Someone cast Rowell on a daytime or primetime soap already!

Her acting in these promo clips for her book puts most acting on Daytime to shame! She’s hilarious and dramatic at the same time. Poor Christian Leblanc, he’s hilarious in his dramatic scenes, but for the wrong reasons. CLB can’t compare to Rowell.

It’s really sad that white actresses like Kim Zimmer and Robin Strasser can be so outspoken abt the state of their shows or what they’re unhappy abt, yet still be able to return to them. Strasser had a freaking hotline where she would bash OLTL repeatedly before one of her many diva quitting moments. Yet she’s always back on OLTL no matter how much she trashes them.

While Rowell, who was fighting for equality, gets no support from her costars or the soap media.

It’s funny how there’s all this support from the soap media for the kish actors and how everything is blamed on homophobia, but since it’s a race issue for Rowell, the soap media are not blaming racism or not defending her or not defending her as passionately as the kish brats were defended.

How many openly or known to be gay headwriters have worked in Daytime? Carlivati, Reilly, Marland, Mulcahey, etc. How many racial minority headwriters have worked in Daytime: 1!

Kish is written out, Nuke gets a kiss ban and Otalia doesn’t be affectionate: the whole soap media is up in arms complaining about discrimination. Rowell complains abt the unequal treatment of black actors on Y&R, no racial minority writers on Daytime, AMC’s Erica Kane’s only black male love interest gets written out, no racial minority core families on ATWT, B&B, GH: where’s the soap media screaming discrimination?

Now who could Emmy Abernathy be? It’s quite obvious. LOL!

Nathalie Kelley Says She Is Not Returning To DYNASTY For Season 2

In a surprise admission during an interview with E Online, one of the core members of CW’s Dynasty reboot, Nathalie Kelley revealed she is not filming season 2 of the primetime sudser when it resumes filming next month.

Kelley plays Blake’s (Grant Show) wife, Cristal, who ended the season one cliffhanger in a precarious predicament after being shot by Claudia Blaisdel (Brianna Brown), while the Carrington mansion went up in flames, as well.

Kelley tells E! “I won’t be returning for Season 2.”  She went on to say as of the fate of Cristal:  ” Is it a coma? Is it death? … I actually don’t know. But I know that I’m not going to Atlanta in July, that I’m staying (in Los Angeles) … I’ve got my life back.”

Dynasty returns for its all-new season beginning on Friday, October 12th.

So, disappointed to hear there will be no Nathalie on season 2 of Dynasty?  How do you think they will write Cristal out of the story:  Coma … her body found will not be found … or is she truly dead?  Share your theories in the comment section below.

ABC Officially Picks Up ‘Roseanne’ Spinoff, ‘The Conners’ With No Roseanne Barr Participation

Word on late Thursday afternoon is that ABC has now officially moved forward and gave a pick-up to the Roseanne spinoff series, The Conners.   

As viewers know, there had been speculation that the series would revolve around Sara Gilbert’s character of Darlene, but now the other concept with the entire family in the title is the direction the new series will go (although it is said to be the “working title” of the series.)

The Conners received a ten episode order and will make the fall TV schedule, and will reside on Tuesday night’s on ABC at 8PM.

Roseanne Barr’s controversial tweets led to the network’s swift decision to cancel her series.

In the new deal, Barr will have no financial or creative involvement in The Conners after reaching a settlement with series producer, Tom Werner.

The Conners will feature the rest of the Roseanne core cast including: John Goodman, Laurie Metcalf, Sara Gilbert, Lecy Goranson, and Michael Fishman.

According to Deadline:  It is unclear how exactly Barr’s character will be written off but ABC describes it as “a sudden turn of events.”  On the new show, after a sudden turn of events, the Conners are forced to face the daily struggles of life in Lanford in a way they never have before. This iconic family – Dan, Jackie, Darlene, Becky and D.J. – grapples with parenthood, dating, an unexpected pregnancy, financial pressures, aging and in-laws in working-class America. Through it all, the fights, the coupon cutting, the hand-me-downs, the breakdowns – with love, humor and perseverance, the family prevails.

In a statement ABC commented: “The Conners’ stories demonstrate that families can always find common ground through conversation, laughter and love. The spinoff will continue to portray contemporary issues that are as relevant today as they were 30 years ago.”

A major turning point to greenlight the series came when the fact that the new series does not feature Barr’s character Roseanne Conner, which rights to which she is said to maintain, paved the way for an agreement with no Barr.

So, glad to hear The Conners will continue sans Roseanne? Comment below.
