Curiosity got the better of me, and I watched the tape I made. Not that much has changed except that the kids are older and Jon is not there. Same expensive trip that only a tiny few could possibly afford; multiple parties for the younger kids.
I thought the skimpy bikini Kate wore was very inappropriate. I wonder if the older girls find her choice of clothing embarrassing and get teased about it at school.
Kate still cackling and screaching; it's like nails on a chalkboard.
If Jamie is such a dear and long-time friend, why have we only started seeing her recently? I think one reason the kids like the crew is because they take the place of grandparents, uncles, aunts and cousins most kids have. Kate has cut relatives out of their lives. I think Jon has reintroduced them to some, which is wonderful.
I did try and watch the second hour which seemed to be all Kate, all the time, but I just couldn't stomach it. My heart goes out to those children being raised by a mother like that. However, many other children have grown up in less-than-great conditions and somehow triumphed. What a rude awakening for those children when the fancy trips and go-to-the-head-of-the-line outings finally end, and they will be treated just like everyone else. I hope they don't end up like some child actors who are never able to transition to an ordinary life.
