Fashion Police hasn't been itself since Joan died. The show should have ended after they aired the tribute episode to Joan (which was one of the funniest and most lovingly produced hours of television I have ever seen). Much as I like Brad, he wasn't George Kotsiopoulos, and Melissa wasn't Joan, and Nene and Margaret Cho weren't Kelly and without the original group it made no sense for Giuliana to be there. Ultimately, losing this gig is the last tiny bit of independence Nene had from the RH franchise - she better play nice or she's going to be lose big time.
Lu is fabulous and word on the street is all the NYC ladies are being brought back. Lu will be A-OK in the long run.
Yeah! I'm so glad that MA is as beloved by the cast. Who could've imagined that her presence would have centered the entire Abbott clan after years of drifting? As I said in the spoiler thread, Dina is a character that is completely organic to the Y&R canvas with real, not retcon, relationships and ties to GC that allow for future stories.
I'll gladly thank SSM for three things: 1) MA; 2) Restoring Sharon and Neil's dignity and 3) giving Lily back her career.
There is an episode of the Investigation Discovery series The 1980s: The Deadliest Decade entitled "The Newlywed Murder." Not only is All My Children brought up (the victim in the true-crime story was a fan of the soap), but footage from the serial is even used.
