DC #320: ABC A Madonna or a Whore

On today's ABC episode of Daytime Confidential Luke, Tina, Jamey and TV Guide Canada's Nelson Branco discuss ABC's focus groups, PSA's and who exactly is to blame for the re-rape of One Life to Live's Marty by Todd.

General Hospital's ratings plummeted and we discuss whether or not the show needs more or less mob to help it improve in its ratings.

Branco shares the latest about Cameron Mathison's contract status and how the relationship of All My Children's gay couple Bianca and Reese is being written. All this and much more on today's show.

Reege Sticking With "Live" Through 2011


It looks like Cameron Mathison will have to wait a while longer to possibly replace Regis Philbin on Disney's long-running syndicated talker Live With Regis and Kelly. According to the New York Daily News, the man who singlehandedly made me fall in love with New York through a television screen (okay, before Darren Starr and Michael Patrick King) just by talking about his nights on the town, is gonna keep shaking his head at cutie Kelly Ripa's shenanigans through 2011. For more on Mathison's career plans, check out last week's edition of The Suds Report.

Are Ryan and Greenlee soulmates?


I promised myself I would say nothing more about this subject, but after posting the spoilers and watching last week's episodes, I cannot keep my mouth shut anymore! So Danielle is on a rant! Look out!

Greenlee and Ryan, Part 5, WHY! WHY!   This couple has been forced on this fan from day one.  Greenlee 'wanted' (and I use that term loosely) Ryan only for herself because she was a horny teenager who was dumped by Scott Chandler, until she met her soulmate Leo.  She tortured Gillian and any other woman who came across Ryan for kicks!  Greenlee never loved Ryan the way Gillian did and she never loved anyone the way she loved Leo. The couple got together after Leo's death only because Leo and Ryan were best friends. Yeah right.   Greenlee and Ryan are about has good to watch as a 24 hour marathon of Flavor of Love

In my real life, I work for a law firm where I deal with workers' compensation and often I have client's who 'shop for whore doctors'. Meaning the client wants a doctor who will do what they want, will give them the medicine they don't need, the doctor is a pill pusher and the client becomes an addict.   Greenlee is Ryan's whore doctor as far as this blogger is concerned.
