Last night Twitter was abuzz as a many a soap fan gathered around the television set to watch ABC’s Celebrity Wife Swap, the soap edition!  In it, two couples were featured and as is the premise of the show, the guys have to switch wives for one week, where for part of the week the woman lives by the gents rules , and the tables are turned for the latter part of the week.  In the end, the couples come together to discuss their experience with one another.

General Hospital’s Tyler Christopher (Nikolas) and wife Brienne Pedrigo, and their four-year-old son Greysun were one of the featured families. And what was shown was that:  Tyler has a very definitive calorie counting regimen and is the chef of the house. He loves his son Greysun more than anything, and he and Brienne love the beach, being outdoors exercising, and are not prone to huge public displays of affection.

As counter point to them, the former star of The Bold and the Beautiful Ronn Moss (Ex-Ridge) and his wife Devin Devasquez were the other couple in the wife swap.  Moss was shown to have very overt romantic gestures to his wife, drinks wine, loves to be his “man cave”- the garage rehearsing with his band Player, but does not dig the outdoors so much, and neither did his wife, Devin.

But as for Devin, she was shown to really gravitate towards Tyler’s son and wanted to teach him some table manners and new foods during the wife swap. Devin, who works on social media for herself and Ronn, tried to get Tyler Christopher to do a little video on the beach to help engage his fans and for him to open up a bit.  For Brienne , she tried to get Ronn to get outside and go for a ride with her on tandem bicycle, and she did so by first taping off his garage so he would not go near it.  That did not go so well!

Two different couples with two different perspectives!  After watching the episode, who surprised you the most and why? Tyler, Brienne, Ronn or Devin?  Let us know!

Tyler Christopher weighing his food all the time is odd, do not know many that do this unless they are training for a competition…Ronn Moss being naked does not surprize me at all!!

OK here goes. For a reality show.I liked it. I liked all four of the couples. They all came out looking fine. The Christopher’s son is adorable. No one came out looking like an ass ,as others have done on other shows.It was nice seeing Tyler is not a prince, He is on TV so counting calories is perfectially acceptable. Ron Was very loving to his wife, and they all pretty much followed the rules. No one looked to be angry all the time. I enjoyed it !

Agree with everything you said. It was odd for one of these shows because there’s usually so many fights and squabbles.

Ronn Moss! Strange to say the least lol He was too touchy feely with Brienne. What he does with his own wife is his own business, but touching and treating Brienne the way he did was just creepy. He and Devin were both a tad condescending to both Tyler and Brienne. I did like the way Devin was with Greysun though.

I was most surprised by Tyler Christopher. For some reason I thought in real life he’d smile and laugh a little more easily. Ron Moss was as creepy as I thought he’d be, although I liked that he didn’t seem to mind that his wife isn’t stick thin. All in all, I thoroughly enjoyed the show. And yes, Grayson is absolutely adorable.

It’s “Greysun”, he’s part Native American.

My biggest shock was Ronn Moss’ house! How can he afford that “manor”? LOL.

I found both Ronn and Tyler a bit strange. Ronn was a tad inappropriate in certain aspects with Brienne. Tyler was a little weird with the calorie counting. I can understand it with him, he’s on television, especially soaps where your appearance is key, I can understand his strict diet- but for his wife and kid? If my husband was counting MY calories, I’d slap him silly.

Ronn Moss came across creepy to me. Tyler is a little bossy but nothing over the top. Enjoyed the show.

I think Ronn is too selfish to be any kind of a real dad. He is the teenager in his house and he’s happy!
Tyler has to watch his weight, it’s part of his gig. Yes, lighten up.
These shows are so edited to have juice.
Producers did a good job finding counter lifestyles.
It was entertaining.. . the beach seemed way more fun than the over sized, over styled, staged house!

I assumed that alot of the “fights” between the swapped couples was exaggerated or staged and I didn’t take that part of the show too seriously. I was very interested to see how Tyler lives, and Ronn Moss, and I’m sure we did get more than a peek into the relationships of the actual couples and their lives. The part that seemed the most sincere was Devin’s feelings for Tyler’s son. I thought that was real and touching. Plus, it was good to see Ronn again.

As I previously mentioned on the post before this one, Devin surprised me the most in that she came across as much more together and grounded than I expected. She really keeps things moving at “Chez Moss,” and her forte’ in the kitchen was certainly impressive….not the stereotypical Hollywood wife who cannot even boil water! I also admired her true partnership with Ronn…they seem to have an amazing and affectionate bond. Their playful nature was really sweet…just goes to show that 40+romances needn’t be staid or boring! As for Ronn….quite the saucy one, isn’t he???? Somehow I just knew that his reveal about his “song performance” was forthcoming….like he couldn’t wait until the end of the show to share that little tidbit with the Christophers…and all of America!!!! LOL. That being said, I found it all to be in good fun, although if I had my druthers, I would much rather visit the Moss residence, as I am also not a sun and beach person!!!!

I just saw some clips of what went on & I went away very sad! I think my problem with Ronn’s wife is she just can’t put a sock in it and Mr. Moss needs to keep his shirt on for the camera and in the day he was a stud. Old father time has not been kind.

LOL, k/kay, and you say I’m the one whose sarcasm knows no bounds!!!! Yes, Devin can come off as a bit, um, too enthusiastic, but I think her heart is in the right place….I honestly expected her to be much more off the wall, so I was pleasantly surprised she was actually pretty subdued in comparison to my preconceived notions . As for Ronn, I just wanted to see what must be his massive collection of scarves….the fact we didn’t get a tour of his walk-in was a disappointment to me. I also liked that he was into dressing (and covering up) for dinner….sounds like Rod Stewart, albeit on a somewhat less grander scale!

@k/kay….Although I didn’t follow Ronn’s career that much after I quit watching B&B—post-Thorne2 and pre-Thorne3—I do recall the brouhaha that followed his departure from that soap due to his wife’s social media postings and also that there were some rumblings then about prior unflattering personal comments she had made in the past regarding the ex-wife…..not privy to the specifics, but overall, probably NOT a good idea! That is, in fact, why I expected Devin to come off as sort of loopy, pushy, and maybe really high-maintenance and self-absorbed?…I certainly would not have pegged her as being so nurturing, devoted, capable and domesticated. Perhaps those positive qualities also caused her to be a tad too passionate when it came to sharing, opining and defending her husband in the public domain? Hard to say, but overall, I was left with a favorable impression of her after viewing the show, and that was not something I thought I would! Hence, I give her the benefit of the doubt!

I just finished watching the show OnDemand.

Hhahaha Shay! Even on this we disagree! Ron and his wife have a true partnership? The way he struts around and has her feeding his bandmates, cooking for their guests, getting drinks for the band, telling her how to dress…(I assume he does all these things…or as much as we’re led to believe from these “reality” shows…by the way he treated Tyler’s wife.) Her nude pics on the wall? Yes, I’m sure she loves showing them off…but I found their relationship simultaneously very loving, sexual…yet like Ron loves his playboy bunny who would do the world for him.

As for Tyler and Brienne…they came across as much more down-to-earth…though Tyler really seemed reserved, controlling and regimented. Didn’t see much personality there. He claims he’s not like Nicolas, yet his “aunt Alexis” is always telling him to be less proper and cut loose a bit more…I see a similarity though on a different financial scale with less entitlement.

Overall the show for me was like a peepshow…LOL…just peeping in to see what their homes/wives look like. It was an interesting look…I didn’t find any of them offensive or unlikeable….

Ron has a cute, smirky sarcasm about him. His wife, even with her “wifey” role seems sharp/bright.

Tyler is one handsome dude; his wife seems very girl-next-doorish and earthy. Spencer…ahem…I mean Greysun…was beyond adorable…

@rebecca1….Well, I know I am going to raise the feminists’ hackles, but here goes anyway! I have no problem with Devin and what you seem to view as her role of subservience…..Ronn’s dual music/soap career has obviously handsomely provided for a fine lifestyle for the both of them to enjoy, and I view her contributions as no less important than his….she supports his social media efforts to keep his loyal fans in the loop, furnishes a gracious home with obvious love, business-like management and tasty home-cooked meals that she takes pride in preparing and seems very happy and fulfilled in that capacity….who are we to judge???? That is what some of us would say constitutes a most successful marriage, and yes, a partnership as each person brings their own strengths to that union!!! This couple seems to thrive on marching to the beat of their own drummer in the privacy of their palatial love lair, and at the beginning and end of the day they are there for each other…..certainly worse things a woman can face in this world!!!! As for Devin’s “Playboy” past, that was a path she chose for herself decades ago, and she is content with her image as a former “Bunny,”…..it is part of her personal history….so what??? It’s not as if Ronn found some indecently young girl to exploit and promote in that respect for his own ego gratification….these two came into each others’ lives as grown adults and have created what by all indications is a very cool, charming and devoted relationship…..it’s a lovely thing to behold. Quite frankly, I found Brienne as being much more “under the thumb” of her man than Devin. Although I totally respect Tyler’s commitment to healthy living for himself and his family, he is extremely controlling in both the dietary and living departments….it were as if his wife didn’t quite know what to do once she was cut loose from his apron strings for that week….the “deer in the headlights” look was a dead-giveaway to me! That’s not to say that I didn’t like her, but whereas Devin bloomed and flourished in her independence—especially with Graysun—Brienne shrank in hers….although some people found Ronn’s attempts to be “friendly” too familiar and off-putting, I think he was just trying to loosen her up a bit with his perhaps overly-flirtatious nature. I didn’t find anything untoward about it….I actually laughed, as we all know guys who are like that! He didn’t cross the line….she just was really taken aback and didn’t appear to know how to respond, which rather puzzled me….surely living in L.A. she must know how to schmooze and mingle with entertainment types, even if her wifely and motherly duties keep her at home for the most part. I also think that the differences between the two couples may be down to age….there is a generational gap and thus, their concepts and experiences as to what constitutes a suitable home life would be vastly different. The one unifying thing I noticed about both couples was that they seemed to have found the right match for themselves, and that was a really nice thing to see….there were no major drama queens or trainwrecks that are seemingly de rigueur for reality programming. Overall, this was a fun and interesting show to experience!!!!! (Even though it won’t turn me into a regular viewer….)

@ Shay I have no problem with Devin and her love for Ronn just sometimes she came off as too much. She did a social media blog a few years ago about Ronn’s ex and said some things that we did not need to know and his daughters did not need to read that. I did think it was funny that she said she did not know how to deal with children when she has helped Ronn raise his daughters. I am sure that was scripted. The best part for me was trying to pick which lifestyle I liked best I decided BOTH! Lol!!!

I agree; there’s nothing wrong with her having been in Playboy. I just said it’s an “interesting” form of art to have hanging all over the walls and for some reason I felt like I was watching Hef with one of his ladies… And I also don’t think there’s anything wrong in Devin handling the PR for Ron…she seems quite capable as well as personable. But Ron came off to me as a bit sexist…though she doesn’t seem like anyone’s pushover…When Brienne had to go in and serve the “boys” drinks…and go shopping for what they wanted…it was a tad too much for me. I’d be like…”get it yourself…” UNLESS I was already on my way out to do some shopping. (if they do everything together they should have had that stuff stocked in the house.) Overall, if I can believe it wasn’t all put on for the show, I agree that it works for them. They seem happy and in love.

As for Tyler’s wife…she’s no deer in the headlights. She’s a e pit reporter for ESPN on NASCAR…I just think it was a look of disbelief when he asked her to go shopping, wear her hair down and refused to ride the freaking bike! LOL.

Cute couples all around.

“Hef with one of his ladies…” LOL, rebecca1! Yeah, I suppose that “server role” rubbed a lot of women the wrong way!!! But I wasn’t one of them…..those boys in the band are like family, so Devin was just being a gracious hostess….it’s her thing, and being Southern, I don’t think she finds it to be demeaning at all. But I have friends like you who would definitely see that task as uncool….I’m just one of those rare birds that doesn’t view things through that much of a feminist prism….a lot of issues that really ruffle others feathers don’t phase me, yet I’m definitely no pushover either!!!!! (As for the grocery shopping, a lot of women prefer to do it themselves….they get exactly what they want/need and not a lot of the junk they don’t if their man hits the market instead!!!!) But I can take your point….still, I remain less impressed with Brienne. Probably because she is just a bit too low-maintenance, outdoorsy and chill for my taste, but I applaud her efforts. However, I remain with Ronn on the bike riding the second time around, and I also agree that women look better with their hair down and dressed up, so I didn’t find his request unreasonable….go ahead, call me a traitor to the so-called “sisterhood”…..it certainly wouldn’t be the first time I’ve heard that!!!! ; )

Not sure if it’s okay to post links here…Shay (etc) if interested…this LOL contradicts quite a bit about the Moss stay-inside household…seems he likes biking too (maybe not a bicycle built for two but still…) and is a tad more outdoorsy and exercise conscious than portrayed. Seems like it was necessary to build the contrast of the two couples. Or…they could have emphasized differences that they REALLY DID HAVE!

Woman’s Day March 30, 2009. Google it.

Actually, my favorite was Brienne. What a delight! down to earth and charming, not to mention a GREAT sport! I’ve always been a Tyler Christopher fan, but she is a real asset to him.

Ron and his wife live a pretentious life and Tyler and his wife live a normal life. I wish that Tyler would smile, laugh, and be less serious. He actually said that he was going to try to relax more. He needs to watch what he eats b/c of having to take his shirt off on the soap and he competes with younger guys there too.
I enjoyed the show and both wives were very, very nice and not purposely trying to hurt one another.

Back when Nikolas and Lizzy were having that vile affair while hapless un-Lucky was shopping for wedding rings, Tyler was going through his fat Elvis period.
I called him Chubby Bunny back in those days.
So, good for him for using those Weight Watcher scales and counting his points.

Ron Moss was odder to me in his home life…. unless that was just for the show.

And what is with all those scarves looped around his neck, or the bandana tied around his neck?

I think Tyler weighing his food is a little odd, but if he has a problem with his metabolism and needs to keep a certain weight for the camera, I can see why he’d be concerned.

The best part was Ron’s wife got to “have” a child for a week……. maybe they can adopt or she could go work with kids, and let Ron take care of his own social media while she’s doing something more meaningful. 🙂

I thought I was going to hate ronn moss wife and surprise I really like her, both soap stars spouses were very likable, I found the guys more odd but it’s not the end of the world, both couples were more normal then not .

Ronn Moss and his wife are so over the top. His wife is just so pathetic. She actually thinks she’s a Hollywood celeb. Not to mention how condescending – her comment about Tyler’s house was so inappropriate …she once again has made herself look like a complete ass all by herself.

Omg! I just watched my recorded episode with Ronn Moss and let me tell you, I found him creepy as hell. All that cappuccino shirtless serving was just pathetic. The way he is looking at you is creepy, even though I think is intended to be romantic. I think the dude confuses romantic with creepy. Sheesh! I do not want to see him again. I was afraid he will try to rape that lady at some point. Very very disturbing. The other dude was just too rigid. No smiles, very serious, not laid back at all. His counting calories is whatever he has his reasons. But man, Ronn Moss?! Nah!

General Hospital

GENERAL HOSPITAL: Dante is Shot as Jason Reveals Himself

Just how was General Hospital going to reintroduce the character of Jason Morgan to the canvas with the highly-anticipated return of Steve Burton in the pivotal role? Well, why we don’t have all the answers, the show wasted no time, and Burton first appeared at the beginning of the Monday, March 4th episode.

In story, while Sonny (Maurice Benard), Selena (Lydia Look) and Ava (Maura West) are at the warehouse, they are facing off with the FBI and the PCPD when John (Adam J. Harrington), Anna (Finola Hughes), Dante (Dominic Zamprogna), Chase (Josh Swickard) et al show up.  Meanwhile on the roof, a man kneels over a skylight window who pipes up with, “it appears they are late to the party.” It’s then revealed just who the man is talking to, and it turns out it’s JASON!

Meanwhile, John and Anna are questioning Sonny and Selina on what they are doing in the warehouse. Selina says they are planning a poker game. Next, the man with Jason aims his gun at Sonny. However, Jason messes up his shot, but the shot rings out. Inside the warehouse everyone scatters about. They realize the show came from the skylight.

Jason tells the other man they’ve been compromised and need to leave the location. Below, in the warehouse, Dante thinks that he and Chase can get onto the roof since the shooter didn’t see them. So, Dante takes off with Chase to find the culprit. In the meantime, John orders a CSI unit. Next, Chase returns and says the building is all clear and Dante is pursuing the suspects.

Now on the pier, Dante catches up with Jason (who’s back is to him) and the other man. Dante orders them to freeze. While the other man gets away, Jason stays put and Dante orders him to turn around slowly with his hands up. Dante is shocked to see its Jason. Confused, Dante says, “What the hell?” Next, the other man returns and fires two shots into Dante’s chest.

As Dante goes down, Jason runs over to him. The other man calls Jason “Jacobs” and tell him to leave the cop to die. Jason tells the other man to go to the planned site and he will find another way out. Next, the man attempts to fire at Jason who is hovering over Dante, but Jason shoots at him first and takes him out.

Back at the warehouse, Ava sees a bullet hole in Sonny sleeve, as John says that it confirms that Sonny is the intended target. John and Sonny stare each other down due to their dark past.  It’s clear that Sonny doesn’t trust John and vice-versa.  Anna tells Sonny she is not out to get him and doesn’t want him to die. She adds that Sonny, “Must have had an angel on his shoulder because she doesn’t see how that sniper missed from this range.”

Chase returns to the warehouse having dropped everyone off at the PCPD, but says Dante hasn’t checked in with him. Sonny looks very concerned, as Jason is looking very concerned over Dante’s body.

So, what did you think of the first episode back for Steve Burton as Jason Morgan? Will it be revealed that he has been infiltrating this organization to save Sonny? Does Jason not know his true identify? What do you think is going on?  As for Dante, will he pass out from his injuries and not identify Jason was even there on the roof with him? Comment below.

Steve Burton Confirms ‘General Hospital’ Head Writer Switch Changed Jason’s Comeback Storyline

General Hospital viewers will see today, Monday, March 4th, the beginnings of the return storyline for Steve Burton and his character of Jason Morgan.

Just how did the recent head writing regime change at GH alter the plans for story for Jason’s comeback? As had been rumored, seems plenty. Back on January 22nd, it was revealed that Chris Van Etten and Dan O’Connor had been replaced by Patrick Mulcahey and Elizabeth Korte. At that time, Burton had already signed-on to return to the daytime drama for the first time since being let go towards the end of 2021.

Speaking with Soap Opera Digest, Steve confirmed that what we will see on-air is from the new head writers and that the direction of the story changed, “So apparently there was a whole different story planned and then the head writer switch happened and then they kind of rebooted (the story arc). I know Patrick (Mulcahey, one of the new head writers) a little bit, but I really know Elizabeth Korte (who was promoted to co-head writer).”

Burton added, “There’s no one in the building that loves that show, knows the history of the character, and is invested in it 100 percent than Elizabeth. There has never been a more deserved promotion, ever. Once I know that she was (one of the head writers), I was like, ‘Oh, this is gonna be good! I cannot wait.’ And it has been exactly that. Everything has been amazing.”‘

In addition, during an Instagram live on Monday with his podcast and comedy show partner, GH star, Bradford Anderson (Spinelli), Burton also commented on the upcoming story arc which brings Jason back to Port Charles. Steve expressed, “The story is not going to disappoint. The scenes are super deep. Frank (Valentini, EP, GH)  and the new head writers took some time to really think this out.”

Burton, being a longtime veteran of the soaps, said Jason’s return is not just isolated to be about him. “Great story on daytime should involve a myriad of people across the board and where it effects everybody,” he shared. The popular fan favorite feels that this story delivers on all levels.

So, what do you think about the head writer change and how it prompted the plans for Jason’s return? Comment below.

Days Of Our Lives

Jason Cook Recalls Landing His Soap Roles as DAYS Shawn-Douglas Brady and GH’s Matt Hunter

Daytime fans remember Jason Cook when he became wildly-popular as Hope (Kristian Alfonso) and Bo’s (Peter Reckell) son, Shawn-Douglas Brady on Days of our Lives from 1999-2006. He later made a brief return in the role in 2015 for the series 50th anniversary.

After departing DAYS, Cook was offered a role on General Hospital as Dr. Matt Hunter, the younger brother to Dr. Patrick Drake (Jason Thompson) from 2008-2012. However, during his time on the soaps, and after, Cook has been focusing on his behind the scenes roles and passion as writer and a director of feature films.

Last week, the Michael Fairman Channel welcomed Jason, along with two of the stars of his latest film, Four for Fun, Brytni Sarpy (Elena, Y&R) and Jacob Young (ex-AMC, B&B, GH). During the conversation, Cook revealed his continued admiration for the soap medium and the actors who work in it, and how it came to pass that he landed his parts on Days of our Lives, and then on General Hospital.

Photo: JPI

Cook spoke on becoming the on-screen son of soap opera’s most iconic couples, Bo and Hope: “I auditioned for Fran Bascom. She was the Days of our Lives casting director at the time. I was never a great auditioner, I don’t think. She made me feel really comfortable. I remember that screen test. And then, I remember when I got the part, I was actually working at a company at a desk job. I got the call at work and I just screamed, and at the time I didn’t quit my job. But then, I got that contract when I was 19-years-old and it totally changed my life.”

Photo: JPI

But, was Jason aware how key to the show being Bo and Hope’s son would be? “Yeah, my older sister was a fan of the show. She definitely let me know that I better not mess it up, because I was gonna ruin her favorite couple,” he shared. “I remember she printed out the family tree and it looked like a physics diagram. It was so complicated. A lot of detailed work went into it. But, I was excited.”

After being a known entity with a large fan following, eventually Cook made his way to a new role on General Hospital. Jason explained, “GH was fun. That was a situation where Brian Frons (ex-ABC Daytime President) brought me over there. I just told him I didn’t want to be like or want to do Shawn. He’s like, ‘Well, what do you wanna do?’ I said, ‘How can I screw things up around here and shake things up?'”

Photo: JPI

From that conversation things began to formulate. Cook revealed, “We started talking about the TV series House. I think in soaps, there’s an assumption if you’re going on a show that everybody wants to be the hero. I was like, ‘I don’t want to (be). I want to screw everything up.’ And then, they wrote it in that Matt Hunter burns the hospital down within like six months. I was like really proud about that. The other part that I loved about that character is that Matt, and his older brother Patrick (Jason Thompson), were both neurosurgeons. And if you (an actor) resigned your contract (with the show) you go to Patrick, you see Patrick. And if you don’t resign your contract, you see my character, because my character was going to kill you every time.”

For more on the interview, make sure to check out the replay of the livestream conversation below with Jason, Brytni Sarpy and Jacob Young.  Now let us know, did you enjoy Jason as Shawn-D and Matt on GH? Do you hope someday he might return on-screen to the soaps? Let us know in the comment section.
