Why isn’t Chandler Massey going to be on??? I only watch Days of Our Lives, so will not be tuning in for this. Unless Chandler turned it down, he should be on with the rest of the winners.

I watched and I thought I was going to cry. A show dedicating an entire hour to the Daytime Emmys (when they didn’t even win!), honouring the winners and gossiping about the ceremony’s happenings was so appreciated! Moreover, they didn’t spend the hour talking about GMA VS Today, the Judge shows or other talk shows, they mostly stayed on the topic of soaps and actors and I for one loved it! While it was too bad for any DAYS representation, maybe their strict schedules just couldn’t be adjusted to spend some time away to film on the show (though Deidre… Read more »

Sorry , but no show that has taken over the spot where a soap was will never be watched in my home, no matter who is on, all the networks killed the soaps so we should kill there afternoon ratings whether we watched or not. Daytime is for soaps not trashy, Talk, food, news, or that self help crap.

I’ve never watched The Talk and don’t plan to in the future. That said, I feel they need to be commended for having soap actors on as guests, especially the ones from ABC. At least they were willing to honor the Emmy winners and celebrate the soap genre. That’s a hell of a lot more than ABC has done!

I have to respectfully disagree with you Mary fergan, abc has had soap stars on there dumb shows, Laura wright showed up on the chew and we were not to happy about her little visit to a show that replaced a soap opera like the talk did, the talk replaced as the world turns, so no one should have showed up emmy win or not. However I do agree with you that abc has shunned the soaps and they are paying for it in the rating games.

I apologise, I did not watch As the World Turns, so I wasn’t thinking of that aspect of it. I was just making a point about how pathetic ABC is when it comes to promoting and congratulating GH, the only soap left to us on that network.

I never watched as the world turns either but I know a few people that did and they are crushed like we are, Until the soaps were canceled at abc I didn’t care one way or the other but now I feel different and feel any soap that was let go and replaced by a dumb talk, food, or news show I won’t watch no matter what network they were on. And I really wish the soaps stars would do the same, when they show up on those shows I could just scream at them nooooooooooooooooooo don’t do it, but… Read more »

All I know is hes tears seemed genuine in that one scene with Geary brought me to feel Lucks intervention if I’m not mistaken for his dad.
Jackson drew you in and you felt that heart wrenching reaching out, you really did.

Christel Khalil (Lily)…please! She couldn’t act her way out of a paper bag!

Really enjoyed seeing Christel, one of the Best Actors on that horrid Dead Show Walking Y&R, along with Jonathan and Heather Tom on TheTalk! Smart move by the show to also have GH cast on, since neither of their Shows were Emmy worthy in the Writing/Production Department, but I would have loved to have seen Chandler as well.

GH’s Rebecca Herbst Thanks Fans for the Birthday Love

She is not often on social media, but when she does show up, it delights so many of her enduring fans. General Hospital’s Rebecca Herbst (Elizabeth), who yesterday celebrated her birthday on May 12th, took to Twitter to share warm ‘thank you’s’ to a few fan factions who sent her some lovely gifts in honor and support of their favorite soap star.

Herbst expressed: “Yesterday was such a beautiful day! THANK YOU for all your sweet Birthday messages! #Friz & #Liason showered me with the most gorgeous flowers, cakes & goodies. And #Friz donated $2500 to #SmileTrain.  I felt very loved. I’m so grateful for each & every one of you. …XO”

Of course, the Friz fans loved Liz with Franco (Roger Howarth) and the Liason fans are those who love Liz with Jason (Steve Burton).

Now with Roger Howarth returning to the show – in what is at this juncture still a mystery as who he will play – will Rebecca be paired with Roger in story again, or not this time?  Do you think Liz might end up romantically with Finn (Michael Easton), or is there still a chance that down the line Liz and Jason could get back together, or could Liz meet someone new? Only time will tell!

For now, Herbst was thankful for the money donated to the Smile Train charity and all the wonderful gifts and messages that came her way.

So, what did you think of Becky’s thank you message?  Who are you hoping Liz winds up with romantically in the future?  Share your thoughts in the comment section.

GENERAL HOSPITAL Touches on Racial Profiling, Social Injustice and Bias In Key Scenes with Portia and Jordan

This week ABC’s General Hospital took the opportunity to write in to their scripts and story, the issue that has been so prevalent in our country now and for decades that of racial profiling, injustice, bias, gender equality and more rolled into scenes featuring: Brook Kerr (Portia), Briana Nicole Henry (Jordan), Sydney Mikala (Trina) and William Lipton (Cameron).

When Portia comes to the boxing gym for a workout and comes upon Jordan hitting the boxing bag hard over the the incident with Cameron in the hospital garage, it spurs a greater conversation.

Jordan tells Portia about the situation that arose with Cameron and a gun, and Portia says she heard about it.  Jordan knows if Cameron’s skin was a different color, she may not have been able to de-escalate the situation and talk her officers down, if she had not arrived on the scene in the nick of time.

This launches the two women into an important conversation on racial profiling, social injustice, white privilege and gender bias that they have found themselves dealing with in their professions (Portia is a doctor and Jordan the police commissioner) and their children’s lives.

Later in another scene, Trina reminds Cameron how they, along with Joss (Eden McCoy) were pulled over by a cop last summer when they were driving around the backroads.  She goes on to say when Cameron questioned why they were being stopped, it scared her.  She feels if Joss and Cam were not there, she would have likely been pulled out of the car and pinned to the ground by the cop.  Trina notes she put aside her fear and never said anything to them, because they would never understand.  Trina tells Cam he needs to realize how lucky he was the other night when nothing happened to him after his run in with police.

You can watch the conversation below in scenes with Briana Nicole Henry and Brooke Kerr.

Then let us know, did you like how GH wove this social message into the story?  Share your thoughts in the comment section.

GH’s James Patrick Stuart in the Cast of Disney Channel’s Super-Villains Pilot ‘Amy From Amarillo’

Casting news was recently announced for the Disney Channel’s upcoming half-hour live-action comedy pilot with a working title of Amy From Amarillo.

According to Deadline, while the series has named actress Isabella Pappas in the title role of Amy, none other than General Hospital star James Patrick Stuart (Valentin Cassadine) is also noted to be a part of the cast.

In story, the project follows a family of super-villains who must go on into hiding in Amarillo, Texas when they fall afoul of the League of Villains and are about to be liquidated.  Production on the pilot is set to begin this month.

Those joining Stuart and Pappas in the cast include: Hilda Spellman, Patricia Belcher, Kayden Muller-Janssen, Malachi Barton, Reed Horstmann and Lucy Davis will plays Amy’s mom, Eva aka Spark, a feisty supervillain who shoots electrical current out of her hands.

Production on the pilot is set to begin this month.  Stuart will be continuing his role on GH as per usual.

Furthermore, James took to Twitter this morning to clarify for inquiry GH fans who were concerned about the status the project might cause for his role on the ABC daytime drama series: “I am currently working on a Disney Channel comedy pilot. We film 15 minutes from the GH stage so, should the show get picked up for series, and while it would create scheduling headaches for some very cool people, I have no plans to hang up Valentin’s dancing shoes any time soon.”

So, intrigued by this pilot and what role James will have within it? Share your thoughts via the comment section below.
