March 31, 2011  |  

Ever wish that your favorite T.V. moments could last forever? Well, even if they can’t, sometimes we just ought to go back…back into time…and celebrate those moments! Presenting the top 10 moments in black television…

10. Dwayne Wayne interrupts Whitley Gilbert’s wedding & proposes to her

The silly Dwayne Wayne (played by Kadeem Hardison) who finally grew up and the princess Whitley Gilbert (played by Jasmine Guy) who couldn’t deny her love for him = some of the best television we ever did see. Who could forget how Dwayne Wayne whisked his great love, Whitley away from her wedding to someone else, as Whitley’s mother screamed to Dwayne: “die, just die?” Brilliant, hilarious, stuff.

    When I'm taking a sick day, I lie in bed and go through whole seasons. Now that show is chicken soup for the soul!
