Nelson Branco's new weekly "Soap Opera Unscensored"!

Suds Report journalist, Nelson Branco is back in an all new platform for his infamous columns featuring a weekly roundup of the hottest news in soaps, along with stories, interviews, humor, gossip and analysis.

Each Friday or Monday fans get download his new E-book version of his column called,  Soap Opera Unscensored.  The cost is $1.99, but Branco hopes to make it a subscription based feature in the very near future.

Branco stated about his new venture, “I’ve been getting a lot of feedback from readers saying how much they missed my Suds Reports, etc, and urged me to re-imagine my columns somewhere else. And since I’m still on the receiving end of a lot of news and gossip, I decided to not throw it all to waste. Thanks to the technology out there, I’m able to publish it myself and have Soap Opera: Uncensored distributed to multi-media formats. My first issue sold remarkably well; way above my expectations and without any promotion… so I’m very happy. I’m also in the process of publishing several soap opera-related books so stay tuned!”

Nelson could have so much more promise if he wouldn’t be bashing others that cover soaps. His comments towards Daniel Goddard and Goddard’s fans were insulting. I think those that talk to him (i.e. Crystal Chappell) would be wise to look out for Nellie’s streak and fear his reactions. He’s quickly self imploding.

Who would pay money to read his smut? All the important news gets out eventually. I’d rather get my info a week later from an honest, reliable and well-intentioned columnist/journalist than him.

Nelson should take a page out of your playbook, Michael. While I find your reports positive and relatively unbiased, Nelson comes off as snarky and hateful, and it’s just a turnoff.

I’m sorry but i’m not paying for it either when i’m sure i already have read a lot of it already. I miss his TV Guide Canada column, that was always fun. Wish that was still going. It’s just not the same anymore.

Im not paying for a column especially when the comments are so biased and there are so few soaps left. No one covers the fact that Y&R is going the drain and JFP who killed the spirit of GH to make it a mob festival starring her friends did far worse than the rise in GH under a new producer. She is at it again bringing on her friends and divas and throwing out far superior talent in hordes. As with the talent that is leaving so am I. I disliked what Burton did on GH, duller than dull and… Read more »

Public Relations Exec & Former CBS Watch Guru, Jeremy Murphy, New Book with Special Nod to ‘Santa Barbara’ Avail for Pre-Order

Murphy, who spent 14 years at CBS where he the creator and editor in chief of the high-profile magazine, CBS Watch, later launched a successful career with countless clients in his boutique PR agency, 360 bespoke.  The agency is known for clients in the fields of luxury, the arts, fashion/ beauty, hospitality, travel, media, start-ups and entrepreneurs.  In fact, former Days and RHOBH star, Lisa Rinna beauty brand, Rinna Beauty, has been one of his clients.

In the log lines for this new book, available for pre-order from Simon & Schuster, it details: ‘Public relations’ snarkiest publicist Jeremy Murphy expertly chronicles his hatred, love, indifference, amusement, and scorn for the profession in F*ck Off, Chloe. From entitled millennials to surly reporters, obnoxious clients, and cumbersome, color-coded “trackers,” Murphy takes a scalpel and glass of Châteauneuf-du-Pape to the PR industry in a searing, hilarious, and pissy voice that his own psychiatrist finds “deeply concerning.” His collection of annoyances shed light on the industry’s idiosyncrasies, insanities, contradictions, and past due invoices, providing an illuminating window into the dirty world of public relations not even Xanax can help. Complementing the scathing prose are color-in illustrations by artist Darren Greenblatt, creator of the “Ugly Lives of Beautiful People” sketch series.’

Murphy told Michael Fairman TV as to why soap fans may want to check out the book: “Any Santa Barbarian will love this because it finally says what needs to be said: best.show.ever.”  Jeremy is in indeed a hard core Santa Barbara fan.

On a personal note, Michael Fairman shared: “I used to work with Jeremy when he was an editor-in-chief and commissioned me to write profiles of celebrities, and it was always a fun journey to collaborate with him. This new book spoofs PR, journalism, TV and media, in an honest, unapologetic, but hysterical way.”

To pre-order, F**k Off, Chloe click here and look for its release in store and everywhere in March of 2022.
