What’s going on in soap land? First Courtney’s out; now she’s back. Kin Shriner announces he out, now I hear he’s not!

Is Courtney back/back? Or a short arc back? Sooooo, she and Thomas decided they’re NOT in love and don’t want to be together? Are they recasting Thomas? Sigh…so much to keep track of! LOL! Well, if she’s back to stay, sounds good. Would have liked Thomas (Pierson Fode) to accompany her.

And Michael Fairman, I don’t believe you’ve mentioned Kin Shriner and all the news that was circulating about him being cut from GH. Was he? Has that decision been reversed? Is there a gag order? You’ve been radio silent…

I would love for Thomas (Pierson Fode) to return with Sally, I love them as a couple…

I replied to your replies but they did not make it. And now I can’t remember what I was talking about-and am getting confused and a little frustrated trying to communicate with people. Hope for a brighter day.

I hope she is not going to be passed around the triangle rodeo. I forgot she fell for Liam. No to rekindling that. Love Pierson, great if he returns.

I need to be hired as a Forrester intern. But I am going to need executive privilege. Sally is welcome to join Forrester-focusing on off-the-rack fashions for women of all sizes and at a reasonable price. I would prefer that Bill leave Spencer and buy a ranch-planty of ranches in California, Love Harris Ranch in Coalinga. Huge cattle ranch with a lovely hotel and restaurants. In that case, he and Sally fall in love and ride horses.
Quinn is out as jewelery designer-tired of her weird sticks and stones and amulets. She is immediately transferred to the new Foundations Division-think Spanx, sister-and she can fit my largesse first and foremost and make me pretty-then several other plus size women.
Eric could do Bold’s version of an Alzheimer’s story-but I want long-term-years- of his gradual decline and Quinn’s love and care and frustration and possible affair.
More plus-size models on the runway-and I am happy to fill in as needed-as long as it is not during my lunch hour and if Sheila does her disappearance stuff while I am waiting to be fed-she is out out out.
Steffy needs to kill again and how about Pam after Steff-poo chips her tooth on a bad lemonbar. Liam is lost at sea. Hope is lost on a rowboat searching for him.
Jax goes back to GH and sleeps with Carly again cause she is mad mad mad and sad sad sad.

Watching The Resident again and really enjoying it.

Hey Phyllis!

I think it’s time we get you started on writing your own soap; there are characters, places and things screaming to be heard! 😉

Haven’t tuned back in to The Resident. Watching too many shows as it is. I need an intervention!

I need an intervention as well-and looks like I will have to do it myself. How I wish I had “alters” to carry me through difficult times. Nikki Smith used to take over now and then-only she left everything in shambles and me to clean up the huge mess. She hasn’t visited in a few years and for that I am grateful. I need to step away from here and the tv-and keep saying that and not doing it.

Great news! Love Sally.

Miss chatting with everyone- hard to get through and have a convo. Anyone else on twitter? Say hi if so.

This never made sense to me. Sally had potential for alot of story and Courtney plays her so well that Sally is very much a likable character. Glad to hear she’s still with us!!!

This is awesome news! Courtney Hope is a great actress and there is so much story to tell for the Spectra clan! I wonder if this means the rest of the crew will be back too?

HELL TO THE Y-E-A-H Sally should seek revenge on Bill!!!!! Bill…dude…be afraid…be very, very afraid…lol.


Yes! Sally is back. Now I can watch the Bold and Beautiful again.

Great News!

Glad Brad realized he made a mistake in letting Sally go.

Well I guess Thomas skyscraper couldn’t keep Sally satisfied!

Oh my gosh Brad Bell should be ashamed he is working over time to prove he is not even close to the writer his Dad was! The Liam show just so sad well it went back off DVR today he really have to do that to Taylor???

Yes, I am so glad to have Courtney back, she’s a wonderful actress, so natural and refreshing…I hope Brad writes a good story line for her…

What story would that be after Liam show god please cancel this show with all that is holy show Brad the door

I hope they don’t waste her by starting a triangle with Liam, Hope, and Sally. Her and Thomas werd so good togther. If I hear Hope tell Liam one more time that he is not a killer, I will scream. They keep rehashing everything over and over. They need to come up with fresh stories and new faces. Why they fazed out the Avants is beyond me. They should retitle the show The Forrester and Spencer show

B/B came to their senses! Yes they needed her back, we tired of the Steffy/Hope/Liam storyline!!! My goodness we went like two years with that and it seems they want throw it at us again, REALLY? Can the writers not come with something new, please!!!

Telling the same story lines with same actors is boring even DAYS has B/B beat right now. Come on B/B wake up!

Wonder if Patrika (can’t remember her character’s name), Saul, and Darlita will also return.

This is great news. Love her as Sally. Bill was smart fans over at Y & R we’re hoping for her to take the roll of Summer Newman.


Yay! Now maybe they will send Hope back to Europe???

Hopefully! The character is so annoying!

thank god she is amazing now hope can go

Where is Courtney Hope Sally we need some good new story this round and round with Liam and Hope Ridge and Brooke has become soooo boring spice this up or I’m done for sure come on Sally and company!!!!


Y&R’s Colleen Zenk on the Flipside of Aunt Jordan Tormenting Nikki: “My Relationship with Melody Thomas Scott Has Just been Incredible Since I Got Here”

Viewers of The Young and the Restless were left in disbelief with the arrival of Aunt Jordan, who schemed to have recovering alcoholic, Nikki Newman (Melody Thomas Scott) kidnapped with an IV drip of booze flowing through her veins (and that’s just for starters).

When As the World Turns favorite Colleen Zenk was cast on Y&R, to portray the revenge-filled Aunt Jordan, the top-rated soap got a bit of a spring back into its step.  Zenk spoke this week with CBS San Francisco affiliate KPIX on her return to daytime and how she is getting along with the cast and crew at the CBS daytime drama.

In speaking with KPIX anchor, Gianna Franco, Colleen expressed: “Tthe fact that they welcomed me with such open arms and love, it really freed me up, because of how they received me and made me feel incredibly welcome, and not just the cast. I mean, the entire production, the crew, the staff, the directors, the writers … everybody from the top down.”

Hard to believe, but as Colleen shared, throughout her years in daytime she had never spoken with Y&R’s iconic star, Melody Thomas Scott, who she now has a budding on-screen rivalry with. Things have certainly changed.

Colleen added, “My relationship with Melody Thomas Scott has just been incredible since I got here.  She and I had never had a conversation before until the day I walked on the set. It’s just been fabulous. I can’t tell you how much I’m enjoying that.”

And walk in she did! Zenk shared that her casting had been kept top-secret at the show. No one really knew she was on the call sheet or the cast list at the time. To keep it mum, Colleen revealed, “My name was not anywhere. They did not have “Colleen Zenk” in print. So, when I finally did show up on November 17th (on-air) it was shock.”

Check out the segment where Colleen speaks on her Y&R adventure thus far below.

Are you looking forward to seeing … Nikki get her revenge on Aunt Jordan for all she put her through? More scenes between Colleen and Melody?  Share your thoughts in the comment section.

Matt Bomer Reveals More On Why He Turned Down ‘Barbie’ Role as a Ken

Guiding Light alum Matt Bomer (ex-Ben Reade) is currently receiving rave reviews for his performance in Showtime’s Fellow Travelers and the motion picture Maestro.

However, on the December 6th episode of The Tonight Show, Bomer revealed more intel on why he decided to pass on an opportunity to appear in the summer blockbuster Barbie. Matt was in heavy consideration to play a Ken in Greta Gerwig’s smash hit starring Ryan Gosling and Margot Robbie.

The in-demand star told Jimmy Fallon,”I had some projects in development, and I wasn’t sure if they were gonna happen or when they were gonna happen. So, I auditioned. I mean, I dressed up like Malibu Ken. I dressed up like Business Suit Ken. I had like four different looks going on. I have pictures of this.” Bomer shared that, “he really got into it.”

In the end, the timing just wasn’t right for Bomer who shares three sons with his husband, Simon Halls.  Matt expressed, “I was talking with Greta, I was looking forward to doing it and then the things in development came to fruition, and I would have been away from my family for a year, which was just too much time away.”

As for how the cast shook out for Barbie, Bomer gave a thumbs up, “I think they made a perfect movie, and it was cast perfectly.”

Bomer does not regret his decision because in the end he “got to do Fellow Travelers and Maestro and spend time with my family.” In Fellow Travelers, Matt stars in what he deemed on The Tonight Show as ‘the gay The Way We Were.”  Bomer plays opposite Jonathan Bailey in the series.  In Maestro, Bomer plays clarinettist David Oppenheim, who was one of Leonard Bernstein’s lovers.

On Guiding Light, daytime soap fans remember that Bomer played Ben Reade for two years from 2001-2003. The character was revealed to be a male prostitute and a serial killer before his death. Matt had told the producers before he exited, “Just throw the kitchen sink at me, and they did.”

Watch Matt’s segment on the Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon below.  Now let us know, do you wish he would have played a Ken in the Barbie movie? Have you caught his performances in ‘Fellow Travelers’ and soon Maestro?  What do you recall about his work as GL’s troubled Ben Reade? Share your thoughts in the comment section.

Ellen Holly, Groundbreaking Actress of ‘One Life to Live’, Passes Away at 92

Ellen Holly, who portrayed Carla Gray on ABC’s One Life to Live, had died at the age of 92.  Her death was confirmed by her cousin Grant Shipp via his Facebook page. The groundbreaking actress passed away on December 5th.

Holly appeared on One Life from October 1968 through December 1980, and from May 1983 through December 1985.  In his post, Shipp related of Holly, “She was a pioneer in daytime television. Starring on One Life to live for 20 years. Playing Lawrence Fishburns mother on the show. She appeared in several movies, and performed on stage with the greatest black actors of her generation. Sidney Poitier, Harry Beafonte, Cicely Tyson, Robert Hooks, James Earl Jones to name a few. You had One Life to Live and it was amazing Life. You were simply one of the best. Now you know the secret. God rest your soul.”

Following several theatre roles, Holly came to One Life to Live and took on the role of Carla Benari. Secretly, she was born Clara Gray, and eventually went by the name of Carla Gray. Agnes Nixon, iconic creator of the soap opera, wanted to tell an important social issue of the times, when in story, Carla was passing herself as white, in order to get a job. This was also an issue Holly faced in real-life and shared publicly in an essay she wrote for the New York Times, “How Black Do You Have To Be?”

In story for the first five months, the audience thought Carla was white. However, in a landmark moment, Carla came face-to-face with her mother, Sadie (Lillian Hayman) who was a housekeeper. Her mother felt she betrayed her race. Carla was embroiled in an interracial relationship with a white doctor, Jim Craig (Nat Polen), who was her boss at the hospital. Caral also was involved with another resident Prince who was Black. After breaking it off with Jim, Carla came clean about her race.

Eventually, Holly would star opposite Daytime Emmy-winner, Al Freeman Jr., and the love story of Carla and Ed Hall, became a fan favorite in the soaps earlier years.  The couple adopted a teenaged son, Joshua played by now motion picture star, Laurence Fishburne. When Ed and Carla’s relationship fell apart, she eventually remarried Dr. Jack Scott played by Arthur Burghardt.

Holly said in a 1979 interview with Ebony magazine, “There are enormous stretches in this country where they don’t know anything about Black people…Our viewers tend to regard us as neighbors. People at the supermarket, total strangers, will throw their arms around you and treat you as a neighbor…My mother on the show has been a domestic and is now head of the housekeeping staff at the hospital; my ex-husband on the show is a policeman, and Arthur [Burghardt] plays a brilliant heart surgeon…I think we’ve opened up our viewers’ heads a little bit more to the variety that exists in the Black race. And the more that happens, the slower somebody will be — when they’re confronted with any given Black person — to jump to conclusions about who and what that person is.”

After Holly departed the show in 1980, she later returned to Llanview in 1983, at that time, Carla was now an assistant district attorney. She also was reunited with Ed Hall. Ellen last played the role in 1985.
