Did I miss seeing a dog in any show? I kept thinking back to all the full family get togethers in the different houses and back yards and just can't remember ever seeing that dog
This is pretty much what I said to my dd last night, lol.

I'm curious - why do you say that Janelle has been like the second husband?

I was pretty annoyed with the 2nd episode on Sunday. It seemed to me like it was a big whiney gimme gimme show. Oh poor us, we need this money to buy our 4 giant homes. So you need to purchase from us.

Huh???!!!

& I guess they expected people to log onto the website immediately when it was launched and start tossing everything in their cart and check out really fast?? How bizarre.

And when they laughed at Meri reading the comment that everything was overpriced? Um it is....you're trying to make too much profit off of stuff that doesn't appeal to the mainstream audience.

I don't get the "living on the financial edge" bit if the previously posted figure of
$75,000/adult/episode is correct. That would be a very high annual income per household (at least for now). New houses or not, one would wonder why Christine couldn't pay her water bill on that kind of money, or for that matter why they would have any outstanding debt at all. They don't appear to be living a particularly lavish lifestyle; we do a lot more on less. Very curious for more insight into this!

It seems to me that they could move further outside of Las Vegas and build a really big home for all of them ,since they are missing the closeness that they had in Utah.
I completely agree with this.

Why aren't they building one big combo house like they had before? Just because 4 the four houses are right next to each other does not mean they are set-up for dozens of people to gather together for family events without being right on top of each other. I cannot see it being the same.

Christine sounds like she misses the group mom thing, in Utah she was the stay at home mom while Meri and Janelle worked outside the home. She cared for their children and she is now expecting the same from them. I don't see that happening either...

Before the three residences were separate but connected.

They've said that they want separate houses (at least in part) to protect their resale value.

It just seems like, from the first few seasons, that she went out and was the second major breadwinner, while the other two wives/moms took care of her kids. (Maybe I should have said "traditional" husband!) She's always seemed to be the one worried about finances, and often mentioned that she worked really long days at her old job in Utah.

Plus in the episode where she and Kody go off for their own vacation, he talks about how she's always been the one he could talk to about everything, how they were friends long before anything else, etc.

I know it's mean to generalize, but it seems as though he has his "first" wife, his "friend/working" wife, his "mothering" wife, and then his "trophy" wife. Which, if it works for them, so be it!
