I miss Cynthia Watros as Kelly on GH..
Dixie (she always acts Dixie/stereotyped) is not cutting it for me, she just could not replace Cynthia Watros..
I will tune in just see Cynthia Watros, it looks good .. I might even like it!!

You are nuts, Cady is way better in the role of Kelly. Cynthia was miscast, but Cynthia was great on Guiding Light as Nurse Annie.

There’s no way in hell Cynthia was miscast. She was magnificent as Kelly. Tortured, vulnerable, the works. Get a clue.

I’ve always loved Cady, but I think that Cynthia Watros brought a vulnerability to Kelly that just seems to be missing from Cady’s performance here. I blame the wonderful Jon Lindstrom for this – Cady’s just too damn happy to play the tortured Kelly!

I hope this does really well for Cynthia. She’s s tremendous actress and deserves prime time success!

I wish she was still Kelly on Y&R. Cady MacLaine is miscast in the role and isn’t bringing it. They should have created a new character for her instead I think.

Kudos to Cynthia on her new adventure <3

I love Cynthia Watros, best of luck to her on her new show. I loved crazy Annie Dutton on Guiding Light, Cynthia is a wonderful actress. Cady Mcclain what can you say, I love her as Kelly Andrews. Sorry to say this Lainey, but Cynthia was not right, for the role as Kelly. Cady is rocking it, She also is a terrific actress. Actually both of them are wonderful ladies, they sure can act. I prefer Cady, in the role of Kelly.

Maybe different but sounds like a reworking of Switched At Birth where a young girl learns she wasnt raised by her real mother and had to integrate into the family she never knew she had…only difference is that S.A.B. involved two girls and both had to make the adjustment…so, been there, done that…ill pass!!!

I miss her as kelly Cady McClain isn’t cutting it and I love Cady! She was so good as Rosanna on ATWT.

I liked Cynthia as Kelly, too.
Not hating Cady as Kelly, but just
not connecting with her, either.
Since Cynthia left, the character
of Kelly just seems kind of pointless
now.

Cady McClain is attractive, talented, sweet, and so.

In my opinion, she was a better replacement of Cynthia Watros than someone else was.

I like her as the new Kelly on Y&R. Jack Abbott finally has a woman who is hot and wants to be with him.

I still think by all intents & purposes JFP wanted to cast her as the Nu-Phyllis but for whatever reason they thought Stafford was coming back. I did prefer her take on the Kelly character but I blame the writers more then the actress they just did a total 180 on the character. As they are doing with Billy and brother Jack neither has any edge anymore they are just bland.

I liked her as Annie Dutton on GL. I even liked her as Kelly Andrews on Y&R.

But, I think that she fits perfectly well for the role of Elizabeth Stevens on “Finding Carter”.

How Great is Cynthia Watros on her new show. She is amazing. Watching Finding Carter just for her.

Y&R, AMC and GL Alum, Jeff Branson Featured In New AppleTV+ Drama, ‘For All Mankind’

Daytime Emmy winner, Jeff Branson is featured in a new drama coming your way on the new AppleTV+ platform.  Branson takes on the role of famous astronaut Neil Armstrong in For All Mankind.

At the epicenter of the story is NASA and the Soviet space program as they square off in the space race of the 1970s.  But this has a twist, America has lost the race and tensions boil over between the two nations.

The main focus in the series is the lives of the astronauts and the personal and professional relationships they encounter. For All Mankind presents an aspirational world where NASA and the space program remained a priority and a focal point of our hopes and dreams.

Branson is fondly remembered in soapland for his performances as Ronan Malloy on The Young and the Restless, Jonathan Randall on All My Children, and Shayne Lewis on Guiding Light.

For All Mankind is created by Emmy Award winner Ronald D. Moore (Outlander, Star Trek, Battlestar Galactica), Matt Wolpert and Ben Nedivi.

In addition to Branson the cast includes: Joel Kinnaman, Michael Dorman, Wrenn Schmidt, Shantel VanSanten, Sarah Jones and Jodi Balfour. General Hospital’s Jason David (Aiden Spencer) also appears in the series.

Crystal Hunt and Donna Mills Headline New PureFlix Streaming Comedy Series, ‘Mood Swings’

Four generations of women are thrown together by circumstance to live under one roof and survive in Los Angeles in the new comedy series Mood Swings set to kick-off on October 24th on streaming service Pure Flix (www.PureFlix.com). New episodes will be released every Thursday for eight weeks.

Some very notable soap opera faces are featured in the cast.  Chief among them is former OLTL and GL star, Crystal Hunt, who also serves as the creator and executive producer of the comedy.

In addition to Hunt, none other than Knots Landing and General Hospital favorite, Donna Mills is along for the comedy ride as Hunt’s mother.. Hunt and Mills first worked together on the defunct reality series, Queens of Drama.

Joining Hunt and Mills and rounding out the cast are: Robin Riker (Ex-B&B and GH), Sophia Gasca (Ballers), Christina DeRosa (Bad Moms), Scott Bailey (Ex -GL and currently, The Bay,) and Jason Earles (Hannah Montana).  Plus, Dyan Cannon plays Hunt’s aunt in Mood Swings.

According to the loglines for the series: “Newly divorced from her mega-successful, controlling and philandering husband Jonathan (Bailey), Farrah (Hunt) is awarded the couple’s Malibu mansion along with an enormous mortgage and minimal financial support to take care of herself and 8-year-old son Ryder. Recognizing she needs an income, yet having no work experience whatsoever, Farah decides to rent out rooms in her house in order to pay the bills. After placing an ad on Craigslist for female roommates, enter Coco (Riker), a disgruntled working woman; Dani (DeRosa), a fiery Canadian-Italian culinary wizard and hopeful Hollywood actress; and Emilia (Gasca), an enigmatic Dominican entrepreneur trying to get U.S. citizenship.  Farrah’s live-in not-so-handy handyman Angel (Earles) adds even more comedic moments to the show as he both struggles and enjoys being the only adult male in the household. While all the women come from different backgrounds and generations, they are brought together by unforeseen circumstances and what ensues is a wild and hysterical ride full of laughs.”

In a statement on the launch of the streaming series, Hunt expressed: “We felt there was a need for a great female ensemble comedy.  Right now, you can only watch reruns of shows like ‘Golden Girls’ and ‘Designing Women’ to enjoy a female-driven show. Our thinking was to embrace the legacy of these programs while adding a modern twist.”
