    Not even Ron Carlivati can kill this show… but not for lack of trying.

        Hi Helen,
        RC saved GH, also
        GH was a breath away from being canceled and RC brought it back, saved it.

          GH still hasn’t recovered from the damage that Ron & his pal Frank inflicted on the show in February 2012. Bringing Steve Burton back was at least a step in the right direction, but as long as they keep forcing useless characters like Frodd “Baldwin” and Whiny Heiny (complete with fake ties to long time GH characters) they can’t truly recover.

            It’s not Ron C’s fault GH is still bad, GH was bad before and after he left. It’s been like 5 or 6 years now.

          I know that Ron wrote the show so that Michael could cut his ties with Sonny after he purposely shot A.J. General Hospital probably couldn’t wait to re-unite Sonny and Michael because the relationship returned to Michael calling him dad. What person in his right mind calls a person dad who kills his real father? G.H. writes Sonny with everyone gravitating to him with love on top of love. I’m almost at the point where I’m about to quit watching again because the show presents a mobster as a paragon of virtue and makes Julian , Franco, Ava , Valentin and anyone else considered bad people unworthy of love and
          friends. Plus, notice that all of Sonny’s children love him and all of Julian’s children hate him ; however, they love Sonny. Beyond unbelievable!

            That’s what I said, Boop. …..Michael has had a memory lapse for a couple of years. And, Carly is completely fine with it. It is incredible how Ava, Valentin, Julian, and others are maligned ( as they should be), while Sonny’s “sins” are always forgiven …..why? …..because he genuflects with our 0h-so-sad, defrocked priest? He cries, he shows emotion, he loves his father and family!!!! What a good guy! Such a loving, noble hear! “The head never rules the heart, but just becomes its partner in crime”. (Mignon McLaughlin. That’s Sonny in a nut shell. These writers pick and choose their heroes and princes…..Sonny will forever be Gallant, Sir Galahad, the purest knight…..no matter what!! He could kill the Pope, and the Church will absolve him of all sins….as long as Griffin stands by him.
            I can’t wait for Sonny and Margaux to capitulate into that bizzare attraction between them…..she’s, at least, his size. How many times will that be? I mean….Cheating, divorcing, getting back together again?

            The whole thing with AJ’s (third) death was just one example of Ron’s crappy writing, and his personal vendetta against Sean Kanan, for whatever reasons.

            Having Ava (another one of his pets) shoot AJ to save her own ass from being prosecuted for killing Connie Falconeri (who stupidly wrote the initials “AJ” in her own blood, which in itself was a ripoff of the mid 70s murder of Diana Taylor, but that’s a whole other story) would have been a reasonable story. But Ava’s $1.98 WalMart special gun jammed up when she tried to kill AJ and of course AJ retaliated by trying to strangle her. Sonny then walks in, admittedly not understanding the situation, and picks up Ava’s gun, which then fires the bullet already in the chamber. I honestly doubt that Sonny even actually pulled the trigger. In either case, there was no “cold blooded murder” on Sonny’s part, regardless of the past history between Sonny & AJ.

            Beyond that, AJ seemed to be recovering from his bullet wound in the hospital, and then suddenly died. More than likely somebody tampered with his IV, and that would have been Ava, not Sonny who had the motive to do that.

            Sean Kanan’s version of AJ was at least somewhat redeemable, as long as he stayed away from the booze. Never cared for the Billy Warlock version at all. Don’t know why ReRon made it personal with Kanan, but that’s why AJ was killed off yet again.

          • rebecca1

            January 11, 2019 at 12:16 pm

            Although I was partial to Sean Kanan, I grew to love Billy Warlock’s version, as well. AJ was always the underdog I rooted for and I’m still angry to this day that they took a long awaited step forward to right the wrong that the untouchable three (Carly, Sonny, Jason) did to AJ and then undid the whole thing by killing him and having Michael return to the fold as if AJ never existed.

            The story goes that Sean and Ron had it out over the story they gave AJ…that they once again made him a victim, had him accused, gave him a relationship (Liz) and then took it away, gave him the ridiculous relish story and had Tracy making fun of AJ’s weight (which, obviously, Sean being the bearer of said weight) wasn’t thrilled about. When he voiced his concerns they had it out, exchanged some public insult tweets and Sean was shown the door.

            So “new” writers get to kill off a vet both in character and actor. Wonder how Frank and Ron would have felt if new writers came in and decided to kill off one of the Buchanan’s.

          • Satan

            January 11, 2019 at 8:49 pm

            And of course the “ridiculous relish story” was all a vehicle for ReRon to rebrand his OLTL Manning pets as Frodd & the Twit (thanks to the Prospect Park lawsuit).

            I would have rather seen a legitimate power struggle for ELQ among the legitimate Quartermaines myself. Hell, there could be another one even now since Jason’s return, along with the existence of Drew & Oscar, should call for the re-shuffling of the whole deck as far as ELQ stock goes. Michael’s kid too, for that matter, though most of the mortals up there are still in the dark about that piece of the puzzle.

          • rebecca1

            January 12, 2019 at 1:18 pm

            They are decimating the core characters/families. I still say I like the show, but it’s just not GH. It’s another soap. I DID watch the vintage episodes this holiday season and they were such a great trip into the past. And, not that I needed a reminder, but the CAST was there; not the new characters that are part of the “new” show.

            As for the Quartermaine’s, they have systematically eliminated them. The recent episode with just Monica and Ned of the original Q clan (with Michael and Olivia) was just sad. I saw the ghosts of Lila, Edward, AJ, Alice, Alan, Tracy…can’t stop people from retiring but to get rid of AJ, Alan, Dillon, Skye, …to now kill off Oscar (which they had to do once they gave him his diagnosis…that was no soapy we-can-fix-this-disease) was just another blow to the future of the Q’s. Not to mention Drew already lost the two sons he thought were his, now they take away the son that IS his.

            And let’s not even get into the atrocity of Michael completely forgiving Sonny and Carly for everything AJ and taking back the Corinthos name. I can only hope that Michael stays with Monica in the Q house to raise his son, that Monica gets hit with a “what-the-F-have-I-been-smoking when I allowed Carly and Sonny to enter this house (AJ’s family house…) and that Michael’s future visits with his parents are somewhere other than the Q’s. Sonny and Carly should’t be allowed to step foot in it.

            But of course ass-kisser writers who for some reason can’t deny Laura Wright and Maurice will probably have them inherit the Q mansion before too long.

            Sickening.

          • Celia

            January 13, 2019 at 6:26 pm

            You’re right about that, rebecca…..Michael is THE direct Q heir, if I’m not mistaken. Sarcasm aside; it’s not so far-fetched.
            Monica is the resident lady of the manor; but that could change, upon the whim of the writers…..or if Leslie is “pushed” into retirement.
            Michael could very well move his mother and her lackey in the Q mansion. How about Jason and Sam?
            Imagine all of them living under one roof?! Entertaining!!

            January 11, 2019 at 12:26 pm

            that AJ /whatever his mane is walked out of GH not giving enough notice to write him out in any other way (quickly) as was done..
            I liked he was killed lol

          • rebecca1

            January 12, 2019 at 1:21 pm

            You didn’t “know” AJ, su. That’s the bottom line. You can like or not like whichever character you choose, but you’re not speaking from a place of history or character familiarity. And he didn’t “walk out.” It was “suggested” he do so. Meaning, they gave him no choice. Which was disgusting. He’s part of the history of the show; not Ron and Frank. They should have respected his character’s history, Sean Kanan’s role on the show which longtime fans remember dating back decades ago. They wouldn’t be thrilled if OLTL had survived and new writers decided to just get rid of one of the Buchanan’s out of spite.

    Wonderful news. As far as I am concerned Days is number one in my book.I never miss and episode and I never will. Glad to see Eve back now bring back Vivian and that will make me happy.

    • Satan

      January 9, 2019 at 9:23 pm

      Eve isn’t back. That abomination is not Eve Donovan and she never will be. As far as Vivian goes, we know she survived her alleged shooting by Kate, and was in the same warehouse where Jack & Elvis were brought back from the dead. So we can assume she will turn up eventually. As long as Louise Sorel is available…. no need for another horrible recast in that part. (ReRon would like nothing more than to give another job to one of his OLTL pets)

    What ever happened to Gabby? She use to be so nice now she is well the devil herself. I hope Julie does open her mouth and says something to the police about Gabby. She has turned into a real a-hole. Sorry about that but that is the way I feel.

    • blake

      January 10, 2019 at 5:27 pm

      I feel the same way Carol, seems most people do. The actress who plays Gabi contact is up in April so she may not resign since she’s on some prime time show, here’s hoping!

      • Carol

        January 10, 2019 at 11:53 pm

        I did see that she is in a Lifetime movie and believe she plays a killer unless I am wrong since they didnt actually show the complete clip of her.From what I saw she is worse then Gabby. That is where x Days stars seem to end up in a Lifetime movie. However Kate Mansi was in a couple of them and believe me she isnt a angel either. Get this the guy who plays Ben for some reason I cannot think of his name well he played a serial killer in a movie It was called stalked by a reality star very good movie. So perhaps that is where the actresss who plays Gabby is doing making movies for Lifetime.

    • Boop

      January 10, 2019 at 8:56 pm

      Gabby has always been a snake.

      • Celia

        January 13, 2019 at 1:16 pm

        Yup….something else I’ve always maintained. Gabi has had her eye on Chad since forever…tried her best and worst to get her hooks into him…..And, she did ; for a while, anyway….

    Thank you NBC, for renewing Days. No one stays dead in Salem, please bring back Vivian and Ivan her sidekick. Also bring back Bo Brady and LeAnn Hunley as Anna Dimers

    • Carol

      January 9, 2019 at 3:27 pm

      That is what I say bring back Vivian and her sidekick they made us laugh at times.

      January 9, 2019 at 9:26 pm

      Hi, Claudio,
      Happy New Year…..I was just telling Patrick that Vivian MUST be alive……that would add the cherry to the renewal.
      Would Peter ( Bo) come back? Imagine THAT love triangle!! I’d love to have Anna back, as well….Roman needs a love life!!….And, Carly Manning—–adore her… There are so many to mention. Melanie is another character—-and, if Casey Deidrick would resume the role of Chad ( when Flynn departs?), then, all’s well in Salem!!

    Great news for the cast, crew and fans. There are a few things I would love to see in the coming year. First of all, the return of Steve Johnson. Second, the redemption of Gabi. Third, a big love story for Kate. Fourth, the return of Stephanie and Joey. Last, a few new sets, something new other than Horton Town Square, the park, Brady Pub, the Horton living room and the Kiriakis living room. I would like to see Kayla’s house (where they lived when Ava was on the show). I love Ben and Ciara, Jennifer and Jack, and am hoping a front-burning storyline for Hope not acting crazed over Ben. Keep Victor and Maggie, Doug and Julie front and center.

    It’s amazing news. I also feel we got the renewal even earlier this year, so that is a relief. But now the priority should be to re-sign Stephen Nichols and ask him to come back to Days.

    it’s staggering to know the catapult the accolade the fan rejoice @DAYS is celebrating

    Be still mine heart!! Best news…..
    Looking forward to another year of excellent producing, storytelling and acting!!
    I just wish TPTB would wave their magic wand and turn Xander into an Ok guy; if not a good one.
    Xander could be the hero in demolishing Leo’s devilish plans. He could pretend to be his partner-in-crime and expose him for whom he is. Imagine the rewards from ‘unkie’ Vic!!

    • Patrick

      January 9, 2019 at 2:27 pm

      Xander is “wickedly” a good actor, as well, no? he’s a stand up guy.. who know’s he carries the show with…. so he takes it in stride that he’s asked to “disrobe” his shirt.. lately, plus… he was in a speedo today…

      I was laughing so .. at Greg Rikhaart’ Leo antics and schlepping drool over Xander. it was FUN’ny. so yeah, your idea that if Xander could right the Kirakis family with the unfortunate downfall of Leo… would be choice… altho, i’m so looking forward to OUR “Gloria” dancing in Salem. another Y&R mishap lands @DAYS !!! hoorah perhaps she will ignite and fire the denizen of Salem. Leo has really taken off on the show… perhaps “mother” will take the fall for his character redeem? maybe she knows Vivian ?????? it’s just going to be a heart tug to see her , reunite with (Kevin) Leo… one of the wickedest and most loving mother/son relationship. @DAYS WELCOMES Judith Chapman

      I’ve wanted Paul Tolfer to be reinvented because he has all the requisite fire for corporate business man about town… and to see if he can truly dance with the ladies… he’s an intrigue…because he keeps coming back… so that in itself is keeper

      • Celia

        January 9, 2019 at 9:14 pm

        I love everything you wrote, Patrick…..every idea is en pointe.
        I love Xander—what a sight!! HOT!!
        Agreed—the fact that Tolfer keeps making an appearance is very telling. He’s not just gorgeous; he’s one amazing actor to boot. I can watch him all day long!! And, the interaction between Xander and Leo was priceless—there’s a definite connection; not sexually—but something!! Brothers?? Hmmmm…. Vivian is his mother? LOL….too much sisterly/brotherly love??
        Greg is amazing!! He could very well be “sanctified” along with Xander. ….I had no idea Greg had that comedic gene in him, LOL…..I’m loving it all—Days is on fiya!!
        Gloria—yeah—miss her as much as I do Paul (Doug Davidson)….
        You know, Patrick, I think Vivian has risen—-I hope so, anyway. It would be fantabulous if “Gloria” and Vivian were sisters?? Imagine that—-add Kate to that scene and we have a Coven!!

      January 9, 2019 at 5:35 pm

        Hmmmmm- I like that, Jimmy. Do you think Kate will be ‘good’, again? LOL……this charecter has had continuous ebbs and flows—-back and forth; like a pendulum between good and evil. Which way will she swing next?

Kristian Alfonso Departs Days of our Lives After 37 Years

In a bombshell announcement, Days of our Lives enduring and ever-popular star, Kristian Alfonso (Hope Williams) has decided to make her exit from the NBC daytime drama series after more than 37 years in her role.

Kristian made her debut as a teenaged Hope Williams in 1983 and quickly rose to popularity and became soap-famous; along with her on-screen romance to Bo Brady then played by Peter Reckell. Together as one of soaps most all-time popular duos and separately, Alfonso has remained one of soap opera’s most notable performers.   There were only two times throughout her time in Salem, that Kristian took breaks from the show; during one of them she starred on CBS’s Falcon Crest.

According to Deadline who broke the news; in a statement to the outlet, Alfonso shared, “I feel blessed and honored to have been invited into people’s homes for over three decades. However, it is now time for me to write my next chapter.”

And it appears its already a wrap for Alfonso, who will not be returning to the series when the show is planned to return to production in the fall and come early September.

Kristian added:  “I will not be returning to Days when it resumes production in September.  I’ve already filmed my last episode several months ago.”

In a heartfelt post on her Instagram account, the actress gave special thanks to the late Betty Corday (mother of DAYS EP Ken Corday), and of course, her millions of fans who loved her as Hope throughout her time on the soap.  You can read it in full below.

B&B’s Supervising Producer, Casey Kasprzyk Shares: “Just Finished Viewing Our First Produced Episode Since Starting Production Back Up!”

In a tweet late on Thursday, the supervising producer of The Bold and the Beautiful, Casey Kasprzyk, shared his enthusiasm at completing the first major hurdle for the soap going back into production during the COVID-19 pandemic.

Showing a viewing copy on disc of the first new episode produced for B&B in months, Casey said: “Just finished viewing our first produced episode since starting production back up! So proud of Team Bold & Beautiful. Great shows airing soon”

The disc had airshow number #8321 on it, and a question mark as to when it will make it to air.

The fact that The Bold and the Beautiful is the first daytime drama to get one new episode completed is a step forward amidst the spike in COVID-19 cases in Los Angeles County and the state of California.

Now soap fans will have to wait and see if General Hospital and The Young and the Restless begin their productions in the middle of July; as last projected by both series, or if there will be further delays due to the ongoing crisis for the safety of everyone involved at the shows.

So, excited to learn Casey’s news that there is a new episode of B&B on the horizon for viewers to see? Comment below.
