    I can't get over how small Zach and Katie are for their age. I am willing to bet they are not allowed to eat carbs or anything sweet. How sad!
    Couple observations:

    1. Samantha uses encouraging words to build relations with the Bowers children. She praised the kids, took Eric to a chef's kitchen to let him explore new things, suggested Katlyn to let her hair down often because the latter was pretty etc.

    2. Lisa, on the other hand, tended to make fun of the Pilek children. At the batting cage, she constantly yelled "That's a strike etc." instead of giving the kid encouraging word to do better.

    From what I saw, Lisa wanted to be a new boss in the house, not a new mommy.

    Samantha is just a gem of a person...I really like how she took each Bowers child for some alone time and did things they like.

    You made an explicit comment and didn't care how others would find it. That's how Lisa felt about her upfront personality if you don't recall.

    I could care less if she wants to be Britney, nor do I care if Zach wants to be a baseball star. Good for them. .
    Lisa may have been right about them going in for a disappointment with those unrealistic goals. They'll learn as they get older.

    Take it as you will, but whoever said life is fair for all? The Pileks have been more blessed than some ring around the collar worker, so some critics may dislike that fact.

    I did take it as I will..
    What I'm noticing here is a striking resemblance of your highbrow statements and the neighbors/friends of the Pileks.

    Are you one of them? Please, be honest.

    If y'all can't play nice, I'll have to hand out time-outs. And we won't need a maid to do it.

(that never happens unless I'm under incredible distress ) I know it's a reality show, but human feelings were being smashed and it was painful to watch. I know Lisa is a bit rough- but she and her family didn't deserve what they got on national television

    I agree. That's how they are, that's how they live, and there is nothing wrong with that. Thier used to that lifestyle. Lisa may be rude but Samantha's husband was rude to. This show really makes me think.

    The venue we were discussing was national television. People, such as Lisa and the people on the boat, should try to appear more civil on tv.

    Tried "insults" aren't allowed here. Did you think the comment about Tammy acting the way she did because she was a former trucker considered high brow?

    Lisa's family was not mistreated.

    What I meant was Samantha's friends ( ) were saying really mean things about Lisa (her trailer size, her insecurity and the comment about "can you imagine her husband?") That has to affect her family and if it was my family I would be extremely hurt by it.

    The Pilek Neighbors were very rude to Lisa. Yes, Lisa can be a bit loud and obnoxious, but the brunette with the big teeth, laughing loud on the boat, making fun of Lisa because she was a dental hygenist, making comments about her husband, etc. was totally out of line and just as loud and obnoxious as Lisa ever was on this show. Oh its very unattractive when you brag on how good you look, how pretty you are and how small you are compared to others. Their friends may dress well and look beautiful, but their personality on the inside is UGLY... and makes them just as ugly on the outside. I am sure when the Bowers family seen this episode.. their feelings were hurt. I hope Samantha watches it very closely and sees how her family and friends behaved and treated someone that was a guest in her home. The Pileks could use a lesson on Manners and How to treat others around you. Just because you have more money, luxuries, etc than others (be it by working or having it handed to you) doesnt give you the right to treat other people with such unkindness. The golden rule goes a long way in all social classes of people. I also noticed Mr Pilek and Katie were folding clothes and cleaning the house a bit before Samantha got home, wonder if they deducted that from the maids pay??
