BW readers, we asked what the mom wanted for herself. She said she liked scented candles.
Mind you we are facing furloughs and layoffs.
The Gold Dust Woman in JRE's life is something else to demand 18K a month and doesn't even try to work. She is selfish and lazy.
I call her that based on this song by Fleetwood Mac:
Poverty will always tug at my heart strings. I will not understand why John got involved with such a low class (in spirit) woman and put his family through the tabloids. This woman is capable of working and chooses not to. She is not the working poor when she demands $2100 for babysitting expenses and doesn't try to work.
