Kim Zimmer, I love you and I miss you and GL and ATWT so much. It was like 2 deaths, as I remember first watching both soaps with my grandmother. I was so disappointed when you turned down the role of Katherine’s faux daughter and I was equally disappointed with the short-lived air-time Maura West was given. That said, I did and do enjoy Marcy Rylan and Jeff Branson on Y&R. I would much rather see former CBS soap stars in new or recast roles on Y&R instead of vets from other networks, but I understand other network fans probably… Read more »

Do you think there is anyway Oprah would consider NOW putting OLTL and AMC on her network? It would give her the viewership she wants!!!!!

MAB drives me NUTS!!! As Miss Zimmer said, there are a lot of ex-soap stars looking for work. She also has actors on her own show with nothing to do!!! What will it take to make this woman see the mess she is making of this once great soap?

Lew, their is nothing ! Her last name is Bell she to my knowledge has no writing experience she has arrogance and I am never wrong attitude! You know why she hired Catherine Bach she knew her from children’s daycare, oh wow what a resume. I hate talking this woman down as much as I do but with soaps dying and we are down to 4 people. CBS, Sony somebody step up and STOP THE MADNESS!!! By the way Ms. Zimmer would have knocked the role Catherine Bach got out of the ballpark, her & Eric Braeden dynamite.

MAB is clueless. I don’t mean to be mean, but she and her minions are destroying this treasure of a show. When will the madness stop? When will the decision makers save Y&R before it becomes too late?

Like Brett Butler, but Y&R has a big, bloated cast. Also agree with Kim Zimmer (The Kim Zimmer!?) there are ALOT of talented, missed, loved, soap actors who could use the gig. As a viewer, i would prefer to see these soap stars, even for a brief stint.

Really? Like this is supposed to be worthy of news? Give me one of my beloved soap stars without a sopa home and THAT will be news worth crowing about; not an I-haven’t-seen-her-for so-long-I-almost-forgot-who-she-is-“star”. Yawn.

‘That’s A Wrap’ For Dynasty’s Elizabeth Gillies & Adam Huber As They Share Farewells

The fifth and final season of CW’s Dynasty is currently playing out with the series finale to air in the early fall.

However, filming on the show wrapped this past week for series star Elizabeth Gillies (Fallon) and her on-screen husband, Adam Huber (Liam).  Each of them took to their Instagrams to share heartfelt goodbyes and ‘thank you’s’ for the journey they traveled as part of the reboot of the classic ABC primetime soap opera with its own twist.

Huber shared his thoughts, when he expressed: “That’s a wrap!! When I got the call in 2017 that I was going to be flying out to Atlanta to join the show DYNASTY for a few episodes I had no idea what it would turn into. 4 years of my life and 84 episodes later is what happened. I am beyond grateful for this show. This is the first time I’ve ever really been apart of something like this. I’ve learned a lot. I’ve cried a lot. And I’ve made friendships that will last a lifetime.

A huge thank you to anyone and everyone who was with me on this journey. Thank you to my friends and family for your non stop love and support. My manager and agents who are absolute rockstars. The crew that wakes up day after day working lonnnng hours so we can have a finished product. The writers, directors and producers for making this show the success that it is. The casting director for saying “I think I found our Liam” The entire cast for being so welcoming from the first day I stepped foot on set. The day players, extras, stand ins, all of you!!

And gigantic thank you to all the fans!!! Thank you for staying with us the whole time during this wild ride. Without you watching and binging on whatever platform you watch the show on, we would have not been able to bring you 5 seasons and 108 episodes of DYNASTY craziness. Thank you so much. From the bottom of my heart. This has been an experience I will never forget! 🖤Ps…new episode tonight!! I hope you enjoy the rest of the season! It’s going to be a lot of fun!”

Gillies, simply brought out her inner-Fallon with her Instagram post which said, “Every day, I take one man’s dirt and turn it into diamonds. And digging up insider info is even easier when they assume you work for the airline, instead of owning the plane. Bon Voyage, Fallon 🥂”

Elizabeth’s co-stars were quick to heap praise on the talented actress/singer/director (she directed the two most recent episodes of the series). Rafael de La Fuente who plays Sammy Jo, expressed: ‘What a gift for me to get to work with you for five years. Forever a fan, forever family.”

Pop superstar, Arianna Grande, a longtime friend, and Broadway co-star with Gillies in the musical 13, posted: “Oh my.congratulations, my Liz, on completing this massive and magnificent chapter with Fallon.  she is / you are utterly spectacular. !!!!!!!!! love youuu. sm.”

You can check out their farewell posts below.

So, sad to know that Liz and Adam have wrapped their run as the fifth and final season of Dynasty is coming to a close? Share your thoughts in the comment section.
