Quick question, Toups: When we were talking about Taylor's future recently and you said that you could see her starting her own record label, I wanted to ask you: Do you see taking over Big Machine someday from Scott Borchetta?
I'll Fly Away, for sure. A brilliant series that ended way too soon. And for something on the opposite side of the spectrum, Two of a Kind (say what you will about the Olsen twins, the adult actors MADE that show).
And now Nancy has gotten a shoutout on a Dlisted article about Viola's win last night. I'm thinking she won't be Hot Slut of the Day anytime soon now! OTOH, sounds like MK's a GH fan: http://dlisted.com/2015/09/21/icymi-viola-davis-speech-after-making-history/
What's strange to me is that she's spoken before about how GRATEFUL she is to daytime and GH, because it's a steady job for a working woman like her, who is single with a young daughter. She's been a daytime cheerleader for years. So the idea that she's complaining about not being in primetime seems...odd, to me, to say the least. Especially now, when she's been there for so long.
She needs to stop tweeting RIGHT NOW. All she needed was one apology, direct and to the point. All she's doing is making things worse.
And the thing is, I do think that Buzzfeed underestimated her place in daytime/on GH. She is a great actress and I tend to agree with her more often than not politically. But she's made a fool of herself, whether it's largely a result of too much wine or not. And unlike the times where she's run her mouth on Twitter before (or anything Brydog or even Ron has said before), she really can't talk herself out of this. I'm actually willing to cut her some slack-- the intersectional side of feminism is something that I--a 26 year old, white, blonde-haired blue-eyed woman, and a PROUD feminist--have only really started to understand very recently, and I can see how women of a certain age might have just started to open their eyes to it now, because unfortunately, it is an issue that only really started to earn attention now (see also: the Taylor Swift/Nicki Minaj Twitter mess--although one can argue TS is using it as a shield to deflect criticism of her work. YMMV, of course.). But this was a BAD way for her to finally learn about it.
I'm just waiting to see if Shonda Rhimes will say anything now, because Nancy will REALLY feel the heat if that happens.
Also: She actually had the nerve to suggest Viola Davis hasn't faced discrimination in her career? WTAF.
