I live in Chicago's Edgewater neighborhood (about 7 miles north of the Loop). And a restaurant across the street from me, Tedino's, a pizzeria/Italian place, told me that last week a couple from this show dined out on their sidewalk patio. From the description it sounds like these two, even though his bio says he lives in Indy. The manager said the crew spent some BIG bucks and tipped very well. I'll keep an eye on the show to see when/if it airs.

While I understand why they didn't want to participate in the show (I know he had a lot of problems with the way things were edited, there was an article about it on TWOP somewhere) but for my own selfish reasons I would have liked just a quick update, even just a "they are still married and happy".  When watching the marathon yesterday I have to say they were one of my favorite couples, crazy ex-wife and all : )

Haven't seen the catch-up special yet, but maybe they were prohibited from even mentioning them? If they were that unhappy with the original portrayal they may have sent lawyers after them basically barring TLC from talking about them ever. But I dunno.

 

Anyone know if the catch-up is On Demand yet? I think it aired at the same time as Walking Dead, haha.

I hate when people blame editing for the way they are portrayed.  The thing is, the editors can only work with what you give them, because while they can edit out, they can't edit in.

Agreed but that doesn't stop people from taking legal action. Or they are just being bratty little kids who won't play nice.

From what I've read, they are fine and doing well. And they can't take legal action once they sign the contract to appear on the show. But, deciding not to come back for any more is probably their way of saying "no thank you!"

For those wondering, they are still together. I have seen some of their 2014 Christmas pics (just so ya'll know it's not just a rumour I heard).

Good for them. I was really curious after they "refused to appear" on the update episode.

I think Louis spoke too much about how TLC works and they didn't want him to back to spill anymore information. I also think Louis needed any extra money(however little it is for reunions/updates) more then any other cast member and TLC didn't want to give him another dime.  In my search for Alan's real timeline, I posted some questions and Louis answered me. He said he was still happily married and talked  about the creative editing and timeframes.

Just by listening to them speak during the episodes they seemed to be under the impression that they were doing something like a Lisa Ling documentary and not a Kardashian clone show. I speculate that once the interest was shown the production assistant did her best possible sales job to push the "documentary" angle. They needed someone to fill time.

They didn't like to be fed lines. They didn't like the forced scenes and dialogue and how involved the ex wife was. Money or lack thereof had very little to do with it.

I'm glad to learn that the scenes with the ex were producer driven and not their choice. It was such an awkward thing to watch.
