  1. I think this is a case where all of these things came together and created a horror show.
  2. I didn't see those. And yes, "phenomenal" was probably overstating things a bit. My crush on him as a 12 year old girl in 2001 probably clouded my judgment a bit back then, but I always liked him on GL. But true, "phenomenal" is probably the wrong word here.
  3. I mean, it's her dad, I expect her to say that. I'll cut her some slack here. I mean, I always thought he was good actor on GL. *shrug*
  4. He actually began in 1996, and was gone for about a year in 1997 when he went to create Sunset Beach; there were two other teams of head writers before he returned by early 1998 or so. Liz was actually created by the second team.
  5. Genie once said that the only reason the rape scene wasn't more graphic was because she was still underage. God knows how much more graphic it would have been had she been 18 or older. Regarding Karen and her abuse at the hands of Ray Conway, what makes that story even worse is that around the same time, Brenda secretly took photos of Karen while she was showering after gym class, and then (also secretly) distributed those photos around PC High to their other classmates. With how much more seriously bullying in school is treated today, there is NO WAY IN HELL anyone who did that now would be treated as anything but a villain. Given Vanessa Marcil's natural charisma, I can see how she survived it, but even that probably wouldn't save an actor doing a story like that now. It would just be WAY too skeevy. And the crazy thing is, it was swept under the rug so fast that most people either forgot it happened or never knew it happened in the first place! And as far as I know, no one else--not Robin (who may have liked Jason Q., but she was friends with Karen too, and would have likely been horrified to find out what Brenda did to her!), not Jason, not Jagger, not even Karen herself ever found out she was the one behind it(and of course now she's dead). It looks like this is with Brenda and Brenda alone. And as far as soap secrets going to one's grave, this is a pretty big one, and at this point, it's probably because so few people know about it. But if anyone ever found out about it, imagine what people think of Brenda afterwards. I mean, DAMN. What a dark secret to have.
  6. Welp. I don't think I mentioned this when his return was first announced, but all I can say now is: BOY was I wrong! Lots of crow for me to eat. -_- Topic? Team Scott & Lucy, forever and always.
  7. Andrea Tantaros. She followed Gretchen Carlson's lead soon after by suing the network for sexual harassment.
  8. Well, one of the few brunettes they had just got fired because she couldn't stop sharing her dick pics at work (one must have a dick in order to share pictures of one at Fox News, I suppose). Meanwhile, another one (Jon Huntsman's daughter, Abby) is about to join The View. As a natural blonde who is both a Trump hater and a liberal Democrat, I hate how Fox News has ruined the image of blonde women in terms of politics. Some of us are smart and non-robotic looking, and we need love and appreciation too. I don't want to have to dye my hair dark for guys/people who I share similar political views with to like me. :( ...But, anyway. Yeah. -_- There were a few piercingly loud laughs that annoyed the hell out of me.
  9. Oh look, it's the dollar store version of the wire scene, this time with Hannah. For someone who so often dismissed Labine's writing, Guza certainly loved to copy her a lot.
  10. Country Music, Y'all!

    She may be the wife of Tim McGraw, but this woman--who hails from the appropriately named Star, Mississippi--was, without question, THE bigger star of the family in the late 90's and early 2000's. #28: Faith Hill. http://www.countryuniverse.net/2018/08/09/100-greatest-women-28-faith-hill/ One of the biggest pop-country stars of all time, she is definitely NOT just Loretta Lynn's "little sister". #27: Crystal Gayle. http://www.countryuniverse.net/2018/08/09/100-greatest-women-27-crystal-gayle/
  11. Just as a guide for some of the less familiar names (the ones I recognize, at least): Ben Jones--Cooter from The Dukes of Hazzard Sheila Kehul--Zelda Gilroy from The Many Loves of Dobie Gillis Alan Autry--Bubba from In the Heat of the Night Fred Grandy--Gopher from The Love Boat (and in his case, he actually was more heavily involved in politics originally than acting--he was a speechwriter for his hometown Congressman in Iowa way before The Love Boat) Park Overall--Laverne from Empty Nest Ralph Waite--John Walton Sr. from The Waltons (he ran for Congress in CA against Mary Bono in 1998, right after Sonny's death, and lost) Nancy Kulp--Miss Hathaway from The Beverly Hillbillies (her old co-star Buddy Ebsen--a lifelong Republican--actually did a radio ad for her opponent in Pennsylvania, which he apparently regretted later on) Wendell Corey was a film actor, mainly during the 40's and 50's. One of his more memorable roles was as the detective who assisted James Stewart and Grace Kelly in Rear Window. Anyway, I hope that helps. :)
  12. Kathleen Turner had some things to say: http://www.vulture.com/2018/08/kathleen-turner-in-conversation.html

  14. Actually, she pursued her acting career more or less in SPITE of her parents. When the New Mickey Mouse Club began holding auditions, she sent them a letter from her native Texas stating her interest. Unfortunately, they responded by telling her that the auditions were over. Her response? She and her dad were willing to drive out to Hollywood if they would let her audition! Remember, she was only 13 at the time! What drive she must have had then. As a result, she was the last Mouseketeer (or Disco Mouse, in her case) cast. I know she moved out to LA with her grandmother, while her parents and brother stayed behind in Texas, even once FOL started. There was a whole article in TV Guide in 1982 where she talked about the loneliness she sometimes felt for her friends and family back in Texas.
  15. She turned 32 on July 2nd. She looks good...for a 75 year old with a three pack a day smoking habit fighting off the sun after her third face lift. Sigh.
