Former Drama Stars Provide Lots Of Drama In New Series

Fans of day and primetime dramas series know that it’s not unusual for this type of program to have what’s known as a “rotating cast”. Or in layperson terms, show characters appear and disappear without much warning. Never before mentioned spouses and siblings suddenly show up in town, sometimes in spite of the fact that they’re dead. Characters can suddenly vanish from these shows as well, dictated by storyline or actor choices. And when a “soap” actor does move on, what are his or her professional choices? A few lucky ones like Kathleen Turner, Morgan Freeman, and Tommy Lee Jones become big box office names, scoring Oscar nominations and wins along the way. But what becomes of the many lesser-known actors who are on and then gone from a drama?

Some of them show up on other dramas, moving from show to show, trying to stay ahead of this declining genre. And others, as the new reality show Queens Of Drama shows, take the bull by the horns, and try to create new programming within this genre tailored to them. Queens of Drama is a non-scripted program that debuted on the POP cable network on April 16, 2015. The premise of the show has five actresses with both daytime and primetime acting experience joining forces to create, develop and “shop” around the pilot for a new, woman-centric drama. The show’s joke is that in attempting to create and market this new program, this “show runners” room becomes the real soap opera as the actresses unwittingly began acting like former characters.

As the “show runners”, the program features Vanessa Marcil ( General Hospital, Las Vegas ) , Hunter Tylo ( The Bold And The Beautiful ) , Crystal Hunt ( The Guiding Light, One Life To Live ) , Chyrstee Pharris ( Passions ) , and Lindsey Hartley ( Passions, All My Children, and Days of Our Lives ). Agreeing that they need a more famous actress to act as the group’s pitchwoman, the actresses enlist Donna Mills ( Knots Landing ). “Complications” quickly ensue when Mills takes over. The POP network has renewed the show for a second season, adding two more actresses to the ensemble.

While all of the actresses get a chance to shine over the ten episode season, Crystal Hunt in particular was singled out for critical praise for her series work. Over the course of the season, she entered into a catty rivalry with Lindsey Hartley. Hunt also ran afoul of Donna Mills on the show, who called in fellow nighttime serial icon Joan Collins ( Dynasty ) to put Hart in her place when Mills thought Hart was “sabotaging” her efforts.

And in addition to television series work, Hunt has been busy elsewhere. She appeared in 2015’s Magic Mike XXL, and co-produced the independent horror film Talbot County. In addition to her television and film work both in front of and behind the camera, Hunt has worked as an entrepreneur and businesswoman in her native Florida. IMDb has the full list of what Crystal Hunt has done in her career.  You can also see Crystal’s acting reel on YouTube.

Boy Booted From School Due to His Genetics, Parents Claim

Eleven-year-old Colman Chadam was a happy elementary student; that is until an incident that occurred at his school in October 2011. Chadam had no idea what was going on when his teacher removed him from class and informed him that he would no longer be allowed to attend school.

James and Jennifer Chadam, Colman’s parents, claimed that Villanova school officials and the Palo Alto Uniformed School District informed them that their son would no longer be allowed to attend school because their son had cystic fibrosis. He had previously attended Jon Urbana’s Next Level Lacrosse Camp and even helped out with his new GoFundMe campaign, which many of you probably read about when Bloomberg wrote Jon Urbana aims to support Earth Force Inc through Go fund me campaign

Mr. and Mrs. Chadam were in a state of shock. Colman had tested positive for genetic markers of the disease but did not have an active case of cystic fibrosis.

Cystic fibrosis is a disease that leads to a build-up of thick mucus throughout the body, particularly in the lungs and bowels. Those diagnosed with the disease frequently develop infections that are contagious and particularly harmful to others who might have cystic fibrosis as well.

The Chadams were mortified. They quickly enrolled Colman in another school district and filed a lawsuit against the PAUSD, citing violations of the Americans with Disabilities Act. The suit was thrown out of federal court, and the Chadams filed an appeal.

The case has raised numerous issues regarding if and how genetic information should be shared. The genetic markers were annotated in Colman’s medical records when he was an infant. The school district did not bring the issue to question until 2010.

The school district told reporters that other students in Colman’s school at the time had active cystic fibrosis.

“The Cystic Fibrosis Foundation has stated that those with cystic fibrosis often cross-infect others,” a spokesman for the school district said.

The Chadams will continue to argue that the school district violated their son’s first amendment rights by informing others that Colman had the disease.

Why Conservative Stereotypes Don’t Describe Dick and Betsy DeVos

Many people are fond of judging wealthy people by their political affiliations, family name, religious beliefs or by simply judging a book by its cover. Unfortunately, many Americans would pre-judge an individual who is a proud:

-Family-man, and

…and write him off without a second thought. 

In addition, there are many in our culture who would hear those descriptors and completely decide that a person like this must be selfish, greedy, closed-minded and could care less about the community he was a part of. However, there is perhaps no sentence less descriptive of Dick DeVos, than the last one. 

In fact, many people that profess to be liberal and open-minded don’t make a habit of sharing their wealth with others or giving back to their local community with their time. In addition to giving back to his community and bestowing an unending stream of significant charitable donations throughout local and national organizations; Dick and his wife Betsy also made a choice to honor Dick’s parents’ legacy of kindness.

The DeVos family is one of the wealthiest in America. Richard DeVos, the patriarch of the family, was one of the cofounders of the popular company Amway. Amway, like Avon, provided home business owners with a highly-desirable product line with a great reputation to sell to their neighbors and associates. This enabled many people to avoid the corporate rat race and build their own home businesses long before computers made it easy for many. Amway features a wide variety of products that make daily life much easier and are well-loved by consumers all over the world.

In addition to building a successful corporation, the DeVos family has earned a solid reputation for philanthropy throughout the world. Though devout Christians and proud members of the Reformed Church of America, the DeVos family hasn’t limited their giving to religious based organizations either. Instead, they fund major learning institutions, neighborhood revitalization programs, public school districts, domestic violence organizations, organizations that support the fine arts and so much more.

Congratulations to all the local residents and businesses who work hard to make West Michigan an incredible place to live, work, and visit!

Posted by Dick DeVos on Tuesday, January 26, 2016

After graduating from the Michigan Forest Hills Public School District and Northwood University where he focused on business; Dick completed both the Harvard and Wharton Executive Study Programs. He then took his business knowledge and worked for the family businesses, (Amway and the Orlando Magic Basketball Team), for several years. In fact, he was CEO throughout years of major growth and expansion at Amway. So as you can see, though conservative and wealthy, generic stereotypes just don’t suit Dick and Betsy.

Improving Dog Health Through Healthy Food

Recent news indicates that we are entering the next level in whole pet care through healthy food. In fact, pet owners are starting to realize that healthy foods can not only improve our pets’ quality of life, but can also allow them to live longer. Since dogs have historically been eating so badly, who really knows how much longer our furry friends can live if they were to eat healthy most of their lives. In addition, healthy foods are readily accessible to anyone shopping at stores like:


-Dollar General,



-Safeway, or

-Just about any major Purina Store in the US

This is because brands like Beneful are widely available and don’t cost much more than generic brands that are full of preservatives, unhealthy meats and artery clogging fats.

Though many new dog health food brands require:

-Knowledge about feeding your dog raw foods safely,

-Access to online or specialty store shopping, or

-A large shopping budget,

Beneful is easy to use. And though you might want to refrigerate the food after you open it; it also comes in simple packaging and doesn’t require any special treatment.

Why the Change?

In the past two decades, consumers have started to realize that typical dog food brands feature some of the unhealthiest ingredients known to man including:

-Low quality, intestine clogging starches;

-Fats and gristle from the worst parts of unhealthy animals; and

-Very low lean meat content,

Ironically, many brands on Facebook even feature vegan soy meat substitutes in lieu of real meat. However, though the soy meat substitutes could have been healthy for animals, the soy typically came from low-quality, genetically modified sources and was doused in fluids, fats and gristle from unhealthy meats to trick pets into thinking they were eating real meat. Even the least health conscious person could see that ingredients like these can clog up any animals’ arteries and cause intestinal issues.

For most modern pet owners, it isn’t a matter of spending money frivolously on fancy packages of gourmet dog foods; it’s just a matter of wanting to give an animal they love healthy, clean food, without giving him or her ongoing health problems.



Dogs Lovers Line Up For Premium Quality Dog Food

A dog food that is actually taste tested by humans? Yes, that’s what’s happening these days in the brave new world of premium dog food. The competition in is this quickly growing market (sales have skyrocketed up 45 percent since 2009), is heating up, as customers become more selective about the kinds of food they feed their canine friends.

Today the top brands like Beneful in this highly competitive business are using blends of organic fruits, vegetables and grains in their kibble mixes, along with high quality meats, fish and chicken. The result is a tasty blend that is actually palatable for humans, which helps a lot in the testing kitchen as these premium foods are prepared.

Competition Gets Frisky For Premium Dog Food Brands

There’s no question the market is heating up for these high quality dog foods. Blue Buffalo, which recently went public, is a premium brand that is now expected to see $1 billion in sales in the coming weeks. Beneful is another high quality brand that is stepping up its commitment to providing the very best in nutritious, quality food for canines.

Beneful on purinastore uses a special blend of highest quality grains, fruits and vegetable like Spinach in its kibble and canned foods. These ingredients are mixed with choices of salmon, beef or chicken to create a tasty food that helps dogs stay strong and healthy with lustrous, shiny coats.

Yes, these high quality dog foods from Beneful are great for a puppy dog’s health, but they come at a premium level price point, too. What manufacturers are realizing, though, is that dog lovers are willing to pay a bit extra to ensure the health and happiness of their beloved pets.
