I got the impression after last weeks episode that Michelle had said, oh as long as we try everything we have learnt we will be fine etc that she was just saying those things to keep the peace until after the camera's stopped rolling.
She didn't want to break up with Jason on tv.
I heard the same thing, how Michelle mentioned briefly that she struggled after the children were born and should have sought help, before Edwina interjected with something like coming on the show was getting help.
We had picked up earlier on that it seemed she was depressed in the home shots at the start of the series.
I don't believe Brad has changed yet. I hope that he has got help and continues to receive help if so, for his and Tallena's sake. I think a lot of what he said was just to try and get the public off his back as obviously some months had passed since the filming and they said they had seen the show, Jackie had said her regret was the backlash they had seen, no doubt on media etc, so Brad would have seen the news articles saying he appeaes to be emotionally abusive and controlling before he went on the reunion.
The look Brad gave Tallena when Tim and Jackie were laughing about the spa and Tim said something along the lines of oh Tallena loved it, and then Tallena was laughing too, said a lot.
The body language off those two, Brad and Tallena, was telling too.
Next year when this program is on I'm going to stay out of threads like this. It was a bit disappointing to read spoilers before watching each episode. Oh well, at least I know for next time
Interesting comments i just stumbled across
It was badly managed from start to finish so they couldn't be avoided.
Channel Seven didn't seem to give two hoots about the show.
Aired on a Tuesday night, then off for two weeks, different time slots, then the final on a Monday when every other show was aired on a Tuesday.
I could never keep up and had to catch up online more than anything.
I find that a total lack of respect for viewers so I lost my care factor pretty early on.
I had an hour while DD slept yesterday so I caught up.
Brad looked as agitated as ever and he seemed to be drawing on some coaching about the right response to have when they others accused him of being controlling because his mouth was saying one thing and his body language another.
Tallena could not answer a question from the host without looking at Brad while answering, it wasn't natural, I thought she'd give herself whiplash at one point. I don't think anyone else really bought their responses either.
I do not see that marriage going the distance.
I think he'll snap, his ego won't take the criticism he's getting off the net.
I don't have free-to-air telly so I always caught up online so just avoided this thread til I watched.
I didn't run into too many spoilers but I don't really follow anything on Facebook or go to any websites that talk about this sort of stuff. No gossip mags or anything either.
