    If you could take any character from Friends and Lovers out to dinner, who would it be and why?

    I WOULD TAKE TYRELL OUT BECAUSE HE SEEMS LIKE A WONDERFUL MAN WHO KNOWS WHAT HE WANTS AND KNOWS HOW TO TREAT A LADY. I SO ENJOYED HIS CHARACTER AND HIS LOVE FOR SHELBY.

    Momma drama takes over the Duncan clan, as there is still uncertainty about who has fathered the Duncan sisters' new babies. Meanwhile, Orlando Duncan, the family's new CEO and a man with his own baby momma problems, has just developed a new product that may make the millionaire Duncans into billionaires. Orlando only has one obstacle in front of him, and it's not law enforcement or one of his family's many rivals. It's his mother, because she's making the family take sides. Can a civil war within the Duncan family be averted before it tears them apart?

    Lori Johnson makes her mark as an up-and-coming author with After the Dance - the delightful story of a budding romance. Thirty-something Faye thinks the notion of finding a "Mr. Right" is laughable, and has all but given up on the idea of true love. But Carl, the guy next door, feels otherwise. Little do they know it, but soon their lives will take a surprising turn.

    On the eve of the 2012 Grammy Awards, the world learned of a stunning tragedy: Whitney Houston, unquestionably one of the most remarkable and powerful voices in all of music, had been silenced forever. Over the weeks and months that followed, family, friends, and fans alike tried to understand how such a magnificent talent and beautiful soul could have been taken so early and so unexpectedly. Honest and heartbreaking, this is a mother's story of tears, joy, and her greatest love of all: her daughter, Whitney.
