I am not criticizing her for focusing on her career,I am commenting on the fact that she said she was leaving the show to spend more time with her family.Since she said she was leaving the show to spend more time with her children/family,I think it is legitimate for me to wonder if that is the reason she left the show given that she is going on Ellen to give information on her upcoming projects which indicates more than one.I have not heard she is leaving TBL.Launching books usually includes book tours and there is speculation that she might be doing another show.I don't see why it is a big deal that I question (not criticize) the reasons she gave for leaving Days which was to spend more time with her family.The amount of time she spends with her family is her business and that of her family.As far as I am concerned,she did not have to give any reason for leaving,I am just happy she will soon be gone because of the likelihood that the writers will write more for other characters.I have only seen her because she is on Days.I really don't care what she does when she leaves Days.She can't act and I have no intention of buying any of her books or watching anything she is in once she leaves Days.If she becomes the next Oprah,so be it it,it won't affect my life.BTW I never watched Oprah either except in movies and that is because she can act and I hate talk shows.

Quoting limited to 4 levels deep
Guests on shows are booked in advance. I highly doubt that The Ellen Show booked AS just yesterday. So it's highly unlikely this guest spot is about AS trying to upstage JS's announcement. Or that it would prevent her from taking care of her children. I am not that show business savvy but I am pretty sure she's not the only actor/famous person who goes on talk shows to promote a product.
You may be correct about the booking of guests,I don't know because I hate talk shows and rarely watch them but AS and JS likely knew months ago their last tape date so it is possible that she booked months ago.Both are NBC shows so I don't think there would have to be much arm twisting to get Ellen to squeeze in ten minutes or so for AS.In addition since AS is still appearing on Days and her many fans would likely tune in to Ellen which would also factor into booking her on short notice.I have seen any number of people hit the news cycle one day then appear on high profile shows like the Tonight Show,Letterman,Conan O'Brien,etc. in the same week.if not the next day or two.
I said nothing about her inability to take care of her children.I was just wondering how many new projects she can have since her last appearance since she said she was spending more time with her children/famiy.She is not the only person who goes on a talk show to promote projects and I have no problem with her or anyone else promoting projects 24/7,I just commented on her going back on the show so soon to promote projects when the last time she was on the show she said she was leaving the show to spend more time with her children/family.
One thing does not cancel the other. It is really sad when women are criticized for being successful and ambitious while men are praised for doing the same thing.
I never thought AS would stop working just because she left Days. She is a driven and a smart business woman who is not afraid to follow her dreams. Having a career does not keep her from being a good mother to her children. Countless women are doing the same thing and should not be criticized for going after their dreams.
AS is a millionaire and she has made a name for herself. So I would think she is now able to do project on her own terms without sacrificing her family life. I support her in whatever project she chooses to do. I have total respect for strong women striving for success. The time when women were expected to stay in the kitchen and the bedroom barefoot and pregnant is long gone.
