This Show Made Brandy Who She Is Today!, 14 April 2003
Author: leighabc123 from Portsmouth, Virginia

If it wasn't for "Thea," there would be no famous celebrity called "Brandy!" This show was so short lived. I believe this show would have lasted longer if they had someone else besides Thea Vidale to play in it! She is not a good actress. But the other boys who played in this show had great roles since this show. And it seems like Yvette Wilson always play in the same type of sitcoms!
