Please post all interesting/spoilerish tweets in this thread. If a news article or new video is also tweeted (for example by SOD or NBC), it should probably go in its own thread, following our normal rules. This thread is for tweets, usually from someone on the list below, which give us information in some way about anything related to the show or upcoming storylines.

Please link each tweet and then set it off in italics, quotes or a quote box. To link a tweet, click "expand" and then click "details". That will give you the link to the tweet on its own page. If this is difficult (ie posting from a phone), please at least set off the tweet in quotation marks.

If anyone has names to add to this thread, please PM them to me rather than putting them in the thread. There are unfortunately a lot of fake accounts out there, and we want to verify each account is legit before putting it in this list.

I have entered the below list as a "Twitter List" under the DaytimeRoyalty twitter account. To access it, go to

Yes, I understand that it's all about who you know, etc. But the fact remains that Daytime can not rely on old men and old ladies when it comes to being able to write a show of interest to new audiences, whether now Daytime will capture more viewers, they need to start telling more interesting storytelling, and completely crass certain characters, they can throw away, I know they do not have the same budget when it comes to sets, etc. But a good writer who understands what attracts today's audience can give Daytime shows a push in the right direction. If we now look at Tom Sell those are two OLD men who worked a long time in the entertainment industry may be the very thing that is wrong, they have outdated views of what is working.
As an old woman, I take issue with those remarks. And with the fact that the writers should not also attract "old women", who tend to like young stuff, too. Therein lies the problem with a HUGE majority of TV executive's attitudes. That we are to be put out to pasture. I mean, look at Deidre Hall, Kristian Alfonso, Judi Evans, Lauren Koslow, Wally Kurth, Joe Mascolo, Drake Hogestyn....et al. They are part of the TV executive's demographic view of "old". I'm pretty sure their thoughts aren't outdated, and it's really a stereotype to believe that we all think that way as well.
I'm 53 years old and have gone back to university to get a PhD, living amongst the college attitudes. There are just as many people my age who are doing that as there are 30-somes getting their PhD, from my campus observations. It's rather difficult to be a university student and have "old" ideas.
I think you need to get ahold of some AARP magazines and read some of the articles about these so-called "old" people.
Off my soapbox now.
Hey, I'm totally convinced that older women have similar taste as younger women, etc., it was not at all what I meant when I talked about OLD writers, this is what I think "young blood" when it comes to writer can bring what is viable today and they often do not have the same old-fashioned view of the characters and stories. There are really great "old" writers out there, but unfortunately I think Daytime writers are a little corny with their storytelling, but of course it is not easy for them because they can not write what they want, because there are always others who meddles in what they should write and for whom, etc. and I still think that the characters are the key to good storytelling, when it comes to the veterans on this show? The only one I can see getting good story is the character Stefano/ Kristen the other coming across as dull and weak. Which is a shame, I would love to see Hope as an exemple as strong, fiery and gladly in a hot passionate story. What I mean is that it would be good if they could spice up some characters it becomes monotonous and boring otherwise. This is just what I think and there are certainly others who think otherwise :)
For me, it's not so much a question of age, but whether the writers love what they do. If they love the show, understand the genre, and respect the characters and the audience, then that shows.

I get a very cynical, burned-out vibe from Tomlin. Maybe he was more into writing in general and soap-writing specifically in the past, but I sense he's just going through the motions now. In his mind, he's perfected this low-budget model of churning out product to please his bosses, and he has somehow lost any connection he might have once had with the characters and with his audience.

In my view, that's why Tomlin and Co. should go -- not because of their age, but because of their attitude.

(Btw, since there have been heavy hints in the past about Tomlin's own ageist views towards the actors, this discussion strikes me as slightly ironic. :) )

Prime time stories wouldn't work in daytime anyway.
I think they could on paper. I mean, most primetime storylines were taken over from soaps. The problem would be in execution. Primetime dramas love location shoots and expensive looking sets and clothes. Days would go bankrupt if they tried to copy primetime in just one episode.

The indication was that her getting a new romantic partner would be the story. Kristian herself said she just started filming it.

Tina
That's the exact opposite of what they've been saying. Did they say something new this week?
that was the impression I had gotten as well, between what Kristian had said to you guys at Kate's birthday & her saying on BT that the fans were going to get something they've been asking for for a year and a half. The top of the "what Hope fans want" list is Bo "dying" to free up Hope from being attached to an off-screen character, and a story for Hope period. Hope gaining a new romantic partner isn't listed until about 1/2 way down. lol.
What if she's already filmed the "Bo dying" part and is just now starting to film the "new partner" part of Hope's story? Would that be more consistent with what she and everyone has been saying? :shrug:

What's the exact opposite? From your interview with Kristian:

Quote:
 

We keep hearing Hope has a storyling coming up.
Yep...

When?
Iím in the process of it - I just started. We just started filming it. Itís great. Itís something I think a lot of people can identify with. I know they can because I was one of those parents.



That's pretty much exactly what she said to us....that she just started filming a new story. Did she tell you that it wouldn't be a romantic one?



Yes, she said it just started. But she has been saying for weeks that it's not a romantic relationship with Rafe and the indication in the DR interview was that it had to do with Ciara. Unless she has said something else, she hasnt said anything about her story involving a relationship. I'm not overly trusting of her but it's still worth pointing out that what she said doesn't line up with what's being discussed unless she has said something additional which will then also not line up with what she previously said.
Well, a story where Hope gets a new man in her life doesn't preclude that Ciara would play a big part. In fact, I would expect her to not take it well. And it's quite possible that the Rafe and Hope relationship hasn't been romantic up to now, or there could be another man involved.
but Kristian saying that she was one of those parents leads one to believe that we'll be seeing more of Hope struggling as a single parent. Kristian separated/divorced from Simon when her son Gino was still very young, and I don't recall seeing any event pics of her with another boyfriend until at least a few years later.
i suspect that Hope & Rafe being seen more on screen will be a result of the fact that Rafe is out of the hospital and back on the force and thus investigating things with his partner, Hope.

You know GG said something recently in an interview that sort of made it seem that he might not end up with who we think he would end up with, based on current story. Does anyone remember what interview that came from? I wonder if somehow Jordan and Rafe are not meant to go further after he recoops and he somehow ends up getting closer and closer to Hope
And that will free up Jordan to be Daniel's new love! Didn't Shawn say Daniel would end up with somebody surprising?
Hope would be surprising.
Marlena is also free.
i have no objections to seeing Kristian & Shawn playing romantic partners on a webseries or guest spot on a primetime show, or whatever, since I do think that they have decent chemistry (hell, Kristian has chemistry with every guy - Shawn, Greg, James, Galen, etc.), but HELL NO to Hope/Daniel!!

Ugh, I'll be so pissed!

It should've been Hope and Vargas. :toetap:
Yes it should have been Hope & Vargas.

Let me ask you a question....did you not notice how Vargas's character evolved.
He came on a bad guy, but then he softened, especially in scenes with with Hope and you could see they were toying with redeeming him in the way he handled Nick, etc.

Then all of a sudden he's a drug dealer and an asshat again?

I can't help but ask myself why??
TPTB were afraid that Hope/Vargas would be insanely popular, and they couldn't have Vope competing with Fetch & EJami (& taking away any of the ridiculous amount of airtime devoted to the two couples). ;)

When was this? Oh and does anyone remember when GG was complaining about his lack of a story? Wasn't it well after the woman playing Jordan started filming?
She was already there for about two months. Hope and Ciara spend time on Christmas Day with Rafe right?
Hope & Ciara spend time on either Christmas Eve (which really should be at least 2 episodes - Christmas Eve Day and Christmas Eve Eve) or Christmas Day with Rafe at whatever set it is that Jason's given us a 1/2 sneak peak about.

Don't they decide to give airtime to characters and pairings? so what is there to be afraid off in terms of VOPE taking airtime?

Tina
if a new romantic partner is her story, then Bo better be cold in the ground, cause there's no way Hope would move on otherwise.
that said, I'm going to assume that her romantic partner will likely be the new guy that was cast and not Rafe, otherwise what was the point of Jordan being in Salem.
I really don't think they're going to kill Bo...it would entagle Hope to him even further.

Personally my spec is that when Rafe/Hope start working on the whodunnit that's supposed to come out of the engagement party, he will stumble on the fact that Bo has been shacked up with Carly (or Billie) in Europe all this time, and Hope is too embarassed to tell anybody. He will convince her to tell the truth and help her deal with Ciara and that's how they will fall in love.
How would Bo dying entangle her to him even more? Hope has never cheated on Bo outside of her one island romp with Patrick which only happened after Hope read Bo's Chelsea-rewritten email saying that he wanted a divorce from her (and all the stuff that had happened in Salem prior to that that resulted in her leaving town in the first place (including seeing Bo & Billie in bed together)).
Hope finding out that Bo is with either Billie or Carly would make absolutely no sense and would make a lot of fans really really really REALLY pissed off. It doesn't make sense since both Billie & Carly have come to the same realizations - Bo loves Hope more than he loves/loved either of them, and at the end of the day, he will always choose Hope.
The one part of your theory I like is Rafe being there for Hope, but I still don't want them to become romantically involved.

i don't disagree that Hope needs someone. Her character is still quite viable and relatable to a lot of the fans that watch. That said, Hope doesn't need someone in order to have a story, IMO.
The show needs to get out of this "stories for couples" mentality that they're in. The only non-couple story on the show right now is Marlena/Victor/Nicole vs Kristen (and the somewhat related Eric/Kristen stuff), and even that's a substory of Bristen. Every other story is about a couple - EJami, Fetch/JJ, Abby/Chad/Cam, Wilson/Nabi. I've waid it before - the show needs some mystery, some cut-throat lying and scheming, etc. Outside of Chad lying to Abby and what's upcoming for Theresa/Jen, there's not much evil going around (unless you count Wilson's dictatorship over who Gabi can and cannot see/hang out with/sleep with).
Going back to Hope, I'd love to see her eventually romantically involved with someone, but rushing into a Hope/Not-Bo pairing would be OOC for Hope.

The show has quite a few older-generation characters floating around, and they underutilize almost all of them - Stefano, Victor, Caroline, Doug, Julie. The only person we see on a somewhat regular basis is Maggie, and that's cause she's mainly bitching about Fetch being apart or doing some sort of other Fetch pimping.
I'm sure it's too much to hope that Doug & Julie will have some sort of presence in Hope's new storyline as it seems to have something to do with Hope being a single mom.

It's been a year since Bo has been on the screen. Hope's new story won't air until around February so that will be around 18 months since Bo left town. I don't think giving her a new guy then would be rushing anything.

"It"s time. Hope needs someone." Both Meng and Kristian said it.

Plus killing of Bo would leave Hope focused on Bo, what happened to him, who did it. Having Bo actually left Hope for Carly - while it would piss people off - would make more of a clean break for Hope, allowing her to move on without weeks/months of grieving.

At this point, I don't care whether Bo is dead or with someone else. I just want Hope to be able to move on. I've actually always wished she was a bit naughtier so I wouldn't mind her going a little wild!

Meng specifically said hope needed someone. Take that for what you will.
i don't disagree that Hope needs someone. Her character is still quite viable and relatable to a lot of the fans that watch. That said, Hope doesn't need someone in order to have a story, IMO.
The show needs to get out of this "stories for couples" mentality that they're in. The only non-couple story on the show right now is Marlena/Victor/Nicole vs Kristen (and the somewhat related Eric/Kristen stuff), and even that's a substory of Bristen. Every other story is about a couple - EJami, Fetch/JJ, Abby/Chad/Cam, Wilson/Nabi. I've waid it before - the show needs some mystery, some cut-throat lying and scheming, etc. Outside of Chad lying to Abby and what's upcoming for Theresa/Jen, there's not much evil going around (unless you count Wilson's dictatorship over who Gabi can and cannot see/hang out with/sleep with).
Going back to Hope, I'd love to see her eventually romantically involved with someone, but rushing into a Hope/Not-Bo pairing would be OOC for Hope.
It's been a year since Bo has been on the screen. Hope's new story won't air until around February so that will be around 18 months since Bo left town. I don't think giving her a new guy then would be rushing anything.

"It"s time. Hope needs someone." Both Meng and Kristian said it.
i'm not talking about rushing things in terms of how long Bo has been off screen, but rather the fact that up until now, the few one-sided conversations we've seen tell us that Bo & Hope are still very much together. Thus, if Bo were to die before Christmas (for example), Hope being paired with someone in January would be rushing.
Does that make sense?!

Again, I don't disagree with them that Hope could use a male counterpart.

For three months ???

I just don't understand why they would be so dismayed in march 2011 as you say when they had been getting good numbers or at least numbers that would have them dancing in the streets now for the proceeding three months. Those numbers can't have all come from a blizzard on the east coast confining people to their houses where the only thing they could tune into was days.

And if they were upset with 230 k. Numbers then why are they so happy with 240 k now.

Plus killing of Bo would leave Hope focused on Bo, what happened to him, who did it. Having Bo actually left Hope for Carly - while it would piss people off - would make more of a clean break for Hope, allowing her to move on without weeks/months of grieving.

Besides, Tomlin's MO is he does like to piss people off.
Hope has NEVER moved on with another man while Bo was with Billie or Carly. Hope finding out Bo was with Carly would not result in her moving on with someone else. Killing off Bo would yes, make her want to find out who did it, but she could fall for someone who is there for her through her grieving.

I'm sure that Tomlin has enjoyed giving Kristian limited amounts of material since Peter's departure. If it were up to him, Kristian wouldn't be getting whatever story it is she is getting. Kristian getting a story is 100% Corday's doing. Tomlin may be very anti-Kristian, but Kristian has quite a few major player friends that will always have her back and fight for her if needed.

I want the Bo stuff to be resolved well. THEN, i could be for a bit of a naughtier Hope when it comes to relationships. Maybe her naughtiness/wildness could be a result of her grieving or her want for someone she can depend on.
