  2. Gwyneth those are some good ones. I don’t know how I forgot about Rene & Angela. Whatever happened to Total?
    I thought I was the only one who liked The Deal…I have the tape somewhere in a bag…I just don’t have anything to play it on. I remember the video they used to play on BET all of the time. Got me going back down memory lane (no pun intended…another Minnie Ripleton favorite 🙂 )
