Just because you don’t want to live in the midst of intense drama and theatrics 24/7, doesn’t mean you can’t enjoy watching it unfold for someone else on T.V. And that is where soap operas, aka, “stories,” come in. With plot lines that range from relatable to mythical to some that are just plain ‘ol bizarre (characters are killed off but come back mysteriously), there’s nothing like continuous drama that gets better from week to week. And if it doesn’t get better, there’s always next week to look forward to. So imagine my distaste to the recent news that “One Life to Live” and my beloved “All My Children” (after 40+ years!) were being canceled. What is a weekday morning without a soap!? To celebrate the role that stories have had in many black women’s mornings (preferably on days off I hope), here are five notable daytime drama queens whose fictitious lives and believable acting entertain (or entertained) us every week.

    I simply wish I liked soap operas. But I sincerely HATE them. They've been on the SAME day for at LEAST 5 years with the SAME issue about to "resolve" itself. How can anyone seriously watch these things without going insane? LOL
