      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 time….and her crying spells have been normal under the circumstances……so far! LOL.

        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 !

        Yeah, she is grieving her husbands death-if he IS dead…wish Jennifer Love Hewitt could appear as Austins Aunt and that she left that message-i know what you did ect. as a nod to her movie ‘I know What you Did Last Summer’…lol…we went from disaster flicks to dumb teen horror movie…lol

      Looks like she is the one making the others cry.

    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.

    • MBmomof3

      March 6, 2015 at 2:36 pm

      I have to agree that seems unfair and contrary.

      • su0000

        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..

    • Chrystie Delancey

      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.

      • Susan

        March 7, 2015 at 8:37 pm

        TOO LONG!

      Julie Haze I agree totally!!!

    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.

  4. Chrystie Delancey

    March 6, 2015 at 11:37 am

    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.

  5. Timmm

    March 6, 2015 at 11:58 am

    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.

    • Osgood

      March 6, 2015 at 2:07 pm

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

      • Carolyn

        March 6, 2015 at 5:05 pm

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

    • CeeCee

      March 6, 2015 at 4:24 pm

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

      • Chrystie Delancey

        March 7, 2015 at 11:29 am

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

    A subject that needs a huge light shed on it!

    @ 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 more I think about it, the more I think Sharon and Adam should re-connect.
    I also bet that if Adam went to Sharon with the truth, she would certainly accept him and the truth without missing a beat.

    • Chrystie Delancey

      March 7, 2015 at 11:28 am

      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.

    She is certainly showing last few weeks she has the potential for a great career beyond daytime

  11. Lana

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

  12. Rose

    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.

    • Lana

      March 7, 2015 at 7:48 pm

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

      • Rose

        March 8, 2015 at 9:42 am

        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.

    Does anyone know who the darker haired kid in the trailer is?

  14. Nikki

    March 8, 2015 at 5:48 am

    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.

    • jimh(leave it to beaver)

      March 8, 2015 at 9:52 am

      It does say she played Kristina on GH…and Kristina is indeed Alexis daughted!

      • Nikki

        March 8, 2015 at 3:08 pm

        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

      March 8, 2015 at 3:14 pm

      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.

    March 8, 2015 at 4:29 pm

    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.,

GH’s Mark Lawson Fuels At-Home Workout With Soap Opera Competition: “Dante, Dante, Dante, Dominic, Dominic, Dominic … But What About Dustin?”

As fans and colleagues of General Hospital and former One Life to Live star, Mark Lawson (Dustin, GH) know, he often posts on his Instagram account at-home workouts from his garage including: exercises with: kettlebells and free weights. In real-life, Lawson is a fitness guru, as well.

In one of his most recent posts over the holiday weekend, Mark used the constant chatter of a potential return of Dominic Zamprogna to GH to reprise his role of Dante Falconeri (which would pit Mark’s school teacher alter-ego Dustin at-odds with Dante, for the love of Lulu (Emme Rylan)) to charge up his workout routine! So what’s a guy to do?  Bicep curls!

Next, fueling his workout in a hilarious send-up, Lawson, as he is curling dumbbells remarks: “You want Dante back? Dante, Dante, Dante … Dominic,Dominic,Dominic … It’s all you talk about.  It’s all you care about, but what about Dustin?  What’s up with Dustin?  Where’s good guy Dustin? School teacher Dustin, who never shot nobody.  Never hurt anybody and all he wanted was a girlfriend.   All everybody talks about is Dante, Dante, Dante. Dominic, Dominic, Dominic.”

You can watch Mark’s IG post below!

Then let us know, if you hope there will be some healthy soap opera competition for the love of Lulu down the line between Dustin and Dante, if Dominic returns to the show.  If he does return, would you be Team Dustin or Team Dante? Share your thoughts via the comment section.

GH’s Michael Easton Posts “Ask Me Anything” Part Two

This week, Easton posted part two of his “Ask Me Anything”, and the fan favorite said he he will do his best to get through everyone’s questions and thanked those who made donations to America Health Care Workers and food banks during COVID-19.

In part two; questions ranged from: his connection with his on-screen brother played by Josh Swickard, if he would ever consider a return to Days of our Lives to reprise the role of Tanner Scofield (his first soap role), what is his favorite part of playing Hamilton Finn, and the casting of his on-screen daughter Violet played by Jophielle Love and more.

One question posed to Easton revolved around the just completed Daytime Emmys, when he was asked: “How many times have you submitted yourself for the Emmys? Some actors seem to put a real emphasis on being nominated but you don’t seem to care that much?”

Michael responded: “I’m pacing myself. I’ve maybe submitted three or four times in twenty years. It’s a lovely honor but not something I focus on. Everyday I try to give the best, most truthful performance I can and as I long as I can do that…I live with myself.”

Make sure to “Like” Michael’s official Facebook page, if you have not already to see more of his “Ask Me Anything’s”
