  1. B&B Actress Out

    No shocker. Three women was just too much for Liam to juggle. Seriously though, agreed on the quick burnout. There was potential to keep her around as a long-term character, but with the instapairing of her and Thomas that came crashing after the actor's exit, plus burning down the beloved Spectra set itself... writing (or lack thereof) was on the wall (which burnt to the ground, oh the puns and metaphors are endless!)
  2. Bravo's The Real Housewives of....

    I can't believe I'm actually excited for this show to return. They're all such triflin' posers (except Monique) but I can't help but watch. Poor sloppy Charriissee didn't make the cut! Atlanta: I loved the end of yesterday's episode when Kandi got fed up with Kim and started with her pissed-off-but-crying voice. Kim can NOT take it, but loves to dish it, and I cannot wait for her distorted face to get all flustered at the reunion. I must admit, I felt for NeNe re: Uber rape joke incident. I never knew the instigator in the crowd was heckling her and told NeNe to kill herself. I can understand NeNe reacting without thinking first and clapping back with the distasteful joke. NeNe looked genuinely remorseful and ashamed, not just for camera and reputation-rebuilding purposes.

    Eric Martsolf is one of those soap vets whose not going anywhere unless the show pushes him out the door or gets cancelled altogether. At this point, I think the character could use a rest because his angry brooding schtick with his scheming woman du jour is tiresome. I would love for them to bring Kyle Lowder back and see how another revisit of Brady/Chloe would turn out. Plus, Brady needs to look *younger* than Eric and Sami, not the big brother of the Black/Evans/Brady kids.

    I thought it was all but confirmed this would be Kenya's swan song? I hope she goes out on a high note. And I'm loving the rumors about Kim being dragged like the gutter trash she is.

    Ah! There ya have it then. Thanks for the write-up!
  6. Bravo's The Real Housewives of....

    Damn, I haven't even seen the episode and I am living for Teddi's blog comments. Now THAT'S how you save yourself from becoming a one-season-wonder. A lot of these broads HATE having to look into the mirror and be *accountable* for their actions and motivations. Sounds like last night's episode is a clusterfunk of frustration and drama.
  7. Bravo's The Real Housewives of....

    That whole scene looks like such a sh-tstorm that I'd LOVE to see.
  8. Front burner to forgotten

    I don't think dead people count.
  9. Soap Stars - Where are they now?

    Jackie Taylor an Episcopal priest? Wow, I'll always remember the first time I saw her - strung out on coke and booze, as West Beverly's fashion show host. Ah, good times...
  10. B&B March 2018 Discussion

    Oh my Lord, I'm not the only one. Those eyebrows have been a major distraction. They're like thick lifeless caterpillars that sometimes look like a thick permanent marker and sometimes some shoe polish dye job. Just horrible.
  11. Days Of Our Lives Renewed

    That's my first thought. "Hooray, Deidre and Kristian etc. have a job for another year!" I'm happy for the cast and crew, and can only hope they conjure up something good. I agree, it's the budget restrictions, the episode guarantees, etc. that keep this show from becoming a solid performer overall. And yes, fix the lighting to hide the cheap, cardboard re-dressed sets. And please remember that when people are supposed to be "outside," there should be ambient outdoor noise to reflect that. Just make sure you get your background cues correctly. About a month back, they had the sound of crickets chirping... in February. No. Wrong. Anyhow, I think they'll keep Ron Carlivati. I don't think this one-year reprieve means Ken would pull out one of his buddies to be headwriter again. I mean, Ron has given more material to Ken's golf buddy, Josh Taylor, moreso than anyone else in years! Definitely. It seems ever since 2011, any actress (usually a "known" soap name) under 40 brought on is given a bland, unexciting, one-dimensional role and expected to turn water into wine.
  12. B&B March 2018 Discussion

    For the episode where he was shot, I watched for the theatrics/production values as well. Listen, it's something DAYS could never pull off. Similarly, Y&R looks rich, luxurious, and spacious in comparison to cardboard blue-room Salem. I'm going to go with expendable Jarod or newly on-contract Justin. Didn't B&B do something similar with the secretary, Megan, where she was a recurring character for years and then they finally gave her something to do (literally; wasn't she involved with Thorne?), and they turned her evil and wrote her off.
  13. Front burner to forgotten

    Whatever happened to Holly's mom on GL? I think she was last seen in 1996.
  14. "Roseanne" revival

    That's really good... however, I couldn't see it actually garnering 15 million on network television, a la Big Bang Theory today. I loved that trailer! So glad to see a glimpse of "craftmatic adjustable Bev" in the right kitchen chair. She looks exactly the same. For those torn, ignore Roseanne Barr the actress and focus on Roseanne Conner, the character, along with the rest of the Conner family at 714 Delaware St in Lanford, Illinois.

    If OLTL can flashback to Mia Korf while Kassie DePaiva is playing Blair, anything should be possible.
  16. B&B February 2018 Discussion

    Whatever happened to Carter's February Sweeps storyline? Weren't they going to reboot a Carter/Maya/Rick tale? That literally happened for one single episode.
  17. DAYS: February 2018 Discussion Thread

    Martin House is DAYS' version of GL's Beacon Hotel, which was "renovated" into condos to rent. Everyone lived in a damn hotel room. Even Blake Marler, who had 3 young kids stashed in a closet.
  18. Bravo's The Real Housewives of....

    Oh man, that looks GOOOOOOOD! I've missed these ladies and it looks like they're gonna deliver us another fun year! I love that we always get to see them film around the holidays in recent seasons. Jill/Bethenny sighting at Bobby's funeral! LuAnn strutting like a boss post-rehab. Dorinda slurring her words again. Catfights and caviar! Can't wait for April 9th!
  19. Bravo's The Real Housewives of....

    Christ, yes, LOL. On one hand, you can see the difference between made up and not made up at all (see Nene this past week during her alone time with Porsha) and realize "yeah, it's best they wear makeup whenever they're filming." But on the other hand, you had the NYC cast demand a pay raise around season 5 or 6 because they all needed a personal makeup crew for the entire season of filming. Apparently, they had already been using their own makeup teams, but out of their own pockets. But people like Erika are just too done up. Always. Can't she take the "less is more" approach for just one day?
  20. Bravo's The Real Housewives of....

    Haven't seen BH yet, but Kyle is known to bring in the big dogs to fight her battles (The Morally Corrupt Faye Resnick, for starters). Just by seeing a clip of Bethenny/Kyle vs. Lisa, you could easily tell Bethenny had been prepped and kept up-to-date by Kyle so she could go in hard on LVP. Glad to know LVP kept her cool. She's passionate about dogs but not crazy about bitches, indeed. Dorit's overly large breast implants (that don't look 100% symmetrical) on her tiny body looks EXACTLY like Tori Spelling's botched chest circa mid-90's 90210 era. Not an attractive look.
  21. Two More Actors Back to Y&R

    Aw, that's sweet. I like seeing them together all these years later. It's like when DAYS brings back the "Last Blast" crew. The early 2000's was the last time soaps had strong teen groups that didn't completely fall apart or they didn't age 'em up too soon (minus Shawn-D & Belle being parents to a 19-year-old)
  22. DAYS: February 2018 Discussion Thread

    Aw, Melinda Trask. This could’ve been Ria’s comeback role...
  23. B&B February 2018 Discussion

    I wish someone would tell Bradley Bell that Daytime Emmys don't mean squat anymore, so he'll finally get rid of Katie Logan. And quit trying to make Wyatt happen. And if you're going to actually use Thorne, just bring Winsor Harmon back and we'll pretend Jax was never there. Until then, peace out B&B.
  24. Days of Our Lives General Discussion

    I was just about to post this. So random to start in September 2011. I'd rather they start from 1993, but I suppose that'll never happen...
