    Seems kinda fast considering she was dating Brandon for years.

    Good luck.

    Sad that she and Brandon have moved on and parted, and that she departed so quickly. But I do wish them the best of luck.

    I’m happy for her and her new beau. They make a very attractive couple and any guy who can make it through her mother deserves an award. LOL.

    However, I’m a bit confused. When did Brandon Beemer and Nadia break up? It seemed like they were together for such a long time, and very publicly, and now, poof, she’s engaged to someone else.

        Ooh spill the details! According to Instagram, they met on February 14th. I wonder when Nadia and Brandon broke up? They were still together on Halloween of last year so it must have been sometime after that. I do wonder what Brandon thinks of her getting engaged so quickly! She still has pictures of him on her Instagram! She’s kept her relationship with Grant a little hidden (unlike him who has been super vocal about how she is ‘the love of his life’ from like day one!). Let’s not forget how Nadia dated Daniel Sadek. That dude is super shady and was involved in all sorts of questionable things (google it). I don’t know if she has the best judgement to be honest.

        She cheated on Brandon? How do you know? If she did, that’s terrible. He seemed so devoted and loving.

    I saw the writing on the wall for Brandon and Nadia during filming of that reality show they did. He was too wishy washy for her strong & fun personality!

    Congrats to Nadia and Grant! Hope Nadia’s Mom likes Grant! I became a fan of Nadia’s Mom while watching. “Dirty Soaps”. Nadia’s Mom is a hoot! But it was obvious that she loves Nadia very much and wants her to be happy. Need more Moms like Nadia’s.

    Nadia only met this guy in February and is already engaged? Ok, good luck I guess! What’s with people dating someone for like 7 years, then breaking up and getting engaged so super quick with the first person they meet? I hope it works out for her, but I give them 2 years max.

        On a different note and off the subject….did anyone listen to that otherworldly music playing in the background as Aidan and Jen were having lunch/dinner? OMG! It sounded like the music playing during a sleep therapy session my Dad plays for his patients.

Friday night was a good night for daytime!  With its first foray back on to network television since 2011, the Daytime Emmy kudofest, while for the first time held this year virtually, due to the COVID-19 pandemic, scored very well in its timeslot.

The CBS broadcast averaged 3.1 million total viewers and a 0.3 demo rating.  That is way up from the last time viewers saw the award show on TV when it was on cable network POP TV back in 2015 with just over 900,000 viewers for its initial broadcast.

According to TV Insider report: The first hour of the Emmys garnered 3.3 million viewers to top the hour by edging out a rerun on ABC”s Shark Tank, and then slipped to second place for the second hour with 2.8 million viewers.

These were strong numbers for Friday night, and hopefully CBS and the other major networks will now continue this, and serve up the Daytime Emmy Awards moving forward.


The ladies of CBS’s The Talk hosted the event; each virtually from their homes, in an event filled with at-home acceptance speeches and presenters, and clip packages. The show was produced by NATAS and Associated Television International

So, what do you think of the ratings performance of this year’s Daytime Emmys?  Comment below.

How The Virtual Daytime Emmys Came Together And Will Look and Feel

Friday night, daytime fans, soap fans, and all the hard working people in front of the camera and behind the scenes that make your favorite soap operas come to life; will be awaiting the announcement in 15 categories to see who is the recipients of this year’s 47th annual Daytime Emmys.

The show finally back on network TV and on CBS, and according to Variety the show is going to be pre-taped, but to keep the element of surprise, presenters  appearing on the Emmys were asked to tape 5 different envelope openings — and every nominee in the major categories presented will have been asked to tape an acceptance speech.

As for keeping the winners’ identities under wraps, NATAS President and CEO Adam Sharp shared: “We’ve established an internal process so that actual knowledge of the winner is kept as a need-to-know basis on a category-by-category basis.  Certainly as we get closer to final delivery of the show, on the week of the 26th, there will be those who start seeing the whole picture come together. But obviously, a big goal of that is keeping that circle small.”

Look for more clips and visuals than usual in the virtual Daytime Emmys.  According to ATI’s, Al Schwartz who is executive producing the telecast: “Since it’s pre-taped, we can really present, for the viewers’ entertainment, the best possible visuals for each nominee. There’s going to be time to breathe in this show. And also, there’s time to keep the pacing up, so that it doesn’t get monotonous.”

The ladies of The Talk serve as hosts for Daytime’s biggest night, even though everyone will be shown from their homes.  It all starts at 8 p. m. EST/7 p. m. CST and tape delayed on the west coast airing at 8 p. m. PST.

So, how do you think the first ever virtual Daytime Emmys will be? Share your thoughts via the comment section below.
