I wanted to like it but too much drama followed it
4 August 2018 | by keepitsimple-27475See all my reviews

Be glad you didn't hire the add on wannabe actors. I would like to add names but they don't need the recognition and I am glad I didn't try and act as a fill in. I would be ashamed to add my name to the list with the not really a Nebraskan ( washed up ) so called fame trouble makers.
