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 »

TONIGHT: 73rd Primetime Emmy Awards on CBS

Who will take home the gold at Sunday night’s 73rd annual Primetime Emmy Awards?  Well, from the looks of it .two heavy favorites going into it are Ted Lasso in the comedy categories, and The Crown in the dramatic categories, but as we have seen on previous Emmys there may be upsets afoot.

Other leading contenders through the night will include the series: The Mandalorian, WandaVision, The Handmaid’s Tale, Saturday Night Live, Lovecraft CountryThe Queen’s Gambit and Mare of Easttown.

Cedric the Entertainer will host the three-hour special on CBS beginning at 8 pm EST emanating from the Microsoft Theatre in Los Angeles.  Pandemic and all there will be a return to an opening number.

The broadcast’s executive producer, Ian Stewart, confirmed an opening number, when he previously told Deadline, the number “is going to be a lot of people participating, singing, rapping.  It’s hopefully going to be a very impactful start, a ton of fun.”

The Primetime Emmys will have nominees in attendance, with a more limited amount virtually, and those who have tickets can stay in the venue through the whole show, unlike the Grammys or Oscars were those nominated were ushered in and out.  Look for the Emmys to take place outside the theatre under a tent.

One Life to Live alum Renée  Elise Goldsberry (Ex-Evangeline) will be competing in the Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Limited or Anthology Series or Movie for her role in Hamilton.  Another OLTL alum, Jonathan Groff (Ex-Henry), is nominated for Outstanding Supporting Actor in a Limited or Anthology Series or Movie for his role in Hamilton, as well.

In the Outstanding Actor in a Drama Series, Sterling K. Brown tries to win another Emmy for his role as Randall Pearson on This Is Us.   To view all the nominees, head on over to the TV Academy’s website.

This past June, CBS also aired the 48th annual Daytime Emmy Awards in a pre-packaged show for broadcast due to Covid-19 restrictions.

So, who are you rooting for to win the gold at the 73rd annual Primetime Emmy Awards? Comment below.

GENERAL HOSPITAL: Sonny Remembers Carly Just as She Is Marrying Jason

After nine months of being “Mike”, Sonny Corinthos (Maurice Benard) had a major breakthrough as his memory is all coming back to him now (as the Celine Dion song says), and in the process the Tan-O has burned to the ground, signaling the the probable end to the Nixon Falls arc of the story.

As the story picked-up on Thursday, Nina’s (Cynthia Watros) plot to keep Sonny for herself and away from Carly majorly backfired on her.  Not only does Phyllis (Joyce Guy) now know that Nina lied about “Mike’s” identify the entire time, but Peter August (Wes Ramsey) is running wild and free heading back to Port Charles to claim his baby and Maxie (Kirsten Storms), after setting fire to the building.

Since “Mike” ran in to save Nina and got hit by a beam in the process, he is alone in the burning Tan-O enveloped by flames, but that triggers the beginning of his memory coming back.

Meanwhile, back in Port Charles, Jason (Steve Burton) and Carly (Laura Wright) are at their wedding, with the five family mob bosses present with a plot of their own and everyone wondering if Jarly will say “I do'”.    The two light a candle together for those loved ones no longer with them … ah, Sonny!

Back the burning Tan-O, Sonny is visited by the vision of the real Mike (Max Gail) who tells him it’s time for him to go home now.  A conflicted Sonny tells Mike he is very happy in Nixon Falls with Nina, but Mike tells him he needs to know his past in order to move forward.  When Sonny has flashes of his violent past it frightens him, and he says whatever family he has is better off without him in their lives.

Jax (Ingo Rademacher) tries to text Maxie while still in Nixon Falls with Nina to watch out for Peter, but she is attending and managing Carly and Sonny’s wedding, so she doesn’t pick up the phone!

Inside the Tan-O, Sonny sees a vision of woman, who when she turns and faces him is Carly. While Sonny is lying on the floor and is engulfed in flames and trapped, Mike tells Sonny he can die as “Mike” or live on as the man he truly is, Sonny.  It is then Sonny calls out “Carly!”

So, what did you think of the episode? Do you think Carly and Jason will get married? Will Sonny tells Nina he remembers? What will Nina’s next move be? Are you glad Sonny seems to have his memory back? The episode featured another strong performance by Maurice Benard.  Share your thoughts below.
