So disapointing: 1) Stacy Haiduk is not nominated 2) Guiding Light at its worst was light years ahead of All My Children and The Bold and the Beautiful 3) Tina Sloane had a great year on GL and deserved a supporting actress nod 4) Drew Tyler Bell?!?!? Really? How about Mick Hazen who can actually act! 5) Bergman can thank Haiduk for his nomination What I Like: 1) Beth Chamberlin getting a nomination even though she had much better years 2)Crystal Chapelle and Mara West, love em both but I think Chapelle has the edge 3)Michael Park deserves a win… Read more »


Rob, I agree. This isn’t a true assessment of talent. When people like Christian Leblanc, peter Bergman, Adrienne Frantz, Justin torkildsen, Ron Carlivati and Brad bell are prior Emmy winners, then it’s a joke. “Actors” like Teri Columbino and have nominations, and “actors” like Farah Fath and Austin Peck get prenominations, so it’s a joke. While hunter Tylo, Kimberlin Brown, Eileen Davidson (circa Days), MTS, Victoria Rowell and Bobbie Eakes have either never been nominated or have never won Emmys, then it’s a joke. Drew Tyler bell’s nomination is a complete joke. One of B&B’s worst actors is its only… Read more »


I am happy to see that Bob Guza was not nominated for writing. I would be shocked and dissappointed if GH wins for best show. GH is a one note with no character developement and the same actors putting in the same performances day after day. I hope they can step up their game and make GH a hot show once again. Get rid of the mob stuff and leave the godfather theme behind, its so old and tired!

I am a fan of Bobbie E’s and Krystal— BUT REALLY– leading actress??? What scenes did they submitt??? I am usually bummed with Krystal lately- as I feel like no one knows what to do with her and how to make her shine. They transformed her from trailer park momma bear to Ruth Martin– which is a HUGE disappointment.


While I’m glad that BK, BW, and SC all got nods for OLTL, I’m very PO’D that the Kish actors got snubbed by the final emmy tally!!!!!! At least all the GH nods are very much deserved this year, not so much for the AMC nods, though.


Congrats, Crystal Chappell !!! So glad she received the Emmy nod for her outstanding work on GL. Crystal is such an amazing actress and a fabulous lady. Her love and dedication to her fans is unparalleled by any other.

Thank you, CC !!! You are the true goddess of daytime television.

…and the winner is … Crystal Chappell


A well deserved nomination for Crystal Chappell. No one brings it like CC does. Not only did she hit it out of the park with her performance as Olivia Spencer on GL, she also revived our interest in daytime drama at a time when it needs it most.

Congratulations Crystal ! You are the best !


As much as I love Billy Miller, I hope Jonathan Jackson takes it because he’s gem on GH. I’m surprised he even came back. I also want Drew Garrett to win and then I want the camera to pan over to the GH crew who decided to let him go. LOL!


Love these nominations especially for Y&R. I’m glad they bounced back after last year of not being nominated last year which was an outrage!!!!!!! Stacy Haiduk………………….WHY THE HELL SHE’S NOT NOMINATED????? Hope Y&R wins Best Drama and Writing. Very happy for Y&R!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I’m happy for B&B for Drama, Directing and Writing but why is DTB nominated for Younger Actor when he hasn’t done anything? B&B could take Drama Series and if so, then GOOD; another win for Brad Bell!!!! I don’t think they’ll get Directing and I’m not too sure about Writing; the death of Betty White’s character was displayed… Read more »

GH’s Gavin Houston Teases How Zeke’s Love Life Is About to Take an Unexpected Turn

Next week on General Hospital, Gavin Houston returns as Portia’s (Brooke Kerr) brother, Zeke.  When viewers last saw Zeke, he was in Port Charles for Portia’a wedding to Curtis (Donnell Turner) back in February.

Fast-forward to June and Zeke is back. However, from the looks of it, Zeke might find love this time around, or is it something more casual?

According to preview in the latest issue of Soap Opera Digest, when Zeke settles in at the Metro Court he grabs a drink at the pool, and while there sees a very attractive woman.

Houston shared on the encounter, “He sees this attractive woman and tries to pick her up by being his fun-loving, charming self.  He buys her a drink and there is definitely some chemistry there.”

However, apparently this woman is someone who his sister, Portia, knows well.  The smart money is that he is hitting on Jordan, who has just walked out on a conversation with her ex-husband, Curtis.  This, following the two kissing and Curtis going back to his marriage with Zeke’s sister. But could the woman Zeke is impressed by be someone else?

Eva Longoria on Reprising Her Role of ‘Desperate Housewives’ Gabby : “I Would Be The First to Sign Up for a Reboot”

Just where would Gabrielle Solis be today? That was the question posed to Eva Longoria, who is on a publicity campaign for her  directorial film debut with Flamin’ Hot.

The former Desperate Housewives star spoke with Access Hollywood’s Mario Lopez, where she revealed where she thinks Wisteria Lane’s Gabby would be today. Longoria chimed in, “She’d be an influencer for sure  … she’d be a social media mogul.”

When asked if she would be down for a revival of Desperate Housewives, Longoria enthusiastically said,  “I would be the first to sign up for a reboot. I miss Gabby so much. I miss being Gabby Ruiz.”

Photo: ABC

Even though, Desperate Housewives ran from 2004-2013, since its premiere 20 years ago times have changed.  The series creator, Marc Cherry, doesn’t seem so ready to bring back Wisteria Lane.

Longoria shared, “He feels like there’s no Why now?” She added that Cherry also expressed, “What do I have to say with these characters that we haven’t already fully mined?”

Soap fans also recall Eva played Isabella on The Young and the Restless from 2001-2003, before joining Desperate Housewives a year later. Flamin Hot, which tells the biographical story of the invention of the Flamin’ Hot Cheetos” is set for release on Hulu and Disney+ on June 9th.

Pride Month Celebrating LGBTQ+ Soap Supercouples: Nuke, Kish, Otalia & WilSon … Which Stands the Test of Time?

June is Pride Month, the time when across the U.S and the world there are celebrations and commemorations to recognize all who identify as LGBTQ and their allies.

Daytime soap operas have had a rocky road when it comes to the representation of same-sex couples.  The soaps have been at one time leaders in portraying key social issues of our time, as well as treading lightly on other subjects, as to its concerns to ‘turn-off’ its core audiences.

When you look back at the groundbreaking first same-sex weddings, and the first gay kiss, the soaps have come far in some ways in their representations of gay characters, but there is always work to be done to serve and to shed light on the under-represented.

As we reflect back to the then and the now, which LGBTQ soap supercouple remains your favorite and had made a lasting impact? Let’s take a look at four duos who captivated many viewers.

Nuke  – Luke Snyder and Noah Mayer – As the World Turns

Van Hansis (Luke) and Jake Silbermann (Noah) were a key part of the evolution of, and representation of LGBTQ character on the soaps.  ‘Nuke’, as they were known as, became the first gay male soap couple to share an on-screen kiss back in 2007.  ATWT also became known as the first soap to depict a fully realized romantic male couple as an integral part of the show.  There was plenty of backlash along the way for the long-awaited kiss to happen, but when it did, the show moved forward to tell their love story.

Otalia – Olivia Spencer and Natalia Rivera Aitoro – Guiding Light

When Crystal Chappell (Olivia) and Jessica Leccia (Natalia) began to play the love story of Otalia, they had to show their affection by a kiss on the head, or holding hands.  It took quite some time for GL to move forward to have two women, two moms, no less, share a lip lock. The complicated love story featured Natalia being conflicted to face her true romantic feelings for Olivia, because of her value system and religions upbringing, and that made this all the more riveting and frustrating at the same time.  In the end, the rabid fan base for this duo was so great that Chappell wound up creating her own series, Venice, to honor and serve them, remaining one of the LGBTQ communities greatest allies.

Kish – Kyle Lewis and Oliver Fish – One Life to Live

In 2009, One Life to Live’s Kyle Lewis (Brett Claywell) was an out lab tech in Llanview, who back in college had a relationship with Officer Oliver Fish (Scott Evans).  It imploded when Oliver denied he was gay.  For years, Oliver remained in the closet, before finally coming out to himself and Kyle.

Kish had been a big success with the media and One Life’s gay audience. LGBTQ-advocacy groups honored the couple and the story.  However, Kish was cut short when the network felt that the data showed that the storyline was not resonating with the show’s core audience.

WilSon – Will Horton and Sonny Kiriakis – Days of our Lives

Days of our Lives delivered daytime’s first-ever gay male wedding in 2014, between Will (then played by Guy Wilson) and Sonny (then played by Freddie Smith).

In an interview with EW, Days of our Lives executive producer, Ken Corday shared on the union, “Will and Sonny have been together for a while and it was the natural progression of their love story. We didn’t feel like there was anything we could or couldn’t do, we treated them like any other couple on the canvas and continued to grow their romance as such.”

In addition, the coming out story of Will Horton was critically praised and noteworthy for the performances of Chandler Massey, who won three Daytime Emmys for his work in the Outstanding Younger Actor category 2012, 2013 and 2014.  Freddie Smith also won in the same category in 2015.  Will has been played over the years by Chandler Massey and Guy Wilson, while Sonny has been portrayed by Freddie Smith and Zach Tinker.

There have been several other key LGBTQ couples throughout the course of daytime history including All My Children’s Bianca (Eden Riegel) and Reese (Tamara Braun). These two characters were involved in the first same-sex lesbian wedding on daytime. Problem was … Reese kissed Zach (Thorsten Kaye) before the wedding, making this infuriating for viewers at home.

Other notable LGBTQ couples through the years have included: Bianca and Maggie on All My Children, Mariah and Tessa of The Young and the Restless played bv Camryn Grimes and Cait Fairbanks, Maya and Rick on The Bold and the Beautiful, Lucas and Brad on General Hospital and others.
