  1. Please stop writing articles about Jamie Otis and Doug Hehner. They’re horrible parents. They exploit their kids for $$$$$. Ever since getting pregnant, Jamie and Doug pretty much ignore their two kids. Anytime they do spend with their kids is because they use them as props for their ridiculous social media posts and videos. They are also exploiting their unborn babies. They don’t deserve the two kids they have now and they certainly don’t deserve the next two.
