I think due to the pre-emptions last week the shows are not as scheduled. I read on another site that apparently there will be new shows on Thurs and Fri this week instead of Thanksgiving repeats - DG was too busy tipping cows back in Aussie to notice this.

Spoiler

He was on today's CDN.

Kristoff St. John's Ex-Wife Mia to Release Tell-All Book About Her Life with the Late Actor


"The life that Kristoff led, a lot of people don't know what was happening at the end of his life," Mia St. John tells PEOPLE


Mia St. John is ready to share her story.

In an exclusive interview with PEOPLE about her upcoming book Fighting For My Life, the five-time world boxing champion opens up about how her ex-husband Kristoff St. John‘s sudden death and the loss of their son to suicide led to her passion for spreading awareness about mental health.

“I’ve been in this fight for reform of our mental health system for so Iong,” says Mia, 52. “Kristoff and I lost our son in a mental health facility that was found guilty of neglect. Then when I uncovered a lot of the facilities in LA County, I discovered that this was going on everywhere because there have been many deaths. My son wasn’t the only one. So I’ve been on that vision.”

The two-time Emmy Award-winning actor died at age 52 on Feb. 3. It was later determined that his death was caused by heart disease, which was exacerbated by alcohol use.

Kristoff and Mia’s son Julian, 24, died by suicide four years earlier on Nov. 23, 2014 following a lifelong battle with mental illness. He was reportedly found unresponsive in the bathroom of a Long Beach, California, facility.

“When Kristoff lost his life, he was also neglected by the facility that he was put in,” she continued. “He was let go while still being suicidal. Then, my mission just completely skyrocketed. And I just want the public to be aware of what’s happening.

She continues: “A lot of people don’t know what was happening at the end of his life. Not just with the depression and the guilt over his son, but all the circumstances surrounding his life and the last days of his life. So much has been swept under the rug.”

Just two weeks before the Young and the Restless star’s death, he  publicly mourned the loss of his son on Twitter. On Jan. 21, St. John retweeted someone’s post about losing a child that read, “Grieving the loss of a child is a process. It begins on the day your child passes, and ends the day the parent joins them.”

“Never a truer word was spoke,” St. John tweeted. “Thanks for posting this.”

According to Mia, Kristoff was struggling in the days leading up to his death.

“Everybody knew what was going on in his circle, but I feel like there was such a big attempt to cover everything up, which was not to really his benefit and he was so eager to get out of the hospital and get back to work from fear of what would happen if people found out he had been hospitalized,” she said. “He needed to stay in that hospital. And if he had stayed in that hospital as we had intended, and as our attorney had requested, he’d still be alive today.”

And Mia admits that she has been struggling to come to terms with the losses she’s experienced as well.

In March, Mia revealed that she relapsed after three decades of sobriety.

“I lost my 30 years’ sobriety,” she previously revealed to PEOPLE. “I’m ashamed, believe me. I had 30 years of sobriety, I thought I was the s—. Like I was queen of mental health. I’m a mental health advocate. I felt as small as you can get. My ego was crushed. But I feel like I want to look at the bigger picture and my higher self. It’s about the good of all. And if I can help someone out, and say if there’s just nothing it doesn’t mean that I’m a weak person. I’m just an imperfect person and we all have to find a way to pick ourselves up and carry on.”

Following Kristoff’s death, Mia was hospitalized twice.

“I’m out of the hospital. I’m sorry if I scared anyone,” she shared on social media. “Let’s plz focus on the wellness of his precious girls Lols & Paris.”

“They love their father so much, the beautiful, loving, funny soul that he was/is,” she continued, adding a green heart emoji. “#MentalHealth is all we have, nothing else is important.”

While Mia says she’s overcome with grief, she’s doing her best to move forward.

“We’re just really struggling,” she tells PEOPLE. “I’ve just been telling my daughter, that we have to go on, he’d want us to be happy and to celebrate together. And that’s what we have to do, even though he was always with us, even though we were divorced, we spent holidays together. It’ll be a burst. It’ll be difficult.”

Fighting For My Life will be released in 2020.

What on earth?  He looks horrible; under-nourished and pasty is not a good look.  Especially if you are looking for an acting job.  Maybe it is just after-workout tiredness, but he looks like he hasn't slept in months.  I'm sure it is just the camera angle, but it looks like there is a whole lot of forehead.  I feel badly for anyone who has lost their job (even him) but maybe over-sharing unflattering selfies is not the best way to gain employment.

Yikes, I think either DG has mental issues or those photos he posts from that weird perspective are directed at someone in particular who is expected to see them either as alluring or as a threat. KMN.

Wow, did NuChance go overboard with the attempted damage control or what? I had already checked out his IMDb page and knew he had a pretty long resume (of mostly bit parts) but this article makes him sound like he's the Next Big Thing in Hollywood and he's wading through the offers. Right. Nice job with the humble bragging, fella.

Is CJB still sporting wigs? It kind of looks like one there that's placed on his head so his grey sideburns will show to make things seem more real. Is it just my eyes seeing that?

Aw, they were in the Distillery District! I live quite close to Toronto, but hardly ever go there to do anything fun because driving/parking is a $$$ hassle, and public transit options are not great from where I live.

Speaking of hair, why does Grossman have cockatoo hair?!?

I mentioned the other day that his hair looked really stupid especially from the side. So between his hair and Sharon’s hair constantly hanging in her face, I’m not sure I can watch either one of them any more. Why doesn’t someone tell Sharon that her hair “style” got old and tired about 10 years ago?

I think it was old and tired when she started wearing it stringy like that.  I had that look in grade nine.

Sharon Case is really stunning in these off set photos.  She is a beautiful woman.  I actually don't mind MG's do.

It's a great area in TO.  I have a friend who lives there.

I liked CLB serenading SC/MG, in French, no less!  That looked like a fun event.

Of course, Michelle Stafford would enjoy the Poop Emoji hat!

Yes but if you said anything to her she’d say it’s because she’s “the shit.”

Off-topic, I'll be glad when the poop emoji, & all of the poop-inspired gifts goes away. I'm not prude, hence the fact that I'm posting on a soap opera board, but I am over all of the poop-related pillows, emojis shirts, all of it. Give me some cheating spouses, or someone who wakes up to find "KILLER" scratched on his forehead, & I'm in (I think it was "killer", maybe it was "murderer" back in the day, when soaps were good).

On topic, the Staff just looks exhausting to be around, but PB can't help but look dapper. He's probably dapper shoveling snow. He can come to my house right now & we can test my theory.

David Kimball was one of my favorite villains on this show!  It was "KILLER" etched in his forehead, by the plastic surgeon who was supposed to make him look like David Hasselhoff.  And then he posed as a phone sex worker named Rod so he could get to Nina's mother.  Those were the days!

While channel surfing I ran across a promo for this new Christmas movie that will be running on ION:

MV5BNDdmMDY5MDAtNzllNC00ZWI4LTk0NDctNGM3

It co-stars the guy now playing NuChance. He appears to be doing the same good ol' boy thing he's been doing on YR. The IMDb user reviews are hilariously brutal.

"On top of that, the story is so badly written and constructed that I feel it was written by a three-year-old and transcribed onto paper by a hundred chimpanzees... should have paid for a million chimps."

Ok, which one of you Preverts wrote this?

I wish I could take credit but I closed my IMDb account as soon as Amazon bought them. They're up in enough of my business as it is. 😉

BLECH!

Can you imagine waking up on Christmas morning to find that someone you cared about - and you thought that that someone cared about you, too - spent actual money to have Daniel Goddard give you a shout out or make a video with a personal message for you?  That's called a GIFT OF SPITE!

He's a hot mess.  Eeeewwww....that hair!

They had me at “12 Puppies of Christmas” but lost me when I saw it stars NuChance.
