yes thats true, though some of the facts suggest her show is a hobby that she happens to get paid for
but apart from that, it is more what her show represents in terms of fantasy and focus
home, food, husband, friends
if you look closely at how she talks about Jeffery, there is something going on there that you don't really see communicated elsewhere...in contrast to the pop culture norm being the representation of males as being stupid or abusive
and then there is the fact that you can't be a guest on the show unless you are a personal friend of hers in real life. Thats so weird, and at the same time contains a clue.
