Hi Greg! First off, I can’t tell you what a delight it is to have Leo back on screen! You must be having an absolute blast (you can tell onscreen) being back at Days. I mean…how much fun did you have taping that wedding?! The suit and hair were on point! And the scenes with Sheila (T-boz) officiating had fans ROTFL ! So tell us what is next for Leo? Will he continue to torment Sonny/Will?? Also, will there be more scenes with Leo and Sheila bc those 2 together are a comedy act! Also, Judith Chapman is returning as Leo’s mother…what can you tell us about that??

Please tell Greg Rikkart he is doing AMAZING work at Days of Our Lives please!

I tried calling just now but my connection was bad, I was hoping to speak to Greg Rikkart or leave him a comment.

Please tell Greg Rikkart that he is knocking it out of the ballpark! Ron C. writes the best lines for Leo and Greg gives Leo life! Is Greg going to have more questions with Sheila?

And I love hearing Robin Strasser. I miss her, Dorian and OLTL. it was cancelled when it shouldn’t have been, OLTL was on fire and their ratings were much better than GH was!

Absolutely right, Blake. Hard to believe Y&R let the versatile, sexy Greg Rikaart go so they could hire a bunch of zeros like Mia, Kerry, Nate, Rey, etc. Tells you a lot about why Y&R is unwatchable these days while DAYS has a glut of great (and great-looking) actors.

Ellen Pompeo Rips Into ‘The Bachelor’ Creator And Defends Kelly Ripa For Her Comments

Things just got juicy from daytime to primetime after Kelly Ripa let her thoughts be known about the current ‘Bachelorette’ Hannah Brown and the ‘Bachelor’ franchise during her morning show with Ryan Seacrest this week,

During a moment on the syndicated Live with Kelly and Ryan on Tuesday, Seacrest informed Ripa that the new ‘Bachelorette’ would be appearing on Thursday’s episode to which Ripa said: “You know how I feel about this show? It disgusts me. And I thought that I was disgusted because I couldn’t stand the idea of 25 exceptional women fighting over one ordinary fella, in my opinion. You know how we feel ladies! We are too special to be arguing over a guy.”  She also called the audience out for watching this “gross, gross, show.”

Following her sentiments, The Bachelor creator Mike Fleiss took to his Twitter account as did host and EP, Chris Harrison.  Fleiss said, “Easy, Kelly Ripa.  The Bachelor franchise pays for your salary.”  While Harrison tweeted: “Look out @KellyRipa⁩ is coming after you and your ‘disgusting’ Monday night habit.”

Next, none other than Grey’s Anatomy franchise star, Ellen Pompeo joined the fray.  She tweeted in defense of Ripa.  Pompeo wrote: “Okay @fleissmeister… that’s some handle bro! Your show does NOT pay @KellyRipa salary. Also we don’t attack successful women on our network and men certainly cannot take credit for their success. Don’t get me started on your show cuz I’m a savage….

And in the end on Thursday’s installment of the entertainment talk show, Hannah Brown made her guest appearance and she weighed-in on the situation expressing that she didn’t follow the franchise at first, but being on the show has changed her mind. Ripa maintained her disgust for the series.

Brown went on to say to Ripa: “Like you, I didn’t really follow the show, wasn’t a big fan, but being part of the show, it’s not women fighting against each other.  Some of my best friends came from the show and were really supportive.”

So what do you think about what Ripa, Pompeo, Brown, Harrison and Fleiss had to share with each other on their Twitter war? Comment below.
