wasn't she planning on Liam attending her old school in BH? Wouldn't Malibu be kind of far from that?

That little Stella melts my heart. What a sweetheart!

Tori pronounces the word "manufacturer" in a very strange way. It's distracting.

There is no way that they are planning to stay in that house full time for an extended period of time. If it is really in Malibu, the drive to anywhere that they need or want to go is going to drive them crazy, for one thing. Their friends are going to grow tired of the long drive out to see them. Malibu isn't close to anything except the ocean. And, like others have said, the size of the house is not going to work for their needs if they are going to continue to produce this and other shows while living there. Not to mention that the store in Sherman Oaks is probably a good 45-60 minutes away without heavy traffic.

While watching this last episode, I truly saw the low self-esteem pouring out of Tori. It has always been there, of course, but I truly feel for her, and can relate to her to a point. She doesn't want Dean there because she loves him, but because she really doesn't want to ever be alone -- and that is why she is probably going to want to continue to have more children. And Mr. Hannah Jane asked why she likes all the gays around all the time and I truly believe it is because they don't threaten her, they look up to her, they make her feel good about herself. I know a few women who surround themselves primarily with gays and they all have that low self-esteem quality. One other thing I realized last night.... when I first started watching several seasons ago, she had girlfriends on regularly as well as her gays. Her girlfriends are NEVER on anymore. Does she even really see them anymore? A married woman with two small children should want to be with other married women with small children. I just can't fathom why Mehran still sleeps over in her bed (no wonder he is still single) and the Guncles are great, but now that they have a family of their own, they should have other things to do. I have two small kids and I never have time for much socialization.

Tori and Dean are as hands-on as they can be, but seriously, Tori does more than I do on a weekly basis and I have a full time job out of the home. This show does an excellent job of editing the idea that she spends tons of time with her kids but I just don't buy it.

I was imagining the kids watching this back when they get older. What is Liam going to think when he sees that mommy wanted another daughter and all the coddling with Stella during the tea party. The scene with Liam seemed more manufactured to me. I get the feeling the Tori wants nothing more than tea parties with her daughters and dress-up parties and all of that. Maybe it was just the way it was all edited but she came thisclose to saying that Stella was her favorite and I felt bad for Liam.

Finally, I was very surprised to see so much footage of newborn Hattie. I enjoy watching this show, but to hear them complain so much about privacy and paparazzi when they don't want the attention and then they share so much of personal moments like that, I really can't feel sorry for them. I have had two children and two c-sections. The last thing I wanted was to be videotaped for the world to see. Tori and Candy being happy is nice to see, but all of it just reeks so much of "look at me" when I would have just had a quick clip of "It's a girl" and then seeing them bring Hattie home.

All of this to say: I hope it is not another 1.5 years until the next season starts. We need more Patsy in the new episodes. Less Mehran, please.

I felt myself getting teary when Hattie was born.

I did too. This episode finally melted my heart with regards to Tori. I always watched this show despite her, not because of her. But when I saw her lower lip shaking with emotion as her daughter was being born, she finally won me over. I can't believe I saw Hattie actually being born, and I soaked up all that newborn footage. It is kind of odd the camera crew was there for the birth and Candy wasn't, since Patsy could have stayed with the kids. Oh well, I couldn't even go one paragraph without critiquing.

I agree that house must have four bedrooms and Patsy is in one. But that probably means the kids will be sharing a room for a year (I think that's how long baby nurse Patsy stays). As for all that growing old in this house stuff, I'll believe it when I see it. But as long as they stay at three kids, I bet each kid could have their own room. Even if not, by the time Hattie's out of her crib, I bet she and Stella will be sharing and Liam will have his own room.

Why did Tori get foot long extensions before giving birth? Wasn't her hair much shorter in last week's episode? I'm glad they highlighted having a donation baby shower. That's a lovely idea, and I would hope most mothers of means do this.

Was she kidding when she said Stella was just like her because Stella doesn't want to talk about emotions? Tori does nothing BUT yak about her emotions. If she feels it, everybody hears about it.

Stella is precious (especially when she was holding her new sister) but she certainly knows how to work her Daddy. She said that Liam was mean to her when he was throwing the fit about the room and Dean got sucked right into it. Dean should have told her that Liam's 'tude wasn't really about her and that Liam was really mad at their parents. Dean seems to have a bit of a temper himself so that apple didn't fall far from the tree.

I got a little ticked myself at the end when Tori said they owe Liam a brother and then they'll have an even amount of kids. Tori, Liam already has a brother and you already have an even number of kids! This reminds me of a few episodes ago when Dean said,"I'm about to have a third kid!" Poor Jack! I wonder where he's going to sleep in the new house.

I like the idea of having a shower to give to charity but no woman in her right mind is going to throw a shower (for herself or anybody else) when she's that close to her due date.

The house is a normal size for a normal family, but clearly they could have afforded more and it would have made sense to not make kids who haven't had to share a room start sharing if you don't have to do that.

I think the deal is really that for psychological reasons, they need to keep moving into new places. The novelty of a move makes Dean, the adrenaline junkie, feel like he has something exciting happening. And it's appealing to Tori because moving means that people are paying attention to her and gives her an excuse to make Dean spend time with her and the family. I don't think they think seriously enough about what kind of house they are moving to both because they are not exceedingly practical people and because I think they know on some level that they'll move somewhere else soon.

First of all, the viewers were of course thrown for a loop because they didn't ever mention a new house/downsizing, etc, until right before they did it--


They've been talking about wanting to have more land for their animals for quite some time. It didn't surprise me at all that they've been looking for a house. It's been mentioned but they didn't focus on it as they have in the past.

If it is really in Malibu, the drive to anywhere that they need or want to go is going to drive them crazy, for one thing.


People live in Malibu and commute from there all the time. For most of them, the downside of having to drive a lot is offset by the advantages of living in Malibu. As for their friends coming to visit them, I would bet that for every friend who doesn't want to drive out to Malibu, there will be at least two friends that will be happy not to have to drive to the Valley.

I got a little ticked myself at the end when Tori said they owe Liam a brother and then they'll have an even amount of kids. Tori, Liam already has a brother and you already have an even number of kids! This reminds me of a few episodes ago when Dean said,"I'm about to have a third kid!" Poor Jack! I wonder where he's going to sleep in the new house.


I'm no more offended by the fact that they don't mention Jack than I am by the fact that I can count on one finger the number of times that Randy has been seen or mentioned on the show. Tori continually talks about bringing the family together but never mentions her brother. He was there when she and Dean renewed their vows, so I don't think there's bad blood between them. Maybe both Jack and Randy would rather maintain their privacy. It doesn't mean that Tori and Dean are slighting them or "forgetting them."

Not true. I have family that lives in Malibu and not all Malibu homes are right on the beach or near the beach. There are plenty of businesses in and around Malibu. It is a thriving community with so many little stores, shops and restaurants. Malibu isn't just about the coast. From what I have seen in some local magazines, Tori and Dean visit Santa Monica a lot and are photographed out and about in Malibu with the kids, including Dean's son from his first marriage.

People live in Malibu and commute from there all the time.

Very true.

Those cheek implants Tony got are ridiculous. They look like those alien add ons Lady Gaga was sporting for a while.

I loved how Joan was joking about all the sexual harassment stuff until the instructor mentioned she was liable for what her employees did. Once it was her $ on the line, she got serious tout de suite.

Re: the move to Malibu. "Location, location, location." Tori and Dean's new home is in Point Dume - an extremely desirable part of Malibu with a tight neighborhood feel. Interestingly, this is where the Sheen and Penn boys grew up, as well as Rob Lowe (who was less privileged than his starry friends). It is an excellent place to raise children if you want them to have a strong sense of community and neighborhood. Think weekly neighborhood bonfires and beach cookouts, private beach access. I do know the home they bought, and it is small for their standard of living. My guess is that they will renovate and build their perfect space. There are many tear downs and renos in the neighborhood. As for the commute to LA proper and BH, I am guessing they will have a pied a terre in that area as well.

And a criminal record? Sorry, the names mentioned all have that in common besides being actors.

Some doctors say to take 6 weeks, and Tori said in an interview I read yesterday (maybe US Weekly?) that her doctor told her to wait 6 weeks and she ignored him. However, my doctor told me I didn't have to wait and to do it when I felt like it, whether that be before or after the 6 week mark. The REALLY unusual thing is that she actually ovulated four weeks after giving birth. That must be really rare, though not impossible.

Did anyone read the story in the Star about Dean ready to bolt? I'm not shocked at that, I was more shocked that she's worth 15 mil. Just sayin...I called it 100 pages back. I know, it's the Star. :) She's ALMOST as draining as Bethanny. Who gets the petting zoo?

I couldn't sleep, and there was a mini marathon of the most recent season of this on. I used to like this show, so I don't know if it was irritation that it was 3:30 am and I was stuck watching tv instead of sleeping or what, but it seemed to really be... lacking. After 3 episodes about Tori being pregnant and freaking out over the press and not wanting to say anything, I chose to read. Tori, Dean... it's hard for me to feel bad about the "paparazzi" saying you are pregnant when a)you look obviously pregnant and b)you have your own camera crew following you around and you are talking nonstop about being pregnant. In public, at home, on walks with your goat and husband, on the phone... I understand waiting the first trimester out, but geeze louse. They must have been scraping with storylines or something.

On a positive note, Liam and Stella are freaking cute, I loved seeing Patsy again, and as she says, Tori and Dean make good babies. I don't even mind Tori and Dean, but the repeated storylines about how the paparazzi are always following them and how will they keep things secret gets very old very quick.

Also, I found it weird that Dean asked Candy for advise about what child behave like at certain ages. Nothing wrong with asking your mother in law for advice, but it was something about how Liam is in his pouty terrible two phase and is it normal and do the grow out of it- I know Jack isn't mentioned often, and I am glad he is kept out of their show but come on, Dean. You already have had a child who is probably around 15 or so now? You know what terrible two's are like. Don't act so surprised when Candy says your children may not be perfect angels.
