You know that feeling you get when you've just finished a really good novel, or had really good sex? You feel affirmed. Connected. That's how I feel right now after seeing how BET.com's brilliant premiere web series Buppies wrapped its first season. Fresh Prince of Belair and The Young and the Restless star Tatyana Ali did the work of her acting career as Hollywood princess Quinci, in this amazingly drawn season finale of Buppies from the creative mind of Julian Breece.

As previously reported, the actress/producer/Fresh Prince of Belair alum— who also recurs on The Young and the Restless as Roxanne— is starring in Love That Girl, TV One's first foray into scripted television, premiering Jan. 19 at 9 pm (thanks DC reader Smitty for the tip!).

It's Tuesday afternoon. Y'all know what that means, another hot, steaming helping of Buppies! This week's installment sees Derek's (Brooklyn McLinn) trifling ass attempting to apology to Q (Tatyana Ali) for showing up at her party with some other girl. Meanwhile, Nikki (Katrina Wogan) confronts Shaka (Ernest Waddell) about his treatment of her. Is Shaka ashamed that his lady is white and overweight? Wogan and Waddell KILL in their brief, powerful scene. Here I thought Shaka was just comic relief! This web soap keeps leaving me wanting MORE!
