Cute promo, but it does not really tell us anything at all. Plus, Disney-ABC needs to release these new promos, because I am dying to see them!

Not sure what to make of the generic promo except how great Josh Swickard looks in that red pullover. Another tease about Michael and the baby? More Carly & Sonny? Woweeee. On the plus side there’s Drew & Kim, Monica, Franco (boy, he has awesome hair) and Elizabeth… and how great Josh looks in that red pullover.

I love reading your comments, Soaphound– It’s one AM on the east-coast and I can’t sleep…. so, here I am, LOL. AHHH, that red pullover!!
I’m somewhat disappointed ……Willow is not a good match for Chase. She’s cute…..Too cute. He needs someone spicy ( as I was typing ‘spicy’, a chili pepper emoji popped up– so apropos!!
Methinks Willow is Wiley’s mommy!! And, Nina’s daughter….considering Kiki is gone, I must continue with the fantasy somehow….
I am going downstairs for some hot chocolate–hope it does the trick. I have an early class….
Nite….❤️

I had to come back to this, Soaphound…..I replied to you in the middle of the night ( insomnia) —-I guess my post did not make it?!
I had said that Willow is Wiley’s ( or is it Whiley?) mommy……at least, she thinks she is. What a tangled web …etcetera!! And, a shame!! I do not like the path this story is taking.
Same theme over and over, in every soap. The writing’s on the wall….pardon the pun.
From what I’ve read, as I brought myself up to speed after I started watching GH; didn’t Jason think Michael was his?
So, are TPTB using some kind or ironic ploy here?

But Celia, what is the purpose of this except to expose the baby switch, which Liesl seems bent on doing all by herself? Willow will think Wiley is hers when her baby actually died, right? So she’s being set up for double disappointment. Not right! Just so Michael can have yet another lady to romance/disappoint? Give Chase someone worthy of his sweet goofiness, not some tragic damsel with no sense of humor.

Hey, Soaphound…..I don’t like Willow’s character. Not for Chase. She is as boring as puppy-eyed Michael. They belong together. They could stare into each other’s eyes for eons and see nothing.
I wish I could ken where all this is going……why so many characters? Why is Liesl back? Will she be Ryan’s next victim….I will not be happy if she were brought back just to fill the quota of his killing spree…..Ryan should get rid of Lulu instead, in one fell swoop. When will Ava figure him out?
When will Stella tell forgot-his-name ( her lover from her past) that Curtis is their son?
The best thing watching ( caught up with all my soapies today) was seeing Felicia….this woman never ages–so beautiful!!
What is the point of Shiloh? Of Christina? Of Sam and her lap-dog, Jason? Is Shiloh ( Hank? Or whatever his name is) the mystery person texting Sam? I bet he was never a whichamacallit in Drew’s past…..thing is, my interest was not piqued and I don’t care……DOOL is the soap to watch right now. Both GH and Y&R frustrate me.
Happy New Year, my friend.❤️

Broadway Legend Carol Channing Dies At 97; B&B Remembers Her Time On The Soap

The beloved and iconic star Carol Channing has passed away at age 97.  Best known for her performance as Dolly Levi in Hello Dolly, the Tony Award-winning actress also picked up a Golden Globe for her role in Thoroughly Modern Millie, and was nominated for an Academy Award for it as well, throughout her enduring career.

Reports on Tuesday detail that Channing died at her home in Rancho Mirage, California, of natural causes.

While Channing did so much in her illustrious career, she also appeared as herself back in 1993 on CBS’ The Bold and the Beautiful.  That’s when the Forresters staged a celebrity-filled fashion show with plenty of glitz.

In a tweet with a photo of B&B’s enduring star, John McCook (Eric Forrester) pictured with Channing, the daytime drama shared: “All of us at mourn the loss of our friend, the legendary star, . She was a true original and there will never be anyone like her. Ms. Channing appeared as herself on B&B in 1993. May she rest in peace.”

Channing’s performance as a diamond-loving showgirl, Lorelei Lee, in the Broadway musical Gentleman Prefer Blondes back in 1949 made her a star.  Marilyn Monroe would play the role in the film adaptation.

Later in her TV career, she appeared on numerous shows including: Rowan & Martin’s Laugh-In, The Love Boat, Touched by an Angel and several game shows, to name just a few.

Check out this week’s promo for GH below, and then let us know; who you think will truly be Ryan’s next victim, or will he finally be caught?  And, what have you thought of the performances of Jon Lindstrom in this storyline? Comment below.

David Canary’s Daughter Raises Question If Repeated Head Traumas From His Football Past Contributed To AMC Star’s Condition Before His Death

Chronic Traumatic Encephalopathy (CTE) is a progressive degenerative brain disease that is now widely known to be the outcome of repeated head traumas, concussions and more for many NFL athletes, Pro Wrestlers, hockey players and more   It has caused mental illness, severe behavioral changes and more in younger athletes to even old-timers, many who suffer unaware what is happening to them. Some athletes who have committed suicide have been later to have been diagnosed with CTE when their brains were donated to research.

Kate Canary, the daughter of All My Children’s beloved and late, David Canary (Adam/Stuart Chandler), is a contributing writer to the New York Daily News, and she wrote a heartfelt, and thought-provoking article, on just what happened to this icon, who died in 2015 at the age of 77  with his formal diagnosis being Alzheimer’s disease.

However, David’s earlier football past as a high school and college football player could very well been the reason why he suffered so many years before, and as Kate related here in these excerpts: “But this diagnosis came after years of suffering with Dad’s cognitive decline, and arguably decades of signs. Without exposing the most excruciating details of a disease that could extinguish the most vibrant of men, I can confess that his case was anything but typical.  We lost him in fits and starts, over and over, for roughly seven years leading up to his final breath. Begrudgingly, we learned to lie to him — ‘entering his world,’ as my brother Chris so delicately deemed it — to skirt the contradictory truths that would trigger his outbursts, which left physical scars on objects, on himself, and on others. We knew many families who had faced Alzheimer’s, yet we were the only ones uttering the comparison ‘Jekyll and Hyde.  Those closest to Dad witnessed firsthand the erratic, delusional and at times explosive episodes that characterized his particular case, which we tried attributing to an overactive imagination in a broken brain. But as more information emerges about CTE and the nature of its symptoms — the violent mood swings, the lapses in judgment, the hours-long hallucinations, the paranoid delusions — we are left with more questions than answers, more regret than relief.”

Kate goes on to state the facts that David Canary suffered at least four major concussions as a lineman in his high school and college football playing days between the ages of 16 and 22, (she also relates that those are the ones he remembered).  She also notes the multi-Daytime Emmy winning star has experienced cognitive difficulties decades before his Alzheimer’s diagnosis, and that there was no genetic lineage that the family knew of that would you would often find with Alzheimer’s patients.  She also noted that David’s volatility was unusual for a patient suffering from this disease, which leads us all back to CTE.

In the end a loving daughter asks the questions, “Did football kill my father?”  Kate was on the verge of looking into a way to donate David’s brain to science, but sadly he passed away eight weeks later in November of 2015.

The upshot is that when mothers and fathers allow their kids to play football or other-related sports at an early age were concussions are a possibly or involved, think again, you could be changing the course of their lives forever.

So, what did you think of what Kate shared about David Canary’s mental health and condition?  It would seem CTE could have been the root cause of what befell this giant of a man in the daytime soap world. Share your thoughts via the comment section below.
