If it's for the reason I think it is, that's EXACTLY why I find it so hard to crush on Chad Duell these days (yes, I may or may not have had a crush on CD at one point, SHUT UP! 😛 ). Sigh. 😞 

I personally would have been fine imagining myself as Lulu and having Johnny and Dante to cite as romantic interests back in the day. 😄 

I had such a crush on WR in 2000-2001 when he played Sam on GL (for that reason alone, I just CAN'T bring myself to call him by his usual nickname here--I just can't do it), but that's dead now. Oh well. 

I give Wes a lot of shit but he actually has really nice skin.  I notice it sometimes in scenes. lol

You seem to have a problem with my opinion.  Yes an opinion.

And no if I were hating on Kelly Monaco I'd call her horrible names.  Saying she's a bad actress is far from "hate." She's open to criticism for her profession if it's on national tv.  I've said way worse about actors on here. This is tame.

But again thanks for your 2 cents.  It won't change that I believe KM is lazy, sleep walks through every scene and yes will not have another acting job after this show is canned (not like this is news for soap actors anyway & is said all the time, but let's act like this is an exception and it won't be hard for these people to get jobs).

You have a really narrow view of what hate means. And I am well aware you've said worse about actors on here. 

Not sure why you stated twice that it was an opinion. Yes, I am aware of that which is why I said it was an opinion. I just disagreed that you can't have an opinion and it still be hate. I think Steve Burton is a terrible actor. That's an opinion and it's also me hating on his acting ability.

YW for my 2 cents. And, yes, your opinion is one I don't agree with. Never said you couldn't hate to your heart's content so I don't know where you're getting that idea from. Some of these people won't work again, some will. Hollywood has never been only about having talent.

Ok you think I hate her. Fine. You win. I’ll continue to keep my comments to the show and the people who act on it. I’m done with this stupid conversation.

I think Y&R and B&B would absolutely go after KM if she quit. That's what the soaps do now, trade baseball cards.

I think B&B and DAYS, yes. Y&R? imo no way. And right now Y&R is just making sure to get their own lapsed actors back.

Y&R has done that many times and has still hired many, many other soaps' unneeded stars in the last decade, lol. They won't stop now.

DAYS could never pay her.

Whatever, someone, anyone, pls hire KeMo. 

That will never happen. She cannot act, speak, emote or generate any kind of interest from the viewers. She needs to go away.

She's an experienced soap actress with a relatively large and vocal fanbase. FV has repeatedly made hires with less to offer - she'd land somewhere

Other soaps would likely court Kelly Monaco if/when she ever left this show. But the big test for her as an actor - and any actors left on the last four holdouts - will come when the last four soaps die. Some have dabbled in prime time. And the lines of TV/movie actors have now blurred what with so many options, so it may be easier to find something.

Or harder, since there are now so many former movie actors now doing TV that roles that used to go to moonlighting daytime actors have now shifted elsewhere.

I would say maybe soaps will go the streaming route, but an experiment with the haphazard Prospect Park showed that didn't work out too well. Or maybe it was because PP was so badly disorganized. Even so, seeing the prior failure, it makes me wonder if the streaming platforms would be hesitant to try it again. Yes, there are current web soaps, but how many really know they exist?

I personally don’t think soaps can continue in this 1-hr/5 days a week format. If they do a Netflix/YouTube/Hulu route, they should prioritize quality over quantity and maybe people will care again.

Oh, I agree there. Maybe twice or three days a week? Eliminate the shitty filler and get back to real storytelling about love and family, not mobsters, aliens, or rubber masks.

Or maybe go back to a half hour with less filler? (Like how many long shots we got today of people walking out of rooms)

This was the main reason. That, and I think they were just a few years too early. Streaming hadn't yet caught on in a really BIG way in 2013, the way it has since. 

Obviously, things would probably have to be different in terms of how it was presented compared to now (5 days a week vs. a season to binge watch--well, something along those lines to binge), but I absolutely think it could be done, and in a MUCH friendlier environment now than they had back then.

Wait, there's been an alien since Casey? I've missed a LOT! 😄

The PP soaps were the future, AFAIC. That was the model and platform, if not the schedule. The higher management was what failed them from above.

I think Y&R, in particular, would be a strong candidate since they have utilized so many GH actors over the years and vice versa.

Nina is pointless, no matter who plays her. I think it is a waste of Cynthia Watros' ability. Nina should have been offed by Ryan. To paraphrase Phoebe Buffay from Friends, Nina "lifts right out".

I totally agree. I've never cared for the Nina character. The only good thing about her is her wardrobe.

Neil is obviously Willow's father. I just wonder why he faked his death. Now he know he got remarried and had another child and lost that child.

He and Willow met. So if he faked his death, he had to go through some massive plastic surgery that she wouldn't recognize him.

Someone earlier (sorry, I don't remember who it was) posited that Neil left the family when Willow was young, and she grew up thinking her stepfather was her bio dad. So she doesn't know who Neil is.

I thought that last week and I think I posted about, but did Neil bury an empty casket? The death of his daughter occurred in 2014. How long has it been since Willow's father died? Did she say it was 8 years? 

It just seems like a tragic story at this point where his daughter got involved in a cult, then maybe killed herself because her exit therapy didn't work. It would be great if Willow was his kid because both characters really deserve better because they're nice people and damn it, good people are worth rooting for!

It's either that (and Harmony didn't want her to know she had another father), or the show is going to do a "Willow was switched at birth" story for irony - that the daughter who died was the switched baby while Willow is his true biological daughter.

The only way I see Neil being willows father is if he left when she was a baby. If she were 3 or older she would at least have vague memories of another father being in her life.

I see the actress, Hendrickson? who played Margaux the D.A. has a new job - was in a store check-out line today and saw her on the cover of the CBS Soaps magazine with a guy, but I don't know if it she was the promo for B&B or Y&R.
