Tori Spelling talk show coming to the ABC Daytime line-up?

The L.A. Times today says that ABC is developing a daytime talk show starring Tori Spelling and a yet to be named male co-host.  The article was clear that the show is in the development stages only, but it does raise some red flags for soap watchers of the ABC Daytime line-up.  Could the Spelling gabfest be a replacement for one of the soaps?  What time slot would this show potentially go in?   Read some excerpts from the item below:

“If ABC is going to launch another hour-long show, it will have to get that time from its affiliates. One possibility could be late afternoon, where many ABC stations will likely have a hole to fill next fall when Oprah Winfrey departs to cable. However, getting the ABC affiliates to give an hour back to the network may prove to be a challenge. Even the ABC-owned stations may resist such a request because many are planning to replace Winfrey with another hour of local news.

Another scenario is that one of its current daytime shows is, uh, going away. We’re pretty sure “The View” is staying put, so that leaves one of the soaps as potentially heading to the exit. But don’t panic yet, soap fans, there is no guarantee that the Spelling show will get off the ground. ABC could also try to sell it to a cable network or syndicate it to local television stations. ”

Daytime is abt actors pretending to be homewreckers, not actual homewreckers hosting talk shows.

The only time Tori Spelling ever gave a decent performance in a movie is Trick, and that’s because she was portraying a bad actress! She’s so familiar w/ the material, she can just be herself.

Isn’t it bad enough that Randy Spelling polluted daytime w/ his acting on Sunset Beach? Now his homewrecking sister, who made money off of her homewrecking ways, could infiltrate daytime? Mind you, I actually liked the ripped from the headlines aspect of SuBe. I liked their zaniness and the references to popular culture, and even to other soaps. Olivia and Annie got into a verbal catfight that was a direct plagiarism from B&B. They had those Titanic/catastrophe episodes, they spoofed Jerry Springer and they had a Bill Clinton/intern affair arc. They actually had a lot of racial diversity. And I think the turkey baster storyline somehow made an imprint on popular culture. Was SuBe the first to come up w/ that? I think so. It spanned jokes and even a movie. What soap can lay claim to actually coming up w/ an original storyline that’s now copied and joked about? How great was Annie, w/ her arms outstretched like a boxer, running around a room to the tune of Rocky, when she was told abt her inheritance from Gregory? Sarah Buxton was its clear break out star, and she regularly mopped the floor with Leslie Anne Downe’s overstretched, stapled face!

Brad Bell was obviously obsessed w/ SuBe and went thru a SuBe hard on period. Adrienne Frantz, Dax Griffin, Sean Kanan, Leslie Anne Downe, Jack Wagner and Sarah Buxton were all SuBe actors he snapped up. And B&B even used SuBe’s opening musical score in 1 ep of B&B for their opening credits. What does that say abt Brad bell, that he thinks he’s on the same level as Aaron Spelling, the granddaddy of all that is unreal? Brad Bell is a hack.

OLTL is actually the new SuBe, especially since it borrows a lot from popular culture. Grey Gardens, Who wants to be a millionaire, etc. And they certainly are as loopy as SuBe. How can anyone top the craziness of the immortal “pervs on parade” line.

Anyway Tori Spelling should keep her homewrecking claws off daytime.


OMG, who gives a rat’s patootie about Tori Spelling? She is nothing more than a rich brat who had a rich mogel daddy that left her a ton of money. Why do these “offspring” automatically assume they have talent or that anybody even cares about them just because they had a famous father/mother.

I just saw my two favorite soap actors who are tremendously talented get axed from what was once my favorite soap so the show could accommodate a “less talented” duo (among others) and try to shove them down our throats when we couldn’t care less about them. These two no-talent faux “actors” (and I use the term “actors” loosly) currently have an 85% DISAPPROVAL rating among viewers, yet they were shoved to the forefront of the show and given major storylines while two extremely talented and dedicated actors in a very popular storyline were “sucker-punched in the gut” without warning and axed without notification to make room for this no-talent bimbo and her equally untalented bozo boyfriend.

Tori needs to go live off Daddy’s money and stay out of show business. She’s nothing more than a Paris Hilton, a Kardashian sister, or anyone else with no talent that comes from wealthy parents that are trying to make names for themselves in show business. Nobody cares about Tori Spelling or any of these other celebrity brats with no talent! Give us all a break and stay home and raise your kids.


How did these extremely talented actors get axed to make room for this untalented bimbo and her boyfriend who were on the show long before?…

Boy, some folks get blamed for stuff they have no control over..Wow, just wow…

Kelly Ripa Reveals How Her Son Chose NYU Due To The Consuelos Connection To Former Soap EP/ Director, Chris Goutman

Last week on an episode of Live with Kelly and Ryan, the former star of All My Children, Kelly Ripa (Ex-Hayley) told Ryan Seacrest how a chance meeting when her son, Michael was deciding where to go to college; between her, Michael, and Chris Goutman (Ex-Executive Producer As the World Turns and former director, All My Children) changed the course of Michael’s creative and academic path.

Turns out that Goutman is now working over at NYU’s Tisch School for the Arts as an assistant professor and academic director.

During their banter on the talk show, Kelly revealed that Goutman directed the screen-test that landed Mark Consuelos the role of Mateo on All My Children, and thus how Ripa met her real-live enduring lovematch.

Ripa explained that Michael was waiting for a sign as to which college to go to as he liked most of the places he saw.  Then came the sign as Ripa explained to Seacrest: “We’re walking down the hallway and I hear a voice I know say, ‘Consuelos!’ “He turns around and I see Chris Goutman, who was our director at All My Children … I worked with him for 11 years.”

Ripa says Chris then expressed to Michael: “You have to come here, because I am the reason you literally exist.”

Ripa is reportedly also working on a film for the class, as well.  Watch what Kelly shared below.
