Kin Shriner announces he was ‘written out’ of General Hospital
May 17th, 2023 under TV Soaps. [ Comments: none ]

Kin Shriner has been playing Scotty Baldwin on General Hospital on and off since 1977. However, it looks like his time has come to an end.

The actor wrote, “I just found out Scotty @GeneralHospital was written out. I thank u
@GeneralHospital fans for decades of supporting me!!”

Since this was tweeted late last night, we don’t know when and how he will be written off. I think it is a shame when someone who has dedicated that much of their life to a Soap Opera is just let go unceremoniously like that. But not everyone can get the Anthony Geary exit. Oh, wait, his departure was atrocious too.


Shemar Moore visits The Young & the Restless on Monday

It has been about four years since Shemar Moore has been back in Genoa City. And on Monday, he will be there to connect with his daughter Lily (Christel Khalil), nephew Devon (Bryton James), and stepson Nate (Sean Dominic).

Moore has been playing Malcolm Winters on and off since 1994. And he is one of the show’s most beloved characters.

So it makes sense that he would be invited back to celebrate the Soap Opera’s 50th anniversary.

He is not the only one who has returned to The Young & the Restless for the milestone; so has Michael Damian, Patty Weaver, Barbara Crampton, Tricia Cast, and Veronica Webb. It will be interesting to see who else will come back home. Maybe Doug Davidson, Peter Barton, or Grant Cramer?


Days of our Lives’ Victoria Grace rescinds her Daytime Emmy nom
April 29th, 2023 under Emmys, TV Soaps. [ Comments: none ]

On Wednesday, the Daytime Emmys announced their nominees, and there is already a lot of controversy going on for the Outstanding Younger Performer category.

It sounds shocking, but it is true.

You see, in the last few years, they changed the age eligibility from 25 to 21 to 18, which it is now. However, the people submitting didn’t know that.

Therefore, 21-year-old Victoria Grace made an announcement yesterday. “I was honored to be nominated for a Daytime Emmy and to be recognized by the Academy. Unfortunately, there was a huge misunderstanding across the board regarding the rules for this year’s category. This is obviously a surprise and I am heartbroken, but in fairness to all, I’ll be rescinding my nomination,” the Days of our Lives actress wrote. “I wish the best of luck to all the nominees. I will continue to work hard to earn another Daytime Emmy nomination next year!”

While she has opted to rescind her nomination, 19-year-old Eden McCoy doesn’t sound like she is going to do that. “Oh am I supposed to be embarrassed by my nomination now? Shame on anyone tweeting that,” the General Hospital star wrote in response to a now private Tweet. “Regardless of the changing rules in the Younger Performer category, I stand by the quality of my work in ANY of my years at GH (going on 8 btw). My two prior nominations were in years where the category was 25 and under. Multiple talented actors my age who did amazing work submitted this year, and these ‘kids’ whose work you are t were nohminated ahead of them. I’m proud of Henry and Cary. Your lack of respect is what’s embarrassing. The facts are that everybody earned what they got. Do better.”

Personally, I think the Academy fucked up. They should have checked the ages of the actors they were nominating before they nominated them. Then, none of this would be happening. Since they fucked up, they should keep the category’s nominees, including Days of out Lives’ Cary Christopher and The Bold and the Beautiful’s Henry Joseph Samiri, as it was on Wednesday. And next year, do better.

Deidre Hall has been on Days of our Lives for so long. How long? Her 5,000th episode will stream on Peacock on May 12th.

Since Hall made her debut on June 21st, 1976, Marlena Evans has been possessed, kidnapped, presumed dead, survived a plane crash, became a mother, a grandmother, a great-grandmother, slapped several people, and kissed many men along with marrying some of them.

And that was just the first 5,000 episodes. I can’t wait to see what they do to her next.

Back to the 12th, according to Soap Opera News, Hall’s castmates will pay tribute to her on the Days of our Lives social media.


Dick Van Dyke is doing his first soap opera!
April 21st, 2023 under Dick Van Dyke, TV Soaps. [ Comments: none ]

Dick Van Dyke is 97, so you would think he has done it all. He hasn’t.

This year has been full of firsts for the beloved actor. First, he appeared on The Masked Singer, which was his singing competition debut. And in the Fall, he was will make his soap opera debut on Days of our Lives on Peacock.

He will play a mysterious older gentleman with amnesia who is helped by John Black (Drake Hogestyn) and Marlena Evans (Diedre Hall).

And Van Dyke has Hogestyn to thank for the role. “Drake and I went to the same gym together. I used to kid him, ‘Don’t you have any parts for old people? C’mon get me a part,'” Van Dyke told Access Hollywood. “He took me seriously and got me a part.”

Even though he has been playing older men since his youth, this is the first time playing one that is not comedic.

I can’t wait to see Van Dyke on DOOL! Who knows, maybe he will stick around like Jackée Harry has.
