  1. Congrats are in order for our favorite, self-entitled, tantrum-throwing diva(-wannabe), Constance Wu.  Her wish has been granted; her show has been cancelled.  (Enjoy life in the theater, Connie Baby!)

      No worries @Khan, I completely understand.  It's healthy to be objective about your loved ones. I'd be lying if I said these reports of bad behavior were surprising. Money and fame didn't create any of this.

      Constance and Amanda SeaIes are two of my very best college friends, and it sort of amazes me how over the past year they've both hit meteoric career highs *and* been flamed for bad bts behavior. You love your friends and pray that they never take blessings for granted.

  3. Tamron Hall dressed up as Dominique Devereaux on her show today.

  4. Finally going to college for the first time at age 28. I start classes in January. I'm so excited that I just had to tell somebody. 😁

  5. Lately, I've been getting ads that appear on top of posts, literally blocking out people's words. Even if I click on the ad (which I hate to do) or attempt to close it, I can't get rid of it to see what the poster was saying. This is egregious. Anyone else having this problem?

  6. The top third of the board has blown up in size for me, but that won't stop me from wishing everyone a Merry Christmas.

      Merry Christmas to all! And yes, these ads are crazy.

  7. The success of Michael B. Jordan always reminds me of how pissed off I was by the way AMC treated the character of Reggie. Yes, I'm still holding that grudge.

      A friend just shared an article on FB about him and CB playing Reggie, and MBJ is quoted about playing an effing stereotype on a soap opera. I don't recall... were we ever introduced to any biological relatives of Reggie? I don't think so. A missed opportunity to flesh out the character and employ more black actors.

  8. A beautifully made Google Doodle for Mister Rogers. It makes you cry. (I wish they'd included Lady Elaine Fairchild though).

      I woke up ungodly early yesterday and watched an episode heavily featuring Lady Elaine. I'm always so tickled by her character and wonder where Mr. Rogers drew inspiration. I don't want to put my own stuff upon it, but with all love, I'm like, "Who was the cranky old d#%! who inspired her??" 😂

  9. RIP Bill Daily. So many memories of Bob Newhart Show reruns on TV Land and Nick at Nite. A tough week.

      I also enjoyed him in a charming little syndicated sitcom called Starting From Scratch that aired on Saturday afternoons. Connie Stevens played his ex.

       

      I was talking to an older actor friend in D.C. You all may recall how Bill Daily would often place his hands on his chest and sort of pat himself down. Well among some D.C. actors, that move is aptly known as doing a "Bill Daily".  Actors would playfully challenge themselves and others to working a "Bill Daily" into a performance.

  10. Guys. My mom probably has dementia.

     

    I am so depressed right now. Why the hell is this happening. I just want her mind back. I want my mom back. Not someone I cannot even talk to. Not someone who is so paranoid that they put shoes in the sink and cannot barely remember her own daughter's name. She called me "Sarah" yesterday. My name is Selena. I want my mom back goddamnit.

      I am so sorry Selena. We are coping with this with my grandfather. It's hard when his behaviour is utterly recognizable but we're all grateful for the flashes of clarity when he's his usual self. Give your mom all the love and support you can, it's scarier for them than it is for us. <3

  12. Why are men so goddamn flaky!

    1. SFK

      SFK

      I've certainly flaked and been flaked on, but is this ghosting business a generational thing? I think there are a lot of insecure people who come on super sweet and strong and once they've piqued your interest and won your approval, the drug wears off and they need their next fix.

  14. Just missing people like Julia Barr and Debbi Morgan on my screen on a daily basis. Sigh. I'm even pining for Bobbie Eakes' early scheming KWAK for some reason.

      Rewatching Julia Barr's work when Laura died inspired me to start the thread about good acting. I was just talking about her today, my castmate did production work on AMC in the eighties. I have not even begun to ask her the many millions of questions...

      I did a play with JB's daughter many years ago and met JB and her husband (I had met her a couple of times before at fan events). A very lovely, composed lady.

  15. For all of you old WoST fans, I purchased a vinyl record that was once posted on the site and plan to put the various themes on YT in the next week. Keep an eye out (especially for that funky arrangement of the Ryan's Hope theme!).

  16. There's something so cozy about watching old soap episodes while a thunderstorm rages outside... ❤️

  17. Original GLOW girl the legendary Mt. Fiji has passed away. RIP.

  18. Happy New Year, everyone. May 2018 be the year we need, not the one we fear.

  19. It's 1am and I'm watching a classic soap on the teevee, not YouTube.  God is good.  More please.

      Last night I was on here thinking about how much my life has changed since I joined.  Like, what was I doing, or really, NOT doing that I had so much time to post!?  Of course, if AMC and OLTL were still on, I'm sure I'd still find a way...

  25. I (very bitterly) get annoyed by cutesy wedding hashtags on social media, but if I ever married (I know...), I'm going with #thewedding as a homage to Dynasty.
