She is in my top 3! Kathryn Hays and Robin Strasser are also in my top 3 of all time! I really hope Maura wins her 4th Emmy on the 26th! (:

I absolutely loved Maura West and Arianne Zucker and will be ecstatic if either of them win! They were on FIRE! (: Finola Hughes is fine but underwhelming, and I really didn’t like either of the B&B women’s scenes. I will be really disappointed if the winner isn’t Maura or Ari – I am hoping for a tie! I truly do not understand why so many are rooting for Katherine Kelly Lang. What bothers me about her is that her scenes are always endless repeats – deja vu – I have seen her fights with Ridge, Taylor and Katie a… Read more »

Who should win? Stacy Haiduk. How the eff is she not nominated?
Who will win? Arianne Zucker, who did a fantastic job playing Nicole and Kristen as Nicole. I could say the breathtaking Maura West every year, but that hardly seems fair!

it’d be great to see Arianne Zucker and/or Katherine Kelly Lang take home, because they are over due… no question this is a lack luster list. so it’s by process of elimination… my own Heather Tom is unmentionable’ WHY ? that 1/2 hour show… and/or all 19 minutes of it… can KEEP her. too much air time and we’d be all over her Maura West… you are on a lackluster … dullard focus…no writing… they can’t even drum up any focus eps like Y&R to emmy shoot. Finola Hughes : You are so boring…. !!!! w/Finn AND Peter… PERIOD no… Read more »

It’s a no-brainer–Maura West—a trillion times over!! This superlative thespian is a chameleon. Her rendition of any character is perfected from A to Z. No diamond in the rough, she!!

I would have to say Maura West, although I am not an Ava fan. I think Finola was cheated through no fault of her own, by getting her so involved with Peter, Finn and Robert with nothing ever really coming of their relationships, but boredom.

I am not an Ava fan–certainly am not! And I am not a fan of West’s acting–I find it overblown and histrionic, Violet. I AM a fan of Finola–always, but, unfortunately, I am not a fan of her storyline with Peter; it renders her weak and gullible. She is much better with Tristan Rogers (Robert); their quips and improvisations are always funny and exciting. They, like Genie, can do a lot by raising one eyebrow! 🙂

According to Variety, “Underwood will emcee the show from Los Angeles, where a stage has been set up for the show, but the pre-taped broadcast will also include presenters and honorees from their own show studios and homes to accept their awards. Although many of the key daytime drama, game and talk show awards will be presented on the telecast, additional winners will be announced simultaneously on Twitter, via the @DaytimeEmmys handle.”

The Daytime Emmys are presented to programs broadcast between 2 a.m. and 6 p.m.  The show includes content that originally premiered in calendar-year 2020, and is judged by a pool of peer professionals from across the television industry.

Chris Harrison Exits ‘The Bachelor’ Permanently With Reported Eight-Figure Payout & Promise to Keep His Mouth Shut

After his 17-year-run as longtime host, and one of the executive producers of the ‘Bachelor’ franchise, Chris Harrison, is exiting the ABC reality-dating competition scene, after a legal settlement was finalized in the last 24 hours.

Harrison, who is not hosting this season’s The Bachelorette (which debuted last night), or the upcoming Bachelor in Paradise late summer season, reportedly will receive a reported, mid-range eight-figure payoff with a promise to keep his mouth shut on all the behind-the-scenes secrets.

Deadline broke the news Tuesday morning with an official public announcement on the parting of the ways slated for later today.

Apparently, a confidential settlement with franchise producers and the show’s distributor, Warner Horizon was finally reached on Monday night, and Harrison’s team pledged to expose The Bachelor’s ‘dirty laundry” unless Harrison’s financial settlement went his way.

Chris’ problems began earlier this year when photos surfaced on social media of ‘Bachelor’ contestant, Rachael Kirkconnell’s participation in an Old South slave plantation-themed party during Matt James’ season of the series, where he was the first Black male lead of the show.

Harrison was then interviewed by former ‘Bachelorette’ Rachel Lindsay on Extra where he seemed to offer ‘compassion” to Kirkconnell for her previous mistakes in this time of “cancel culture”.  His remarks were met with sharp criticism, and so in mid-February Chris announced he would be “stepping aside” from what was to be the finish of the landmark season of  The Bachelor.  Making matter worse was that Kirkconnell received the final rose from James, and then in the aftermath for the After the Final Rose season finale, Harrison was replaced by Emmanuel Acho, who learned that the two broke-up following the taping of the season.

Stay tuned for more on this developing story.

So, glad Chris Harrison is OUT on all ‘Bachelor’ series hosting gigs?  Who do you think should replace him? Should the franchise pack-it-up? Comment below.

GH’s Kirsten Storms Reveals She Is Recovering From Brain Surgery

On Friday afternoon, General Hospital’s Kirsten Storms (Maxie Jones) took to her Instagram Story accompanied in the car by her best friend, Emme Rylan (Ex-Lulu, GH) that she just underwent brain surgery.  In the video, Storms was in a neck brace.

In her message to her fans and friends, Kirsten shared: “I’ve not really spoken about this much, or at all, actually.  But, less than 48 hours ago, I had brain surgery, hence the neck brace.  It was on the lower portion of my brain. Emme is taking care of me until I get to my at-home nurse. It has been an interesting last couple of days.”

Kirsten went to clarify what kind of surgery it was, revealing: “What they had to drain and remove was not cancer. I want to clarify that right now before the Internet, goes crazy wild with rumors about this. I had a very large cyst that had split into two and the doctor said it was so full, the pressure was very noticeable when they opened up my skull.”

Now that the pressure is relieved from her brain, Storms will be healing and taking time off from work at GH, expressing: “I will be on the mend for the next several weeks. I will be back at work when this is over with.”

Share your well-wishes for a safe and speedy recovery to Kirsten via the comment section below.
