The dream team of Kimberly McCullough and Finola Hughes are back!

But this time not as mother/daughter on ABC’s General Hospital, where for decades they have played Robin and Anna, but as director and actress, as McCullough directs Hughes on-screen in her passion project pilot of Hey Day!

In the just released short clip from Hey Day, Hughes is seen having quite the ‘frank’ talk to Chrissie Fit who plays the lead in Hey Day.

Fans have rallied around McCullough’s project when news spread that former GH star John Stamos (Ex-Blackie Parrish) was also creating a series inspired by his time on a soap in the 80’s.

Watch this little nugget from Hey Day after the jump, and then let us know if you are excited to see more!

LOL. SuzieQ. The word is not ‘BAD’. Society makes things’ bad’. You know, as kids we were always told not to say certain words, or else. I couldn’t even say, ‘stupid’, especially to my siblings. Now, I call them stupid all the time. LOL. It’s like the word ‘bitch’. The definition is “the female of the species ( canine). But, we tell our kids not to say it. Society dictates it. In different cultures/languages, the term is used, and not considered a no-no. The stigma remains. I even think of the word, and I see my mother’s eyes boring into… Read more »

Let me explain. Saying that word does not come easy for me. I never say it….but, I might say it to myself, sotto voce. So, Timmmy; when I hear someone such as Anna/Finola , whom I adore, and consider a lady, say it…I appreciate it.
Bottom line….we all say ‘WORDS’, just not outloud.

hi Celia ! 🙂
for fun;
what makes the F word so bad?
Why is it profiled as the worst word in history .. LOL

Our tv/movies have rape, torture, bad azz sex, and the bad of the bad, the unthinkable, there are no stop signs for anything in our books, music, media and the F word gets bleeped,,, ahaaa!

Yeah, that word should be reserved for special occasions! I’m not a big fan of swearing. I do find it easier to write than to say! AND, call me old fashion but It is a big turn off for me to hear a women swear like a sailor!

Celia…you are a master of words. What is this one’s origin? Even asking this question I can’t say it easily. Remember when I once used it to my Mother as a teenager. She was by no means an obusive (sp?) mom, but she slapped me across the face (I can still feel it) and said to never use that word again, especially to her. So even if the hatch hits me on the head like Su I can’t say it. Must admit s**t has been my go-to word instead under these kind of situations.

Emme Rylan On Her Final GH Scenes: “Laying There Emotionless While My Amazing Costars Cried Over My Comatose Body Was One of the Hardest Acting Challenges EVER!”

If you watched Tuesday’s episode of General Hospital, you witnessed an emotional and heartbreaking episode where friends, family, and loved ones had to say their goodbyes to Lulu Spencer (Emme Rylan) before she is transferred to a long-term care facility to be looked after following her brain injuries and surgery which left her in a coma.

This was to mark the last scenes of Emme Rylan who has exited the series after being let-go.  In story, viewers watched as Nikolas (Marcus Coloma), Maxie (Kirsten Storms), Dante (Dominic Zamprogna), Tracy (Jane Elliot) and a grief-stricken Laura (Genie Francis) sat by Lulu’s hospital bedside telling her they will be waiting for her to wake up, as the agonize over the gravity of the situation.

On Wednesday, Rylan took to social media to tell her fans how difficult it was for her to tape those scenes, when she expressed: “Laying there emotionless while my amazing costars cried over my comatose body was one of the hardest acting challenges EVER! They don’t exactly have you practice that in acting school (Thank u to everyone that noticed).”

In response former GH star Ryan Paevey (Ex-Nathan) who also went through a similar on-screen situation when his character was killed-off tweeted back to Em: “I 100% agree and understand, haha.”

The episode gave  Genie Francis a fantastic palette to play and reminded everyone why she is one of the greatest icons of the genre.

So, what did you think of Emme’s statement on trying to get through those difficult scenes as played by her co-stars?  Share your thoughts below.

Daytime Emmys To Remain Virtual For Upcoming 2021 Ceremony

With an uncertain situation of when live events can get back to normal, or as they have been in the past prior to the coronavirus pandemic, The National Academy of Television Arts and Sciences (NATAS) announced today that it plans on keeping next year’s Daytime Emmys award show virtual, to allow for the 2022 awards cycle to stay on track.

In fact, all of NATAS’s award ceremonies including: the News and Documentary Emmys, Technology & Engineering Emmys and the Sports Emmys will also remain virtual next year.

The Daytime Emmys became the first major award show to air a virtual presentation that others followed back in late June of this year and aired on CBS.

In a statement, NATAS chairman and CEO Adam Sharp expressed on the organization’s decision:“The current timetables articulated by manufacturers project mass availability of vaccinations for the entire U.S. population by mid-summer 2021, potentially permitting a return to more traditional in-person ceremonies later in the fall. However, we have determined that delaying our 2021 events to possibly allow for a compressed calendar of in-person Emmy ceremonies late in the year would result in unacceptable delays to our awards cycle for 2022. Instead, we have decided to remain “virtual” in the format of our ceremonies for 2021 while relying on a substantially pre-COVID awards calendar. In so doing, we believe we will be best-positioned to return to a full, on-time, traditional schedule of in-person ceremonies in 2022.

The dates currently under consideration for the 48th annual Daytime Emmys which would be via two or three nights of presentations are: a combination of dates from Friday, June 25, Saturday, July 17 and/or Sunday, July 18.

For those entering the competition, the entry deadline is February, 17, 2021 with  the nominations not to come till May or June.

So, what do you think about the Daytime Emmys going virtual again for 2021? Comment below.
