You know it’s bad when all you can think of during all this is, “Wow, Michael looks good in a tux.” So far Nelle has outwitted everyone so I’m not sure this will be her comeuppance yet. At least we get to see more of Chase.

I know exactly the part you are talking about, she is an amazing actress. She knows how to use them eyes for sure!

She will probably go into labor…her water breaks and Micheal drowns in it-lol

Yeah, she pulls her own plug and her water breaks!

Very funny, but actually have read she goes out with a big bang, or explosion. I sure hope its after the baby is born.

Timmm

They wouldnt kill the baby. Its another murder mystery that I’m sure will suck! At least Carly will be locked away and not a suspect. The suspects will be Sonny, Michael, Ava, and Chase. All of which could go be with Blackie for all I care!

No doubt, Jimh! ..And why not? It will add the crowning touch to this marital circus since nothing is so classy as a heavily-pregnant bride!!!!

Im almost done with the show…only watch for this story!!!

Say what you will about Chloe Lanier and this storyline, but, she is a great actress! I think she is smart to jump ship. She has her Emmy and she has done an outstanding job delivering this material. I wish her well in her future endeavors. As far as this storyline, I hope there is a “catch”, a real surprise for us viewers. With Colonel Sanders visiting “Heiny’s Hospital” we are do for a soapy treat. The show has been unwatchable for the past few (if not more) months.

You know, dmr, I was watching Chloe the other day and couldn’t get over how great she is in this role. She said something to Michael that was sincere but, behind her eyes, I started thinking, “She’s on to him”. That’s what a multilayered performance should be and she truly deserved that Emmy. I hope she isn’t gone forever. Evil hasn’t been so well-acted since Maura West joined the show.

dmr

I think Nelle is on to Michael, too. Michael isn’t very smart, and Nelle is very devious and can outsmart them, all! She has street smarts!

Hi, dmr,
Could the big surprise be the baby is not Michael’s? Oh, how I wish that were the case!!!!…..I desperately hope Carly does not get her hands on another baby.
Somehow, I get this nagging feeling that Lucas and Brad will be involved in the baby-drama in a big way.
As far as Michael, I consider him a nonentity and waaaay toooo big for his britches…..he tries to do the Sonny-stare, which Is so annoyingly-Sonny; but works … yet, it is lost on Michael……not a charming guy….he does as much for me as Devon or Kyle….and now Nate ( Y&R).
I have missed a few eps…..still have not had the chance to catch-up….but, I sense that TPTB are trying to make it look like Sonny killed AJ in self defense?? Gimme a break–say it ain’t so!!
I will never forgive Michael’s betrayal–his best acting, I feel, was when he stood up to both his mother and Sonny and took Avery. I saw a man then….took the bull by the horns and ran with it.
This whole thing of ” let’s get Nelle” scheming is pathetic…..I’ve seen better sleuthing on Nickelodeon.

dmr
dmr

Celia,
I caught the show the other day, and “The Dimpled Don” mentioned killing AJ right in front of Jason and Michael, neither flinched. Now, I haven’t watched religiously, but, I don’t recall Jason knowing that Sonny killed AJ. Jason has returned, and is CarSon’s lapdog, and Michael thinks he is the next “Enforcer.” The kid has no brains.
I share the same opinion with you about Devon and Kyle on Y&R. Daytime TV is in the gutter.

Jimh

Josslyn setting up Nelle-Joss is part of plan to expose her…its why Oliver wearing that perfume!!!!

Celia
Celia

You are right, Jimmy. Joss caught on. What will happen is anyone’s guess. I’m stumped. I had ideas, but Carly’s charging-in like a bull…ummm…dozer ( clunky shoes or not), deflated my brainstorming and dimmed my lightbulb.

Nelle and Micheal in cae accident with Brad…Brad’s baby dies and Nelle goes into labor and switches her son with Brad’s dead one…Micheal and Brad unconcious in all this!!!

ConnieMac

I can’t figure out whether Michael of GH or Sonny of DOOL is the dumbest. Really? Marry a psycopathic killer to bring her down? What has marriage to do with it? All anyone has to do is ask the most important question. (pay attention Jason) Who went upstairs after the accident? If Carly is telling the truth, somebody took it. And Sonny? What numbnut CEO who is being accused of sexual harassment meet with the accuser? And who would cover up what was most definitely self defense? Good grief.

dmr
dmr

Sonny makes me laugh-especially when he tries to be all “gangstah” with his hair slicked by packing heat! HAHAHAHA! Seriously, Sonny, you don’t have what it takes to pull it off!
& in today’s world, what company doesn’t have an updated Harassment Policy/investigation practices?-so stupid!

Violet Lemm
Violet Lemm

Me thinks he’s been watching the other Sonny too much.

Celia
Celia

You are too funny, dmr….How many times have I said that Sonny has the Vito Corleone syndrome?
I guess Sonny has never been to Sicily….the mannerisms are waaaay off and Sonny’s affectation doesn’t even come close.
Doesn’t even look Italian—-he should probably mimic another bandido…..Italians have a distinct accent….regional, even in their own country.
So Carly got out of Hades…..did Kevin/Ryan facilitate her escape somehow. So bizarre…..as nutty as Mary Pat. She belongs there ….with the loonies.

Soaphound
Soaphound

I agree ConnieMac. It’s supposed to be Drew with the memory loss, not Jason. I mean, Nelle works with Ava and pals around with her on occasion, what else does he need to know? As far as Sonny on DAYS…it’s a good thing Freddie Smith is so handsome (though the chest hair is too much for my taste), because his character often elicits giggles. And not the intentional kind. But that smile and that gorgeous hair go a long way. And I’ll really miss one of my favorite daytime actors, Greg Rikaart. Hopefully GH can find a spot for him.

Celia
Celia

Thank you, ConnieMac….Exactly!! As I said, this is all child’s play.
The cover-up business is actully comedic…..this is drama??
You mention Sonny Kiriakis—-another dumb move ( I do Love Sonny K) , en par with “let’s get rid of the body in the rug” brainstorm—–self-defense on both counts.
If this new “plot” of marrying Nelle to “trap” her was designed to prop-up Michael; to give him the “jewels” to be a man? I don’t know what to say—-failing miserably. Michael is the ‘forever-boy’ for me.
Another thing? I am done with the Carly-Kevin sessions ( if he is, indeed, Kevin)……I will chalk them up as some of the most painful scenes I have ever seen—-does anyone really care about her nostalgic memories with Morgan?……or, coming to grips with his death so she could go on with her life?…..is it her own guilt of having been a non-existent, selfish mother?…..seems to me she was doing just fine appropriating another woman’s baby.
Good or bad, Ava is Avery’s mother…….and, what makes Carly a ‘better’ parent? Good grief is right!!! Right up my alley…..

Nelle is one of those soap opera characters who will never pay completely for her sins. She may be taken away but one day but she will escape only to come back and wreak havoc once again. Or… she will evade this trap, taking the baby (or perhaps leaving it in a safe place for Michael, thereby showing a shred of humanity), and the threat of her return will always remain hanging over Carly and Co.

Timmm
Timmm

This whole story and this sneak peak does NOTHING for me! I really dont care if Michael dies and Nelle takes Chase out as well! Who cares anymore? GH is a shell of itself and Frank has cheapened the show into a high school play!

Jillie

Then why do you keep watching?

Timmm

Because JILLIE, like some here who QUIT because of a story, a cast member being let go or a recast, Thats not me! I’m a fan until the end.

Soaphound
Soaphound

Well said, Timmm. Half the fun of daytime is making fun of the dumb stuff. For example, when have we EVER seen a soap detective as smart or diligent as Olivia Benson from SVU or any of the forensic folks from any CSI? Paul Williams is denser than concrete. And Dante? He spent more time on his hair than on any case.

dmr

& it’s like a train wreck, you just can’t take your eyes off of it.

Celia
Celia

Because that’s what we do, Jillie…..more out of loyalty….then we come on here, as warranted, and give out take on plots, situations, and whatnots.
It is a natural reaction…..those who love soaps, truly loooove soaps, become disenchanted and almost hurt by the nonsense that is taking place in practically all the shows. It seems they are copying each other….no variables. I think the PTB should hear this—-no effort or originality. Have they run-out of ideas? I hope not….the thought is funebral.

Stay well.

True, right, GH fan?
We love our soaps….we do accept, grudgingly, what the ‘elders’ dish out, whether we agree or not. Thus, the ofttimes, verbal ‘rebellions’, LOL.

I am being silly, but I had to really laugh,at that photo they took of Nelle and Michael after their wedding. She looked OK, but he looked stoned or something, and I am still laughing as I write this.

LISTEN TO THE REPLAY: Soap Nation Live! With Michael Fairman Season Premiere With Laura Wright, Jason Thompson, Michael Easton, Maurice Benard, Stacy Haiduk & Kim Zimmer

If you missed Thursday night’s season premiere of Soap Nation Live! with Michael Fairman it was a broadcast full of surprises, fun, and intriguing intel as some of the biggest names in the soap opera genre helped kick-off the series 2018 run of episodes.

Joining Michael in-studio as guest co-host was General Hospital’s Laura Wright (Carly Corinthos).  The show began with a guest call-in to surprise Laura, which was revealed to be daytime drama icon, and four-time Daytime Emmy winner, Kim Zimmer (Ex-Reva) of Guiding Light.  Laura and Kim worked together on the beloved CBS soap where they played sisters.  Kim expressed how much she enjoys checking out General Hospital and the actors performances she has loved watching which included: Max Gail (Mike), and the recently exited Nelle (Chloe Lanier), among others.  Michael, Laura, and Kim bantered on the actresses time on GL and more.

Next, GH’s Michael Easton (Finn) joined the show where he discussed the release of his upcoming 20th anniversary edition of his book 18 Straight Whiskeys, working on GH opposite Finola Hughes (Anna) and Jessica Tuck (Cassandra).  During his segment, Michael Fairman asked Easton to play a game show segment he prepared for him, which was called, “Michael, Who Said That?” In it, Michael Easton had to guess which one of his many soap characters was he portraying in the scene in the audio clip, and it made for one of the highlights of the night.

Calling in from New York City was Stacy Haiduk, who is about to make her debut this week on the August 21st of Days of our Lives as Susan Banks, replacing Eileen Davidson in the role.  Susan is back on the canvas just as John and Marlena’s wedding is about to begin.  The question is: Will more of Davidson’s roles be played by Haiduk during her upcoming rum on the show?  We chatted with Stacy about working on DAYS, and taking over the one-of-a-kind role of Susan made soap-famous by Emmy winner, Davidson.

Then, The Young and the Restless, Jason Thompson (Billy Abbott) was our special guest in the studio.  Jason talked about Billy’s latest stumble back into his gambling addiction, Phyllis’ fling with Nick, and if Billy will be able to resist the seduction attempts by Phyllis’ daughter, Summer on upcoming episodes.  Jason fielded several questions from fans who called-in to chat with him during his segment.  As well, throughout the broadcast, several listeners were able to get through the busy phone lines to pose a question to our guests.

Michael surprised the listeners with none other than Maurice Benard (Sonny) of General Hospital as the last guest on the show.  Maurice was celebrating his 25th anniversary as Sonny on the ABC daytime drama series.  With Maurice, some of the funniest moments of the night occurred when Jason and Laura recounted what happened the first time they met him.  Maurice also expressed that this past week, he taped some of his most favorite scenes of all-time, and Laura said they have been very emotional.  As announced, look for a special Sonny-centric episode in September in honor of Benard’s 25 years as Port Charles’ top mobster.

Finally, one lucky caller won a pair of tickets to the GH Fantasy Event in Atlanta, Georgia, during our game show trivia segment, when he had the correct answers (with an assist from Jason Thompson) to the questions.

Now, below click on the play button and hear the replay of the Soap Nation Live Season Premiere with Laura Wright, Kim Zimmer, Michael Easton, Stacy Haiduk, Jason Thompson, and Maurice Benard.

Queen Of Soul, Aretha Franklin, Passes Away As Soap Stars & Fans Remember Her Love For Her Soaps: Y&R and B&B

The world continues to mourn the loss of the one and only, Queen of Soul, Aretha Franklin, who died this past Thursday at age 76.   For some time, Aretha had been batting advanced pancreatic cancer.  The voice that meant so much to so many, and inspired so many female vocalists of today can never be replaced, and her songs and performances will live on in our hearts forever.

Over the last few days, television news programs have brought to us some heartbreaking, emotional, and uplifting moments from her dear friends: the incomparable Stevie Wonder, who shed tears while speaking of Aretha on the CBS Morning News, and with whom he went to see shortly before she died,  as well as Franklin’s longtime friend, Smoky Robinson, who spoke about his relationship with host Robin Roberts on Good Morning America.

This weekend, several tributes are on tap paying tribute to the mighty Franklin including those on TV One, and on OWN, with Oprah Winfrey’s Remembering Aretha Franklin: The Oprah Interview  tonight at 8PMEST.

But daytime fans were clued in to the fact that Aretha had a passion for the soaps.  She loved The Young and the Restless, and the character of Victor Newman (Eric Braeden).  In fact, Aretha was thrilled to be asked to help introduce the Y&R Daytime Drama Series nomination clip package at the Daytime Emmys in 1997.  She expressed why she was superfan of the show: “I watch it in the morning. I watch it when I’m at home. I watch it when I’m in concert. I watch it when I’m asleep …  I watch it!”   And one of the main reasons she loved Y&R, was Victor Newman: “Victor is one of my favorite characters in The Young and the Restless.  I love the way he makes his approach to a woman.  He’s the all-time player.”  The ‘Queen of Soul’ even did her own impersonation of him.

At the 2005 Daytime Emmys, Aretha presented the Outstanding Drama Series Award alongside Eric Braeden.  It was a thrill for her, and also notable for Braeden as he tweeted about his mishap where he accidentenly said, “God Bless, Eric Braeden,” when he meant to say, “God Bless, Bill Bell”.

Upon learning the news of Franklin’s passing, The Bold and the Beautiful’s Eva Basler (VP Communications for Bell-Phillip Productions and The Bold and the Beautiful) recalled on Twitter: “It was my first year at The Bold and the Beautiful & we were at rehearsals in NYC.  Aretha Franklin was on stage & looked down to the floor & screamed, “RIDGE! THORNE!” excited to see them in the front row. Later, I had the honor of escorting Susan Flannery & her thru the gifting suite.”

Courtesy/CBSBoldInsider

The official show Twitter feed posted: “The cast & crew of The Bold and the Beautiful are sending prayers & good thoughts up to Aretha Franklin & her family. Some of our cast met The Queen of Soul, who is a huge fan of B&B, at Radio City Music in NYC Pictured here with Susan Flannery. We LOVE you Aretha!”

Throughout the last few days so many soap stars have posted their sadness on the loss of Franklin, and what she meant to their lives and to all of ours.

Now below, watch the two moments of Aretha’s from the Daytime Emmys were she talks her love of Y&R, and presents with Eric Braeden.  Followed by the emotional interview with Stevie Wonder on the CBS This Morning and then Smokey Robinson’s remembrances. 

Then let us know your thoughts on the passing of Aretha, your favorite song of hers, and how wonderful it was to know that this American treasure was actually a soap opera fan, just like so many of you via the comment section below.

Maddison Brown Joins ‘Dynasty’ As Kirby Anders

Another familiar character to longtime Dynasty fans has been cast for its upcoming second season; that of the very troubled, Kirby Anders.

In the CW reboot, newcomer Maddison Brown has nabbed the role, originally played in the ABC version by Kathleen Beller.

According to EW.com, the character description reads: “Kirby grew up in the staff’s living quarters with her father, estate manager Joseph Anders, and sides more with the downstairs occupants than the upstairs.  She has a fraught history with the Carringtons, specifically a tempestuous relationship with Fallon that was the reason for Kirby’s exile from the Manor years ago.  And while she returns to Atlanta to make amends with her father, she will certainly continue wreaking havoc on the Carringtons.”

Brown is listed as a series regular for the new season.

Dynasty returns with all-new episodes on Friday, October 12th at 8PMEST.

So, what do you think of Kirby being back on the canvas against the Carringtons? Comment below
