    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.

    Yes I was thinking the same thing. I think the reason he looked like he had "changed" (from afar) was because this was a much more controlled environment. He was able to be coached and rehearse his answers. As opposed to say in the house where he was in a natural environment and unable to control himself.

    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.

    My major peeve with the whole season was how much they repeat previous scenes there was probably only like 10 mins of new content each week.

    I picked up that Michelle seemed depressed right from the start of the series and found it interesting others disagreed.

    I wonder why the producers cut the PND parts out. Any reason though, would be not good enough to me. Im glad she got to write that article and get it out there.

    I secretly hope that once she is well again that her and Jason will get back together.

    I thought right from the start that her problem was not the marriage but motherhood. I figured some PND was at play. I'm certain the reason she had so much fun with Ryan was not because she was away from Jason but because she was away from the children and the stresses that come with them. I think I mentioned it a few times. I thought it was a pretty obvious call.

    Totally. Plus some of the telltale things she said that the editors obviously allowed us to see, were a dead giveaway for me and i got the impression she is at home a lot for long hours, just her and the kids and not going somewhere like a playgroup etc to get out of the house.
    I have seen a couple of people question why she would go on the show given the PND then.
    Maybe that was why the producers left it out, so the public wouldn't blast her for doing the show. Or blast the production crew for casting her.

    I agree.
    Although I only watched a few episodes ( my dh was hooked) every time I saw her I said she has pnd because I could see so much of me in her. I think she enjoyed her time away so she could be herself and not just "mum".

    And in the article it mentions that when they fell pregnant with their first, they were "poor". I think that might go a long way to explain why Jason was so hellbent on being such a good provider and working so much. He may have felt a touch of failure about not having everything sorted for the baby to come along. Anxiety about not being a good provider is a very real thing for a lot of men.

    I think she also enjoyed her time away as she wasn't constantly stressing about being a "perfect" mother, as her babies weren't with her.
