Of course, being as how Crystal seems to really like Rashad, this complicates her obligatory relationship with Darkanian.

Spike, Buffy and Angel in Buffy the Vampire Slayer - Part of the WB's lineup of drama-filled teen shows, Buffy the Vampire Slayer makes today's soapy vampire drama's look like amateurs as the stakes (pun intended) were high when it came to the main character: she was a vampire slayer in love with two vampires. Earlier in the series her main love interest was the provocative Angel, but later she took a liking for the vicious Spike, making her job all too complicated.

Ron Isley (Mr. Biggs), R. Kelly and Chante Moore in "Contagious" - In 2001, Ron Isley made a comeback and recruited none other than R. Kelly and Chante Moore to appear alongside him on this sordid song about discovering your spouse's infidelities.

Even better, the video and lyrics refer to Ron Isley and R. Kelly's previous collaborations, "Down Low" and "Friend of Mine" (remix).   (Photo: SKG Music LLC)

Let's Stay Together

Drew, Derwin and Melanie in The Game - The various make-ups and break-ups between Melanie and Derwin initially started with Derwin's affair with Drew. To be frank, there were several other parties involved but it was convenient to leave it at just these three since they were the catalysts. Life can be hard in professional football.
