    I used to BUST OUT LAUGHING watching this show! You know, when someone brags about something, you better make sure it’s nice lol…everyone showed off empty asss standard looking houses with hardly ANY STYLE worth mentioning! Hunnie, this wasn’t Architectural Digest! Hell, this wasn’t even Lifestyles Of The Rich and Famous! This was TRL generation artists showing off refrigerators with nothing in it, bedrooms where NO DAMN MAGIC happened, empty rooms with hardly any furniture, DVD collections (LMAO), tacky cars (Birdman), clothing collections you could buy at any standard mall, faux Hugh Hefner looking pools that didn’t complement the house, interior decorating that Paige Davis could do, blinged out everything (tacky), and the list goes ON…JoJo, luh ya girl, but you shouldn’t have shown off that house LOL…JD, luh ya, but you showed off a house that went in foreclosure…Tina, luh ya, but those House Of Dereon bed sheets was NOT IT lol…they would cue up dramatic music to show off a bathroom toilet lol…they would slo-mo the camera and do quick takes and rewinds of tennis shoes lol…then, to end it, they kick the viewer out, slam the front door, and the camera would speed to the driveway LMAO…don’t nobody care about your basic asss house lol
