WATCH: Jimmy Fallon and Carol Burnett In The Lost 90's Soap Opera TENSIONS!

Leave it to Jimmy Fallon to bring on comedy legend Carol Burnett to The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon and have her part of a hilarious spoof on the soaps!

The set-up has Fallon and Burnett discussing the time they played husband and wife in the lost 90’s soap opera entitled Tensions! And apparently Tensions only got past its third episode before it was canceled, because everything was “too tense” for the viewers to handle.  The opening credits are even complete with an hourglass!

Inevitably, Fallon tosses to the clips of Tensions – which is actually being done live –  as Fallon and Burnett run from the host set to another and don their costumes and perform the “tense” scenes, which are complete with soap signatures; long soap tags at the end of scenes, the slap, and throwing coffee in another character’s face!  The best part of Tensions is that Jimmy and Carol were clearly having a blast doing it!

So after the jump enjoy Tensions, and then weigh-in if you got a giggle out of it!

That was a riot! Carol Burnett is the master of spoofs. (Fallon wasn’t too shabby either!) Thanks, Michael for sharing.

“That’s how time works, Petra.” Classic. Love Carol Burnett. And love how the spoof opening credits reminded me of the dopey “One Life to Live” credits that featured stuff like champagne pouring instead of the cast. Makes me want to go watch “The Carol Burnett Show.” Jimmy shouldn’t feel bad about cracking up; Carol has reduced greats such as Harvey Korman and Tim Conway to laughter too!

The soapy Filthy Rich has been short-lived.  News tonight has that the series featuring Sex and the City favorite, Kim Cattrall and former Guiding Light star, Aubrey Dollar (Ex-Marina) has been canceled by Fox in its first season.

Emme Rylan Addresses Reports Of Her Exit From General Hospital & Update On Plans With Family

Several hours ago, Emme Rylan (Lulu) of General Hospital took to her Instagram story to talk directly to her followers, friends and fans about her rumored exit on the ABC daytime drama series, and to share some changes in where she and her family will be living.

At that time, Emme updated everyone that since the landlord sold the house she has been living in with partner Don Money and their three children, that they had not found a suitable home for them to live, in Los Angeles, after their extensive search.  So for now they were going to put their things in storage and go on an extended road trip with the entire family in tow … in a car… under Covid-19 safety protocols with her kids still distance-learning, and that she would be documenting the trip on her Instagram account,

After she shared her original update, she later went back to her Instagram story to clarify her earlier statements after many fans were following up with her asking her even more questions.

 

Rylan shared:  “I am getting a lot of questions that I cannot answer …  people are kind of being confused that maybe I chose to take a vacation or take time-off,  so the only thing I can say is “no, I did not choose this.”  I can’t say anything else.  There you go.   That’s all I am allowed to say.   So, this trip is us taking an unexpected turn of events and turning it into something positive and fun for our family. ”

Earlier on her IG story, Emme addressed the reports of her exit from Port Charles explaining: “I am not in a position to be able to comment on the work stuff, so in terms of General Hospital, I am going to keep that topic quiet. All you need to know is that I love everyone there, we all love each other, I’m okay, and all of your messages of love are amazing … I love you guys so much — but I just can’t talk about it. ”

Then as to her plans with her family she shared: “We, meaning my family and I, have decided to do something completely insane. I have never done anything like this in my entire adult life. We are currently packing up our entire house and putting it in a pod and putting it in storage here in Los Angeles, and with only our suitcases, we are going to go on a Covid-safe, epic road trip.  I have been working every single day, Monday through Friday on a soap opera since 2004?  I have only been in New York and L.A, and I have never really explored life outside of this bubble.”

So, what do you think about what Emme shared with her fans and followers? Comment below.
