    I don't see why FS should have to struggle with his weight.  If he tends to be heavier, then let himself be heavier.  This industry is too damn obsessed with everyone being a size-0 or having a 12-pack, it's no wonder so many actors end up with drug problems and/or eating disorders.

     

    I see no reason why anyone should have an issue with his weight, this is a serial, not pornography, and even if it were pornography, "There's a porn for that." I think being an awful actor delivering awful scripts is what's truly egregious in this industry, I don't care about anyone's body type. Look at the UK soaps, I'd rather be taken by good storytelling and good acting than being preoccupied by an actor's looks.

    Did you really post that? You don't know me and for you to post this is ignorant. I had a family member die from substance abuse. So it's real for me. I'm sure Ron won't do it justice.

     

    If this show actually wrote something worth commenting about instead of the same sh!t writing...I might have more to comment then just how hot Casey Moss or Chandler Massey are.....

    Its the same awful characters and stories. Nothing has changed. We missed all the beats with Will supposedly killing Adrienne and everybody's reaction. It's awful lazy writing. 

     

    I really did post that, and no, I don't know you beyond your posts here on SON, we all know you're hornier than the Boston Pops, but what's ignorant and irresponsible is professing the "hotness" of an addict. I am truly sorry for your loss, I lost my maternal and paternal grandfathers to alcoholism, and full disclosure, my brother and I have struggled with our bloodline. It's real for me too, your reaction just hit a nerve.

     

    No hate Soapsuds, I enjoy you and our mutual love for classic T.V. 💖

    Robert Scott Wilson remains atrocious as an actor. Lord. I'm so embarrassed.

     

    I was cringing with one eye open, but was ready to give him a pass when he first woke up, assuming it was all an OTT nightmare. But when it was established that these were in fact flashbacks, I could hardly look at the screen. DOOL, don't make this man break down and cry. 

     

    Meanwhile, eff the police looking at me sideways given my past, if I find my sister unconscious, I am calling 911 and pounding on her chest until the paramedics arrive.

    I was thinking about all the times I laughed out loud watching soaps, and I was very rarely amused by the characters written as broad, yuk-yuk-waka-waka-waka types. The very best actors—the Beverlee McKinseys, the Susan Flannerys, the Robin Mattsons, the Victoria Rowells—could make me double over with laughter with just a cutting line reading in an otherwise dramatic scene. 
     

    But I admit to having enjoyed obviously “comical” characters like Vivian/Ivan or early Susan (at times) on DAYS

     

    What are some scenes/characters/shows that (intentionally) made you LOL?Dorothy Lyman’s Opal on AMC was a kick...I only knew Jill Larson’s version growing up:
     

     

     

    "I just thought that you wouldn't want something that would rub off on the pillowcase. That could be very embarrassing on the first date." 😎😎😎

     

     

    @DRW50 brought this other gem from Opal to my attention.

    But her book may be closest to the true story as we'll ever know it.

     

    I watched Robyn's Dateline interview a few hours ago, and I agree.  Their friendship was long and intimate and I have a feeling Robyn knew Whitney at her most authentic self.

    Has anyone read any of Harding Lemay's plays?  I've read a few, and they seem very much like his work on AW.  Families with lots of conflict.  And nobody is really a total good guy (or girl).  All the characters have flaws that influence their actions.   

     

    Yes, I own a couple of them, tucked away somewhere. I haven't read them in over a decade, but I kind of remember the one that starred Constance Ford and Beverlee McKinsey. Lemay was self-published, the plays are probably still available to order. I got mine through Barnes and Noble where my significant other was working at the time.

    I came across this great behind the scenes photo from the early days. I don't know who the other actors are with Ellen Holly (Carla).

    I THINK the guy in the suit is Jack Crowder/Thalmus Rasulala, who played Lt. Jack Neal; and the other guy is Peter De Anda, who played Dr. Price Trainor.

     

     

    Khan is correct. I'll always fondly remember Mr. Rasulala as Rog and Dee's slippery daddy on What's Happening!! and James' shady childhood friend on Good Times.

    At the risk of having replies from one of the most annoying members of these boards ever - Kelly Ripa told a funny AMC-related Chris Goutman story on Live this morning.

     

     

     

    That's a very cute story, thanks for sharing.

    I work from home so when I have the TV on:

    9:00 Kelly and Ryan 

    10:00 Hoda and Jenna or whoever is guest hosting because they were barely ever on together 

    11:00 the news or Price is Right, sometimes flip to The View

    12:00 the news

    12:30 used to be Y&R but I watch what match is on The Tennis Channel now

    1:00 Tamron Hall, flip to B&B about 10 minutes a week for laughs

    2:00 Kelly Clarkson 

    3:00 Ellen 

    4:00 the news and flip back and forth to Dr. Phil

    5:00 the news 

     

    I’m DC so it’s a lot of news unless The Orange pops up and that’s when I change the channel....no desire to hear him or see his face.

     

    I'm D.C. too (North Bethesda) and I don't see why FOX5 felt the need to add yet another hour of news at 4pm. Still getting used to my Judge Judy being moved to 3pm. 😜


  10. Anna Stuart is a hoot in that episode posted upthread, she nails icy snob. 

     

    Poor Brent, Linda is always in his light, I didn't watch AW as a kid in the '80s, was this a perpetual issue for him? I hope not. Then again, Linda is also in Petronia's light, so perhaps it's not so much a height issue. I saw Petronia in Macbeth at Michael Kahn's Shakespeare Theatre here in D.C. a couple of years ago... ever radiant and commanding. My friend was in the cast and I tried my best to impart that they had a legend in their midst. I felt the same way when Joan Van Ark and Jean Le Clerc were down here doing Camino Real. My friends didn't know them from Adam and sadly sort of dismissed them as the eccentric soapy kooks in the cast who'd had too much work done.
