He’s the secret Tessa’s been keeping.

I really like the guy on Snowfall.
hope he bring some of his hardcor manly with him to Y&R..

Of all the ‘stunt casting’ done on all the soaps, I HATE the CBS stunt casting of the Big Brother contestants.

Nepotism anyone???

He’s done very well Tainted Dreams an Amazon soap opera.

As for Tainted Dreams soap, the series has veterans from some of TV’s soaps..
So, he is in fact a soap actor, too.
In Tainted Dreams ;
All My Children: Alicia Minshew, Walt Willey, Michael Lowry, Terri Ivens, Bobbie Eakes, and the late great Larkin Malloy

As The World Turns: Austin Peck, Colleen Zenk, Kelley Hensley, and Marnie Schulenburg

One Life To Live: James DePaiva, llene Kristen, Nathan Purdee, and Tonja Walker

General Hospital: Natalia Livingston

Guiding Light: Grant Aleksander

Soap Opera Digest veteran Carolyn Hinsey

I like him in FX Snowfall series, too.

I stand by my original comment!!
He wouldn’t be where he is without the nepotism.
Maybe they got lucky with this one, but most are duds.

I totally agree with you.

Another meathead who cant act lol

Richard, absolutely correct! And he was never a fan favorite of mine. His 15 minutes of fame ended a few years ago.

Far from a thespian but that body tho….


Richard…ya’ got that right!!!!! I didn’t care for THAT MUSCLE-HEAD when he was on Big Brother…and I STILL DON’T LIKE HIM!!!!! Something about that dude that has always annoyed me. Oh…and BTW, you calling him a ‘meathead’…LOVE IT…AND A PERFECT DESCRIPTION…LOL!!!!!

Have a good one, Richard.

They really that hard up for actors?

LOVE, LOVE, LOVE JESSIE!!!!!! My favorite Big Brother contestant and the reason I watched Tainted Dreams. I’m one of his biggest fans. Can’t wait to see Mr. Pectacular in action on Young & Restless.

Yay, Mr. PECS on my favorite soap. I love him. I’m watching!!

Not familiar with him-but most certainly would like to be- oh my yes! Yes! Also, I remember Marla Adams from Secret Storm. She was ruthless and powerful and was my role model that got me suspended from grade school when the teacher kept me after school and I told her that perhaps she should focus on her own life and the troubles in her marriage. But, it did pay off. as I had more time to watch my shows. I have thought she seemed a little frail and off as I watch her on Y&R- but she is acting! She is so superbly talented and nuanced and deluxe- I just adore her and I fear her story will not turn out well for Dina- I will not miss any of her performances and really want to shout out to her that she is still and always has been at the top of her game. Love you Marla Adams. I am also very very much loving what id going on between Mariah and Tessa-and I love Tessa’s singing. If the show does indeed go there- and I am so hoping they do- to me it seems totally plausible and I like both actresses very much and looking forward. I have read the comments flying in on social media against this very much so curious and definitely tuned in for more. Also adore Ravi and enjoy him on the show.

He is certainly a fine fine man in his prime. Let me turn on the A/C. Yes, I can see you in grade school doing your best Belle- I forget her last name and your teacher’s response-would have loved to see that. Marla is quite good. I honestly thought perhaps she could not handle this at her age- and I am not far behind her and I mean no insult whatsoever-I am a fan of hers-but as you say-she has been crafting this woman who is going to self-destruct and I love her and fear for her and also will try and not miss any as she is excellent and I like the story and the others as you mentioned- show making me very happy.

My heart currently belongs to Graham. But I could very easily be swayed. I love Dina and the actress and the Tessa and Mariah- I am all for it -even if they just become close friends- would love some more scenes where the two converse and have a real friendship. I wish Ashley would be given something romantically- and Ravi is being wasted-I find him very attractive and his character is so great. The show has kind of bored me the past few months but all that seems to be changing lately. I like Juliet, too and people hate on her non-stop but I like her and the whole story is interesting to me.

I like Adams as well. This part of your comment really made me laugh:

“… that got me suspended from grade school when the teacher kept me after school and I told her that perhaps she should focus on her own life and the troubles in her marriage.”

Thanks Barbara- yes, 4th grade. I suffered for that, but the look on her face-priceless!


hey one of my favorite TNA WRESTLER ALL TIME ON THE Y AND R SO COOL they should keep him on as ABBY NEWMAN’S NEW LOVE INTERESTED it would be so cool

I am not a fan of this type of thing for two reasons–

1. If the part was necessary to the scene then by “hiring” a celebrity to do it, they prevent some poor actor a chance to get a day role on a soap and perhaps get their union card in the process– but with a stunt casting, the network most likely doesn’t pay the person and they get all this free PR with it– so I get why the brass does it that way, but it would be nice if they were helping to create jobs, not rob them from people.

2. If the part is not necessary to the scene and they are writing a “part” in to the show just so the person they want to feature has a role, it is a waste of air time,. The scene never feels organic to the story, it feels like a commercial which basically is what it is. So as a soap fan whatever they are promoting I stay away from

Never cared for him on Big Brother or TNA. BUT, I give the guy credit, he keeps pounding away, looking for THAT role! Great body! Dont mind the stunt casting because its only a bit part.

hi Timmm ..
Looks like a day, two at the most..

He’s just going to play a security guard at the Crushfest Music Festival.
He’s been in twelve movies. he can act.

THRILLED & HONORED to announce I’ll be on Daytime TV’s #1 SHOW, The LEGENDARY The Young and the Restless on Friday, August 4th!! DREAM. COME. TRUE. Here are some of the stories about it in Entertainment Weekly, Soap Opera Digest Official Page, Michael Fairman On-Air On-Soaps,

He is promoting Y&R .. that’s good for Y&R ..

Hey, if Ryan Peavy can do it, Jessie can to!

I can’t wait to see Pecs in action. I would watch Y&R just for him. I hope he becomes a recurring character.

Jessie is my favorite. I loved him on Big Brother and on TNA Wrestling. Way to go Y&R!! Best casting in a long time. Please make him a regular. I would watch just to see him.

I have always liked Sally Sussman as a writer and think that her talent for Y&R writing is vastly superior to the abilities of Chuck Pratt or Jean Passante. That being said, I HATE all of this “stunt” casting and cross promotion.

I am having a very hard time believing that Sussman, alone, is coming with ideas such as having Julie Chen trot through a scene with it have no significance plot wise but merely to let a Y&R character gush about the Talk. I’m really wondering if CBS (meaning executive Angelica whatever her last name is, who is mentioned too frequently on this site) is pushing (meaning, SHOVING) Sussman to do this stuff. If so, I really wish Angelica, CBS, and Sony would just leave Sussman alone and let her write a good show with no interference. I get the corporations want profits but, if they backed off and just let a veteran Y&R writer write, the show might be fantastic — spurring a ratings spike, bringing in the $$$, and making everyone happy.

These Julie Chen, “Mr. Pecs” and the bleach blonde “Housewife” need to GO!!!!

Mark Consuelos Celebrates One-Year Anniversary as Co-Host of ‘Live’ Alongside Kelly Ripa

Today, April 17th marks a full-year since Mark Consuelos (ex-Mateo, All My Children) took over the co-hosting duties of ‘Live” alongside his wife, and longtime co-host, Kelly Ripa (ex-Hayley, All My Children).

Consuelos replaced Ryan Seacrest who are six seasons decided to be back on the west coast full-time. For Consuelos, now having the opportunity to work off of Ripa as co-hosts has been something of adjustment for him, but viewers have been eating it up.

Live with Kelly and Mark has remained the No. 1 entertainment talk show on television over the past year, growing 3% in average total viewers to 2.23M per episode.  It is also the most-watched daytime talk show in the last year in key demos of women 18-49 and women 25-54. All of this, since the real-life marrieds teamed-up.

Speaking with Deadline, Kelly Ripa shared why the two are gelling on-screen, “I do think that there is something very possibly relatable about our relationship. We have disagreements like a normal couple, and we’re not afraid to let them unfold on the air and in front of America, and I think people find a lot of themselves in that.”

Mark weighed in how he has progressed as a host, and what he could improve at, sharing, “I’d like to get better at my interviewing skills. I’d like to get better at reading a teleprompter…I think I’m getting better at throwing to commercial. The other day in the middle of the show as we go to commercial, my sign off was ‘See you guys around.’ I mean, the show wasn’t over. The most obvious thing to say would be, ‘We’ll be back right after this.’ But I just said, ‘See you around.’ So we went to commercial and one of the producers (goes) ‘What was that?’ I don’t know… So for the next few sign offs, as a joke, I’d say ‘See you around.’ We got a kick out of it.”

Meanwhile, Kelly has given huge props to Mark, “I find Mark utterly compelling, really interesting, super funny, and he’s bold in a way like nobody else. He says what’s on his mind. If he’s thinking it, he says it.  I’ve done this a long time and oftentimes people will adjust their natural personalities to pander to what they think the audience wants to hear, and Mark will tell people what he thinks, and he doesn’t care if it’s not a popular opinion. It gives him an edginess that I think is really missing in the landscape today. Everybody’s so afraid to say anything, and Mark is unafraid to say exactly what he’s thinking.”

In a statement, Debra O’Connell, President News Group and Networks, Disney Entertainment shared, We could not be more thrilled with how Mark has seamlessly joined the show family as permanent co-host. His undeniable charisma and his and Kelly’s natural chemistry are evident as they deliver the laughs and smiles to our viewers each morning. We are incredibly proud of how Live has continued to evolve and that the audience is responding so enthusiastically.”

So, do you think Mark Consuelos is the best co-host his wife Kelly Ripa has ever had on ‘Live’? How would you say he is doing as co-host after one full year on the job? Comment below.
