Congratulations! I don’t know how they could write it in. She’s been in a wheelchair for weeks.

Of course, a baby is good news and best wishes to all. I also can’t see how a pregnancy can be written in. The other problem is that I’m not up for yet another Adam-hater-bent-on-revenge storyline. Haven’t we done this already ad-nauseam? Chloe, Billy, Victor, Victoria, Alyssa — enough already! Let’s watch Adam match wits with Victoria fairly in business; let Victor handle the revenge on smarmy Billy Abbott. As long as I have my front-row seat!

Soaphound Agree with your thoughts on Chelsea being pregnant on the show.How many months has it been since she and Adam have been together? I was just saying the other day how he never offers her any affection, even a little pat on the arm or tiny kiss when he enters or leaves their P.H. Wouldn’t some kind of loving feeling be helpful to a person’s recovery? I guess they couldn’t do it, with Chelsea faking her illness. I know next to nothing about strokes but wondered why she has never had some kind of P.T , just a D.R… Read more »

Boy,this gal, as Chelsea is really going off the deep end. Adam would drive anyone nuts, and everyone except for good old daddy. As Victoria said, his precious son can do no wrong. This Adam thing has dragged on so long, I can not see a happy ending for any of them, no matter who he ends up with . I wish he would leave for good.

As the World Turns and Guiding Light Favorite, Lisa Brown, Passes Away at 67

(UPDATED) In just more heartbreaking news in the soap world in 2021, we have lost another beloved performer.  Lisa Brown, who was so noteworthy for her spunky and emotional turns as Guiding Light’s Nola Reardon from 1980-1985, and later as Iva Snyder on As the World Turns from 1986-1994, has died.

Brown passed away this week on November 24th at the age of 67 following a brief illness.  The news came via the As the World Turns Facebook Fan Group and Soap Opera Digest.

This comes just two months later following the death of her former on-screen love interest Michael Tylo (Ex-Quinton, Guiding Light), who passed away in late September.

Those that followed Lisa’s career know she also starred in the Broadway Musical 42nd Street, while still playing Nola each and every day on Guiding Light.

She is survived by her children: James “Buddy” Nielsen, and daughter Victoria from her first husband Tom Nielsen (Ex-Floyd, GL) in addition to her two grandchildren, Penelope Ruiz-Nielsen and Brayden Hopf, and her second husband Brian Neary.

Brown’s on-screen ATWT daughter, Martha Byrne  (Ex-Lily) simply tweeted, “My heart is broken.”

On Friday, Lisa’s son, Buddy Nielsen, posted a touching tribute to his mother, where he revealed that she passed away due to cancer.

Buddy shared: “My Mom passed away the day before Thanksgiving after a very quick battle with cancer. This all happened really fast and wasn’t expecting it. I’ve been MIA as I’ve been back and forth between LA and NJ as she has been in and out of the hospital the last couple weeks. This dream we live, we are all subject to the suffering, aging and death. It’s not to be morose but to understand that we have finite time and must take care with what we do and how we do it. To be able to be with someone at their last breath is truly beautiful. We must not fear death as without it we would never be born and experience the 10,000 joys and 10,000 sorrows. Our existence is both small and vast all at the same time. We are tiny but immense. I know she is here but no longer in her physical form, what we do in love we leave in death. My beautiful daughter and unborn son are her legacy.”

Share your condolences to Lisa’s family, and let us know of your remembrances of this wonderful actress who gave us so many memorable moments throughout her career via the comment section below. But first, watch Lisa in some of her classic scenes from ATWT and GL.
