IN CELEBRATION OF HER 100TH EPISODE, SUPERNANNY CATCHES UP WITH
SOME OF HER MOST MEMORABLE FAMILIES, ON ABC'S "SUPERNANNY"
"100th Episode Special" - She's crisscrossed America, including Alaska and Hawaii, in her six seasons as the voice of reason for parents worldwide. Now Supernanny Jo Frost revisits some of her most memorable families in celebration of her 100th episode to find out how they're doing today. "Supernanny" airs FRIDAY, JANUARY 28 (8:00-9:00 p.m., ET) on the ABC Television Network. (Rebroadcast. OAD 3/12/10).
The families include:
· The Weinstein family, Amherst, OH - In Season 2, Jo worked closely with this truck driver dad, David, who was a quintessential "raging bull," while his wife, Chia, was a pushover with their four kids. Jo helped tame David's bullying ways. After looking back and celebrating their journey, and then discussing the issues they have today, Jo asks dad to take his ladies out on a special bonding activity in which he embraces his feminine side.
· The Lewis family, Claremont, CA - In Season 5, Antoinette Lewis was widowed just days prior to Supernanny coming to work with her and her two toddlers. As her husband, Dwight, lay dying of cancer, he urged Supernanny, via video, to come help his wife make the adjustment to single parenthood. In the year since then, using Jo's tools, Antoinette has picked herself up and been a pillar of strength for her kids. An overjoyed and tearful Jo is thrilled to reconnect with the Lewis brood, and they commemorate Dwight's life in a poignant way.
· Newsome family, Tallahassee, FL - A divorced mom of six, Blythe Newsome had lost control of her kids while juggling home foreclosure, downsizing into a tiny new home and juggling a job as a morning drive deejay that had her leaving the house at 3:00 a.m. each morning. Since Jo's departure, Blythe has adjusted to her life as a single mom and is rolling with the punches. The family and Jo look back on the journey they went through, and then Jo surprises Blythe and her oldest daughter, who is about to get her driver's license, with an impromptu driving lesson.
