Here we go again! Seems the powers-that-be at Y&R are making a change-up, a game changer, again. That makes everyone in the industry wonder, if Drucilla is on her way back to Genoa City.  Now if that were to be, it would appear not in the form of the talented actress and author,Victoria Rowell (Ex-Dru), whose novel Secrets of a Soap Opera Diva hasn’t even hit the bookshelves and is a hit, but a possible replacement for the role!

In today’s Soapgeist columnTV Guide Canada’s Nelson Branco stated, “As previously reported, Y&R is casting Malcolm’s fiancée, Simone. However, a revised casting call was sent out stating the character description has changed. Looks like Y&R is making their new black female role more like Drucilla by the minute. The role is expected to debut in May and begins taping in April.”  What is going on here?  Stay tuned.

If they are actually stupid enough to recast Drucilla when Rowell is available for the part, then MAB should quit. She is the empress of bad recasting and hiring/firing the wrong people!

Muhney is completely miscast as Adam, and she has made the show All About Adam. Reigel should be Mackenzie, so she’d be reunited w/ Hendrickson’s Chloe, but instead she’s Heather Stevens! Rylan should be Heather Stevens, but instead she’s a 29 year old Abbie, when Abbie should be a teen and they need teen Abbotts after stupidly killing off Colleen so Victor could temporarily be shipped out. All the more do the Abbotts need a teen character since they killed off Colleen, when the actress that portrayed her was actually decent, especially in that girls gone wild arc they did. She and JT had chemistry! Haiduk as Mary Jane, Patty, Emily is blech worthy. She ain’t anywhere close to Ashley Davidson’s brilliance as Kristen and the entire Banks on Days!

Knowing MAB, whoever they recast as Dru is going to be completely left field and a real stinker.

Rowell should either go to B&B as a new character, or head to Primetime and film since she’s that good.

Y&R is nuts to recast Dru.

Yeah, this is a bad move on the show’s part. The character and likeness of Dru that VR play is not replacable and they tried it before with Eva and it bombed miserable. Y&R, get on your knees and beg VR back as Dru and if the idiots have anything to say, they can lose their job too.

GH’s Maurice Benard Memoir ‘Nothing General About It’ Goes Nationwide Today

Today is the day! After months of fans eagerly awaiting the nationwide release of two-time Daytime Emmy winner, Maurice Benard’s (Sonny Corinthos, General Hospital) moving and insightful memoir, it’s finally available in book stores and online everywhere.

According to the publisher HarperCollins: The memoir Nothing General About It, looks back to Maurice’s 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.

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.  A shocking, riveting, and utterly candid memoir of love, adversity, and ultimately hope, Nothing General About It offers insights and advice for everyone trying to cope with mental illness, and is a motivational story that offers lessons in perseverance—of the importance of believing in and fighting for yourself through the darkest times.  Nothing General About It includes a 16-page insert featuring approximately 50 photographs.”
