I'm Asian, but definitely too young to be Maia and Alex's mother.
I'm a huge Shibutanis uber, but I'm not so blind to see their struggles and mistakes. That Peruvian short dance? A bad idea. I though their Geisha FD was gorgeous, but I can see how judges perceived it wasn't out of the box.
I find it puzzling how people don't think that a comment that hints that these two used money/connections/whatever to get to the World team isn't a bit mean spirited, or worse, libelous. If it's helicopter mom of me to point that out, I guess that's what I have to live with.
