and Lisa had her best chemistry with RKKs Bo than with PRs version…imo!

absolutely she did. It wasn’t until K.Alfonso returned that RKK’s days started to get numbered because THAT Bo & Hope pairing was a catastrophe & of course we know they split up Bo & Billie at that time. Enter PR to take over the role and PR & LR had zero chemistry.

Funny how two actors that hated each other were good onscreen. Rkk’s Bo & Billie. Heard this before.

There’s a fine line between love and hate…in this case heat, my lovely, ces, right? In my opinion it was the secret desire they had for each other which they could not ‘touch’ and fulfill. How can one hate another and still get into such a passionate mixing of fluids? Cannot fake that. That was real. I think they probably wished they could do the deed in reality. Just sayin’.
So, what does the fox/vixen say when he/she cannot reach the grapes on the grapevine? Not ripe/too sour. Excuses, excuses…..lol. Later, my friend.

He was dating the 16 year old that played Sami’s friend Jamie at the time. I was reading just yesterday that Hall, KA, LR, and Sweeney’s Mom all suggested it was time for RKK to leave.

@ces.
OOOO, yeah, baby! I think Miss Lisa salivated for Robert…
I need to be careful as to what I say, though. Nancy has summarily chastised me. Later, ces.

OMG! Love Eileen Davidson, and sorry Y&R fans, but I prefer her as Kristen…still I wonder what GH would be like right now had she signed with them… are you watching Ron?

Ron isn’t watching. He’s been gone for nearly 3 months. And, hasn’t GH exchanged enough acting talent with Y&R? Genie Francis, Tristan Rogers, Maura West, Emme Rylan, Michelle Stafford, Billy Miller, and if rumor has it, one more departing leading man. Do all these actors have the same agents or what?

Oops you are right, I meant Frank, and ED can be the last…lol

Chris F,

Eileen said she tested at GH before becoming Ashley….this would be early 80’s…..WTF does Ron have to do with that?…..GH existed long before Ron

Chris there is no need to be rude! I know what she said I watched and I read…I was merely implying that if she brought it up perhaps she would be interested in a stint still, and I meant to say Frank since Ron has left GH!

The Daytime Emmys are just three days away when the gold statuettes are handed out on the 49th Annual Awards Show telecast on CBS and streaming on Paramount+ on Friday night, June 24th (9pm EST).

Ahead of the ceremonies, NATAS President and CEO, Adam Sharp, spoke to Variety to give some details of what viewers may be on the lookout for when the broadcast returns, with an all-live presentation for the first time since 2019, and through the Covid-19 pandemic, which caused it to pivot to virtual ceremonies for the last two years.

Now, Sharp shares that with the previously announced realignment that will see Children’s & Family programming having its own Emmy that, “The telecast will be very squarely focused on the dramas, talk shows and game shows.”  He also adds: “It will be a bit more focused.”

With an audience present this year, Sharp is counting on the live element to heighten the awards night fun and drama. expressing, “Hopefully that  excitement conveys to the viewers.  I think you’ll see us try to put a lot of that interaction on display.”

This year’s Daytime Emmys will feature 14 categories which Sharp hopes streamlines the broadcast and keeps it to a tight two-hour celebration of daytime.

Previously, NATAS and the TV Academy (which administers the Primetime Emmys), decided to move away from day part distinctions and focus more on genre. In addition, streaming series featuring soap notables, such as Studio City and The Bay, will be competing for nomination slots in September’s Primetime Emmys.

So, looking forward to this year’s Daytime Emmy telecast? Comment below.
