Justin Hartley/ Kevin Pearson has said;
”At the end of season 3, when you go back and watch the beginning of the series, you’re going to be like, ‘Wow, it all works.’
But you never would see any of this coming. I don’t know what those writers are eating, but it’s brain food. They’re brilliant.”

WHO! Justin is going to be the ‘upfront’ during season 3
He is a Star !
best life decision he has made was to leave Y&R and fly..

I’m ready for season 3 ..

((I do not watch weekly, I let 3 episodes collect then I binge watch them like it’s a movie, then collect 3 more and onward.

Ex-Nashville and GL’s Hayden Panettiere’s Boyfriend Arrested After Allegedly Punching Her

More upsetting news involving former ABC and CMT’s Nashville star (Ex-Juliette Barnes), Hayden Panettiere.  According to various reports, the actress was punched by her boyfriend Brian Hickerson with a closed fist in an incident that occurred in Wyoming, over the Valentine’s Day weekend.  He was arrested around 2:30am on February 14th.

According to TMZ: the police report said that Hayden revealed that she and Brian were in their bedroom when he started throwing her around and punched her.  The Teton County Sheriff’s Office was notified of a disturbance at a private residence. That caller said an intoxicated male was locked out of the home because he punched his girlfriend in the face.

Pantierre’s face was red and swollen, and she also had a scrape and swelling on her left hand; which she believed came from Hickerson’s watch during the altercation.  Deputies then decided to book Hickerson for domestic battery. He was also hit with a second charge of interfering with a police officer for allegedly refusing to identify himself.

Things looked like they had taken a turn for the better before the incident, noting that the couple moved past another altercation previously from 2019.  That case was dismissed, although he has left red marks on Pantierre’s body, because they could not find a “material witness”.

NATAS Launches New Streaming Service App As Destination To Watch Daytime Emmys and More

Looks like the place to view the Daytime Emmy ceremonies continue to change, and now evolve with the times, with news on Wednesday from the National Academy of Television Arts and Sciences (NATAS).

While the annual kudofest used to be on major network television, the last several years have found the Emmys not having a broadcast outlet and having to be creative.  As fans of the daytime community know, most recently that show has been able to seen on You Tube, Twitter, and the like, via social media.

Now comes word that NATAS has launched its very own streaming service app to be the epicenter for all of its award shows.  According to Variety: “The service, which doesn’t yet have a name (but will likely include “Emmy” in its title), will be unveiled in time for the Technology & Engineering Emmy Awards in April, and the Sports Emmys in May, both of which are administered by NATAS.”

With the introduction of the new OTT app, NATAS president and CEO Adam Sharp shared that viewers will know where to go instead of  how it went down in the recent previous years.“We were making it available on PCs and mobile in a clunky way. But with the Emmys OTT app available on any platform, if you want to watch on your phone you can watch on your phone. You want to watch on your TV, you can watch on your TV. And really be accessible to the audience. Wherever they are consuming the shows, we’re on it.”

One more important note is that Sharp says to be on the lookout for more content to enhance the Emmy and award show experiences delivered from NATAS that will include: past awards ceremonies, as well as clips from the NATAS archives,.

In addition to that, looks like there will be some original short form content as well; including its first one “Behind the Emmy” that will combine backstage interviews, onstage acceptance speeches and some of the actual submitted content to really tell the story of the excellent creativity and production work that goes into winning that most coveted honor of excellence in television,” Sharp said.
