  1. Bravo's The Real Housewives of....

    NYC Updates... Luann was on Megan Kelly Today (hurl) and discussed rehab, her kids suing her (interesting, not quite what I figured it was) and turning things around: https://www.hollywoodreporter.com/video/i-have-new-life-luann-de-lesseps-opens-up-relapse-rehab-megyn-kelly-today-1134739 The NY Post's Page Six reports that Luann was dumped right before she went into rehab: https://pagesix.com/2018/08/14/luann-de-lesseps-was-dumped-right-before-her-rehab-stint/ Finally, Ramona was spotted making out with a 30 something in the Hamptons: https://pagesix.com/2018/08/14/ramona-singer-spotted-sloppy-kissing-a-young-hottie/

    NBC has never managed to helm a primetime soap. Perry King has that loveably bland quality that just say "should die by episode 5..."
  3. 'Frasier' Reboot Being Explored

    When the series ended (in what was one of my favourite series finales), Frasier had pursued Laura Linney's character to Chicago rather than taking a job in San Francisco, and I think Frasier teaching at a university would be a natural conclusion for his character. I think the only way to do another Frasier series is for the original supporting cast to not be in it because they belong to the old (perfect) series and I do not think you can come home again. Though I would love to see them in guest appearances. However, I absolutely agree that a Herculean supporting cast is required. Much as Frasier was a starring vehicle for Kelsey Grammer, it succeeded because it allowed the supporting cast to shine every single episode. Niles and Daphne's 'will they or won't they' storyline spanned years and was probably the most popular the show ever had. Personally, Peri Gilpin's Roz was my favourite. I love the original series so much, it plays so well in reruns as a timeless comedy, that I would be hesitant to see it revived...but like Murphy Brown, I would be excited to see it.

    Potomac Andy: I'm sorry about your dad. Karen: Me too. Me: Oh, Karen! Team Karen all day, everyday. I absolutely hate Ashley for the way she pursued Karen at the reunion. Even Gizelle and Robyn, who have few redeeming features, kept things reasonable with her (and in fact, I thought it was genuine of Gizelle to comfort Karen at the end of the episode). I want to see Karen and Ray unite and destroy Ashley and Michael - those two are just filthy trash. I am so glad Candy-Ass got in as many digs at Ashley as she did. The comment about Ashley sticking her forehead into everyone else's business was particularly well spiced. I agree about Andy - he is in too deep to be objective. Kevin Frazier or Wendy Williams would both do a much better job with the reunions. The women are too afraid of Andy and he's too engrossed in the drama to actually moderate.

    I think Pasadena didn't know what it wanted to be. The creator, Mike White, wrote a very dark show and it seemed much darker and less brash than most primetime soaps. It was on the wrong network at FOX - it was more suited to something like Showtime. It aired two weeks after 9/11 so was doomed from the start. I always enjoy Dana Delaney and Barbara Babcock played an emotionally distant and icy matriarch very well. Titans had all the elements of an Aaron Spelling prime time soap...and it was weighed down by the sheer number of cliches packed into the first 13 episodes. When you've managed to film Yasmine Bleeth run after Casper Van Dien at a beachside motel, in a marabou trimmed satin peignoir with matching heels, subsequently fall down a flight of stairs and lose the baby she's conceived with him despite being married to his father who died on their honeymoon an episode or two ago, you're doing an awful lot...maybe too much. NBC was also a total mismatch. It was the end of Aaron Spelling's career, and he didn't have a network holding deal, so this show was sort of like a shrieking eight headed hydra dying a death. That conception of the show could have been a hit.

    That is a very juicy read, particularly his views on 'the old man' Aaron Spelling and Tori.

    Apparently NYC is meant to start shooting in two weeks time despite Carol’s exit. That’s the #WordOnTheStreet (copyright that as$hole Gizelle)

    Dennis Sheilds, Bethenny’s on and off boyfriend, has been found dead in his Trump Tower condo of a suspected overdose. https://nypost.com/2018/08/10/bethenny-frankels-on-and-off-boyfriend-found-dead-in-trump-tower/

    Totally - plus Faye, as a decorator, could provide the peak into luxury that the rest of them, aside from LVP - can’t or don’t. BH is in big trouble - it’s been reheated leftovers for several seasons in a row - just like OC has been. OC is trying to turn things around but I am not yet convinced (though I greatly enjoyed the Mexico episode). NYC had its first filler episode last night - and it was superior to anything BH did the last few seasons. Clearly Ramona wanted some PR for her skincare line - I just wonder how her normal plastic surgeon, Dr. Sharon Geise, felt about her partnering with a different doctor. I don’t mind bitchy Lu - she was right about Ramona’s renovations - they had zero soul. Bethenny’s apartment is sterile and ready to sell, like all of her sleek former abodes - but she clearly views real estate as an investment. Carole - UGH, don’t let the door hit you on the way out. She is insufferable. However, a big no to Kenya’s contrived ass coming to NYC. She is as fake as Ramona’s eyelashes. Her low rentness is why I would cast her. She’d be like Taylor and Dana/Pam was. Hers is a story made for the RH franchise - the daughter of Aaron Spelling living in the Valley...it is tragicomic - it’s perfect for Bravo.

    In Beverly Hills news...Mauricio has been sued by a former client and the details of what Mauricio allegedly did are not good: https://theblast.com/kyle-richards-mauricio-umansky-malibu-mansion/
  11. New Soap Melange W/ Many Soap Alums

    It sounds low budget and ill conceived. I always wish Morgan Fairchild well, though, so perhaps it'll work.

  13. Bravo's The Real Housewives of....

    Tonight's finale of Potomac demonstrated that without Karen this show would be lifeless. Not only are Robyn, Gizelle, and Ashley utterly obsessed with her, they are incredibly jealous of her and need to feed off of her in order to be relevant because they have nothing going on in their lives. The lame prank of the Three Idiots dropping off a pizza at Karen's house in the middle of the night made absolutely no sense. Ashley's logic, particularly, made no sense. If someone was randomly ringing my doorbell in the middle of the night I wouldn't be answering the door - I'd be calling the cops to say someone had scaled my gate. No surprise that Robyn's house flip remains a flop. Look whose in charge. Karen took down Ashley, and Ray took down Michael, beautifully at Candy-Ass's engagement party (also, wasn't it a bit preposterous that we had to endure an engagement party when all Candy-Ass has talked about is her damn wedding?). Ashley and Michael really don't know who they're trying to tangle with and the Hugers will decimate them systematically with stylish shade and effortless put downs. Karen let Ashley know exactly what she thinks of her opinion and she handled Michael like a pro. Michael's ridiculous (and rude) interjection while Ray was speaking to another party guest was amateurish and stupid.

    The way Karen enunciates "I don't give a f*ck what you say" gives me life. She says it with such conviction I am shaken at my core.
  15. All Four Soaps Threaten Daytime Emmy Boycott

    F*ck NATAS. Good for the soaps to stand in solidarity.
