  • Sylvia from Michigan City, IndianaThis video is great! I only wish “Reba” would have stayed in production, it was a VERY GOOD sitcom! Now, there’s nothing but garbage on TV, and it’s not even funny! The cartoon “American Dad,” it’s NOT funny, in fact it’s offensive!
  • Christine Angela Campos from Evanston IllinoisI thought that the couple in the video was V man and Cheyenne from the show.
    I love them together on anything
  • Skyforme from Va;;ey Center, CaVery sad to have to put your kids thru this. I see my brother and his Ex go thru this all the time. Their weekends are RULED by these visits....
  • Cory from Olds, AbOh this song, and especially the music video makes me want to cry every time i hear/see it. the fact it's van and cheyenne makes it even more heart wrenching i think cuz i loved them as a couple on the show!
