But shame I don't think anyone waits in wings to get your man for over 40 years. That Blair Underwood story sounds like a case of old divorced/single people falling in love and that's valid lol— Neo (@Neo_url) November 23, 2022
Seeing all the tweets about Blair Underwood, tells me that y’all just need to heal. There not always some bad behavior at play. Two people who’s time had not come in their 41 year friendship ended up circling back to each other.— Kyle St Cyr (@stormthagxd) November 23, 2022
The Blair Underwood situation is funny and only helps to support arguments that men and women can’t be platonic friends. If I had a $1 for every argument I’ve had regarding a female friend of mine. ??????— Devin (@geevonie) November 23, 2022
Blair Underwood is the exact reason why I don’t trust you niggas and y’all “bestfriend”— COURT (@mynameskourtney) November 23, 2022
