Eileen Davidson, the Daytime Emmy-winning star concurrently appearing on The Young and the Restless and Bravo’s The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills had had more than her share of loss and heartbreak over the last few years.  Eileen has lost her beloved sister Connie to cancer on March 21, 2014.  A few months later she also lost her niece, Brook on  May 11, 2014.  Last year, her father-in-law Dick Van Patten passed away in June.

Since Eileen has been part of the ‘Houeswives’ reality show franchise, she has been sharing her thoughts on her personal life and moments from episodes from the series on a blog at BravoTV.com.

This week, she shared the news of the sudden passing of her older brother, starting her entry with: “I’m here with a very heavy heart to share the news of another beloved family member passing away.  Sadly, my eldest brother, John “Jack” Davidson, left us suddenly last week at the age of 69.  My big brother was a brilliant man. He graduated Cum Laude with a major in Chemistry and a minor in Mathematics from St. Mary’s College. A proud Vietnam veteran, he served our country as an air traffic controller during his deployment. He loved old cars and considered himself a ‘muscle car aficionado.’ He was heavily involved in all kinds of athletics, especially martial arts. At the age of 56, he received his black belt in Shorin-Ryu Karate. John had a wicked sense of humor and a great love for his family.

Eileen ends her post with a special message:  “I’ll be back next week to blog. In the mean time, in honor of my brother, I ask whoever reads this to take a minute to remind someone important to you that you love them.”

So, what did you think of Eileen’s blog post and the passing of her beloved brother? Share your thoughts and condolences in the comment section below, and take a moment to do as Eileen asks today, remind someone important that you love them.  Let us know you did that, too!

I love that woman. She’s such a talented woman. How tragic to lose so many family members in such a short period of time. I really wish she would come back to DAYS and give us Susan, Kristin and maybe Penelope back from the dead who is relatively normal since god knows Kristin is a total wack job now!

I am so sorry, for your loss Eileen. My sister and I are close again, we didn’t talk for 4 years. It broke my heart in pieces. I ran into my sister at a shopping mall here in Vancouver BC, Canada. We hugged right away and cried so much. Life is to short. Let’s enjoy life. Eileen stay strong and you have fans who love you very much.

Eileen, I’m so sorry at the loss of your beloved brother and the other losses in your family. Especially so close together. I can relate, as, I was involved in a tornado on 6/23/15, lost most of my home, car, sheds, deck, all my equipment, and much more. Three family members. My 1/2 sister, my cousin’s first born son out of eight children, my sister-in-law, and before Thanksgiving, my sister-in-law unexpectedly. Saturday, I buried my best friend’s husband in Maryland. As a tribute to all, I’m sending this tribute to you on behald of your brother. “My Brother” By Ann… Read more »

Bryan Craig Teases His Role in Upcoming ‘Joker’ Sequel

Former General Hospital star and two-time Daytime Emmy winner, Bryan Craig (ex-Morgan Corinthos) has been quite busy these days with his continuing role on Freeform’s Good Trouble and now the biggest tease of all!

Craig took to his Instagram account and posted an intriguing pic, which from all indications mean he has landed a part in the upcoming motion picture Joker sequel Folie à Deux! (“Madness for Two”).

Because details on the upcoming film have been top secret, Craig erased his character’s name on his cast parking sign when he posted the image.

What we do know is that the upcoming Joker sequel will see the return of Joaquin Phoenix in his Oscar-winning role as Arthur Fleck. The cast includes Lady Gaga as Harley Quinn, plus Brendan Gleeson, Zazie Beets, and Catherine Keener.

The film is due out in 2024.

Looking forward to seeing Bryan in Folie à Deux? Comment below.

Lori Loughlin To Make Holiday Movie For Great American Family

Lori Loughlin (Ex-EON and Full House) will be making a holiday movie for Great American Family. Look for production to start later this year.

The announcement of the upcoming Christas pic follows on the heels of Loughlin’s Fall Into Winter which dropped on January 28th on GAF.

The movie marked Lori’s first romantic comedy screen appearance since serving time in 2020 for her part in the college admissions scandal. She returned to acting after her prison time, and after being let go by the Hallmark Channel in When Hope Calls which was a spinoff of When Calls the Heart.

Bill Abbott, President and CEO of Great American Media had previously shared: “Lori is a genre-defining star that I have had the honor to call a close friend and collaborator for more than 15 years. We have a shared vision for creating meaningful and memorable movies that resonate with our passionate fans, and I look forward to welcoming her back to Great American Family to anchor our 2023 winter programming slate.”

So what do you think of a Lori Loughlin/Great American Family holiday film on the way for later in 2023? Comment below.

Marcus Coloma On His GH Exit: “I Don’t Know Why That Decision Was Made, But I Don’t Feel Any ill Will and I Didn’t Feel I Got Fired”

This week, GH fans saw Adam Huss returning to the ABC soap opera as Nikolas Cassadine to finish out the rest of the scenes originally intended to be played by Marcus Coloma who ended his three-year run on the show a tad early.

As has been previously reported, Coloma came down with Covid-19 as his final tape days neared, and a decision was made for him to not return to finish off his last run of episodes.

With all the rumors and stances taken by everyone involved, Coloma was the special guest on this week’s episode of the That’s Awesome Podcast hosted by Steve Burton and Bradford Anderson and discussed his departure from the long-running daytime drama series.

Marcus expressed that when he took the role on GH, he was excited to be in that kind of environment (working on a soap opera), and only signed on for three years.  However, as time went by it became more difficult to reconcile leaving when his contract was up, sharing: “You fall in love with the crew and everybody along with it. So, two and a half years in, this decision that was so clear in the beginning is getting complicated.”

The actor added that while, “I knew the end was coming, it wasn’t like GH was saying, ‘Hey, Marcus, we want you to stay.’  There was no negotiation … and all I can say to that is I don’t know why that decision was made, but I don’t feel any ill will and I didn’t feel like I got fired. It just felt like … there was maybe an understanding that I was going to be there for three years. The big surprise is how much it hurt. Even though I knew I was going to leave.”

In the end, Coloma reflected that this may have concluded as it should, adding, “I really do have some big goals and those goals would have never been realized if I would have stayed. That’s not to take anything away from GH because I admire everything about it.”

Watch the episode of That’s Awesome featuring Coloma below.

Then weigh-in, what do you think of Marcus’ thoughts on his exit as GH’s Nikolas Cassadine? Share your thoughts in the comment section.
