Why the hell does Joel allow Bonnie to treat him like a child? Telling him what he can and cannot eat. Then she goes out to lunch with Ellie of course. Probably could have edited that part out. As far as the new clothing line? I see Amish women dress better than that. I wonder how much money they paid those models to praise those ugly pieces.

BonBon is looking OLD! She sorta could pass for 50 years old these days.

Also, do non-Mormons buy their weird Mormon Bollie clothes??? Those outfits are incredibly FUGLY!

I’m literally laughing out loud while I’m home alone. Those Bollie outfits are the most ugly, not flattering and most ridiculous clothes I’ve ever seen! Like all of it. Not body shaming anyone but the plus size model and those blue shorts... it looked horrible.

I don't think I've ever commented about the clothes, but since Bonnie shows some new things today, oh goodness, what are they thinking with that blue dress? The velour pants with top, those colors don't go together, do they? Looks like a pink and a peach together, clashing. They are clueless about fashion and the descriptions they use show it, like Rachel Parcell, they have no vocabulary in the fashion world. Bonnie didn't even know what an item was made out of, had to look at the tag, and if you designed it, wouldn't you normally know this stuff? I don't mind polyester, it is more flexible, but some of the designs just look so cheap and the polyester adds to it.
This spring line isn't what I personally like and I can't image pricing these items on the high end. I didn't like the details on the blue dress and comfortable might be the only thing this young lady model liked about this item. I didn't like the busyness of the white top. I don't know how they compete against, for example, a Kohl's where the styling is up to date and prices are reasonable since their clothes are nothing special. I also thinking they are finding most of their sales are happening when they cut their prices. We are conditioned not to pay full retail prices and another negative issue for them continues to be their return policy.

Ahhh feels so nice what is it made of .......polyester....(crickets sound effect).....Ellie: There is all different kinds of plastic ehh polyester!
Be honest for once ladies you are working with your China contact and it’s cheaper to produce and sell for a profit no matter how irritating and unhealthy non breathable it is for the skin!
No Ellie not everything is polyester there is cotton too as well as silk and wool etc etc.....
Bonnie bursts out laughing hysterically when the plus size model comes down stairs in the shorts then tries to reel herself in!
Luxury breakfast is absolutely not allowed for Lincoln that is only for adults.
Also if she had any sense she would buy a whole bunch of waterproof fitted mattress covers and let the boys wear proper underpants! My guess is they can’t even feel their need to go!
Finally, enough with the blush pink already!
They have been beating that blush pink horse to death!

Very nice of her to humiliate her kids again by letting us know that both Lincoln AND Boston peed the bed. I thought the new YT rules meant they’re not allowed to film kids in embarrassing situations?
It is against YouTube policies and a reason why she was demonetized. I felt bad for Boston who goes to school where peers could give him a hard time after watching this. Bonnie seems concerned about viewers being mean to her, for example, today she brought up Lady in the cage resulting in negative comments. However, she doesn't seem to recognize the harm she could cause her children when she tells members of her community including churches and schools, their personal information. If you were their teacher, would you talk to Bonnie and Joel about their children's exposure on YouTube if they see problems at school?

What in the Little House on the Prairie is that blue dress?!?! Who is honestly going to wear that in 2020?

I’m a plus size person and I would never wear those shorts. Did they not see the camel toe on that poor model?

The new rules (COPPA) don't have anything to do with embarrassing the kids _on_ YouTube. But yes, they have guidelines against filming children in embarrassing situations. The problem is that there are too many channels, and YouTube only cares when the bottom line is affected. Otherwise, there would be a way to report these videos. And there isn't. You can only report child abuse, or child pornography, which although appalling, this isn't.
What's really despicable is that when she was demonetized, Bonnie tearfully said she didn't mean to embarrass her kids. She blamed YT, because those videos get lots of views. I call BS on that. She gleefully embarrasses her kids.
I know I'm beating a dead horse, but it never ceases to amaze me that ANYONE can look up to any of the Griffiths as parenting role models. They treat their children like non-persons with no rights.

Lot to unpack on this vlog. First off, I guess every vlog now Bonnie is going to respond to what she calls negative comments. That's really a great way to get viewers watching your vlogs-not! Bonnie doesn't have the experience with dogs but Miss know it all won't listen to people trying to help her! Second there was no need to mention Boston having an accident. As a side note, why couldn't the parents go with the kids to the ball game! Sad when the nanny is more interested in taking your kids to stuff than the parents!

Now the clothes. I think this is the first time I have commented on their Bollie stuff-I didn't like any of the items. The dresses and that white blouse with the ruffle deal was my least favorite. Do they think the models are going to say this stuff is ugly? They are going to say whatever the people paying them wants to hear! I am plus size just to clarify my next statements. The outfits just didn't look good on the plus size models-none of the Bollie items have though. Personally they would probably do better just to quit trying for outfits that size!

That breakfast deal with Joel then her and Ellie go to eat lunch - wow is all I'm going to say!

So many things... we’ve already mentioned the hideous clothes. The blue dress, very cheap looking velour and the fit (that young girl said she was 5’11”). Of course Bonnie nor Ellie will ever be seen in those clothes.

Why were they doing a showing in someone’s home and not an office? Of course the “booking agent” is going to praise the clothes...$$$$

So Bonnie has another new coat. What happened to her red coat?

Does Bonnie even watch the vlogs before putting them out? These vlogs are so unflattering to her. I think since Joel is the one doing the editing, showing Bonnie like this is him being passive aggressive towards her. So weird.

Omg that fugly blue dress! I actually gasped so loud I scared my dog and he jumped up and started barking like we had a break in! It’s sooo hideous I’m so shook! I remember I has a frilly blouse exactly like that one...in the early 80’s! Noooo I’m so blown away by those horrible pieces. I keep thinking this is some kind of joke..but they’re serious. Pull your heads out dumbasses..the models and agent lady were kissing your asses because you are PAYING them! :D

I suffered through this vlog to get pics so no one else does. I’m dying you guys...that blue dress CANNOT be for real!! What were they thinking?! You know those models were cringing up in that bedroom then came downstairs and swooned over every item because they know E&B are a couple of ding dongs and will eat it up...they’re just there to get paid and are working them over! The poor plus size girl came down and said the blue shorts fit so well...no honey, they didn’t. Then these two bimbos sit in the car and admit their sizing was all wrong, especially for plus sizes. But it was clothing for everyBODY I thought?? They claimed for the last year they meticulously considered plus size, things were true to size. and hadn’t just sized up the regular sizes. LIARS. Then they claim they listen to feedback and make changes. Umm only the changes you care about! Any negative feedback is quickly deleted and ignored!! And you know they filter reviews on their website. And that polyester conversation had me dying. Of course you got flack for that because you claim to be high end, best of the best and have ridiculous prices! If that wasn’t the case, no one would care about the polyester. The mental gymnastics these two must have to do to convince themselves that Bollie is going to be a thriving company that women (other than viewers want) is just ridiculous.

Sounds like there’s also a blue and white jumpsuit and black pants that we didn’t get to see. Can’t wait for that jumpsuit. Honestly I don’t hate the velour pants, those are kinda trendy right now for someone in their early 20s. But I’d get them for 20 dollars at target and they’d be lounge or errands pants. But their target audience doesn’t seem to be that age (unless we consider the Mormon housewife who starts off around age 18). Never in a million years would I wear the little house on the prairie dress. As someone who’d probably be an XL in their clothes, I KNOW those shorts would fit horribly on me.

[IMG]//uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/202001 ... f14505.jpg[/IMG]

Also it looks like they took some design ideas from Ellie’s stylist “friend” who makes “not dumb shorts”. P.s. if you all want to see some ugly ass clothing and really sad pandering (aka cropping her very dumb shorts onto celebrities), check out this Instagram!![IMG]//uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/202001 ... 8f43b7.jpg[/IMG]

And not totally similar but that pink dress had me thinking of this. [IMG]//uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/202001 ... 5ed6db.jpg[/IMG]

Why wouldn't you let a 6 month old puppy wander around the house? I'm not opposed to crates at all- we definitely used one for our dog- but a 6 month old dog should be allowed to mill about the house at least while the family is home. Maybe not wandering all over the place, but certainly not contained in a crate all the damn time. Unless we did something horribly wrong with our dog? But ours was definitely fully trained by the time she was 11 weeks or so.

or when not in the crate, being carried around like a damn stuffed animal! Bonnie just does not get it and never will, and because of this, I hope she never, ever, buys another dog again!

Do they even know it is "Handmaid Tale lingo"? It doesn't fit their family's strict viewing restrictions (Shari just mentioned that even the CareBears cartoon was restricted by Ruby along with tween Nick show iCarly, and they even type curse words for the YT filter without looking).

It sort of crosses the line of humor for me when the Handmaid Tale parallels some of their real-life views and beliefs so closely. Even some of the Bollie clothes could be wardrobe for the series. It just makes me feel uneasy. Of course if Bonnie is just trolling us because "haters" let her know about the parallels between her world and that horrific distopia, then that is pretty hilarious.

ETA: Maybe if she actually watched the show, she could see the value in getting Olivia the help she needs to become literate. Or, she would misinterpret it and see how much "easier" it is to control girls when they are nothing but obedient wombs.

Not just the camel toe, that white ruffled blouse looked awful on the plus size model. The proportions look off. You can't just make it bigger for plus sized women. The sizing is different. Of course, they wouldn't know because nothing could be worse for a "Griffiths girl" than to actually have to wear plus sizes.

That blue dress looks is just awful. It’s looks homemade. Homemade by someone like me who doesn’t know how to sew. I don’t understand the style of some of these dresses. They’re nothing like what these two wore pre Bollie day, and continue to wear and buy.

Who is their target market? The Duggar’s? Maybe set up a pop up shop in Amish County. They’d do a roaring trade there.

Bonnie shows off her controlling personality to perfection with the breakfast/lunch nonsense. She really is an awful human being.
