Another one bites the dust,
And another one gone,
And another one gone,
Another one bites the dust

-Queen "Another One Bites The Dust"

Congratulations are in order for Tatyana Ali. Love That Girl, the four-episode, independent sitcom presentation the woefully-underused The Young and the Restless star appeared in earlier in the year, has received a 26-episode pick up from TV One!   Love That Girl revolves around Tyana (Ali) a divorcee who returns home to Los Angeles to start over fresh in her father's (Y&R alum Phil Morris) real estate firm and re-establishes old friendships. The series will return on Jan 10. Ali, alongside comedian Martin Lawrence and R&B singer/producer Raphael Saadiq serve as executive producers. To get a taste of what's to come, check out the clip below!

YES! YES! YES! The announcement for honorees and nominees at the upcoming 14th Annual Webby Awards went out today, and a MAJOR shout out to the brazilliant peeps behind BET.com's smash hit web series Buppies, which is being honored at the webcast. Buppies creator Julian Breece and producer Aaliyah Williams did the damn thang with this amazing, mocha, web soap opera, along with the talented cast (led byTatyana Ali as Black Carrie Bradshaw, Quinci), and crew. Over 10,000 web series submitted themselves to be honored by the Webbys, but only the cream of the crop made the cut. I cannot WAIT to see what Breece and Williams' shingle Game Theory Productions does next! SO proud to see Buppies get the recognition it deserves.

Other web dramas to be honored are included after the jump. READ MORE
