Still boggles my mind how brave it was to give that HIV story to Robin.

 

I remember being floored watching live as a kid when Robin was given her results; she was only a few years older than me.

And she sounds like her now too!
 

Jon Murray referred to MEB as “the queen of daytime.” Okay, Jon.

 

 

Did you hear her podcast interview? LOL pretty much. 
 

Haha. The whole reality show segment is unnecessary given their at a very low point themselves these days.

LOL they are sort of writing GH’s death certificate here. “How can you keep up with General Hospital when you’re binge-watching Orange Is the New Black?” 
 

I mean.... true?

I think only the first two seasons of The Real World were sort of real, in terms of situations/human reactions. After that? It was just exaggerate EVERYTHING and make the housemates act as disgusting as possible.

 

But the very first cast will always have a place in my cold heart.  ;) Helps that I was about their age when that first season went down...

Absolutely. And she was a little pipsqueak just a few years earlier. I just can’t believe they were even allowed to tell that story. And bravo to Michael Sutton, who I‘d never thought much of before.

I remember talking to my friend on the phone and my mother picking up the receiver in the kitchen to share the news that Robin was HIV+. My mother sounded devastated.

 

I love seeing so much of Erika Slezak.

I had the laugh at the irony of seeing Shelly “a woman’s touch” Altman express sadness for the soaps cancellations when I feel she’s contribute to some of of those with her writing.

And she basically said that young writers would take her job from her cold dead hands when she spoke on a soap writer’s panel years ago. She was like “F**k you, noobs. There aren’t enough jobs to go around!”

This has been so, so bad. The Luke and Laura segment has been the highlight and that's not saying much. The direction is all over the place. The clip quality is atrocious and there are too many people to say the same things. The segments are running way too long to say nothing.
