And Ryan pulls the plug on the old shop.

Only Phor and Don secure invitations to the new 9Mag.

Prev1 of 2


  1. Soooooo Glad BI Compton is coming!!! Every since Ryan “Upgraded”!! His “Friends” started being employees!! Come on COMPTON!! SHOW US HOW TO LOVE ONE ANOTHER!

  2. Ryan showed them the Art of War. They ruined his family out of pure jealousy Charmaine been f-cking Van that’s why she put a battery in his back to overthrow Ryan from jump. Remember when she put whipped cream on herself and sat in a Play Pool when Van got out of Jail? They’ve been f-cking on the under. Van was jealous of Ryan because he was in love with Kat, Kat was invited to Mexico by Danielle because she was mad he was f-cking Kat (remember that’s his ex and Charmaine’s Cousin) and Kat was jealous of Rachel just like she was of Nikki which is why he took Ryan’s side. Phor knew they were f-cking and he also knows how crazy Kat is that’s why he didn’t want her around and let’s not forget Charmaine f-cked Don too and tried to break up his home. So all 3 of them patiently waited for Revenge against all of them. He made them all come back begging and ruined their relationships like they did his and fired their disloyal a-ses. Familiarity breeds contempt.

    1. Ryan ruined his own family by cheating on Rachel with his employee, Kat. Don tried to break up his own home by sleeping with Charmaine while he was with Ashley. He also tried to break up his home when he had a baby on Ashley and cheated on her with multiple people outside of Charmaine and cheated on her the night before their wedding. I won’t even get into the rest of the nonsense you typed. It’s like you’re watching a completely different show from everyone else.

  3. I can’t stand that chick Bella she starts sh-t .Then she says Meeks ring is probably cheap . Ryan is right he needs to close the shop down , he says it’s not making any money so shut it down !!!

  4. Charmaine needs to understand none of these men are her brothers. And they d-mn sure aren’t her friends. She has multiple real jobs now so she just leave the show. it’s a shell of its old self anyway.

  5. I’m not sure why Ryan is acting so holier than thou nowadays. He’s the one who set the downfall of the old shop in motion when he slept with his employee. He also kept people like Lily and Junior around even though he knew how destructive they were. He shot up the shop during one of his temper tantrums. And now he’s trying to act like he’s better than everyone else like none of those things happened. It’s absurd.
