Not a team I would choose…

For those in attendance, I propose a drinking game: take a swig every time Underwood throws herself at, or otherwise makes a sexually suggestive comment to, a man on stage or in the audience.

Will the Emmys at least be broadcast live online again this year? I’ve seen no word from anyone on this, which I think is very poor. Keep hyping who is hosting, or who is gonna be at the show, without telling us where we might be able to watch the show. It’s bad enough that it’s not shown on television anymore, but if it’s not at least carried live online then I have absolutely zero interest.

What do I think about these hosts? I’m not sure it matters exactly who is hosting the show if it isn’t going to be televised. “Internet streaming” is not what I would call being televised.

Has a network signed on to this? If there has been no announcement by now (with 3 weeks until the broadcast), I’m thinking it is unlikely.

I’m happy for Mario Lopez and Sheryl Underwood for being the ones that were chosen to host the 44th Annual Daytime Emmys Awards. But would like to know if we the fans are going to be able to have the chance to watch it. I mean it would only be fair.

I would shoot out all my TV’s, step on my Ipad and flush my I Phone down the toilet BEFORE I would watch one second of Cheryl Underwood dry humping Steve Burton again! She is a horrible choice. Why not Mario and Maria Menounos?

It’s ridiculous that once again no network is carrying this awards show on TV. Those of us who watch daytime TV regularly are left out once again. Come on. Someone out there needs to step up.

Heche is legally dead according to California law, although her heart is still beating she has not been taken off life support in order to allow for organ donations to take place and to find the right recipients.

After six days of almost unbelievable emotional swings, I am left with a deep, wordless sadness. Hopefully my mom is free from pain and beginning to explore what I like to imagine as her eternal freedom. Over those six days, thousands of friends, family, and fans made their hearts known to me. I am grateful for their love, as I am for the support of my Dad, Coley, and my stepmom Alexi who continue to be my rock during this time. Rest In Peace Mom, I love you.”

The talented actress is best-known to soap opera fans for her Daytime Emmy-winning dual roles as twins, Vicky and Marley Hudson on Another World.  She had two sons, Homer with her ex Coley Laffoon and Atlas, 13, with actor James Tupper.

Anne Heche ‘Not Expected to Survive’; Suffered Severe Brain Injury From Fiery Crash

In just heartbreaking news, Daytime Emmy-winner, Anne Heche (Ex-Vicky/Marley, Another World), is not expected to survive after days in the hospital following being severely burned in a fiery car crash when her vehicle struck a home in Mar Vista, California last Friday.

According to family and friends of the motion picture and television star in a statement, “Unfortunately, due to her accident, Anne Heche suffered a severe anoxic brain injury and remains in a coma, in critical condition. She is not expected to survive. It has long been her choice to donate her organs and she is being kept on life support to determine if any are viable.”  Deadline notes, the actress will be taken off life-support.

The statement went on to say, “We want to thank everyone for their kind wishes and prayers for Anne’s recovery and thank the dedicated staff and wonderful nurses that cared for Anne at the Grossman Burn Center at West Hills hospital.  More than her extraordinary talent, she saw spreading kindness and joy as her life’s work — especially moving the needle for acceptance of who you love. She will be remembered for her courageous honesty and dearly missed for her light.”

There are plans for Heche to get an Honor Walk, which is a hero’s goodbye donor patients receive by hospital staff as they are wheeled into the operating room in their final journey.

Heche will be featured on Lifetime’s Girl in Room 13, set to premiere this fall in September. Lifetime’s Executive VP  and head of programming, Amy Winter, revealed earlier this week at the TCA press tour, “As many of you know, Anne remains in critical condition and all of us here at Lifetime are deeply concerned for her and everyone affected. This project is important to Anne, along with each and every one of us. We all sought to make a film that would bring attention to this appalling issue of human sex trafficking.”

In addition, TMZ had reported that following toxicology reports, Cocaine was found in Heche’s system following the crash. They also found fentanyl. However,  sources say fentanyl can often be used as a pain medication in hospitals, so there is no confirmation that it was in Anne’s system at the time of the crash.

Anne was an amazing actress with such a tortured life.  We send thoughts and prayers to all her loved ones during this difficult time.  Share your thoughts on the latest update on Anne in the comment section below.
