Well the Internet was abuzz over the holiday weekend from a tweet by Robin Strasser (Dorian, OLTL) announcing that her last tape date at OLTL will be July 1st, but that the tweet also indicated, that it was also the final tape date for Gina Tognoni as Kelly Cramer!  As many know, Strasser has to exit the series early to have much needed back surgery.

Strasser tweeted, “Have no control over how they’ll write Dorian/Kelly off by July 1- I haven’t had significant story in years-hoping they’ll do D. and K.good.”

So the question is, will Gina be leaving OLTL early to perhaps start a new gig somewhere else?  Remember, Tognoni also left Guiding Light early before its final months of shows.  It would seem perhaps Tognoni and Strasser might pre-tape some scenes that would air closer to the end of the OLTL’s run, but that also remains to be seen.

I really hope not! Gina Tognoni is such an amazing performer! I would much rather see Clint gone than Kelly. Sorry that RS is leaving, but her health must come first, and her fans understand that!

I think if Gina has a chance to keep working, she should take it! She left GL early to go to OLTL but she was in the last show, and she was also doing fan events. Gina is a great person and I applaud her ability to reinvent herself and stay working. As the genre gets smaller, work is going to be harder for daytime vets. Its a sad state of affairs, but in the long run Gina is doing the best she can for herself and her family.

Gee what are they doing with all these wonderful actresses? The shows should give them all ground breaking story’s, but no all they got was weak story what a shame.

That is really too bad she is very good but in light of the bleak future can you blame people for walking-and if in fact it is storyline dictated they are merely cutting costs-I hate what they did to Marty and I hope Robin Strasser is on the mend but frankly what did any of these people get but a swift kick and even as a 40 plus soap fan I hope that OLTL is left with three people Jess Tess and the other mess. Just plain dispictable the whole deal.

Drew Barrymore Daytime Talk Show Pilot In The Works

This fall, new talkers from Tamron Hall and Kelly Clarkson will be part of the daytime television landscape, and now comes word that Drew Barrymore may enter the space with a new talk show for her that is in development with the pilot being shot this coming week.

According to Variety, details of the proposed one-hour show are not all clear, but Drew is said to be one of the executive producers of the pilot episode and yet there is no showrunner attached to the project at this time.  Barrymore’s company, Flower Films is likely attached as well.

Back in 2016, Barrymore had a deal in place with Warner Brothers Telepictures for a talk show, but that never came to pass, in part to a lukewarm response from TV station groups at that time.

However now the new regime at CBS’ syndication arm is said to have ‘high hopes’ for the show and they feel that Drew will appeal and do well in the daytime arena.

Barrymore recently appeared in her third season of  Netflix’s Santa Clarita Diet in its 30 episode season. Through her Flower Films she was been an executive producer on unscripted series including TLC’s Rattled and VH1’s Tough Love.

So, would you be interested. or intrigued to see what kind of show Drew Barrymore has to offer in daytime? Think she would be a good host? Share your thoughts via the comment section below.

The Bold and the Beautiful Ratings Winner With Phoebe is Beth Reveal

Great news for The Bold and the Beautiful and their long-awaited payoff: that the little girl being raised by Steffy (Jacqueline MacInnes Wood) as “Phoebe” is really Liam (Scott Clifton) and Hope’s (Annika Noelle) daughter, Beth, who they believed had died in the long and twisty baby switch storyline.

B&B was the highest rated daytime television show in the key 25-54 womens demo and the first time in the 32-year-old history of the CBS sudser that it has been atop of that demo. That is not only among the network soaps but all series genres in daytime for the week of August 5-9 –  quite the feat.

During the ratings week, Liam figured out that Phoebe was Beth, and eventually after Thomas’ (Matt Atkinson) manipulations told Hope the truth.

All this goes to show that as frustrated as viewers get wanting the truth to come out in a story they follow; when it finally does, they are along for the ride. Something B&B executive producer and head writer, Brad Bell does exceptionally well with big umbrella storylines that hold major ramifications for many on the canvas.

Congrats to Brad and the B&B team!

So, what do you think of BOLD’s performance in the ratings for the big week in story? Comment below

Kelly Monaco Addresses Billy Miller’s Departure From GH

In a post via her twitter account, General Hospital’s Kelly Monaco (Sam) shared her heartbreak on her longtime scene partner, Billy Miller’s (Drew) exit from the ABC daytime drama series.  This was the first time that Kelly addressed the situation in a public forum.

Miller came on to GH back in 2014 as Jason Morgan, following the departure of Steve Burton, who then wound up on Y&R.  When Burton returned to GH in 2017, Miller’s part was then turned-in-to, Jason’s twin, Drew Cain.

Through a great portion of Miller’s run on GH, he was paired romantically on -screen with Monaco and the duo were, and have remained, one of the most popular duo’s in daytime.

Monaco expressed the following in her message: “I feel like I have to address this situation. #BillyMiller ‘s untimely departure from #gh. Honestly, I can not come up with the words to describe how I feel about this decision… a decision that may not be what our audience thinks to be true. I’m heartbroken… more to come.”
