Tired of waiting for a proposal from Joseph, Leslie has moved on to bigger and better things while staying focused on her career and her undying friendship with Angela. Keisha, Marcus’ ex- continues to cause a world of trouble for the group of friends and colleagues. And Jennifer and Todd are still as crazy as ever.

    Come on Tyler! I used to love this show. Not as much as "House of Pain," but I still loved it. Now it's all about Keisha and it's so drawn out. I can't even watch it anymore. I am a big fan of yours so I will watch your other shows.

    I have to drop this show. Too bad, because I watched it from the beginning. You should change the name to the Keisha show. Every subject revolves around her, and she is a bully. I don’t watch bully shows.

  • Veronica Oklahoma City ,Ok

    I used to really enjoy the show , but you just lost two loyal fan's . Keshia has got to go, whoever is writing this show now need to go with her. Tyler what the h*** is going on . I hope this is not the message you want your name associated with. Right now you are saying if you lie, cheat, crazy, you win. Good bye Tyler

    So Keisha lies cheats manipulates and gets rewarded? Seriously? I hope not too many kids/young adults watch this show. Are you trying to influence your younger viewers this behavior is ok? I used to enjoy watching. These days I squirm while watching. I hold out watching/waiting for Keisha to get hers although I must admit I am about to shut the door on this show. I am not a writer- I do think you should give me or some of your other viewers a chance for K to get hers w-out killing her off. Your current story line is killing your show. on another note the housekeeper is great. Should use her (and the kids) more.

    Seems as if I'm not alone with my feelings about For Better or for Worse being at its WORST currently. Tyler, as talented as you are, whoever you have this show in the hands of is making you look bad! Keisha cannot have that much control no where in this green earth, and by no way would 3 grown men with sense allow the nonsense to go on as it is. Also the other characters story lines seem to be hidden due to Keisha and her tomfoolery. JESUS take the wheel! Tyler take control!

    Hi Tyler Perry , I love all your show but for better or worse is getting extra stupid. I don't think whomever is writing for you. It is so crazy and not funny . Please start back writing you're own work if not . You will be losing ratings.

    Where are you going with this new season? Keisha is crazy beyond. She only is suppose to have 1/2 of Richard's half! How did she become 1/3 owners? The men look so weak! What Black men would take that! I have been a faithful fan for years but this is too much!

    I used to truly love this show and was so very happy when it was started back up on OWN. However, sadly I have to say that the show is getting to be a little ridiculous. It is seriously getting to be ridiculous. I am a huge fan of all your shows but I am very disappointed with this season and where the story line seems to be going. It just seems very unrealistic and foolish. Very disappointed.

    I love this show, but please come up with another storyline for "Keisha's" character. Making her a partner at "C-Sports" is not a good move for the show in my opinion. Also I don't understand why the show is being so lame in the fact that you have 4 bumbling idiot men, that can't seem to come up with a feasible idea to get rid of her. Why do you have to make ALL the men seem stupid when it comes to this one woman? It's time to spice up this show, and make Keisha disappear from "C-Sports" or I will soon lose interest in this show.

      The storyline is unbelievable. She only owns a half of a third, she has no power. It's shameful that these college educated men look stupid.

  • Vivian Orlando, FL

    This show used to be great but it is a little ridiculous that these 3 guys are being bullied by Keisha. Not very realistic that with her minority ownership, she dictates everything. Really? I am still watching because I am just waiting for Keisha to get hers. Also, the judge was really stupid.

    • Kathy winter haven #2121320

      I love the show but I don't like keshia but i love Angela and marcus and Joseph and leslie on my favorite show is when Angela and keshia fight and marcus and Joseph and leslie and Richard IN a escalade and driving to Angela and marcus mansion

  • teejay j texas

    I love keisha, she adds a certain flare to the show that the others don't have. However, the storyline is a bit superficial. Lets beef it up and stop dragging it out. The obsession over marcus needs to quit, maybe have her develop a play you against you friend/ex-husband role. That will get things to kickin. Put coco brown to work more. Her and keisha fighting. Taking up for her girl angela. Finally give us an elaborate wedding scene with joseph and old girl. They are boring and after the wedding loosen them up. More like you did on house of Payne. Now that was funny. Give ms d more scenes and a story line of her own to help things out.

    Please hurry up and do something about KEISHA . I dont like her,I think its awful how she everything from Richard and his company too. That's just not right and then he has too look at her everyday too.But he should have since enogh not too marry her either. I just dont want to watch the show anymore and you write the show to let Keisha manipulate eveybodynad has so every since she's been on the show.I know its your show but I just had to get it off my chest.
