I read between the lines, and saw that the husband (Mr. Bowers) wasn't to a very nice person either. He's the one the one, his daughter called "evil", he's the one that blamed Lisa for his family's weight problem, when he does all the cooking. I think he was putting on a front, for the camera, and Mrs. Pilek. I don't hate any of them, I don't know them personally. I do see beyond Lisa's rough exterior, and sympathize (sp) with her. Yurek acted like a jerk. Plain and simple.
Decan said:I've watched the show 2 times, and it didn't seem like she asked in a mean way to me. She didn't ask them to scrub the floor, or wash the dishes, she asked Zach to load the dishwasher, and Katy to fold the towels, that's not akin to scrubbing the floor, and it sure isn't washing the dishes. Funny thing is, during the start of the 1st episode, Jurek was saying that the kids were spoiled. I watched some of the comments that Lisa made, and they were demeaning, but she said with a smile, and a cute laugh. Point is, both families had problems, if they were perfect, they wouldn't be on TV. While I agree that Lisa was crass, the minute she walked in the door, the kids, and Jurek were treating her funny. Just my observations.Demands (not even asking or politely suggesting) them to scrub the floor, to wash those dishes, to do the laundary- probably would've been without Lisa's help or supervision.
