Of course that was the choice. It was Pratt and JFP's subtle way of trying to remind the audience how this great pairing, Nick and Sage that is, got their start. They're the next Luke and Laura. Jack and Jennifer. Bo and Hope. Holly and Roger. Mac and Rachel. Pratt and JFP are gonna make sure we see that!
Dru can stay dead. I like Jasmine Guy but no to that casting coup.
And Neil fit in perfectly at Jabot more than he did at Newman. At least Jack respected him more. Dare I say it, but Neil could possibly be second in command at Chancellor behind Jill. I never saw why Cane was given that position at all. His ass needs to work from the mailroom up.
But back to what I said before, I just don't see Neil being repaired after this mess. Maybe jail time will do it but with Pratt in charge, I just don't see it.
Very true. But given Cord's past and how Asa treated Maria, I could see Cord being sympathetic to race issues. I hate how the Boudreau clan was treated at GL. It's like no one even tried to invest in them post putting Mel with Rick. Poor Remy didn't find footing till the last year of the show, and I am still livid that Mel that strapped to Jenna's bastard offspring (Cyrus) out of all people.
I also used to get pissed at how people used to blame Mel being hitched to Rick as the reason Rick didn't get any stories. But those same people later became elated when Rick cheated on Mel with Beth, leaving poor Leah and Mel in the dust. I felt that Rick never paid for his sins but different show, different thread....
Oh wow. Those Sheila clips are WAY ahead of their time. Sucks that post this story, nothing really changed in daytime or Hollywood in general until now. At least in Hollywood and primetime. I'm conflicted because part of me is proud of Sheila's reaction but the other part of me is pissed b/c she didn't flip out and sock the casting director and Babs in the face.
I'm glad that Tina and Cord stood up for Sheila and quit the play. Only thing that unnerved me was Tina bringing up that Cord is 'Mexican,' which is a peeve of my own. She had good intentions but I wanted to reach into the screen and shot at her that Mexican isn't a race. It's a nationality. She should've said that Cord was biracial with white and mestizo--but whatever. The scenes were poignant and beautiful. I really enjoyed them.
It's Tamra's fault. Point. Blank. Period. She stays having her hand in the pot when it comes to women coming and going on this show and it needs to stop. They need to cast someone that'll dog-walk her ass one good time.
And I watched the RHoBH Revealed show and found it interesting. It makes me miss how BH used to be. Sucks that after s3, the show would go to crap. Last season was good but I have a feeling that this season is gonna be crap too. Especially with everyone questioning YoLyme's disease. Is this like a West coast housewives thing? Questioning people's ailments? I hope this does not dominate the season like Brooks' cancer did on RHOC.
And I miss Camille too. I am one of the few Camille purist fans as I loved her day one, season one. I always felt that Kyle envied Camille's wealth.
Exactly. You can't spend all of season establishing a character coming out the closet and being super pro-gay but then debunk all that character progression so that he can hook up with a woman at the first chance. It's bulls--t! I feel like Jamal has been one of the few characters that has floundered so much this season. He is the total opposite of who he was season one. It's like the writers are conflicted in what to do with him. It's annoying. Sucks b/c he used to be my favorite brother but now I find Hakeem to be the most interesting brother and I wanna turn the channel when Jamal is on.
I'm glad they are throwing Rhonda a bone as of late but they seriously could do more with her character too. Why isn't she scheming more? Why isn't she using this baby to get in closer with Lucious and pull at his heartstrings? Is there even actually a damn baby? And it's time to dig into Rhonda's background.
(re: Max) Did they really do the Max/Asa potential father son crap twice? It was implied in the episode above and we all know that Asa believed that Max was his son in the late 90s too. Why would the same idiotic story be told again when it was debunked. Unless Asa assumed Max was his son up until about 98/99. IDK b/c I didn't start watching OLTL habitually till about summer '02.
And how cliche for Paul Rauch to bring on black characters in a rap story. From the looks of it, of course it didn't take off b/c it wasn't believable. How could the audience believe Kerry to be a rapper when he came from an upper-middle class background. Especially when rap was derived from the streets. Especially when gangsta rap was taking over. If Rauch was gonna sell it, he should've made Kerry lower class.
Watching Alex slice into her hand was so stupid. But seeing Cassie sit there and cry like a drip over Bo was even more stupid.
I am not happy about Jamal being 'straight' now too. Can we have ONE f-cking gay character on a show, a gold star gay, that is confident in his sexuality and doesn't flounder about? If it was established from the start that Jamal was bisexual then fine. No complaints. But he expressed numerous times in season one how he was repulsed when Lucious used to push women on him. So now he likes a woman?
Clearly, Lee and Danny are binge watching Dynasty again and they wanna pair Stephen Jamal with a woman in the near future. Just stop. It's 2015. Write a damn story for gay characters that don't consist of them questioning their sexuality. It's old. Tired. Retire the trope. I'm ashamed that Lee Daniels, a GAY man, would even green light this crap.
