just a bit too much
on December 5, 2011
I just thought the caliber of this story was not up to par with the others. Brenda took classes online, but still had time to clean and cook for Roake, because she didn't want to be a burden--I know the economy is hard, but she could still find a part-time job. It was as though her actions contradicted her thoughts.
At one point I realized the women were using profanity more than the men and it didn't matter who was around. When they found out Brenda was missing it seem as though everyone used this for a reunion, while poor Roake just fell apart and couldn't stop crying. This crew wasn't as sharp as they use to be. Roake had his own problems with Paula and that could have been taken care of by torching her van (mean I know, but effective).
Now the 2nd time Brenda was abducted--why? I don't know--I thought we were going to find out she was a heiress, but all she get is a box brought in on a dolly full of some cheesy gifts from her late dad (hooray for the letters and pics). After she got knocked out the 2nd time my 1st thought was 'Girl, you need to take some self-defense classes'. As for Ross and whining Cherise: she should be wondering why he looked unhappy when told they needed to get married.
