    Gee. What a milestone. At least 2,500 men told by their baby mamas that they’re ain’t their babies’ daddy. lol

    The new king of Trash TV— i have to say when i bored i do watch the show. Nobody accept White Trash & Ghetto people would go on tv & tell the world, that i have slept with so many different men, that i don’t know who the father is.

  • Stop the Flop

    He actually had his show since 1991, but they prefer to pretend that it started in 1998.

  • Shane

    His talk show is nothing but pure ignorance and stupidity. He doesn’t deserve congratulations for that. He’s already making millions by exploiting the uneducated and poor in our society, so why encourage him further? His show is nothing to be proud of.
