The new season of Sister Wives debuted last night on TLC. The family is in a bit of upheaval since the move to Las Vegas.
Kody and Robyn announced the imminent arrival of their baby. The news was joyous to some; less than enthusiastic from others. The most notable lack of excitement was from Kody's second wife Janelle. As Robyn expressed on camera; a pregnancy is proof of the intimacy between husband and wife. It is the one time when it is impossible for the other wives to ignore the obvious.
The hardest hit by the pregnancy was Mariah, Meri and Kody's only child. Meri is Kody's first wife, but has only been able to have one child. Mariah was so concerned about her mother's feelings that she burst into tears. Robyn came to console her, understanding the delicate nature of the matter.
Many of the children are having a difficult time adjusting to their new surroundings. This is especially true for Janelle and Kody's son, Hunter. I feel bad for him. Poor kid! He has shut down since the family arrived in Las Vegas. He was once an avid football player. Now, he has no desire.
The change has been devastating for Hunter.
Can't wait to see what this season brings. I have one question already; and it concerns finances. In Utah the family had two homes between the four wives. In Las Vegas there are four homes; one for each wife. How are they affording it? I know Janelle no longer works. Do reality stars get paid more than I think? Is housing a steal in Vegas? Somebody tell me!
I saw Contagion this past weekend. You might call it a horror movie. It is scary that this movie is closer to reality than fiction. I don't want to give away the entire plot, but the scenario seems plausible.
If you are a germaphobe, you might want to skip it. It put fear into my hubby.
There are a few scenes that make me appreciate my two month food storage downstairs. Food does take the place of money during times of want!
Matt Damon was great, but when is he not? Hubby is a big fan of Matt's. (Do you think he put on a little weight for the role? He looked a little bloated to me.)
The movie boasted a list of A line actors including: Gwyneth Paltrow, Laurence Fishburn and Bryan Cranston.
This movie is theater worthy!
