I wish I could watch RetroTV on my cable system. I could get into following The Doctors. Didn’t really watch it during the original run. Looks like there are many familiar faces.

Thing is;
The network will air two episodes Monday through Friday at 12 p.m. ET/PT
in the old old days women were home during those hours, but they no longer are..
I would guess– seniors/retired and disabled are the ones home during the day..
that is a the big problem with the soaps is the hours/daytime they are shown..
If they were shown during the evening they would really pick up viewers..
G’ma said, there once was a time when a man was ashamed/embarrassed if his wife had to work LOL .. so yah, they were home during the day to watch soaps..
that is no longer our world 🙁
thany for the internet and other ways to watch!!

Yes and in those days women had their makeup and hair done for breakfast, all dressed up and ready to wait on their husbands hand and foot with martini in hand when they got home. My grandmother used to tell me that a wife had to always “please her husband” whenever he wanted and always had to look good doing it…LOL…

For those pioneers in their 90’s now, they really do not understand the world today… Leave it to beaver was reality back then.

I dont get this channel like i originally thought…wouldve love to seen it again…rare for a soap to have all its episodes…ive watched Dark Shadows and Strange Paradise who have all there episodes but they were supernatural soaps where The Doctors isnt…and its rare for a normal soap that began in the 60s to have all their episodes…Days might be the only other one…GH i heard has a lot from the 60s but some from the early 70s are missing…wish AW and Edge had all of theirs but most are gone forever!!!

Man I wish I had Retro TV, I wish I some of the retro channels in my area would start rebroadcasting some of these old soaps. I would love to see soap episodes from the 70s, 80s, and 90s. That was the great thing about SoapNet back in the day before they went reality on us and eventually died.

Hopefully more classic soap episodes are shown in the future.

Karla Mosley Back To Work At B&B; Hunter Tylo On The Way Too?

Fans of The Bold and the Beautiful this week got some fun intel from two sources, the actresses themselves! First, Karla Mosley has returned to taping all-new episodes of the CBS daytime drama series, following her maternity leave.

That means Maya Avant will be back in action.. In an Instagram post holding a script from the series, she noted, “Back to work!!!! Having all the feels.”

Mosley gave birth in August to her daughter, Aurora Imani.   Maya was last seen on the canvas in that month as well.  No word yet if Maya’s return will also bring with it Rick Forrester (Jacob Young) who went on recurring status with the show and is off doing other projects.

In other news, looks like fan favorite Hunter Tylo (Taylor) may be back on Bold, in time for the holidays, if her tweets are any indication of that.  Having a twitter exchange with fans of the series, one who seemed disgruntled again, Tylo posted this!

This would indicate Tylo is on her way back for holiday episodes and maybe more of the soap as Taylor!  She also tweeted on the Bill, Ridge, Katie custody drama and shenanigans, “Think I need to go to go straighten these people out?”.  The thread on Hunter’s twitter page continued with a “Stay Tuned” GIF and more.

So, excited to see Maya and Taylor back on the canvas at The Bold and the Beautiful? What would you like to see happen for the characters in story? Comment below.

Y&R’s Tracy E. Bregman Shares Heartbreak Of Losing Her Home In Southern California Wildfires On ‘The Talk’

The wildfires continue to leave destruction in their path in Southern California as hundreds of thousands in Southern California have had to leave their homes behind.  Many are finding nothing to come back to after what is now called the Woolsey Fire burned down their beloved homes.

One of those victims who lost her home over the weekend to the fires is The Young and the Restless, Tracey E. Bregman (Lauren). She is among other celebrities such as: Miley Cyrus, Gerard Butler, and Neil Young whose houses in the Malibu area were destroyed.

Bregman made a guest appearance on today’s episode of The Talk, revealing what happened when she found her house had been burned to the ground in a heartbreaking moment.

The Daytime Emmy-winner shared: “It’s been surreal.  It’s kind of hard to wrap your mind around … it’s hard to believe all the family celebrations and everything that I had in there is gone.  I woke up thinking, I actually don’t have anything from my past. I have no notes, or cards, or anything like that. But like Miley Cyrus said, I got my kids out, my animals out, we’re alive.”

Tracey added, “This is my third evacuation since I moved there in 2004.  I got my dog, I was able to pack a bag … grab my Emmy, but my fathers NAACP award did not make it out, and he passed away a year and a half ago, so I’m missing that.  I honestly don’t know where to live, what to do. Luckily, I just bought a little place in Nashville, and I think my whole family, we’re going to spend Thanksgiving, actually with my friends Todd and Julie Chrisley, they invited us.”

Eileen Davidson (Ex-Ashley, Y&R) also reported via social media that she is safe but there eas some damage to her home: “After living for 24 hours thinking we lost our house completely we found out yesterday that we only lost the yard around our house. Sweating it out for the next 48 hours and praying for everybody involved in this devastating and horrific fire. Love to all of you.”

At least 370 structures have been destroyed and two people have died in the catastrophic blaze, which has now spread to 92,000 acres as of Monday.

Celebrities such as: Lady Gaga, Kim Kardashian West and Alyssa Milano fled their houses over the weekend to escape the flames and winds.

Watch Tracey’s tragic story on the loss of her home below.  Then, share your well-wishes and prayers for Tracey via the comment section,
