I still cannot believe that a woman like Susan gave birth to a man like EJ.

 

Except that Susan does have the ability to look like Kristen - and Kristen DEFINITELY could've given birth to a stud.

I'm not totally unimpressed, but she is playing a toned down Susan. Her voice isn't all there... she just sounds extra Southern-fried instead of fried. ED played her like a hideous mutant, but SH is going for nutty/quirky? I dunno... I'm not totally unimpressed.

 lol. I'm still annoyed beyond belief but it just is what it is at this point so I'm trying to have the perspective of "she's a stand-in" who will likely do a passable job. I had to LOL at the other board wanting a tale of two Kristen's. God no.

 

I think the show, and SH, know what it means to be taking over this role. It's a big deal. She apparently did her research, the cast and crew helped, she was given tapes. I'm not saying she's doing an "impersonation" but you could almost look at like that, she's a "fill in". Like a temporary recast. Again, just how I'm trying to look at it.

 

I was more pissed she "couldn't" do it more than I was that she was recast. I wonder if that played a role in her finally saying DEUCES BITCHES to Y&R. I'm glad she hopefully realized they were wasting her. DAYS has always valued her more but Y&R has always been her "home".

Lol. I understand. It is good to see that so far, so good going by the DAYS episode thread.

 

That's good to hear. However, it will all depend on how SH does Kristen I suspect.

 

Agree with the last paragraphe completely. DAYS always has valued her better even though I love Eileen as Ashley.

Well, SH is doing pretty good! IMHO. It's really a fairly seamless change to me. I'm not even picturing how Eileen would do it. Like I still do with certain recasts like Amelia Heinle and Marci Miller. I think she works much better as Susan simply because she can wear the wig, the teeth and truly get into character. I'm more concerned with her as Kristen. Not that I think she'll do a bad job, I just think Eileen IS Kristen. Not that she wasn't Susan. I'm having a hard time explaining it but I just see Eileen more as Kristen and I'm more OK with Susan being played by SH. But we'll see. So far she's only Susan. I'm a little more nervous seeing her as Kristen. I think I'll have a little bit harder of a time, but we'll see. SH seems to be fairly accepted as Susan so far.

EXACTLY!!!! It's not even the first time that Susan has been played by a different actress so most people aren't not bugged.

 

It will be that hidden info that will be the real factor. And it is brief, but at least SH looked the part in the promo.

She does look the part. I'm trying to be optimistic she'll surprise me. I just see Eileen as Kristen so it's going to probably be hard. But who knows? LOL. But overall, IF Kristen and Susan had to be recast (which obviously she had to be), I'll say that Stacy Haiduk turned out to be an excellent choice. She deserved better honestly than Crazy Patty on Y&R. I did have a brief flash of her and the stuffed cat when Susan was petting the Marlena Barbie today. LOL. Our soaps are so nuts. I sometimes wish they weren't because it can be embarrassing, but at the same time, I love that they're wacky.

I have faith. SH did Mary Jane with layers and well with hints of crazy before she went off the rails.

That's true. It's easy to forget. She's so much more associated with "Crazy Patty". I have no doubts she can "handle" Kristen. I just don't know how I'll accept her as Kristen, if that makes any sense lol. But I'm here for her Susan. So far so good.

 

I really wouldn't hate having SH stay as Susan and ED take back Kristen someday. ED does get exhausted playing both. But they're "hers". So I wonder how it'd work out. Eileen was very classy supporting Stacy so it probably wouldn't be a problem. Who knows? Probably won't happen. But, it's DAYS and it's Ron.

    • THIS^^^   I remember this and thought it was a soap first for two heroines to compare identical storyline notes! All Springfield needed was a support group for women who gave away or “lost” children who popped up later as teens or adults. I’m talking Reva (twice), Harley, Vanessa, Selena (twice), Sarah, Jennifer, Olivia, Alexandra (twice)… How many did I miss? Once a month at Company. Buzz provides coffee and cronuts. 
    • I saw some of it. As for Dex/Trina, I think I need to see more of them, especially in an uninterrupted episode  Please register in order to view this content I have a feeling that Joss is going to end up cheating on Cam with Dex, so we'll see what happens. I just hope it's written as it should be: Joss as the villain and not Cam. I still like both Sprina and Rorina, but to me, it seems like both pairings have kind of stalled out in the last week or two. I was hoping Sprina would finally have their first kiss after their testimonies, but we got nothing. Same thing with Chase/Brooklyn: nothing. It's like the writers want to drag it out further but have no idea what to do with any of the pairings right now. IMO, it hasn't really been a good summer for GH. Or for any of these couplings.
    • My favorite part of this clip is Beth and Reva comparing notes on coming back from the dead with amnesia as a form of small talk at what looks like the Bauer BBQ. Please register in order to view this content
    • I enjoyed today's show. I thought there was some nice soapy/dilemmas being faced today by different characters. Portia and Curtis had to deal with the potential consequences of trying to wake Oz and trying to figure out how to get past Rory/Jordan to do so. I also liked Spencer having to deal with whether or not he should take the deal Martin arranged for him, (going back to Spring Ridge for 10 days or taking three months in Pentonville.) On the surface it seems like a good choice, but in a way, I can understand why Spencer would want to cover for Victor. Victor for all his faults, does genuinely seem to care for Spencer and has tried to help him as much as he could. (Regardless of his methods). Victor is the type of person that may always try and help Spencer whenever he gets into trouble. So, I could see how Spencer might be trying to look at the big picture and protect him. I hope that Spencer doesn't really end up in jail, even though he signed the documents to go to Pentonville today. I also hope that Trina doesn't go to jail either. Though I do wonder if they may actually do a storyline where her and Spencer end up in jail together like Shawn and Alexis did. I hope not, but you never know. I also liked Jordan asking Rory if his feelings for Trina will interfere with his assignment of guarding Oz. I thought that was interesting as well. I also liked Trina's interaction with Dex. It was pleasant and I think they have chemistry together.  Did you get to see Trina's/interaction with Dex? I think they have nice chemistry/spark together. Dex was giving her some looks. I am interested in hearing your thoughts about their interaction (whenever you see it), because you also like both Sprina and Rorina like I do. Rorina gets a lot of backlash on Twitter, but there are those of us on various sites that like both pairings. Might have to act Dex/Trina to the mix too, lol, though I do believe the show will probably do something with him and Joss. (And I wonder how Cam will factor into things).
