Lord have mercy, will some PR rep tell these executives to close their yaps? They make it too easy for me! Last year you had Barbara Bloom telling Guiding Light fans who balked at her new production mandates to "lighten up", Chris Goutman preaching about how soaps should be cut to three-days-a-week, Ken Corday calling Deidre Freakin' Hall, a "spoke on a wheel" and now All My Children head writer Chuck Pratt is telling TV Guide Magazine's Michael Logan that the cast of his soap had better "watch out" for Jamie Luner. Say what, say huh?
Luner was brought to AMC by the soap’s head writer Chuck Pratt, who wrote and produced several seasons of Melrose. “Back then, Jamie’s nickname on the set was ‘Turbo’ because she’s such a ball of energy and you can throw anything at her,” says Pratt. “I warned her that joining AMC would be daunting and crazy. What with 30 actors and all the behind-the-scenes stuff, it’s like high school. But they’re the ones who have to watch out. Jamie’s not an ass kisser. She’s very straightforward. She’s going to shake up the cast in a very good way.
Heck Chuckie, you do realize the daytime landscape and its fans are pretty war-ravaged after years of fans having to endure the losses of our beloved vets, many on the show you're scripting, i.e Julia Barr, Cady McClain, Marcy Walker (Yeah she's found Jesus, but she was booted off AMC, don't re-write history Julie), etc. So...yeah, maybe you might not want to set poor Jamie Luner up for failure by popping off at the mouth? I don't know about y'all, but I smell another "Real Greenlee".
