Jessie and Angie

Well nothing lasts forever, and that means even for what is perhaps televison's longest running black romance. (though, as a friend of mine who watches it told me, it was one that was prone to random ridiculousness).

I'm talking about those lovebirds, Jesse Hubbard and Angie Baxter, played by Darnell Williams and Debbie Morgan on All My Children. They've been an item since, believe it not, 1982. That's longer than most marriages nowadays for sure. Alas their love is finally coming to an end.

Back in July ABC made a deal with an independent production company, Prospect Park, to keep the show ruinning online on the company's planned Online TV Network when ABC ends its run of the show in January.

However Prospect Park announced today that it has cancelled those plans since it wasn't able to secure financing and make deals with all the talents unions involved to keep the show running in time before the network ends its broadcast run of the show on January 13, 2012

So mark your calenders to say goodbye and thanks for the memories.
