This creature was horrific. She thinks she is rich but look at her tacky house. Anyone here in Cali would laugh at her. Her home is the price of a one bedroom condo here! Wife Swap went way to far this time. The other family has my total respect for trying to be self sufficient! I feel so bad that they had to have that creature in their home. Oh, and she's only 30??? She has a really horrible plastic surgeon!

My guess is that Shannon Nicole grew up in an unhappy home. Her parents most likely didn’t have much money or time to bestow on her. She probably grew up thinking that people looked down on her and considered her low class. I suspect that her and her husband are heavily in debt.

Typical South Jersey Italian. Shannon Nicole is a trashy, disrespectful waste of a woman. How dare she trash that man. She claimed to have "class" on the show. I found this the most amusing. She wouldn't know class if it slapped her in the face (which that man should have!). That man had more class and was obviously better educated that she will ever be. Useless housewife. As a parent, I am appalled at her constant disrespect to those girls' father and their lifestyle right in front of them. I would spit on her if I could!

Just my opionion, but I think that one of the reasons that people are so appalled and upset by this woman is because she eipitomizes the type of entitled, screw the little people attitude that those so called Wall Street titans possess. The ones who are responsible for putting the country in such a horrible financial mess. Imagine HER on Wall Street. Greedy sociopath. When she was shown applying her makeup, the first thought that entered my mind was that this is a drag queen getting ready for a show. It must be hard being only 33 years old, and looking as though you are 55.

I've read articles where she is proclaiming that she is enjoying the spotlight! This woman either has no conscience, or she is completely delusional. I wish that the media would pick up on this story;have general discussions on how this woman represents the fall of Western Civilization. How people like her are ruining this country. She does not have to be invited. Just let the country at large vent.

Maybe she has to tell herself that she is attractive to keep from slitting her wrist.

I agree with everyone here on almost every comment. But I do want to say that for the less fortunate family who takes baths in the same bath water just to conserve, well, that's all wrong where children are involved.

It is just an observation, but generally people who use the word “classy” to describe something, especially themselves, often are “low class.”

I applaud the Padovan-Hickmans for their desire to live a simple and eco-friendly life. However, I do think that the sharing of bathwater is a bit unhygienic.

I suggest they look into taking a "navy shower": only use water to get wet and to rinse off. Another option they could consider is diverting the greywater to a holding tank and using it to irrigate their land.

I cannot believe that people like Shannon really exist in the world. "cartoon character" is dead on -- she reminds you of cruella deville. ugh, what a mess that woman is. I feel bad those nice people had that wretched woman in their home. Why do trashy people think they're beautiful and have good taste. She's got tacky and clueless written all over her. Sad those animals had to die to be draped over such a vile piece of garbage. If there's any justice in the world one of her implants will get infected and she'll become disfigured. Her kids don't stand a chance of being decent human beings.
why don't yall be nice you ever heard the saying what goes around comes around

Shannon Nicole Burroughs should be embarrassed of her behavior. However, she has done a public service in the following ways:
1. She made mildly mean people think better of themselves.
2. She made people aware of what happens when you wear too much fur.(PETA should hire her)
3. She made Pennsylvanians glad that they aren’t from Jersey.
4. She potentially scared some women out of having unnecessary plastic surgery.
5. She provided a model example for the type of women men should avoid.

She's probably so heavily into debt that she needed that 20k. She keeps claiming that the producers encouraged her to say those things. I guess 20k is what her personal integrity and personal honor are worth.

There is NO WAY that she is in her 30's. She looks like she was ridden hard & put away wet. I am 34 & she could pass as my mother....age wise that is..NOT LOOKS! thank god! I feel very fortunate that she is not my mother. I would be horrified if I had to introduce her as such. Her poor kids. And her home....Flashback to 1984? Her chandelier was horribly tacky & her pink walls looked trailor park. Does she really think she appears well off? She must not get out often. She would be the laughing stock of my neighborhood.

I couldn't agree with you more. Just because she has "money" doesn't give her the right to treat the Hickman family or any other person like dirt. Even more because of the economy no one out there wants to hear how much she claims to have. Please lady get over yourself. I just wish she would have tried to knock me down to the couch, I show her how we roll in Cali!
