It would be so very, very, easy for me to be upset and bitter about the cancellation of “Romantically Challenged”. But… I’m not upset or bitter. Don’t get me wrong; I have moments throughout the day, when I think to myself, “Wait. What the hell just happened?” But luckily those moments are fleeting. And I am well aware that I’m in a business that sometimes makes decisions that are inexplicable. Dealing with those decisions is almost just as much a part of the job as memorizing my dialogue. My only true sadness comes from not being able to see Ricky, Mr. Burrows, Josh, Kelly and Kyle’s face every day. I will miss them like crazy. I already do, actually. Just writing that last sentence made me tear up a bit.
I find great solace in the fact that I did everything I could for the show’s success. We ALL did everything we could do and we can feel good about that. And since I’ve always been a glass half full kind of girl, I think something kind of magical came out of this whole experience. A community was built on hope and a common goal via Twitter. There was no way I could ever delete the RomChallenged Twitter account. That account was always yours. We just kept it updated. I have just switched it over to the official Alyssa.com account (http://twitter.com/AlyssaDotCom) so we can keep the community together. It will still be yours. I will keep it updated and I will continue to follow anyone that wants to be a part of our community.
Again, I can’t thank you enough for all of your tireless efforts on behalf of the show. I can safely speak for the entire cast and Ricky when I say, we were all so touched and moved by everything you did! Thank you. Thank you. Thank you.
I hope to be in your living rooms again real soon. Until then, you know where to find me.
