SNL Spoofs What Soap Operas Would Be Like In COVID-19-Themed ‘The Sands Of Modesto’

Courtesy/NBC

As the entire world is taking precautionary measures against the outbreak of the coronavirus, Saturday Night Live took the opportunity to ham it up and show what it would be like on your favorite daytime dramas with “alternative ways” for a bitch-slap, catfight, a kiss, a phone call and other soap staples that would need to be changed up in order to protect the cast. Even stock footage enters the satire, making it all the more amusing.

Watch what happens when SNL host, Daniel Craig, and the cast including: Kate McKinnon, Cecily Strong and Chloe Fineman take on their soap roles in ‘The Sands of Modesto.    Check it out below.

Then let us know if you got a kick out of it, or not, via the comment section below, and while your prepping your thoughts, think of this actually happened on Y&R, DAYS, GH and B&B! Might it up the ratings?

But when he touches her with the fake hand it could have the virus on it couldnt it…anyway this shows an overly panic world…for example here one of the actors or crew member would have to have the virus…and you wouldnt be able to touch anything the way this goes!!!!…just like when you go into a supermarket now and wipe the shopping cart handle-we forget everything in the store has been touched and repeatedly on a daily basis so you really arent protected!!!!

lol, it was funny and over the top, kudos, but in all seriousness, I think GH should do a storyline on the corona virus maybe not hit us over the head w/ it but mention it considering they are a hospital show and have a doctor who specializes in infectious disease ( paging Dr. Finn).

IT was funny. I don’t think it disgraced soap operas. Anyone with half a brain knows our soaps are soooo much more than a spoof ~ and that’s exactly what this was, a spoof on the drama of what some people are calling for regarding this pandemic. While we need to educate ourselves and stay safe, this was some comic relief, in my opinion.

I thought it was very lame. And I (& my mother) can gripe about/make fun/question the craziness of our shows & believe me, we do, BUT I hate when anyone else makes fun of them!

Hysterical. Did they mimic Ramsey’s “acting?”-the overly dramatic, whispering drivel that he spits out.

That’s the comedic take from NBC. Meanwhile, the non-comedy version of NBC throws Lester Holt in your face every damn day like clockwork at 1:00 PM to give you the daily fear report and cut into Days airtime (though never the Big Pharma commercials, of course), even though there’s very little actual news in what they’re reporting. And certainly nothing that couldn’t wait for the nightly news.

B&B’s Jacqueline MacInnes Wood Talks Motherhood, Steffy’s Opioid Addiction and Love Life on ‘Home & Family’

Daytime Emmy Award winner and a nominee again this year for Outstanding Lead Actress in a Daytime Drama Series, The Bold and the Beautiful’s Jacqueline MacInnes Wood (Steffy Forrester) chatted with Home & Family.

During her segment, Jacqui discussed becoming a mom again for the second time and welcoming her new son, Lenix, and balancing raising two boys with playing the day to day perils of Steffy Forrester.

As soap fans know, last year’s storyline where Steffy became addicted to painkillers provided her with meaty material which landed her as one of the frontrunners for next week’s 48th annual Daytime Emmy Awards to air on Friday night, June 25th on CBS.

MacInnes Wood became emotional when telling how Steffy’s addiction intervention helped others, relating: “I was flooded with all of these messages, and this one woman reached out to me and she said her son… it still gets me emotional … but her son was addicted and that intervention was the same thing with her family, and it touched me in such a way and she said luckily that he is sober now.”

Jacqui also talked about Steffy’s on-screen love life …. and her real-life love and husband, Elan Ruspoli.

You can watch the full interview segment here.

So, what do you think of Jacqueline raising a new baby boy, being a mom to the other, while playing Steffy’s emotional storylines? Comment below.

B&B’s Don Diamont Granted Restraining Order Against Alleged Stalker

The Bold and the Beautiful’s Don Diamont (Bill Spencer) was granted a temporary restraining order in L.A. County Superior Court against 37-year-old Quincy Adams; who Diamont says has been harassing him and his family since back in January.

According to court documents obtained by TMZ, Diamont alleges that Adams took to YouTube saying Don was a Satanist and responsible for COVID, 9/11, and the Iraq war.  In addition, Adams claimed to be connected to him some way from birth.

It was then that Don grew increasingly concerned when the man shared online that he knew where Diamont and his family lived.

Then came June 2nd, when Adams showed up at their front gate and Don received a call from his wife, Cindy.  The police handled Adams from there, but Don was very worried that Adams might harm him, or his family, so he was granted the temporary restraining order against him.

We wish Don and his family nothing but safety in the days ahead.

So what do you think about the claims and actions of Adams on Diamont? Comment below.
