Picture it. Cyberspace, 2008. A humble soap blogger and podcaster with big dreams coins a term to describe the transformation of a once lackluster soap heroine into a surprisingly bitchy and suddenly relevant character, complete with a fetch new do, never expecting it to go any further than his little soap site-that-could, then it happened.
On today’s episode of One Life to Live, Adriana Cramer (Melissa Fumero) referred to herself as "Bitchy Bangs"! Luke and I recently interviewed pioneering soap journalist Mimi Torchin (check back for that interview soon) and asked how it felt to have a term she coined-SORAS (Soap Opera Rapid Aging Syndrome)-become part of industry vernacular, well now it looks like our boy Luke will know first hand!
Luke came up with the term "Bitchy Bangs" during episode #230 ABC Bitchy Bangs of the Daytime Confidential ABC podcast, while discussing Adriana’s new personality and cut with Belinda and Tina. We got the tip from eagle-eared viewer Terry and trust me, Luke is so ecstatic he’s choosing his dancing partner for the "Virgina Reel" as we speak. Okay, so he’s not doing that…but he is feeling mighty swell! A MAJOR shout out to OLTL’s brilliant and much-missed-during-the-Strike scribe Ron Carlivati for throwing a wink at DC’s frontman.
