What a fun quick interview, Michael. Julie and Kelly were so cute with you and very natural. You always bring out the best in the stars, and they enjoy you as well. I liked Kelly’s dress also.

“Kelly just said an inappropriate word?” At the Emmys? Really? If this tacky, self-centered, ditzy wench gets an Emmy, it’ll be as much of a joke as when Wright got hers. Most of it is based on brown-nosing anyway, and Sullivan certainly does enough of that, as evidenced in this video and elsewhere.

This nobody doesn’t deserve further publicity. She can’t act her way out of a paper bag, yet her ego is big enough to swallow the entire cast of GH whole. Enough pimping already! It’s not going to make those of us with taste accept this debacle, and the show’s consistently low ratings prove that people aren’t.

I’m all for saving soaps, but that doesn’t mean I have to swallow subpar acting. Maurice Benard doesn’t deserve this crappy storyline, or to be co-starring opposite someone who hasn’t got a flipping clue what she’s doing and only weighs him down.

Are you NUTS? KeSu has had an incredible role with Kate/Connie and she’s done a helluva job with it! GH is, and always has been the superior soap, which is why IT IS STILL ON.

What I am is entitled to my opinion, and it really doesn’t matter to me whether you or anyone else agrees with it or not. GH won’t be on for long if they keep this arrogant *itch on. Ratings don’t lie, and GH’s should be much higher if Sullivan is as great as you claim she is.

So a person is nuts if they think KSu sucks? Ever think that people think that anyone who likes Kelly’s acting is NUTS? Soaps have always and will always be a hot bed of opinions and Em happened to share hers rather politely. GH may have always been the superior soap but it sinking fast with KSu at the helm, despite Ron and Frank’s “magic”.

i love Kelly Sullivans acting. i think she does a wonderful job. She has done an amazing job as Kate/Connie and deserves everything she works so hard to accomplish. she is doing this for the fans and not for herself. she really loves her fans and her job. she worked so hard to get were she is and to be doing what she loves. anyone that driven gets an A in my book.
i also love Julie been watching her since she started on GH and she does an amazing job as well. they could not have casted a better person to play LuLu.
It takes an entire cast to make a show not just 2 people. The cast and crew are wonderful and work so hard to keep the fans coming back for more.

great interview Michael!

kelly sullivan seems like a sweet person. i really wanted to like her acting and in the beginning, i thought she was solid. as soon as the D.I.D. storyline started, she just wasn’t cutting it for me. it was so damn unbelievable and i realize some of this is the subject matter itself. however, she just wasn’t rising to the mark the way, say, erika slezak did so effortlessly on OLTL. i wasn’t comparing, either. but i can’t help but think kelly’s just too green to tackle such a heavy storyline.

sonny was so watchable around other characters, but when stuck in this ConKate storyline he’s boring as hell. i hope the story wraps and kelly can move on to other things.

LISTEN TO THE REPLAY: Soap Nation Live! With Special Guests: Y&R’s Joshua Morrow, DWTS: Juniors & GH’s Hudson West & B&B’s Joe Lando

Listen to “Soap Nation Live! October 2018” on Spreaker.

If you missed Thursday night’s broadcast of Soap Nation Live! with Michael Fairman you can now listen to the replay right here in audio player above!

This episode was given to the gents in soaps as Michael welcomed his very special guests: The Young and the Restless Joshua Morrow (Nick Newman), Dancing with the Stars: Juniors and General Hospital’s Hudson West (Jake), and The Bold and the Beautiful, and One Life to Live and Dr. Quinn Medicine Woman favorite, Joe Lando (Judge Craig McMullen).

During this fun night of chat, Joshua weighed-in on the Shick wedding that went bust, when Sharon told Nick at the altar that she knows he had sex with Phyllis.  Morrow, who will celebrate his 25th year as Nick Newman in early 2019 chimed in what the future for the stat-crossed couple may hold, and how he has enjoyed showing Nick’s dark side of late, plus he revealed one scene he felt uncomfortable with that he would not play, the ladies over the years in Nick’s life, and when asked by a listener of his memories of the late, great Jeanne Cooper (Katherine Chancellor), Joshua shared some fun and poignant remembrances. He also addressed the status of Doug Davidson at the CBS daytime drama, and hopes that the writers will find a way to utilize the Y&R vet in the future.

Next, Hudson West’s joined the podcast where he gave listeners the inside scoop on what it has been like to be one of the 12 celebrity kids competing in the first-ever Dancing with the Stars: Juniors, which debuts Sunday at 8PMEST in a two-hour season premiere on ABC.  Hudson talked on how he has been learning the dance moves with his young pro dance partner and Dancing with the Stars pro mentor, how he deals with nerves before performing his dance routines and more.  General Hospital fans who know of Hudson’s Daytime Emmy-nominated performance of Jake Webber, Elizabeth and Jason’s son, got some interesting tidbits when he talked about working with Rebecca Herbst, Steve Burton and more, and how much he loves being on the show.

The final guest of the night was Joe Lando.  Prior to bringing Joe on the air, Michael played a classic clip from Megan’s death on One Life to Live from the 90’s, where Joe as Jake Harrison performed one of the saddest and most memorable scenes in soaps with his then acting partner, Jessica Tuck.  Joe then revealed when he was on Soap Nation Live that it has been over 20 years since he had heard the scene, and was still moved by it.  Lando who is now appearing as Judge McMullen on CBS’ The Bold and the Beautiful teased there could be a love interest around the corner for the judge, as well as some retribution for his ruling in the custody case of Will Spencer, because of a favor called in by Ridge.  Lando also talks about his time on the hit primetime series, Dr. Quinn Medicine Woman as Byron Sully, and shared more about his time on One Life to Live working with the likes of: Erika Slezak, Bob Woods, and Tuck.

Last, during out Game Show segment, a lucky caller won two VIP tickets to the Star Struck Fan Event Fall Festival in Alexandria, Virginia featuring members of the cast of Days of our Lives, as well as a Y&R goodie bag; which includes a personalizes autographed picture of Joshua Morrow, after answering correctly some Nick Newman trivia!
