Ex-DAYS Gloria Loring On Miley Cyrus VMA Performance with Robin Thicke: "I was not expecting her to be putting her butt that close to my son!"

Miley Cyrus certainly stunned all of us with that tongue-waging and overtly-sexual (and that it putting it mildly) performance with over-sized Disney-esque characters on Sunday at the MTV Music Awards.  Miley was joined by singer Robin Thicke on stage for the performances of his hit song, “Blurred Lines”.  While Miley is all that anyone is talking about in the news or at any office watercooler, it would seem that Miley got all the attention she wanted in an attempt to transition her image permanently!

Meanwhile, Robin Thicke’s mother, former Days of our Lives star, Gloria Loring (Ex-Liz Chandler), watched with OMG Insider the performance of Miley and her son, and the show caught it on tape.

Loring blurts out, “I was not expecting her (Miley) to be putting her butt that close to my son!”  Loring also added later, “I don’t understand what Miley Cyrus is trying to do.  I think she’s misbegotten in this attempt of hers.   And I think it was not beneficial.”   But Gloria also echoed what all of us are seeing burned in our brains two days later when she uttered, “I can never unsee it!”

Watch Gloria’s reaction to Robin and Miley below, and then let us know what you thought of Miley Cyrus performance at the VMA’s?  Were you shocked?  Were you appalled?  Or, do you think this was a smart and calculated PR move that in the end will pay off royally for Cyrus?  And, what did you think of Robin Thicke’s performance in all this?  Do you even  remember it?  Comment away!

Yawn. She tries WAY too hard. Sorry but it’s been done before and with way more class by others. She’s becoming a cartoon of herself.

From what I’ve read on this whole thing, most of the comments were negative for both Miley and Robin. I realize Miley is trying to get away from Hannah Montana, but this show was too far over the top. Someone, somewhere during rehearsals or whatever should have had the sense to say this is not good….

Of course Conni baby boy Robin knew what was going down. My next question is what is next sex on stage with animals. So this is what our men in the military are fighting for so we can show everyone what a classless nation we are.

Miley is an immature moran starving for attention and overly desperate to shed her goodygoody Disney image…what works for Lady Gaga(but shes becoming predictable and boring but what a great singing voice) doesnt work for Miley…id say she needs a good old fashioned butt paddling but she’d probably use it in her tiredly insipid act.

Personally, I would have liked to see Robin Thicke simply stop singing and walk off he stage for the disgusting behaviour of someone who I believe has now ruined her career or any hope for respect from peers and fans. Last evening I spoke to four teens who knew of the VMA’s, one had viewed the show. They were unanimous in their reactions to the ‘performance’ by Miley. One young girl said it’s difficult enough to relate to boys as young women with standards of behaviour. Sad they felt that young boys, young men see a new public display of… Read more »

Why would Robin Thicke walk off? This was *rehearsed* choreography that both of them had practiced together at least once, and most likely twice. It was basically a recreation of the uncensored version of his “Blurred Lines” video, with elements (the way she used the foam fingers and his referree outfit) from his new, deeply offensive (to some), “Give it 2 U” video. She did exactly what she was asked to do–she should have said, no, let’s not kid ourselves and it degraded her–but Robin Thicke was not disrespected in any way. He was a full particpant–it was *his* video… Read more »

I think Miley is a sad little girl trying to be a grownup, and this was not the way for Miley to proclaim her adulthood! It was very distasteful and this could have been done in way that would have been sensuous but not disgusting! Being sexy does not mean being slutty! Miley could have been very sexy with this song, but instead came out looking like a little girl that is a low class wannabe adult!

I think Miley has been watching too much trashy reality shows if she thinks what she was doing was sexy. There is sexy and then there is vulgar and Miley sadly, like a lot talented young ladies out there today, doesn’t seem to know the difference. If her goal was to get attention– she got it– not sure in the long term it will help her. Unfortunately this clip will forever be a part of her video package, and even on her death, it will be shown– she will forever be the girl who did a dirty dance. As for… Read more »

Thank you for covering Gloria’s reaction, i appreciated it! I do think that Robin came out looking basically better in all that, but still, there had to be a dress rehearsal, he must have known this was going to happen. Unless Miley performed at a 6 and then turned it up to an 11 when the cameras finally rolled, that could have happened. Either way, Robin is not likely to be a bystander in all this, but he clearly did not encourage her in the performance as she threw herself at him, so that’s good for him in the long… Read more »

You are absolutely right about there having been a dress rehearsal, and a choreography one before that. And it’s not just that Robin would have known from the rehearsal what “she had planned” — he knew because it was his idea. The whole thing was mashing up his two videos, the uncensored version of “Blurred Lines” and the sports and gyrating women themed “Give it 2 U”. She was literally acting out HIS video on the stage and frankly, since she had a bikini on, it was LESS explicit than the uncensored “BL” video. I am not quite sure how… Read more »

We were watching Breaking Bad like everybody else! Very few people would know about this if they were not still talking about it. Her father might try getting her some professional help but I understand he is a loser also.

Miley and Gaga can only get attention by being the trashiest. Notice none of the guys doing this? lol. Sad that they have to be almost naked and trashy to get attention. Their music is so bad that they have to have a reason to get people to buy their music. So sad that it’s not about the music anymore. Adele, where are you????

Miley was trashy and is messed up. But to say – oh no, what’s she doing to Robin? Has she seen the music video for Blurred Lines? Has she listened to the music? I’m all about crazy-shaming, but Thicke and his ilk are part of the problem.

Here’s what I think: it’s sweet that his mother feels this way, but she clearly has not watched his videos, especially the uncensored version of the “Blurred Lines” video (with all the *actually* nude women dancing and crawling, especially the one who crawls topless in front of a sign that explicitly spells out ROBIN THICKE HAS A BIG D—-, and is only mildy changed in the censored version) and his new one for “Give it 2 U,” where he, among other things, has a woman dressed in cotton candy bend over in front of him as he pulls pieces off… Read more »

It’s a shame that Robin was involved with this. Yes, he should have walked off or pushed her off him, or backed away. It doesn’t make either of them look good, but especially not her. Whatever respect I may have had for her has gone. It’s a shame she went there.

While I agree that it was a completely inappropriate display, I, too wonder why all these people are defending him or thinking she somehow did something that was unplanned/unexpected–so much that he would/should have walked off or pushed her off. This was a total “live version” of his video where he has topless women doing the exact same thing to him (and worse), and the foam #1 finger and the lewd gestures are from his other video. This is totally Robin’s “thing” — him singing while women do dirty things all around him. Miley was wrong to sign up for… Read more »

Does anyone think she could play the mother of GH’s “Ava Jerome????” We still don’t know the backstory, as far as her parentage goes….seems like a huge question mark on how she fits into the Jerome family tree, since she was not featured the first time the crime clan was portayed. Just not buying that she and Julian are full brother and sister…they don’t seem to be very cohesive, like loving siblings, more like business partners….simply a thought!

I’ll bet she would never give back all the millions she made as Hannah Montana or the fame that came with playing that character which she now despises, apparently. Miley can be as nasty and trashy as she wants but most people will still remember her as that Disney character. This new image and her desperate antics are not working to get people to see her as a sexy adult. Instead she looks like a little girl trying way too hard to show everyone that she’s not a Disney princess anymore. I wish she had more self-respect for herself.

Calculated, absolutely. BUT, not smart. Yes, people are talking about her, but not in a positive way. I felt so embarrassed for her. She’s young and clueless. If a girl wants to shed the girl image, then she needs to ACT and BEHAVE like a woman, like a lady with class.

There was a news item today from producers at MTV that stated while this was rehearsed, Miley took it further. On the ‘carpet’ she said she planned on making this award show memorable and so she did. Sad thing is the public reacted and 2 of her songs hit #1 and #2 that night. Currently she is #3 and 6 on Billboard charts. So the public has some responsibility. Clearly the more risqué the more the public responds. We see it all the time, including our soaps. We demand certain behavior in order to be entertained. As for Miley, it… Read more »

Love Gloria Loring! Love her! As for that blurred lines song, I guess I just don’t get it. It’s raunchy already, and the video is crude, so this VMA stuff is more of the same. I’m 42, and maybe that’s old for some people, but I wouldn’t want my daughter up there disrespecting herself, and I wouldn’t want my talented son wasting his gift on such non-sensical trashy songs. On the other side of the coin, that sh*t is what’s selling in 2013 America.

Miley is in my opinion not a very good singer and had to draw attention to herself somehow. I would be ashamed of myself if I acted like her but I am not desperate and I know I can’t sing; so no pressure. As for Robin, I feel this was not a good act for him to partake in. His “Blurred Lines” song did not need promoting of this sexual nature. People won’t forget either of them for this performance. The damage has been done.

Seriously, she appeared to be a trashy, classless slut. Not a great way to jump start one’s career. Leave the damned glove for Michael Jackson (for some reason I didn’t mind it AS MUCH with him, although I didn’t like it much either) I don’t want to set a double standard, but these moves from Miley were just appalling. She is not a pretty girl, and the weird hairdo and the glove simply exacerbated her unattractiveness. Of course, I don’t know her personally and perhaps she is a lovely young woman. But probably not, or she would not have performed… Read more »

I amend my previous comment. Robin is completely culpable, and Gloria, where were was your moral indignation when your son was making his uncensored version of his BL video? I won’t link it here, but it’s right there on youtube, not hard to find, folks. Your son was equally responsible for that display as Miley was. Watch the video (as if you haven’t yet), and you will see that Miley was, indeed, as another poster above noted, simply acting out what the naked women in that video were doing. The tongue waggling, the flesh bikini (which was twice as much… Read more »

Cady McClain IN As DAYS Jennifer Temporarily Replacing Melissa Reeves

Rumors that have been swirling are confirmed true.  Cady McClain is coming to Salem and Days of our Lives to replace Melissa Reeves temporarily as the new Jennifer Horton Deveraux.  The casting news was confirmed by a Days spokesperson, according to Soap Opera Digest.

Daytime fans recall, Cady is a two-time Daytime Emmy winner and has previously appeared as Dixie on All My Children, Rosanna on As the World Turns and Kelly on The Young and the Restless.  McClain has already begun filming as Jennifer.

Reeves, who commutes from Nashville to Los Angeles to tape episodes of Days of our Lives, decided not to return to set when the NBC soap opera resumed production earlier this month due to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic,

In addition, Melissa became a grandmother last month with her daughter Emily’s first child, and now soon will welcome her son Larry’s first child later this month, which is another reason Reeves chose to stay put in Tennessee.

So, what do you think of the Jennifer switcheroo? Excited to see what Cady brings to the role? Comment below.

‘Knots Landing’s’ Beloved Kevin Dobson Dead at 77

Knots Landing longtime fan favorite, Kevin Dobson (Mack McKenzie) has passed away at the age of 77.  The actor’s death was first reported by the United Veterans Council of San Joaquin County’s Facebook page.  Dobson died on Sunday, September 6th via “medical complications”.

However, The Hollywood Reporter had more clarity and reported that Dobson died Sunday evening in a hospital in Stockton, California, after struggling with an autoimmune deficiency. Arthur Toretzk, Dobson’s rep, shared that with the entertainment news outlet.

The post via Facebook read: “Army Veteran, Veterans Rights Activist, Film and Television Actor Kevin Dobson has passed away. He was 77 Years Old. Condolences to the entire family. Rest In Peace… March 18 1943-September 6 2020.'”   Dobson was the former chairman of the organization.

During his career in primetime, Kevin was also widely known for his work on the crime show, Kojak from 1973 to 1978, playing Detective Bobby Crocker working alongside Telly Savalas.   Earlier in his TV career he appeared on: The Mod SquadEmergency! and Cannon.

When Don Murray’s exited Knots Landing in 1982, Dobson was cast in the role of M. Patrick (“Mack”) McKenzie, the love interest for Michele Lee’s Karen.  Lee and Dobson became an undeniable favorite duo of the CBS primetime soap opera and for all-time in soap history.  During his run on ‘Knot’s from its fourth season to its conclusion in 1993, Dobson won five Soap Opera Digest Awards for his performances.

In addition, Dobson got his start in daytime soaps, and eventually wound back on them following the ending of ‘Knots’.  He first appeared on NBC’s The Doctors. In 2008, DAYS hired him to play Mickey Horton after two other actors did not work out replacing, the original Mickey,  John Clarke, who retired, In shorter stints, Kevin played Governor Harrison Brooks on One Life to Live in 2003. and Judge Devin Owens on The Bold and the Beautiful in 2006.

He is survived by his wife Susan and his three children, Sean Dobson, Patrick Dobson and Mariah Dobson.

Marci Miller Opens Up About Her Decision to Return to DAYS and Her Concerns Replacing Kate Mansi

This week will mark the return of Marci Miller in the role of Abigail Deveraux DiMera on Days of our Lives.

The popular actress, who had been nominated for two Daytime Emmys in the Lead Actress category during her initial run on the NBC soap opera, revealed some of the complex emotions she had in determining whether or not to come back to Salem as detailed in this week’s Soap Opera Digest on newsstand now.

Once again, Miller is taking over the role from her predecessor, Kate Mansi.  As DAYS fans know. Mansi won a Daytime Emmy for her work as Outstanding Supporting Actress in 2017 and first played the role from 2011-2016, then Miller took over the role.  Abigail’s last arc was played by Mansi when she returned from 2018- to the first part of 2020.  Miller had stepped away from the role in 2018 as she wanted to concentrate on other projects.

In regards to her comeback, Miller shared with SOD: “You never know how discombobulating it might be.  That was one of the things I had to weigh in coming back, was whether or not it was fair to the fans for me to accept (the offer) because Kate hadn’t been there for a very long stint. For them to do this flip-flop thing was a little bit of a concern of mine.”

Miller ultimately says she felt that it was better to have Abigail on the canvas, than not in all, and in the hands of an actress who was familiar with the role than a new actress to take over the part.

Make sure to check out SOD for more on Marci’s decision to return to the NBC soap opera.

Meanwhile, look for an exciting story ahead for Miller when Abigail gets back in action in Salem.

So, what do you think of Marci’s careful thought-process to coming home to DAYS? Comment below.
