Hi Diana, I`m Joey. I was your Chauffer while you were seeing Steve. I just wondered how you were.

Years ago, I remember my favorite t.v. show being aired. The show was called Soap. As I recall, my biggest crush back then was Diana Canova. After Soap came I`m a big girl now. So, what happened? I would love to see Diana make a comeback. I truly miss her.
