I Gotta Feeling....

We here at the Pine Valley Podcast are thrilled about the new developments at our beloved All My Children. "Chuck Pratt Out, Lorraine Broderick In" are just about the greatest 6 words I've personally ever heard uttered (next to "It's a girl... It's a boy!", of course).

We celebrated by writing a little ditty, so rather than try to top Shadow's ass-toot (more like brilliant) post last week, we'll just sing our joy. It speaks for itself, I think.

We hope you'll chime in too with your joy, here.

-------------------

I Gotta Feeling
By Ashley B. Mendoza and Jordan Hudson (sort of)

I gotta feeling
All My Children is gonna be alright
Now that Pratt’s gone it’s gonna be out of sight!
How I prayed for this day with all my might!

Such a Pratthole
Ruined my show
Kiss my ass Pratthole
Oh please just go

Lorraine is back
She’ll save the day
Now if just Fronsie
Would go uh-WAY!

ABCs on the attack
Now that Chuck Pratt is gone
We can get our show back

I feel so damn happy
Even Aidumb I’d blow
Now if Randi and Liza
Would be the next to go!

Pratthole is gone
Mazel tov!
Dutch oven Pratthole
Just get get -- off

Get off my show
You piece of dung
Let a real writer
Show how it’s done!

Lorraine do it
Lorraine do it
Lorraine do it
Lorraine do it again!

Lorraine do it
Lorraine do it
Lorraine do it
Lorraine do it again!

Lorraine do it
Lorraine do it
Lorraine do it
Lorraine do it again!

Lorraine do it
Lorraine do it
Lorraine do it
Lorraine do it again!

Can't wait to hear all the ass-toot comments on the AMC transition and everything else that Ashley and Jordan choose to expound on at the Pine Valley Podcast. Should I be preparing to watch AMC again? I only do what you guys tell me to.

Really, it's true!

jason said...

Woohooo! A new podcast is something to be thankful for!
Mel, yes Ke$ha is the singer of the one song where she starts rapping and turns into the incredibly catchy chorus, which always gets stuck in my head. Her song Tik Tok remindes me of Lady Gaga's Just Dance.

Shadow said...

Ashley said: "Pratatonic! I fart on you! I dutch oven you...every night!"

Cracks me up every time I hear it -as if for the first time. Where else do you get that kind of honesty? This podcast had me at dutch oven!

Terry in Toronto said...

If not for the PVP I wouldn't even get the dutch oven reference. Thanks for edjumacating me.

And I do agree that Ashley and Jordan should get their own talk show because I know that you'll be real no matter what.

Mel Got Served said...

Ahhh OLTL was so good yesterday. It always ends with my dying for more. Kevin overhearing David, Neville shipping off to tell Clint the truth, Kim getting the job with Clint. And of course Matthew/Danielle/Destiny- OMG so good.

I even liked Gossip Girl last night.

I read AMC recaps and they sound like crap. How much longer will Pratt's scripts air?

Ms.CaseyShameless said...

Great podcast! The song was beginning song was amazing, good job Ash!

As for NuNuColby, I have to agree with Jordan, I think she was a lot of potential.. I felt as if she held her own with Ms. Melissa Claire Egan. However, if she doesn't improve within the next month, my opinion will most definitely change. Regardless though, she is better than Brianne Moncrief.. Well a piece of my dog's doo is better than her. But hey! You have to give them credit for trying.

And I have to come up with a new picture here being that I no longer need to spread the message of "Fire Pratt". I guess I will keep it until his name no longer appears on my screen to really drive the message home... But I will be working on one.. However, I don't think "Fire Crapputhers and Frons" will fit in that tiny little space.

Anyway, Thanks for the new podcast you two. Your witty observations always brighten up my day! Ciao!

Ps- How is everyone feeling about MODERN FAMILY. Personally I think it just keeps getting better every week, but I know the opinion of the show differs from person to person. So let me know what you think!

Crystal said...

Just finished listening to the podcast and I made some notes as I was walking through the grocery store listening.

Jordan, I used to have the biggest crush on Dr. Drew and everyone always thought I was weird.

Ashley, I LOVE Patsy Cline!

I totally agree on the co-sleeping you will get no bad comments from me on that one. My DS coslept with us until he was 7 months.

Twins are tough! I have little twin brothers that were 18 years younger than me and it is more than twice the work. I think twins are exponential, lol. They didn't sleep through the night until 11 months old. yikes! As far as the naps you have to just lay them down and let them cry it out a little bit. I would separate them if you can for naps it might make it easier. I did the thing with my DS when he transitioned to his own room where I would sit in the room but, not look directly at them and then each time you go closer to the door. It worked really well. I never did the rocking to sleep or anything like that.

I have only liked John McBain with Cassie D. but, she could have chemistry with a blank wall. That girl is good! Maybe they could recast John with Thorston wouldn't that be hilarious.

I do not blame you for ragging on AMC. Sometimes you have to show a little tough love! I also think Nelson Branco had a lot to do with it too (along with all the online backlash). So again, thank you Canada! 8)

OK got to run, I have to clean my house now.

Mel Got Served said...

Even when I hated Days of our Lives during the Salem Stalker I still tuned in for a while after. I'd rather watch every fan favorite get murdered then return from the dead before tuning into AMC. Even Passions (early years) is better than AMC right now. I SAID IT!

Casey Shameless, I loooove Modern Family and yes, it is getting better every week. Fizbo!! My family and I were in tears laughing.

Scrubs is back tonight!!!!!!!

Shadow said...

I'm in a quandry about a new avatar too. I've kind grown accustomed to Pratt's fat head with the giant X. I hate to rag on Frons right now considering all the changes going on. I'll wait until his next big blunder before I go with the Frons X. It's tricky. I tried to find a good picture of Lorraine so I could draw a halo or wings on her, but couldn't find any pics of her. Anyway, I'm sticking with FatHeaded Pratthole until there's no trace of his idiocy in PV anymore.

BTW, I fastforwarded through several, ok weeks, of AMC episodes last nite and it was all shit. I don't see anything redeeming. The storyline with Amanda and David is especially warped. It's sick even. Pratt should get a therapist because I can't imagine anyone finding that entertaining. The concept alone is unsettling. Who wants to watch a person be victimized over and over again? That goes for both Amanda and David. David never really gets any peace of mind. How many kids of his can they kill, abort, miscarry, sell? And Amanda is just sort of being mentally if not physically violated and controlled. It's more like Pine Afghanistan than Pine Valley. Womens and victims rights groups should be pissed.

The Stuart/Adam thing just killed it for me. And Annie and Scott are losing their magic for me. They just can't overcome the crap Pratt is giving them. Scott is starting to overdo it like Frankie did a while back. And how horrible for Adam to have realize not only that he murdered his brothe but to also have to watch his wife make out with his nephew and then watch her miscarry. And we had to watch the housekeeper scrub miscarriage blood out of the carpet with a sponge!! I wonder who came up with that little nugget for us to enjoy? Love in the afternoon? Hell no. Blood stains on the carpet from a miscarriage!! And that poor actress who plays the maid. How would you like to get that phone call? "Well, we're going to give you a scrubby and some Comet and you pretend to clean a miscarriage off the floor. People will just love it."

Who would ever go to a party at Chandler mansion now? Can you imagine how long it would take to find a blood free spot to stand and enjoy your hors d oeuvres? "Let's see I can't stand here because that's where Stuart was shot, but I can't stand here because there's a fetus stuck in the carpet..."

Not even Melrose 1.0 was this sick and that's what it is--sick. Pratt's writing passed bad and even offensive months ago. This is some twisted, evil kind of crap. I just wish they would put the show on hiatus until after the new year.

Ahh, I feel better. Hadn't had a rant in a while. Probably because I haven't watched in a while.

Elizabeth said...

Loved the podcast guys! The song was one of the best you've ever done!

Jordan,
I completely agree with you about the AMAs. Gaga, Kelly, and Carrie were all good performances with impeccable vocals, especially Kelly.

Also, I know that you mentioned that you don't watch Ellen's talk show, but you definitely need to see this:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XIvhs1DLHEI

and this:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=q0M2u-cu0so

Too bad you're taking a break from Y&R, but I completely understand. The stupid surrogate storyline they are doing with Cane, Mac, and Lily is beyond boring, and it's disgusting what they are doing with Adam seducing Sharon after all he has done to her (switching her baby with Ashley's). Hopefully the show will pick up some steam in a little bit and you can tune back in again.

By the way, if you're going to be my wing man I suggest we high tail it up to Canada ASAP!! :)

Love you both!

~Elizabeth

i am smilin' so big with ya'll!

Crystal said...

Just watched today's show and the end I had a bad flash back to JaLu's panties flying off in the casino. It is a good thing I have a strong stomach!

jordan hudson said...

Casey Shamless. Modern Family LOVE IT and yes just like The Middle and cougar Town they keep getting better every week. Also better Off Ted returns next week and scrubs tonight I'm in heaven

brtedi said...

Hi, Ashley and Jordan! :-)

I've never heard the two of you so very happy in a pod cast--Congradulations, reguarding 'the changing of the guard', on AMC!

Jordan, imo, “Lucky” was boring , on GH. Jacob Young. fares much better, as “JR”.

Ashley, don’t mess with “Bo and Nora”— ;-) They have a complex, intense, history-imho. This is just me, but I think those characters are fabulous—To see Hillary B. Smith and Robert S, Woods working together, in this storyline, just makes me happy! (I missed out on “Bo and Nora’s” initial romance. I’ve waited about five years to see these characters, as a couple. :-D )

I’d bet anything Thorsten Kaye will be paired with Susan Haskel on OLTL, in 2010.

I still think, “Natalie” will end up with John Mcbain---And I await the day Gina Tognoni to returns, as “Kelly Cramer”—Yay!

brtedi

Shadow said...

Seriously, Better Off Ted is coming back? Loved that show. Yeah!

Ms.CaseyShameless said...

"Let's see I can't stand here because that's where Stuart was shot, but I can't stand here because there's a fetus stuck in the carpet..."

HAHAHA Shadow you literally slay me! I don't know how you come up with it!

Jordan,
I am loving The Middle! You are actually the reason I started watching it because you kept raving about how funny it was and I couldn't be more grateful. The cast is so talented (with the exception of Patricia Heaton.. I mean she isn't bad, I just feel like this character is Debra Baron part 2.) And thank you for telling me Better Off Ted comes back next week. I had no idea! I'm so excited!! ABC is really dynamite this year when it comes to comedy..

Anonymous said...

I'm almost scared to listen to the podcast because I know you must be overjoyed.

I've just become (again) a regular viewer of ALL MY KIDS again and I have to say there is only one thing I enjoy on AMC other than the opening credits and that's Scott and Annie. I hope that if anything changes that those two get together.

I got to share something that I posted on twitter (I'm www.twitter.Xanderdash btw)right b4 the old heave ho:

"Yea thou I walk through the valley of Pine I will fear no Pratthole."

Finally the reign of terror ends...for now

PastaMom said...

Great Podcast Guys!!! Thanks for all your hard work!

I have to agree with Jordan - NuNuColby was way better than NuColby. She showed more emotion than Bianca M. in 1 scene than BM showed all her time on the show. (do you think her initials mean anything???LOL

I am loving OLTL.
The shower scene last week was hot!!!!
I wish Blair would go back with McBain.

Ashley I agree with you - if someone was attacking a person I love I would be enraged - not like Todd acted.

MODERN FAMILY is the best new sitcom on TV - right up there with Glee.

OLTL FREAK said...

Looooooved the podcast, The song was a hoot I wish I could download just the song onto my IPOD so I can listen to it everyday

The Brody and Jessica shower scene was amazing and sexy, I wish Brody would come wash my hair and loofah me up like that when I have a bad day at work

Glee & Modern Family=== HIGH-LARIOUS


If you haven't watched OLTL today u really need too...Loved Todd & Tea

Mitch Laurence creeps me out what he did today actually scared me (but it was awesome)....LOL

Terry in Toronto said...

Jordan you are most welcome in Canada at any time and kudos to you Ashley for co-sleeping. More families on the planet co-sleep than don't.

Great podcast as always and thanks so much for persevering even though you had to do it twice. We appreciate your efforts.

Crystal said...

I just keep listening to the GLEE soundtrack. I can NOT wait for the next one. It comes out on the 8th!!!

Mel Got Served said...

Just saw on Twitter that Ambyr Childers (Colby) is pregnant. Congratulations Ambyr!

Shadow said...

Glad it made you laugh Casey! Appreciate the kind words!

jordan hudson said...

BXGal time to stat a new petition Florencia Lozano nominee for best actress 2010 OLTL. I'm going to say it right now that if she does not get nominated I'm going to be so piss. She can win if she gets nominated. No other actress has had the year that she did with the range that she has had to played. This woman is outstanding in every way. I worship her as an actress. yesterday 's OLTL proved it. Work with me people. Also the thanksgiving episode of OLTL had me crying like a baby. Sigh!

Also love Scrubs 2.0. Was very concern when I heard that they were changing the overall concept of the show and while I do miss Carla and the gang. It was great having a few of them make a brief appearance to ease us in. The bottom line is the heart of the show is still there and it's about people learning and growing. I loved the new cast with the exception of the new female lead who is to be the new JD. I'm hoping she will grow on me. She is not Dead behind the eyes if anything I think she is trying to hard and it doesn't come across as natural but the rest of the cast gets the humor and is so there. Now with Better off Ted back next week ABC has 5 amazing comedy shows.

tvcat1 said...

Enjoyed your riotous podcast Ashley and Jordan. You finally got what you and a lot of people wanted- Pratt gone! I hope it's not too late to turn the show around. This is such a critial time, with the move and the major cast changes. When is the new writers stuff going to appear though, probably not soon enough. Then they have to deal with ending Pratts stories and deal with who's gone and who's left. A sliver of hope now though.

Question for the both of you, don't they have to change the executive producer too to really change the show?

Mel Got Served said...

Jordan, I LOVED Scrubs last night too. I was planning to watch one episode before bed, but stayed up to watch the second since I enjoyed the first so much. Clearly, James Franco's brother, Dave, as Cole is the new young star. His "wingmom" had me laughing out loud. Love it. Can't wait for more!

Anyone here still watching SYTYCD? I'm worried for my girl Ashley on there. Her, Ellenore, Jacob, and Russell are my 4 faves. I also didn't think Mollee and Russell had any chemistry in their lyrical jazz. I could see Noelle going home tonight just cause I don't think viewers are inspired to vote for her.

^check it out PVP peeps! Its a special NYC All My Children event. From what I see, La Lucci, Debbie Morgan and others will be there to celebrate AMCs 40th.

Marcus said...

After today's episode, I'm just not going to watch until after the new year. And maybe, just maybe FEMA will have cleaned up the disaster that P-Ratt left behind. He's made the usually fun loving Jake into such a sniveling "whoa is me" S.O.B. That I really don't care that he's packed his bag. GO!! RUN JAKE!! My only hope is that they rip it off like a band-aid. OLTL is off the chain, as usual. Mitch Lawrence is a fool strait up and down like six o'clock!

Amelia said...

OLTL was FAN-FREAKING-TASTIC today (12/2). This is truly daytime's BEST soap!

Arizonagal said...

Random thoughts:
Am I the only one who sees a striking resemblance between Daniella and Matthew? They look like twins.

Poor little Destiny, the green-eyed monster has her and who can blame her?

Kudos to Chrishell for her dynoMITE performances during one of the lamest story lines on AMC EVER! No phoning it in for this woman, she just knocked it out of the park in every scene. I'm watching her and thinking this chick deserves so much more than to deliver this tripe.

NuNuColby shows promise. Haven't seen much of her, but so far, no vacant stares and hunched shoulders.

Jordan, I know you love Chelsea Handler. Are you going to be peeking at her Playboy issue this month?

I haven't posted in a while and I haven't heard the podcast yet but I wanted to drop in and say Happy Thanksgiving and early Christmas to everyone!!

JnA08 said...

You think LB is going to get rid of Blandie??? Because I am on the edge of my seat waiting on that. I am so sick of Randi and her crap!

Love the song!!!! Love the podcast!!!

Bxgal said...

Ashley and Jordan, thanks for shouting out the petition I made to fire he who shall not be named. I was home sick one day watching AMC and I just couldn't take it anymore. I guess brian frons couldn't either.

haha. Jordan, I think you know more about Florencia Lozano than me. But I'm definitely up for it because she is an amazing actress. I'm actually surprised that she's never won before or at least nominated.

also, I too, am loving Lady Gaga's new album!! I LOVE Alejandro!!!! and of course, bad romance! its so rare that you like every song on an album nowadays!
anyone else going to one of her shows in NYC in January? I'm so excited for it! I wanted to go to her show in NYC last March, but I was busy.

Crystal said...

Joe from Blues Clues on OLTL...yay or nay?

Shadow said...

Crystal, better Joe than Steve. Steve got sort of goofy after he.left the show. "Heres the mail it never fails it makes me wanna wag my tail every time I yell MAIL."

Elizabeth said...

Dare I say it....NuNuColby has been on for a few days now and already she has shown ten times the expression as Mongrief! She's really starting to impress me. I know some people thinks she's DBTE, but I think she's way ahead of Randi in acting ability already!

Alejandro said...

Does anyone watch Friday Night Lights.Did anyone watch Wednesdays episode on Directv, it was so intense and powerful. Zach Gilford (Matt Saracen) truly impressed me and deserves an emmy next year, all the critics on ew and tvguide are agreeing. If only AMC was this well written.

Crystal said...

NuNuColby...less stinky crap is still crap. Yes much preferable to NuColby but, still. I will go with drowsy behind the eyes, I thought that was an apt statement. She kind of looks like the old NuBabe to me so a little creepy with her scenes with JR.

Speaking of...I love how no one can cough on a show without it being a life threatening disease.

And, I am sorry this is going to sound mean but, I will preface it with saying that I am no prize myself. JR would never be with olive oyl. Redic! She looks like she is the babysitter or something.

Shadow said...

Marissa always has that doe-eyed, glassy-eyed, dumbfounded smile on her face as if to convey that she just smoked a doob. Talk about drowsy behind the eyes. It may just be the writing (good chance), but the character has no snap.

Ms.CaseyShameless said...

Haha Marissa does always have that stupid smile plastered on her face.. I liked her when she first came on the show, but her performance is always so one note. She always does that weird whisper talking with that silly smile.. Even when she is supposed to be yelling..

as for NuNuColby.. I still think she is getting better, albeit, slowly, but I think she is still getting her footing. Anyway, I like her. lol

flashdancer said...

You are both total geniuses! I love your podcast and I love your happy song at the start. Prattastrophe getting fired was the sweetest early x-mas present!!!

PecanSandi said...

A certain song from The Wiz sums MY feelings up nicely!
Everybody look around because there's a reason to rejoice you see
Everybody come out & commence to singing joyfully
Everybody look up & feel the hope that we've been waiting on
Everybody's glad
Because our silent fear & dread is gone
Freedom, you see, has got our hearts so singing joyfully
Just look about
You owe it to yourself to check it out
Can you feel a brand new day?
Can you feel a brand new day?

Shadow said...

Nice selection Sandi!

Watching Tuesday AMC. Did we really need to see JR's bloody snot rocket?

jordan hudson said...

OMG VENICE VENICE VENICE IS HERE.
What the F&^% SHO HBO make this a series. I have to say I can't get into these web series how can you can do something in 4 to 6 minutes. After seeing Martha Byrne's Gotham.I was like huh. But Venice. Great writing, Acting. To see Otalia finally go at it. Galen Gering gives the best performance of his career in two minutes.
LONG LIVE VENICE

Ms.CaseyShameless said...

JORDAN! I totally agree! Just watched Venice this morning and I thought it was brilliant! Somebody definitely needs to make this a television show ASAP! Can't wait until the next episode. It's amazing that a little 6 min. webisode can leave me wanting more as much as Venice does. I can't wait until next Friday!

Shadow said...

What is Venice about? Are there characters from GL in it?

I'm sure Gotham will get better when Turdby shows up. Ha!

Ty said...

OLTL was so scary!!! Poor Nick! And I almost cried to see Joe from Blue's Clues. My heart nearly broke.

As a gay(ish) man myself, the danger is all too real. The threat of violence or confrontation is relatively high, even in a place like NYC, where we think people are progressive. It just proves that no matter how many lesbians kiss, no matter how many gay characters are on TV, no matter how much people say they are tolerant, there is still a virulent bunch who would kill a gay man if they could.

Just recently in Puerto Rico, a transgender man was brutally killed,decapitated and burned by someone he met up with for a sexual encounter.

It's a scary world. I am just glad Frank Valentini and Ron Carlivati have the guts to tell these kinds of stories in daytime. We have seen them in primetime and movies, But I think it's important that daytime audiences see this as well.

I always keep my eyes open. And whenever I am out late, I try to have someone with me.

Shadow said...

So everybody said Tuesday's ep was uncharacteristically decent. Our satellite went out so I you tubed it. The scene with Opal and Zach talking about Myrtle was good. Poignant, sweet, moving conversation between two characters connecting--despite the guitar porn track in the background. Just shows what history and good actors can do. Even though I didn't love the music, it was better than listening to people speak Pratt's words.

Jalu was looking much hotter. Her hair is done, less black, even her hands looked smaller. She's acting better. She and Tad are growing close again. Mercifully the deal with her and Zach is over.

Nice watching Zach read to Ian. Ian looks more like Frandi's baby than Zendall's baby if you know what I mean.

Everything else all week sucked. Jake/Amanda/David is so bad its infuriating. David's fake dying is horrendous--there are so many holes in the bs anyway. I feel for Chrishelle and RPG though, they are workin' hard to make something out of it. Vincent bugs me endlessly, but it's the material he's given not the actor.

So we got a touching Opal, Zach, Myrtle moment and then tons of bald, snot rocket blowing JR, Horseteeth Marissa, Bailey, Dying Dave, ugh. Instead of being bombarded with Rancid, now we're bombarded with Bailey--a character I don't have the slightest incentive to get to know or care about played by a very limited actress.

At least we had some Dr. Joe. Any Joe time is good time in my book. Wish they'd actually give him a story for his last hurrah. And I totally don't buy that Joe and Ruth Martin would move away from Pine Valley, the house they built and paid for, and their children and grandchildren. I can see why Joe would retire from PVH, but they would never skip town.

PRATT IS FIRED!!

jordan hudson said...

So we will be on daytime confidential soon.

Mel Got Served said...

OMG OLTL was awesome Friday! When Ross came out of the hospital room with Destiny at gunpoint, I was shocked. Did not see that coming! I'm going to try uber hard to be spoiler free on OLTL.

The scenes with Nick and Amelia were great and it was heartbreaking to see Nick getting jumped. I only recently really got hooked on OLTL (have always followed), but I did always feel bad for Nick cause he did have such strong feelings for Kyle, but Kyle's heart is with Fish. I hope they can keep Nick around in some capacity (hopefully not as a triangle- get him his own man!)

Am watching last night's SNL and am so impressed with Blake Lively. She has a knack for comedy and was a great host. Something another certain blonde this season lacked.

Jersey Shore is a hot mess of a show I can't get enough of. I actually went to NJ this weekend and we spent the whole weekend quoting it and making fun of the cast.

Laura said...

Great podcast, thanks for the shoutout. Great news. Luke says your DC confidential interview is up Monday. Yeah two Mondays in a row with my favorite people.

I loved hearing Jordan screaming like a little girl on the podcast. I watched Thursday, glad to see Dr. Joe. But I am using that horrible episode as a baseline to see if things improve. How stupid JR finds out he has cancer and won't tell his wife, but David tells his baby Mama he is dying but he's not. Redic.

OLTL has been great. Y&R, not so much. I agree with Jordan on this. GH has improved. AMC is not watchable. But I am glad the Pratthole is gone.

I think all signs on OLTL live point to Thorsten Kaye returning.

He was okay on this show. I did not even watch the end of the Kendall/Zach/Aiden story? What happened.

I agree NuColby is okay. A step in the right direction.

I hope everyone has a great Holiday season. I am so far behind at work and home, it's not funny.

I am loving my Glee CD, and I can't wait to get Volume 2 this week. I will miss this show so much on hiatus. But at least ABC has some good comedies.

Can't wait for the DC show.
Listened to the last podcast again while driving home from a baby shower last night (1.5 hour drive). It was just as funny the second time. 8)

Mel Got Served said...

Whoa! Just read that Crystal Hunt was fired from OLTL! Wonder if Stacy will be recast or written off. Don't get rid of Kim!!!

Shadow said...

Rumor is spreading that Amanda is being recast. Can't say I blame the show. LOVE Stauss but she wouldn't re-sign. Soaps used to recast all the time. I thinl it would help storyline continuity if they tey recasting rather than abruptly making a character go crazY or drive over a cliff in a wedding dress. Fingers are crossed maybe Stauss will change her mind. I think they should recast Bianca and Kendall. Got to have the Kane women on contract.

Ty said...

Shadow! I heard this too. I already found a recast...I am not sure of the actress' name, but watch this Youtube Video toward the end (1:27 mark).

This actress is almost a dead ringer for Crishell Stause. At least they can get someone who looks the part.

Amelia said...

Welcomed my beautiful baby grl a wk ago tomorrow. :} Gabriella Elisabeth.

Watched OLTL today and all I can say is:

Kish was HOT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Thus far ABC is doing much better than CBS.

Shadow said...

Considering what happened at AW and GL, why would ATWT hire Ellen Wheeler? Don't get me wrong, I loved her as Cindy Parker but she's now Producer/Director. I don't get it.

Shadow said...

I mean she's no Producer/Director

Mel Got Served said...

Congratulations Amelia! I hope your Gabriella wasn't born in a tornado like Binx's!

Amelia said...

ROTFH Mel ~ No she wasn't. A beautiful SUNNY day.

CASTING NEWS!!!!!!!!!!!
Laura Bonarrigo is returning to OLTL as Cassie. She confirmed on her FB page. 1st Gina back as Kelly, now Laura back as Cassie ...... Kramer women unite! Yah! LOL

Amphitrion said...

The last podcast was sublime. Thank you guys so much for your hard work and the smiles that it provides.

Everyone has probably seen this or will see it a billion times by 2010, but it is kind of cute. I have the ABC Holiday Album from a few years back (that’s a huge geek tell right there folks!) Click here to go to Jingle Bell Rock.

jason said...

Congrats on the baby girl Amelia! =)

Idk what to say about OLTL that hasn't been already said, it's been amazing. It makes me sad that OLTL isn't doing better in the ratings because it's been so good, and if it got better ratings it would be sending a message to Frons. I'm surprised how far they went with Kish, to bad they got inturpped!

Amphitrion, I also have the ABC Daytime holiday album! It's really good. Who knew Vincent Irizarry was such a great singer.

Mel Got Served said...

OMG! Bitchy Bangs is coming back to OLTL!!!! Wonder how long she'll be back.

jason said...

Just wanted to add that I dislike how Todd is already calling Dani "his daughter." I don't buy this on Soaps when within one second they automatically claim their kids, they didn't know they had.

Shadow said...

Hey, who knew the Brody guy from OLTL could sing? He's a cool dude. The rest of the folks sing um, not so well. Cute though.

jordan hudson said...

Ameila,

Congrats on your baby.
Love Jordan

As The World Turns being cancelled is depressing for the future of soaps, this makes me really worried for OLTL. My poor Grandma the only two soaps she watched (GL and ATWT)are cancelled.

jordan hudson said...

Does not surprise me. I could have sworn when news of GL being axed broke, it was stated that ATWT would be renewed for one more year only and that would be the last renewal. Which to me meant that it would be axed next year and that's what happened.

I won't say that I'm happy about this. There are tons of people who will be unemployed and fans who still love and watch the show who will miss it.

With that said, this situation is similar to the what is going on at ABC. You have one show GL which turned itself around and was giving the viewers what they wanted and it was axed in favor of a show that was spiraling out of control ATWT and keep them on another year. This OLTL and AMC.

Douglas Marland must be spinning in his grave with what has happened to the show. Hogan Sheffer brought back some of the respectability that Marland gave the show. I was hooked for almost four years. The Goutman who I lost all repsect for just did not seem to care what Jean Passadouche was doing and let her do a Pratt on ATWT. I finally gave up two months ago and unlike GL I won't miss ATWT. How can I. A show that would get rid an emmy winner Martha Byrne in favor of a beauty Queen ( Look I loved Noelle as Trisha on Loving but she ain't no Lily let alone Martha Byrne). Where they blew the chance of really breaking ground with a gay super couple, turning them into Logo's answer to old school Lifetime (when every movie was Nancy Mckeon being beaten up.) and on and on.....

This does nothing to calm my fear that Frons is planning axe OLTL in the next few months. FIRE FRONS!

Laura said...

I loved you two on the DC podcast. I am glad you behaved yourself with Luke Jordan! The four of you know more about soaps than the idiots in charge of daytime programming.

I was not surprised but sad to hear ATWT was cancelled. I remembering watching the Hughes family with my Grandma in the early sixties. Geez they just announced show killer Ellen Wheeler was there like yesterday and now it's cancelled!

I haven't watched ATWT for 40 years but they had some good talent over there. This leaves OLTL as the last soap in NY. I am afraid we will hear this news about it soon. I am keeping my Frons picture up until he promotes OLTL which I think will be never.

I am glad they are showing Days of our Lives at 5:00 CST on SoapNet, there are a few actors on there I like. But some of them have had major surgery since I have seen the show.

I heard the Bonnie Hunt show is cancelled also. So what is the future of tv if not soaps and talk shows? Syndicated game shows? Entertainment and gossip shows?

Today is a sad day for daytime.

Shadow said...

The Pratt Falls girls tweeted: "ATWT hired Ellen Wheeler yesterday. Today ATWT was cancelled. Imressive work!"

Makes me wonder if tomorrow ATWT will announce it has hired Chuck Pratt as head writer.

Laura said...

Hot from twitter 3 minutes ago.

Our beautiful Amanda is staying!


Hey guys to address the rumors-I just got word that I WILL be recurring with AMC while in LA.

One minute ago: I want to branch out and do some other things and it looks like we will be able to work together on scheduling. Great news for everyone

Best news I've heard on a bad day for soaps.

I now think Oprah needs to save the soaps on her network. A will written diverse soap wouold do well without idiots in charge.

Terry in Toronto said...

Congrats Amelia on your new baby.

I'm not disappointed to see ATWT go because I've only seen it on youtube when I was deciding if I should give up on AMC. I do worry about OLTL though because it would break my heart if that show was taken off the air and out of my life. I've only watched since January of this year when Ashley and Jordan convinced me to switch to OLTL from AMC when I was at my rope's end and I've been hooked from day one, scene one. Won't miss Stacey, hope the character is out of everyone's lives. Keep Kim to stir things up with the Buchanans. Would love to see her get in a catfight with Nora.

Happy Holidays everyone! I can't believe in a few weeks 2009 will be no more.

Love the PVP and this whole community that Ashley, Jordan and yes Taylor (from the old days) have joined us together in. Peace and joy to all.

Mel Got Served said...

Everyone rejoice! Chompers (Palmer) is coming back! http://www.soapoperadigest.com/news/breaking/

Shadow said...

So happy to hear about James Mitchell's return to LaPine Valley. I wonder how Pratt will have Adam kill Chompers?

Mel Got Served said...

Poisoned Dentabond.

Crystal said...

Amelia, congratulations!!!


This show is making me sick. I think Aidan must have caught the 'crazies' when he was hanging out with Annie talking through the vent. ;)
Why do I keep watching??
Oh I know, so I can listen to the podcast informed.

Crystal said...

Laura said...

I just heard about Chompers from Discodan. Yeah, could they please have Daisy on too. I think they need to give a good farewell to James Mitchell for him and the fans.

I'd rather look at a picture of Grandma Kate, Phoebe, Myrtle, and Mona than the crap that's on lately. Much more emotion and way more talent.


I can't stand OLTL. I am so glad Kimmy is staying after Crystal Hunt leaves.

Watching my Jane Lynch on Bonnie Hunt. They are old friends from Second City. I used to go see that a lot.

I think Soaps should go full circle and come back to Chicago. Oprah's studio will be empty. Taylor Miller is here, Neva Rosins, and a great community of actors. I think maybe Oprah could save the genre with a diverse soap opera. She'll have her own network.

Otherwise I need Ashley and Jordan to teach us Spanish on the podcast so I can watch telenovellas!

Norn Cutson said...

i saw FISH on the 14th st uptown platform last night.
he was gettin' on the 1, i was gettin' on the 2.

Laura said...

The View has a special AMC episode on Friday. Glambert is on tomorrow. Of course I have to work. But I can catch it on Hulu. I don't DVR much, hubby has it filled up.

Crystal said...

I am going to be so sad when Crystal Hunt leaves...did I just type that?!

Here is a quote from ME from March
"Oh and I HATE Stacy (OLTL) and not in the good bitchy kind of way."

LOL oh how things have changed. I can't imagine Kimmy without Stacy.

Norn Cutson said...

have ya'll seen this web soap DOWNSIZED?
i really like it!
the first episode is silly but it starts getting emotional drama in episode 2!

I just saw a glimpse of an episode of AMC and I happened to see nuColby. I will be honest, I couldn't focus on her acting because I was too focused on how she looked. Maybe it was the fact that JY was bald, but nuColby looks old(er), than the other nuColby.

Did they SORAS her when they did the recast?

Courtney

Elizabeth said...

Any GH fans out there? This week has been so awesome!!!! Rebecca has finally become a good character now that they are getting rid of her. That scene where she busted into Liz's house and sat on the couch with those kids was hilarious!!!! Also, Steve Burton taking Michael down a few pegs was amazing yesterday. The actors on that show are really bringing it even if the storylines aren't the best.

PastaMom said...

Great job on Daytime Confidential Podcast guys!!!

You all sounded so intelligent (not that we're surprised) and you had a lot of great input and ideas.

Anonymous said...

Another random item to note. The View is making a big deal about AMC leaving since they were across the hall from each other. I wonder if they will make as big of a deal since they will have OLTL as their new neighbors????

Courtney

Mel Got Served said...

Good news peeps! Nelson's Suds Report is up and he said Soaps in Depth said that Jill Larson has been put on contract is making the move to LA!!!

Shadow said...

It's true!! So happy. Things are looking up at AMC. Can't wait till the writing stops sucking! Now if Randi would just disappear!

Ms.CaseyShameless said...

Yay!! I'm so happy Jill Larson is making the move. I have a soft spot in my heart for her and I was really going to miss her, but now it looks like I'm not going to have to!

As for GH, Elizabeth I completely agree. The scenes with Rebecca in Liz's house were great and Jason putting Michael in his place was brilliant (I loved when Jason said he was acting like a little bitch lol). Steve Burton really worked it out in those scenes.
However, am I the only one who like Liz and Nicolas together? I personally think they have GREAT chemistry.

Mel Got Served said...

I'm reading the ABC Sneak Peek for AMC and here's what I'd like for an Erica story. Erica wants to save Madison and makes her her protege. But then it turns into an All About Eve situation where Madison starts to become a star maybe. Then of course, Erica wins in the end :)

And PS this David's will sounds like a direct rip-off of the Days of our Lives Stefano's will story from like 2002ish (that was dropped and remains one of the biggest unsolved storylines, IMO).

OSusanna said...

Watched the episode from last week where Adam's verdict came in. I just don't understand this show anymore. NuColby is beautiful. Her acting is not atrocious not great. The problem with the character is that she is Adam and Liza's daughter. She should be an ass kicker. JR has gone back and forth between business tycoon in the making, sensitive lover and alcoholic wannabe murderer. So he's a mess but not a throwaway. Colby is pretty much a blank slate. She came on as a teenage criminal and runaway. She could be a ruthless tycoon in the making. Cold hearted. She could try to help Adam take over Fusion since apparantly no one is running it and turn it into the hip young company it was supposed to be anyway...sell to the young set, etc. Give her a fashion/cosmetics blog, something like that. They had a good idea with Fusion Green actually because it was timely but what ever happened to that? Marissa needs to go and JR and Colby could be a formidable duo. Bring Petey back, lose the awkward weirdo persona, keep the computer savvy aspect and have him turn Cortland into a high tech company, software developing, whatever and renew the big Cortland/Chandler business competition. And bring back the older Martin kids and SORASed Santos kids for them to mix it up with romantically (keeping in mind the family relationships ie Colby can't date Haley's kid). All My Children, the new generation with nods to their parents and grandparents.

Just an idea, but since I haven't been watching for a while, I could be saying something they did or that wouldn't make sense anymore...I know the Kanes need revamping too but I haven't come up with their plan yet :)

Oh and Liza just needs to leave town, along with Bailey, her boyfriend and that baby and forget that mess ever happened

OLTL FREAK said...

I like Elizabeth and Nik too
Casey Shamless they are hot

Loved Jason calling Michael out someone needed to do it and its about time

OLTL ROCKS!!!!!!!!!!

Ms.CaseyShameless said...

Thank God I am not alone OLTL Freak! Haha I was beginning to think I was crazy, but I am GLUED to the screen when those two are on! They're smokin'! Hope they keep them together for awhile because I'm loving it...

As for AMC (This is an All My Children blog right? I forgot ever now and again lol). I am not watching it right now, but I am not going to lie, The View special made me feel very nostalgic and gave me hope that AMC will get better after the new year...

OMG I was obviously under a rock recently, because it was when I casually started reading this blog that I happened upon my true CHRISTMAS MIRACLE!

Right now, I am doing the insane happy dance to learn of all the fantastic news: no more Pratt, no more Aidumb, a new, new Colby, and the return of Julia Barr!

I can finally take the pins out of my Charles Pratt voodoo doll and turn back in to AMC.

Thank you, Father Clarence, wherever you are! AMC is on its way back :-)

OSusanna said...

I liked The View special too. One question though - if Agnes Nixon could show up for an interview, frail as she is, how the hell did she not know what was being written lately and how her show had been ruined?

I firmly believe Pratt's firing was orchestrated by some vets who refused to go to LA unless he left.

Watching one episode and The View special made me sad. I really miss this show. I so so so want it to be good again. I really miss watching it. Just the theme song made me sad because I remembered happy times.

Tyrone said...

Here are some pics from the AMC wrap up party on 12/11

http://stevenbergmanphotography.com/ximagi/search.php?sort=celeb&assignment_id=615#page=1&view=gallery&key=

Nat's Guy said...

Everyone looks so happy and festive in those Holiday/Wrap Party pics. Alicia is like "Yes, I'm free!" What in the name of Dynasty is Chrishelle wearing?! Not sure if Cady McClain can pull off that red hair. Susan Lucci and Julia Barr are beautiful. Am I the only one who thinks the pic of Michael E. Knight kissing Michael Lowery is hot? MEK seemed to enjoy it. Just saying.

Elizabeth said...

Okay so did Susan Lucci give Bobbie Eakes the name of her doctor or something. Ms. Eakes looks amazing!!!! Julia Barr looks fab as well. Ebabe on the other hand needs a sandwich and Denise Vasi needs to just go away. Also, where is NuNuColby in these pics? Did they recast her already?

Crazy_Daisy_Designs said...

Elizabeth, I totally agree about Bobbie's look. Damn, that woman looks hot!

Crystal said...

Nat's Guy, I thought Crishelle looked stunning. Of course she could put on a paper bag and look stunning. It is very retro. I don't care for it myself been there, done that but, for her it is 'new' ha ha.
I though the Michaels were cute, those silly boys.

Alicia looked so beautiful! Sorry Jordan, I don't usually think she looks that good. She needs to eat a sandwich but, really pretty in the photos probably closer to what she looks like in real life if that makes sense.

Crystal said...

Anybody watch Ugly Betty? I totally want Mark and Daniel to get together. I think Mark has a bit of a crush. 8)

Nat's Guy said...

I watch Ugly Betty. My friend and I were just saying today that Daniel and Marc should get together. I like that they're boss/assistant now. The show is good this season.

jordan hudson said...

Sorry that I have been crazed. Will be back in action soon.

I'm loving Ugly Betty but never stopped. I think the show has grown with every season and the characters have changed and grown, that is what makes the show so special. I love Mark and Daniel together even if it's just as co workers. lol I also love that they seem to be addressing Justin's sexuality.

Now that they are moving to Wednesday the ratings will go up and ABC can stop treating it like Nightime's answer to One life to live.

Judith Light leave your hair long. Your look 20 years younger this season and like yourself. Almosty as if Who's the Boss went off the air just a few season ago. Love the actor who is playing her long lost son. He was on GL and AMC and was the guy who kissed Chuck Bass on GG. He is hot and can act make him a regular.

Gossip Girl lost me again what is with the story lines all being two episodes its like you need to have A.D.D. to enjoy this show. Serenea has fallen in love with how many guys in the span of 11 episodes. I stayed because I enjoyed her with the senator. Aron tevit I think that is it is SO HOT!

Last week i was laughing so hard from Scrubs, The return of Better off Ted, The Middle, Modern Family, Cougar Town, Parks and Rec. Ugly Betty even 30 Rock made me laugh. It was of laughing my ass off then crying with Glee. Glee is one class act.

I will say that I must be the only Gay man in the world who thinks that Broadway actor is a troll. he looks like Frankenstein JR. the one on 30 Rock I refuse to remember his name. He is an awful actor. I will admit he can sing. But that face the hair and the bugged out eyes. and he just sends out a vibe, I had to endure him on Ugly Betty, Lipstick Jungle. I think the problem is the way that Ashley felt about Vanessa on OLTl is how I feel about Cheynne that is it Cheynne Jackson. his toto is dirty and smelly.

FRIDAY NIGHT LIGHTS soon on NBC damm you lucky Direct TV viewers

Arizonagal said...

Well holy crap, does anyone here watch Dexter? the season ending just friggin blew my mind big time, can't stop thinking about it.

Glee - another fantastic season finale. I am just fascinated with Sue Sylvester. What a complex character and Jane Lynch is PERFECT!

I know the Pratthole is not gone yet but AMC seems to be a bit better lately. I'm behind, still have most of last week to watch.

Alejandro said...

Jordan FNL will be worth the wait, trust. I hope they dont edit though or else ull have to get the dvds. This season has been riveting w some great acting from the vets.

Mark said...

Well, I am actually watching the show today and am confused. Why is Annie going to be on trial? The last I watched, Adam confessed and I thought he did it because he was on drugs from David. Plus, I thought Annie was protecting him.

New writers, please hurry. This crap makes no sense.

Mark

jordan hudson said...

Arizonagal

I heard from Papa and Mama Hudson how good Dexter was...I have to watch all this season on Demand will do it in the next week. Can't wait.
I too think Sue Sylvester from Glee is one amazing character and only Ms. Lynch could have brought her to life.

Alejandro I wondered if they did that last season. I sure hope that we who are watching on NBC are getting the entire episode that was aired on Direct. I can't wiat for FNL

Elizabeth said...

OMG Daytime Confidential is reporting that the Writer's Guild Award nominations were announced today and the AMC writing team (including Pratthole) was nominated!!!! WTF?

Ms.CaseyShameless said...

Speaking of Glee, I finally decided to give it a shot (just in time for it to be off the air until next year lol), but I am LOVING it! All the characters have such depth and the writing is right on par. I don't know why I was being such a snob about watching it before, but I am glad that I changed my mind! And Jordan I completely agree, Ms. Lynch is the only one who could bring the character of Sue to life. She's a genius.

Arizonagal said...

The return of chompers, how great that is. Jill Larsen is making the move? Suddenly I have some hope for the future of AMC. I was so glad to hear the DC guys, Luke and Jamie?, mention than Randi is also in their opinion, DBTE! So many people in agreement and yet she seems to have a lot of fans. I've read on other sites all these congrats to her for her engagement and her career being on the fast track. Who are these fans?

I wonder if her character will continue to get the support from the new regime and when the heck is the new crew moving in to clean up Pratt's mess?

Shadow said...

I hope Pratthole doesn't get nominated for a Golden Globe too. WTF was WGA thinking?

OLTL FREAK said...

Sooooo EXCITED that GLEE , Jane Lynch , Lea Michele and Matthew Williamson were all nominated for Golden Globes!!!!!!!!!

OLTL was great yesterday

I am so in love with the girl who plays Dani, she looked so scared I wanted to jump into the TV and rescue her she is an amazing find

OLTL FREAK said...

Ooooops I meant Matthew Morrison ....LOL

Mel Got Served said...

Shane has frosted tips now- like father, like son.

I want Kimmy to be my BFF.

I joked on Twitter last night about Snoop Dogg's upcoming visit to Llanview. I said too bad it wasn't a couple of months ago cause Snoop and Matthew could've really partied. Is that wrong? ;)

I'm mostly pleased with Golden Globe nominations though I wonder if there's a special edition of Entourage the foreign press receives, cause that show sucks. Sorry Entourage fans! When other amazing comedies like Big Bang Theory or Nurse Jackie lose out to a bunch of Hollywood douchebags that haven't progressed since season 1, I get angry!

Kate said...

I'm just now listening to the recent podcast. Jordan, you making me cry! Those Bo & Nora professing-their-love scenes were brilliant - an amazing payoff for long-time Bo & Nora fans. I cried during them. And hearing you talk about them had me remembering how great they were. I loved those scenes! Jordan, you said that that's the kind of scenes Tad & Dixie should have had... Your comment made me cry because you're so right. *Sigh*

Kate said...

PS:

THANK GOD that freakin' Chucky Pratt is fired!! WHOOHOO!

Shadow said...

I just watched 2 weeks of AMC in 45 minutes. I don't know what is up with Aidan. I didn't like him before and I can't stand him now anymore. He was boring. Now he's psycho. Whatever. Just get him off the TV.

Pratthole isn't in the writing credits anymore, so maybe that's why some are commenting that they seem some slight improvement. It does appear to me that there were a few attempts by some to actually emote empathy towards others and compassion for something besides headwounds, sperm and extramarital sex. I don't necessarily agree with it all and it's still fairly lame, but not Amanda and David in the backseat gross. And thankfully I never saw Erica and Ryan locking lips. And there was some Opal. I love her. By including her on contract I think AMC's chances got a little better. Besides what is AMC without the linguistic machinations of people like Adam Chandler, Phoebe Wallingford, Opal Gardner, and so forth? Their voices and theatrical articulation are calling cards of the show in its prime, unlike the bland, voicemail autoattendant voices of Rancid and Bailey.

Obviously the march is on to rehab Madison and Annie. The trial was ridic. Nobody reps themselves in a murder trial, especially when they are rich. Lawyer Annie is freakin' hot though. She would definitely have been the hottest girl in law school--just like my wife was!

Rancid still is horrific. Girl ain't got no skills in the drama department. She's gorgeous. If she could go mute, I'd say keep her. If she has to talk though, well, bless her heart.

Jordan, you're right. Viki does say Gzhee Gzhee. WTH is with her hair? Rex's kid is a better actor than several of the peeps on amc.

Not sure I get why OLTL is ditching Stacey now when she just got fun. Guess it's a budget thing. So many returns on that show. I miss Andrea Evans though. I still think Tina should show up in LA-PV to be close, but not too close, to LV and Viki.

Oh yeah, nice to finally see Erica and Angie in a scene together although I was amused at Erica telling Angie about her epiphany in Africa.

Hope you all are well and surviving the cold blast that has fallen upon us. I'm out of my mind busy this month. Wish I could slow December down. Too much travel and I'm way behind on my Santa duties!

Mel Got Served said...

All the soaps are on Hulu!!! Here's my theory: everyone watch OLTL on ABC.com or Hulu. When ABC sees all the hits, they'll see that OLTL DOES have a fanbase.

AMC is available too. Once I hear it's improved I'll start tuning in again.

Arizonagal said...

Shadow, Aiden is one of the rare few on TV that you can describe as both boring and psycho. Oh and lets add creepy to the mix. This version of Aidan is truly creepy and yet somehow, still quite boring.

I am not comfortable with the way TIIC are writing him out of the PV universe.

BTW do we know WEHT Taylor? Did she just join Bobby in the attic?

On another note, I gotta say I am sick sick SICK of Zach acting like a friggin A-hole. This act is getting old. It does save me time though since I can and must FF thru any scene with Zach and Ryan.

When Ryan was sitting in Annie's hospital room watching the trail I wanted to wring his neck. Why didn't Annie get a guard or someone to drag his tired ass out of her room. God that guy is a dick.

Shadow said...

AZ when Tad and KWAK were talking yesterday about "getting back out there" and how Tad has tried recently but failed, I almost thought he was going to mention Taylor but he didn't. Guess she got called up for duty. Seems like that would have been easy enough and provided some closure. Maybe her contract was up and she just told Pratt to effe himself. Maybe one day we'll hear the real story.

What I want to know is WTH happened to Elizabeth Rodriguez? There was never any explanation. She was on contract then she wasn't on contract and after a year of hogging scream time she too just vanished. Maybe she met Taylor and are off on a wild lesbian adventure in Puerto Rico! C-aylor. T-armen. Taylor Sugar. Who knows. ER was at the NYC AMC party. She was in the pics. Does anyone have a clue? Aside from the end when Pratthole stuck her with Jack and put at odds with Erica, she was pretty entertaining. Still can't believe they pissed that away and of all things kept foster sister (whatever) Rancid. You know Frankie is way more of a Carmen Sugar Morales guy than a Randi The Beautiful But DBTE Talentless Hooker.

Arizonagal said...

Well sounds like TPTB have plans for Tad and they don't involve Krystal. Not sure how I feel about that since it seems they are steering Tad towards Jalu. Rather see Tad with Krystal than JaLu. Hopefully with the move to Cal TPTB will corral some actress with the talent and personality to mix it up with Tad.

Something else I just thought of. Since we have a new headwriter on board, does it mean that Denise Vasi's future on AMC is not as secure as it seems?

Loved seeing Madison back on the canvas as I am a big Stephanie Gatchet fan. More Maddie, less Randi!

Mel Got Served said...

Arizonagal, I asked Nelson Branco about Randi's future as well and he said Denise Vasi was a Frons hire, not Pratt so she'll likely be around.

Arizonagal said...

Someone pinch me, I hear that Idina Menzel is coming to Glee, along with the return of Kristen Chenowith. Gonna be a lot of divas hanging out at WHMS! Recurring roles here or regular cast members?

Crystal said...

Good idea Mel, I am going to run OLTL in the background whenever I am online. 8) I mean I DO watch it so that's not really cheating is it? I am just not a neilson family.

Mel Got Served said...

That's my same exact feeling, Crystal. I'm not Nielsen, but web video just show who streamed them, not what stupid Nielsen household streamed it. Plus, by showing there's a web presence IF (and a huge IF) for some reason soaps couldn't survive on air, the networks could see that soaps CAN survive online.

Arizonagal said...

I can't seem to get thru an episode of AMC w/o yelling at the hypocrites in PV. Are we supposed to forget about the misdeeds of the idiots who inhabit this town? Dayamn! It's not like this doesn't happen on every soap, but on AMC it's just so blatant, it's glaring. So many people in PV finger pointing at everyone but themselves. On OLTL John McBain is covering for Natalie but he's not huffing and puffing and getting in everyone else's face while he does it. He seems tortured by his deed, he's not self righteous. Not so in PV. Courtesy of soap central:

Hypocrite #1 - Jesse Hubbard, who gets my goat whenever he talks about bringing Annie, or anyone else, to justice, when he should be behind bars himself for: Had Tad plant pills at Wildwind to frame David Hayward; Shot and critically injured Tad Martin; removed Henry North's body from the scene of a crime, put him in a car, and sent the car over a cliff; Helped Kendall hide and avoid serving jail time; Threatened to kill Madison North

Hypocrite #2 - Ryanss, telling anyone who'll listen that no one should ever let their children near Annie because she's dangerous, when Ryan is guilty of: Tied up Greenlee to prevent her from going to see Juan Pablo; Strangled David Hayward until he blacked out; Took part in an illegal "fight club"; Staged his own death by plunging a motorcycle off of a cliff; Violated a restraining order that Annie had against him; Pulled over for driving erratically and sucker-punched arresting officer; Assaulted a police officer and held a gun to his head; Destruction of property/Disorderly conduct; Assaulted a police officer; Arrested for lying to a police officer; charges later dropped; Arrested for obstruction of justice; Arrested for breaking and entering; charges dropped; Aided Kendall in fleeing from the law; Trapped Scott and Annie in an elevator at Fusion

JR telling Adam he won't live in the Chandler mansion with Annie because she's nuts - pot kettle black. Some of JRs felonies: Assaulted David Hayward; Laced Babe's drink with a mood-altering drug, resulting in overdose that nearly killed her; Filed a false police report saying that a man kidnapped Bess; Had a videotape altered to make it appear as though Babe had threatened to kill JR and used the tape to blackmail Babe; Clubbed Jamie over the head with a wrench; Held a gun to Tad Martin and threatened to kill him; pinned Jamie under a motorcycle; Bribed a judge to terminate Babe's visitation rights; Driving while intoxicated and hit Amanda Dillon with his car; Kidnapped Krystal and tied her to a chair; Nearly killed Kendall and her unborn child while attempting to kill Babe; With Jamie, locked Josh Madden in a meatlocker; Attacked Amanda at Fusion, ripping off her clothes; punched Jake Martin at conFusion; knocked out David Hayward with an oar; Tied up David Hayward at Wildwind; Held a gun on David Hayward; Arrested for kidnapping Little Adam; Attacked David Hayward and stole his gun; Held Adam Chandler at gunpoint

Zach so full of self pity, anger at Kendall, and just generally being verbally abusive to everyone, when he has: Turned off the power and destroyed Greenlee's eggs, which had been frozen; Duped Annie Lavery into talking to a psychiatrist that he had paid off to give testimony against her in court; Shot Josh Madden in the head, rendering him brain dead; Lied to police, saying he was driving a car that forced Greenlee off the road; Threatened to kill Adam Chandler; Punched Ryan Lavery in the face; Plead guilty to the murder of Stuart Chandler; Bribed/paid off a hotel manager to get into Henry North's room; Blackmailed Liza Colby into taking Kendall Hart's case for her murder trail; choked Assistant District Attorney Willis; Fired a gun at Adam to frame Annie Lavery; Aided Kendall in fleeing from the law; Helped Kendall hide and avoid serving jail time; Complicit in Aidan Devane's kidnapping of Annie Lavery; Assaulting a police officer; punched Jesse Hubbard.

Ms.CaseyShameless said...

Does anyone know the exact date Rebecca Budig returns?

DancingElf88 said...

Haven't been here in forever due to internet complications. Just had myself a OLTL marathon and OMG!! I love me my Kimmie. Bo/Nora are so beautiful. Kyle and FIsh are hot and Ross is (was) a nut job and a half.
I love the actress that plays Dani. But poor Destiny.
The Evans family definitely need to be on contract.
I have no idea what's going in AMC.

Shadow said...

OK, so this is really cool. On Twitter tonight CRISHELL STAUS posted a message inviting people to send her questions and said she would answer them. She's pretty active on Twitter--always cheerful and upbeat, but tweets about refreshingly normal stuff. Anyway, I asked this question and got a short, but exciting response:

Chrishell7 @SHADOWUSR Have you ever listened to the PineValleyPodcast or read the blog at pinevalleypodcast.com? >Yes ;)

She said YES! With a winking smiley face! So excited to know she's checked PVP out. I wish for a Christmas present she would post something on the blog too!

Of course if she's been here, Brianne Moncrief may have been here too. Ouch.

Shadow said...

And then our Mel said:

melgotserved @Chrishell7 So glad you listen to the Pine Valley Podcast (and maybe lurk on the board)- we LOOOOOVE you! We <3 Amanda!

One question: what is <3? We love her less than 3 of something?

jason said...

Shadow the <3 is suppose to look like a heart. It took me a while to get it lol.
I'm so happy Chrishell listens to the Pine Valley Podcast! She's been my favorite since she first started. I miss the days when Amanda was a vixen.
OMG Daytime Confidential has an interview with MR. OLTL Ron Carlivati! I can't wait to listen to it!

Who here watches Jersey Shore? I feel like I'm being left out for not watching it, maybe i'll start lol.

If @Chrishell7 is reading this blog post, then can she one day, can she answer me these questions? how is that baby not JR's? why is it everytime JR and her hook up there's always some crazy out of LF bullsh-- happening to mess them up, they have the hottest chemistry out of everyone on that show, it would have been nice to see Amanda Dillon w/ Adam JR Chandler, actually it would have made sense since they've known each other since they were kids and had contreversial backgrounds, but whatevs. Yeh Chrishell answer me that one, one day, like Jake comes in all the sudden I'm suppose to buy that? While we're random pairing lets just bring Leo back for NuNuColby..I mean GMAB. Things I hate about this show, that's just a small bit of it.

Shadow said...

She's pretty hot with everybody actually. Remember when she was doing Jake on the boat in that Army jacket? She was hot with JR too. To me, with her background and Mommy Issues, Amanda has some common issues with Erica.I liked it when Amanda worked for Erica. Erica was friends with Janet and Trevor so it made sense that she would take care care of Amanda.

JERSEY SHORE RULES LOVE ME THE ITALIAN BOIS

Mel Got Served said...

Not to be a self promoter, but I added Jersey Shore to my blog's Reality Rundown ;)

Crazy_Daisy_Designs said...

Can anyone tell me if Ryan and Erica every actually hooked up??? That was the lamest pairing on daytime!

DancingElf88 said...

I watch Jerse Shore and I do indeed love it. Snooki is my girl and Vinny is a cutie.
Just watched OLTL...FIRE! That's all I have to say about that

jason said...

A good interview with Ms. Florencia Lozano: http://tinyurl.com/ykegnau

Just watched yesterdays OLTL, I wasn't bored one second. This show is on fire and it disappoints me to no end that its not doing better in the ratings, though it is doing good in young women demo.

So I've tivoed two episodes of Jersey Shore tonight...can't wait to watch. Snookie was a hoot on The Wendy Williams Show last week.

Crystal said...

Daisy, yup they are 'hot and spicy, the best ever'. That's a quote from passions, hee hee. Yeah it is pretty lame. Ignoring any 'Daddy is sleeping with Grandma' ickiness, they just seem like friends with benefits but, it's not even hot.

Shadow said...

Haven’t done this in a while.

THURSDAY’S AMC.

Shit! It said “written by Charles Pratt, Jr.”. They may as well just say “Today’s episode is also going to suck”.

This group David has assembled at the Yacht Club is a bit rag-tag looking. Crishell looks beautiful, but Angie needs to pull back a little on the hautness.

It actually hurts to watch Amanda be this stupid. It’s not your fault Crishell. It’s the Pratthole talking.

Erica’s penthouse is still absurd. She’s fabulously wealthy and famous and lives in an efficiency in Pennsylvania? She should live on an estate—buy Phoebe’s place or something. Besides, I think of a “penthouse” and think of something besides plastic ficus trees and plastic shutters. And virtually everyone that comes over has to talk to her on her bed. Do Oprah or Martha Stuart entertain guest on their beds? Hell no. Why not just give her a nice office like she used to have and avoid this set altogether? Or give her a den or something without a giant bed in the middle of the room.

I don’t like Kat. She’s not even hot. She’s tattooed and pointless.

ACK! Ryan just slipped Erica the tongue. I think my retina just detached! Damn you asshole Pratt!!

OLTL Commercial: I’ve always been a huge Mitch fan, especially in the beginning with Tina, but man that dude is looking old. Hey, wait, if looks old I must look ol…Scratch that. Mitch looks awesome.

FRIDAY ON AMC:

David apologized for everything. What a douche.

WTF is Marissa wearing around her neck? Looks like she grabbed something off the Christmas tree.

Aidumb clocked Zac over the head. How many head injuries has that been this year? Pine Valley should have signs at all its city limits that say something like Welcome to Pine Valley. Caution: Hard Hats Required In This Area”.

Adam sounds a little more like himself calling Amanda a gold digging liar you are. She has a tendency to go astray…”. David Canary is an acting god.

Oops. Guess I got bored and fell asleep. I tried.

Crazy_Daisy_Designs said...

Crystal... wow. How could I have missed it? How ever will Ryan choose between Erica and Greenlee? What a dramatic and exciting 30 seconds that will be!

Shadow said...

Well at least if Ryan and Erica are doing the horizontal pokey we don't have to worry about her getting pregnant and having another baby on the show.

Alejandro said...

Jersey shore is a hot mess and i love it, it makes college look tame. Everyone loves it at U of Iowa, haha. We all agree that the guy that knocked out Snooki his life is over. I love Snooki's dancing and the situation, haha. I wanna go to the Jersey Shore for the summer now, if thats what its like.

jordan hudson said...

Okay How delicious was OLTL Friday. If you needed any proof that OLTL is the best Soap on the air then watch Friday.
From the incredibly talented younger cast of Dani, Matthew and Destiny. To the beautiful Father and daughter moments with Starr and Todd. The incredible scenes with Tea and Blair. Where again the writing team never misses a beat as Tea acknowledges the loss of Ross as a human being and someone who at one point in her life she loves. To Blair taking responsibility for her part in Ross's fate. To the most unexpected moment these two women who are enemies and yet in many ways alike comforting each other. The comic duo of Kimmy and Nigel. Seeing the veterans over 40 get major air time. Bo, Dorian, Mitch, Nora and Jerry Ver Dorn who showed why Clint is still needed and relevant to the show and while Clint Ritchie originatted and will always be Clint. It's better to have Clint on the canvas then not and I think he would be proud of Jerry keeping the character alive. Intense mature and real dialogue as Clint confronted Nora. Breathtaking and daring performances from Jerry and Hiliary.
OLTL should be the last Soap Standing on any network.

Ms.CaseyShameless said...

Currently watching James Franco on SNL. Just got through his monologue and he is basically just making fun of GH.. Why the hell did he do it then if he's just going to make fun of it and it's actors. Pretty rude if you ask me.

Sorry just had to blow off that steam and I figured this was the place to do it.

Mel Got Served said...

He looks like Gilbert Gottfried when he squints and acts.

If he thinks being on a soap is bad, maybe he should re-watch his episode of SNL last night cause it sucked. Besides the Weekend Update (and maybe the kissing family), the episode was a horrible trainwreck.

Ms.CaseyShameless said...

I totally agree Mel, SNL sucked last night. The only really good part was Weekend Update, the Snookie impersanation was hysterical! And I am a sucker for the Mark Wahlberg talks to Animals sketches... But besides those two it was not good.

Laura said...

I saw the Jersey shore people on Jay Walkers on Leno. How dumb can people be. I may have to watch it. Trainwreck TV. What channel is it on?

Wishing everyone a wonderful Christmas and a Pratt-free New Year.

I hope John and Natalie both go to jail forever on OLTL. Sick of them both. But the rest of the show has been good, over Rex though. Team Schuyler all the way.

I started listening to Ron C interview on Daytime Confidential. I will have to finish it up.

In Glee news, Jonathan Groff from Spring Awakening is joining for a while. He is a former OLTL'er.He played the recurring role of Henry Mackler on the ABC soap opera One Life to Live. His storyline about a school shooting on the long-running soap opera was nixed due to the Virginia Tech shooting in April 2007, and he is no longer on the show.[6] Henry was killed off the soap on May 8, 2007 after having a drug-induced heart attack while driving a car and subsequently crashing.

This is from Ashley's favorite source Wikipedia. I can't remember the details as well as Jordan!

I think Glee would be great for Kathy Brier. I miss her so much.

Enough rambling, Christmas stuff to do!

Alejandro said...

Laura Jersey Shore is on MTV at 9 Thursday nights. I think they just finished episode 4, i think the episodes are on MTV.com. It is a trainwreck, but a good one haha. Very entertaining mess. Jordash, new podcast Monday, we miss the astute commentary, u watch so i dont have to, i havent watched a full episode forever, its like torture.

Shadow said...

Too sad about Brittnay Murphy's death at 32--so sweet in Clueless and hilarious in Just Married with Ashton Kutcher. Heart attack in the shower. Found by her mother.

I pray when I die it's not while I'm naked somewhere. I don't want to get found naked by somebody then poked all over while I'm dead and naked by paramedics then loaded into the ambulance and driven around town naked. Nope. If you ever find me and suspect I'm dead and I happened to be naked, please put some clothes on me and then call 911. Thanks.

Anonymous said...

@Shadow, I agree Chrishell is hot w/ anybody but if you throw in that scene w/ Jake and the army jacket...I'll combat that scene of hot w/ one scene w/ JR that didn't even involve clothes being taken off, end of an AMC montage Amanda decides to team up w/ JR to take down Adam, JR is looking out the window the lights are off, he feels a hand, she appears and they lock lips. That scene had pretty much everything Amanda/Jake don't, sometimes I don't have to hear over and over how you love this person, it becomes bleh to me, and that reminds me of the Amanda I fell in love with, the scheming bad girl that showed up in JR's bed when she first returned to town, not this dunce I'm watching b/c of Pratthole.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hVIQK5bJBjM

I'm sorry but Jake's never done it for me, but enough about that.

I've been hearing wierd rumors that the new writing is set to make Madison a major player but it's not in Frankie's RL, it's in Ryan's w/ Greenlee. Supposively Erica leads her to him, did you hear any of that?, b/c tbqh love the actress and I could learn to love this character if she's matched against Greenlee. How would Greenlee vs Madison make you feel?

Shadow said...

You're getting no argument from me Anonymous. I hate how Pratt dumbed down Amanda and immediately tore Jake and her apart. Plus, Jake's gotten kind of whiny. Again, not his fault. It's Pratthole's craptastic writing. RPG looks generally irritated by it all to me.

As for Madison, I'm still trying to reserve judgment. I think I like SG, but I really disliked her blackmailing the Hubbards and all that shiz. It was so out of the blue and one dimensional. Now they are trying so hard to rehabilitate her but by victimizIng her, and I have a problem with that too. Why couldn't she just be a raving bitch instead of an abused daughter? Honestly, I don't like women as victims. I like strong women-maybe flawed-but driven like Erica. I think the portrayal of women as victims and damsels in distress is one reason soaps have fallen on hard times. Women just aren't all scheming ho's or abuse victims. Some are just mean or misunderstood, but they aren't all irrational jealous basket cases in formerly abusive relationships who spread their legs to whoever they are directed. I think the victimization and simplifications turns a lot of people off. So my longwinded answer is. I do think Madison/Erica/Ryan/Greenlee have some possibilities, but having said that,I worry it is setting us up for another year of "Who's fucking Ryan now?" with Madison and Erica stepping in for Kendall and Annie.

Shadow said...

A little more...

I would prefer something just completely new for all of them. What I really want for Erica is for her to realize that she's 60, a grandma, and make a mature decision to end her inappropriate infatuation with Ryan and choose a life with Jackson as her true love. I'd like to see her pursue him in classic Kane style, and then settle with him. I think a mature Erica Kane would find tremendous strength in a solid relationship and she should be rewarded with it after so many years of trying. Plus, I don't really want to see Erica acting like a teenage sex kitten anymore.

After Jack and Erica are reunited, I'd like for the Kane girls to be recast (if necessary) and see Erica grow into the void left by meddling Phoebe with Jack loving her in spite of it all but not being a pussy when she goes too far. It would be interesting even to see her share some wisdom for her daughter as Mona would to her, maybe with a twist of Phoebe just because she's Erica and we don't want her to be boring.

There is so much to tell with Erica as a mature older woman. It could be fascinating. She's just too old to keep competing with the 20 somethings for men like Ryan. She needs to use her intelligence and prowess for other purposes-business, managing her family relationships, etc.

My preference would be to SORAS Pete and hook him up with Madison and let them assume Courtland Enterprises. She could be a great foil for Opal who would be suspicious of Madison's money grubbing ways, but finds that maybe Madison really does love him. It could be a chance for Opal to realize through her relationship with Madison how far she's come from the scheming swindler she used to be and a chance to reground Opal and get her away from this psychic crap Pratt has been heaping on her.

There are just so many ways these characters could grow. I'm afraid Madison-Erica-Greenlee-Ryan will be just another rehash of the same tired stuff.

You know who I'm ready to see again? Paul Martin or Tom Cudahy or Mark Dalton--somebody with some age and experience with Erica under their belt who can be a non-sexual male confidant for Erica. Erica needs and always had that one male friend. Her friendship with Adam of late seems very artificial to me. I don't think she and Adam ever truly had the sort of trust between them that Erica had with the others who genuinely looked out for best interest.

Sorry to be so long winded. The Madison types could be fine. What AMC needs to do to get back on course is rebuild the families in a more traditional, sensical and recognizable manner--i.e. mother, father, son, daughter, sister, brother, etc. Not a ragtag team of characters living at Wildwind or Tad's house.

It's an age old recipe that just needs a writer who gets it and writes with a contemporary flair reminiscent of what is happening in society today.

discodan said...

I agree with you, Shadow, on a lot of your points. Watching what Kendall has had to sit through with Aidan, and making her such a typical damsel in distress of an uninteresting Brit. The show also needs to return back to its family core, meaning I want the Montegomery household to be a hot bed. Recast Reggie, Lily, Sean, and even bring in a good Molly, and give Greenlee a reason to live their.... thus Jack becomes the patriarch that everyone knows that he can be. Pair him with Erica FINALLY! (MAYBE IN A TRIANGLE WITH OPAL [WINK]). As far as Madison... she is a pickle. The character has gotten better, but she has no ties to the canvas to speak of, and doesn't seem necessary in all honesty. Unless they write it that the reason that James has been beating her, is the fact that she's not his biological daughter and her mother had been lying to him even in her death. I would then, play the "Who's the daddy?" storyline, with the end result being Tad... thus bringing up all of his old abuse feelings and memories, and we watch him take care of the daughter that he never knew about. Amp up the Annie/Adam scheming to the corporate level and have them take over Cambias and become Ryan's boss. Have Ryan try and scheme his way out, but have to deal with being Annie pion.

My last big thing is to age the kids for the move. Pair Emma with Little A and have Bianca send Miranda over to live with Grandma Erica and play the triangle. Make Spike and Kathy the happy couple, and pair Jenny with Ian. Trevor's too little to age, so get a new baby lol

ITA Dan.

I'm watching Carrie Underwood's special. She looks like an angel but sounds a little off her game at times. Dolly Parton is Botoxed out her mind. She can open and shut her jaw but she can't make any expression whatsoever. And the show is sponsored by some cheeseball cologne called "Bodman"--not exactly who the target audience is for that scent. If anyone gives me a gift box set of Bodman I will be pissed.

OmG I'm so ready for Christmas. No more "honey-do's".

Nurse Jackie fans, the Ausiello Report posted what I can only call devastating casting news about season 2 of Nurse Jackie. I'm going to quote a great TV prophet (Jordan Hudson) here: I AM NOT AMUSED!

And Ausiello says this casting decision, in his opinion, has really affected the first 2 episodes and not in a good way.

Anonymous said...

discodan, I agree w/ what Shadow preeched but here's where you lose me, you want the show to get back to it's values, WHY IN THE BLUE HELL! do you think ppl like Annie/Adam together? that is another perverted SL created by Pratthole who has completely turned PV upside down.

If anything you should want Annie away from the Chandlers, rebuild it w/
Colby/JR/Marissa/Adam/Scott...Annie can create drama on her own, she built her bed, now she has to lye in it. Just like Ryan, ppl may be 60/40 on him but atleast he's trying to fix himself.

The Hubbards is another core family that Madison needs to be away from, there is no benefit there other than a token interacial RL which more likely fizzles out. You have Jesse/Angie/Frankie/Randi(YES SHADOW RANDI)... LOL /Natalia & possibly Brot, they can create a good family dynamic there.

See there are family cores, the Martins, the Chandlers, (the Cortlandts are pretty much a dieng breed), the Kanes (pretty much every Kane is done there)...anyway the show needs to get better in using the loners characters like ex. Ryan, Greenlee, Annie, Randi, Madison, Marissa, that new white kid I could care less about...and the girl w/ the lisp...these are the player characters, either they add to drama or create a sweet story.

Now, Shadow I got to ask this whatever happened to that hottie that played Dre Woods? They could have done the interacial SL w/ him and Colby, that would have been reasonable & the start of a damn good love story journey ala Mateo and Hayley, now that the blackhole of Pratt is gone why not bring him back & tell that story? He's a good actor, a hottie and I think him and NununuColby would create a good rootable love story. AMC needs it's journey back, I want to feel that carpet ride again, is that so much to ask?

discodan said...

They're cut from the same cloth, and when we lose Adam to the move, you can pair her with Scott. The chemistry is really intense between the two, and as far as Adam, he seems to understand her a lil bit better.

Shadow said...

Anonymous said: "...that new white kid I could care less about...and the girl w/ the lisp..."

HA! I am rolling over here! Except for the part where you included Rancid, those are all fine ideas. Anything is better than what's been going on the past year. As for Annie and Adam, I don't love them together. I would like them more if Adam were in charge of his destiny but they keep playing him like a dimwitted, viagra popping geezer. Annie and Adam are just the lesser of all the evils to me compared to Zach & Kendall, Randi, everything related to Liza as a lawyer, Erica and Ryan, Anything Ryan, Aidan's psychotic makeover, sending Marian to the looney bin, killing Stuart, David's relentless ridiculous manipulations. I just want AMC to stop and reboot. I don't really care where anyone lands as much as I just really dislike virtually everything everyone in PV is doing. As dynamic as MCE is, it's all stupid and I just don't have much patience for it. I'm just waiting for Pratt's reign of terror to end.

I was thinking yesterday how fantastic this month could have been. While AMC and it's contract stars were caught up in the move, we could have spent Christmas with Tom, Livia and some of the other recurring players we probably won't see much. Janet, Marian, etc. Or AMC could have sent us to Paris to spend a few weeks in the lives of Bianca and Reese. Maybe Erica, Kendall, Jack or some others could have flown over for some holiday cheer. We could have seen the love story we never saw. How cool would that have been? Then rather than play out all this dumb shit Pratt started, AMC could have rebuilt, retooled and rebooted anew in January and just sort of whitewashed the past and dropped the loose ends to Pratt's shenanigans. The first thing back could have been a week of fun 40th anniversary celebrations, followed by the kick-off of the shiny new LA-AMC. Geez the moron in charge of this show is a total dipshit! There is so much publicity surrounding this show right now but if anyone takes a minute to tune in, all they see is Pratt's follies and tune back out. They did firing Pratt and dumping the Turd and Aidan. Now some management heads should role too. Julie Crapputhers would be a good start. I've seen her in some of the publicity. Why? Nobody gives a shit about her! She doesn't need to be on TV! Leave that to the cast and get your ass back to production behind the scenes!

As for Dre & Colby, there could have been something there but rumors of some pushback from one of the actors at the time and the whole teen dynamic thing was a washout. YaYa left the show and Dre just sort of fizzled out with her. Colby was recast with the Turd and matched up with Petey. Seems like, if anything, they should recast Cassandra Hubbard. I'd much rather see her back and mixing it up rather than Bailey and the white kid. I'm sure she and Natalia would be at odds which could provide some interesting friction and sibling rivalry with Frankie in the middle.

Anyway Anon, you're a crackup and I've enjoyed your posts.

jason said...

I'm going to Lady Gaga's concert tonight! I'm so excited!!

Mel I read that too! That sucks, I wish they'd give a reason why they fired him. I also read that there's no explanation where the character went. Who do they think they are, Chuck Pratt? It's disappointing.

Did anyone notice that Mitch Lawrence's hospital room number is 333? I love the detail those goes into this show.

Ms.CaseyShameless said...

Ohh! Jason, you're so lucky! Please tell me how Lady Gaga is live, even though I already know she is fabulous, I am going to see her in January and just want to know what to look forward too. Regardless, I'm sure you are going to have a good time!

As for AMC today, I didn't hate it.. Dare I say, I even enjoyed it (just a tiny little bit). I liked the scenes at Tad's house (even though it is now apparently the new Myrtle's with all the people he has shacking up there. I pray he is charging rent. ) Also, I loved the end when Kendall and Erica finally reunited (and Kendall with her boys.. adorable!). I guess I still have a soft spot in my heart for those Kane women. On the other hand though, it's Christmas and there is no mention of Bianca? Not even a phony little phone call? I mean that girl has given Erica some grandchildren too. You think she would want to wish them a Merry Christmas.. Redic. All in all, I didn't find the episode completely unenjoyable (which is the best compliment you can give AMC at the moment). Well anyway, here's to Rebecca Budig's return. Please girl, don't phone it in this time.

PS- Happy Holidays to the PVP family. Hope you all have a good one!

Anonymous said...

@Shadow, can we agree that Yaya was horrific as an actress, and took whining to another level, P.S. have you ever bumped into a black woman that spoke like her, "Mommyyyyyyyy, I don't want Daaaaad to be maaaad at meee" "Ohmagawzd" she if anything through a lump of coal at the possibilities w/ Dre Woods on the show. Then Petey out of LF...I was like o__O. Supposively the actor that plays Dre lives in Ca. I mean why the hell not, this show needs those romance SLs back, and it needs to start infusing youth for it's next generation audience to cheer on too. Not just random additions.

Saw tonight's epi. ok how many more ways can they tell me David is evil, I GET IT! oh Jake continues to whine, that's new, Amanda (sigh), Zendall just whatevs. it sucks there were 3 scenes that I loved, Father O'Flannery explaining why you can't wipe the slate clean, b/c the bad moments come w/ the good, the tie in of that mysterious tape we saw Greenlee make for Ryan before Kendall drove her off the road, I actually liked that they used that. And Erica/Ryan's scene..now in no way am I in favor of those 2 together, b/c it's just wrong, but I did lose myself in thier kiss scene, they grew on me there, now someone pls stop it.

Anonymous said...

BTW when does reign of terror end? Is it somewhere in January or February? b/c IDK who's reign I'm watching right now, I need someone to blame. Well Zendall is leaving so that's one part of the reign of terror that will end. (I'll miss ya TK but your character made me want scratch someone, better than Kendall, b/c she made me wish chloroform was a daily ritual) Now I just need to know when does the new writing kick in.

Shadow said...

Figures today had some decent stuff and I didn't watch it. AMC is still under Pratt's spell Anon, at least through some of January. Sadly, the guy who was unaware there were lesbians on the show wrote the 40th anniversary show.

As for YaYa, I know Jordan was a fan but me not so much. I thought she was whiny too and her whole valley girl thing bugged me--not enough sass to be Angie's daughter.

Casey I've got my fingers crossed for Rebecca Budig and the new writer but I am worried about her pairing with Ryan again. I don't want to see them rolling around in a pile of candles again and him carrying her around like she's Emma.

Crazy Daisy, so good to hear from you! I've wondered about you lately.

Merry Christmas and blessings to the entire PVP family. You all have made me laugh and smile all year, and I appreciate having the chance to blog with you about our beloved shows and all things Pop. Here's to another great one (with a writer who doesn't suck!)!! Next month we'll have Idol again too. Yeah!

Special hugs and high 5's to our hosts Ashley and Jordan who make it all possible here at PVP.

Mel Got Served said...

I just finished OLTL's Christmas episode. Ok, admit it: who else got verklempt when Bo opened the door to Matthew standing there and then Matthew walked into Bo and Nora's arms? Holdin' back the tears!

I did not catch the AMC holiday episode out of fear it was likely a disaster. I figure if it's Christmas with Chuck Pratt, a baby will be born in a tornado while everyone hooks up with each other and needs paternity tests.

But enough bah humbug, Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays to my PVP family! :)

Funny about the Father Clarence episode. Zach finally didn't look greasy, stopped sulking and smiled some. Kendall stoppied whining, stopped bitching and smiled too. They dropped the contrived storylines, exchanged some cute banter and were sort of fun again. (I'm overlooking the stupidity of renting a car that wasn't winterized and all that.)

Erica seemed relaxed and more like herself with her best gal pal Opal at her side. Erica is never in her own home these days and most of the time the reason for her being in certain places at certain times is just completely unbelievable, but it makes sense why she would be in her daughter's house putting up a tree and all that.

Opal's goofy Ostrich outfit made sense for the character. She's almost been too refined lately so it was good to see her OTT like she used to, but damn if she didn't have another premonition. I can't wait for the new writers to tone that down. Clairvoyance is one thing, but lately she can't even take a pee without having a vision. Remember when Dixie was haunting Adam and Opal couldn't tell Dixie was in the room? Now Opal predicts the weather and whether or not someone should rent a car.

Jake and Tad have showed some effective chemistry together in the episode, but then there was David and Amanda. Man, Chrishelle Stauss is adorable, talented, really hot, and I love the character of Amanda and what she represents in Pine Valley, but Pratt has dumbed the character down so much it's too hard to watch. Hayward has held her womb hostage for months, coerced her into car sex and now she defends him and almost champions him. Amanda is a vixen not a do gooder. She gets revenge, makes bad choices, has all sorts of mommy issues and would kick him in the balls so hard and fast he would wish he was really dying.

Did you notice that Zach's video collection consisted of High School Musical 1,2 and 3? I don't see Ian and Spike really "getting" those movies yet and if they did, well, I don't see Zach indulging them in a Sharpay musical number.

I wonder who was watching Emma while Ryan was dry humping Erica? Oddly, their kissing didn't bug me.

Tad and Liza are OK. He's big and squishy and her stature "fits" him.

It looked like someone thumped the branch the butterfly was hanging on.

Nurse Gayle went brunette. How long will it take Greenlee to get up and look smashing again? I don't suppose she have cankles, bald spots, decubitus ulcers, or any other sign of having been in a coma for the better part of a year.

So it was better in the sense that it didn't make me want to jump out the window, but for a holiday episode it wasn't that emotionally charged. then OLTL came on. The intro started with Brody and Jess but gave way to a montage of all the major characters answering their front doors and being greeted warmly or poignantly as the case may be by a dear friend. Viki just nodding at Clint and then reaching out to hug him packed more emotional punch than the last 6 months of AMC. The look on his face as he hugged her almost brought a tear to my eye. It was just one of those clever little things that rewards the long time viewer, but clearly means something to newer viewer as well. Very smart. Nora holding up the stocking for Bo was too sweet. I don't watch OLTL regularly, but they may be my fave couple on TV. Love them both so much. The old people on these shows (like me) just radiate so much genuine warmth. And what a GREAT kiss they shared! Blair and Dorian decorating the tree with Addie was sort of Grey Gardens-ish again and then Todd appeared-my heart hurt for all of them.

OLTL sort of blew it when they made a sharp cut over to its cheesey opening and theme song. That's the one thing AMC has going for it--a great opening with probably one of the best theme songs on TV day or night. Guess you can't have it all.

Ms. Casey the Lady Gaga concert was amazing! Because my uncle works for the theater that was holding the concert, I got front row tickets! I was right at the stage. I couldn't believe how close I was to Gaga. The show was a fun two hours theratical and over the top, everything you'd expect ffrom Gaga. After the show I met Nicole Richie at the vip lounge and she was really nice and we talked about Britney =). She was also the size of my hand.

Here's a photo album of some of the photos http://tinypic.com/a/1it51/3
I'll be putting more on my facebook. Anyone here feel free to add me...facebook.com/jasona1

BTW Big Love fans 2 more weeks!

Wow Jason! I loved the pictures! Now I can't wait to see Gaga in January! You are so lucky you got to see her from the front row. Unfortunately, I bought my tickets extremely late, so I'll be sitting the the nosebleed section, but it will be amazing regardless. Also Fred Phelps and that crazy Westboro Church (They are the ones who always hold up those signs that say "God Hates Fags", "God Hates America.. ya know real uplifting stuff lol) are planning on protesting the show that I am going to, so I can't wait to mess with them. It's going to be so much fun! lol And you got to meet Nicole Ritchie and talk to her about Britney.. I am officially jealous.

As for today's AMC.. IDK what's going on, but I have been enjoying the last couple of episodes. Maybe I am still high off the Christmas spirit, but the last couple of episodes have been solid(ish). I loved the Christmas scenes at the Martin's with the whole clan. I was so crowded and loud. It felt like a real family Christmas.

Oh Gawd Casey they're protesting the Gaga show? LOL. Those protesters better watch out cause Gaga fans are fierce and it's like a gay club at her concerts. Can't wait to see what Gaga says about them. Have fun!

Well I'm gonna watch All my Children for the first time in two months beginning Monday.

WHAT! You can not protest against Lady Gaga, they better not, they'll be going against a combo of Prince fans meet Britney fans in this process. Gays & Straights will suceed over that Mickey Mouse Club of an anti-Gaga movement.

Get'em Gaga.

I actually think this show has gotten a lot better. Not perfect by any means, but I am, dare I say, liking it again. I am certainly biased because I wanted it back so bad. I admit I shed a tear when Kendall and Zach said goodbye to Erica. Yes, it's unrealistic that someone would wake up in the morning, decide to go away for months and just up and leave right away. But they were reminding me of how much I liked them when they first got married and now I'm going to miss them. I also like Annie and Adam scheming together....kinda fun. Ryan should not be with Erica, we all know that, but he seems toned down a little and tolerable. Love Tad doing the PI thing and not acting like a goofball. I have been wanting them to give up the Dr. Evil Hayward and make David human again and I'm hoping that his bringing Greenlee back will go towards redeeming him.

Can't wait for the 40th anniversary shows!!

i'm curious about the timelines behind the scenes...
remember when there was the talk about a new executive producer coming in?
& then the story vanished?
I wonder if that was around the time Frons gave Pratt the three month warning?

I just caught the Zach and Kendall departure on Soapnet and it was unexpected. Good episode!

I haven't liked Zach in a looong time. He's been an A..hole bully for eons, but last episode he was quiet, almost humble, and it reminded me how much I used to like Zach and Thorsten. Same said for Kendall. So TPTB can really class up the writing when they want to and it was a great way (perhaps not so realistic) to send off two top notch actors. Alicia and Thorsten delivered.

Minor nitpick, Susan Lucci, don't bother trying to work up tears and quit with the dry-nosed sniffing. We all know it's dryer than Death Valley in there. Good acting would more than make up for the lack of tears, IMHO.

Hi all--and happy holidays!

I have a question, I hope someone can help me with--- A couple of weeks ago (I don't even remember if it was OLTL or AMC) a character ordered a dirty martini--what exactly is that? I don't drink, so I really don't know. However, I am familar with the ingredients of a 'regular' martini, thanks to 007 movies and the food network...

Now onto OLTL---

I think, No and Nora are fabulous! Robert S. Woods and Hillary B. Smith have their characters down cold. It tickles me, when "Bo" looks at "Nora", as if he won the Lotto (California lottery) :-)

Poor Destiny! I hope she's not to hasty, about eliminating Mathew from her life. Love or not, she'd still be loosing her best friend.

Now for the thing I don't like: "Gigi". And, that's a shame. the character was one of my faves. Now she's just wishy washy! I know, Farrah Fath is a qualified actress. But, Scott Clifton is the only thing making the acting duo, tolerable for me! "Gigi" is just icky! Maybe, it's FF's ever changing hair styles...The actress,imho, either needs to calm he hair down, or have it put under contract--It's distracting! LOL!

have any of you read Kelly Ripa's interview with TV Guide? here is what she said...

"Trust me, there was no time for complaints. The writers wanted to add some controversy so they have Hayley getting into an argument with Erica Kane. Erica thinks that maybe Hayley is disapproving of her relationship with Ryan [Cameron Mathison] and that she’s going to get all scandalous and gossipy and tabloidy with her documentary. When we were running through the scene, Susan Lucci and I are looking at each other, like, where the hell is this coming from? Neither of us could remember our characters ever having a fight with each other. I was afraid to say anything but, thank God, Susan stops everything on the set—because she’s Susan Lucci and she can do that sort of thing—and she says “This is so combative. I don’t remember these two women ever having a problem. This seems totally out of nowhere.” And the producers are like, “C’mon, c’mon, ladies, just say the lines, please! We got boxes to pack!” [Laughs]"

This really proves that Pratt and his team have no idea what they are doing... I am so glad he is gone!!!
