What does this have to do with OLTL? When I look here I would like to see news about OLTL. Not CC or TP or anything else. I’m so not interested in all this filler, I don’t care one bit about TP or CC or most of these articles. How about some news about PP and the lawsuit?

It’s time to put the RIP back on OLTL & AMC and call it a day. ]-(

Tika Sumpter and Peter Parros are both OLTL alumni. Eva Temargo was on Passions…. Parros was also on ATWT and Y&R. You cannot dictate was stories Fairman runs on his own website.

Please, this show can’t hold a candle to OLTL. I want to support Oprah and Tyler but this is just a awful show…imo. I wish Oprah would had invested into OLTL and even AMC. At least there was some substance and quality to it. IMO….ratings are good and are a reflection of how desperate people are for drama/soap shows… Please do better than this.

I thoroughly enjoyed this week’s episode of The Haves and the Have Nots, it was excellent. I’m a OLTL fan, but that is irrelevant, the show did not replace OLTL.

I wanted to like this show, I really did! I even set my DVR to record the series when it first came on. But after watching the first episode, I deleted it off the DVR and never watched again.
THE SHOW IS HORRIBLE, AWFUL, TERRIBLE, EMBARRASSING!
I’m shocked it’s still on the air, and trust me it wouldn’t be, if it was on mainstream network!

I absolutely love this show. Love love love the love hate between the judge and his wife. Love her and the way she puts him in his place. I watched the first episode and fell in love watched every episode and can’t wait for the new season to come about. It is awesome to see how tyler always puts God and Church and faith in his stories. He is totally awesome writer. Love it.

GENERAL HOSPITAL: Sonny Remembers Carly Just as She Is Marrying Jason

After nine months of being “Mike”, Sonny Corinthos (Maurice Benard) had a major breakthrough as his memory is all coming back to him now (as the Celine Dion song says), and in the process the Tan-O has burned to the ground, signaling the the probable end to the Nixon Falls arc of the story.

As the story picked-up on Thursday, Nina’s (Cynthia Watros) plot to keep Sonny for herself and away from Carly majorly backfired on her.  Not only does Phyllis (Joyce Guy) now know that Nina lied about “Mike’s” identify the entire time, but Peter August (Wes Ramsey) is running wild and free heading back to Port Charles to claim his baby and Maxie (Kirsten Storms), after setting fire to the building.

Since “Mike” ran in to save Nina and got hit by a beam in the process, he is alone in the burning Tan-O enveloped by flames, but that triggers the beginning of his memory coming back.

Meanwhile, back in Port Charles, Jason (Steve Burton) and Carly (Laura Wright) are at their wedding, with the five family mob bosses present with a plot of their own and everyone wondering if Jarly will say “I do'”.    The two light a candle together for those loved ones no longer with them … ah, Sonny!

Back the burning Tan-O, Sonny is visited by the vision of the real Mike (Max Gail) who tells him it’s time for him to go home now.  A conflicted Sonny tells Mike he is very happy in Nixon Falls with Nina, but Mike tells him he needs to know his past in order to move forward.  When Sonny has flashes of his violent past it frightens him, and he says whatever family he has is better off without him in their lives.

Jax (Ingo Rademacher) tries to text Maxie while still in Nixon Falls with Nina to watch out for Peter, but she is attending and managing Carly and Sonny’s wedding, so she doesn’t pick up the phone!

Inside the Tan-O, Sonny sees a vision of woman, who when she turns and faces him is Carly. While Sonny is lying on the floor and is engulfed in flames and trapped, Mike tells Sonny he can die as “Mike” or live on as the man he truly is, Sonny.  It is then Sonny calls out “Carly!”

So, what did you think of the episode? Do you think Carly and Jason will get married? Will Sonny tells Nina he remembers? What will Nina’s next move be? Are you glad Sonny seems to have his memory back? The episode featured another strong performance by Maurice Benard.  Share your thoughts below.

REPORT: Clayton Echard Cast as the Next ‘Bachelor’ for its Upcoming 26th Season

After all the turmoil of the previous ‘Bachelor’ seasons, it looks like the ABC reality-dating competition may have found their man.

Multiple sources are reporting that Clayton Echard, who no one has seen yet, and who appears as a suitor in Michelle Young’s season of The Bachelorette, has actually been given the nod to be the lead in the new upcoming 26th season of the series.

On Wednesday, leaked photos appeared online of Echard with a camera crew by E! News  questioning if he would be the new “Bachelor.”

Variety is saying that their sources are saying Echard is ABC’s choice for the lead, but that no official announcement will be forthcoming especially since Young’s season of The Bachelorette which bows October 19th had not even begun.

What we can glean on Echard from his Instagram page is that he is 28-years-old and from Missouri and played college football at U of Missouri and was signed as pro to play with tight end with the Seattle Seahawks, but he is now an orthopaedic saleman.

So, will you be watching the new season of The Bachelor when it comes around most likely in January 2022? Comment below.
