Maybe Lee Phillip Bell can slap her son Brad Bell up side the head and tell him to stop using all of those old scripts from the past and learn how to write something about fashions and real love without a third wheel. Let Steffy and Liam be happy. Get on the crew at Young and Restless for trying their best to destroy the show with all of the new none acting characters that Jill Phillip brought from GH. Why aged the kids so they can act like a dog in heat like Summer, Phyllis and ? seed, or Wako, like Fen, Lauren was a thief back in the day and Michael was the Devil # one man, but now Lauren is lust crazy with a Mafia nut who haven’t got enough of a brain to put in a thimble,who had the nerve to get smart with Michael, who can show him that he put the E in Evil. And Lily is no teen anger. Get real, Tyler is nothing but another cry baby, you already got two children. Victoria, grow up. You are a jealous acting child who claim to want a baby with Billy, but don’t have a problem leaving the baby you got. By the way, who was at home with you and Billy’s baby when he left the house also. Neither one of you need a child. Avery and whatshisname are getting on my nerves. Sharon will always be a loser. Chloe is so wrong giving advise about anybody baby after all the things she has done. Sharon has a big mouth. Leslie and her dad and brother need to take Fen/Summer/Avery/Whatshisname/Lily/ and all the rest of the cast wasting up air time back to the loony bin.
By the way, do Brad Bell know about any happy marriages? Are all the women in his mind like Brooke(KKL)?

GH’s Maurice Benard Memoir Available Now For Pre-Order

One of the most highly-anticipated autobiography’s, Maurice Benard’s (Sonny Corinthos, GH) Nothing General About It, is set for release on April 7th of 2020.  But now according to the book publisher, HarperCollins, you can pre-order your copy of the riveting real-life story of Benard now by heading on over to Amazon  to make your purchase.

According to the log lines and publisher notes: “In Nothing General About It, Maurice looks back to his youth in a small town and his tenuous relationship with his father. He describes how his bipolar disorder began to surface in childhood, how he struggled to understand the jolting mood swings he experienced, and how a doctor finally saved his life. For years Maurice was relentless in his goal to be a successful actor. But even after he “made it,” he still grappled with terrifying lows, breakdowns, and setbacks, all while trying desperately to maintain his relationship with his wife, who endured his violent, unpredictable episodes. Maurice holds nothing back as he bravely talks about what it was like to be medicated and institutionalized, and of how he learned to manage his manic episodes while on the set of GH. 

HarperCollins

Nothing General About It is also an incredible love story about an enduring marriage that demonstrates what those vows—for better, for worse, in sickness and in health—truly mean. Maurice also pays tribute to the community that has been there for him through thick and thin, and ruminates on the importance of both inherited and created family.”
