General Hospital wasn’t the only soap to bring the idea of a menage a trois to its characters!  TNT’s Dallas ended the first half of its third season with Pamela (Julie Gonzalo) joining her husband John Ross (John Henderson) and his mistress Emma (Emma Bell) for a three-way only to have to dial 911 in the middle of it!

Dallas star Josh Henderson was the special guest today on Access Hollywood Live where he previewed what’s in store for the second half of the season of the series, and when the story picks up this coming Monday night, August 18th at 9pMET!

Henderson revealed: “When we left off with the midseason cliffhanger, all hell broke loose! You had John Ross with his wife and mistress at the same time, and then his wife overdoses and is on the floor which is completely John Ross’ fault, and yeah it got a little awkward in that hotel, and there were a lot of awkward moments in that scene!  And of course, Southfork is burning to the ground and my on-screen mother Sue Ellen (Linda Gray) is passed out drunk in the house and so is someone else.   So, we don’t know who’s going to make it.  So it’s a little scary!”

During the segment, Josh also discussed his musical and athletic talents and how an original song he wrote about John Ross and JR’s (the late Larry Hagman) relationship will be woven into the score of an upcoming episode of the series.

Watch Josh after the jump on Access Hollywood Live! Then let us know. what you think will happen when the story picks-up in the aftermath of the overdose and the menage a trois on Dallas ?

First, a shout out to Josh Henderson. What a fantastic actor. He is absolutely worthy of the Great Larry Hagman’s legacy. How this actor is not even nominated for an Emmy is mindboggling. The “three-way” on Dallas wasn’t the story, it was a scene, it was not discussed or planned by all three characters. It was Pamela’s way to get revenge on Jon Ross and Emma. First by screwing with their minds, and them literally as well I guess, and then turning the tables by having taken the drugs and overdosing during. That was drama and a complete surprise to… Read more »

LOL ..
It is all in humor, have fun with it..
It will never happen<– and the 3 have no idea how to even go about doing a threesome and that is funny in itself !
Just the looks on their faces was good for a laugh..
soaps can be fun if one is not overly serious over the makebelieve bs .. 🙂

su0000 you constantly miss the point of posters who talk about the quality or lack of quality on GH. You reduce the argument to things just being fun and you reduce those who see its flaws to people who take make believe seriously. First, it’s fine to have fun, the problem is with how poorly GH does it, with atrocious, low brow amateur dialogue and storytelling. Comedy is fun when it is executed properly, it is painful and embarrassing in the hands of no talents. Recognizing that is not a sign of taking something too seriously. The show exists, people… Read more »

I respectfully disagree about the 3way talk on GH. What you saw as crass & ridiculous, GH50, I saw as mature discussions by responsible adults. Talking about participating in such an act beforehand IS the responsible thing to do, isn’t it? I sense a real generational discomfort from some viewers about *discussing* sex. It’s kind of backwards. They, like you, say the dialogue was stupid & unrealistic. Really? The 3 participants all talked about their reactions & feelings to other parties beforehand, not in a frat boy sniggering kind of way (well, barring Franco’s high-5). But, in a rational, adult… Read more »

GH50, you claim to be “used to more skilled writing and storytelling, drama or comedy”, and yet you are “mindboggled” as to why Josh Henderson hasn’t been nominated for an Emmy! Talk about a contradiction…

I love Josh and Julie! They have such incredible chemistry and the producers are foolish for not taking advantage of it. They are a treat to watch and need more scenes together! I haven’t felt this way about an acting pair since Trevor and Florencia. I also want to give a shout out to Judith Light. What a talent! I can’t wait for Monday.

Mama Rylan is a hoot! And I’m there with you on Monday. DALLAS 2.0 takes no prisoners & pushes buttons by making the Ewings the most normal of all the families on the show. Certainly compared to the twisted Rylans, Elena’s extended drug-running family, and whatever hired help is currently sleeping w/Christopher, they are normal. One thing is for sure – you would never see Helena Cassadine or Dr. O snorting cocaine & declaring, “Mama like!”

ABC and PEOPLE’s ‘The Story of Soaps’: What Was Your Review Of It?

Tuesday’s night airing of ABC and PEOPLE’s two-hour special The Story of Soaps featured many notable daytime and primetime soap stars, past and present, clips from backstage to classic memorable moments, and some participants who were providing commentary on the erosion of the daytime soaps in our culture.  Still others, maintained and realized that everything today is serialized from the news we watch, to some of Netflix’s most binge-watchable series, and of course, the birth of reality-programming.

Throughout the airing of the special, The Story of Soaps was trending on Twitter and social media either at the #2, #3 or #4 spots for the entire duration of the broadcast presentation, and the cancelled and beloved All My Children was also at one point trending.

However, known soap writers, journalists, ardent fans, and actors of the genre, were all on Twitter last night live-tweeting their thoughts as the special went down, and there was definitely mixed reactions and reviews, when all was said and done.

What the special did not shy away from, but tackled, was Luke’s rape of Laura at the campus disco on General Hospital. and how that moment now, as Genie Francis (Laura), so eloquently put, would be considered as ‘date rape’ in our culture.  The series even included a pivotal moment where Laura addresses Luke (Tony Geary) about the rape years later, after helping Elizabeth (Rebecca Herbst) through her rape ordeal.

John Stamos (Ex-Blackie Parrish, GH) got a bevy of “Right On’s!” for his comment that the soaps do not get the credit that they deserve and clearly came through as one of the soaps greatest supporters, as did former The Doctors and Knots Landing star, Alec Baldwin.

However, throughout the two-hours, Andy Cohen’s commentary was thread throughout; mostly citing soap’s demise and the creation of reality-programming and his “Real Housewives” franchise, that the special touted as the new soap operas.  It continued on the narrative that people preferred to see real-life drama then made-up drama on a fictional soap.  And while, that has been a trend in American culture for decades, the commentary came off as often out of place in a celebration of the soaps; and bringing in a lot of negativity to the special that soap fans were tired of hearing.

In a lighting rod moment, Cohen stated: “I know Susan Lucci doesn’t agree with me, but I think that the Housewives have replaced soap operas because truth is stranger than fiction. Soaps became kind of unnecessary because you could do it with real people, and they’re writing the drama themselves.”

The special did also address the cancellations of All My Children and One Life to Live, (which many were not sure they were going to do – given this special was airing on ABC), where One Life’s leading lady and six-time Daytime Emmy winner, Erika Slezak (Ex-Viki) said what we all wanted to sa ywhen the ax fell on the towns of Llanview and Pine Valley, “People were horrified”.

Clearly, OJ Simpson and his murder trial and reality-programming were also given a chunk of time to show where the once mighty landscape of daytime soaps which once had 13 shows on the air, dwindled town to 4.  But, it would have been nice to see more time spent on how in this day and age, the people in this current landscape of the genre work so hard to get episodes done at an unbelievable pace, and how in that climate the performers still deliver gut-wrenching performances.

Former Loving, OLTL and Breaking Bad star, Bryan Cranston, did point out how the once powerful soaps, just don’t have the dollars they used to, and need to, to help with production costs and their taping schedule.

Viewers were reminded of soaps’ socially relevant storylines including hankie-inducing moments from: Robin (Kimberly McCullough) and Stone’s (Michael Sutton) HIV/AIDS storyline on General Hospital, to Billy Douglas being a gay teen coming out on One Life to Live, played by a young Ryan Phillippe.

There also did not seem time spent on the contributions of William J. Bell; one of the most prominent writers of the soap genre of all-time.

For many commenting on social media last night, there seemed to be a feeling of some glaring omissions of participants who could speak on this genre, who have been in the trenches as soap producers, soap writers, pundits, actors, and more, who were not included in the special.

So, what was your review of The Story of Soaps? How would you grade it? Do you feel it accurately reflected the history of the genre?  Were you happily surprised,  or when it came to the end where you over it, or somewhere in between? Sound off in the comment section below.  Below are some tweets from notables who have worked as an actor, a writer, and a journalist in the soaps.

‘Dallas’ star Ken Kercheval Dead At Age 83

Sad news to report for fans of the iconic primetime soap, Dallas.  Ken Kercheval, who played the thorn in J.R. Ewing’s (Larry Hagman) side, Cliff Barnes, has passed away.   The actor was 83 and died at his home in Indiana on Sunday.   The cause of death is under wraps.  He had been previously open about being a lung cancer survivor after years of smoking.

Kercheval was on Dallas for its entire run on CBS from 1978 to 1991, and returned to the TNT reboot from 2012 to 2014 to reprise his signature role.

On Dallas, Cliff Barnes was always the perennial loser when he went toe to toe with ruthless J.R, but in the final season, Cliff beats J.R at his own game and takes over Ewing Oil.  Cliff was also hopelessly in love with Sue Ellen Ewing (Linda Gray) and was the brother to Pam Barnes, played by Victoria Principal.

As for Ken’s first big acting breaks, that came on daytime soap operas when early in his career he appeared on Search for Tomorrow and How to Survive a Marriage.

Later, he appeared on episodic dramas such as Starsky & Hutch, and Crossing Jordan.  His final role was in a movie, 2019’s Surviving in L.A. said to be a comedy/drama in which he plays the business manager of a former teen sitcom star who trashed her life through drug abuse and is fresh out of rehab.

Share your thoughts on the passing of Ken Kercheval in the comment section below.   But first, watch him as Cliff Barnes in this scene from TNT’s Dallas when he sees J.R. for the first time in years!
