wow what a fantastic lifestyle you have and wonderful people too! I have just viewed trading spouses here in Australia and feel like I know you guys already. ZZ is absolutely adoreable and if I am ever lucky enough to visit the U.S.A. I will certainly call in to say gidday ! I feel so sorry for Barbras kids - they seem so brainwashed and did u notice the thumbprint in her husbands head ??!! That is not living - it's barely an existance. To you guys Dianne and Diego, I applaud you for a job well done, you have raised such a little champion, and the opportunities you have given ZZ is amazing. Love to meet you all one day !! cheers lorraine (Adelaide, South Australia)
Just saw a replay of Trading Spouses last night and had to post. The Loupe family displayed patience, class and true hospitality towards a very holier-than-thou woman with the worst attitude I have ever seen. Obviously, she totally missed that ZZ was depressed because he had to deal with her! I feel for her poor kids.
People can talk about the supposed racism and bigotry that permeates the South, but I didn't get that vibe AT ALL from the Loupe family. Ironically, I thought that the open-minded liberal from California was quite bigoted as she was looking down her nose at people from Louisiana since she made that nasty comment about Diana's clothes being out of style. Apparently, Barbara cannot get past a person's physical appearance and that speaks volumes about her!
My husband and I have always wanted to go to New Orleans and once our boys are a little older, we are headed that way and we will definitely be visiting Zam's Swamp Tours. Much love from Miami, Florida to Diego, Diana and ZZ!!
I felt so sorry for your husband Diego,.. and I really felt bad for poor ZZ,.. That kid is amusing! He is so articulate! In tune with his true honest self,... With a well managed meadow personality, and for being so young!! You and your family and friends are doing a great job! I thought your friends were very polite to the girl from California,.. I was glad to see that Diego was so in touch with his son's feelings that he was sleeping on the sofa with ZZ to comfort him. I hope other Father's were watching.
We will plan to come visit your Swamp Tours sometimes this summer,.. You are an Angel and your husband is a Saint!! Your son is the Lucky Chirrup Angel, It sure is refreshing and encouraging to have witnessed such strength of character in your life!! You are a wonderful person,..
It sort of hurt my feelings when Barbara Gates said the Louisiana is "behind the times",.. That is Odd! I was born and raised in New Orleans,.. My husband and I traveled for a bit, we lived in California,.. Even California people will tell you that it is full of "Fruits and Nuts",..
I wasn't raised with a mother, I always tried to do my best,.. With God's help,.. But YOU! You Lady are amazing!!! May God continue to bless you and your loved ones,..

Please never change. I just watched "trading spouses" and hands down you showed that snobbish vegan hypocrite that manners and kidness weighs far better than judging and dogma. I love your family, especially ZZ; he is smarter than a California snob!
Just seen the show Traiding Spouses on T.V. My family was amazed at how wonderful and kind hearted you and your family was. We are in ah with ZZ, he is so smart and loving. Barbra is so shallow, what a hippicrit she is. We have never been to the Bayou but now we are all planning to save and take a trip to your place. Thank you for being you and we look foward to seeing y'all soon. Misty
Loupe family can hold your heads high!What a great bunch of laid back,live for today people y'all seem to be!ZZ is an awesome kid!What fun he seems to have in his daily life.Lucky!
The Californians were all crazy,mean spirited and quick to judge.My family and I will be visiting Louisiana for our next vacation and would turn down a free trip to Cali.ZZ you and your family/friends rock!
I just watched you on Trading Spouses. Diana...you are truly a classy southern lady!! You went into that show trying to learn new cultures and respected that family in California through all of their narrow and opinionated ways. Barbara was the rudest person I have ever seen on any of these shows. She did not even try to understand your culture and lifestyle, but expected you to live theirs, which you did with much grace and class!!
I just watched Trading Spouses and want to say that you are a "True Lady". I am a "city" cajun, and was so proud of your attitude. I just hope the California person watches the show and sees how truely rude she was. You made "Cajun" a proud name. Always remain a genteel cajun lady and take care of your family. You and your family can be proud of the way all of you handled being on the show. Kudos to ZZ and Diego. A Boudreaux from Lafayette
I have lived in Cajun country before and fine the Loupe family to be the epitome of Cajun genitlity. Kudos to Diana for the way you treated the Vegans. I applaud Diego for not sending that closed minded fruitcake back to the nuthouse on the first day. I love ZZ's laugh. I am trying to talk my husband into taking me to see ya'll soon. Keep it up!!!
