i watched wife swap once, there were two totally family's, one very rich and the other poor.
the poor family made the woman feel accepted straight away, you could tell she was uncomfortable in their home but it didn't go to bad.
but the rich family made the other woman feel like dirt, they held party's and all the female friends said horrible things to her, she ended up crying a lot of the time and i thought it was discusting, there's no excuse to treat someone like that, whether you have money or not, we are all the same...i have no respect for shows like that, it's nasty.
i guess it hurt even more because my mum is poor, i help her when ever i can but she gets the same treatment from her mother in law all the time, nan will show mum photo's of her friends houses and talk about all the stuff she can buy and it makes my mum feel so bad especially because she can hardly afford to pay her bills...iv'e pretty much disowned my nan because of this behavior yet mum still tolerates her
i used to be poor too and ni know how bad it can make you feel when people with money look down on you.
i guess some episodes may not have been so bad but after the one i saw i never watched it again.
why go out of your way to make someone feel bad? i can never understand that, it's much more rewarding to make someone happy.
i'll get off my soapbox now lol...sore subject for me
