The writers of Days of our Lives got a lotta nerve submitting themselves.

Nope… wasn’t me! I think my assessment of ReRon’s writing has been on record here since his time at GH.

And while I might be the current star of the show in Salem… it doesn’t mean I’m going to make excuses for the writing.

Like Kate covering up major felonies committed by two of her sons, for example. Roman might have her back for what Phillip did, but I doubt he’s going to feel the same way about Lucas kidnapping his daughter, for Hell’s sake!

Glad for our four legacy soaps but not sure any is telling most compelling stories. Even so, my money is on General Hospital.

Of the two I watch, I’d say GH is a bit better only because Y&R is so repetitive — Billy and/or Victoria maniacally gunning for Adam over and over again. Abby and Devon EVERY DAY. Nothing ever happens.

I’ll be good with #YR or #GH.
#Days DOES NOT DESERVE THE AWARD. They are awful. #RonCarlivati should be fired. Sick of him writing horrible trashy stories and destroying every character possible. I’ve had enough of him.

OMG me too.Every word you say is true. Why has he spoiled every SL by having this devil crap mixed in. Also, I can’t stand the devilboy of being given all the camera time. I don’t feel this young man has enough talent to be given the time and credit for all the scenarios.

Well, it’s not because of the young man. He’s the “vessel”. It’s ME who is getting all the camera time!

Amen to that. They should be ashamed for their writing, not seeking kudos!

I totally agree with you on Ron Cavlivati’ a writing they should change the writer to someone who has better writing skills. DIOL isn’t gonna get the ratings if he keeps writing in bad stuff.

These awards lose credibility when they allow shows with ridiculous camp plots & connect dot dialogue to be submitted & possibly win.

There is no competition when GH is on the list. Great writing by that team.

Amy Robach and T.J. Holmes OUT at ABC and ‘GMA3’

It’s not ending well for Amy Robach and T.J. Holmes. The former GMA3 co-hosts, who had their affair come to light publicly, have been let go by ABC after a lengthy mediation session on Thursday.

Now, the network has severed all ties with Robach and Holmes and they will receive payouts of their contracts.

According to TMZ: the long mediation session was “extremely contentious,” with ABC reps accusing both Amy and T.J. of various forms of misconduct, which one source characterized as “a witch hunt.”

They go on detail that Amy and T.J were told that they did not handle their romance appropriately by waiting too long to disclose it to ABC executives.

ABC expressed that their “behavior on set” was “uncomfortable” for some ABC staff.

Page Six is also reporting that their source shared from the talks, that unless ABC reaches a satisfactory departure agreement with both Amy and T.J., they would both be looking at filing lawsuits against the network.

In additional accusations, ABC said alcohol had been found in Robach’s dressing room.  However, that was disputed as ABC executives had gifted liquor bottles to Robach and other on-air ABC talent. Robach was also accused of showing up “drunk” to work after attending the College Football National Championship last year.  Amy claims she was just tired.

So, what do you think of Robach and Holmes being given the hook by ABC and being show the front door? Comment below.

Alec Baldwin to Face Involuntary Manslaughter Charges in ‘Rust’ Shooting of Halyna Hutchins

Charges were announced today by Santa Fe District Attorney, Mary Carmack-Altwies in the shooting on the set of the film, Rust fatally killing director Halyna Hutchins.

Alec Baldwin (ex-The Doctor and Knots Landing) has been charged with involuntary manslaughter along with the film’s armorer,  Hannah Gutierrez Reed.

The D.A. outlined why the deadly on-set shooting could result in criminal charges regardless of whether it was an accident.  In a statement, she shared: “After a thorough review of the evidence and the laws of the state of New Mexico, I have determined that there is sufficient evidence to file criminal charges against Alec Baldwin and other members of the Rust film crew. On my watch, no one is above the law, and everyone deserves justice.

In charges set to be filed by the end of January, Baldwin and Gutierrez-Reed will each be charged with two counts of involuntary manslaughter in Hutchins’ death.

Baldwin’s attorney, Luke Nikas, said this about the charges: “This decision distorts Halyna Hutchins’ tragic death and represents a terrible miscarriage of justice. Mr. Baldwin had no reason to believe there was a live bullet in the gun – or anywhere on the movie set. He relied on the professionals with whom he worked, who assured him the gun did not have live rounds. We will fight these charges, and we will win.”

Andrea Reeb, the special prosecutor for the case said: “If any one of these three people: Alec Baldwin, Hannah Gutierrez Reed, or David Halls (assistant director, Rust) had done their job, Halyna Hutchins would be alive today. It’s that simple.  The evidence clearly shows a pattern of criminal disregard for safety on the ‘Rust’ film set. In New Mexico, there is no room for film sets that don’t take our state’s commitment to gun safety and public safety seriously.”

What do you think about the charges levied on Alec Baldwin? Comment below.
