Well, we've come to the end of the road -- in more ways than one, but I'll get to that later. Today on The Real Deal, we've got the finale of Bravo's Extreme Guide to Parenting, with what's legitimately extreme, what's not, and all sorts of behind the scenes elements I noticed. Also, a Twitter question and a very big announcement from yours truly!


This week, we meet the Axnesses, and right off the bat, Nate Axness is giving viewers hives. Twitter blew up last night discussing whether Nate is a controlling husband, and whether wife and mother of 16-month-old Ella, Christian Axness, is truly on board with her husband's decisions.

One by one, in today's video below, I examine the parental strategy of the Axness family, from natural birth to sign language, placenta encapsulation, elimination communication, and more. By the way, does "elimination communication" make you want to sing that old song "Accentuate the Positive, Eliminate the Negative"? Because of course that's where I went with it. And then there's vaccination. Oh BOY ... is there. I give you lots of talking points on that.

Finally, you may have heard one big piece of news in my life recently, but I guarantee you haven't heard the other big news yet. What in the world am I talking about? Watch the video to see!
