Were can I view Fumbling Thru The Pieces??? Never heard of it before till now..I miss her as Nora on OLTL..She was the best on OLTL…………Her & Bo & their dancing sequences on OLTL & their favorite food burgers and fries !!!!!!! And their chemistry together as a couple…………………And Nora & Bo’s love for Matthew & the between the both of them…..And Bo’s nickname for Nora which was RED!” Nora & Bo were so good together….The scenes between Nora & Lindsey where explosive…..I think Lindsey was jealous of Nora..And the men in her life..I prefer her as NORA!!!!!! And alway’s will…

Can you only view this on line not on the tv ???????? Prefer it if it was on the T.V. because it is free…………..


You can watch “FTTP” right here ——–>


Thanks for the wonderful interview with Hillary B Smith. So enjoyed her on OLTL over the years !! Had the pleasure of seeing her in NYC play last fall. Fumbling Thru the Pieces is a funny webseries & I’m enjoying seeing HBS in this role.

I know she is doing other stuff but I like her as Nora best of all….I prefer Nora from her role on B&B and this one too !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


What a pleasant interview, Michael. Have always loved Hillary. She is so natural. Just like Bob Woods. They were a perfect match on OLTL which I sorely miss. I am glad she is happy and continuing the work that she loves and does so well.

What a wonderful interview…thanks Michael. It’s great seeing Hillary and I am happy to know that she is doing well and enjoying herself! I love Venice and am anxiously awaiting the next season and I still need to catch up on Fumbling. I do miss seeing Bob and Hillary together on screen as Bo and Nora. They truly are the best soap couple! I heard that Bob is going to be on The Grove…..Hillary producing…perhaps she will show up as a character that is involved with him!!


Great interview. HBS is awesome and right – we fans just love to be able to see her in any role. she can play them all if give the chance. FTTP second season was truly worth the wait! HBS did an great job in Any Given Monday! Miss her as Nora, but look forward to seeing her in other roles as well. B&B should consider expanding her character! Guya is a very interesting, deep character! Keep doing what you do! and thanks for being so AWESOME and CARING to us FANS! Best to you always! Take Care HBS!! Thank you Michael! Your sight is the best!


opps! Miichael I meant your WEBSITE is the best!! :o)

I saw on yesterday a Vhs tape about OLTL. It’s some of the popular weddings from OLTL soap & its about 45minutes………………It cost $2 & change but there are only 3 left..I would like it better if it were on dvd instead ..Vhs tape doesn’t last as long as a dvd…..Maybe they will put it on dvd sometime…


PLEASE ask her if my all time favorite sitcom SOMETHING WILDER going to be on DVD or be available on the internet like youtube or Hulu. (Or send me a copy:) I have a few episodes on tape and would love to have all of them including the three which never aired.

When you live in Stockbridge and Alice Cooper is your neighbor life can’t get any better. 😉

He expressed: “Welcome to the world, little one …. it’s a scary place sometimes, and i so wish i could have been there to show you all the good stuff. Your mother loves you,and will take care of you and teach you …. watch out for her her for me will ya?”

Aaawww.  So many GH fans have been touched by the gesture, and how nice it is that it makes the whole journey and end of Nathan’s West story heartbreaking and bittersweet.
