“You'd think that after 12 seasons, nothing would surprise me, but I did a show last fall that really did. It centered around a woman, her son and his wife. They were relentless in how they bickered with each other. The accusations by the woman toward her daughter-in-law were outrageous. One of the most outrageous accusations was that her daughter-in-law had five aliases, which was proven false by a private investigator that I hired. She also accused her daughter-in-law of being involved in the death of another son. Her anger and mistrust toward her son and daughter-in-law are so great that she has yet to meet the couple's children. How could you intentionally make the choice not to see your grandchildren? That surprised and shocked me.”
