Although I wish them well, and the photo was beautiful, albeit very staged, because who happens to have a photographer standing by to capture such a private moment? And if not staged then call me in a stick in the mud for believing some situations in life should remain private. I never understood this recent trend for everyone to post their most intimate moments on the web for all the world to see— what’s next a selfie of the two of you at the altar just before you exchange your I do’s? Shaking my head and very grateful I was… Read more »

A simple I am happy for them would have been fine, why rain on their parade they are happy and wanted to share it with everyone may not be your cup of tea but we are in the age of the internet either get on board or be left behind. I for one think it was a beautiful picture, sentiment and not staged it was a moment to cherish & we as fans should be honored Jason allowed us to share his happiness.

Oh lighten up– JT never going to read my comment and I didn’t rain on anyone’s parade. I wasn’t voicing disapproval, just bewilderment. When my husband proposed to me it was in private, it was our moment, and I had no desire to share the details to anyone else, on the internet or otherwise. And you see him sharing that moment as an honor, I see it as publicity– and I can say so if I want to.

You certainly have the right to say so, however I don’t see it as a publicity stunt at all, that cheapens the moment and if you have ever met & spoken to JT you would know he is not like that at all. Since you value privacy so dearly next time don’t comment at all. do all of us all a favor who thought it was sweet & endearing and like say keep it private you are in the minority.

So let me get this straight– you believe I had a right to my opinion, but I shouldn’t express my opinion in case someone like you might not like what I say or I might say something that majority doesn’t agree with? I am sorry but I am going to comment on any topic in anyway I want to– and you are free not to read them or any comment in case someone says something you don’t like to hear—-but I myself like to live in world where people don’t all think and feel like me, and despite in the… Read more »

I can see you have an agenda so I don’t wish to engage with tit for tat. I am happy for them they are a beautiful couple so leave it at that don’t bother replying since this is my last comment on the subject especially to you, Your assumptions regarding me are so off the mark I feel sorry for you,

They’re not having sex Mary SF. “Such” moments as these? They’re beautiful, happy moments…of a celebrity…with a model (am I right, Michael? Is she a model or is that a different girl with the same name…) The “Royals” have a public wedding. People videotape and post their vows, first dances, baby’s first steps, etc. This is not like airing “dirty laundry”…. I think Natalie responded, and now I have too, because you seemed to have SUCH a negative reaction to a great pic from a soap actor that most on this board like very much. Obviously they had a photographer… Read more »

And when I said “with a model” I meant that I think his fiance IS a model…(though not sure of it) but I stand by my post regardless.

Thanks for the reply rebecca1– I am fully aware that when I post a comment on this site, anyone can reply to it. I have no problem with that, nor with people disagreeing with me. However, when they do it by attacking my character rather my point, or tell me I shouldn’t or can’t think or feel the way I do, and do it with attitude I draw the line, and respond in kind. All natalie had to do was add a simple why to her statement. Why couldn’t you just be happy for them? Why did you feel it… Read more »

And thank you, Mary SF. I think it’s great when any of us, myself included, take the time to reflect on any altercation and see how it could have been handled differently. Wish more people did that offline as well. No harm done. Unfortunately, as again…offline…different opinions and yes, the way they’re expressed cause conflict. This site’s supposed to be fun. Hope we can all get past this and future “tiffs” and enjoy the site. And yes…the way we talk to each other, on and offline, matters. With that said…I think if our fictional soap peeps were all so nice… Read more »

No one needs to feel sorry for me, but rather for the state of civil discourse that has sunk to the level where if one cannot defend or dispute a position in a respectful, thoughtful and logical manner they resort to attacking a person’s character, motivation, intentions and when all else fails their right to express their ideas, basically telling someone to shut up. My only agenda was to defend myself against such unfair tactics, and to ask this person to think about what they are saying and how they are saying it, but instead of doing that, they again… Read more »

A lot of us knew you would get engaged but we thought it was going to be to Kimberly Mccullough but i am sure she is very happy for you both. Please lose the beard you look better without it.

Stars React to Alec Baldwin Fatally Shooting Cinematographer Halyna Hutchins & Injuring Director, Joel Souza, In Prop Gun Mishap On Set of ‘Rust’

UPDATED: Over the last 24 hours, the entertainment world has been stunned, by the horrific incident that took place on the set of the western drama Rust, while it was shooting scenes in New Mexico.

What is known is that Alec Baldwin (Ex-The Doctors, Knots Landing) discharged a prop gun that killed Director of Photography, Halyna Hutchins and injured director, Joel Souza.  The film also stars Frances Fisher (Ex-Edge of Night) and Jensen Ackles (Ex-Days of our Lives). Baldwin is also a producer on the film.

According to Variety, the prop gun contained a “live single round,” according to an email sent by IATSE Local 44 to its membership.

On Friday, Alec Baldwin made a statement via Twitter on his Hilaria and Alec Baldwin Foundation Twitter feed, expressing: “There are no words to convey my shock and sadness regarding the tragic accident that took the life of Halyna Hutchins, a wife, mother and deeply admired colleague of ours. I’m fully cooperating with the police investigation to address how this tragedy occurred and am in touch with her husband, offering my support to him and his family. My heart is broken for her husband, their son, and all who knew and loved Halyna.”

Yesterday, The Sante Fe Sheriff’s Departments originally shared that “Hutchins, 42, and Souza, 48 were shot when a prop firearm was discharged by Alec Baldwin.  Ms. Hutchins was transported, via helicopter, to University of New Mexico Hospital where she was pronounced dead by medical personnel. Mr. Souza was transported by ambulance to Christus St. Vincent Regional Medical center where he was undergoing treatment for his injuries. This investigation remains open and active. No charges have been filed in regard to this incident. Witnesses continue to be interviewed by detectives.”

This morning, Frances Fisher revealed in a twitter conversation with Patricia Arquette, that director Joel Souza had been released from the hospital.  Meanwhile, photographs of a distraught Baldwin emerged following the shooting.

The news of the Baldwin prop gun incident, isn’t the first time something like this has happened. Jon-Erik Hexum was killed on October 18, 1984, on the set of the TV show Cover Up when he accidentally shot himself in the head with a gun loaded with blanks. Then, in 1993, Brandon Lee, the son of martial arts legend Bruce Lee, died from a prop gun accident on the set of The Crow by a cast member.

As the news made its way through the entertainment community and mainstream news, several soap stars shared their reactions to the fatal shooting accident.

General Hospital’s Jon Lindstrom (Kevin/Ryan) expressed: “Feeling so sad for everyone involved in the tragedy on the #RustMovie set. I do know the film was staffed with experienced, thoughtful professionals. Please, let’s wait until we have the facts. Nothing positive will come from passing judgement or casting aspersions before then.”

General Hospital and Dynasty’s Emma Samms (Holly, Fallon) shared on her friend Jon-Erik Hexum’s death: This AWFUL tragedy on #Rust is unfathomable to me. If all on-set protocols were being adhered to, how, on earth, could it have happened? After what happened to Brandon Lee and my dear friend Jon-Erik Hexam, the firearm protocols became incredibly strict. I was told (when I was with him at the hospital afterwards) that Jon-Erik had been working with a completely empty gun all morning. A blank (still very dangerous) was loaded and then immediately there was a delay. Exhausted, he was allowed to fall asleep – loaded gun in hand. hey woke him, but there was immediately another delay. Jon-Erik put the gun to his head, forgetting it now contained a blank, (because he had just woken up) and jokingly pulled the trigger. He was not the kind of person to play around with a loaded gun. #fortherecord”

We will continue to post reactions and update this story.

What are your thoughts on the fatal shooting on the set of Rust? Comment below.  How can this not happen again, so everyone is safe in this working environment when ‘dangerous’ props are called for or used to make a movie or a TV show?

Courtney Hope Gets Marriage Advice From Her Y&R Co-Stars Ahead of Her Wedding to GH’s Chad Duell

This weekend, The Young and the Restless Courtney Hope (Sally), is set to walk down the aisle and marry the love of her life, General Hospital’s Chad Duell (Michael).  The nuptials are to take place this Saturday, October 23rd according to the wedding planner Zola.

Ahead of the popular soap duo’s vows, Courtney asked some of her Y&R co-stars advice, but as their characters in a very cute Instagram video on The Young and the Restless IG account with the accompanying text: “Marriage advice you don’t normally hear… as told by the #YR stars 😉 A special thank you to our real-life bride-to-be @TheCourtneyHope for asking! 😂”

Participating are: Peter Bergman (Jack), Amelia Heinle (Victoria), Michelle Stafford (Phyllis), Mishael Morgan (Amanda), Christian LeBlanc (Michael, Eileen Davidson (Ashley), Elizabeth Hendrickson (Chloe), and Christel Khalil (Lily).

In terms of advice, Amelie Heinle told Hope, “As Victoria Newman, I would say that you need to marry a man that is not going to be around for very long, and especially if he has a lot of money.”

Christel Khalil offered up some Lily marital suggestions: “Don’t let your husband let you think that he’s dead and that you’ve slept with a ghost!”

As for Courtney and Chad, the couple had been dating for five years, and this past Valentine’s Day, they became engaged.

Please share your well-wishes to Courtney and Chad as they embark on their life together via the comment section below, and let us know what you think of the marital advice given to Hope from the citizens of Genoa City.  

You can check out the video below, and then take a look back at our interview with the duo on the red carpet back at the 46th annual Daytime Emmys Awards.
