HomeTVAll My ChildrenBlind Items: Soap Superstar’s Return Slated for August! Plus MORE Soap Riddles! Jamey Giddens June 1, 2010 64 Comments Blow out the candles. No more need for rain dances, or vigils, the season of silk pajamas, tramp stamps and sexy giggles is (almost) officially upon us. Word is SHE returns on screen in August. Just when I thought all hope was lost (sheds tear of unadulterated fanboy joy before going to listen to Prince). All pretenders to the throne beware, the original is on her way… Which showrunner is royally pissed off that an actress who played an iconic role on his or her soap in the 80′s is currently winning critical raves in a recurring role on a soap on another coast? Apparently the thesp-in-question was asked to return for a VSP (Very Special Episode) by her old soaping grounds in recent years, yet declined (Well her character did die onscreen!). Sounds like a soap-within-a-soap to me. Don’t be surprised if a soap guest star ends up sticking around indefinitely. Apparently the brass has become very enamored by the actor and are thinking of offering him or her a contract. One soap recently shifted everything storywise, preparing for the return of one of their most popular blasts from the past, only for the divo to decide at the last minute he’d rather have a V-8. People in the know are chuckling about how one soap loves to brag about having big names "on contract" to make it appear like a big get, when said contracts are always for very limited runs, sometimes as little as 40-something episodes. Talk about spin. Although TPTB hate a former soap star, who fans desperately want back on the soap, everytime the ratings dip too low, talk of bringing the actor back comes up. People are starting to whisper the words "burned out" about one daytime writer. Actors on one soap are scratching their heads about the storylines even moreso than the fans. As if being snubbed for a Daytime Emmy nod wasn’t enough, one of daytime’s recent breakout stars is on his or her way out, due to a soap entering into another round of insane budget cuts this summer. Expect more blood. One soap was so pissed off that a former actor landed a gig on a rival network, they actually attempted to leak nasty lies about the star! SCAN-DAL-OUS! A real-life couple on one soap is pushing TPTB to let them work together onscreen. Yeah, ’cause that always turns out so well. This one soap is just about ready to tell a demanding-but-insanely-popular diva where to go, and even has a contingency plan—a superstar from a recently cancelled soap, who is just itchin’ to join the cast of said show. Which E.P. has made such a sport of pissing off longterm, beloved stars of his show, that the network is starting to grow fearful no one will even come back to help celebrate a rather, um "poignant" moment in the show’s history? Residuals, what residuals? SOAPnet getting the Kish treatment in 18 months has industry peeps, who depended on the residual checks the cabler provided, post massive budget cuts and the financial shakedown of the Writers’ Strike, smarting. Which beloved, former soap couple is rumored to have been offered the chance to reunite on the hit reality competition series The Amazing Race? 64 Responses PurpleRocks June 1, 2010 Vanessa Marcil??!! I sure hope so! Log in to Reply Smitty June 1, 2010 Let the fun begin…these are some juicy blind items….sounds like that first one is Vanessa Marcil. Log in to Reply kcgeban June 1, 2010 This is juicy stuff…My mind is boggling…You guys should do this more often, I especially like that, unlike a certain Canadian blogger’s blind items, there’s no meanness in these.

Talk about spin. This one is definitely B&B…couldn’t be any other show! Log in to Reply Bourgeois Nerd June 1, 2010 Gee, Jamey, way to make the first one a "blind" item! La Marcil must be headed back to Port Chuckles! But what on earth are they going to have her DO? Oh, if only it were a prelude to setting Sonny off into the sunset… Number four’s gotta be OLTL. "Divo" could be the old Todd, but it could be Thorsten Kaye, too. I’m torn, because I’m still mad about the bloodbath used to facilitate it, but also grateful that neither will be appearing on my screen. Log in to Reply alstonboy4315 June 1, 2010 Actors scratching their heads about recent storylines more than the fans?? Only one soap opera is scraping the bottom of the barrel, writing-wise, enough to warrant such confusion– OLTL. Get Ron C. out of that broom closet, folks….and fire the REAL heathen who is writing that show right now. I don’t think it’s Ron. I really don’t. Snubbed for a Daytime Emmy…breakout star???Stacy Haiduk. Are they getting rid of that boring Emily character, and sending "Pattycake" into a padded cell PERMANENTLY?? I kinda hope they are. I have slowly started to hate both of these characters. Demanding but very popular soap star about to be shown the door??? Allison Sweeney?? I heard that she’s been throwing her weight around a lot lately, and trying to control everything—-direct, coach younger actors, and no doubt throw that extra "Biggest Loser" paycheck in everyone’s faces. I wouldn’t be surprised if she’s the one that’s getting the boot. Log in to Reply alstonboy4315 June 1, 2010 Okay, the first one is Vanessa Marcil, but I ain’t gonna be breaking out the party hats unless she’s planning on throwing Jax into her Prada bag and leaving town with him in tow. I REALLY wish that it was Genie Francis instead, but the show has proven how little they TRULY value her contributions to the show. I REALLY wish that it was Victoria Rowell, but I don’t see that happening…….(sniffle, sniffle!) Burnt out writer??? Easy. Brad Bell. He has clearly run out of innovative and interesting ideas, and it shows. He needs to take 6 months off and let Kay Alden write the show herself. Being offered a contract???? Ugh. I am thinking Sean Young. I am also thinking that Eric Braeden went into the production offices, threw his weight around a little bit, mumbled incoherently for about 20 minutes, and then STRONGLY suggested that they give his unstable female friend a contract. And they did so to appease him….GAG ME. Log in to Reply east.west June 1, 2010 No more being stingy w/dish huh Jamey! Well cracking me knuckles and trying to crack the code. Blow out the candles. Vanessa Marcil Which showrunner is royally pissed off: Frank V. @ Jessica Tuck Don’t be surprised James Franco or Sean Young One soap recently shifted OLTL Thorsten Kaye. So much for that new direction. People in the know B&B Although TPTB hate a former soap star Genie Francis or Victoria Rowell. People are starting to whisper Ron Carlivati Actors on one soap OLTL As if being snubbed Stacy Haiduk One soap was so pissed Eden Riegel A real-life couple Molly Burnett & Caesy Diedrick This one soap is just about ready to tell a demanding-but-insanely-popular diva where to go, Alison Sweeney.

I think I know the industry really really well, but I can’t seem to link up a single clue with any of the info I know. I guess I am just frustrated because I have no clue really about anything listed above. Log in to Reply kcgeban June 1, 2010 Allison Sweeney??………. I wouldn’t be surprised if she’s the one that’s getting the boot. From your lips to God and Ken Corday’s ears, alstonboy. The girl no longer does it for me….But I really don’t see the show surviving without her. Log in to Reply alstonboy4315 June 1, 2010 Kcgeban— LOL!! If the show can survive without the QUEEN of Salem, Deidre Hall, then certainly it can survive without Allison Sweeney. I don’t see her as being in the same league as Deidre was, so if she were to leave, they would probably just hire another out-of-work actress to come on and play the town villainess and keep it moving. The show would definitely go on…. Log in to Reply Jillian Bowe June 1, 2010 DaytimeFan, the blind items are just that BLIND ITEMS! They are suppose to tease you on who they are but NOT give them away hence the name. Log in to Reply kcgeban June 1, 2010 Alstonb, I was referring to the fact that NBC, to all intents and purposes, seem to think of the show as the Days of Sami’s Life….She’s the one that gets all those primetime morsels thrown her way. Log in to Reply DaytimeFan0001 June 1, 2010 Haha I know, I’m just being stubborn because I am frustrated that I can’t use my knowledge to match anything lol. i am disappointed in myself. However, I am not a fan of blind items, but I can’t look away! Log in to Reply Jillian Bowe June 1, 2010 Well DaytimeFan, since you know the industry as you’ve said, "very well," maybe u can figure the items out. Like the 4th one is on… Wait PC’s crashing uh oh!

Log in to Reply DaytimeFan0001 June 1, 2010 Why can’t you just release this information? haha…it’s killing me Log in to Reply babyc June 1, 2010 One soap was so pissed: I wouldn’t be surprised if this was AMC and Eden Riegel. Log in to Reply alstonboy4315 June 1, 2010 Farah Fath…LOL!! One of the few actresses in daytime who can LEAST afford to be throwing stones is probably the one who is PARTIALLY responsible for Scott Clifton being axed!!! He probably reminded her that she’s not the best thing since sliced bread—with that sarcastic wit that Scott has (just watch his blog on YouTube, "Theoretical Bull**it", and you’ll see what I’m referring to.)……And ditto for Crystal Hunt. She probably recognized that Crystal was a better actress, WHICH she was and is, and got threatened at the notion of being declared THIRD rate—which, unfortunately, she IS. I can totally see that. She also seems like an arrogant attention hog. Something about her just SCREAMS "Look at me, notice me, even though I am mediocre at best!!!!" Log in to Reply INAHAM730 June 1, 2010 Jamey,blind items are suppose to be hard to figure out.So,Brenda in August,Jessica Tuck ticked off Valentini,Michael Learned will be uncancerfied,Thorsten must’ve given OLTL the finger,B&B always has a name they barely use,so this makes sense,Genie Francis is not beloved by the brass,Brad Bell has clearly lost the plot,Y&R has serious plot holes that the actors have to notice,Stacey Haiduk is definitely in danger,Eden Riegel is somewhere drinking 40′s and holding up her middle finger to ABC,Melody Thomas Scott rocking the boat is no shock (Hi Kim Zimmer),Chris Goutman is a doofus,that last one is a mystery,but CBS soladarity tells me Kim Zimmer and Robert Newman. Log in to Reply josser June 1, 2010 Farah Fath? Please. She doesn’t have any power. She’s not a super star. Frankly, I don’t understand how any actor/actress believes he or she can afford to be high maintenance. Actors are disposable these days. Soaps don’t have the budget, patience, or decency to cater to the demands of staff. Actors should be grateful to have a job in this economy. No, I don’t believe that they should tolerate abuse. They should fight for decent treatment and fair pay. But, things are very, very, very bad. I think the death of SoapNet in 2012 may hurt Days and Y&R. The fees won’t be there to support their budgets. Log in to Reply AllmyDaysatGh June 1, 2010 Just when I thought all hope was lost (sheds tear of unadulterated fanboy joy before going to listen to Prince). LoL, that right there just SCREAMS Vanessa Marcil. Wasn’t she in one of Prince’s music videos in the 90′s? Log in to Reply yllianos June 1, 2010 This clue made it sound like Cady McClain: Which showrunner is royally pissed off that an actress who played an iconic role on his or her soap in the 80′s is currently winning critical raves in a recurring role on a soap on another coast? Apparently the thesp-in-question was asked to return for a VSP (Very Special Episode) by her old soaping grounds in recent years, yet declined (Well her character did die onscreen!). Sounds like a soap-within-a-soap to me. Log in to Reply soapfan8 June 1, 2010 Thank u inaham730 and thank u for the anwsers I had a gut feelin it was melody Thomas Scott. Allison sweeney really I don’t believe she’s diva ish or waving her biggest loser paychecks in peoples faces yes she is in no league with my diedre hall and she’s not tryin to be I would be surprised as long as their is a biggest loser she ain’t goin nowhere days would go on without sami tho but when Marlena was leavin she was just with roboJohn no real story even before her firing in a storyline sami is too intertwined it would be a show overhaul she’s in a triangle with rafe ej theirs her kids she has to find out the truth from rafe theirs will under Stefano’s influence too much to drop her. I think she’s sweet and down to earth and I feel days is one soap with less backstage drama like others days cast are friends they hang out together in real life and not just for a fan tour but dinner dates and to the gym. I’m pissed I will miss Stacey if it’s her it should have been like Tamera Braun off days but got Emmy but she is snubbed sucks why even bring the talent if your gonna let it go it was a pleasure watching her award winning performances but if ur gonna lose her then write for the veterans yr cast is too crammed as it is. Will miss her. Log in to Reply terrifictam June 1, 2010 Thanks Jamey — so entertaining. I love reading everyones’ guesses just as much as trying to figure it out myself! Log in to Reply curacaoman June 1, 2010 What is Vanessa Marcil going to do? Be on for 5 seconds, every 4 four days? Log in to Reply appleridge June 1, 2010 The One Tattling sounds like Farah fath and Im sorry But i wouldnt be surprised If she "Leaked" Those Rumors about Brett Claywell and Scott Evans Being UnProfessional Sounds Like Jealously To me Cause Their Story Kicked Ass & hers Does Not & Never Has Log in to Reply CarlyCfan June 1, 2010 I hope Days get rid of Ali Sweeney i can not stand her overrated ass and i find the Days of Sami’s life unwatchable Speaking of overrated, i couldn’t care less about Vanessa Marcil. Speaking of NOT overrated, as much as like Stacy Haiduk, Pattycakes is starting to annoy me and Emily is a bore, so i wouldn’t mind it that much if Y&R fired her. Log in to Reply blackjack21 June 1, 2010 Nothing against VM, but i’m glad i’m not the only one not thrilled by her return. i think there’s too much going on now that doesn’t include her and having her on would be a distraction. but we’ll see if they can manage not to mess it up. Log in to Reply Marland Fan June 1, 2010 The burned-out writer has to be RC at OLTL. Nothing is working on this show. Log in to Reply appleridge June 1, 2010 Or Brad Bell At B&B Log in to Reply PurpleRocks June 1, 2010 AllMyDaysAtGH, yes I think it’s was Prince’s "the most beautiful girl in the world" video or something like that. I just hope they don’t underuse VM like they’re doing with Skye. It seems like Skye has no storyline. But then again, VM will probably be pushed into some mob storyline so she will be on all the time. Anyone that gets to be involved with one of the current mobsters will get enough screentime. I hope Brenda comes back with a kid, preferably Jax’s. That’ll make Carly fume. I have no idea who I’d want Brenda back with (and I don’t really care since I just love watching her). I loved her most with Jason. They were so funny together. That’d b pretty cool, a Brenda/Jason/Sam triangle with Sonny and Jax eating their hearts out. But we all know they’ll never do that to Jasam… Log in to Reply blake3b June 1, 2010 I thought the same thing about the actress being replaced would be Melody on Y&R and that Kim Zimmer is the itching actress as well! Sounds like Stacey is the one on Y&R that doesn’t have much time left. Farrah Fath sounds like the other blind item, I hope not cause she doesn’t have room to talk about any other actors. I’m sorry but Rex and Gigi are soooo boring to me!

I think it would be great if Jason’s divorce from Brenda was null & void and it is found out when he is still married to her while he is getting ready to walk down the aisle with Sam. Log in to Reply PurpleRocks June 1, 2010 Ravennite, that is such a good idea! Jason and Sam go to get married but can’t because he’s still legally married to Brenda. So awesome! I wish the writers read this stuff. Log in to Reply Marland Fan June 1, 2010 @yllianos Can’t be Cady. She came back to the show not too long ago. Plus most of her run was in the ’90s. Log in to Reply Katiebug9624 June 1, 2010 As a former 90′s watcher of GH, who gets annoyed nonstop with the current writing on GH. There are only a few things that would cause me to watch again they are: Laura coming back, more Quartermains, less mob, and freaking Brenda Barrett! So I guess 1 out of 4 aint bad. Log in to Reply PurpleRocks June 1, 2010 Katiebug, if the writers do it right, bringing Brenda back could also give us more Q’s. So you might get 2 out of 4 Log in to Reply inspiron June 1, 2010 One soap recently shifted everything storywise, preparing for the return of one of their most popular blasts from the past, only for the divo to decide at the last minute he’d rather have a V-8.

Log in to Reply Katiebug9624 June 1, 2010 inspiron It could be Roger Howarth but my guts telling me its Mr. Brown Penny himself. I think thats why they had Cole go crazy on Todd they planned on bringing Patrick back but maybe at the last minute he said "naaa no thanks" Log in to Reply Katiebug9624 June 1, 2010 I bet the burned out writer is whoever is writing Days, because they seriously havent done much since the baby storyline. Log in to Reply inspiron June 1, 2010 Katiebug, I agreebut TK was never one of OLTL’s "most popular" even though he is one of ABC and AMC’s most popular……… Maybe I’m reading it too literally LOL and you are right about TK being the "divo" LOL Log in to Reply Ryan-Scott June 1, 2010 Vanessa Marcil is the 1st one. The rest…..well there is no "answer key" as they used to say in school so I don’t know. Log in to Reply Katiebug9624 June 1, 2010 I dunno Patrick/Marty were kinda a huge deal if I remember actually I myself was kind of crazy about them lol I even gave up Dylan/Marty for them sigh…. Log in to Reply Analiza June 1, 2010 [quote=east.west]…cracking me knuckles and trying to crack the code. [/quote] Great guesses. I think you’re probably right about most, but I had some other thoughts on a few: Don’t be surprised: James Franco or Sean Young - I was thinking Franco too but please let INAHAM730 be right about it being Michael Learned instead. One soap recently shifted: OLTL Thorsten Kaye. – Couldn’t think who this one might be; I hope this isn’t true because I’ve wanted to see Patrick come back for a long time. Susan and Thorsten are the exception to the couples’ acting rule. Although TPTB hate a former soap star: Genie Francis or Victoria Rowell. - I figured Victoria (what do TPTB have against Genie?) People are starting to whisper: Ron Carlivati - Actually this could really be any of them. Actors on one soap: OLTL - I think it’s either GH or Y&R. One soap was so pissed: Eden Riegel - I was thinking Scott Clifton but Eden does make more sense. A real-life couple: Molly Burnett & Caesy Diedrick - Didn’t know (or care) that they are a couple. I figured, with all the airtime that B&B is giving Kyle Lowder, that he and wife Arianne Zucker might be campaigning to have him return to DOOL. Bonus: Farah Fath - I hope you’re wrong about this because I’m one of the few people who actually likes Farah. My guess would be Jackie Wood. Log in to Reply Analiza June 1, 2010 [quote=MrNovelas]♫Oh…Oh Sheila let me love you till the morning comes!♫ The Blind item should ask to which soap is she returning to.[/quote] They DID mention Sheila on B&B today. Could this be why Windsor Harmon was bumped to recurring and rumors have three other cast members getting the boot? Or are we just going to get her stupid daughter Daisy (hopefully recast) following Amber and "Eric" (aka Little D.) to Los Angeles? Log in to Reply caogra June 1, 2010 Somebody please tell me why Genie Francis isn’t back on GH. She wants to come back. God know the show needs her! I don’t understand!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Guza has got to be the burned out writer. He is running this show into the ground! Log in to Reply Ryan-Scott June 2, 2010 Right…the burn-out writer can be on really any daytime show…. Log in to Reply tolliveramc June 2, 2010 That second item is definitely OLTL/Days and Jessica Tuck (nice hint in "soap within a soap," which Jessica’s Megan starred in in "Fraternity Row"). Cady’s recently appeared on AMC in the cameo for Palmer’s tribute, so it wouldn’t make sense for it to be her. Log in to Reply RebeccaJ June 2, 2010 I think blind items usually give you clues of some sort. But I’m so bad at reading them, that I thought the first one was referring to Dru…LOL! Log in to Reply RebeccaJ June 2, 2010 And why in the WORLD would anything think "critical raves" refers to Eden Riegel when she just started to actually get lines on Y&R? Up till now, she’s done NADA. Log in to Reply Llanview76 June 2, 2010 I use to love Rex and Gigi, I thought they were truly a romantic couple to watch. Then I began to notice how much they really kill scenes they are in with other performers. I know actors love to take risks, but after recently seeing the story of Rex’s parentage play out with J-P and Farah as Rick and Lili I thought this was a flagrant abuse of one’s craft. Farah Fath was getting pretty solid for a while, but now her character is such a twit, I just want them to both go. I mean really, what is keeping them on the canvas? Erik Log in to Reply Llanview76 June 2, 2010 And to clarify, it’s not just the character of Gigi, I feel Ms. Fath has lost her ability to emote on any serious level. And regarding JPL, if I had a quarter for everytime he mugged on camera I could cash in and buy SoapNet. Erik Log in to Reply lilyredd June 2, 2010 Please say it is NOT RS!!!!!!!!!!! CZP is lovely, but Dorian she ain’t. There have been a few recasts, but RS IS Dorian. Zimmer is not needed on OLTL as an recast anything or a new or old character (Echo). Log in to Reply inspiron June 2, 2010 This one soap is just about ready to tell a demanding-but-insanely-popular diva where to go, and even has a contingency plan—a superstar from a recently cancelled soap, who is just itchin’ to join the cast of said show. I’m thinking Maura West is the replacer and I’m hoping BW is the replacee…… I hope it’s not RS being replaced with CZP because I love them both. Oh no, it’s not ES being replaced by KZ???

She didn’t coddle him and ask what he thought before she chose a side. I say save Sam from the horrible treatment she gets now and bring on Brenda.

Too bad really, as I love Marty and was hoping he would return to give her a real relationship. Log in to Reply mrsa1107 June 6, 2010 I’m sorry I am just getting around to commenting on these items: Blow out the candles: Vanessa Marcil is coming back to GH for a short term run Which showrunner is royally pissed off: Frank V must be pissed about Jessica Tuck’s recurring status with DAYS– especially after she was suppose to be Viki’s tour guide through Heaven for their past anniversary show– but Jess backed out & Erin T filled in as an aged version of Jessica’s daughter Megan Dont be surprised if guest star sticks: I assume its SEAN YOUNG- I mean what else is the lady doing these days?? One soap recently shifted everything/DIVO: This sooooooooo sounds like Thorsten K backed out of his rumored OLTL return. I am shocked BF is allowing this. I assumed he would have moved heaven and earth to keep him on ABC. I bet this isnt the last of it with him & OLTL. I bet they ressume talks. Especially for Susan’s sake– she has basically nothing in term sof storyline potential at OLTL– I think they were gearing her up for his return. And I kinda assusmed he was suppose to be Rex’s REAL FATHER. ANd if that is true– they will now scramble to fill in someone else as his pops People in the know/Big names "on contract": I assume this is Y&R or B&B– cause everytime you look — you see headlines of some big name primetime and daytime vets joining their casts Although TPTB hate a former soap star: This is soooooooooooooooooooooooo Genie Francis. Everytime GH hits a low- there are rumors of GF & VM cioming back. But it always appears the network is trying to work on a Brenda return– where as all we really hear about GF is that she would return to the hsow & GH says they would love her back if/when the storyline was right People are starting to whisper "burned out": I have two thoughts in mind here— either B&B or OLTL. B&B is not a show I watch but many on line fans are upset with the currrent storylines– and as a OLTL fan I kinda feel that its just stuck in a rut! Actors on soap scratching their heads about storyline: Again I may say OLTL is this one too- although it sounds different then the one above. I just think that the show is lacking some direction right now– so the cast must be thinking "WTF" is going on here. It seems like storylines keep shifting midway through. Breakout star on her way out: Rumors are flowing that AMC will be making some more cuts before the fall– so I have a feeling this could pretain to AMC– maybe Melissa Claire Egan or Chrishell Strause???????????? And the word bloodbath is making me think GH– so maybe Nathan Pasins?? Diva where to go/ superstar of cancelled soap itchin to join cast: This one has KIM ZIMMER all over it in my head! I think Kim is trying to land a new soap gig– but the question is which soap would she be itchin to join??? Knowing she is a Jersey Girl– makes me assume it may be OLTL she wants to join so she and her family would not need to relocate. Could that mean that Robin S would get the boot? I feel however that Robin has been willing to bend as much as possible to stay with the show. My other thought was that Kim may want to join Y&R or B&B just cause of where they are at in the ratings. Could Susan F get the boot & Kim Z join the cast or will she be a Niki recast on Y&R?? Log in to Reply Leave a Reply Cancel Reply You must be logged in to post a comment.
