Michael Fairman’s monthly column Soapside: The Advocate Guide’s to Daytime is now live and features coverage from The 37th Annual Daytime Emmys with quotes, moments, and news from the red carpet, parties, press room and casinos!  With the Emmys being in Sin City, Las Vegas it made for, to the least, an interesting red carpet for LGBT favorites.  Here are a few excerpts!

DAYS Crystal Chappell, who lost her bid for her well deserved Lead Actress Emmy, had this to say about her Emmy luck and the Otalia story on Guiding Light. “I am a huge fan of the story they gave me. I am very lucky that my peers liked it. You know what? I had an experience a few years ago when I was nominated, when everyone came up to me, saying, ‘You’re going to win, you’re going to win.’ And I am going, ‘Oh, God.’ And I didn’t win, and then everyone was really embarrassed, and they kind of avoided me the whole night. So not only did I get screwed with the Emmy [laughs], I got ignored. So I take it with a whole grain of salt, and I am lucky to be here. I am lucky to have another job at this point, and I am a grateful girl, and somebody gave me a $25 Vegas chip.”

Eden Riegel (Heather, Y&R) mentioned that in recent scenes with Elizabeth Hendrickson (Chloe),  she couldn’t help but have some….sexual confusion… in scenes where she was supposed to be making eyes at John Driscoll’s, Chance , because of her past on-screen same-sex relationship with Hendrickson on All My Children: “The first scenes we had together, I was kind of making eyes at Liz, and there was sort of a sexual thing going on. I went, Uh-oh, wrong show, Eden. You got to put that under wraps. That was in rehearsal. So I said to myself, I have to look like I hate her. I have to look like I hate her. I had to look at her forehead and pretend she is somebody else. Now I am getting better at it, and I narrow my eyes and look like I don’t like her.”

I DO NOT KNOW WHAT CHARACTER EDEN PLAYED ON ALL MY CHILDREN, BUT I DO KNOW, I DO NOT LIKE HER AS THE NEW HEATHER ON YOUNG AND RESTLESS. MANY VIEWERS SHARE MY SENTIMENTS.

SHE DOES NOT KNOW HOW TO ACT LIKE AN ASSISTANT DISTRICT ATTORNEY AT ALL! SHE IS SO NEEDY AND JUST SO PATHETIC IN THIS ROLE.

I HAVE NOTHING AGAINST THIS ACTRESS, BUT I DO FEEL SHE AS A TERRIBLE RE-CAST FOR THE HEATHER CHARACTER, PHYSICALLY AND PERSONALITY WISE.

DEFINATELY NO MATCH FOR THE CHANCE CHARACTER. THEIR IS NO CHEMISTRY THERE AT ALL. CHANCE BELONGS WITH CHLOE. OPPOSITES ATTRACT AND CREATE GREAT CHEMISTRY. THEY ALSO LOOK GREAT TOGETHER.

The Chew Cancelled After 7 Seasons; A Slice Of Justice For All My Children Fans?

Karma is a bitch! ABC announced yesterday that the foodie series The Chew has been axed after seven seasons. 

The Chew lost significant viewers when ABC fired main co-host chef, Mario Batali after reports of alleged sexual harassment over many years. Clinton Kelly, Carla Hall, and Michael Symon have remained the regular series hosts.

In addition, The Chew dropped 17% with women in the 18-49 demo and this has been its least watched season since its debut in 2011.  As ABC Daytime fans know, The Chew replaced iconic soap opera All My Children, when ABC made the decision to cancel the beloved soap and replace it with the food show.

So, let’s take a look at the numbers: All My Children lasted 41 years, while The Chew lasted 7 seasons. Hmm …

ABC noted that The Chew will cease production at the end of this season, but will continue to air until September with all-new episodes in June.  In addition, ABC announced that Good Morning America will expand to three hours.  Thus, switching up the ABC morning line-up.

So, are you glad that The Chew got fried?  Is this justice for All My Children fans who miss their beloved Pine Valley?  Comment below.

Pine Valley’s Jenny Gardner, who is all grown up and had a successful career in primetime television and films, has landed a primo role on NBC’s hit drama, Chicago Fire!

Casting news has revealed that Kim Delaney is joining the show in Season 6 where she will play the role of Jennifer Sheridan, the mother of Kelly Severide (Taylor Kinney).

According to Deadline, Kim’s new role as Jennifer Sheridan is described as “warm, scripture-quoting and church-going. At one point she may have partied like it was 1979, but now it looks like she’s on the path of the straight and narrow. If you ask her, she’s moved on from the past, namely her messy divorce from her ex-husband Benny (Treat Williams), but old habits die very hard.”

Chicago Fire is currently on hiatus until after the Winter Olympics, when it begins again on March 1st.  As viewers know, in the last episode prior to the break, Kelly and Casey (Jesse Spenver) were seen jumping off a roof of a building while it was in flames in an exciting cliffhanger. (more…)
