So let me just say that I have had a front row seat for the whole Emily/Justin relationship, and it has been tough -- for all parties involved. I have always served as the middleman between the two, and it just sucks. Justin is a little right in the opening scene when he says that Emily likes to keep him on the "fishing line" and then to reel him in whenever she wants him around. If Emily found out that Justin had cheated on her, she probably could have found a better situation to bring it up than when they have both been drinking. They both, from what I can tell, really have a love in their heart for one another, but it's tough because they are like oil and water. I'll also say that both are awesome people, and even though you, as the viewer, might be only seeing the drama that unfolds between the two, there are sometimes when the two of them together is beautiful.
I have one thing to say about Africa's conversation with her friend while getting her hair did, and that is that even though you kicked me to the curb, you do you boo boo. Don't worry about what everyone else says about what you "should" be doing. Age is just a number and you are success in your own right. If you want a family, it will happen, in your own time. Rant over.
Tribble, I wish there were more men like you in today's world because many men think that they can play with women's emotions and not have to pay the price. I guess many have not seen the movie A Thin Line Between Love and Hate...LOL! If a women played with Vawn's emotions, he will blow up in a new york second. What comes around, goes around.
You can't play with a woman's emotions or a gay emotions either. Vawm is a tool. PERIOD.
Tribble, I absolutely admire your stance on Vawn's BS view about how to handle a relationship!!!! Thank you for being a REAL MAN!!! As a Black woman, I REALLY APPRECIATE IT!
Tribble, sweetie you have no business being in the room with A BUNCH OF IDIODIC MALES! Seems you were the only man in there. I see Vawn also had some OLD Fools too. My momma always said, because a man is older doesn't make him wise, more times often than not, there are OLD FOOLS!! Goodness knows you were surrounded by them!! You should keep your distance from "ignit," yes, I said it, ignit. They don't even deserve the entire word "IGNORANT!"
YOU MADE YOU MAMA PROUD. My hopes for you, is that some day you will find a girl that will be right for you. you are every mothers dream for a son in law. take care.
Tribble... i need you to dribble on over to Africa and give her a lil Nibble of the fantabulous Tribble! You sexy thang you... Black women are no different than white women... it's just skin honey. Empower yourself, and sit Vawns dissapointment as black mans azz down! So go and concur you a continent "AFRICA" you devilish lil white boi!
Woooow Tribble I just want to commend you! You are a real honest gentlemen! You are what women want !!! Your core values are evident ! Love love! love! your integrity! THANK YOU!!!!!
Ahhh Tribble as an african american woman I must say you are a beautiful man. Africa should have chosen you. The problem is that Atlanta is a terrible place to date for anyone..Such a small city and everyone has game. So glad not to live down there.
I just have to say...how refreshing that you would challenge Vawn and other attendees at the "seminar"...the entire group seemed to be on-board and it was completely ridiculous. I had to pick my jaw up off the floor after that episode. Very commendable! With regards to Alex...steer clear! Yikes...she needs professional help!
Tribble I truly appreciate your standards and being a decent man towards women. You are a honorable man that I would date. Keep up the great work.
After watching this episode I had to log in and blog. I think you may be the most decent person on this show. I was highly disappointed in Vawn and his thought process when it comes to dating and I appreciate you standing up and being a true gentleman!! It was disgusting to hear him say what he was saying and this episode confirmed that I will NOT be buying his book. I like Africa but maybe she is not a good fit for you. Like many women who are still single, she is caught up in the hype of choosing looks over substance. Been there, done that and in the end the woman always pays the price. Alex seems young to me. That's all I can say about her and Emily is cool. I just had to tell you I appreciate the fact that you still respect women, you have morals and you believe in doing what is right. Don't ever change that! Africa is a nice girl but you need to date a woman who will appreciate what YOU bring to the table instead of falling for a player. Good luck to you.
I really enjoyed this episode. Tribble, you seem like such a good person, a true Southern gentleman. Glad to know there are men like you still out there! I love how you stood up for women in that crazy 'seminar'. Those men looked like a bunch of animals there. Africa missed out when she picked Vawn, but I bet she is gonna figure it out soon enough. And, if she doesn't, it's her loss.
As for Emily and Justin, I'm glad he finally stood up to her about stringing him along. It's not fair to him for her to toy around with his feelings whenever she wants a man around. I think he could have definitely picked a better time to bring it up, instead of when they had both been drinking, but at least he put it out there finally.
Tribble you seem like a great person. However, and this is for some of the posters, just because Africa chose to be with Vawn doesn't mean she likes the playa type or that she isn't good enough for Tribble. That's a pretty big generalization based on one relationship and event.
He had a lot of evidence upon which to base his conclusion. Africa goes for the "playa" type in this instance. I said exactly the same thing.
Tribble you are too good for Africa... as in she likes the type that treats her like crap...she obviously is drawn to the fake, smooth "playa" type that gets what he wants and then drops her like a hot potato.
#teamtribble So glad there is a voice of reason. Things were not meant to be with Africa, she's in a different place right now. She seems really sweet and so do you, but she seems drawn to bad boys.
I completely agree with you, and appreciated where you were coming from here and in the most recent episode. Once again, you seem to be the most sincere and sweet guy on there who is also level-headed.
And I feel that both Emily and Vawn have been stringing people along, and it isn't cool, but regardless, you and Emily should leave everyone to their drama, especially when it comes to Africa and Vawn. They are grown-ups and despite how wrong Vawn maybe, she's also her own woman and should fight her own battles and that's between those two. Plus, Emily needs to not be a hypocrite and not keep playing Justin because I felt she was COMPLETELY wrong, and he was right when he stood up for himself and spoke on what she was doing.
You are the voice of reason and the bee in Vawns bonnet......love it! I encourage you to look more closely at Emily!!
I'm team Tribble all the way!! Thanks for giving women some hope that not all men are jerks! I'm pretty sure Africa will figure it out sooner than later that she missed out. Don't worry about the "hair did" comment too much, I'm a black woman and I'm not offended, people mock others on a daily basis and most of the time they're joking! #TeamTribble
I may not agree with the way Vawn handles his affairs, but he is right. What two grown adults think is good for them is their business, as long as he is practicing what he preaches, and everybody knows what's going on. You might want to watch yourself when you say things like "getting her hair did" Some may take that as mocking someone, not a good look for a "southern gentleman."
Love a Southern Gentleman. Vawn is about himself. His honesty does not make his behavior right. Using his theory of honesty we can all do whatever we want, to who ever we want, just be honest. Really? Integrity? You Tribble have integrity.
All I can say is, what a man...MMmmmmmm. A rare find and I believe Africa made a "BIG" mistake.
Sounds like you are are true gentleman and Africa might have missed out; its refreshing to finally hear a man say just how wrong it is to awaken a woman's emotions only to tell her you don't want to be in an exclusive relationship. Well said!!!
