A few months ago one of my dear friends contacted me via private message on Facebook, she was super excited to inform me that Jaleel White had accepted her friend request. I was puzzled, Jaleel White? She proceeded to tell me that he used to play the nerdy character 'Urkel' who was forever in love with Laura Winslow (Kellie Williams) on the hit show Family Matters. I was happy for her, I mean who doesn't remember Urkel!? I decided I would like to add him to my page also, so I sent a request. Lo and Behold! Mr. White accepted my friend request. I also added him on Twitter because I was curious to see what projects Mr. White may have up and coming. The first thing that gave me pause about this Facebook page after a while is that 'Mr. White' was seemingly fundraising for different 'causes' or particular people, dropping names of stars and industry execs alike. Then it seemed that all of Mr. Whites Facebook friends were in some sort of race to see who could get a phone call from him to hear a kind word. Don't get me wrong, I am a fan of parody pages, fake star pages, etc. because you never know what humor or information you may find. However, when that page starts to use someone else's name and star power to rip people off, I must draw the line.
Morning reminder.....please give it forward for easter
