Hard to believe Turkey Day is almost upon us, and the CBS Daytime soaps will certainly have some dysfunctional Thanksgiving familial dinners with all the trimmings!

On The Young and the Restless, Thanksgiving comes to Genoa City on the Wednesday, November 26th episode when  Victor Newman (Eric Braden) and Nikki Newman (Melody Thomas Scott) host Thanksgiving dinner for friends, family and a few unexpected guests at the Newman Ranch.  Meanwhile, the rest of the Newman family are at an  important crossroads as Nicholas Newman (Joshua Morrow) finds himself in a life altering predicament,  Victoria Newman (Amelia Heinle) decides to find out who her baby’s father is and Adam Newman (Justin Hartley) prepares to reclaim his life under a new identity.  Across town, Jack Abbott (Peter Bergman) and his fiancée Phyllis Newman (Gina Tognoni) spend Thanksgiving making up for lost time after she spent the last year in a coma.  Will Phyllis finally get the happy ending she’s been waiting for?

On The Bold and the Beautiful look for the Wednesday November 26th episode to brings the Forresters, Logans and Spencers together at the Forrester Mansion for a Thanksgiving Day filled with food, forgiveness and gratitude on Pam Douglas (Alley Mills) and Charlie Baker (Dick Christie) prepare the perfect meal for the group and as everyone settles in, Hope Logan (Kim Matula) announces that they will be continuing the tradition of putting their conflict aside, whether it is in love, business or family, she implores them to say something kind to the person next to them. For a moment in time it seems that all is right in the world, but for two people, we see that the feelings that they have for each other are still undeniable.

So how do you think these families Thanksgiving gatherings will go down? What would you like to see happen?  Food fights? Smooches? Revelations? Comment below!

On B&B, I’ll love Thanksgiving if Caroline and Ridge are fighting their feelings for each other. They have amazing chemistry.

Y&R is on a good run right now with their stories…LOVE Phyllis…she is as fierce as ever… this Kelly is no match for her in any way! Love lives are turned upside down….we will see how that plays out over the next few months… Honestly…. I could not care less about B&B as they have killed the show for me. Wyatt and Quinn are at least interesting to watch. Hope turns my stomach…not sure what the intent is on the part of the writers but I get why the actress has thrown in the towel. Ridge and Caroline are just… Read more »

Gloria is a trip, for sure. She’s one of the best out there in soapland.
The most significant surprise in Genoa City for Thanksgiving? Methinks Sharon is pregnant.

Last years B&B thanksgiving episode was just incredible heather tom just nailed it and I’m not a big fan of hers at least not until then. It was like you were really sitting at table with them.
Just incredible.

I honestly would like to see one day of peace, because they spend the majority of the year , drowning in drama, so it would be nice to see them thankful for their blessings. I would like to see the Newman’s invite Stitch and Kelly to Thanksgiving and stop calling Stitch a murderer.

I will be thankful if on the actual Thanksgiving holiday Y&R showed one of their classic shows– it is always a treat to see an episode from ten or so years ago– one that might have Jeanne Cooper in it– those classic shows are usually far better than anything they are doing right now—

As for B&B I usually skip their Thanksgiving episode– a bunch of dysfunctional people getting together pretending for one day to get along, while behind the scenes there is nothing but drama– reminds me too much of my family during the holidays– LOL.

I hope someone throws the turkey at Nick. He’s nothing but a spoiled little brat acting like his daddy. As for Summers daddy when she finally found out she went to his place (tack-house) hugged him and left. Wow she really is in misery. Does anyone out there remember the Christmas’s at the ranch? The beautiful tree & Victor always arranged a sleigh ride. The Abbott’s had a beautiful tree in their living room & they all got together it was just beautiful. Maybe we’ll get lucky and Nick & Avery will get back together for Christmas and take Summer… Read more »

BTW Nick your darling little daughter is alive because of Sharon. Sharon found her at the bottom of the stairs & called the ambulance. Sharon also saved her sorry butt when she was freezing modelling & had the camera fellow fired. It was Sharon’s idea to have Summer in her wedding. So think about that before your next temper tantrum. I want to see Sharon with Dylan but only after Nick begs Sharon to come back to him.

I do agree with you, Nikki. However, Nick is lashing out because he is hurt. He feels that he has been duped…hard pill for a man with pride to swallow.
I think he still loves Sharon, but because of his anger, he is blind to that fact.
But, that’s neither here nor there…I just can’t stand it when Nick, among many others, act holier-than-thou, or call the kettle black. Every character has done something unimaginable and despicable….so, Nick should look in the mirror before pointing fingers.

Nick has been the trigger of many of Sharon’s eposodes..

Sharon was the one who did help Summer and the other models, they were being abused ,Sharon stopped it ,than became their advocate,Sharon cared ,it wasn’t that she wanted to be rid of Summer ,she just wanted it to be like it was before Cassie died and before Phylass seduced Nick.when she needed him when Cassie died,

I wish the writers could come up with a better storyline for Niki rather than she drinks-she’s on the wagon – she’s drinking again – she’s on the wagon again – she’s drinking again . . . Good Grief – Get that woman a job! Victor’s just plain Victor can’t live with him but harder without him. Chelsea is great! Victoria is carrying this thing with two daddies a tad to far. PICK ONE ALREADY! And for crying out loud get Adam back there. The writers should tune into General Hospital and see how to move a story along. I… Read more »

All My Children and Guiding Light Vet, Gil Rogers Passes Away

Gil Rogers, who played one of the all-time most dastardly villains in soaps on All My Children and was the on-screen father to the one and only Reva Shayne (Kim Zimmer) on Guiding Light, has died at age 87.

News came via his daughter, Amanda Rogers on her Facebook page, relating that Gil passed away on March 2nd.

The actor had played Tad (Michael E. Knight) and Jenny’s (Kim Delaney) father, Ray Gardner on All My Children from 1977-1978 making multiple appearance though 2001, then later as Hawk Shayne on Guiding Light from 1985-1992 making multiple appearance through 2009.

Gil also appeared on Another World, Search for Tomorrow and The Doctors.

In her post, Amanda wrote: “Gil Rogers died this morning. As you all know, my dad was awesome. He was my best friend, confidant, mentor and just an awesome dad. He came to pick me and  Charlotte Whitaker Zdanowski up at clubs at 2AM in our teens to keep us safe, and drank bourbon with me every day since moving out here 2 years ago. He was welcoming and kind, funny and gregarious, a shameless flirt and a fierce protector. He loved his dinners with grandkids and endured animated movies and discussions about pokemon. And I miss him so terribly already. He died in his sleep, without pain or fear. I am so grateful to have had such a great father and to have spent these past 2 years with him every day.”

Check out this vintage scene below from All My Children where Ray played by Rogers blows up the Martin house.

Now share your remembrances of Gil’s performances and along with condolences for his family in the comment section.

Chris Harrison In First Interview Since ‘Bachelor’ Controversy Says He Wants To Be Back as Host; But GMA’s Michael Strahan Says Apology was a “Surface Response”

Thursday’s Good Morning America featured the highly-publicized first interview with ‘Bachelor’ franchise host and executive producer, Chris Harrison, since he stepped away from the show following his controversial remarks on current Bachelor contestant Rachel Kirkconnell, amid the airing of a season that has seen the first-ever Black male lead of the reality series, Matt James.

Speaking with GMA co-host, Michael Strahan, Harrison spoke of remarks he made during his interview with ex-Bachelorette Rachel Lindsay on Extra that sparked the firestorm.

Harrison admitted the words he spoke to Lindsey were “in a manner that perpetuates racism,” adding “I am an imperfect man I made a mistake and I own that. I believe that mistake doesn’t reflect who I am or what I stand for.”

 

The incident began when photos surfaced on social media of Kirkconnell at an Old South-themed party that she attended back in 2018, along with allegations she “liked” many Instagram posts that were racist in nature, and what many viewed as Harrison coming to her defense in this time of what he then called “cancel culture”.

On GMA, Chris expressed: “Antebellum parties are not OK,  Past, present, future, knowing what that represents is unacceptable.”

He also apologized to Lindsay, who had to shut down her Instagram account because of viral vitriol being sent her way over the incident with Harrison, adding this message to the public, “Anyone who is throwing hate towards Rachel Lindsay, please stop. It’s unacceptable.”

As to how he is trying to make amends, Harrison shared: “I made a mistake and I own that, Racism, oppression, these are big dynamic problems and they take serious work. I am committed to that work.”  The longtime Bachelor host then announced he is working with race educator Dr. Eric Dyson who has taught him about the idea of “counsel, not cancel”.

Chris says he plans to be back hosting the reality-dating series, expressing:  “I plan to be back. I want to be back.  This interview is not the finish line. There is much more work to be done.”

Following the exclusive, Michael Strahan described his conversation with Chris Harrison stating: “His apology is his apology, but it felt like it got nothing more than a surface response on any of this. Obviously, he is the man who wants to clearly stay on the show, but only time will tell if there is any meaning behind his words.”

So, what do you think of Chris Harrison’s responses during his first interview since the controversy? Should he return to hosting The Bachelor franchise? Comment below. But first check out his GMA exclusive.

GH’s Wes Ramsey Makes Statement on Criticism, Social Media, and Professionalism

General Hospital’s Wes Ramsey, who portrays polarizing character, Peter August on the ABC daytime drama series, responded to a recent take on his role from cast mate, Tristan Rogers (Scorpio) when a video made its way through social media.

The video was from a Cameo appearance, where Rogers offered an assessment of the Peter August storyline and expressed that while he knows Ramsey is a strong actor, he felt he was “wrong for the character” being that Peter was the son of the evil Faison played by Anders Hove.

Rogers also came to the defense of Ramsey and shared: “Don’t be too hard on Wes Ramsey. He’s got himself into a horrible storyline, and the storyline is the fault of the show. What they’ve literally done is they’ve painted themselves into a corner, and they don’t know how to get out of it.”

Currently, Peter’s story is front and center on GH with his wedding to Maxie (Kirsten Storms), and the fallout from all of the character’s dirty deeds.

Now Ramsey took to his Instagram account to address what transpired and his thoughts on the perils of social media, professionalism and acting, expressing: “Actors are storytellers, shapeshifters, chameleons. We’re also in the business of cultivating trust bc that’s how the best work is brought to life. We have to trust our imaginations, our instincts. We have to trust our fellow actors, because without them, there’s no scene to play. In the collaborative efforts of bringing any show to life, we also have to trust our directors each day to steer the arch of our story (like a conductor with a symphony) & trust our writers who are tasked with composing the symphonies we play out. I came up in a world of classical theater, where trusting the play, text, story is essential to the tightrope balancing act of making magic.  You will never hear me critique (on any public platform) the people responsible for the creative opportunities I enjoy each day. Without the trust of my writers, directors, producers & fellow actors, it would be impossible to live out my dreams. My job (& my only job) is to bring fearlessness, playfulness & passionate conviction to what has been created for me. My aim is to stretch myself (beyond the limits of where I think my boundaries may lye) each time I’m entrusted with material that allows those boundaries to be tested.

 

Every actor must believe they are the right person for their part or they will never achieve their potential, let alone surpass it. I was raised a gentleman & have two wonderful parents to thank for that, however, my polite personality (while rendering me easy to get along with on set) should have little bearing on my caliber of performance nor my castability as a professional.  I am leery of the pitfalls of social media & believe there are advantages to maintaining some mystery (even as a public figure) but I will always defend & protect what I hold dear (my job & my career) when they are publicly challenged, especially by those closest to me, whom I love & respect. Please know I bear no ill will. As a society, we are all still learning the full ramifications of living in an internet dominated culture. To all my many fans out there who offer encouragement & support, I hear you & am grateful for you. I’m having a blast… 🙂. Onward we go.”
