I watched this show and found them to be a loving cute family. They definately were hollywood spoiled, but seemed to enjoy their children and each other. i think the jury is out at what truly happened between them. The children are the ones to be dragged from this family and out into divorce land. not a fun place.

you all are so oo mean to SHANNA! leave the girl alone. First of all , it's always the people that live in glass houses that cast stones. How fitting is that. Secondly, the reason their kids werent shown on air all the time or at all, is because of a claus that was between Oscar and Shanna. Their daughter was not "allowed" to be on the air for more than (whatever was in the contract). You shouldn't even judge their marriage, they had everything going for them and it was a tough one to work out, just like A LOT of marriages.
Shanna, we love you and don't let the haters bring you down. they don't even know you like I do.

hugs and kisses

Travis Barker is a skinny, ugly dog! Don't know why that beautiful woman would settle for that scarecrow with the ugly tatoos!

I just think it's all so sad. Why can't people stick it out? It's too easy to just give up. I wish them the best, but I totally would like to know why they broke up.

NEVER have a show on VH1 or MTV and maybe your relationship will have a chance. MAYBE.

It's true that reality shows can be edited to show participants in a certain way and it's always best to view them with a healthy pinch of scepticism but in what way can editing be blamed for La Moakler's continued inability to rise before noon despite being the mother of two young kids and despite the fact she refused to do a lick of work? Remember this is the woman who had no idea how to work her own vacuum cleaner let alone where it was. Or how about her decision to leave those same kids in order to trail around behind her somewhat reluctant husband while he was on tour? The inability to shut up about their sex life? The endless parties followed by the hangovers? In what way does this make her a good mother and a great human being? Come on people wake up, beauty is as beauty does. I can only assume that the decision to participate in a reality show was a way to convince the rest of us that this has been soap opera queen had hidden talents. If it was it failed miserably. I have to say I have more respect for her hardworking and increasing beleagured husband (even though the mohican and tattoos are by British standards straight out of the Seventies and thereby a bit sad.) It also doesn't surprise me that he would end up being the one to file to divorce.

Its been rumored that Dude has AIDS. Wifey found out that he got caught with a "Tranny surprise" down on Sunset Blvd. Im not sure what the whole story is, but it is obviouse that she is takin it hard. If he has AIDS he needs to go public, so all of the Trans can get tested.
Keep on winning dude.
