(Original Air Date: 05/17/12) Kade says after seeing a Dr. Phil episode about sugar babies, he joked with his wife, April, that she should give it a try. Although he took photos of her, Kade says he never expected April would actually meet up with anyone. April says meeting strangers for sex turned out to be more exciting than being intimate with Kade, and the extra cash helped their family, but now it’s ruining their marriage. Hear what April says about her past that may shed light on her current choices. And, can she and Kade rekindle the intimacy in their marriage? Then, Tori, 15, says her mother, Lacey, loves to be the center of attention and often flaunts her L-sized breast implants -- much to Tori's embarrassment. She says she can’t go anywhere with her mom without people stopping them to take photos or ask for autographs, and the constant spotlight makes her feel uncomfortable. Lacey says despite the effect that her appearance has on her daughter, she relishes the attention, and although she’s already had 12 surgeries on her breasts, she wants to go even bigger. Is there a line that Lacey won’t cross when it comes to going under the knife?

Find out what happened on the show.

I’m at an age now when plastic surgery could become an option in the near future.  My mother had several operations over the years that helped increase her self-esteem dramatically, yet she was never completely happy for fulfilled.  It has become a sort of status symbol nowadays to get nipped and tucked and some women even WANT to look like they’ve had work done.  Those huge bubble lips, eyelash extensions and stiff faces have become the “new look” for women over a certain age.  Unfortunately, the more I see them in magazines or on the street, the less I want to do it myself.  I find that it makes them look so fake and terribly insecure.   Whenever I see a woman who’s had work done, which to me always shows, I always wonder what could possibly be so wrong with the way she looked before that would necessitate the risk of anesthesia and unnecessary surgeries.

Lacey’s poor body image and pathetic need for attention made me feel sorry for her.  She clearly suffers from a sort of Body Dysmorphic Disorder, which impairs her judgment and by extension her quality of life.  Being ridiculed and leered at by men must have a negative impact on her psyche whether she admits it to herself or not.  She truly needs psychological help with these issues, not more surgeries and the Doctor who is performing these augmentations should have his license pulled permanently.

There's a point of diminshing returns with plastic surgery, and it looks like Lacey is at that point. The pictures of her when she was younger looked so much prettier because her face  - especially her lips - looked much more natural. The lips now are just too puffy looking.  The point at which to stop plastic surgery is before it's obvious that you've had "work done."

I also wonder about the example she is setting for her children, with all the emphasis on the superficial. The corporate mass media has helped create our mindless, shallow culture, and the result is millions of people who seem to only value appearance, celebrity, and money. This is not progress.

This is so pathetic! With 6 kids, she's choosing to put her money into big, bigger and the biggest boobs?? Grow up already and get a real job like the rest of us!! I don't believe she's not doing something for money??
People don't just give away 30,000.00 for a chat on the laptop lady!!!

My 6 year old daughter walked into the room as Lacey says "I have a little bit of brain" she turned to me and said "well Momma horses have a little brain too, does that mean she is a horse?"  I laughed so hard.

man, that is too too much.  I am a 48 year old woman and this woman looks ten years older than me if not 7 years older.  Man, these surgeries, to me, are not helping her at all.  She looks gross to me!!  I give big koodoos to her daughter!!! Sometimes it's sad when the child is more mature than the parent.

Is todays show supposed to be a joke? Because it sure IS. The first woman having a "sugar daddy", I almost hurt myself falling onto the floor from laughter. NO WAY IN THE WORLD does any man pay or give that woman money or "gifts" for sex. The thought of it is absurd! And the second "woman", if you can still call her that, is nothing but a walking punchline. And worst of all, she's spent tons of money and looks like some kind of medical experiment gone wrong. How does her "doctor" still have a license?

Why would any reputable plastic surgeon do the surgery? Aren't there guidelines as to the psychological fitness of patients before they take the risk of elective surgery?

Good grief......"L" size, really???? On purpose???  I don't blame the daughter for not wanting to be seen with her Mother, I wouldn't either.  Yes, people probably stare at her, but it's not in admiration, it's more like how people stare at circus freaks.
