This young woman lacks class. I actually enjoyed her show initially because I could identify with her insecurities and admire her determination to live her best life. Now I see is not the best kind of role model for young girls. Her language is vulgar at times and some things in her life should remain private. I do wish Whitney well but I'm no longer a viewer.

This title has:

Too much swearing

This season Whitney seems hyper, manic and acting like a puberty crazy teenage girl! I loved the show for a long time but I'm afraid I've lost my patience (and respect!! )for Whitney and her immaturity and drama. Poor Babs and Glenn....they must be so frustrated! Time to grow up Whitney. No longer a fan.
