If things don't improve on the COVID front by September, which I don't think will happen, I'm sure they'll continue doing the show remotely. I'm sure Ana would continue to be available for extra days if that happens.
Yea..the talk shows have to be much cheaper then soaps...one set, a whole bunch of product placements, and studios to pay the show to have the hosts fawn over the stars..and, no crazy fans writing in constantly.
I do think that soaps are of course living on in other platforms an d that the its interesting that Amazon has jumped on the bandwagon of "serialized stories" with is Vella product. The stories are even called "episodes" and you get the first three free and then you need to pay for the rest. They are written by Indie authors and who knows how good they are, but I think it would be interesting if someone like Nancy Curlee would write a continuation of ATWT and or GL as I do believe there is still an audience for that. P & G tried to do that with GL but it was on Twitter and didn;t work well.
I know the continuing print stories thing has been around since Dickens (and most likely before) but its interesting how Amazon is packaging these to close to being soaps..tho of different types...(love stories, mysteries, humor.)
Simone went out of her way to come up with routines no other gymnast would dare to attempt so what does the abuse she sustained [at the hands of these people] have to do with this?
I guess my problem is using "mental health" as a reason. I would be ok if she just said "I was making too many errors so I needed to let someone else take the lead".
Mental health concerns is now the go to?
