What is quickly becoming the Emmys for the webisoap community, the Annual Indie Soap Awards are being held tonight in Gotham, and to say the nominees are pumped, would be an understatement on par with saying the DeVanity siblings are just a wee bit dysfunctional!
Anacostia creator/leading man Anthony Anderson (who I am forever trying to rename Anthony Edwards for some odd reason!) is predicting the cast of his sizzling, mocha take on classic primetime soaps like Peyton Place and Knots Landing, will stun on the red carpet tonight. Anderson tweeted:
Starting to get ready for tonight's Indie Soap Awards #anacostia we gonna rock that red carpet @WeLoveSoapsTV READ MORE
For those of you who have been salivating over the trailers and teasers for the upcoming webisoap River Ridge— like I have—there's some amazing news to report!

Secrets of a Small Town. Our pals over at We Love Soaps TV have an interview up with the creative spirits behind the upcoming web drama River Ridge. Listening to creator Tyler Ford talk about his product is crazy inspiring. Dude knows his shiz!
River Ridge stars such bold face daytime names as Signy Coleman (who also serves as an executive producer for the vehicle), Julie Pinson, Beth Ehlers, Shannon Sturges and Jon Prescott. According to the synopsis, the serial is "the interwoven kaleidoscope of the residents of a small east coast town and their familiar and relatable circumstances are explored in the socially conscious drama series River Ridge." Uh, yeah...sign me up!
