Regan Checking In & Some General Hospital Scoop Too!

Hey DC’ers! I’ve missed you all but I’ve also missed a ton of Daytime TV and have been playing catch up all weekend. Since I have a head start on a lot of the General Hospital storylines, I’ve been focusing on catching up with the peeps in Llanview and I am not disappointed! One Life to Live is on fire and I’m loving every minute of it.

The JaSam fans got their wish, that episode got the delete off my DVR. I’m happy for their fans as you all know I love you despite your pairing affiliation but I’m still recovering and I was afraid that episode would set me back. Just kidding! Even with my advanced knowledge of most of what’s happening in Port Chuckles, I still may have missed something so when I start dishing a little, I may cover some things that have already hit the screen.

As of this writing, The 36th Annual Daytime Emmy Awards concluded a few hours ago on The CW and I am awash in mixed emotions after live Twittering the event. I wanted to put down these feelings while they are still fresh but I promise to keep these ruminations brief.

Though one could detect a teeny bit of the jitters at various times, they were a class act all the way. I also must give praise to DC's Melodie Aikels, who did a bang up job offering live blog commentary during the pre-show & ceremony. READ MORE
