As opposed to Jean Passanante, who's only 64 and still got it, right, Jonny baby?

 

I don't know WHY I'm engaging with you NOW, since you long ago proved yourself to be the trolliest troll who ever trolled, but you have REALLY crossed a line with your insinuation that KA is no longer capable as a writer simply because of her age.  I mean, that's the sort of shitty thinking that keeps anyone over 40 from being taken seriously in many professions.

 

Point of fact: writers like KA don't lose their ability to entertain or inspire audiences at any time in their lives.  If they had it at the beginning of their careers, they'll still have it later on.  If anything, the years of life experience will sharpen their skills, rather than dull them.

 

Whatever it is that you do for a living (beside annoy the hell out of people on message boards with your insane idol-worship of hacks like Passanante and Shelly Altman), I pray that if and when you reach 70 years old, no one tells YOU that you've lost your luster and need to go.

I apologize for the mini-rant against whatshisface's comment, but I guess I've been sensitive about ageism, especially against writers, ever since I read an article where both Bill Lawrence and Gary David Goldberg proclaimed how they made a point of hiring exclusively young(er) writers for their shows ("Scrubs" and "Spin City," respectively).  You expect a no-talent douchebag like Lawrence to say he doesn't want older writers on his staff because they might intimidate him (and by "intimidate," he probably meant he didn't want 'em telling him his stories and jokes are puerile), but Goldberg was the surprising one, given the fact that he was no spring chicken himself.

Well whoever it is that was a stupid move

 

It's possible -- no, make that probable -- that KA quit as a sign of solidarity with SSM against CBS' and Sony's level of interference.

 

I wish KA wouldn't take this as a sign to get out of the business altogether.  Daytime soaps are circling the drain, but what about shows on primetime and other viewing platforms?  Surely, with most shows these days being so heavily serialized, one of 'em could use someone like KA (or Nancy Curlee)?

Wow, come to think of it, Y&R must be a NASTY workplace.

 

It is.  In fact, as far as daytime soaps (both past and present) go, I'd venture to say Y&R is the nastiest.  From the beginning, it seems, egos have been that particular show's biggest BTS problem.

"Sussman's No. 2 on The Young and the Restless writing staff" (Sara Bibel) - DC

I do too but as some say I doubt he has anything to do with the current writing. He is EP not the writer.

 

I know it is far fetched but I actually though it was sweet having Maddie and Reed together. He truly likes her and she does him and I know some think she may be boring but she may need to lighten up a bit cause she is a young shy girl but it comes with time but at least she seems real.  I do like spice but I know with time that will happen with her character but at least their not having to make her fake and not wear glasses cause some think it doesn't look cool but it can be very attractive and sexy when they let her come out of her shell. I just don't want her turning into a bad girl. I like her innocence and intelligence it's nice to see her and Reed opposite but really dig each other.

 

It's like Daniel and Lily although I also like DS Lily too but I did always prefer Daniel with Lily and whoever Lily was at the time I didn't mind cause I liked her paired with him with either actress although DS was the better Lily at the time.  By the way I always hated they split them up when they had supercouple status back then and potential for the future too.

 

IMO anyway.

 

 

I like the SLs SORASING them brought about but they look so odd with CK. It looks like TPTB have been trying to make her (CK) look frumpy, I guess for their scenes together, and it just does not work. For me anyhow. They look too old for CK. I can also see that all three of them are trying to make it work. Bad casting IMO.

 I know they are aged a lot but I have to say I really love Mattie and I just saw the show with her and Reed, just too sweet for words.

I think Sally/Kay had free reign from December until about April but record low ratings and lost revenue prompted CBS to start interfering. Obviously the Philly reunion happened because of them and we started hearing about Adam which Sally didnt want to explore. Why do u guys think networks should jusy renew there contracts off crappy ratings?

 

I dont think Mal has any big ego. He clearly is liked by the cast. Every cast member raves about him. I am hoping we get excitement back, real stories with big payoffs.  What worked 25 years ago for YR doesnt mean it will work now?

You "think" Sally/Kay had free rein until such-and-such a time then CBS stepped in. You don't know that. It's total speculation on your part. You are compulsively driven to make posters believe you have inside knowledge when you don't. It's pathetic, man. Seriously, you need to take a break from posting, get a reality check.

When Jean annouces two months in advance and stays till end of contract it spells she left. Shelly said she tried talking her out of it. 

Was that the "Shelly" in your head, the one that talks to you and gives you all your inside scoops? The "Shelly" no one else sees or hears but you? Also, who gives a damn when Jean P announced her retirement? Most of the soap world is glad she's gone. You really need some help, dude.

Mal best stuff was with Chuck Pratt. Even the Chloe reveal was based off Pratt stuff. I dont see Doug being a jerk never got that impression. I didnt see any real actors raving about Sally/Kay. Kay Alden is 70 years old maybe shes lost her luster. Honestly Kay should go back to B&B. The one thing i think that CBS shouls do is give Mal a co exec. Even Sally McDonald at one time was co.exec with maria.

You've said some shitty stuff on this board, but I find your comment about Ms. Alden to be a new low for you. If she's lost her "luster," as you so indelicately put it, why would you suggest she go back to B&B? Age has nothing to do with talent. Bill Bell and Agnes Nixon both wrote into their 70s. Finally, how do you know the Chloe reveal was based of CP stuff? Who told you that? Where did you read it? Cite your sources. Seriously, man, you have the right to your opinions, but you can't just make crap up and peddle it as fact. Get a grip. Get a life.
