    I truly enjoy this sitcom. I very rarely get a chance to watch TV but I make sure that I do not miss a episode of Better or Worse. I am truly hoping that leslie stays married to Chris. This would make the storyline very interesting. I don't think she needs to stay married to Joseph. With Joseph, there's not much that can change. Overall, I know that this show that is enjoyable to people of many races and a wide age bracket.

      Must make a correction to what I just submitted. Didn't mean to say Leslie should not stay married to Joseph. Correction is that I hope that she does not get back with Joseph. But as was originally said but stay married to Chris!!!!!

    Mr. Tyler Perry, I am a huge fan of yours and unfortunately I have to address the upsetting episodes of For Better or Worse. The first two seasons were quite intriguing and I enjoyed them very much. I would always be quite excited to see every episode and my feelings were the same for the upcoming season until I watched the first few episodes. As I'm sure you are aware of the laugh track is played entirely too much. I feel somewhat forced to recognize that something said was comedic. (Even though most of the time it isn't because it's irrelevant, repetitive, and has no significance to the plot of the show that would cause me to laugh) I feel as if too much time is spent on the ignorant comments from Jennifer and Todd. Jennifer used to be one of my favorite characters but now every time she says something and a laugh track is played immediately after it I feel as if she's turned into a female version of Todd. (Whom I am not a fan of.) Also, I'm curious to know why Joseph was released from the hospital the same day he was placed in the hospital and he had a concussion among other things. The most disappointing aspect of the new shows is Angela. What happened? She was suppose to be fierce, loud, and hilarious. She appears very drained and very boring. And Keisha....I know her character is meant to be "fast" but why must her husband appear so stupid? No man is going to let his wife be all up on another guy. If it was suppose to be comedic it honestly wasn't because it was constantly recognized by Jennifer and Todd who could not keep their mouth shut. The scenes were slow paced and the acting was not up to par. I'm not sure what is going on when these episodes are being written and I am not a professional but from a viewers perspective I'd just like to say that something isn't right. I idolize you Mr. Perry. I plan to go into the Film/Television business one day and I pray to meet and work with you at least once in my life. I know what you can do because I've seen it all. I've seen many plays9and some in person-which was very exciting for me), and movies and all of your TV shows and I know that what's going on right now with For better or Worse is not truly what you are more then capable of doing. You have millions of fans Mr. Perry and I hope that with my comment as well as many others you are able to rectify the situation and show us once again how creative, hardworking, and miraculous you are. God Bless You Mr. Perry. You will forever have me as a supporter and hopefully in the future a co-worker. :)

    Well I didn't expect tears to flow when I listened to your "letter to self". I have always been grateful for my troubled childhood too; realizing now that I was being wired for my lifework. I've just never thought of writing it down before. You truly inspire me.

  • Shirley Liesdek Netherland

    Thanks for sharing "Note to Self" with the world. I am deeply touched by your letter. I'll carry you forever in my heart for your courage and strenght. You're awesome and I love you for your honesty. You know exactly how to bring hope to the world.

  • odessa prince Guyana. South America

    I love for better or for worse. May god bless you to continue doing a great job in keeping us entertain. I am waiting patient for your Reply you friend Odessa.

  • Di Moore Carson, CA

    Please let her stay married to that white man.

    • M Harrison North Carolina #1882238

      I surely agree with you. Joseph, an arrogant mama's boy, could not make a decision - misses his water since the well went dry. Putting them together could only end up with a limited number of possibilites - making the story line boring.

  • Cherice Baltimore MD

    I missed this weeks episode ! :-( can you please start putting these shows back on Comcast Demand? You use to do that with the other shows! :-/

  • Jimmyjaz Los Angeles

    I Love for Better or for Worse! With that said the writing since it has been on OWN is not the same caliber as it was last season. I agree with everything that Nessa from Severna Park MD said in her post. Please take this criticism for what it is, this show has the potential to be a good comedy. Love your work, and may God continue to bless you!C

  • LINDA BLACK United States

    May GOD bless you to continue doing such a great job in keeping us entertain. Do you have a date as to when season two of THE HAVES AND THE HAVES NOT will begin the new season? I know you will let us know as soon as possible. I am so happy. Waiting patiently.

    • TNTFaithful Indpls, IN #1882069

      I thought your email said the new season of "the haves" was coming on last week. I did not see it, my dvr did not tape it; did I miss something? I can't miss not one episode. Great job as usual.

    Last season I loved for better or worse. This season I find myself fast forwarding thru the show. To much time on that annoying friend the guy and the girl. Also I like Keisha but she is gaining soooo much weight tone down those tight sexy dresses. That first episode I just couldn't get with it. I was soooo annoyed. She is blowing up! Please let Joseph and Leslie reunite. Where is MJ? Love me some Tyler Perry
