    Keisha is getting on my nerves getting away with TOO MUCH! Unrealistic!!! I can't watch her anymore

  • Christene Jones Clarkston, MI

    Who is Keisha? Is she somebody's wife? She can't act that well, but you let her get away with so much. She is not accountable for her actions. Now you bring her back acting the same way. Funny she isn't. Why couldn't Richard win? She was the wrong one. I love you Tyler Perry, but your show is so incomplete and poorly written. I am very supportive of our young black men in their endeavors, please write it better for the other wonderful actors you have on the show.

      I logged in to post a comment, and I almost fell out of my chair when I read yours, I was just about to write the SAME THING!

      Christene from Clarkston very well said and so on point.

    I am about to stop watching. There is no way that you are writing that Kesha continues to get by with everything she does. There were several ways she could have been caught, the bank had camera's that was not used and many others. Then in court you have this man paying child support for a child that's not his child and they all including the child recently found out who her own father was. This is getting to be a bit much. My sister has already stopped watching. I love you Tyler but you are taking the Kesha story a little out in left field. Please do something about it. I still love you Tyler. Oh and Kandice is playing out as well on the other show.

      I agree with you 100%. It isn't realistic for Keisha to get away with so much. Her role needs to die.

    • Diana Texas #2094117

      Just what I was going to say and that annoying audience laugh has got to go they use it after every line really it's not that funny .I am about to stop watching as much as I love Tyler Perry.

  • Darryl United States

    This show been on for four years and still we haven't had any guest stars from the movie ''Why Did I Get Married ?'' so can we please have some guest star from the movie on this show please Tyler ? Jill Scott, Janet Jackson someone anyone! Tyler

    • Derrick #2094054

      I agree. I have been wanting to see Jill Scott too and the guy that played her j*** of an ex-husband on the show to stir up trouble.

  • Sheryl Las Vegas, Nevada

    I was a cheerleader for this show until they allowed Keisha to get EVERYTHING including half of Richard's part of the business - I am so done with this show!!!

  • jewell Bryant United States

    Kiki Haynes is the worst actress Tyler Perry has casted. She makes people not want to watch the show "For Better or Worse". Please eliminate her role if you don't want ratings to contiue dropping.

  • Gayle Folcroft, PA

    Please don't keep Keisha for long. Let her get her money and move on. Don't let her take Richard or the rest of them down. Tyler, please don't let the gold digger win. Please find a loophole to make her have nothing. She played on Malcolm in the movie. Please get rid of her

  • Monique Delk Cleveland

    I really enjoy all of your shows on OWN. I especially love Ms. Hattie but I have a question about For better or worst. The actress that plays the doctor on For better or worst is that Keisha, kiki Haynes, with black hair?

  • Yvette United States

    Tyler Perry - what happened? The writers for this show have made it so unrealistic and the show has become boring and not believable. Were the writers changed? I used to ensure that I watched the program every week, but now I will turn to it for a few minutes and then go to something else. Michael Jai White seems to be losing touch with reality with his almost nonchalant attitude and patterned phrases. The acting has become so predictable.

  • Walt Rosehill NC

    Did the show come on last night? 4-4-15

  • Keith Burks northridge
