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. May you have happiness all of your days. If you enjoy what I do, then pull up a chaise by the pool and stay a while. If that's the case, you're the very person I'm writing this column for anyway. I don't write to please the masses or kiss anyone's ass. Everything you read here will be from my heart, off my cuff and dead on honest. If you want a good read designed to offend no one, go to ABC.com because they are great at what they do. If you want to hear what I really think about soaps, life, etc, then WELCOME! This is an opinion column filled with gossip and rumors and, well, my opinion. It may not agree with yours and I'm good with that. *Please also note that this is NOT a spoiler or "exclusive info" site...it's a GOSSIP page and what we are discussing might be a RUMOR or a SPOILER, but isn't guaranteed to be what hits the screen. I'm NOT in the business of or interested in breaking the exclusives.* I suggest that if you want to read on, you make peace with that as well and leave your weapons with my Marshall, Lenore, before you enter town. You'll get them back when you leave. Believe me, you'll need them for some sites on the net and I don't want my loveys to go unarmed into war!

I'm totally shell shocked!! It
seems like forever since I was here with you!
Since turning into EOS manager, Iíve had a real challenge to make
time for site work, visiting my Ho's and sweeties on the message boards,
taking care of mom, harvesting the herbs and usual house stuff, but Iím
depending on this week to find my stride.
No wonder Katrina was batshit half the time with all she had going
on in addition to running the site! I
canít imagine doing it while raising a whole family and taking care of a
spiritual group and writing 7 columns as week!
I definitely have a newfound respect for her!
to the contributions of a few generous souls, we have met our financial
obligations for the site for this month!
Thanks to all who set a buck or two our way!
Weíre going to keep on keeping on for as many more months as we
can make payments between me, Katrina and the fans!
We are so grateful for all of the folks who cared enough to right
in and suggest the free sites to us, but unfortunately, our bandwidth is
such that we exceed the allotted traffic for the free sites and get into
the zone where they charge out the yin yang for hosting our site and since
we canít put pop ups on the free sites, we end up losing money.
If you are feeling generously inclined, we can sure use some help
with meeting the siteís financial needs for the coming months.
You can learn all the ways you can help by clicking here.
also want to thank all of those kind souls who offered their help with
site maintenance. Be
prepared, because you might hear from me at the moment of crisis!
So far, so good!
can make this column really simple, really fast.
First, I got nothing on OLTL (big surprise, right?)
only got a little on AMC and that is to speculate about what they could
possibly be doing by knocking up Anna.
Weíve heard the (strong!) rumor that Finola Hughes will likely be
migrating to GH as early as February, so if we do a little math, we find
that sheíd be about 6 months along then.
Will she lose the baby (yet another tiny soul sacrificed on the
altar of soap opera convenience)? Will
she leave David and take the baby? Címon,
ABC, throw us a bone here!!
that, as they say, is that for the nonGH news, so lets move on.
course, the most burning and pressing weirdness at the moment is that
bizzarro world attic stuff going on Friday.
Those of you on the East coast have already seen todayís episode,
but Iím still chomping at the bit.
It doesnít take much to figure out that Laura, our favorite
little homicidal teenybopper, is the one who off'd Theresa Carter, but
Darling! Wait til you hear
what is coming next (if you havenít already...donít know what the
other sites are talking about!).
A source close to the set has told me that Laura goes total, headcase
whackjob and bops LUKE on the head!
He ends up taking her away to a stable to try and convince her of
what heís seeing in the photographs he and Lucky developed and she
refuses to believe it. And ends up CALLING NIKOLAS and telling him that
(get ready) Luke is holding her prisoner!!
This does NOT bode well for what will happen to Laura when Genie
Francis leaves the show!
to rumor and spoiler, at the (at least I heard it was at the) engagement
party for Skye and Jax, Edward is taunting Skye with the contract and
BONK, falls to the floor in a stroke.
As the paramedics are coming, Skye goes Mondo Carpe Diem and is in
the process of pulling the papers out from under Edward when Jax walks in
and catches her!
not sure if this is when Jax finds out about the contract, but I'm hearing
another story that might be an instead of or a continuation of, which has
Ned actually being the one to find the contract and giving Skye an
ultimatum: tell Jax or Ned
will. She does.
Jax finds out and is totally merciless in his banishment of her.
He does, after all, have to free up so Brenda-shaped air at his
side. (It is also rumored
that they will, ultimately, reunite in order to get maximum mileage from
the potential Brenda-Jax-Skye triangle) This drives poor Skye right into the bottom of a bottle,
which leads to some rather odd circumstances.
She also is blamed for the loss of the oil map Roy picked up for
supposedly (although this rumor was a while back and might now be defunct)
asks Ned to return to the head of ELQ (it surprises me she would not as AJ,
since heís destitute). Jax
ends up turning his own ELQ shares over to Ned, presumably to avoid
involvement of any kind with Skye.
Edward is at the hospital in critical condition, *someone* pulls the plug
on Grandpapa. Skye does
indeed visit him, but is drunk off her ass and canít remember what
happened. Amy says she saw a
redhead fleeing the scene. Maybe drunk-as-a-goat Skye tripped on the cord?
sees his blushing bride blushing on all four cheeks as she performs and
turns firebug (which writer on the staff is a pyro, I wonder??), setting
the Oasis on fire.
Iím going to be totally pissed if this means the end of my favorite bad guy!!
Look for this gal to become an important person on screen:
Miranda is going to be playing Brendaís nurse on Alcazarís yacht and
sheís thinking hard about getting OFF the yacht.
When Zander makes his way onto the boat, Nurse knocks him out,
drugs him and squirrels him away to help her escape.
is drugged and has a foggy memory of her past and also has an interest in
whatís going on shorewise. She
quizzes Zander about Jax and Sonny.
finds out that Zander is on board and bonks him on the head, then throws
him overboard, figuring heís done him in.
Zander survives, but has amnesia and when Liz later finds him, he
doesnít know who he is.
on the other hand, has bigger fish to fry as she becomes increasingly
drawn to Jason. Jason
doesnít want to endanger her further by having her in his life, so
heís playing hard to get. They
are about to kiss tomorrow, Tuesday the 13th, but are interrupted.
Things get steamy and they actually get a lip lock on the 15th.
Yeah, they are going to drag this out.
Liz is going to be an aggressor and Jason is going to ward her off
for a long while, but with stolen kisses, longing looks, the stuff that
long-assed trailers for sweeps week are made of.
the return status thus far? Stephen
Nichols? Not likely.
Amber Tamblyn? Not
likely. Finola Hughes? Possible. Tristan
Rogers? Not contacted yet (WTF?).
Kim McCullough? No plans at this time. Jane
Elliott? Says she hasnít
been contacted (WTF again??). Sounds
like the powers that be are throwing all kinds of rumors out there
themselves to look good to the viewers!
on Peanut? None. The fate of Alexisí baby is still getting mixed reviews and
reports. Yes, Ned is going to
have to deal with some poor health on Alexisí part, but it has not been
officially said that Peanut is a goner.
look for Alexis to do some serious, Charles Bronson-worthy Death Wish
stuff in the near future, including turning hard on Sonny by helping AJ go
for the throat in obtaining custody of Mikey.
Iím surprised that card is only now being played since Head
Writer Bob Guza has always had a hankering for that particular story
between AJ and Sonny or AJ and Jason or AJ and Carly.
Nik and Gia are going to be involved in the forefront for a while, it will
be about Lucky and his cliff dive and subsequent arrest rather than about
them in particular. The good
news is that it appears that their relationship threat is on hold for a
while at least.
what I hear, the scenes where Lucky and Nik are (again) getting rid of a
body (Rickís) are very well done. Iím
very grateful that these two are no longer on the outs.
going to step into Daynaís shoes for a minute and go fashion police.
Honey, I mean to say that the clothes Laura and Lesley were wearing
to the rehearsal dinner were an absolute felony offense!
Peeeyuke!! Also, what,
what, what was that evil monstrosity perched on top of Skyeís head when
she and Jax were snuggly buggilies at the patio door the other day?
Yikes! It was
something like Joan Crawford meets Kitten from Father Knows Best. It definitely made my teeth hurt! Loved the red suit on Alexis, though and she is doing a great
job of looked extra-haggard in her grief.
news I considered. When
Alexis pops out a beautiful baby with dark hair and dimples, her
consistent taste in men will be rewarded because no one would doubt itís
job of playing dying and dead on Jamie Ray Newmanís part! She really, really, really looked dead! Ack! Gone in
(less than) 60 seconds.
Loved the awesome WHACK Alexis dealt Carly (ďThis is MY baby and
donít you forget it!!Ē). I think Tamara Braun might have actually caught one on
of which, TB has done (giving credit where itís due, baby!) a
tremendously ass kicking job in the acting department lately and has
certainly risen to the challenge of appearing opposite NLG in such intense
In case you havenít seen them, here are the new kids on the block:
that, my precious, is that and just in case no one else says it to you all
week, I love ya, Baby.
*Whew!* Darlings, I have completed my first week as Manager of Eye on Soaps and I have to say, it was much more of an undertaking than I expected! I had no idea what all was involved. Fortunately, Iím hitting my stride and finding ways to pare down the upkeep of the site to make it more manageable. Iíve received so many wonderful letters of well wishes and encouragement that it is a joy to do. Not only that, but Katrina is doing so much better after a break and is thriving as a columnist rather than shouldering the full responsibility. She has a MUCH needed vacation coming up for the GH Fan Weekend in a little less than three weeks and I know sheís going to have a blast. Many of you have asked if I will be attending the Fan Weekend and Iím sorry to say, Iím not going to make it this year. With momís health the way it is, I am just not comfortable going that far away without her and if I take her, sheís going to do to much and be in bed again, so itís best we set this one out. Katrina has promised to take lots of pictures and rabid notes!
on to the dish!!
news actually hit fairly quietly. We
knew some time ago that Angela Shapiro was leaving her position as head of
ABC Daytime and was merely riding out some time until her successor could
be named. It was a dangerous
and tense time as we waited to learn who would take over the throne,
knowing full well that GH Executive Producer Jill Farren Phelps has been
batted from one ABC show to another, leaving disaster in her wake.
With the seeming status of golden child at ABC, we were
terror-stricken that she might actually be promoted out of the EP
position. It has been
announced that Brian Scott Frons, (who?), former senior vice president of
programming for the London-based SBS Broadcasting and ex- vice president
of creative affairs for NBC. What
will now happen to JFP? I
have a feeling we will soon know now that this announcement has been made.
Iíve heard rumors that Head Writer, Bob Guza, is actually already
working as EP while JFP is in place in name only.
Iíve also heard that Charles Pratt, Guzaís co-Head Writer, is
also in line for the EP job. Iím
sure weíll hear an announcement by the end of the year.
For the meantime, sheís harmless.
I got almost nuthin on AMC, as usual.
Same for OLTL. I know
that there is a casting call out for someone to come on board as a love
interest for poor, lonely Tad. I
have no idea what this does for the projected Tad-Brooke connect!
There are still
rumors of Anna moving to GH, at least for a temp shot.
There is a lot
of buzz about how Vanessaís time in the arms of Death will change her
and what was behind all that. Of
course, as you can tell, thereís a lot more to Trey than we know now.
OH, Mia, such
tragic, tragic hair, honey!
Good to see the
old Liza back and in power again. :)
OH, Greenlee, tragic, tragic hair, honey! Whoís gone mad with the scissors in Pine Valley?
Believe it or not, Iíve got something!!! The Friends Of Brian Gaskill are doing something special for his one year anniversary on the show! Click here to find out!
In the ďwill
you notice?Ē file, it looks like Amber Ryan (Emily) will be leaving
town, as she said, to go back to school.
The on top story is that the Troy storyline is taking a different
turn and her character has been rendered extraneous.
The under story is that the character just wasnít working out the
way they wanted.
Are you a fan of the Creek?
Watch for Roger Howarth to check into
Dawsonís world as Professor Greg Hetson, Joey's handsome English
professor and academic advisor. Good
for him! He seems to be
taking full advantage of his departure from OLTL (youíre watching
pre-taped stuff now).
Here is the olive fork:
Start digging out your eyes so you donít have to watch the boring crap that is coming up.
Who could that
upcoming ďEnglishmonĒ be? Itís
not Stephen Nichols, unfortunately! As
a consolation prize, think of an English actor who plays an Aussie!
Nurse Spencer might be saying, ďScott Who??Ē but not until A
Martinez is off the radar.
the same as Gedstern about different endings being taped to the attic
story. On this one, we will literally have to wait and see on the 12th
what will air.
One of our
readers wrote to say sheíd been to Ingoís mall tour and told us he
verified that the Jax and Brenda fans are going to love whatís coming
up! If thatís bad news to
some of you, baby, donít shoot the messenger! I didnít write the story!
Iím just reporting it.
A source close
to the set mentioned to me that, indeed, Tony Geary is strongly
considering leaving the show by the end of the year to tend to personal
matters and take some time off.
We might be
seeing some of Helena around September.
twist of events results in Ned and Alexis marrying, I hear.
Following Kristinaís death, they will grow closer, although they
will continue to resist it at first.
Edward works to try and get Skye to steal an important oil map from Jax. Alcazar gets to it first by way of Roy.
I said last week, Edward has a stroke and Skye uses it to her advantage,
snatching the contract out of his hands as the paramedics are
arriving. Lila asks Ned to return to ELQ.
Brenda/Dianaís memory fried from the accident or from the
ďmedicationĒ Alcazar was giving her?
Which came first? Does he have Brenda to get back at Sonny and Jax or is he
getting back at Sonny and Jax because he wants to keep Brenda?
She knows enough to have an interest in Jax and Sonny and when she
comes across an engagement announcement for Skye and Jax, it moves her to
On the yacht,
Brendaís nurse is actually the one who knocks Zander unconscious.
She is looking for someone to help her and has lots of questions
for Zander when he comes to. They
(Zander, Brenda and the nurse) are the three who escape the yacht and the
nurse is actually being tried out as (another) love interest for Zander.
That means, of
course, that the Liz and Jason union is off and running.
Look for a couple of false starts, longing looks, etc, but itís
going to be full force soon. Yeah,
thereís going to be some continuation of the weird triangle for a while,
but itís petering out.
albeit surprising, Carly gives Liz some tips on being a mobsterís
girlfriend, but itís not what you think.
Sheís afraid Lizís lack of experience in the field is going to
get Jason hurt or killed! In
an odd moment the new PodCarly tell Jason that if he really loves Liz, he
should fight for her!
be done in the next day or so. Get
the tissues out for NLG moments.
Is it real or is
it Memorex? Carly continues
with her ďtake care of Sonnyís babyĒ routine in regard to Alexis.
Alexis goes off on Sonny and Carly at Kristinaís memorial
service, accusing them of being responsible for Kristinaís death.
Despite a warning from Carly that she should calm down for the
babyís sake, Alexis collapses. (Baby remains intact at this point...no word yet on the fate
of the peanut).
Sonnyís concerns for their safety, Michael and Carly move back into the
penthouse (can I have their old one?).
time as a stripper is culminating. She
ends up getting arrested for prostitution and Jason saves her.
Additionally, SONNY ends up seeing her stripping when heís
meeting with Roy at the Oasis. He
offers to help her, but she refuses his help (if I were at a point of
stripping, I think Iíd accept help from Old Scratch himself...my mobster
brother would be a dream!).
When Nikolas and
Lucky find Rickís body in the attic (after L&L are already MIA),
they decide to cover up the apparent murder by putting the body in a car
and sending it off a cliff. Lucky
decides to drive the car over and Nik and Gia, for a good cliffhanger (ha
ha), think heís gone up in flames with the car.
He survives and is promptly arrested.
Alexis agrees to be his attorney and Nik and Gia try to help him
leave town, but they are discovered.
As I said, Luke
will be back and hang around through Luckyís trial, which goes on into
the fall. Alexis and Luke will be working together to help Lucky.
Datís all I gots! Look forward to a great GH (Mansoap) week!
