  1. Half-Pint Ingalls spills such strong TEA on her Instagram account!:excl:

      It's an older post (well, not that old, from a few weeks ago) that includes a picture of her an Bette Midler where she recounts her on again off again relationship with Rob Lowe.  Nothing really new but it's funny that she casually mentioned Rob's cheating with Princess Stephanie of Monaco which caused a temporary breakup before they got engaged.  They were at some event featuring Prince when Midler randomly asks her something like "So, Princess Stephanie...what the hell was that?" and Melissa Gilbert laughs and flashes her engagement ring.  What's hilarious to me is that she tagged Rob Lowe in addition to tagging Bette. :lol:

      Well, at least she's not gossiping behind his back.  And I guess after he tried to drag her in his first memoir, she's more than entitled to return the favor, lol.

  2. Am I the only one who didn't know that Jada Pinkett-Smith was named after her mother's favorite soap opera actress Jada Rowland? I'd love to see Ms. Rowland as a guest on Jada Pinkett-Smith's Red Table Talk series as I honestly don't know much about her (Ms. Rowland).

      I didn't know that either. Wow. I would love to see her interviewed. I have some old '70s interviews but that's about it.

      I wonder if anyone has told Jada Pinkett about the Doctors reruns with Jada currently airing.

    2. DramatistDreamer

      DramatistDreamer

      I wonder if they ever met.  From what I read Ms. Rowland is an artist, a painter.  I'm not a member of Facebook so unfortunately I can't post there.  Somebody should mention it though, lol.

      I only heard that recently. I doubt that Jada and Jada ever met, so it would be interesting. 

  3. Happy International Women's Day and OMG!

     

  4. I was Today Years Old when I found out that Amazon founder Jeff Bezos' current girlfriend Lauren Sanchez' ex-husband is the brother of soap writer, Christopher Whitesell.  Apparently, Patrick Whitesell is one of the most powerful "figures" in Hollywood.  Draw you own conclusions as to Christopher Whitesell's viability in the industry and the reasons behind it.

      I don't think so.  It appears that Patrick Whitesell was only ever married to Lauren Sanchez (they have three kids) who now dates Jeff Bezos.  According to IMDB, Evans was married to a guy named Robert Eth before her current husband, an actor.

      Their other brother, television director John Whitesell, was EP of Another World and Search for Tomorrow in the mid-late 1980's. He also worked as a producer on Guiding Light and Texas.

       

      Their late brother Sean - an actor / writer himself, was married to Sanchez's former KTTV Fox 11 news colleague Maria Quiban, until his death in 2015.

       

      Chris and John's work in soaps / TV in general started before Patrick's career really took off.

      With the possible exception of his time under Marland, Chris Whitesell's work on ATWT was not good. 

  5. Nathaniel Taylor, best known as "Rollo" on Sanford & Son died on February 27th.

      My sister loved her some Rollo.  Fred couldn't stand him and it was hilarious!  

       

      RIP, soul man!  🙏

      My grandmother used to watch Sanford and Son reruns every day. It had such a good cast.

      RIP. The ensemble from Sanford and Son is so easily overlooked but they were great.

  6. Today is basically Misdemeanor and Felony Friday with all the people facing criminal charges today! I'm looking at you too, New England Patriots owner.:ph34r:

  7. This Black History Month has been trying my patience.  I think I'm going to need another month.

      Chances are, though, as soon as we get that second month, Congress will pass a bill to banish it from the yearly calendar.

      DramatistDreamer

      In this day and age, I wouldn't put it past anyone to propose it.

  8. If you would've told me that Warner Wolf's actions would be one of the highlights of Black History Month so far this year, I would probably have said "Whaaat?!"

      Apparently, he had been pleading with the Homeowners Association to remove it and they kept telling him they'd look into it.  I can't blame him for wanting to tear it down.  Don't think I could live in a place that calls itself a Plantation.

      I was looking for a new house early last year. My white realtors asked me about "Kelly plantation" subdivision. I told them me and my daughter can't live on a plantation. They got quiet lol

  9. A lawsuit alleges that Jerry Seinfeld tried to sell a fake Porche? Sounds like an episode of Seinfeld, except it would be George Costanza or Kramer doing the selling.

  10. So, am I going to get daily e-mails saying "New Device Login" every time I log in using the Incognito option of my Chrome browser?  I've been logging in this way for years yet suddenly I'm getting daily messages about this.

    How do I stop the daily e-mails?

      I am too. I log in from my computer every day and get an email every single time.

  11. The Captain of Captain & Tenille has passed away.  He was the same age as Bob Einstein and Gene Okerlund.

      I see it too. We can't allow him back, @Errol.

  13. At least there are no notifications from people on the Ignore list.  I can't see them quoting me unless I venture into the actual thread as I've just discovered.

      He tried to send me a slew of PMs explaining how I should post. I tried to patiently explain the reason his attempts at condescending to the entire board and passing incorrect info on the soaps have alienated everyone. He apparently has a long history of this elsewhere and ragequits the forums each time.

    3. DramatistDreamer

      Are you serious??  He tried to tell you how you should post??! Hot A*s*s Mess!  

    4. Vee

      It's all he ever does to people on SON since his arrival not long ago, so I wasn't surprised lol. From what I've heard it's his M.O. anywhere. That and passing along wildly incorrect info (like when he claimed the Bells still have some control at Y&R, and when he said HWs have to get their plans past the creative consultants).

  14. So is it true that Sony is surveying people to find out what they think of a cooking show?

      It crossed my mind that it could be Y&R. Days just seemed more likely because they've been on the block for so long. I wouldn't be truly surprised by any soap cancellation at this point.

      Interesting article/concept. I don't know what specific questions/feedback were but it wouldn't surprise me if some type of food show were created to promote this on some platform.

  15. Another Twitter death hoax. This time involving the offspring of an actress who once did soaps, Maggie Baird who played Dr. Taylor Baldwin on As The World Turns, but apparently had made appearances on Another World and Days of Our Lives.  Why do people do this?  It's sick.

    1. Juliajms

      Juliajms

      I agree.  The internet has made me see that I just don't understand people.

  16. Why am I seeing posts by people that I've put on Ignore previously?

  17. So what's the best way to embed You Tube videos this time?  The old methods no longer seem to work, at the moment.

      :lol: :lol: I will probably wait too because I don't like just posting the link without at least a thumbnail image and I'd prefer the entire video being accessible within the post.

      Thanks @Soapsuds Maybe it's been fixed since I last tried.  I'll try a little later.

  18. Nikki Minaj needs to ask herself if she's got a Fast Car...fast enough that she can dodge that oncoming lawsuit.

  19. Did we all forget to mark the 88th anniversary of the Soap Opera?  It happened yesterday according to WLS.

      DRW50

      Soaps were so important to people back then, helping millions with the pain and toil of an uncertain life. I wish that people in the industry knew even today soaps could have that power. We need them more than ever. 

    2. DramatistDreamer

      DramatistDreamer

      Yes, me too. 

      Even when the genre was at its height, the execs behind the production companies did little to promote the art of the daytime drama, other than as a cash cow.  

      The people in the industry have been actively diminishing their own product for about a good twenty years now.  

  20. Did Judy Garland really curse out Grace Kelly for "stealing" what Garland thought was her Oscar from for A Star Is Born

    1. Khan

      Khan

      I wouldn't be a bit surprised.

    2. BetterForgotten

      BetterForgotten

      Judy wasn't even at the Oscar's that night (she was in the hospital giving birth to her son), but she was a raging alcoholic (not to mention her pill addiction) at the time so it wouldn't be a surprise. By all accounts, it was Judy's increasingly difficult reputation in Hollywood that cost her that Oscar - most critics seem to agree she deserved it over Kelly, but Kelly was America's sweetheart and the ideal American beauty at the time, so she was a safer choice than Judy. 

       

      Poor Judy was eaten and spit out by the industry that made her and also broke her. 

    3. DramatistDreamer

      This is what I mean by awards and awards shows being a flawed measure of greatness (see: Greatest Soap thread remarks) but folks keep going on and on about how awards are some objective metric of quality.  They're not, they're totally subjective and biased, just like much of how we evaluate art.

      Thanks for proving my point @BetterForgotten:wub:

  21. Watching this interview with Kathy Griffin and it has the frankness that you'd expect but it's provides a very informative play by play on recent events in her career.

     

    1. DaytimeFan

      DaytimeFan

      Loved this interview. The Breakfast Club did a great job and they clearly understood and liked her.

  22. Honestly, if any producer of daytime soaps had a lick of sense he/she would've rebooted a revamped Capitol at least two years ago!

      As long as they avoided the usual broadcast network suspects, the show would stand half a chance. 

      Politics are the new soap opera and have been for at least two years now.

    3. DRW50

      DRW50

      I think this would be a great idea for something like OWN. The main networks wouldn't have the guts. 

    4. ReddFoxx

      ReddFoxx

      Good point. Politics is full of drama as it is so the writers would have little trouble coming up with scripts.

  23. Help: Is there a way to ensure AutoPlay is off when embedding a video into thread posts?  Sometimes when I embed a video, the video plays on a loop and I haven't been able to stop it from playing over and over.

    Can someone help? Is there something in the Source code that can help?  

    Halp! Please.:unsure:

      At this point, I feel like it's Streamable's fault.  I did a quick check online and I'm seeing that all videos that used Streamable software play on a loop! 

       

      It's a shame because Streamable was so easy to use, but I unless someone from the company gets back to me with instructions on how to make sure the video doesn't keep looping, I'll have to find another free software to use (preferably one that I don't have to download and take up space on my computer).

       

      This is becoming too complicated just to post/embed some clips.

  24. Sally Field is relieved that her forthcoming memoir won't be read by Burt Reynolds.
