I have more of a problem with Mack than Britten. He can jump his ass on Trulia or Realtor.com just like she can and find a house and a school for the kids. Why can't he pack up the kids and move to the Air B & B rental with Britten? They don't even need to sell their Orlando home; they can rent it out. What are they doing on the weekends that he's out there with the kids? He needs to let his fingers do the walking right on over to Zillow.com and find some houses to tour, call up a CA real estate agent and the next weekend he's out there with the kids they go look at some houses and throw down a contract. If Mack feels Britten is dragging her feet about getting a house, call her bluff: arrange a house hunting weekend and see what happens.
But see, I don't think Britten is the only one dragging her feet...
Having said that, she doesn't need to go to L.A. to practice her specialty; if she wants to be on TV that bad she can go right on over to OG Married to Medicine and join that cast. She's already friends with Contessa and has already met Quad, Heavenly & Simone. Mack already knows Scott.
No one is saying that kids shouldn't have to stick out tough situations. This shielding of kids from life's disappointments is why kids today are running amok and out of control every time they get handed an L.
However, to pull a black kid out of a black/diverse environment and throw them into a white environment without preparing that kid for what may happen, is irresponsible. I'm not saying Noelle did this; she did have a concern her daughter may have adjustment issues going from a diverse environment to a white environment. So, Noelle isn't unaware. Unfortunately in these "Make America Great Again" times, we've seen hate crimes against non-whites go up 200% in some areas, we've seen reports of harassment in the classroom/team sports etc. So it's important for Noelle to prepare her daughter, reinforce what's good about her and make sure she does have the support of her more diverse friends. Noelle needs to let each and every one of her child's teachers know what's good and that she's keeping her eye on them and on her child. Unfortunately, there are teachers (black and white) who will say slick and demoralizing stuff to Black, Latino and poor White children that they would never think to say to middle/upper income White children.
Even the kids who desegregated the schools back in the 50s & 60s were prepared by their parents & communities as to what could happen & how they should handle themselves. Noelle does seem to have a good head on her shoulders so I'm sure she'll do the right thing for her child.
As far as administering Botox & guiding yoga, L.A. is probably the only place besides maybe NYC where Noelle could have a practice like that, because of the abundance of wealthy people with disposable incomes out there.
