Used to watch. Now is all about baby daddies and cheating girlfriends. Not even worth the time to watch anymore. Gotten very low in the gutter for story. Seen one Momma looking for her baby daddy, seen em all. Only thing that changes is faces and colors. Not thought provoking or news worthy stuff any more. SO SAD!!!!
Oh my, all the baby daddys that were found and NOT found.....
"Joe Bob, you ARE the father!"
