By now you’ve heard about the cancellation of long running soap operas “All My Children and One Life to Live.”
Soap fans of the canceled shows have apparently been bombarding Oprah Winfrey with messages to save the shows… so much so, that Miss O released a video addressing why she ‘can’t dayum save everybody!!!’
[Sidebar: those are my words not hers… 😆 ]
Believe me, if there was a dime left to made from them on broadcast television it would still be happening.
And so because all good things come to an end, and all things have their time… as do the soaps… as does The Oprah Winfrey Show, I will not be taking on the responsibility of trying to revive an institution that for all intent and all purpose indicates that time has come for it to be over.
So thank you for believing I could save them. But I really can’t.

Word on the curb is that Soulja Boy aka DeAndre Cortez Way, is planning to fill Tupac Shakur’s shoes in his legendary “Juice” role.
Soulja Boy, who recently released a released a mixtape by the same name as the classic film, announced that he will be playing the role of legendary West Coast rapper in an upcoming biopic.
He specifically spoke about becoming “Bishop,” stating:
Basically, it’s your boy Soulja and I’m Bishop in 2011, running around in the streets, man. You know how the movie goes, but we’re flipping it and shooting in Atlanta.
I want to show these people my acting side and me being creative—always giving them something new; that’s all. I got same video director that shot ‘Crank That,’ ‘Kiss Me Through The Phone,’ ‘Turn My Swag On’ —my most successful videos.
The whole mixtape is the soundtrack for the movie.
Filming will begin “soon”… whenever that is.
I’ve always had mad respect for SB and his hustle… but Juice? I dunno about that.
I’m sure that Pac’s “I don’t give a f*ck” attitude in the historic role is what all young gangsters aspire to be, but carrying off the role in a remake will be a challenge for even the best of ’em.
Do you think SouljaBoy will be able to fill 2pac’s shoes in a “Juice” remake?

Melanie Beacham, a Florida woman who had fallen behind in her car payments, was contacted by a debt collector who emailed her, texted her, called her at home, on her cell and at work — over 23 times in one day.
Things took a turn for the worse when the collector began to send messages to the St. Petersburg woman and her friends via Facebook.
Beacham filed a harassment lawsuit against the company and a judge ruled last month that the company can no longer contact Beacham, her family or friends on Facebook or any other social-networking site.

It’s the first court decision of its kind and serves as a warning for debt collectors to tread lightly when using social networks to collect monies owed.
The decision sets a precedence but the original suit, in which Beacham alleges harassment, is still pending in court.
Debt collectors’ use of social media has become a major issue, so much so that other cases are popping up with similar situations.

It’s time of year again. No denying it… bikini season has officially fallen upon us.
If you follow me closely you are quite aware of my plight to shed the pounds. I’ve dropped over 60lbs so far but I dunno if I’ll ever be rocking a bikini!
I admire all who dare to bare all that skin though and they totally motivate me to get it right.
Gabrielle Union tweeted a photo of herself rocking a blue-kini recently, stating she’d just enjoyed a long workout and decided to do a home photoshoot.
