On-Air On-Soaps caught up with some of the dazzling stars of Revenge, and the executive behind the scenes, to get some inside scoops of what is to come, how they like working with each other, why the series has become such a runaway hit, their thoughts on daytime soaps, and of course, some dishy and fun tidbits!  Throughout the week, you will read how these steamy stars truly know how to show us … The art of revenge!

We start with the woman who is at the epicenter of all the bitter vitriol and drama, and who has made Emily Thorne, one gal we would not want to tangle with!  After all, she probably has more up her sleeve than anyone knows, or does she?  Here is our  “quickie” chat with the beautiful, charming, and beguiling, Emily VanCamp!

Your role is so juicy! You must find a way to channel your inner bitch in it.  And what is so great is Emily Thorne vacillates between icy, to being conflicted, in executing her agenda for revenge.

EMILY:  It is a lot of fun playing this part, because any kind of tension I feel in my day-to-day life I get to release that in my work! (Laughs)  I don’t know where that “inner bitch” comes from, but I guess everyone has it somewhere in them, and I get to kind of unleash it every day at work, and that it is fun.

And it’s so different than your role on Brothers  & Sisters!

EMILY:  I needed something different.  I really needed a change and I waited it out.  I didn’t want to just jump into the next project unless I really felt excited about it.  I just fell in love with the script for Revenge immediately.  And actually, it wasn’t one of the favorites that is for sure.  Nobody really knew if people would respond to it and if it would do well, and yet, I just wanted to do the pilot and see where it went from there, because it really spoke to me.  It was certainly the most challenging role I had read that pilot season and the most “juicy” and exciting part.  I could see myself enjoying it for a long time.

There is a big moment in episode 16 called “Scandal” when Takeda is beating Emily  up and he throws her against a wall.  Was that fun to do?  It looked dangerous!

EMILY: Oh my God!  I thought I broke my jaw during that scene!  I woke up the next morning and had a hard time speaking.  So I guess because your adrenaline is running so much, you don’t feel a lot of pain shooting it.  Then the next morning, I was all bruised up. And as an actress, you really want to go for it.  But now I am thinking, “Maybe I should tone it down next time and fake it a little bit,” I suppose.  But we had a great time and Hiroyuki Sanada (Takeda) is incredible to work with!

When you and Madeline Stowe go through scenes together that call for you to be both steely and bitchy with each other, you must laugh after the director yells, “Cut”!

EMILY: Of course we have to laugh.  You have to laugh because it’s so absurd.  I love Madeline so much. We have this great relationship on set and we have this great relationship off set.  So how can you be so evil to this person?  I don’t know, but we manage to do it with a smile, and it’s a lot of fun to play.  However, you have to remember you are acting, because it’s funny. (Laughs)

Million dollar question: Does Emily truly love Daniel Grayson?

EMILY: I think so.  But, there is a big game-changer coming up that will be surprising to her and surprising for the viewers that might help gather a few more Team Jack followers!

What do you think about the glamorous clothes you wear as Emily?  She actually is quite the fashion-plate!

EMILY: We get to wear such beautiful clothing, and it’s hilarious because I am not a fashion forward person.  I get to wear this sexy clothing and then put my t-shirt and jeans on to go home.

Why do you think Revenge is so popular worldwide?

EMILY:  I think revenge is just a universal theme.  You say “revenge” and you think of The Hamptons and all the beautiful people and the rich.  And also with this time in America with a bad economy, and people looking for an escape, it all came together with perfect timing for us.  The show has really caught on!

An all–new episode of Revenge airs on Wednesday, April 18th at 10PM EST only on ABC called “Doubt”.   Here is the lowdown:  Daniel’s imprisonment sends Victoria to depths that no one thought possible, as the surprise return of a past love provides a destructive but welcome distraction from her family’s struggles.  Meanwhile, Jack’s search for Amanda grows more desperate as he comes under suspicion for murder, on “Revenge”.

So are you enjoying Emily VanCamp on Revenge?  Who do you want Emily Thorne to end up with Daniel or Jack?  Let us know your thoughts!

This is a brilliantly written prime-time soap. By far it is the best show on air.
I LOVE this show.
My one qualm, is it goes weeks and weeks without a show, and it takes awhile to catch on what is going on due to the time lapse from the last show.

Public Relations Exec & Former CBS Watch Guru, Jeremy Murphy, New Book with Special Nod to ‘Santa Barbara’ Avail for Pre-Order

If you want an inside look into the colorful, often back-stabbing world of PR and entertainment, but with a very candid yet very humorous take, you are going to want to order and pick up your copy of Jeremy Murphy’s new book, F**k Off, Chloe, and as it turns out, the author himself includes a surprising tribute to the beloved Santa Barbara!

Murphy, who spent 14 years at CBS where he the creator and editor in chief of the high-profile magazine, CBS Watch, later launched a successful career with countless clients in his boutique PR agency, 360 bespoke.  The agency is known for clients in the fields of luxury, the arts, fashion/ beauty, hospitality, travel, media, start-ups and entrepreneurs.  In fact, former Days and RHOBH star, Lisa Rinna beauty brand, Rinna Beauty, has been one of his clients.

In the log lines for this new book, available for pre-order from Simon & Schuster, it details: ‘Public relations’ snarkiest publicist Jeremy Murphy expertly chronicles his hatred, love, indifference, amusement, and scorn for the profession in F*ck Off, Chloe. From entitled millennials to surly reporters, obnoxious clients, and cumbersome, color-coded “trackers,” Murphy takes a scalpel and glass of Châteauneuf-du-Pape to the PR industry in a searing, hilarious, and pissy voice that his own psychiatrist finds “deeply concerning.” His collection of annoyances shed light on the industry’s idiosyncrasies, insanities, contradictions, and past due invoices, providing an illuminating window into the dirty world of public relations not even Xanax can help. Complementing the scathing prose are color-in illustrations by artist Darren Greenblatt, creator of the “Ugly Lives of Beautiful People” sketch series.’

Murphy told Michael Fairman TV as to why soap fans may want to check out the book: “Any Santa Barbarian will love this because it finally says what needs to be said: best.show.ever.”  Jeremy is in indeed a hard core Santa Barbara fan.

On a personal note, Michael Fairman shared: “I used to work with Jeremy when he was an editor-in-chief and commissioned me to write profiles of celebrities, and it was always a fun journey to collaborate with him. This new book spoofs PR, journalism, TV and media, in an honest, unapologetic, but hysterical way.”

To pre-order, F**k Off, Chloe click here and look for its release in store and everywhere in March of 2022.
