Daytime TV Reader's Poll No. 001


Recommended Posts

  • Members

First off this is not Steve. This is his partner while he was living, Gilbert (or as he called me Gil). I have been trying to clean out some of Steve's stuff and ran across some things that I thought I would share on some of the sites he used to go too. I am very slow at this kind of stuff so the posts may be 1 a day or so. But I am going to try to get some of his stuff in his vast collection out to places. Hope you enjoy. And hope this is okay with the Admins to post on his account.

Note: These are from Steve's vast collection. He had tons of stuff scanned over at his old site and some stuff he never posted. I am going to try and put some of it out there for others. Don't ask me questions please because I have no way of knowing who any of these folks are. I didn't start watching soaps until 2006 and then pretty much only GH.

Steve had this note with this. He said that it was a big surprise to everyone when Don Stewart won since it was so widely accepted that Jonathan Frid was the most popular actor in soaps at the time. So everyone was shocked.

This was an unexpected gift, thank you, and Steve.

Did you notice that they don't mention AW's early ratings struggles, but do mention those with Love is a Many Splendored Thing, and then say that the show got better thanks to ditching an interracial relationship. Good luck saying that in print today. Yet that attitude is still prevalent in daytime <_<

After all my memories of Robert Mandan as Chester Tate it's kind of funny hearing that viewers liked him for his strength.

What a gem, thank you so much for sharing Gil!

Carl, I was thinking the same think about Robert Mandan.

It's almost surreal to read about people like Donna Mills in her twenties living in midtown Manhattan, Robin Strasser just having her first child...

And DaytimeFan HAS to see that ad for the instant lifts. :lol:

I kind of laughed at how every entry, especially for the men, had to very quickly say whether they were single or involved with someone. I guess they figured most of the readers had delusions of happily ever after with the hunks.

Poor Eileen; in that photo she looks like she's choking on a feather.

Thank you, Gilbert, for sharing these! I'm sorry for the loss of your partner. SteveFrame was quite the soap opera expert and I know I'm not alone in saying that those of us on this board looked forward to his posts.

Thank you for posting this, as well.

Interesting to see someone from One Life to Live, who I don't even think I knew about make the list Joseph Gallison.

I was surprised by that too. Wasn't that the character who was amnesiac and who was close to Meredith? They implied he might have been Victor's long lost son?

    • Can't wait!! Seasons 8-10 is very high praise indeed!
    • @CatI feel like Tamra was the missing piece of the puzzle, but this is a good set up for her to return next year. It felt like classic RHOC like seasons 8-10. They gave you everything, but with the elevation that Heather brought when she first joined. Even Emily and Gina felt right. It felt like no time had passed. I didn't miss or even think about Kelly Dodd.
    • Just so, so ridiculous! I've always wondered if Andy is really not into Latinas, especially ones with slight accents like Adriana. Even though all of us watching can perfectly understand Adriana and enjoy her Brazilian telenovela flair. There is no reason Adriana couldn't be a mojito-holder, and Martina Navratilova's wife (I mean, God bless, because Martina is a straight-up ICON), who barely appears in the trailer, couldn't be a FOH. Marysol, too, is like a tentpole figure whose PR business united all the women in the OG RHOMi. ITA that Marysol seems a lot more entertaining than she was on the original series. Back then, Mama Elsa dominated and Marysol seemed a lot shyer, more passive and sensitive. Since her mother's death, I imagine Marysol has had to come to terms with that and come into her own fabulousness. I always found it interesting that Marysol, Alexia and Adriana had an understanding (las cubanas + la brasileira) to the detriment of other friendships.   Thanks for the glowing review! I will catch up on it. Does it feel like familiar OC? I feel like OC lost some of its familiar OC magic in the last few seasons, so I'm excited about Heather returning. Obviously if Tamra popped up, it would be phenomenal! I'm just so glad the toxic, exhausting Kelly Doddlezal is no longer on the show. I can't overstate how much she was ruining the show for me.
    • I also wanted to say that my middle school years were spent in eastern Massachusetts, near Boston, where some of those towns are naturally gothic and a bit witchy (and not just the original Salem lol). I was part of a Catholic family and there were a big Irish Catholic presence where I grew up, but my mom was foreign (French), and so we weren't as closely embraced in that community where people had long generational ties to the area. So I got to observe a lot about how these communities hummed. There were cultures of silence and unspoken little scandals. The Catholic aspect always held an element of karma or superstition! And it was cold and icy winter conditions for about 4-5 months of the year. For these reasons, Days during Reilly's run resonated with me, and I felt like he understood the soul of a place like the one I lived in. His last name certainly made me wonder if he was writing from New England and somewhat immersed in that world.
    • Andy said on his radio show that Adriana is a friend because they didn't want to have too many housewives. That is stupid IMO because 7 would've been fine. He said she's in every episode and will seem full time and from the trailer she's giving more than some of the mojito holders. Just an odd, odd move. I also find all the Marysol to be odd since she's also a friend. Marysol also seems more interesting than she was before.    I was convinced it was going to be terrible based on the lack of promo, but the RHOC premiere was the best opening episode for any of the shows that premiered this year. I feel like most have a big hook to draw you in, but it takes weeks to get there as we saw with RHOBH and RHOSLC. With OC, it kicked off right away. They did everything right. They reintroduced Heather, gave us house porn and a proper update on her family and life. Then they got us all caught up on Emily and Gina and gradually introduced the newbies. This all led to whispers of a secret and they left us with a great cliffhanger! No "wait 10 episodes for the drama to start," they literally just gave it to us. I thought everybody brought it and I think RHOC is going to have a good season.
