    Oh for goodness sake Essence
    Even blind stevie wonder knows Shonda is not like you have on the cover. She is fat , unkempt looking, and all over the place ‘I hate when a magazine wants to insult my intelligence with some fake photoshop . Even kerrys face looks different. Like Ebony Mag, this mag is going down the drain, Its bad enough blogs have taken over your market now you going to lie to us? NO ma’am – i aint buying it

      She may be fat, unkempt and all over the place but she is more successful than you are. It is a glamour and beauty magazine, what did you expect?

      For once I agree with you Bruno. For a show that makes so much money you would think that the lead female would have a good wig.

This fall i will doing a lot of curling up on my sofa, drinking tea and watching shows on my new 6o inch HD. Ohhh I love falls. Not too hot not too cold, just cool and air smellning of pumpkin spice and lots of good shows on tv.

    Lol @bruno… “I’m always right” buh a Hahaha….. Pls swerve. Always right my foot, no body on this earth is always right… Most of the time, u re wrong, dead wrong in fact… Always negative, never has anything useful to say… There is a difference between constructive criticism and just being plain dumb, a hater n a sadist, which is what n who u re….
