It’s weird, it’s not like I ever met Kristoff St. John, but I still can’t believe he’s gone. I remember the first day Neil walked into the doors of Newman Enterprise as a fresh faced, recent MBA graduate from Harvard. Dru fell in love with him at first sight and asked her Aunt Mamie (the Abbot cook and housekeeper) to teach her how to make crab cakes in order to win his heart through his stomach. Then she took ballet lessons in order to woe him further. Drucilla put out all the stops in order to win Neil over.
He was eternally handsome and youthful but life’s experiences made him all the wiser.
I will keep looking for him on Y&R–hard to believe Neil Winters is really gone.

Just reading this and I’m crying. Still so hard to believe he’s gone. He will forever be missed and I’m beyond happy that Shemar Moore is returning as Malcolm. No replacement EVER worked in his place so it’s fitting he’s returning for this. RIP Kristoff!

I think it will be very tastefully “acted”, of course realizing that those tears, most likely will be real mourning tears for their friend in real life. Definitely will be watching all episodes.

May Flights of Angels Wing You to Your Rest my Dear Friend. Your bigger than life, gregarious personality will leave a hole in our hearts forever.

That big belly laugh, bear hugs, bad puns, ability to harmonize to any song, great kitchen table singing-fests, and two steppin bad ass! “Johnny Numbers”, my All My Children soap stud, the great time keeper, Beatles fanatic ( I wish to God we could go back to “Yesterday”)… Kaya and I are beyond broken hearted, so stunned, sorry that my thoughts are a mess.

NATAS president and CEO Adam Sharp said of today’s decision: “These were extremely difficult decisions to make, but at the end of the day the health and safety of our event attendees and staff must remain our paramount concern,” NATAS president and CEO Adam Sharp said of today’s decision. “We are closely monitoring public heath authorities’ guidance, seeking feedback from our awards communities, and evaluating the flexibility of our venue and production partners as we plan for the future in this unprecedented context.”

 NATAS chairman Terry O’Reilly said on the change” “Given our concerns over the COVID-19 pandemic, we have decided that we will not be staging the 47th Annual Daytime Emmy Awards in Pasadena this coming June.  As there are so many unknowns right now with the flow of information changing on a daily, almost hourly, basis, it would simply be irresponsible to move forward with our annual celebration of excellence in daytime television at this time.”
