  1. What a wonderful tribute to Donna Messina on yesterday's show. Naming Sonny and Carly's baby after her was a really nice touch. And I enjoyed listening to Sonny's monologue. He was quite obviously talking about the real life Donna Messina, even as he was ostensibly describing a person from the old Bensonhurst neighborhood. Great job by Maurice Bernard.

  3. I just saw DAYS for the first time in years. It seems obvious that Mimi is the mother of Lucas' baby, not Bonnie. I just googled Farah Fath and saw that she is coming back for a few episodes. That should lead to some interesting scenes between Chloe and Mimi, and maybe some interesting recollections of their up and down history together. Am I correct in the belief that the surrogate who carried Mimi and Phillip's accidentally created by IVF baby has full custody and parental rights? Wasn't it a boy? I wonder if baby Bonnie (or whatever her real name is) will get to see her brother, assuming Mimi is indeed the mom.
  4. This storyline involving the adoption of Wiley is so disgusting. Brad and Lucas have proven that they are unfit to be adoptive parents. They don't care that the mother wants her child back, or that she did so within the agreed upon timeframe for her to back out of the adoption. And shame on GH for calling her the birth mother before the baby was born and then before the adoption was finalized. She wasn't the birth mother, she was the mom. And as far as I am concerned she still is, since Julian in some way coerced her. I realize that the actual baby died, and this is Nelle's baby, but most of the characters don't know that. So they are still deserving of judgment for their reprehensible actions. Shame on Alexis for showing contempt for a mother's love, and trying to involuntarily terminate her parental rights, even after she lost her own daughter to a coerced adoption. And shame on the judge for not demanding that the mother appear in court so he could speak to her directly and attempt to confirm that she was not coerced.
  5. I am absolutely sickened by today's episode of GH. Calling a pregnant woman a birth mother before the baby is born and the papers are signed is wrong. Lucas and Brad are not adoptive parents yet--they are prospective adoptive parents. And the woman whose baby they hope to adopt is not a birth mother--she is an expectant mother. Finally, let me just say how tired I am of hearing about how scared Lucas and Brad are that the expectant mother may change her mind. And I am tired of hearing how they are at her mercy and there is no "protection" for them. Let's be clear: they are not entitled to this woman's baby. And if she changes her mind, and decides to parent, they have absolutely no complaint with her. That is her right, legally and morally. Adoption plans failing to materialize is a part of the adoption process, and anyone who doesn't understand that--and respect that--has no business being an adoptive parent.
  6. I liked Sam and Maxie's friendship on GH. They have since left one another's orbit, but I always enjoyed them together. Speaking of female friendships on soaps, I just had a funny memory. Does anyone remember the old Turtle-Run board? There was a poster there named Phoenix. I remember a thread when someone asked "would anyone mind if Jen and Greta became friends?" Phoenix replied "I wouldn't mind if Jen and Greta became more than just friends."
  7. I don't know if Ken Corday still says this, but he used to say all the time: "Stay tuned." And here is another one that we can thank KC for: "DAYS has fired Matt Ashford again."
  8. I think I just figured out who kidnapped Spencer. I think it was Sam. She is trying to lure Sonny to the place she has him stashed so that she can kill him. I am not on these boards too much so I am not sure if anyone else has already hypothesized that. Forgive me if I am repeating what others have already said.
  9. I would love for Matt Ashford to come back as Jack. And I would enjoy seeing RC write for him. Maybe we would finally have a writer who was excited about the character, instead of HWs who are writing him badly because they are only writing for him at all because KC ordered them to.
  10. Marlena never interacted with Jack, Harper or Angelica before she was taken by Orpheus. The Deverauxs came right as Marlena, Bo and Hope were all leaving. They may have briefly been there in the final days before Bo&Hope sailed off into the sunset. Joseph Adams' Jack was the first to arrive. Genie Francis arrived as Diana Colville at about the same time. Angelica's words today implied that she had been in the Brady Pub back in the day. That was not the case, since it wasn't established until 1992, after she had already left Salem. I am surprised that Dena would make that mistake, since she has been with DAYS for so long. Then again, Dena has always been a terrible writer. Her material in 2003 remains the worst stuff I have ever seen on daytime. And she has never seemed to be too concerned with the show's history--at least not the parts that she didn't like to begin with or didn't care about.
  11. Well Ron C. just made a mistake today. Angelica said that she was back in the Brady Pub again. Wrong. Angelica was presumed dead and left Salem in early 1990, I believe in March. In January 1991 she made a brief appearance outside of Salem. The Brady Pub was established in the Summer of 1992. Before that it was the Brady Fish Market. I actually think RC would have written well for Jack Deveraux if he had been given the opportunity back in the day. Sadly, it's too late now.
  12. I enjoyed Obrecht's numbers in 2014 and 2015. It seems that the current writing team did not. They have kept her from performing for the last two Nurses Balls, and seem to think that the audience wants to see her denied the right to be on stage. I was hoping that last year was an aberration, but I guess this is the new normal. Too bad. I find her performances to be very amusing.
  13. If Matthew Ashford was still on the show I would be screaming for it. Of course, KC wouldn't bother doing it for the same reason that he fired Matt so many times to begin with: to him Jack Deveraux was just "that guy Jennifer Horton married." He totally forgot how huge a star MA was, completely independent of Missy Reeves. In fact, Jack was the dominant character in the pairing during their supercouple heyday. I would love to see Jack and Angelica Deveraux interacting again, along with scenes that included Justin, Adrienne, and Alexander.
  14. Deanna Wright was definitely the best Kay, IMO. She was to Passions what Sami Brady was to DAYS. She was definitely fierce, but like Sami she could show you her vulnerability. And I still remember when Charity was trapped in hell and Kay realized that she had to draw the line at some point so she finally went to the closet and tried to pull Charity out. I thought Taylor Anne Mountz was kind of one-note but she did have her fans. She also had good chemistry with Lena Cardwell, the first Simone (who should never have been fired IMO). I know people like to rag on Heidi Mueller but I thought she did well with what the part had evolved into. She made Kay into more of an adult than she had previously been. She actually showed Kay dealing with the difficulties of life while working in the cannery. And she made Kay and Miguel remotely believable, even if it was still a stretch. Gina Marie May is the often-forgotten temporary replacement when TAM abruptly left the show. She wasn't too memorable but she did have one good scene. It was a rare Kay/Theresa scene. I finally found it on youtube. There was very little interaction between them over the years, even though Maria was their shared family. There should have been more scenes with them. It is interesting to imagine this scene if it had been played by TAM, who had left 8 days earlier.
  15. Are you serious? And they didn't even give her time to get preggs again to save her job....LOL ROTF! So true! Yes, I am serious. I am pretty sure that this is what she said. Maybe she meant a biological child that she herself carried.
  16. Did I just hear Lulu say that this embryo is her one chance to have a child that is biologically hers? Isn't Rocco her biological child?
  17. If DAYS hadn't screwed Matt Ashford over, so many times, Jack Deveraux could still be on the show right now. And I would love to see a reunion with Jack and Angelica. Of course, they could bring JE/Angelica back without MA/Jack there. She has ties to Justin and Adrienne. And I am sure the show would just act like Jack was never that important to her story. That's what they kind of did in 2006 when they fired MA and got rid of Jack right after the long-awaited return of Steve and Kayla--ironically, a return that had been pushed for by J&J/Jack fans for years.
  18. Ashley Wagner got ridiculously low scores. She completely blew away that free skate. She wouldn't have won a medal, but she certainly shouldn't have finished any lower than 5th. I'm glad that she called the judges out on the absurdity of her scores. I hope the matter gets some coverage, because the scoring system is broke and the judges cannot be completely trusted. I am remembering the 2002 Olympics and a Canadian ice dancing team that lost out to a Russian team, in spite of a clearly superior performance.
  19. I don't know if this was mentioned (I tried to read all the replies, but it was a lot to read and I might have missed a few comments), but in 1989 Rhonda Aldrich was a temporary replacement for Mary Beth Evans as Kayla on DAYS. She was absolutely awful. MBE was pregnant and Aldrich was there for about a week, I think. Also in 1989, Shelley Morgan Taylor did a few episodes as Angelica Deveraux, Jack's stepmother, after Jane Elliot had left the role, but before Judith Chapman had arrived to take over.
