HomeTVAll My ChildrenHey Fronsie, Maybe Thorsten and Alicia Just Aren’t That Into You? Jamey Giddens October 2, 2009 All My Children 25 Comments You must love me…TV Guide Canada‘s Nelson Branco is hearing ABC just doesn’t want to accept the fact that both Thorsten Kaye and Alicia Minshew aren’t staying with Pine Valley, 90210. Never trust a major network. In its press release trumpeting which stars will be making the historic move to L.A. at the end of this year, Alicia Minshew’s name was on the statement as being on “maternity leave.” However, Suds has learned that ABC didn’t want to announce that she and Thorsten Kaye, who, as we previously reported, would not make the move, have quit the show together. A source close to Minshew states, “ABC isn’t taking no for answer! They suggested to Lish to have the baby first, then decide, like she can’t think straight. But Alicia wants out even though she plans on briefly returning to wrap up her storyline. Her husband just bought his third restaurant in New York City, and she doesn’t want to spend her baby’s first year on a plane.” And star on one of the worst shows in the history of television. Hmm, maybe Lish should download Destiny’s Child‘s hit 90’s song "Bugaboo" as ring tone for Fronsie? You make me wanna throw my pager out the window, Tell MCI to cut the phone poles, Break my lease so I can move, ‘Cause you a bugaboo, a bugaboo, I wanna put yo number on the call block, Have AOL make my email stop, Cause you a bugaboo, Ya’ bugging what, ya bugging who, ya bugging me and don’t you see it aint’ cool. I feel you girl, nobody likes a bugaboo! 25 Responses miss_c October 2, 2009 Nooooooooo!!! Well that just kills all my reasons to watch AMC Log in to Reply keanna October 2, 2009 Great using of lyrics for one of Destiny’s Child first hits, Jamey. I don’t think Fronsie anticipated that both would say no. Safe to say that he is in denial. Alicia and Thorsten want to get out of this terrible soap, so they are being smart, good for them. Sorry Fronsie!!!!! Log in to Reply KDMASK October 2, 2009 I’m actually surprised more didn’t leave. he’s lucky they are commuting. Log in to Reply season1217 October 2, 2009 I hate that song. That’s not a bugaboo, that’s a stalker. Call 911! Log in to Reply Crustee October 2, 2009 Maybe LaLucci, David C and MEK should have taken a stand along with AM and TK. Either fire Pratt or we are all staying put in NYC. Log in to Reply GossipGirl October 2, 2009 What will Erica Kane do without any of her daughters in Pine Valley? Make-out wih her grandson’s father some more, I guess. Log in to Reply angrierblackerman October 2, 2009 Now would be the time for her and TK to flex their muscle and demand that Chuck Pratt be fired. I would sooooo use that as my bargaining chip. Log in to Reply snizzle October 2, 2009 Talk about a major backfire for ABCD.. Outside of TK and AM, Frons probably couldn’t care less if the rest of the cast stayed in NY. Too bad for him his 2 favorites are the 2 that are walkin’ Log in to Reply matealestlmo October 2, 2009 Yowza! I had no idea that TK and AM really hated working on that show as of late. For them to call AMC the worst show on TV is very ballsy and brave of them to say that. Yeesh, I would have kept my mouth shut UNTIL after they’ve taped their final scenes and then let Fronzie and Pratt know how they really feel (and I don’t even watch AMC)! Log in to Reply luverica October 2, 2009 I was really hoping that Susan Lucci would decide not to stay with AMC so as to quicken its death but, oh well. As much as I love Susan, I do wholeheartedly agree with Jamey regarding her decision to play company girl and not stand up for, and I love the way Jamey put this, “the house that Susan Lucci built”. Log in to Reply hunterforrester October 2, 2009 I called AMC the worst show on TV, not them! Log in to Reply amberwaves October 2, 2009 I hate to say this, but Thorsten AND Alicia joining OLTL may be the only thing that may save it, along with beating AMC in demos, ect. Log in to Reply season1217 October 2, 2009 They suggested to Lish to have the baby first, then decide, like she can’t think straight. She’s pregnant so she must not be thinking straight. That sounds like our Fronsie.:P Log in to Reply season1217 October 2, 2009 Which soap superstar says that she’s humiliated and ashamed of the garbage dialogue she’s been given and actually apologizes to her castmates and crew before and after her scenes are filmed? And yes, it’s who you think it is. Denise Vasi. Log in to Reply TV Gord October 2, 2009 Nelson, your column is a riot! I loved the sporadic hypnotic suggestions. I giggled about 1/4 of the way in and then the rest of the way through! I gave up on AMC just before Stuart was murdered (I watched the day he was murdered–which was just AWFUL–and I watched the first day of the dance marathon to see if it was as bad as I expected it would be) and I haven’t missed it. OLTL is too good to give up and even though I’ve only been watching it for a few years (as opposed to my 30 years of watching AMC), I think your campaign to shift the focus from AMC to OLTL is brilliant and might just work! If everyone climbs on board, fans could actually make Frons and Pratt leave in disgrace! Keep hope alive! Log in to Reply keanna October 2, 2009 Great article Nelson, can’t help but laugh because Fronsie probably thought that his two favorite AMC actors would move, while others wouldn’t. Guess they pulled a fast one on you, hey Fronsie!!! I agree, since Thorsten and Alicia are standing up and saying they hate the direction of the show, maybe MEK, DC, DM, DW, and most importantly, LaLucci should stand up and say the same thing. I know you want to work, but you guys have to hate the direction this show has taken. AGNES!!! PLEASE SAVE YOUR SOAPS!!! Log in to Reply paulababe October 3, 2009 I am relieved that Zendall will be no more. They have gotten really REALLY boring and I know they can do better somewhere else. Maybe Thorsten on OLTL………I loved him as Patrick Thornheart! Godspeed to you Thorsten and Alicia, I hope to see you both again someday! Log in to Reply hunterforrester October 3, 2009 I forgot to write this today, but no offense to Alicia and her fans, but I’d recast that role in a heartbeat. There are so many actresses who could play Kendall. And better. Sorry, I said it. Log in to Reply hunterforrester October 3, 2009 Season — I hope and pray you’re joking about the blind item (and I’m sure you are) but I did say SUPERSTAR. Log in to Reply season1217 October 3, 2009 I don’t joke about my superstars. I’m sorry but when she bent over and said ouch because she was feeling pain and having a miscarriage I was riveted. I was reminded of a miscarriage I never even had. Log in to Reply EricasEvilTwin October 3, 2009 I would love to see Zendall come to Llanview!! Log in to Reply binksfan999 October 3, 2009 I’ve never been a big fan of Zendull. She’s a whiny, pathetic, needy woman, and he’s a controlling, abusive jerk!!! So I am kind of glad both TK and AM are taking a walk away from AMC. That being said, I will not watch this trainwreck of a show until Frons, Pratt, or better yet, both are fired. When Pratt lied to both Eden Riegel and Tamara Braun about Breese, it was time for me to stop watching after years of doing so. I wish TK and AM the best. Hey Fronsie, life’s a B**** ain’t it!!!! Log in to Reply Newmanwins October 3, 2009 I don’t want to see Zendall come to Llanview…but it seems like a lock now TK will return to OLTL..probably anyday now we will hear something. Log in to Reply Dariclone October 3, 2009 Fronsie and Pratt need to get their heads out of um, the sand and see what they’re doing to this show before it’s too late. I agree with angrierblackerman who said TK and AM should use CHuc Pratt being fired as their barganing chip. Too bad it will probably never happen. Log in to Reply naughtytomato October 3, 2009 Wow. Can’t blame them. Aren’t they popular with the fans though? More bad for AMC. Log in to Reply Leave a Reply Cancel Reply You must be logged in to post a comment.
