Didn't Jill also manage to snag a front seat for a Plath wedding? Or a least she was right up there taking pictures during the ceremony!

I think many ppl get worried about how they're going to manage to give their 10% when they join a church.It seems the Rods not only are able to bypass that,they also manage to grift from their church as well.WTHeck? I guess keeping your kids thin,dressed like Cinderella and in thrift store rejects has it's advantages

The Rods make up nearly half of the congregation, and the Dinguses are a large part of the rest. Jill feels entitled to front row seats.

But Jill always feels entitled, so it's nothing new. 

Jill said she chose this church because it had a big neon sign on the roof that said KJV, and she knew it was the right church for the family. There are photos of the sign somewhere. However, maybe the sign has been removed because the pastor and the congregation were terrified of attracting another rude, bossy, grifter like Crazy Jill.

You'd think she'd get a clue from the amount David apparently eats.

But I kwym.I don't have any brothers,but when my cousin from Fl came to stay with us,he would eat a whole mixing bowl full of mashed potatoes every day for dinner.My mom told him if he would go dig them from the garden,she would fix them.He'd never had food fresh from a garden,so that was a real treat.She fixed one bowl just for him,and one for everyone else.LOL

LOL, my nephew loved, I mean loved mashed potatoes.  So much so that when he came to stay for weekends, my mother would make bowls of mashed potatoes with parmesan cheese added, and he would wolf that right down.  I remember going to a local supper club for mother's day, and he went to the buffet for a huge plate of nothing but mashed potatoes.  I kid you not when I say that everyone seated, and there was a huge room full, was watching him carry that plate to his table.  He added about 10 packets of butter to the top, then just swallowed it whole.  I never saw anything like it, lol.  It breaks my heart to think that the Rodrigues boys are probably just as capable of eating like this, but are denied by a clueless mother who seems to value looks over health.  Suck it, Jill.

And Jill is taking a selfie.

If that picture doesn't sum up JRod in a nutshell, I don't know what does. A complete and total narcissist who disregards every person and situation in her quest to make everything about herself. Hell, even RFP Jeremy doesn't even take selfies in church during the damn service. She takes narcissism to a whole new level.

Her selfie taking in a Church no less is just so odd. I'd never ever entertain that particular notion. It's so disrespectful and WHY is no one telling her that?? It can't be that they matter to the congregation, they've no money or anything to offer.

Singing in harmony I love too, but this was giving me tinnitus. Since sharing is caring, I did not want you lot to miss out on the lovely harmonies;-)

Going back to my response on this from a couple of days ago, I'll grant that the couple of glasses of wine I'd had with dinner may have caused me to be a *cough* little more generous in my reaction than the performance warranted.

I still stand behind their actually enjoying to sing harmonies together, and even that, in general, Jill seems to have some minor talent outside of her wanting her voice to be first and foremost all. the. time. But, I gave it another listen this morning, and found it a complete train wreck. I know she's far from perfect even at the best of times, but I had always given her some credit for at least staying mostly on key. This was everywhere but! And I honestly thought she would at least have had a good enough ear to realize that this performance would probably have made the most tone-deaf of people cringe. 

One can only assume, of course, that their normal audiences are not tipsy enough to overlook it. Or maybe they all have an anticipatory tipple just to get through...

The way I see it is she’s giving GOD the middle finger when she does that.  When the average man or woman goes to a church service they’re there to worship God.  Jill, however, is there to worship the almighty Jill by staring at herself in a cellphone screen.  Shrek should be the one to put a stop to it.

Who took the picture of Jill taking the photo of herself? I think the minister should have a talk with her. Our pastor/church requires that all cell phones should be on mute and/or put away during services.

Yes. She and David had a falling out with the people running the church about doctrine and left. Then, Jill and crew, with instruments, returned to sing at a funeral of someone they knew, and they were turned away. This is Jill's sob story of her "persecution" and how brave and godly she was after being "ripped to shreds." I have some doubts about her rendition of the event (told here at a ladies' meeting), but there's no question that Jill R. is the queen of drama. 

They stayed even though they didn't sing. There was probably food after the funeral they weren't going to pass up. Jill is the queen of grifting too.

But, but, but doesn’t the Bible say that the husband is supposed to be the head of the family?  Did #bestmamaever forget to read that verse?  What say ye, Jill???

Opps, I forgot!  Jill is busy, trying to move up the ranks in Plexus!  Her entire InstaStory is about Plexus and its benefits.  She’s claiming that it REALLY helps with hair growth, while at the same time she’s wearing hair extensions.  I would kind of like to live in her brain for 24 hours.  It would have to be a once-in-a-lifetime experience, that’s for sure.

Yeah, a couple of us have noticed that. Thyroid problems are no joke and when I looked at the ingredients in Plexus, I noticed some that can aggravate thyroid issues, too. She's playing with fire but she'll never know since she refuses to go to an evil doctor and instead spends her money on useless junk like grandfather clocks. At this point, I kind of wonder who will collapse first, Jill or David.

I did SmileDirect to fix one tooth that bothered me. It was $100 a month or $1k upfront if I remember correctly. Braces weren’t covered under my insurance. One thing about invisible aligners is that you have to wear them for something like 22 hours a day. You only pop them out to eat so...make your own conclusions on the next 10-12 months of Sammer’s “fasting” schedule.

See that what bugs me the most. Jill is always dressed in properly fitted clothes with fake jewelry to match. She does not look like a 99 cent thrift store buys. Her kids look like she gets their clothes from a dumpster. Jill must own a ton of clothes/fake jewelry etc. Even Shrek wears poor fitting clothes.

Amongst us heathen Catholics, nobody but old folks who are hard of hearing sit in the front row.  Not much competition there, although I do try to sit in the front third of the church because I have the attention span of a gnat and my mind wanders to grocery lists, TV shows and other trivia if I'm not towards the front.

In Jill's case, I am sure she would elbow anyone out of the way to sit in the front row.  We've seen her do it at countless weddings. even for people she barely knew.  She also went to the funeral of children who'd died in a fire who she did not know and not only sat in front at the service, but took selfies with the tiny caskets.  Everything is a chance to take a selfie in Jill's world.
