Of course, we are talking about Judith Light!

Light who everyone remembers as Karen Wolek from One Life to Live and later, Who’s the Boss? fame on primetime, and myriad of stage plays ,and amazing motion pictures for television performances, and her unwavering support and work for the LGBT community, picked up her first Tony Award for her role in Other Desert Cities.

In her Tony award winning role Light played a dipsomaniac aunt in Jon Robin Baitz’s comedy about a wealthy Palm Springs family facing a series of domestic crises.  Judith was also nominated for a Tony last year for her role in  “Lombardi.”

Now after the jump, watch the incredibly thrilling moment as Judith accepts her Tony, and listen to what she had to say!

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

Lot’s of luck to amazing actress, you deserve the awardI remember all the great roles you played you are one fantastic actress.

Oh, I have loved her for so long-this is wonderful. She is just precious to me. Congratulations, Judith.

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!

Judith Clearly Deserves Her Tony As Witty & Lovable Aunt Silda In Other Desert Cities.

Go, Judith, Go–Yay! 😀 😀

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?

What a fantastic actress and wonderful person. She always gives 100% to everything she does.

Congratulations to Judith Light. Talent and class.

Anne Heche in Her Final TV Performance to Air on ‘All Rise’

It is hard to believe that now one year later, television fans will see the final performance of Daytime Emmy winner, Anne Heche (ex-Vicky/Marley, Another World).  The talented actress passed away from injuries sustained in a car crash back on August 5th, 2022.

Heche was officially declared ‘brain dead’ on August 12th, when her reps shared that Anne was “peacefully taken off life support.”  Before she passed, Anne taped what would be her final TV acting appearance in her recurring role on the legal drama, All Rise.

The series formerly with CBS and now airing on OWN, will air Heche’s last performance this Saturday, September 30th at 9pm ET/8 pm CT.  On All Rise, Heche plays lawyer Corrine Cuthbert.  Since season 2, Heche has taken on the recurring role. She appeared in six episodes.

In story, Corrine has had a fraught professional relationship with Judge Lola Carmichael played by Simone Missick.  For her final appearance, Heche’s Corrine shows up as part of a trial case.

All Rise dedicated the episode to Heche. As the hour comes to its conclusion, they express: “In Memory of Anne Heche, Our Friend and Wonderful Artist. You Are Missed.”

After this, Heche will star posthumously in the independent movie feature Wildfire: The Legend of the Cherokee Ghost Horse, slated for release in November.

Y&R’s Jess Walton On Why Mamie Irks Jill As Feud Reignites: “It’s Mamie’s Arrogance and How Much She Enjoyed Stepping on Jill’s Toes All These Years”

On recent episodes of The Young and the Restless, viewers learned that Mamie Johnson (Veronica Redd) is back and is actually the new secret investor in Chancellor-Winters.

Mamie told Nate (Sean Dominic) that she is looking forward to watching Jill’s (Jess Walton) head explode when it is finally revealed. Those remarks date back to Jill and Mamie’s longstanding feud and history; when Mamie was the Abbott family housekeeper, and both women had relationships with the late John Abbott (Jerry Douglas).

This current story will feature Jess Walton in an arc that pits her against Veronica Redd, and should delight longtime Y&R viewers who have loved the often catty remarks and fireworks between Jill and Mamie.

In the latest issue of Soap Opera Digest on newsstands now, Jess Walton spoke about why Jill has such an issue with Mamie. The Daytime Emmy-winning star expressed, “It’s Mamie’s arrogance and how much she enjoyed stepping on Jill’s toes all of these years. Mamie had always been judging Jill who in turn just hated the influence Mamie had with John.  When Jill was married to him, she never felt welcome in her own home.”

Walton went on to say on this new storyline development: “As far as she (Jill) is concerned that disrespect is continuing because Mamie bought into Chancellor-Winters without letting Jill know.”

Y&R fans can look forward to more of Jess on-screen in the next few months as she informed SOD, she will be taping scenes in October and November on the top-rated soap opera.

When all is said and done, Jess shared that her Genoa City alter-ego is very clear on just how Mamie gets under her skin: “Mamie was always so damn sanctimonious and hollier-than-thou and that always pissed Jill off. Mamie still knows how to really push Jill’s buttons.”

Check out the flashback scenes below featuring Veronica Redd and Jess Walton that were part of this week’s episodes of Y&R; where Mamie is revealed to be a now major investor in Chancellor-Winters.

Now let us know, are you looking forward to seeing the sparks fly between Jill and Mamie in the coming weeks? Share your thoughts in the comment section.
