Will Josh and Reva "Always" Have Oakdale?





TV Guide Canada's Nelson Branco posted his Suds Report a little early this week because of Independence Day. One juicy bit from the online column  has As The World Turns brass interested in absorbing one of Guiding Light's most iconic couples.

Word from Brooklyn is that World Turns wants Kim Zimmer and Robert Newman to crossover their popular super-couple pairing, Reva and Josh, to their show. That sound you hear? Me screaming, “Run, Kim and Robert, run!”

Hmm, wonder if all powers concerned will allow one of daytime's favorite couples to finally reunite on this show?

Jamey, you know what would be good if Lucinda and Reva are friends, From Lewis Oil and Walsh Endistry's.. etc., anways Reva could runaway with Colin to OD and hide from Josh and Josh chassers her and they get married in OD.. Or somethign like that.

I always believed that the crossover would come down to Otalia or Kim and Rob and of course they would want Josh and Reva since they are GL's iconic couple. Actually I thought that they wanted Reva/Josh/Shane/Dinah but since Gina is leaving that must of been squashed.

ahh that makes sense. I wouldn't mind Reva and Josh to move to Oakdale but i'm afraid of the storylines they would get plus they would have to reunite them very quickly on GL, to have them move to Oakdale but I could see it. Reva could say something like "needed a change of scenery since losing Jeffrey" and Josh following her but not letting Reva know he's following her.

I find it funny that TV Guide **CANADA's** article is early because of Independence Day.

I believe this will be just like it was when the Another World characters crossed over after THAT show's cancellation. It's all about tptb getting their money's worth out of these play-or-pay actors. As soon as their contracts are done, these characters will be "cancelled", too.

Wouldn't Otalia have been the better choice? Or is having two homosexual couples on one show too much?

This is too funny. Josh and Reva can't be together on GL, but it's okay for them to be together on ATWT. The one thing that could of saved GL isn't good enough for GL, but it's okay for ATWT. Sounds fishy if true.

well i forgot when is jeffery kickin it?? soon right they could have a fast storyline (you know ATWT style) of putting josh and reva back together.....i'll believe anything for them to be back together and at ATWT that works for me to as long as there still on my screen Smile

Well I would rather they NOT go to Oakdale, and this is coming from someone who watched ATWT regularly once upon a time. I would rather remember Jeva as they were, in Springfield, and not see what ATWT's head writer Jean P. would do with them. And to make it worse, Kreizman is going over there after GL ends, so NO, to Jeva moving to Oakdale!

Where are they going to fit Josh and Reva into this already supersize cast in which only half the characters get used as it is? I love Kim and Robert but I don't want this to be a stunt casting where they are marched out as often as Nancy Hughes. Also note to Robert and Kim: Watch this show before you sign up.

So what show is Jack and Carly going to reunite on when ATWT is cancelled? There won't be anymore P&G soaps or am I going to have to learn Mandarin?

ATWT did not want Otalia, CC did an intereview and was asked about that, she said they were not interested.
The already have a big gay frontburner storyline on that show with Luke.

I think the rumor was that the show wanted 4 GL characters, one that was noted was GT's Dinah.
Reva & Josh were rumored to be heading to ATWT from the start. So maybe the four were Josh,Reva,Dinah & Shayne.

If KZ & RN can get paid for another year, I say go for it.

Well, In all honesty, I would like to remember these two in their glory days of Springfield. I mean, come on, it's already depressing enough that this wonderful show and cast is breaking up, but for the supercouple of soaps to move towns? SO WRONG :/ Let them forever and ALWAYS live in Springfield. And yet again, I feel as if I could cry.

Soaps need to work on getting a product out there that is watchable and stop worrying about stunt casting. Viewers might tune in to see a certain actor or actress but they won't stay if the show sucks. ATWT and AMC are currently the bone yard for daytime tv soap vets. And their ratings haven't improved even a little.
Honestly we viewers do not care that a soap star from another show is on a soap.
Nancy Grahn is one of my all time favorites as is A Martinez, as is Beth Ehlers, as is Ricky Goldin, and I could keep on going, but you won't see me watching the soaps that they appear on because I don't like them.
What we do care about are the people on the shows we watch. And if the casting dept starts filling our show up with other shows cast members, it just turns us off.
And then we turn off.

I'm more intrigued in Jeanne Cooper and Jess Walton wanting to be on the final episode. WTF? That's random. I do like the idea IF they play characters from the past who don't really need their original portrayers back unlike characters like Holly or Nola (hopefully we'll get to see them both). Jeanne could play Trudy or Meta Bauer which would be a nice tribute since they were on when the show started in 1952, on TV that is. Jess could play maybe Amanda Spaulding or rather Elizabeth Granville, Phillip's adoptive mom, if Ron Raines can pull it off, she can - or she could be the woman Alan rides off into the sunset with. Perhaps they just want to just be there, not necessarily play anybody. I'm curious to see if anything happens.
I hope the final episode will make me cry, I'll need it. That speech at the Bauer BBQ did, and I was there thinking I was going to roll my eyes, lol!

Here is an hilarious video from youtube spoofing tptb at atwt.

Kind of cathartic for those of us who have been watching the show for years and miss the vets who are so underused while they bring on new characters constantly.

I think they should put Josh and Reva on Y&R, Josh can walk the dog with Ashley and Reva can be Catherine's "real" long lost daughter, that then kicks Nicky on the side and wins Victor's heart. Maybe not Victor, but Jack perhaps. Then Reva is beautiful again in her diamond and pearls and Josh is a hotty that goes to B&B from time to time on business to drive all the Logans "crazy".

Now there's a story line. What do you think?
