  1. 😆 She's my age. My parents said that I was absolutely obsessed with Barbara Mandrell and The Mandrell Sisters when I was little. I would sit right in front of the TV and be dead silent for the entire show, just staring. I especially loved the flashbacks to the younger versions of themselves.
  2. Robin said she left Louise a message once she arrived in Burbank. I think Robin was going to accept the offer with or without Louise's blessing and figured it was best not to reach out at all at the risk of looking disingenuous had Louise not given her said blessing. I just find it extremely suspicious that Louise was given such short notice to return. There are so many people involved on a television show, so many working parts, planning, and organizing going on behind the scenes. I can absolutely see someone being offered a last minute recast position but giving they're vet less than a week notice seems unusual. Also, you know damn well Robin would see red had she been unemployed and they approached another actress to play Dorian. It was different when they hired Elaine because Robin was happily out of Rauch's orbit and doing quite well in primetime out on the coast. This whole scenario never sat right with me only because I distinctly remember the interview where Robin talks about how she and Louise promised (even if jokingly) not to accept one another's parts. I dunno, I'd be interested to hear Louise's take, maybe she couldn't give a damn.
  3. Just think, Charlene's daughter Olivia turned thirty on the first. ("The first day of the last decade of the twentieth century.")
  4. When I found out my ex shared a birthday with AMC, I was certain I'd found the one. However, we were also cancelled.

    1. All My Shadows

      All My Shadows

      And for that, your ex is officially a Friday Ho. @Cheap21, how much would you charge for a special edition of 50th Anniversary Hos?

      I totally forgot about the Friday hoes! Damn, we used cut the [!@#$%^&*] up on this board... young, unemployed, all the time in the world to live post and continue to post for hours. 

  5. 😂 Totally. Lots of familiar faces in the cast to hold the interest of viewers who never watched the show.
  6. That's wonderful news. I really admire Retro's dedication to TD, a classic soap and an "obscure" one at that. I wish other outlets would follow suit.
  7. Although they weren't in the same class, Ms. Payton-Wright and Erika Slezak were at RADA for some shared years. I'd love to watch the beginning of the Addie storyline, I was in middle school and we weren't taping much as my mother could watch at her desk. My mother maintained that the Addie/Blair/Dorian dynamic was particularly gripping in the beginning with Mia Korf and Elaine Princi.
  8. @DeliaIrisFan So nice to see you posting again!
  9. Was George gone before Robin joined the show? I know Robin had scenes with Jacquie, just wondering if there was any point where they tried to strike Another World gold. The Dorian and Tony relationship seemed to be a rich one but I think it was Pinkerton who had the most involvement with that storyline.
  10. Yes. I particularly appreciate the way the writers crafted Roseanne's job journey, introducing various locales and vivid new characters. Somehow, it never felt hokey to me, nor desperate ("shaking things up"/"keeping things fresh" for the new season), it all felt pretty organic. Add me to the chorus re: Jackie and Darlene's blow-up. I love how the writers are exploring family dynamics after the loss of a loved one, particularly how Jackie and Darlene who have always been so close (I don't recall them arguing even once in the original series) are now at odds.
  11. I assume the stunt casting of glamorous Lola Falana as Charity Blake was Capitol's answer to DC/DD, at least in terms of appearances. Did SB have any black characters in front burner storylines?
  12. Thank you. This was a good episode for the holiday season.
  13. I foolishly flipped to DOOL and missed the end of the episode, did they do a title card celebrating his anniversary? I agree, PB did lovely work in the scene about the baby's heart being donated, I wonder if that was an Emmy year for him. That scene where Jack hurls the chair out of the window always gets me, could have spawned a whole storyline about second degree murder. *SPLAT!*
  14. Indeed it is, I picked a good day to tune in. I'm enjoying the many flashbacks. I was surprised to see Marla Adams in the opening titles. Has she been there for long?
  15. "Aspen, though, does have an identical twin — Orlando, 16." 😕 What the Reva and Dolly the Clone is going on with that? That must be so weird for one twin to look back at himself and for the other to look into his future.
  16. 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.
  17. 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. 💖
  18. "We're still here #; )" Willona Woods: So is the garbage. 🤷🏽‍♂️
  19. Damn, TMZ already has a "Remembering 'Days of Our Lives' cast" photo scrawl up.
  20. 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.
  21. @Fevuh AMC's Erica had a Donna Salyers Fabulous Fur throw (lynx) on her sofa in her penthouse. It got a shoutout in SOD. A favorite gift to give, especially for my loved ones who aren't interested in acquiring more *STUFF*... I usually create a sampler of various flavors: https://popcornqueens.com/product-category/popcorn/
  22. "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.
  23. 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.
