    Tyler: I don't understand how Keisha won in the divorce settlement, that really didn't make any sense, especially since she was on camera in the bank, kissing another guy. There was so much evidence out there against her, and I just knew Richard and the attorney were going to use that information; also I thought the guy from the bank was a part of Richard's infamous plan to win in the divorce. It would have been nice to see Keisha having to start from scratch on a new victim and an opportunity to bring someone new to the show, like a friend of Richard or Joseph or maybe even see her and Jennifer compete for a man, letting Jen win as a testament to plus size women, it's not what's on the outside all the time, sometimes it is what's on the inside that attracts the opposite. Or maybe have the guy from the bank scheme with Richard and take all of Keisha's assets to show that she can be vulnerable too. Right now it's getting crazy and dull, story line suggestions, pregnancy for Leslie & Joseph, Keisha find a man but he is attracted to Jen, Todd see his child for first time, ready to grow up and commit, but baby mama has moved on - Single young man ready to commit. It's time to flip the script on Mr. Todd.

      I like this....I agree...I think Keisha should have lost and had to start over and I think Jen should find a good guy!

  • Linda Chicago

    Tyler: I need you have too much going on. For Better or Worse used to be good, it now unrealistic and boring. Keisha would never survive in the real world. Please retool your juices.

  • mani south carolina

    I wish For Better or Worse was on dvd I missed the first few seasons.............Can you please consider putting them on dvd

  • Alisa Cyphers

    I can't stand Keisha please get her awful attitude off the show!! Kill her off! That is all

    • Katrina Kilgore Conway AR #2098436

      I love for better or worse they got deep Richard lost everything he was d*** as s***

    • ginger strong United States #2098751

      I so agree. Watching Keisha keep getting away with stuff is sickening. She won 1/2 of Richard 1/3 which is really nothing so these lock out scenes are ridiculous. She is a miniscule owner at best and attempting to make us believe they would just sit back and allow her to do the stuff she does is insulting our intelligence. She isn't the only person that can hire an Atty. Marcus and Joseph have money. They could have bought Richard out before divorce papers were even issued cause they knew what was coming. P.S. can't stand Todd either he's obnoxious

    Mr. Perry, this is has stopped being realistic. Keisha is hideous. Really, really, hideous and it pained me to sit and watch her on tonite's episode "Keisha's Corner". Why? Just why? You're a business man, you can't be serious. I know with all you've worked for, you would not allow Keisha to come in, take ver and j*** up all you've built. If a woman in Kisha's circumstances could accomplish all the things she does on TV in real life, then business men wouldn't be very successful. I mean lets be for real, if ESPN, had a woman on it taking about shoes how many men would watch it? I mean real men, ok, real men. I mean wouldn't it be the WE channel and not ESPN? Just think, all that pink, and Pom-poms, and girl stuff? Then you wrote in the ratings went through the roof; how? Thats not real, if my husband turned on ESPN and there was a woman laying across the counter talking about stilletos and holding a pink football but not talking about football or ANY sports at all for that matter...my husband would turn the channel and then come to me angry as if I changed the show myself! Please high ratings? That's a manufactured lie if ever I heard one. Why are the men weak and afraid of her? Why didn't marcus come up with buying Richard out during the divorce so they would be protected? That would have been a smart move to me. Also, why are they so unintelligent? Why hasn't angela slapped her? If Angela could slap her that would make a great episode. What judge would rule in her favor after so short a marriage? I meant that might happen in CA but in GA the laws are totally different. Give me a break, what happened to researching a role before writing it in? What happened to collaborating with real judges or real lawyers? Aren't you friends with Judge Greg Mathis, I'm sure with all his knowledge he could have shed some light on this. Goodness, I can't sit through Keisha again, and if this is the whole season then I'm done watching. Plus what about the other characters on the show? Don't they have lives that don't revolve around Keisha? My goodness, please do something Mr. perry this is too much even for you.

      I concur with your entire statement. Sandra Colorado. I so love this show but I am so close to not watching because of this Keisha mess. Any Judge worth his income could have seen through her manipulations, you made a mockery of the Justice system.

  • Shelia Robinson Kentucky

    Really Tyler! I can't stomach this show anymore. It's gone too far and this doesn't happen in the real world. Please for mercy sake do something about this show. You are bigger than this Tyler. The show is a joke and not something associated with the fine writings of Tyler Perry. I am very surprised it has not been cancelled. Shame because it started out sooo good and was one of my favorite shows. Now I don't even bother to watch or talk about it. Talking about a waste of TV time!

  • Dee Maryland

    I love Tyler Perry, but I can't watch the Keisha Show anymore. I love your shows but I have to drop this one as well. It is no longer entertaining, I can barely sit through the episode.

    • Tanica waterloo, iowa #2097113

      This show is ridiculous. Keisha has no role but irritation. #killkeisha, #nopointinKeishabein ontheshow, #wtfistylerthinking,#getridofkeisha.

    • Katrina Kilgore Conway AR #2098437

      Girl I know that right I don't like that

  • Marc Charlotte NC

    Come on Tyler! I used to love this show. Not as much as "House of Pain," but I still loved it. Now it's all about Keisha and it's so drawn out. I can't even watch it anymore. I am a big fan of yours so I will watch your other shows.

  • Davine

    I have to drop this show. Too bad, because I watched it from the beginning. You should change the name to the Keisha show. Every subject revolves around her, and she is a bully. I don’t watch bully shows.

  • Veronica Oklahoma City ,Ok

    I used to really enjoy the show , but you just lost two loyal fan's . Keshia has got to go, whoever is writing this show now need to go with her. Tyler what the h*** is going on . I hope this is not the message you want your name associated with. Right now you are saying if you lie, cheat, crazy, you win. Good bye Tyler

  • Chyna FTL

    So Keisha lies cheats manipulates and gets rewarded? Seriously? I hope not too many kids/young adults watch this show. Are you trying to influence your younger viewers this behavior is ok? I used to enjoy watching. These days I squirm while watching. I hold out watching/waiting for Keisha to get hers although I must admit I am about to shut the door on this show. I am not a writer- I do think you should give me or some of your other viewers a chance for K to get hers w-out killing her off. Your current story line is killing your show. on another note the housekeeper is great. Should use her (and the kids) more.

  • My Sac,CA

    Seems as if I'm not alone with my feelings about For Better or for Worse being at its WORST currently. Tyler, as talented as you are, whoever you have this show in the hands of is making you look bad! Keisha cannot have that much control no where in this green earth, and by no way would 3 grown men with sense allow the nonsense to go on as it is. Also the other characters story lines seem to be hidden due to Keisha and her tomfoolery. JESUS take the wheel! Tyler take control!
