  1. It's surprising that they are still even doing the awards since daytime is so limited now. Four soaps is too low of a number to even be competitive and all the shows are just getting nominations for existing which is pathetic. The fact that all of Days of Our Lives' wins have been post cancellation of the other soaps is sort of embarrassing. It is sad because I remember how prestigious the Daytime Emmys were despite daytime never being as respected as primetime. Now it's just like a chamber of commerce banquet or something.

  2. Not everyone evaluates all situations individually, though. You have a system of government, courts, etc. filled with people who are determined to use the actions and of one person as precedent to blame entire groups of people.

  3. Chris Brown had a fairly substantial base of over the top fans. Some girls even went as far as to say he could beat them and they wouldn't care. He still was able to make his label and other parties money. Rihanna also became involved with him again, so that diminished some of the talk of what he did.

     

    The issue for Smollett is that he made very serious accusations in a time when hate has dramatically increased and also made it political. He made a fool of a lot of prominent people. He doesn't have a huge fan base and probably wouldn't make anyone enough money for them to hire him.

    Here's the list of all of the people charged.

    For as much attention as the Hollywood types are getting, I'd like to see an investigation in to all the other people named on this list. I bet you'll find a lot of prep school types a la Brett Kavanaugh.

    You will definitely find those types. Sometimes when I hear some graduates of prestigious colleges speak I wonder how they got there because they don't speak that well and don't seem that smart. To an extent, education has become less about knowledge and more about social status and name dropping colleges.

    Yeah, that irks me as well.  Why must Lori and Felicity go down for this WITHOUT their husbands?  There's no way they couldn't have been complicit!

    Charges might be based on who wrote the checks. If Huffman and Loughlin wrote checks off of an individual one as opposed to a joint one then it might be hard to charge their husbands even if they were on board.

     

    Looks as if Loughlin may have skipped town

    I'll be surprised if they face major career damage tbh. This is something you can PR, unlike a #MeToo scandal. It's absolutely something they should pay for, but career-wise I think Lori at least can recover. (And William H. Macy certainly will) For better or worse, owing to her years on TV she can work that circuit to make her case.

     

    Has Hallmark really not employed anyone with a spicier past than this? I find that hard to believe.

    Agreed. It's fairly easy to cry and say that "I just wanted what is best for my kids" on Dr. Phil or perhaps on an Oprah special.

     

    Aside from casting some people who might have been on Cinemax late at night Hallmark casting is fairly squeaky clean.

     

  7. Living in a community with a sizeable wealthy population this doesn't much surprise me. My mom ran for school board and we met a lot of parents who are 24/7 invested in their kids education, especially the mothers. They bankroll whatever they can. The mothers who don't have much money are just as obssesive too and use organizing to gain power. So far no one around here has been caught bribing schools, but they have the same sort of ambition as Huffman and Loughlin probably have.

     

    I understand wanting to best for your kids but being dishonest really does nothing to help then in the long run and cheats honest families out of opportunities.

  8. That is my tweet with the obituary. The service let out about an hour ago and a lot of actors who worked with him were there (MTS, Victoria Rowell, Shemar Moore, Peter Bergman, Amelia Heinle, etc) as well as some who didn't work with him. Kenny Lattimore sang a couple of gospel songs and there was a slide show with photos of Kristoff through the years. His father spoke and was absolutely devastated. He basically said he never thought he'd outlive his son.
