The first season was definetly the best one yet. They need to bring Caroline back with her family and Jacklyn you need to just forget about Teresa she has never really been a true friend to you like you are to her, I love all of them but they really need to say goodbye to Teresa inless she changes and becomes a good person.

Show is fine. But I've purchased the full season (11) and all working fine until episode 12 and haven't been able to watch new episodes or past episodes in the season since. Not an issue at my end as I can watch other shows via Google Play just not this one. Google Play won't provide me with a refund as not providing me with what I paid for for over two weeks doesn't meet their policies. Almost impossible to contact anyone. Not really satisfactory at all. Happens a lot you buy something on Google Play easily but provided whenever and now not provided. Not cool.
