Surprise number three: The Walterses have 12 children. (Okay, 11, but Parker acts like a kid anyway.) Now Jackie must trade her Type A personality and her New York City apartment for a Colorado ranch and all of Walter’s wild boys that come with it. Jackie is surrounded by the enemy: loud, dirty, annoying kids who have no concept of personal space. Granted, several of the older guys are absolutely gorgeous. But it’s still annoying. She is not conceited or boring, whatever one may say, but showing it is another matter.
