Other than the fact that yet another Tyler Perry megasoap did well, it aint much to recognize

This show is so terrible but Tika Sumpter is a goddess so big ups to her

I am so disturbed by what my people choose to watch for entertainment.

My Dad included. He watched this bullshit and thought I was the one to talk to about it. DON'T THINK SO.

what's so bad about it? I like nighttime soap operas, I was going to give it a try

TYLER PERRY'S The Haves And The Have Nots

Believe it or not before I knew he was involved I was going to watch it to support Pa Kent from Smallville.

I really dig Joe Schneider (although I can't deal with his politics). He's an immensely likeable presence on screen (and a good blogger, too).

Nothing. It's trashy fun, with bad acting, like all soaps.

OMG What's new with Bobbi Kris? Also, I think I need to watch this show from the beginning because I tried watching this last week and was so confused.

I hope this becomes another soap classic with 8723923 seasons, everything about this show is hilarious - the title, the font, Tyler Perry, OWN/Oprah's Approval, #TooDarnHot LMAO

What is this show about anyway? Tyler Perry's name is on it so I'll probably never watch it,

married man sleeps with escort, later finds out escort is the man's daughter's best friend with the escort's [somewhat estranged] mom working for married man as a maid.

drama ensues.

I'll pass.

ps: I never replied to your job thing, have you tried looking elsewhere outside of GA? Im sorry sis but you may just have to leave your state for a job in Finance. Although, Atlanta is a hub for a lot of huge companies.

Come to Boston!

i'd love to move there, but i couldn't afford it.

one day!

The cost of living here is fucking ridiculous to be honest and the guys are fucking entitled cunts with zero personality. Chicago I heard was awesome but the weather is a deal breaker, you should consider somewhere like Baltimore or even Washington DC? DC is basically all young professionals and it's not that expensive to live.

Or do you want to stay in Georgia. (No disrespect but why would you?)

The insults that the white couple throw at each other are hilarious! Fitz and Mellie who? This show is pure trash and they still have the same problems with unnecessarily long scenes and bad dialogue. And only 1/4 of the cast can act. But I wouldn't have it any other way at this point.
lovedhurtlost 8th-Jan-2014 10:55 pm (UTC)
This shit is pure entertainment! I love it.

Amanda is so pitiful. I'm glad Candace is playing her. She deserves it for being so naive.

Veronica is a complete bitch. I wonder what she's going to do to turn Jeffrey's father against him.

Jeffrey's arms! Unf. I love how he read Candace so easily. I don't trust her, but I like that she took him in. I'm looking forward to whatever type of "friendship" grows between them. Lol @ her saying she was going to pimp him out. Bitch was so serious.

It's looking like Hanna is going to keep quiet about Wyatt's involve my in the two hit and runs. Smh

Looks like Jim is going to threaten Jeffrey's father because Wyatt was driving Jeffrey's car that night. Shit should be interesting.

I can't wait for next week >:)
