    Waatchig last episodes on On Demand. I watched because I thought you would finally get Keisha under cotrol. She started the fight, she was physical and her mouth cuts like a sword. Her character is so awful that I'd stopped watching the show. Came across the description and I thought, FINALLY! Instead it's more of the same. I don't condone domestic violence against anyone but you've got to tell a more balanced story. I've been a victim myself so I get it. I was also raised to know that if you come at a man, like a man and you get treated like a man... Being a female doesn't give you the right to act like fool, to bully others (because that's what she does). The characters are not stupid people, there are a ton a ways to legally check someone like Keisha. Send me an e-mail when you finally deal with her madness. These shennangians are keeping people away from the show. This could have been a great meassage but it was told in such an uneven manner that the value is lost.

      I absolutely agree! With all the cameras in that establishment, you mean not one of them caught her pushing his head and saying the awful things she said? I can't believe that to be true. Right is right and wrong is wrong and she is wrong as two right feet! He was wrong for slapping her, no ifs, ands, or butts about it. She was wrong for initiating the first domestic abuse with the verbal lashings and then the physical head pushing a couple of episodes ago.

    Mr. Perry: after watching tonight's episodes, I was extremely angry, not at the characters, but at you and your writers. I in no way condone domestic violence, but I do not condone domestic violence from either party. Your Keisha character not only psychologically provoking your Richard character, but she was also physically abusive. She hit him FIRST!!! As a retired police officer, I have handled more than my share of domestic violence, and the one thing I know is that women have this skewed perception of the power they hold insofar of having the man arrested even if they hit him first, as Keisha did with Richard. Laws for assault and/or battery do NOT say that if a man hits a woman, he goes to jail; the laws state that the aggressor goes to jail. So, in this case, Keisha started the fight by poking Richard in the face. By law, Keisha should have gone to jail with Richard!!! While I applaud your efforts to advocate for the end of domestic violence, you need to advocate for both women AND men. Women need to be told that if you start a physical fight, there are only two outcomes: either you win, or you lose. You don't get the right to put the man in jail because you started a fight you could not win. Everybody needs to keep their hand to themselves. To take this a few steps further, men who are physically abused by women need to start having these women arrested. This, I assure you, would deter women so cavalierly physically provoking their situation.

      Carol White thank you, it angers me every time I see shows like this where they always show the woman as the victim. Keisha is one of those women that thinks that she can hit you but you better not hit me. My parents and grandparents taught me at an early age that men hit back. Mr. Perry I was highly displeased with this particular show because of the one sidedness. Richard also would be considered a victim of domestic violence verbally and physically and they both should have gone to jail. I understand where Mr. Perry was going with this but , you dropped the ball when Richard was only labeled the abuser and Keisha was the victim. We need to wake up and hold both parties accountable for their actions in situations like this. Mr. Perry do the right thing and show that domestic violence is wrong no matter if you are a man or woman.

    I don't think anyone (writers, Perry, Producers, ) even/ever reads our posts. You see how old those 'popular posts' are? They haven't even taken the time to update this page. Shows you how much they think of us! So I guess another show from Tyler Peryy will soon be gone...b/c if the first show of the new season - if there is one - has the same mess - I'M DONE!!!

    I agree that it's never ok to hit a woman: however, it's not ok to connive and unduly take from anyone. Keisha had done everything duspicable that women can do to a man, from accusing Marcus if being her child's father to now undeservedly getting evening from Richard who simply loved her. It's wrong for you to show her as a victim and one victorious in ruining Richard. Please show that we all are responsible to treat each other with love. Otherwise, I'm done!!

    I also want to add that the men on this show are a joke. Keisha almost got it right. Not only is richard weak but all the men on the show are weak and the women are conniving, silly baboons. Tyler has managed to make bafonnery out of all the casts of his shows, from meet the browns, to the other show with casts from why did i get married and now for better or worse. Comedy is not your forte, tyler. I'm so disappointed in what I saw tonight.

    This is a terrible show to watch. I kind of half watched the show leading up to keisha and richard getting involved so I'm not quite sure what's really happening. I watch if loving you is wrong faithfully and i just happened to ask my coworker if she watched for better or worse and she said she did. She explained it all to me and it makes me sick to my stomach to watch what i saw tonight. Everybody is skirting around the fact that keisha has used this man, antagonized him and belittled him and they all keep saying to richard to just talk it out. If richard commits suicide this would be a terrible ending for a good black man. If he kills keisha it would be a terrible ending for a good black man...although I do wish keisha would die. The cruelty and the out right hatred she is displaying to a man that loved her is absolutely crazy. Tyler this show can have no happy ending. I really hate this story line.

    I been a fan from day one an cant wait til seasons return. but im agreeing with everyone thats it not right for richard to put his hands on keisha but she put her hands on him more than one time on other shows. in tampa,fl both parties go to jail. I feel like you falling off of being real with some of the shows lately. remember where you came from an how it was to get where you got today as a strong african american man.

    Hi, I can honestly say I used to really love this show. One of the main problems is that it is just too short. I like the messages that you are putting behind each show but I'm seriously loosing interest. What Keisha took is a little too extreme. A huge house, 2 cars, 1/2 of Richards 1/3 of the business. He also has to pay all that child support and alimony. He's suppose to be a man with his own business, making a lot of money. Instead if you do the math he makes about 91 dollars a week. Most people make more than that in a day or two days or for some, 3days. For a man that works a full time job and owns his own business is doing really poor. When he was showing Marcus Todd and Joesph his check, Joesph said maybe the comma is in the wrong place. That means he went from more than 10,000 dollars every 3 months to 1100 every 3 months. He doesn't even have half of the money he had before. That's just not right to me. When you divorce, you take half. She took half of his income by taking half of his 1/3 of the business. This is not right. Once again, I love the show but this is really killing me because it's too degrading. A man works his whole life to loose it all except basically a little more that 1/10 of what he had in is income. That doesn't include his house, cars, 401k and what was in his bank account before then.
