Just got done watching the weight loss sister wives (my mom allowed me into her comcast account, and I can see the new ones from there… YAY, THANK YOU MOM!!!!).
Here’s what I have to say, I identify with these women.
Do I want to become polyg? No. But here are my thoughts.
1. They’re overweight, many women are overweight, and they’re working to change it. I love that. 🙂 Poor, poor Janelle, you could see that first day was a doozy!
2. I really like how reality TV shows us different choices people choose and how that affects their whole life. Jon and & Kate was a good one for that, but this one’s an extreme example. I love reality tv. I’m a junkie. I also love biographies, and just peeks into real life. Once they start going on cruises, less real – less fun.
3. These are women of faith. I have faith, I do things that seem crazy to people sometimes. I’m glad that they’re showing people who make decisions based on faith. We don’t see that much anymore. It’s happy thing.
In other news, Kody is an idiot. He doesn’t get how hard transitions are on women. I mean, Christine’s still post-partum, he’s knockin’ up #4 and poor Janelle went to a new town and being a full time stay at home mom. I can’t imagine all the angst that’s around them. Makes for great TV. I have a real problem with how he just made this decision. I get the sense that Christine is tired of decisions being made without her input.
I really wish they’d stop the Utah layers though. Really, there are plenty of shirts that don’t need a tank top over them. PLENTY of them. TLC, take them to a real store. 🙂
I love sister wives. I know a lot of people think I’m supporting polygamy, or Mormon stereo-types when I watch it. But I really don’t think I am. I think I’m understanding them a little bit more, and I think I understand a little bit more about what some of my pioneer ancestors went through. I think they show that women NEED other women. Solid women who are there to help. I’m glad Drew just didn’t marry any of those friends of mine. 🙂
