Log in to Reply harlee490 March 28, 2013 Really…now they are pulling from “Jersey Shore” talentless crop…sad..not interested even more in OLTL :~ Log in to Reply mfarris70 March 28, 2013 WHAT ARE THEY THINKING?! I get that they want some stunt casting to get curious viewers but those viewers seldom stay and you end up losing your loyal viewers. But some ‘Jersey Shore’ trash? Is it 2009 in that Connecticut studio? Again, I ask, are they ripping pages from a book called How To Ruin Your Show and Alienate Your Viewers? Log in to Reply Alan Sarapa March 28, 2013 I assume it is a one episode bit part and she’ll only have a few lines, so I’m not going to get my panties in a bunch over this. At least they aren’t filling the show with old sitcom stars. Log in to Reply visitor101 March 28, 2013 Definitely won’t be ‘tuning in’ now. The show hasn’t aired one ep and they ruin it. Sad.

[/quote] You aren’t going to watch because a reality star has a bit part? I’m pretty sure all the soaps have done it now. Bold and Beautiful had that Bachelor guy on as a pilot. OLTL had Kortney Kardashian as a lawyer. Days used to have Ross Mathews pop up. It isn’t that serious. Log in to Reply gslam March 28, 2013 Not ONE freakin’ episode has aired and y’all are already bitching. Most likely, it’s a bit part in one episode. Get over it. As for me, I will reserve my judgment until I’ve viewed a good portion of the episodes. I’m a REAL OLTL fan – I’m supporting it all the way. Log in to Reply soapjunkie88 March 28, 2013 LMAO. Jersey Shore was so yesterday. There is nothing that would justify this stunt casting. Log in to Reply mfarris70 March 28, 2013 I’m “bitching” because I’m a OLTL fan for over three decades and I hate to see it cheapened this way. Even a bit part is too much. Log in to Reply Katiebug9624 March 28, 2013 Good grief i’m to the point were some people need to be told to “get over it” and be happy that your soap operas will be continuing stop bitching about bit parts going to actors/characters from Jersey Shore! There are plenty of fans who would do anything to see there soaps return. Log in to Reply Jamey Giddens March 28, 2013 The daytime version of OLTL had the one Kardashian sister know one cares about. I don’t see this as a deal breaker. LOL Log in to Reply alstonboy4315 March 28, 2013 Even though this is the equivalent of scraping the bottom of the barrel, it makes sense from a publicity standpoint. After all, they could have hired that damn Octomess or Kate Gossless instead……. Log in to Reply Alan Sarapa March 28, 2013 It isn’t like they are putting a wig on Chuy from Chelsea Lately and making him the new Jessica. Everyone needs to chill out. Log in to Reply mfarris70 March 28, 2013 BTW, Soap Digest says this is a recurring role, not a one time thing. I was never suggesting that I wouldn’t watch or wasn’t grateful the show is back, I’m merely questioning some odd decisions. I guess I’m one of the few that doesn’t think that reality stars are actual celebrities or worth caring about. Log in to Reply giogio March 28, 2013 I love the Jersey Shore people. They are all nice kids. Log in to Reply stoney07 March 28, 2013 Meh..its not a big deal to me. If the gal can act, I say bring her on…as recurring. I mean, what about when Kyle Brandt went from The Real World: Chicago to Philip Kiriakis on DAYS….its kind of the same thing. I’ll reserve judgment til later…but yeah, I understand why people think it’s odd….because it kind of is.

His sex scenes with Belle were pornography! Log in to Reply nysam March 29, 2013 Look on the bright side….she can’t be a worse actress that Farah Fath or Kristen Alderson. Log in to Reply pferrando March 29, 2013 I guess it’s some buzz. Her current “show” with Snookie still pulls in some decent ratings. How does he know that, you ask? :p Log in to Reply nysam March 29, 2013 TV Guide is reporting that it is a recurring role and will play “Nikki”. She works for Blair at a new club in town. Log in to Reply nysam March 29, 2013 I heard they tried to get Honey Boo Boo to play Sam’s love interest Log in to Reply harlee490 March 29, 2013 @nysam…my friends and I read this and literally fell out Laughing Out Loud…you got the best post of week…you GO! :bigsmile: :beer: Log in to Reply mfarris70 March 29, 2013 How about Mama June as Jessica Buchanan or Abby Lee from ‘Dance Moms’ as Tina Lord? Log in to Reply appleridge March 29, 2013 JWOW has over 3 Million twitter followers. So maybe they are hoping that her fans wil sample & enjoy OLTL Log in to Reply Daniel St. John March 29, 2013 At the very least they could try stunt casting with relevant reality people like a Mob Wife or a Real Housewife. People stopped caring about the Jersey Shore before OLTL went off the air the first time. Log in to Reply highdensity02 March 29, 2013 I, for one, am slightly excited about this. I hated Jersey Shore, but it was like a car accident…you just can’t look away!! And Jenni was the only one with common sense and seemed to be serious with her life, so I’m glad it was her who got the part and not any of the others. ALSO, for all we know, she could be a fantastic actress for all we know. And it’s not the first time a reality star turned into an actor: Nene Leakes Jennifer Hudson Katherine McPhee Yaya DeCosta David Giuntoli Josh Henderson All of them were reality stars FIRST before they became actors…and Jennifer Hudson even won an Oscar!! (though I think she still can’t act out of a paper bag) Log in to Reply No Daisy March 29, 2013 If you guys didn’t tell me, I’d not know she was anything more than an extra with a bad boob job when I watched.

Log in to Reply stoney07 March 29, 2013 Well when I logged onto my yahoo homepage, I saw JWOWW-OLTL as one of the trending topics….so they are clearly doing something right… Log in to Reply appleridge March 29, 2013 Ok what reality show was Josh Henderson on?
