't fried chicken and giant cookies).

    I am so angry watching this right now. Here's Whitney, crying over being fat, because she always thought that adoption would be her backup plan. Why not just lose the weight, Whitney? You have ALL these resources AT YOUR FINGERTIPS -- a reality show, with producers who would get behind you and give you whatever help necessary (trainers, weight loss surgery, nutritionist, etc.). And yet.....you'd rather be fat. Face it, that's what it comes down to. Your dysfunctional life is more important to you than any baby, adopted or natural.

    Because it's far less work to play the victim of the cruel fates of life than to try to change your life for the better.

    Why...why...why do I watch this show?? Her infantile flirty antics with Buddy -- you can tell she was eating it up -- his comments, his kiss, even his bumping and grinding against her ample body - even as she murmured the demure, "Ewwww...." every now and again.

    S07:E02 Brianne's Story

    As an aside to this (but not really) I found - on my facebook feed -- items from QVC, including a bathroom aide that allows one to wipe their private area after using the bathroom. I find it mildly alarming that this is a mainstream, everyday item to buy now. And I say this as a 50-something woman with 60 lbs to lose, so I'm not some stick thin person mocking the obese. I am obese.

    S07:E02 Brianne's Story

    I am so confused. I didn't realize you could watch the episodes early on TLC Go.....so I saw Brianne's episode, but it is billed as episode #2. What happened to #1? (ETA: Well, forget I even posted that. That's what I get for posting first, reading second!) I felt bad for Mom and Brianne during the restaurant scene. To just get up and leave her there (even though there was a production crew to take her home)...

    Season 6 Discussion

    I actually feel bad for Debbie. It's clear her world revolves around Colt. Now, whether that's healthy or not -- that's not the issue. It is the way things are. I believe she (unlike Larissa) at least tried to be welcoming. I don't know why they live such a spartan life, but if it's because money is tight (or Colt is stringy with the purse strings), no wonder Debbie was hurt/offended by Larissa thumbing her nose up at the house and decorations. Debbie probably never thought she'd have to share her son with anyone. Again, not healthy, but it's what she now has to overcome.

    I didn't like the Jamaican guy and his bimbette the minute they started talking about "what if you meet someone and they're fat, or gross? That's such a turnoff." Or something to that effect. They deserve each other.

    I was under the impression that Ansuelo was not present for the baby's birth, and that this was the first time he met him, face to face. Am I mistaken?

    I loved your answer. Thank you for the insight! My very best to you and your son!

    Yes, thank you for adding this. I didn't recall him staying it was the first time he'd been with a woman, either, but I couldn't recall the rest of it.

    LOL! My family was in awe of that meatball pot pie. You'd think we never saw convenience foods before.

    Thank you for saying what I was not brave enough to say.

    Season 6 Discussion

    My gosh !! Those Indonesian sisters -- they were so rude when they were talking to what's his name (sorry, I can't recall names yet -- too early in the season). They sure turned their noses up at that cabin, and the breakfast that they didn't have to cook for themselves. I am torn by Colt -- I know others have mentioned he might be on the spectrum due to this inability to discern her emotions, yet he spoke very eloquently to his mom, when he said he hoped they would grow together, and they would need their privacy. The NC realtor and the child bride....his friends seemed very welcoming to her.
