I have several. Hopefully, at least one of them will merit being asked: 1. As a long-time viewer, I was really surprised with the storyline revealing that Kay and Jill were related. The subsequent scenes where the two worked to establish a mother/daughter relationship seemed inane to me given their bitter history. Even though the writers have “undone” their biological connection, the characters do not seem to have recovered. Jill and Kay were always at their best when they were scheming against each another, a situation that logically grew from their early years on the show. The interaction between the characters since the mother/daughter storyline is odd and the writers don’t seem to really know what to do with them. While I religiously followed this duo for decades, I have not understood the dynamics between Kay and Jill for the past few years. A couple of years ago, I saw a group interview with several cast members, including you and Jess Walton. Walton remarked that she really liked the idea of the mother/daughter storyline when she learned about it. You indicated that you were not in favor of it. Now that this plot has ended and the characters have evolved, I was wondering if your thoughts about this storyline have changed? What is your impression of the current relationship between Jill and Kay? 2. For the first two decades of the show, we always saw Kay Chancellor sitting at her home and dealing with the troubles in her life. We rarely saw a Chancellor Industries executive and months (in some cases, years) would pass before the company even remotely was involved in a storyline. It was pretty clear to me that Kay’s second husband, Phillip Chancellor, built the business and that Kay was the unstable socialite wife who never showed any serious interest in the company (other than as a source of income). In the past decade, we have suddenly seen Kay take an active role in running Chancellor Industries. She appears to be an astute, experienced businesswoman, making serious financial decisions about the company. This often has puzzled me. Where exactly did Kay get all of newly found business knowledge? The show has never addressed her sudden insight and interest into the workings of Chancellor Industries when Kay spent 20 years barely mentioning it. As far as I can tell, we didn’t even get a minor storyline where Victor coached Kay on how to be a CEO of a large operation. I’ve waited for several years for a plot where Chancellor Industries is on the verge of bankruptcy due to unwise decisions by the inexperienced Kay. I was wondering if Miss Cooper had any thoughts on this? 3. Who was your favorite romantic partner for Kay? Who was your least favorite romantic partner for her? 4. What was your favorite storyline from the show and why? What was your least favorite storyline and why?

I would like to know what Jeanne has to say about the recent ousting of Maria Bell, and what she thinks about the changing of the guard at Y&R behind the scenes.

Also, does she get a say in what Mrs. Chancellor wears, or is that what the costumers decide? She is always so perfectly put together!! 🙂

One more…. how much fun was it doing that cake fight with Jess Walton a few years ago? That was awesome television….. really all of the fights she’s been in with Jess are so memorable. Was it difficult doing all of that rolling around? 🙂

Michele Lee, Donna Mills & Joan Van Ark Talk Their ‘Sister’ Act and How They’re ‘Knot’ Done Yet

Who doesn’t love to see a Knots Landing (1979-1993) reunion,  especially when the three major leading ladies from the iconic primetime soap are seen together and step out in public!

Last night, the threesome of Michele Lee (Ex-Karen), Donna Mills (Ex-Abby) and Joan Van Ark (Ex-Valene) appeared in Hollywood at the the Hollywood Bowl The Jose Iturbi Foundation dinner, which promotes classical music to mainstream audiences, and awards grants to musicians, held before its concert.

It was there that these women chatted about their enduring friendship, and of course, missing that infamous cul-de-sac!  In a feature for ABC News via AP, with the fan favorites from ‘Knots’, Van Ark commented: “The truth is that we are, in fact, sisters. And when we’re together, it’s goofy and fun. When we have our three-way conversations, which might be just the three of us, we are truly joined soul-to-soul, heart-to-heart.”   The trio revealed that they always get together for dinner.

Coming up in December is what would be the 40th anniversary of the debut of Knots Landing. When asked if there might be another reunion show, Van Ark remarked that she would hope that Valene, Abby, and Karen would have had some ‘work done’, commenting: “They’ll all have facelifts, I hope.”

And if that wasn’t funny enough, Joan chimed in that there is a back-up plan if there is no reunion: “It’s a show that were going to call  ‘We’re ‘Knot’ Done Yet.’ And we’re not. We’re not.”

With female empowerment being a huge topic of our time, Donna Mills expressed how ‘badass” the ‘Knots’ gals were for their time: “We were so strong, our characters were so strong, that it was like, ‘Don’t mess with them.'”

So, would you like to see a ‘Knots’ 40th reunion special? Comment below.

‘Bachelor’ Creator Mike Fleiss Slapped With Restraining Order After Allegedly Attacking Wife; Demanding She Have An Abortion

In what is now become sadly its own soap opera, the creator of ‘The Bachelor” franchise, Mike Fleiss and his wife, Laura are in the middle of a media frenzy this week after reports surfaced on Wednesday that Laura filed a restraining order against him following an argument and altercation allegedly over Fleiss demanding she have an abortion, as she is presently pregnant with his second child.

As more information came to light Mike had filed for divorce last week earlier after five years of marriage citing irreconcilable differences, according to court documents. It was listed their separation date was on July 7.  In addition, Mike requested joint legal and physical custody of their young son, Benjamin,

Shortly after the divorce filing, Laura who is a former Miss America from Wisconsin (Laura Kaeppeler), winning the crown in 2012, then filed an emergency domestic violence restraining order on Mike. In her claim, she says he physically attacked her and “demanded” she get an abortion. This allegedly went down over the July 4th weekend,  Court documents state that Laura is ten weeks pregnant at this time.

In addition, Laura alleges that Fleiss informed her: ‘If you have an abortion, then we can just go back to the way we were.’”  She went on to say: “Prior to July 4th, Mike threatened me that if I did not have an abortion, he would end the marriage.  This was not the first time he had threatened a divorce during our marriage, but now, he was using this threat as leverage to force me to have an abortion. In addition, on July 4th, Mike made the following statements to me: ‘I am cutting you off financially Monday morning’; ‘You are paying for everything with your money’; ‘Next time I see you, I don’t want to see your stomach’; and ‘You have a choice, you can choose. Have an abortion or go back to Wisconsin, but you are not taking Ben.’”

Fleiss defended himself in the documents obtained by The Blast: “I have not hurt, attacked, or attempted to physically harm Laura or our child, Benjamin Fleiss ‘Ben,’ in any way., Laura was the aggressor during the incident and physically attacked me. I tried to get away from her as she was chasing me and hitting me. I have security footage from our home that shows the incident, which the Court can review.”

He also added that: “After the incident, Laura was initially remorseful. I was leaving Hawaii for work commitments in Los Angeles. I spent time with Ben at the house in Hawaii prior to leaving for Los Angeles. A few days after the incident, Laura stopped all communication with me. “I don’t know where Ben is and I want custody of him because of Laura’s instability.”

On Thursday, Radar Online released text messages provided by Fleiss to the courts from his estranged wife.

Meanwhile, Warner Brothers, the company behind the “Bachelor” franchise said of the incident and the status of Fleiss with this series: We are aware of these serious allegations, and are looking into them.”

So, do you think Fleiss should be, or will be asked to step away from ‘The Bachelor’ franchise in lieu of this domestic dispute and violence issue? Comment below.

General Hospital

With Talk Of Nikolas On GH, Tyler Christopher Says: “I’ve Always Said I Would Never Close That Door From My Side”

On recent episodes of ABC’s General Hospital, a few of the key characters in the life of the “late” Nikolas Cassadine spoke about him including: his on-screen mother, Laura (Genie Francis), his ex, Hayden Barnes (Rebecca Budig), and a woman who would have been poised to be a new love interest, Ava (Maura West).

So with the name-drops and mentions in recent weeks, could the character who was shot by Valentin (James Patrick Stuart) and fell out a glass window on a balcony, be making a return soon and be very much alive?

Soap fans tweeted at the actor most known for his role as Nikolas Cassadine (in which he won a Daytime Emmy for his performance), and former Days of our Lives star, Tyler Christopher, to see what his thoughts were on what could be happening on General Hospital with the character.

Tyler made this statement to his Twitter followers: “You are all very sweet to be so loyaI as you always are. I know they are talking about Nikolas as of late. I’ve always said I would never close that door from my side. I just want to thank you all for always rooting for me and the character. I grew up with him as many of u have.”

For over 20 years, Christopher had played the role of the dark prince of the Cassadines.  When he went on leave from the series in 2016, he was replaced by Nick Stabile, who was Nikolas at the time of the character’s supposed death.

Later, Tyler debut on Days of our Lives and took on the role of the newly created character of Stefan O DiMera.  He was also nominated earlier this year for a Daytime Emmy for Lead Actor for his performance in that role.

Longtime fans of GH have also been active on social media hoping that somehow GH could find a way to bring back both Tyler, as well as his on-screen TV brother, Jonathan Jackson (Ex-Lucky) so Laura could also have her sons back on the canvas.

So, do you think GH is about to bring Nikolas back?  Share your thoughts via the comment section below.
