    Aw, the memories! Back in the day I was addicted to all the Love shows…New York, Flavor, Brett, Money, Real Chance. I even watched that mess that was Frank’s Basement (or whatever it was called). That skank Megan and her stupid trophy wife show took down the whole empire. RIP Real.

    I feel so terrible for his family. This is the same cancer that is killing me. It has metastasized to my lungs now. I have about a year to two to live barring any further complications. I know exactly what he and his family went thru up until the point of his demise. Cancer is a horrible thing that can get anyone at anytime. This breaks my heart. He was a good guy taken way too young.
