I didn’t either. I was looking in the article for a reference to “adoption” or “surrogate.”

She must have been pregnant in her waning days on Y&R but didn’t look like she was expecting.

Yup! After Hilary’s declaration, Mark Y, maybe Nikki’s nose will come down a peg or two. Having been a stripper is not the “worst” in Nikki’s past. Gutter urchin comes to mind…LOL.

I like her but I’m not buying this sentence in the article: “Many have considered Collins work in her final storyline before her exit to be some of her finest work.” Collins is a good actress but the writing for her was so horrible when she left that I can’t believe anyone would think this is her “finest work.” This is not a criticism of her acting but a critique of the quality of the script she was given. The plot was terrible; the acting alone couldn’t save it. If those scenes seriously qualify as the “finest” work that Collins… Read more »

Eileen Davidson, Vince Van Patten & Caitlyn Jenner In Cast Of New Sitcom ‘Duke of the Valley’

A fictional apartment building featuring a set of very eccentric tenants in the San Fernando Valley of Southern California is the backdrop for a new indie comedy sitcom based on the memoirs of the late Dick Van Patten, best known for his role on the ABC series, Eight is Enough.

The show entitled, Duke of the Valley is co-created by Dick’s son, Vince Van Patten and his grandson, Duke Van Patten, who also wrote the series together. In addition, Vince is also directing and one of the producers of the series.

According to The Wrap, Caitlyn Jenner will star as Heather a transgender “white trash” woman who sells perfume at the counter of Macy’s.  Others in the cast include: Vince Van Patten’s wife and two-time Daytime Emmy winner, Eileen Davidson (Ashley, Y&R and Ex- DAYS and RHOBH), who plays Brenda, a washed-up actress who can’t accept that her career in showbiz is over.

Vince Van Patten takes on the role of a homeless killer named Skipy, who demands to camp outside the apartment building.  Meanwhile, Duke Van Patten plays himself as an actor in Hollywood living in a dingy apartment building in the San Fernando Valley that happens to be owned by his ‘crazy uncle Jimmy”, played by none other than James Van Patten.

Duke of the Valley is currently in production, but without a network or streaming service attached to it yet.  Thus, no release date has been set as this time either.

So, what do you think of the premise of Duke of the Valley featuring Caitlyn, Eileen and Vincent? Comment below!
