Daytime Confidential

On today’s Daytime Confidential podcast Luke Kerr, Jamey Giddens, Jillian Bowe, Sara Bibel and Melodie Aikels dish the latest The Bold and the Beautiful, Days of Our Lives, General Hospital and The Young and the Restless headlines and storylines, including:

Rick and Maya’s story comes full circle on The Bold and the Beautiful, as he professes his love for her again. He also gives up control of Forrester Creations for the transgender woman he loves. B&B casts Maya’s parents. Why wasn’t Brooke more involved in the power struggle at Forrester Creations? After months of brilliant shows, should fans be concerned B&B is doing a Ivy/Liam/Steffy/Wyatt quadrangle?

The DC gang reacts to Paige finding out the truth about Eve and JJ. Is it time for Days of Our Lives to send Eve in another storyline direction? Why does DAYS continue to write Will as such a loathsome character? If  the soap is trying to make us love to hate Will, the strategy has failed. Melanie gives up Brady so he can be with his child.

Is it time for a General Hospital intervention? After the many masks of Faison and the Luke/Fluke storyline why did the ABC soap decide to tell another doppelganger storyline by having Daytime Emmy-winning actress Maura West return as Denise DeMuccio? Ron Carlivati has always been good at balancing comedy and drama, but has the silliness gone too far? The DC gang shares its First Impressions of Robert Palmer Watkins as Dillon Quartermaine. Luke’s proposal to Tracy was good character driven drama, but some of the DC gang felt the reunion fell flat after everything Luke did to Tracy. Anna and Sloane have sex.

Jamey Giddens spills tea about upcoming storyline spoilers and behind-the-scenes gossip at The Young and the Restless. From Avery’s upcoming rape to Ashley Abbott having an aneurism, what he teases confounds his co-hosts. Why is Michael pushing for Lauren to hook up with Cane?
