  1. @FrenchBug82, @MichaelGL, @robbwolff There were some plot holes in the Annie story but I chalked that up to the various EP/HW changes from 1994-1998. Going from what was on YT yrs ago JFP (1994-1995): Annie was introduced as a nurse from Chicago that won a fellowship at Cedars. Annie was shown drinking wine at a restaurant and beer at a pool hall. Annie and Rick's first meeting at Cedars hinted they shared a past in Chicago. Laibson/McTavish (1995-1996): Annie was shown at an AA meeting where she spoke of being sober for one year. It was revealed that Annie was married to Rick and the marriage ended over her drinking and the involvement with Jake. Rauch/E&B (1997-1998): Annie was married to Eddie Banks and Annie faked her death to escape drug theft charges.
  2. Lindsay Wagner's mother Marilyn Ball and Linda Gray's ex-husband/childrens' father Ed Thrasher were siblings. Linda and Ed divorced in 1983 and Ed passed away in 2006. Lindsay is first cousin to Linda's children.
  3. Today (September 12) is Linda Gray's 80th birthday.
  4. The Daytime Emmys celebrated their 25th anniversary on NBC, the same network that broadcasted the first Daytime Emmy Awards. From the way everything was set up, NBC was expecting some big wins. Instead we got an ABC love fest, a streak being over (no, not THAT one), and the biggest upset ever.
  5. Roscoe Born was less than a year younger than Ron Raines, so age wouldn't have been an issue. JFP was still EP when Alan was recast so it's surprising she didn't cast one of her friends and instead went for an unknown. Does anyone remember if any big soap names were considered for Alan in 1994?
  6. This is shocking. RIP John Callahan. Three former Santa Barbara actors AFAIK have left us so far in 2020: Marj Dusay, Roscoe Born, John Callahan. Bad news really does come in threes.
  7. During 1996 it looked like B&B was preparing for a one hour expansion which would most likely have coincided with their 10th anniversary in March 1997 but for whatever reason that didn't happen. If CBS cancelled GL in the mid 1990s and gave half hour to B&B, what would've happened to the other half hour? Could we have gotten a 3rd Bell show and would the daytime drama block be rearranged.
  8. If you asked any music fan in the mid 1980s to mid 1990s which of the big three female pop stars (Madonna, Whitney Houston, Janet Jackson) was going to die a shocking drug fueled death before age 50, I bet 99% would have said Madonna. She has outlived Michael Jackson, Whitney Houston, Prince, George Michael. I really think that the next big music death is going to be her.
  9. Also from March 1995 Wendy Moniz first episode: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZWIC-UzZTEg Monti Sharp last episode: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=G_7Acub2lDA Besides the big cast purge and EP/HW changes, 1995 also saw recasts (Rebecca Budig, Russell Curry, Wendy Moniz, Toby Poser, Jennifer Rozell), returns (Lisa Brown, Michael O'Leary, Kim Zimmer), and time slot changes by CBS affiliates in major media markets. I'm amazed GL made it through the rest of the 1990s after all this went down.
  10. 25 years ago this month was Melina Kanakaredes' last episode and the start of a huge cast purge. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AM2muDPjyBA From what I can recall, there were 10 contract cast members that were gone by the end of 1995: Jean Carol, Barbara Crampton, Hilary Edson, Scott Hoxby, Melina Kanakaredes, Kelly Neal, Rachel Miner, Monti Sharp, Eugene Troobnick, Marcy Walker. Of course the biggest changes that year were the EP change from JFP to Michael Laibson and Megan McTavish becoming the new head writer.
  11. 25 years ago this month was the Fifth Street Fire. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=q6w1Bf-B5hw https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=g7ySvlfKJiA https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ULkBWGXuEPM This was probably Jill's last big umbrella storyline as she would be out in less than 6 months.
  12. 20 years ago yesterday (Dec. 31), NBC aired the final episode of Sunset Beach.
  13. David Canary's daughter wrote this. Sheds some new light on his illness and passing. https://www.nydailynews.com/opinion/ny-oped-did-football-kill-my-father-20190102-story.html
  14. It's Gordon Thomson's second role on Y&R. He played an attorney in 1997 or 1998 during the Daniel custody battle. It will be interesting to see if Gordon Thomson's character has any scenes w/ Adam, considering Adam Carrington and Adam Newman are quite similar in character. Also of note is that Bill Bell used the name Adam Alexander (Adam Carrington's middle name was Alexander) for Sally Spectra's first husband/Macy's father on B&B.
  15. Today (June 14) marks 30 years since Christopher Bernau passed away. RIP.
  16. Reading about Carmen Duncan's passing has me wondering about Victoria Wyndham. AFAIK Victoria is not on any social media. It's hard to believe that a good number of the actors Victoria played opposite of in major storylines are now gone.
  17. Wow, what a huge loss for Days. In the last 25 years they've lost almost all the heads of their major families: Macdonald Carey, Frances Reid, Joseph Mascolo, Frank Parker, and now Peggy McCay. Hard to believe John Aniston is the only one left of that generation.
  18. Days has had older actor/teenage actress meeting on the show and getting together in real life before. In the mid-1980s David Wallace and Lisa Trusel met on Days and they were married one week after Lisa turned 18. AFAIK they are still together some 30+ years later.
  19. Mary Ellen Stuart competed alongside Bobbie Eakes at Miss America in September 1982. Oddly enough they would both start on CBS Daytime within months of each other. Here's a video of both of them being announced amongst the top 10 (Bobbie was announced first, Mary Ellen was announced at 1:12).
  20. Bradley Bell followed his sister in law MAB in recasting Ridge and Thorne with ABC leftovers. Zack Slater and Jasper Jacks are not cutting it. Put on your casting director hats and recast the Forrester sons. Maybe this board could come up with better choices.
