A MAJOR shout out to Imaginary Bitches leading lady Eden Riegel who took home the People's Voice Webby Award for Best Individual Performance! Imaginary Bitches is the brainchild of Riegel's not-so-imaginary hubby Andrew Miller, who is currently hard at work polishing the first draft of the You Tube hit's big screen adaptation. One day we'll be able to say we knew 'em when!
She may have just wrapped up an All My Children storyline so craptastic not even Tyler Perry would turn it into a sitcom for TBS, but luckily for Eden Riegel and her fans—of which I am one, even though she shamefully encouraged block voting to steal my TV Guide Canada Soap Opera Spirit Award last year— she was written for fantastically on the web in her husband Andrew Miller's smash hit You Tube series Imaginary Bitches.

Due to the enormous volume of voters the Webby Awards site is receiving, you might have trouble getting on, but be persistent! You have until midnight to vote. The future will be webivised! READ MORE

Pratt Falls creators Ellen and Portia, otherwise known as grrarrgghh on YouTube, sat down with On Air on Soap's Michael Fairman to discuss how their soap world web sensation was created.
How did you two get the idea to start Pratt Falls? How did you come about the Xtranormal animations?
PORTIA: After reading Pratt's TV GUIDE interview where he throws Eden Riegel under a bus, we simultaneously experienced the urge to slap Pratt. And that resulted in the satirical smack down now known as PRATT FALLS. READ MORE
