Welcome to ME!!  

Honey, you're either going to "get" me and know my heart and my intent or you're not going to "get" me at all.  If you don't, know your limitations and just back away from the keyboard after clicking the little "X" in the box on the upper right corner of your browser window, ne'er to return again. 

I used to have a long disclaimer here for the confused and manners-challenged people who don't know the difference between a "rumor" or "gossip" and an actual spoiler, but screw it.  Angry, bitter, small minded people will always talk their trash to compensate for their own 1st chakra frustrations and inadequacies. 

When you read those vicious people on the message boards, just shake your head and remember they aren't getting any play, so they're grumpy.  Pity them, then dismiss them.

Note:  Due to the large volume of e-mail he receives, Sage regrets that he is unable to personally answer each e-mail.  He wants you to know that he reads each and every one (some 2-3 times) and greatly appreciates your communication.  Please DO NOT ask Sage for further info on what is going to happen on the shows.  Any information he has that he can share will be put into his column ASAP.

(Yes, Sage is a guy... and a damned good looking one too!)

I've Got Presents For You!!

Just a few GH spoilers to get you started on the weekend!

The new spoilers for "Surfin the GH Spoilers" are up, but to elaborate a bit:

Ric's engagement to Courtney is over in a flash.  He learns of Liz's pregnancy and they are married in a quickie ceremony.

Faith shoves Liz down the stairs and she ends up losing the baby.  Ric tells her that he loves her and that they'll have another child... soon.  I'm not sure if the miscarriage is a result of the fall, but I presume it is.  My info wasn't very clear on that.  Ric blames Sonny for the loss of the baby.

Liz and Ric buy a house with a secret room in it.  Ric kidnaps Carly and keeps her in the secret room.

Emily decides that part of her "let Zander go" therapy is to hook up with Nikolas (remember, she had a crush on him when he first took up with Catherine Bell), likely in an effort to get Zander to give up on her.

Zander runs into trouble with some drug dealers and is beaten up.

Alexis' stint as Dobson continues on through the end of May.  Cameron catches on to her.

Skye continues to bond with Kristina and Ned sees how close the two of them are.  He starts to think that he might be able to get full, permanent custody of the baby if he has a wife.  Hmmmmm.

Maxie is really upset when Kyle tells her he won't take her to the prom. 

Georgie decides she wants Lucas to be her "first."

Re:  Cynthia Preston

I am completely, astutely aware that Cynthia Preston has posted a denial on her message board regarding my comments about her status on GH.  I, for one, hope that the information I received *is* inaccurate.  I am very much a CP and Faith fan and I don't think it would do anyone concerned a bit of good to recast the character. 

When I first heard the rumor, I completely dismissed it.  I heard it again, said, "Hmmm," and completely dismissed it.  I then got the info from a very, very reliable source, so I went a'huntin and two more of my sources, one of whom has NEVER steered me wrong, told me it was true.  That's when I printed it.  It's what I do and in this game, you always take a gamble, trusting the folks who have proven themselves to you over the years to give out good info.  After that, you sometimes wait for the twist, the spin that's going to be put on it.  I talked to two separate, very trusted people who were in the room when Sarah Brown erupted on new EP, Jill Farren Phelps, threw her script at her, quit the show and stormed off the set.  It's being reported... being reported... then suddenly, *it never happened.*  I talked to a dear friend of mine who was on the OLTL set when Catherine Hickland received her pink slip a few months back.  She told me that Ty Treadway was also a goner and we should look for Lindsay to hit St Anne's for a murder before long.  I went to post it (on this one, the source was fully reliable enough that I didn't confirm elsewhere) and found that it had already been posted on both TT and CH's websites, so I reported it as well.  Almost immediately, the announcements were retracted and declared a hoax.  Now, Lindsay is in St Anne's, Ty Treadway is fired and I'm worried for CH.

In the world of soap business, nothing is ever really as it seems.  After weeks of denying to her most avid supporters that she'd been contacted by GH to negotiate a return, Amber Tamblyn confessed that, OK, she HAD been contacted, she just couldn't tell anyone.  Meanwhile, the columnists who were reporting it were pronounced liars and bombarded with e-mails directing them to her many denials.  I wonder how many of those people who wrote and reamed out the columnists who reported she had been contacted bothered to write again when she finally confessed?  "Ooops, my bad, sorry!" 

Stephen Nichols was unable to report any confirmation of his return until GHH2 had announced it for a couple of weeks.  Roger Howarth's departure was announced on other sites before his fan club had the word, not to mention SoapCity breaking the news that he was going to ATWT days before anyone, including his fan club had it. 

We all take chances when we post info that comes to us.  Basically, we want to share it with you as soon as we responsibly can and misunderstandings and spin doctoring can often get things turned very upside down.  You heard it from Soapboy, you heard it veiled from The Wub Queen, ("One blonde leaves in disgrace; one blonde gets a new face.").  I promise you, we didn't get together, through back martinis and chortle about how we were going to fire Cynthia Preston on the internet. 

I'm not going to say anything more on the CP story.  I'm going to give it a few weeks, see what manifests and hope like hell that all we see in CP in a kick ass story.

In this business, sometimes you get the bear and sometimes, the bear gets you.  Anyone who doesn't understand that and continues to believe that all we do is push for hits and further our own agendas can eat me like a frickin breakfast danish.  We do the best we can, report as truthfully as we can and still wear tread marks from a few hundred pairs of golf shoes.  Why do we keep doing it?  Easy.  For the cool people. You know who you are.

Not "Cat Sing"

but "casting."

It's true.  Didn't want to announce it until I had good confirmation, but Cynthia Preston HAS been let go from GH very suddenly, allegedly from some on set drama.  The role is being recast.

RUMORS say that Linda Dano has been released from OLTL due to lack of story. 

AMC has been auditioning new, hot Latin guys and rumors say it's for a new Carlos.

As I reported yesterday, a witness got a look at the new Kevin Buchanan on OLTL and says he's really, really hot. 

I does not appear likely that casting will need to find a baby actor to portray Little Liric.  There is a strong indication that baby doesn't make it.

Talked to a friend of mine on the GH set who actually laughed out loud when I asked about Brian Frons' statement saying he had long term plans for Journey.   Says my pal, "I guess that depends on what you consider long term to be" and suggested I tell all of you NOT to get invested in ANY couples at this point.  Evidently, a LOT of ideas are being discussed about dramatic relationship changes.  His words, "believe NOTHING and take NOTHING for granted because as soon as you think you've got it figured out, it's going to change."  He also said that it hasn't yet been decided if they are going to put Liz with Jason or with NuLucky and both are getting heavy consideration and debate.

When I asked why Constance Towers has not yet been contacted to return as Helena, he said it is his understanding that they want to go for a big impact later on, first letting Stefan come around and collect his due spotlight, then bringing on Helena once the dust has settled from his return.  On the side, he also said he felt it might be used as a bargaining tactic to get Stephen Nichols to re-sign after his current short term contract is over, just as they used the return of Tyler Christopher to sweeten the deal this time.

That's what I've got for now!

See?  This is what happens when you put men in charge of women stuff.  It started with birth.  We used to have the midwives of the village who would come to the laboring woman's house, nurture her through the birth with wisdom and herbs and following the process of nature.  Then the men had to take it over and before you knew it, we had torture devices like speculums and forceps and scissors involved and women were laid out on a cold, sterile table, strapped down like a lunatic and berated when they couldn't push out a kid bigger than a bowling ball uphill.  After the doctor dragged the kid out with a pair of salad tongs freshly pulled from the freezer compartment of their beer fridge, the poor mommy was trussed up like a Christmas turkey while her baby was taken away from Mama's warm boobie to a cold, desolate baby aquarium in a sea of other little plexiglass cubicles, preparing him for life as a data entry person.  THAT's what happens when men get involved in a Woman's World.

The same thing has happened to soaps.  C'mon now.  How many straight guys do you know who will freely admit to being soap addicted, hang out on the message boards and staunchly battle other men over who is the better Carly, Tamara Braun or Sarah Brown?  Can't you see them now, calling one another out in the street, clashing their giant, sweaty, beer bloated bellies against one another, challenging one another with, "What up?  WHAT UP???" over whether or not Anna and David's baby should be crucified and burned at a stake because *gasp* Tad and Dixie's baby exploded on a plane?  Isn't there a reason why we have "sports bars" where people can congregate, eat lots of wonderful greasy foods and drink huge amounts of alcohol while raising their voices together in one giant beast of togetherness for their favorite football team rather than gathering together in masses to eat, drink and watch Sonny's limo explode?  How many men do you know who couldn't stop crying at work because Brenda drove off a cliff?  Although there are certainly a number of men who are devoted soap fans, many of whom are hetero to the maxio, we always know that we are here in this world of soaps on a Woman Grant and that we are a rare bird indeed.

Yes without a doubt, soaps are a Woman's World.  Always have been and always will be.  So why the complete hell do we have Brian Frons, an NRA card packing testosterone having sack swinging Mrs Frons humpin GRANDPA MAN, followed closely by a jockey shorts wearing, Rolex needing, Armani draping, prostate monkey like Frank Valentini (who I have STILL NOT forgiven for firing my BELOVED BARBARA NIVEN) and accompanied by a Buck knife totin, pick up driving, toilet seat dysfunctional, hairy legged Y chromosome by the name of Josh Griffith making the decisions about One Life to Live?  Jean Dadario Burke (EP for AMC), Julie Hanan Carruthers (EP for PC) and Jill Farren Phelps (EP for GH) are the only women out of NINE primary positions in ABC Daytime Dramas, and that doesn't even include the co-Head Writer situation on GH and PC, so actually, 11 primary positions.  Sure, Megan McTavish is coming on board with AMC, but we can't really say that like it's a good thing. 

Case in point.  Getting away from my very obvious anger at their dumbass casting blunder of letting my Barbara get away, what the hell are they thinking by not keeping this gorgeous face


on my screen???  "Whaaaa... we can't fink of nuffin for him to dooooo."  Adiong????  What do you NEED him to do?  I can think of a few hundred things for him to do, all with his shirt off!  In case they haven't noticed, there are a LOT of really hot dames around Llanview who could seriously use some sexin' up and Dr Troy is just the man to do it!  He and Dorian would make a STEAMIN' cuppa couple.  Put him with ROXY and let her get his hair really, really messy!!  I'd LOVE to see a hot love scene between him and Natalie and watch the fallout on the age difference.  He BLOWS AWAY either of the Vega boys in oozing sexuality!  Hell, let's go the other way and let him send some smoke out of Viki's ears!  I'm betting he could make all 27 of her personalities curl up and smoke a cigarette and ask if there are any cornflakes left.  Bring on that story where we find out he really IS Colin and Colin NEVER had a twin brother and REALLY put one over on the idiots in Llanview.  Let him pick up the pieces of Gabrielle's broken heart after Bo starts ignoring her in favor of his newfound bouncing baby boy!  Cassie is coming to town and honey, she's goes weak in the knees for a hot brunette with a flashy smile, so let him play with the toys in her attic for a while.  Good lord, what CAN'T we do with Colin.

Idiots.  Idiots, Idiots, Idiots.

YET, we still have Jenn Rappaport, opening her vile mouth like a grouper fish out of water to every man with a tongue who gets within radar range of her flaming, hyperactive ovaries.  We get to watch high school drama class theatrics flail all over the screen as we stop in stunned silence, realizing we have no clue what she just said because we were too busy watching her eyes steal over to the teleprompter or Eb the Cue Card Guy or whoever is feeding her the lines of the day. 

YET, we still have Antonio, shooting up the place like he's the King of the 7-11 Arcade, snorting and grimacing musically to Springsteen songs only he can hear, serving no earthly purpose on the show other than to be Hooch to Bo Buchanan's Turner.  When he takes off his shirt (usually in some male ritual exercise scene - yawn), his tattoos give us more reading material than the back end of a Plymouth Voyager in a school parking lot. 

Still, Ty goes and they stay.  Men.  They just got no business in Woman's World.

AMC has definitely fallen victim to Men Mentality. Hell, any more, if Tad, David or Jackson doesn't do it for you, you'd might as well give it up.  Scalia, the last of the hunks, has disappeared and David is never on any more unless a scene where he demeans his wife is required.  I'm sorry, but wasn't Leora about to have some pretty critical surgery?  Guess we had to use all the hospital scenes for Jackson's miraculous recovery from "Deathbed confession" to grapefruit and croissants at the Valley Inn in 2 days flat.  Forget David's fantastic serum.  They need to market whatever healing wonder they used on his gunshot wound.   I'll bet if they took some of whatever that was and put it in some Fusion liquid makeup , you'd never get another wrinkle or zit as long as you lived.

General Hospital, of course (albeit getting better), still take the prize for the most man-destroyed soap, which leads me to believe that Jill Farren Phelps may just be a guy in drag, maybe some kickboxing, Ultimate Fighter champion who has simply threatened to kick the total ass of anyone who fires him.  How in the world is it that the glorious Jane Elliot and the incredible Constance Towers are NOT on the show, yet Summer has a contract???  How is it possible that the ever vengeful-for-crimes-unknown powers that be continue to persecute poor Nancy Lee Grahn with humiliating material for Alexis to plunder through, including the latest of dressing up as a man to work as a butler for Edward in order to be closer to Kristina.  We know this cannot possibly end well.  She should be tonguing Cameron, coaxing Gia through her law studies and mentoring Zander, working toward an emotional father-son reunion while the time goes clickety clickety click toward another custody hearing. 

Is ANYone working at L&B any more or has it folded?  Is the Nurses Ball just a fond memory of all but the last two?  Who the hell has been feeding Rosie?  Is LuLu still living?  Does GH have a Head Nurse (if you go with the truest sense of the word, Bobbie and her dirty knees would be a shoe in) now that Audrey is gone away?  Are Liz, Carly and Faith all really going to be pregnant at the same time?  Does anyone miss Jacob Young?  Isn't Tyler Christopher cuddlier than when he left?  WE WANT TO KNOW THESE THINGS??

So enough of my bitching and on to the gossip:


Saw that kid who played Gabriel, the dog food boy, in a 1-800-Collect (one with the angel) commercial.  God, I hope they ditched Carrottop.  Also caught Adrian Turner (Adrian Devane) on a commercial for Acuview contact lenses.  Nice! 

Jakeass is coming back for some godawful reason on June 9th.  Hopefully, Mia will knock his head off.  He's not there for long, so don't get in an uproar.

Olga Sosnovska, the cheese in Bianca's whiz, has signed a contract, so I doubt she's going to have trouble weathering the Michael Cambias brouhaha.  With Alexander Cambais coming on the scene, this should all be coming to a head soon with the C boys finding their way out of the Valley on a rail.  Look for Erica to go woman shopping for Binks in hopes of cheering her up after the Lena break down.  Eve Plumb will still be around in this surprisingly bad turn as June Landau.


He's down, but he's not out.  Mitch Laurence will be around to terrorize Llanview for a while longer.  His little brother, Walker is coming to town and if Roscoe Born, who plays Mitch, has his way, there won't be any redemption of his character.  He likes it hard and likes it mean.  (so do we!)

No final date on Ty Treadway though, but sharp minds have begun to speculate on what we told you months ago.  An insider shared with us before the "hoax" hoax was issued that yes, plans are in effect for both Ty Treadway and Cahterine Hickland to leave.  The same person told us months ago that Lindsay would end up in St Anne's and there she is!  After word of their dismissal was posted on both Catherine Hickland and Ty Treadway's official sites, a very prompt retraction was issued saying it was a hoax.  Was it?  Personally, I don't think so and it would not surprise me at all to see Lindsay leaving town, one way or another very soon.  It would also not surprise me to see CH heading to Pine Valley, as Lindsay or someone else.  It seems many were very please with the Fan February pairing of CH with real life husband, Michael E. Knight (Tad, AMC) and would like to give it a go on AMC. 

The casting calls are out for several on OLTL:  C J Roberts (followed closely by rumors of a return for his mommy, Tina), Josh (who is to be a corporate raider type for Blair), River (Cassie and Andrew's son) and Kevin Buchanan (Viki's other son).  Watch for new faces as Adrianna, a friend of the Vega family from Puerto Rico (15 or so years old) shows up (love interest for River, who is SORAS'd into a teen) and Asa hires a new butler to make a point to Nigel.  Don't worry.  Nigel isn't leaving.

Clint Ritchie returns as Clint Buchanan on May 22, acting on Natalie's request that he come help heal  his wounded family.



True to Freudian dictate, Nikolas likes his wimmin bitchy (just like Gramma back on the island... awwww) and he continues the tradition of Katherine and Gia (oh come on, she was the bitchiest thing around when they first met and when she got nice, he dumped her) with his new love, to be announced.  Evidently, she has quite a spin for Port Charles.

No, Bob Guza is not moving to DOOL.

I'm hearing Cynthia Preston is staying, Summer is going.  That's also what The Wub Queen is saying.  Maurice Benard recently said that CP has a big story line coming up.

Liz and Ric do get married and give happiness a shot with both of them wanting the baby (she finds out on 5/15).  That only lasts until Faith pushes Liz down the stairs and Ric blames Sonny for it.  No word on whether the baby makes it.

Maxie is so despondent after being boinked on live streaming feed that she decides to drown her sorrows in the drug, ecstasy.  Personally, I think she's entitled.  She got screwed in more ways than one.

Trevor, Ric's father = bombing of Sonny's limo (5/20)

Alcazar's twin = drug ring in Port Charles

Look for a redux of Monica and Paige's Breast Cancer Adventure as (in a parallel to Monica going to the Arizona Wellness Clinic) Emily goes to a real cancer support group to deal with her disease.  By all accounts, it gets quite graphic.

With that, my darlings, I'm outta here.

Happy week to ya!
