jpi_dusay101608_25521.jpgGuiding Light’s incredible Marj Dusay (Alexandra Spaulding) posted a very touching, moving and gracious note to her facebook fan page this weekend, after the final statement made by Telenext that Guiding Light will not find another home.  On-Air On-Soaps wants to share this with all soap fans and those who will hold “GL” close to their hearts forever! We Love You Marj!

STATEMENT FROM MARJ DUSAY TO HER FANS:
“WELL, WHAT CAN I SAY. THE ENDING OF A CLASSIC AND HISTORICAL SOAP OPERA, OUR
GUIDING LIGHT. IT’S INCREDIBLY EMOTIONAL FOR ALL OF US WHO HAVE BEEN INVOLVED.
WE’RE AWARE OF THE PLACE IT HAS HAD IN MANY OF YOUR HEARTS OVER THE YEARS.

WE WILL BE SHOOTING OUR LAST EPISODES WITHIN THE NEXT TWO WEEKS. I’M HOPING THAT
OUR AUDIENCE WILL PAY CLOSE ATTENTION TO THE FINAL WEEKS OF THE SHOW. I PROMISE
YOU IT WILL BE EXTREMELY TOUCHING, AND I THINK SOMETHING THAT WE CAN ALL BE
PROUD TO HAVE BEEN A PART OF.

SAYING GOOD-BYE TO THE CAST, PRODUCTION CREW AND ALL THE PEOPLE THAT MAKE A SOAP
WORK HAS BEEN A BITTER PILL TO SWALLOW. WE WERE, TRULY, FAMILY. MY ALAN, MY
PHILIP, MY BUZZ, ETC.– HAVE ALL GIVEN ME WONDERFUL MOMENTS AS PARTNERS IN
ACTING. I COULDN’T HAVE WISHED FOR MORE.

I HAVE BEEN EXTREMELY LUCKY TO PLAY A CHARACTER LIKE ALEXANDRA, WHO I ALWAYS
BELIEVED TO BE VERY INTELLIGENT AND WISE, WHILE RETAINING A CHILDLIKE QUALITY.
UNPREDICTABLE.
I PARTICULARLY LIKED SOME OF THE OUTLANDISH, OVER-THE-TOP THINGS SHE HAS DONE, I
HOPED, ALWAYS SHOWING HER DEPTH OF HEART AND LOVE AND CONCERN.

I THOUGHT IT WAS IMPORTANT THAT ALEX BE SHOWN AS AN EXAMPLE OF A WOMAN WHO HAD
EVERYTHING, BUT WAS ANYTHING BUT PERFECT. WHEN YOU THINK SOMEONE HAS EVERYTHING,
REMEMBER– THERE’S AN UNDERBELLY OF SECRETS THAT ONE HIDES: INSECURITY,
JEALOUSY, ANGER, AND ANY OTHER HUMAN FLAWS YOU CAN THINK OF. LOVE CAN CONQUER OR
DESTROY, YOU CAN ONLY KNOW ANOTHER HUMAN BEING SO WELL.

I JUST WANT TO SAY THANK YOU– AGAIN– TO ALL OF YOU WHO HAVE BEEN SO KIND TO ME
OVER THE YEARS. YOU WILL NEVER KNOW HOW MUCH I APPRECIATE IT.

SO, WISHING YOU ALL LOVE, HAPPINESS, PEACE, UNDERSTANDING, FREEDOM, FURS,
CHOCOLATE, JET PLANES, DIAMOND RINGS, CHEESEBURGERS, FRIED CHICKEN, HOT COCOA,
VANILLA ICE CREAM, ETC., ETC.

ENOUGH SAID.

LOVE YA,

MARJ”

Crystal Hunt and Donna Mills Headline New PureFlix Streaming Comedy Series, ‘Mood Swings’

Four generations of women are thrown together by circumstance to live under one roof and survive in Los Angeles in the new comedy series Mood Swings set to kick-off on October 24th on streaming service Pure Flix (www.PureFlix.com). New episodes will be released every Thursday for eight weeks.

Some very notable soap opera faces are featured in the cast.  Chief among them is former OLTL and GL star, Crystal Hunt, who also serves as the creator and executive producer of the comedy.

In addition to Hunt, none other than Knots Landing and General Hospital favorite, Donna Mills is along for the comedy ride as Hunt’s mother.. Hunt and Mills first worked together on the defunct reality series, Queens of Drama.

Joining Hunt and Mills and rounding out the cast are: Robin Riker (Ex-B&B and GH), Sophia Gasca (Ballers), Christina DeRosa (Bad Moms), Scott Bailey (Ex -GL and currently, The Bay,) and Jason Earles (Hannah Montana).  Plus, Dyan Cannon plays Hunt’s aunt in Mood Swings.

According to the loglines for the series: “Newly divorced from her mega-successful, controlling and philandering husband Jonathan (Bailey), Farrah (Hunt) is awarded the couple’s Malibu mansion along with an enormous mortgage and minimal financial support to take care of herself and 8-year-old son Ryder. Recognizing she needs an income, yet having no work experience whatsoever, Farah decides to rent out rooms in her house in order to pay the bills. After placing an ad on Craigslist for female roommates, enter Coco (Riker), a disgruntled working woman; Dani (DeRosa), a fiery Canadian-Italian culinary wizard and hopeful Hollywood actress; and Emilia (Gasca), an enigmatic Dominican entrepreneur trying to get U.S. citizenship.  Farrah’s live-in not-so-handy handyman Angel (Earles) adds even more comedic moments to the show as he both struggles and enjoys being the only adult male in the household. While all the women come from different backgrounds and generations, they are brought together by unforeseen circumstances and what ensues is a wild and hysterical ride full of laughs.”

In a statement on the launch of the streaming series, Hunt expressed: “We felt there was a need for a great female ensemble comedy.  Right now, you can only watch reruns of shows like ‘Golden Girls’ and ‘Designing Women’ to enjoy a female-driven show. Our thinking was to embrace the legacy of these programs while adding a modern twist.”

Look for new episodes of Mood Swings to be released every Thursday for eight weeks starting with the October 24th debut. And, check out the trailer for the series below.
