    I was just such a fan of hers and over the years her griping has started to bother me.  I don't remember KSJ or Shemar Moore or many black actors/actresses complaining about how they were treated on Y&R.  Something just comes across as a trouble maker.  Crystal Khalil (SP wrong I'm sure).  Mishael Morgan.  Whoever played Olivia.  And linking your former working relationship to Black Lives Matter is just weird to me when she had such success.  She was invited back for the KSJ memorial, and she's worked since Y&R.  Why is she so against Y&R


    Someone will say this is white privilege, and I am white, but a gay male.  But I feel like VR could be the EP, Head Writer, Director, and own the show and she still wouldn't be happy.  

    First off not everyone handles things the same. Some black actors and actresses will just refrain from saying anything because they want to work. Black people are always called troublemakers if they complain about anything. You being gay is not relevant here, but being white still comes in ahead of that. Your privilege is showing in your posts.

    I just read the VR article.  Honestly I'm so tired of hearing her.  It's old now and she just doesn't stop.  If mouthy whiny complaining white women can be called "Karen" then she's a Karen. 

    It's not like she's running around threatening to call the police on people for nothing or blocking people from going into their apartment buildings or coughing on people because they don't want to follow social distancing rule. She has real complaints.

    I give Steven Bochco credit for trying to rectify that situation with his short-lived "City of Angels," which was the first network TV drama series to feature a predominantly Black cast (Blair Underwood, Vivica A. Fox, etc.).  But, man, the writing for that show, like most of Bochco's post-"NYPD Blue" shows, was so anemic.

    I remember City of Angels because it seemed like it had potential. About five years before that CBS had aired another attempt at a  drama with a black cast with Under One Roof starring James Earl Jones. It lasted six episodes, but Jones managed to get an Emmy nomination for Best Supporting Actor in a Drama Series.

  4. There is also the fact that Tyler had an established audience from years of doing plays that were directly marketed to a black audience that mainstream writers and producers do not tap into for the most part. I say the most part because start up networks like FOX, UPN and WB had no problem flooding their schedules with comedies that appealed to urban audiences, but not any drama series.

    I'd love for someone from Sony to tell me -- to my face -- what they thought was so "outdated" about scenes like these.  Everything about the scenes -- the acting, the directing, the set, the lighting and music -- was PERFECT.  It was perfect then, and even moreso now.

    It probably was seen as outdated by them because of the need to make daytime more like primetime.

  6. VCR recordings negatively effecting the ratings is something that I never considered. It makes a lot of sense, though. Soap Net was an attempt to accommodate viewers who worked in the daytime, but it came along too late. Pre-internet the networks would had to have used paper surveys among VCR surveys to collect data and that would have been tedious, but probably worth the effort.

  7. This is a hard one. I'm trying to think of soap stars who can sing, but the only ones I can think of wouldn't necessarily fit the parts. These are some people I thought of.


    Buddy - Wally Kurth (I could see him being able to convey Buddy's subtle desperation)

    Solange - Robin Strasser (Ah Paris! is perfect for an actress like her)

    Stella - Kim Zimmer

    I've seen some 'liberal' pundits saying this is a losing strategy for Trump to focus on Obama, but much of his base operates on racism and hate, and many on the left who are still pining for Bernie also operate on racism. Sadly the pivot to making it all about Obama will help maintain the turnout the GOP had from 2010-2016. 

    It might help him turn out his base, but it will also insure that black voters turn up to vote. To get reelected Trump needs lower turnout among Democratic base groups, particularly black voters because they can make the difference in Michigan, Pennsylvania and Wisconsin.

  9. It's confusing to understand how residuals work because there seem to be various ways that they are distributed. From what I've read residuals decline each time the show completes a run in syndication. https://www.backstage.com/magazine/article/calculating-sag-residuals-17706/

    For television shows, SAG residuals are calculated using a formula that utilizes the number of runs and percentage of minimum rate of compensation for the actor. For example, for reruns in syndication, the actor is paid 40 percent of the applicable minimum rate for the first rerun program, dropping to 30 percent for the second rerun, 25 percent for the third rerun, and so on until it reaches 5 percent for the 12th rerun and beyond. There are also residuals for foreign telecasts of the program; these are arrived at using an entirely different formula based upon the distributor's foreign gross.


    Some shows don't run in syndication all the time, so it's possible for some actors to not exhaust to 5% for a long time.



  10. Kellyanne Conway's biggest gripe is not getting accolades for being the first woman to manage a winning presidential campaign. She is a career political operative and Republican political operatives only care about advancement. She made it to the Oval Office and if Trump disrespects her family that's just something that she will accept to maintain her position.

  11. Once Biden asked the National Archives to release any complaint that Reade made she backtracked and said that she didn't make a complaint of sexual assault in her 1993 complaint, so she is basically confirming that there is nothing there. She also claims that she lost her copy of the complaint.


    It's also been revealed that she lied about taking acting lessons from Robert Reed. Her story is that he was a retired actor and helped her at 18, but the problem with that is that he never retired and worked right up until he died (she was 18 long before he passed away).
