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.

Lori Loughlin Pleads Not Guilty Following Indictment In College Bribery Scheme

Ex-Edge of Night, When Calls The Heart, and Fuller House star, Lori Loughlin entered a plea of not guilty along with her husband, fashion designer, Mossimo Giannulli to the federal government.  The couple are currently facing charges of conspiracy to commit fraud and conspiracy to commit money laundering in the now infamous college admissions scandal.

Loughlin and Giannulli allegedly paid $500,000 to get their two daughters designated as recruits to the University of Southern California’s crew team, though neither girl participated in the sport, thereby facilitating their admission to the university.

The couple were part of a yearlong investigation and now scandal with 33 parents who have been arrested, including Desperate Housewives’ star, Felicity Huffman, who has already pleaded guilty.

According to Deadline, Lori and Mossimo are currently out on $1,000,000 bail and facing up to 20 years in prison.  In addition, the new conspiracy charge also carries a maximum 20 year sentence and major fines, if convicted.

Since Loughlin’s trouble came to light with the authorities, she has lost many of her acting gigs.  She was fired from all of her projects at the Hallmark Channel and is not expected to appear in Fuller House‘s final season.

In addition, Hallmark’s When Calls the Heart, took a brief hiatus following the revelation of Loughlin’s involvement in the scheme. The series will return with all new episodes on Sunday, May 5th, but Loughlin’s character will be edited out of the remaining episodes of the season.

So, surprised Loughlin did not plead guilty as Felicity Huffman did, or is it par for the course? Share your thoughts in the comment section below as this legal mess continues for her.
