Ew, why? Stop trying to trash up our soaps. No wonder the industry doesn’t take soap actors seriously.

Seriously? Soap actors NEVER were taken seriously, going all the way back to the 60s. It has nothing to do with a reality star making one guest appearance. Give me a break.

A Kardashian was on OLTl and was terrible…reality stars are all terrible!!!

The good thing about reality stars is they make soap stars look like they are Shakespearean trained (which some are).

Cast Kris Kardashian as Dina Abbott, that would be terrific. I adore Kris she is a terrific business woman. Her acting could be good, she will have scenes with Eileen Davidson, Peter Bergman and Beth Maitland. Imagine the fireworks lol.

hi CC …
well, Y&R needs some trash LOL
It would be great if she came to Y&R to be in the research lab of the hospital with a flesh eating venereal disease ahaaa!
and stitch could save her.

Alan

The only way I would be interested in her appearance is if she took Stitch with her on her way out of town…

Celia

Now, su….that’s funny. Good one.
We don’t need the soaps to give us laughs, SuzieQ. We’ve got you!!!!
Stitch? I doubt he knows the difference between a suture and a stitch. Ha!!

Addison

Wait a minute, Alan. You mean you do not find the naval gazing contest which is transpiring between Stitch and Abby to be utterly fascinating?

I remember the day when soaps hired professional trained actors…New York soaps often got good actors from the stage…todays soaps are a joke when it comes to casting and no one is laughing-or watching like they used to-guess ill go watch Manniquin-by the way many of todays actors would make great window displays as manniquins!!!

Unfortunately Jim, so true. Remember the cast from Ryan’s Hope, Edge of Night , heck, as you said all the New York based soaps!

Instead of giving us a worn down alcoholic whatever they could give us the Chippendales!!
12 physically perfect male struttin their stuff would be the correct way to entertain.

((I should be running the soaps! I would not bore you with old housewives showing off all their plastic surgeries but with Magic Mike !
I would rock it with interesting stuff!

I just wish Stitch had turned out to be the Newman leak.
Then we could change his nickname to Snitch!

I think this will be a fun experience. Y&R has had many different people make guest appearances on the show. Victor had that football player on the show as one of the spokespeople for his event in Newman Towers. Ashley deserves a little of the same. I like Erika Jayne Girardi. She gets looked at negatively because of her images in videos but from the scenes I have watched her in on the Real Housewives franchise she is one smart cookie with confidence. Love it, can’t wait.

Addison

I would be more excited to learn that Ashely was going to get a new love interest in order to make her a more interesting and viable character on this daytime drama.
How many times must we endure Ashley butting into her two brothers’ business because she has no life of her own? The pathetic thing is one brother is pushing forty while the other is pushing sixty–her acting like their over bearing mother is wince inducing to say the least.

Celia
Celia

Actually the ‘other’ brother is well over sixty. Ashley is pushing sixty. He is a grandpapa…..Keemo must have kids, somewhere in Nowhereland.
Shameful how she has no storyline of which to speak.
I love Eileen/Ashley. She is just hanging on, bounced around and made to look like Auntie Em.

Addison
Addison

True, Peter Bergman is well into his sixties but I am pretty sure he is playing a man in his fifties.
In any case, both Jack and Billy really do not need Ashely to play mother hen at their ages. I fully expect Ashely to ground both of them while depriving them of their cell phones.

TAKE THE TRASH OUT OF GC!!!!

Ugh.

Gimmicky appearances like these take you right out of the story. The only good guest stars on soaps have been the ones with real acting experience who have committed to an actual arc or recurring character (Arlene Dahl as Lucinda King on OLTL; Barbara Rush as Nola Orsini on AMC; Donna Mills as Madeline Reeves on GH; Dorothy Maguire as Cora Miller on Y&R; Farley Granger as Earl Mitchell on ATWT; and Ava Gardner as Ruth Galveston on KNOTS LANDING).

Jussie Smollett Scenes Cut From ‘Empire’ In Light Of Attack Investigation

As of Tuesday, the production of Fox’s hit series, Empire has slashed Jussie Smollett’s upcoming scenes following reports that the suspicion is now on him for allegedly staging the “hate” attack he reported to the Chicago PD back on January 29th.

According to production sources viaTMZ: Jussie was supposed to have nine scenes and a big musical performance in the second-to-last episode of Season 5,  Now, five scenes and the musical number have been axed.  Smollett’s character is also no longer the focus of his remaining four scenes, which will now feature an ensemble of characters.

The actor/singer who portrays Jamal Lyon will be working Friday and possibly Thursday but won’t be rehearsing.

The Empire writers are said to have been scrambling over the last 24 hours to revise this season’s scripts.

All of this despite despite strongly expressed renewed support by Empire showrunner Brett Mahoney on February 17th.  The goal now is said to be to reduce Smollett’s role both in dramatic stints and musical performances.

Empire returns for the remainder of its fifth season on March 13.

Smollett claims he was the victim of a racist and homophobic attack near his Chicago apartment, but things took a turn when he may have paid two friends to help stage the assault.

This case is said to be going before a Grand Jury as early as today.

What are your thoughts on the latest developments in the Smollett case and Empire reducing his appearances for the remainder of the season? Comment below.

TODAY: Y&R’s Melody Thomas Scott Visits ‘The Talk’ As Her 40th Anniversary Week As Nikki Newman Kicks-Off

On today’s broadcast of the CBS afternoon series, The Talk, the ladies welcome Y&R icon, Melody Thomas Scott, who this week celebrates her incredible 40th anniversary with the show as Nikki Newman.

During her segment, Melody chats on Wednesday’s upcoming standalone episode where Nikki is in jail reflecting on her life.  Wednesday is also the exact date of Thomas Scott’s 40th anniversary with the CBS Daytime drama series.

During the segment Melody fills the ladies in on the “All About Nikki” episode, as she relates:  “I was so thrilled that they did this. It’s truly, really the life of Nikki in the entirety of the episode. It’s all about Nikki. And she’s in jail. She’s writing a letter to her grandchildren so that she can explain who she really is, how she got to where she is.  I have to narrate it, I’ve got a voice-over, a long voice-over. And then, as I’m thinking about all these different times in my life, I can’t believe I’m referring to me as her, her life, then we see the flashbacks. And for the longtime viewers, even current viewers, it is such a trip down memory lane. I mean, you are on that train and you’re not getting off…all of the clips have not been seen since they were first aired.”

In addition, Melody addresses the passing of her longtime co-star and friend, Kristoff St. John relating:  “I adored him. We all adored him. There was something very unique and magical about him. He would just draw you into his wonderful world. And all of his bear hugs, I can’t believe I’ll never get a bear hug. Going to any kind of event, any party, the first thing I said when I got there was ‘Where’s Kristoff?’ I want to find Kristoff, I want to be with him, I want to be in his air space. Because that’s the kind of guy he was, and I think that came through on camera. I think everybody sensed that, I mean everybody adored him.”

So, will you be checking out Melody on today’s episode of The Talk (2PMEST and 1PM PST) today? Comment below.
