Still an optimistic fan!

No matter what all the naysayers think and believe, I'm still very much a fan of the show, past and current actors included. The story line has seen a tremendous overhaul with writers going in a direction that doesn't seem to be very well received by a large viewership , but let's try to continue to support BET and the remaining actors. Truthfully, I liked Kelly's presence on the show and was utterly devastated when the only one permanent Caucasian of the cast was removed for whatever reason. I hope she will continue to make guests appearances and ultimately return as a full-time cast member. I realize Chardonnay was deeply hurt by Jason's marriage rebuttal, but I'm not in favor of her literally trying to vindictively make him suffer so much financially. Let's just be real, they were married in Tijuana both in an alcoholic stupor. So neither should have had high expectations for the marriage lasting or having unrealistic expectations for a fairytale outcome. Regardless of which one was actually wealthy or not. I was hoping for a more amicable solution and dissolution of the marriage without the vindictiveness. Needless to say, I will continue to watch and support the show and BET network. As we've all seen and is very much so evident in the ratings, there is MASSIVE influence by African American viewership! That alone should make us more proactive in our support of the ever growing shows that cater to primarily ethnic audiences or rely heavily on our support for any hopes of success. Just to name a few: Scandal, Being Mary Jane, How To Get Away With Murder, Black-ish, Extant, etc. This does NOT include any of the ratchet reality shows as basically the drama in those will sell itself! Not proud of the fact that RHOA, Love & Hip Hop franchise, Basketball Wives, R&B Divas ATL and LA, SWV Reunited, and Mary Mary are all the ones that I can think of right off hand that capitalize on bringing so much negativity and downright shameful behavior, it's often offensive. Although I'm personally guilty of watching a few of those listed, I'm saddened that I'm merely supporting ratchet, drama-filled tv as a trade off for what should be black, women, and entrepreneurial empowerment. If at any point those shows were originally designed to promote that, that focus has long since been lost and simply fallen by the wayside!moreless
