  1. Tyler Perry's 'Haves and Have Nots' on OWN

    Oh, I definitely agree with you on both things. This is just the first "major" character that's been gay on a Tyler Perry production and I was curious to see how he was going to handle it. And yes, I appreciate how realistic Veronica is written. I was just surprised that Tyler Perry was willing to recognize that.
  2. Tyler Perry's 'Haves and Have Nots' on OWN

    I'm really conflicted about the message TP is sending with this Jeffrey storyline. On one hand, it's disheartening that the gay character is becoming a possessive psychopath, but on the other, Veronica is clearly being portrayed in a negative light with the way she speaks to him about being gay. I really wish they could salvage his character somehow before he goes to unredeemable territory.
  3. But has every gay man you've ever met been honorable and tactful? There are trashy people in the world--gay and straight. Just because Ron is gay doesn't mean he has to whitewash a character just because they're gay.
  4. Y&R Actor Makes a Return

    I know I'm in the minority, but I've always loved Gloria. I actually miss the days of her being relevant, but I still enjoy her when we get to see her. Jeffrey, I can take or leave!
  5. This exactly what I'm talking about. Sometimes people in the real world are hot heads and they do things they shouldn't. No one is making you see Rafe as the victim or TJ as the villain. It's a story and if you think TJ is justified, then you could root for him if you wanted.
  6. Personally, one thing that has kept me from posting here as much as I used to is a lot of the phrases that are currently being thrown around in this thread. Hack, propping, "shoved down our throats"... Any time that someone doesn't like what a writer has written, it's all of a sudden that they're a hack! Any time someone doesn't like a character that is being featured heavily, that character is being propped and shoved down our throats. What really makes me laugh is when people start saying, "I guess we're supposed to like this" or "we're supposed to feel this"...um, no. No one is telling you what to feel. A writer has written a STORY and like all pieces of fiction, you can feel however you want and just because maybe you aren't feeling or seeing the story in the way the writer maybe intended, it doesn't make what they have written any less valid.
  7. Finally, a thread for me! JER is my favorite soap writer, bar none. I loved his first stint and second...though clearly the first was superior. Even when he was bad, I found something to be entertained by!
  8. Tyler Perry's 'Haves and Have Nots' on OWN

    I'm so glad to see this show getting discussed! I had basically stopped posting here, but will definitely be joining in the discussions about this show. Despite his flaws, I have always enjoyed Tyler Perry's work, and I have to say that this show really exceeded my expectations. First off, I am shocked that he included a gay character (I'm really hoping he doesn't screw it up). But come on--the gay subtext, the shirtless (and at some points, pantless hunks)....is there any denying Tyler Perry's hidden sexuality?!
  9. PC: Alison Barrington Lovefest

    I always loved Alison! She and Livvie were the highlights of PC for me. I wish that she had at least gotten a little more screentime on GH before being killed off, but I'm glad we got to see her at all!
  10. Brook Kerr's son files lawsuit

    OMG I had no idea that she was almost 40. And I'm very sad to hear about this. I always hate finding out not-so-great stuff about people I've liked...and I always loved her as Whitney.
  11. Chad Duell gets divorced.

    Totally agree. KA is by no means hideous and by many standards, people would find her pretty. But because she's on television, people think that they can rip her and anyone else apart with cruel names. It's a sad world we live in.
  12. YES. I loved all of that and long for those days again!
  13. The Cher Thread

    I love all things Cher!! I really don't get the deal with her new music, though. I love "Woman's World", but this "new album" has been pushed back and pushed back for over a year and even this single has been drifting in cyber space for what seems like forever. I'm really gonna need her record label to step up! My favorite work from Cher was actually on her most recent album, 2001's "Living Proof"...flawless dance pop!
  14. I find the hate that Sabrina and Ellie on GH are getting to be completely unfounded. Every head writer creates new characters and merges them with existing ones and these are TWO characters. THREE if you count Britt. Some writers take over the entire show with their newbies and that has not been done on GH. I guess the world would be boring if we didn't find SOMETHING to complain about.
  15. Unpopular Opinions on TV (Outside of Soaps)

    Considering I've seen strong criticisms of both of these shows on this board, I'd consider this unpopular. I believe that Desperate Housewives and Grey's Anatomy are two of the best shows of the last ten years and certainly this decade's Dallas/Dynasty or Melrose Place/90210. Just my opinion.
