Interesting concept, looking forward to watching it.

It does sound interesting, but not as interesting as the goings on behind hotel-room doors ….such as today. Please forgive me for derailing, but I absolutely loved it!! I suppose one could see the hilarity in that. The insouciant, debonair air displayed by Julian was succulent, albeit I know he enjoyed every minute spent with Olivia. He is so ruggedly gorgeous…I loved him and Olivia together. Is this a start of something hot and meaningful? Her beauty and sex appeal has been kept under lock and key. I am so glad to be so pleasantly surprised by her delectable acting.… Read more »

hi
she is too far along to have a GH baby daddy..
she will go off on a great job or some such thing and then return less the bump..

the only one near the bump size, to be the daddy would be Sonny ahahaa..

Here, here, CeeCee!!!! I’m so gratified to know that I was not the only one to be absolutely delighted to see the new coupling of “Julivia!” Such fun!!!! And about time Mr. Jerome found himself a fabulous, foxy (and possibly extremely fertile) female to keep him away from that horrible, habitually-haranguing hag, Alexis. What could possibly be richer than the moment when that self-righteous, bust-baring broad had the nerve to excoriate her “babydaddy” (and his new comely squeeze…) for engaging in the exact same behavior which she just had???? I am soooo sick of that exhausting woman and her undeserved… Read more »

Hey, su. Wouldn’t that be something? Sonny…that’s funny.

I also enjoyed Julian and Olivia. I like how the writers are giving Lisa some comedic scenes. She is a beautiful actress, sexy-and shouldn’t be written into a corner as only Dante’s mother, Rocco’s grandmother, or Sonny’s old girlfriend. I have enjoyed her scenes with Wally and now William.

To me, Olivia and Julian just fit. As Phoebe from Friends said of Rachel, “She’s his (Ross’s) lobster.” Now I used to adore Alexis. The stuffy, Yuppie, buttoned down Yale Law School graduate who became all flustered when a bad boy tried to seduce her. Then she played that role again….and again…..and again until suddenly Alexis is in her fifties still playing the flustered, formerly repressed virginal attorney who has finally discovered not only her G spot but her cleavage. I mean, really, good for her —we viewers get that Alexis has discovered her Mojo but please give her a… Read more »

@Harry….To quote you, Sir—if I may—your character analysis of Alexis was “a thing of beauty.” Just so eloquent and spot on!!! In a myriad of ways, it reflects my likewise regards for her, yet sounds far, far better coming from a male perspective….most particularly since I am currently being excoriated by another frequent poster for my similar critiques of Ms. Davis.

I’m sorry Shay…but as we frequent the same posts I can’t but help notice that you’ve now “hopped around the board” alluding to our discussion whilst mentioning me in your thinly veiled manner. But at least this time I got a laugh. You’re comparing Harry’s feeling about Alexis with yours. Let’s revisit your descriptive above…which by the way is the tamer version of your other descriptives of her. And I quote, ” from that horrible, habitually-haranguing hag, Alexis.” And then you go on to call her “that self-righteous, bust-baring broad” You’re also sick of that “exhausting woman and her undeserved… Read more »

Love her too. I always enjoy seeing her. Alexis is one of my favorite characters. She can turn on a dime from neurotic and vulnerable to commanding powerhouse attorney…from mother hen to a playful flirt. Conflicted by her high moral standards and propensity for rough around the edges men…she always, eventually, takes the higher ground. Somehow thru it all Nancy manages tp play Alexis as ultimately lovable, dependable and loyal. Down to earth. Intelligent woman/actress. I’ll be curious to check out her show; whether it’s something I’d actually watch is debatable. I do hope though that somehow it creates enough… Read more »

So, in other words, you like her, you REALLY like her!!!! It’s funny how two people can harbor such polar opposite views of the same character, since as you already know, dear rebecca1, my regards for your precious Alexis are far, far less glowing, and certainly NOT brimming with your positive superlatives! In terms of this particular woman, I am simply appalled by her and confounded that anyone can find her to be worthy of admiration. Wardrobe choices and physical/age-appropriate considerations aside—-yes, I have refrained from discussing them especially for you!— there are so many other facets of Ms. Davis… Read more »

Well, dear Shay. She had a child, Sam, during a teenage tryst. That hardly makes her immoral…it makes her human in an all-too (most likely common ) situation. She had Molly with her then-husband, Rick..and she was crazy about Sonny when she spent her night with him. As the old adage goes…you can’t help who you fall in love with. However, she manages to convince herself that she can change these men to the good, and when she can’t she breaks her own heart by breaking up with them. That doesn’t make her a bad person lacking morality, it makes… Read more »

Well, rebecca1, at least we can agree about Carly! One must celebrate the small victories in life, n’est ce pas??? By the way, hope you received my response to the “hag” post….it didn’t materialize online, but as long as it made its way to you, I suppose that’s all that matters. If not, I shall attempt to resend it…..

Lol, Shay…yes. We must hold on to the small ties that bind us ALS Carly and AJ. No, I didn’t get your hag, lol, retort. Can’t wait. Ya. And I had a fabulous answer to your other post to me with your indignation regarding my interpretation of your viewing/character preferences. I must say my reply quite fully matched and exceeded your observations but unfortunately, it too, went onward to oblivion. Still trying to iron out the kinks I’m my iPad so though I kinda figured out how to copy and paste on this thing it just didn’t save. Sigh…what a… Read more »

Okay, rebecca1, how about if I replace “hag” with “harpy?” Is that better? I’m endeavoring to contemplate other suitable “h” words that capture my perceived essence of Alexis whilst at the same time keeping the alliterative flow going…so, yes, I believe harpy fills the bill. I can definitely go with that one…..just for you, I shall edit my previous post! LOL…..As for my praise of Harry’s work of verbal art, I was simply showing my appreciation for our oft- shared view of Alexis, which he so ably and beautifully expressed….even if it were of a much kinder and gentler nature… Read more »

You can alliterate to your heart’s content. Unfortunately, none of your carefully placed words describe Alexis. It might be better to study human nature to have a better understanding of this woman’s psyche. You can then apply that creative flair to accurately describe the character…or Sabrina’s for that matter. This is not to say you don’t have a right to dislike a character (s) , but at least let the reasons be for something they are or have done. So far I haven’t seen that in your admittedly superlative writing.

Shay

Of course I was being “tongue-in-cheek” with that response, rebecca1, but what it really all comes down to is the fact that you and I have vastly divergent perspectives of this character, and nothing is ever going to change that. Whereas you assign noble and admirable traits to Alexis, I simply do not, never will and believe you me, I am not alone. Long before I began posting here, I often mused with female friends over various aspects of GH—I still do—and quite frankly, amongst all of these highly intelligent, educated and tasteful women is/was the consensus that Ms. Davis… Read more »

Shay…let me start by saying that you have managed to annoy me, piss me off, offend me…and yet you have succeeded in reigning me back in to our little friendly fire…and I’m okay with that! I much prefer out verbal sword fight that somehow always manages to wind up in a truce. I think that’s a testament to both of us. With that said, I don’t appreciate people playing both sides of the fence so to speak, so if we’re going to be frenemies, don’t say one thing to my face, so to speak, and another to my posted back!… Read more »

I think Nancy is multi-talented! I still remember Alexis as “Eddie’s Angel.” She brings such comedic genius to her scenes. Alexis’ scenes with her on-screen daughters always come across as genuine. She seems to exude such admiration and respect for the girls/women that play her daughters on-air. I also love her scenes with Julian and Diane. Nancy is just a class-act-all the way; and she is never afraid to voice her opinions!

CeeCee

I do agree, dmr. Nancy does seem to have that sardonic, comedic ingredient about her. Her quips, when delivered from left field are truly funny. Nevertheless, her mode of dress is passé and inappropriate. I can’t see her playing footsies with either Julian or Ned. JMO.

Stars React to Alec Baldwin Fatally Shooting Cinematographer Halyna Hutchins & Injuring Director, Joel Souza, In Prop Gun Mishap On Set of ‘Rust’

UPDATED: Over the last 24 hours, the entertainment world has been stunned, by the horrific incident that took place on the set of the western drama Rust, while it was shooting scenes in New Mexico.

What is known is that Alec Baldwin (Ex-The Doctors, Knots Landing) discharged a prop gun that killed Director of Photography, Halyna Hutchins and injured director, Joel Souza.  The film also stars Frances Fisher (Ex-Edge of Night) and Jensen Ackles (Ex-Days of our Lives). Baldwin is also a producer on the film.

According to Variety, the prop gun contained a “live single round,” according to an email sent by IATSE Local 44 to its membership.

On Friday, Alec Baldwin made a statement via Twitter on his Hilaria and Alec Baldwin Foundation Twitter feed, expressing: “There are no words to convey my shock and sadness regarding the tragic accident that took the life of Halyna Hutchins, a wife, mother and deeply admired colleague of ours. I’m fully cooperating with the police investigation to address how this tragedy occurred and am in touch with her husband, offering my support to him and his family. My heart is broken for her husband, their son, and all who knew and loved Halyna.”

Yesterday, The Sante Fe Sheriff’s Departments originally shared that “Hutchins, 42, and Souza, 48 were shot when a prop firearm was discharged by Alec Baldwin.  Ms. Hutchins was transported, via helicopter, to University of New Mexico Hospital where she was pronounced dead by medical personnel. Mr. Souza was transported by ambulance to Christus St. Vincent Regional Medical center where he was undergoing treatment for his injuries. This investigation remains open and active. No charges have been filed in regard to this incident. Witnesses continue to be interviewed by detectives.”

This morning, Frances Fisher revealed in a twitter conversation with Patricia Arquette, that director Joel Souza had been released from the hospital.  Meanwhile, photographs of a distraught Baldwin emerged following the shooting.

The news of the Baldwin prop gun incident, isn’t the first time something like this has happened. Jon-Erik Hexum was killed on October 18, 1984, on the set of the TV show Cover Up when he accidentally shot himself in the head with a gun loaded with blanks. Then, in 1993, Brandon Lee, the son of martial arts legend Bruce Lee, died from a prop gun accident on the set of The Crow by a cast member.

As the news made its way through the entertainment community and mainstream news, several soap stars shared their reactions to the fatal shooting accident.

General Hospital’s Jon Lindstrom (Kevin/Ryan) expressed: “Feeling so sad for everyone involved in the tragedy on the #RustMovie set. I do know the film was staffed with experienced, thoughtful professionals. Please, let’s wait until we have the facts. Nothing positive will come from passing judgement or casting aspersions before then.”

General Hospital and Dynasty’s Emma Samms (Holly, Fallon) shared on her friend Jon-Erik Hexum’s death: This AWFUL tragedy on #Rust is unfathomable to me. If all on-set protocols were being adhered to, how, on earth, could it have happened? After what happened to Brandon Lee and my dear friend Jon-Erik Hexam, the firearm protocols became incredibly strict. I was told (when I was with him at the hospital afterwards) that Jon-Erik had been working with a completely empty gun all morning. A blank (still very dangerous) was loaded and then immediately there was a delay. Exhausted, he was allowed to fall asleep – loaded gun in hand. hey woke him, but there was immediately another delay. Jon-Erik put the gun to his head, forgetting it now contained a blank, (because he had just woken up) and jokingly pulled the trigger. He was not the kind of person to play around with a loaded gun. #fortherecord”

We will continue to post reactions and update this story.

What are your thoughts on the fatal shooting on the set of Rust? Comment below.  How can this not happen again, so everyone is safe in this working environment when ‘dangerous’ props are called for or used to make a movie or a TV show?

Courtney Hope Gets Marriage Advice From Her Y&R Co-Stars Ahead of Her Wedding to GH’s Chad Duell

This weekend, The Young and the Restless Courtney Hope (Sally), is set to walk down the aisle and marry the love of her life, General Hospital’s Chad Duell (Michael).  The nuptials are to take place this Saturday, October 23rd according to the wedding planner Zola.

Ahead of the popular soap duo’s vows, Courtney asked some of her Y&R co-stars advice, but as their characters in a very cute Instagram video on The Young and the Restless IG account with the accompanying text: “Marriage advice you don’t normally hear… as told by the #YR stars 😉 A special thank you to our real-life bride-to-be @TheCourtneyHope for asking! 😂”

Participating are: Peter Bergman (Jack), Amelia Heinle (Victoria), Michelle Stafford (Phyllis), Mishael Morgan (Amanda), Christian LeBlanc (Michael, Eileen Davidson (Ashley), Elizabeth Hendrickson (Chloe), and Christel Khalil (Lily).

In terms of advice, Amelie Heinle told Hope, “As Victoria Newman, I would say that you need to marry a man that is not going to be around for very long, and especially if he has a lot of money.”

Christel Khalil offered up some Lily marital suggestions: “Don’t let your husband let you think that he’s dead and that you’ve slept with a ghost!”

As for Courtney and Chad, the couple had been dating for five years, and this past Valentine’s Day, they became engaged.

Please share your well-wishes to Courtney and Chad as they embark on their life together via the comment section below, and let us know what you think of the marital advice given to Hope from the citizens of Genoa City.
