Why Why Why my favorit show "Drop Dead Diva". Why did Jake have to invade that show. Next we'll have Vienna on there. First DWS and now Diva. Before long that won't be anything I will be able to watch on tv. Jake, please don't go on Army Wives. That's my last show. Please don't take that away no no talent no body. Take your whatever she is and go back to Texas, please.

Pamela was actually on the Boston Police Department not Atlanta. I hope none of this is true I would hate for Pamela to leave Army Wives.
