This Week’s BEACON HILL: Sarah Brown and Alicia Minshew Deliver Bravura Performances!

This past Wednesday, Beacon Hill released their 8th installment in an episode entitled, “Regret” which featured a knockout script which resonates to anyone who has ever been in a relationship only to have someone walk out on the other and have their heart and their trust broken.  And then, how do you deal with that when you see them again after many years?  Old feelings are dredged up: the hurt, anger, the regret, the love, it’s all there and underneath the surface.

With a fantastic script from Beacon Hill creators Linda and Jessica Hill along with Skip Shea, the latest episode finally brought Sarah Brown and Alicia Minshew together in a room as Katherine and Sara to have that long awaited conversation that was six years in the making in the back-story of Beacon Hill.

Sarah Brown is one of the finest actresses, period. When she is on screen she commands your attention and her choices are interesting and raw, and she captivates you.   And in “Regret” she truly delivered … the pain, the anger, the trying to make sense of it all at how this woman she loved walked out on her …. and now questioning …. what does she want?  Brown was phenomenal with playing all the complex emotions that were so relatable to anyone who has been in a similar situation or has even gone through a tad of the heartbreak of someone walking out on your relationship without saying even goodbye!

Alicia Minshew showed strength, vulnerability, and depth as well.  It was so nice to see her get a chance to show her chops in major scenes of substance once again, something she did time after time as Kendall Hart Slater on All My Children.  But Katherine is no Kendall.  And while Sara was the one who walked out on Katherine all those years ago, Minshew showed her hurt and regret for the pain she caused her former lady love, but still has that major issue with the thought of her grandfather (Ron Raines) manipulating Katherine for political gain and more!

The question becomes, how will these two former women-in-love, who clearly still have feelings for each other make it back to one another?  Or, will they?  If you have not got tuned into Beacon Hill yet, get on board now as there are only four episodes left of season one by subscribing via logging on to their website here!

If you saw this week’s Beacon Hill, what did you think of Sarah and Alicia’s performances and the script?  Let us know!

Thanks for the recognition for this episode Michael. Sarah was amazing the last episode. I felt every emotion she conveyed. And Alicia was fantastic as well, I felt sympathy for her even though she was the one who left. Their chemistry is fanastic. Really, really enjoying this series.

They were friggin phenomenal. Sarah and Alicia hit every emotion perfectly. These two ladies together are making Beacon Hill one of the great soaps…

I liked the episode and like the show in general. I have to say that I found it a little disingenuous for a grown women to keep whining about her grandfathers control over her ex. Once-believable, Twice – if you have to. But over and over again?

I love it. The script is great, the acting superb, and the production is slick and professional. Each new project Crystal Chappell takes on (with the team she assembles) just keeps getting better. Keep up the great work, everyone!

Well said. Crystal is extraordinary. I’m so glad I started watching her Otalia storyline on GL, which led to Venice, then The Grove, and now Beacon Hill. Way to go, Crystal. Much gratitude from this fan!

Kelly Ripa’s First Book On the Way in 2022

Former All My Children star, now co-host of Live with Kelly and Ryan and a successful executive producer in her own right, Kelly Ripa, will add writer to her list of credits.

New this week is that Ripa is sharing a look at her real-life in a book, that will be released next spring in April of 2022.

According to the intel, the book entitled Live Wire will feature sharp, funny, and honest collection of real-life stories from Ripa, showing the many dimensions and crackling wit of the beloved daytime talk show host.

As soap fans know, Ripa has been married to Mark Consuelos (Ex-Mateo, AMC) and the two share three children together.

The loglines for the release share: “In Live Wire, Kelly shows what really makes her tick. As a professional, as a wife, as a daughter and as a mother, she brings a hard-earned wisdom and an eye for the absurdity of life to every minute of every day. It is her relatability in all of these roles that has earned her fans worldwide and millions of followers on social media. Whether recounting how she and Mark really met, the level of chauvinism she experienced on set, how Jersey Pride follows her wherever she goes, and many, many moments of utter mortification (whence she proves that you cannot, in fact, die of embarrassment) Kelly always tells it like it is. Ms. Ripa takes no prisoners.
Surprising, at times savage, a little shameless and always with humor… Live Wire shows Kelly as she really is offscreen—a very wise woman who has something to say.”

So intrigued to read Kelly’s book when it is released next year? Comment below.

Imagine being in the hot seat and having some of your soap opera favorites trying to stump you with trivia, while trying to best your competition.  Well, that’s what four contestants faced as they battled it out in the ultimate soap trivia game, Soap Opera Know-It-All.

Later in the episode, there is a very special appearance by Eileen Davidson (Y&R, Ex-Days, Santa Barbara and B&B).  It is Eileen who reveals and asks the final question of the game to determine the eventual winner.

For this edition, host Michael Fairman welcomed longtime soap fans: Michael Cochran, Sean McKinley, and Robert Davis along with returning champion, David Bursky for this soap deep-dive competition.
