    At this point, it'd be better just to burn down the mansion and have its residents live elsewhere.

    IDK, slick, Eric always came across to me as a boy with Nicole, regardless of the actor portraying him.  Same goes for Brady.

    UO: I still like DAYS' Nicole and I still think she is due for a Doug-and-Julie-like great love story.  (Deimos ain't the guy.)

    I agree completely that soaps have forced too many familial ties among characters.  Not one soap today doesn't have a canvas of people that borders on the incestuous.

    You know, I think you're right, Carl?  The more I think about it, the more I think it WAS Teresa Blake who said she couldn't stand working with them.  Of course, I'm not surprised Blake didn't like them.  God knows I wasn't a TB fan, but even I knew she was a much better actress than SMG, ELR or KR.  (SP was probably the only one in the clique with acting chops -- and I say that as someone who isn't a fan of hers either.)

    I don't have specific details, but...
     
    When SMG, ELR, SP and KR were working at AMC, they rubbed several of the show's old guard the wrong way with their collective sense of self-entitlement.  They were all young, and cute, and receiving a lot of airtime and publicity, so in their eyes, I guess, they saw themselves as indispensible -- a notion that neither the producers nor the network disabused them of.  I can't remember which actor or actress said it, but someone remarked in an interview how the ladies' unofficial clique was real and that that was one reason why working on AMC was not altogether pleasant for them.  (Compare that to Jane Eliot's recent comment that AMC backstage was the most familial environment she'd ever worked in -- but that was years before, when many of the show's most familiar actors from the '70's and '80's were still around.)  Of course, years later, SP acknowledged the clique and apologized for her behavior.  I'm not sure WHERE she said that -- it was from an interview she had given that was quoted either on this board or on another -- but I found it interesting that she would offer a mea culpa in light of the fact that Ripa, Gellar and even La Rue found success after leaving AMC while Penny's career faded by comparison.

    I thought Reid Oliver (from ATWT) was David Kreizman's brainchild, not Jean's.
     
    If GH were serious about giving Lucas a love interest, however, I WOULD suggest someone who was as abrasive and emotionally complicated as Reid.  Sort of a gay Dr. Alan Quartermaine (with a demanding mother or father to match).

    Money is not evil.  The love of it is, though.
     
    And Kelly was never sweet.  Anyone who remembers the backstage stories about her, Sarah Michelle Gellar, Eva La Rue, Sydney Penny and their "mean girls" clique at AMC knows what I'm talking about.

    Careful, "Jonny."  The folks are starting to catch onto you.  
     
    You could tell how much Kelly HATED Michael's laugh toward the end of the clip.  It was all she could do just to sip her morning whatever.

    As we speak, I am sending KS an application I picked up at Build-a-Bear Workshop.

    Stop attempting to "shock" and "surprise" the audience with in(s)ane plot twists that aren't logical or believable, let alone shocking and surprising.  Just rely on the characters, let THEM, and not their predicaments, be the thing that entices the audience.  Do that, I believe, and the audience will forgive a multitude of sins.

    I don't know which is worse: Michael Strahan, the morning TALK show co-host; Michael Strahan, the morning NEWS show co-host; or Michael Strahan, the primetime GAME show host.  What's next?  "Michael Strahan Live!"?

    I'm sure DAYS would love to have her legendary Broadway ass.

    Strahan wants to "grow beyond interviewing celebrities"?  Does he expect to be moderating "Meet the Press" someday?  GMAB.

    I always preferred Robert Pine.
