and I got himlocked up for it.

But when he got outhe made me a promise

when we got back together

that he madesome mistakes in the past

and that he would make good on'em this time around.

Mhm.From day one I'vebeen there for him.

He didn't havebut two pair of underwear

and he was washingthem -- by hand.

And hanging themout to dry.

And I went, bought you clothes,put clothes on your back.

Now, he won't even help mepay the car note.Okay.

He's fussing at me for payinghalf of the rent.

Hell.

He got made 'causehe got to pay me $55.

He's doing stupid stuff,but what the queen won't do

I ain't giving him (bleep)because, one thing about it,

if I got to argue with you abouthelping me pay the bills...

oh, hell, no.

I don't-- I think it'sgoing to be very difficult

to get him to agreeto a post nuptial agreement

I'm pretty sure he feelsas if he hit the jackpot.

But in orderto protect Scrappy,

Jasmine, Emani,and you're other grandchildren

And are we going to leaveMr. Ernest anything?No.

But he's your husband, so areyou-- how about the house?

That he can stay in your housewhen you leave?No.

At the end of the day if youwith me because you love me

or you with me becausewhat I can do for you.

I really need to know that.

This is my question.
