I love Sheryl Underwood, she is a very funny lady. She is loud, but the woman has a good heart. Sheryl loves her soaps, and I love her for that.

Yes, ironic that she’s on a show that replaced a soap, but I don’t hold that against her.

Sheryl is always ridiculously loud. It’s just not even funny, and I think that’s what she thinks she is — she thinks she’s being funny. Unfortunately, she just sounds very stereotypical. She can’t even hold a conversation without screaming, and “shucking and jiving” about something. She should be tossed out. Holly Robinson Peete was SOOOOOOOOOO much better. I guess they got rid of Holly of because she REFUSED to “shuck and jive” for the camera.

You sound jealous of Sheryl, time to grow up Trophy lady. Sheryl is a terrific lady and funny comedian. Take a nap darling.

Jack, darling — you definitely made me laugh! Thank you, sweetie, but I can assure you with 100% certainty that I am in no way jealous of Sheryl Underwood. I think it’s cute that you’re defending her though.

Sheryl is a beautiful soul who doesn’t have a hateful bone in her body always something nice to say about everyone. She is a funny lady and a great asset to the show. She is loved by all her fans but unfortunately is and always will be hateful people like (Trophy Lady) who love to spread hate.

Nikki, my dear, what are you talking about? What “hateful” thing did I say about Sheryl? I said she wasn’t funny. Since when does that translate into “hateful?” I think you need to relax, Nikki. Though Sheryl may be your BFF in your head, I can assure you that she’s probably heard many people say that she’s not funny. It’s not just me, sweetie.

Personally, I’m not a fan of this corporate synergy; ‘plausible cross-overs’ between BOLD and RESTLESS are one thing, but I don’t need to see “Abby” hawking a showcase on PRICE or see Sheryl Underwood losing-her-religion on any CBS Daytime star in pants on THE TALK! :/ It reeks of desperation (“look-at-us, look-at-us”) for the #1 Network in Daytime (for close to 30 yrs); they don’t need to try so hard to be relevant!

I think the “secret project” is that Christian LeBlanc and Sheryl Underwood will be hosting this year’s Daytime Emmy Awards!

That would mean they were back on a network, CBS, and I don’t see that happening considering there are only 4 soaps left.

””a “secret project” which loops in the CBS Daytime line-up of shows which includes: The Young and the Restless, The Bold and the Beautiful, The Talk, The Price is Right and Let’s Make A Deal!””’

That ^^^ says ”crossovers”

Angelica [Love that name!] it is nice that you loop one of your soaps into ANY other daytime shows. Even though Y&R is #1, you can never get enough press, especially with only four soaps left! BUT, yes there is a BUT, PLEASE NO SHERYL UNDERWOOD! She may be a sweet person but she is so loud, obnoxious and dry humps every male soap actor. She may be a fan BUT she is a journalist! Act professional! Have Ian Ward show her her path!

Best secret would be… development of a new daytime drama! That would be awesome. I would even go as far as to hope for an original production, not a spinoff of the existing Bell-borne serials.

A man can dream… :- )

CBS Daytime is becoming what ABC used to be for me. A strong lineup with all the shows tied together. For years I watched only ABC and had no reason to turn the channel. But then they cancelled AMC and OLTL, and everything changed. CBS seems to be making all the smart moves, while ABC just keeps getting worse.

Get over it, LOL. Guiding Light was a good soap, at one point. But ratings fell and they cancelled it. I got over it. As The World Turns really sucked the last 2 years, before it got canned. Y&R is not going anywhere. Ratings are always good. The number 1 soap in Daytime.

GL’s ratings fell because of the ridiculous decisions by the network to revamp the production module. Nobody liked it. Fans complained. The network’s response? We don’t know why no one is watching. They wouldn’t listen. It was deliberate sabotage and then they turned around and did the same thing to ATWT. Ignominious endings for two great programs.

If only the secret project was an As The World Turns and Guiding Light spin off with characters from both shows or that CBS had purchased OLTL and AMC from Prospect Park; hey I can dream!

I wish I were good at making GIFs. I really need a GIF of a scene from “The Lion King” in which Little Simba entices Little Nala to go to “the watering hole” with him, and Little Nala agrees, but cautions; “It better not be something dumb!!”

This is how I feel about so many promises from Daytime these days. A new soap would be exciting. Something that would truly impact the genre and its legacy would be exciting. But at this point, I just don’t want to get my hopes up.

Speaking of Christian, missed Michael Baldwin being front and center in GC—- such a shame to have such a great actor sidelined. As for the topic at hand, perhaps it will be some common PSA that all the shows at CBS will promote on a specific day– or maybe a contest where in order to be eligible you have to watch each show to get a clue— it could be crossovers or a combo of all the above–

Guiding light and as the world turns and all my children were three of my favorite soaps all time. Yes gl and atwt werent good the last several years but still great shows that will always be missed. Wish they would either create a new soap or have a soap show that showed old clips of atwt and gl or possibly showed reruns. I miss soapnet. We will see what they are goin to do but im hopin its domething like this.

Unless it is another soap opera in the lineup I dont care . Does it really excite anyone if soap stars go to their boring talk show ?

Days Of Our Lives

Jensen Ackles Shares Heartfelt Message on Death of ‘Rust’ DP Halyna Hutchins: “This Has Been a Tragedy of Epic Proportions”

Former Days of our Lives and Supernatural star, Jensen Ackles (Ex-Eric and Ex-Dean)  took to his Instagram over the weekend to pay tribute to cinematographer, Halyna Hutchins who was tragically killed in New Mexico, on the set of the film Rust in which Ackles co-starred with Alec Baldwin and Frances Fisher. Baldwin is also one of the producers of the film.

Last Thursday, in the initial investigation reports surfaced that Baldwin discharged a “prop gun” leading to the death of Hutchins and injuring director, Joel Souza.  Since that time it has been reported that Baldwin was told by the assistant director, David Halls, that the weapon was a “cold gun” meaning not loaded with live rounds following its preparation by the film set’s armorer, Hannah Gutierrez.  But in his affidavit statement, Halls says he was unaware that the prop gun contained live rounds when it was given to Baldwin for his scene.

The scene Baldwin was rehearsing was inside a church building at the Bonanza Creek Ranch. In new affidavit’s, it was noted that Baldwin was ‘cross drawing’ the weapon and pointing the gun towards the camera lens.

A grief-stricken Ackles shared:  “I’m not even sure where to start.  This has been a tragedy of epic proportions that we are all still processing. Earlier last week I felt compelled to tell Halyna just how awesome I thought she was. I told her how incredible I thought her camera shots were and just how exciting it was to watch her and her team work. Truly. She laughed and said thank you and gave me a hug. I’ll forever be thankful we had that moment.  She had a spunk and passion that infected the entire crew from the top down. She was an inspiration. My heart and prayers go out to Halyna’s husband, son and the rest of her family. There just aren’t enough words to express what an immense loss this is. She will be incredibly missed by all of us who knew and admired her.”

Since Hutchins’ death, a video also surfaced of Ackles discussing his concerns for gun safety on the set of Rust at a Supernatural convention in Colorado prior to the tragedy.

Jensen told the crowd: “I’ve got a 6 a.m. call tomorrow to have a big shoot-out. They had me pick my gun. They were like, ‘Alright, what gun would you like?’ and I was like, ‘I don’t know?’ and the armorer was like, ‘Do you have gun experience?’ I was like, ‘A little.’ And she’s like, ‘OK, well, this is how you load it, this is how we check it and make sure it’s safe. “So she’s like, ‘OK, I’m gonna put some blanks in there and I want you to just go and fire off a couple rounds towards the hill.’ And I was like, ‘OK.’ So I put the belt on, I put the gun there, and I walked out and she’s like, ‘Just make sure that you know, you pull the hammer all the way back and you aim at your target.’ And I was like, ‘OK, I got it.’  The footage was originally on You Tube, but now has been taken down.

The investigation remains and open and active on what occurred on the set of Rust, according to the Santa Fe New Mexico Sheriff’s office.

So, what do you think about Jensen’s tribute in the wake of the Rust tragedy? Comment below.
