Soap Vet Antonio Sabato Jr. Advances in California Primary House Race

Photo Credit: HutchinsPhoto.com

From General Hospital, GH: Night Shift, The Bold and the Beautiful to Melrose Place, soap opera alum, Antonio Sabato Jr. certainly made a name for himself in that arena, especially in his debut role as GH’s Jagger Cates.

Moving from the on-stage world of show business, to the on-stage world of politics, Sabato advanced on Tuesday night in the California Primary as the Republican nominee for a congressional seat representing Ventura County.

Antonio was on the ballot in U.S House District 26, where he came in second.  He will face-off with incumbent Democrat Julia Brownley, who had more than doubled Sabato’s votes as of Wednesday morning.

As soap fans know, Sabato was a clear supporter of Donald Trump Jr. speaking on his behalf at the 2016 Republican National Convention.

The key mid-term elections will be held in November.

So, what do you think of Sabato continuing on in his bid for a House seat? Comment below.

Antonio Sabato Jr. is quite the radical..
I have seen/heard him and he’s not right in the head.
He should not be elected to dog catcher yet to any house seat.

Why??? Because believing in upholding the laws of our land via legal immigration by one who has actually gone through the process is a radical notion? Best of luck to Antonio…

Thought he was good on GH back in the day, but he has become a truly vile excuse for a human being in recent years. A full card carrying member of the Cheeto “Make America A Festering Pile of Dragonshit Again” death cult.

As Judge Judy says,”Beauty is fleeting, dumb is forever.” This chap is no longer beautiful but he is still stupid. He’s dumber than Stone, er, I mean dumber than a stone.

Yes, Timmm, and it just keeps getting worse and worse…time to change the name of this soap to “Valenti’s People,” since it’s crammed full of boring, mundane characters that have nothing to do with GH.

Jussie Smollett Scenes Cut From ‘Empire’ In Light Of Attack Investigation

As of Tuesday, the production of Fox’s hit series, Empire has slashed Jussie Smollett’s upcoming scenes following reports that the suspicion is now on him for allegedly staging the “hate” attack he reported to the Chicago PD back on January 29th.

According to production sources viaTMZ: Jussie was supposed to have nine scenes and a big musical performance in the second-to-last episode of Season 5,  Now, five scenes and the musical number have been axed.  Smollett’s character is also no longer the focus of his remaining four scenes, which will now feature an ensemble of characters.

The actor/singer who portrays Jamal Lyon will be working Friday and possibly Thursday but won’t be rehearsing.

The Empire writers are said to have been scrambling over the last 24 hours to revise this season’s scripts.

All of this despite despite strongly expressed renewed support by Empire showrunner Brett Mahoney on February 17th.  The goal now is said to be to reduce Smollett’s role both in dramatic stints and musical performances.

Empire returns for the remainder of its fifth season on March 13.

Smollett claims he was the victim of a racist and homophobic attack near his Chicago apartment, but things took a turn when he may have paid two friends to help stage the assault.

This case is said to be going before a Grand Jury as early as today.

What are your thoughts on the latest developments in the Smollett case and Empire reducing his appearances for the remainder of the season? Comment below.

TODAY: Y&R’s Melody Thomas Scott Visits ‘The Talk’ As Her 40th Anniversary Week As Nikki Newman Kicks-Off

On today’s broadcast of the CBS afternoon series, The Talk, the ladies welcome Y&R icon, Melody Thomas Scott, who this week celebrates her incredible 40th anniversary with the show as Nikki Newman.

During her segment, Melody chats on Wednesday’s upcoming standalone episode where Nikki is in jail reflecting on her life.  Wednesday is also the exact date of Thomas Scott’s 40th anniversary with the CBS Daytime drama series.

During the segment Melody fills the ladies in on the “All About Nikki” episode, as she relates:  “I was so thrilled that they did this. It’s truly, really the life of Nikki in the entirety of the episode. It’s all about Nikki. And she’s in jail. She’s writing a letter to her grandchildren so that she can explain who she really is, how she got to where she is.  I have to narrate it, I’ve got a voice-over, a long voice-over. And then, as I’m thinking about all these different times in my life, I can’t believe I’m referring to me as her, her life, then we see the flashbacks. And for the longtime viewers, even current viewers, it is such a trip down memory lane. I mean, you are on that train and you’re not getting off…all of the clips have not been seen since they were first aired.”

In addition, Melody addresses the passing of her longtime co-star and friend, Kristoff St. John relating:  “I adored him. We all adored him. There was something very unique and magical about him. He would just draw you into his wonderful world. And all of his bear hugs, I can’t believe I’ll never get a bear hug. Going to any kind of event, any party, the first thing I said when I got there was ‘Where’s Kristoff?’ I want to find Kristoff, I want to be with him, I want to be in his air space. Because that’s the kind of guy he was, and I think that came through on camera. I think everybody sensed that, I mean everybody adored him.”

So, will you be checking out Melody on today’s episode of The Talk (2PMEST and 1PM PST) today? Comment below.
