    Remember, The Sith Lord Kate Gosselin only has the power we give her.

    It just occurred to me that Robyn’s sister actually lives with Robyn and her children. How much help can she possibly need with the business if in addition to having 5 or 6 teenagers around that can babysit, she also has her sister living with her full time.

    Honestly I have never watched a minute of this show but I enjoy the recaps and photo captions so much! The KG interludes on this one are priceless and now I am convinced more than ever she doing a TLC executive because she is pure evil in human form.

    If I remember my Bible learnin’ correctly, Solomon was the favorite son of the favorite wife of King David. Way to shade the other kiddos and wives, Robyn.

    Well, that’s just fine dontchaknow? They aren’t hormone riddled teenagers! They don’t have any hormones to spare that try to escape out of their mouths.

    In the first season Christine made a big deal that Kody kissed Robyn before they were married. She said she didn’t cause, she would be kissing someone else’s husband or something like that. In any case Kody courted and kissed Robyn prior to marrying her, while one of his wives was at home pregnant.

    When Kody and Janelle were talking about how they’ve upped their romance game, I said to myself, “Gee – wonder when Robyn announces she’s pregnant or that she wants another baby?” And boy did I call that one or what? She can’t stand to not have all the attention heaped on her.

  • Someone please explain to me how kissing someone is like cheating on your husband when this tool is literally banging a household full of women? How could sex POSSIBLY be precious when you’re sticking it in everywhere?

    Well, good to know these are the same lazy, selfish, dumb Browns we’ve come to know and loathe. SO kind of TLC to not bother with anything novel or original that might require viewers to expend brain power or compassion. At least there are good recaps. 🙂

    In all this grossness, the most terrifying thing is the specter of Kate Gosselin returning to haunt our TV screens! That hair…she looks like a bad caricature of of Heidi Pratt. (Tragically, that may be her goal.) Katie dear, you’re not charming, interesting, twenty-something, or a good mother, so stop pretending and go away before your children die of embarrassment.
