Agreed. He is quickly becoming one of my favorite people. What a bright, genuine young guy…not to mention very attractive. Thanks Michael and team bringing to us this insightful interview. Michael, you do a wonderful job interviewing. Especially, loved your question to Scott about his thoughts on real life fatherhood and what he thought of how the sex scene turned out. Thanks for doing a video interview with Scott.

Thanks for this interview! I’m a big fan of Scott and Brett and Kish of course. It’s a shame that ABC and OLTL have chosen to end the best story on the show and let go of two of their biggest talents. Listening to Scott talk about what he wanted for the Oliver and Sierra Rose storyline… and then they just drop it all together! So we’ll never see that at all. It’s sad.

not sure if im the only one or not, but looking at Scott’s interview i just fell even harder for him. he made me cry and laugh looking at his oh soooo cute and sexy self;-) if OLTL/ABC knows whats best they’d reconsider this decision. plz, plz, plz bring back Kish

Michael, you are so right. The writing was there to continue this beautiful romantic story into two gay men raising a child. I wanted so badly to see that play out and I am still devastated that I won’t be seeing this amazing story continue. All this said as a single, straight woman supposedly in ABC’s “mainstream” demographic.
Love your interview and love Brett and Scott! I miss Kish!

Scott is so adorable and i love how he and Brett always mention their great effection for each other….how sad that they were both so excited about their story continuing not knowing what would happen
just a few days later….. i’m sure they must feel as cheated as the Kish fans do. but hopefully ABC will realize they have made a huge mistake and bring Scott and Brett back to continue the beautiful love story of Kyle and Oliver…the show cant afford to lose them and neither can their fans….KISH FOREVER…

Scott Evans and Brett Claywell have been, by far, the best representatives for OLTL in everything they do. I am still in a total state of shock that these two brilliant young actors were so unceremoneously DUMPED by this soap. Of all the horrible characters they have on the show, I can’t believe they actually chose to terminate the two actors who were the “bright spots” for the future of OLTL. These two young men are not only wonderful serious actors, but also are great comedic actors who could have brought so much to the canvas of the show. Instead, viewers are supposed to settle for Farah Fath, the absolute WORST actress in daytime, and TPTB at OLTL expect us to sit back and let them shove her down our throats every single day. It has been long rumored that Ms. Fath is a bit of a diva and constantly complains about other actors getting more airtime than she gets. (Although I don’t know how that could be possible, especially lately). And she apparently has no qualms about trying to get other actors “canned” from the show, especially those she doesn’t particularly like (which is most of them according to rumor). Obviously, Ms. Fath MUST BE the center of attention, so anyone else that gets any attention at all better watch out as their job on the show is likely in jeopardy. Just take a quick look back in time over the past several months and see who is no longer on the canvas at OLTL. Every single actor/actress that has been in a storyline with Ms. Fath has either left the show, were fired, or have been put on recurring status (except, of course, her doting boyfriend John Paul Lovassier). Is this a coincidence? I think not! The Kish baby storyline was originally written for Kish. Yet who ended up being the total focus of THEIR storyline and been “front and center” on our TV screens since January? So, in essence, Kish was shoved to the back burner in what was supposed to be THEIR storyline, while Ms. Fath (and the writers on OLTL) tried to make the Gigi character look like Mother Teresa caring for her hated sister’s baby. GMAFB. It doesn’t take a rocket scientist to figure out what has been going on at OLTL. Kish did nothing wrong and were nothing but totally professional. Their only problem was, they did TOO GOOD of a job with their storylines and brought a great deal of positive attention to OLTL (something you would think they would want and that they definitely need at this point). BUT, in doing so, it obviously didn’t sit well with the one person who thinks SHE should be the Queen Bee and that everything should revolve around her. Fifi-La-Puke (as she is becoming known as on many message boards) is even more hated than the character Stacy was. The difference is, Stacy was SUPPOSED TO BE a character viewers disliked. This has to… Read more »

I love Scott Evans his so professional and down to earth person. I just want to inform everybody that even here in the Philippines the KISH fever has wave many people especially in the gay community. The OLTL is my most favorite soap , i love scott and brett they both adorable and very hot. There both sexy in many ways i never could imagine.

As watch the video in youtube ; I cant help my self ,
there’s something with scott and brett that make me feel happy ,like a magic that defines that personally believe and never stop believing in the power of love no matter what situation you are in or what you are as a person because I do believe in the saying : ALWAYS DO WHAT YOU WANT, DON’T MIND WHAT OTHER PEOPLE MIGHT SAY BECAUSE WHETHER YOU DO IT OR NOT neither GOOD or BAD ; OTHER PEOPLE HAS ALWAYS SOMETHING TO SAY.

So for Scott Evans and Brett Claywell both of you rarely adorable couple pulled it off . I’m proud of you. I’m your #1 FAN here in the Philippines , KISHernatic AJ BUENO

I was really disappointed that they decided to end up the Kish story. Which, in the first place, is the greatest ever gay storyline that have been told on tv soaps. It is a realistic and inspiring story between two men who found their friendship blossom into an unconditional love that have lingered til they they reacquainted after several years. Inspite all the struggles that their relationship has gone through. All the protest from all sides. They bravely confronted the risks and profoundly expressed what is in their hearts. Even the worst circumstances cannot prostrate to defy what real love can do between two people. No matter what belief you got, or principles you uphold, or even gender you got. That is the most endearing, captivating and inspirational gay storyline i have seen on tv. I admit that I have only seen the story a month ago. But it has made a big impact not only to gay people, but also to straight people who watch the show. It was a phenomenon, to be honest. I have always been watching their scenes on You Tube. And they always bring smile and joy everytime. They have shown professionaly, what love really is. And how it works in real life. The writing was genius.
I hope and pray that ABC will bring back Kish and tell how they have done as same sex couple bringing up a child together. I think, from where it all started, it has a great storyline to develop, that the viewers will definitely love to see.
And I will continually applause and respect how these two great actors have portrayed and brought to life Kish. They are just meant to be together.
I wish both Scott and Brett all the best. And praying to see them work together again. Bravo to Kish!

Well..here it is 2011 and I am late to the party again! In my defense I never really watch Soap Operas as I am at work during the day. I recently found Kish by accident on YouTube and fell hard for the storyline. Then I found out that they had been written out of the show in April 2010. It was kind of crushing to see that this beautiful storyline had been ended. I especially love Oliver’s character and the more I see and learn about Scott Evans, I love him even more. I have been reading a lot of things from tired old queens about Scott using his brother’s fame and his own good looks to score the role of Oliver and it makes me crazy mad! Scott is a great actor and I hope to see him in more roles soon. The fact that he is a gay man and that he played a gay character just makes me respect him even more.

Eileen Davidson & Vincent Van Patten Talk ‘7 Days to Vegas’, Their Relationship and Y&R, DAYS & RHOBH

Today’s the day for the highly-anticipated film, 7 Days to Vegas which bows in selected theaters. The motion picture which stars Vincent Van Patten and his real-life wife, two-time Daytime Emmy winning actress Eileen Davidson (Y&R’s Ashley and former Kristen/Susan Banks, Days) is a comedic gambling romp, centering around the character of Duke (Van Patten), an out-of-work actor turned poker player who makes a prop bet that he walk from the San Fernando Valley in California to Sin City, Las Vegas in 7 days.

There are some catches to this bet that make it even more challenging  … Duke has to wear a suit the entire time in scorching heat.  The events in the movie are loosely based on Van Patten’s Hollywood Poker game nights.  7 Days to Vegas features a fictional gang of betting entertainment industry bigwigs, who are hardcore gamblers and of course, jealousy strikes.  Davidson plays Duke’s wife, KC.

Michael Fairman sat down with Eileen and Vincent at their home, and at their famed poker table for the Michael Fairman Channel, to chat about the making of the movie, their relationship and some intriguing tidbits for fans of Eileen’s work on The Young and the Restless, Days of our Lives and her time on Bravo’s hit reality franchise, The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills.

In 7 Days to Vegas, Eileen says that Vincent fashioned her role of KC after their real-life relationship adding, “They are in it together. This is a lifestyle that they both enjoy.  That is what somebody does when there is a home game; you call people up, and make sure who is going to be there.  Van Patten said, “There is a host of the game, and that is her role in the movie.”

As to the scenes where Duke is walking to Vegas, Van Patten shared, “We shot the film in Santa Clarita, California in the hills and the mountains and all of that, and then we out five days after with a second unit shoot and shot with drones in the desert.  So, I must have walked 10 miles a day, shooting, sweating, but you don’t feel it, because when it’s your baby, it’s a labor of love.”

When asked if she would go back to daytime, Eileen shared she would be back for more Ashley on Y&R: “I am supposed to go back to Y&R in a couple of more weeks. So I am popping in and out at this point.”  Davidson also shared she wishes nothing but the best to Stacy Haiduk who inherited her roles on Days of our Lives as Kristen DiMera and Susan Banks. Eileen said she does not watch the episodes of the show anymore, because it makes her feel sad.  The roles of Kristen and Susan were so close to Davidson’s heart.

In speaking of her time on RHOBH, Van Patten shared, “I think she (Eileen) did a great job. It went by real quick. I think she did like three years on it.  I was in the background carrying her purse, going, ‘Yes, yes, here I come.”  (Laughs)  Davidson expressed: “Listen, reality TV … it’s a crazy, wild, Wild West.”  When Michael asked about the time a drink was thrown in her face, Eileen explained:  “I think Brandi (Granville) felt she needed to be relevant to be on the show, and her role was to be a troublemaker. I understand more of it now.  At the time, I was a deer in the headlights for the first couple of years.”  Vincent shared, “People always ask if this stuff is scripted, and it’s actually not, but you can spice it up”   As to if ‘Housewives’ makes up the drama, Davidson elaborated, “Before the season starts they will ask, ‘What is going on in your life?’, and maybe there is some of that behind-the-scenes stuff.  It didn’t happen with me.  I’m not saying it doesn’t happen, but it is a reality show, but it is also entertainment, and if all we did was sit around, how fun would that be?”

Y&R’s Elizabeth Hendrickson and Greg Rikaart Talk On The Return of Chloe and Kevin

Fans of The Young and the Restless were overjoyed to learn a few months ago that Kevin and Chloe played to perfection by Greg Rikaart and Elizabeth Hendrickson were headed back to the CBS Daytime drama following the regime change at the top.

Rikaart had previously with the series for 14 years before he was taken off-contract, and then journeyed to Days of our Lives to take on the role of Leo, while Hendrickson went to General Hospital to take on the role of Margaux Dawson, only to eventually head back to Genoa City.

Michael Fairman sat down with the popular on-screen duo recently on the set of Crimson Lights at CBS Television City for a special conversation via The Michael Fairman Channel on You Tube.

When discussing what happened behind the scenes that led them back to Genoa City, Liz expressed: “It was definitely a surprise to get the call. I wouldn’t say it came out of nowhere because I saw Melissa Claire Egan (Chelsea) was coming back and Michelle Stafford (Phyllis) was coming back, and it looked like they were getting the gang back together.  I wasn’t sure if I was next on the list, but when I did get the call, I was really excited, and so I chimed in with my better half (Greg) and he was too, so then I was like, ‘Well, let’s do it.”  Greg related: “I had a conversation with Josh Griffith (head writer, Y&R) and expressed that it was nice being back in the building. and a little bit later, I got a phone call inviting me back.”

If viewers have followed recent developments on Y&R, Chloe and Kevin kidnapped Billy for is own protection (Jason Thompson) to a cabin, after he tried to kill Adam.  In the ensuing scenes, Kevin injects Billy with a syringe filled with a drug to knock him out.  Rikaart shared, “Doesn’t it make sense, that if anyone had something on them to knock someone out it would be Kevin .. on the ready!?”

Liz said of Billy’s deteriorating mental health state and working with Jason Thompson (and Billy’s revenge against Adam): “Chloe also knows that Delia would not want her father to take revenge.”  As far as working with Jason Thompson, Hendrickson shared: “Jason is really, really wonderful.  I have known him personally outside of the soap world from mutual friends.  And in getting to work with him, Jason is just great. He is a really solid guy, as well.

Later, Liz and Greg weigh-in on their favorite all-time scene together.  Greg admitted, “The first one to come to mind is our New Year’s scene, because that is when we first got together. and the build-up to that was a really long time coming. I thought it was so beautifully played where Kevin had finally given up on the idea of them being together, and he is out with spray tan girl and it’s New Year’s Eve and all he is doing the entire time is complaining about Chloe. Meanwhile, Chloe is home in her pajamas eating ice cream with Esther – it was very much a throwback to a John Hughes 1980’s rom-com.”

On their return to Y&R, Greg concluded:  “I think the fans are excited that we are back, and I think that fuels my excitement too, because when I was gone I really missed this place and knowing people missed having me here, I realized I wasn’t crazy …. this was something special.”
