  • Tina is a sweet woman with penetrating eyes. She's a homemaker married to Harley, who makes 100K a year as a car salesman. They have one preschool son whom she always refers to as "Pooh", "Pooh Bear" or "Boo".moreless

    Poor Boo gets dragged out to the racetrack and the Bingo parlor while mom gambles away tens of thousands a year to try to raise money for her ten-pill-a-day Vicodin habit. Tina has pawned her wedding ring numerous times and Harley is always suspicious, but ultimately always gives in. Tina does go for treatment, but leaves early because she misses her son. In the second airing, Harley has divorced her and she goes back into treatment. After the second time, Tina claims to be sober but also states that she uses prescription painkillers for kidney stones, so it's impossible to say whether she will want to continue to take drugs after her health situation is resolved.moreless
  • Painful to watch a woman throwing away her life and a wonderful life she held. This aired in May 05’ but I just viewed it last night January 21, 2007. I was touched.moreless

    I thought to myself, what a lucky woman she is to have such a loving and devoted husband…… shouldn’t we all be so lucky. Harley, you’re a strong man to try and help Tina, but deep inside she needs to want to help herself. I was touched by the caring the family showed and was hoping Tina would take the help she so desperately needed. The show related Tina’s continued drug abuse and gambling……. Has anything changed? I am sorry for the breakdown of this family and especially for Harley and his son…. My heart goes out to you Harley.moreless
