  1. Licensed music and daytime soap operas

    Another Whitney-Jermaine duet was licensed by Another World. "If You Say My Eyes are Beautiful" was Cass & Kathleen's theme.
  2. Soap Stars - Where are they now?

    Diego Serrano (ex-Tomas Rivera, AW) was on HBO's Insecure last night, playing a suitor of lead character Issa.

    I bought Kathleen Layman as a cop from the get-go but I always felt like Sally Spencer was playing dress-up. It wasn't just the way Spencer played MJ, the writers also had a hand in weakening the character. As with Carmen Duncan's Iris, I pretty much pretended the actress and her predecessor were playing completely different roles.

    Vaughan hasn't appeared on Queen Sugar this season.

    I use a five-year-old iMac with Chrome or a two-year-old iPad with Safari to access this site and have no problem at all with either one. (And I love the videos, please keep them coming.) I just tried it with my four-year-old iPhone, and yes, the heavy video threads are a disaster -- but I wouldn't expect any different.

    IMO, 1980, 81 82 and much of 83 are better left forgotten in the annals of Another World, with the exception of a handful of performances and stories.

    Yeah, I think 54-year-old James Hyde looks pretty amazing, so does Dana Sparks at 55.

    Ron's first script is tomorrow, that was Dena's mistake.

    Yeah, I hope Ron C. redirects Sonny's character back into Freddie's comfort zone as an actor, because the last few months of performances have been embarrassingly bad. It's obvious now that Freddie has very limited range and if they're going to keep him around -- which they must in order to effect a certain reunion -- they have to reconsider Sonny's arc.
  10. I always assumed Lemay's late '80s story bible was responsible for the introduction of Olivia Matthews, the return of Russ (in limited capacity) and the increased use of Aunt Liz. Rumor was that he also wanted to bring back Pat, but Donna Swajeski didn't follow that thread.

    I don't think either woman played the game of attending industry events, schmoozing with stars and execs from other shows and networks, and granting endless interviews to the soap press. They did their work and they went home. That's often misinterpreted as "putting on airs" and could very well have been held against them. It broke my heart that she didn't return to AW, but I think she made the right choice in the end -- the writing on GL during her reign was, for the most part, leagues better than AW's. I tuned in to GL as much as I could to see her, but that unfortunately wasn't very often. I thought she was spectacular as Alex, though, just as she had been as Iris.

    NBC was reportedly unhappy that Rachel and Carl drew more fan mail than any other couple on the show, interpreting it as a sign that AW's viewers were old, mostly holdovers from the AW glory days, and that there was little to no potential to grow the audience as long as that was the case. They got rid of Charles Keating in an attempt to reposition the show, and I'm sure they would have loved to dump Vicky Wyndham as well, but they didn't think the little audience they had left would stand for it.
  13. Soap Stars - Where are they now?

    Molly Burnett (Melanie, DAYS) has a recurring role on Queen of the South this season.
  14. Soap Stars - Where are they now?

    Jennifer Landon (Gwen-ATWT, Hillary-DAYS) showed up on Animal Kingdom this week, in what looks like a recurring role.

    Stephen Schnetzer was also in the most recent episode of Showtime's Billions. Glad he's still working a lot.
