    Tyler Please bring Chris back. I loved the way he loved Leslie. He showed how a man should love a woman. Not to say he was fine...... Bring Chris back PLEASE>>>>>>>>

      For Better or Worse was a little better this week. I agree though, Chris & Leslie need to get back together. Please bring Chris back.

      I agree bring Chris back I don't like Joseph and Leslie together their life together is boring. Chris was great and their live was gud. Leslie and Joseph a no go and the way it's dragging on and on episode after episode is just too much. This is wut we expected to happen based upon the show itself but it does nothing for audience. Leslie needs to appear more interested in Chris wen they are together. He is so handsome and fine and yet she just wants to smack him on the l*** like she is afraid of him but is more in to it wen she kisses Joseph. I luv the show but right now it seems that is just dragging out to long with each character with no real excitement.

    I LOVE TASHA!!!! SHE STAYS FLY NO MATTER WHAT!!! With that being said, BRING CHRIS BACK!!! The situation between him and Leslie came and went too fast, clean and easy. There's no real drama! We NEED MORE DRAMA. Also, I understand cliffhangers but sometimes simple plots take too long to peak and then end. AND WHAT HAPPENED TO JENNIFER AND HER DRAMA??? She slept with that guy with HIV but it was never resolved as to what her results were. So for the future, bring Chris back and make Leslie come to her senses, get Joseph a girl, but keep a small flame lit between he and Leslie; clear things up with Jennifer (like bring a temporary guy into her life where she has to talk about what happened with the last guy with HIV) that's simple; Tasha and Marcus need some drama just a little, and DO NOT let Kiesha win! No matter what, it's easier to make her loose because that can go many ways!! These are just my food for thoughts. I know it's your show Mr Perry, I'm just and outsider looking in. DSB

      I agree that Jennifer needs more things going in her life. I think Joseph is a true a-hole, but he is realistic and so is Keisha! :-)

    Where does Angela clothes come from?

    Hello, Mr. Perry. I enjoy most of your movies and television shows. Everything is not for everyone, but that's okay. A little something for most. Ok, I like FBOW, but I don't like the Keisha character. As someone else said, please don't let her win. Also, I'd like to see Leslie and Chris back together. Can we get some true inter-ethnic love on TV. Yes, I said inter-ethnic not interracial because there is truly only one race-human! I commend you, sir, because you keep some folk working. Much love to you. God bless. Dee T.

    • Peggy Iowa #1887254

      I agree with Dee. Keisha's character is probably one that we are supposed to love to hate. But I don't love to hate the character, I just don't like so much of her in the show. And I also agree about the follow up on Jennifer as someone posted.

  • RaVanda IL.

    It's a great day today Tyler, but I must agree with some of your fans post. Leslie did not committ to her marriage. Usually, rich men are smart, they will not allow themselves to get caught up with a tramp. She gave Joseph the milk, he refuse to buy the cow, so let them both stay in the barn together. This makes our black women look cheap, and desperate. Now, may our God continue to Bless you until you are better paid, in Jesus mighty name.

    Your successes are amazing as well as your work ethic. I've read many positive comments about you, your life and your work. I believe it is your Christian background, your desire to succeed and the love you received as a child that catapulted you to be a success. I have a story that I have been considering and would like to 'run' it by you if you don't mind. I have tried to write it many times before but it is very 'close' to me and I just cannot get through it with any success. It is always with me and I believe that once I get it out, I can go on with my life in a more peaceful way. I just need an outlet, some advice, and/or some discouragement, that is, of a person who has experience and knowledge about successful stories or true life. Thanks for even considering to contact me.

  • LINDA YOUNG United States

    take kiesha and todd off the show

    • Beejcee Missouri #1887058

      I think their characters can be written much differently without taking away from who they are; Keisha can still be the gold digger that she is just write better stories. Todd, what intern isn't silly? Tone him down a little he has pretty good timing so he does not have to speak to get a point in, sometimes his expressions and gestures are enough!

  • Latasha Chicago

    I really like the show but I feel Leslie should stay with Chris she didn't even try to work on the marriage. Joseph had his chance and he wasn't willing to commit or marry her I feel you should keep Chris as a character on the show and him and Leslie go to counseling and get back together. Keep up the good work Tyler Perry I love all your work!

    • Bridget Canty #1886124

      I agree, Leslie treated her marriage like a drive through pickup, she didn't order. There's nothing likeable about Joseph, he had his chance and proved he was only interested in a sexual relationship, nothing long-term like marriage.

    • Cdp #1887334

      I agree and please don't let it take forever things tend to drag out much too long sometimes per situation on the show.
