Do they specify which stories are award caliber? Other than a few of the Adam/Victor confrontations, I’m hard pressed to find a great writing achievement this past year. The Theo fiasco was/is laughable, Chelsea’s return was overused, Mia & Arturo are already history, and the promising returns of Fen, Kevin, and Chloe seem back-burnered. Am I missing something?

It’s so funny you say that, Damien, because in the past few months, I’ve been nodding off regularly! Usually when Tessa, Theo, this new, dull-as-dishwater Chance, or the latest installment of the Chelsea Show featuring Conner the Unhinged is on. Where are Jill, Nina, the Baldwin/Fisher clan including Gloria and hottie Fenmore, Paul…anything but the Lola/Kyle/Theo triangle. So I don’t know what great writing they’re referring to here either.

Writing for Kyle Abbott as he poured out his heart to Lola, her brother. His father, his aunts was moving and emotionally authentic. It was moving fans to believe and trust his integrity. Time will tell if this offering will be respectfully treated or casually trashed.

Moonbeam2, yes, Michael Mealor is a wonderful actor and a perfect Kyle. To me, Jack has been very insensitive to his son on behalf of this interloper with weird hair and no substance. As you can see, I’m not a Theo fan!

I agree with you Soaphound. I am so sick of listening to Chelsea whining to anyone who will listen. And you know it is just a matter of time and Lola and Theo (the man who gives me the creeps and makes my skin crawl) start rolling around in bed together. God I hope not. It would be nice to see Esther fussing over a pregnant Chole. They should the Fenmores in one episode for 5 minutes last week at Society. Ten was telling his parents he was moving to Nashville and renting a house with sober friends. So much… Read more »

I’m with you on “BillyBoy”, soapqueenforever. At first, I didn’t know if he was channeling Humphrey Bogart in THE CAINE MUTINY (with chewing gum substituting for marbles) or Sally Field in SYBIL. Why put him and Vic back together for such a short duration? At least Nikki and Victor make it work for a year or two!

There is absolutely no comparison in writing. Y and R wins by doing what it always has. It offers a layered, nuanced, subtle writing style. It’s not all plot velocity all the time. There are no back from the dead serums. No memories on flash drives. People forget……Y and R was often mind-numbingly boring when Bill Bell wrote it. Nothing would happen for months! Stories would start, and were abruptly dropped. I like watching a show that isn’t all guns and violence and explosions and evil psychos running around town. Y and R is far from perfect, but even on… Read more »

Lori Loughlin Returns To Acting; Set To Reprise ‘When Calls The Heart’ Role in GAC Family’s ‘When Hope Calls’

Former Fuller House, Edge of Night, and When Calls the Heart star, Lori Loughlin, has landed her first acting role since jail time and her part in the College Admissions Scandal; where she and her husband, Mossimo Giannulli, paid half a million dollars in bribes to get their two daughters, Olivia Jade and Isabella Rose, accepted into the University of Southern California.

While, Jade is now also in this season’s Dancing with the Stars, now comes word that Loughlin has gotten her first acting gig since all the legal trouble, and while still on probation following her two months in jail.

Look for Lori to reprise her beloved role of Abigail from When Calls the Heart on its season two spin-off on GAC Family, When Hope Calls.

According to Deadline: Loughlin will appear in the two-part Season 2 premiere titled When Hope Calls: A Country Christmas, to air on Saturday, December, 18th.  Lori was last seen on TV as Abigail in Season 6 of Hallmark’s When Calls the Heart before she was let go over her involvement in the college admissions scandal.

Last week, speculation began that Loughlin may be back working after a report surfaced from Mercury News  that she had been granted permission by a Boston federal judge to travel to Canada for about a week in late September-early October for “a filming production project.”

So, what do you think about Lori’s return to acting following serving jail time? Will you be watching her as Abigail on When Hope Calls: A Country Christmas? Comment below.
