That only lasted while he was in a pairing whose fans have money. When they moved him into a pairing with a trailer trash character whose fans are broke, his Monavie career tanked.

Oh, come on. Don't tell me I'm the only one left here who used to read and post on the old Daytime Dish forum?
There was an insider posting in that forum about 9-10 years ago, who used to give us almost daily updates about the life of Steve Burton. It was a long time ago, but this is what I remember:
Knocked up co-star and ex-girlfriend Becky Herbst twice while married. Becky's husband is gay, and, I believe, he would divide his time between their household and South America, where his partner lived.
His wife knows about the affair, and knows that Steve is the father of Herbst's children, and shortly after the birth of the second love-child, he came home from work to find his bags packed on the front lawn. Supposedly stayed at Rick Hearst's house until he could convince his wife to give him another chance.
Supposedly is a huge homophobe, but gets off on seeing two women together, unless it looks like they're enjoying themselves too much. Reportedly once got pissed at Becky Herbst because she was making out with Sarah Brown-at his urging-and appeared to be enjoying it too much. Freaked out and called them both dykes.
Rumor has it that Amber Tambyln was in love with him during her stint on General Hospital. According to legend, she begged him to give her a chance, but she was too young for him and he wasn't attracted to her. She wasn't too young, however, to eat out Becky Herbst while he watched. On more than one occasion. Which, if true, would make Becky guilty of statutory rape.
He landed a small speaking role in Spiderman 2, but the suits wouldn't let him take time off for the film, which made him so bitter he became even more surly on set, and began to phone in his performance.
I'm not saying that any of this is true, but this is what the GH insider told us about him back in the day.

When Melissa Reeves cheated on Scott, he dragged her to his church, hauled her in front of the congregation and made her confess in front of everybody. Apparently that's how some Xtian cults handle their marital problems.
Burton was with his wife for seven years before they got married, but they hadn't been married very long before they started having problems. Scott Reeves told them the Xtian cult he belongs to would solve all of their problems. Burton's wife got into it and to save their marriage Burton went along with it. He doesn't seem to have become much of a believer, because he told his fans at a PA that nothing was different about him except that he was a Xtian.
Their daughter was going to a Xtian school in CA, but Burton's wife built a home in Tennessee and moved the kids and herself there. She is homeschooling those poor kids, although she seems downright dim. Burton keeps acting like it's normal for married people to live more than half a continent away from each other, but who knows what's really going on. Where I come from, that would be called a separation.
He keeps starting more businesses in CA for when GH ends. He is setting up a production facility because he want to become a producer.

I don't know how fundies she was, but they went to religious counseling to save their marriage. I don't know anything more about the Roland Emmerich thing. I read it on another gay message board a few years ago. There was even a pic of young Brandon at one Roland's 'parties'.

R44, I agree about the trailer trash character and her trashy fans. The actress who plays that role might want to take a shower occasionally. I can't imagine having to be in a romantic pairing with someone who doesn't care about minimal hygiene. Most of her fans will never accept Burton and most of Burton's fans will never accept her.
Don't know that those fans were buying the Monavie to keep the pairing together. I think most of them wanted to get close to Burton and thought that was the way to do it. He has a whole bunch of fangurls who go to all of his PAs, and they would do anything to go to bed with him. Don't know why they think because he was good-looking when he was younger, he would be a good lay. Many of his former fans have abandoned him now and he does PAs for 50 people.

R56, that fiasco was all on Kelly Monaco. She scheduled a video PA with Michael Saucedo's company, but typical of her, she got loaded instead and couldn't go through with it. She cancelled hours before the taping. The crew was already in place and they had to be paid, so Saucedo took a big hit. Last I heard, it was still in litigation. I was told they weren't surprised Monaco did that, and they had worded her contract very carefully so she's responsible for money damages if she cancelled, so she'll probably have to cover the refunds, the cost of the crew and damages to boot. Her fans tried to blame it on Saucedo, but Monaco is the one who messed up.
She routinely stood people up for events until they finally stopped asking her to participate. Fans don't sign up for her events because they know she won't show.
Burton never stopped being business partners with Saucedo. They've been doing businesses together since Saucedo was on GH.

The Melissa Reeves/Jason Brooks affair is the stuff of daytime legend, culminating in Scott Reeves bursting onto the Days set and finding Brooks and Reeves having sex in a dressing room.
Scott made Melissa leave right then and there, and he had her quit the show. This was all confirmed in court documents.
Prior to meeting Scott, Melissa was a pretty typical LA actress party girl. He claimed to be a virgin, they married very quickly and he kept/keeps her under his thumb. The Brooks affair was her "lapsing" back into her scarlet woman phase as far as he was concerned.

Zeman's ex-husband is/was a cosmetic surgeon who really screwed up her face. She hasn't done herself any favors since she got rid of him. Don't know why she doesn't have more sense than she does, but her once-beautiful face is a tragedy.
Don't know what Charleson's problem is, but I suspect she has gone to some bargain basement surgeons. She obviously got what she paid for. Both she and Zeman need to have their cheek implants removed and then lay off any procedures or injectables until their faces begin to look normal again. Zeman said earlier this year she is going to stop with the injections. Hopefully she'll hold to that.

GH also hired David Kreizman, VOTN. I'm thinking Cartini have been told to tank GH so there won't be a big outcry when it's cancelled. GH's ratings are still bad, so it's possible.
They brought in some VH veterans and then they wrote terrible stories for them and went against their history. They also brought OLTL actors, some of whom have been given contracts at GH. Roger Howarth and Michael Easton are now on GH, along with that untalented Alderson screecher who plays Starr.

Burton wants to play an action hero and that means Jason Morgan. He hates everything that is typically daytime, like romance.
He tried hard to break into movies and primetime, but the most he got was bit parts. A poster upthread was right when he said Burton was offered a good role but GH wouldn't let him take an out to do it. Spielberg wanted him for a movie, but he was unable to take the part. Who knows what it would have meant to his career. Possibly nothing.
As much as he hates it, daytime is his niche. He is a mediocre actor.

I've met that sad sack JP. Passanante is an asskisser and a drunk. She doesn't come up with ideas, she'll write whatever the HW and Exec Producer tells her to write. Her years at ATWT was writing whatever was told to her by Chris Goutman.
I'm sure she's popular with the brass b/c she's a yes woman and will agree to whatever storyline. She basically is doing dialogue. She's not really creating story therefore she's less likely to cause a problem with the team of RC/FC since they are mostly in power (now) to come up with story albeit with some network interference. That's why she's there though. The network knows that keeping JP around is a threat. If RC goes too far JP will be named HW and will write whatever is told to her.

HW are SUPPOSED to come with story and understand the concept of pacing. They then check with the EP to see if it's possible to get things done. Then it gets worked out between the EP and brass.
The point is that they are supposed to have IDEAS. They all, even the shittiest of head writers were supposed to have STORY. Passanante is singled out b/c she did NOT do that. Goutman came up with ideas/story and Passanante just handled it from there. Notice the difference? JP didn't even do the basics of her job (have ideas think about future course of story), which all other HW did including that mess Dena Hackley. So yeah, JP gets singled out for being a bigger hack than most since she's just someone who's malleable. No values, no concern, no interest in beats or her creation, just 'yes, sir' and 'i'll take the check'.

My only experience with Richard Culliton was when he was GH headwriter after Guza was contractually obligated to go over to Sunset Beach when it first launched. While I know the show has gotten so very much worse since I quit watching it, which was right around the time Wendy Riche got ousted and Jill Farren Phelps brought Megan McTavish in, that was honest to God my least favorite period of the show.
I first started watching when Robert and Anna "died" in 1992, and watched pretty constantly for the next twelve or so years. Guza has obviously become a joke in the years since, but in the period after the Labines left and he took over, the show was really firing on all cylinders: Carly, Jax, the return of the Cassadines, and Lesley's return from the dead. And then that just broke, and broke some more.

And while many soap fans are bright and have a sense of camp, it is a genre that attracts very obsessive fans and not that bright fans that will do anything to be near or get extra time with the star. Burton offers extra time with himself to those who agree to sign up for the juice company pitch, and if they agree to be sales people he gets a cut of their take.

I understand why a lot of the stars have their side businesses: They don't get paid that much relative to the amount of work most of them do, and they live in an expensive city. And for every Julianne Moore, Meg Ryan, Demi Moore, or Judith Light, there are a hundred that never do more than a year or two on a show.

The previous leadership of GH, all three of whom have been fired now, caused many of its current problems.
Brian Frons, President of ABC Daytime, was convinced he was a creative genius instead of a buffoon. He forced himself on ABC's soaps to the extent that he appeared in GH's titles as its Creative Consultant. He was a mammary-worshiping moron who had no idea what the genre of soaps was about or what soap fans wanted to see. He is considered the ultimate soapkilla, having murdered soaps at CBS before he went to ABC. At ABC he killed Port Charles, then under his iron-fisted "creative" control and horrible story ideas, All My Children and One Life to Live nose-dived in the ratings and died.
Jill Farren Phelps was Executive Producer. She's an odd woman with strange ideas about what she will allow on her soaps. She had previously inflicted fatal wounds on a couple of CBS soaps by killing off their tentpole characters before she moved on to ABC to see what kind of damage she could do there. She's pretty much a flat-out bigot who makes such pronouncements as no one wants to see romance between old people and good girls are boring. Her stories are trash, with no concern for the fact that the soaps are ongoing, not episodic. She has a history of killing off major tentpole characters and did not allow multi-generational stories, both concepts at the heart of soaps.
Bob Guza loved to tell teenage boy blow 'em up stories, not quite a soap staple and not something most viewers cared to see. He built a talented writing staff at GH, not that it did much good when Frons and Phelps refused to approve his stories. Steve Burton loved Guza because he wrote the kind of stories Burton wants to act, teenboy fantasies but without any sex.
GH became a battleground for those three massive egos. Frons was determined GH only existed to showcase Kelly Monaco's breasts. Phelps had her own terrible ideas, and GH would have become the Carly show if she had her druthers. Guza only liked to write mob stories and had no interest in other characters, like the medical personnel at General Hospital.
The other two fired Guza and replaced him with a scriptwriter who became a scab during the writers' strike. He had no clue how to pace or write for the entire cast, and he decimated GH's talented writing staff to protect his own job.
GH now has the team in place that could have chosen to write a solid farewell to OLTL but proved they don't have the tiniest spark of creativity or respect for the genre. They're putting together a staff of writers who have killed other soaps, so GH's death is a foregone conclusion.

Quite a bit of incorrect information has been recounted today.
r179 When Guza took over in 1996, he did create Carly and Jax and bring back the Cassadines. However, he was not responsible for Leslie Weber's return. That was Richard Culliton. And when Guza came back after a year at Sunset Beach, he had no interest in doing anything with the character of Leslie. That's why Denise Alexander has gotten such shoddy treatment all these years.
r185 The actor's name is Bradford Anderson, not Bradley.
r194 Have you ever heard of NBC soaps? Frons and JFP did their share of damage over there too, more so than at CBS, but you don't mention it.
Frons was head of CBS daytime in 1982 when he canceled Search for Tomorrow. After NBC picked up Search and Frons moved to head NBC daytime, he again canceled Search in 1986. Frons also played the character of God in an episode of Santa Barbara.
JFP is responsible for undermining Santa Barbara to the point that when the Dobsons came back, the show had changed too much from their original concept for them to get it back on track. JFP is also responsible for major fatal damage at Another World including the gruesome murder of Frankie Frame, the killing off of Ryan Harrison and firing of the actress playing Amanda Cory, as well as bringing in numerous new characters who had no connection to the main families.
Incidentally, Guza was also a writer on Santa Barbara. Thus, Guza, Frons and JFP all met there. From what I've always heard, after Angela Shapiro left as head of ABC Daytime in 2002, someone at ABC came to JFP and Guza asking for recommendations for a new head and they both suggested Frons.
Also r194, OLTL's ending may not have been perfect, given that at the time they thought they were moving to the internet three days after the final ABC episode. However, the final weeks were a loving tribute to the show and the characters that honored its history and its audience. Ron C. and Frank did a fantastic job.
If you disliked the OLTL finale so much, tell us a soap finale that did satisfy you.

Do I have to love another soap finale in order to dislike OLTL's? That makes no logical sense. Most soaps seem to bring in wrecking crews who are charged with decimating the shows. Most of the soap lovers I know believe Prospect Park was a red herring all along.
There were some elements that I enjoyed toward the end of OLTL. I could have done with a lot less of other elements.
I wasn't watching any NBC soaps during Frons and JFP's path of destruction there; that's why I didn't include that network. I have read about what they did at NBC, apparently for the sake of their version of drama. They are both very bad combinations of huge egos, no talent and no respect for the genre in which they're working.
My post was already entirely too long, so I chose to leave out some things. I didn't feel I could include everything. You've done a good job at filling in some blanks.
Guza and JFP recommending Frons has always been a head-scratcher. Perhaps their previous experience with him was different from that of viewers. Anyway, I bet they have both kicked themselves since then, especially Guza.
The perfect testament to Frons' genius is The Revolution.

Carly, as originally conceived, was a schemer, but not a whore. She might have been a little sympathetic just because Sarah Brown was such a good actress. And when Guza returned to GH, he had her finally "come out" to Bobbie in what was a surprisingly tender moment. Carly hadn't been able to hold Baby Michael, Bobbie told her a story about how she'd gotten to hold her daughter one time before she was taken away, and that gave Carly the strength to pick Michael up for the first time and finally tell Bobbie the truth. Of course, her adoptive mother, played by the faboo Lois Nettleton was also there and screwed it up completely, and it gave Jackie Zeman some of her best scenes outside of BJ's death. I still remember Bobbie going to confront Luke over his lying to her and telling her that her daughter was dead.
I believe Jackie scored her only Lead Actress nomination for those scenes. She'd also been nominated for Supporting the year before, I assume for other stuff relating to the Carly story.

Herbst stayed away from the Monavie stuff, except for an interview in which she said she drank a small amount of Monavie every day. That was probably on behalf of her husband -- who was and is still selling it -- rather than Burton.
That was early on and she distanced herself after that.
She seems to stay away from their money-making schemes.

Best soap opera finale episode(s) in my humble opinion was Texas. Everyone gathered for a party to commemorate the TV station being taken over by someone else. They celebrated all they had accomplished at the TV station. Final words were Justin Marshall raising his glass of champagne and saying, "To Texas."
Next favorite finale was Edge of Night. We got a goodbye party in the form of Miles and Beth's wedding reception, but a new mystery began seconds before the final scene. The mysteries continued even we wouldn't be there to see them.
And third favorite finale was Search for Tomorrow. Stu saying, "What are you searching for?" Jo: "Tomorrow. And I can't wait."
My least favorite finale was Another World. Two gorillas named Richard and Carolyn escaping? Really? That's how they said goodbye to a 35 year old show.
Second least favorite finale was As The World Turns. Didn't feel like I had any closure at all. No real goodbyes at all. Just another day in Oakdale.
Interestingly, it was Chris Goutman who was responsible for the ATWT finale and the Another World finale.

r236 The Edge of Night finale also had music by the Beatles. Not covers of a Beatle song, but the originals.
I know they used "If I Fell." Think there was another Beatles song in there too.
These days, the fees for the Beatles originals are astronomical. That's why movies or TV shows who use covers.
Edge finale aired on Dec. 28, 1984. No idea what the licensing fee for a Beatles song wold have been at that time.
All soaps started using popular music starting about 1982. So, maybe Edge had it in the budget to use the song. Or the licensing fee was reduced. Or maybe both.

The GH cast has taken some big pay cuts and anything more they cut is probably going to pay Roger Howarth's salary. It's one thing to be asked to take a pay cut to save the show you're working on; it's quite another to fund the career of a monster ego who is probably not taking a cut.

Burton has been making millions per year for quite a few years. He owns any number of successful businesses and he has invested wisely. He made multiple millions off his fans when he was selling Monavie. He's been setting up a production studio so he can go into that end of the business. He could retire quite easily. Not everybody has to continue earning a salary to survive.
He doesn't live big; his idea of an exotic vacation is Hawaii. He lives in a rental and his wife lives in a McMansion outside of Franklin TN. They aren't Hollywood people and they live quietly. Last I knew, he was driving a Mercedes that was given to him by Monavie.

I'm glad Reckell is finally getting out. He totally despises her and hates working with her. That, R355, is acting. It's impossible to pick up on his feelings for her when he's working with her.
Reckell is the only one of the three who probably has a future in acting.

Supposedly GH cast on the chop block are SB- by choice, LLC, SR, BA, JL, JC and few others. DRAKE family totally out and LW being decasted and replaced with one TB or SJB, both available.

R371, allegedly ES is visiting but she is on the record saying she'd be happy to work in LA. The rumors are crazy but I can see them trying it as GH can't get a significant bump to save their lives. It does seem their lives do depend on it, so we'll see. Status quo ain't working.
FV has always been a snake but he loved his show and believed in it. Bringing on ES even for a cameo says a lot. Supposedly KDP is a regular and FL is only for "a chunk of the summer" with possible returns. So Vic must be found and she goes home with him. FL also has theater committments so I could see her cycling in and out as it's shot in LA.

If they continue this plan to turn GH into some kind of OLTL hybrid, the show will be even more doomed than it is now. The GH fans will revolt and tune out. When Claire Labine started writing for this show, she didn't bring over Maeve Ryan and host of Ryan's Hope characters. She wrote for GH and created new characters and stories.

|by Anonymous||reply 376||05/07/2012|
This isn't about reviving OLTL - this is about saving a lot of jobs and keeping GH on the air by doing what they think they have to in order to save it. Yes, they could come in and create new characters and MAYBE establish them enough to bring new audience members in. But these guys don't have unlimited time to do this - at best, they have another year; realistically, they've bought themselves another six months before having to worry about the ax again.
As much as the GH audience might hate it - bringing on the OLTL characters not only gives them the most bang for their buck in terms of possibly getting more people to watch GH, but it saves the need to create new characters out of nothing - they have established characters that will be 'new' to GH.
This isn't the ideal situation for anyone - but it's the best and quickest solution to try and get the ratings up. If RC and FV had simply moved on from OLTL and it kept on running, and they have two or three years to work on it, then they would be able to wait for GH viewers to rediscover the show - but they don't have that luxury of time right now. Desperate times call for desperate measures. It may not work - in other circumstances, I would probably be against it (OLTL was okay, but nothing mind blowing to me), but this is like medicine that I understand - take it and hopefully, things will be better in the end.

Also, in the last year of it's life, OLTL's ratings were crushing GH's. There are the inevitable Sonny/Jason fans who are up in arms but if FV and RC can get the OLTL viewers over to this show, it won't matter. They can lose some of their current viewers and the ratings will still rise by bringing in the OLTL fans who, historically, have always been more loyal than the GH ones.

If there was time, that would be great - in ideal conditions. These aren't ideal conditions. They can't bring back all the old GH characters and hope that the audience GH once had a decade + ago come back - they might, but not immediately. And again, they don't have TIME to wait for the audience to come back. It needs to happen fast - now. Bringing in OLTL characters - while bringing back some old GH characters (which they've done) is the best way to get a larger audience fast - if it works. It's a long shot but it's the quickest solution.
I am a GH fan, much longer than OLTL and bigger (I started in 1979). And I would prefer it to be classic GH. But at some point, you have to realize what reality is today.

Is Lesley Webber still on (or did they bring her back)? That actress could open the flood gates. To me she personified the typical soap actress.

OLTL spent almost all of its time on air trailing GH. One brief fluke when GH was down, does not mean the GH should become OLTL. Enought with the Ron pimping.
|by Anonymous||reply 386||05/07/2012|
As a long-time viewer of both OLTL and GH, this is the problem as I see it. GH needed a major overhaul. Viewers were tired of the mob and the show's emphasis on a group of unpopular characters to the exclusion of the rest of its cast.
Rather than do anything to improve GH's fundamental problems, RC and FV opted to continue the never-ending emphasis on the mob, which has been killing GH for years. What we have now is a total focus on the worst aspects of GH along with importing some of the worst of OLTL's cast who have been and will be incorporated into the mob stories.
Added to that, the writing is terrible. There's a caricature of a woman suffering from DID who is apparently supposed to be the funniest thing ever. She has been ambiguously raped (ambiguous rape is RC and FV's version of a ha-ha joke), and she careens around in a storyline that makes no sense on any level and is anything but humorous.
The hideous Starr Manning was the first OLTL import. Her boyfriend and child were immediately wiped out in a car wreck so she is free to cavort with Michael, one of the worst GH characters ever conceived. She has already begun her dreadful "singing" on GH and more of that has been threatened.
The next OLTL import was the narcoleptic John McBain. Having watched this man sleepwalk through two previous shows, many of us are not inclined to enjoy him for a third round.
Todd and Tea will be coming next. Who cares? I didn't like them on OLTL and I won't be watching them on GH.
GH already has its own redeemed rapist, the reprobate Luke, who FV and RC are doing their damnedest to redeem again. They have even brought back Anna Devane and re-written history to make it appear she and Luke are old friends (they weren't; she would not have associated with him). Anna's sole purpose is to prop up tired ass characters like Luke that nobody wanted to watch anyway.
Heather Webber (played by the sublime Robin Mattson) has been brought back. So far her sole purpose is to be another prop for the same tired ass characters.

I wasn't here for Daytime Dish, but I did think OLTL was definitely DL's favorite soap, in that there was almost always a thread going about it that would often get to 600 posts if it wasn't nipped in the bud by the Webmaster. I remember particularly "Ford go bye bye", in which the OP lamented the imminent end of "David A. Gregory and his divine chest and abs" (before the former gynecomastia sufferer was granted a reprieve and allowed to stay on).
I never knew there was such a DL following for Days of Our Lives until recently when the threads about Chandler Massey and Freddie Smith have exploded.

I don't see how any "fan" could find fault with Frank Valentini. His penny pinching and tight control over production kept OLTL on the air years longer than Frons wanted it to. The only reason it was on the air until 2012 was because ABC could never justify canceling it when it was being made for dirt cheap and turning a profit. The money they were saving on OLTL was funding over budgeted AMC and GH for years. You don't have to agree with every creative decision he made (and he didn't make many Frons did) but please respect that OLTL would have been gone five years ago if it weren't for FV. He deserves a good deal of credit.

OLTL was definitely DL's favorite soap. The only other time another soap got play on the board was ATWT b/c of the Luke/Reid storyline. Those Van Hansis L/R threads were crazy long. All other soap threads were focused on OLTL. I gave up on OLTL for years so that would annoy me as hell that no one cared to talk about the new Will on Days or what was going on with Y&R.
I watched the last year of OLTL and I have to hand it to RC and FV, the show looked pretty good for being the only ABC soap in the black. Ron was also campy which I could appreciate it.
I did watch OLTL during their gay storyline so I did like RC then even though he had a tendancy to go over the top. At least the show presented the most realistic gay sex without fear. ATWT, Days and all others are a bunch of pussies when it comes to kissing and sex scenes between their characters. To me that showed that FV tried as much as possible to stand by out side while Frons tried to destroy OLTL.
Love Heather Webber and the oldies on GH since those were my favorite years. Their work only started appearing two months ago thus they deserve time to clean up the old shit the show had and try to create something else. I'm not going to rag on them when their start off point was on a show that destroyed all the families. Would take years to restore GH back.
Hope it's true that Sonny and Jason are out. Would love SJB returning as Carly. Hate the current ugly heiffer playing her.

He was just the opposite during his time on ATWT and OLTL. Very easy going and easy to work with. However, the break up of his marriage and Terri's marriage did cause people to pick sides at ATWT.

Okay, R512, but my point still stands.
The number of shows is decreasing. A decade ago there were 10 or 11 soaps. Now they are down to only 4 of them, and while you may be correct that 2 of them that were canceled still made this year's cut-off, the point is that the talent pool is getting smaller and smaller.
So the bottom line is that it doesn't really matter whether there are technically 6 shows in this year's entries, because that is a huge drop from the 11 they once had, and it will be down to 4 next year.

I will say this about Austin Peck - he's always been a pretty face and hot body, but little talent to back it up. HOWEVER, on OLTL, he showed that he had really grown as an actor. I mean, he won't be winning major acting awards any time soon, but he has loosened up over the years and found his strength in a more comedic role.

You know Peck sort of surprised me on ATWT. I kind of liked him, which I didnt expect

Since some of you have hi-jacked this thread all to hell, I find it only fitting to end it on a Burton note
