    #8-Cool taping…WAS THAT REALLY FREDDIE JACKSON??
    #7-Another excellent role for the GREAT DW
    #6-Seems like an excellent choice…wonder who’ll play the other Supremes?
    #5-DW-The Proud Papa
    #4-Can see both sides of this dilema.

    Faith Evans looks good for the part but I think Tisha Campbell looks more the part.
