    I'm so over this already. Stop talking about it. The woman has passed on, let her go in peace. Christ.

    I like your blog perez or I wouldn't be here but sometimes you lie about how well something does on TV. You love to inflate the Kartrash. I bet people did tune in after you posted about the daughter being a mess. Maybe some people thought Bobby would get high and chase the casket down the street?
