What a horrible name to choose.  To her nieces and nephews, she is literally "Aunt Flo."  LOL 

Now that explains why they made it her name.

I can confirm that Karla Mosley was taken off contract. Her last contract airdate was 3/19.

 

It was inevitable after JY was discarded. It was only delayed by KM's leave. As soon as the legal requirement after her return was met, we knew she'd be gone. But nearly all of us saw this coming with the Marlon reveal and the PSA storyline that boxed-in Rick/Maya. A real shame.

 

The Myrna/Rick/C2/Widge months got me hooked back in. The Myron ploy was disappointing because B&B had finally managed to have a diverse leading actor - and one that had languished on canvas for years - so not an instant character forced on the audience.

Hope - Now Thomas is "in love with her" after being back for 2 weeks.  This show is so horribly paced.  Hope is bubbly and excited with Thomas and his Son but gets home to Liam and is a boring dishrag pushing him away.  I'm tired of hearing Hope cry and sob about Beth, and not falling asleep and passing out, and then the bawling when she's around Liam.  

 

Any time the Liam/Steffy/Hope triangle pops up again after this - Hope can die as far as I'm concered.  Was always a Hope fan but this version is just so depressing and off-putting.  I hope Liam goes back to Steffy, and then never let Hope find out the baby is hers.  Let the next 20 years go by and let her never know.  And send her off with this version of Thomas that isn't working. 

 

The chemistry isn't there from what I see and I never thought I'd say this...and I know he had a first couple tough days with the emotion he had to give - alot to ask with this actor, and I liked him on Y&R and thought he might be a good choice for this role.  But Pierson Fode had chemistry with Sally - I don't see chemistry with him and this version of Hope...it's already not working.  Pierson Fode was better.

 

Hope:  "My body is in mourning".  LOLLL.  Hope is a whore.  She'll be banging Thomas by the end of next week.  LOL.  She's been frigid since the 'death of Beth' but will get fired up over another man just like every Logan girl very quickly. 

 

She wants him to be a Father to Kelly, and Phoebe.  Such horrible writing - a couple months ago she whored herself out immediately and notified Steffy she was fightin' for this man regardless of Steffy's baby.  Now she keeps pushing for them to be back together.  He should leave and not look back. 

 

Thomas:  "I'm DOING this.  I'm BREAKING UP HOPE AND LIAM!"  So contrived.  So awful.

LMAO!!! 

 

nuThomas doesn't seem to have chemistry any of his potential love interests.  But I have to say he sure should have been cast as Ronn Moss's Ridge's son.  They not only share a resemblance, but this guy's acting is probably just a notch better.  He does most of his (over)acting with his squinty eyes, just like Ronn Moss did.  His line-delivery was pretty close to Moss's during his convo with Sally, too.

 

Sorry about Karla Mosley.  I never really had a huge problem with her, though I agree she was more interesting as a beyotch and the trans story as written totally ruined her.  I'm more or less disappointed that we're losing the last (mostly) developed and established Black character/family on the show with the slightest bit of interest.  Everyone else is just expendable glorified day players, door mats, or talk-tos for Hope/Liam/Steffy or whatever Forrester or Logan flavor of the month (Flo at the moment).

Sorry about Karla Mosley.  

The writing was on the wall which is a shame since she was daytime's only trans character. If they were going to write her out after her maternity leave, they should have left her married to Rick. She could have just come home to LA for a visit and went back to Paris to be Rick. It negated their whole love story for no good story reason.

I agree.  What was the point?

GH has a trans character, Dr. Terry Randolph. She's just recurring and is used sparingly.

So Thomas thinks Liam always brings Hope down, yet still wants that same man, reunited with his sister and "their" girls...ok

Didn't they have something that, at best, can be called a tiny fling?

 

I don't like the new Thomas. I'm surprised the actor is only 4 years older than me. He looks older than he is.

I guess I'm getting old and losing my memory as I can't recall Hope & Thomas being in love.  

I honestly don't remember them being a thing either.  You'd think they shared some epic love affair or something

Same for Taylor pushing for her son to go after Hope, who she has blamed for destroying Steffy and Liam's relationship, just so those two can get back together.  The twisted logic on this show is off the charts.

Quinn to Wyatt:  You should be with Flo!  She's a LOGAN! 

 

Since when the hell has Quinn been a Logan fan?  Good Lord. 

 

Kelly be walkin' and talking at 6 months old wearing her best Easter bonnet and dress. DAH DAH! DAH DAH!  This version of Thomas needs to be dead faster than Austin on Y&R

I love this show because I love seeing how bad it can get...

    • I agree with y'all, and I guess that's why I'm easier on soaps and other shows if they don't necessarily get it right. I'm not easy on them enough to still watch or support something I don't like, but I do think that "trying" is worth something. After being excited for a short while, I ended up absolutely HATING Luke/Noah on ATWT and thought they were embarrassing. But other gay men, especially the older ones who'd been watching the show for years and years, loved them. So while they just made me roll my eyes, I understood that they meant more to others. Still wanted that relationship blown to smithereens for something more fun, but y'know. GLEE. I hated it. But what it did for many gay youth can't be denied. I know that someone will reply that there were other majorly problematic things with the show, but my point is that it served tons of gay kids who otherwise would not have gotten that confidence boost or feeling of community.
    • Entering April and...   ...GOOOD this show reeks of propping. I cannot with the loops the writers are writing in to keep Peter around, Why is Dr. O who has went toe to toe in hand combat with Anna...IN A MASK TO BOOT or Carly who has pulled every trick in the book or even Maxie who has fake a pregancy and used to be the crafty schemer herself so scared of this nothing burger of weaksauce son of a GH villain I like? Uh...NO!!!   Yeah, that scene of Cameron picking on Jake was a bad one. WL has done better. That said, I do like there is family conflict in Liz's family. Those boys have gotten along for too long.   So is the next event we are building up to is the opening of Curtis's club? There is enough story building going on at least to have things happen.   I am just sadden that a month ago, there was momentum going on and climaxes and it fell flat in two weeks.     
    • I am shocked at you.  LVP is cohosting that new dog show with Rebel Wilson, has VPD still in the works, and at least has one more project in the works I believe if memory serves. And VPR is still in the air...especially now that Kandi is about to start filming that OLG spinoff show. It's why I had to post that tweet. No matter how things go, LVP STAYS hustling. Kyle could NEVER.    And Andy Cokehead's ratings are not much better at times so Twitter can stay pressed. Please register in order to view this content 
    • I suppose the premise of “LGBTQ” as this hodgepodge community is what I’m questioning. That one letter of the acronym is interchangeable with the other. I understand it from a political coalition standpoint—strength in numbers—and there’s certainly been overlap in term of cultural spaces, but for the most part, the only thing these letters have in common is that they transgress commonly accepted ideas of gender roles and identities. EDIT: I know they aren’t discrete, mutually exclusive groups. Trans people can be gay, lesbian, bi, etc. as well.   But in general I agree. Soaps are broadcast TV vehicles and have to be as broadly appealing and narratively nimble as possible. It’s why streaming services (or smaller cable networks) that can nurture niche-oriented content are so groundbreaking. A gay-male soap on Netflix or Hulu wouldn’t have to cater to a mass audience and could take more risks.
    • Well on the other hand, if the logic is the community is very broad and diverse so you can't represent it in its diversity, the notion that all that is needed is that there would be *some* representation takes precedence hence the logic here. We also have, frustrated as we may be, to understand the tough spot they are in. If they have budget for thirty contract players and the number of pairings LGBTQ character can have is necessarily limited, LGBT character have a lower return-on-investment in terms of story for a producer. So expecting every strand of LGBT being represented is setting the bar unrealistically high.
