    I love Susan Sarandon! Also “Queen of Jordan” is what Tracy’s wife Angie’s reality show is called. Just FYI. “It’s my way ’til payday!”

  3. Michael says:

    I really hope they turn Queen of Jordan into at least a webseries because man, I will watch that!

  4. Alison C says:

    Glory Daze canceled? It’s a bit stupid UK channel E4 (Which shows HIMYM, BBT, Smallville, Friends, 90210, etc) imported this show recently, only for it to be canceled so soon.
