  2. ???????Chile, take this “Itty Bitty Piggy” to the market and make sure you hold her hand while crossing the street!??????? January 6, 2017

    Veronica was SHOOK! I hope she’ll eventually get Catherine back, though.

      Nah, it’s about time that someone takes Veronica down a a couple notches. She’s been ruthless and evil for far too long on this show. And you know how long it seems, given that 10 episodes = one day.

    Lol Veronica had it coming, I can’t at the way she treats her son .I don’t support gay, but I believe every human deserves love and believe it or not, some gay people will still go to heaven if it exists and if their deed is good. What matters is not who you are in bed with, but how much love you showed to people around you.

      Girl, its 2017 and you still sound stupid as Hell. People are Gay, probably at least 2 of the men you have DEEP THROATED has gay tendancies, so shut up and get over it. Fool

      • Shakira stan January 6, 2017

        You are a very stupid human being.
        People like you are the ones giving gay guys a bad name, because of how stupid nasty and vile you act.

    Tyler Perry I Love your show I ordered cable just so I could have the OWN channel… Keep the stories comming…Love U

  13. Casual January 6, 2017

    Katherine showed hers, Veronica was shook, Wyatt’s still an a**, Oscar’s gonna get Candice to scam the presidential candidate, and Jeffrey’s still not the brightest — HAHNs is back! Love it. Jeffrey has the goods on Officer Justin and should have been told him what happened to Q, and Q’s body should have been buried at Veronica’s house by the time the police arrived at Candice’s.

    Tyler Perry is a special kind of man… I love this show and just to think that these episodes are versions of events that really go down in just about every neighborhood, in many families.. This show gets a 100% rating from me.
