Heartbreaking news on Tuesday. Beloved soap actress and star of Edge of Night, Ann Flood, has passed away at the age of 87.  The announcement came from Flood’s longtime EON castmate, Sharon Gabet (Ex-Raven) who revealed the actress died a few days ago on October 7th.

Sharon shared via her Facebook page, “With great sadness… I found out yesterday that our dear ANN FLOOD passed away on October 7. She now joins her husband of 61 years and the rest of my beloved cast mates already in heaven. What a FABULOUS LIFE she had and what a party they all must be having!  Here are a couple shots of Ann and Herb from my 1984 wedding and a shot from a company party for The EDGE of NIGHT. It just doesn’t seem possible… 😢. How fitting that we are currently posting lost scenes from one of Ann’s best story lines – The Bryson Clinic.”

Flood joined the cast of CBS’s The Edge of Night in 1962 as Nancy Karr and remained with the soap through its transitional times; including the move to ABC where it became ‘Edge of Night’.  When the show was eventually canceled back in 1984, Flood was its longest-running cast member.

The actress also appeared on other daytime soaps throughout her career including: From These Roots, Another World, Search for Tomorrow, All My Children and As the World Turns.

Ann is survived by her three sons and one daughter from her marriage to the late Herb Granath, who passed away in 2019.

This is such sad news. She, along with Maeve McGuire were two of my favorites. Rest in peace.

Oh my goodness–she projected such class and grace as Nancy; I remember her portrayal very well. Sad, sad news. As I said when Kathryn Hays passed away, I know this is going to happen, my old faves will pass on, it’s just the natural progression of things–but that doesn’t make it any easier to get this kind of news.

You said it because I remember EON as part of my CBS daytime lineup and remember fondly being in middle school when it moved to ABC. Sadly, I didn’t follow EON to ABC but I did follow SFT to NBC. The original beginning of the skyline on EON was the skyline of Cincy, I’m from Ohio.

I am so very sorry to hear this news. I was not a regular Edge of Night viewer but saw it from time to time. I enjoyed her character. She character came across as very strong and trustworthy. I also remember her from several TV commercials including Good Seasons salad dressing. She certainly had a long, varied and successful career.

Deepest sympathy to her family and friends. May she rest in peace.

My mother was a HUGE fan of Edge and Ann Flood. I was delighted to be able to share with my Mom that I had the privilege to meet her beloved Nancy Karr years later. She was beautiful inside and out. A phenomenal woman. My heartfelt condolences to her awesome daughter Karen, and the rest of her family. I am so very, very sorry for your loss. — Wiley

OMG, so loved her on most of the shows mentioned, especially Edge. It was the one Soap my husband would watch as it was still on when he got home from work and we liked John Larkin who played Mike Karr then.

A true legend. Such a fine actress and a classy presence. She was remarkable in the Beau Richardson storyline in the mid-1970s and so many others. Her turn as Ella Hobbs on Search for Tomorrow really showed her range as an actress. And she had great chemistry with both Laurence Hugo and Forrest Compton (as Mike Karr).

Amy Robach and T.J. Holmes OUT at ABC and ‘GMA3’

It’s not ending well for Amy Robach and T.J. Holmes. The former GMA3 co-hosts, who had their affair come to light publicly, have been let go by ABC after a lengthy mediation session on Thursday.

Now, the network has severed all ties with Robach and Holmes and they will receive payouts of their contracts.

According to TMZ: the long mediation session was “extremely contentious,” with ABC reps accusing both Amy and T.J. of various forms of misconduct, which one source characterized as “a witch hunt.”

They go on detail that Amy and T.J were told that they did not handle their romance appropriately by waiting too long to disclose it to ABC executives.

ABC expressed that their “behavior on set” was “uncomfortable” for some ABC staff.

Page Six is also reporting that their source shared from the talks, that unless ABC reaches a satisfactory departure agreement with both Amy and T.J., they would both be looking at filing lawsuits against the network.

In additional accusations, ABC said alcohol had been found in Robach’s dressing room.  However, that was disputed as ABC executives had gifted liquor bottles to Robach and other on-air ABC talent. Robach was also accused of showing up “drunk” to work after attending the College Football National Championship last year.  Amy claims she was just tired.

So, what do you think of Robach and Holmes being given the hook by ABC and being show the front door? Comment below.

Alec Baldwin to Face Involuntary Manslaughter Charges in ‘Rust’ Shooting of Halyna Hutchins

Charges were announced today by Santa Fe District Attorney, Mary Carmack-Altwies in the shooting on the set of the film, Rust fatally killing director Halyna Hutchins.

Alec Baldwin (ex-The Doctor and Knots Landing) has been charged with involuntary manslaughter along with the film’s armorer,  Hannah Gutierrez Reed.

The D.A. outlined why the deadly on-set shooting could result in criminal charges regardless of whether it was an accident.  In a statement, she shared: “After a thorough review of the evidence and the laws of the state of New Mexico, I have determined that there is sufficient evidence to file criminal charges against Alec Baldwin and other members of the Rust film crew. On my watch, no one is above the law, and everyone deserves justice.

In charges set to be filed by the end of January, Baldwin and Gutierrez-Reed will each be charged with two counts of involuntary manslaughter in Hutchins’ death.

Baldwin’s attorney, Luke Nikas, said this about the charges: “This decision distorts Halyna Hutchins’ tragic death and represents a terrible miscarriage of justice. Mr. Baldwin had no reason to believe there was a live bullet in the gun – or anywhere on the movie set. He relied on the professionals with whom he worked, who assured him the gun did not have live rounds. We will fight these charges, and we will win.”

Andrea Reeb, the special prosecutor for the case said: “If any one of these three people: Alec Baldwin, Hannah Gutierrez Reed, or David Halls (assistant director, Rust) had done their job, Halyna Hutchins would be alive today. It’s that simple.  The evidence clearly shows a pattern of criminal disregard for safety on the ‘Rust’ film set. In New Mexico, there is no room for film sets that don’t take our state’s commitment to gun safety and public safety seriously.”

What do you think about the charges levied on Alec Baldwin? Comment below.
