On Friday’s episode of CBS’ The Talk, the afternoon series welcomed Y&R stars, Jess Walton (Jill), Sharon Case (Sharon) and Joshua Morrow (Nick) to discuss the soaps streak of 30 years at #1, plus what fans can expect next in the J.T. murder storyline.

Jess Walton recalled when the show first became number one, and why it did, relating:  “I remember thinking how good our show was at putting the storylines together, combining them, so that all the climaxes … the cliffhangers …  it wasn’t just one climax and one storyline, it affected every storyline.”

As to why over the years she thinks Y&R has remained at the top, Jess explained it is the fans who are paramount to the success of the show:  “You know what it is? It’s the fans. The fans, I mean, we are like your family, and you feel like our family. And that’s what soap opera is based on, the multi-generational family.”

When the ladies of The Talk asked Sharon Case if she screen-tested with Joshua Morrow over 25 years ago to land the role of Sharon, she revealed: “Joshua started working there a few months before me, so when I came along and I screen-tested, Joshua did the screen tests for all the girls trying out that day.”

Morrow added, “We had a couple of ‘Sharons’ before the real Sharon came along, and I knew right away.  I was screen-testing with these others …  and Sharon just nailed it.  I was like, ‘That’s the one.'”  In additin, the duo discuss “Shick” and Phick” fandom, and Joshua talks about working with soap icon, Eric Braeden (Victor), as his on-screen dad.

Later, Sharon dishes on “J.T.’s” murder plot: “These women are keeping a secret. They really don’t like each other, so they’ve had to trust each other a lot this last year, keeping the secret. But, there’s chinks in the armor that are coming; they’re starting to break.”

Watch two clips from the aforementioned segment featuring Walton, Case, and Morrow on The Talk below.  Then, let us know, why you think Y&R has remained number one for 30 years? If you are team #Shick or #Phick?  What you think will happen next in the J.T. murder storyline?  Share your thoughts to these questions via the comment section below.

“Y & R” is a dumpster fire under Mal Young – cannot wait until Josh Griffith’s material starts airing and Mal Young becomes a distant memory!!!

Broadway Legend Carol Channing Dies At 97; B&B Remembers Her Time On The Soap

The beloved and iconic star Carol Channing has passed away at age 97.  Best known for her performance as Dolly Levi in Hello Dolly, the Tony Award-winning actress also picked up a Golden Globe for her role in Thoroughly Modern Millie, and was nominated for an Academy Award for it as well, throughout her enduring career.

Reports on Tuesday detail that Channing died at her home in Rancho Mirage, California, of natural causes.

While Channing did so much in her illustrious career, she also appeared as herself back in 1993 on CBS’ The Bold and the Beautiful.  That’s when the Forresters staged a celebrity-filled fashion show with plenty of glitz.

In a tweet with a photo of B&B’s enduring star, John McCook (Eric Forrester) pictured with Channing, the daytime drama shared: “All of us at mourn the loss of our friend, the legendary star, . She was a true original and there will never be anyone like her. Ms. Channing appeared as herself on B&B in 1993. May she rest in peace.”

Channing’s performance as a diamond-loving showgirl, Lorelei Lee, in the Broadway musical Gentleman Prefer Blondes back in 1949 made her a star.  Marilyn Monroe would play the role in the film adaptation.

Later in her TV career, she appeared on numerous shows including: Rowan & Martin’s Laugh-In, The Love Boat, Touched by an Angel and several game shows, to name just a few.

David Canary’s Daughter Raises Question If Repeated Head Traumas From His Football Past Contributed To AMC Star’s Condition Before His Death

Chronic Traumatic Encephalopathy (CTE) is a progressive degenerative brain disease that is now widely known to be the outcome of repeated head traumas, concussions and more for many NFL athletes, Pro Wrestlers, hockey players and more   It has caused mental illness, severe behavioral changes and more in younger athletes to even old-timers, many who suffer unaware what is happening to them. Some athletes who have committed suicide have been later to have been diagnosed with CTE when their brains were donated to research.

Kate Canary, the daughter of All My Children’s beloved and late, David Canary (Adam/Stuart Chandler), is a contributing writer to the New York Daily News, and she wrote a heartfelt, and thought-provoking article, on just what happened to this icon, who died in 2015 at the age of 77  with his formal diagnosis being Alzheimer’s disease.

However, David’s earlier football past as a high school and college football player could very well been the reason why he suffered so many years before, and as Kate related here in these excerpts: “But this diagnosis came after years of suffering with Dad’s cognitive decline, and arguably decades of signs. Without exposing the most excruciating details of a disease that could extinguish the most vibrant of men, I can confess that his case was anything but typical.  We lost him in fits and starts, over and over, for roughly seven years leading up to his final breath. Begrudgingly, we learned to lie to him — ‘entering his world,’ as my brother Chris so delicately deemed it — to skirt the contradictory truths that would trigger his outbursts, which left physical scars on objects, on himself, and on others. We knew many families who had faced Alzheimer’s, yet we were the only ones uttering the comparison ‘Jekyll and Hyde.  Those closest to Dad witnessed firsthand the erratic, delusional and at times explosive episodes that characterized his particular case, which we tried attributing to an overactive imagination in a broken brain. But as more information emerges about CTE and the nature of its symptoms — the violent mood swings, the lapses in judgment, the hours-long hallucinations, the paranoid delusions — we are left with more questions than answers, more regret than relief.”

Kate goes on to state the facts that David Canary suffered at least four major concussions as a lineman in his high school and college football playing days between the ages of 16 and 22, (she also relates that those are the ones he remembered).  She also notes the multi-Daytime Emmy winning star has experienced cognitive difficulties decades before his Alzheimer’s diagnosis, and that there was no genetic lineage that the family knew of that would you would often find with Alzheimer’s patients.  She also noted that David’s volatility was unusual for a patient suffering from this disease, which leads us all back to CTE.

In the end a loving daughter asks the questions, “Did football kill my father?”  Kate was on the verge of looking into a way to donate David’s brain to science, but sadly he passed away eight weeks later in November of 2015.

The upshot is that when mothers and fathers allow their kids to play football or other-related sports at an early age were concussions are a possibly or involved, think again, you could be changing the course of their lives forever.

So, what did you think of what Kate shared about David Canary’s mental health and condition?  It would seem CTE could have been the root cause of what befell this giant of a man in the daytime soap world. Share your thoughts via the comment section below.
