Please not another one, Come On!!!! Vimal wife is so annoying with her silly voice and bad acting now you add a sister. I’m done OLTL, I tried but your story lines are just plain boring.

Agree! Accents sound phony and are just annoying. Rama needs to go! I have watched OLTL for years but can see why they are struggling! They better get a better story line or they are history. Sad!!

I agree with Steve about Vimal’s wife. I don’t even know her name and i’ve been watching daily for months now. But she is a bad actress and her accent gets on my nerves as well. Let’s hope this new girl is not as bad!

yes that accent i hope it’s fake and not real

Having an accent does not make someone’s voice “silly” or “annoying”. It is called being different. Rama is an interesting character, she has just been written terribly. It is not Shenaz’s fault. She is an accomplished actress in her own right. Vimal is also an interesting character. Either way, neither get much story. I am sure that Vimal’s sister will get about 5 minutes a week of airtime. That is why these characters can never be developed. There is a strong possibility that OLTL needs to boost it’s cast up so thtat there are enough players for the switch to The Online Network. It appears that The Patels may be more prominent online than on our tv sets. I for one am happy about that. So much better than yet another bottle blonde that is the norm on certain other soaps. White people are actually only about 50% of the population of the United States, but you would never know it from watching television. I can also guarantee that a Phiadelphia suburb like Llanview is supposed to be, would not look as white as OLTL does. Not only would there be some Indians living there, but there would be more Asians, Hispanics, African Americans, Homosexuals, Atheists, Muslims, Buddhists, etc. The lack of diversity is one of the reasons that soap opera ratings have declined drastically over the years. 50% of population does not see themselves reflected on tv. So I think if you can spare the 5 minutes a week for the actress with the “silly” voice, you may find that she will become an internet phenomena and help OLTL become a success.

Who said anything about her accent, I surely didn’t. Once again, she’s annoying with her silly voice and a very BAD acting.

Hey Todd, I agree with you. OLTL does try to provide diversity, more than B&B, GH and DAYS. B&B takes place in Los Angeles, where there are many Latinos, African Americans and homosexuals, but you wouldn’t know it watching the show. Salem, where DOOL takes place only has one two hispanics and two african americans and the same goes for GH (Epiphany & Shawn). The world is made of many colors and we all want to see ourselves represented on screen. Maybe that is why cable and internet programs are succeeding, while the networks are failing.

I hope when OLTL moves to online, they hire good actors and fire their current director, because the actors tend to over- act at times (the newer actors).

Shenaz Treasurywala’s accent is REAL and I personally find it very very sexy. She’s also the only reason I even bothered to watch this soap opera nonsense.

Llanview has been home to a diverse populace …..
I like the Patel family I hope they stick around for the transition to online.

Soap fans remember them as Adriana Cramer and Cristian Vega on ABC’s One Life to Live, and now real-life duo, Melissa and David Fumero are adding to their family with news this weekend from Melissa that she is pregnant with their second child.

Melissa posted a pic of her with growing baby bump sharing: “Oh yeah, I’m hella pregnant. To be honest, I haven’t felt like posting about it because this pregnancy has been way harder and… I don’t feel that cute? But yesterday I got a really intense massage, an awesome chiropractic adjustment, and my hair feels thicker… so I feel a little bit cute today.”  To which her husband, David commented back to her Instagram post with a humorous: “Wait …. WHAT?!”

The Fumeros are already the proud parents of their 3-year-old son, Enzo who often appears on the couple’s individual Instagram account posts.

Since OLTL, Melissa has gone on to star in the hit comedy series Brooklyn Nine-Nine opposite Andy Samberg, while David also guest-starred on the series.  Meanwhile, David has also been recently seen in the series Power.

News of Melissa’s pregnancy comes shortly after NBC renewed Brooklyn Nine-Nine for its eight season, even before its upcoming seventh season does not even begin to air till February 6th, 2020.

DAYS Brock Kelly and Y&R’s Donny Boaz Make Debuts: What Were Your First Impressions?

This week saw the arrival on the soap scene of two characters who look to figure heavily into story in the towns of Salem and Genoa City.  First, over at Days of our Lives during their first week of episodes with their time-jump, Brock Kelly appeared in his first scenes as Evan, the manny, to little David.

On DAYS, Evan looks to being taking an interest in a grieving and distraught Sonny (Freddie Smith), who is dealing with the anniversary of his mother’s death and that his husband, Will (Chandler Massey) is in prison for the crime that killed her (whatever that is has yet to be revealed).

For Brock Kelly this is not his first time on DAYS, having last been on the show back in 2005 as Abigail’s (then played by Ashley Benson) first boyfriend, Josh.

Over at Y&R, the much talked about Chance Chancellor finally arrived in Genoa City, and already had a confrontation with Cane (Daniel Goddard), helped save the day in a hostage crisis, and more.

Actor Donny Boaz has already mixed things up with many a resident of the town and shared scenes with Michelle Stafford (Phyllis), Mark Grossman (Adam), and more.  This is Boaz’s first daytime soap.  The last time Chance was in Genoa City he was played by John Driscoll.
