DC #726: Billions Served



On today’s Daytime Confidential podcast Luke Kerr, Jamey Giddens, Jillian Bowe and Melodie Aikels dish the latest All My Children, The Bold and the Beautiful, Days of Our Lives, General Hospital, One Life to Live and The Young and the Restless storylines and headlines, including:

Heather Tom rocks The Bold and the Beautiful in a bad-ass performance as Katie Logan. Brooke and Bill try to blame Katie for their despicable actions. Caroline manipulates Remy and Christina…er….Carter and Maya into kissing. Liam gets to see the other side of the coin with his flip-flopping.

Jen Lilley makes her debut as Theresa on Days of Our Lives opposite Casey Moss’ JJ. A grand jury lets Sami go free. Is Days of Our Lives going to be bring back a Devil storyline?

Emma’s doll gets grilled on General Hospital. GH fans are finally getting front burner hospital storylines, but should there be more legacy characters involved? GH needs to get its corporate storylines ironed out.

Should the revelation about Summer have taken place at Jack’s birthday? Much of the paternity storyline is falling flat because of new Kyle and Abby. Does Kyle need to be recast again? Would Julie Marie Berman make a better Abby? Why is Robert Adamson being wasted making drinks? Should Noah and Nick have a giant rift that leads Adam to be Noah’s mentor? Chloe and Billy share great scenes on The Young and the Restless.


Is One Life to Live teasing a relationship between Arturo and Dani? Would an Arturo and Tea pairing be hot?

Alicia Minshew returns to All My Children as Kendall Hart Slater. While it was nice to see Kendall and Bianca reunite onscreen, if Minshew can’t come back permanently should Prospect Park recast the role?

The Daytime Confidential gang then weigh in on the previews for The Real, starring Tamar Braxton, Adrienne Bailon, Jeannie Mai, Tamera Mowry-Housley and Loni Love.

Abby is actually doing fine, and she really shouldn't be that involved with the paternity storyline anyway. No need for YET another recast, let alone from GH. Enough.

As for the paternity story itself with the main players, I don't find it's falling flat at all. More Bergman, Stafford, King, and Morrow!

Kyle isn't doing it for anyone though it seems. I'd love Blake to return, but maybe a recast should be in the works for this guy.

I loved the point made about Jessie on AMC. The writers have ruined that character. He used to stand for something. But Jessie has been lying to Angie since he came back from the dead and it's not entertaining anymore.

He lied about being dead, his secret child, his secret wife, his dead baby, and now Cassandra. It makes Angie look stupid and Jessie look corrupt because there are only so many times you can lie to your wife for her own good.

So yeah. Bring on David and Angie. I'm so ready for that. Because at least David never pretends to be anybody but himself while he holds up a mirror to the hypocrisy of Pine Valley.

On a side note, it's a trip how Jamey and Jillian always say,"Let me finish!" when they NEVER let poor Luke finish. It's okay, Luke. I'm here for ya, buddy. (Leave my Luke alone!!!)

I think nuAbby is doing a great job, and I wish she could be on contract, as should Ashley's daughter be. She is slowly making Abby out to be a decent and kind person, sort of like a stable Newman-Abbott female (first time for everything!).

Kyle is difficult on this whole story-line, because instead of showing Summer and Kyle in love, like The Show did in 1994 with Cole and Victoria. The Show was instead, showing Phyllis and Kyle, which didnt work at all.

Peter Bergman and Haley King are carrying this story-line, with Nick still not getting too loud, or too emotional (which is a code word for typical Josh Morrow). But, all in all, it's not too bad of a story-line.

Today was great, as Nick had to tell ol Vic about Summer, and the first thing ol Vic said thought was, Jack Abbott beat me! You go JoshG, you go guy. To me, having Noah front and center, with Nikki in the wings, was a big miss, but hey, cant have everything we want, can we?

The actress playing Abby is one of the few newbies that I actually like. I hasten to add that I wasn't watching for most of Emme (or Marcy as she was known then) Rylan's portrayal of Abby.

I am loving Melissa Ordway as the new Abby! To me this is how Victor Newman and Ashley Abbott's daughter always should have been as she not only looks the part (and really could pass for Eileen Davidson's daughter) but acts like an heiress not a naked heiress. I honestly never bought ER's version of Abby and never thought she sparked with any guy on the show. This Abby however has major sparks with Tyler. I think she's the best newbie in the Jill/Josh era by far.

Sabrina from day one was written like a naive "Ugly Betty" that we all know now has had lots and lots and lots of sex! Sabrina was written like a 21 year old and we now know she's 27. Patrick kissing Sabrina in her Disney fairy Princess outfit was pervy.

We all know that Danni is 21 or 22, and the scenes between her and Arturo were that of a young woman about to be seduced by a much older and man. Victor is gone, and Danni's relationship with Todd is more about him paying the bills.

We used to see Liz and Patrick talking all of the time.

Natalie is way too old to be hanging out with 21 year old Destiny, and needs a friend her age.

Rama and David were smoking hot in their kissing scenes at Shelter.

Uh Luke interupts just as much as everyone else, he also edits the podcast, so that ends up on the cutting room floor. LOL

OMG! I can’t believe the tap-dancing that Jamey is doing to protect his beloved Brooke Logan a.k.a. Queen Slut of the Valley. REALLY? I love Erica Kane, Lord knows I do, but I will be the first to admit that Erica Kane could be a downright self-centered man stealing ho who deserved some of the fierce payback she got in her 40+ years in Pine Valley.

Now in the fairness of full disclosure, I don’t watch B&B on the regular but I know enough about the show and what’s going on to know that Katie did not in any way give permission for her husband and her perpetually slutty sister to walk it like a dog. I mean…speechless!

Luke, I love your Golden Corral reference. ROTFLMAO!!!

Gotta agree with everyone here about nuAbby--I think Melissa Ordway is doing a great job. Yeah, the character is a little different as played by her, but this is a mature Abby, not the clownish--although highly entertaining--girl that Marcy Rylan played for most of her time on the show(and don't take that the wrong way, I LOVED Marcy and thought letting her escape to GH was the biggest mistake this regime has made so far outside of bringing on Steve Burton, but that character was pretty cartoonish most of the time). Personally, I'd love to see her on contract and given a strong story(though not happy about the inevitable Tyler pairing).

Not only did Katie give Brooke and Bill permission, she was their matchmaker!

I wouldn't call nuAbby a success or failure. She's just there. She would make a great extra. Thus far, Abby is not needed.

I have to say this I'm only hearing the first part the podcast of B&B....

I will say this again and over and over until somebody at Y&R/Sony take notes. Heather Tom is a beast!!! Her acting skills are not match for her recast at Y&R.

Would somebody send Amelia Heinle Heather Tom acting real and show her this is HOW you act!!!!

Well of course I disagree with most that was said about Y&R but I'm tired of typing why this show doesn't deserve a lot of the criticism it gets, so I'mma just refrain.

B&B was really good this past week. Even though My Taylor Hayes is gone, I still watched, and found it to be actually really interesting. Heather Tom is a BEAST. Those scenes with her slamming down those pictures was something CLASSIC. When she was doing it, all I could think about was back in the good old days when the soaps had the Emmy montages...that was definitely Emmy Montage material.

Oh, and Melissa Ordway is doing wonderfully as NuAbby. And I noticed a little bump or pimple on her face today right in the spot where Ashley's mole or whatever that was is or used to be. I haven't noticed it on ED in a while so maybe it's been removed, but yeah...I noticed it on Melissa Ordway today Laughing out loud

Well, as someone who rarely agrees with Luke, I gotta say for once I actually do--I totally saw what was going on with Dani and Arturo on OLTL and thought the same exact thing Luke did. Gotta say I'm torn about it--I saw some chem between the two but the 30-YEAR age difference might be too much of a stretch, even for a soap(of course the Adam/Annie age difference was over 40 years but Annie was at least a grown woman).

@EricasBlackSon yes, you're SOOOO right. We beat the hot piss outta of each other at DC! Mel just finished punching Luke right in the chest, while Regan and I just jumped Jamey cause he took the last iced tea.

I think what makes Patrick/Sabrina so creepy is the maturity level. Sabrina comes across as a star struck middle school girl and maybe they spent too much time putting her in scenes with Emma, so I just see her as an eternal child. Plus having her prance around singing "Call Me Maybe," really tells me all I need to know about her maturity level. Sabrina seems like an 8 year old playing dress-up in her big sister's clothes and none of them fit. She's just a poorly conceived character. A half-assed attempt at a good girl. I have no interest in seeing her beige vanilla ass get any happiness. Ditto Felix.

@Wilco617, I hear you. I don't get the creepy vibe, I just get the Ugly Betty buzz from the two of them. What bothers me about the entire storyline is, Patrick dealt with LISA! He should be on his A-game with heauxs trying to hustle him. That and, Patrick was a PLAYBOY before he married Robin. I'm sure he's had his fair share of women lying about having his baby.

I think you summed up what I was trying to say about Sabrina and Patrick.

Don't agree with me often? Welcome to the dark side even if it's only for a little while!

"King Clipper" that's funny and here I thought ya'll were being mean to poor Luke.

I think this new Abby is doing a decent job, although I miss Emme Rylan in the roll. Especially since she hasn't quite locked into the role as Lulu on GH. I don't want to say she's boring, but not quite as entertaining as I come to expect from her.
Love Katie vs EVERYONE on B&B. Heather Tom just proved why she has so many emmys.
I'm interested to hear the next podcast because I want you guys thoughts on Jen Liley vs Kirsten Storms & (Farah Fath)

Lastly I suggest you guys have a contest or allow one of your readers to be a special guest on the podcast, i'm definitely up to the challenge

Well...Katie did drive Bill in Brookes arms. I 100% agree with Jamey. That doesnt mean Brooke is not a slut, she is, but in this case, it was Katie who pushed the two together, who ended her marriage (once again), only to get another heart failure and quickly take him back after that, because life is too short I guess. She made a mess of it herself. Yes, she is a doormat, but she choose to be a doormat when Bill locked her upm in that tower, when Bill lied to her about Steffy and so on. Thank god btw for the acting abbilities of this threesome. HT, KKL and DD are great.

@Jamey Giddens: What's up with Drake? I heard he has been bumped to recurring. I wish they would just let him go completely. Because then we'd have the two worst male daytime not-actors (Ron Moss included) in history who became stars of their soaps gone! Any Intel?

I don't watch B&B, but I love talk of Brooke and I am tempted to tune in now that she seems to be back to her former classic glory. The spectre of Liam, Hope, and Steffy, Liam, Hope, and Steffy keeps me away though.

B&B tried to get Eric the Actor from The Howard Stern Show, but the real stunt casting would be for Jamey to come on as a fashion blogger who moves to LA with his beau. Turns out he's a long lost Logan sibling. After an arduous week of covering the Met Ball in NYC and suffering from the H, he sends his love to watch Project Runway with Brooke and she ends up offering fries with that and winds up pregnant.

Then I want to see Jamey defend Brooke. I envision the earrings will come off and the vaseline will go on. Forget the Katie smackdown. That is when I will watch B&B.

Love your podcast I have to disagree with Luke I happen to like Patrick and Sabrina I like that the nice girl got the guy without having to scheme to get the guy I do think Patrick is dump when it comes to Dr.Britt he dealt with Lisa Niles for god sake and he doesn't realize Dr. Britt is playing him.

I think the new Abby is okay love her chemistry with Tyler but the new Kyle has to go I'm sorry he is to dull in this role if they don't want Blake Hood back recast him with John-Paul Lavoisier I thought paternity storyline kinda fall flat but the actors made it up with there peformances it would've been better at Jack birthday party or at huge event like Adam found out and decide to keep it to hisself and then blew it out of water loving Michael/Lauren/Carmine/Fen storyline I do think they should put Avery into the mix because I'm sorry like the character of Avery she just boring with Nick I do think these writers need to figure out how stay true to the characters

Loved BB Heather Tom was amazing in those scenes with Bill and Brooke but my opinion it's Katie fault to because she did push them together but Bill and Brooke didn't have to give in I think if Bill really love Katie he would've walk out that room went after Katie I think what attracted Bill to Brooke is because she didn't want to change him like Katie do I like Hope and Wyatt but you know he going to be odd man out because we all know Hope going to be with Liam I would like for Wyatt to be Thorne son not Bill and have Thorne make a play to be Ceo of the company again since Rick to much into Maya here my wishful storyline I have Karen get cancer and founds out it's untreatable and she dies and leave her shares of Bill company to Dani and have Dani and Katie team up to get control of the company and while they are getting rid of Bill they start to fall for each other imagine Crystal Chappell up against Don Diamont that will be epic

Loving Days I wasn't Ejami fan because to me he did rape her but I'm loving them now I think Ej is the only man in Sami life who don't want to change her that's the only thing I hate on soaps is you fall for the person you get them then you want to change them if you fall for the person they are then you shouldn't want to change them I like Will and Sonny but they are becoming a bit boring I do think they should have new love interests to test them instead of Adrienne butting in I do want someone to remind Adrienne who her family is and who she married into I love JJ because I was never!!!! a fan of Jennifer and Daniel still not at least he bring new life in Jennifer his scenes with Jen Lilley was amazing

General Hospital been ok but I want my Maxie and Spinelli back together already I wish they bring Georgie back to life I'll buy anything if they could make that happen Michael/Kiki/Morgan triangle is ok even though Michael only had three love interest Abby Starr and Kiki the only I like him with was Abby I wish they could bring her back somehow the only thing I didn't like this week is we finally get a Dante and Morgan scene and it wasn't even that long Sonny and Olivia are hot can't wait for Connie to be gone never like the character like the actress though I was soooooooo happy Shawn choose his job over Alexis because I can't stand Alexis hypocrisy she another character I wish someone would call her on her crap

Love seeing Kendall back on my screen with Bianca but I agree with you Jamey Kendall needs to be on this show if Alicia can't do it there are plenty of actresses that can play her and want Bianca to have a love life not just be there to comfort her daughter every five seconds I mean this Hunter kid if she really wanted to get rid of this guy she has her uncle Zach there to take care of it I love Jesse but seriously have he not learn his lessons about keeping secrets from Angie I get he trying to protect her but me he act like she can't handle the truth but Angie has to know it's weird that Cassandra was found in their home so she has to have a feeling that Jesse had something to do with it I have to admit want to see Angie and David hook up I have a question where is Cara brother Griffin

OLTL has been ok I do think they need to recast John Mcbain for Natalie because I'm not feeling her and Cutter and I have perfect actor to play him Paul Anthony Stewtart I kinda like Natalie and Destiny friendship but I wish Destiny have more of backbone when comes to Matthew I mean she did had a backbone but every since she had Drew it's like it disappeared I do agree with Luke about Dani and Arturo I do see there might be something happening there I just hope he not a bad guy even though Dani is of aged I do think it's a bit pervy but I can buy it I rather have Arturo in Natalie orbit the Matthew and Michelle thing is a bit stupid but I have to say loving Jack and his teacher Kate see why can't that happen with Bianca on AMC pick up a stranger go to hotel and do your thing wouldn't it be funny if Bianca did do that and the woman she pick up is Hunter mom maybe it explained why he keeps bullying Miranda
ps Love your podcast
