Quote Chillyfan25: Chloe's priorities were where they were supposed to be when Delia was in the hospital, on DELIA. Chloe is hardly the devil for being concerned for her daughter's health and welfare cansidering she almost died not that long ago. She called Billy, Delia's father, which was appropriate. Should she have called Kevin sooner? Sure. But I can't fault her for being too concerned with Delia to be pulled away from her bedside to make a phone call.
If Victoria was so concerned about Billy she would perhaps set up meetings, attend with him. But nope. She just judges on that predestal she has placed herself upon. And frankly, for someone who says he wants his wife back Billy sure isn't working too hard at getting there.
OMG you are so funny, can't stop lauging, set up a meeting for him, Yeah that would work, LOL, you can't force an addict to quit, lol
Chloe can look out for Delia, but Victoria can't look out for Johnny, his gambing can put everyone in danger
Billy wants to quit FOR Victoria, he needs to want to quit for himself, love does not beat out addiction, even though it did for about 4 months (how long he has been feeling the pull to gamble again)
Victoria did not go running to daddy, SHE Thought the ranch was empty
Billy can't stop gambling FOR anyone but himself.
That being said, Victoria would not "schedule" a meeting for him, if you are referring to a GA meeting.
She could check online, newspaper, etc. to find the next available meeting, time, place, etc.. That's the procedure for meetings in GA.
She could also get actively involved in GAM-ANON, which is the support group for GA that teaches families of loved ones with a gambling problem the proper way to deal with that particular addition.
Also, there are "open" and "closed" meetings in addiction support groups. The "closed" meetings are for addicts only.
The "open" meetings are for the addicts and their families as well. Families are not only invited but encouraged to participate.
As far as "scheduling" a private addiction specialist for him, that she could and IMO should do that at the very least.
Her behavior is anything BUT supportive. If Billy were in a the great state of DENIAL her behavior would be appropriate, however he has admitted he has a problem, which is the 1st step in any recovery program.
It was at that point in time her behavior should have been to assist in his recovery, unless of course she doesn't give a rats behind what happens to him.
I used to love Billy and Victoria as a couple. No more. I want the old Billy back. The cocky, self confident Billy. Victoria has emasculated him. If I see the old Billy with Chloe then I am all for that!
