So, let me get this um, straight: Pubescent Parker and Liberty have already been sexually active, but young adults Noah and Luke are still drawing straws to determine who’s the top and bottom before they consummate their legendary romance?


This made me spit my drink out! LOL :laugh:

Rick Hearst leaving GH will be a huge loss as will Steve Burton & Maurice Benard. But I'm glad that Burton & Benard may be leaving. If both leave, maybe, just maybe GH would quit having the mob be such a prominent part of the show.

I'm very glad that Rebecca Herbst stopped the Jason/Elizabeth pairing----the storyline almost ruined Elizabeth. I wouldn't be too surprised if she doesn't leave GH soon too (I'd love for her to move to ONE LIFE as a Nu-Kelly.)

I hope Catherine Hickland isn't gone for good as Lindsay. It's a shame. I think it was mistake to re-write the story of her killing Spencer as sane. She should've really been temporarily insane or plead self-defense and defense of Blair. If she's gone for good, I think AMC should hire Cat as a Nu-Liza Colby, she'd be awesome in the role and would be awesome paired with David Canary's Adam, and acting with her ex-husband and friend, Michael E. Knight(Tad).

I agree on all counts. However, read between the lines — THERE'S A RUSSIAN MOB FAMILY COMING TO PORT CHARLES. Contract ploy or what? Having said that, I doubt Benard or Burton will leave UNLESS CBS offers them the moon to leave, which could happen.

Hasnt anyone noticed Steve Burton and Maurice Bernard are always quitting when it comes time for contract negotiations?

It's a classic bargaining maneuver to get more money

And prepare yourself for Joe Mascolo’s umpteenth return as Stefano Marone on Aug. 5.
lol he's played Stefano Dimera and Massimo Marone. (Unless you were joking here, then - whoops!)

Looking forward to seeing Deidre as Samantha!

GET EM STEPH!!

I like Bernard but I've wanted him gone for years. Sonny lost his appeal years ago for me.

The best thing for GH may be to lose Sonny and Jason. Losing Hearst would hurt but he could do better elsewhere. Love that Herbst put the brakes on Jason/Liz too.

Good stuff, Nelson. Thanks for posting! :smile: .

Thanks... but I'll probably get more death threats for choosing the truth over the corporate bullying! No matter... say what you want about me, but I always choose my readers over the idiots in charge. Ironically, that makes more people in the biz call me up... discuss!

^I'm glad you do things the way you do, Nelson. It's what all soap journalists, hell what all those in the field of journalism, should do.

You don't have to tell me about how often TPTB change things just because something leaks out or ends up being speculated upon. I hear about that crap all the time as get info from time to time. I still remember JER changing months worth of story in Fall 2005 just because it leaked out that Passions was exposing Gwen and Rebecca's secrets. I would hate to see AMC postpone that tornado event. The show could use a big jolt to get it going. You would think that they wouldn't as you are adding to the hype over it. Any publicity is good publicity is what I thought was always the belief.

I'm not surprised most execs don't do what the fans or press want. They rely on focus groups or merely claim they know best. I find it funny how alot of critics still accept it and praise whatever is put out there, even if they were complaining weeks before about wanting something and never got it. I'm sure some members of the press are bought to praise things though so no surprise. Hell, Corday boycotted the mags in the late 90's and refused to give out spoilers because he didn't want them to give the show bad press.

Thanks for all you do, Nelson. I look forward to reading your columns each week.

Nelson, it's clear that you are one of us, a 'fan' of daytime, and that comes through your columns. Keep up the good work. :applause:
