Why is Beth Ehlers NOT doing this? Many miss her and she was my favorite on GL – please find her and put her on, she’s made GL shine, awesome actress and she is missed. WE WANT BETH EHLERS 🙂

Me too!! Would love to see her again. But as a longtime Beth Ehlers’ fan I think we’ll be out of luck. I’m sure she won’t want to do this..lol

I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again: It’s so weird how soap sites put “Ex-” before character names on shows that are cancelled. The show isn’t on the air, so we understand everybody is an ex-, lol. There’s just no reason to do it that way! Also, to answer the above question, it seems these reunions for GL and ATWT are grouped by people who are friendly with each other, which makes sense to have a good and interesting conversation. Maybe Mr. Locher just hasn’t had time to assemble a group of folks friendly with Beth Ehlers yet…… Read more »

Interesting reply, so your stating that many were not friendly with Ehlers? If so how would you know this information, Ehlers was on the show for many years so apparently she was liked 🙂

I was on the crew of GL… Beth Ehlers was not liked at all.

You were not on the crew. Beth Ehlers was beloved by the crew. She never caused any problems like Zimmer and the other prima donnas in the cast did. I can list dozens of crew members she is still friends with to this day.

That’s not true! I worked very closely with Beth and she was well liked. She is a smart woman and holds her own. Unfortunately, a strong woman is treated differently than men. Every actor or actress on GL had challenging moments…some were good…some were bad. But its not fair for you to make this comment

Kimmy

Hmm…did she hurt your ego or something Me think Peter is lying. Or maybe the people who said they liked her are lying? But I guess it doesn’t really matter because she’s obviously very loved and missed by her fans and apparently her haters can’t stop caring either so that pretty much implies she’s still popular. Hey mister/ma’am, we may never see her again so let her fan have their lovefest. Thanks so kindly

I personally had no issue with hey but sadly many of her co-workers did not like her. You can say i am lying, i don’t really care (why would I) but it’s true. She was not liked.

Kimmy

Dear Peter, the truth is that if you didn’t have a personal issue with her and you actually knew her, you simply wouldn’t of written that comment. You obviously don’t like her (from a distance) so just speak for yourself in full view. If you actually were a coworker (very questionable), your negative comments would say more about you than her. What kind of grown person goes around bashing/gossiping about ex-coworkers (they don’t really know) from 10-15yrs ago? Obviously not a kind and well liked person. Just saying

Last post on this because i find it ridiculous that you say that i did not know her. I was on the crew. Sorry if that makes you mad or jealous. It was not a big deal for me. I did my job. That came with getting to know people, the actors, and yes, some of them would share their feelings. A lot of them did not like the woman. It’s a fact. It’s also an old fact. Who knows ho many bridges were repaired since. During my time, she was not liked and i am not surprised that we… Read more »

Well, I find it ridiculous of you to say that “Beth Ehlers was not liked at all”. That’s manipulating the truth. You obviously were not close to her. She worked there for 20 years. It would have been believable to say during the time I worked there she was gossiped about alot by some people who really disliked her. That’s sad because it’s petty when people try to make coworkers dislike the other for their own personal reasons. Maybe jealousy? As a fan, I’d rather believe flattering comments made in press by her old buddies like RPG, Gina T, Crystal,… Read more »

I didn’t mean to imply that she wasn’t liked… just that the host hadn’t put together the right group with her yet.

Beth Ehlers was the reason most viewers tuned in and the reason the show stayed on the air all of those years. She is the most popular soap star of the past 35 years. Beth Ehlers was beloved by cast and crew. She had no ego, was respected by everyone, and stayed away from backstage drama. It’s not a Guiding Light reunion without her.

Yes Yes Yes, thank Mike- that’s why I turned in she was the light of the show. Great actress, just like Gina Tognoni who was light on many soaps, awesome actress as well. Why Y&R and that Josh Griffith -idiot got rid of her, he is dump butt! Both are missed and should be on soaps now.

Any idea where is Beth?

I’ve always been surprised no one has done a “what are they doing now” feature with Beth Ehlers. After her lackluster role on AMC she just fell off the acting scene. Just have to wonder why and where she is now.

Mike Martin

The role wasn’t lackluster, Chuck Pratt was lackluster. Bad decision to hire him. He wasted Beth. She was supposed to play Liza. After they foolishly fired Brown and Esensten, they brought in career loser Pratt. He changed her role. His whole career was a disaster. Beth was smart in only signing for one year. What a mess she walked into.

She was a child actor so maybe she grew tired of acting for a living. I think she did it for 30yrs. I also don’t think she wanted to move her family to California. Ten years back she had gone back to college and was volunteering as an EMT and rape counselor. I remember reading she was learning to be an EMT while she was still working on GL. I’m guessing she’s either in healthcare or some kind of public service right now. I think the lack of information about her is not due to a lack of interest by… Read more »

Thank you for bringing back the Light! I watched it for nearly 40 years and would love to catch up! Keep it coming and bring this soap back to CBS along with ATWT – 30 minutes each like Bold and Beautiful. Bold is No. 1 in my book. CBS can always replace The Talk.

Love the idea: half hour each for ATWT and GL. Many actors would return, plus they could add new ones. I’ve always liked only giving up 25 minutes of my life for B&B. But Procter and Gamble would have to give up the rights. Not likely. I had stopped buying their products when ATWT went off, but I’ve since forgotten and Dawn is sitting on my kitchen counter!

So greatful for these ATWT and GL reunions, enjoying them immensely! Not to be picky, but I would practically give my right arm for Maeve Kinkead/Kurt McKinney to be included in one of these shows. Anyone have any inside scoop if this is possible??

Great reunion of soap stars! Wish they spoke more about their time and memories on Guiding Light. They all know each other currently (except maybe Daniel) being on General Hospital. And to hear about their current COVID lifestyles would be a nice element too.

The longtime Today Show anchor told staffers she was moving on expressing in a note: “To my Dateline and Today show families, it’s very hard to say goodbye… and we all know in this business it’s never goodbye but see you later. I’m eternally grateful for the support and deep friendships that will remain no matter where our paths lead.  I have so much to be thankful for and for every one of you who helped me get here… muchísimas gracias mis amigos.”

Tom Mazzarelli, the EP of Today also wrote in a note to staff that “Morales been offered an opportunity she’s passionate about and has decided to step away from NBC News after an incredible two-decade career here.”

Soap Veteran Michael Tylo Passes Away at 73

Michael Tylo, well-remembered for his roles on daytime soap operas, has died at the age of 73.  Tylo, was most-loved in his role as Quinton Chamberlain, in the Quint and Nola (Lisa Brown) romance on Guiding Light, as well for his time on The Bold and the Beautiful (Ex-Sherman), All My Children (Ex-Matt), The Young and the Restless (Ex-Rick/Blade), Another World (Ex-Lord Peter Belton), and General Hospital (Ex-Charlie).

Tylo’s death was announced by Nancy Uscher, Dean of College of Fine Arts at the University of Nevada, Las Vegas, where Michael was a film professor.  Michael died on Tuesday at Henderson Hospital in Henderson, Nevada, following an illness.

In a statement on the UNLV website, Uscher said of her colleague: “Michael Tylo was a beautiful and caring human being — he was so special.  He was an exemplary friend, colleague, teacher, and artist. He had such a distinguished and rich career, but he was humble about his accomplishments. He loved his family dearly and lived a joyous life, but he left us way too soon. We will miss him greatly, but feel deep gratitude about all that Michael contributed to the College of Fine Arts, UNLV, and the world.”

Lori Loughlin Returns To Acting; Set To Reprise ‘When Calls The Heart’ Role in GAC Family’s ‘When Hope Calls’

Former Fuller House, Edge of Night, and When Calls the Heart star, Lori Loughlin, has landed her first acting role since jail time and her part in the College Admissions Scandal; where she and her husband, Mossimo Giannulli, paid half a million dollars in bribes to get their two daughters, Olivia Jade and Isabella Rose, accepted into the University of Southern California.

While, Jade is now also in this season’s Dancing with the Stars, now comes word that Loughlin has gotten her first acting gig since all the legal trouble, and while still on probation following her two months in jail.

Look for Lori to reprise her beloved role of Abigail from When Calls the Heart on its season two spin-off on GAC Family, When Hope Calls.

According to Deadline: Loughlin will appear in the two-part Season 2 premiere titled When Hope Calls: A Country Christmas, to air on Saturday, December, 18th.  Lori was last seen on TV as Abigail in Season 6 of Hallmark’s When Calls the Heart before she was let go over her involvement in the college admissions scandal.

Last week, speculation began that Loughlin may be back working after a report surfaced from Mercury News  that she had been granted permission by a Boston federal judge to travel to Canada for about a week in late September-early October for “a filming production project.”

So, what do you think about Lori’s return to acting following serving jail time? Will you be watching her as Abigail on When Hope Calls: A Country Christmas? Comment below.
