Aww, how sad. I remember watching his show in the afternoon before Oprah took his timeslot. I had no idea that he and Mary Ann had been married for so long. For some reason I thought they'd married later in life like Maggie and Mr. Drummond.

Sophia on The Golden Girls had a crush on him. happy.png She said Mary Ann was the luckiest woman in the world to get to go to bed with him every night.

I remember back in the early 90's, when on the HOME show, there was a huge deal that occured when a guest doctor accidentally injected Sarah Purcell with a syringe that he used on Collins just moments before. Collins did have an HIV and Hepatitis test, although they both knew the risk was pretty nil in their situation. The doctor simply got nervous on live TV and screwed up, he was EXTREMELY upset and left the studio in tears at the commercial break. Dr, Art Ulene who was in the studio that day took over the next segement, explained what happened and what the risks were.

Thanks, that's the article I read right after I Google'd! :lol: That Dr. was mortified, poor guy. I'm always nervous when I see people getting facial injections on TV shows, like, I would want a doctor injecting my FACE not talking to a host and breezing through the procedure like he was haphazardly rinsing a dish before sticking it in the dishwasher. I want your 100% focus!

    • Please accept my apologies. Sometimes i get a bit loopy. The bad experiences i've had on here. Have done a real number on me. Thank you for the info.
    • I hope you buckle up and take Dramamine.  
    • Oh, I know. It's why I was be so adamant about anything on the Ericole roller coaster. 
    • Exactly!! No matter what actor is playing him, Nikolas has been sitting on the fence between  light and dark. And in the last few years he has been going dark, darker, darkest. That writing has definitely been on the wall. I thought it was very telling that Laura made a comment about her time on Cassandine Island that put that in perspective.   That was a great scene and Maura played that line to the hilt.    That is something I forgot to mention. The fact that while I too do not want Esme to be a heroine, I have to admit the actress is winning me over to her current state...the elusive tabula rasa. The audience is aware of who she is and what she has done, but in her current state, she has a remorse and common sense factor to her that does make her compiling in a way that Esme as vixen did not. One almost (note on ALMOST) do not want her to remember. That said...given SOD's February Sweeps info, it looked like she might be getting aimed at someone she should be aimed at, continuing to prove she should have never came out of that particular bubble of story. Even if the result if true, is typical of her current arc.
