AMC's Zach Slater is PIG VOMIT! Bring on Rendall!





Regan asked you guys earlier if you were ready for a Rendall Redux and from the looks of things, DC readers aren't trying to feel a reunion between Ryan and Kendall on All My Children, but I sure am! Those promos are taking me right back to the magic that was Rendall! Alicia Minshew and Cameron Mathison have always sparkled together onscreen, and they still do.
 
It was an abyssmal mistake to ever inject Green-Me (Rebecca Budig) into Ryan and Kendall's orbit. As for Zach (Thorsten Kaye), my ability to tolerate The Cambias That Ate Pine Valley died with Myrtle Fairgate (the late Eileen Herlie).

Zach is a Grade-A jackass, who thinks he should never pay for anything he does! He shot Kendall's poor, unaborted brother through the head and showed about as much remorse as a celebutante after her sex tape is "leaked".

If killing Whatshisface wasn't enough, Zach went on to kiss the fiance of Kendall's beloved baby sister Bianca (Eden Riegel), after having lied to Kendall for months about donating his monkey love to Binks and her Sometimes-Sapphic Significant Other Reese (Tamara Braun)! No child of Erica Kane (Susan Lucci) would put up with Zach's foolishness one second longer! I say let Reese and Zach have each other. They're two peas in a Pine Valley— a pair of shameless, confused hot messes. Bianca and Kendall both deserve better! Bring on Rendall!

I think Kendall can do better than both of those cavemen. Reese should fall into a very deep hole, and Kendall should lock Ryan and Zach in a room so that they can beat one another to death. The daughters of Erica Kane deserve a lot better, and shouldn't give those three the time of day.

Jamey - grow up. Pig vomit? come on. You know that the majority of fans cant stand Ryan. It would be a joke to see man boobs with skeletor. Unless of course AMC wants to become daytimes first sitcom.

Jamey, I think I speak for many when I say Kendall would be much better off with that 3rd option you kindly linked us to.

As opposed to what? Daytime's first Gong Show? Ryan and Kendall were wildly popular the first time around. As for my growing up, let he who's name isn't that of an action figure cast the first stone! LMAO

I am so with you Jamey! I actually could care less about Rendall, but I just want Zach to lose something for once! But please keep Reese out of Zach's orbit! It bothers me that Reese lost everyhting, while Zach still has everything. And yes Jamey I still like Reese, she's just misunderstood! Wink I was so happy when Bianca lashed out at him, but the very next day she was telling him to work on his marriage as she was running out on hers? Why did the writers even bother having her yell at him and why do they always make him such a big hero? Seriously, he was manhandling a woman a third of his size today! Unfortunately for Reese, it will take losing her sight to realize what an ass he is! Along with all the other outrageous things he's done (and gotten away with), he's now going to be responsible for making a woman go blind and he'll never apologize or have to pay!

Ryan hates Kendall..He uses her every chance he gets. He treated her like Pig's Vomit when all she wanted to do was love him. Ryan played her and used Greenlee to do it. Ryan loves himself and always will..
Zach is the only one to give what she wants and doesn't judge her...Kendall is better off with her husband..

Yeah no.
I am sorry, but though Zach sucks right about now SO DOES RYAN! But much more so b/c Ryan has been sucking for YEARS and Zach is new to this game (b/c they have changed his character where Kendall & his undying/unfaltering love for her is concerned).
Not only has RYAN left Kendall time & time again, but he also has a problem with trusting her, and he talks down to her & invalidates her even when he knows that she is capable of so much love & is fiercely loyal. I mean HELLO she had the whole town hating her and risked her LIFE to protect Binks when she lead everyone to believe that she had married Michael and was preggerz with his baby! All the years it took for her to be close to Erica and she was willing to let that go for Binks! (<---talk about someone who is PIG VOMIT! I HATE Binks! It started when she told Kendall that she would disown her if she told JR that Babe was going to run off with Bess/Miranda. I was like "bitch please! You are willing to never talk to the person who almost went on deathrow for you over this slut?" ...And it ended with this thinking it was a good idea to use her sister's husband as her baby daddy! Bitch is dead to me)... and Ryan STILL doubted her and didn't believe in her (1st he didn't, then he did, and when Greenlee butted in he didn't again. I mean Greenlee ruins EVERYTHING by ripping off Kendall's dress in open court b/c she wanted to prove that she was right, and SHE gets a pass and all is forgiven? Bitch is dead to me-- heh, & to you too; yay!). So yeah, I still remember that after the trial Greens went missing and once again Ryan thought that she did something to Greenlee (when she was first trapped in a stupid hole in the ground). Kendall said she had nothing to do with it, and he didn't believe her. Also remember when Ryan's brother went frackin' insane and tried to kill Greens multiple times and Kendall was the one who saved The Green Butterfly (vomit) and Ryan thought that it was Kendall that was trying to kill Greens and wanted her to PAY! Again, he didn't believe her, and couldn't believe that Kendall just wouldn't do something like that.
So yeah, Ryan always doubts her, never believes in her, and always wants her to change. Zach was the first man who ever loved Kendall for herself, just the way she was, and would never cheat on her or hurt her the way that Ryan did when he married Greenlee the first time right in front of her. <--That is of course until this CRAPTASTIC writing of the character of Zach occurred and they completely destroyed him.
Ryan *always* tried to change her, and as she even said, Zach was the first man that ever really listened to her and what SHE wanted (which is why when everybody wanted to take Spike before he was ready, Zach locked himself in her hospital room with a gun b/c he knew that Kendall wanted/loved that baby... he respected/loved her enough that he was willing to do what she wanted which was to save the baby, even if it cost him Kendall. Ryan would NEVER be so selfless. And he wasn't, b/c he told the docs to take the kid).

Finally, Ryan once told Kendall, and I will NEVER forget this, that she had no soul.
Who the freak says that?!!? (I mean, Jamey that is on par with what you were saying on the podcast about Jackie M. telling Katie off on B&B by talking about her dead brother's heart, etc, etc... I mean, THAT is some hateful shYt!). Ever since that day, I have NEVER wanted them to get back together. Ryan is the BIGGEST ass/hypocrite in Pine Valley and THAT is saying something b/c this town is currently full of Martins.
Bitch (he) is dead to me.

that she had no soul.

Sigh, that was because he saw her trying to do the Electric Slide! Don't worry, Ne-Yo showed her how at Angie and Jesse's wedding and now Kendall has plenty of soul! In fact, she has more soul than Lily Winters on The Young and the Restless!

All the Cambias family members sucked donkey dong! That nasty piece of work who raped dear Bianca, the crazy daddy, lame Ethan, his stupid mom with the scary eyes, they all SUCKED! Where is BROOKE ENGLISH?! Zach is the last one and it's high time he ended up in a landfill like his brother!

Ryan has treated Kendall like shit, but Zach's nobetter. He's as much of an asshole as Ryan is. This fool mlied to his wife for MONTHS, then wants her to forgive him overnight. Yet, when she boinked Aidan, he shut down and damn near had her groveling at his feet.

If it's written right, I could get behind Rendall 3.0... Smile

Yeah, back when Zach did that holier than thou 'I always saw the best of Erica in you but now I see the worst. It makes me sad. No, it makes me sick." I wanted Bianca not to come back with that lameass "Go to hell." I wanted her to say, "Yeah, well, what I see in you are your brother and father. I'll take my mother over that any day."

And how sad is it that the last thing Reese sees before this monkey throws her into glass, is a nasty, bearded, physically abusive, Zach?

I thought that my substantial list would help you see the light, but I guess you missed my point.
I KNOW that Zach has done some dirty, and only LATELY has that dirty been done to Kendall (becoming Bink's Baby daddy on the down-low & kissing Reese-- I don't really care about the Josh part-- his whole being outside of the wonderful scenes he shared with everyone when both of Kendall's boys were in the hospital last year where he rocked!, was a plot point... & I don't care about no walking, talking plot point). But Ryan has done Kendall- who he has known, AND claimed to love, FOR YEARS-- soo terrible over many, many, many times. I mean, this guy has done Kendall wrong countless times, on many occasions, spanning numerous years. He is the ultimate in treating Kendall like shyt, even though she has been a good friend to him (though he didn't deserve it), and even though she is the mother of his child.
Now I am not excusing what Zach has done... I am just saying that Ryan is definitely no better... and has demonstrated so over & over again.

Jamey, you didn't comment on my Binks rant... I would like to know how you feel about her (all love for Eden R. aside-- cuz she definitely rocks!).

NOOOOO!!!! Neither Zach or Ryan deserve Kendall! But is especially un-worthy, he's so much worse than Zach, the things Ryan has whisper-scream to Kendall... souless cancer, that nobody could love somebody like her... Horrible.

Kedanll needs a new man, she's Erica Kane's daughter she should not settle for anything less than the best, and Ryan? Not. The. Best. Zach? Not since before CoolReese.

Thank you, Miry, for summing up why Ryan and Kendall is DOA.

I may not like Zach right now but I never, ever want Kendall to be Ryan. Even if Zach was written off next week, I would never ever want Kendall to be with Ryan. He was so hateful to Kendall for so long that he almost destroyed her. Remember the suicide attempt before Ethan saved her a few years ago because of how Ryan (and Greenlee) were treating her? Ryan is poisonous to Kendall's mental health in regard to how badly he makes her hate herself and feel unworthy.

And it's all made even worse in how Erica never tells Ryan to shove it when he speaks degradingly about and to Kendall in front of her. Erica has always let Ryan treat Kendall like shit, and that is another reason I hate Ryan and Kendall together.

I feel you Jamey. I’m not a Ryan fan but if he can stick it to Zach, including taking his wife, then I’ll be the first to give Ryan a second chance. The whole Josh thing really disturbed me, particularly the way they wrote Erica. The Erica Kane I know would’ve swore revenge and carried it out but even they made her give the man a free pass. Wasn’t this the woman who gave Zach a patented Erica ‘forward hand-back hand-forward hand-hair flip’ Kane face slap just for setting his foot into Pine Valley? Her ‘I don’t blame you Zach’ attitude does not sit well with me to this day.

Word has it that Ryan's main tactic in putting a wedge between Zach and Kendall is by using Josh’s death and making it look intentional. I can’t wait.

Jamey really I usually agree with you but if DC did a top ten of the most abusive and dysfunctional relationships on soaps. Ryan and Kendall would be number one. As a woman I am insulted that would even think of putting this couple back together. It is basically putting an abuse victim. I really am not interested in seeing the daytime version of Sleeping with the Enemy. Although the thought of Ryan died makes me simile.

My Prediction if they TPTB put Kendall and Ryan back together the people at GL wouldn't have to worry AMC will take their place at the bottom. The ratings will sink

Zach Slater could beat, rape, murder or sleep with every single woman in Pine Valley and Llanview, I don't care. Hell, he could be the actual SERIAL KILLER in Llanview stabbing Blair right now and I still wouldn't want Ryan with Kendall. Zach might not be too good enough for Kendall, but he's the one she loves and wants. Deal with it and so should AMC. Ryan's no grand prize with his I-only-want-Kendall-when-Greenlee's-not-around-until-then-I'm-a-loving-a-new-woman-every-five-minutes fickle jerk!!!

Hmmm, and let's not forget that Ryan threatened to smash in Kendall's face at one time or that he and Greenlee had sex on Kendall's bed or that Ryan, the lovely woman abuser he is, raised his fist to his pregnant wife Greenlee. Yeah, Ryan's a real prince. And now, Ryan is going to be lying and using Kendall as little more than a prostitute. Geez Jamey, you must hate women as much as Charles Pratt.

If Ryan shows his love to Kendall by insulting her, trying to have her thrown in jail not once but twice, threaten to bash her face and break her jaw then please God I hope a man never loves me like that again. I was in a Rendall type relationship and it took me two years to heal physical and emotional scars

I feel sorry about Josh but I wouldn't want Spike and Ian around Ryan who is more like his abusive dad than her would care to admit.

Isn`t it funny that for nasty ex type remarks we have to reach back 5 yrs ? Yet Zach just betrayed Kendall callously and horribly this year?

And his apology ..." Some problem you have with your niece" ( step daughter/ God Daughter)

Well said Jamey!

Bring on Rendall

So glad Pratt isn`t listening to demands from just one group . Zendall have not brought in the ratings .

Rendall`s chemistry is still incandescent and their 7 year history the stuff of Daytime dreams .

Bring on the soapy drama . Don`t want to watch Zendall folding laundry and running errands .and betraying each other with secrets annually .

Ryan and Kendall are smokin`

BTW , Birdie , the rylee sex thing ? Didn`t happen .They kissed in her closet when Greenlee was trying on Kendall`s clothes . Even then Ryan was all about Kendall .

Five years, five months, five decades, it doesn't matter Ryan and Kendall together are toxic are it isn't only about them but Kendall has two small kids. Ryan has Emma who he basically abandoned. I mean really that poor kid better get a bus pass since her father can't seem to remember that school is over at three.

Sorry but I seriously doubt Rendall is going to happen especially when Kendall finds out the Ryan is only using her to get to Zach.

Toxic= Rendall
Semi Normal - Zendall

This is true. Zendall have NOT brought in ratings, so what's the harm in re-trying Rendall or just having Ryan as a spoiler?

That`s what Pratt seems to be thinking THEBEST.

Kendall is undoubtedly the best thing to have happened to Zach .But he has not returned the favor .

He jeopardized her relationship with her sister to make him feel better . Then told her he would have done it even if she`d asked him not to ?

That`s putting her first ?

Pratt can have Zach as his Zonny but he can`t have a Kane woman as his moll.

La Kane`s daughter doesn`t apologize to people for not being on board with having her brother killed . Just doesn`t .She also doesn`t get rebuked or marched out of business meetings in public .

The writers have ensured Kendall always loved Ryan a little and he her .

Kendall has got her voice and backbone back just in time for Rendall 3

think the Rendall magic is still there and I`m looking forward to seeing their scenes

Have to say , that Zeese kiss was explosive . Zach ain`t never kissed Kendall like that !
