And thirdly, I have no idea how Lauri can "raise" her kids like that! Letting her daughter live in their house just for staying in college? Who refuses to pay water bills? And leaves dogshit all over the floor?
Yet another example - they are shitty mothers for the most part as well - who raises children to be this irresponsible?
Your question - Who raises children to be this irresponsible? The answer, at least MY answer is, Irresonible parents - that's who.
If my memory serves me correctly, wasn't it Whori who told Ashley how she, not Ashley, "forgot" to pay the water bill during the Hawaii vacation?
First of all, utility companies DO NOT arbitrarily shut off water or utilities unless the bill is dangerously late and, as a last resort they send out a 10 day pay or shut off notice. Given Whori's public record account how she pays many, many things late, if at all, I believe it was Whori who didn't pay the bill. The public record site at the Orange County court house also reports how Whori didn't pay her homeowner's dues on more than one occassion and she had tax liens as well.
Kid's learn by example and it is the parents responsibility to prepare their child to make the transition to living on their own by budgeting their money, etc. One thing I give Vicki credit for is she gave her kids a great head start on what awaited them in terms of financial responsibilities.
Kid's need to learn from someone how to pay their bills, but none of Whori's kids were taught those life lessons, instead they learned to be irresponsible by just observing their mom! Whori was too irresponsible with her own finances and too busy hunting down her sugar daddies rather than parent her kids or prepare them to cope with the issues of life and money management. Maybe Whori was never taught by her parents but at age 48 wouldn't one think you would learn something by then especially if you keep getting those nasty little bill reminders every month? Now there is a wake up call for ya.
It was also reported that although Whori put on a good show for the cameras during the cat shit episode, she didn't keep a clean home either. But now that she likely has a full time housekeeper after she hit the Pot'O Gold she doesn't need to worry about that any longer. One last thing according to various reports, Ashley is NOT enrolled in college either.
Case in Point: The quote below is taken from Ashley's updated MESpace:As of right now, I dont have a plan...I just want to do the next good thing for me.
Without a plan in sight or any goal to strive for how does one succeed in life? I hope I am wrong but it appears to me we are seeing a mini Whori in the making.
