You know what they say "karma is a BITCH".
Yesterday she was acting like she didn't know anyone. (Atlanta Flood) Now she expects everyone to feel for her. Tell her to go back to the gay club. She looks like a Tranny anyway.
I will leave all of MY sympathy for the mans children.

There is something you all need to know about JohnH. He goes from site to site saying hateful things about black people. First of all he lives in TX and has his tongue up George Bush A$$-hole. 2nd he said that he use to look at black guys dongs in the lockeroom when he was in high school. He's on all the blog site OMG and the list goes on and on. His mother left his family for a black man. And then his Cousin/wife kicked him out of his trailor. So he is mad at the world.

Kandi is my favorite housewife on the show, I love her, she is the only true one and she does not deserve what is happening to her.

Good riddance, besides it's happened in da dirty south, and da atl is no place to boast about living....kandi should watch her own back, and her momma should be feeling somewhat gleeful, her prayers have been answered!...And as a reminding to all black women don't ever mold your own lives from the housewives of atl...they are living proof you really can't take a gold digging hoe and expect a loving and faithful housewife!

Mrs. Rita why did you make it a point to say that the show should be canceled because White women are dating married men. That's dum and he had a checker past

The things these broads do for ratings. Kim and Big Poppa probably took out a hit on AJ.

My heart truely goes out to Kandi and AJ children, from what i saw on the show she really did love him. I know her heart is heavy but always remember: When someone you love becomes a memory that memory becomes a treasure.....

reality check    

Please remember someone has lost their life, this is a tragedy, this isn't about ratings, people do a reality check before someone you love falls victim to the same tragedy. Didn't your mothers teach you if you don't have anything good to say don't say anything at all
