THE RONN MOSS INTERVIEW – THE BOLD AND THE BEAUTIFUL

Ron-main.jpgBy Michael Fairman

“On-Air On-Soaps” sat down with Ronn Moss this past week for a feature for TV SOAP Australia, where “B&B” is now airing on primetime! As the story heats up this week many lives and characters are on a collision course, thanks to Rick, Brooke and Ridge’s impending nuptials and Phoebe’s return. Fasten your seat belts for a rollercoaster ride . . . the Forrester way!

TV SOAP:

The Ridge/Rick feud and storyline is really heating up and getting interesting. Rick is doing some reprehensible things!

RONN:

Yeah, he is. Rick is getting obnoxiously devious, and he is a spoiled brat who needs to be put in his place.

TV SOAP:

What about when Rick fell over that very tall building and plummeted to the ground, thanks to seemingly, Ridge?

RONN:

People will go to any lengths to get attention, won’t they? (He laughs)

TV SOAP:

How is working with the reinvention of Rick as a ‘bad boy’, played by Kyle Lowder?

lowder1.jpgRONN:

Kyle is wonderful. I love it. He is a great combination of strength and whiny little tot! A whiny little snot-nosed, “Brooke’s son”!

TV SOAP:

Lest we forget, Ridge has been snot-nosed in the past?

RONN:

So I recognize it in others. Rick needs somebody to wipe his nose.

TV SOAP:

Recently, “B&B” fans were taken down memory lane with the Brooke and Ridge wedding from 15 years ago. In 2008, the characters went back to Zuma Beach, the place of the location, and met up there again for a significant moment in their
relationship. How was that to play?

RONN:

It was fun to go back to the same place to film. It’s nice because of its remoteness, and for the storyline. Just to go back and do it on our own with nobody else around, was nice this time. We had such a lavish wedding there before, so it was sentimental and all that stuff. It seemed like the most logical and economical place to go this time.

BrookeandRidgebeach1.jpgTV SOAP:

In the Zuma Beach location shoot, how did you like the lush romance of it all? Did it at times seem corny to you?

RONN:

I did not really think that. Actually, I thought it was quite nice. They built these beautiful sets on the beach, and it was lovely that it was just the two of us.

TV SOAP:

The show had gone back and forth, and back and forth with Ridge, either between Taylor or Brooke. Wasn’t that frustrating for you?

RONN:

In the last few years I have always said, “I have got to move on to something else other than Brooke and Taylor. You are not letting Ridge and Brooke have a go at it here. You never have for 20 years.” They just tease the fans to the point where I don’t think the fans really cared if Brooke and Ridge got back together, because the tease was over. Now I find when we are back together, and the characters are actually married again, that I am actually enjoying it.

TV SOAP:

Do you think now the show will make a commitment to let Ridge and Brooke be a somewhat stable couple for a while and let them stay married?

RONN:

They don’t usually do it, but maybe the transition will be now. I am hoping, anyway.

TV SOAP:

Starting in December, there is a huge story point where Rick and Phoebe get into a car accident with Rick at the wheel and Phoebe dies! Oh, this will be juicy! Rick looks responsible for killing Ridge’s daughter.

RonWindsor1.jpgRONN:

We have a lot of great stuff coming up, and we will see how it goes. Even Winsor Harmon (Thorne) remarked to me on his way out of the set this morning, “Did you see yesterday’s show? It was really cool!” It’s just that we are getting back to three simultaneous stories on air. We were used to relying on one or two stories a day, but now it makes it more interesting, and adds more spice in the mix of “B&B”.

TV SOAP:

How do you see Ridge’s romantic stance, navigating between Brooke and Taylor?

RONN:

It’s always been Brooke for Ridge, for the last long while. With Taylor, I think Ridge just takes the time to consult with Taylor to let her know, “We had these kids together, and I will always be in your life no matter what… but I am going with Brooke.” It’s a destiny thing.

TV SOAP:

After the Rick/Taylor romance, it looked like Ridge might end up back with her, but then it didn’t. Did you know you were going to end up with Brooke at this point?

ridgetaylor.jpgRONN:

I didn’t really know, but I was hoping I would not ping-pong back and forth between Brooke and Taylor again. Fortunately, we are still going, and what we thought would happen did not. As characters we thought, “Well, that’s it for Kelly and me. It’s on to Hunter.” Then that didn’t happen and it got siphoned back to us, and I went, “Wow, that was unexpected, even for us!”

TV SOAP:

What would you say is your acting technique when rehearsing and preparing scenes?

RONN:

Mine is “flailing” from day to day, that’s how best I would describe it. (He laughs)

TV SOAP:

John McCook (Eric) said to me in a recent TV SOAP interview that you are the true icon of “B&B”. He went on to say, “You are so known for that square-jawed, good looking guy, and your acting has gotten better and better.” What would you say to that?

RONN:

I would say, “The payments I have been giving him all these years are working!”

johnmccook.jpgTV SOAP:

How is working with John, after all these years?

RONN:

I love working with John. He is a hoot, and we always laugh when we are together. It’s hard for us to keep a straight face, because we get each other laughing and can’t stop.

TV SOAP:

John and I also discussed how at times the men on “B&B” are portrayed as weak in storyline. How do you feel about that statement?

RONN:

I think John has always had an issue with that, because they always made Eric the wishy-washy guy. So, Stephanie seems to be the big matriarch of the show, when in fact, John has very much his own strengths. But yes, the guys in a drama series are at times made to be unconscious or a buffoon, which makes the other character a little more knowing. Well, somebody’s got to do it right!

TV SOAP:

Ronn, do you notice a difference in your portrayal of Ridge since you started on the show, and how the different storylines have affected him and shaped how you’ve played him over the years?

RONN:

I am kind of in a position, and so looking in the mirror everyday I didn’t see that. You would probably be a better judge of that than I would. I am too close to it to really know if Ridge had evolved or grown, or not grown.

ronfight1.jpgTV SOAP:

What can we say to your fans in Australia to look for down the line in the Rick/Ridge feud? Will there be a big showdown?

RONN:

I think there has to be an impending showdown because Rick is not finished. He thinks he is supposed to be in control of all things Forrester.

TV SOAP:

So, Rick’s whole demeanor and new attitude was partially spurred on by feeling he was second best, or even third best, in his father Eric’s mind?

RONN:

He thinks the whole world owes him everything, but he does not have the experience to back it up. He had not put in
his time to learn the business, and that is
Ridge’s big contention.

TV SOAP:

Do you see Ridge as the hero?

RONN:

Yes. I don’t know if that actually plays out on air, but in my own demented mind it does. (He laughs). I would like Ridge to be the hero, but it does not always pan out that way. I have had my ass kicked too many times on the show one way or another, and I have to bite the bullet and go, “Well, it is what it is.”

TV SOAP:

Katherine Kelly Lang (Brooke), and you have worked together so very long. Does it get difficult doing the same sort of scenes over and over again?

wedding.jpgRONN:

It’s not that simplistic. We both love working with each other. I can speak for her on that, too. We are comfortable working with each other, so it makes things a lot easier that way. However, the one thing we both share is how hard it is to keep doing this and have our lives outside. Even though it’s a half hour show, we still carry the brunt of it, and Kelly has her own family and I have my own family.

TV SOAP:

Speaking of your family, how are your daughters? How is fatherhood going?

RONN:

My little Callie, just turned ten. Fatherhood is lovely, and one of the best parts of my life. I think it keeps me on my toes. I constantly have to rethink, “Am I doing this right?” I have to concern myself with my girls’ development, and how they perceive the world, and how they are thinking. I have to be subtle enough to encourage them in the right direction, because I very much take my job as dad seriously. I take it so seriously that I joke about it with them as much as I can, just so they don’t know I am taking it so seriously! It’s the number one job for me, more than anything else. I consider every action or raised eyebrow I do important, because it may affect how they perceive it.

realpulling.jpgTV SOAP:

How do you like the plot point where Ridge was pulling the plug on his own father in his hospital room? What did you think when you read it in the script for the first time?

RONN:

That was pretty amazing, actually. I was just feeling the scene as it was for real. Having Ridge feeling he was hearing that his dad talked to him, I can totally understand
how that could affect somebody.
Then, after the fact being told,
“No, you are hallucinating.”
We have all had a situation
where our reality gets blurred.

TV SOAP:

Do you ever get to work with Brandon Beemer (Owen)?

RONN:

I have not had that much of a chance to work with Brandon, but we have been hanging out more off set than working together. Brandon is a lovely human being. He is a true to heart kid, and true to spirit.

TV SOAP:

What do you think we can expect from Ridge Forrester in 2009?

ridge-brooke.jpgRONN:

I think Ridge is going to take more control than he has in awhile. That would be over the company, and his relationship. He seems more decisive now, and I am very much enjoying that.

TV SOAP:

What about how Rick manipulates things? How will that manifest itself in trying to destroy the newly found happiness of Ridge and Brooke?

RONN:

I don’t think so at all. I think Ridge will get smarter in how he deals with the amazing woman in his life, Brooke. He will get smarter to the things that are trying to undermine it, like Rick.

TV SOAP:

Did you ever vocalize to “B&B” head writer and executive producer, Brad Bell, any frustration you may have had with your character, in regards to the Brooke/Ridge relationship?

RONN:

I have never actually asked him anything about that. But years ago, I told him of my frustrations, that they never leave us together long enough to do anything. I leave it up to Brad to write the show. If I have a cool suggestion, I might take it to him. But I don’t usually have time.

TV SOAP:

What are your Holiday plans?

ridgebusiness.jpgRONN:

I just want to stay home and enjoy Christmas, and New Year’s with my family and friends around me, because traveling is just too much of a bitch….. and there we go!

TV SOAP:

What would you like to tell all of your fans ‘down under’?

RONN:

Give my love to my Australian fans. I am hoping we can work something else out in the future for me to see you, and at the very least, providing some new music they can find on my website, www.ronnmoss.com. I want to tell them to please keep in touch.

Days Of Our Lives

NATAS President, Adam Sharp Talks On Daytime Emmy Review Findings & Plans For Change To Competition Process

In the aftermath of the letter that was sent to NATAS from daytime drama executives and producers demanding immediate change to the Daytime Emmys contest procedures, guidelines, or they would boycott participating in the upcoming 46th Annual competition, earlier today NATAS and its new president, Adam Sharp, released the findings of an independent investigation into the allegations levied against the academy and its annual competition.

After the full findings came to light , seemed to address most of the concerns raised by the four network soaps, Michael Fairman TV spoke with Adam Sharp to dive into what the reports means for change and evolution of the Daytime Emmys, and if it can resolve the issues so that General Hospital, The Young and the Restless, The Bold and the Beautiful, and Days of our Lives will come to the table and participate in the only kudofest honoring excellence in front of the camera and behind-the-scenes for daytime programming,

Here’s what Adam had to say about the key points addressed in our conversation below.

Transparency was a key issue noted by the soap producers in their concerns levied against NATAS.   One of the points centered around if NATAS had prior knowledge of the winners before the opening of the envelopes at the ceremony and the integrity of the contest.  What can you detail what the investigation found?

ADAM:  On the matter of whether anyone had prior knowledge to the winners, the reports clearly state that there is no evidence to support that. To the concern raised on the arm’s length distance necessary between us and the accountants we use to tally the votes, again there is no evidence to suggest that there was anything short of what you would expect of the standards of the competition. What it did find was that there were processes that either by virtue of generosity and us trying to be helpful when they asked, or by a lack of documentation to make people aware of policies and procedures, that created the appearance of unfairness, or unbalance in the process that may have been completely unintentional.  For example, the report noted that we did not have a published procedure for appealing decisions or filing any concerns or complains.  Some of this started because of one entrant in a digital category that raised concerns, and it was certainly elevated when the four soaps sent their letter, but without a published procedure, you’re really putting the onus on the entrants to know who to call and how to bring their concern.  So, that creates a system where there’s an imbalance because someone who doesn’t know who to call, doesn’t get the same hearing.  Likewise, if someone has made a mistake or technical error in their entry, and they happen to have entered the process early, and we catch it, we, in the past, have gone back to people and said, “Hey, I don’t think you intended to do this.  Would you like to resubmit?”  But if someone is entering at 11:59:59 on deadline night, they won’t necessarily have that.  Again, completely unintentional, but it could be argued that it created an imbalance or bias in the process, and the report made that clear.  For those types of things, we are going to crack down and be more consistent about our policies.  I told Brent and David that it’s going to mean saying no a lot more often in terms of giving waivers and extensions, and the types of things that we have done in the past to help people along. It is going to mean being more transparent and public about what our policies and procedures are so that every entrant has the equal set of knowledge to work from.

Does this mean a demotion for David Michaels, Senior VP Daytime Emmy Awards?

ADAM:  Absolutely not.  That’s something that I want to put a very strong pin in right here.  David led the 2018 Daytime Emmys to record participation and a growing audience.  This new resourcing of the team allows him to be more singularly focused on doubling down on that success for 2019.  The Daytime Emmys are the only entertainment award show to have posted year-over-year audience growth from 2017 to 2018, and more than 30% increase in the number of entries.  The report rightly noticed that we did not do enough administratively to scale to that growth and to bring the resources to manage that added audience, and that added interest from competitors.  So, now we are going to make sure that David and Brent Stanton (Executive Director, Daytime Emmy Awards) each have the support and focus they need to be successful.

When the letter from various soap producers pointed out a “conflict of interest” for having the executive producer of the Daytime Emmys ceremony also be the awards administrator, many were wondering how that would shake out, or how NATAS planned to deal with this complaint.

ADAM:  Obviously, “conflict of interest” is a legal term of course, but I think that what the reports found was that it was not a conflict of interest.  It was a conflict of time, and many of the more specific errors that were raised in the report, as I said to David, occurred in the 25th hour of the day.  So, that is where it was really a resourcing problem, and a lack of procedure and policy problem.  The lack of resourcing created the environment for something to go wrong, and the lack of policy and procedure created an ad hoc nature for how we address those problems and made that ad hoc response open to questions because there was no prior documentation that this was how these things should be handled.  So, hopefully we have addressed each of these areas going into 2019, and that gives us a chance at a fresh start with the community.

In response to the internal investigation findings, you mentioned you would bring additional resources to the Daytime Emmys, additional help in the operations, and you would add a “second pair of eyes”.  Would you potentially let people know who is in those positions that would be working with David Michaels and Brent Stanton?

ADAM:  Yes, so we are absolutely at a minimum committed to adding one full time position, and a handful of part time positions for that initial vetting process of the competition; that review of entries to make sure they meet the technical requirements, rules, and guidelines of their categories.  Now, in the past, there would be one individual, one set of eyes conducting that review, but now, we are modifying our policies such that before any adverse decision is made, such as disqualifying an entry, a second pair of eyes review it and give their independent assessment of the technical criteria and qualifications of the entry, so that there can be more confidence that multiple perspectives were employed before making any decision that could have an adverse effect on an entry.

Could a daytime drama actor participate and submit their work on n their own without the show being a part of it, if let’s say, the soaps won’t participate as a whole? And on that note, what would be the plans moving forward for the Daytime Emmys if the soaps decide not to participate in the competition?

ADAM:  If an actor or actress wishes to enter on their own with their soap still not participating: our rules permit anyone to enter independent of their program.  So, there is not a requirement that a show participate for an individual performer on that show to participate.  That said, they need to have the actual material to submit, and certainly a performer on that show is not necessarily the owner of that show and the owner of that content.  So, the question of whether they would have the necessary access to and rights to the video material to submit, that would be a question to the show producers as to what they would allow of that. In terms of the Daytime Emmy ceremonies moving forward without the soaps, the old saying goes, ‘the show must go on,’ and hopefully, it won’t come to that.  We have had constructive conversations with each of the broadcast soaps and believe our response and support goes a long way to addressing their concerns.  So, we are looking forward to having them.  Of course, they have a number of colleagues in digital drama, children’s programming, gameshows, and the rest of daytime television that we still expect to have a robust program at the 46th Annual Daytime Emmys in May of 2019.

You had mentioned that when you saw the results of the report that you felt it was very thorough, and you felt it pointed out things that needed to be fixed.

ADAM:  Yes, the report was exceedingly thorough and fair.  It delivered criticism where criticism was due, and there were a number of areas where we should have and must do better in the management of the Daytime Emmys and our other awards competitions.  I think the report certainly examined every issue that had been raised by members of the Daytime community and then some.  It allowed us to think about what actions we can take as a team to address each of those points.  I don’t think any awards show in our space has ever undertaken such an in-depth introspection of their procedures, yet alone made it public.  So, hopefully we are a trend-setter here.

The report indicates that NATAS will work more closely with the Television Academy (ATAS).  That seems to always be a point of contention.  How do you see yourself improving participation with them to engage that academy in more of the process?

ADAM:  So, the relationship between the two academies has strengthened incredibly in the past year, largely through the leadership of our respective chairman, Terry O’Reilly, the chairman of NATAS, who was elected earlier this summer and Hayma Washington at the Television Academy.  Obviously, they are going to have a new election soon as Hayma is retiring from the role.  So, we can continue that momentum into 2019.  What we note in our response to the report, was that one element of concern raised in the letter from the four soap producers was the mix of Television Academy members on our judging panels, and we want to be responsive to that.  We are prepared to make Television Academy membership a much higher priority in our consideration of judges for these panels, but obviously accessing that membership and engaging that membership requires a deeper partnership with the Television Academy, and we will see to that.

You are starting the call for entries on Monday, November 12th.  If the daytime dramas don’t participate within the timeframe you’ve given, do you see yourself adjusting the timeframe for the soaps if they were to say, “We want to work somethings out before we commit,” or are you just going to move forward if they are not participating in the deadlines you’ve set?

ADAM:  Our deadlines are going to be rather firm for all entrants.  We have a show date set for May and a process that moves backward from there in terms of the time that is needed.  Certainly, the fact that we have added additional review steps and procedures makes that timeline even more critical.  So, we are not going to be in a position to be extending extensions really to anyone.  In fact, the report specifically discourages granting extensions to anyone because that could create the appearance of unfairness that some types of entries get more time than other types of entries.  We welcome everyone, and if by the entry deadline there are particular genres, programs, or individuals that choose not to participate, we will miss them, hope they attend the show in May, and hope we can reengage them for 2020.

If the soaps did not participate in the 46th annual Daytime Emmys, but decided to come back later, it is my understanding that there would just be one drama category whereby web series and daytime soaps would be competing together in that.  Is that potentially what could happen?

ADAM:  I don’t want to go too many branches down off a tree of ‘what if’s,’ but our policies and guidelines do allow that if a category does not have a sufficient number of participants to be competitive, then that category can be eliminated or merged with another category or have its entries moved into another category for the competition.  So, we will look at all of the categories once we have the entries to see which ones remain viable and which ones do not.  Certainly, the fact that we do have digital drama categories gives us a place to contribute to have a drama competition regardless of what mix of entries we have.  I suspect that once you combine those, it becomes very difficult to uncombine them in the future, but obviously the call to entries is revisited every year, so, I can’t think of any long-term prognostications beyond 2019.

Since you are relatively new to your position with NATAS, you probably weren’t expecting that the producers that signed the letter demanding that change and issues be addressed in regard to the Daytime Emmys or they would boycott, would be something you would be dealing with off the bat.  How did you feel about it?

ADAM:  Well, I’m obviously rather new to the role.  My first day as interim president was the day after the Daytime Emmy show this year.  I was only named the permanent president last week.  It was certainly a trial by fire.  I would not say that I had enough history with the daytime drama community to have any expectation one way or another, and I think that is also true of our chairman, Terry O’Reilly, who came into office on July 1st.  That said, in a world of looking for silver linings, I think it gave us an opportunity for a blank slate and a fresh start.  By the community raising these concerns to our attention, and allowing us to conduct this deep review and make it public and be responsive to the issues they raised, it gives us a lot more opportunity to strengthen that relationship in 2019 than if a lot of these concerns had just continued to deteriorate and be whispered about at various cocktail parties, but never really spoken up and therefore, never really addressed.  So, while it was a painful process and there were parts of this report that were difficult to read, I think it gave us the opportunity to start from scratch and to put some of that history behind us.

So, do you think NATAS has addressed the concerns of the daytime dramas? What did you think of the points raised by Adam Sharp in this interview? Do you hope the Emmys will continue as usual with all four network soaps participating? Share your thoughts in the comment section below.

Eileen Davidson Farewell Y&R Interview: From Her Exit Storyline, To Her Co-Stars, And Her Decision To Leave

In a candid and heartfelt conversation, The Young and the Restless exiting Daytime Emmy-winning star, Eileen Davidson sat down with Michael Fairman to discuss her decision to exit the series after playing Ashley Abbott on and off since 1982.

Eileen’s final episodes are now airing on the CBS daytime drama series.  Just how will it end for Ashley?  How will she leave the canvas?  How sad will be her goodbyes?  Y&R fans are counting down now to just a few more airshows that feature Eileen.

During this interview for the Michael Fairman Channel, Eileen clarified many points that the audience has wanted to know about or come to understand, in particular, what led to her making the decision to call it quits, and would she ever return and how would she feel if the series recast her role.

In regard to what went into her decision to depart Genoa City, Eileen expressed: “It’s something I gave a lot of thought to.  Not something you can just go, ‘Gee, this week I want to leave!’  I was really thinking about it for over a year ago.  I talked it over with my husband and he was very supported of me.  My son is in high school and my stepson had left the nest and it had gone by so quickly.  I was like, ‘Wait! What happened?’  I was spending a lot of time in my car commuting; like two hours a day, and a lot of time in my dressing room, because our days are longer here than they used to be, and a myriad of reasons went into it.  It was not just one simple thing.  It was actually a whole bunch of reasons.  Even though I won the Emmy (Eileen won Lead Actress back in April of this year) I had pretty much decided long before then.  (Winning the Emmy) That was like “Oh, my God!”  That actually made me feel my timing was really right … I get this incredible nod right before I’m leaving.”

The emotional part of leaving the place she has called her home away from home for Davidson is saying goodbye to her beloved co-stars including; her on-screen big brother, Peter Bergman (Jack Abbott).  As Y&R viewers know, over the years Jack and Ashley’s relationship, and Bergman and Davidson, have shared plenty of screen-time together.  Eileen also gives a very special thanks to the fans who have supported her through the years and who have followed Ashley’s journey.

Davidson expressed on her final storyline revolving the “Blood Abbott” clause and how it all ties up, “It’s such a great way to go.  It’s so awesome how this whole thing comes up, and you realize how being an Abbott has affected her to her core.”

Now below watch Eileen’s farewell interview filled with clips from her performances and time on Y&R, and more heartfelt topics of conversation.

Then in the comment section below; tell us what you have thought of Ashley’s exit storyline?  What do you hope happens for Ashley? What was your favorite part of this interview and the sentiments shared by Eileen?

General Hospital

Genie Francis Talks On Her Return To GH, Fans Outcry Of Support & Her All-Time Favorite Storylines

On Tuesday, Genie Francis participated in a Satellite Media Tour with television stations and press outlets around the U.S. chatting it up on her return to her iconic role of Laura on ABC’s General Hospital.

Francis, who quickly wrapped-up her run after she was taken off-contract with the show back in January of this year, saw her and Laura exit Port Charles swiftly in a story-move that felt stilted to the audience.

After a huge outpouring of support on social media, GH fans cried foul on the play and wanted one of the series mainstays of all-time back where she belonged.

Francis elaborate it on that in our interview on seeing the show of support: “I couldn’t believe how long it went on and how big it was.  I think part of that was it looked like they were finally giving me a story with the major storyline, and then they yanked it so quickly, and I think people felt cheated.”

GH listened and brought Genie back to the canvas with a new storyline that puts her front and center on the series, as Laura is unaware that her husband Kevin (Jon Lindstrom) is locked up in Ferncliff, while his evil twin Ryan (Jon Lindstrom) has taken his place. Now Laura is reeling from the strange behaviors being exhibited by her “husband”. Will she figure it out in time? Will she run for mayor again?

During her conversation with Michael Fairman TV and the Michael Fairman Channel, Genie touched on what she knew was going to be happening for Laura when she came to the show: “I knew we were going to start with the Ryan beat, which I thought was great. Everyone loves a good sociopath (laughs) and Jon (Lindstrom) is a wonderful actor.  It makes for an exciting story!”

Genie goes on to say that she is: “Just happy to have story, because it’s awfully boring to just be hanging around. I don’t want to be window-dressing. If it came to that, I think I might just leave.”

As to if Laura has a vendetta against Valentin (James Patrick Stuart) who for all intent and purposes murdered her son, Nikolas, Genie weighed-in: “She absolutely has a vendetta. I think right now, Laura who has the biggest heart and is kind of like the heroine of the show in many ways –  but this is the one person on the planet who she truly hates, and it would be interesting if she had to go through the exercise of forgiving him, but I also like that there is that one place where we can see all of that negativity and evil come out. I like that Laura has a dark side.  I really like that.”
