Hope the networks take notice in the US and revive old soap favourites : Guiding light , Santa Barbara , Another World and sell these soaps to international markets as well as domestic ones to maximise profit . The 4 remaining soaps need to be sold more aggressively in international markets . The bold shouldn’t be the only one visible but damn good on them for clever marketing and business . Spread the soaps internationally !

grew up on bnb and just rediscovered after a long absense after abandoning dismal days of our lives, love nicole/ zende/sasha plot
no surprise bnb is tops… half hour quick show, top production values, sets are prime time quality, recognizable characters and actors for years now. even the opening shots of l.a before scenes looks straight from prime time. bnb is really popular in canada and especially italy my homecountry. wish ynr my fave soap would takes cues from its lil sis soap bnb. not sure why william bell cant consult on ynr and lend dads bill wisdom. ynr is unrecognizable from the legacy bell days.

OLTL Alum Brandon Routh Revisits Playing Superman This Time On TV

Big news out of San Diego Comic-Con over the weekend involving former One Life to Live star and the former motion picture Superman, Brandon Routh (Ex-Seth Anderson, One Life). The actor will be making a comeback in the superhero role, but this time on television.  Brandon played the man of steel in the motion picture Superman Returns over 13 years ago.

Routh who presently stars on Legends of Tomorrow as Ray Palmer AKA The Atom will be donning the Superman cape along with Tyler Hoechlin in an Arroverse crossover Crisis on Infinite Earths. Both Routh and Hoechlin will appear as Superman but in “different time frames.  Crisis on Infinite Earths will take place over five episodes, three in December 2019 and two in January 2020.

During Arrow’s San Diego Comic-Con 2019 panel, Brandon Routh revealed that he was wearing a shirt with the Kingdom Come Superman emblem, which means he will be playing the Superman from another universe.   As to what the story will be, it is reportedly based on Kingdom Come, a story that landed on the pages of the Justice Society of America, set far in the  future, when Superman has a bit long in the tooth, and is facing competition from a younger, more violent generation of superheroes.

Routh told EW: “It’s an opportunity for me to kind of say hello and goodbye to the character in a way I didn’t get to the first time.  Being a young individual of 24, 25, I thought, ‘Oh, I’m going to do this for years and make multiple movies.’ And that, of course, didn’t happen. I’m just very honored to be able to do this one last time.”

As for Routh’s time on One Life playing opposite Melissa Archer’s Natalie, from 2001-2002, his time in Llanview was cut short via a reported firing and was then replaced.  Guess Brandon has had the last laugh with this one going on to motion picture and primetime TV superhero roles.

Watch below when Routh revealed his upcoming man of steel turn at the Arrow panel at SDCC below.

Then, let us know, will you be checking out Brandon as Superman once again? Do you recall his time on One Life to Live when Seth was scheming with Natalie? Comment below.

Michele Lee, Donna Mills & Joan Van Ark Talk Their ‘Sister’ Act and How They’re ‘Knot’ Done Yet

Who doesn’t love to see a Knots Landing (1979-1993) reunion,  especially when the three major leading ladies from the iconic primetime soap are seen together and step out in public!

Last night, the threesome of Michele Lee (Ex-Karen), Donna Mills (Ex-Abby) and Joan Van Ark (Ex-Valene) appeared in Hollywood at the the Hollywood Bowl The Jose Iturbi Foundation dinner, which promotes classical music to mainstream audiences, and awards grants to musicians, held before its concert.

It was there that these women chatted about their enduring friendship, and of course, missing that infamous cul-de-sac!  In a feature for ABC News via AP, with the fan favorites from ‘Knots’, Van Ark commented: “The truth is that we are, in fact, sisters. And when we’re together, it’s goofy and fun. When we have our three-way conversations, which might be just the three of us, we are truly joined soul-to-soul, heart-to-heart.”   The trio revealed that they always get together for dinner.

Coming up in December is what would be the 40th anniversary of the debut of Knots Landing. When asked if there might be another reunion show, Van Ark remarked that she would hope that Valene, Abby, and Karen would have had some ‘work done’, commenting: “They’ll all have facelifts, I hope.”

And if that wasn’t funny enough, Joan chimed in that there is a back-up plan if there is no reunion: “It’s a show that were going to call  ‘We’re ‘Knot’ Done Yet.’ And we’re not. We’re not.”

With female empowerment being a huge topic of our time, Donna Mills expressed how ‘badass” the ‘Knots’ gals were for their time: “We were so strong, our characters were so strong, that it was like, ‘Don’t mess with them.'”

So, would you like to see a ‘Knots’ 40th reunion special? Comment below.

‘Bachelor’ Creator Mike Fleiss Slapped With Restraining Order After Allegedly Attacking Wife; Demanding She Have An Abortion

In what is now become sadly its own soap opera, the creator of ‘The Bachelor” franchise, Mike Fleiss and his wife, Laura are in the middle of a media frenzy this week after reports surfaced on Wednesday that Laura filed a restraining order against him following an argument and altercation allegedly over Fleiss demanding she have an abortion, as she is presently pregnant with his second child.

As more information came to light Mike had filed for divorce last week earlier after five years of marriage citing irreconcilable differences, according to court documents. It was listed their separation date was on July 7.  In addition, Mike requested joint legal and physical custody of their young son, Benjamin,

Shortly after the divorce filing, Laura who is a former Miss America from Wisconsin (Laura Kaeppeler), winning the crown in 2012, then filed an emergency domestic violence restraining order on Mike. In her claim, she says he physically attacked her and “demanded” she get an abortion. This allegedly went down over the July 4th weekend,  Court documents state that Laura is ten weeks pregnant at this time.

In addition, Laura alleges that Fleiss informed her: ‘If you have an abortion, then we can just go back to the way we were.’”  She went on to say: “Prior to July 4th, Mike threatened me that if I did not have an abortion, he would end the marriage.  This was not the first time he had threatened a divorce during our marriage, but now, he was using this threat as leverage to force me to have an abortion. In addition, on July 4th, Mike made the following statements to me: ‘I am cutting you off financially Monday morning’; ‘You are paying for everything with your money’; ‘Next time I see you, I don’t want to see your stomach’; and ‘You have a choice, you can choose. Have an abortion or go back to Wisconsin, but you are not taking Ben.’”

Fleiss defended himself in the documents obtained by The Blast: “I have not hurt, attacked, or attempted to physically harm Laura or our child, Benjamin Fleiss ‘Ben,’ in any way., Laura was the aggressor during the incident and physically attacked me. I tried to get away from her as she was chasing me and hitting me. I have security footage from our home that shows the incident, which the Court can review.”

He also added that: “After the incident, Laura was initially remorseful. I was leaving Hawaii for work commitments in Los Angeles. I spent time with Ben at the house in Hawaii prior to leaving for Los Angeles. A few days after the incident, Laura stopped all communication with me. “I don’t know where Ben is and I want custody of him because of Laura’s instability.”

On Thursday, Radar Online released text messages provided by Fleiss to the courts from his estranged wife.

Meanwhile, Warner Brothers, the company behind the “Bachelor” franchise said of the incident and the status of Fleiss with this series: We are aware of these serious allegations, and are looking into them.”

So, do you think Fleiss should be, or will be asked to step away from ‘The Bachelor’ franchise in lieu of this domestic dispute and violence issue? Comment below.
