On Wednesday’s episode of CBS afternoon series, The Talk, co-host Sharon Osbourne, spoke eloquently about addiction, and how amazing and adored Lovato is to her fans all around the world/

Here’s what Sharon Osbourne shared: “I think Demi admitted a couple months ago that she had a slip with her sobriety and I think what a lot of people don’t understand about addiction, whether its drink or drugs, it isn’t a choice, its something you’re born with, and every day is a battle… I know people who have been sober 25 years who have had slips, even longer and have gone out again, and it’s a battle that she will have to fight every day of her life. And it’s a hard battle. Every single day. And I think that she’s done amazing with her life so far, she’s had a slip, the one thing that is so bad is, is that obviously it can affect whether you live or die when you have a slip, but thank God she is awake, she is with her family, she is dearly loved by her family and her fans all over the world, everybody adores her. I just think that she is the bravest little girl I know, she constantly fights, she’s constantly open with her battle that she faces every single day of her life… I just wish her more strength. Demi, you’re a fighter. You can win this war, one day at a time.”

Hmmm. Would have been nice if this level of concern had been devoted to saving Cory Monteith…

My heart goes out to Demi Lovato. She has been so open and vulnerable with the general public about her struggles, and it makes you (me) just want to root for her. I watched a documentary that she did called “Stay Strong” and it was so raw and honest. To put yourself “out there” the way that she has/did is very courageous, and to struggle and succumb to your demons in front of millions has to be very hard. I hope that she realizes that she needs more help and is committed and open to receiving that help. (Mind you, if this was Justin Bieber or Miley Cyrus, I wouldn’t be so sympathetic).

You should know Osbourne….. All your kids were addicted to something or other ( are they still?) for years. Having you and your husband as role models speaks volumes. Had you cared about your children, you would have taken them away from that corrosive environment and left Ozzie….but, money had a greater pull for you!!
Everything out of your mouth is hypocritical when you are still in the midst of a dysfunctional family life. But, I guess, that’s the norm for you. Take your good-girl hat off.
As far as Demi, she has been taking diet pills since forever….combine that with drugs? …..the outcome is a no-brainer.
That’s Hollywood for you. I wish her well, with all my heart…..will she have learned her lesson? Rhetorical question!!

Who would’ve thought?! This morning I sit in the same exact spot knowing that today, my last episode will air as this beloved character. I reflect, and am grateful. I am better for having been a part of it all. Knowing I’ve laid her in a pair of loving and capable hands does me good. Thanks for the sweet ride, Abby. My heart is full today. Xx #Days #Milly#Chabby”

Soaps Lift Boycott Threat Of Daytime Emmys

In a key move to allow those performers in front of the camera and behind the scenes crew and creatives to be acknowledged for their accomplishments this calendar year, the four daytime dramas collectively have decided to lift their threatened boycott and participate in the upcoming 46th annual Daytime Emmy competition.

This comes after the four network soaps (Days of our Lives, General Hospital, The Bold and the Beautiful, and The Young and the Restless) banded together after being unsatisfied with snafu’s coming out of the 45th annual Daytime Emmy Awards earlier this year in April, and a list of grievances and concerns they asked to be addressed by the organization that administers the Emmy contest.

Then, following an internal investigation by NATAS by the law firm of Fletcher, Heald & Hildreth of Washington, DC, the results which were released on November 8th, and being in receipt of their findings, the soaps decided to move forward while still having concerns they want addressed.

In a statement from the group, a spokesperson related to Deadline, who broke the story late Friday: “As a group, we are not in agreement with all of the conclusions that NATAS reached.  However, in the spirit of working with NATAS and the TV Academy on improving the integrity of the Daytime Emmys, we have lifted our boycott. We look forward to meeting with NATAS to discuss their findings and our concerns in greater detail.”

On Saturday, someone close to the situation said to Michael Fairman TV: “Our participation doesn’t mean we accept their proposal moving forward, we still have major issues that we will be discussing with the Chair and President (of NATAS), but as a collective whole, we don’t want to penalize our actors for NATAS’ mis-management.”

The 46th Annual Daytime Emmy submissions began earlier this week on November 12th, with the Daytime Emmys slated to be handed out in early May of 2019.

So, are you glad that the network soaps have lifted their threatened boycott so that your favorite performers, whose performances you have loved over the last 11 months can be acknowledged for their talents and hard work? Share your thoughts via the comment section below.
