Episode 106 ("Carmela") -- Carmela is a 26-year-old restaurant manager in Bayonne, NJ who has found herself sinking into debt because of her pricey shopping habits. Over a third of her monthly income goes to clothes, makeup, tanning, nails and cigarettes. Engaged to her fianc�, Marcus, she also owes her future in-laws thousands of dollars in "loans." But despite all her money troubles, Carmella still expects to have her big, expensive Italian dream wedding. With the help of money coach Farnoosh Torabi, Carmella�s parents, Mary and Joseph, team up to give their daughter a wake-up call about the realities of her wedding expectations vs. her actual budget, on a new episode of "Bank of Mom & Dad," WEDNESDAY, NOVEMBER 4 (10:00 p.m. � 11:00 p.m., ET/PT) on SOAPnet.
