Suds Report – Engen update, Kanan to "Y&R" and more!

engan_sweater.jpgThis week’s Suds Report has an update on the Chris Engen travesty that occured a few days ago. Nelson Branco reports:

“Meanwhile, the Y&R cast is understandably upset with Engen who is walking out in the middle of a front-burner storyline during its climax. One of Engen’s co-stars tells The Suds Report that various cast members tried to convince him not to leave this meaty role. “Forget the gay thing for a moment,” says one leading man. “He’ll never work in Hollywood again because he walked out in the middle of a contract. You don’t do that.”

Another co-star claims Engen has been reportedly battling personal demons/issues for a while now. “He’s been ‘off;’ we’re not sure what’s happening with him. I think Chris is dealing with more than having to play out this [untraditional] gay storyline. He’s Catholic, but I think it’s more than that. As far as most of us know, Adam is straight, not gay — he [just has an affair] with Rafe to keep him quiet about Adam’s [plot to haunt Ashley].”

Insiders report the stressed-out actor had been relaying his concerns over his “dark and disturbing” storyline with producers and writers, expressing his fear that his character was becoming too evil and irredeemable. “Chris hates everything about his storyline,” says another co-star. “No one gets it — it’s a soap opera. We all wish we had his storyline.”

‘Ambitions’ Canceled By OWN After One Season

After an excellent first season of drama and backstabbing, the soapy nighttime Ambitions has been canceled by OWN.

The cable outlet offered up this statement from OWN President, Tina Perry: “We’re thankful to Will Packer, Jamey Giddens and the entire cast and crew of Ambitions for their creativity and hard work on the show. Every week they delivered great drama, intrigue and a lot of fun storytelling.  We look forward to continue working with Will Packer and his talented team of collaborators in the future.”

The series which starred Robin Givens as Stephanie Lancaster Carlisle was hailed as a multigenerational family saga centered around classic soap character, Stephanie, who finds herself going head to head with some of the most powerful and deceitful players in the city of Atlanta and we learn she can play deceitful like nobody’s business … too!

Ambitions was produced by Will Packer Media in association with Lionsgate and Lionsgate-owned distributor Debmar-Mercury. Packer was executive producer. Arkadie was executive producer/showrunner. Writer Jamey Giddens and Will Packer Media’s Sheila Ducksworth also served as executive producers.

Givens took to Instagram and shared her disappointment on the cancellation. “mood 🙁 found out last week #Ambitions wouldn’t be returning for a second season ….”
