    Ed you’re a sweet guy, I wish you well. I also hope you take this time to look at your wife more objectively, and see her as the rest of America does. Good luck!

    Heba wasn’t that bad, but Vicky was!!

  4. Stacie says:

    Ed see’s his wife exactly as her should. How come when Heba did somthing it was mean and nasty but when Michelle and Renee did anthing they were just wonderful. Lets not forget that Renee is the woman who left her husband and took two of her children with her and did not so much as look back at the third.

    Anonymous, that was probably the most hilariously condescending, not to mention ridiculous, comment I’ve seen in a long time.
