    It's funny that you mentioned that, Shay. I couldn't put my finger on it --- but something does see 'off' about her looks. I just assumed she had some bad plastic surgery or something.

    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.

    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.

    Re: Dr. Phil

    When Dr. Phil has these nasty, out of control, violent children on his show, I often wonder how the kids were parented when they were little-bitty. He never asks the parents if they exercised any discipline in their children's early training. If there is no mental illness, where is this crazy anger coming from?

    It seems like there are waaayyyy more anger-filled out of control kids and teen agers than there were in the past. And most of the ones I've seen, seem to have this feeling of 'entitlement' --- that they should be able to do whatever they want, and nobody has the right to tell them what to do. Not their parents, not their teachers, not the law --- nobody!

    I would imagine that that many of these kids are born with personalities that could easily go in that direction, but to me, it seems like the worst influences are OTHER KIDS (who they personally know, or who they see on TV and in the movies) - the ones who are doing all kinds of bad/wrong things, and these other kids will stoke their rebelliousness with huge amounts of peer pressure to do bad things, and to have this kind of bad attitude. I'm sure parents play some amount of role in all of this, but I've seen parents TRY to be good parents, but to the kids, what their FRIENDS think (and nowadays, what the haters on social media think) are waaayyyy more important than anything their parents think.

    And, by the way, it's really scary to see what these kids become, as adults.

    If that's so, then it still falls back on the parents. Parents need to monitor (or take away) their child's access to social media if it's having a negative affect on their child. Parents need to get more involved with their kid's life when it comes to who their child's hanging out with. Parents need to get to know the parents of their child's friends. Plus, they need to say no to their kids every once in awhile.... stop giving their kids name brand everything..... stop spoiling them rotten..... stop feeding their kids empty garbage in place of food. The need to make sure their child is doing their homework, and check it over for accuracy if the child is having problems in that area..... limit extracurricular activities until their lacking grades improve. Basically, be involved.
