Branco does it again and I quote " TVG: No one talks to my Adrienne like that and gets away with it. You have balls! Balls I’d like to worship! "

Read it here! Pleeeease discuss!

Here's more tidbits:

TVG: You told me at the Primetime Emmys that you dated Graz at one point.

AF: Yeah, we did years ago. I think that’s why we’re best friends now. We never really clicked romantically. We were meant to be best friends. He’s like my brother. [Laughs] Maybe that sounds a little weird! No, it’s a great friendship because he gives me the best advice, especially when it comes to relationships since we dated and he knows what I’m like! It’s great to have an ex that you can confide in, you know? He always knows what I’m going to do in a relationship before I do. We’ve been close friends for years.

TVG: I’m so happy you’re on my favourite soap, Y&R. I think your character is the future of Genoa City.

AF: Listen, after Sunset Beach, I’m happy to have been working on the top two-rated soaps in the medium. I’ll give you a scoop: I hated being on Sunset Beach. They were so mean to me. Truthfully, I was nice and professional, but they made me feel like this acting business was unhealthy and mean-spirited. Luckily, I left the show, and two weeks later I booked B&B. I love Brad Bell for hiring me. You know, it was hard to play Randy Spelling’s love interest when his father, Aaron, was the boss. It was really weird. Aaron’s eyes were always on me whenever I was in a love scene with Randy. He even made me chop off all my hair despite the fact that I refused to initially. I loved my long hair. I even cried when they made me chop it all off. And then Aaron actually yelled at me for crying over the incident. My gripe was that there was no story reason behind it. You don’t do that to a kid.

The biggest WTF? though was this:

TVG: Would you like Andrea Evans to reprise her B&B role as Amber’s mother, Tawny? I’d love to see Tawny and Katherine do battle over Amber.

AF: It’s funny, because I was talking to our executive producer, Paul Rauch, the other day and out of the blue he mentioned Andrea Evans. I told him, “You do know she played Amber’s mother on B&B, right?” But he didn’t know! He said, “That’s really good to know; that’s great.” So you never know. I think it’d be amazing, but I think the only way Tawny could visit Genoa City is if Amber’s in a really good place so her mom will want to either screw it up or cash in on her daughter’s success.

I would have thought acting opposite Randy Spelling was punishment enough.

Can you keep that avatar forever please? LOL!

i didn't even know she was on Sunset Beach before this interview. And I can not believe PR did not know AE played Amber's mom on B&B. This leads me to think MAB has never discussed it with him either. Did AE get along with people at B&B/Bell Dramatic?

Classic. Possibly 2nd to "Australian racism." ROTFLMAO!

I loved B&B Amber so I am glad that Adrienne got that gig.

Who was the HW and EP of Sunset Beach?

Co-creator and headwriter was none other than Bob Guza. Bet you are not surprised.

Nelson claiming that Amber is the future of Y&R-God forbid.

A little of Amber,and I mean a little,goes a loooong way.

Quite often you read of execs not knowing about the past of the shows they work on.

It's sad when fans know more than the people involved.

Adrienne saying that Rauch was interested in the Andrea Evans tidbit,doesn't amount to much-if he couldn't be bothered finding out in the first place.

Ok... no. NO. You cannot post an interview like this where Adrienne Frantz is being all adorable and [[email protected]#$%^&*] because it makes me like Amber! And I don't want to. I want to tolerate her because she's with the Graz. Plus hating B&B's Amber has been a constant in my life for @ 10 years.

I still think that without the Daniel pairing, Amber would have been a non-starter on Y&R. Lynn Marie Troll wrote her horribly. The Hooker Diaries with that meth ATWT chick? Internet porn? The mole over her left boob that Lily recognized? :blink: Plum? The money scam? Shudder shudder SHUDDER.

Re: Aaron Spelling. I'm sad to hear this -- I always heard that he was tough but professional, never deliberately cruel. Unfortunately, AF was too young and the character of Tiffany too underwritten to become the David Silver to Randy's Donna Martin.

And at least Tori had more than one facial expression in her acting box of tricks ("hounddog" and "drunken hounddog"). Randy had only one: shouty.
