Now all she needs is a Grammy and I think she’ll have won it all.

Wow! Judith has won the Tony and deservedly so. She is such a force in the acting world. I have watched her in every show she was on. Unfortunatly, I have not seen her on Broadway, but on Law and Order as a Judge and Ugly Betty. Congrats Judith!….

Judith Light…. she is such a “lauded” actress. Congratulations. What I herald Ms. Light for… is her continued support for giving voice to LGBT advocacy. She’s a front runner.. in that, she’s been helping people for years… like, all her life. Kudos to stepping up to the plate. Sincere thank you… for giving time to the lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender community.

I loved you on Ugly Betty!

Judith Light, to me, is the personification of a capital A Actress, and this award is so deserving, especially in such a acclaimed production of an acclaimed play with other A-listers! More than 30 years later and Light’s Karen Wolek performance on the stand still resonates and is remembered, not for shock value but for the truth and honesty she gave that character on ONE LIFE TO LIVE. She is one who truly completes her characters, even her Angela on the sitcom WHO’S THE BOSS? was played on levels that were beyond the material. Congratulations, Judith Light!

I’m happy for Judith Light but a wish she would go eat a burger! She’s too skinny! All her bones are showing! Doesn’t she own a mirror?

In a week that saw Days of our Lives make the mainstream news media, Saturday Night Live decided to spoof the current President Trump impeachment hearings and turn them into its own amped up soap opera, with special guest star, Jon Hamm.  The hearings are also currently upsetting many a soap fan its pre-emptions of their network daytime dramas.

Meanwhile, SNL’s Alex Moffat played House Intelligence Committee Chair Adam Schiff and Mikey Day served as “cross-examiner” Republican Rep. Jim Jordan.  Cecily Strong took on the role of former Ambassador Marie Yovanovitch and Pete Davidson portrayed  attorney Michael Avenatti.  Then, Kenan Thompson stopped by as  suspended NFL player Myles Garrett and Melissa Villaseñor played “telenovela sensation,” Democratic Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez.

As “AOC”, Melissa says: “This hearing is lacking one thing — a star!” . She then let her hair down and makes out with Taylor played by Hamm.

DAYS Brock Kelly and Y&R’s Donny Boaz Make Debuts: What Were Your First Impressions?

This week saw the arrival on the soap scene of two characters who look to figure heavily into story in the towns of Salem and Genoa City.  First, over at Days of our Lives during their first week of episodes with their time-jump, Brock Kelly appeared in his first scenes as Evan, the manny, to little David.

On DAYS, Evan looks to being taking an interest in a grieving and distraught Sonny (Freddie Smith), who is dealing with the anniversary of his mother’s death and that his husband, Will (Chandler Massey) is in prison for the crime that killed her (whatever that is has yet to be revealed).

For Brock Kelly this is not his first time on DAYS, having last been on the show back in 2005 as Abigail’s (then played by Ashley Benson) first boyfriend, Josh.

Over at Y&R, the much talked about Chance Chancellor finally arrived in Genoa City, and already had a confrontation with Cane (Daniel Goddard), helped save the day in a hostage crisis, and more.

Actor Donny Boaz has already mixed things up with many a resident of the town and shared scenes with Michelle Stafford (Phyllis), Mark Grossman (Adam), and more.  This is Boaz’s first daytime soap.  The last time Chance was in Genoa City he was played by John Driscoll.
