I love trash tv. I really loved when the whole VH-1-type show trend started with comedians commenting on clips of crazy things celebrities and regular people do. And two/one of my favorite commenters was and is Frangela, an hysterical comedy duo who begin and finish each other sentences.
I met Frangela once at the opening of a (fantastic) restaurant I invested in in LA, Susan Feniger's Street. They had also just seen the musical I co-wrote, The Color Purple, so we had a lot to talk about. But three years went by before I saw them again after a friend told me that one half of Frangela, Angela Shelton, came from Detroit and we reunited for "The D". Angela may not be a "singer" but she pumped more spirit into her vocals than almost anyone!
