    Sounds like this show is the blind item!

      Could be. A press release for an upcoming episode mentions Mindy having some big news to tell Danny. Of course that could be something else.

    I still hope for the day that Vanessa Williams and Terry O’Quinn can play a couple on another project. They were so great together on 666!

    Fantastic blog! Do you have any recommendations for aspiring writers?
    I’m planning to start my own blog soon but I’m a little lot on everything.
    Would you propose starting with a free platform like WordPress
    or go for a paid option? There are so many choices out there that I’m totally overwhelmed ..
    Any ideas? Thanks!
