I think I did seven costumes changes that day.”  Sharon added,  “I really like when we do dream episodes. They’re out of the box and fun. This episode is very scary, though.

The cancer story is gawd awful..

It is about rich people with no concerns of paying for anything.

It is about a family pampering and they are free to support 24 hrs a day, because nobody is working a 10 hr day or themselves struggling with life problems just to sustain their lives while coping with cancer.

It is about a large family within a mile of each other to be there for her. through the day. No money problems, no obligations to keep food on the table while not being able to work.

It is PHONY ..
It is not how a great many people struggling with cancer live.
Many have no family, have no support, or family members that are 1,000 miles away with no money to fly home to support their loved ones.
This family does Not represent the families of ordinary people.

It is billionaire soap cancer..
It is not realistic of actual struggles.
When Sharon loses all her hair, pukes and withers away, and loses a breast, it doesn’t hit home.
,, Phony

Really? You’re a debby downer are you not? It’s what soaps do are tell stories and hopefully a good ones. Soaps have always used popular characters to tell social stories. You need to lighten up because “once again” just another brasher of YR…this is personally my favorite story on YR right now. I don’t go around spewing hatred about any soaps even the ones I hate.

hi Harlee,
I did not ”hate” anything..
I spoke; it is phoney and misleading to/of ordinary cancer suffering people.
I did not ”bash” Y&R, It’s my fav.
I simply do not like the unrealistic cancer story.
I have not ”spewed” hatred, I did not mention the word.
I’m happy you are enjoying the unrealistic cancer story. 🙂

The writers at Young and the Restless worked with AMERICAN CANCER SOCIETY AND MEDICAL EXPERTS in the field to create Sharon’s breast cancer story line. AND YOUR medical qualifications are…?

Harlee

Excuse me, I apologize, my bad but people just rant, rave bash YR all the time and get I get sick of it and someone needs to stand up for YR. I’m certainly not saying YR is in any condition of 100% (hasn’t been since they fired Kay in 2006…that was the start of the downfall of YR starting with LML. I know people doesn’t like JG but in my opinion I would rather watch Josh’s writings with his sometime good and sometime awful stories over Mal (hideous) Young any day! At least Josh doesn’t try to change YR and he does try to keep the classic feel we know about YR. Again I’m sorry of jumping the gun.

I have my battle. It just seems TV is making it a little more dramatic and not as serious as it really is.

In theory you are correct about certain things…however….do any of the 4 soaps have people of “normal” means on them? Honestly, the last I can recall was waaaaay back when OLTL had the Woleks as a core family. There is really not one family on any of the shows who does not have access to money, health insurance and great healthcare.

You are completely wrong! This storyline saved my cousins life as she immediately did a self exam, found a lump and caught the cancerous tumor before it spread! Her reconstruction surgery is next month! My tweet thanking Sharon was in soaps.com ! Secondly I took care of my dad, grandmother back to back as they fought cancer! Sharon breaks down and admits she’s getting best care because she’s blessed to have insurance! Your hate is what’s wrong with in the world!

Su000

That’s good to know..
Happy your cousin
found the lump
had many doctors appointments
lab tests
had chemo treatments
had surgery, removed breast
in 30 days time.
then after is having
reconstruction surgery
that’s extremely fast,
good she got help so quickly.
wish her a speedy recovery.

Did no one tell you that cancer does not play favorites? Cancer does not care how much money you have or don’t have. Nor does Cancer care where you live or don’t live. But hey, if watching Sharon struggle with her cancer diagnosis upsets you so much then don’t watch. No one is forcing you too.

Hi Anne,
I have never said I was ”upset”
I have said, it’s phoney and not realistic.
The soap cancer does Not represent actual people.

I doubt Sharon will take a second mortgage on her house
or have need to move to less expensive housing
nor will she need to go into a life long debt.
nor will she stress over how to pay for related needs.
it is those cancer-related problems that affect many.
The fear of not being able to maintain their lifestyle for their children, their families.
it is a huge problem with cancer inflicted people.

nothing about the story is realistic.
It is a PSA, that is good to inform people.
but still, it does not represent people working one or two jobs to survive and do not have family support 24/7; which is a great many.
but-
the PSA is good.. it may help someone.
education is always good.
It is a commercial/PSA story to alert woman.

((Sharon will not lose her hair nor her breast, she will not go into unmanageable debt, she will not face the serious struggles of everyday normal people fighting cancer.
Sharon will be just fine))

You know if you hate the show stop watching I have been upset with moments and storylines but nobody forced me to watch I for one appreciate the storyline just stick with it I have five friends who are suffering with it so put a sock in it f you don’t like it the tv does have a off switch ! SC is killing it and so is CG so give them a break it sure is better then watching Adam and Chelsea sit on the couch ! I might add though it’s not popular I think the good lord every day for my health every day maybe everybody might try that

I disagree with some naysayers here. If this story helps even one person or family know they’re not alone, it’s worth it. I’ve no doubt Sharon’s talents will be well used in this episode. Maybe she can finally score a Lead Actress nomination instead of the recent spate of nominees who deliver one mediocre episode and then just pose for the camera the rest of the year. I only hope it’s not gonna bring her and Nick back together. Rey has stepped up and deserves better treatment than his sister Lola has received from Kyle. Looking ahead to this!

I’m so sorry to hear what your going through, Celeste. I hope you get some comfort from the Sharon story. Hopefully you will be a long term survivor, as I’m sure Sharon will be. My best wishes and hopes for you and your loved ones.

Everyone deals with cancer differently. I would never say another person’s reactions or feelings were not legitimate. This is one person’s story.

Damien

I need Nick to be there for her in more ways than 1. He should be the only 1 who could truly comfort her.
Unless Mia comes back to meddle, Sharon and Rey do nothing for me.
I know its a serious story but its still a soap, this should bring Shick back together where they belong

GH’s Maurice Benard Memoir ‘Nothing General About It’ Goes Nationwide Today

Today is the day! After months of fans eagerly awaiting the nationwide release of two-time Daytime Emmy winner, Maurice Benard’s (Sonny Corinthos, General Hospital) moving and insightful memoir, it’s finally available in book stores and online everywhere.

According to the publisher HarperCollins: The memoir Nothing General About It, looks back to Maurice’s youth in a small town and his tenuous relationship with his father. He describes how his bipolar disorder began to surface in childhood, how he struggled to understand the jolting mood swings he experienced, and how a doctor finally saved his life. For years Maurice was relentless in his goal to be a successful actor. But even after he “made it,” he still grappled with terrifying lows, breakdowns, and setbacks, all while trying desperately to maintain his relationship with his wife, who endured his violent, unpredictable episodes. Maurice holds nothing back as he bravely talks about what it was like to be medicated and institutionalized, and of how he learned to manage his manic episodes while on the set of GH.

Nothing General About It is also an incredible love story about an enduring marriage that demonstrates what those vows—for better, for worse, in sickness and in health—truly mean. Maurice also pays tribute to the community that has been there for him through thick and thin, and ruminates on the importance of both inherited and created family.  A shocking, riveting, and utterly candid memoir of love, adversity, and ultimately hope, Nothing General About It offers insights and advice for everyone trying to cope with mental illness, and is a motivational story that offers lessons in perseverance—of the importance of believing in and fighting for yourself through the darkest times.  Nothing General About It includes a 16-page insert featuring approximately 50 photographs.”

The kid who barely graduated from high school, less likely to succeed. I want to thank everybody in the book, My mom and dad my brother General Hospital,Sue black all my friends and of course my wife Paula. To the great team Harper Collins for believing in me and working incredibly hard. There still working incredibly hard during these times. What a ride!!!”

Popstar! TV! Serves Up A Twist For Daytime Emmy Digital Drama Series Competition With ‘Evil Touch’ & ‘Death Squad’

This year the 47th annual Daytime Emmys competition features a crowded and mostly dramatic field of contenders in the burgeoning Outstanding Digital Drama Series category.  Over the years, this category has featured digital series that feature notable stars past or present from your favorite daytime dramas over the years from The Bay to After Forever.

Now comes two offerings and contenders from Associated Television International that are certainly not the usual suspects one would come to expect when voting for the different series in the running … for they have a significant horror-genre, superhero, or even one might say CW-type series bent to them. Both series have made it through into the Daytime Emmy blue ribbon round of voting.

Both Evil Touch and Death Squad are the series that are competing in the Outstanding Digital Drama Series and Outstanding Directing Team for a Digital Drama Series categories.  The shows both are seen exclusively on Popstar! TV – the only independent digital network producing original dramas.

But wait! When delving into the cast of Evil Touch we found some familiar faces to daytime!  Featured in it are: Daniel Covin (Ex-Hunter – Prospect Park’s All My Children reboot), Alicia Leigh Willis (Ex- Courtney, General Hospital, and Erik Fellows (Ex- Days and currently Damian in The Bay ).

Evil Touch is a horror -genre fish-out-of-water story with a demonic possession angle. It begins with a group of students from a small American college on a religious studies tour with their professor when they become stranded in the middle of nowhere. Seeking help in the village, they soon discover that there is something very strange and menacing about this place and its inhabitants. Before they know it, they find themselves captives and they learn that the villagers aren’t the only threat.

Photo: ATI

As for Death Squad that is in-line with some of the recent popular zombie series  ( i.e. Walking Dead) that have become so popular these days.  In it, members of a team of private contractors, all former soldiers who served together in Iraq are hired by a shadowy businessman to go into a former Soviet bio-weapons lab that has been re-purposed for advanced research and development. The team has few details when they enter the facility and begin searching for the lead scientist. Viewers quickly learn that something went very wrong in the lab, and as it turns out, it’s biggest threat is that most of the lab workers have been turned into the living dead.

Photo: ATI

Clearly, these two shows are vastly different from the love stories, familial dramas and relationship-driven types of fare that often compete in the digital drama categories at the Daytime Emmys.  Since they both have made into the blue-ribbon round; is it further proof that daytime and digital television is getting on-board with the horror genre, too?
