While Justin Hartley has been wowing us as Adam Newman on The Young and the Restless, his other most memorable performance was that of Patrick on ABC’s Revenge.

News broke yesterday that the soap opera in the Hamptons has come to an end and the series will air its final episode after four years of nail-biting cliffhangers and twists and turns involving the Grayson family and Emily Thorne/Amanda Clarke.  Hartley came on the seen in season three as Patrick, the son of Victoria Grayson (Madeleine Stowe), who we soon learned was gay and had an on-screen relationship with Nolan Ross played by Gabriel Mann.

As others in the cast including series star Emily VanCamp (Emily/Amanda) were tweeting their sentiments, Hartley took to Twitter too and simply stated, “Congrats to the talented cast and crew of @Revenge for 4 great years of storytelling. What a run.  Proud to have been a small part of it.”

Gabriel Mann then tweeted to Hartley,  “Blast working together pal.. still have a scar from the fireplace log Patrick clubbed Nolan with 😉 #GoodbyeRevenge”  To which Justin replied,  “Should have just talked it out.”

So did you enjoy Justin as Patrick on Revenge? Would you have liked to see him return before the series bit the dust? Sad to hear the show has been cancelled by ABC?  Comment below!

Hey, as long as we have Adam and Y&R, there is no need to be afraid about Revenge being cancelled.

But it was more tan that, it feature un forgetable characters like Emily/Amanda, and Victoria. BTW, I don’t think that Victoria is really dead. I think she got out in time before the mansion exploded!

I’d love to see Nolan and Patrick together at the end of REVENGE but I don’t think it’s gonna happen ~ too late.

I agree with you totally! Why do they have to cancel all the good shows?

Using Hartley short term as Patrick disappointed me. He was good in the role and the idea of Victoria’s two sons vying for her love and attention as well as a place in a post-Conrad world would have made some good storytelling… and allowed for another wild card in the REVENGE game. Patrick eventually would have to go but I wish he stayed around longer.

I cannot say I agreed with the tales spun on REVENGE (ugh… The Initiative) but it was a good series. Better than most we see on broadcast or cable TV these days.

I hear you, iakovos! Patrick was one of the best Revenge characters ever, and his pairing with Nolan was epic. I always wished he would return so they would be endgame when the show finally reached its conclusion. Having said that, other than missing Mr. Ross in the worst way, I’m not going to be sad to say goodbye to Revenge….it long ago lost its way and became much more of an obligatory habit than a guilty pleasure. However, I do hope to see Gabriel Mann pop up somewhere else very soon….he was totally enchanting and utterly adorable as Nolan! If he’d do daytime, I would love to see him on GH! They truly need someone with his superb sartorial splendor, savvy and sense of sarcasm!

I’m very sorry this show has been cancelled. I always looked forward to Sunday nights because of the show. I will miss it terribly!

I enjoyed Revenge but with the newer executive producer and writers the show has gone in a different direction. Very few of the original cast remain. I believe it is time for the show to end. Justin was Great on Revenge and is Fantastic as “Adam” on Y&R.

On the bright side, we are also (breathlessly) facing the approaching end of the insufferable Margaux….yes, Yes, YES!!!!!!!!!

When I started watching Y&R again in December I knew I had seen that actor somewhere else. Now I know..I never missed an episode of Revenge. I can’t imagine where Gabriel/Adam and Chelsea are going from this point. I personally never understood why the character of Chelsea was ever introduced or considered on the soap. So, I don’t really care if she stays or not. I do like this actor as Gabriel/Adam however.

I liked Justin on Revenge. He just wasn’t there long enough. And the show had run it’s course after losing Conrad, Daniel and Aiden. But I really liked him as the Green Arrow/Oliver Queen on Smallville. Another coincidence to go along with su0000’s comment…wives names starting with “Ch”…Chloe on Smallville, Chelsea on Y&R. I know, a bit of a stretch.

I’ve watched Revenge since day one. I too looked forward to Sunday nights. But alas all good things must come to an end. I will miss it.

Justin Hartley is great. I’ve enjoyed him in everything I’ve ever seen him in: Passions, Aquaman pilot, Smallville, Mistresses and Revenge. Y&R scored big when they landed him.

Broadway Legend Carol Channing Dies At 97; B&B Remembers Her Time On The Soap

The beloved and iconic star Carol Channing has passed away at age 97.  Best known for her performance as Dolly Levi in Hello Dolly, the Tony Award-winning actress also picked up a Golden Globe for her role in Thoroughly Modern Millie, and was nominated for an Academy Award for it as well, throughout her enduring career.

Reports on Tuesday detail that Channing died at her home in Rancho Mirage, California, of natural causes.

While Channing did so much in her illustrious career, she also appeared as herself back in 1993 on CBS’ The Bold and the Beautiful.  That’s when the Forresters staged a celebrity-filled fashion show with plenty of glitz.

In a tweet with a photo of B&B’s enduring star, John McCook (Eric Forrester) pictured with Channing, the daytime drama shared: “All of us at mourn the loss of our friend, the legendary star, . She was a true original and there will never be anyone like her. Ms. Channing appeared as herself on B&B in 1993. May she rest in peace.”

Channing’s performance as a diamond-loving showgirl, Lorelei Lee, in the Broadway musical Gentleman Prefer Blondes back in 1949 made her a star.  Marilyn Monroe would play the role in the film adaptation.

Later in her TV career, she appeared on numerous shows including: Rowan & Martin’s Laugh-In, The Love Boat, Touched by an Angel and several game shows, to name just a few.

David Canary’s Daughter Raises Question If Repeated Head Traumas From His Football Past Contributed To AMC Star’s Condition Before His Death

Chronic Traumatic Encephalopathy (CTE) is a progressive degenerative brain disease that is now widely known to be the outcome of repeated head traumas, concussions and more for many NFL athletes, Pro Wrestlers, hockey players and more   It has caused mental illness, severe behavioral changes and more in younger athletes to even old-timers, many who suffer unaware what is happening to them. Some athletes who have committed suicide have been later to have been diagnosed with CTE when their brains were donated to research.

Kate Canary, the daughter of All My Children’s beloved and late, David Canary (Adam/Stuart Chandler), is a contributing writer to the New York Daily News, and she wrote a heartfelt, and thought-provoking article, on just what happened to this icon, who died in 2015 at the age of 77  with his formal diagnosis being Alzheimer’s disease.

However, David’s earlier football past as a high school and college football player could very well been the reason why he suffered so many years before, and as Kate related here in these excerpts: “But this diagnosis came after years of suffering with Dad’s cognitive decline, and arguably decades of signs. Without exposing the most excruciating details of a disease that could extinguish the most vibrant of men, I can confess that his case was anything but typical.  We lost him in fits and starts, over and over, for roughly seven years leading up to his final breath. Begrudgingly, we learned to lie to him — ‘entering his world,’ as my brother Chris so delicately deemed it — to skirt the contradictory truths that would trigger his outbursts, which left physical scars on objects, on himself, and on others. We knew many families who had faced Alzheimer’s, yet we were the only ones uttering the comparison ‘Jekyll and Hyde.  Those closest to Dad witnessed firsthand the erratic, delusional and at times explosive episodes that characterized his particular case, which we tried attributing to an overactive imagination in a broken brain. But as more information emerges about CTE and the nature of its symptoms — the violent mood swings, the lapses in judgment, the hours-long hallucinations, the paranoid delusions — we are left with more questions than answers, more regret than relief.”

Kate goes on to state the facts that David Canary suffered at least four major concussions as a lineman in his high school and college football playing days between the ages of 16 and 22, (she also relates that those are the ones he remembered).  She also notes the multi-Daytime Emmy winning star has experienced cognitive difficulties decades before his Alzheimer’s diagnosis, and that there was no genetic lineage that the family knew of that would you would often find with Alzheimer’s patients.  She also noted that David’s volatility was unusual for a patient suffering from this disease, which leads us all back to CTE.

In the end a loving daughter asks the questions, “Did football kill my father?”  Kate was on the verge of looking into a way to donate David’s brain to science, but sadly he passed away eight weeks later in November of 2015.

The upshot is that when mothers and fathers allow their kids to play football or other-related sports at an early age were concussions are a possibly or involved, think again, you could be changing the course of their lives forever.

So, what did you think of what Kate shared about David Canary’s mental health and condition?  It would seem CTE could have been the root cause of what befell this giant of a man in the daytime soap world. Share your thoughts via the comment section below.
