I am happy for Jill, peace to her. She would be the world’s biggest idiot for marrying that jerk! He is such a manipulator! All he does is use women and then throw them to the wind. Jill needs to check his resume, better yet ask anyone of his baby’s mamas how he treats women! I am sure she can do better than him! He needs to take care of at least ONE of his 3 children and stop spreading his seed everywhere!

Hey what happened to Lamman Rucker (as fine as he is)? I thought he confessed his love for Jill during the of Why Did I Get Married? She let him go or visa versa?
