    I know this is far off and way off the subject but am I the only person who thinks LL Cool J looks like a carmel skin James Evans from Good Times? If they ever had a reboot he should play the roll of James Evans. Octavia Spencer should play a more beautiful Florida Evans, and Malon Wayans should play JJ.... I'm just saying. I truly admire LL and Morris Chestnut for sticking by their women.

    "Picks her battles." She looks the other way while he he's unfaithful and she keeps the house and watches the children. I seriously doubt that she could go out and sleep with other men. Sad what some people will put up with, when they can't respect themselves.
