I've loved my soaps since I began watching them with my grandmother (she called them her 'stories'). I loved Erica when she was fooling around with Philip while watching Kitty die. I loved OLTL when Karen cried and Marco wreaked havoc with Jenny. Hell - I called in sick on my first day of work at college to watch Luke and Laura get married. So I'm glad Oprah paid homage to great entertainers.
That said - I'm a huge Luke and Laura fan - but I get a little upset that they never really give credit to the stellar stories that supported them - like Rick and Leslie and Alan and Monica. Back then - we loved Denise Alexander just as much as Genie Francis. And frankly - I doubt they could've pulled off their later plots without the support of Emma Samms, Demi Moore, and Tristan Rogers. I give credit to Tony and Genie - but their star was only slightly brighter than the rest in that cast.
And what Genie said about not playing the victim is right on. She is Leslie's daughter....survived the Cassadines - put up with Luke's bs. Why she didn't evolve into the strongest character on that soap is beyond me.

As far back as his time on Bright Promise, Tony's lack of interest in females was obvious by the interviews he would give. He was always playing retards, rapists, weirdoes. He was hired as Luke because he had a weird vibe. He was never intended to be a love interest for Genie, but a villian in the Laura/Scotty relationship. Something weird clicked, though, and the rest is history. Tony went from skinny creep to a sex symbol and then the 'rumours' about his dates with co-stars like Les Charleson( a big old dyke) and that make up lady started churning out.

Back in the 90s Gloria Montry returned to GH and brought Tony Geary back as a new character named Bill Eckart, Luke's cousin. The story and character was disastrous. Meanwhile, Genie was on AMC and later LOVING as Ceara, a role she really loved. Monty left GH and ABC wanted to salvage the mess Monty made with the Tony Geary return. They cornered Francis by having her AMC character murdered and offering her a return to GH. It was blunked on her. Geary and Francis were forced back into the roles.

It's possible that Jill Farren Phelps FINALLY learned that killing off a beloved female character is the stupidest fucking shit to pull and will lose fans. She did it on AW and it was then cancelled. She did it on GL which many said was the beginning of the end for that soap. That bitch knew that doing it a third time would lead to her demise in the business (which is dying anyway but still).%0D %0D Tyler Christopher's primetime show is getting picked up so he might just be fine leaving. The Balkan storyline will get wrapped up in a few so those actors will be gone too. Rebecca Herbst can't be that expensive. Getting rid of the guy who used to be on Days and a few others should tighten the budget.

I always thought it was sort of hilarious that Luke and Laura fell in love after he raped her in the disco. I still can't hear Herb Alpert's "Rise" without thinking about disco rape.
9-year-old me never thought Luke was a handsome man, and could never understand why she would pick him over Scotty.
|by Jane Dawson R.N.||reply 117||02/22/2011|
R117, if Laura had her head screwed on straight, she would have had a three way with Scotty and Dr. Jeff Webber. Luke was gross.

"You're talking about Christian LeBlanc. He's gay. Not sure if he's out, but I feel like in an Emmy acceptance speech he thanked a guy?"%0D %0D Yes he is gay and it is believed he is the anonymous sperm donor of Michelle Staffords (Phyllis Y&R) daughter. She had her baby via surrogate. I have heard repeatedly that MS is a lesbian but she is also a scientologist (big time) so I'm not so sure. %0D %0D

Vaughan recently turned down a testing deal with DAYS because he said what they were offering him wasn't what he thought he was worth. Yes - that was an actual tweet from him. %0D %0D I agree that soaps should all be taken back to half-an-hour.

La Liz has written her memoirs. I'm sure she'll mention TG one way or another.
|by Jane Dawson R.N.||reply 127||02/27/2011|
R125, do you know what is meant by a "testing" deal? I'm not going to pass judgment at turning it down, since I don't know what the hell a testing deal is, but Greg may want to think twice about tweeting that he turned it down. Sounds a little egotistical.
|by Jane Dawson R.N.||reply 128||02/27/2011|
I am thinking a testing deal is when the actor is "tested' for chemistry with other actors, or if his role will any appeal for a long-term story. The show could suddenly say 'we don't think this working out' at any time. %0D %0D DAYS is a strange place these days. They should be happy to get Vaughan, who still has a big fanbase from ABC. And he would be a big fucking improvement in the leading man department over Galen "wake me up when the scene is over" Galing, who is the most painful thing to watch since Drake Hogthescreen. I don't think they know what they are doing over at DAYS - you hire Frances Fisher to a contract and give her silly crap to do as a character totally unrelated to any core character. She is playing "Gladys the neighbour".
|by Jane Dawson R.N.||reply 129||02/27/2011|
Well, DAYS didn't test Natalia Livingston, and we saw how well that worked out.
And Liz had "an affair" with Geary the same way she had "an affair" with Malcolm Forbes.
|by Jane Dawson R.N.||reply 130||02/27/2011|
I didn't think Gladys was a contract role. If it is, She has a bigger role to play than neighbor. Could she be anyone's mum?

PLEASE! Someone tell me more about MS and CLB. I knew he was gay but I didn't know Michelle was a leasbian. Is this some sort of unfounded rumor or is it true? Is she REALLY a scientologist? Is CLC really the sperm donor? I'm sorry If this has been talked about before but I have never heard any of this stuff.
|by Jane Dawson R.N.||reply 132||02/27/2011|
Both Michelle Stafford and Sharon Case are Scientologists.
|by Jane Dawson R.N.||reply 133||02/27/2011|
Yes MS is a scientologist. I believe she's lesbian too. She is at the very least bisexual. No proof if CLB is the sperm donor of her baby. I think it's generally known he is though. Why a great thing like that is a secret I'll never know. CLB is wonderful. I'd shout it from the rooftops!

WEHT the big storyline that was going to feature Valentin Cassadine, bringing Helena and even Laura back into the mix? Don't trust anything Guza has to say if it doesn't have anything to do with the mob stories. Matt Borlenghi has been screwed around for two years overe that role. Guza's obsession with Sonny & Co has destroyed that show. It is a terrible awful place to visit for an hour a day. I stopped watching a long time ago. %0D %0D Btw, the Valentin Cassadine story was a bit sloppily put together anyway, with yet another illigetimate son of Mikkos Cassadine coming out of the woodwork ... why the show has never decided to bring Thaoo Penghlis back as Mikkos' brother Tony and have Valentin as Tony's son is beyond me. Would love to see Towers and Penghlis play at rivals.

Is Jane Elliott gay? I never knew that. I did a google search on Jane Elliott lesbian, and it took me a backstage stories thread on TWoP, where the "Jane Elliott is gay" post refers to stories here at DL.
By the way, that TWoP thread is a good way to kill about three hours, but it does get tedious because all the people posting refer to the actors by their initials.
