The one and only Michele Lee sat down with On-Air On-Soaps Michael Fairman, when Michael visited the set, and the home of the director and producer of the hit web series, Fumbling Thru The Pieces. 

In “Fumbling”, Michele Lee plays Eleanor, the mother to series star, Hillary B. Smith who plays Ellie.  And in season two, Eleanor reveals to her daughter that she is gay and brings with her to meet the family, her girlfriend, Janice, played by All My Children alum, Bobbie Eakes!  And from there, some very hilarious and poignant moments ensue.

During our chitchat with Michele, she spoke about playing a lesbian and being part of a web series for the first time in her career, and from there we talked about the best primetime soap of all-time Knots Landing.  We learned if Michele would consider reprising her role of Karen Mackenzie should a cable or network television channel decide to make a “Knots” reboot ala the highly successful Dallas reboot airing on TNT.  We think you will love Michele’s answer!

After the jump, watch Michele’s interview with Michael.  Then let us know if you would love to see a Knots Landing reboot? And, if you have seen Michele’s tour de force performance in Fumbling Thru The Pieces?  If not, you can watch the episodes of the series here.

I wish Knots Landing would come back. That would be magic. I miss the show.

yet a new gay role created by hollywood for an 80s actress highlights the utter disparity between hollywood’s availability and willingness to create lgbt roles and asian american roles. hollywood actors and actresses keep speaking against gay bullying. yet more than 51% of asian american students are bullied. asian americans are the most bullied group! shouldn’t hollywood be speaking abt the bullying towards asian americans if hollywood was really concerned w/ bullying? but what does hollywood do? they conveniently ignore this bec for hollywood the lives of asian american students are irrelevant to them and bec hollywood loves to ridicule and bully asian americans thru their degrading portrayals of them. cnn recently wrote an article that 3% of the american population identify as lgbtq. pew research shows that asian americans make up 3% of the american population and are growing at a greater rate than even hispanics. therefore there should be an equal amount of lgbt characters and asian american characters reflected by hollywood episodic medium. yet the portrayals are pathetic and lopsided to favor lgbt characters. hollywood obviously gives preference to lgbt characters. the few asian american characters are usually supporting and background while many gay characters are given storylines that are designed for lead characters. asian americans have higher education rates than whites and are accomplishing higher graduate degrees than whites. therefore shows that are set at the academe should prominently feature asian american characters but they don’t. the median income of asian americans are higher than whites and highest among all groups. therefore shows that are set at the professional level should feature more asian american characters but they don’t. hollywood’s casting practices highlight their racism against asians americans. the portrayals are worse. asian americans are seldom detailed characters. they are often stereotypes. the asian american female is a. dragon lady b. sexualized for majority white men c. passive. d. usually a background character. while the asian american male is a. asexual b. foreign and accented c. dorky d. martial arts expert. while lgbt roles are more fully fleshed and given respect. the film “the goods” had a group of white characters beat up an asian character as a comedic device. would hollywood ever portray a gay bashing as something as a source of laughs? of course not. that’s hollywood tolerance.

Michelle (Karen) still has it and so does all the other members of Knots Landing. If Dallas is coming back, cant Knotts Landing come back? That would be great.

Christy

oh, please bring back Knott’s Landing (hello CBS, are you listening?!) and yes, put it on a network station so I can watch it… all over again!

I have some old knott’s landing on VHS – it was some special and there was the last show too… but it’s just not enough!

All My Children Alum Kim Delaney Joins The Cast of CHICAGO FIRE!

Pine Valley’s Jenny Gardner, who is all grown up and had a successful career in primetime television and films, has landed a primo role on NBC’s hit drama, Chicago Fire!

Casting news has revealed that Kim Delaney is joining the show in Season 6 where she will play the role of Jennifer Sheridan, the mother of Kelly Severide (Taylor Kinney).

According to Deadline, Kim’s new role as Jennifer Sheridan is described as “warm, scripture-quoting and church-going. At one point she may have partied like it was 1979, but now it looks like she’s on the path of the straight and narrow. If you ask her, she’s moved on from the past, namely her messy divorce from her ex-husband Benny (Treat Williams), but old habits die very hard.”

Chicago Fire is currently on hiatus until after the Winter Olympics, when it begins again on March 1st.  As viewers know, in the last episode prior to the break, Kelly and Casey (Jesse Spenver) were seen jumping off a roof of a building while it was in flames in an exciting cliffhanger. (more…)
