There was an entire thread on the Dick Clark thing.

And can dick Clark sit out next year... It's depressing. And his makeup artist needs to take it down like ten notches
8:05 AM Jan 1st

Nothing against people with debilitating diseases...it's just not the uplifting moment I'm lookin for I guess
8:16 AM Jan 1st

And not point out others imperfections, unless of course you're hosting a show in front of millions of people, then it seems like fair game
8:45 AM Jan 1st

I'm not insensitive to clarks condition I just don't see it as inspirational. It's just an obvious reminder that getting old sucks
12:06 PM Jan 1st

Ald clearly i'm not alone in thinking so... It'd be like if Jordan was still playin basketball. Know when to hang it up
12:08 PM Jan 1st

If you've had a prolific career as an announcer and now can barely count down from ten, I'm sorry but that's not inspirational
12:09 PM Jan 1st

Of course if you're not good at your job anymore it's time to move on...would u want a bad roofer or electrician working on your house?!
12:22 PM Jan 1st

Go gracefully. Know when to hang it up. The end.

Dick Clark for president!
12:46 PM Jan 1st


I get where he was coming from one one level; it is hard to watch people deteriorate, but we don't put people out to pasture, or on ice floes because they're not inspiring.
Thanks for posting this. I missed the whole thing on Twitter and hadn't discovered DR yet. I think he does have a point but he could have expressed it in a much more respectful way. I know GG can be a goofball but I've always heard he is very nice and respectful. I've gotten that impression from his interviews also, so this surprised me.
His comments about DC are extremely rude, IMO. It's not funny at all. Maybe Rafe and Jordan deserve each other after all lol.


SOD: Tragedy for Adrienne
I like this Adrienne/Lucas/Justin story. The only problem is that we see so little of them.

SOD: February Sweeps
A pretty good February. NOT. :yawnz: :yawnz:

Melanie as an investigator? Don't they have Salem PD for things like that?

Quoting limited to 4 levels deepI think I recall that Drake and Vic were sweethearts when he started out, but they separated for awhile. During this time he went to Days, rumors flew about him and Dee.. But at some point he got back with Victoria (I think she was pregnant) They got engaged and Dee was devastated. In-fact I think she got married the very same day as he did to that rich old guy.
I still chuckle over that! I think I'd want to know and check in once in a while to see what was going on.
I don't believe DHs were more than colleagues and friends in 1986-1987. DH's daughter was born in 1985, so he was with Victoria (again) before he started and he married her in December 1986.
Some tidbits from Drake's interviews:

http://drakehogestyn.net//OngoingDays86.html
Ok, but that was 30 years ago. Neither were married at the time. Therefore, his wife needs to get over it. To hold a 30 year grudge is a little immature on her part. Now if something was going on after they all got married, then I can see her still be pissed. Otherwise, get over it.
But We don't know if it really happened :) :) :) . That's what I wanted to say.lol

ha ha ha this was actually funny, I can understand that it may not be so fun to see their partner in love scenes with another even if it's just acting, at the same time one can say that being in relationship with an actor they know of course what they sign up for, so to speak :)
I think I recall that Drake and Vic were sweethearts when he started out, but they separated for awhile. During this time he went to Days, rumors flew about him and Dee.. But at some point he got back with Victoria (I think she was pregnant) They got engaged and Dee was devastated. In-fact I think she got married the very same day as he did to that rich old guy. So they had thev same Wedding anniversary. **Very Odd**
After a couple years Dee returned to Days, And many wondered about all the Torn between 2 Loves story lines.
But these were just things I heard and read a long time ago. But they did have the same Anniversary.

Lol I recall bumping into a radio interview some years ago (it might've taken place when Drake and a few other cast members were visiting South Africa), where Drake told how Victoria (his wife) had turned the tv on in the middle of Jarlena's love scene - and then she had made him sleep on the sofa that night because he had been too convincing or something like that :lol:


Yes Ive heard him say in interviews that she does not watch Day's.. Or He prefers she not watch the show because she does not like seeing him with other women even on TV.
I still chuckle over that! I think I'd want to know and check in once in a while to see what was going on.

SOD: Stuff we know and shouldn't tell you
Only after an extensive research you can say who is loved and who's not. Otherwise it is just a speculation.
And re: recurring actors. They don't have to fire them, they can simply not use them if they're not needed.
That said I agree with most of their choices.

I saw this floating around....I am not sure..but some of these actors are recurring....I would think Days would cut contract actors if anything....

Genie Francis thought DAYS was a hot mess, which is why she left kind of suddenly. She liked working with Drake a lot, but she thought the writing of Diana Colville was crap and that the producers had no clue what they were doing. No blind item needed on that one - it comes straight from her.
Her story about the Greece shoot is wild. GF is funny, because on the one hand her criticisms of Days can't be denied, but she always comes off as a bit high maintenance and cool when she talks about it.

I did run across this quote and thought it was sweet.

Quote:
 
Though exteriors were shot on remote in Greece, Justin & Adrienne's ceremony on Days of Our Lives took place at St. Sophia's, a Greek Orthodox church in Los Angeles. The weather was hot, and the bride had a bit of a temperature control problem.
"They had to give me little hand fans to put under the skirt because I was sweating buckets." Evans laughs. "[Otherwise], it was really neat because everyone kept saying, 'You're the bride. You're the bride...Out of the [makeup] chair, we have to do the bride.' I felt special that day."
But being special had its drawbacks. "You'd better perform, or else," Evans says, but there was also a danger of getting too caught up. "Genie Francis [ex-Diana, DAYS; Laura, GH] came up to me when it was all over and said, "I just want you to know I love you and you're special. On my wedding day on General Hospital, everyone just went home and I felt lonely and really depressed and I don't want you to feel depressed.' That caught me by surprise, but she was right. At the end, everyone just went 'OK, that's a wrap.' You're left standing there with a bouquet in your hand thinking, 'I get to drive home alone.' It's like you were jilted at the altar. What Genie did was really special. I've never forgotten it."
In her interview from 2011 GF said she left because of the failed contract negotiations. Maybe in 2011 it didn't look that bad anymore. I guess, now she definitely knows that the writing for characters can get much worse than it was in Diana's case.


I never got into the Diana Coville story. It just didn't work for me. Perhaps I wasn't ready for "Roman" to move on. But reading these comments, and earlier ones re GF, make me think I had good reason not to like that story line.
I started watching "Days" just before RoJohn/Diana story became one of their main stories. I loved the pairing (I think their decision to drop Mike/Diana and go with Roman/ Diana was a smart one because GF had amazing chemistry with DH). I really enjoyed the disc/Greece storyline a lot. BTW Marlena's memory was treated with respect, she wasn't forgotten immediately like it happened with some other characters not so long ago.

I read or heard that GF was getting a lot of hate mail from some fans (sent to her mother's house, if I remember correctly) during that time saying things like she "stole Deidre's man" etc. Maybe that's why she didn't like her stint on "Days" too much. However she was always very positive about Drake. She even mentioned in 2011 what a sweet man he is.







Behind the Scenes Gossip
Reading this thread reminded me of gossips I heard about myself while on my first workplace. When I was told who I slept with (every male) and what was my sexual orientation (lesbian), I was like OMG :o :o :o :o :o OMG

So well....

P.S. It's only re: sex ( because it usually happens behind closed doors).

This is just such a fascinating read...the entire Melissa Reeves saga.

https://web.archive.org/web/20001017171816/http://www.bethsdayspage.com/days/missy.html
What I don't get in that saga is why people can't work together after the affair, why one of them had to be fired. It's not that he raped her. MR made a mistake and that was it. Or was it some kind of a fatal attraction lol?
I think the conventional wisdom is that Scott Reeves would not agree to Missy working at Days again if Jason Brooks was still there.
Certainly dont blame him but it seemed he was putting all the blame on the guy she cheated with. MR was just as guilty. Maybe he should have divorced her instead of demanding MR not be in any more scenes with him. If she could cheat with one guy she could cheat with another
I agree. It's a trust issue. Either you still trust your wife or not anymore IMO.

Just watched Eileen on "Watch What Happens Live" with Andy Cohen. There was a montage of her work on her soaps, with 95% of it being Days focused (Kristen/Marlena and Kristen/Theresa all her alter egos) with just, like, one minor Ashley clip thrown in. If you watched the montage, you would think she was primarily at Days, cuz All I saw was Kristen.

Andy Cohen asked Eileen who the best kisser out of all her soap leading men, past and present, and she paused and then said "Eric Martsolf". Heh.

That was all the Days stuff.


:D :D Given her multiple years of experience on different soaps, that's quite a compliment :) :D :D !

I had never heard the drunk rumor but I read somewhere years ago that Frank Parker kicked his car for parking in his spot.
Oh, Frank Parker...
Parking spaces are serious business. JM supposedly almost cried when Casey D. parked in his space. I'm guessing it was in anger, since he was furious when WK parked there.
They even wrote this into the show:).

Trying to mention some others haven't. Some of the rumors going around during the SSK/Melaswen story were interesting.

I recall SON or some other sites reporting that Tanya Boyd was to be one of Marlena's next victims after Tony (which would make sense given where the story went for that entire month after Tony got "murdered" and then it was said not to be the case and we got word that Bill Hayes (who had been promised along with SSH that they would not be killed off) was ousted along with John Aniston (who wasn't even part of the SS storyline). The whole period after Tony's "death" is when you can see a noticeable shift in the writing and direction of the story. I think that is when they decided to change things and have the "dead" not be dead and that made "killing" Alice a possibility because before that rumors were that the final victim would be Bo or Hope if I recall.

Then, I also heard rumors that Marlena being a witch was under consideration during the SSK, hence her in the black hood coming to Celeste after her "death."

There were all sorts of rumors too about Melaswen and how other dead characters would be found alive there. Colin was the only rumor that actually came true but others that were rumored to be on the island were Isabella, Steve, and Ernesto (who would turn out to be the mastermind of the whole plot). I was really hoping for Ernesto as the mastermind. That would've made a whole lot of sense given his whole magic angle.

There were so many rumors during that entire story and even after that story there were rumors and gossip. One from 2005 was that Drake was pushing for a Jate pairing, hence that whole Jate chat uproar, and that is one of the big reasons Wayne got brought back as another character to be paired with Marlena.

Then from the Sheffer era, it became clear Hogan and his team were handcuffed from day one in the writing department. The only time it seemed his stuff truly didn't get changed was the first 2 months and October 2007-January 2008 and even then I think some changes occurred.

I do recall a rumor (I think I had even posted it because I had heard it from someone and passed it along) about a potential story for Maggie in the aftermath of Mickey's death. Maggie was supposed to fall off the wagon and be involved in a car accident that would injure at least one of Sami's kids (I think Allie was the one mentioned). Lucas would see major airtime with this too as Maggie was his sponsor. If this story was planned, I wonder if they changed it because of the death of Frances Reid. She did pass away around the time Mickey was killed off the show and the fallout and tease of Maggie falling of the wagon played out in late January of that year. The show did seem to know Frances was in poor health so I wonder if knowing that and her passing made them change gears to Maggie relapsing on her illness instead. They had to work around the Nighttime Hope story too while paying tribute to Alice so I wouldn't be surprised if they had changed story because of what happened.

I am sure there is quite a bit from 2001-present, especially stuff from last year when the show came apart at the seams. AZ, GV, and SC in particular I believe have something going on. Obviously, AZ and SC are dating but I think something is clearly up with AZ and GV and I am starting to think that played into the show moving away from Ericole. Just a theory but something has been off with them since May.

Some of these may be more theories than gossip but still interesting. I also echo what Drew said. Love these threads. Remind me of the old days!


If that was the case I would imagine they would move them out of each other's orbits completely they could have severed ties many times and moved them apart but they still have them all circling each other.
I don't believe nowadays HWs or EPs care about personal relationships between actors. I don't think they'll change/adjust storylines because of that..

yessss! it was amazing, esp when she was talking about the hooking up in dressing rooms, coke, and getting served real alcohol on set in the hay days!
How come now suddenly everybody is talking about hooking up in dressing rooms back then? First Jane Elliot, Nancy Lee Grahn, now ED.lol
