Another fabulously fun podcast! Thanks Michael, Carolyn and Christian!

I enjoyed the podcast especially the talk about New Orleans. I just moved down there in February and I love it. It would be great if Carolyn and any of of the other soap actors decided to have a fan or benefit event down here. I would definitely come!

A FANTASTIC podcast. I am so proud to be a LuRe fan and so proud that we hit our $15,000 goal for Dr.’s without Borders. It was great to hear from both Terri and Melissa. Can’t wait till the next one. Thanks Michael, Carolyn and Christian.

What a fun packed podcast, Michael. It was loaded with great features and great guests. Loved Christian as a guest host. It was very interesting to hear about his early days on TV soaps. It wa also meaninful when he talke about his father and late brother. I’m a big fan of Christian and respect his talent so much. Terry Columbino was fun to have on, especially her views on the ending of ATWT. The last few episodes she has been on with the transplant and all, she has given a solid performance. So, kudos to her. Melissa returning to Days is wonderful. I only wish Matthew Ashford was coming, too. The trivia test Dillon gave you three was fun. I think even I knew some of the Dallas answers. Carolyn is so glib and so knowledgeable and creative in her own right. So, I think you have a great group of stars on, Michael. I would love to see Christian come back for another hosting gig. Will look forward to your next podcast,…..

Christian & Carolyn are so witty & hilarious on this podcast. 🙂 Seeing them onstage would really be a total treat! 🙂

Fun podcast. C-hosts were funny! Carolyn wants her character hooked up with Brenda- LOL!
Great to hear from Melissa Reeves. I remember her farewell scene with Frances Reid in 2006- very touching. I thought the same thing, they will never do a scene together again on Days.
Hoping they don’t kill Jack off and put Jennifer in a triangle.

Dianeda!!! HILARIOUS. Love these podcasts.

Jon Lindstrom and Cady McClain Announce They Have Ended Their Marriage

After much speculation, General Hospital’s Jon Lindstrom (Kevin) and Cady McClain (ex-Jennifer, DAYS, ex-Rosanna, ATWT, ex-Dixie, AMC et al) have officially confirmed and announced they have gone their separate ways and have ended their marriage.

For months on social media, it was clear that the two were seemingly apart, not appearing pictured in any of each others posts.

Now, on a mutually shared Instagram post, Jon and Cady made an official statement on the status of their relationship, beginning with “Cady and Jon here. We are taking this opportunity to make a short statement about our relationship status. It may be obvious to some based on our posts that we’ve taken some time apart. After serious consideration we have decided that our goals have been taking us in different directions and to end our marriage.”

As to the future, Jon and Cady explained, “We remain friends and wish each other every happiness. As people who work in the public eye, it can be difficult to have a private life. Regardless, we ask for your kind consideration in this matter.”

Jon and Cady met when they both appeared on As the World Turns, he as Craig Montgomery, and she as Rosanna Cabot. After four years together, the couple decided to get married in 2014.

Share your well-wishes for Jon and Cady’s separate futures as they ask for privacy on this matter in the months ahead via the comment section below.

Richard Roundtree, ‘Generations’, ‘ATWT” and ‘Shaft’ Star, Dead at 81

Motion picture and television leading man, Richard Roundtree, has passed away at the age of 81. The actor, best known for his role in the iconic film Shaft, and its sequels, died from complications from pancreatic cancer on October 24th in his home in Los Angeles.

In a statement, Roundtree’s manager, Patrick McMinn shared, “Richard’s work and career served as a turning point for African American leading men in film. The impact he had on the industry cannot be overstated.”

During his extensive credits and career, Roundtree made two stops to two daytime soap operas. In 1990 till 1991, Roundtree played Dr. Daniel Ruebens on the defunct NBC soap opera Generations. He later appeared on As the World Turns from 2002-2003, taking on the role of Oliver Travers, the father to T. Marshall Travers played by Lamman Rucker.

Roundtree’s leading lady on Generations, Jonelle Allen took to her Facebook upon learning the news of the death of her former castmate and friend, expressing: “My Leading Man on Generations. I Am Very Sad. My Condolences To Your Family. Dearest Richard Roundtree.”

In a subsequent post, Allen shared a photo of their Generations’ characters, Daniel and Doreen about to lip-lock. Jonelle stated, “In the scene with him I kept thinking: ‘Shaft is about to kiss ME!!!’ Thank You.”

On Generations, Roundtree’s character of Daniel Reubens was a brilliant doctor, who was accused of killing someone by causing an explosion at a lab in 1974. He and his daughter, Maya, then went “underground” for the next 15 years. Maya was played by Viveca A. Fox.
