God, no! Keep that quack where he currently is. We don’t want him in PA!

He’s a quack, a so-called physician, known for promoting alternative medicine and for endorsing hydroxychloroquine to treat Covid-19, an idiotic suggestion also promoted by another idiot/self-promoter/con artist/president (2017-2021). He will fit in great with the current Republican party: truth deniers, vaccine deniers, insurrection deniers, and those willing to give a pat on the back to the likes of Gosar, Boebert, Gaetz, and Taylor Greene, among so many deplorable others. And, yes, “deplorable” was the appropriate term all along…

Oh, jamesj75, this man is a JOKE. Don’t you love when he proffers a new “lifesaving product” (which he undoubtedly gets big kickbacks from) …. “right after this message.” Wow! Must really be important if it has to wait for a commercial! And he’s also against vaccination mandates and masks. Glad I don’t live in a state where he’d even make the ballot.

Thank you for your reply, Soaphound! When any legitimacy is afforded to quacks, frauds, and would-be dictators, there is a problem…

He is a scammer peddling all these useless medical and health claims.
He has lived on a huge compound in NJ for 3 or more decades. Continued scamming….

What a quack! He’s a anti-vaxxer and will likely turn into another Trump, which we don’t need. Keep him away from politics.

A TV quack who appeared on Faux Fox and downplayed covid now wants to be in politics. Oh, goody. Maybe one day he can run for President and the Pillow Guy can be his VP. Sounds about right for the GOP. Another con artist, power-hungry fool. Trump opened up the door to the dregs of society.

Rebecca 1…What gets me is how a person who had good medical credentials in the past could go over to the dark side with some of his opinions. Plus he has a lot of money to fund himself. If there is any consolation (and not any from me) there should be lots of competition from other “Republicans” wanting the open senate seat.

And the quack had been living on NJ for 30 years? I don’t get it?

Trump didn’t open that door, he just made it a little wider. The first celebrity president – turned right wing extremist reactionary – was a former “B” movie actor named Ronald Wilson Reagan. And no, despite the number of letters in each of his names, he was NOT my son!!

The ting with Oz, is–
He is a dangerous quack. He cons people into buying his junk cures.
Bing a quack selling his junk is equal to a grifter a con.
He makes money off of gullible people.
He is a self-serving arsehole.
A great many people are wise of him.
But- in these days in politics, being on the
the dark side of honorable is the in thing, sigh.

I’ve felt that way for years, probably unjustly so about Dr. Phil whom Oprah also endorsed, setting him on his way. Just could never believe he’s all that.

Marcus Coloma On His GH Exit: “I Don’t Know Why That Decision Was Made, But I Don’t Feel Any ill Will and I Didn’t Feel I Got Fired”

This week, GH fans saw Adam Huss returning to the ABC soap opera as Nikolas Cassadine to finish out the rest of the scenes originally intended to be played by Marcus Coloma who ended his three-year run on the show a tad early.

As has been previously reported, Coloma came down with Covid-19 as his final tape days neared, and a decision was made for him to not return to finish off his last run of episodes.

With all the rumors and stances taken by everyone involved, Coloma was the special guest on this week’s episode of the That’s Awesome Podcast hosted by Steve Burton and Bradford Anderson and discussed his departure from the long-running daytime drama series.

Marcus expressed that when he took the role on GH, he was excited to be in that kind of environment (working on a soap opera), and only signed on for three years.  However, as time went by it became more difficult to reconcile leaving when his contract was up, sharing: “You fall in love with the crew and everybody along with it. So, two and a half years in, this decision that was so clear in the beginning is getting complicated.”

The actor added that while, “I knew the end was coming, it wasn’t like GH was saying, ‘Hey, Marcus, we want you to stay.’  There was no negotiation … and all I can say to that is I don’t know why that decision was made, but I don’t feel any ill will and I didn’t feel like I got fired. It just felt like … there was maybe an understanding that I was going to be there for three years. The big surprise is how much it hurt. Even though I knew I was going to leave.”

In the end, Coloma reflected that this may have concluded as it should, adding, “I really do have some big goals and those goals would have never been realized if I would have stayed. That’s not to take anything away from GH because I admire everything about it.”

Watch the episode of That’s Awesome featuring Coloma below.

Then weigh-in, what do you think of Marcus’ thoughts on his exit as GH’s Nikolas Cassadine? Share your thoughts in the comment section.

According to Deadline, Ripa will host Let’s Talk Off Camera with Kelly Ripa, where she will have in-depth conversations with celebrity guests. Depending on the subject matter, a specialist or expert could also join the episode to provide insight.

I have dreamed of a platform where I can have these honest talks without all the fuss and filter of a camera. Now SiriusXM has made my dream a reality with a podcast featuring friends, both old and new, discussing a variety of topics we all face in life, while getting deep with some experts’ views and advice along the way. Not another podcast, this is off camera!”

New episodes of Let’s Talk Off Camera with Kelly Ripa will be available every week on Stitcher, the SXM App, and all major podcast listening platforms beginning in March.

Kelly will be quite busy co-hosting the syndicated talk show Live with Kelly and Ryan, in addition to Let’s Talk Off Camera with Kelly Ripa.
