Question about Soap Forums

Posted by TeamHayden (Member) at May 21 2016, 05:15 PM. 0 comments

Why do soap forums always send viruses?

I have constantly had this problem with SOC and DD.

What's their fucking problem?

If I stay away from those places, no problems.

Jensen Buchanan Arrested on DUI Charge After Causing a Traffic Collision

Posted by WillFan (Elite Member) at May 19 2016, 02:13 PM. 6 comments

Soap opera star Jensen Buchanan was arrested for driving under the influence after causing a car crash in Buellton, California, on Wednesday morning, according to the California Highway Patrol.

According to the collision report, the 53-year-old actress, best known for her roles in One Life to Live and Another World, also caused major injuries to another driver in the wrong-way crash.

"The immediate cause is under investigation -- our understanding is she allowed [her] vehicle to cross the double yellow lines," John Ortega, public information officer for the Buellton office of the CHP told ET. "There were two parties involved -- a driver in each vehicle."

According to the police report obtained by ET, at approximately 6:19 a.m., Buchanan's vehicle, a black Mercedes S550, drifted across the solid double yellow lines of the road as she was driving eastbound on State Route 154. The documents claim that she drove directly into the path of a driver of a white Ford C-Max, causing a head-on traffic collision.

Police say Buchanan and the other driver, Bradley Asolas, a 56-year-old man from Camarillo, California, were transported to the Santa Barbara Cottage Hospital. Buchanan was treated for minor injuries and arrested for DUI. Asolas was treated for major injuries.

"It is confirmed Jensen Buchanan as the driver of a black Mercedes," Ortega also told ET. "Jensen Buchanan was arrested for DUI -- she had minor injuries and went to Santa Barbara Cottage Hospital. As far as law enforcement is aware, she is still there. The other party had major injuries and was also taken to Cottage Hospital -- there is no update on his condition."

ET has reached out to Buchanan's rep for comment.

magazine #2
Love is blooming not only on, but off the air, for a recently paired duo.

magazine #3
One young actor in a front-burner storyline is telling castmates that he isn't renewing his contract.

Serial Scoop #1
This hunk was urged to take acting lessons. He refused. Doesn't he understand that his body will only take him so far? Don't be surprised if his contract isn't renewed.

Serial Scoop #2
Actors who played brothers in the past are about to be reunited on a new soap.

Serial Scoop #3
This very popular back-burnered on-screen couple will soon be at the center of a major story on their soap.

Serial Scoop #4
A sex-starved character on this soap is finally going to get some action in the months ahead. What took so long?

Australian soap opera producer has died aged 92.

Australian Media Mogul Reg Grundy Dies Age 92

Australian media mogul Reg Grundy, the television producer behind Australian soap opera “Neighbors,” has died aged 92.

Grundy’s shingle The Reg Grundy Organisation, founded in 1959, produced many of Oz’s most popular programs including “The Restless Years,” “The Young Doctors,” “Prisoner,” “Sons and Daughters” and the long-running “Neighbors,” which he developed with head of drama Reg Watson and still airs today.

Hundreds of Aussie thesps got their start on a TV show produced by his outfit, including Kylie Minogue and Jason Donovan, who both went on to become international stars off of the back of their roles in “Neighbors.”

Born on August 4, 1923 in Sydney, Australia, Grundy served in the Australian Army during World War II as a Sergeant stationed in Sydney. He started out his career in media as a boxing and sports commentator for radio station 2SM Sydney in 1947. Eventually, he devised and hosted a local version of “Wheel of Fortune” on the radio, before moving the show to television in 1959. He made hits out of bringing U.S. game shows such as this to Australian TV, producing local versions of “Blankety Blanks,” “Perfect Match” and “Sale of the Century.”

In 1979, his shingle created “Prisoner: Cell Block H” (known as “Prisoner” down under), which became one of Grundy’s biggest hits around the world. The soap was set in a fictional women’s prison and dealt with issues such as homosexuality, social injustice and prison reform, somewhat more adventurous issues for the television landscape at the time.

“Neighbors” has been on air since 1985. The fictional Ramsey Street launched the careers of not only Minogue and Donovan but also Guy Pearce, Liam Hemsworth and Natalie Imbruglia. Russell Crowe appeared for several episodes on the show as former prisoner Kenny Larkin.

Grundy’s feature film credits include “Abba: The Movie,” a 1977 docu about the Swedish pop band directed by Lasse Hallstrom.

Throughout his leadership, Grundy controlled and owned all of the shows he produced. In 1995, he sold his company for $320 million to Pearson Television, which is now known as FremantleMedia.

Grundy is survived by his wife Joy Chambers, an actress and author who appeared in several of his soaps as well as Kim Grundy, his daughter from his first marriage to Lola Powell. He died at his home in Bermuda, where he and Chambers lived. They were married for 45 years.
