Even more 'Girlfriends' S8 news

From Entertainment Weekly,

"We are calling this 'Joy and Pain Year'," laughs creator Mara Brock Akil, describing 'Girlfriends'' eighth season. With costar Richard T. Jones going to Fox's midseason The Sarah Connor Chronicles, 'Girlfriends' wills send him "off to Iraq," says Akil. Also: "Maya [Golden Brooks] is having a miscarriage. Our stories all sound dramatic, but our writers are turning out some really funny material about some really challenging subjects." Less dramatic: "Lynn [Persia White]--we're putting her on this trajectory to become a rock star," says Akil. White won't be faking it either. "What's wonderful about Persia is, she's a musician. So we're actually moving Lynn's character a little closer to Persia." Just as long as the rock star emulates isn't, oh, Courtney Love... (Oct. 1)

What the fuck?! Maya's not going to have the baby? - How heartbreaking! This is going to be such a sad turn of events for Joan and Maya but it is nice to hear that Lynn will finally do something big time. I have full confidence in Mara Brock Akil's skills to turn this all around and make a great show, but daaaamn. Can't wait til the premiere on October 1st!
