You know what is really a shame is that Christian le Blanc has been wasted for three years on Y&R. Watching this is a hoot and he has been a good sport just like Jess Walton. I wonder what he did to MAB to make her not write for him all he does is carry a briefcase and be Victors errand boy. I am afraid the wedding is Victor & Sharon.

I have never watched one minute of the loud, silly Talk. Even the promos for it are irritating. Who cares? My tv goes immediately to ABC right after B&B, then I have to mute it while they finish up with the equally irritating, loud Chew. But come January 16 my tv will be switched off after B&B.

LeBlanc is a class guy, I think. Again, ATWT and GL were not good enough to save and to nurture, but the webs will use the genre to bring attention to the replacement, the vapid THE TALK! Oh dear.

seriously, a ‘surprise” lol, okayyy, this is just simple cross promotion, the talk,& the young and the restless, are both cbs shows, the wife of the guy who runs the network is one of the host. both show are just using one another and as for sheryl being surprise, well if you bought her overacting then your the only one surprise. this is just another stunt casting , and nothing more, nothing less.

I don’t watch the talk, so I really don’t know Sheryl. But, I will have to watch her because I’m a big Y&R fan. The guess of whose wedding is a different story. It will probably be Victor and Sharon. That’s bad enough! Hate that story line…….

I love Michael in any capacity. Now… can we get done with the who dun it, the ridiculous ganster and daughter show, lets get to real meaty stories that are real to us, not this foolish, never in a lifetime gonna happen situations. Chloe acts like a dingbat and she used to be city suave, Victoria shows no education or backbone anymore and she should be working and doing something besides crying and peleeeeeze, someone do something with her hair, its the worst on tv. She is gorgeous, bring back the classy smart business woman. What the heck with cat woman, get rid of her, its just a ruse to get the other who dun it story out of the way without harming the main players, but one of them should be the killer and no one will know but us. Give nick a job and a reason to be around instead of just jumping any gal in town, he has no smarts. I hate to say it but Adam shines, he is smart and realistic. Daniel, a waste and Kevin needs to grow a couple. No more Daisy, preggies, babies, lets get some reality into this before this show hits the skids too.

All I can say is that you are sooooo right. I love Vicky and Billy together, I know TPTB think it will be boring if they are together, but what about giving them a great story together, maybe searching for something, doing PI work together, something fun and romantic. I agree Vicky should work too, I’m sick of all the babyline stories. I’m just sick of what has become of Daniel, another wasted character. I still watch it, but I’m really getting bored with it. They need a giant change like Days of Our Lives has done.

Here we go again with CBS trying to cross promote another soap opera replacement. Not going to get me to watch the Talk, ever.

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.
