I started watching GH in 1988. I really liked Robert with Cheryl and later on Katherine. In the beginning i found Katie Lady bland. But Katherine grew on me. I hated that they made Cheryl obsessed with Robert. The only thing i liked about GM's second run was Cheryl giving up her obsession with Robert. The whole obsession thing was out of character for Cheryl .Didn't like seeing a strong career women like Cheryl in a deluded dream world. Katherine & Robert's break up scenes around Thanksgiving of 1990. Were very well written and very adult. 

 

I was watching YouTube's of Robert and Katherine..probably near the end of their relationship.  She fit in well with Sean, Tiff, and Anna.  However, you could tell the actress was playing up the insecurity her character felt about her relationship with Robert.  Oddly, I thought her and Anna fit better as friends then either did with Robert.  It made perfect sense that the two broke up because Katherine would always feel doubt about Roberts love for her.  It is telling that within six to eight months after the break up scenes between Robert and Katherine that he and Anna remarried.

 

My late mom watched in the 80s...and she was team Holly...but she loved Anna with Duke.

The infamous Lori Davis/Cher infomercials are back on Youtube, and I didn't know one of them had her sister Georgianne Lapierre.

Those infomercials were hilarious. I wonder whatever happened to Lori Davis.

 

Apparently she still has a site (not sure how old it is). The FAQ includes a question asking if she still makes the same product she made in the infomercials, which cracks me up. I wonder if she and Cher ever speak as Cher felt those damaged her career a great deal (I'm not sure what she expected - maybe she didn't realize just how much infomercials were run into the ground, especially in the '90s). 

 

I didn't realize that Larry Hagman and Ted Danson were in them too (they are in another one of her infomercials). I always thought they both wore rugs by this point.

 

All those were wiped from YT for several years but they are back now for some reason. 

 

I didn't realize that Georgianne was even spoofed on SNL (mostly by Melanie Hutsell making her usual goofy faces). I guess that's making it...

How dumb was Cher not to know that she would become an object of derison because of these campy infomercials?

 

Even if Hagman and Danson wore wigs at that point, I doubt that pesky fact would have stopped them from appearing with Davis. The claims made on infomercials has always been sketchy, and for the actors, money talk$.

 

I don't know how long these videos will survive on YT. We must enjoy them while we can.

 

I wish I knew how to down vids from the internet.

I bought a program, but if you want to use a free one I use this sometimes:

It's tougher for Dailymotion as the one I use has virus and pop-up issues.

Thanks, Carl.

 

On my long-dead computer, I had an easy-to-use program, but I totally forget its name and can't find it again. It had a slate, like they use in movie and TV productions, just before the filming begins, with the numbers 1, 2, 3 on it.

 

What program did you buy?
