    One of the rich girls was hoping that the new mom would not be fat BUT her mother dresses like that and that's OK.
    I would rather have a fat mom and one that dressed like she did.

    :phhht Rich b*tch is a big fat LOSER in life. Her kids were so superficial, that riding a school bus was a problem. Walking straight to the fridge and getting a glass of soda after the new mom said milk would be the beverage for their meal, showed what level of respect that woman was to expect. Fortunately, those girls seemed to bend a little, but I feel like they were playing for the camera in the end. On the "update" piece, I wonder if the were allowed to watch the show and see how ridiculous they appeared, so that they could come up with a better angle to show America.

    The farm family - well, they exemplify what hard work and love is all about. These folks are a-okay by my book. Sure, the kids were overworked, and it sounds as though they are going to make a change in that area. But overall, that family is rock solid. I would hope that my own boys would demonstrate that level of support should they see their parent in need.

    I believe there are plenty of "rich" wives who have had to work hard for their keep. Too bad wife swap can't locate some of those!

    The question shouldn't be "What's wrong with getting a damned ride?" but rather "What is wrong with walking ones skinny little spoiled a$$ down the street to get the bus when Mom just may have something better to do than chauffer her around?"

    Hmmm...I drive my son to school every day and I always have. I'm not rich, I love to have the extra time with him. I also remember my own childhood of ridicule on the bus, and the noise and the bad behavior and I decided I didn't want my son exposed to that. I am grateful that I am able to drive him and pick him up. I've had to work, so I only take part time jobs with flexible schedules. Sure, I could earn more money or have better jobs than I've had, but it has been important to me to be there for him. I never really thought that I was spoiling him, just being there for him in that particluar way.

    Up until I began teaching in a school different than where we live and I transferred them to mine, my kids rode the bus daily. I see no reason not to take advantage of that. However, if both parents and kids relish the daily drive to and from school, that's great too. I'm betting the girls didn't see the inside of the bus after that experience was over, and at least now they can tell their kids they DID ride the bus to school.
    The pouty little fit they threw about everything ... if I saw my kids treat another adult that way I'd bust some butts. That's what bothers me, that they were allowed to get away with that kind of behavior without consequences. At their age, they should have been talked to by dad, grounded or something.

    Now when the other kids disobeyed the 'rules' and showed up in the barn to help dad ... that's different. That's compassion and I was proud for them and their parents for that.

    Hey, I don't mean in any way to defend the rich bich, but didn't the farm family have six kids? While dad was slaving in the barn, she had to have been at least babysitting, if not doing some actual motherly type duties, and as any mother knows, running after toddlers and small kids is not exactly sitting around in feather boas. Think there was some pretty liberal editing going on there. That said, she sure was a nasty piece of work, and I was so glad to see her husband side with Audrey several times. Think it was a real eye opener for her.

    Hey - this is a game - don't be upset with me...I don't like milk either. If someone tried to tell me to drink it - I would say no - pick another beverage that does not come from an animal please. And riding a bus - oh come on - what is WRONG with it?? It is a school bus - plenty of kids ride them EVERY DAY. It did not harm those kids in any way, and maybe, just maybe they learned that there are bigger issues than in what automobile one arrives at school in. Jeeesh!!

    There always is some liberal editing going on, however I do believe that I read in Audreys manual, that the older kids look out for the younger ones, so it was probably BOA mom laying around while the older kids took care of the others. As with so many other shows this is entertainment folks, and a real picture of the two families will never be had.

    As for the girls in the family, personally I thought they in the beginning were rather snotty and should have been locked in their rooms for a few years.
