the trib said this all happened at 4am i think. Why did she open the door at 4am, especially to this man?


Thanks, it just helps give added perspective

I sure would like to see a photo of what they’re fighting or killing each other over

and if she isn’t some goddest

then these fellows would viciously fight and defend over any petty stuff.

Pretty sure she ain’t no goddess. Even if she was, it is still stupid behavior.

Hey Popeye and Brutus use to fight over Olive Ole, one of the uglist things to walk the earth.

Something tells me she probably owns a liquor store
