You bet! I read memoirs by Jeanne Cooper (just loved it and so miss her presence!), Susan Lucci, Kim Zimmer, Eric Braeden, and Thaao Penghlis. Great books all. Eager to enjoy Melody Thomas Scott’s too.

I will for sure want to read Melody’s story. I’m always fascinated with the autobios of soap stars. I’ve enjoyed every one that I have read so far.

I will definitely be ordering it. I too loved the memoirs of Jeanne Cooper, Eric Braeden, and Kim Zimmer. I hope Melody has some dish about working on MARNIE with Alfred Hitchcock and that awful PIRANHA flick as well. Of course, the best will be her legendary run as “Miss Nikki Reed”, as Darlene Conley used to hiss at her, and her life as Victor’s “ex pole-strippah” partner. What memories she must have!

So enjoyed these two fantastic actresses and their interaction today, as Nicki offered her support to Sharon in her time of need. I was in the same situation years ago, without anyone to lean on, and only my own worries and what ifs to keep me company. The ending brought tears,seeing the comfort given and accepted. The music was my favorite also, often used in Sharon and Nick scenes over the years. Once Sharon is better, and Iam sure she will be, I hope they can remain friends. It would be such a waste if this doesn’t happen.

The scenes today between her and Case were fantastic they are very good friends off screen and it was a emotional scene today it’s the only reason I am still hanging on to this soap !

Corbin Bernsen to Reprise His Role of Arnie Becker in ‘LA Law’ Revival Pilot

Corbin Bernsen (Father Todd, The Young and the Restless) and the son of Y&R’s late great Jeanne Cooper (Katherine Chancellor) has signed on to reprise his signature primetime television role of womanizing lawyer Arnie Becker in the upcoming LA Law revival pilot.

This makes Corbin the co-lead of the series alongside Blair Underwood (Ex-OLTL) who previously signed on to the pilot to reprise his role of Jonathan Rollins.  ABC has greenlit the pilot.

According to Deadline, it is believed that Bernsen and Underwood will be the only original members of the mid 80’s-90’s legal drama on NBC in the pilot, but more may guest-star if the show gets picked up for a full-season order.

In the premise of the reboot, the law firm of McKenzie Brackman, now named Becker Rollins, reinvents itself as a litigation firm specializing in only the most high profile, boundary pushing and incendiary cases.  The show will feature familiar characters working alongside new ones on the most hot button issues of the day.  As for Bernsen’s Becker, now in his 60’s, look for him to struggle with a rapidly shifting sexual and political landscape.

The original LA Law ran for eight seasons from September 15, 1986 to May 19, 1994 on NBC.

So, what do you think of Corbin taking on the role of Arnie Becket in a revival of LA Law? Would you be intrigued to check out the show if it makes it to series? Comment below.
