Over at Let’s Make A Deal, the festivities kick into high gear beginning on December 22nd with traders taking a ride on the ‘Christmas Cash Train,’ opening the countdown calendar, and revealing gifts with prizes inside. The celebration continues on December 23, with host Wayne Brady writing a letter to Santa and a wise man playing Car Pong. With a Christmas cruise, seven round trips, four cars, and five golden rings wrapped for the winning, it is sure to be two very merry episodes.

Now on to the soaps …. on The Bold and the Beautiful, the Forrester, Logan, and Spencer families and friends gather at the Forrester estate on Friday, December 23 to celebrate Christmas. Liam (Scott Clifton) gives a touching speech about holiday traditions, and Katie (Heather Tom) and Carter (Lawrence Saint-Victor) share a poignant moment under the mistletoe. With hearts full of love, laughter, and gratitude, each person expresses their blessings to one another, emphasizing the power of joy, hope, love, and, most importantly, family. Everyone gathers around the piano as Eric (John McCook) leads them in singing traditional Christmas carols, and a beloved family member receives a Christmas miracle.

B&B holiday shows can be disappointing. The characters are so mean and unhappy, any demonstration of Christmas cheer seems fake. Why would these people want to gather together? It’s difficult to enjoy. ATWT did the best holiday hours. I have a DVD of some and those episodes are worth rewatching each year.

Can’t beat the around the Christmas tree words of wisdom from HB, Henry, Ross, Ed, and Bert on GL. Also the Santa stories in New York with Philip and Beth. Looking forward to anything that takes us back to the 70s and 80s.

cib,
Oh yeah. I listened to GL on the radio in the late ’30s and then on TV. I miss all those characters you mentioned and more. I can still hear the original music and see the ” Guiding Light” Such wonderful memories, huh?

clb: thanks for reminding us of the greatest earth mother in soaps.. dear Bert Bauer. I loved how she greeted everyone with a sincere “Hi, dear”. Remember when she took in that young woman Pam, played by Maureen Silliman? Perfect Bert love. Let’s face it, Traci Abbott is the only loving person on Y&R, and she’s relegated to cameo appearances. GH? Can’t think of anyone like Bert or Nancy Hughes from ATWT. I like Nikki and Ava and Olivia, and I know Y&R’s Sharon tries, but that warm feeling, I fear, won’t be seen again. Happy Holidays.

Notice that Ridge is not at any of the Forrester festivities they are describing.
I hope it’s Katie that gets the Christmas Miracle they mention. Can’t stand Paris’s mother, did not know she was Katy’s Dr.

Marcus Coloma On His GH Exit: “I Don’t Know Why That Decision Was Made, But I Don’t Feel Any ill Will and I Didn’t Feel I Got Fired”

This week, GH fans saw Adam Huss returning to the ABC soap opera as Nikolas Cassadine to finish out the rest of the scenes originally intended to be played by Marcus Coloma who ended his three-year run on the show a tad early.

As has been previously reported, Coloma came down with Covid-19 as his final tape days neared, and a decision was made for him to not return to finish off his last run of episodes.

With all the rumors and stances taken by everyone involved, Coloma was the special guest on this week’s episode of the That’s Awesome Podcast hosted by Steve Burton and Bradford Anderson and discussed his departure from the long-running daytime drama series.

Marcus expressed that when he took the role on GH, he was excited to be in that kind of environment (working on a soap opera), and only signed on for three years.  However, as time went by it became more difficult to reconcile leaving when his contract was up, sharing: “You fall in love with the crew and everybody along with it. So, two and a half years in, this decision that was so clear in the beginning is getting complicated.”

The actor added that while, “I knew the end was coming, it wasn’t like GH was saying, ‘Hey, Marcus, we want you to stay.’  There was no negotiation … and all I can say to that is I don’t know why that decision was made, but I don’t feel any ill will and I didn’t feel like I got fired. It just felt like … there was maybe an understanding that I was going to be there for three years. The big surprise is how much it hurt. Even though I knew I was going to leave.”

In the end, Coloma reflected that this may have concluded as it should, adding, “I really do have some big goals and those goals would have never been realized if I would have stayed. That’s not to take anything away from GH because I admire everything about it.”

Watch the episode of That’s Awesome featuring Coloma below.

Then weigh-in, what do you think of Marcus’ thoughts on his exit as GH’s Nikolas Cassadine? Share your thoughts in the comment section.

According to Deadline, Ripa will host Let’s Talk Off Camera with Kelly Ripa, where she will have in-depth conversations with celebrity guests. Depending on the subject matter, a specialist or expert could also join the episode to provide insight.

I have dreamed of a platform where I can have these honest talks without all the fuss and filter of a camera. Now SiriusXM has made my dream a reality with a podcast featuring friends, both old and new, discussing a variety of topics we all face in life, while getting deep with some experts’ views and advice along the way. Not another podcast, this is off camera!”

New episodes of Let’s Talk Off Camera with Kelly Ripa will be available every week on Stitcher, the SXM App, and all major podcast listening platforms beginning in March.

Kelly will be quite busy co-hosting the syndicated talk show Live with Kelly and Ryan, in addition to Let’s Talk Off Camera with Kelly Ripa.
