I agree. Sharon Case should have been in that Daytime Queen as well. They have tried to destroy her character for a long time now. It looks like their going to try and pin Austin’s murder on her. If they do and they think they lost viewers before watch what happens then.

From the short clip, it looks like an all soap cast of yet another version of the Real Housewives. I am okay with that though, as I do watch some of the Real Housewives shows, and I know and like some of the women in this new show as well. Wishing them all well.

I was a big fan of Chrystee Pharis on PASSIONS. She was quite good and the reveal and playing out of her lesbian storyline was well acted…and completely ignored by the soap press. That was a shame. I hope she gets a chance to shine here and, as the minority, is not simply cast as the no nonsense balck girl steroetype or, worse, Omarosa/Starr Jones-esquw villain on the show. I always felt that, had there been more roles for black women on daytime, she would have been snapped up quickly by another soap.

Is it a reality show or scripted? I thought it was going to be a scripted show. Don’t think I’ll watch if it’s reality.

If I understand, it’s a reality show about these six women producing and starring in a pilot for a primetime soap opera.

It looks kinda fun in a guilty pleasure way.

The Chew Cancelled After 7 Seasons; A Slice Of Justice For All My Children Fans?

Karma is a bitch! ABC announced yesterday that the foodie series The Chew has been axed after seven seasons. 

The Chew lost significant viewers when ABC fired main co-host chef, Mario Batali after reports of alleged sexual harassment over many years. Clinton Kelly, Carla Hall, and Michael Symon have remained the regular series hosts.

In addition, The Chew dropped 17% with women in the 18-49 demo and this has been its least watched season since its debut in 2011.  As ABC Daytime fans know, The Chew replaced iconic soap opera All My Children, when ABC made the decision to cancel the beloved soap and replace it with the food show.

So, let’s take a look at the numbers: All My Children lasted 41 years, while The Chew lasted 7 seasons. Hmm …

ABC noted that The Chew will cease production at the end of this season, but will continue to air until September with all-new episodes in June.  In addition, ABC announced that Good Morning America will expand to three hours.  Thus, switching up the ABC morning line-up.

So, are you glad that The Chew got fried?  Is this justice for All My Children fans who miss their beloved Pine Valley?  Comment below.

All My Children Alum Kim Delaney Joins The Cast of CHICAGO FIRE!

Pine Valley’s Jenny Gardner, who is all grown up and had a successful career in primetime television and films, has landed a primo role on NBC’s hit drama, Chicago Fire!

Casting news has revealed that Kim Delaney is joining the show in Season 6 where she will play the role of Jennifer Sheridan, the mother of Kelly Severide (Taylor Kinney).

According to Deadline, Kim’s new role as Jennifer Sheridan is described as “warm, scripture-quoting and church-going. At one point she may have partied like it was 1979, but now it looks like she’s on the path of the straight and narrow. If you ask her, she’s moved on from the past, namely her messy divorce from her ex-husband Benny (Treat Williams), but old habits die very hard.”

Chicago Fire is currently on hiatus until after the Winter Olympics, when it begins again on March 1st.  As viewers know, in the last episode prior to the break, Kelly and Casey (Jesse Spenver) were seen jumping off a roof of a building while it was in flames in an exciting cliffhanger. (more…)
