Sorry to hear that, Lorsie!

Oh that's right, SM was on S-b-S. I remember Cody, "duuuude", lol.

Suzanne was, yes, but regarding Valerie, it rocked Hollywood because it was the first time a seemingly untouchable star ("They can't fire me, I'm the show's title!") on an eponymous series was fired from their own show.

"reduced"? I see what you mean, but, since being banished from TC, that woman has done nothing but roll in dough --- and I ain't talkin' the kind of dough at Edna's Edibles! It's amazing how rich that gadget and all of her books and money-handling have made her (I wouldn't mind being able to call her "Aunt Suzanne", haha).
