Yeah, I can't imagine Frank having the onions to make a decision without running it through Frons. The only possible person it could be on OLTL would be Spencer. All the other terminations have attracted to much attention and fan backlash. I thought it might be Ted King, but oppos, wrong coast.

I don't know if this makes a difference but REG's wasn't fired. Her contract expired because they were unable to come to terms.

I wonder if Frons actually micro-manages the soaps the way people claim he does. Afterall, he is the President of ABC and Disney daytime programming. He has a lot of ground to cover. Maybe something or someone slipped past him.

How about Cady M or Vincent I? PC although I doubt that given his age.

I also am not as sold on Frons as the micromanager of all things bad. While I think he is way too involved he can't be involved to the level some want to believe with his position.

Also could they be talking about some above Frons? With the declining ratings at both AMC and OLTL and several most unpopular firings in the last year maybe someone decided to start fixing things?

I think Frons needs to shut up (Can you imagine being in charge of his media relations? LOL. It's either a consultant's dream or nightmare). I don't think he is the micromanager of all things bad. If anything, I think he may be too reluctant to fire people when he should. But yeah, I think he has become too easy a target for the bad things going on at OLTL and AMC. What really pisses me off is firing Dan G. I think that was Frank and Dena and I thiink they were pissed about the excellent interview that ran on this site.

I also think if they want to fire a guy for doing that, OK, I would not like it, but a similar gesture would probably get me fired. LOL. However, and it's a big one, destroying the character was wrong, killing off an entire bloodline was wrong, and lying was wrong. l

OK, my rant. I still miss Dan and the character of Kevin.

Hmmm.....

ATWT - Jeffrey Meek

AMC - Cady McClain, Vincent Iriziarry, Julia Barr (technically)

OLTL - Phil Carey (technically), Paul Satterfield (I doubt it's him though)

GL - Michael Dempsey

We'll see....

Is VI still under contract to Y&R?

I can't see PS being the one. Too many were happy to see the character gone.

There was talk at OL about trying to get GT to reprise the role of Kelly. Might some be unhappy over HT's departure? OLTL does somewhat have egg on it's face with none of their emmy nominations being under contract with the show.

PC is the actor who plays Asa Buchanan. His contract came up for renewal and they offered him recurring and he walked. I guess he doesn't qualify as "fired". He's more of a Julia Barr situation. I definitely can't see him on any show at 80 something other than OLTL.

VI and DG are the two that come to mind when you think of fired actors, at least from ABC. Makes me think it is a non ABC soap.

    • Apologies Slick- not updating my somewhat disorganized lists. Michael Fairman THE YOUNG AND THE RESTLESS   Patrick "Murph" Murphy   2008-14  2017 recurring DAYS OF OUR LIVES  Mr Schroeder 1977 Wesley Ann Pfenning THE YOUNG AND THE RESTLESS   Lauralee 'Lorie' Brooks August 1980 Temp replacement for Jaime Lyn Bauer
    • I sure don't pretend to have expert recall, lol.   In the first episode, Sally McGuire famously said, "Kind of a drag, isn't it.  Being stuck in a place like Genoa City.  God, I feel so restless."  In the same episode, the truck driver told Brad Eliot, "Genoa City -- nice-sized town, but I prefer St. Paul.  That's where the family is."     We were given the idea from Day One that Genoa City was a fairly *small* to *mid-sized* Midwestern metropolis, not nearly as big as a Chicago or even a Detroit or Minneapolis.   In the early 1990s, Victor Newman advised Hope Wilson that Genoa City was comparable to Wichita, Kansas -- population about 400,000 in 1990, with a metro population of around 500,000.   The high-rises that I remember being featured from early on were the Genoa City Hotel and Genoa Towers.  There was a restaurant called "The Embers" in one of them (Genoa Towers, I believe). Lorie Brooks moved into a penthouse, circa 1978, which was located at 247 East Chestnut.  Lorie's unit was #2500, indicating her apartment was on the 25th floor.  Vanessa Prentiss jumped to her death from the balcony in 1981.  During Lorie's trial, they gave the address about a zillion times -- "247 East Chestnut #2500".  This was an inside joke of Bill Bell's, because his co-writer, Kay Alden, resided in real-life at 247 East Chestnut #2500 in the Streeterville neighborhood of Chicago.  From Lorie's balcony, we could see a cluster of several high-rises -- not a Chicago by any stretch of the imagination, but more a Wichita.   Jabot's corporate offices were on 4th Street.  The "corporate suites" were on the 12th floor, indicating the building was likely 12 stories.  Kevin Bancroft, an architect, was hired to design a new high-rise (Newman Towers) in 1981.  Much ado was made about Newman Towers being 35 stories, among the tallest in the city.  The address given for Newman Towers was 7800 Melrose, another Bill Bell inside joke -- Y&R was recorded at 7800 Beverly Blvd in Los Angeles.  Paul moved his office into Newman Towers to "upgrade his image".  As someone mentioned, Nikki took an apartment in Newman Towers to "have a place in town to spend the night" when she "didn't feel like driving back to the ranch"; instead, her apartment became a love nest with Jack Abbott.  Victor and Diane, during their marriage, lived on the top floor of Newman Towers.  The show did a few remotes in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, back in the 1980s and early 1990s.  Evidently the production staff felt Pittsburgh mirrored what we were seeing on-screen -- cold and snowy, good-sized Rust Belt metropolis.  I believe Pittsburgh's population was around 500,000 at the time, comparable to the "Wichita-sized city" Victor described to Hope.   In the early 2000s, there were some "establishing shots" filmed around Charlotte, North Carolina.   Not sure why they selected Charlotte over Pittsburgh.  Probably figured found a couple of buildings there on which "Newman Towers" and "Jabot Cosmetics" could be airbrushed easily.  
    • Yeah, they played it wrong with them last time including the idiotic engagement to Jax (a go-to Ron always goes for with returning characters for no reason and did with Scott and Laura in an equally ridiculous subplot around the same time - there was no way those two would reunite again). But Brenda raising hell in town, antagonizing Carly, reconnecting with A.J. and Robin, even the Michael tease all worked for me because it was about her being central, able to be plugged in anywhere and shaking up the canvas. That is what she is best at and what she can do. Sonny has to come to her where she lives and especially after what happened to their marriage.
    • I mean maybe RH and Vanessa would pop off in chemistry lol.. I actually wouldn't be surprised.   I honestly don't need Brenda in random pairings but I need some movement on Sonny's part to not be the worst.  Because I feel like the always put them back together on popularity with zero movement in the actual lovestory.  And I do feel like the show plays Brenda as so lovelorn for Sonny..which fine, but Sonny is a actual trash bag fire with like 17 kids from 17 moms so...........
    • Janet Wood can be found on page 105. I'll add more to an updated profile in the a.m.      Bobby Doran is on page 210. I added 2 movies there.  Maybe more pics Thursday. I'll add the Bob Bailey, Paul Ford and Jeanne Bates  info  after I add movies/ Broadway to them. Researched Paul Geary  and Jack Wells   +  Stephen Kay of GH and Days newcomer Helen Day.  @Bright Eyes  I'll have Max Ehrich and Cam Gigandet tomorrow, Friday the latest
