I really wish The Bay would come back on. I never thought I’d ever say that Karouche Tran deserved an award….. but SHE DOES!
Seriously, The Bay was super addicting. Sometimes when I’m watching Kayla and Jack on Days, I wish they would bust into their other characters! Especially Matthew Ashford.
Congratulations on all the Noms for that great digital show!

I loved Eric Nelsen on the All My Children reboot – wish one of the four broadcast soaps would hire him! I suspect that Tristan Rogers will repeat his win for Studio City again this year but… Read more »
