Well on Saturday,the Daytime Emmy winning star officially launched his products and supplement company, via a new website, Burton Nutrition.com

On Friday, Steve sent out a viral video to his email distribution list previewing his new health and fitness business. And, not only does Burton know a thing or two, or three, about working out, dieting, and how to stay fit and eat right, Steve’s wife Sheree Gustin and brother-in-law, Jon Gustin are also major into the field.

The first product Burton Nutrition is offering is “The Get Fit Kit”: which is said to be the perfect shake for a one meal replacement a day, and weight loss, but it may also be used as a snack, or a post-workout recovery drink.

Within the navigation of the nutrition website, coming soon will be a challenge, VIP, and social community sections.  So, if you are setting out to improve your health, lose weight, or workout , you don’t have to do it all alone.

Nice article to get the word out about his new business.

No, that business was shut down due to false claims.

Yeah, janet…I hope he markets something authentic. I do wish him the best, but liquid diets are kind of ‘iffy’….not healthy and not endorsed by ‘caring’ doctors.

Steve Burton, since around 2005, has looked so bloated, though. Very similar to somebody that abuses steroids.

I doubt people will take diet advice from him.

Addison

Why does this actor, who clearly does not need more money, keep coming up with these get rich quick schemes which always seem a bit shady in a pyramid scheme kind of way? I checked out the ingredients on his Whey protein powder and they’re pretty standard. I have a jar of why protein in my pantry which sounds identical to the one he’s now pitching only the one I bought cost half as much. Moreover, his approach in substituting a protein shake for a meal is hardly a ground breaking concept as this diet strategy has been around since… Read more »

I don’t know about that, Terri. I’m a woman, and not going nuts. I have never found him attractive…..ever!!
Most women like a toned male body….not necessarily bulging muscles. Personally, it’s a turn off….too beefy.
No doctor would ever advise someone to diet on these liquid mixtures. Not healthy!!

Julia, my heart goes out to you. Please, I urge you to go talk to your doctor about this.
Steve Burton cannot help you. All he can help you do is help you part with your money.
You can do this, but I totally understand why you feel helpless.
Please consider Weight Watchers or any medically supervised diet. If you’re a member of Kaiser, they offer a medically supervised diet.
I just urge you to not fall victim to these typea of scams. They will only make your pocket book lighter, not your body.
YOU can do this!

I’m saddened by people that would go to such efforts to make rude remarks about Steve Burton on here. They must not have much else to do with their time. I love you and your efforts to better your life on and off screen, Steve. ‘Haters gonna hate.’ Right?

I agree with you. I like Steve. I am not in his fan club. I commend him for trying something different. These soaps, they are great but at ABC and NBC, they constantly play with the actors futures and us fans. Everyone needs a plan B. Go Steve!

Okay, Timmmy, granted. I am sure Steve has gone through the right channels to market his product. But, advocating it on these sites could be perilous. He has the advantage because of his celebrity status….no excuse. Case in point…..The above lady, Julia Rich. We are not talking about a few pounds here. No liquid diet in the world can help someone lose that much weight without drastic consequences. Kay is right. No one is in any position to give ‘lose weight fast’ advise. People will do drastic things when in drastic situations. This is flirting with danger. This amount of… Read more »

Oh cry me a river! Positioned at the top of the pyramid, Burton made a killing off of the aquia berry juice business not to mention the fortune he made as one of the highest paid day time actors in recent history. Check out the price of this protein powder and compare it to similar powders which are available at GNC and note the mark up disparities. This angers me because there are folks out there who are desperate for help who, unlike Mr. Burton, are living pay check to pay check (see Julia Rich’s post above ). There are… Read more »

Rude remarks, Angela? It is a fact that liquid diets with ‘bad’ ingredients kill….especially our youth. I am sure Steve is an honest man. However, be that as it may, I just caution people to consult with a doctor before going on any diet or ingesting anything.
We gave general comments here; not attacking Burton personally. Let’s hope his brand is nutritious and en par with the FDA….this is his second time around!!
As I said, I wish him the best.

Celia I could not stay silent on this enough I am tired of actors I use that word loosely taking advantage of viewers for their financial gain my gosh people get sucked into anything ! This is free advice low carb diet and exercise works wonders and I just gave it FREE

Celia
Guest
Celia

Exactly, Kay. I am not knocking Steve’s brand. I simply care about people ….big, damaging mistake for consumers to blindly go on a diet of this kind, simply because it is pushed by a celebrity, as you say. I repeat, I am not targeting Steve….speaking in general, here.
Someone very close to me is a Cardiologist…..Soooo…..

Great advice K. Richard Simmons meant well with his programs. Some do, most dont but the public gets desperate and Hollywood envious!

I agree with you, everyone should consult a doctor and or a nutritionist. “Magic juice or Pills” are ridiculous for sure but maybe he uses and believes in the product. He seems like a good guy who wouldnt sell something he didnt believe in?

Steve should stick to acting instead of his “get rich quick” schemes. I remember a few years ago Steve promoted diet shakes and it went bust then. He was passionate about that. Then it was the berry juice that went bust for him. He was passionate about that too. This Hollywoodschooling deal with Derk Cheetwood, IMO, is just to help out of work Derk make some money. So he’s helping him. Now it’s time to help out his brother-in-law (who probably needs the money) so make it a family investment. Steve is promoting diet and nutrition, but promotes his Jack… Read more »

I have mixed feelings about this. Burton’s not claiming to be a doctor…he’s not selling anything that isn’t already out there. He’s banking on his celebrity…just like so many other actors from Paul Newman’s sauces to cat food…Suzanne Somers…celebs who endorse others products they probably know nothing about and on and on. One has to be an informed consumer. Obviously Steve’s in great physical shape, he said he’s going for his nutrition certificate…his wife and brother-in-law have certificates…they all exercise and are role models for those who aspire to get in shape. As long as he’s not touting anything dangerous… Read more »

GH Faves Finola Hughes, Ian Buchanan, Brooklyn Rae Silzer, Marc Anthony Samuel In New IGTV Series, ‘Enter Exit’

This week, General Hospital’s Finola Hughes (Anna) and some very good friends and acting partners debuted in a new IGTV series, directed by Hughes amid the COVID-19 pandemic, and it’s a thriller! What else would we expect from the woman who plays super spy Anna Devane on the ABC daytime drama series.

The IGTV (Instagam’s longer video application) series is called, Enter Exit, and there are 11 episodes, and the first one dropped on Monday.  It is  written by TV scribe Matt Boren, and also stars some of Port Charles’ longtime favorites that include: Ian Buchanan (Ex-Duke), Brooklyn Rae Silzer (Emma) and Marc Anthony Samuel (Felix).

Hughes told SOD how she was inspired to come up with the concept for the show:  “I started to think about, if you’re in lockdown, what would be a narrative where you could act in a vacuum, basically? I first started thinking about what my character would be — a retired (government) agent. And then there’s some reason that I’m retired. And I started to think about stationary shots and walking into your closeup and all those kinds of things. I left (the rest) with Matt; it was basically, ‘Whatever he writes, we’ll do.’ And I just sort of concentrated on how, feasibly, we could do it.”’

Boren, who has been an ardent viewer of GH from its hey day, shared on working off Hughes seeds of an idea to what Enter Exit is about: “In a sense, it’s a local detective thriller that starts out small — and understandably so as season one takes place during the pandemic. However, what we seed throughout these first 11 mini-episodes hints at a show that longs to be on a much larger, more global scale. We were absolutely inspired by ’80s GH — the WSB, the espionage and larger than life stories that were so thrilling, and through Devane/Scorpio/Lavery/Donnelly/Jones, so grounded. Throw that in with some Killing Eve, X-Files and (this will make sense down the line) Stranger Things, and you have a recipe that might be pages away in our cookbook.”

Now check out episode 1 below featuring Hughes and Silzer and make sure to follow Finola’s IG account for all-new installments of Enter Exit.

So, what do you think about the concept of the series? Excited to see more? Let us know via the comment section.

Days Of Our Lives

GH’s Maurice Benard and DAYS Kassie DePaiva Named “Power Performances of the Week”

Two daytime vets in two very opposing types of storylines delivered emotional and riveting work during their scenes.  First on General Hospital, Maurice Benard (Sonny) in yet another stellar knockout performance in the Alzheimer’s storyline; showed the anguish and pain of a son trying to come to terms with his father’s ultimate fate.

This week saw Sonny originally deciding to try to prolong Mike’s (Max Gail) life by having him placed on a feeding tube, but soon after seeing the fate of Yvonne, another Alzheimer’s patient, and a talk with Elizabeth (Rebecca Herbst), Sonny changed course, and did what’s best for Mike, not for himself, and decided to let his father die with dignity and with as least suffering as possible.

We don’t think there could have been a dry eye in the house when Sonny visited Mike’s hospital bedside, and told him that it’s OK for his dad to let go, and not have to stick around for him.  Max Gail, as per usual, was also so touching in these scenes.

Benard did not overplay a beat, and for anyone who has had a parent die of this dreadful disease, you could relate to what Sonny went through in the more than capable hands of this two-time Daytime Emmy winner.

Over on Days of our Lives, what a return for Kassie DePaiva in her role as Eve Donovan! This time, she has come back unhinged and at an emotional rock bottom, so much so that she had abducted Ben Weston (Rob Scott Wilson), had him taken to an abandoned warehouse, strapped him up, tortured him with an assist from Dr. Rolf’s protege, Vincent (Michael Teh), and came up with this twisted plot to have Ben turn back into the “necktie serial killer” and kill his bride, Ciara (Victoria Konefal).

Why, you say? Well, because Eve’s daughter, Paige was one of Ben’s victims and it has been eating Eve alive this whole time. She is a mama grieving for her daughter so deeply that she can’t understand why Paige is dead and he is left on earth to roam around free and find love and happiness… and we find out she was gutted when Ben got a last-minute reprieve when he was recently sentenced to death by lethal injection.

DePaiva played this arc of Eve’s story as a soapalicious villain, but when you really deconstruct it, Eve is just in so much pain… and all of that came through even in the darkest of scenes.  And … there is yet more to come!

Kudos to Maurice and Kassie for being named Michael Fairman TV’s “Power Performances of the Week”.

So, do you agree with our picks for Maurice and Kassie? What did you think of their work? Comment below.

OLTL Alum Christopher Cousins Appears on General Hospital as Dante’s Doctor

On Thursday, the very shrewd fans of daytime drama, noticed a very familiar face on General Hospital in scenes with Dominic Zamprogna in Dante’s return storyline.

Playing Dante’s Doctor turned out to be Christopher Cousins, most soap-famous for his role as Cain Rogan on One Life to Live from 1991 to 1994 and later reprising the role of the conman back in 2008.  Cain was romantically involved with Tina Lord (Andrea Evans) while in story in Llanview.

Cousins also made appearance on two other daytime drama: as Greg Houston on Another World in 1986 and as Colin Crowley on As the World Turns in 1990.  More recently Christopher has been appearing in numerous primetime TV shows and films.

So, do you hope Christopher sticks around on General Hospital?  Do you think it’s just a guest stint for him to serve Dante’s story? Share your thoughts via the comment section below.
