Tyler's new soap about a dysfunctional wealthy family is set to premiere on OWN on May 28. The cast includes John Schneider as the wealthy family patriarch and Aaron O'Connell (the hot guy from those Liquid Plumr commercials) as his alcoholic son.
That's actually Crystal Fox, probably best known for her role on the show "In the Heat of the Night". The cast bio on OWN says she's Nina Simone's niece.
[quote]Is this a sitcom or a serious soap?
It's an hour-long soap. John Schneider's character is a judge, and he's having an affair with Crystal Fox's character's daughter.
Who is Tika Sumpter who played Layla on the Dorian Lord Programme.
Tika is the one playing the maid's daughter having the affair with John's character. She was on Gossip Girl, One Life to Live and The Game.
This is John Schneider from the Dukes of Hazzard and that Superman show? Isn't he a homophobe? Good thing Tyler's deeply closeted.
How are ratings?
Record ratings but the LA Times blasted it a few days ago calling it a minstrel show and several African American scholars saying Oprah was blinded by ratings and put a show on that is contrary to her message of empowerment.
All Tyler Perry shows are viewed by critics as "minstrel shows" -- but audiences flock to them nonetheless. Oprah knew exactly what she was getting into, she's very close with Perry.
I watched some of THatHN last night.
It's definitely a soap, but it really felt like an old-school, pre Luke and Laura show.
The pace was very slow and the plots felt quite ordinary.
Is it on nightly or is it a weekly?
If it's a weekly I think it will need to pick up the pace of the plotting.
Oh, some of the acting was atrocious. I couldn't tell if it was the actors fault or just bad direction and then editing.
How the hell did Miss Piggy get Bo Duke to marry her???
Worst piece of shit I've seen in a long time.
Hanna is so damn sanctimonious. Benny is a lil' slow. He couldn't see the resemblance between himself and Mr. Watson?
OMG, Peter Parros is in this! In addition to having an awesome body, he is a giant sweetheart.
I recorded the first episode as a joke.
It is badly written, directed and acted, and looks phenomenally cheap.
The stories are hideous and the clothing is stupid.
And yet I just keep watching, every damn episode.
Peter Parros has the squarest jaw I have ever seen.
Tyler Perry has to be the most untalented black person in the history of hollywood to get so many opportunities . His success is just as mind bottling as the Kardashians. The fact that he continues to work despite putting out so much trash in the black community to consume is puzzling.
His shitty show "Love Thy Neighbor" is just as awful. Bad acting, bad writing, and not funny whatsoever.
R19, I agree with what you say, but there's no excuse for "mind bottling."
What's going on with the gay dude storyline?
The cinematography is horrible but the show is great. Candace is horrid. Wyatt is hot. Jeffery finally confessed his love for Wyatt. Finally a watchable TP program
Coming back for a second season in January. Filming starts in October.
We've been told two of the leads won't be back - we're guessing the gay son (his parents will ship him off somewhere to straighten him out) and either the suicidal daughter or the nympho Latin maid.
We'll keep you posted...
The mother was so cruel when her son came out in the final episode
It's been a very long time since I've heard that kind of bigotry. She was crushing him emotionally. I wanted him to punch her. She was beyond a cunt
Thinking Benny won't be back ( how much more can happen to him?) & Catherine. Candace would slid in her shoes. Thinking the other maid has some dirt on Jim so she'll stick around. Please don't let it best Wyatt. Super hot. Probably going to the slammer though
I think Aaron O'Connell who plays Wyatt is HOT but the character doesn't seem long for the show.
I really hope they don't kill off Benny. I would hate to see Hannah go through that plus Tyler Lepley is oh so fine.
I never was a fan of Tiki Sumpter but she does play the hell out of that thug bitch (her mother's words) Candace.
The relationship between Katherine and Hannah is my favorite part of the show but I'm afraid the cliffhanger is going to seriously come between them, at least for a little bit. Maybe longer if Benny is dead and I don't look forward to watching that.
As hateful as she was to Jeffrey (you got to love him for going all Bette Davis on Wyatt with that golf club), I do have to say that I really do like Veronica. She doesn't play when she goes after the right people and I LOVE how she ho checked Candace. I think her portrayer, Angela Robinson, is one of the most talented actors on the show. The scene between her and Jeffrey was the best written and acted scene this season.
This show will not win an Emmy for Best Drama any time soon but I do find it quite entertaining for a Tyler Perry production.
R27, I like Veronica as well. That scene with Jeffery was so brutal that I cried. I loved that David tried to talk Veronica down and ultimately was there for Jeffery. I also love that he knew Jeffery was gay all along and tried to prepare Veronica for Jeffery's coming out. I do believe that in the end she will support Jeffery but that is probably going to be a long drama filled road.
[quote]I think Aaron O'Connell who plays Wyatt is HOT but the character doesn't seem long for the show
As long as he is smart and keeps giving up his body for Perry to play with he will keep his job.
Yeah, I figured that as well r29. Oooh! To think someone that fine would have to fuck around with Tyler. He looks better dressed as Madea.
The new episode is on and it's GOOOOODDD!
So Benny is dead. Will Celine be fired? And will recent real-life orphan John Schneider hook up with that campaign manager, or will sassy Veronica get rid of her first?
And will we see gay Geoffrey hook up for real sometime soon??
So is Benny dead?
Tyler likes to hire hot guys he sees in commercials. hmmmmmmmmmm
The new season started. It's a very attractive cast but the writing and direction are horrible. The plotting is laughable.
Is anyone watching? How does Tyler Perry get away with this? Is this soap going anywhere?
And what's with the tacky wigs?
This is a good written tv show
My mom and aunt love watching this show. (Then again they are Tyler Perry's target demographic: black, female and elderly.) I refuse to waste a single motherfucking dime on Tyler Perry's bullshit, so of course I've never watched the show entirely. What I did see was standard Tyler Perry fare: cliched melodrama, over-the-top acting, poor staging, ugly wardrobe, and one-dimensional characterizations. He's been in the business long enough now where there should be some improvement in those areas; there's no excuse for producing poor material like this.
But I guess he'll never grow as a writer-director when his demographic continues to support his garbage.
I hate watch this shit every season. The acting and storylines are so over the top, and the sets so cheap it's hard to belive this is on even a cable network. The guys are hot, and I guess I want to see what will happen next so I'm hooked.

Agreed. Agreed. Agreed.
Tyler Perry is a big old stupid queen who got lucky, and then ran back into the closet.
Everything he puts out is absolute shit.
And every guy he auditions is ridiculously hot. No doubt, they pay the price by having to have some sort of inappropriate relationship with him, ala Bryan Singer.
It truly does boggle the mind how someone so untalented, can become so successful. But then again, there's Oprah Winfrey, so...
He sure does cast hot dudes in his stuff
And makeup and wardrobe has a stock of really ugly cheap wigs.
The acting on this show is horrendous. BO Duke looks like Lawrence Oliver compared to the rest of the cast.
any same-sex male love scenes yet?
[quote] any same-sex male love scenes yet?
Only in my office, aka "auditioning room."
And that stands for Tyler Perry, not TOILET PAPER, like you would think.
I detest Tyler Perry. He's a fraud and everything he makes is junk. I wouldn't watch anything he created if you gave me ten thousand dollars. I'm not kidding.
I watched last night. It has gotten worse. Seeing Peter Parros' shirtless chest was very very nice. What a handsome man!
Parros is a boy-man. He is 54, but still looks boyish.
I'm not ashamed to admit I watch. It's trashy fun and not much is on Tuesday nights.
The Veronica character is so heinous I don't know why her husband stays faithful to her. Plus, she is so cruel to her gay son.
I'm hoping someone takes that cunt down.
R49 Shall we also mention her ugly wardrobe and wigs?
So the son mauls the Latina maid and pins her to the sofa. Pressing his crotch against her, he asks her "Feel that?". She responds: "It feels like a cigarette lighter!".
Madea writes again!
Didn't the maid say "It feels like a lipstick" ?
'cause the son answered "don't you want me to rub it on your lips?"
And Veronica the hater is apparently the most popular character on the show in the black community....
This show is awful, but high camp.
That Veronica is one fierce cunt! Blackmailing her son to stop being gay? Beating the shit out of her husband's white girlfriend? Being condescending to Candace?
Candace is fairly popular as well. I think some folks admire that Veronica fierce while noting that she is despicable to her son.
When will this show in Canada?!
You can tell the wardrobe budget was cut this season except for the S & M bondage group scene
For someone who is supposed to be very wealthy, Veronica certainly looks very cheap. No taste at all and her wigs are soooooooooooooooo tacky.
Peter Parros should get naked more often, as should Jeffrey and the addict son. Benny has potential too.
Jeffrey and Wyatt need to fuck. Jeff and Benny's kiss was quite chaste.
Veronica has fans? She is a nasty bitch. Nothing remotely likeable about her.
Veronica is popular because she calls out sluts like Candice and that man stealing white woman. You know women were cheering when she attacked that white hussy last week. I can't belive I watch this crap. 😄
apparently the title refers to acting ability. I am waiting for a HAVE to show up.
So, only women watch this show?
getting more and more ridiculous (even for a soap) and more and more tiresome...
only ONLY reason to watch is for hunky screwed up in the head wyatt played by aaron o'connell
what the heck happened to the homoerotic storyline between him and jeffrey? i thought for sure by now in season 3 wyatt would realize his hangups and addictions are caused by his repressed homosexuality or bisexuality (wasn't that hinted at in season 1?) every episode in season 1 they had these 2 together and now? nothing.....
i thought for sure by now jeffrey would have been able to wickedly and cunningly seduce wyatt! as it is now, wyatt is back to drinking and not much of a storyline at all and jeffrey still fighting with nutjob mommy and not sure what he wants or who he wants... zzzzzz!
Anyone else think that last night's episode hit a new low? It made no sense whatsoever.
That girl shot herself and has been lying in that bed unnoticed while everyone else around her carried on their little dramas?
Yeah besides the near affair this show has not made any sense. No one heard the gun shot? or even checked on Amanda? After beating a murder wrap he gets an attitude? Pretty easy when you are living in a huge mansion. Veronica is the only thing that is keeping me tuned. Her scenes are always good. Quincy is hot. Miss Holy Roly Hannah almost having sex was a hoot
robert gant and the football player from qaf are on friends now.and the football player is wearing the same shirt he wore on qaf
R64 So Wyatt beats the murder charge, right after he was so overtaken with guilt that he visited the little girl's grave.
The last four episodes of this show have covered about 12 hours. The timeline is impossible:
1) Katherine has her little soiree
2) Amanda shows up with Quincy who ruins the evening, outs Jim as Candace's lover
3) Jim gets abducted
4) Hannah overhears her cop friend betraying her
5) Hannah has a party for Benny
6) Candace slips away to torture Jim
7) Amanda plays with the gun and shoots herself
8) Wyatt finds Jim's phone and discovers he has a brother
9) The affair with the publicist doesn't happen. Veronica catches them anyway. Veronica goes to Jeffrey's and confronts him and Candace. She then calls Quincy and tells him to come take care of Candace.
10) Candace has her S&M orgy, takes pictures to blackmail Jim
11) Wyatt accosts the maid and asks about his brother
12) Everyone gets up wide-eyed and refreshed for a press conference....except maybe for Amanda who has a gunshot wound. She's so self-indulgent!
Oh!!! And Hannah did not get laid!
[R66] i love you :)
you seriously just posted the ultimate cliffnotes of the current season so far. You are so right about the timing , even for Soap time ... this is just too much.
R67 As a bonus may I add that during the 12 hours Veronica either got her weave tightened or got outfitted with a new wig, and Hannah invested in a brand new wig, which is very becoming. Quincy never did go to rough Candace up, but Jeffrey did mistake Benny for his mystery date sent by Candace and kissed him when he saw him in the doorway. Meanwhile, Amanda is dealing with that whole gunshot thing and continues to be unnoticed until Hannah tries to wake her for Jim's press confidence and finds her wounded with blood everywhere. Oh,the mess!
Wyatt heard the gunshot. It woke him up and sent him on his discovery of Jim's treachery.
I'd watch it just for John Schneider. It's amazing how that guy has kept his looks for the last 3 decades plus.
I just want Jeffrey and Wyatt to get it on. Veronica is a sickening harpy!
i know get jeffrey to seduce clueless and messed up hunky wyatt already (see my post 62!)
Not that i want to watch it, but Veronica and Candace in the sack would be veryu hot.
I think that sex between Jeffrey and Wyatt would be very dull. Jeffrey would want kisses and snuggles when he should be aggressively topping Wyatt. That's what Wyatt needs!
Wyatt needs to be topped by his hot Daddy, John Schneider.
Let Jeffrey do the licking up afterward....
Have they ever explained how Veronica knows Quincy ?
She came home last season and he was in her bed. He has made passes at her.
Why didn't she have him arrested ?
Now she's in cahoots with him to rough up Candace ?
I'm confused by this.
Veronica used her keen legal skills and political connections to get Quincy released from prison. She is his angel. She did it to get Candace.
I can understand why people think Veronica is so fierce. Yes she's a horrendous homophobe the way she treats her son and she will get hers. But the way she handles Quincy is kinda awesome. Instead of screaming or giving in, when Quincy is all over her she calls out his family and says she'll have them killed. Damn! She sent Quincy to rough up Jeffrey. Jeffrey should open the door and kiss him like he did Benny. Then it's on!
Tyler Perry clearly has a type--muscular and hunky. Wyatt, Benny and Jeffrey are like the vanilla, butterscotch and chocolate versions of the same thing. Not one of them could act his way out of a paper bag, but Jeffrey is a good crier and Benny's acting has improved by leaps and bounds since season one, but Wyatt is still pretty bad. A threesome with them would set the TV screen ablaze.
[quote]Benny has potential too.
Potential? He's hot as hell!
Wow r78 you're so right. And to be more precise, he likes hunky light skinned men who work blue collar jobs. Benny is a tow truck driver. In one of his movies Shemar Moore was a factory worker (really?) Boris Kojoe played a bus driver (really?) He's definitely projecting.
Peter Parros is hotter than any of them!
Can't get past the title. Should be "The Haves And The Haves Not"
Benny's new trucker friend is another hot man who can't act. it must be good being Tyler Perry!
Whew it was wall to wall hotties tonight. Yeah Benny's friend was hot. The Kiss! Girlfriend still seems clueless even after the kiss and Landon telling her Jeffery is gay. Looks like the outing continues next week
And what about Verrronica! at that press conference.
She may be a narrow-minded manipulative homophobic see-you-next-Tuesday, but she is FIERCE.
Yeah that was kinda fierce. And what about Candace after extorting all that money going on a hood shopping spree? Honey, 7 mil don't go as far as you think......
benny's new trucker friend?! wheww! didn't know tow truck men were male model drop dead gorgeous and built! laugh! let's hope we see much more of him (literally!)...
wyatt and jeffrey? from the previews for next week, we see jeffrey calmly and even sensously patting wyatt's head in their hug consoling him....
BUT then you see i presume what will happen later in the same episode, wyatt being a jerk to jeffrey's clueless (maybe she just doesn't want to believe it because she really does like jeffrey) girlfriend saying "did he tell you he's in love with me?" with jeffrey telling him to hush hush... WHY would wyatt do that to jeffrey, being a jerk to him YET AGAIN... jeffrey is the only friend that wyatt has in the entire world! minus the wanting him part.....
i like to think this is just another dumb not thinking comment on wyatt's part? but i'm also thinking (and hoping!) that this is wyatt's defense mechanism, because he that is wyatt DOES have feelings for jeffrey!
please make wyatt closeted and eventually bi!i'm hoping jeffrey picks up on this and uses it to seduce wyatt or wyatt himself realizes it and it's him who does the chasing! either way, TYLER PERRY MAKE IT HAPPEN!
R82 = the spirit of datalounge
I would like the new tow truck guy hook up with the newly exploring Wyatt, become lovers and settle down. They can invite Jeffrey and his girl friend over and watch Jeffrey's head explode.
I have to admit that the last episode was good. I am waiting for Wyatt and Jeffrey to finally get together and then Melissa drops the bomb that she is pregnant. Who would've thought that Celine would be the one to stand up to that bitch Veronica.
Dude, you really watch this show? Seriously?
Tyler is dropping the ball with another hottie. Jim & Celine (The housekeeper's) son. Where has he been?
Now they need to find a replacement daughter for Jim. Please make her Candace.
Last night was actually a better show. Mr. Perry is focusing on the plot again.
Last night was the best episode of TH&THN.
ITA Last night was the best show of al the seasons. Now I'm really believing Jeffrey's girlfriend is pregnant. She has that Iwill still try to keep him look. Celine is the worst maid ever.
R96, I that Veronica paid her to get pregnant by Jeffery.
I need Maggie to just slap the shit out of Veronica.
Maybe Wyatt will finally realize his feelings once Jeffrey reveals Veronica's blackmail.
1) Veronica paid Melissa to screw Jeffrey and hopefully give her a grandchild
2) the daughter was murdered by her rapist
3) Quincy will be charged and convicted until the real killer is revealed
4) option 2: the daughter was killed by her half brother (the maid's son)
5) The family will have to deal with the revelation that Wyatt was the hit and run driver
6) Jeffrey will console Wyatt. They will do it and regret it.
You can tell that Veronica is Perry's idea of the perfect woman. The woman he'd be if he weren't so convincing as Madea. She walks through the show putting everyone in check and is never checked herself.
I can't believe no one has walked off with her wig yet. She even had that brokedown convict shook. Her balls must be so big that they show through her skirt.
Oh hell r 100: every character is probably some reflection on Tyler.
R10 Celine put her in check several times on the last show.
The actress who played Catherine was excellent in this week's episode.
I still want Veronica dead and buried. She is purely heinous.
I have a vague recollection from season 1 of Wyatt alluding to being sexually abused at the Summer camp he and Jeffrey went to.
Did I dream that ? I swear it happened but it's never been brought up since.
Yeah, I don;t know what happened but everybody seems to have learned how to act all of a sudden, even the actor playing Wyatt.
The show is entertaining, but wildly uneven and not well written.
r103 Both Wyatt & Amanda referenced they were abused but wasn't explored
Wyatt: "Kiss me Jeffrey!"
My word. Shall we wait until the police are gone and they have removed your dead sister's body from the blood-splattered room upstairs or do you want to do it right here right now?
Celine and Veronica need to do some serious scissoring.
I was hoping Jeffrey would get a handle on Quincy but we all know he will get his head and body bashed in
Interesting subplot with Jeffrey's girlfriend. Everyone in town has told her her boyfriend is Gay including his Dad. Wonder who was that she was visiting in the hospital?
Veronica has no soul. Every bad bitch has a redeeming quality. She has none.
Jeffrey should have kissed Wyatt in the kitchen. Enough with the teasing.
Melissa will probably turn up pregnant.
guesses: Melissa has been paid by Veronica to give her a grandchild. Back story: David is gay too and he and Veronica went through this 25 years ago.
Quincy should have raped Jeffrey and taken his cherry.
Overall, the writing seemed tighter last night and there was an attempt at back story. Let's see where this goes.
Veronica is truly heinous. I wish Candace, Landon and Jeffery would team up to take down. She is so rapid it will take all three plus David to do it.
I forgot to add that so many of the young adults on that show were abused as children.
2 or is now 3 episodes in a row with wyatt teasing jeffrey? what is going on with that? at least jeffrey responds with the "you love me wyatt" comeback! bring it on tyler perry and let's have the seducing and seduction begin.. although i wonder who will be the seducer? jeffrey or wyatt?
on a sidenote, jeffrey getting that girl pregnant? yeah, because we all know it only takes 1 time! UH HUH! yeah, like what are the odds that they do it one time and it works! oh brother...
Veronica is hands down the meanest woman I've ever seen on TV.
I do not understand why David puts up with it. Why has he not dumped her ass? He needs to fuck the blonde and divorce the cunt.
I think the show has a new headwriter because the last 3 episodes have had a gigantic improvement.
I need Veronica to lose David, Jeffrey and Katherine. Catherine gave her a death glare after Veronica's snide remark about her parenting.
Maybe Veronica is getting murdered.
Kill that nasty bitch. I hope Jeffrey has finally smelled the coffee after Quincy's attack.
Too bad the hottie at the bar didn't end up being gay. I'd love to see him and Landon get it on.
Veronica is really something. Watching the way she tried to handle Katheryn while being confronted regarding her son's immutable gayness was gold.
Finally, the back stories on all of these people promise to be compelling.
Wait, this show had a black woman beating up a white woman? Shoot, take a look at the real world, Tyler. White women are beating up black MEN. Black being tougher or stronger is myth. One hay-maker, and they go right down.
No Veronica this week means it just wasn't as compelling.
There were a number of swipes at Veronica this week, even having people call her crazy. When a snarling ex-con murderer who has just beaten your son and dubbed him "Peaches" calls you crazy, you must have issues!
Even Katherine dissed her.
jeffrey and wyatt need to get it on already! i want beyond horny addicted to each other, whenever and wherever forbidden secret "relations" between the two...
i actually want candace put in her place! oh sure, veronica is literally insane and evil, but candance? i'm so so tired of her being so smart, smarter then EVERYONE. oh please, so silly.
R125 And when did Candace finish Law School? with her online prostitution how does she expect to pass the ethics evaluation for admission to the Bar? Or does she plan on screwing everyone in the process?
no doubt candace will seduce some old old horny fart or blackmail them, you know her usual and oh so tired m.o. (because don't you know no one can resist her and she's the smartest woman on the planet! uh huh)...
this show is so so bad, but it's addictive in some aspects.. i find myself actually laughing OUT LOUD most of the time, even in the "serious" scenes.
R127 Did you laugh out load at "Peaches"? I was hoping Quincy would want some Peach cobbler.
I hope these aren't males watching this show. If so, turn in your Man Card now!
Candace has not always won. Katherine cut her to shreds last season when she taunted her about being Nine. 'Ronica has also bested her on several occasions. Jim also cut her at knees last season. She is also scared of Quincy. Candace's sense of herself is not necessarily the truth. That said she is one of my favorite characters.
This show is utter shit, but it's so watchable. The acting is all over the place, but Renee Lawless has been surprisingly good (even subtle on occasion, which is a rarity on this show) since they offed Amanda.
Every woman is some varietal of a bitch, and every guy comes from the Tyler Perry fantasy catalog. So, who cares if half of them act like they are doing community theatre? I find myself laughing constantly, and much of it unintentional. It's one of my favorite hours of the week.
[quote]and Aaron O'Connell (the hot guy from those Liquid Plumr commercials) as his alcoholic son.
Tyler sure likes those hot guys from commercials. He hired that Irish Spring guy too.
Well, holy crap!
DL fave Angela Robinson, who plays Veronica, has been named "Outstanding Female Actor" by the Gracie Awards in LA. She's alongside other winners (and DL faves) Julia Roberts, Maggie Gyllenhaal, Margo Martindale and Cicely Tyson!
this show is so bad it's funny! i literally laugh outloud throughout each episode.. and i don't think? your supposed to be...
beyond unrealistic, beyond bad acting, beyond makes no sense and so on... but i'll enjoy it for what it is and of course the eye candy...
candace's suitor last night was sexy. hopefully he has a body underneath his suit..
we saw the hunky male model tow truck friend of benny again last night..
where is jeffrey? wyatt feels like he needs to confess and because why? i'm guessing somehow both jeffrey and wyatt might be charged even arrested but the charges and arrest will not stick and they'll be let go because of some time statute or under mental duress because of what veronica did to them both (blackmail and so on!)... perhaps that is wyatt's plan? maybe he's not a muscle no brains after all?...
perhaps this will be the added if not final push to see just how much wyatt cares about jeffrey in while punishing his mother, he's also freeing him and hopefully love and lust will ensue quickly and FINALLY!!!
What i find most frustrating is that there is no respect for any kind of timeline or continuity. One person is having cocktails while another is having breakfast.
R137! i so hear you! it's like they are making it up as they go along! do they HAVE a continuity supervisor on the set? a script supervisor? would love to be on the set during actual filming to see if it's a total fly by the seat of your pants indeed make it up as they go along chaotic circus of a set!..
Veronica has lost her mind. Tyler must have written an out for the character by having her relapse.
So many dropped storylines. Where is Candace's baby? Amanda's professor, Who was Jeffrey's girlfriend visiting in the hospital?
Veronica has lost it. David asked her about her past drug use. She is making his life hell.
*Spoiler* Next week looks like Jeffrey can't fight the feeling. Wonder what prompted Jim to ask Wy is he in love with Jeff?
Maybe Jeffrey will offer to service both Wyatt and his father AT THE SAME TIME...
I really love the Jeffery and Candace friendship. Jeffery has slowly evolved as the heart of the show as he is really the only character without guile.
Other dropped storylines:
*Wyatt's extranged gf
* Celine's kids and husband
* Benny's father's health
Also.how is it that Amanda committed suicide, Wyatt confessed to vehicular homicide,the Criers are divorcing and Veronica is nuts yet Crier still employs a PR firm to run a campaign for governor?
Bennys father showed up two episodes ago.
I am sure we will see more of Celine's kids.
Wyatt"s gf dumped him.
The whole season seems to have played out over a week.
I saw it last night and was rolling with laughter at Vernoica, the "Simple bicth," as her neutered husband David referred to her. She went apeshit and commenced to wreck the lounge in the hotel, throwing bottles and turning over tables and chairs. Can't wait to see her get her comeuppance.
After the show, there was an hour-long special showing Tyler Perry's preparations for a lavish party celebrating the casts of his shows. It was a celeb-filled affair, and he had a grand room built over his pool to hold the shindig. He's definitely taken a page or three from O's book.
Any comments on the season Finale?
1) We got to see Q
2) Jeffrey grew a pair and gave the speech that TP has been saving for years
3) Veronica outdid Madea and went apeshit
4) Melissa was exposed.
5) Wyatt got a preview of Prison 101
6) Veronica put a smile on Bennie's face.
Were there any loose ends left untouched?
I know Veronica is a deplorable character but boy do I wish I were her in the car with Benny last night.
The finale was good.
I was so happy Jeffrey finally stood up to Veronica and made a pass at the hot campaign aid.
David is the most confounding character. Why he stays with that shrew is beyond me.
R148 David stays with her because he thinks that they have been through a lot and have a strong bond. He underestimates how crazy she is. Peter Parros continues to be a very hot man. I was glad they got him out of a suit and into some pants that showed off his other assets. Very nice.
Wyatt should have been standing at the door as Jeffrey and Landon were about to fuck.
"Oh my God. I'm back. I'm home. All the time, it was... We finally really did it ... You Maniacs! You blew it up! Ah, damn you! God damn you all to hell!"
We are switching to the new platform for The DataLounge this weekend. All of our mobile users have been using it for over a week and all first time users have been using it for about a month - which adds up to well over one million users. So we're ready to end this phase of the testing and move everybody to the new site. (more)
And yes, we've changed the look and some of how it operates.
Yes, we know you just *hate* it in well in advance.
Yes, we know we suck.
Yes, we are the biggest suckers that ever sucked.
But it was time for a change and with the huge shift to mobile it was long overdue. We've taken this opportunity not only to update the look but also make major changes under the hood (or "bonnet" if you're either British or pretentious or both). And we have to prepare for 2016 - a presidential election year where we can normally expect to see a 60% jump in traffic (yes, we've seen 5 presidential elections so far…Christ we're old).
The site has a bunch - nay, plethora - of new features which will make the site more usable: better search, the ability to ignore posters and threads, see link previews, to pick up a thread where you left off, spam and malware filtering and more.
If you want you can go explore and see for yourself, Click here.
And while running the tests we've noticed two interesting reactions to the new system - people are spending more time on the site and more people that come stay around longer and look at more stuff. Both good things. Yay!
Possibly we've not slain all the dragons and there will be issues that come up during the switchover. There's a help button in the lower right hand corner of the page which you can use to send us bug reports.
