OK, I don't even know where to go with the dad-as-Jesus-freak vs. mom-as-reincarnation-freak dynamic of Naomi's divorced parents. It certainly explains the divorce, though. ;) And, yeah, some of us get way closer to JC during the divorce process. But that doesn't explain the whole dead dove and "serious interest" in reincarnation.
Remember that woman a few seasons ago who hired actors to play her parents acting like asses? It was really uncomfortable at the time, but in hindsight it was funny.
Anyway, I'm back to Jillian again, after hesitating last week and thinking maybe Melissa. Her parents should be ashamed of themselves. If it's one thing I've learned in these almost 7 years of being a mother, it's that you just suck it up for your kid. Puke in the eye, no sleep for three years, suffering through endless birthday parties, permanent indentations in the bottoms of your feet from stepping on Legos, selling hot dogs in the blazing sun to support the Little League team, getting a hideous perm because your daughter wants you to look "cool" in 1986, etc. And if your kid needs you to go on national TV having dinner with some guy on a reality show, you suck it the eff up and say "What should I wear?" and start flipping through your recipe book.
Molly, who smiles and pretends everything is Ok because that's what she has to do for her family, is going to have a major midlife crisis in approximately 15 years, and will leave her family-approved husband, spend two weeks camping in Taos, and come back to spend the rest of her life with a guy who rides a motorcycle and refuses to wear a hat.
I miss Stephanie and her insane clothing.
