And with that, ends the run of Hayley Erin, who took over the role of Kiki from Kristen Alderson in 2013 and made it her own.  She received a Daytime-Emmy nomination for her performances earlier this year.

In a heartfelt message to her fans and GH co-workers, Hayley posted: “RIP Keeks. Much love to my family, I’ll miss you guys. Thank you for this wonderful, wild ride in daytime. I’ll always be grateful to the fans who embraced Kiki through the years, my life wouldn’t be nearly this beautiful without your constant love and support XO”

Erin’s on-screen mother, Maura West (Ava) tweeted back: “I love you, Hayley. And you are stuck with me…cuz once you’re my fake tv daughter…you’re my family forever and for real. we will continue to watch you sparkle!!”

As viewers know, Hayley is set to appear in the new Pretty Little Liars spin-off, The Perfectionists.

I was hoping it wasn’t her because I was hoping she’d be Nina’s real daughter. Hayley did a fantastic job over the past five years. She’ll be missed. Good luck.

While it is sad that TPTB decided to “kill off” Kiki Jerome, I know that the fallout will have long-standing rippling effects on the canvas for a while, so I look forward to the performances by those involved in the character’s orbit. As for Ms. Erin, I want to say thank you for stepping into a role and making it your complete on. I knew you as Abby on The Young and the Restless, and felt you the right person to take over the role of Kiki. I am wishing you the best on your primetime ventures, and hope to one day see you ghosting it up in Port Charles once again!

Hahaha; I totally agree. She was as smug and self-righteous as Carly. Haley did a great job but I hated Kiki.

i’m just Leary @all the desecrate … of character… or lack of

Maura West Ava… yeah, her past is mob oriented; yeah, she can be a bitch… yeah, she’s done , for story sake given us time and again.. her work.

yet this time around… even I am taken aback at just how MEAN.. she’s acting.. just to be ???? she seriously cannot fathom that SHE slept with Morgan… AND Kiki cannot ? COME ON ! this is retread… even Maura West must be stupefied… because Ava would NEVER treat her own daughter this way.

even if it is a little too late… this was one of the BEST single mother and fighting chance daughter Kiki. loved these two to bits . so this is going to be searing to see Ava deal with how hurtful she didn’t have to be.

STAT : ???? it’s just so lame.. how every story has to surface in and around the Corinthos’ dullard. case in point : WE all knew , it would be Josslyn to bring Oscar around. GAVEL

JUST WHY ??? did Billy Miller ‘ Drew .. HAVE TO go to the Corinthos manse to thank Josslyn in person ????? !!!! WACK JOB… Shelly and Chris you two are meaningless. of course this was done to PROP … WAS DONE TO PROP.. the boring Corinthos family.

ALL it had to take… later in the ep… seeing Josslyn heart and eyes light up .. when she saw Oscar name flash on her phone… Yeah, I leapt with. that was endearing…

it’s just lame how all the “points” of story.. are added to give Sonny and Carly “leverage” with NO “Meaning”

My Kiki .. my dear… Godspeed; be well ; take care; and go with… whatever this flight in this “profession”

argh! one more flying

Patrick
Patrick

it’s just so dumb idiotic… that it leaves the impression that Billy Miller’ Drew is “now” indebted to the Corinthos’.. because of Josslyn GOOD WILL ? Puke

same case is with Laura… she will be indebted to Carly .. because wah blah blah.. every one is on the case to HELP CARLY. doesn’t matter that Felicia is unaware.. and the better actress… doesn’t matter that Ava is once again hitting bottom… AND is the better actress…

Laura Wright is sitting atop the heap… w/ Maurice Benard.. w Chad Duell… GOD Frank VAlentini.. I am waiting for you to be FIRED

Hayley has grown SO much as an actress!! Starting out under Ron Catlivati’s pen does no favours to any young performer! But after he was mercifully fired…she blossomed!! She became Kiki!! It is a sad and brutal end….but in order for the Ryan story to have merit and gravitas….someone meaningful had to die. Her death is powerful and will give Maura West story to play for years!! I want FRONT ROW TICKETS for the day Ava learns that Ryan killed Kiki! She will demolish him!!!! I also hope Carly and Ava somehow bond over this!!

Hate Carly. I wouldn’t be surprised if down the line she blames Ava for Kiki’s death, too.

Instead, she should be thinking about how she had been torturing AJ for years, how her husband killed him and how she covered it up. Then she should get down on her hands and knees and beg Monica for all the years she tortured HER son. The pity party over Morgan has gone on long enough.

Haley Erin grew so much as an actress during her time on the show. If this happened 2 years ago, I wouldn’t have cared as much as it happened now. Break a leg, HE!

A side note on serial killers in PC. Poor Dillon Quartermaine. His first love and his cousin are murdered by one serial killer. His father is later revealed to be one (dumb writing). And now another love, another victim. Only in a soap opera, could this happen to one person!

Satan

You could say the same thing for Dillon’s cousin Michael. Paul (Dillon’s dad) killed his girlfriend Cinderbrina, and Michael was also involved with Kiki for a while. And Michael nearly avoided being a victim of Psycho Nelle himself (her previous boyfriend wasn’t so lucky).

Yet still, he manages to idolize Sonny who is responsible for killing others, including AJ, his own father. No sympathy for Michael..

Emmy Winner and Noted Soap Opera Head Writer; Hogan Sheffer Passes Away At 61

Over the last several hours, reports have broke that one of daytime’s most notable scribes has died.  Hogan Sheffer, who was head writer at As the World Turns, Days of our Lives and The Young and the Restless has passed away at the age of 61.

Soap Hub, first reported the news via multiple sources, however, many writers who worked with Hogan during his tenure on the soaps have taken to social media to share their condolences and their grief and remembrances.

Sheffer’s appearance on the soap scene was unexpected, especially in a genre where it is often rare for new blood to take the reins at the head writer position.  Proctor & Gamble had decided to bring in Hogan after his work as the Director of Screenplay Development for DreamWorks, not because of his writing credits for a previous network soap.  He was given trial deal as a breakdown writer for the CBS soap and 10-weeks in became the beloved town of Oakdale’s new head writer.

Hogan and his then writing team were able to turn the classic, As the World Turns around.  The show went up in the ratings and during his time with the series ‘World Turn’s’ won two Daytime Emmys for Outstanding Drama Series, and he and the writing team picked up four Emmy victories all through 2000-2004.

Next, Sheffer landed in Salem as head writer of Days of our Lives along with Meg Kelly from 2006 through to the beginning of 2008.   He would later join The Young and the Restless and team up with then head writers: Maria Arena Bell and Scott Hamner, and eventually stay with the show till 2012.  During Sheffer’s time in Genoa City, Y&R also won a Daytime Emmy for Outstanding Writing in 2011.

On Sunday, former WWE and daytime writer Tom Casiello, who was extremely close with Sheffer…  and who shared how Hogan gave him his start at writing in daytime, took to his Facebook page to pay tribute to a man who had such an impact on his life and many others.  It is worth the read here. 

Y&R writer, Sara Bibel tweeted: “Hogan Sheffer was a gamechanger for ATWT and daytime. Everyone I know who worked with him adored him. RIP”

And, iconic ATWT star, Martha Byrne (Ex-Lily) tweeted on Sheffer’s passing: “To say he was one of a kind would be a tremendous understatement. Our years at ATWT with Hogan at the helm were a rebirth for our beautiful show. Loved his writers, actors,crew. Blessed to have him on the first floor in Brooklyn ready to listen. Talented. Funny. Generous. RIP”

Colleen Zenk (Ex-Barbara, ATWT) also took to Twitter upon learning of the passing of Sheffer sharing: “I loved him, loved him, loved him… he was so good to me. Thank you for everything, Hogan. You were so loved. Especially, by me… Rest in peace…”

Michael Fairman TV will continue to bring you updates as the soap world mourns the loss of a creative force in our genre.  Share your condolences and thoughts on the death of Hogan Sheffer via the comment section below.
