I turned on the show when they were introducing us to the feminist mom, and I thought "oh dear, she's going to be the problem parent". Wrong! Oh my, but those pageant parents are a complete waste of space. I do feel sorry for young Paris. She appears that she might have been capable of some real depth and emotion, but those horrific toads who engendered her seem to have effectively smothered any ability in her to rise above. She seemed to be actively enjoying her time with the "feminist pig" toward the end, learning and baking and generally breaking out of her enforced role of "sparkler", but her idiot mother's return had her immediately returning to form, referring to feminist mom as a psycho.
Seriously, what sort of an idiot doesn't think it's a good idea for their kid(s) to learn self-sufficiency? I don't have kids myself, but if I did, the boys would learn to cook and to clean, and the girls would learn at least basic mechanics and home repair, and they would all help around the house and none of them would ever be allowed to speak to service staff in that manner without serious repercussions.
