Poor child. Claudia was such an uninteresting character. They paired her with everyone but Fallon and she still never got legs. When they ran out of ideas they’d make her Kimberly/Melrose crazy. They often ran out of ideas.

You are hilarious but it’s so true. The character and actress were dishwater dull and back then if you didn’t record it on the VCR there was NO FF PERIOD!!

This is a reboot though. Who knows, maybe they are aware how paper thin boring she was and they’ve made some much needed changes to her character and her story. I’m personally reserving judgment until I’ve at least watched the first episode.

Good for her but Dynasty should had been a continuation of the original instead of a reboot…been there done that…hope it goes for her sake and all but i have fond memories of the original and wont be watching the remake!!!

I agree, wish they went the Dallas route of continuation, except for the telenovela they tried to turn it into and hopefully they would have someone with a strong sense of the history of the show.

Of all the characters NOT to bring back for the reboot, Matthew and Claudia Blaisdel (and daughter Lindsay) would be at the top of my list.

I liked the original Dynasty and the actors and actresses. Not interested in the new one at all!! It will never come close to the original. Because no John Collins, Linda Evans, Etc. Need I say more.

I find this reincarnation of Dynasty to be so confusing. They aren’t picking up where it left off. They aren’t going back in time to the beginning. It doesn’t make sense.

When I faithfully watched the original “Dynasty,” I was always Team Krystle, even though I appreciated the entertainment value of the work of Joan Collins as Alexis. Further, I was also Team Claudia! As played by Pamela Bellwood, Claudia was sensitive, fragile, and dynamic — an unsung heroine of the show. I am glad this important character will be part of the reboot. I suspect that Brianna Brown will do a fine job.

I completely agree with you about Claudia. Very well said. She was always one of my favorite characters.

James…I get what you’re saying here, Brother. I really do. But, remember…the original Claudia (originally played by Pamela Bellwood) was truly ONE OF A KIND!!!!! So, therefore, Brianna Brown better look like bringing her A-GAME (or whatever) to the Dynasty reboot.

Just saying……….

Later, Brother.

Whoa!! That Claudia chick was whacked! This one has good experience at playing a nutjob. But this “reboot” is going to tank after one season. It is not focusing in on any of the fun and frivolity of the original series. It is trying to be politically and racially diverse, dark and edgy, while using the Dynasty name and similarities. The Dallas reboot worked because it continued the narrative of the original hit and included the REAL characters.

I have no doubt in Brianna’s ability to work hard and do a good job as an actress. This reboot though – ugh! Just make a new prime time soap or do what they did with Dallas, continue it not remake it. I have no plans to watch.

I want to know who they are getting to play Diahann Carol’s role.

General Hospital and Dynasty Star, Emma Samms Shares Her Battle With “Long Covid”

While General Hospital fans have been curious to find out just what is the true fate of Holly Sutton who is believed to have died, sending Robert Scorpio (Tristan Rogers) on a mission to find out just what had happened to her, Sutton’s portrayer, Emma Samms has been going through her own difficult time since testing positive for the coronavirus back in March in the U.K.

Samms was never hospitalized for her symptoms related to the virus, but according to a report and interview with The Times, she has been suffering from long bouts of tremendous fatigue, where even small tasks like talking on the phone or doing gardening have become difficult for her.

Emma revealed, “This panic-inducing level of fatigue has been less startling and immensely compromising … and it fluctuates. I improve slightly, have a couple of good days, and assume I am on the road to recovery, only to go right back to feeling horrendous.”

The popular actress has a condition currently called “Long Covid”.  However, researchers and doctors  who are working closely on COVID-19 are still unsure why certain people have been unable to recover, nor how to treat the condition, which mimics Chronic Fatigue Syndrome.

The actress who first became soap famous for GH, later appeared on the original ABC version of Dynasty as Fallon Carrington.

Send your thoughts and well-wishes to Emma during this difficult time, as we know many General Hospital fans would love to see her back on the ABC daytime drama series as a very much alive, Holly.  Comment below.

How B&B & ‘Dynasty’ Showrunners Are Being Creative To Keep Sex & Intimacy Alive In The Soap Genre Amidst COVID-19

In one of the more entertaining but true titles of an article in the New York Times, “How to Shoot a Sex Scene in a Pandemic: Cue the Mannequins” several series executive producers and showrunners participated and related how they are coming up with ways to exist in a COVID-19 world, but need to keep the love stories, and intimate moments still look alluring for its viewership, especially those bonafide soaps.

At the forefront remains The Bold and the Beautiful and its executive producer and head writer, Brad Bell.  BOLD has returned to making new episodes and as noted today, will be airing all-new episodes come July 20th.

In the NY Times piece, Bell shared on making the love scenes work:  “At first, we took out the love scenes, and the show was falling a little flat because we’re all about romance and family interactions. One of the first ideas we had was to bring in mannequins for the intimate scenes and hospital scenes, and it’s working quite well — we’re shooting it from a great distance or in a way you can’t see the form is inanimate.”

When asked how his cast is handling the transition to lifeless stand-ins, he shared.  “We’ve had a lot of strange looks and questions like, Do you really want to do this? But everyone is game. They are getting their first latex kiss.”

Another soap, CW’s Dynasty, who had to wrap its 3rd season much earlier than they had hoped, without the wedding of Fallon and Liam due to COVID-19, is figuring out how their over-the-top sexy sudsy show might look when it returns.

Showrunner, Josh Reims shared with the Times: “Phone sex has certainly come up a lot. I was looking through the first episode written before all this, and basically removed everything that said, ‘And then they kiss.’”

Reims noted: “The joke among the writers is that we will watch two characters say they want to have sex and then cut to them saying, ‘That was some great sex.’”

It is Reims true hople that when Dynasty returns next spring in 2021, that the effects of COVID-19 will not be felt or will have at least subsided, adding “No one is watching ‘Dynasty’ to be reminded of a pandemic.”

So, looks like soaps are leading the charge to get you back to enjoying love in the afternoon or the evening? Comment below.
