Another Legal Issue Involving the Sabatoging of Movie Deal For Ex-B&B's Hunter Tylo Surfaces!

Two women familiar to soap audiences are at the epicenter of this lawsuit first reported by The Wrap! It involves former One Life to Live and Days of our Lives star, Holly Gagnier and former The Bold and the Beautiful star Hunter Tylo (who has seen her share of legal woes in the past).

According to The Wrap, “Gagnier has been slapped with a lawsuit by 80-year-old Patricia McCoy, who claims to have been the actress’ ballet teacher for 15 years, from the time Gagnier was six years old.  In her complaint, filed in Los Angeles Superior Court last week, McCoy claims that Gagnier tried to sabotage a potential movie deal between McCoy and Hunter Tylo, based on McCoy’s 1999 book “The American Dream Has Put Our Souls to Sleep.”   The book, according to the complaint, chronicles McCoy’s professional relationship with Lorene Yarnell of Shields and Yarnell, who McCoy claims to have helped make the transition from mime to a ballerina.

McCoy claims that she struck up a deal with Tylo for a script based on the book, with Tylo starring in the potential movie. However, according to the suit, in September Gagner called Tylo’s manager and trash-talked McCoy in an effort to spoil the agreement.

According to the suit, also “Gagnier told Tylo’s manager that McCoy has a history of  ‘luring celebrities into contracts and setting them up with the intention of suing them for breach of contract,” and that McCoy was mentally and verbally abusive to Gagnier.   Gagnier also allegedly told Tylo’s manager that McCoy’s training creates a “cult” atmosphere that’s damaged many of her students.  And that McCoy “is promiscuous with men as well as a lesbian.”

So what do you think of this legal battle? Comment below!

Don’t know about the legal drama, but I remember Holly Gagnier’s Cassie. I prefer her to the Laura Bonarrigo-played Cassie, who’s remembered by most. She was a smokin’ firecracker, kind of a Blair precursor. Those Cramer women, lol.

Drama seems to follow Hunter Tylo. A lawsuit isn’t the solution to every problem!

I thought Holly Gagnier fell off the face of the earth. I remember her on DOOL as Ivy.

Some old lady trying to sell a script and a washed up fired actress trying to get publicity for a movie project …Tylo and Macoy might have some luck with their script at the Comedy Store, but the court house, I don’t think so.

Who cares. And, besides, Hunter Tylo has ALWAYS BEEN BAT-S@@T CRAZY…LOL!!!!! Just ask her ex-husband Michael Tylo. Furthermore, HT is currently married to some black dude who has very serious anger issues (aka just as C-R-A-Z-Y as her!!!!!). Yep.

Christopher Sean’s Final DAYS Episode Airs Today, As He Shares Parting Thoughts: “I Was So Honored To Bring Paul Narita To Life”

Do not miss Tuesday’s November 20th episode of Days of our Lives, as it marks the final appearance of Christopher Sean in the role of Paul Narita.  How does Paul leave the canvas, exactly? Grab your hankies for an emotional goodbye.

When Sean was brought on to DAYS, not only did he get involved in what would end up being a love triangle with several iterations. but so much more than that, especially since DAYS tackled a pro athlete coming out, and a Japanese American at that, who feared he would not be accepted by his family if they knew the truth about him.  Christopher won the hearts of so many viewers and cast members at DAYS including: his longtime scene partners: Chandler Massey (Will), Freddie Smith (Sonny), and Paul’s on-screen father, Drake Hogestyn (John Black).

Christopher took to Instagram to share his parting thoughts as he exits the show on today’s episode of DAYS: “It’s been an amazing 4 years with @nbcdays 🙂 I am so honored to have the opportunity to bring Paul Narita to life, a Japanese American Gay Professional Baseball Player. An ally to LGBTQ and Just as important an ambassador for Diversity. Representation is so important because we all have an equal place and we all are an important resource to America’s history, not one more important than the other. Change comes when we understand that. Thank you @nbc for taking a chance with me. Thank you Bruce Evans and Ken Corday and Marnie Saitta, Albert Alarr and Janet Rider, Jennifer Sinclair… the list goes on and on. To all the cast and crew on Days, my extended family, thank you! I’ve grown so much with you and created such wonderful memories. To the fans, none of this would be possible without you. All my love and thanks.  My final farewell on Days… whoa. I will miss you all, my home, my beginning. Until Next Time.‬”
