It’s going to be odd to see Sofia and Malcolm interact, considering that Shemar Moore was not portraying the character when he was reintroduced and married to Sofia several years ago. I’m also curious about what happened to Moses, considering that we never see him on screen and he’s rarely ever mentioned. The same thing happens on B&B with Brooke and Nick’s son (who was carried by Taylor) Jack. Soaps seem to forget about the children of certain characters when it’s convenient for story purposes. As for Neil’s romances with Sofia and Leslie, they never clicked. Dru will always be… Read more »

It will be great seeing the ladies. These episodes will make Kristoff’s passing more real since I’m still in the “I can’t believe it stage.” Even if the all the returnees weren’t attending , and the show wasn’t having remembrance episodes, Kristoff’s death is still a final reality because God has made the ultimate call which none of us can rescind.

I appreciate the care taken to honor Mr. St. John’s passing and his character of Neil Winters. Of course, the people in his life, including these women, should be included and would be expected. But I expect to see Moses or understand is absence. Y&R at various time has played fast and loose with its characters. Neil Winters suffered that fate too when he went dark and rogue, and seemed to get involved in these romances that went nowhere fast. I mean no disrespect to the actors. They are very good. It was misguided storytelling. Dru was his forever and… Read more »

I dont understand an appearance of Julia Pace Mitchell who only had a one time thing with Neil, producing Moses. I would rather have seen Nia Peoples who portrayed his second wife Karen Taylor, although she left him for sleeping with Devon’s mother. Neil certainly had his problems with the ladies. I understand Moses will return, being played by the same little actor. I don’t even remember the last actor to play Malcolm, as far as I am concerned it will always be Shemar Moore. That leads me to my next question of whether or not they will bring up… Read more »

Anne Heche Memoir ‘Call Me Anne’ to Be Released Posthumously

Following the tragic death of Daytime Emmy-winning actress, Anne Heche (ex-Vicky/Marley, Another World), now comes word that the follow-up to her 2001 memoir Call Me Crazy will be released in January of 2023 posthumously.

Independent publisher, Start, shared an excerpt of the upcoming memoir, Call Me Anne, this week with the AP and Publisher’s Weekly.  The book’s publisher, Jarred Weisfeld, signed a deal with Heche back in May, and shared that she had turned it into a manuscript shortly before she died.

In a statement, Weisfield shared, “Anne was an inspiration to the LGBTQ+ community and beyond. This book deserves to be read by all of her fans. We are grateful to have the opportunity to share her message with the world. While we are very sad that Anne isn’t here to see the book be published we know it’s what she would have wanted.”

During her podcast “Better Together” with co-host Heather Duffy, Heche had mentioned she was writing a sequel to her original memoir, and that ‘some of the truths’ about her relationship with Ellen DeGeneres would be revealed.

Ellen and Anne’s relationship in Hollywood in the late 90’s, ultimately led to her being blacklisted in Hollywood due to the twosome being one of the first openly gay couples in Tinseltown.  In an excerpt from Call Me Anne, Heche shares, “I was labeled ‘outrageous’ because I fell in love with a woman. I had never been with a woman before I dated Ellen.”

In a epilogue to the book, Heather Duffy expressed that Anne’s, “wish was that this book could help others get to the other side of pain and learn about her philosophy, which allowed her to remain in a life where she woke up each day looking for opportunities to find joy and spread kindness. So, in some ways, knowing her the way I do and knowing that spreading her message of kindness is what mattered to her most, she would be content that the last thing she worked on was this book.”

Anne passed away on August 14th at the age of 53, after being taken off life-support from injuries sustained from her fiery car crash into a home that eventually took her life.

What do you think about Anne’s second memoir coming in 2023? Will you be intrigued to see what she had to share? Let us know in the comment section. 

In case you missed it, Heche discusses with Michael Fairman in a virtual interview two years ago, about her time with DeGeneres and how it impacted her getting work in Hollywood and more.  You can watch it below.

I don’t sing any victim song. I’m a woman. I’m an artist, and I know where my voice belongs. And there’s so many young actors, artists, even kids that think they know what they’re going to do in life, find your voice and put it where it belongs.”

Lizzo shared: “I’m very emotional. The trophy is nice, but my emotion is for these people who are on the stage with me. The stories that they shared, they’re not that unique. They just don’t get the platform. Telling stories, let’s just tell more stories. When I was a little girl, all I wanted to see was me in the media, someone fat like me, Black like me, beautiful like me.  If I could go back and tell little Lizzo something, I’d be like, ‘You’re going to see that person, but Bitch, it’s gonna have to be you.’”

In the top show categories: Succession won Drama Series, Ted Lasso, Comedy Series and The White Lotus, Outstanding Limited Series. You can check out the full winners circle in all categories here.

Eva LaRue’s Stalker Sentenced to 40 Months in Prison

In a harrowing situation spanning 12 years, a man who threatened former All My Children, Santa Barbara, and Y&R favorite, Eva LaRue (ex-Maria, ex- Margot, ex-Celeste) and her daughter, Kaya was sentenced to 40 months in prison.

James David Rogers, 58, was sentenced by U.S. District Judge John A. Kronstadt for over a decade of threatening letters and phone calls about torture, rape and death to LaRue and her daughter.

Rogers had pleaded guilty in April to two counts of mailing threatening communications, one count of threats by interstate communications and two counts of stalking.  According to court documents, all of this began in March 2007 until Rogers eventually was arrested in November 2019.  At the beginning of his stalking spree, LaRue’s daughter, Kaya was only five-years-old.

According to Deadline, Eva gave a “tearful victim impact statement, telling the judge in L.A. federal court that she has undergone therapy since the harassment began in order to deal with feelings of fear and paranoia.”  She added, “We didn’t know if he would show up on our doorstep. We will think about him for a lifetime. The fear is with me forever.”

The judge has ordered Rogers to self surrender on October 12th to begin his sentence at a federal prison in Ohio.

Eva won a Daytime Emmy back in 2020 for her guest star turn on The Young and the Restless, and is best-known to primetime viewers for her role in CSI: Miami.
