Kayee Lovey decided to join her new boyfriend, Jerry Philippeau, and his ex-wife, Jessica, in the Chicago home they share with their kids.

Kayee might have fallen head over heels for the fifty-something — but it's uncertain how well she will fare when it comes to taking care of the family.

"We don’t have anything in common," Jessica said. "Kay seems occupied with her own needs, not those of the family as a whole."
