ATWT: Elizabeth Hubbard talks to Tv Guide


Recommended Posts

Great interview. I remember Logan saying years ago that Liz was too OTT for him so I was surprised he was so positive but then I guess she deserves that respect in her last interview for ATWT. I will miss Lucinda so much. It has never been the same since FMB came along and had no real idea what to do with Lucinda and finally Liz left the show -- she has been much more low-key on her return. One of the few real pleasures of this last year on ATWT has been Lucinda going back somewhat to the finger-in-every-pie, mannered, restless woman she was in her best years. It was, as Hubbard once said FMB said they should call a gag reel of her, "Liz Unleashed!"

If it wasnt for Elizabeth Hubbard we wouldnt have gotten Larry Bryggman back!

Yes. She knew what was best for her character and the show to the end. I'm glad Goutman for once did not let spite get in the way...

Your damn right she could demand attention. I used to look forward to her short emmy clips every year in the 80's when she was nominated. And I have only seen maybe 3-4 episodes of ATWT in my entire life, one of which was the Walsh takeover episode with Connor Jamison sp?

She had the BEST daytime emmy reels, and how she never won in the 80's is beyond me. I would sit there mesmerized and play the tape over and over. lol

I remember pretty much verbatim the scene they showed in 1988 or 89.

"Lily is going back to Montega, WAIT FOR IT! SHE'S GOING BACK TO MONTEGA, WAIT FOR IT!!!, to give Craig SPACE!.. SPACE!!! So he can make a decision about... I WILL NOT ALLOW IT AMBROSE! I will NOT ALLOW IT! I WILL NOT ALLOW CRAIG TO DRIVE MY DAUGHTER OUT OF MY LIFE AGAIN. ("Ambrose" tries to say something)

I WILL TELL HIM WHAT I THINK! AND I WILL TELL ELLIE SNYDER!! IF WHOEVER IS ON THE PHONE WILL GET OFF THE DAMN PHONE!!!!! (Before call waiting, of course)

There were many characters on ATWT who could incite drama just by entering a room, and EH's Lucinda definitely was one of them. EH, too, is probably one of the last, remaining people in this cursed business who still pushes for integrity when everyone else just wants to get the damned thing done so they can go home. I'll miss her. I'll miss Lucinda. :(

I want her on a soap but not sure where she'd fit. I'd take her on OLTL over Kim Zimmer any day.

TV Guide Magazine: Thoughts on the cancellation?

Hubbard: What can one say? I am told ATWT has been replaced by a talk show, something along the lines of The View only all the people will be talking about their babies. Really? Not everybody wants to hear about babies, do they? I think you want to hear about that stuff when you have a problem, but people need something that takes you into a different world, which is what the soaps have always done so beautifully.

:wub:

No, we don't. We really don't. I have two and I still don't. laugh.gif I hope CBS finds that out the hard way, not that it will change anything. The least they could have done is put on a freaking game show or something.

LH is one of the actors that I'll miss the most, since she will most likely retire.

LMAO!

Liz Hubbard retire? God, I hope not.

*cough*Jill'sbioglogicalmom*cough*

That could be good, too. ;-)

You know, if Y&R still told business stories entertainingly, and PGP allowed their soap characters to cross over to non-PGP soaps, I think a short-term arc for Lucinda and WorldWide could have been interesting. Lucinda doing corporate battle with Victor, the Abbot's, Katherine, and Jill.

But no, not now, not with the current management at Y&R.

I think ATWT and GL could have had a great corporate crossover battle in the early 90's, when Spaulding and Walsh Enterprises still meant something. Alexandra (Bev McKinsey of course) and Lucinda doing battle in a short-term story arc? Sign me up.

    • 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.
