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 born when I was, knowing my misbegotten youth is safely tuck away in my memory, and not on Google.

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.

Mary SF
Mary SF

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.

natalie
natalie

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.

Mary SF
Mary SF

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 way you when about it, I even respect your devotion to your soap star and your desire to defend his motives to me. If I was being too cynical, then note taken, but honestly I don’t understand if you are really happy for them why my comment should matter to you or how it ruin anything for anyone.

I am always open to reasonable debate, but I have no patience for the immature argument that says since I don’t like what you said you shouldn’t say it. Trust me, if you silence one person with that lame idea, one day someone will silence you with it—- and if you’re as young as you sound you will learn that the hard way, and if you are old enough to know better than you know what I am saying is true. Take care natalie JT should be honor to have a fan like you, who cares so passionately about him.

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 with them. Whether it was to post the pic publicly and/or just to save for their own memories…who cares?

Don’t you think every interview they do here and everywhere is for publicity? For themselves, for the shows they’re on? EVERY person in the media…who puts themselves in the media…do interviews and take pics and appear on talk shows…either to promote themselves or their project. It’s the name of the game. For you to take such offense seems like it’s the first time you’ve seen a celeb posting…well…anything.

I guess you’ve never been on Twitter. And I’m not telling you to do so…now THAT is the place where these people promote themselves. Almost everyone in the limelight gets on there…gathers up thousands…millions of as many followers as they can…posts pics of everything in their lives…just to further their own names/shows/albums/tours/, etc. It’s transparent…though I’m not sure ALL “fans” realize the motives behind it.

As for this pic of Jason…he’s obviously happy and in love and shared a beautiful moment. Not sure he’s that self-serving that he just didn’t want to share how lucky he feels.

As for responding to you, yes, we’re on a site to express our views. But don’t expect others to not respond not only to what Michael posts, but how others comments make us feel.

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 necessary to find fault in something as simple as a photo? I don’t understand why I can’t just once read some happy news without some negative nellie bitching about something. Don’t you realize when you do that it might spoil the mood for those us who just want to enjoy the moment with all favorite soap star? If I had gotten that reply in my in box instead of one I did, which was full of attitude telling what I cannot or cannot say, I might have gotten her point. I would have been able to hear her, instead of being force to defend myself. I could have taken a moment and thought, wow, was I really being that negative– I thought I was making a general observation, but perhaps that article wasn’t the proper time or place to make it? See it is all so simple. I am just asking people just take a moment to think about what it is they are upset about and what the real issue is and find a respectful, less confrontation way to state it. If you respect me, I will respect. But in the end yes they can respond in any manner they want, but if they do then they should not be shock or surprise if I call them on it, or give as good as I am getting. But I truly wasn’t trying to question JT motives, just thought the picture was too professional looking to be the actual candid shot of the him proposing. Yet, you are right it doesn’t matter it was or it wasn’t. And as I stated in another post a dear friend of mine did explain this new cultural trend to post everything online — so I change my view on it. So I do thank you for respectful comments, and since you too felt my comments were negative. I do get it. In the future before posting I will double check with myself to ask — is this truly the time and place to make this comment. But I am not going to censor what I think or feel, in fear someone might not like it. They are free not to like it, you can tell me you don’t like it and why, but you cannot tell me not to say it.

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 and agreeable, we’d have no show! 😉

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 attack me personally and motivation and then walked away in huff, like a child about to lose a game of checkers who can do nothing but flip the board and say I don’t want to play anymore. I declare myself the winner and you’re the loser. This isn’t about winning or losing, or tit for tat as you called it, it is about understanding. So I will not direct these comments to those who do not wish to understand my point of view, but to do those who might. My original post, wished this couple well. I remarked on the lovely picture and I wondered if it was staged for publicity. Not publicity like Lindsay Lohan, look at me, look at me kind, but as in PR. When a public person posts a picture like that on a public site, for the public, it is in fact a press release— so forgive me for wondering if the photo was the actual moment he proposed or did they recreated it for the press? I admitted I did not know, and then I wondered if that was the actual moment, why a person would chose to share that with strangers? It is a valid question, not an attack on JT. There is a growing trend to share all the details of one life on line, it made me wonder where does one draw the line, and something becomes TMI? Then I ended with a lighthearted comment that I was glad the internet wasn’t around me when I was young because I didn’t want my life to be forever on line. But then a dear friend of mine pointed out to me last night that is exactly why people do it. Before this age, the only people after they died who lives might be recorded and known in the future were only available to a small few, kings, statesmen, artists, like DaVinci, and Mozart. But with the internet, ordinary folks, folks whose lives may have only been known by small few and forgotten in a couple generations after their deaths, can now be preserve in cyberspace for as long as cyberspace exists. My friend told me, if that was the actual moment, then what JT did was no different than what Shakespeare did when he composed a love sonnet for his lady love and then had it published. Now here it is hundreds… Read more »

Short Film ‘She & Her’ Starring GH’s Carolyn Hennesy Has Premiere Screening With Support Of Daytime Community

A very topical short film in the post-Harvey Weinstein scandal and the #MeToo movement made its debut recently.  The film, She & Her directed by General Hospital production associate Nate Hapke, and written and co-produced by Y&R script and story coordinator, Rosie Grace, explores the complicated friendship between three women as they attempt to find their voice and tell their own stories in Hollywood.

The short stars the one and only Carolyn Hennesy (Diane Miller, GH) in the role of Poppy Sinclaire, a jaded ex-actress whose past comes back to haunt her when a young up and comer encourages her to publicly share her story of Hollywood abuse.

Hennesy’s co-stars include: Gwen Hillier who now is in front of the camera after working as a casting associate at GH.  Gwen has appeared on Transparent and Crazy Ex-Girlfriend, and the other part of this trio is Mackenzie Breeden.

During its world premiere of She & Her (March 30th at the Harmony Gold Theatre in Hollywood) The Young and the Restless’ Brytni Sarpy (Elena) and Kate Linder (Esther) were on hand to lend their support; as was former GH star, Chloe Lanier (Ex-Nelle).  (Hapke is pictured below flanked by Lanier and Sarpy).

Following the film’s screening, the cast and crew took to the stage for a Q&A.  The cast was engaged through a lively discussion about the making of  the film, and the ways in which the filmmakers tackled topics such as  sexual assault, without exploiting the sensitive issue..

Following this LA premiere, She & Her will be embarking on its festival run, screening at venues all over the world.

Screenings will be announced on the official She & Her Facebook and  Twitter pages.

The film is the work of P 1 2 3 Productions and Soza Productions.

It’s always refreshing to see those behind the scenes of the soaps, and those in front of the camera, coming together for an artistic project.

So, are you intrigued to see Carolyn and her co-stars in She & Her? Check out the trailer, and let us know via the comment section below.
