Today, Crystal Chappell posted her latest entry on her V-Blog on the Venice the Series website to relate her thoughts on the hilarious and creative funeral episode that was posted today as episode nine of the hit web soap made its debut.  The actress/writer/producer also shared her sentiments on last Friday’s ending of One Life to Live, a show in which she appeared at Maggie Carpenter.   Here are a few excerpts!

Chappell on the Venice funeral:“Who doesn’t love a good funeral? Well, really it was a memorial but whatever! Hope you enjoyed episode 9 of Venice. It’s one of my favorites. I know that some of the folks I work with told me I’m insane when I suggested this episode. They’re not wrong…but, if I’m going to be crazy, I might as well enjoy myself! LOL. Thanks to Desiree and all the other wonderful funeral guests! You were amazing! Mr. Harrison White for his beautiful self and vocals. Maria Webster for her wonderful guitar and backup. Kelly Moneymaker’s touching music. The cast. I’m blown away every week. So proud of all of you! And I mean all of you…every episode has been a revelation. I continue to learn every week. Mr. Sabatino…. I didn’t know when I went off to work that I’d come home to such fun lyrics…xoxo. You made all the professional whores out there feel special…even if for just a few minutes. ; )”

Chappell on the end of OLTL:  “It wasn’t a good end for me on Friday. I sat in my living room…and I’ll admit, it’s the first time in a long time I’ve sat and watched a soap in real time. The days seem full of that work stuff. One Life should be very proud. They exited with integrity. What a great show! Congrats to Frank and Ron and the whole cast. I cried. I remembered. I wished it wouldn’t end. I still hold out hope that these shows are not lost to us. We just need to restructure a bit and I think that’s doable. I, for one, will do all that I can to support. I hope you do too.”

Nathalie Kelley Says She Is Not Returning To DYNASTY For Season 2

In a surprise admission during an interview with E Online, one of the core members of CW’s Dynasty reboot, Nathalie Kelley revealed she is not filming season 2 of the primetime sudser when it resumes filming next month.

Kelley plays Blake’s (Grant Show) wife, Cristal, who ended the season one cliffhanger in a precarious predicament after being shot by Claudia Blaisdel (Brianna Brown), while the Carrington mansion went up in flames, as well.

Kelley tells E! “I won’t be returning for Season 2.”  She went on to say as of the fate of Cristal:  ” Is it a coma? Is it death? … I actually don’t know. But I know that I’m not going to Atlanta in July, that I’m staying (in Los Angeles) … I’ve got my life back.”

Dynasty returns for its all-new season beginning on Friday, October 12th.

So, disappointed to hear there will be no Nathalie on season 2 of Dynasty?  How do you think they will write Cristal out of the story:  Coma … her body found will not be found … or is she truly dead?  Share your theories in the comment section below.

ABC Officially Picks Up ‘Roseanne’ Spinoff, ‘The Conners’ With No Roseanne Barr Participation

Word on late Thursday afternoon is that ABC has now officially moved forward and gave a pick-up to the Roseanne spinoff series, The Conners.   

As viewers know, there had been speculation that the series would revolve around Sara Gilbert’s character of Darlene, but now the other concept with the entire family in the title is the direction the new series will go (although it is said to be the “working title” of the series.)

The Conners received a ten episode order and will make the fall TV schedule, and will reside on Tuesday night’s on ABC at 8PM.

Roseanne Barr’s controversial tweets led to the network’s swift decision to cancel her series.

In the new deal, Barr will have no financial or creative involvement in The Conners after reaching a settlement with series producer, Tom Werner.

The Conners will feature the rest of the Roseanne core cast including: John Goodman, Laurie Metcalf, Sara Gilbert, Lecy Goranson, and Michael Fishman.

According to Deadline:  It is unclear how exactly Barr’s character will be written off but ABC describes it as “a sudden turn of events.”  On the new show, after a sudden turn of events, the Conners are forced to face the daily struggles of life in Lanford in a way they never have before. This iconic family – Dan, Jackie, Darlene, Becky and D.J. – grapples with parenthood, dating, an unexpected pregnancy, financial pressures, aging and in-laws in working-class America. Through it all, the fights, the coupon cutting, the hand-me-downs, the breakdowns – with love, humor and perseverance, the family prevails.

In a statement ABC commented: “The Conners’ stories demonstrate that families can always find common ground through conversation, laughter and love. The spinoff will continue to portray contemporary issues that are as relevant today as they were 30 years ago.”

A major turning point to greenlight the series came when the fact that the new series does not feature Barr’s character Roseanne Conner, which rights to which she is said to maintain, paved the way for an agreement with no Barr.

So, glad to hear The Conners will continue sans Roseanne? Comment below.
