In the episode tomorrow, Alexis is less than thrilled to find Kristina’s reality show “Mob Princess” cameras rolling when she wakes up.

I am looking forward to this. I missed the first showing of “Mob Princess” (what day was it?). I can’t think of a worse way for a child to get back at her parents than invading their privacy and humiliating them like this. Nancy’s live commentary should make it all the more entertaining.

Why tweet when general hospital is on? Why not do it after it’s over. The last thing I want to do is keep my eyes on other things while the soaps are on. I need to see this reality crap Christina is going to pull on her parents before I make a comment but I will say this again, There is no way a 18 year old daughter of mine that I will allow to blackmail me into taking over my home, her 18 year old ass would be out the door while I am holding the door open I would be preaching to her to get a job no more allowance, Who is supporting her now?

Today when Alexis heard that Sam lost the baby, If I was Alexis I would have grabbed that camera that moron was pointing at her and hit that idiot over the head with it. Off to a bad start with this reality garbage.

This is a really interesting plot twist if it is not carried on too long. Christina almost died because of Sonny, any number of times (most notably when he tried to kill Johnny with the car bomb). Alexis continues to support Sonny any # of ways. Ironically, he always gets on trial for crimes he didn’t commit, but she clearly knows he is guilty of crimes as bad or worse. Christina genuinely has reasons for her anger and blackmail that go far beyond the usual kids (wouldn’t having your father point blank shoot an unnamed cop in the chest even if he didn’t turn out to be your half brother do a number on you?)
That they all still love each other is very soapy and very human. But it only remains human if there are some consequences for people’s crimes and behavior.
The reality show is a neat device for both playing out those issues of guilt and forgiveness–Alexis is a mob lawyer and that she only thinks of that when she is embarrassed to have that said on tv might get her character back to the smart conflicted woman with integrity that she used to be.
If Sonny is to stay on this show and have a role beyond setting violence in motion, then at some point he has to face what is evil about his life that he doesn’t want to see the light of day. I think his redemption if possible is more likely to come if he can see that Connie’s “crimes” are in reaction to his violent life and not just from craziness.
And by showing how painful it is to have true sorry sensationalized, when the cameras kept rolling when they learned of Sam’s “tragedy”, Christina may have already learned a lesson, and maybe we as an audience can ask ourselves at what cost are we voyeurs to people’s real drama.
OLTL’s soap within a soap fraternity row was sheer entertainment, and the way it was revived toward the end of oltl’s run showed all the glories and absurdities of the genre.
This reality show within a soap has the potential to move character forward without the benefit of guns or car crashes. And it might be a context for commentary on our culture’s sick fascination with real people’s pain.

Listen to “Soap Nation Live! October 2018” on Spreaker.

If you missed Thursday night’s broadcast of Soap Nation Live! with Michael Fairman you can now listen to the replay right here in audio player above!

This episode was given to the gents in soaps as Michael welcomed his very special guests: The Young and the Restless Joshua Morrow (Nick Newman), Dancing with the Stars: Juniors and General Hospital’s Hudson West (Jake), and The Bold and the Beautiful, and One Life to Live and Dr. Quinn Medicine Woman favorite, Joe Lando (Judge Craig McMullen).

During this fun night of chat, Joshua weighed-in on the Shick wedding that went bust, when Sharon told Nick at the altar that she knows he had sex with Phyllis.  Morrow, who will celebrate his 25th year as Nick Newman in early 2019 chimed in what the future for the stat-crossed couple may hold, and how he has enjoyed showing Nick’s dark side of late, plus he revealed one scene he felt uncomfortable with that he would not play, the ladies over the years in Nick’s life, and when asked by a listener of his memories of the late, great Jeanne Cooper (Katherine Chancellor), Joshua shared some fun and poignant remembrances. He also addressed the status of Doug Davidson at the CBS daytime drama, and hopes that the writers will find a way to utilize the Y&R vet in the future.

Next, Hudson West’s joined the podcast where he gave listeners the inside scoop on what it has been like to be one of the 12 celebrity kids competing in the first-ever Dancing with the Stars: Juniors, which debuts Sunday at 8PMEST in a two-hour season premiere on ABC.  Hudson talked on how he has been learning the dance moves with his young pro dance partner and Dancing with the Stars pro mentor, how he deals with nerves before performing his dance routines and more.  General Hospital fans who know of Hudson’s Daytime Emmy-nominated performance of Jake Webber, Elizabeth and Jason’s son, got some interesting tidbits when he talked about working with Rebecca Herbst, Steve Burton and more, and how much he loves being on the show.

The final guest of the night was Joe Lando.  Prior to bringing Joe on the air, Michael played a classic clip from Megan’s death on One Life to Live from the 90’s, where Joe as Jake Harrison performed one of the saddest and most memorable scenes in soaps with his then acting partner, Jessica Tuck.  Joe then revealed when he was on Soap Nation Live that it has been over 20 years since he had heard the scene, and was still moved by it.  Lando who is now appearing as Judge McMullen on CBS’ The Bold and the Beautiful teased there could be a love interest around the corner for the judge, as well as some retribution for his ruling in the custody case of Will Spencer, because of a favor called in by Ridge.  Lando also talks about his time on the hit primetime series, Dr. Quinn Medicine Woman as Byron Sully, and shared more about his time on One Life to Live working with the likes of: Erika Slezak, Bob Woods, and Tuck.

Last, during out Game Show segment, a lucky caller won two VIP tickets to the Star Struck Fan Event Fall Festival in Alexandria, Virginia featuring members of the cast of Days of our Lives, as well as a Y&R goodie bag; which includes a personalizes autographed picture of Joshua Morrow, after answering correctly some Nick Newman trivia!
