Oh man, this is sad. I loved David Canary, and AMC went downhill fast without him. I'm wondering if he had Alzheimer's, which would explain the lack of publicity. The family was able to have the private service they had planned, before announcing his death.
I never checked to see what caused the skin color issue, but it could have been any of a number of things. It probably wasn't anything serious or harmful, and I only mentioned it because it probably scared the actors away from selling consumer products via MLM networks.
No, Burton dropped out of Monavie around the time the MLM had some very serious legal and internal business problems, and there was a resulting shakeup. There are far fewer distributors involved although some are still making money selling it. At one time they had a major online presence, and their website showed their various sales levels. That information is closed off now, but the last time I was able to look, Michael Saucedo (Becky Herbst's husband) was listed at the $1 million level. I didn't see any of the other GH people who had been involved. Several of them, especially the Cheetwood brothers and Burton, used what they learned from Monavie and created or were involved in MLM campaigns for other products but I don't know that they're involved in any of that now. They all made a ton of money from Monavie so they may not need to work very hard now. The last time I paid any attention, they were using Burton as their spokesperson to hawk some kind of supplement for body builders that turned its users a rich golden color. It was taken off the market and all they seem to have lowered their online presence.
Racism at this level would get you a swift kick in the pants. Sexism (hopefully) would not go unremarked. Apparently ageism is alive and well on SON. Actually, I would enjoy seeing most of those people (excluding Victor who has been overexposed with inappropriate love partners) having love scenes. You can go make yourself something to drink if you don't like it, as I often do when watching Y&R.
I took a sick day from work to watch the very first day of GH. I was in love with John Beradino, and then Roy Thinnes came along and was the frosting on the cake. I liked both Jesse and Audrey, and I always preferred the hospital drama. Still do, when GH chooses to pretend there's a hospital around.
Apparently I was completely wrong, and that was an actress doing one of the nastiest parodies ever of a tight-ass woman. I had no idea. No shade. I'm perfectly willing to come right out and say it when I think a performance stinks.
I'm disappointed because I respected GH for hiring a transgendered person.
That was the response he gave at a PA when fans were pushing him about what his wife thinks about his love scenes. At the time they had two children and she was in college, so she probably did have better things to do.
I've never heard anything about Mrs. SBu being disdainful of soaps. There's a lot of territory between not wanting to watch your husband swapping spit with scene partners and being disdainful of his job.
GH had a transgender actor back in the 90s who played a character named Miss Smead. She was the heartless person from Accounting who got patients kicked out when they didn't have the financial means to pay their bills. Cue the music for Super Jason to rush to the rescue. She harassed Elizabeth to pay Lucky's hospital bills, even though they weren't married and she wasn't responsible for his debts. She worked for Dr. Ford when he was chief of staff.
