March 9, 2006

Imagine spending $25,000 in one weekend while you're $80,000 in debt. That's what Michael's shopaholic wife, Bridgette, did and her excessive spending is ruining their marriage. What started as a shopping intervention turned into a family in crisis.

Cameras were rolling when Bridgette and Mike left the house in the middle of the night to resolve an argument between their daughter, Lauren, and her live-in boyfriend.
