Holes and Gaps – Starting Over, 02-01-05 By: Cori Linder clinder@realityshack.com Our past often shapes our identity.

Removing these glasses lets us truly see ourselves so that we can change our future.

The Queens of Denial – Starting Over, 01-31-05

by LauraBelle Every time they show the women of Starting Over going to church services, it always brings a peacefulness to the show, both in spirituality and making the house seem even more like home. Even when PJ was searching for a new faith, only to end up staying with her original Church of the Latter Day Saints, it was fascinating to watch all the different faiths presented, and in every single one, there was a sense of peacefulness. When the show starts out today [...]

Episode 4 – You Are The Weakest Link, Good – Bye

Since none of the celebrities made their targets last week, the panel is looking for answers. ANT mentions that the celebs aren’t putting in quite a stellar performance at Fit Camp. Daniel doesn’t participate due to his back issues. They say Judge Mablean gives a lot in the exercising process but gets annoyed at herself and others. Harvey feels the answer is this: **** the celebs are too used to being pampered. They’re laaaaaazy. ***** Perhaps, VH-1 should consider my idea to prove this. Have [...]

Episode 2 – Butt Crack Attack

In this episode we learn how the teams got their names. Daniel’s team (Biz Markie, Mia Tyler and Joe G.) are the Eastsiders because they all come from the East Coast originally. The other team is called “Ralphie’s Angels” ‘cuz it’s three ladies and Ralphie May. The ladies are, of course, Kim Coles, Wendy “The Snapple Lady” Kaufmann and Judge Mablean. We also know that the Eastsiders’ game plan is to engage in psychological warfare, under the auspices of their Baldwin Brother, Daniel. Mablean was [...]

The B Word – Starting Over, 01-28-05

by LauraBelle We all have excuses. We may think we have extenuating circumstances, but in the end run, it doesn’t matter, and excuse is an excuse. I can say I have good excuses for why I’m just now, on Saturday night, typing up Friday’s review, but the truth is, it’s by choice. I chose to sleep last night. Good choice for me, but still my choice. Instead of saying I have an excuse, perhaps we should say, I made a choice. Rhonda pulls Cassie out [...]

Knockin' Down Those Walls – Starting Over, 01-27-05

by LauraBelle When we want to keep others at bay, we all put walls up. Sometimes it is one thick iron-clad wall that need to be knocked down by a bulldozer, sometimes it’s several thin layers that need to be peeled away. What brings everyone to the Starting Over house is needing to know what it was that put up those walls. Rhonda meets with Cassie just to be sure she is on solid ground for moving ahead and contacting the birth parents. The old [...]

Giving and Receiving – Starting Over, 01-26-05

by LauraBelle Giving and receiving is such a multi-faceted topic to broach. It’s one we drill into our children’s morals, such as,”It’s better to give than to receive.” Yet, even as adults there are still more facets to it that we need to learn. Once we realize giving and receiving isn’t just with material things, but also thoughts, ideas and emotions, it changes all of our pre-conceived notions. Renee starts her day calling her friend, Neely, to let her know she is donating her time [...]

After Todd’s departure, Danny and the rest of the Net Worth team return to the suite. Smiles and open arms embrace Danny, but based on candidates’ hypocritical remarks moments earlier, we know what they’re really thinking. When Danny remarks that his team and [...]
