QUEENS OF DRAMA 1-Hour Season Finale: Donna Mills Has Her Pitch Meeting & The Gals Are Pissed! Will There Be a Major Showdown? Where Is & What Happened To Hunter Tylo?

This Wednesday on the season finale of Pop’s Queens of Drama (8PMET/7PMCT), after Hunter Tylo (Taylor, B&B) took an untimely and unexpected fall to the ground during the ladies sizzle reel shoot for their new project, what is the upshot?

Apparently, not much has been known since that time.  Even over the weekend, as QOD star Donna Mills (Madeline, GH) spoke to Cameron Mathison on Entertainment Tonight, she revealed that no one has heard from Hunter!  While that part of the on-camera drama plays out, also look for a major on-camera showdown between the QOD cast and Mills!

First, during a photo shoot when everyone was supposed to be wearing black, Donna Mill shows up in red and the ladies are pissed! Later, when Donna pitches the QOD’s project to a network all by her lonesome and doesn’t include the gals … Lindsay Hartley, Chrystee Pharris, and Crystal Hunt find out about it  …  and blindside Mills during the all-important meeting!

Will everyone get along together in the end?  Will the “Queens” combust? Does anyone know what is going on with Hunter Tylo?  Watch a sneak peek preview after the jump, and Milsl on ET discussing the Tylo incident, and then let us know how you think the season finale will play out?  Will there be a major cliffhanger?

they’re not even trying to pretend that everything isn’t scripted down to the last breath. i wouldn’t mind if it was a good script, but it isn’t even that… so it’s neither real nor captivating. what’s the point?

Exactly! The show was terrible and none of these women are good actresses. They cant even play dramatized versions of themselves.

And lol at pretending Vanessa Marcil is still some big star or that the CW wants her or any of these ladies for their lineup.

They didn’t even show Hunter falling.

Does Vanessa return? What’s up with that?

As much as I love Donna and Lindsey, this has been PAINFUL to watch. All of the ladies come across as doing an impersonation of “RHOBH.” I have never understood why Vanessa Marcil is not a bigger star. I think she is stunning and loved her on “GH.” But, maybe now I know if this is a true representation of who she actually is in real life. I was actually embarrassed FOR her. I also wish Lindsey Hartley could somehow come back to “DOOL.” I LOVED her on “AMC.”

I watched the show once, because I love Vanessa Marcil and Lindsay Lohan. The show needs Jennifer Bassey ex Marion Amc. She would spice it up. Lol

Lol I meant Lindsay Hartley. My mistake. Lindsay Lohan is a train wreck.

Quite frankly none of those bitches have any talent except for Donna Mills. The rest aren’t “queens” of any kind. Every single one of them are negative nasty bitter girls with no chance at a career after soaps. And the majority of them are not even on soaps any more. I mean Passions? Please……..how many years has that been off the air now? All of them need to stop with their whining and complaining and pick up Craigslist to start looking for work. Maybe even take out a personal ad cause all of them are basically one note talents with no future in the business. Short of Ms. Mills who has a name in Hollywood, none of them stand a chance. If I were any of those bitter bettys I would be thanking the stars above that Donna Mills even took time out to listen to any of them and offer her support for their “project”.

I cannot believe Donna M is even doing this gig with the likes of some of these other actors… She is better than this….Hunter is hiding of embarrassment at this point. Never seen it and not even interested.

You’re LYAO but it’s the truth..right after the first airing I realized this was not to put these people on a network but on POP…when Vanessa found out the CW wanted only her she hightailed off that show and watch a 2016 show up on the CW with Vanessa…AND I DON’T BLAME HER…LOL

If it’s a parody, it’s a pretty good parody. The group is as mismatched as possible and I like the ending of season 1. But I do feel sorry for Hunter. It’s hard to tell if she really is injured or not.

She was. Having surgeries very soon.

First, Donna Mills is a legend worthy of watching in any vehicle that she chooses. I do not watch soaps. Therefore I wasn’t familiar at all with any of the supporting cast. I was attracted to the theme of the program and I wondered how Ms. Mills would fit into the format.

Initially, I was surprised to see that Ms Mills would be involved with the lesser starlets. I concluded that she was acting as a mentor. I will admit that I was unable to watch an episode or two because I could not tolerate the brattiness of the starlets.

The finale was outstanding! I would certainly love to see a second season and I am willing to admit that!

8 Years To The Day Of All My Children & One Life to Live Being Canceled; Still Considered By Many Worst Move For Daytime

It’s hard to believe that 8 years ago today on April 14th, 2011, the soap world, its fans, and the cast members, learned of the heartbreaking news that ABC, in one swift move, decimated its daytime line-up when they announced the cancellations of long running series, All My Children (which would end at its 41st year), and One Life to Live (which would ends its run in its 43rd year).

At the time, ABC announced it would move to more lifestyle/entertainment series to replace these dramas.  In its place came The Chew and The Revolution, neither show is still on the air today.  Executives at that time pointed to research saying that times are changing and that their decision was “guided by extensive research into what today’s daytime viewers want,” and blame, in part, “the changing viewing patterns of the audience” for the axing of AMC and OLTL

Then ABC Daytime President, Brian Frons had joked to Deadline about the big announcement that he: “Pre-entered the witness protection program prior to today’s events.”  He added that “The demise of the two venerable soaps was actually a year in the making.  A year ago, we started to look at our projections where the ratings for the soaps would go.  When those projections came in pretty discouraging, the network began to aggressively develop replacement shows, 15 of them.  Four of the 15 were picked up to pilot: The Chew and The Revolution and two others, a talk show and a dating show. Originally, the idea was to cancel only one daytime drama.  The way the ratings developed and the pilots turned out, the ratings developed negatively and pilots developed positively, so we decided to make a bigger shift.”  Of note is that when it went off the air, One Life to Live was in third place among its competitors in the ratings.

The press release that came with the cancellations stated: “To honor the core, passionate audience and their rich history both shows will conclude in a manner that respects their legacies and the longstanding hopes of many of their viewers.”

Following the cancellations daytime reeled. The mainstream was sure it meant the endings of the soaps, period.  However, four shows illustrated that is not true at all.  For Days of our Lives, General Hospital, The Bold and the Beautiful and The Young and the Restless all remain, and still whether they are up or down in their numbers/ratings, they remain relevant and important to the enduring daytime viewing audience.

Sadly, as with any shows, the end of ABC’s AMC and OLTL meant loss of jobs for so many working in front of the camera and behind the scenes. One Life was the last soap opera in production in New York at the time.  AMC was already being shot in LA to cut costs to save it.

Still in 2019, if you venture on to social media, especially Twitter, you see fans constantly missing its stars and the towns of Llanview and Pine Valley, wanting this wrong rectified.  Although Prospect Park tried to revive the show with their online versions, eventually after legal battles that went on for a few years, ABC now retains the right to these properties,

The good news is that many favorites from AMC and OLTL have found success and been hired on other soap operas, bringing their followings with them, whether it be on-screen, or in the writing, producing, directing or crew departments.

So, do you think the loss of AMC and OLTL consolidated daytime and made the remaining shows stronger so they would not be touched or canceled?  Do you think ABC should try to mount a resurrected AMC and OLTL or an amalgamation of the two?  Do you remember where you were when you learned the two soaps were cancelled? Was this the worst misstep of all-time for daytime? Share your thoughts and theories via the comment section below.

George R. R. Martin’s “Leak” Of New Hulu Series WILD CARDS Featuring Eden Riegel, Thorsten Kaye. and Greg Rikkart

April Fool’s Day started off with a bang today when Eden Riegel (Ex-Bianca, AMC) posted a photo of herself with Thorsten Kaye (Ridge, B&B) and Greg Rikaart (Ex-Leo, DAYS)  in a very intriguing image.  See above pic!  As it turns out, it’s said to be from behind the scenes from some leaked footage of the upcoming Hulu series, Wild Cards.

The premise of Wild Cards is based on the sci-fi anthology series edited by George R. R, Martin, best known for writing the “Song of Ice and Fire” novels, on which HBO’s Game of Thrones is based.  Riegel’s husband, Andrew Miller is the showrunner attached to the upcoming series.

On Martin’s website he teases the set-up of the “leaked” video clip:  “This was not supposed to go public.. Everybody (Well, everybody that has been paying attention knows that we are developing two Wild Cards as a series for Hulu  Andrew Miller has taken the reins as showrunner, a writing staff has been hired, and they have been hard at work for months.  What was NOT supposed to be known is how far they’ve come.  Not only have some scripts been finished, but the first show has gone into production and has been shooting.  That was supposed to be a deep dark secret, however.   We wanted to surprise the world. It’s hard to keep secrets in Hollyweird, however.  And now it appears that some of the rough footage has been leaked by person or persons unknown”

Meanwhile, Riegel sent out a series of tweets: “Hooo boy…cat’s out of the bag! Fans, please don’t judge our show based on these leaked videos!! The effects are going to knock your socks off. And my costars, and , are doing the best work of their lives!”  That was followed by, T”hank you for the chance to work with you on your first foray into soaps! I am humbled and honored. We won’t let you down.” And then, “I’m probably not allowed to share this with all the NDAs I signed, but damnit I’m just so proud of the team!  think we are breaking new ground for soaps. So proud to work with you!”

Now below, check out the Wild Cards “leaked footage” and let us know if you think of the …. um … drama! Comment below.  And one more thing … Happy April Fool’s!

WATCH: All My Children Reunion On Strahan & Sara

On Monday’s episode of ABC’s Strahan & Sara, the show welcomed several stars of the beloved All My Children for a reunion, of sorts. Joining hosts Michael Strahan and Sara Haines were Susan Lucci (Erica), Walt Willey (Jack), Cady McClain (Dixie), Jacob Young (JR) and Jill Larson (Opal).

While it was wonderful to see the stars from Pine Valley again, it was also a painful reminder that this network, ABC, canceled the show, and had put in its place – The Chew, and now Strahan & Sara – since canning the series.   In fact, as you will see on the clips below, many of the crew who work on this talk show were once the crew for All My Children.

During the segment, Susan Lucci was tested to see if she remembered all of Erica Kane’s wedded names.  Later, Walt Willey and Susan re-created the final scene of the ABC version of All My Children between Erica and Jack, where Jack walks out on her.  However, this time, they have Jack changing his mind and coming back to Erica and sealing their relationship with a kiss – a moment of closure that never happened (since the show moved to online via Prospect Park).

In addition, Cady McClain and Jacob Young re-created the infamous Dixie “dying from eating poison pancakes” scene, as JR watches his mother die, only this time she lives.

It’s always great to see these veteran performers, but Strahan & Sara is trying to capture the soap viewers to put eyeballs on their show by bringing in talent from the show that sadly and wrongly went off the air.

Watch the clips below from the All My Children reunion below.  Then, let us know what you thought of it via the comment section below.
