When it rains it pours. There is a lesson in all this. Liston for the quiet voice. Then heed! Empathy... Jen had a lot going on too...

It appears Anthony made the smart choice between the sisters. I hope Sylvia has a good support system and many friends. Evelyn- anything for the camera and drama.

You people are pathetic and should be treated the same way you are treating Evelyn when you lose a loved one. Sorry for your lost Evelyn and may Anthony Rest in Paradise.

I'm sorry for your lose, I'm also sorry for whats going on with you and your new husband as will. I would like to ask you something did you think that, your husband would get fired? after what happen. But the funny thing is on the show in your womanly way you told him if he would do the do with some other women, you told him to use them. Are you up set because you found something that showed you that he was ****ing around. Or did you feel like you gave him the pass to do that after you and him spoke about him use-ing them. Women all over stop telling your men if you do, do something use one, that's given them a pass.. Sorry for them it is. I do hope you and him work things out and may he find a new job. And you and him need to talk because millions of dollars are on the line.
