DC #783: Cookie Never Tasted So Sweet

On today's Daytime Confidential podcast Luke Kerr, Jamey Giddens, Jillian Bowe, Mike Jubinville and Sara Bibel are back for the first episode of 2015.


The Bold and the Beautiful kicks off 2015 with a bang, as Rick and Maya take over Forrester Creations. From Caroline’s heartbreak, to the horrified reactions to Stephanie Forrester's portrait being replaced with Maya’s, it was an epic week on B&B. Is Maya the black Erica Kane?

Will plays catch with Paul’s balls on Days of Our Lives. Four out of five Daytime Confidential co-hosts agree, it’s the only good storyline on DAYS. Mike defends DAYS, inspiring a discussion about what makes good and bad soaps. Nicole and Daniel have sex. Theresa and Melanie face off over Brady.

Kristen Alderson is leaving General Hospital. The ABC soap replaced Rob Derringer as Agent Kyle with As the World Turns grad Grayson McCouch.

Jillian isn’t liking Sonny being in prison, but Luke and Sara are loving it. Should GH have Morgan take over the mob while Sonny is in prison and pit Sonny’s mob prince against his brother Michael, the Quartermaine corporate heir?

Does GH need to cut characters and storylines? Jamey believes at least 10 characters need to go.

The Young and the Restless favorite Beau Kazer passed away at the age of 63. Nikki never needed to prove she was gainfully employed during her custody battles, so why should Sharon?

Is Jill Farren Phelps transforming Y&R into a working class soap, instead of a story about the glamorous lives of the rich and wanton?

The Pop Confidential podcast returns next week, but the gang didn’t want to pass up the opportunity to dish about Empire’s epic premiere on Fox. From Cookie's (Taraji P. Henson) fabulous introduction, to the brothers' rivalrym they discuss it all.
