Watch Episode 1 - Jessica, Ken, and CaCee travel to Thailand.
I simply love Jess! This show was so beautiful and interesting to me. It left me with a closer connection to women all over the world! I think Thailand is a rich, and beautiful culture warm in tradition!
I think it is not disrespect, but it is being unaware to the customs and the rituals of the countries that they visit. I do not think her intentions were bad, but she should have studied and looked into their culture a little more before visiting, so that she knew how to act according to their culture.
She is a sweet girl and her intentions are good in this show, I just think that although she is famous and well known, she is still like all of us in how we are all naive and immature when it comes to acting a certain way in other countries.
when she mentioned "his" head, she wasn't talking about a person. she was talking about the elephant. it's a big difference whether she's being disrespectful to a person or disrespectful towards an elephant.
Pathetic and disapointing (and not just this episode by the way)...to be a guest in these countries and say the disrespectful juvenile things she says! I was shocked and disapointed after seeing the publicity for it on orpah and morning shows. Maybe its bad editing I dont know seriously...."his head looks like a *******"?? Thats one of many stupid disrespectful comments. This show could of been so enlightening and uplifting its a shame. I liked Jessica in the past Im kinda surprised by her interviews she wanted this to be like this oh well.
Just came back from Thailand and stumbled upon this show. Yes, there were parts that the guest could be more respectful, but it is their first episode and from the look of things, there first real encounter with an Asian's culture. Give them a break peplz, they're learning and i'm sure all these culture shocks will educate them about themselves and the world around them. It's hard to act appropriate if you don't know what the appropriate expectations are...
Christian dude- fyi- Christianity is about community and appreciating/respecting those around you, not judgment or us vs. them.. enough said.
Cacee and Jessica were so disrespectful, I'm really disappointed
didnt notice that until you said something!
I am also christian but it does not hurt to learn about other religions. The problem with most christians is that their minds are so closed up and think that they are always right. I believe in God, but I love learning about other's beliefs.
Is this God Warrior? LMAO.
I LOVE!!!! this show, and how it also makes me feel like I am pretty and beautiful i my body!!=)
Wow,,, WWJD? not make a comment like this. So the whole point of this is to experiance beauty in other countries and try some of their culture. Jessica's beliefs don't change because of her experience with other cultures religious traditions. Just because an Atheist goes to an easter service doesn't make him a Christian. And the same applies here. Just because you fell prey to it doesn't mean she will.
I am glad VH1 did this. To show beauty comes from within and is outwardly different every where you go. Good Job Jessica..
Actually she flew Panya to LA and is having her meet with a dermatologist. so she is giving her help.
Where's Nick? - It's not the same without him!
I love the show but I think it would make more sense if she also somehow got donations for these people that allowed her to video tape them. Like the woman that ruined her face by using those creams. It was sad to see that Jessica only was able to offer her kind words of it's okay when in reality it's not =(
Dear Concerned "Christian", I would like to request that in the future you refrain from calling yourself a Christian. It's not that I have a personal problem with you, it's just that you give a bad name to Christianity. You see, Christianity is to believe in the Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, a man who accepted all people no matter what their religion or background may have been. Further, if you remember, in the New Testament Jesus Christ stresses the point of forgiveness for all of your sins. Your belief in a pastor over Jesus is troubling, and not at all Christian. Please keep your judgmental comments to yourself, you silly pagan. God Bless
First, I would like to say that this concept of this show is fantastic. I was really excited to watch and experience the beauty of some many other cultures. And I still believe that. However, I am honestly disappointed with the stereotypical "stupid American" demeanor that Jessica and CaCee have shown so far. Granted I have only watched the Thailand episode. I would like to be fair and say that for the most part they are courteous and respectful but literally gagging at the local dietary regime in a open market is disgraceful. Simply decline if that is your reaction. I was also taken aback by Jessica's laughter in the Buddhist temple. But I respected her later insight that perhaps she needs to work on being able to be quiet with herself. I was impressed with the expose of the facial cream disaster but it was hard to get behind Jessica's attempts to comfort with "It will be alright." when the truth is it won't. All in all I think that this program has great potential and is exposing the world's wonders to an audience that otherwise may not be able or interested in experiencing. My hope is that a little more respect be shown in future.
You really disgust me you piece of cult following insane jackass
Concerned Christian-- You are just one big smoking hot mess arent you? Your really that ignorant and quite frankley stupid to believe that just because Jessica wanted to learn about other cultures that arent her own she needs to be clensed? You must be so messed up to think that way You are a bigot and a racist and absolutaly out of your damn mind. Oh and im an Agnostic so your whole "God is the only way" is not impressing me and just pissing me and alot of other people off. So keep your insane cult following traditions to your self and just enjoy the beauty other cultures have to offer and maybe open your ignorant little mind up a little bit more!
any one know what song is playing at about1:36? I would really like to know! help would be great! When the plane is taking off. Ive been tryna find it all day!
Very well said! (=
