Only those of us here who read your post, and others who saw it from the original board, knew. Most of DP's viewers who follow this family had no idea. So while it's old news to you, it was unknown to most.This has become unwatchable. I already know what's happening.
As mentioned months before, it was posted that she is in Rehab, paid for by Dr. Phoney.
Most comprehensive rehab for severe addicts like Alex are for at least 90 days, along with after-care, like living in a sober house.Now, he decides to start airing this train wreck... Phoney is going to act like alex just went into rehab, when we all know she has been in there since around Thanksgiving.**News Flash, she's still in there.
Wonder if Erin has been warned to keep the news private from now on, or face a civil lawsuit for failure to comply with her contract with DP's show?
Yeah, looks like Nina really has DP's number.Even though i can't stand the family, & am siding with Nina on Dr. Phoney.
You've answered your own question...there will never be enough profit (viewers) for DP. Alex is a ratings cow to be milked as often as possible. Erin was doing her part in the 'set-up' following Alex at her worst to show that she has hit bottom in most peoples' eyes, and has no other choice but rehab. Assuming this wasn't all staged for effect.Seriously, if he cared soooo much for her & her family, why couldn't he just leave well enough alone, pay for the rehab ( he already made enough money off of airing her "life").
Now, he & Erin have a bunch of before rehab videos ---how sick can they get shoving cameras in her face before???? For t.v. profit?
And he is going to lie and make it look like she is waffling on whether or not to go, when she is already there & has been.
Besides, I'd bet that the 'Alex on the streets' video was shot earlier in Nov. before Thanksgiving, and edited for use in the story yet to be aired. Also would bet that DP is going to milk his favorite ratings cow for at least 3-4 episodes before this season ends. And depending on where they want to take this drama, if Alex escapes rehab and wanders the streets of the nearest Texas city/town, we could see a lot more chasing of Alex and convincing her to return.
You may be interested to learn that there are already many comments on this show on DP's message board. You probably won't be surprised to see that many people who have commented agree with you completely -- and recognize this for what it is -- a scandalously shameful ratings drama, and not about saving Alex.Leave the skank alone already. She is there. 90 o/o or more of people that have gone to treatment relapse.
Enough !! I'm sick of seeing her ugly face and her mothers (Erin) every time i turn the channel.
Maybe it's all of the lies by DP, i don't know. Just sick of it already. Move on to another family to destroy. Oh, I mean help.
