LISTEN TO THE BROADCAST: Soap Nation Live! with Michael Fairman with Co-Host Kelly Sullivan & Guests: Scott Clifton, Darin Brooks, Vinessa Antoine and Scott Elrod!

Last night on the November edition of Soap Nation Live with Michael Fairman, we welcomed our very special in-studio co-host The Young and the Restless Kelly Sullivan (Sage) for a lively and entertaining 90 minute broadcast.

Michael and Kelly welcomed their “Soap Nation Live November Sweeps” line-up of guests throughout the show which included: The Young and the Restless Scott Elrod (Joe), The Bold and the Beautiful’s Darin Brooks (Wyatt) and Scott Clifton (Liam), and General Hospital’s Vinessa Antoine (Jordan).

Kelly Sullivan discussed throughout the episode myriad of Y&R related topics including: what it has been like for her working with the new Adam Newman … Justin Hartley, what is potentially going on between Sage and Adam, and why Sage was dressed in a cloak at the church when she was apparently spying on Chelsea (Melissa Claire Egan)! Kelly also reveals how she got the call from Y&R’s EP Jill Farren Phelps that the number one soap had a new role specifically in mind for Kelly.

Scott Elrod of The Young and the Restless was the first guest of the night.  One of the newest cast members called-in and admitted he too is trying to figure out what angle, his character of Avery’s ex Joe Clark, is working! Plus, Scott talks about his time on the series Men in Trees and working opposite Anne Heche, and that his mom is a big fan of the soaps.  Then, Scott chimes in on what he thinks of some of his male co-stars including: Steve Burton (Dylan) and Colin (Tristan Rogers).

The Bold and the Beautiful’s Darin Brooks (Wyatt) and Scott Clifton (Liam) joined Michael and Kelly (Nathan) in-studio to preview the November Sweeps Amsterdam storyline which kicked-off this Friday on the CBS soap opera.  The duo also commented on the shocking news this week for fans of the series, that their longtime co-star Kim Matula (Hope) has decided to leave B&B and has already taped her final scenes.  Later, Darin and Scott played a hilarious game show segment designed specifically for them entitled, “Which Bro Said DAT?”  In it,  Kelly and Michael read lines of dialog said by either Liam or Wyatt, and Scott and Darin had to try to recall and figure out which one of their characters said it!

General Hospital’s Vinessa Antoine joined Michael and Kelly later in-studio where we got the skinny on what is up with DEA agent Jordan Ashford!  Vinessa also revealed she loves working with Tony Geary, who is now back taping at GH after his medical leave and vacation, and that she does know the true identify of whoFluke” truly is! The talented star also chimed in on: getting the opportunity to work with one of her childhood idols, Finola Hughes (Anna), what she thinks of of the chemistry with her on-screen beau, Sean Blakemore, what she thought of the scenes where Jordan took the rap for Ava running over Jason Morgan, and being tied up in bubble wrap thanks to Heather Webber (Robin Mattson).  The cutest moment of the night came when Vinessa’s young son called in to ask a question to his mom!

Now below listen to the entire broadcast of Soap Nation Live! with co-host Kelly Sullivan, and then let us know what your favorite moment of the episode!

I listened to all the 90 minutes

B&B is last on my list and does not showcase

I enjoyed, “Jordan” of GH… altho … and it’s OK.. I give her credit for pressing… a newbie is just that… she’s a keeper… I think she’s sexy… I love her relationship.. or get back to … Jordan and TJ… thats a big draw… Sean is no slouch either

the big plus… was MF dalliance and showcase.. with his demeanor with Kelly Sullivan.. which is why I tuned in.. you both brung it… was natural and endearing…

it really showed my why… Kelly Sullivan and Michelle Stafford are BFF. ’nuff said. I love these women

I’m ecstatic and through the moon.. that she’s back on … daytime… big deal. I had hoped DAYS would have seen fit to recast her as Sami…

Michael Fairman… you and Kelly were giddy enjoy and plussed throughout… NICE!

What a treat, thank you!!!

I enjoyed the interview with Vinessa Antoine and Kelly Sullivan. Thanks for sharing Michael. Not surprised at all that Vinessa Antoine stated she liked working with William DeVry. Their chemistry jumps off the screen!

I am so sad that Kim Matula is leaving as the role of Hope I cannot imagine the story without her I loved Liam and, Hope story, I cannot stand Quinn story to mean.

thank you so much for posting this michael!

GENERAL HOSPITAL: Drew and Nina Get Physical; Were You Surprised or Did You Expect it to Happen?

On the Tuesday, April 9th episode of General Hospital, Drew (Cameron Mathison) and Nina’s (Cynthia Watros) explosive relationship just turned up the heat another notch.

In story, Nina who was responsible (although she doesn’t see it that way) for Drew being sent to prison for insider trading when she tipped off the SEC, let out her feelings to him about how to get back in the good graces of her daughter, Willow (Katelyn MacMullen) and Michael (Chad Duell). In doing so, she asks him for his help with it.

For months, the two have had nothing short of contentious moments, where Drew has not let Nina off the hook for what he did to him, or to his ex Carly (Laura Wright). Fast-forward and when alone in the Crimson office, Nina brings up wanting to stick it to Carly again.

As they banter back and forth, Drew can’t figure out why he should help Nina at all with any of her manipulations. Suddenly, as he tried to exit, his shirt rips and exposes his bare chest and abs, and Nina get quite an eyeful. From there, things become physical and before you know it, Drew and Nina are making out and having their version of hate-sex.


Cameron Mathison spoke to Soap Opera Digest on the shocking turn events, sharing, “I didn’t see it coming at all. I really didn’t. I think the audience did. Cynthia did some appearances and I guess the audience was ‘You and Drew, there’s some sexy chemistry there.’ I was like, ‘Wait, what? Really?’ I didn’t even get it. So I love it that it was very unexpected. The writers saw it, too. And, I love that it’s not a typical way for two people to be … physical. I was gonna say intimate, but there’s not a lot of intimacy there. And then as soon as it’s over, it’s back to arguing and giving each other crap again. It was really cute and really well done.”

As the fallout for their office room romp will air on the Wednesday April 10th episode, just how will the two deal with the fact that they had this fiery passionate moment in the weeks and months ahead? Will this be Nina’s new plot to get at Carly to be seen with her ex? Will Drew and Nina never speak of this again? (Well, this is a soap opera, after all, that’s pretty doubtful), or is this part of a major reset for some of the characters on the canvas now that Patrick Mulcahey and Elizabeth Korte are co-head writing the show?


Speaking on the aftermath of the tryst, Mathison added, “The two of them are both like, all right, let’s forget about that and move on. It’s like a weird kind of aggression attraction. There’s obviously attraction there, but I don’t think either of them expected it, and I think they’re both totally shocked and surprised by it. I think Drew gets a kick out of it whereas Nina is a little embarrassed by it.”

Now let us know, did you see this coming? Did you think Drew and Nina would have sex? What do you think of the story turn? Comment below.

General Hospital’s Asher Antonyzyn Shares, “I Think That If Jason Doesn’t Get Sent Away Again, He and Danny Will Have a Really Great Connection”

It is clear that Danny Morgan (Asher Antonyzyn), as of right now, has the most character traits of his father, Jason Morgan (Steve Burton). When Jason returned to Port Charles and was hiding out at the Quartermaine boat house, viewers saw that Danny wanted to help out his dad as much as he could.

When the two shared a heart-to-heart about Danny’s passions and Jason learned he is turning out to be a sort of adrenaline junkie like himself, the father and son shared a bonding moment.

‘Asher Antonyzyn spoke to Soap Opera Digest about Danny having a lot more to do in story now that Jason is back, and how it has been working with Steve Burton and where he thinks the on-screen relationship can go.

When speaking of how Danny is drawn to adrenaline and danger like his father, Asher expressed: “I can’t keep count of all the times that people say, ‘Danny, he’s just like his dad!’ I think that if Jason doesn’t get sent away again, he and Danny will have a really great connection.”

On his screen-time with Steve Burton, Antonyzyn added,  “When Steve Burton was coming back as Jason, I was like, ‘Since Danny never really had storyline with him, maybe I’ll come back out here a lot more and be able to do that with him.’ And then it happened! So that was pretty cool.”

So, do you hope that Danny and Jason’s connection is explored further? Do you think we will watch Asher grow up and become Jason Morgan 2.0? Comment below.
