Nothing new here, just the same old obsessive weirdos.

I suppose wastrel single baby machine Ebony is on benefits, and spends most of it on stuff she doesn't need.

At least Dipna spends her parents money, boy is she a spoilt princess.

Dene is almost sane, trying his best to recreate the excitement of his Pop days by buying hawiian shirts off E-Yab, no, I'll take that back, Dene is insane.

Love Jasmine, but felt uncomfotable as she gushed forth psychiatric opinions that she isn't really qualified to opine.

Where does all the money come from?
Dipna is, as you say spoilt with rich parents, who are blind to it being a serious problem.
The other two have big debts, not all all worried about them.
What a waste of all those unused goods. Dene surely doesn't make that much money now?
At least his situation has improved.
I feel sorry for Ebony's boys, they life is dominated by her addiction.
I was shocked by the extent of the addictions of those featured.
I thought Jasmine did a good job.
She has great experience of her mother 's hoarding addiction, and has discussed the problems with psychiatrists , so I think her knowledge and experience should be recognised.

Looks like Jasmine has been spending some of her shopping money at Gregg's.

All those years of pushing pineapples and shaking trees is bound to take its toll.

Exactly so. Jasmine always does a good job.

The e-bay addicted bloke looked like an overweight Morrissey. In fact, just looked like Morrissey these days!

I think perhaps it might be due to the fact she'd not long had a baby when the programme was made.

Dipna reminded me of a family I knew when I was growing up. The son was "special needs" and the parents constant worry was what would happen to him when they died.
Dipna's parents really are killing her with kindness. No mention of friends, social life, interests outside the home (other than shopping, obviously). Very sad. Money can't buy you everything, as they say.

I thought Asian families would be queing up their sons to marry Dipna, she's pretty and smart [ and RICH ! ] but she seems to be a home bird and a Mummy's Girl.
It's not her parents that are preventing her from spreading her wings, she wants babies and a husband but can't take the first steps towards that goal.

She may have said she wanted to get married but I don't think she really did. I was a bit surprised there was no talk of an arranged marriage but as she's reached 30 maybe she's just too old. Dipna didn't want a substitute for shopping and daddy looked rich enough to always bail her out.

I think Dipna came across the most unlikeable out of the three of them.

She seemed ungrateful, spoilt and unaware of what she actually did have. Does she seriously think earning £500 a week can buy dozens of Chanel belts and brand new Mercedes?!?

A lot of the stuff she bought for thousands of pounds actually looked quite chavvy!!

I thought Dipna seemed very immature. My son remarked that she acted and talked as if she was about 12 years old.

Dipna's having the last laugh. She's a tv regular!

Raymond Blancs 10 week The Restaurant You’re Fried series as a Restaurateur judge, Ramsay’s cook-along, Ramsay’s Best Restaurant and The Hotel. She co-owns the family run Brilliant Restaurant in Southall and has also published a recipe book.

I didn't believe she wanted a husband but now I'm only surprised she had any time for shopping.

Having the last laugh? She made a fool of herself really on national television and if your story is correct, blatantly exaggerated (shall we say) her circumstances

She's a self confessed shopaholic but if you don't believe me Google Dipna ... it's all there.

No no, it's not you I don't believe!

It was said that Dipna lives on an income of £500 a week from mediocre sounding jobs. Was that an exaggeration on her part or the production team, to make her Chanel obsession look more dramatic? Had she been portrayed as 'restaurant owner, tv star' it would hardly have had the same impact.

My opinion of her stays the same. And she really has terrible tacky tastes in my opinion!!

You suppose wrong, she mentioned how dull her days were, lacking excitement and going to work was one of the things mentioned.

They're like hoarders with neat homes. Well, okay, Ebony had a locked room that was a bit crowded and messy, but overall their behaviors are very similar to hoarders from a compulsion point of view.
