Lol, jimh. You always manage to put a smile on my face. Have you noticed that Summer has gotten so much more ‘adult-like”? I think she has been handling Austin’s death quite well considering all the mystery surrounding the it. and his cheating heart. It makes it so much worse for her because Abby is her aunt. I never liked the character, now I like Abby even less.WOW! So gross. It is very natural to blame oneself in many a death case. Summer is mourning her husband’s death….she’s desperately juggling the pain/love/hate she feels for him right now. She needs… Read more »

Ps. I think Hunter will do a fantastic job….she has really grown as an actress, and she grows on me with each passing episode. Good luck , Hunter!

Please stop having Summer on everyday. Plus why did Chuck Pratt dis Sharon Case on twitter with retweeting haters saying how much Sharon Newman is sluty , That isn’t nice for a head writer to tweet that and agree saying Sharon has slept with every man. Shame on Chuck Pratt. Fans are not happy at all about this . I dont have respect for Chuck Pratt now. Isn’t it enough Eric B ( Victor ) is always attacking Ms Case in interviews !

So Hunter King is able to star in a movie and make guest appearances in Primetime, but Billy Miller is denied that in his contract negotiations and Phelps lets him go? Gee, do you see any double standards going on here? What rubbish.

I have to agree that seems unfair and contrary.

well
it looks like an after school PDA movie about bullying mostly for the young audience ??
I like Summer best when she is quiet ..and it seems in this movie she’s a bully so she must have a lot to say lol ..
Hope the movie does well for the girls..
( I have zero interest in a teenage bully movie but I wish them the best..

It looks like it was made in 2013. How long has Phelps been with Y&R?

Maybe it was made before the crackdown on extracurricular work.

It’s too bad the studio distributing the picture did not have it released last week for anti-bullying day.

I guess that explains why she colored her hair too.

I wanted to add, it looks like this film has been sitting in the can since at least 2013. They are lucky to get it released.

Good for her, I hope she becomes a movie star and she takes Ryan Peavey with her to Hollywood! [That ones for you Shay!]

She had some practice for the role when YR had her bullying a classmate a couple of years ago.
I’ll watch the film when it comes to cable.

I believe another actress was playing Summer while the bullying occurred.

I wouldn’t be surprised — it wasn’t one of the stories I focused on.

Oh, yeah. Summer did bully a classmate. I am not sure, but did the boy commit suicide in one episode?

He was the kid that Ronan was mentoring. I thought he ended up moving out of town, not committing suicide.

@ Carry J. I don’t understand either why TPTB have reduced Sharon to such a low level . She certainly doesn’t deserve it. I think “they” made a big mistake by making her lose it….everyone losing his/her trust in her. Nick is a big jerk. He always said how much he loved her….would understand anything she had to tell him. That’s not love. I have not been fair to Sharon many a time….but, she needs to be redeemed somehow. I have been rooting for Adam and Sage. But, now? Well, I have very strong misgivings with this improbable relationship. The… Read more »

Well if Sharon is indeed going to be paired with Dylan (as it appears she is), then they can only strengthen the character as Steve Burton has become the darling of the show.

I, for one, can only hope that Sharon and Dylan make a cute couple and they finally stop ruining the character.

The movie was filmed in late 2012/early 2013 during the bullying storyline on Y&R.

I’m glad Summer is maturing as an actress, especially after the Michael (ex-Adam) fiasco. She took a lot of hits back then from same naysayers. It probably helped her “get into the role” in her upcoming movie. I’m sure it’s not easy to play such a baddie, but at the same time if it helps any teens it’s a good thing.

This movie was filmed long before all that drama. Most indie movies take at least 2 years to be released

Lana…Thanks for info. All in all, Hunter/Summer’s life certainly has been with a lot of emotional drama from film, tv, to her real life.

I think the little dark haired girl use to play in General hospital. I think she was Alexis daughter. Anybody know? If so she’s a fantastic actress.

Thank’s Jim. I don’t really like H.K. but I always liked the other actress. Weather she plays a victim or hero she always plays it well.

I feel like I’ve watched this movie on Lifetime. I know the subject matter, which is important has been captured on the small screen, and i’m sure HK will do an excellent job. I enoyed her in White House Down. Wish I cared for Summer. She whines for all occasions. Austin’s death was just the next reason.

I hate how SC’s role has been diminished. It’s time Sharon repaired her relationship with Mariah onscreen.

Nikki
Guest

I agree Faye. I don’t know why they tore Sharon’s role apart but I would like to see her with Dylan and make up with her daughter Mariah. Lately they seem to be catering to the young kids at the cabin. Hopefully once they find out about Austin’s plan we can get back to Michael’s cancer, Nikki’s drinking, Sharon & Dylan and Sharon & Mariah making up, maybe even Kevin & Mariah but I’m sick of Summer & have been for some time now.

Btw, I’m glad February sweeps are over. Perhap we can get back to seeing characters that weren’t invlolved in frontburner storylines, of which none were overly compelling.,

Stars React to Alec Baldwin Fatally Shooting Cinematographer Halyna Hutchins & Injuring Director, Joel Souza, In Prop Gun Mishap On Set of ‘Rust’

UPDATED: Over the last 24 hours, the entertainment world has been stunned, by the horrific incident that took place on the set of the western drama Rust, while it was shooting scenes in New Mexico.

What is known is that Alec Baldwin (Ex-The Doctors, Knots Landing) discharged a prop gun that killed Director of Photography, Halyna Hutchins and injured director, Joel Souza.  The film also stars Frances Fisher (Ex-Edge of Night) and Jensen Ackles (Ex-Days of our Lives). Baldwin is also a producer on the film.

According to Variety, the prop gun contained a “live single round,” according to an email sent by IATSE Local 44 to its membership.

On Friday, Alec Baldwin made a statement via Twitter on his Hilaria and Alec Baldwin Foundation Twitter feed, expressing: “There are no words to convey my shock and sadness regarding the tragic accident that took the life of Halyna Hutchins, a wife, mother and deeply admired colleague of ours. I’m fully cooperating with the police investigation to address how this tragedy occurred and am in touch with her husband, offering my support to him and his family. My heart is broken for her husband, their son, and all who knew and loved Halyna.”

Yesterday, The Sante Fe Sheriff’s Departments originally shared that “Hutchins, 42, and Souza, 48 were shot when a prop firearm was discharged by Alec Baldwin.  Ms. Hutchins was transported, via helicopter, to University of New Mexico Hospital where she was pronounced dead by medical personnel. Mr. Souza was transported by ambulance to Christus St. Vincent Regional Medical center where he was undergoing treatment for his injuries. This investigation remains open and active. No charges have been filed in regard to this incident. Witnesses continue to be interviewed by detectives.”

This morning, Frances Fisher revealed in a twitter conversation with Patricia Arquette, that director Joel Souza had been released from the hospital.  Meanwhile, photographs of a distraught Baldwin emerged following the shooting.

The news of the Baldwin prop gun incident, isn’t the first time something like this has happened. Jon-Erik Hexum was killed on October 18, 1984, on the set of the TV show Cover Up when he accidentally shot himself in the head with a gun loaded with blanks. Then, in 1993, Brandon Lee, the son of martial arts legend Bruce Lee, died from a prop gun accident on the set of The Crow by a cast member.

As the news made its way through the entertainment community and mainstream news, several soap stars shared their reactions to the fatal shooting accident.

General Hospital’s Jon Lindstrom (Kevin/Ryan) expressed: “Feeling so sad for everyone involved in the tragedy on the #RustMovie set. I do know the film was staffed with experienced, thoughtful professionals. Please, let’s wait until we have the facts. Nothing positive will come from passing judgement or casting aspersions before then.”

General Hospital and Dynasty’s Emma Samms (Holly, Fallon) shared on her friend Jon-Erik Hexum’s death: This AWFUL tragedy on #Rust is unfathomable to me. If all on-set protocols were being adhered to, how, on earth, could it have happened? After what happened to Brandon Lee and my dear friend Jon-Erik Hexam, the firearm protocols became incredibly strict. I was told (when I was with him at the hospital afterwards) that Jon-Erik had been working with a completely empty gun all morning. A blank (still very dangerous) was loaded and then immediately there was a delay. Exhausted, he was allowed to fall asleep – loaded gun in hand. hey woke him, but there was immediately another delay. Jon-Erik put the gun to his head, forgetting it now contained a blank, (because he had just woken up) and jokingly pulled the trigger. He was not the kind of person to play around with a loaded gun. #fortherecord”

We will continue to post reactions and update this story.

What are your thoughts on the fatal shooting on the set of Rust? Comment below.  How can this not happen again, so everyone is safe in this working environment when ‘dangerous’ props are called for or used to make a movie or a TV show?

Courtney Hope Gets Marriage Advice From Her Y&R Co-Stars Ahead of Her Wedding to GH’s Chad Duell

This weekend, The Young and the Restless Courtney Hope (Sally), is set to walk down the aisle and marry the love of her life, General Hospital’s Chad Duell (Michael).  The nuptials are to take place this Saturday, October 23rd according to the wedding planner Zola.

Ahead of the popular soap duo’s vows, Courtney asked some of her Y&R co-stars advice, but as their characters in a very cute Instagram video on The Young and the Restless IG account with the accompanying text: “Marriage advice you don’t normally hear… as told by the #YR stars 😉 A special thank you to our real-life bride-to-be @TheCourtneyHope for asking! 😂”

Participating are: Peter Bergman (Jack), Amelia Heinle (Victoria), Michelle Stafford (Phyllis), Mishael Morgan (Amanda), Christian LeBlanc (Michael, Eileen Davidson (Ashley), Elizabeth Hendrickson (Chloe), and Christel Khalil (Lily).

In terms of advice, Amelie Heinle told Hope, “As Victoria Newman, I would say that you need to marry a man that is not going to be around for very long, and especially if he has a lot of money.”

Christel Khalil offered up some Lily marital suggestions: “Don’t let your husband let you think that he’s dead and that you’ve slept with a ghost!”

As for Courtney and Chad, the couple had been dating for five years, and this past Valentine’s Day, they became engaged.

Please share your well-wishes to Courtney and Chad as they embark on their life together via the comment section below, and let us know what you think of the marital advice given to Hope from the citizens of Genoa City.
