In general, if it's that hard to persuade someone to get help, it's a doomed mission from the start. And Cindy really, really didn't want to get help.
I thought it was funny at the start of the episode that the caregiver made Cindy a home-cooked 'pre-breakfast' (eggs, bacon and fries) first thing. When she brought it out, I was amazed at how normal the size of the meal was. Of course, after all the grunting, moaning and whining while Cindy lumbered 6 feet from bed to bathroom and got cleaned up, the caregiver brought in the REAL breakfast of fried chicken, biscuits and mac n cheese-enough to feed a family of 8.🤢
I wonder why Cindy's family seemed to be pretty much uninvolved with her. More to that story than we were told, I think.
My expectations for this show are hovering at zero this season. At least Cindy didn't bring any small animals or children into the story, her place wasn't filthy, she had no tattoos, and she didn't gorge like an animal (on camera, at least). But I can't remember the last time someone on this show lost a noticeable amount of weight.
I was expecting to see the BSOD, but have no doubt we'll get an announcement at some point in the next couple of years.
