A good body or a pretty face means nothing to me if there is not intelligence, humor, talent, personality, terrific faults, and depth behind the eyes of the individual. It’s a pity that , at least Gregory ( I am not familiar with the other two) seems to me to be little more than a blow-up doll. Trevor St. John, on the other hand, seems to encompass all of these things and they are visible behind his eyes. That, to me, is someone who is attractive. But then, I never claim to be part of the mainstream.

You say that David is nothing more than a blow-up doll…that he has no intelligence, personality or depth behind his eyes. I’ve known David for many years and he is one of the smartest, sweetest guys you could ever meet. You shouldn’t judge someone that you don’t know in real life….when in actuality, you only get to watch him on TV and get to see him “portray” someone that he is not…..I say, David should WIN!!!

Di

I agree with J! I find the comment of David Gregory being a ‘blow-up-doll’ ,insulting, and in poor taste. To make such false assumptions because of someone’s looks, is not only being careless, but the statement is compeletely baseless! David is a trained actor, who has a degree in music theatre. This is not someone who was just hired because of his good looks, on the contrary, he is also a talented actor and singer. I second the motion, David should win!!

You are certainly welcome to agree with J and to have your own opinion.
I believe my point was missed, but okay. As I said, best of luck to him and to you.

I was just musing that the phrase “Blow-up doll” is being imbued with meaning I haven’t given it. I meant “blow-up doll” not in the sexualized manner (I’m guessing it was mistaken due to the nature of these awards, but I’m just guessing) but in the way of placeholder, random young, sexy everyman, pane-of-glass way. This is more of a commentary on what the writers have created as a character than it is on the individual. In fact, I am neutral on David Gregory, and I will explain. The Ford are pretty much a plot device family created to develop story for the main families in Llanview. I have not seen any depth in any of them. Inez was played by Jessica Leccia, and she has been good in what I have seen her. Nate exists to create conflict between Todd and Dani, to make Dani act moronically, and to be disturbing because the actor is way too old for Kelley. James exists as an accessory to Starr, being hot (and jealous when necessary). Ford is nothing but a stereotype who is manipulated based upon what is needed. The role was designed for <>. I am neutral on David Gregory because he has not shown me anything else but what was written on the page. In another role he may be brilliant but I have yet to see it. In my opinion, the character is meaningless and boring. However, the actor has an opportunity to make me see something else, and I haven’t yet.
For example, Téa is often used as a plot device or is a background character. (try watching “Perfect Stranger” for a prime example, and especially the courtroom scenes at the end in which she has no lines and is not a focus. She is the only reason that horrible movie is worth watching, honestly) However, no matter what crap she is given, the eye is drawn to her like no actor I have ever seen. She makes even filler worth watching.
My point is, while David Gregory may do very well in a role that is written to have depth and meaning, I have not seen anything outside of what has been written as of yet. Therefore, I have not seen anything else from him. I am not making personal commentary on whether he is a nice person or whether he is a good friend because I have not seen anything outside the script.
Please feel free to comment on my statement, me personally, or not, as you wish.

Oops, the Fords should be plural and my bracket content disappeared: Young, sexy man with a good body.

The role of Ford is much more than a supportive 2-dimensional character. I would put him in the same class as that of Rex. He is a complex character that has much more depth than some of the other on the show. His transformation over the last 2 years is incredible, and Ron Carlivati has done a phenomenal job developing this character. With the hint of foreshadowing, Ford’s journery has led him to Jessica. It is not an accident that these 2 characters have been placed together. David Gregory has made Ford his own, and this is a credit to him as an actor.

J

Alexa,

With what you are saying….that David “hasn’t shown you anything else besides what he is given on the page” is because you don’t know him and/or seen him do anything else besides Ford, so how can he show you himself when he is playing someone else? Another good point that Di pointed out…the character of Ford was only created about 2 years ago…so in the entertainment business side of it…they could have gotten rid of his character easily and no one would had been upset by this, if he wasn’t a good actor. BUT, due to the fact that David took the role and made something out of it…they based other story lines and characters around his….he must be doing something right as an actor…wouldn’t you say?

Everyone is entitled to their own opinions and I respect that. I merely just think that you (alexa) were attacking David Gregory as a person and actor…instead of the character “Ford” (which I feel he does a great job at).

Thanks

I believe I characterized my response with “seems.” I am sure he is a lovely person; I am merely pointing out what he has made visible to me, nothing else. I wish him well, as I wish you well despite the fact that you just judged me.

David Gregory is much more than a pretty face, a great smile and a gorgeous body. He can play charming bad boy and sweet dad/brother/friend on OLTL. He is one of the main reasons I tune in. He’s also very fan-friendly, down to earth and a wonderful ambassador for the show. Best of the bunch. Deserves the Adonis this year – hands down.

all the guys are good looking but I prefer James Scott, his looks are amazing as well as his charm, intelligence, wit, kindness, respect for other actors and his fans. on top of all this he is so talented, every move he makes is awesome, he can change emotion with his eyes or body language. When he smiles its like a million lights go on and brighten up the room so for me he is Adonis.

If you go to the Adonis website you can click on each hunk. I’ve clicked on and saw that James was never a bottom 3 or 2. The other two guys are. I am sure James shall win his 5th “Adonis”.

ABC and PEOPLE’s ‘The Story of Soaps’: What Was Your Review Of It?

Tuesday’s night airing of ABC and PEOPLE’s two-hour special The Story of Soaps featured many notable daytime and primetime soap stars, past and present, clips from backstage to classic memorable moments, and some participants who were providing commentary on the erosion of the daytime soaps in our culture.  Still others, maintained and realized that everything today is serialized from the news we watch, to some of Netflix’s most binge-watchable series, and of course, the birth of reality-programming.

Throughout the airing of the special, The Story of Soaps was trending on Twitter and social media either at the #2, #3 or #4 spots for the entire duration of the broadcast presentation, and the cancelled and beloved All My Children was also at one point trending.

However, known soap writers, journalists, ardent fans, and actors of the genre, were all on Twitter last night live-tweeting their thoughts as the special went down, and there was definitely mixed reactions and reviews, when all was said and done.

What the special did not shy away from, but tackled, was Luke’s rape of Laura at the campus disco on General Hospital. and how that moment now, as Genie Francis (Laura), so eloquently put, would be considered as ‘date rape’ in our culture.  The series even included a pivotal moment where Laura addresses Luke (Tony Geary) about the rape years later, after helping Elizabeth (Rebecca Herbst) through her rape ordeal.

John Stamos (Ex-Blackie Parrish, GH) got a bevy of “Right On’s!” for his comment that the soaps do not get the credit that they deserve and clearly came through as one of the soaps greatest supporters, as did former The Doctors and Knots Landing star, Alec Baldwin.

However, throughout the two-hours, Andy Cohen’s commentary was thread throughout; mostly citing soap’s demise and the creation of reality-programming and his “Real Housewives” franchise, that the special touted as the new soap operas.  It continued on the narrative that people preferred to see real-life drama then made-up drama on a fictional soap.  And while, that has been a trend in American culture for decades, the commentary came off as often out of place in a celebration of the soaps; and bringing in a lot of negativity to the special that soap fans were tired of hearing.

ABC and PEOPLE's 'The Story of Soaps': What Was Your Review Of It?

In a lighting rod moment, Cohen stated: “I know Susan Lucci doesn’t agree with me, but I think that the Housewives have replaced soap operas because truth is stranger than fiction. Soaps became kind of unnecessary because you could do it with real people, and they’re writing the drama themselves.”

The special did also address the cancellations of All My Children and One Life to Live, (which many were not sure they were going to do – given this special was airing on ABC), where One Life’s leading lady and six-time Daytime Emmy winner, Erika Slezak (Ex-Viki) said what we all wanted to sa ywhen the ax fell on the towns of Llanview and Pine Valley, “People were horrified”.

Clearly, OJ Simpson and his murder trial and reality-programming were also given a chunk of time to show where the once mighty landscape of daytime soaps which once had 13 shows on the air, dwindled town to 4.  But, it would have been nice to see more time spent on how in this day and age, the people in this current landscape of the genre work so hard to get episodes done at an unbelievable pace, and how in that climate the performers still deliver gut-wrenching performances.
