I think they want to go from family vloggers to lifestyle vloggers with Annie being the star of the show, considering that 99.9% of the vlog was just her. I don't think it's going to work unless she gets some personality. I know she's a teen, but is there something more vapid than saying that "skin care" is your new year's resolution?
Yep. And announcing "I washed my face this morning!" Like it's some revelation that we should be on the edge of our seats to hear..
Agree with Lisa-- Annie will never be able to play the guitar if she doesn't trim her nails way down. My guitar teacher when I was trying to learn when I was in high school gave me endless grief about my nails. His wife played bongos in his band, and she said that was why she played bongos instead of guitar.
It's really not fair to only have 2 short clips of Hayley in the entire video. Glad there was _any_ though, and we weren't actually subjected to Annie "snuggling with Piper".

Oh, and the sound effects-- awful. "This is our first weekly vlog" (applause) and didn't they use a laugh track at one point? If they start using that air horn sound effect that so many vloggers use, my eyes will roll out of my head.

I haven’t gotten very far and it is soooooo choppy. I’m all for her learning a new skill by editing for fun, but this is literally the family income.

Also, she changed her new year’s resolution from taking pictures to skincare. Okay. :tu:
She needs clear skin to take flawless photo’s. That girl obsesses sooo much over her skin. She went to TARGET and bought a bunch of skin care stuff. Like what? Neutrogena cleanser and $2 face masks. Way to invest in your skin Annie.

Surely someone like her woulda dropped tons of money on those $6 face masks from Sephora or bought some more expensive cleansers like Fresh or First Aid Beauty. Or even glam glow. I know she used to use that stuff... $40 a bottle. Now she’s buying skin care at Target? Sure it’s good stuff for the average person, but don’t you think with their income she woulda dropped another $750 at Sephora on skin care?
I noticed that too. She already owns a bunch of skincare from Sephora unless she used it all. Which means she was already doing plenty of skincare for her age. I wonder if she was trying to be relatable or if they are already cutting back financially.
She’s never worried about relatability, this is a girl with a $450 belt and her own mini apartment. Relatability isn’t her primary concern. It’s looking hot in photo’s.

I commend her though cause with all the crap she eats, her skin is pretty clear. I’m not sure she’s ever had an acne breakout in her life. Though it’s possible that puberty is still prolonging her arrival and so she’s riding the end of this wave Of youthful appearance before the real hormones kick in.

But idk. This girl says she uses Ceraphil and Neutrogena products and her skin is pretty flawless. She is the same age as Annie. But when’s also an athlete and I assume that may have helped her?

Billy kept it simple. Copy and paste clips between intro and outro cards. An instrumental montagesped up if needed. No excessive effects. It wasn’t until Annie said he needed to add words. He used to document the day. But as far as I know there was no laugh track in past vlogs. Unless it happened in the LA vlogs that I don’t watch.

So in that trainwreck of a vlog today, why didn't Katie say anything when she was driving Annie around? The only thing we heard was her turn signal. Then Billy took Annie to the guitar shop and when she panned over to him, he immediately did an about face. So if you're having marital problems, you can't fake it and appear on the family vlog? I don't buy it, especially when dollar signs are involved. Seems like it's more about Annie not wanting her parents to say a word because she wants control. I watched a recent vlog of Jayden's and her Mom and Nana are both active participants and Jayden is totally fine with that. I actually enjoyed watching. Annie used to be great at vlogging when she was younger and now she is a total snoozefest....ZZZZZzzzzzz.....

Interesting that Mia is heading to LA to follow her acting dream. Annie's minions are crucifying her in the comments though as can be expected.

Jojo posted a vlog at an escape room with Hayden Summerall. Hayden's voice is changing and it doesn't sound anything like him and he just looks weird and uncomfortable during the entire vlog. Dad Jimmy is shown in the vlog too. I know Jojo was friends with Hayden before the whole Hannie sh*tshow started. I got the impression she is still his friend and was trying to boost his popularity. It didn't work though and he peaked with #hannie. Time to go back to Texas.

1) The vlog felt like someone intentionally cut out all the good bits and left in the rest.

2) Earlier people were saying how they could see Hayley doing comedy. As someone who actually does comedy irl and has been doing it for over a decade, I can't see her doing it. Especially if she ends up resentful of the life she has now. I have so many stories, but comedy is still entertainment and it can be brutal. She may be funny and smart, but I think she's too nice a person, who would be way better off getting out of this toxic business totally.

I could see older Hayley enjoying anonymity, going to college and having a group of friends that like her for who she is, not just because she’s “Hayley from Bratayley” or just Annie’s sister. At least that’s what I’d want for her.

Watched the vlog...
AND OH BOY IT WAS A MESS.
At this point, I would just throw in the towel and focus on your web shows, spare the viewers the agony of watching your pitiful 11 minute vlogs with you obsessing over your skincare Annie :D

I'm so mad at both Billy and Katie. They allowed the death of their son to propel them to unsustainable fame, pimped out their daughters, put zero effort into a stable home life (and that could mean with divorced parents by the way), and now are letting it all crumble down at the expense of these two girls.
I hope they sell the LA house and move back to Maryland. Or sell both houses and move to whatever state their Nana lives in and start afresh. Girls in school and sports with REAL friends.

Unfortunately we know that that’s never going to happen. They will stay in that luxurious house until the bank takes it away from them. Like I said, even if they paid off the house, it’s a $16,000 yearly property tax and if they are on a decline, they won’t be able to afford that and remain living comfortably there.

I do agree that it seems like they are pushing their failure onto Annie specifically. She seems to want to keep this up and she seems to be at least trying but if next weeks vlog is choppy editing, with clips that have no context as to what we are watching, it’s just weird. Like at least Katie would somehow fill us in on what was going on that day so if and when those clips came up, we knew, oh right, they had this this and this on the schedule today. But it was like Annie in the car, talking solely to herself/camera, clips of Hayley swimming and then a bunch of random clips of people hanging out. Which i don’t find entertaining because you have know idea what they are talking about and it’s hard to really pay attention when three people are talking. Especially when you’re not there. Just seemed like a mess of clips badly edited together. No one found Annie playing trash basketball to be entertaining? Funny, neither did I.

How many more weeks do we give them if this content is what is to be expected before they are irrelevant?

This isn't going to last into the next couple of months I'm pretty sure. They once did 20-30 minute DAILY vlogs. Now, it's 11 minutes for a whole week? It's done.

We've all seen the dying flames of this channel for awhile now. And we're watching the end arrive.

I can still hold on to hope that once this is all over, they will eventually get the girls back into a good education and healthy environment for their psychosocial development, but we'll see. I really do want the best for Annie and Hayley; they're just children in the grand scheme of things.

I haven’t looked at the comments today, but last night they were bad. The last few Vlogs there have been some negative comments, but this last one was surprising. Seems like even the most die hard fans are like wtf?! Last week they were saying “it will be longer and better content because it will be the whole week” now they are like “I waited all week for this?”

Also, someone mentioned a while back that the kids like seeing the happy family. That maybe those kids have it rough at home and seeing the Leblancs was comforting to them somehow. I can really see that now. As much as they all “stan” Annie there were so many kids complaining that it was ALL Annie and that it was supposed to be a FAMILY vlog.

Side note: I am watching an old vlog where they went to Disneyland... y’all these people are ridiculous. First of all to compare, Disneyland is NEVER nearly as crowded as Disney World is... like ever. I know cause I like to go on the apps and look at wait times and compare and Disney World is always way more crowded on any given day.

These people have to have a tour guide so they can skip the lines. Y’all. That’s $400-$750 AN HOUR for one of those. So in one day. Say they stay 6 hours and the tour guide cost was $600, that’s $3,600 JUST TO SKIP THE DAMN LINES... these people have no idea how to save money. They had this another time they went to Disney. Just stand in line like everybody else. The lines aren’t that friggin long. You don’t need a tour guide every time you go to Disneyland. Get some fast passes for the popular rides and stand in line for the less popular rides. Why do they act like they are some huge ass celebrities that need a bodyguard to stay with them in Disney?! They are so ridiculous.

The worst part of the group shot with the Brat kids was that even Annie was half out of frame. So it was that Good Luck Charlie girl, half of Annie's face, and then a bunch of torsos.
I agree that seeing the "happy family" is important to a lot of the fans. It's what got Shaytards so famous, and you can see in the comments a lot of times where kids will say that they wish their families were like the family they're watching. The sad thing is that they don't see the cracks in the facade. They believe that the edited vlog is the real family.

What the minions don't get (and probably understandably so due to their ages) is that if this channel takes a shit, the Leblanc's lifestyle goes with it. Literally. It'll take a few shorts months and the lavishness is gone. Even sadder is neither of the parents has squat to back it up (to provide for the kids). This is what makes me angry next to the usual lousy parenting.

The Leblanc's might have to go on Dr. Phil's show in the coming years. :rofl:

I wonder if Billy and Katie even get that. You would think that with views going down, they would be trying to put out _better_ content, not slack off. Because I doubt they have enough savings to support this lifestyle long term. If they aren't getting views, people aren't going to watch the Brat shows, and they aren't going to buy her music or bracelets. And she is not going to make it outside of YouTube. They can't seriously believe she has the talent to support their lifestyle. Plus, most of what she might make from Nick or Disney would have to be put aside. They wouldn't have free access to it like YouTube earnings.

So what will happen to their lavish house when this channel takes it’s massive dump? They can’t afford that house. Even if this lifestyle crashes. Even if they paid that house in full. I have to believe that K & B are literally banking on that Maryland house selling to finance the one that they have. But they took it off the market. So how can they sell it if it is not on the market?

I am just curious what will happen to that house when they are at their rock bottom. I think we ALL and even some of the minions would agree, that this is the beginning of the end. It’s obvious to see. No one wants the Annie show when they are used to the whole family. Like someone pointed out (Mark, was it you?) that their channel has declined like the Sheikra rollercoaster (has a 90 degree drop). So we all know the ground is next.

Waiting a week for what we saw last night, when kids are used to 15-30 minute DAILY vlogs and now they are less than 12 minutes mostly about Annie talking about her skin care and her nails and how she’s gonna become the next Les Paul with her inch long acrylics, kids aren’t gonna tick around for that. They will maybe give a month or two before the decline happens again. I just can’t see this style lasting another year. Especially leaving it at the hands of Annie. She will either get lazy and not vlog or not edit.

She might as well stick to her Brat shows and ride it until they let her go. That’s about all they have to fall back on now. I wonder if even they know that their channel is dead?

I think they are hoping to rely on:
People watching her shows
Buying or streaming her music
Buying her Merch that she never promotes
Ppl watching old vlogs to relive the good old days
And ppl tuning in to the new vlogs even if that is a small number of viewers. 200k is still $2,000 a video. Granted with weekly vlogs that’s $2000 a week or $8000 a month, just under $100,000 a year.

How much do you think they are making now to afford that house assuming that they need the money from their MD house to afford that house. I’m just wondering if they will be able to live long term in that house or if they will be forced to downsize simply to sustain living period nvm living in one of the most expensive cities in America.

Seriously, though. Billy is long gone from the military or navy or whatever it was, and he was never high-ranking anyway. Katie's only credit on her CV is working at Blockbuster. Not many of those around anymore...

I once read somewhere that 20% of parents divorce after the loss of a child, so even if they do end up divorcing, it’s not very surprising

Isn’t there one blockbuster left? Or did that close?

I’d watch a show of Katie going back to work there.
