OMG, CHIIIIIIIIIIIIILLLD, I would tell my 18 year old self that life is MORE than “BEING FABULOUS”…. the bill don’t come in RAINBOW, honey so you’ve got to be MORE THAN FABULOUS… you’ve got to be YOURSELF and let go of the EXTRA!! PLUS, you are NOT CAPTAIN SAVE THE PLANET…. you can’t help those who don’t want to be helped!! STOP MAKING YOURSELF THE COMMUNITY HELP CENTER!!

Vanessa’s webisodes of itcof are very enlightening! I love the way Donald said, he thought he knew everything at age 18 and how you couldn’t tell him anything! It’s true, you do think you know it all when you are 18, at least I did! And Salli and her husband Dondre made an interesting point about the young girls of today. . . they are much sharper than what we were at age 8 through 18. My Goddaughter Kayla Starr, has it together. She knew what she wanted to be at age 5! A singer. And now at the age of 22, She doesn’t like anything deter her. I could have learned a thing or two from her; maybe I wouldn’t have started my career so late in the game! Great web! Keep it up, Vanessa!

I knew nothing of this web series and somehow it found me. I love love love Vanessa Bell Calloway she’s an awesome actress a beautiful woman and now I know that she is a great cook. The series absolutely allows for fans like me to know more about the personalities of the people we love to watch on our favorite tv shows, films etc. In The Company of Friends is an absolute delight!!!
