Did we miss anyone?


  1. I am curious about Emily’s weight Gain and if it had to do with her pregnancies on bones. was she really pregnant on the show or was her weight gain fictitious. After the birth of her first child she slimmed down nicely and wondered what happened after her second child, because she is heavier now than she was after her first child. Her face is puffy like a alcoholic or drug addict or someone who is sick , Is she oks’ I had a puffy face when I was drinking and then when I stopped I lost all of the weight till I quit smoking then gained 39 lbs and another 20 after a car accident and surgery and it has stayed on have become sedentary and wondered why bones was going off the air?
