    Why is the season for, For Better or Worse so short? Will there be more of a storyline with Marcus daughter? Angela's pregnancy?

    I would love to see Richard take her to court and sue her for a hostile work environment and harassment.

      I agree this season is unbelievably short ... a lot of people are beginning to disfavor the show because of Richards injustice ... Tyler needs to bring Richard & Keisha back together, or quickly change the plot so that Richard can regain his assets

    Dear Tyler, I had just begun enjoying this show with the story line of Pam. I was looking forward to seeing her character developed. But you've lost me with Angela's pregnancy. You have too many story lines going in this show. Complete the Richard and Keisha story line. Allow Keisha to work out her issues because she has some serious issues and develop the story lines you've already started! Develop more of the characters in this already large, too large, cast! Stop adding new story lines. It's making the show too cumbersome!

    I agree with everyone here including the woman who said she doesn't condone a man putting his hands on a woman but cheered when Richard finally stood up for himself. I agree that a man shouldn't hit a woman but I also agree no one should hit anyone. My mom used to tell my sisters if you think you're has enough to hit a man be prepared for the consequences. Sometimes a man can snap without thinking. My husband watches the bow with me and said Mr. Perry is unrealistic on this show. Did anyone remember Keisha had something to do with Richard not receiving his phone call about the time change for court? That's tampering and she should pay for that; they all know she did it yet no one said anything. Same thing with Todd not saying Keisha was pushing Richard's head before he slapped the mess out of her. I'll tell you something if a woman did that to my husband he may have a reaction as well not me, I don't do that sort of thing. But the domestic violence awareness is taken too far and in the wrong context. Women can also be guilty of domestic violence so let's not forget it. Plus why would Richard be so weak? It's just unrealistic. Mr. Perry please write the way we know you can and not this madness you keep putting out. The whole Richard and Keisha story sucks and isn't true to life. I mean come on Mr. Perry, you have a lot of money as well, would you end up that way? If they are business men, then make them true to life. I mean what would you and Ms.Winfrey have done to protect yourselves?

    Hi Tyler i'm get straight to the point I don't believe in men hitting women but I also don't believe in women hitting and provoking a man to hit them . I really don't like this story line , Richard should not have loss his business or have to pay her all that money. Other than that I love the show.

      I think you're totally sending the wrong message with this Keisha/Richard scenario. There will be a lot of weak minded, silly women who think they can pull off some of the antics of Keisha and end up dead. I totally agree that there is never a reason for anyone to put their hands on anyone in anger, even Keisha who put her hands on Richard first. Domestic violence is not only physical abuse but mental and emotional which Keisha demonstrated on all levels. And then to try and make a Domestic Violence declaration, didn't fit. There are women out there who are getting beat for no reason, looking at a man so the abuser thinks, didn't vacuum in straight lines, etc. To put this in the same category as someone who is conniving and manipulative is unconscionable. You missed the mark totally on this one. Men have feelings too.

  • Nika

    I used to really enjoy this show and I am glad to see I am not the only one confused. I definitely agree that Richard should not of hit Keisha. But why isn't it being addressed that she putting her hands on him first. First she receives a very unrealistic (in my opinion) settlement and she has now continually harassed and berated this man. You are really losing me Tyler, I will be so glad when this storyline is done and over with.

  • Monica Houston Texas

    I've never heard of getting 100% in a divorce settlement that's Surrender not settlement. Now Keisha took everything from Richard It wasn't right for him to hit her, but come on what did she expect? The man felt he didn't have nothing to lose. Texas? No Kids? She'd vwalk away with zip. He keeps everything he had before They got married. Anything they had after the I do's is up for grabs but everything he owns including what he had before he Said I do to the Queen B? Here in Texas? Absolutely no way You don't get rich behind divorce here. And there certainly Is no entitlement just cause you was a wife. I'm waiting for Keisha to get hers

  • Byron

    This show is so confusing. I don't understand why Todd did not explain to everyone that Keisha put her hands on Richard. Why does that seem to be okay? While I agree that a man should never put his hands on a woman to inflict pain or injury, a women should be held to those same standards. This used to be one of my favorite shows. Now not so much.

  • Shannon Fulghem Lees Summit

    I used to LOVE this show. Couldn't wait to watch it. Keisha's character is horrible. The way she treats the others on the show is a shame. Unless this direction changes I will no longer be able watch it. Most black people that I know don't act the way you have these characters behave.

    Keisha doesn't own 1/3 of the company She only owns 1/2 of Richard’s 1/3, which is only 1/16. Marcus owns 1/3 – and Joseph owns 1/3. Richard used to own 1/3 of the company. now Richard only owns 1/16 and Keisha owns 1/16, which equals 1/3. You put all that together and it becomes 100%, So the three guys own most of the shares in the company. Keisha only owns 1/16 of 100% - not much when you think of it. So why does she have so much power? And plus, do you really think these man didn’t have a Lawyer who handles all of their legal issues who would have protected the company from Keisha’s lil power, but let’s not forget – it is TV – Haha, and Keisha’s corner is funny - lol.

    Yeah Angela!!! A new baby - that will show Keisha that Marcus and Angela are MARRIED with CHILDREN I love you Marcus and Angela!!! Show folks how to stay married - you can argue and disagree and then makeup - its called communication - that's how folks stay married I wish that someone taped all the times that Keisha taunted and pushed Richard - so that he can sue her behind and get his stuff back. But truthfully neither Keisha nor Richard can let stuff go - that's how people really get hurt. I wish Richard had done more to Keisha because he is going to jail without proof that she provoked him. Please let someone come up with tapes on her actions - please

    • Carolyn Stephens Texas #2150231

      Point Blank, there is know way Keisha should have gotten all that she has from Richard. Richard had all of this before he married Keisha so I don't understand how she can be awarded, by the judge what Richard already had when he married her. This is very unrealistic. He should be able to take her back to court and get all that belonged to him before she came into his life.
