It’s bad enough B&B has Sheryl on, now this?

They do?
I did not know that.
I agree, this is not necessary and does nothing to enhance the entertainment value.

Go Julie go! As long as that god awful annoying Underwood lady stays off the show!

No kidding. “The Talk” hosts are really annoying and obnoxious.

Not a big fan of the whole GC BUZZ storyline but Julie Chen is awesome.

I just don’t get Y&R. This is 2017 and this story is definitely from 2001!!

If anything, Hilary should have always been arguing that the show should have been on the internet! What local tv gossip show could get enough ratings that some stupid lying gold digger would give up $250,000,000.00 divorce settlement for it?!

This is why I’m so tired of the show. No real imagination.

Victors next story is his biography written by the new town gossip, Scotty, fresh from his desert cage?! If the show truly wants to rewrite Victor’s story (we all know that so much of Victor’s “bad” will be rewritten with a focus on “Jack deserved it”.

What better way to introduce an old character that would beautifully fit into GC today then Leanna Love! She wrote the first biography which actually covered Victors early story. The rest we all know. Leanna could have come back as a book publisher who secretly buys the rights to the book from Scotty.

She would add dimension to Nikki. Add a spark to Victor. A nemesis to both Phyllis and to Gloria. Bug Ashley. It would be perfect! Then at the launch of Victors book, have it revealed that she had a love child with Victor and then introduce yet another Newman but this one as vindictive as Adam and ruthless as Adam.

Leanna could be a super successful and wealthy woman so we could see her stand ground against anyone on the show as well as give her son $$$$ to not need daddy’s!

Alas, Sally and the crew aren’t thinking big. They are just thinking about tomorrow.

I agree, GC Buzz is horrible! Get Mariah away from that whole scene! Give Sally time with the book. Scott will find himself tangled in Victor’s web and then Leanna will arrive, you’ll see!

I shall stay mum about the guest appearance from The Talk, but I AGREE with you about having Leanna Love back on the show! She was such a complex character and would b a nemesis to so many others. Love to see her written back in. Same goes for Tricia (Ryan’s ex.) Would love to see her waltz back into town. Time for someone to give Victoria some maddening grief. I know there’s been a slew of crazies, but, heck, why not bring them all back at once? There’s a thought.

Rhonda

I agree with all of you. Yes, Timm, Mariah is too cool for the GC Buzz. The Mariah I know and love would want nothing to do with that show.
Paul and Ron, love your ideas about Leona Love.

I guess when your spouse is a high ranking person @ CBS you can get on any show on the network. Her voice is so monotone that it sounds like chalk on a blackboard.

The Talk regularly have CBS Daytime stars as guests so it makes sense for Y&R to do the same to her and any of her co-hosts.

NIK…the second sentence in your post is so funny…LOL!!!!! AND SO TRUE!!!!! Oh…and BTW, to me, that Julie Chen woman is not as innocent-looking as she looks. Bottom Line Here: I wouldn’t trust her (or whatever). Nope.

Have a good one, NIK.

Rhonda

Nik is right about her voice. It is grating!
I have noticed certain CNN anchor women talk through their nose and sound like they have marbles in their mouths.
When did broadcasting schools stop teaching voice, speech and elocution?

Karen

I agree. Keep hosting BB and The Talk that’s enough.

Ugh. I’ve never cared for Chen. I’ve spent over five years avoiding “The Talk” on principle: I won’t watch the show that is “partially” responsible for the demise of “As the World Turns”. (Partial as I want to make sure that ATWT producer Chris Goutman and head writer Jean Passanante get their equitable share of the credit for pushing ATWT into a grave). Now, Chen is surfacing on “The Young and the Restless”??? I may skip those episodes.

Oh gawd, another awful stunt casting. Does Julie just whisper in hubby’s ear that she wants a show (The Talk) or guest star on a show (Y&R) and he grants her wish? Must be nice!

Janet

Hey, I simply love Cheryl Underwood!! She is so real in all issues. She gave $Bill a wonderful way to go. She is quick witted and so funny……again, I would miss her on the Talk and would like to see her more often on Bold and Beautiful.

I love the talk, all the ladies & will love to see them all on Y&R OR B&B. Love both shows. .. you ladies get on what ever you can it’s magnificent to see you on daytime.

Makes little difference to me..
I have never heard of nor seen this Chen person.
I wouldn’t have even noticed/known…. lol

This is shameless cross promotion during sweeps month, which CBS does all the time. Y&R audiences will hear all about the Talk, and on the Talk they will promote Chen’s appearance on Y&R– win, win in CBS ‘s eye (s) — I can’t imagine her appearance will be for more than a scene or two at most, so it is what it is– story wise it makes more sense than some stunt casting-in the past- I can totally understand why Hilary would like to meet Julie Chen– they have a lot in common– both got their talk show gig from super rich husbands – ouch–

Carol

I’ll be skipping this episode — nothing original here.

Don’t skip–just fast forward through her scenes. It will be brief I am sure.
Besides, Chloe is about to be found out!

Chen on Y R. Would just make SURE I never watch. Julie chen and her sap husband, they made sure I wouldn’t watch the Talk no matter what. Never have never will. They out this garbage on in place of my favorite show ever. As the world turns. See her face the remote comes out and that’s the end of it. No soaps on that channel even when they have TR on.

‘Edge of Night’ Mainstay Forrest Compton Dies Following Complications From COVID-19

Sad news to report this Monday.  The longtime star of CBS’ and then ABC’s The Edge of Night, Forrest Compton. has passed away due to complications from COVID-19. Forrest died on Sunday at the age of 94.

His death was reported and confirmed by Compton’s friends and an article in the Shelter Island Reporter.

As Edge of Night and longtime daytime fans know, Forrest played Monticello’s district attorney, Mike Karr.  He played this key role from 1971 until the show’s cancellation in 1984.  The show was originally titled “The Edge of Night” and eventually just became “Edge of Night”.   The soap which was steeped in murder mysteries ran on CBS from 1956–1975 and on ABC from 1975–1984,   In addition, Forrest along with his on-screen wife, Ann Flood (Nancy Karr) were one of the most popular duos in daytime.

Not only did Compton appear on EON, but he also had soap roles on As the World Turns, One Life to Live and All My Children.   In primetime, Forrest was best known for his role on Gomer Pyle: USMC opposite  Jim Nabors and Frank Sutton as Lieutenant Colonel Edward Gray.

In a heartwarming story where fan meets actor and helps him out (according to the Shelter Island Reporter) Compton was only slated to appear in two episodes a week for the next 13 weeks on The Edge of Night, when he needed an apartment in New York City near the studio, so when he heard about a one-bedroom on East 72nd he went to see Al, the super.  Forrest later learned that Al was such a devotee of  The Edge of Night that he locked his office door every day at 2 p.m. to watch uninterrupted. When Forrest mentioned that he had just been hired to play Mike Karr, the super said, “You’re getting that apartment.”’

Sharon Gabet who starred as Raven on Edge of Night, posted on Facebook, a tribute and remembrance of her former co-star: “Woody, as he was affectionately known to all of us on The Edge of Night, was a master professional, hilarious, smart, kind and gentle. I spoke with him a couple years ago on his birthday and he was active and happy in his retirement. Rest in peace, Woody, and give hugs and kisses to Larkin, Lois, Dennis, Nick, Joel, Irving and all the other EDGE alumni up there.  THE story about Woody. He was on EON when they were LIVE. It was brutal, but Woody was one of the best “straight face” men in the business. So he is doing a scene with Nancy his wife (the glorious Ann Flood – another “straight face” master). He walks in the kitchen and sits down and his line was supposed to be “Gee, it’s hard to get up in the morning.” as Nancy gave him his coffee. Instead, Mike Karr says on national TV, “Gee it’s hard to get IT up in the morning, Nancy.” There was pandemonium among the crew during the commercial break as you can imagine.”

Now below, watch the opening title sequence fro the The Edge of Night over the years, many of which feature Forrest as Mike Karr at the very opening or at the end as one of the series most well-known and beloved characters.

Robert Newman Shares Why There Has Not Been a Return to Springfield & ‘Guiding Light’ On-Screen Reunion

Robert Newman, best known to daytime soap fans as Josh Lewis on Guiding Light, sat down earlier this week for a wide-ranging interview on his career with Lauren Van Hemert via her You Tube Channel.

The timing of the posting of the interview as in-line with the date GL was officially canceled back on April 1, 2009.  The series began its historic run on TV from radio back on June 30, 1952, and ultimately aired its final episode on September 18, 2009.

From 1980 to 2009, Robert was one of the mainstays and key leading men of Springfield, and of course, the Josh and Reva (Kim Zimmer) love story is one of the most popular ever in the annals of daytime drama.

Right off at the top of the interview; Hemert noted that what she was asked most by fans of Newman’s and GL’s, when and if there will ever be a Guiding Light on-screen reunion.

Newman responded to the question: “I get that a lot.  That question is unfortunately in the hands of Procter and Gamble more than anything else … and they made it very clear over the years that they’re just not going to release the characters and copyrights to the show.”

Robert also added, “In terms of what you are talking about where there might be some sort of production, where there’s an actual reunion, and we see where Josh and Reva are today and that kind of thing (on their probably 15th marriage) … unless Procter and Gamble is somehow willing to shake loose the rights to the show, I don’t see it happening.”

Watch the full interview with the talented Mr. Newman below.

Then let us know, since P&G has made it very clear for the last several years they are out of the soap business completely, do you think its time they just sell the rights so viewers can see some sort of reboot down the line, especially for a show as beloved as Guiding Light? Comment below.
