    I used to think it had something to do with diabetes! (My sister was a diabetic, and it reminded me of the snake coiling around the branch on the charm of her medical alert bracelet.)

    To this day I'm pretty sure I have no idea who the [!@#$%^&*] Covina actually was on AMC. They used to mention her constantly and I was like, 'who??'

     

    Corvina got on my damn nerves. Here's an episode I uploaded featuring that ridiculous note inside the leopard scheme that she and Kendall cooked up.

     

  2. I'm curious, what are the names of the black mother and biracial daughter on SB that Patrick mentions?

     

    I loathed OLTL's Rachel's descent into addiction, and as the child of a black parent and a white parent myself, it was not lost on me that the character literally grew darker before our eyes with recasts as she fell further and further apart. Optics!

     

    It's egregious when a show recasts black characters with no regard to complexion. Alimi Ballard to Jason Olive!? Monti Sharp to Terrell Tilford!? You've essentially rewritten the character's history. I'm not sure that daytime has touched upon colorism since Carla Gray.

  3. When I was little, I thought the YR logo was just some random, sexy, modern design, I did not get that it was a Y and an R.

     

    I thought Susan Lucci was Jewish.

     

    I thought the actors could hear us talking at home and they just ignored us like live theatre.

     

    Not unlike my recent Nedra Volz revelation, there were quite a few actors' names I mispronounced for years, I'm sure there are plenty that I'm still getting wrong. The only time you really heard soap actors names aloud was on awards shows.

     

    One of my college best friends and I often joke about her aha moment watching ATWT as a kid: "Ohhh, as the WORLD turns..." I'm always like, "WTF were you thinking up to that point!? I can't even wrap my brain around what you were missing. "

    Geez seeing that opening again gets me emotional - it's just perfect, the shots they used, the balance in tone, how they show all aspects of soap, the ending shot...

     

    It really is perfect and I love that shot of Harley groovin'. Tangie sipping her champers is lovely enough, Reva, meh... no one shone in that final spot like Harley.

     

    An article written about this opening makes mention of the fact that the original intent was to focus on the main players with many more generic shots (pearls, flowers, et cetera). I remember when it became so bloated with cast members that there was a. day and b. day, the cast split 50/50. Like with every other soap opening, with the new additions came dips in quality. There were clips that were too short and were awkwardly paused and rewound (like Rock Hudson in Dynasty's opening titles).

     

    Another article mentioned that if you look closely you'll see that the opening mimics how a real lighthouse works. I didn't understand what they were getting at until I recently watched a documentary on Maryland lighthouses and saw the Fresnel lenses:

    I remember her 1996 return there was a rewrite that she left because John's secretary made Dina believe John was cheating on Dina with the secretary.

     

    Yes, Audrey North played by Constance Towers pre-GH.  I remember her sobby confession and John telling her to get out of his sight. Not sure that she did more than that one episode.

  6. Messing with my mind how they have both Diane and Vanessa in red, and how SLG and AS both played Donna on AW.

    I was kind of skipping around the episode so I thought there was an internal dual temp recast going on.

    I don't remember the circumstances of MK's absence, but an op-ed in SOD suggested that GL was foolish not to jump on the chance to rehire AS as Vanessa. My memory is a little foggy, but I'm assuming this was after AW was cancelled.

    I thought so. 

     

    I wonder if her stint as Vanessa is what led to P&G wanting to keep Anna under their umbrella and later cast her for Donna. 

     

    Anna Stuart excels at the stiff, upper crest socialite. 

     

    Anna read for Felicia and AW ended up creating Donna for her so she was certainly on P&G's radar.

    I don’t often say this about anyone, but Beverlee’s hairstyles definitely got more flattering in the 80’s...

     

    I have some episodes from this era, and I assumed she was wearing a wig as they were particularly popular in the seventies. But as a poster at WoST convinced me years ago, this was her natural hair (adding that Beverlee was a Leo, of course she had great hair). What I want to know is how bloody long did she have to sit in the chair having her hair set like that!? The styles certainly got simpler on GL. Jay Hammer said Beverlee had two alarm clocks: one on the bureau, one in the bathroom. She'd wrap her hair in an Hermès scarf and head to the studio.

    The second Taylor, though, was an EXCELLENT performer.    She just was not much like the original. 

     

    Oof, I could not STAND second Taylor.

     

    I haven't uploaded to YouTube in forever, but I'm reminded that I have an episode where Taylor and Noah have a pretty hot love scene.

     

    Ingrid was in Carlito's Way which was covered in SOD. I always assumed she left AMC to pursue her film career. She was really good at playing a nasty princess (in a way that didn't make my teeth itch like her replacement). When Taylor figured out that Lucas was Terrence's father, it drove me nuts the way she kept gleefully reminding Terrence that he was, "Lucas Barnes' *bastard* son!"

  10. That article had me crying blood.

    They should have just kept the inflatable doll stuff to themselves and merely said that they're taking every precaution. Then at a later date drop the "nifty trivia"... "Hey B&Bliebers, wanna know what made those steamy love scenes so authentic during a pandemic??" Will we be paying any attention to what these characters are saying or be entirely preoccupied trying to catch the magician's tricks?

     

    I have no idea where B&B left off, but do you loyal viewers think a 3-minute recap will do? Is it necessary to re-air a week of episodes? Would the show benefit from fast-forwarding a little?

  11. I follow Victoria Wyndham on Instagram, I really enjoy her posts and I'm so happy that she's living her best life in Connecticut with her horses and dogs and birds on a lovely piece of property. Her artwork speaks to me, we share the same tastes.
