With my looks i would had been better cast as some weird unknown creature on Dark Shadows-lol

Cool. Can’t wait

This doesn’t give me enough time to. Kinda short notice.

Well, Victor looks like my dad, so I might have a shot at “another, long-lost” son. I’ll have to look on a map to find where Arcola, IL is! You think this event would take place in the REAL Genoa City, Wisconsin!

I would try for Y&R..
hmm ok..
I’d jump on Eric/Victors lap. pull his ears and give him big smooch and call him daddy ahaaaa
luvin to get his reaction..
0ooh and you would not want to see what I’d do to Sam, it wouldn’t be perty LOL .. RIP.
And!
I’d request a hot sexy on the bed with a naked Jason T/Billy and Patrick/Valentin sex scene HEH!
(go big or go home!)

OK- I’d like to have lunch and convo with everyone so they could tell me their deepest secrets, and perhaps pass a joint..

And– I would wave to y’all from the screen while wearing a big smile..

Please send me to Y&R, thank you !

oooops- not to confuse anyone I should have mentioned;
Patrick/Valentin as a crossover..

Y and r watched from day one the pas 2 years awful can’t even watch Michael was best Adam he is important character on show they got Justin now he is doing other stuff no storyline but boring jail story. Writers are awful.

WOW!!! This is an amazing marketing plan! I would do almost anything to be part of an episode of Y & R! I started watching this soap when I was a little girl living with my grandmother. We never missed an episode. I watched through my teenage years and remember running home so I would not miss it! As a wife, mother, and working woman I joined a coffee club in order to watch, keep up with, and to discuss the program weekly. Oh my goodness! I guess you could say I have become addicted! Now, semi-retired the Y & R is still part of my daily ritual. Today, with the modern invention of taping my shows, I thoroughly enjoy them in my time. The most amazing thing is that my husband, once irritated by soaps, is now a loyal fan and together we enjoy Y & R. FANTASTIC story lines, great actors/actresses, and bravo to using some very important life lessons (alcoholism, drugs, sexuality, and disabilities (Hope being blind.) I would love to see more life issues being brought forward. The sex and romance is great but you get tired of it after a while. Some marriages do work! We celebrated 45 years in July! Today, modern day to day life stories, should be brought to light and portrayed.
“Yes”, I would love to be at a casting call but they are all out of my available destination. Good marketing! Get more creative with life issues! Only if I could talk to the writing team! WOW!!!

Guiding Light

Kim Zimmer Reveals Breast Cancer Diagnosis

Last night the stars of daytime came together for a one-of-a-kind three hour-plus virtual event Daytime Stands Up – A Benefit For Stand Up To Cancer – We All Have a Story.

Towards the top of the show Daytime Stands Up co-hosts Michael Fairman and Alan Locher welcomed former Guiding Light stars, Kim Zimmer (ex-Reva) and Tina Sloan (ex-Lillian).

During their segment both actresses initially discussed playing breast cancer storylines for their character on the beloved soap opera and the impact it made on them and the viewers at the time. However, later in the conversation, Kim made a heartfelt admission that she is currently battling breast cancer in real life.

 

Kim expressed, “I was diagnosed with breast cancer on November 6th. And if it wasn’t for a wonderful circle of friends that I have, and not to mention my husband AC Weary, and my family Rachel Max and Jake, who call me every day, I would’ve fallen apart. But because of my circle that I had, including fabulous doctors, early detection (was possible).

“I did have a mastectomy and I have my last infusion on Tuesday,” Zimmer added. “I would say to anyone that may get a diagnosis like I got. It’s so important that you find a support system.”

On how she is coping with her battle, Kim shared, “I’m a tough broad. But again, if I didn’t have the friends that I have, the support system that I have, the fabulous doctors, a fantastic plastic surgeon, I would’ve fallen apart. And I’m here to say early detection. Early detection. Early detection. Get your mammograms, get them soon.”

Earlier in the segment, when Kim talked about Reva’s breast cancer battle and how her character would not tell the love her life, Josh Lewis (Robert Newman), which maddened fans of the GL. Kim related, “The fans were like, ‘Why are you not telling Josh?” It made for great drama, though, It bonded Billy and Reva again in life.  We brought in the wonderful character of Colin, who was Reva’s by the book, cancer Doctor.”

“There were a lot of wonderful things that came out of the storyline,” recalled the four-time Daytime Emmy-winner. “I actually went back and watched the (standalone show) that they did on Reva finding out she had breast cancer. And I was like, ‘Wow. I can’t imagine not fighting that story today. But it ended up being written beautifully.”

Share your well-wishes to Kim on her recent medical battle with breast cancer below and check out the livestream below of Daytime Stands Up – A Benefit for Stand Up to Cancer.

The Young and the Restless Eileen Davidson to Chat Live on Ashley’s Alters Storyline

Fans of CBS daytime’s The Young and the Restless have been watching Ashley Abbott’s (Eileen Davidson) psyche split into multiple personalities. The trouble all started months ago over an argument with Tucker (Trevor St. John) and a flashback to a tragic car accident years ago.

Now Ashley is not herself.  She at times is either Ash, Ms. Abbott or the flamboyant Belle. Although her friend and psychiatrist from Paris, Alan Laurent (Christopher Cousins) has come to Genoa City at the urging of the Abbott family, he has been taking his time assessing Ashley and her behavior.

Looks like Ashley’s alter may be hell-bent on murdering Tucker during her mental anguish as the storyline takes even more twists and turns in upcoming episodes ahead.
