In my eyes, indisposed, in disguises no one knows. Hides the face, lies the snake in the Sun in my disgrace. R.I.P. Chris. I'll miss you.

Chris is a brilliant singer and a very nice guy. It is too bad he married into such a gold digging manipulative family. His own family and friends not to mention his daughter want nothing to do with them.

This is a really old profile pic of Chris, he has his hair long now. Why all these nasty comments about his wife? Jealous I guess? I had a meet and greet with Chris a few years ago and she was there and was really lovely!

I can not believe it either! Vicky karayiannis looks like a gargoyle!

JESSMar 25, 2013

I can not believe such a handsom man would chose to be with Vicky Karayiannis. She is a hag!
