Honestly! Who wants a brand new family, when OLTL had a beautiful new family in the making – aka KISHIERRA – but decided to throw her overboard…

I thought 6 weeks after the KISH KILL my anger would have lessened, but not so.

#ABCFail all over again!

So OLTL got rid of Kish (and the Kishierra family) for budget reasons (or “because they didn’t resonate with mainstream” reasons, or whatever reason they have this week for axing Kish), but now they all of a sudden have the money to bring on a whole new family, not to mention several newbies that have been added recently after Scott, Brett, SC, Daphne Duplaix, etc. were unceremoneously DUMPED by OLTL! I totally agree …… who in the hell wants another brand new family in Llanview when they had one of the most beautiful families they could have ever wanted with Kish and Sierra, but decided to run them out of town (and lost thousands of viewers in doing so).

I guess they didn’t “fit the mold” to live in bigoted KLANVIEW so they tossed them away like yesterday’s garbage. Too bad too, because Oliver looked 100% better in his police uniform than Brody does, and Kyle looked 100% better in his doctor’s coat than Greg does. AND, nobody on the show even comes close to being as cute as little Sierra Rose. Yes, OLTL tossed away the most beautiful family they could ever hope to have on the show. SOOOOOO MUCH POTENTIAL THERE.

As far as I am concerned, KLANVIEW can have its 2-time rapist, Ford-ho, Langston-ho, shacked-up teens, illegitimate babies, incestuous relationships, 30+ year-old “teenage” wannabe, whiney pathetic Marty, pathetically horrendous Gigi (the bimbo with no talent at all), and her chosen one, WRECKS, the former son of Roxy who is now just a human spud conceived via Emmaculate Conception and has no parents, etc, etc.

What I wonder is, what’s next for Klanview? Will Cris make Layla ride in the back of the LIMO when they go to the prom together? Will Layla have to drink from the water fountain designated for “blacks only” at school. Will Layla even be allowed to participate in the same activities as the white kids at the prom or even be allowed to dance next to the white kids?

How much you wanna bet that new family coming to Klanview will be LILY WHITE and totally HETEROSEXUAL!!

Yes, I am a middle-aged, white, heterosexual married female and I want my gay couple (Kish) back and more ethnic diversity on the show! As far as Gigi goes, she should just go back to McDonald’s and flip hamburgers for a living because she is no actress and is about as interesting as watching paint dry. JMHO

GH’s Maurice Benard Memoir Available Now For Pre-Order

One of the most highly-anticipated autobiography’s, Maurice Benard’s (Sonny Corinthos, GH) Nothing General About It, is set for release on April 7th of 2020.  But now according to the book publisher, HarperCollins, you can pre-order your copy of the riveting real-life story of Benard now by heading on over to Amazon  to make your purchase.

According to the log lines and publisher notes: “In Nothing General About It, Maurice looks back to his youth in a small town and his tenuous relationship with his father. He describes how his bipolar disorder began to surface in childhood, how he struggled to understand the jolting mood swings he experienced, and how a doctor finally saved his life. For years Maurice was relentless in his goal to be a successful actor. But even after he “made it,” he still grappled with terrifying lows, breakdowns, and setbacks, all while trying desperately to maintain his relationship with his wife, who endured his violent, unpredictable episodes. Maurice holds nothing back as he bravely talks about what it was like to be medicated and institutionalized, and of how he learned to manage his manic episodes while on the set of GH. 

HarperCollins

Nothing General About It is also an incredible love story about an enduring marriage that demonstrates what those vows—for better, for worse, in sickness and in health—truly mean. Maurice also pays tribute to the community that has been there for him through thick and thin, and ruminates on the importance of both inherited and created family.”

The ratings are out for the week of September 2nd through the 6th and it was NBC’s Days of our Lives that was the only daytime drama series to gain in total viewers and households.

That week featured the debut of One Life to Live icon, Robin Strasser in her debut on DAYS as Vivian Alamain replacing Louise Sorel.

DAYS topped General Hospital for the week moving into third place adding +82,000 total viewers, while GH hit a new low losing – 143,000 viewers, as well, the CBS Daytime series of The Young and the Restless and The Bold and the Beautiful also lost total viewers … -189,000 and -120,000 for the ratings period.
