Ragged Isle won the Best Indie Soap Award (Drama), while Pretty claimed the Best Indie Soap Award (Comedy). Bitch-tastic series, Anacostia scooped up two awards for Best Writing (Drama) and Best Guest Appearance (Drama) for ATWT alum Martha Byrne's ball-busting turn as a madam on the serial. Check out the full list of winners after the jump! READ MORE
Alexis Jordan (Martha Byrne) has grown weary of dealing with inept, lower level madams on this week's installment of Anthony Anderson's Anacostia. The question is, will Lexie be able to get rid of Dominique (Pasha Diallo), before Dom and her henchmen can dig up enough dirt to oust the Beltway Madam?
Elsewhere in town, Sean (Anderson) is worried about having kissed an old flame, as he prepares to wed his back-from-the-dead lover. Tortured, ex-supermodel Nicole (Kena Hodges) is on the brink of falling off the wagon, while another Anacostian familiar with substance abuse drama, Salina (Chante Bowser), is dealing with a hellacious community service stint. Then there's the black Karen Fairgate of the D.C. area, aka Mia (Tamieka Chavis), who snaps on a nasty neighbor as she awaits the results of her biopsy. Check out the latest, sudsy episode of Anacostia after the jump!
The black Knots Landing aka Anthony Anderson's mocha-hot webisoap Anacostia is back with its second episode of the season, and As The World Turns/General Hospital alum Martha Byrne is continuing to serve up malevolent fun as nononsense madam Alexis. After seeing Alexis check Dominique (Pasha Diallo), I am starting to believe this ballbuster could have taught Heidi Fleiss a thing or three about business management!
On the other side of town, Sean (Anderson) is caught up in a triangle between his returned-from-the-dead true love Julian (Darnell Lamont Walker) and the nasty, male hooker his dead business partner hired to seduce him. Someone should tell Sean you can't turn a ho into a househusband!
Recovering boozehound (and my fave regular character!) Salina (Chante Bowser) is out of jail, while her pill-popping, former supermodel galpal Nicole (Kena Hodges), is being terrorized over what happened to her husband's baby. If you think those sistahs are having problems, wait 'til their girl Mia (Tamieka Chavis) lets them in on the tragic secret she's beeen hiding from the group. Why isn't this soap on BET, TV One or Logo already?! Watch after the jump!
Martha Byrne ain’t in Oakdale anymore! Oh no she isn’t. Anacostia kicks off its third season with a hard-hitting hook that is sure to have fans tuning in for the rest of the season to find out what happens. I know I will. Watch the season three premiere of Anacostia after the jump!
Former As The World Turns show killer Chris Goutman may not have realized what a superstar he had in Martha Byrne, but Anacostia creator/star Anthony Anderson seems to have figured it out! The pair of creatives met when Byrne hosted the Second Annual Indie Soap Awards, sponsored by We Love Soaps. Anderson, who won for Outstanding Lead Actor that year, asked Byrne to appear in his series and lucky for us she jumped at the chance!
Check out the soapgasmic Season 3 trailer for the scandalous, urban sudser—featuring La Byrne like you've never seen her before— after the jump!
