WHET Beth Raines?

The other thread was Murieled. Let's continue our discussions and remembrances of the wonderful towns of Springfield and Oakdale.

Judi Evans is interviewed on the latest Soap Opera Digest podcast and she speaks warmly about her time on GL.

She is a 4 time divorcee and is now shacked up with Bradly Raines who fucks her regularly while her mother watches.

Thanksgiving is in a week. Is the clip still online of the very tense, intense Thanksgiving scene where abusive Bradley (played by James Rebhorn) menaces his family except Beth was having none of it. That mashed potato scene was never going to end well but it was such a great scene. Somebody should post it next week in honor of Saint Beth of Raines.

Watching the Locher Room Beverlee McKinsey tribute. He's been doing these for seven months now. He still hasn't learned to direct his question to a specific individual so they all don't talk over each other. "Do you all remember the first time you worked with Beverlee?"

R34 Beth & Mindy friendship sort of broke up when Mindy was pregnant with Phillip child

By the time Phillip and Mindy divorced, Beth had moved on with Lujack and Beth & Mindy were in different storyline and barely interacted

But when Pam Long came back she resurrected the "four musketeers" and Mindy & Beth were played by different actresses

When they broke up Beth and Phillip to pair her with Lujack, they essentially broke up the Four Musketeers.

Beth had little interaction with Mindy or Rick for the last two years of Judi's run.

It's obviously not uncommon for actors to fall in love with costars, but it was rather strange that Vincent did it with almost every female costar he ever had. I believe Judi was the only one he DIDN'T have a thing for or with! I mean, if I am not mistaken he had a thing with all three of the Mindys he played against. WIth Signy Coleman on Santa Barbara, too.

According to SOD, 11/28/1983 was the first airdate for both Zimmer and Vincent Irizarry. I thought he came on much later but I guess not!

by Anonymousreply 5111/21/2020

Sometime in the mid 90s, Vince has said he was going through a dark period of his life and that's when he found Jesus and started attending a Bible study.

I suspect that was in 1995 when his relationship with Barbara Crampton (Mindy #4) was falling apart yet he still had to work with her. GL was in bad shape during that time too both on screen and off screen.

His performances really seemed to suffer during this period. He just seemed to have lost his spark, his mojo. I was not really surprised the show wrote off Nick in Feb. 1996.

When he showed up on AMC in 1997, he had a different energy, seemed like a different person. I assume he had found Jesus by that point.

It was around that time (in 1995) they fired Jill Farren Phelps and switched headwriters (bringing in Megan McTavish) and suddenly Vince was on the backburner, and became a supporting player in the Brent/Marian storyline (as his fiancee Nancy Bell was suspicious of Marian)

He was just unsatisfied how his character was being written and it was a mutual decision between him and the new producer to let the character rest,

by Anonymousreply 5811/23/2020

r54, I don't even recognize the woman in the scene. Who is she?

The Chelsea Reardon character was very forgettable. Apparently so were the people in her orbit.

by Anonymousreply 5911/23/2020

R59 That was Rae Rooney.

This was the C or D story on GL circa 1988-1989. There were a few female character, Rae Rooney and Dana, involved with Chelsea, Frank and Johnny.

Dana may have been the first attempt to bring back Beth, but they changed the story to have Dana imitating Beth with Alan's backing, trying to scam Phillip. She was eventually forgiven and ended up dating Frank.

Rae Rooney worked with Chelsea at the TV station, I think? Or Dana did? I think Rae was a comedian. Long story short, Chelsea had a stalker, everyone thought it was Dana but then Dana herself was killed, and it was revealed to be Rae, who was, like, super jealous of Chelsea.

Then the audience died, of boredom.

Most of Pam's stuff worked but this mess didn't, and neither did Rusty's wife Rose, who was as exciting as a wet paper towel.

by Anonymousreply 6011/23/2020

Thanks r60. The Rae character sounds vaguely familiar. Vaguely.

The only reason I even remember Rusty's wife Rose (yawn) was because she was played by Alexandra Neil, who had done such a fabulous job playing Ruby Wright on Texas.

Its just reminder that Pam could write some clunkers too. And also create some dull characters.

by Anonymousreply 6111/23/2020

At the start of her career, Barbara Garrick played one of Pam's forgettable characters in a C storyline. I think the character was named Charlotte.

Barabara Garrick is a character actress perhaps best known for playing DeDe Halcyon in the Tales of the City mini-series. Soap fans may also recall her very memorable turn as Allison Perkins on OLTL, She was one of cult leader Mitch Laurence's followers. "Ask Mitch, Ask Mitch, Ask Mitch"

by Anonymousreply 6211/23/2020

R62 Yes! I loved Garrick in Tales as Dee Dee. But she played essentially the same character on GL and OLTL - twisted villain.

Charlotte Wheaton was a nurse who...somehow wanted revenge on Ed, for reasons I don't remember.

This was when Original Recipe Maureen was opposite Brand New Sexy Ed. (Who was about as well loved as Brand New Sexy Donna.)

by Anonymousreply 6311/23/2020

R62 Oh....and I don't think this was Pam? I think that the point between Pam's two stints. This was when GL was really terrible. The Infinity storyline, Sampson Girl, et al.

by Anonymousreply 6411/23/2020

Oh, well that further explains why I don't remember the Charlotte character. I've blocked out most of Richard Van Vlett's run as Ed.

And yes, you're right. r63, Brand New Sexy Ed went over about as well as Brand New Sexy Donna.

I was frustrated that when Alexandra was trying to explain to Nick who Lujack was. Alexandra could have pulled the Out in the Streets video out and SHOWN Nick who Lujack was.

Instead, Alex never even mentioned the video. Guess the show didn't want to pay for the music rights to song again.

by Anonymousreply 6711/23/2020

R64 Infiinty and Sampson Girl was under Pam's tenure. Both were summer of 1985.

Pam went on maternity leave in Jan 1986, but her longterm story continued playing out. When she got off maternity leave, P&G asked her to HW Search for Tomorrow, in a last ditch effort to save that show.

She returned to HW GL in late summer 1987. She's the one who introduced Harley Davidson Cooper.

Pam’s last clunker her first go around at GL was introducing Cain, as played by Jerry Lanning. Weird story.

by Anonymousreply 7011/23/2020

I always think those two weren't Pam, R68. It certainly didn't ring true to her style. Must have been network interference.

by Anonymousreply 7111/23/2020

We've discussed this several times before. Jeff Ryder became Pam's co-headwriter in early 1985. And when she left on maternity leave in late Dec 1985/early Jan 1986, Ryder took over as the only HW. But he only lasted 6 months as the sole HW. He was replaced by Mary Ryan Munisteri & Ellen Barrett who did an even worse job than he did.

I suspect the dud storylines in 1985 that have Pam's name attached to them were actually Ryders. I'm talking about the very-Un-Pam-like storylines like Infinity, like the Sampson Girl and like the Jackson Freemont record producer storyline. Either that or it was network interference insisting the show try to imitate GH and its outlandish storylines more.

This was discussed on another thread but Susie Pratt really talked trash about Richard Van Vleet and what a diva he was at GL. Jay Hammer confirmed.

I hated this period of GL. When they were trying to be General Hospital. But I guess who wasn't right? It was a hot mess.

Van Vleet was sort of cute and he might have worked if he was a recast of a character more like Ross, but he sucked raw sewage as Ed.
