  1. But the thing is, unless someone is directly involved in the situation, everything is second hand information. And with second and third hand information, every time the story is told, it is changed slightly (or significantly)...just like playing the telephone game. So, there is a good chance that what is being shared is completely embellished with only hints of truth. And there is NO way for you to know otherwise unless you were physically present and witnessed it. And it’s being spread as truth. And yes, it could definitely bring on legal ramifications if it gets back to someone, whether it’s the truth or not. It’s easy to forget (or ignore) that these are real people, in real jobs...not just figured on tv.
  2. Me too. I hate the whole “I won’t tell the class, but pm me if you want the tea” crap, but now I gotta know. Will one of you with the info pass it on or just post it for everyone? Lol
  3. I totally agree. Brennan has always been one of my favorites (even the years she didn’t make it), and it is solely because of the way she presents herself. She is one of the few that I follow on Instagram. She always seems happy, and genuine. She seems mature and sweet. She could be the polar opposite of those things in real life (I wouldn’t believe it, haha), but everything she has shown has been positive. I may be in the minority, but I love her look. She seems like one who is just happy to be on the team. If she never makes how group, group leader, or point, she seems as though just being on the team is enough. And I respect that a lot. I hope for great things for her.
  4. Christina - I don’t think she should have ever made it in the first place. savannah - I just don’t see what others see in her. I don’t think she’s attractive and she’s a mediocre dancer at best. Another one that should never have made it. Amber - I’m sure she’s great, but she just doesn’t do anything for me.
  5. I totally agree with everything you said.
  6. Exactly. “Different” is the new thing. Their peers won’t even think twice about it. I’ve taught for many years...Draper and “Scottie” are tame compared to some names I’ve had. 🤷‍♀️ I wouldn’t have chosen them, but I don’t think they are the worse ever or setting her kids up for a lifetime of ridicule.
  7. While I admit they are not names I would have chosen, I think she said they were family names. I’m a sucker for sentimental, so I can appreciate them for that reason. Besides, I have seen much, much worse!
  8. Wasn’t Victoria trying for So You Think You Can Dance, not World of Dance? I agree, she’s not good enough, but I don’t think the 3 girls were doing the same thing.

    Jill & Derick Dullard: Counting On (Donations)

    I hate admitting this, but my table is currently pushed to the wall...for 1 reason. I have a toddler that runs through and is accident prone. The table has sharp corners. I push it as far back as I can to give her more room and to save her head/eyes from the corners. Make no mistake though, when we have guests, the table is pulled back to the center of the room, under the light like it is supposed to be. 🤷‍♀️
  10. Christina’s teeth remind me of the episode of Friends when Ross bleached his teeth too much and they glowed. I just can’t with her.

    Joe & Kendra: Looking Forward To Side Hugs

    I was born and raised in a Baptist church and I have never heard the “pagan” reasoning for not calling it Easter! That’s definitely new to me! People I know do sometimes refer to Easter as Ressurection Day, because it is the day (observed, anyway) that Jesus resurrected from the dead. But everyone I know still refers to, and celebrates “Easter” as well. In fact, after church yesterday, my church had an egg hunt, AND the Easter Bunny there for the kids. And the Easter Bunny came to my house and left a bunch of eggs and huge Easter baskets for my kids. I know there are some people who don’t do Santa and Easter Bunny for their own personal reasons (that I obviously don’t agree with), but I have never understood why you can’t have the true meaning of these holidays while still keeping some holidY magic for the kids. They can co-exist. I grew up with Bible preaching all the time, went to a Christian school...I KNEW the real meaning of the holidays. And yet, Santa still came every year. I was never confused by this. I’m raising my kids the same way. We absolutely talk about the “why” of the holidays, but we have fun with them as well.
  12. Wow. Cianna is one of my favorite rookies, but she definitely looks soft (for DCC standards, not normal ones). I’m surprised she is still in uniform, unless this is just an unfortunate, unflattering picture.

    Season 8 Discussion

    I hate defending this, but Tori is from rural Tennessee. Southerns cook different. We throw the beans in a sauce pan with a hunk of fat back or streak of lean and cook them down. I had been married for several years before I ever had a sautéed green bean...and I hated them. Haha i may have misunderstood Tori regarding the dinner (I was definitely multitasking while watching and don’t really care to watch it again), but I thought Tori said it was Erin’s recipe, not that Erin made it.

    Josiah and Lauren: He Has To Marry Somebody

    Exactly. It’s called a chemical pregnancy and it’s very real and happens very frequently. Most of the time, it happens and women didn’t even know they were pregnant. I don’t think they are lying. For anyone who has been desperately trying to conceive, she would know roughly how long her cycles usually are. She may not know at 19 how her body works, when she ovulates, and how long after to start testing, but I can guarantee she was testing around 10 days before her period was due because she just couldn’t help herself and couldn’t wait. I’ve been part of TTC groups for years. These women are more informative than my doctors - they know their stuff. And even they just can’t resist the urge. Haha. I’m sure Lauren was just 4 weeks along when she got her positive. And I’d guess, lost it shortly after, between 5-6 weeks, with just a heavier than normal period. I’ve had 2 chemicals that I’m aware of. If I wasn’t tracking my cycles so closely, I doubt I would even have known I had them. No matter what, I wish them the best. I hope they have a happy, healthy pregnancy...when they are ready for one.

    The every other month thing is inaccurate. Either ovary can release an egg any month. So there’s no way to know (other than checking on ultrasound each month) which side is realeasing the egg, and if it will be the side with the good tube or the bad. I, too, have a blocked tube. We’ve been trying for 2 1/2 years. Tracking ovulation, timed intercourse, medication to stimulate ovaries, we’ve even done IUIs and actually placed the sperm in my uterus (not to be confused with IVF, which is completely different) and...no luck. You definitely CAN get pregnant with just 1 tube, but it’s not always easy. And I’d venture to guess even some of the things my husband and I have done are things Michael and Brandon would view as going against God’s plans. * not directed at you, bitterapple!
