Episode Summary

EDIT
Zirconias Are a Girl's Best Friend
AIRED:
Vint's trying to pull Naomi away from the TV, so they can go bowling. But she's hooked on the KRAY teleshopper, he finally does get her to leave. Mama at first thinks it's silly, but after seeing a ring she likes at such a great price and then deciding to order the matching necklace, she quickly becomes hooked on it. Ordering any and everything she sees and refusing to miss a show. She becomes such a regular customer that the on-air host, Travis, knows her by name. Vint, Naomi, Iola and Bubba take notice when the bill for Mama's credit card arrives and it's over $1500. Mama of course refuses to admit she has a problem and complains endlessly as the family boxes up all of her recent purchases to send them back. She holds out several items of jewelry, hoping to get to keep them. But gets caught, because the TV is rigged with an alarm, when she sneaks and tries to watch the Teleshopper again. The family and Iola then go about the task of breaking her shopping habit. It involves watching the shows with her and whenever Mama goes for the phone to place a new order, they whack her in the head with a newspaper (much like you would do a new puppy) and scream "NO". Prompting Mama to say "All I did was use the phone, I didn't make a mess." Safe to say it eventually works.moreless
