Seriously? Ugh. That's why I always like to hear from the actual constituents of politicians. That's the kind of story you only learn from someone with boots on the ground so to speak. One of the things I love about this thread is getting "local" perspective from posters here.
Jamey had indicated on a recent podcast that his secret scoop would cause pandemonium for viewers of one of the soaps. Pratt coming back to write GH would certainly cause that. The only other thing I could think of that would cause a panic is Brian Frons becoming involved in soaps again. Perish that thought! I have heard nothing of what became of that scumbag, but if he was wise, he would have assumed a new identity in a third world country. Soap viewers do not forgive and forget things like what he did--EVER!
RB is a beautiful woman and a fine actress, but even she couldn't turn her lackluster storylines into gold. That is in absolutely no way her fault. I think part of the reason Hayden didn't catch on was because they didn't bring Jeff Webber back to play out her backstory. As a result,making her a Webber didn't really click. Could any longtime viewers buy that Jeff Webber wouldn't want to meet his own daughter immediately? It just didn't work for me.
