  1. I felt from day one that Gerry was quite full of himself. Now for sure I feel he is exactly what I thought about him from the beginning and then some.
    Now he is going to be on other realty shows. HE IS WAY BEYOND BEING FULL OF HIMSELF. I DISLIKE HIM PROFUSELY 😒

    1. I’m sick n tired of seeing him. he is so self centered. he doesn’t care that he broke two ladies hearts. if I see his face on a TV show I turn the channel n hope everyone else will do the same .don’t let him make money after throwing away something as sacred as giving an oath to God to love n cherish until death do we part…all lies on his part ..

  2. so is he gonna be having another show or what’s going on cause I was reading it and it sounds like to me he will be showing another episode. is that true?

  3. Enough is enough! You can’t change the spots on a lepard !!! He is who he is! Although I don’t think he will get over or play games with Leslie!
