Behind the Scenes with Jenny and Bryan at www.WEtv.com
NEW YORK, NY - May 24, 2010 - Ah, overflowing Diaper Genies, car seats, endless loads of laundry, stale Cheerios under cushions and of course - tantrums a plenty! This is life with six toddlers in the midst of the terrible two's...and major changes are about to take the family down an unpredictable new path. This summer, WE tv welcomes back Jenny and Bryan Masche and their six kids for the second season of RAISING SEXTUPLETS, premiering Thursday, June 24 at 10 PM ET/PT. Bryan decides it's time for a career change, which means a lot more than just a new job. It involves moving the family cross-country, buying a new house, dealing with unsupportive family members, financial struggles, increasing squabbles and marriage counseling... and having to move in with Jenny's parents! But the Masches never do anything simply - and with them, it's always an adventure.
Last season, WE tv viewers met the Masche family as they navigated uncharted waters of being new parents trying to raise six newborns simultaneously. Now, the babies (who spent their first eight weeks of life in a neonatal intensive care unit) have blossomed into active, inquisitive toddlers. Savannah, Bailey, Molli, Grant, Cole and Blake are learning the ropes of potty training, sleeping in beds and being able to vocalize both their happiness... and their displeasure!
This season, the whole family is in for some major life changes when they move across the country from Arizona to Florida, despite the pleas of their family members to stay. As Bryan studies for a new career in finance, the family faces the economic strain of raising a large family on one salary in today's financial climate. Add the stress of moving, packing up an entire house of 8, preparing a caravan of vehicles to make the 1800-plus-mile drive, and trying to find a new home that is big enough for everyone. With the onset of the terrible two's, the chaos, stress and tensions escalate to new heights. As the family arrives in Florida, they must quickly learn how to do everything on their own, now that their support system has been left behind. But despite the strain and pressure, the Masches' optimism and love for their children helps them to navigate through rough times together.
Highlights of RAISING SEXTUPLETS Season 2 include:
· Turning 2!: The Masche Sextuplets have defied the odds and made it from delicate preemies to healthy, active two-year-olds. The family heads off to New York City to appear on CBS' The Early Show and do some sight-seeing with Aunt Barbara and Grandma Laura in tow to help keep the kids contained on the cross-country flight.
· Studying for a Career Change: Bryan must pass his Series 7 test in one try to make good on his plans to become a financial advisor. Studying proves harder than he thought with six little ones underfoot! He relies on Jenny and her parents to watch the children 10-12 hours a day - even when Jenny is at work - so he can focus on passing the test.
· 10 Together: Living with the In-Laws: The Masche family is forced to move in with Jenny's parents when they find renters for their Arizona property before they are ready to move to Florida. All 10 family members (plus Luke the dog!) try to live peacefully together under one roof while managing six toddlers 24 hours a day.
· Help, Marriage Counselor!: Bryan and Jenny discuss major changes for the family, including a new career for Bryan and a move for the family from Arizona to Destin, Florida. They realize they are not listening to each other enough, arguing more, and need professional assistance in the form of marriage counseling.
· A Swamp in the Backyard?! Tensions mount as Jenny and Bryan house-hunt in Florida! They cannot agree on where to live that's a safe surrounding for the kids... which doesn't include the bayou-backyard home Bryan loves.
· No More Family Help: Jenny and Bryan struggle to manage their parenting responsibilities without their family's help, who now live more than 1800 miles away.
