Seriously, if Dee ends up on GH, and yet they can't make room for Genie Francis, then GH is even more fucked up then I thought.
See, that would ordinarily piss off GH fans but I'm convinced many of those who would care have already stopped watching and that those that care and still watch have accepted her never returning. Hell, I would almost expect Frons to do something really stupid like recast Genie with Deidre Hall but that would piss Tony Geary off and that would be the end of that.

I can see GH making her an offer and I can see them making room to bring her on. They have a chance with this current story of theirs to clear some space. I have this feeling Leslie Charleson may get axed during this story so that could help. However, I don't think Dee will end up there nor do I see her on AMC with their issues or OLTL since Ron seems to like bringing in familiar faces more then anyone new. I can see Drake on GH soon but Dee I feel may end up doing something else.

Actually, more and more I'm thinking Dee is going to so something primetime related or something not soap-related. With all the cuts in daytime, I can see her fielding offers and staying away for awhile. The way she said she thought there really wasn't "a daytime to be had" in her chat made it sound like she was through with daytime for awhile.

If I had to choose a place for her, I think the best is Y&R right now. The strong writing and direction will help her and she needs that. Otherwise, I don't see a good fit right now in daytime. I do think she will have her share of projects to pick from and it seems she has things in the works. We'll see. Anything can happen. Nothing would surprise me anymore.
I don't see her on Y&R at all. The show is filled with actresses in her age range who deserve the airtime that Dee would take away. Oddly enough, I see her on GH more than any other soap, but the thought of that makes me ill, since Genie and other actresses have been treated so poorly

Why would they not afford her? If Deidre joins another show, shouldn't she get a newbies salary since that's what she is on a new show?
LMAO. That would be like Meryl Streep joining Days and being paid the same as Molly Burnett.
Yes it would be since Meryl Streep would be new on Days and therefor wouldn't have a vets salary.
Like Mason said, it doesn't work that way. Like in sports, a soap is going to have to pay for a top notch actor like Deidre Hall to get her on their show. I don't know where you read such a thing but it's not true.
The article was from soap world. But all of you that say I'm wrong, where did you get your information?
Common knowledge of the free market system?
Which also has to do with the concept of paying what the market will bear, not to mention, the up and down worlds of inflation and recession. Which, according to the news, we are in. We don't know if the soap market will bear a high salary for Hall or not. If companies who pay for commercials cut back on their advertising, and if shows are cutting salaries for their established vets, why does it seem that a few people think others are silly in believing the world isn't going to throw money at Hall?

Plus, since Sindacco is NOT from the U.S., you might want to consider that he doesn't know about the US free enterprise concept. But then again, he might surprise you. I would venture to say, should a show consider hiring her, it's probably a happy medium between the Queen of the Vets salary and a lowly newbie salary. In my humble opinion, of course.
First of all I made no comments saying that I think a soap will currently pay what they have been willing to pay in the past. It is pretty OBVIOUS that all the soaps are hurting and nobody, even Deidre Hall, is going to be earning the kind of money she used to if she gets a job on another soap. I also never said anyone was silly, so please do not paint me with that accusatory brush. Secondly, I don't know what it would matter where Sindacco is from. But I'll guess that since he mentioned Soap World, he is from Australia. I believe Australia has the same kind of free market that the United States does. He can correct me if I'm wrong, since you neglected to tell me the facts of where he is from while somehow expecting me to know he is not from the U.S. But since we were talking about the soaps that are produced HERE in the U.S., again I don't see what it matters where he is from since I doubt Deidre will be going outside of the U.S. to find a job on a soap.

You make a great point and Y&R is not that into stunt-casting too often. Also, who knows what impact MTS would have. I always thought a bigger deal was made of the whole Melody vs Dee thing but you never know.

The more I think about it, the more I feel sure Dee will do something outside daytime unless she ends up back at Days. She's gone to primetime before. Who knows. I just have this feeling she won't be on a soap for at least a little while.

This would make a great poll! "Where will Deidre end up first?" And, of course, Drake. So few people seem to discuss poor Drake in this. We tend to forget he lost his job, too. Twice. (Although I still think the first one was a stunt).
1. He/she will retire
2. He/she will direct
3. He/she will produce
4. He/she will land another soap
5. He/she will go into primetime
6. He/she will do a movie
7. He/she will go into another line of business

Deidre Hall would only fit for GH and Y&R, in my opinion. Those shows scripts writers are miles better than any other show and Deidre Hall cannot overcome bad writing. Plus, I really want to see her play bitchy, and to see her opposite Jane Eliot. Maybe we can judge for ourselves if those "rumours" are true, LOL.

I would love to see Deidre and Jane in scenes together. ( Given there're best friends, that would be fun to watch) The icing on the cake would be to have Alexis/Diane
thrown in the mix. I probably could watch GH just to see those four interact. LOL!
I don't know Alexis/Diane, but I loved Jane Eliot on Days. It's been twenty years since I watched GH, but I'd give it a try again to see them.


Thanks for the info Hoochielicious.

What happened to Genie? I haven't watched her outside of Days, but I thought she was back on GH? I liked her and thought about watching GH again, but I just didn't want to start another soap since Days has been driving me crazy as it was.

I agree. I dont want her to come back to Y&R.

Ship her off to B&B, she can get back to her campy roots and Ridge can go after someone his own age for once. Make her the new Sally Spectra-esq character since Jackie Marone's not doing anything.

I am hoping that Dee & Drake go to Y/R, they need a new couple & business to compete with Victor & Jack, I can see Drake butting heads with Victor, he needs a strong actor like Drake to take him on.

Maybe Deidre will retire, collect her social security, and stay away from television for good. She doesn't need to start over on another soap and suck the air (literally) from the rest of the actors/characters that have already been established on each show. She has been on soaps long enough and her "acting" has gotten extremely bad the past few years.

I think he's a strong actor. I've enjoyed him in strong scenes with Stefano, Tony, Victor, Bo, etc. through the years. I know he's dissed on alot, but I feel like there is something about him that plays really well off of others. I felt he was best when he first came on as Roman, and the early John years. He had such a natural human side and obvious warm caring heart. I think over the years, he played the character very soapy because of so much camp, and it worked for me in the campy stories, but there were times in more recent years it was a bit too much.

I really loved how he played new John at the beginning of the year, particularly with the strong Marlena that fought to get him back. It's just too bad the writing stagnated because I really wanted to see new John evolve into a blend with old John's heart, but less over the top romanticism, more independent grit for both of them.

I don't know enough about Y&R to know if I'd want him to go there or not. I'd like him to go somewhere that he's needed and will be used.

he already has one, Peter Bergman.

and no, they dont need a new business, they already have 4. And if you're thinking Y&R will pander to a "supercouple" you're going to be sadly disapointed.

But it's one helluva eyebrow.

I'd like to see them in something I'm more likely to watch- guest starring in a primetime show, maybe.
