    Hello, my name is Rose Winnse, I'm from Canada. I want to inform you all that there is a spell caster that is genuine and real. I never really believed in any of these things but when I was losing Tarique, I needed him so badly. I found in a site consultant about DR AISABU spells and i ordered a love spell. 24 hours later,i got a phone call from him. Tarique was his old self again and wanted to come back to me! Not only come back, the spell caster opened him up to how much I loved and needed him. Spell Casting isn't brainwashing, but they opened his eyes to how much we have to share together and he came back confessing how much he loved me. I recommend anyone who is in my old situation to try it. It will bring you wonderful surprises as well as your lover back to you. The way things were meant to be." you can contact the spell caster on 's very nice and great spell caster, he can help you solve any problem contact him on his email. i promise you will share testimonies just like me.

    Mr. Perry, I don't know anything about how to make a TV show, but I know that something is wrong with FBFW. I'm not sure if you have the right ensemble cast. Maybe it's the combination of over acting and under acting, there's no real balance. Your characters are too loud or too much weave or too ghetto or too stupid or too dressed up and at the same time their characters don't seem developed enough to carry a show. I don't know. Sometimes I just roll my eyes. Truth is I just stopped watching. I like the idea of featuring an upscale Atlanta family and their friends, don't lose that. It's different, but I think you need better scripts, remove a few of the characters, probably Leslie and Joseph, too young, immature and naïve. In fact, I like the idea of a single, more mature female and a single more mature male, not living together or even dating, but perhaps there is lots of flirting and tension between them. They are friend of our main couple, but every time there's a gathering they are bringing different dates. I think Angela and Marcus can carry the show with extended family, especially cousins, and friends. Just my two cents...

      @Dee, I agree the show does need a change. Since we now know that it is over for Chris and Leslie, maybe it IS a good idea to lose the characters of Leslie and Joseph, at least for a while. In my opinion, there is nothing left of interest (with those two).

      I agree! The only reason there was the abililty to create this show is because fans want more of Tasha Smith after the movies she was in. We wanted to see more of Angela and Marcus and their relationship outside of the vacation trips with friends. We wanted to see how they raise their children and deal with the issues in their lives. All of the accessory friends and their relationships are actually not at all interesting to us...unless their situations are directly related to Angela and Marcus. In the movie, Angela mentioned something about a brother (why havent we seen him in the sitcom in some capacity) There was also a scene in the sitcom where Angela was going out and MJ was going to the car where his grandmother was waiting for him to babysit him. (why havent we see grandma yet in the sitcom in some capacity) I think the absolute BEST episodes are the ones that focus on Angela, Marcus and MJ and the day to day family situations. We would love to see more with MJ, his aunts and uncles, his friends, his school, his extracurricular activities, Angela and her mothers relationship, does Angela have a father...what is the relationship there, what about Marcus family, does he have brothers or sisters, do they have kids, who are MJ cousins and what is he getting into with them, what about Marcus parents MJ paternal grandparents, what is the relationship there... THESE are the things the fans want to see in FBOW, not a whole season devoted to Leslie/Joseph and that wedding mess! Just an opinion....

    Hi Tyler- Tyler I have enjoyed every show or play that I have seen of yours but, this one For Better or Worst I don't care for some of the characters in the show. Angie is straight out boring all she says is Marcussss 50 times through out the whole show I would like to here her say something else sometime. I think Leslie is a good actor, Joseph yes he acts childish but I like watching him. Marcus is o.k. but him and Angie I don't know. During the first season they were the bomb I don't know what happen just not funny any more. Have and Have Nots is just great characters and all.

    Well I feel loke Leslie not 100% over him. Everyone thinks dat dey shpuldnt get bak together but, i personally think dey should. I think dat Leslie and Joseph learned there lesson. She called that man Joseph on there honey moon. She prayed dat he recover from da bike accident in the mox of she love him so mich. She was at the hospital whenshe shpuld have been getting married. He kiss her she koss him back. Chris been gone since the wedding. A man that have not had sex woth his own wofe at least a week pr two later to me i would feel loke he out doing him. He aint tryim to spend time with her. I think dey shpuld get the wedding annulled. Bcus dey can bcus of npt havim sex yet. I been there and done that with a man i kno how iy feels to be truley in love with someone and it dont go away that easy. If God can give a man another chance so can this woman. This only happen once and again its not loke he cheated or beat on her. If you gomna not be with a man because he he didnt marry u bcus he wasnt ready or he wasnt ready yet or bcus he not ready to have a baby yet den u dnt deserve to be with anybody. He might have said a couple of wrong things out his mouth but he didnt beat on her or anything. I thhink Joseph is ready now. And sometimes it takes a break and to c yur woman or man to move om to wake up. And i think Joseph woke up. He is in love with Joseph and Joseph is in love with Leslie. And dats. enough to try to make thingsbwork. At first they didnt kno that but now they do. Me peronally dnt think dat Joseph is a bad actor at all. Bcus outter a group of friend r of dem will b different and Joseph os different. So Mr Perry u got the right people.

    Almost thought that I wasn't going to follow the show, but decided to tune in (heart too loyal not to at least "try" it). I actually love this season most/best of all thus far. I also love to see the way each of the Actors skills/talents have improved. And I laugh even without the laugh button cued. :-p I thought that I was only going to be anxious about Tuesday's, but I believe Wednesday's are going to be cool too! Thanks for sharing! ;-)

    Joseph is a poor actor, I dislike his role in this show. I don't think it was wise to go off an marry Chris but joseph dam sure is last person she should go back to.

      I think he learned from his mostake and everyone deserve a second chance. So i think Leslie and Joseph should get back together slowly but before the season ends. Its not like he cheated on her or something

    Leslie was wrong wrong wrong for marrying Chris! I don't care how upset she was with Joseph, she had no right going through with the marriage. It was clear as day that she was still in love with Joseph, and sure she was trying to convince everyone that she loved Chris and that he was the one she wanted to spend the rest of her life with, but we all know she was just trying to convince herself and make a point to Joseph. She spent four years of her life with Joseph loving him, ended the relationship because he refused to marry her, shortly after the breakup got into another relationship with an old friend/flame Chris, Chris loved her so he asked her to marry him, the light-bulb in her head went off -> Chris is a man who loves me and WANTS to marry me -> I want to get married -> so why not??? Next thing we know she's marrying Chris (regardless of the fact that he's an old friend) about 6 months after ending a 4 year relationship with Joseph who she was seriously in love with, and everyone is surprised that she was calling out Joseph's name on her wedding night with Chris??? Be mad at Joseph all you like, Leslie is the dog here because she married Chris 5% because she loved him and 95% because she was fed up with Joseph and wanted to teach him a lesson. The worst part is, Chris never pressured her into anything. He was always patient and understanding and always asking her if she was sure she was ready, or if she was sure that was what she wanted. He even made the decision to call off the wedding, but like a fool she let it happen even though she was never really 100%. Even when she was getting dressed for her wedding she was thinking of Joseph. So how could she get married to a man while her head was consumed by thoughts of another man? And people are calling her strong??? She would’ve been a strong woman if she had left Joseph, met up with Chris, resolved all her feelings for Joseph before she started up anything serious with Chris, and then married him once she was truly over Joseph and was free to give her entire heart to Chris. But the fact that she rushed into the marriage with Chris just shows me how weak she really is. It was like she was so terrified of getting older and still not being married that she jumped into something with the first man that offered her a ring. I don’t know/care if she should get back with Joseph or not, all I know is that she should’ve dated Chris for a while and given herself some time to get over Joseph before making a decision to marry Chris.

    Hey Tyler, I've been watching For Better or Worse since it's inception. I never really cared for the character of Joseph, somehow found him weak and childish. I like the fact that you had Leslie move on, which would have been a logical progression. Joseph now appears to be unstable, following Leslie around and not allowing her to enjoy her life. I hope you don't have plans for Joseph and Leslie to get back together. There are a lot of avenues you can go with Chris and Leslie being married. This includes life in corporate world, and Chris making her a part of that. You can elevate the character of Leslie or you can make her drooling over the past, that I believe personally, people just need to let go and move on. It's not about smelling good and looking good, it's about in the long run was this man going to be good for me. Obviously she made the choice when she married Chris. I really don't like men who pursue women, that are committed to someone. Now this is just my opinion, but that's just how I see it.

      @Celia - Ditto regarding Joseph. It appears to me as a viewer that he wants Leslie now because she is with someone else. His character has been written for us viewers to see him as not worthy of Leslie because of his immaturity so we can't feel differently about him until he has shown us he is different. I also want Leslie to grow, she has to remember how she has felt in some of the past situations involving Joseph. We (the viewers) will lose respect for her as a strong woman if she gives in to Joseph and he has not changed from the person he was when she left him. JMHO
