    I saw Eddie in the Chi and he had me rolling! My objective is to go into comedy as well- feel me, but until then Child Welfare wouldn’t take my kids if I did a lil movie (or just helped to direct some) with your uncle, would they Eddie?! I’m hungry and I need a new ride! This recession is killin yo gurl!

    finance is just a pet peeve. if you can manage the pain that is @!+#_`&#`($_)$( ociated with repossession. this will become a service of loyalty to your stupidity. A bird in the hand is nothing compared to value of your heart. Good Luck Eddie.

  6. Lindz says:

    I can not believe that this happened the way it did. Anyone who is a professional would tell there client that there car was going to get repossessed. Now the mortgage is due and he is just now finding out about it . EDDIE you need to fire that man he don’t care about U! He makes sure he gets paid! I Love this man’s work. He is the funniest and realest comic out there!!! You’re just ($)^&(&~*+_+%$)% in great Eddie!!! Hang in there!!!

  7. Missy says:

    This is the funniest !!+`~_+#`*_)(“^ I’ve seen in a long time. I love this show and hope like hell it stays on. Eddie Griffin rocks!! And his mother is surprisingly funny too.

    I will say, it does need more publicity. Ive asked so many people if they’ve watch it yet or not, and most say “haven’t heard of it”.

    Eddie,

    You are a very funny guy, I remember sitting up and watching you on HBO doing your stand up comedy “Voodoo Child”, I could not stop laughing.

    But you really need to get your spending under control. You are putting out way more that you are bringing in. I understand you want to live hard because you work hard, but all jokes aside you cannot afford to have your hard earning dollars gone to waste. Look at Richard Prior great entertainer, but died broke.

    I really would love to see you in Vegas, I think you have a great idea, but it’s time to but the fun aside and get back to doing what you do best make people laugh, and investing your money in things that are going to make you money.

    If I was not married you would have a woman that is all about business and keeping the money flowing . That is the type of woman you need not these young things that is looking for you to spend, spend, spend. Now I love to do fun things, but I believe you need to have a bank account that is fat.

    You should have paid off that Bentley when you got it, so then you would not have had it repossessed. Also please, please, please pay off your mom’s house so that does not get repossessed. And stop paying that spiritual lady money, hell I will be your spiritual advisor for free goodness. Anyway much love to you, and cannot wait to see you in Nashville.

    I GOT SOME PEE FOR YA. LOL, LOL!!

    I agree with Black Mike. Don’t worry life will always throw you challenges just hang in there and keep doing you. You are soooo funny I’ll bet my last dollar that you’ll get another Bently you’re still young. I also believe with your mom around you’ll pick the right woman that’s for you. Like you said don’t look for love let love find you.

  14. Melissa says:

    I just finish watching the show it was great. I love the fact that hes the star of the show. And that it not fake. I cant say how many shows Ive seen in the past that seem so rehearse.And I love his Mommy. She’s the TRUTH. I say that becasue im from Alabama been here all my life. And when she speaks to him on the show i feel like i should be the one saying Yes Maam. You can tell that she really love her son. I also see that she does have some very good points that she make on the show. All in all I Love the show. I love to see other African American’s who have became a sucess, in the south we call that a Blessing. And pass that help on to others( family). TO: Eddie keep doing what your doing and it will all come back to you. God bless and good health

    I think eddie’s show was funny>I hope they do a season2.I will watch it.

  16. Rollin' with the peace sign says:

    Eddie’s behavior is sad, sad, sad. He is rude and treats many , many others horribly. I sure wouldn’t support a show or any of his VH1 reality shows any longer after seeing his behavior that was displayed when the repo man picked up his car. His mother should step in to counsel him on his behavior. And, I will pass this along…Are we so desperate that we are making this guy a reality show??? WOW!!
