I love this show i think its so funny and really cute i love everyone for there own different reasons and they are all so very funny in there own ways. The only thing i didnt like was around the end when Barbara Jean lost all her weight and became skinny shes still funny but shes mean now, shes a Bitch and i hate to say it like that but its true Barbara Jean was never mean she was very funny and ditzy she still is ditzy just not as much she's definitely different now I really really loved the old her..
