Youthful Essences: For a long stretch of time this sudser wasn't even receiving network notes; now it is, and the overarching sentiment is GO YOUNGER! This doesn't bode well for a recently-returned vet, who could soon be on his or her way out, along with the actress or actor he or she shares the majority of scenes with.

GH's Finola Hughs and Tony Geary?

Paging Bobby Ewing: The head writer(s) of this soap—which finds itself once again amid backstage turmoil—pitched a storyline that would basically say the last year's worth of story was all a dream. Yeah, because fans loved it so much when Dallas did that!

This has to be days. MarDar's work has been so awful that I wanted the Olympic cliffhanger to be a dream with all the stupid retcons and unnecesary drivel erased (Maggie as Daniel's mom, EJ not a Dimera, etc...)

Making It Up Along The Way: This scribe hasn't written a long story in years. He or she makes arcs up week to week!

Bell on B&B. WAY too many rehashes of the same ish and its obvious there is no clear goal in mind especially how stories abruptly end with no resolution

I Hate You, But I Have to Pretend I Love You: Fans wondering why their favorite couples have been separated for lengthy arcs on this soap would be shocked to know that the actors who play the characters simply cannot stand one another. Sure, there's been feuds and gripes before, but the bickering has reached the point of no return. One half of one supercouple has even begun lobbying for the return to the soap of a former screen partner, whom he or she also created soap magic with.

Id have to imagine Y&R as rumors of the behind the scenes stuff tend to indicate a not so pleasant environment

Jealous, Much?: This soap lead, who has driven story for the better part of a decade, is seeing green over a popular newcomer
Maurice Bernard and Michael Easton?

No Gay Today: A plan for this serial to attempt another gay story—to make up for the botched last try—was nixed before it ever reached the network level.

Considering Days and B&B are currently doing gay stories its either GH or Y&R and I think it could be GH and Morgan

I will say the show is GH, because I think Brian Frons remained hands-off as long as JFP and Robert Guza were in charge. Furthermore, I am certain the "recently returned vet" is Finola Hughes. But the co-star? I really can't see Tony Geary being shown the door. One thing that has not changed since Frons's departure is that Geary, Maurice Benard, Steve Burton and maybe Laura Wright remain The Untouchables.

Backburnered as Punishment: This soap's showrunners could care less how popular a certain actor or actress is. The thesp-in-question is reportedly being backburnered as punishment for speaking out. Way to put the soap first, vengeful execs!

Well, we know it isn't GH, because practically everyone raves about working now for Frank Valentini. Same goes for B&B and Bradley Bell. I might suggest DAYS...except that would suggest that Ken Corday has a backbone. So I'll just say Y&R and leave the "thesp-in-question" as a question mark.

It's definitely Gary Tomlin & Christopher Whitesell at DAYS. Frank and Ron don't appear to be slowing down in any way at GH; Bradley Bell has managed to keep B&B free from BTS turmoil for quite the while; and frankly, MAB & Co. just don't have the guts to admit the mistakes they've made with Y&R.

Bradley Bell. Moving on....

I think the soap we're talking about here is Y&R. Otherwise, though, I am stumped.

Jealous, Much?: This soap lead, who has driven story for the better part of a decade, is seeing green over a popular newcomer.

What's the matter, Maurice? Afraid of a little competition?

No Gay Today: A plan for this serial to attempt another gay story—to make up for the botched last try—was nixed before it ever reached the network level.

As usual, I agree with Carl. Although it faded quickly, GH's story with Lucas was far more successful than Y&R's story with Phillip, which turned out to be one of that show's biggest wastes.

I think that the Jealous Much blind item is Steve Burton, not MB. MB is still driving story even though ME is his nemesis. It is Burton's toes that ME is stepping on. No way that Burton can be happy about this triangle developing with Sam and John or the positive response from some fans. I think Carly was the last time that Jason lost a woman to another man and that was Sonny. I predicted the clash of the egos when ME and RH joined GH. They are all accustom to being the suns in their miniscule universes.

What just about to say that add in MB is one twitter saying he loves having them around and he wants more crossovers. Meanwhile SBu barley tweets about the show if at all.

Dee and Drake? The guy she's lobbying for is Wayne Northrup or he could be lobbying for the return of either Staci Greason or Eileen Davidson? But has there ever been rumors that Dee and Drake don't like one another? When did it start?

I hope its not Days. I dont wait this to ungay Will

It says pitched a storyline; not that they are writing it. It seems the writers wanted to go that route but got shut down. I do wish it was Days bc so much of this last year was a mess

I agree with this completely! I think it's Burton not Benard, I think Burton's nose is out of join at the overwhelmingly positive response to "McBam"

Days passed that point a LONG time ago. I dont think anything can beat the ridiculous retcons that brought all the dead people back from the serial killer plot a few years back

I don't think the Lucas story was seen as botched (although it didn't do much for me). I think it would be Y&R, which was a fiasco and a PR nightmare.

They might be referring to Cartini and Kish.

    • Finally watched RHOM, and it was a packed episode.  First off, I agree that the women have plenty going on in their own lives that they don't need to be thrown together every episode for manufactured drama. I love seeing Guerdy doing her event planning, and Alexia basically breathing drama. She is a Bravo producer's dream in terms of her real life and her willingness to hold her own with the other women. She is the Alpha Dog. Secondly, I was ready to put Nicole in the one-and-done category, but she stepped it up this episode. First of all, the confrontation with her clearly-drunk dad which likely did not go the way she envisioned and was all the more organic because of it. Second, Nicole finally leaned into her inner Cubana -- you could hear it in her accent and greater use of Spanish with Alexia. I feel like this gave her toughness and allowed her to take on four women coming for her all dinner long. Now, do I think Marysol brought this up to thirstily keep the drama going and finally claim that mojito? Yes I do. Marysol is that HW. However, I 100% agree with you that Baby Nicole made a classic rookie mistake. She got involved in someone else's drama. And she talked out of turn about the women while Marysol took notes. She handled herself well but damage was done. Nicole did strike back with that 'Alexia talking about Marysol behind her back' comment. We will see how that shakes out next week, because Marysol looked like she believed it for a minute. Speaking of trying to land that mojito -- Adriana in the bath. Lord! And Julia soaping her back and ogling. I'm starting to think that Julia may not be very bright, although I did like her Voice of Reason throughout the dinner. Alexia spoke the Lord's Truth about Lisa bringing glam to the house. WTF? For a clambake where she wore jeans and a tank top? I love glamour and fashion and all that,  but glam-with-no-place-to-go has completely overtaken these shows in lieu of actual SLs, and it is completely ridiculous. I love that Alexia and Marysol did their own looks together and we got to see it. And this just echoes what an empty vessel Lisa is. All looks and fillers and nothing else. At least Larsa has a jewellery line to promote. The only thing I disagree on with you is Kiki. I love her fashion and hair looks. But she is like a ghost floating through this pack of women. When she said she needed to "caca," literally nobody reacted and I was like 'Do they not see her standing right there?' 
    • Surely Bravo is not so stupid as to keep this newbie non-entity in the face of audience and cast disgust?? Bravo knows that keeping and coddling Brandi Redmond for the whole season was absolutely the worst decision it made in terms of RHOD. It killed the show, and was only one in a series of shaky decisions about race that Bravo made last year, even as it tried to embrace more diversity. Jennie just isn't important to the show like the S1 cast are and can be quickly dispensed with. I think Bravo is hastily trying to film the fallout from this week, whereupon Jennie will be exiled from 'the group.' That's my speculation. There will be lingering repercussions, of course, namely Lisa's flimsy condemnation of Jennie compared with Jen and Heather. My question is, what happens with the rest of this current season? Not to mention Reunion which will probably feature Jennie quite a bit. Without Mary there, she likely controlled the narrative when it came to their beef. Is Bravo re-editing to minimize her role, or will they be front-loading Jennie attacking Mary so as to reinforce what an awful person she is? Honestly, Bravo just needs to film Jennie being dropped from the group, and maybe pause production for a few weeks while it assesses some newbies and gets its act together.  (P.S.: Speaking of RHOD, would love to see Tiffany and D'Andra pop up in SLC. For some reason, I think they'd be a good fit).

    • I guess 1985 when Jack hired Nikki as a Jabot model (which happened around Mar 85). Not sure when they slept together, but I believe there were plenty of smooches at Jabot. It was the same time Victor rescued Ashley. Also Matt turned up about the same time and he and Nikki definitely made eyes at each other too and eventually (though not until 1986) planned to marry. In 1986 Nikki went back and forth between Jack and Matt while remaining hopeful about Victor. 
    • Ryan Phillippe was a guest star on SNL tonight to help plug the new MacGruber show (the video is on their channel as I don't want to clog up the thread).
