Goutman: You know, we had a killer idea for Sierra after you left.

MBE: (laughing) Really? Damn. Guess I made a mistake leaving.

Goutman: You know, they opened an awesome Thai restaurant 2 blocks from the studio after you left.

MBE: (laughing) Man, I made a mistake leaving!

Goutman: (laughing) You know, on ATWA your husband was kind of evil but at least we didn't make him Batshit Crazy

MBE: (laughing) Yeah, I made a mistake leaving you guys, huh?

I could keep going all day :)

Sure it does. If she was faking it, she certainly wouldn't spout off about what a mistake she'd made.

His point is that MB is a genuinely happy, fun person and tries to make the people around her feel the same way. He's said versions of that more times than I can count.

I can see what you're saying, GBB.

But on the other hand, what if she meant that she "made a mistake" and she meant it the way the reporter is implying? I'm certainly not going to hold it against her - if she's unsatisfied with Days, she's unsatisfied with Days. She may not have intended for anyone to overhear her comment to Goutman.

If it was a direct quote, then she's a bitch. ATWT can have her back. She's done absolutely nothing for DAYS as of right now, so whatever.

And if it wasn't a direct quote and it was taken out of context, ATWT can still have her back. :)

Actually, the reporter doesn't say "she went on about" the fact that she should have days. The reporter says "Mary Beth Evans admitted ... "I made a mistake," saying that she should have stayed with his show." -- "saying that she should have stayed with the show" was the reporter's clarification of "I made a mistake."

And even though it's in a reputable paper and not a gossip page, the section this is quoted in is under the heading "Overheard at the Emmys" so again, I don't know how many people's filters I'm hearing this through, so I have to weigh in what I know about MBE's personality and past actions and it just doesn't track for me.

Even if she did say it, how does that make her a bitch? It's not like she announced her dissatisfaction in public. It was a private comment that she only intentionally shared with one person.

I don't see how she's being a bitch. She turned down a multi-year contract with ATWT and a huge storyline (and popular character) to revive Steve and Kayla on DAYS which has been a huge bust. Throw in the fact that her story was on the frontburner as the ratings fall into the toilet and I can't see how she'd be happy. She probably feels that she's partly to blame for that.

I always said she was nuts for leaving. Sierra was an interesting character with tons of potential had she stayed on the show. On DAYS they've handed her a boring version of Kayla and an even worse storyline.

She TOTALLY made a mistake. But I would only want her back at ATWT if she's willing to commit. My first choice will always be Finn Carter, the original (and best) Sierra.

I'm not going to judge someone when I don't know the context this quote was taken from, or the tone MBE used when/if she said it. People say things all the time in a joking manner or to be nice. I once met up with a former employer and jokingly asked if my old job was available, knowing full well that even if it was, I wouldn't want it.

      I just hate this storyline so much. And I really, really hate when awful people keep getting rewarded for their awful behavior. Both in real life and in fiction. It’s not right. Say what you will about Sonny and Carly, but they’ve at least somewhat paid for their awful behavior. Not as much as they should but it was still more than this. How can anyone treat someone that they claim to care about so terribly? And then just not care at all about that person or what they did to them? Over at Days, I hated it when Ciara did it to Theo and I hated it when Craig did it to Nancy. But Joss is worse than the two of them put together. It’s like she not even human. I find her to be even worse than Carly. I know Carly has problems being a decent person too, but she would never treat the people that she says she cares about the way that Joss treated Cam and now to a lesser extent, Spencer and Michael. And honestly, I want Joss to suffer worse than any person on GH ever has.  I have absolutely no idea what the writers, or Frank are thinking with the way this storyline is being written. And do they seriously think that this consolation prize crap of Cam going to play soccer for Stanford (and Trina constantly reminding us of it) makes everything better? It doesn’t. 
    • I hesitate to post Thompson, who is just a gleeful gossip hound. But this thread is instructive, even if much of it is stuff we all could've told the GOP and the NY Times six months ago.  
    • Sure. They've been sent to live on a farm with other not gone actors where they can run and play.
    • From what I can find, Tim was datie Evie but got a job offer out of town that was too good to pass up and left in Nov 76. No mention of Pam and no reason I could see that a marriage would be mentioned later. I just checked Soap Central and there is an entry stating Evie left town and Pam and Tim were married. Not so.This is not the first false entry I have come across at that site. Someone takes delight at posting false info.
    • She's under Ryan (I added this).  Pam married Tim at some point-- from what I read. If not, let me know.
