And I couldn't agree more about the children, either. This has bothered me since Jason, the single father. These poor children are dragged on camera to spend time with strangers that they may never see again, and you expect them to be all lovey-dovey like this is a soap commercial? I just want to hide my eyes whenever this happens on this show. That's another reason why I won't watch if Emily is the next Bette. I will not watch little Ricki get exploited for another season.
That's why I feel she would be the phoniest Bette ever. Even if, say, they had a guy with a six-figure salary, a lawyer or some other big shot, would that really be enough after being NASCAR royalty and living off all those millions? I just cannot see that happening. Didn't she start dating Ricki when she was a teenager? That's a lot of time to get used to being spoiled, and so it would be VERY hard to suddenly give that up and go back to being ordinary.She's pretty much been spoiled her whole life by having money handed to her and living with fame (by virtue of her connection with the Hendricks), that she is not going to settle for anything mundane or ordinary. I'm pretty sure she has her sights set on more exciting and lucrative endeavors.
