Moore took to his Instagram  account and posted this message with a picture of himself stating: “Just finished shooting THE YOUNG AND THE RESTLESS.. 2 episodes in one day.. REALLY GREAT to work with my OLD FRIENDS again!! 10 years later it felt like just yesterday once we started performing.. It’s short n sweet n dramatic of course.. HOPE YOU Y&R FANS ENJOY IT..

(Drucilla was married to Neil but slept with Malcolm). Sadly, the actress won’t be there to join in on the fun.”

Shemar added:  “I ran into her (Rowell) a couple weeks ago.  I told her I’m sorry we won’t be all together. That would be pretty great, but as far as I know, Dru has passed away.”

Blah. Who cares. Sigh. At least it’s the real Malcolm. Not like it matters with only two episodes though. And as far as I’m concerned, VR has verbally burned too many bridges to come back, which stinks because the fans are the ones who lose.

C’mon Y & R, forgive, forget, bring Dru back as a ghost full of mischief and mayhem…and pathos and poignancy…

Please Y&R forget and forgive and give Victoria (Dru) a chance to write some of the episodes, I said and repeat at least “some”, you may find that you like it and that they will work wonders for the show. Please let us of color b able to see that Y&R is not what has been claimed. Many of us are very gifted, and gifted with more thab being able to run a ball, hit a ball, dance, sing, and yes ACT, we are also awesome and gifted writers, did not Angilou wrote beautiful and moving poetry as did Phillis Wheatley. Come please, give it a try. Nell and Dru are an awesome unit, the couple you have today just is not gathering fan welcome and embrace….

They never forgot or forgave Brenda Dickson so I doubt they will ever forgive Rowell.

Not to mention that Rowell keeps picking at the wound. Loved her as Dru, but she’s got issues that are hazardous to her career.

MBmomof3…yes. I agree. Also…if you want to, think about this: More and more, I’m actually surprised that VR STILL has a career left at all. Over the years, she has burned SO MANY bridges. YIKES!!!!!

It seems she is just not worth the trouble.

They discuss Dru– I hope they mention Sophia too– since Neil slept with his brother’s fiancee or were they were married when he did, I forget. Anyway– still looking forward to appearance no matter how brief.

What did Ms Rowell do or say ?

The same things she’s continuing to do to this day instead of letting sleeping dogs lie. She claimed she was released from her contract after Bill Bell passed and Sony acquired the show along with CBS. She rants and raves about how Proctor and Gamble were racists(they were) as a company..she had an on going feud with Michelle Stafford who played Phyllis and more or less alluded to some nefarious goings on with Michelle and Melody Scott’s husband who was EP back then. She claims to want a return and in the next breathe and blog she’s tearing the Bosses of Y&R/CBS/SONY/P&G a new one. They certainly gave her a brutal death that Lily witnessed and the actress Christell Kalil was none too fond of her either. She had frequent rants and raves on set…and on and on…

How great would it be to have Malcolm come visit more often? Shemar Moore works for another CBS show so I would imagine it wouldn’t be too hard to facilitate Malcolm appearing every now and then, like the way Beth Maitland pops up every now and then as Tracy.

But what would really be amazing is if Victoria Rowell could return. I’ve missed Dru so much since she was “killed-off,” and since Sharon fell off the same cliff and came back alive, I’m sure they could find a way to write Dru back in.

whrs Liv?! Olivia s needed in town, to mix it up with neil and that hot new doc husband of leslie ‘s!!!

I dont see the point of bringing back Malcom just to talk about Dru being dead…unless Dru is alive and like Adam we will get to see her hand for months…maybe hands newman is somehow connected to the hands winters plot…lol

Welcome home Melcomb. Y&R offer him another contract and bring Nell’s brother back home full time. Ir was good seeing them together and the scene where he got Nell to say he is afraid about being blind was touching and emotional and I personally can relate to each it, for in 2007 a stroke took the sight in my left eye and I now am faced with the possibility of losing the sight in my right from Type 2 Diabetes ( glaucoma/cataract…Thet are great together, would love to see more…..

GH’s Maurice Benard Memoir ‘Nothing General About It’ Goes Nationwide Today

Today is the day! After months of fans eagerly awaiting the nationwide release of two-time Daytime Emmy winner, Maurice Benard’s (Sonny Corinthos, General Hospital) moving and insightful memoir, it’s finally available in book stores and online everywhere.

According to the publisher HarperCollins: The memoir Nothing General About It, looks back to Maurice’s youth in a small town and his tenuous relationship with his father. He describes how his bipolar disorder began to surface in childhood, how he struggled to understand the jolting mood swings he experienced, and how a doctor finally saved his life. For years Maurice was relentless in his goal to be a successful actor. But even after he “made it,” he still grappled with terrifying lows, breakdowns, and setbacks, all while trying desperately to maintain his relationship with his wife, who endured his violent, unpredictable episodes. Maurice holds nothing back as he bravely talks about what it was like to be medicated and institutionalized, and of how he learned to manage his manic episodes while on the set of GH.

Nothing General About It is also an incredible love story about an enduring marriage that demonstrates what those vows—for better, for worse, in sickness and in health—truly mean. Maurice also pays tribute to the community that has been there for him through thick and thin, and ruminates on the importance of both inherited and created family.  A shocking, riveting, and utterly candid memoir of love, adversity, and ultimately hope, Nothing General About It offers insights and advice for everyone trying to cope with mental illness, and is a motivational story that offers lessons in perseverance—of the importance of believing in and fighting for yourself through the darkest times.  Nothing General About It includes a 16-page insert featuring approximately 50 photographs.”

Popstar! TV Serves Up A Twist For Daytime Emmy Digital Drama Series Competition With ‘Evil Touch’ & ‘Death Squad’

This year the 47th annual Daytime Emmys competition features a crowded and mostly dramatic field of contenders in the burgeoning Outstanding Digital Drama Series category.  Over the years, this category has featured digital series that feature notable stars past or present from your favorite daytime dramas over the years from The Bay to After Forever.

Now comes two offerings and contenders from Associated Television International that are certainly not the usual suspects one would come to expect when voting for the different series in the running … for they have a significant horror-genre, superhero, or even one might say CW-type series bent to them. Both series have made it through into the Daytime Emmy blue ribbon round of voting.

Both Evil Touch and Death Squad are the series that are competing in the Outstanding Digital Drama Series and Outstanding Directing Team for a Digital Drama Series categories.  The shows both are seen exclusively on Popstar! TV – the only independent digital network producing original dramas.

But wait! When delving into the cast of Evil Touch we found some familiar faces to daytime!  Featured in it are: Daniel Covin (Ex-Hunter – Prospect Park’s All My Children reboot), Alicia Leigh Willis (Ex- Courtney, General Hospital, and Erik Fellows (Ex- Days and currently Damian in The Bay ).

Evil Touch is a horror -genre fish-out-of-water story with a demonic possession angle. It begins with a group of students from a small American college on a religious studies tour with their professor when they become stranded in the middle of nowhere. Seeking help in the village, they soon discover that there is something very strange and menacing about this place and its inhabitants. Before they know it, they find themselves captives and they learn that the villagers aren’t the only threat.

As for Death Squad that is in-line with some of the recent popular zombie series  ( i.e. Walking Dead) that have become so popular these days.  In it, members of a team of private contractors, all former soldiers who served together in Iraq are hired by a shadowy businessman to go into a former Soviet bio-weapons lab that has been re-purposed for advanced research and development. The team has few details when they enter the facility and begin searching for the lead scientist. Viewers quickly learn that something went very wrong in the lab, and as it turns out, it’s biggest threat is that most of the lab workers have been turned into the living dead.

Clearly, these two shows are vastly different from the love stories, familial dramas and relationship-driven types of fare that often compete in the digital drama categories at the Daytime Emmys.  Since they both have made into the blue-ribbon round; is it further proof that daytime and digital television is getting on-board with the horror genre, too?
