When I first saw V. Stiviano on TV, she looked to me to be a combination of Filipino and either black or Latino, not black and Latino. I remember a episodes a few years ago of The Amazing Race being filmed in the Philippines and the contestants riding in party taxis with "trannies," as I recall they were named. They were Filipino transsexual boys decked out in female clothing and garish makeup and looked very similar to V. Stiviano.
The show with the older widow mom who was catfished, sold her home and gave $196,000 to a man she met on-line.
A shame. Why did the woman think the man could not use a phone?
Maybe people should be required to watch the show "Catfish"
Consoling words from Dr. Phil are nice, but she went to the extreme putting herself in peril. She did not listen to her sons, or common sense. Perhaps her husbands death made her a desperate person.
I am not sure how I would handle such a defiant person....probably show her the catfish show and give her two warnings.
You can do it!
Today's show with druggie moms--The first one was a mother who lost her two children. After 15 years, she wanted to talk to the youngest. The youngest one was adopted by his bio uncle. He changed his name, and led a good life. His aunt and uncle (mom and did) raised him well. They taught him that it is important who you are around, that his bio mom would never be good for him, that he needs to take care of himself by staying away from her.
I was impressed that the young man knew to stay away from his mother. So many children try to win their loser parents love; and they ruin their lives by trying to relive a problem childhood. Not looking for love, validation or anything from the bio mom was the true solution. She is pickled in her head. I could see her only trying to manipulate him to her own end, to get money or attention. I only see toxic.
The older daughter has not escaped the mother's treachery. She should not let her children be around her mother. It does not matter that her mother is off of drugs. Put your kids around good people. Learn from your little brother. You know that your mother is no good for him. Likewise, she is no good for you.
I think Dr. Phil might be a good show for youths to learn something, to not seek attention from the wrong people.
