    When are men going to stop and think before trying to kill someone over a woman. It seems to me that the person doing the shooting doesn't realize that he will be in prison for the rest of his life, the other person will be dead, and she could care less. Get a grip before it is too late.

    I'm with you Coach K. She'll just leave both of 'em and go make a baby with someone else...I know. I watch Maury every chance I get. The paternity test shows are awesome!!!!!!!!!!!! Best comedy on tv.

    Than again, put the blame on the woman for causing the friction between the two men. She lied to one man and lied to the other until she was caught. The father of her baby should pay child-support, other wise he should leave this lady alone for life. Maybe he should asked for a DNA test to prove that the child is his. It would not hurt.

    What up with everyone fightin' over a "baby mama"???!!

    If the two men had to fight over "Ms. Thing", she was not all that and worth it. Too bad these guys could not see that. Meanwhile, she has another man. Some ladies do the same thing. Its a shame some cannot see the forest for the trees.
