  1. I enjoy their show and if they are in it for the money I see nothing wrong with that. All of the reality shows, the people are probably in it for the money. Even the ones that have money like the Real Housewives Beverly Hills have no problem earning the money. I loved when the exchange student was on their show.

  2. I stopped watching their show. I didn’t like the way they pushed the older children out of the house when they reached 18. In general, I think they don’t treat their kids like they care about their feelings.
