Hi Jimh…You’re right, I knew Nelle reminded me of someone, and she does look like Michelle. The writers are setting Nelle up to be a schemer, but there is still a part of me that thinks she will eventually change course. But not after having done some damage. And I hope a pregnancy is is not part of it….real or not.

Jimh…Another thought…I’m lucky enough to be able to work at a bookstore. The store has many people come in of all ages and stages, and for some reason some will spontaneously confide to you things that are happening in their lives. But what I have noticed is that a bookstore can provide a “time out” from daily life for some customers. It provides a peaceful, safe environment; usually is adjacent to a coffee shop; has books of all categories to browse throw for free; no time limit like our soaps (Ha, Ha); and hopefully a restorative place for you to… Read more »

I am looking forward to seeing how Allison’s day went because I know of her work as an actress—not sure I ever saw her in directing but now that I know this, I will be looking out for that episode. Would be great if Frank talked her into being in front of the camera too so we could see her in a new role. she rocked it as Sami on DAYS and I do miss that character.

Perhaps Alison can do a guest run as Nelle’s adoptive mama on a future stint? Nelle might end up being the real daughter of Oscar Jessup/Olivia Jerome and cousin of Kiki and Avery.

Still confused what Scotty and Lucy will do with the pills and if their storyline crosses with Laura and Doc Kevin or Bobbie at some point. It’s great having these veterans back and would like to see more Kristina Wagner and Tristan Rogers soon too.

Stars React to Alec Baldwin Fatally Shooting Cinematographer Halyna Hutchins & Injuring Director, Joel Souza, In Prop Gun Mishap On Set of ‘Rust’

UPDATED: Over the last 24 hours, the entertainment world has been stunned, by the horrific incident that took place on the set of the western drama Rust, while it was shooting scenes in New Mexico.

What is known is that Alec Baldwin (Ex-The Doctors, Knots Landing) discharged a prop gun that killed Director of Photography, Halyna Hutchins and injured director, Joel Souza.  The film also stars Frances Fisher (Ex-Edge of Night) and Jensen Ackles (Ex-Days of our Lives). Baldwin is also a producer on the film.

According to Variety, the prop gun contained a “live single round,” according to an email sent by IATSE Local 44 to its membership.

On Friday, Alec Baldwin made a statement via Twitter on his Hilaria and Alec Baldwin Foundation Twitter feed, expressing: “There are no words to convey my shock and sadness regarding the tragic accident that took the life of Halyna Hutchins, a wife, mother and deeply admired colleague of ours. I’m fully cooperating with the police investigation to address how this tragedy occurred and am in touch with her husband, offering my support to him and his family. My heart is broken for her husband, their son, and all who knew and loved Halyna.”

Yesterday, The Sante Fe Sheriff’s Departments originally shared that “Hutchins, 42, and Souza, 48 were shot when a prop firearm was discharged by Alec Baldwin.  Ms. Hutchins was transported, via helicopter, to University of New Mexico Hospital where she was pronounced dead by medical personnel. Mr. Souza was transported by ambulance to Christus St. Vincent Regional Medical center where he was undergoing treatment for his injuries. This investigation remains open and active. No charges have been filed in regard to this incident. Witnesses continue to be interviewed by detectives.”

This morning, Frances Fisher revealed in a twitter conversation with Patricia Arquette, that director Joel Souza had been released from the hospital.  Meanwhile, photographs of a distraught Baldwin emerged following the shooting.

The news of the Baldwin prop gun incident, isn’t the first time something like this has happened. Jon-Erik Hexum was killed on October 18, 1984, on the set of the TV show Cover Up when he accidentally shot himself in the head with a gun loaded with blanks. Then, in 1993, Brandon Lee, the son of martial arts legend Bruce Lee, died from a prop gun accident on the set of The Crow by a cast member.

As the news made its way through the entertainment community and mainstream news, several soap stars shared their reactions to the fatal shooting accident.

General Hospital’s Jon Lindstrom (Kevin/Ryan) expressed: “Feeling so sad for everyone involved in the tragedy on the #RustMovie set. I do know the film was staffed with experienced, thoughtful professionals. Please, let’s wait until we have the facts. Nothing positive will come from passing judgement or casting aspersions before then.”

General Hospital and Dynasty’s Emma Samms (Holly, Fallon) shared on her friend Jon-Erik Hexum’s death: This AWFUL tragedy on #Rust is unfathomable to me. If all on-set protocols were being adhered to, how, on earth, could it have happened? After what happened to Brandon Lee and my dear friend Jon-Erik Hexam, the firearm protocols became incredibly strict. I was told (when I was with him at the hospital afterwards) that Jon-Erik had been working with a completely empty gun all morning. A blank (still very dangerous) was loaded and then immediately there was a delay. Exhausted, he was allowed to fall asleep – loaded gun in hand. hey woke him, but there was immediately another delay. Jon-Erik put the gun to his head, forgetting it now contained a blank, (because he had just woken up) and jokingly pulled the trigger. He was not the kind of person to play around with a loaded gun. #fortherecord”

We will continue to post reactions and update this story.

What are your thoughts on the fatal shooting on the set of Rust? Comment below.  How can this not happen again, so everyone is safe in this working environment when ‘dangerous’ props are called for or used to make a movie or a TV show?

Courtney Hope Gets Marriage Advice From Her Y&R Co-Stars Ahead of Her Wedding to GH’s Chad Duell

This weekend, The Young and the Restless Courtney Hope (Sally), is set to walk down the aisle and marry the love of her life, General Hospital’s Chad Duell (Michael).  The nuptials are to take place this Saturday, October 23rd according to the wedding planner Zola.

Ahead of the popular soap duo’s vows, Courtney asked some of her Y&R co-stars advice, but as their characters in a very cute Instagram video on The Young and the Restless IG account with the accompanying text: “Marriage advice you don’t normally hear… as told by the #YR stars 😉 A special thank you to our real-life bride-to-be @TheCourtneyHope for asking! 😂”

Participating are: Peter Bergman (Jack), Amelia Heinle (Victoria), Michelle Stafford (Phyllis), Mishael Morgan (Amanda), Christian LeBlanc (Michael, Eileen Davidson (Ashley), Elizabeth Hendrickson (Chloe), and Christel Khalil (Lily).

In terms of advice, Amelie Heinle told Hope, “As Victoria Newman, I would say that you need to marry a man that is not going to be around for very long, and especially if he has a lot of money.”

Christel Khalil offered up some Lily marital suggestions: “Don’t let your husband let you think that he’s dead and that you’ve slept with a ghost!”

As for Courtney and Chad, the couple had been dating for five years, and this past Valentine’s Day, they became engaged.
