Hot Mess

The disappointment in the show, levels for spreading by sexuality. And in forcing corruptIon and all of this colt Life, kidnapping children. This is a big disappointment just as Sistas is, sistas depicts a straight man going to a gay bar using a vibrator, it also depicts on three successful women or four successful women and they just sleep around anytime it’s convenient. A nagging ex girlfriend who seems psycho pathic and bratty that won’t leave a healthy relationship go. I just I stop watching the oval after the first lady try to kill her son and I don’t watch it at all but after seeing Sistas last night it’s nothing good happening on that show I understand it’s a drama serious but can there ever be any happy movements on this show. It seems like Tyler pair will depict angry black women, edgy bipolar ex-cons, bisexual man with no real agenda and basically just put it into a storyline which is basically a hot mess. It makes Black people look unsure of themselves desperate and it shows that no matter how successful they are their flaws of the way their success. Danny has slept with several different man since the start of the show she fell in love with one now she has bipolar illusions . So apparently some new riders are the show is going to fail but after last night I won’t be watching none of Tyler Perry shows. Maybe I’ll watch the Queen’s men

This title has:

Too much violence
Too much sex
Too much swearing
Too much consumerism
Too much drinking/drugs/smoking
