I wish some better and more informative questions were asked in the Nadia interview. I feel like it was really rushed along and too short. I wish Michael Fairman had asked Nadia what it was like working with Jessica Leccia(as actresses)? And asked Nadia how the chemistry and vibe is different between actors when playing a same sex romance. And asked Nadia her opinions on the Ani and Lara romance on Venice? And also should have asked Nadia about her big scenes at the end of this season of Venice while asking what’s in store for Lara in season 3.… Read more »

Fun Podcast, Michael. It was jam packed with stars and to top it all off, Maurice Bernard. Are you kidding me? Loved it all. Michelle Stafford was a nice surprise. She had lots to talk about. Galen Gering is one of the most hansome men on TV. Carolyn is always fun, and I love her comic remarks.She is great on GH. And, it’s always fun to play the guessing game created byDillon Casey. I try to guess, but while I’m racking my brain for clues, you guys solve it. Also, Joe Lando was nice to hear from and all the… Read more »

RE: MAURICE BENARD’S INTERVIEW… i felt carolyn hennesy was a bit of a show-off, always coming back to her character and complimenting herself in scenes with maurice, rather than interviewing him on HIS character and what he wanted to say about sonny. also, what right does ms. hennesy have to criticize vanessa (not brenda, vanessa) and call her “angst-ridden” and “able to split into a million pieces”? whatever her thoughts, that’s not cool to say about a co-star who never, ever talks badly about the people she works with. truth is, the best scenes maurice ever had were with vanessa… Read more »
