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.

The Fans of Alicia Leigh Willis aren't satisfied by the post below and did not read my True Confessions column below.  Did you know that I have an "agenda" to get rid of her?  :)  Shows how much people pay attention, I guess.  So in order to reduce the amount of clutter in my inbox, let's spell it out. 

Willis' contract does NOT expire in June as I heard from 4 different sources before printing it.  According to her official website, Willis was hired on in December 2001 with a four year contract, so I'm told repeatedly that would be in effect until December 2005.  I have been duly smited for spreading "vicious rumors," so all of you who are beating me for my agenda to destroy Ms Willis and her career may cease and desist. 

My personal stand is this:  Funny as it might seem, a contract does not a commitment make, at least from the position that we can see.  Contracts are riddled with outs and disclaimers and buy outs and avenues and excuses and nearly always work for the benefit and machinations of the powers that be, particularly initial contracts.  Anyone remember the well contracted Angel Boris?  I didn't think so.  Are we missing our good friend, Barbara Niven, Liz from OLTL, who was abruptly fired WITH a long-term contract in place?  I think we are.

I reported a rumor that came from what appears to be a good source and again, it's a rumor.  I didn't make it up (If I were making up rumors for this page, they'd be a hell of a lot better than the crap that is really going around) and I didn't report it to address any particular agenda or elicit any particular reaction beyond keeping you guys informed.  Inevitably, when a rumor is printed, the pros are going to rejoice and the cons are going to have their vitals in a twist.  No offense was intended toward Ms Willis, her family, her personal friends, her dedicated fans, any pets she may have or the character of Courtney. 

For the record, I have been checking around, and the rumor isn't unfounded.  A number of changes are being planned for the GH canvas in the next few months and whether it happens or not, this is one that is being considered.  That's all I've got to say about that.

I've gotten a number of e-mails critiquing the RUMORS I posted before and correcting me on Alicia Leigh Willis' contract status, saying she has years to go.  I'm holding out through summer and seeing what happens because I don't know what to believe any more.  Baby, I'm just tellin you what I heard because dat's my job.  I'm still hearing (and I double checked a couple of other places after the outcry started, well, crying) and I'm hearing from elsewhere that Liason has a green light (although a long swing to get there, it's likely by November sweeps) and that ALW may not be sticking around.  As I said, it's not agenda, it's not stirring the pot, it's just repeating the info I'm still getting. 


The off topic post is finished, but it's not anything to bark about.  There just isn't much going on.  Click here to get it.

Could it be true??  I'm reporting this as RUMOR because the info is slightly more second hand than I'm used to, but there is a strong indication that Liason may not be dead... but Courtney just might be!

Again, this is purely rumor, but strong rumor I've heard.  We reported some time back that Guza had gotten the order to "End it" in regard to Journey and Steve Burton really called a marriage or engagement "the kiss of death" for a relationship and maintains that Jason still loves Elizabeth. 

Since Alicia Leigh Willis' contract is up in June, there is talk of the character being killed off in some spectacular way just after a big wedding, leaving the way clear for Elizabeth to help Jason through his grief, with or without the Lansing bun in the oven.  If Liz does lose the baby as rumored and Faith IS pregnant with Ric's baby as well, that could result in a Faith and Ric pairing as well.

Of course, the only real indicator that Liason might be on the way back again was clear when Jason ordered Elizabeth out of the Corinthos penthouse when she had confronted Carly about the rape.  That kind of venom is reserved only for potential romantic partners!

Liz and Ric DO tie the knot, but not for long.

So yeah, it's just a rumor, but wow.  It's a strong one!

On the other side of town, remember it was mentioned that Edward would be trying out new butlers?  The "new butler" will be Alexis in disguise (my stomach is rolling, but I'll reserve opinion).  A little bird tells me that she looks good in the suit, but the voice ain't right. 

Yep, it's on for Skye and Ned, at least as a start.  :)

Skye decides she wants to be a mama!

Both Alcazar's brother and Ric's father cause problems in Port Charles.

Maxie sees herself on the internet.  Later, she passes out.  Sick or pregnant?

Summer seems to be a goner by all accounts!

And that's all I've got for now!

Time to Curl Up...

...around the ol' mouse and yak about the soaps again.  Off topic is coming for those of you who want an update, but for now, we're dishing the soaps, honey. 

I took a trip up to see Katrina this weekend and pick up a wonderful gift my sweetie, Ves, sent to me, a magnificent batch of Ginsing tea (YUM!).  It's just the best stuff in the world, but lord knows Sage needs NOT an aphrodisiac.  It's a wonder I don't eat the paint off the walls as it is, but it's yummy enough that I'm more than willing to take the risk.  Chile, before long, the fish are going to stop swimming when I come into the room.

While I was there, Katrina and I (NEVER, I mean NEVER call her "Kat."  Most folks only make that mistake ONCE, after which their bodily fluids take about 6-7 hours to thaw out again.  She even made this to remind us that it's well, just not an option) had a few minutes to consider all of the changes that have been taking place on GH and we have come to the monumental decision that while certainly all shows will rise and fall in quality (anyone who has watched for any length of time knows that GH and OLTL have always vied for best and worst positions amongst themselves), GH is most likely going to stick with this recent trend of delivering the goods.  Personally, I think someone from on ABC Mount Olympus yelled down to Frons to get his shiatsu together and start cranking out some quality shows lest the precariously perched axe over his noggin support take a tumble south.  Something happened because we went from reverse to full steam ahead in .05 seconds.  I think Jane Elliot will forever more be heralded as the harbinger of incredible things, having done a fine job of ushering "must see TV" back to weekday afternoons. 

Many have written worried that her exit will bring the focus back squarely on the Fab Four and my answer to that is well sort of.  Of course, we have to still work that story and really, it's a good story, we were just inundated with it to the point of drowning.   It's like dietary fiber, really.  You should have some in your diet every day.  If you miss a day, it won't kill ya, but if you eat nothing BUT that, you'll end up sitting in a rather putrid mess with a bellyache.  As a compliment to the other stories that are going on, the whole Jason-Courtney-Carly-Sonny, with a subset of Faith-Ric-Liz, fits in very nicely and provides a different shade of darkness to the landscape that gives Head Writer, Bob Guza, his requisite eternal hard on.  You've got to say one thing for Bob.  He hasn't blown anything up in a long, long time and that's some incredible creative constraint on his part.  Now that we have a lush garden of stories growing with the Quartermaines, extending out to Skye and Ned and easing into Alexis and Cameron and Zander and Gia ByProxy (her new name is Gia ByProxy because she's never had her own story, just other people's stories ByProxy), I think we can expect that it's safe to count on a more balanced scale at GH.  Throw into the mix that the directive from ABC gods has been handed down to push the young love and we've got not only Maxie and Georgie's pubescent angst, but the lovable and amiable "WTF???" of Mac trying once again to pinball his way around the bumpers of Teen Girl Hysteria & Madness. 

Expect that there will be a massive romantic upheaval and the Call to Romantic Arms has been issued and suddenly Port Charles is 2am at a singles bar with the eyes of the unattached frantically searching out the crowds for eye contact with any pulse-carrying potential of the opposite gender.  Nikolas is going to get lovey.  AJ is going to get lovey.  Skye is going to get lovey.  Ned is going to get lovey.  Everyone else may well begin a vibrant game of musical beds as ties are broken and formed, but one thing you can count on is that Love is definitely returning to the Afternoon.

With all that lovey getting going around, Ingo is bowing out to take a vacation and we'll see Jax going off on some venture or another, no doubt checking up on Brenda in Europe or some such.  No love for the Aussie for a while, as per Ingo's request. 

Of course, the boards are all abuzz with viable candidates for Count Stefan's bed, ranging from Faith (Mommie Dearest, redux!) to Skye to Bobbie (again) to a Laura recast.  As the year that Jonathan Frakes, aka Commander Riker, was spending in London filming "Thunderbirds," family in tow, comes to a close, tongues are wagging like metronomes that his wife, Genie Francis, might resurface as Laura.  I can tell ya at this point, there's no indication of that happening.  Laura recast?  Maybe, also not likely.  She's still very much in the story as it's likely they are going to fly with Stefan having a strong hand in how Nikolas has been handling Laura's care (possibly even returning due to Luke's persistent meddling in the situation) and being an ongoing presence in her care.  There are also strong indicators that Constance Towers will be returning as Helena.  Stephen Nichols begins taping as Stefan on May 12, his first tape day being pushed out a week by GH.  He answered fan questions on his message forum on stephennichols.net the end of last month and you can read his replies here.  Nothing much divulged under threat of death from ABC.

Weird all of the baby rumors going around.  Writers classically HATE writing for and around babies and children and most specifically, Bob Guza has been crowned the King Herod of ABC Daytime for all of the babies he's prevented from coming into this world or hanging in it for long after birth.  We already have Baby Kristina in the loop, followed closely by the newcoming Corinthos bundle of joy.  Now rumors have pegged not one, but TWO Ric Lansing offsprings coming along, from Faith and from Liz.  I scoffed at the Faith rumor, but at a recent fan event, Maurice Benard denied that Cynthia Preston (Faith) would be killed off as rumored, stating that a big storyline was in the works for her.  Could it be?  What in the world would motherhood do to Faith?  Could placental blood saturation and circulation occur in an a cold-blooded mammal whose blood is so cold she bleeds it out a door in her chest in chunks?  If the average woman gets bitchy and demanding in pregnancy, would Faith become complacent and cuddly? 

Speaking of babies, I have to give GH the award for the most overlooked moment for the scene where AJ caught Carly as she was about to tumble down the Miscarriage Staircase to certain doom.  More should have been made of that and that's all there is to it. 

A friend told me on the way off the cuff that GH is kicking it's own ass around the tree belatedly for letting Kristina Wagner get away and is looking to bring back Felicia in some way, shape or form. 

Speaking of bringing back, the other shows are working hard on some returns, both good and bad.


Clint will be back for a few episodes beginning on May 22.  Clint Ritchie popped in for Fan February and plans were laid for a visit from the Buchanan sub-patriarch.  All has not been smooth sailing behind the scenes as OLTL vets return and settle into their established roles while newer faces try to figure out what all the hoopla is about.  Dallas won't be joining Clint this time (played by, Loyita Chapel, the real life spouse of another Bunchanan Boy's alter ego, Bob Woods, who also filled the role of "Blaize Buchanan" in the 1888 story where Clint was transported back in time by a conk on the head), it seems.  It's not likely that Ritchie will entertain the idea of a permanent return to OLTL.  His pal, Executive Producer Frank Valentini, lured him back from a temp bit, but from what I hear, Ritchie is still happy retired at the Happy Horse Ranch near Grass Valley, California with a menagerie of animals under his care.

Viki's other husband may be returning, but could look a little different when he comes out of that coma.  With Mark Derwin set for another season of "Life With Bonnie," again we're hearing stirrings of a recast for Ben.

Rumors are still flying about David Fumero leaving the show, but not likely with a dramatic exit for his character, Cris Vega.  If both ABC and Fumero want to keep options open, you can guess that he's going to slink away to art school or maybe even be sent away in a twisted way, like this heist blowing up in his face.  Death at the hands of Mitch Laurence?  Not likely.  Delicious sounding, but not likely.

Dorian takes a little nip to the wing when Mitch's boy, Johnson, shoots her, but don't worry.  It takes more than a little piece of steel hurtling at her at a jillion miles an our to muss our diva's hair.

Both Gannon boys are likely to be picking up a little action in the chicky department soon.  Lord knows Hank's seriously backed up and needing some attention.

As Mysterio lets the cat out of the bag about the hypnotism of Roxy and Nigel motivating their passion (and Renee??), one would think their romance would be ended.  But is it?  Asa brings another butler in the mix to muddy the waters a bit, but don't worry, Peter Bartlett who plays Nigel Bartholomew Smythe isn't going anywhere.  On the contrary, he'll still be showing up quite a bit as Foxy Roxy gets her hair salon off the ground and things take off in other areas as well.  Plus, he's not smoking!

Kudos go out to Soapboy from Soaptown USA for snaring the scoop far before anyone else about the ticking down of the tenure for co-Head Writers, Gorgon Rayfield and Anna Cascio on AMC.  You could have smashed me into the plaster with a feather when it was announced that Megan McTavish would be replacing them out gradually, making me shudder and being to mutter the names "Kit Fisher" and "Raquel Dion" fitfully before sitting bolt upright in a dank sweat of fear in the night. 

Mark your calendars for Thursday, May 8th, because that will be the last you'll see of handsome Jack Scalia on AMC.  Sadly shaking my head that a cool actor like this blew onto the screen to be little more than another bloodied body on the pile of Erica trash.  What a shame.

There are strong rumors of a Leo recast. 

Additionally, AMC is casting for a Latino Sex Machine, tentatively called "Pablo" who will be a recurring character, possibly moving into a contract role.  How nice it would be if Simone finally found a place to put all that energy that's been flying all over the place.

And with that, my darlings, Sage is ready to smack the proverbial sack around for a bit.  As I said, an off topic column will be coming soon, plus, I'll keep you posted of any vital news that comes along.

Don't forget that if you enjoyed the prime time show "Miracles," starring ex-Gia, Marissa Ramirez, you can learn about supporting its return by clicking on the banner under "Sage's Profile" in the upper left links.
