This Blair Underwood story is confusing me bc I know for a fact that one or two of my exes were looking for me to marry my best friend I told them not to worry 😭😭😭😭
One of my exes commented “FINALLY!” Under our photo on IG LMFAO he knew!

I hate Blair Underwood’s dating story. The idea that he’s just biding his time, just popping in when he doesn’t have anything else going on in his life…we don’t know him. Reducing a friendship of many years to be part of it is disrespectful.

Funnily enough, fans shared that this is what they might see Underwood leave in one of her movies.
Blair Underwood is definitely the bad guy from all of these movies https://t.co/KYU0pRTB0h

Blair Underwood is the worst man in the movies and in REAL LIFE. It’s no wonder that all these movie roles seemed real and natural to the dog 🤣🤣🤣

Supporters have stood by their opinion that this is a case of old friends having a falling out, rather than just being frustrated as some people have suggested.
But shame on me I don’t think anyone waits in the wings to take your man for over 40 years. That Blair Underwood story sounds like a story of ex-divorced/single people falling in love and it’s legit lol

Blair Underwood marrying someone she’s been friends with for 30+ plus years is amazing to y’all? I don’t think so, they were already married and I believe they were! They were young AF- pre-history when they met! Sometimes what you need is right there!

Regardless of how people feel, the two are planning to settle down and build a life as a family.
Congratulations to Blair Underwood and Josie Hart on their engagement!
