Lots of chit-chat on social media this morning following the reveal initially at The Wrap of the cast for the upcoming Lifetime Movie on the behind-the-scenes of the making of the popular ABC sitcom Full House (1987 to 1995) that starred former GH star John Stamos along with Bob Saget.

The Unauthorized ‘Full House’ Story” is set to premiere on August 22nd at 8PMET/5PMPST on Lifetime.  Cast in role of Uncle Jessie, originally played by John Stamos, in none other than former Days of our Lives star and husband of The Young and the Restless Melissa Ordway (Abby), Justin Gaston (Ex-Ben)!

Filling out the remainder of the main roles in this “Unauthorized” story of the sitcom are Garrett Brawith as Bob Saget’s Danny Tanner. Dakota Guppy as a young Jodie Sweetin,  Justin Mader’s as Dave Coulier’s Joey, and the Lori Loughlin role being played by Stephanie Bennett.

In the meanwhile, Netflix is getting ready to shoot a revival of the series entitled Fuller House, with many of the original cast members in a pick up of the series some 20 years later.  Elsewhere, original Full House series stars Dave Coulier and John Stamos have already voiced their disdain for this unauthorized movie.  Check out the cast picture of the Lifetime movie here!  Then share your thoughts on the casting of Justin Gaston in the role of Jesse and the rest of the cast in the comment section below!

I know–I mean, really?
There is now an over abundance of good quality TV programs available now that I can hardly keep up with them.
What over paid pin head of an executive though this was a good idea?

Good grief, how embarrassing-they look ridiculous. The actress chosen to play Jodie Sweetin really resembles the actress when she was younger, IMO. Didn’t Lifetime learn their lesson with the ridiculous “Liz and Dick” movie featuring Lohan-that was utterly awful! I think it aired once (?) and was pulled the other it was scheduled to air.

OMG, dmr….that movie was such a bust. Logan as Taylor? Awful. Awful…il lion times awful.
I think Gaston is married to ‘Abby’, Y&R.

Have never liked Justin.

Yes, I thought he was a better Ben. Have NO idea how he is as a person. I just know I saw him sing on a show called Nashville Star eons ago, where Billy Ray Cyrus was a judge. Think that’s where he met Miley & got engaged to her. Think he’s now an actor & is married to the actress who plays Abby on Y&R. Well, come to think of it, I think he’s been an actor/model longer than a singer. As far as Lifetime, I pay almost 0 attention to their behind-the-scenes movies, maybe because I’ve worked behind… Read more »

WHY? WHY? Why is this even necessary? It was bad enough when they launched a reunion show on Amazon Prime, now this? Full House even in its acid washed jean glory days was mediocre at best. Let Full House rest in peace and let us not speak of it ever again.

DAYS OF OUR LIVES: Cady McClain Ends Her Great Run as Jennifer; But Not Before A ‘Wink-Wink’ Nudge-Nudge’ to AMC’s Dixie ‘Poison Pancake’ Debacle

Wednesday’s episode featured another solid performance by two-time Daytime Emmy-winner, Cady McClain as Jennifer Horton Devereux as it was the day of her mother, Laura’s (Jaime Lyn Bauer) funeral.

Last week, longtime viewers were saddened that the character of Dr. Laura Horton was killed-off.  The question remains did she fall accidentally and hit her head in a struggle with Gwen (Emily O’Brien), or did Gwen intentionally kill Laura?

Yesterday was also the final episode of McClain in the role of Jennifer – as far as know for now.   In story, following Laura’s funeral, Jennifer was heading to Boston to be with her brother Mike, to settle their mother’s estate and go through her belongings, etc.

Cady had taken over the role of Jennifer from Melissa Reeves, who chose to stay in Nashville during the Covid-19 pandemic.  As part of her departure, head writer, Ron Carlivati and the writing team, delivered a little wink-wink nudge-nudge to soap viewers and those of McClain’s time as Dixie Cooney Martin on All My Children.

In one of the most controversial soap death scenes of all-time, and one that was not kind to McClain, Dixie was killed-off the ABC daytime drama series after eating poison peanut butter pancakes. Fast-forward to 2021, and in an attempt to make DAYS Jennifer feel better, Julie (Susan Seaforth Hayes) whips up some banana pancakes with extra peanut butter!  When Jennifer declines them, Julie says she thought she liked them, to which Jennifer replied, “I used to.  But I had a bad experience with them once.  Now I can’t even look at them.”  Julie questions, “Bad experience?”  Then Jennifer says, “I’d rather not talk about it.”

In our books, McClain got the last laugh here getting to do a nod to the audience, who has followed her soap career for decades including the the 2007 killing of Dixie … by pancakes.

Previously, Cady shared in a 2020 interview with EW.com about the subject: “It was a dig at me by one of the writers that very much wanted to put me in my place. I had stepped out of line and they wanted to put me back in line, and I was going to eat those pancakes and I was going to learn my lesson, and I certainly did.”

So, what did you think of the mention of the ‘pancakes”? Will you miss Cady as Jennifer? Comment below.
