Adam Newman's shaved ballsack

And other vagaries vis a vis Genoa City

Pfft! nuAdam's balls haven't dropped yet.

by Anonymousreply 303/31/2020

Speaking of Adam, if not his ballsack—and believe me, I find nothing wrong with discussing his ballsack—someone typed this at the end of the last thread:

[quote]Adam brings nothing to the show IMO. I didn't miss him when he was gone & nothing has changed my mind with the recast. I'd be more than A-OK if Adam, Chelsea & Connor just moved away.

I would go with them. Without Adam, there is no show. Saddling him with Chelsea was not the greatest move, but in a program comprising nothing but non-great moves, I have decided to live with it. I actually find Chelsea more annoying than Connor, who reminds me a bit of me at that age.

They said they are going to air "classic" episodes to pad the number of episodes available. While I support that, the problem is that will just reinforce how horrible the show is right now.

by Anonymousreply 1003/31/2020

Unfortunately, it's not the stories.

People forced to stay at home will watch anything on the 'boob' tube, and in many cases, the TV is just left 'on' - running all day like white noise.

My brother sat and watched the "Penguin Cam" that NBC was also live-streaming on their website from the Kansas City Zoo.

He watched it for close to two hours, and honestly those penguins were providing more entertaining drama than Y&R.

It's not about the $1.99. Or the $20. It's about Muriel breaking the DL and refusing to fix it. The very moment she restarts "ignore threads," I will again become a paying member.

by Anonymousreply 1303/31/2020

I'm a paid subscriber. What are "ignore Threads"?

by Anonymousreply 1403/31/2020

R14 At the moment, ignored threads won't stay ignored.

Many of us want to hide the repetitive threads about the royals, or the 900000th "Which one of these guys is the hottest" troll threads. But they won't stay hidden.

by Anonymousreply 1503/31/2020

Until last summer, you could put threads you don't want to see every time you come to DL on "ignore." And they would disappear. And then Muriel, in her infinite Murieltude, decided to destroy that function.

I liked "ignore threads" because it enabled me to not have to look at Trump pics. Now, in order not to look at Trump, I have two inferior choices: 1. I can put the posters who start Trump threads on ignore. The problem with that is that they often post threads I do enjoy, which I miss unless they end up in my right column. 2. I can turn off link previews, which also provides a less enjoyable DL experience, though not as unenjoyable as looking at Trump every third thread.

If we had "ignore threads" once, why can't we continue to have it?

by Anonymousreply 1603/31/2020

What does this "ignore threads" issue have to do with starting endless new threads on the same topic, because someone is moaning about the paywall? (e.g. The last Y&R thread was good for another 400 replies.)

r19 Huh?

by Anonymousreply 2003/31/2020

R20 ... R18 doesn't address why the "ignore threads" issue results in the need to create countless new threads, and instead points to the paywall.

by Anonymousreply 2103/31/2020

Okay, r21. When the paywall is up, many fewer people post. Threads die. People continue to want to post, even if they are not paying, and people who are paying—except, apparently, for you—also want those posters to continue to post. So, to facilitate further posting, someone starts a new thread. It is most useful for the new thread starter to be a subscriber, as only a subscriber can post a link to the new thread.

As for your "it's really the pay issue," no, it's not. I was a subscriber until Muriel took "ignore threads" away. It's a highly efficient manner of dealing with threads I don't want to see, over and over and over, each time I sign in. As I said earlier, I will resubscribe the very instant Muriel restores "ignore threads."

It is not "really the pay issue," at least not for me.

Same question from me, they made this big deal like a year ago of how no one could take care of her at home the way they could in a professional facility, how no one had the time to devote, etc. And yet here we are, where her condition has deteriorated even more and now none of that is an issue.

Because now she's dying. I thought that's what Jack said sometime last week. She doesn't look it, though. I wonder if Theo is going to be a new Breath of Life for his grandma. I'd love to see him triumph over the execrable Jabottom, whom I now loathe more than any character in the history of the show (with the possible exception of Pinched Sphincterina).

The show said they brought Dina home to die.

As someone who has lived thru this with my parent it is a truly ugly time. YR doesn't have the balls to show it. That's why they never should've started this storyline.

When Alzheimer's grows truly advanced the patient can no longer swallow. That's when the family must decide to either tube feed them which prolongs a terrible life or withhold all fluids. Withholding fluids causes them to die within a few days to a couple weeks.

If Y&R was smart, they'd bring back someone Dina was friends with - or even an enemy, like Jill - and do a euthanasia storyline.

I lost the plot on Eastenders years ago but knew enough about the years since for this to be very meaningful. One of the best things they've ever done.

The big problem with Y&R is it either stays completely in the past (Victor vs Jack, Part 1,298,786) or it ditches history entirely.

Mrs. C was a character. We need more well drawn, well acted CHARACTERS on the show, with personality. Abby, Summer, Lola, et al have all the depth of a dishtowel.

by Anonymousreply 6004/05/2020

Jeanne WAS Katherine and played her for 40 years. At this point it’d be ridiculous to recast. Murphy told everyone she died while on that trip, so I don’t know how they would get around that without it being the stupidest thing ever on any soap. Plus it’d be an insult to Coopers memory. At this point, I really don’t think Katherine is needed anyway.

To bring Katherine back from the dead you would also have to completely change history. You would have to change her birthday for starters, because she would be 91 if you didn't. There is no reason to bring back a character that old.

OLTL tried resurrecting Victor Lord, in 2003, and it was just totally bizarre. When the original Victor Lord died in 1976, it was established that he had been born in 1916, making him sixty when he died. When they brought him back in 2003, they shaved 10 years off his age and said he was born in 1926, making him 77, instead of 87. Even though the actor they got looked more like 107. Of course there was a major difference in that unlike Katherine, OLTL had completely destroyed Victor's memory by then and made him into a sexual predator who molested his daughter and raped others. But, still there was just no good reason to bring back the character. I would say it started the downfall that eventually led to the show's cancellation.

Esther has been keeping Mrs. C on ice in the Chancellor basement. This stopped the aging process in its tracks and why the show has cast a younger actress (Scoche Marin) in the coveted role. Everything will be explained on screen.

R123 No, it sounds like they were just trying to make the scene with new teen Colleen (Lyndsy Fonseca) seem "ultra-dramatic", as if she'd never met Brad before, but that wasn't the case.

There had previously been a time when Brad was shuttling back and forth from Genoa City to New York City to visit his growing daughter. But Bitch Traci started to put up roadblocks to these visits (e,g, scheduling things for Colleen that would interfere with Brad's planned weekends, or they'd get cut short for some reason). Plus, Traci herself was supposed to bring Colleen to Genoa City at set times, and she started to renege on that.

Because of Traci's behavior, Brad actually had to haul her fat ass into court. The judge was none to happy with Traci's shenanigans - which were being done simply because Brad was getting close to Lauren Fenmore again, and Traci didn't want her near her daughter. I remember cheering when Traci got told off by the judge in open court and ordered to obey the visitation order, or else.

But long story short is, Brad had many scenes with child actress, Alanna Masterson, who was playing Colleen at the time. Masterson Colleen for a couple of years - looking about 6-8 years old during that time, so definitely old enough to know/remember that Brad was her bio-father.

I enjoyed the Friday classic - but there was a glaring continuity error. It was late evening in Genoa City, with a nighttime skyline seen from the windows of Jill's office, yet Dru and Neil were lounging in the afternoon sunshine on the beach in Antigua (two hours to the east of Wisconsin .. lol!).

Oh, and of course, that interior designer employed by Bradley just had to be a stereotypical gay bottom. Reminds me how Bill Bell nearly always portrayed male decorators, wedding planners, florists, etc. like that. I bet our designer fella would have loved to have provided a different kind of service to Hot Brad.

And I'm guessing they wouldn't show us the follow-up episode were John demanded that Jill terminate her pregnancy. WTH, no Billy Abbott?!? .. In any event, Jill couldn't go through with the abortion, and instead, drew up some kind of contract absolving John of his parental responsibilities, which John's attorney told him would not be legally-binding.

Also, rather funny how Eve Howard has appeared in both classics. Is that going to be the connecting theme here? .. lol!

R178 The tractor-farm accident happened to Cliff in 1995, but that was just written so that Hopeless could go running back to Kansas to care for Cliff.

The accident that killed Cliff happened the following year, and, at the time, it was said to be a car accident caused by a drunk driver. At that point, Hopeless was already in Kansas with Victor Junior (Adam). Right before Cliff's fatal accidnet, Victor had gone to Kansas in order to recuperate from being shot by Mari Jo Mason. That alone had pissed Nikki off. But when Victor returned to Genoa City, he planned on surprising Nikki with a marriage proposal, but that's when he got word of Cliff's accident, so he quick turned around and went back to Kansas to be with Hope. Nikki felt like she'd been stood up again, so she impetuously married Dr. Joshua Landers - which led into the Veronica Landers-Sarah the Maid storyline.

Y&R running out of new episodes next week sounds about right.

When LA went on lockdown and production was halted on March 16, it was reported Y&R had 4 to 5 weeks of episodes in the can. That would measure out to next week with Thursday falling on April 23.

Meanwhile GH was said to have 7 weeks in the can when it had to halt production on March 16. So, that would stretch out to about May 7. With "classic" episodes airing on Fridays and stretching one episode into two by adding tons of flashbacks, GH can probably stretch its new episodes out to May 28 or so.

Some other trivia:

It took three hours of make-up to get Michael Corbett and Michael Damian to look like "The Beast." Damian was originally supposed to be "Elvis" until the script called for them to have the same outfit. As for Corbett, he said he swallowed one of the wolf's teeth while having to dine in costume.

The most expensive costume of the lot, rather surprisingly, was Doug Davidson's "Captain Intrepid" outfit, which was custom-made at an outside costume shop and cost $3500.

They used two different wigs for Tracey Bregman's "Marie Antoinette." The Y&R hairstylist powdered them like in the olden days to make them look authentic.

Beth Maitland had to stand most of the time because her "Mae West" outfit was so form-fitting that it prevented from sitting down. The dress came from "The Carol Burnett Show" and had been designed by Bob Mackie.

The most expensive rental outfit was Jess Walton's "Cleopatra", which cost $900. It was Y&R costumer Greg York's intent to show off Jess Walton's midriff, but he thought something was missing, so he added the jewel in her naval, attaching it with double-stick tape. They had several on hand in case one or more fell out and got lost during the shoot.

Greg also said it took forever to find the glass (plastic) slipper sitting atop Peter Bergman's "Prince Charming" pillow. He was pleased at how "campy" it looked. (He knew our Aunt Jack ... lol!)

I was a GL fan in the 90's and used to bitch about the hooker dresses and pastel tents that the younger and older women, respectively, had to wear when Paul Rauch was producer. They were working with a budget of 12 cents an actor, even then, but compared to the look and feel of the soaps today, that was still the heyday apparently. And then came the Peapack years for GL, and it literally all went to shit.

Hilarious how for several years now, Soap Opera Digest typically just put a bunch of heads on their cover and airbrush accordingly so that everyone looks "young."

Braeden tweets that he wants Goddard back.

This is almost funny.

I can't imagine he knows much of anything about the character of Cane or "why he should be with us" other than the fact that he misses having ass-kissers around.

Braeden and Goddard probably shared only a handful of scenes together. I’m sure Goddard kissed everyone’s ass, considering him and the character should’ve been kicked to the curb like 10 years ago. How happy can Braeden be nowadays anyway considering Victor has been sidelined at home with Miss Piggy constantly .

by Anonymousreply 25504/24/2020

I think Goddard must have been a problem for others behind the scenes, especially Christel Khalil. Just two years ago she went recurring and wanted to spend less time doing the show. Now that they got rid of Goddard, she has returned in a more high profile way in a major business story. In the past month or so, she seems to have appeared as much as in the entire last year.

by Anonymousreply 25604/24/2020

While Goddard incessantly pandered to the Laniacs 24/7 (and still does), I think Khalil (quietly) knew just how limiting the dull, saccharine relationship was in terms of storyline.

For her part, Khalil had already been part of another fan-favorite pairing (with Michael Graziadei's Daniel) and presently, she's already showing potential with Jason Thompson's Billy.

And while I don't think she'd ever diss LANE (or Goddard), at this point, she'd probably be loathe to want him back, because a reunion is all his annoying fan base would clamor for.

So while she embraces working with other screen partners, he's stuck on LANE, and as seen last year, he became his own worst enemy by not doing so with the Traci material.

by Anonymousreply 25704/24/2020

I guess I don't understand why people came down so hard on him for not wanting a Cane/Traci storyline. He probably could have handled things more professionally. But that story has been done to death.

Monday April 27 -- Episode from March 1, 1990 features Katherine’s escape, Cassandra in danger, and Cricket happy to see Danny again.

Tuesday April 28 -- Episode from July 5, 2004 features Katherine’s intervention and Daniel learning Danny’s not his biological father.

Wednesday April 29 -- Episode from July 6, 2004 in which Katherine’s intervention continues, Cricket and Phyllis argue, and Nick confronts Cameron.

Thursday April 30 -- Episode from April 3, 2009 featuring Katherine and Jill’s cake fight, and everyone gathering for Billy and Chloe’s wedding.

Friday May 1 -- Episode from May 4, 2009 surrounding Katherine and Murphy’s wedding, and Victor learning Neil was hired by Katherine.

===========================

Unless one knows the stories from Monday's episode the whole thing comes off like a curiosity. Mark Derwin fans may enjoy seeing him as Cassandra's other 'bad' lover, Adrian Hunter.

The two episodes of Kay's 2004 intervention are only memorable due to the rainbow kaftan she was wearing along with Angels Rex and Phillip using the Chancellor dining room as their portal from heaven! (Yes, Phillip is still dead at this point .. lol!) .. I'm thinking Hot Cameron Kirsten might interest me more.

This episode (once again) shows how stupid the writing was to have Kay leave BILLIONS to barely-there grandson, Devon, when she had a much longer and deeper connection with granddaughter Mackenzie. These two grandchildren should have been treated equally in Kay's will.

Y&R only added crime in the early 80s when it went to an hour and had to fill up time. That's when we got Carl Williams and his boss Commander Lewis.

In fact, I kinda like seeing police and detectives who are generally uninvolved in the other stories and core families, because it comes off unrealistic when they're investigating or charging people they know or are related to with crimes.

I know, I must have watched Terry Lester as Jack, since he stayed until 1989, and we watched everyday when I was a little child. But, I just don't remember him, to me Peter Bergman is Jack. And, I know some of you will terribly disagree with me, but based on today's episode Bergman was better looking. He wasn't on enough for me to really compare the acting. We never watched Santa Barbara and I didn't watch ATWT when he was on, so I can't judge his acting. The only show that I know, I have watched, that he did, was an episode of Star Trek: Voyager, but he was an alien and didn't make a huge impression on me. Am I really missing something? Was he really special as Jack? Are there some clips on Youtube, showing his greatness?

Bergman's Jack was a little more racy, cheeky prep school boy grown up. Which still fit the role, but was different than Terry's interpretation.

by Anonymousreply 31905/05/2020

My issue was that Bell started to change the character of Jack to fit Bergman's "Prince Charming" persona. (Note the costume they had him wearing at the Masquerade Ball .. lol!)

Lester's Jack was this scoundrel playboy banging models, cheating on his young wife, fucking his stepmother, plotting to have a secret vasectomy so he wouldn't have any kids, and Jabot was just a means to wealthy lifestyle. For awhile there, he was even involved with Mama Dina at Mergeron, actually plotting against and stealing from Daddy's company.

But when Bergman took over, he didn't read sexy scoundrel. Instead, Jack was suddenly married to Nikki and lactating over her having his babies: one was lost to miscarriage, then another stillborn. This NuVersion of NuJack may have played well with Fraus, but it took the character in a somewhat eye-rolling NuDirection. And after these first few years, it got even worse with Bell's sappy, saccharine Vietnam retcon. I can't even imagine Lester playing that.

I didn't really accept Bergman or see "Jack" in the role until Alden became HW and played him in her Newman Enterprises takeover storyline where Jack was plotting with Brad Carlton and Michael Baldwin and using former lover, Diane Jenkins, once again to mount a coup. That was old school Jack.

Attorney Rafe, would have encountered young "Jack" (the boy's given name) through his work at legal aid/social services and discovered his link to Jack and Nikki. Of course, since "Jack" got their baby's heart, our onetime couple would naturally have been drawn to the teen, offering to jointly foster him.

Young Jack (we could change his name) would have been a good character to have around when Noah returned from New York a couple years later (2012) apparently about to come out himself. These two would have been about the right age for one another.

R342 Isabella is who Eva Whatsersnatch played before Desperate Hosewives.

by Anonymousreply 34905/08/2020

R342 Isabella is the call girl Michael enlisted to seduce Paul, while Christine was working some legal case abroad. In real life, (LLB had gone on maternity leave.) Michael knew Isabella from Michigan when he'd gotten her out of some legal fix, so she owed him. Anyway, it worked and Isabella ended up preggers with Paul's baby, and apparently did fall in love with Paul. Their baby boy was Ricardo Carl Williams (Ricky).

by Anonymousreply 35005/08/2020

How and why Paul didn't want to stay with hot tamale Isabella and raise Ricky with her was rather unbelievable. He could have come home to this every night instead of Cousin Itt. .. One of Paul and Isabella's sex scenes where she straddled him naked on a massage table she'd set up ranks right up there as one of the hottest ones this show ever did.

Is it me or are many of the classics repeats of previous classics? Certain they usually show the frying pan and theimposter and the Jill and Kay fight in the attic, as well as victor and Nikki‘s first wedding. Had not seen anything with Vanessa Prentiss before or expected too. But they have What fifty years x close to 300 episodes a year and we still have to see the same thing again? They can’t even go to the well properly.

The first ones, especially, are going to be the ones they have already digitized. They might be working on some other episodes.

by Anonymousreply 35305/10/2020

I read this on Twitter. There is a whole process that goes into making those old episodes TV ready.

1) They have to decide which episode(s). And the core of the episode has to be recognizable to the current audience and contain a key moment in history.

2) The episode has to be cleared.

3) Then the episode has to be digitized and then edited for content and time.

I loved that Vanessa Prentiss episode. I was not watching the show at that time (I was only three years old when that episode aired), but I read up on the storyline while I was watching and it seemed really good.

I somehow recognized the actress playing Vanessa as the niece of Joan Crawford’s character in Harriet Craig (I have really good facial recall).

by Anonymousreply 39705/17/2020

R394 Brock's biological daddy was Kay's first husband, "Gary Reynolds." .. We heard that Gary took Brock to Germany with him when he was 7-years old. (It was during that year when Kay had her affair with Arthur Hendricks and got preggers with Tucker McCall.) .. Charlotte Ramsey, Kay's drinking-carousing buddy during that time, described Gary as "a real mensch." At some point after Gary and Brock returned, Gary died.

We heard that when Brock was a child, Gary and Kay lived at "The Reynolds Ranch." This is where Victor and his young wife, Julia, moved to when they first came to town, with it eventually becoming "The Newman Ranch."

Kay's second husband, Phillip II, was Brock's step-daddy when Brock was a wildcat teenager. When Brock first showed up in Genoa City -- returning from Europe after his sex and drugs trip -- Phillip was skeptical that his stepson had changed. It was implied that the only fatherly things Brock ever looked for from Phillip was to help get him out of jams (one implication being that Phillip had helped arrange an abortion for not just one, but two girls whom randy Brock had knocked up while in high school).

by Anonymousreply 45605/28/2020

R456 Nope. .. During the Sarah-Ryder-Daisy story, Paul and Michael found a 1993 newspaper article from Green Bay that was about Sheila's sister "Sarah."

Sarah had been accused of being an evil night shift nurse, and she'd been implicated in the mysterious deaths of some elderly patients. .. In this article, Sarah was described as "a mother of two." The two kids were Daisy and Ryder, and with that we learned that Sarah had already been recruited by Sheila to be their mother way back then. .. So too, Daisy blamed Lauren for Sheila abandoning them, and in one rant, Daisy said that it was Lauren's fault that their mother was forced to flee to Los Angeles with them never seeing her. That happened in 1992. IOW, they already knew Sheila was their mother at that point in time and where she'd gone to.

And instead of any kind of SORASing, they actually presented information that these two made-up twins were actually aged naturally. When Ryder was arrested and wanted his half-bro Kevin to help him, it came out that he was 22-years old. Since it was 2009, this meant that he and Daisy would have been born in the 1987 time frame, which matches up with the information above. It would seem they were already toddlers when Sheila showed up in Genoa City in 1990 and started her obsession over Scott.

Back in the day, there used to be some great slash fiction out there on the 'Net featuring Korbel and JT.

With chubby Colleen in the picture, it was the perfect set-up for a "Ditch the Bitch, and Make the Switch" scenario.

And Adrian and Jeffrey Todd were versatile. Usually, the taller, more athletic JT would top, but Adrian would occasionally get to show his more aggressive side and flip him around. There were other times when JT would be in the mood to play the wisecracking power bottom. A few beers helped. Halfway through one session, Korbel shut him up by shoving his sweaty jockstrap from their recent basketball match in his mouth.

I want to hear more about "that look" that Tracey Bregman says Bill Bell secretly saw her give Beth Maitland on the monitor that made him decide to make Lauren a mean girl who would bully Traci.

What did Princess Maitland do to get a look that would prompt something like that?

I remember years ago, Don Diamont gave an interview that implied Maitland was pretty cool to him when he first joined Y&R. Reading between the lines it sounded like she considered him a hair model who was somehow beneath her. I believe he said he eventually decided to ask the not-so-little diva what her issue with him was; at some point, she began to get along with him afterward.

Traci is supposed to be the younger sister, but BM is two years older than ED. It only worked in 80s, because she's short and they'd dress her in juvenile wardrobe, so to the audience that read "younger." Ten years in, her age was showing. Also, sometimes when she'd lose weight, it would actually make her look older.

Why was he a problem on VERONICA MARS?

by Anonymousreply 48706/04/2020

R487 Yes, and he was fired there too. Synopsis:

[quote] I spoke to a couple of people who worked with Michael Muhney during his time in Veronica Mars and also a casting agent who said the word was out a long time ago that Michael Muhney was an amazing actor and a huge pain and no one wanted to work with him because of his reputation for causing trouble on sets and being a diva. When I asked how he was different from other actors who were also great actors but divas and they could find work I was told that Michael crossed lines you didn't want crossed and diva behavior is one thing but he went far beyond that. Apparently on the set of Veronica Mars no one was sad to see him go and it wasn't just because he leaked the season finale of a show online before it aired. No one begged to keep him. Between that and some incidents on other shows no one would really give him a chance. The word was out and Michael was forced off to soaps where he was welcomed for his acting ability. He thought he would be able to make a return to prime time but the casting agent I spoke to said whenever he would read for someone or his name would come up even more stories would pop up about his past and attitude and no one ever wanted to hire him when there were so many other choices who would not try and cause trouble and you never knew what you would get with him. What if they hired him and he ruined everything? Why take the chance? Just don't hire him. When I asked if he was essentially blackballed the casting agent said yes, but not in a literal way just in the sense there were other easier casting choices so why bother.

R512 I think the classic episodes would have done better if instead of theme weeks, they had picked out five episodes from a storyline and aired them over a week.

by Anonymousreply 51306/14/2020

I agree R513; how about the five episodes leading up to the climax of the George Rawlins murder mystery; spoiler alert:

Adrian Hunter (hottie Mark Derwin) has set Cassandra up to die by putting a gun in dry ice and she's drugged and can't walk away; when the ice melts she's set to die...he comes back and screams she's dead; she's dead; BOOM! Cassandra pops up in frame with fake blood; CHILLING.

by Anonymousreply 51406/14/2020

R513 I totally agree. These theme weeks really don't create any kind of serial drama feel, and there's no reason to "tune in tomorrow" to see how things turn out. But airing five pivotal episodes selected from one big storyline could do that.

As R514 points out, it would be very easy to go into the library and find five big episodes in the Cassandra Rawlins story. They could have done that with the David Kimble story as well. Heck, after that one old episode with Vanessa Prentiss plotting her suicide to frame Lorie for murder, I really wanted to see more. And if they want to do something with romance, choose five from the original Nick and Sharon love story; or the Paul and Lauren love story. There are so many to choose from.

R554 Little Lauralee told daddy that she was interested in acting, so she actually started appearing in 'cameos' on Y&R as early as age 13. .. Bell would write scenes for her, so that she could do a few episodes during her Christmas and Spring breaks from school in Chicago. .. I believe her first longer appearance occurred when she was off school during the Summer of 1983, when she would have been 14 going on 15. Jabot photographer, "Joe Blair" (John Denos) was introduced to the canvas, and Daddy Bell connected her to him with the story being that they were cousins. Of course, this tied into her becoming Cricket Blair Teen Model, because Cousin Joe immediately recognized how Beautiful & Talented she was, not to mention Incredible & Amazing.

Both of their names start with “Bry”?

He’s heterosexual??????

He's never pinged to me.

Don Diamont in a speedo today from 1991. 😀

[R583]: Looking forward to it.

Coming up ... Paul & Christine Week.

Some of the side stuff might be interesting, since four of the episode are from the 90s, but these two have never been a couple I really care about.

I always preferred Paul with Lauren (even Maggie for that matter), and Cricket should have been written out with Danny.

Monday observations:

Rather eye-rolling that LLB still hadn't learned to act by 1994 -- TEN years in. .. And Paul and Christine had zippo chemistry.

The men's dress suits back then were soooooo fugly. .. And Cole's après-le-bain gown was très gay. .. Did he steal that from Aunt Jack's closet?

I often sensed a homoerotic tension between Matt and Nicholas. And yes, it was gonna be rough. Matt would stick his dirty jock strap in Rich Boy's mouth to shut him up.

Ashley and Victoria seemed to share lots of men in these classic eps... Other than Cole and Brad, were there anyone else?

R587 Going forward, both Victoria and Ashley would become involved with Neil Winters; although with Victoria, they just dated and became engaged in order to give her baby a father. (How 1950s!) The racists at the time wouldn't stand for Victoria and Neil having sex. And since she lost the baby, their engagement ended.

Also, Victoria and Ashley would both eventually get to sample Ben "Stitch" Rayburn.

R588 Concerning the Victoria and Neil, and also John and Mamie, I don't think the racists were all that powerful. It was just that they were vocal enough that CBS, Bell, and Columbia(at that time), became scared, they seem much more scared to rock the boat than others. Also, some of the loudest voices against Black and White pairings come from Black people themselves.

by Anonymousreply 58906/29/2020

John and Mamie had about as much chemistry as a clock.

R590 I loved them together. I liked them much more than John and Jill, John and Gloria, or John and Dina.

Yeah, those voices were still around when they did the Damon Porter and Syphyllis pairing. (She sure goes for the gay boys ... lol!)

R590 I agree. John and NuMamie did nothing for me. I preferred Original Mamie's unrequited love.

by Anonymousreply 59306/29/2020

I never liked NuMamie. She looked like she could snap the spine of a quarterback, but other than that she lacked warmth. It wasn't a bad idea for a storyline but miscast and forced.

by Anonymousreply 59406/29/2020

I agree that John and original recipe Mamie were good together

But he's married to Lauren, isn't he?

by Anonymousreply 59706/29/2020

I always forgot how young Heather Tom was. Victoria has been getting married since she was 12.

by Anonymousreply 59806/29/2020

Wow! Christian officially came out with that Instagram pic. Good for him.

by Anonymousreply 59906/29/2020

I wonder if he'll start wearing a wedding ring like his husbear-partner does?
