Log in to Reply Regan Cellura June 3, 2010 Checked on that with the J-man! Tuc has a short term contract with OLTL for a specific amount of episodes.

IT’D BE GREAT TO SEE THEM USE HIS COMIC TIMING WITH VANESSA WILLIAMS :) GOOD LUCK Log in to Reply lilyredd June 3, 2010 [quote=Regan Cellura]Checked on that with the J-man!

What exactly did he say yesterday? Pa I think in this situation you’re the one that’s suppose to ge the happy ending? *Snort* Love you David!!! Log in to Reply Dariclone June 4, 2010 I’m glad for him but sad for myself as a David fan. Isn’t DH only going one more year? Log in to Reply bottomchef June 5, 2010 Even w/ the DH deal, Carlivati and Valentini will keep accomodating Watkins’s schedule to the detriment of long term storylines on OLTL. They’ll they take any scraps he throws at OLTL because IMO 1. they like the “publicity” someone from Primetime can garner for OLTL, 2. despite his lacking dramatic skills, they are enamored w/ his comedic acting and 3. there’s a common denominator between the 3! Isn’t it obvious? Winkety wink! They’re natural brunettes! Brunettes stick together since blondes have more fun. LOL! DH does not need him though. The gays were an inferior version to MF’s Mitchell and Cameron. All rahm’s character did was be the bitch, and all Watkins’s char did was react to him. And DH actually wrote a good ending for them. They broke up after a mere 7 years after their "wedding" since they could not adopt a baby or get a surrogate. And all DH does is cast white people: Felicia Tillman, the vet from Roseanne that went bonkers during the grocery hostage arc, Katherine, her daughter, her doctor hubby, her psycho ex, the stripper, Dave, the painter bf of Susan, Angie Bolen, her son, her hubby, the Russian golddigger, the Fairview strangler, etc. And now Tuc’s char is a regular. Enough w/ the white characters DH! The Applewhites were given a crappy storyline and written out. Now they have the Wilhelmina Slater in their cast: Vanessa Williams. They better write more for her than for Watkins. DH is abt the women. The men should always be second fiddle to the women of Wisteria Lane.
