Firstly. I want to give a big hug out to Michael.
His interviews are genius.. He asks the questions we want to hear the answers to.
And– here, right her is my favorite soap hangout with Michael and his good stuff 🙂
And– the freedom he aloweles us..

My favorite interview was with Mal..
I liked hearing his ideals and simply being introduced to Mal; the man behind the curtain.

Y&R is on a roll to glory.. I am enjoying Y&R very much for the 1st time in a very long time.
I’m looking forward to the next day every day, and that is a very good thing..

(( I recall the year I slept through Y&R, no longer! thanks Mal ..

oh gosh… I’ve tried to pinpoint when I left.. and that never would be my ways and means… @Y&R after Sharon and Adam… came back from New Orleans… and they broke up.. I was turned.. and had it. up to the gills… that’s when GH entered the picture. alas.. i’m so keyed up @letting ABC / Disney / GH know when a travesty is being dealt… Frank Valentini must be held accountable…

he is knowingly and in our face laying waste a great show

General Hospital

The year(s) I slept through Y&R were the years Jean and Shelly ..
The Queens of Snooze..
((then GH took them in and GH became snooze land and Shelly still has her sleeper hold on GH ..

0oohh remember the Music Box story bwahaa a year long and still no ending,, and that is but one of many..


Happy 45th!


Happy 45th I may be running fast with the pace but hey it is still with us still hope this Jack not being a Abbott is a twist not true after all!


I have been so excited and nervous these past 10 days, I was actually scared to watch the Y&R…..I subscribe to CBS All ACCESS …..MAL Young has brought the life back into the Y&R….who knew but the Brita know how to write story… not believe anything for the internet, and stay away from the soap spoilers..they are just garbage…..I love the 45th A. Shows, i have only seen one show…..though…..Peter Bergman deserves the Emmy for this year and for next year too…….he is on fire, who knew he could be so mean and funny at the same time……,I just love Marla Adams.too.kudos……to the cast…I could never ever be mad at Eric Braden.. Victor N is the ultimate actor…..he deserves a Lifetime Emmy award for just being a man’s man..Eric Braden is the best of the best.

Heather Locklear Sent To Hospital For Psych Evaluation After Threatening To Harm Herself

Former Dynasty and Melrose Place star, Heather Locklear is back in the news Monday morning with another troubling report from

Reportedly, Locklear was hospitalized in Thousand Oaks, California on Sunday.  Her mother called 911 claiming the actress was threatening to kill herself, and acting erratically.

In the dispatch audio call that was made public by TMZ, it seemed that her mother claimed that Locklear was “agitated and violent.”  She also added that Heather was, “trying to hurt herself and looking for a gun to shoot herself, even though she does not have access to any weapons.”

Both the Ventura Country Fire and Sheriff’s Department were dispatched to Locklear’s home.

A source close to Heather reportedly said that the actress was agitated during the day, so her parents went over to her home to check on her. According to the report, that’s when Locklear got violent, choking her mother and hitting her father.

Locklear was arrested months ago on a felony charge for domestic violence and three counts of misdemeanor battery on a police officer following a domestic dispute with her boyfriend.  The domestic abuse charges were dropped in March. Locklear was in rehab in April, while her attorneys pleaded not guilty to battery on her behalf.

Back in 2008, there was a report that Locklear was also suicidal. The Melrose Place and Dynasty star has had a history of substance abuse.

So, what do you think of the latest troubles for Heather? Comment below.
