Did Brooks Breaking Des’ Heart On The Bachelorette Provide More Drama Than Soap Break-Ups?

On last night’s two hour edition of ABC’s The Bachelorette, the show finally perked up and brought the drama, when Brooks Forester (we love that name too, B&B take note!) broke the heart of this season’s bachelorette, Des Hartstock, setting the stage for an awkward second part season finale next week!

What made this so compelling is that this showed the realistic side, or as realistic as a reality show can get, when the competition is about dating, love, and commitment!  It was apparent that during the moments where Brooke tried to explain himself to Des that this was going to be very sad, especially when Des admitted that Brooks was the guy she was in love with from the others two guys still in contention! She even came forth with the words, “I love you” to him!

Couple this with the fact that Des had to keep her feelings for Brooks under wraps till the finale, or it would be game over for the season, if she had declared it any earlier!   But when all it said and done, we had Brooks in tears, Des in tears walking away from him and going to sit by herself on the docks, while he got driven away in a limo!  Des always seems to never get the man of her dreams.  It was very dramatic and touching.

Now that begs the question, where does the show go now, since Des later fessed up to the camera that she now wanted to go home?  But what about the two men still left in the running, Chris and Drew, who have no idea what just happened? According to an interview today on GMA with The Bachelorette host, Chris Harrison, the other two gents were secluded from each other during the final romantic getaway dates, and have no idea what transpired!

So if you caught last night’s The Bachelorette, were you moved to tears by Brooks breaking Des heart? Was it better than a soap opera break-up? What do you think will happen next week on the second part of the finale? Will Brooks return with an ephiphany? Will Des choose Chris or Drew? Or will she just say none of the above and go on with her life without a reality show beau?  Share your thoughts!

It would be great if Brooks comes back and she chooses one of the other guys and sends Brooks home. I wouldn’t trust him!!!!

Shows like these need to be cancelled. People wonder why relationships are in the state of disfunction, just watch crap TV like the Bachelor and Bachelorette to see why. No one falls in love anymore, they just want to make a mockery of it on “live” TV. Reality shows like this need to go away!!

the bachelorette and bachelor are terrible,,
I can not understand why people can whore themselves out to the public with their intimate self looking for love, it is so stupid to hang your laundry and heart out to the public..
Those people need to check their mental health..

It is whoring ones self out to the media..

Much of these shows arent even real…some come with scripts. Two people from my hometown appeared on reality shows and one admitted that some stuff you see is real and some is added by the producers. My nephews ex wife and her current husband went to one of those pawn shops featured on tv and said they were handing out scripts to those appearing on the shows.

Goes to show how gullible some people are.
The reality shows are not actually reality, they are simply phony trash …

I can’t believe there are still people out there that give a shit about shows like this. What a colossal waste of time! It’s faker than a $3 bill and people are still gullible enough to watch and care???

watched all these years. How can you expect to find love after dating a few times and it being a contest to begin with. I’m over it this season. Des gets what she deserves.

I think that Brooks would be insane not to return to Des. He probably was insecure about not knowing that she really was in love with him and couldn’t admit to himself
that he really was in love with her thinking that he may not be the one. Des is heartbroken but Brooks is too. His family loves Des and he is realizing that he can’t live without her and will return to the show next week. He will be so sure that it is Des that he really loves.

General Hospital Set To Pay Tribute To The Late Susan Brown

2018 has taken with it some beloved soap opera veterans.  One of them was GH fan favorite, Susan Brown, who died at 86 of Alzheimer’s at the end of August.

GH viewers remember Susan’s performances as Dr. Gail Adamson Baldwin.  Gail was Monica’s (Leslie Charleson) best friend, and eventually she married Lee Baldwin (the late Peter Hansen) and was a stepmother to Scott Baldwin (Kin Shriner).

Kin took to Twitter last week and revealed that General Hospital taped a tribute to Susan that will be seen in an upcoming episode.

In a tweet, he shared, “A tribute show to Susan shot in the can airing soon!”

With GH’s tape schedule we would presume that sometime in January we will be seeing how GH addresses Susan’s passing and thus the fate of Gail.

So, are you glad to hear GH will be doing something very special to honor Susan?

Do you hope that there are major emotional scenes within it for Kin Shriner and Leslie Charleson?  Share your thoughts via the comment section below.

Network Exec, Angelica McDaniel On Y&R’s Staying Power: “We Have This Award-Winning, Ratings-Generating, Money-Making Show, And It Really Adds Value To CBS.”

This week, The Young and the Restless celebrated 30 years as the number-one rated daytime soap opera.  That is a streak of 1,560 weeks in the top spot.

Angelica McDaniel, executive vp daytime programs and syndicated program development at CBS, spoke to the Hollywood Reporter on what has made this remarkable run; attributing it to strong storytelling and a cast that includes several beloved veterans who have been around the entire time.

The executive noted that while other soaps over the years have fallen by the wayside, and even though we are down to only four surviving network soap operas, that Y&R will be around with no end in sight.

McDaniel stated, “We have this award-winning, ratings-generating, money-making show, and it really adds value to CBS. We expect it be a part of our lineup in the future.”

She also added, “The Young and the Restless has some of the best actors in the industry — not in soaps, not in daytime, but in television. We have iconic, legacy characters that have been on our show for decades. Melody Thomas Scott will be celebrating her 40th year on the show in February. Peter Bergman just reached his 30th anniversary in November. Eric Braeden started in 1980. We just have an incredible arsenal of actors who are so talented and play these characters so well that you don’t even realize they’re characters. They become people who are part of your life, part of your daily existence.”

As for the continual investment and ways the audience watches the show on various platforms, McDaniel expresed: “The great thing about daytime television is we have loyal, passionate viewers, and they really like to tune in day and date. They want to stick with their stories and see what’s happening today. … Having said that, The Young and the Restless is also one of the top streamed shows on CBS.com. As trends evolve, we are where our viewers are, and we’re making shows readily accessible so they can get their fix and follow their stories.”

So, what do you think about Y&R? Will it remain if and when all other soaps have come to theirconclusion? Do you think it will continue on for years to come, given its position at number #1? Comment below!
