Yes – it’s ALWAYS a joy to have Brooklyn on.
Please don’t ever age her character – let her grow up on the show like Kimberly did.

She’s so cute, his kid. You’re right, Lisa….I love kids and seeing them grow on soaps warms the heart.
Kristen Alderson was one such child. We sort of ‘grew up’ together…..

Hiya, Fanny,
I love Brooklyn….such a good, sweet little actress.would’t it be great if Emma stayed in PC for its longevity? We don’t see kids that age any more on GH….same goes for Spencer. Miss him, as well.

very happy Brooklyn is coming for a visit, wish she was coming back full time, in fact now that ABC got the rights of OLTL and AMC back, and they can mention characters from those shows, Anna can mention her twin Alex and maybe her twin has a “daughter”? or granddaughter? that looks just like little emma. Then she could be back full time, we can’t kill off Robin or Patrick thats just to unnecessary, but ok, i’m stretching it here, lol, i just wish she could stay longer…

Great to fill up Anna’s house with Emma and Griffin. I keep expecting a Duke return but Jelly are taking their sweet time with it.

Always happy to see her on the show! She interacts so well with all the other actors twice her age. And it’s always nice to see a child-actor who can act grow up on a show. it’s like watching a niece or nephew grow up.

I really look forward to seeing Brooklyn also. She’s one of the few young actors I truly like. She acts WITH the others, not just hamming it up to draw attention to herself. And she can handle heavy material with grace and professionalism. She’s a keeper.

Excuse me, as in huh?
My dear child, I remember watching the first episode of General Hospital as a kid with my mother. I have also been on this site for years. I have possibly posted a handful of times. I read every single post.

I could not resist. Your milieu is pomposity. You lord it over everyone. Your word is law, come hail or high water. You pick on people, demean them and step on them, if your word is not followed. No one is allowed to disagree with you. The ones who seem to gravitate toward you are those who are like you, or are intimidated by you. Most avoid you.

I can sit back, read and watch it all unfold. It is quite humorous, you know.

My name is Francesca, not Celia. I am not in the habit of being devious. That is my name. It has been since birth. A place called Toronto. Have you heard of it? I am a naturalized American.

Try to be a little more charitable where others are concerned , and not so forceful and assuming. My brain does not work like yours. Surprisingly, Michael Fairman allows your blather to go through. How foes that work, exactly?

I am a happy-go-lucky person due to the fact that my heart is light, free of nasty thoughts. It feels wonderful.

Please keep in mind that I did not ask to be excused. I merely asked, what.

Just saw Brooklyn, Sunday on a Christmas Hallmark movie. She was outstanding, as usual.

Ya. Okay…you sound a tad unhinged and ummmm, Victorian. Step out of the timewarp speak you seem to be possessed by and get a grip. Amusing as it is. Now, bugger off…

Francesca

Typically predictable. This is a democracy. The one who is unhinged is yourself. When someone is criticized for choosing to vote for a certain candidate speaks volumes.

I chose not to vote for either, but wrote in Pence. Neither candidate appealed to me. Iffy, both of them.

Having said that, what gives you the right to mete out insolence and insults? You sound like you voted for Mrs. Clinton. What does that say about you. Did anyone blast you for that, as you have so many on here. No one tried to take your civil rights from you.

No one, except for a few, stands up to your bullying. You do not scare me, child. You do not even make a dent. I am almost 60, and very proud to have gone through life without malice or impeding my fellow-human beings their freedoms, as you have. I have no enemies.

Victorian? Maybe. Nothing wrong with that. Actually, my grand babies tell me I am the coolest grandma.

Your mouth is foul with no manners of which to speak. Take a chill pill, ‘modern muse’. Good manners never go out of style, as Victorian as they are.

Happy Holidays!!

Dear ” Francesca” aka Celia, aka CeeCee. You’re way too transparent. And you STILL don’t get sarcasm! I was playing on words, LOL. I knew what you meant when u said “excuse me. And even your complaints are old.. You criticize and lash out when you think someone has “shamed” you.. then u bring up the fact you’re younger and people try to correct you, in your mind, because of that. Then you bring in your family “honor” and end up with you don’t know how Michael Fairman could let comments you don’t like get through. Thennnn…u start comolsining that your comnents aren’t being posted. It’s rather frightening actually how deeply you get into this that you have to devise other personas to attack. Get a new speech writer, change your identity to a guy, and then attack again. Ya never know…ya might get over on me next try. Wait a while though, otherwise it’ll be too obvious…again

Soaps Lift Boycott Threat Of Daytime Emmys

In a key move to allow those performers in front of the camera and behind the scenes crew and creatives to be acknowledged for their accomplishments this calendar year, the four daytime dramas collectively have decided to lift their threatened boycott and participate in the upcoming 46th annual Daytime Emmy competition.

This comes after the four network soaps (Days of our Lives, General Hospital, The Bold and the Beautiful, and The Young and the Restless) banded together after being unsatisfied with snafu’s coming out of the 45th annual Daytime Emmy Awards earlier this year in April, and a list of grievances and concerns they asked to be addressed by the organization that administers the Emmy contest.

Then, following an internal investigation by NATAS by the law firm of Fletcher, Heald & Hildreth of Washington, DC, the results which were released on November 8th, and being in receipt of their findings, the soaps decided to move forward while still having concerns they want addressed.

In a statement from the group, a spokesperson related to Deadline, who broke the story late Friday: “As a group, we are not in agreement with all of the conclusions that NATAS reached.  However, in the spirit of working with NATAS and the TV Academy on improving the integrity of the Daytime Emmys, we have lifted our boycott. We look forward to meeting with NATAS to discuss their findings and our concerns in greater detail.”

On Saturday, someone close to the situation said to Michael Fairman TV: “Our participation doesn’t mean we accept their proposal moving forward, we still have major issues that we will be discussing with the Chair and President (of NATAS), but as a collective whole, we don’t want to penalize our actors for NATAS’ mis-management.”

The 46th Annual Daytime Emmy submissions began earlier this week on November 12th, with the Daytime Emmys slated to be handed out in early May of 2019.

So, are you glad that the network soaps have lifted their threatened boycott so that your favorite performers, whose performances you have loved over the last 11 months can be acknowledged for their talents and hard work? Share your thoughts via the comment section below.
