Geary is a major dick. Worked with him and he was the least famous person in the project but acted like he was the start. No one else behaved that way. Rita Mae Brown stole Fannie Flagg from Susan Flannery who is not closeted. She was when she was with FF but hasn't been since. Why anyone would want Flagg or the heinous Brown is a mystery but... All My Children's Palmer Cortland James Mitchell, who was dancer/Curly in Oklahoma and Paul in the Bandwagon, was in/out. His long time partner was legendary costume designer Albert Wolsky, who is still among us. Treated him TERRIBLY and had a young piece of ass on the side for at least 20 years. Then there was Another World's Constance Ford who was a friend of Ray Burr's. He was instrumental in getting her cast her in several epis of Perry Mason--he did that for a lot of gays. She was not closeted (for the time) and her career paid the price.

Susan Flannery is GAY! This is from wiki...ignore the part about cunt Brown feeling bad for anyone, though.

Flannery has an adopted daughter, Blaise. Gay rights activist Rita Mae Brown socialized with Flannery in Los Angeles in the mid-1970s. They met through their mutual friend Fannie Flagg. Brown wrote the following about Flannery in her 1996 memoir Rita Will.:[7] She'd been a star in a long-running TV program and had left to take a prominent role in a film. Almost white-blonde, with a heart-shaped face, blue eyes and a great figure, she appeared every inch a woman ready to become a major movie star. She had looks, talent and drive. What she lacked was the ability to kiss ass. Just when her career should have rocketed, it began to drop to Earth. Approaching forty added to the tension. Word got about [directors and screenwriters] that she was difficult. That was amended to "difficult dyke." It wasn't too long before she languished in her beautiful shared Montecito, California home wondering what the hell had happened. Were Susan at the same career fulcrum today [in 1996], she'd have a fifty-fifty chance of swinging up. In the mid-seventies, she had no chance. Today she's back on television [in supporting roles and character parts].

Because she didn't marry to play the game, she might as well have announced that she was gay. Other people announced it for her. She kept silent but stiff-armed any attempts to create a bogus heterosexual life. She and Fannie [Flagg] had been together for eight years. The cracks in their relationship widened under the pressure. Many of Susan and Fannie's friends knew they were lovers, but many didn't. The isolation, under the circumstances, had to have been extremely painful for Susan. My heart went out to her. After my initial visit [to their Montecito home], the three of us palled around together. The more I knew Susan, the more I liked her. If there had been a way for the three of us to live together, I would have tried it because I grew to respect Susan and to value her for the generous and kind person she is. Like her Irish forebears, she engaged her crisis with good humor and the hope that she'd learn something.[8]

And from Flagg's page: In the late 1970s, Flagg had a relationship with American writer Rita Mae Brown, whom she met at a party in the Hollywood Hills hosted by Marlo Thomas. The couple briefly shared a house together in Charlottesville, Virginia, before breaking up.[18][19][20] According to Brown, Flagg also lived for eight years with former The Bold and the Beautiful actress Susan Flannery.[21]

by Anonymousreply 77March 24, 2018 2:17 PM

Okay, let's stop fussing about a dumb GIF and talk about this subject.

There are very few out soap stars. I'm trying to think of one that I know that has been out and been on their show at the same time and Greg Rikaart is the only one who comes to mind. Most of the ones who have come out have done so after their roles ended (Gregg Marx from DAYS and ATWT, Maureen Garrett from GL, Wesley Eure from DAYS).

Many of the others mentioned have had gossip about them for years.

Lady Geary is Hiding In Plain Sight, so to speak. An academic book published a decade or so ago disclosed he was gay and HIV positive, which was a reason why Genie and La Geary stopped kissing on the show (and may have led to their fallout).

Dee Dee Halls is another one oft-assumed to be a lesbian. All signs point to this one being true, although Jane Elliot, a good friend of Dee's, is straight but is hilariously often assumed to be gay.

There's long running rumors about Jacob Young (who supposedly fell in lust with Stephen Martines/Colton Scott, so much so that a serious brother-brother chat on screen led to an intense dressing room fuck session after the scene was done) and Michael E. Knight (that James Scott - yes, he of EJ's 13.5 x 8.5 - did a mindfuck number on Michael and had Michael head over heels in love with him).

There are a number of stars who were or are Hiding In Plain Sight, including Susan Flannery, Ian Buchanan, and Christian LeBlanc.

I remember hearing about Chris Bernau (GL's original Alan) over the years. He had an enormous (and understandable) crush on Grant when Grant joined GL and Grant was playful with him - apparently Grant came to work one day in a tight t shirt and tight jean cutoffs and when Chris asked where he'd come from, he smirked and said, "The Shaft." (name of a gay bar in NYC)

There have been rumors here about ATWT's Michael Park and also ATWT's Scott Holmes (separate rumors).

Going back to R1 - Have heard about most of those folks with the exception of John McCook. I think he's just a bad 70's style actor, not gay! LOL.

One nuance that is just lost on the DL but what I've observed in the industry and in theater overall is that many - not all, but many - actors have....let's call it a bisexual gene. It doesn't mean they're always bi, but I've seen guys do a role and.....it's hard to explain, but it's more than just immersing themselves in a culture or the identity of a role. It's in the actual art of acting, the ability to get into the head of a character, have deep empathy for that character, live that character's truth, etc. etc. etc.

Point being, for some actors I don't think a simple "gay" or "straight" label works. There's just a fluidity there, and the and/or channels most other people are in don't seem to fit them very well.

[quote]What about Michael E. Knight? I know he was married to Catherine Hickland, but he has always pinged. Didn't he make a fool of himself over James Scott? What was the story there again?

The story was that Scott knew Knight had a bit of a crush on him and kind of teased him and was a bit cruel about it. I think it was obvious enough that the rest of the cast was turned off by Scott's behavior. He was not on the show much longer, but the rumor is that he was let go because the actor playing Zach did not want a son that old. Eventually Scott was gone and his TV father got Scott's love interest who was a bit younger than him.

It was a bit more complex than that. James knew MEK liked him and decided to egg him on, but MEK had no idea it was all a game and fell for him. As one would - James Scott is beautiful.

I've heard other people were egging James on, but all the same, it was a very cruel thing for him to do, and it probably greased the chute for his early departure. He was, to be honest, awful on AMC as well. He was very green and if you ever get a chance, watch his first day on air. It's James reading cue cards and it's painfully bad. He obviously got acting lessons, learned his way around a camera and got much better.

I did a charity event with Michael E Knight and at the end I had to help him out because he had a bit too much to drink. I walked him to his car service and he stuck his arm through my suit jacket and said "damn you have a hard body." I just laughed it off. He was rubbing my side as we walked and when we got to his car service he whispered in my ear - you should come with me. I politely declined.

Yes - I said teased him, but meant to say he was a tease to him, kind of leading him on. Scott was really green when he first showed up. I don't how the character was written actually helped.

Knight was still handsome when I started watching the show after his first return, but I saw a youtube clip of his first appearance, and man was he pretty. The character also still had a bit of a dark edge that he would for the most part lose.

Sorry if slightly off topic though it does connect through Susan Flannery: there are reruns of "Match Game" on BZZR channel and Fannie Flagg is on there all the time, of course. She has written a couple of my favorite books, especially her first one ("Coming Attractions") BUT I am starting to wonder just how she is writing them. Maybe by speaking into a tape recorder and having a secretary type them up?

Because the woman looks borderline uneducated (Alabama) on "Match Game". Can't even spell words like "Weight' (she wrote down "Waite") and many more. It's either inspirational that she overcame it or just strange that she is a popular writer who can barely spell "Cat".

Watch it and you'll see. She spells more words wrong on her answers than right. Never noticed it before either.

I went with a large group to a play Van was in (Charles Busch - can't remember it) and he played the gay son, hot, hot and afterward he came out and talked to us. One aggressive fan asked about the kissing ban and Van hesitated then just let loose with his frustration. He didn't name blame anyone but agreed it was so stupid and no straight couples were subjected to it. He promised to talk to TPTB and urged us to call in, write in. His bf was there that night, though behind him and when they left they walked together. Van was shaking his head. I can't imagine the pressure put on him to stay 'closeted' which is so stupid. The show had no other buzz than Luke and Noah. NO ONE cared about Lily, Katie, Carly as the ratings bump was clearly based on NUKE. CBS/P&G/Televest didn't realize the gold mine they had; instead they listened to Grannies in their rocking chairs who didn't want to 'that'. Fuck them.

Actually, it was P&G that cancelled Edge. ABC was willing to continue airing it. In markets where Edge aired at 4 p.m., as the network intended it to air, the show did very well. It was #2 in the 4 p.m. time slot in NYC. It was stations bumping it to the next morning or airing it late at night that killed Edge in the national ratings. Of course by 1984, a number of markets quit carrying the show entirely.

That said, two of the show's leading men were both dead less than a year after Edge said farewell at the end of Dec 1984. Dennis Parker committed suuicide in late January 1985 while Joel Crothers was dead in November 1985.

Liza Colby is one of the most underrated villains in daytime history. Her return was so triumphant in the mid-90s but you could tell that Marcy was bummed that she never matched her insane SB stardom.

by Anonymousreply 255March 30, 2018 4:53 PM

I liked Liza's return to AMC, but then they softened the character and she never looked good, it wasn't so much that she had gained weight (she had) but she looked bloated and it looked like she had three strands of hair on her head. Also, it was always going to be tough for her to break-out on AMC, as a woman in her 30s-40s going against Lucci, especially by the '90s when Lucci was at the peak of her fame. Liza wound up being like an off-brand Erica.

Irene Dailey crushed on Susan Keith. It was obvious from their scenes. Dailey played it like Aunt Lez ached sexually for Cecile.

by Anonymousreply 257March 30, 2018 4:57 PM

Also, Liza just seemed like she came from a different era of the show. When she came back, Lucci, Eva LaRue, Sydney Penny, Cady McClain, Ripa, Robin Mattson, and Teresa Blake were the main female attractions. Even Barr began to be sidelined. The character didn't work as a spoiler for Tad/Dixie. She really didn't come into her own until they paired her with Adam.

by Anonymousreply 258March 30, 2018 4:59 PM

Her first year she was on fire. Still thin, gorgeous hair. You could buy that Tad would cheat on Dixie with her. She was a dragon lady running WRCW and I loved her scenes with Erica. Then she was a great foil for Adam but yes- they proceeded to make her this super sweet simp and she was a pale shadow of her formerly self. But her first 2 years back were excellent.

Also- AMC always neutured their vixens over time. Liza, Natalie, Gloria, Janet...

[quote]Then she was a great foil for Adam but yes- they proceeded to make her this super sweet simp and she was a pale shadow of her formerly self. But her first 2 years back were excellent

Yes - at some point she went from being the female version of Adam to being another victim-wife of his. It did not help that they paired Stuart and Marion (speaking of defanging someone to the character's detriment) and they would go around repeating how Adam was mean to Liza. Marion went from being fun to being a nag and Stuart went from being Adam's conscience to being self-righteous and judgmental. Plus, a little Stuart went a long way.

I remember reading Liza said she wanted the character to be more like Brooke, so I wonder if that was also part of the "softening" of the character. I know she is a minister now, so maybe she did not want to play the character as an amoral schemer.

I've heard rumors that Val Dufour was gay, but I also heard whispers that he was involved with at least two FEMALE costars (Susan Sullivan and Morgan Fairchild). So what's the verdict on Val?

by Anonymousreply 269March 30, 2018 10:38 PM

Can't believe no one has said Jill Larson yet. She allegedly hooked up with Cady at some point. Cady is now married to Jon Lindstrom.

Another one is former AMCer Keith Hamilton Cobb -- he faded into obscurity though.

R46, Richard Biggs wasn't a gay porn star -- I think you are confusing him with Jeff Griggs perhaps? Richard was married, had kids, was on "Babylon Five", and died suddenly of an aortic dissection. Very sad.

Other names that come to mind are Heather Tom, Bree Williamson and Beth Ann Bonners (the last two were supposedly hot and heavy together).

Ingo is another -- at an Emmy party one year, I saw him practically beg Cameron M. to give him his number so they could "hang out". Cam refused and seemed completely uncomfortable. Ingo and Josh Duhamel got into a big fist fight later that night. The soap mags reported that Ingo had hit on Josh's girlfriend, but those in the know found out he really had made a pretty aggressive pass at Josh himself.

Marcy Walker allegedly walked in on husband Billy and another man, which ended her marriage. But Billy dates and marries a lot of women for someone who is gay.

Josh Duhamel was gorgeous as a young 20something, that's for sure.

But he must have really been giving off strong sexual vibes at that age too. In an interview a longtime ago, Josh talked about being hit on by an older AMC castmate (who was not named, but was obviously James Mitchell). I also recall the rumor about Cameron Matheson hitting him up for a three way. But now we're hearing that Ingo was hitting on him too.

by Anonymousreply 276March 31, 2018 3:41 AM

I heard the story as Matheson propositioning Josh -- a few times, although I think they might have all been on this board...

Mitchelll had to be closing in on 80 when twentysomething Josh joined the show. Palmer was his stepfather, so they certainly worked together. Loved Palmer, but that would be a little creepy.

The "Cam propositioning Josh" thing could have happened, but not that night. I think the Ingo/Cam and Ingo/Josh stuff was the night of the 2001 Daytime Emmys, if memory serves. The "cover" story was that Ingo hit on Josh's girlfriend. I could be wrong, but I think Cam was there alone that night, or his date joined him later in the evening.

But I really think whoever told the Cam/Josh story is confused and heard it second or third hand. Honestly, I never thought Cam was gay or even bi.

R102 Peter Bergman is not the nelliest hetero on the planet. He is gay. I have told this story once before, but here goes again for anyone who is interested. I was a flight attendant for Delta from the mid eighties until retiring 10 years ago. In the summer, Delta offered seasonal flights from LGA to various summer camp and summer cottage destinations in Maine, VT and NH. This was a carryover from the old Northeast Airlines which was purchased by Delta in 1972. I remember that it was a DC9, and it was about a half full flight. I was working in the back with another girl. At that time I was a soap watcher, so I knew him from AMC. The Cliff and Nina storyline was almost as big as the Luke and Laura one at GH. Bergman boarded the flight with a guy who was in his early 20s--so he was about 10 years younger that PB. They were relatively subdued on the ground, but once drinks were served the inhibitions dropped and they were acting like teenagers on a date. Most of the crew was dumbfounded because everyone knew he was married. I on the other hand was not one bit surprised. If it looks like a duck, it often is a duck.

Which is why NBC poached Kin Shriner from ABC to their new soap “Texas” paying him then the highest salary in daytime ($300,000), which in today’s dollars would be a million dollars.

But even with Kin and superstar Beverlee McKinsey on the show, rating for Texas was flat. And once both Kin and Bev left “Texas" ratings fell even further.

Michael Swan is a big Trump supporter. He seem very vain and posts lots of show offy shirtless shots on his Facebook page. He has a nice body (still even) but never thought much of his face. His nose job was a bad one, too.

The pregnant actress who was fired for getting pregnant was probably Kari Wuhrer (ex-Reese on GH). She ended up suing ABC, not sure of the outcome.

Swan isn't very conservative when it comes to his sex life. One of Swan's good friends was producer Kenneth Johnson...their friendship ended when Swan starting sleeping with Johnson's college-age daughter. I remember Swan said something to the effect Johnson should grow up. Apparently Swan lost out on the role of Mike Donovan in 1983's V because of this.

Warlock had long left and been on Baywatch by then. I did a photo shoot at his place and it was funny because the place was full of guys, three or four and Kin insisted this guy be in the shots with him. The best part was he hit on me. As the photo shoot was wrapping up he asked me if I wanted to hang out. I regret not saying yes.

Spent a memorable night with Michael David Morrison at the Helmsley Windsor back in 1990. Met him at a bar in NYC and took him back to the hotel I was staying at. Did not recognize him as being on a soap until the next morning when he said he had to go because he was "...shooting that day..." as opposed to what had occurred the night before. He accompanied me to "Night of 100 Stars - at Radio City Music Hall since I had an extra ticket. Very sweet, funny, passionate but seemed troubled also. Stayed in touch intermittently and it was only later I learned he was married. That clearly explained some of his apparent torment.

(R410) WE kissed a lot and I mean a lot. He really liked doing that and we made it down to our underwear and almost shot just from the kissing and rubbing. I would surmise that he had at least 8 inches because when sucking him, I faced a challenge. I rimmed him for a while and he enjoyed it before pounding me. In the morning before he dashed off, he knelt over me and pumped my face. He was in great shape and said he worked out regularly but didn't want to get too beefed up. BTW, "The Night of 100 Stars" to which I referred was the 3rd in the series and was in May of 1990. It felt like a date because he was really in awe of some of the stars who participated in that installment - Katharine Hepburn, James Stewart, etc. He was genuinely nice and fun and would have made good partner material at the time. I didn't know he was married and didn't realize it until I read that they had a child the following year. Even though I saw him a couple more times when in NYC, we never discussed his marriage. He did proudly show a picture of his child to me but without saying anything specific, I knew not to bring up the subject of his private life.

And remember, when Mike finally forced "Jane Marie" (Jennifer) to do this in the re-trial, pregnant Amanda was so shaken by the news that she collapsed in the courtroom, went on to lose her baby, and nearly died herself.

It's interesting that many of the older women (most deceased) listed here were some of the funniest women on daytime TV. Lois Kibbee, Irene Dailey, Elizabeth Lawrence and Constance Ford all had great comic timing. When Elizabeth played Bess Lowell on "Guiding Light", her character flirted with Rick Heart's Alan Michael whom she said reminded her of her old boss (obviously something more) Brandon who basically dropped her when she became middle aged. She told him that if she was 50 years younger, they would make history, and you could tell that Elizabeth said that line in a sultry manner. Lois as Geraldine Whitney could be heartbreaking when her character went through something tragic, furious when somebody betrayed a loved one, yet very droll when dealing with Raven's antics. Irene obviously loved playing the comically busybody Aunt Liz (using a glass at a door as a gossip finding prop), and even though her character of Ada was often tender or blunt spoken, Constance Ford could slip in humor when the situation called for it. They should have had an Emmy or Soap Opera Digest awards during their day for scene stealing. Those four ladies were a lot of fun to watch on a daily basis, and especially in re-visits with many of their episodes available to watch years after their deaths.

These boys find a woman, they want kids, they get married; they probably don't eat out pussy but they fuck it, they have the kids. They work on these shows (well, now, just GH) and they have good lives.
