I thought Alan could only do 6 guests at a time? I didn’t realize KZ and RN would be there at first glance until I swiped. I’m only familiar with Ashley and Kimberly as Marah and would love to see their (KZ and RN) initial reaction to seeing them as grown women but Alan clearly has everyone see each other “backstage” before going live, unfortunately.  
 

Still I am looking forward to this one.  
 

ETA his Instagram description doesn’t mention Marty West at all. Just the girls. I wonder which one is correct.

Maybe they will shuffle in and out of the stream. Lindsey McKeon was the worst Marah. I wish Alan would ask how Kim Zimmer felt when the show fired Laura Bell Bundy for Lindsey.  Bundy’s Marah had an essence similar to what Pelphrey’s Jonathan would be later. Totally missed opportunity for the show not to have had Bundy, Branson, and Pelphrey on screen together with Zimmer at the same time.

It's going to be a hot mess.

I was not watching GL when Bundy was on so I don't know how she did but I thought McKeon was quite good especially in the storyline where her romance with Tony started to crumble. 

Bundy was great. I remember viewers hating McKeon's version of Mariah.

I had forgotten Branson played Shayne. He was forgettable in the role and totally miscast.

I watched a bunch of 1994 episodes.  What a difference two years make.

 

Too much Buzz, too much Lucy, Marj as Alexandra, VI is much harder to digest as Nick without Beverlee and Simms.  And even though I enjoy Alan-Michael there was too much of him too.  Also there are several scenes with awful background music.  For everything good (Jenna) there were like three annoying things.

1994 was a bizarre year with the worst of JFP's tendencies on showcase. The show also had like a million HW's after Curlee departed - at one point there were like 6 people being credited as a part of a HW-ing team. Way too many cooks in the kitchen for anything to work.

Can you imagine that Brent/Marion story flying today? It would be considered so transphobic, even though the character wasn’t technically trans.

 

I don't know if it would be considered transphobic since nothing in the story was about trans folks and Brent never IDed as a woman (he was a tranvestite and only for his nefarious purposes) but it probably wouldn't be done today since it harkens to the fantasies surrounding TS and bathrooms and that awful canards that there are lines of male predators supposedly eager to pretend they are women to... pee in the same bathroom as women? I dunno.

 

I can only think of three stories in US daytime explicitly about a trans character - The City, Passions and B&B - but I might be missing one.

Especially when Marty West most likely will be trying to flirt with Branson! (one could only hope how hilarious would that be??)

 

I actually liked as we called her PornMarah in her last year or two, over Bundy. They were trying to make Bundy a chip off the old block and it didn't work. I thought McKeon was good as the antiReva..a girl brought up with her mom's insane drama but wanting to be different, and was at times hostile to Reva.  I thought Shane should have been the Reva Jr. wild, but of course, we had to have Pelphery's Jonathon to do that. By the way, has anyone seen his outstanding work on Ozark???

On Twitter someone asked about Jeff Branson and Alan Locher said he isn't participating anymore on the show next week. 

Thats too bad..I liked him as Shane, though he did seem a bit too old for the part..but he made a believable post service Shane and liked how his quiet masculinity stood in contrast to Jonathon's over wrought style (by the way, did you see his great work on...)
