"DO NOT LIKE SAMMANTHA"S FAMILY"
I think the west coast family, (Pilek i think), were so RUDE. I know Lisa might come off as rude, but her host family seemed so lazy. That little girl would not even sit up to practice singing, and she could not even do that! The boy missed nearly every ball in the batting cage! The dad seemed so snobby! The west coast family gets along becasue they do NOT interact with each other. I mean i know my family would get along perfectly if we didnt speak to each other, ha ha ha . Lisa is right those kids will not make it in teh real world. i do know that the son named Erik, he seemed a bit weird, BUT i loved Lisa's daughter. Well that is my opinion.

1. "RE: DO NOT LIKE SAMMANTHA"S FAMILY"
I thought Lisa brought out the rude in people.

Also thought it was awful of her to spend a bunch of that money on braces for the little girl. That was very rude.

How ridiculous! Those had better be solid gold braces. She might as well have given the money to charity in their name for all the good it did them.

Did we miss the conversation Lisa had with anyone concerning lack of dental insurance and how much work that little girl was going to need? I couldn't believe that was the first thing she spent the money on.

I thought I heard $10k for the braces for the girl. That's a lot of money for just braces. Can someone tell me if I misheard that amount?

Anyways, I think from the way Lisa allocated the $50k money versus Samantha, Lisa is a person who like to impose her view on others. She said Zach want a jacuzzi even though he didn't even talk to her about it. Samantha is the opposite of Lisa. She allocated money to Lisa's family based on what the family told her they need and want.

3. "Lisa brought it on herself"
I felt sick just watching the whole West Coast interaction. Lisa did come out of the gate crass and bossy but the people in that household showed absolutely zero ability to be tolerant. Samantha wasn't all that excited about where she had to spend her week, but she made the best of it and looked for the positive. She was the only positive one in her family, it appears.

I think Lisa just ASKED for it when she walked out to talk with the neighbors and started critisizing their homes ("5 of these could fit in my back yard" and "don't they have any other color paint in California?") You can't insult people like that and expect them to say "Wow! You are so right!"

I hope that Lisa watches the episode and makes the appropriate changes to her approach in dealing with people - especially her family.



Why are you looking at me? Stop looking at me. I said, STOP -- wait, what? OK, never mind.

4. "RE: DO NOT LIKE SAMMANTHA"S FAMILY"
I think if sams husband had even tried to interact with Lisa the whole outcome would have been different. I dont think they made her feel welcome at all and I think the friends on the boat were really catty. Maybe if they would have come down off their high horse long enough to realize Lisa was just really uncomfortable and made her feel more welcome she wouldnt have been so defensive to them with her attitude. If I had been in that situation I would have been rude too, but Ive never liked people who thought they were better than others either. As far as her telling them about her house she was trying to be funny but its hard to laugh when your mad of plastic unless of course your laughing at others. As far as him not liking Lisas decision about the money I laughed, how funny was it to finally see him uncomfortable. Thats just my opinion.

5. "RE: DO NOT LIKE SAMMANTHA"S FAMILY"
The Pilek family and their friends make me sick, and they give Southern California a bad name. Why they even agreed to do this show is beyond me. They made no effort at all to make Lisa feel welcome; they downright ignored her most of the time. They didn't even have the courtesy to bring a chair for her to the beach. The kids have zero personality, especially the son, and they are spoiled brats. A maid? Give me a break! Certainly these people are capable of doing their own dishes and laundry. I can't believe Zach was complaining about how mean Lisa was for making him load the dishwasher. Yeah, put the dirty dishes in the dishwasher, Lisa is so evil. What was even more unbelievable was that Jurek actually objected when Lisa said the kids were going to do simple chores. Even Samantha frowned when Lisa told her she had Zach fold the laundry. What parent doesn't want their kids doing that?! Lisa should have told them to spend the $50,000 on a reality check. The stupid kids were so ungrateful about getting a jacuzzi, and a slide for the pool. What kid wouldn't love that?! Get real.

The friends ARE snobs, despite their claims that they're not. There was nothing wrong with Lisa saying she could fit 5 of their houses in her backyard. That isn't criticism. It's a fact. When the neighbor guy asked how big her trailer is, now that was rude. The guests at the yacht party were despicable.

The Bowers family has so much more class. Sure, they joke around and insult each other, but you can tell they are kind warmhearted people. They actually hung out with Samantha and made her feel at home, and they got their butts out of bed in the wee hours of the morning to say goodbye. Jurek and the kids would even acknowledge Lisa when she was leaving. I would hang out with the Bowers over the Pileks any day.

6. "RE: DO NOT LIKE SAMMANTHA"S FAMILY"
Well personally I can't stand people like Lisa. Rude, crude,and obnoxious. She didn't make any attempts to be nice to people so why should they make all the effort. As for the boat incident, she keep referring to the way they looked, but there were some women there who were not exactly skinny with boob jobs (lisa's words) I think she shouldn't come into someones house and expect to make children do something they have no clue of doing (whether they should no it or not, it made her come off as bossy and a bit*h) I think her whole personality is rude, even her own freakin family didn't get up to say goodbye to her when she left, however, her son woke up and told sam goodbye and he loved her. Lisa, can you say Dysfunctional?

8. "RE: DO NOT LIKE SAMMANTHA"S FAMILY - Lisa did bring it on herself"
I agree that Lisa brought it on herself.

She was very rude, loud, and obnoxious. From the moment she met the Pileks, I think she rubbed them the wrong way. Seriously, look at what the Pileks are used to - Sam. She seems like a light, breezy, make the best out of a situation type of person. Lisa embarrassed the family that night at the restaurant drinking like that and carrying on the way she did. I wouldn't be welcoming either. I wouldn't want my kids around an alcohol monster like that.

Also, if the Puleks want their children to have maids and not do chores, that's their business. They work and pay a maid to do it, so be it. Who knows what Sam or Mr. Pulek went through growing up that they decided that their children are going to have it good while growing up.

Lisa is someone who tests how much people like her by being rude and obnoxious. I did not like how she interrupted Katie's singing lessons and called her whiny. Give the little girl a break, she's 12! And the way she was yelling at Sam's son while he was batting. She literally brow beated the kid! I would be rude to her also if I were him! She's just not a supportive person.

Point is, these kids are not used to being treated this way. They're used to having the gentle Samantha being really supportive. You saw in the first show how she was at his baseball game cheering him on - not yelling at him the way Lisa was.

What floored me was when Lisa's husband called Sam 'pumpkin'. Even Lisa's friends and family said there was huge difference without her around (more quiet, more calm, less yelling).

Lisa is someone without boundries. Samantha is someone is is on top of her game. She takes care of herself. She's not obnoxious, she makes her home beautiful (or you think Mr. Pulek picked out the furniture?), and she pushes her kids in the right direction. She's got the right idea. Lisa is everything opposite.

The friends, while Lisa was rude to them first, went a little overboard. I wonder how it would have turned out if Lisa was nice to them at first and complimented as opposed to deriding their neighborhood.

Yes, yes your are right she was rude, loud, and even obnoxious! This here is what we will call the “common ground”.


Seriously, look at what

Once again “common ground”.

>she did. I wouldn't be
>welcoming either. I wouldn't want
>my kids around an alcohol

Now wait one moment here. I lived with a couple of alcohol monsters when I was child. I don’t remember laughing like a fool when they were drunk leading to a beating.

>Also, if the Puleks want their
>children to have maids and
>not do chores, that's their

>so be it. Who knows
>what Sam or Mr. Pulek

I always thought that “having it good growing up” was having an stable home, loving parents who don’t hit you or sodomize you (lucky I don’t know much about that). "Sure I don't like Dad's hitting or the drinking but I'm alright because they don't make me wash the dishes".

>Lisa is someone who tests how

She was lying down trying to sing. God knows how much the father is shelling out for these lessons and the little girl is laying down. You can’t sing if you are laying down. You have to stand up and project your voice, project it, send it out to the world... I just realized how asinine this whole forum is. It’s fun to tear people down when they openly volunteer for these reality shows. But, here I am making fun of two young children.

LAST EDITED ON 08-11-04 AT 12:30PM (EST)

When I first heard about the show I just assumed it involved swinging married couples–we are talking about FOX network aren’t we? Then for some reason I sat down to watch. It could have be the burning desire to understand this show, or the fact that my female companion wouldn’t give me the ##### remote so I could watch Lou Dobb on CNN. Anyway my point is, what the ##### is wrong with that rich family! I have never seen kids so devoid of personality, energy, empathy, and if anything human emotions! But I’m not being fair, I’m a young man and I shouldn’t be judging these young children. So, I’ll judge the father.

The short nerd of man who was the father was nothing more then prick. His attitude towards the whole situation at hand was strange and foreign to most men who could shower after highschool gym class without wearing swimming trunks. A invited guest comes into my house and short of pissing on my rug, they can get away with almost anything. I don’t have to like it but sure hell I’m going to be a good host. I’m not going to be some obnoxious little man, bitching about the situation and let my children get away with exhibiting total disrespect towards my guest in my house.

What type of parent doesn’t expect their kids to do the dishes or move folded clothing from point A to point B? And how in the hell are you suppose to sing laying on the couch? And what father wouldn’t smack his son in the back of the head if he didn’t give up his chair to an over weight women? I don’t care about the rude neighbours with their breast implants or their simple socialite views, your going to meet rude ##### in this world. And no it doesn’t matter that the over weight women was rude and somewhat crass. All of that doesn’t even factor into the general idea of manners or polite social behaviour towards a guest in your house. And that rich family was devoid of even that one basic trait, genral manners. I've have always thought that manners in any form would be consider an asset for any social scene.

I don't watch much TV, but man! I think this is a really interesting show.

Lisa was nasty right off the plane. Here is the guy standing there, holding a sheet with her name on it and she ignores him? And then the "Come closer and I'll bite you." What's up with that? I too would immediately go cold towards this person.

Having said that, having money does not equal having class. Had Mr. Pilek been in possession of any class Lisa's behavior would have made no difference regarding his own level of courtesy-- which was completely non-existent in this man.

The CA people were right though: Lisa seems very insecure... even in her own house-- thus, the relationships defined by teasing-- which is really a form of aggression. Lisa complained of the Pilek family not doing things together, but Lisa's own relationships are not "together" in that they seemed based on lots of passive-aggressive put-downs.

For all Lisa's bluster, there was no real confident core. Had her facade been more than that SHE would have taken the initiative as hostess on the boat to warmly greet people-- she didn't do it off the plane, she didn't do it at the party. She *acts* like she "has balls" but she doesn't really.

Can't wait for the next one!

13. "RE: DO NOT LIKE SAMMANTHA"S FAMILY"
The California neighbor's comment about the trailor was pretty rude, I hope he was embarrassed when he saw the show.

Otherwise, I think Lisa brought most of the bad treatment on herself. I suspect maybe the party guests were edited to look more snobby as an example of "class differences"; maybe it was partially reacting to Lisa's behavior. I also think Jurek was a pretty poor host, but I bet that is just his way. When he entertains with his sociable wife Sam she does all the interacting and he does as he did on the show, stands aside and freshens people's drinks. It didn't work with Lisa as the co-host. Contrast the way Samantha really bonded with the guests at the other party. She got right in there, passing out food, sitting in the midst of them. She didn't stand aside waiting for the husband to do for her. Sam and Lisa just had different social skills.

I thought the comments the Bower's neighbors made about Lisa were telling.

Contrast also with the way Sam treated the Bower kids and the way Lisa treated the Pilek kids. I thought it was really sweet the way Sam sought to do something important for Eric. But when he wanted a hamburger she didn't insist repeatedly that he try something different. Lisa didn't seem to be aware of when to let up on the kids.

With the allocation of the prize money, again, Sam seemed more in tune with what would be important to the Bowers, like she really paid attention to them. I think she came off the best by far of all the characters on this show.

Did anyone else think that something just didn't add up? If Samantha is so nice and great, why is everyone around her so awful? Her spouse, her children, her friends were all awful...Is this just TV editing, or was Samantha acting nicer than she normally would? I did notice that she made some comment about their car and that a 500 dollar a month payment was no big deal. She seemed materialistic at first, but in the second episode she came off as some sort of saint. But her kids don't seem like they have been raised by that same saint... and her friends ugh,. They just don't seem like friends that she would have...if she was that nice mom trying to inspire those kids, like the thing with the boy meeting the chef.
Anyone else feel this way?

18. "RE: DO NOT LIKE SAMMANTHA"S FAMILY"
I believe that there was a lot of editing to make Sam look great and Lisa look bad... not to say they don't both have good and bad qualities. Creating the drama sure made us want to tune in to part 2, right?

I have friends that were on another TV reality show as a family and they were extremely disappointed with the misrepresentation the network showed of them. There was no drama in their show so the producers created it in their editing.

One thing I took away from this episode is that Sam's 'positive thinking' really affected Lisa's family, especially the kids. The 'humor' they use is really pain in disguise. Remember LIsa's husband saying to Lisa when she returned that all she was telling was the bad stuff? I hope they can use that as an incentive to encourage each other to enjoy life.

Thats my 2 cents!

I could not stand Lisa and thought that she was loud trash! She rubbed the family the wrong way when she walked through the door and constantly had mean things to say about Samantha's children. When she was out to dinner with them "throwing back the saki" she had no right asking the little girl did she fell resentful towards the father/son relationship..A lot of people are also talking about how the father treated her, guess what he was nice to her until that drunken dinner! These people have to live in this town and prob. go to that restaurant quite often and the way that she acted was mortifing. She was screaming at the boy in the batting cage, she was yelling at the the girl during singing lessons! The woman is ignorant. So what Samantha doesn't make her kids wash dishes some people don't! Lisa doesn't make her kids eat healthy food (we've never had a salad in this house), and Samantha didn't yell at them about it. The woman burned bridges early on and that is why she was treated poorly by the neighbors and the husband where as Samantha has class and personility. As for those of you who said Samantha's friends were mean common sense would tell you that after the morning they had the conversation with her in the front lawn, they all went back to the other neighbors and told them the ignorant things that she said. I am sure these people already had a negative view of her when they got to the party. She messed up early on and never recovered. As for the way the money was spent again Lisa dropped the ball $10,000 for braces! A slide and a jacuzzi that these kids did not express they wanted! This is stuff that she and her family wanted...she was not paying attention the whole week just making rude comments and whined about how rich kids are not made to do chores....and at the end of the episode I saw Samantha's daughter folding laundry did anyone else catch that?

I had to register just to get me two cents in here.

I thought the whole tone for each mom's visit was set by the dads. Lisa's husband talked with the kids and told them even if she weighted 300 lbs, they had to basically be nice - just what most parents should do when facing something new with kids. Sam's husband seemed to indicate early that whatever this new mom wanted to do, he was not going to see any changes take place in his home.

My thoughts were that Lisa and family wanted to try the Trade Spouse game and only Sam wanted to on the other end - her husband was just humoring her and had no intention of buying in.

All that said, Lisa has some volume problems, but I have a Lisa type for a good friend, and her basic good heart lets you ignore all the rest.

yah right. Getting the poor girl braces, when no one even talked about her needing braces???!!! That's the equivalent of Samantha sending Lisa's daughter to fat camp. OBNOXIOUS!!!

You are probably just like Lisa. Anyone with one eye can see that not only did she come off as rude, she just WAS plain rude and a reverse snob! She was so uncomfortable with herself and where she came from she totally was being a Bi@#h before anyone had a chance to be anything but to her. If you watched, she was the one always on the offensive as soon as she met anyone, "oh, these houses could all fit in my backyard"-(didn't look like it to me). That is the equivilant of Samantha saying to Lisa's family "oh, this house is so tiny, it could fit in my bathroom". See what I'm saying. As far as on the boat, you could tell she was seething with self-loathing and jealousy the minute she saw everyone walk on, saying their perfect and snobby. Well, I noticed two other rotund women on the boat, and they were getting along just fine and dandy. LISA's personality is just SCREWED UP! Her own family and friends could barely utter a kind word about her!!!! Her kids wanted the other mom to stay and didn't seem to miss Lisa at all. She was abrasive and abusive and has no idea what the words positive reinforcement mean. No wonder the kids did not respond well to her. She was downright mean and menacing and annoying.!

ok the west coast folks gave a great state a bad name. The neighbor was a freak, which prescription drug was she on? Her mannerisms said it all " I 'm high on the hot new drug of the week". All the stepford wives were completely unfriendly and big Lisa really needs to calm down.

Listen. Lisa if you can hear me now, let me tell you this.
I saw the episode of the California lady, and the things you went through. I am a pretty blonde and look sort of like those girls. But let me tell you something. What they said about "I cant blame her for being self conscious." Was very rude, and snotty. Just know that not all beautiful girls are mean. I wish I could slap that woman. Listen, you are pretty. No one said that in the show. You have curly brown hair and your eyes are azure colored, and have a hint of green. You are model pretty. The girls on the boat, had better watch it. They could get in a plane wreck and mess up their features. I have learned in life to be kind to others, through being a christian, and other things. I feel for you. I just wanted you to see that I am pretty but I am not like those girls, I wish you could have visited my house. I am 19, we would have loved you. Its just that... in life you get a bad pickle once in awhile. That was the californian family.

God Bless, and have a good day. -Sweet Blonde girl
