  1. I feel the same way. I feel she’s rude to Ryan and cut’s him off all the time. She’s always talking about herself. I was also thinking about Ali Wentworth. They seem to have good chemistry together.

  2. Kelley thinks she’s a queen . Ryan is very nice he has to be to work with her. Ali Wentworth and Ryan are the perfect pair. I have stopped watching the show because of Kelley.
