I've Got GH Scoopage!!!
[insert echo chamber]
One of my most favorite, delicious little lurky-loos gave me a beautiful tidbit to pass on to you!!
Turns out Cameron is definitely Zander's father and the very big Zander story is close enough to touch!
The Dad and Son are estranged because Zander (as in AlexAnder) accidentally killed his brother, Peter, in a hunting accident. Cameron blamed Zander. They part ways. Zander sees Cameron in town, has a huge flood of memories and flips out, ending up overdosing on pills to forget!
Looks like our Sweet Zander is going to need some big time comforting. Any volunteers? Hmmm?
PS: Was that some hot stuff between Ty and Cat on OLTL today or WHAT???
Wow!! Roxy and Max were incredible too! I am SERIOUSLY impressed!!
Kitties Aren't Gone...Just Resting...I'm trying out the
cartoons I commissioned to be drawn for the column.
some of the computer monkeys out there seem to still be confused into
thinking that I consider myself to be some kind of scoopster on a regular
basis (my darling regular readers, PLEASE don’t sprain anything optical
as you roll your eyes. You know you’re cool), I am going to
CLEARLY identify the information that is sent to me as actual
scoops/spoilers and folks can hopefully retain the info that anything else
is gossip about the rumors that are out there.
Pfft. If any of
the loud-mouthed bitch-mongers have any questions, they can read the
disclaimer one more freakin time and maybe take their meds that help them
retain info this time.
In case those are too many words all in one place, let me summarize: 1). I am a gossip columnist, not a scoopster. 2). Eye on Soaps has WONDERFUL scoops pages for each of the four ABC soaps, three of which also have commentary to accompany the spoilers. You can find any of the scoops updates at http://www.eyeonsoaps.com/announcements.htm . 3). I print spoilers when wonderful generous folks send them to me because I love to share them with the readers. I have friends and contacts that are affiliated with some of the shows who also pass along tidbits to me when they can without risk to their jobs. They tell me some of the ideas that are being considered that may or may not happen (like when some of you people pointed and made fun like a bunch of hyenas when I said that they were considering a Jason and Brenda pairing so a big to you people who wrote to bitch me out when I said it). Jeez, lighten up and have a good time and stop treating this like it’s freakin world politics or something. I mean, don’t make me send the Ho Posse out again.

let’s get on to GH
Ho Ho. Are there any Jax and
Brenda fans out there after Jax showed his take charge attitude with
Brenda, initiating her divorce for her without her consent then nearly
held her captive when she wanted to return to Port Charles?
I’m sure there are, but honey,
it doesn’t stop there!!
Brenda is put on trial as Alcazar’s killer, Jax decides without
consulting her to have her declared legally insane to get out of the murder charges, even going so far as to
bring Cameron in on the case!! Needless
to say, Brenda is pretty pissed, especially when her own mental health was
used against her for 4 years and she LIVED IN FEAR of going crazy at any
minute!! She continues to
maintain that she did NOT kill Alcazar, but Jax wants her to confess and
say she was temporarily insane at the time.
bristles when he throws at her that she’s just waiting for Sonny to save
her and she insists that Sonny wouldn’t ask her to tell the world
confesses that he tried to bribe Scott and the court psychologist, but
they refused. (That can’t
walks out on Brenda, ranting about how she needs to rush of Sonny’s
is the one who fills Brenda in on Jax’s maneuvers to frame Sonny and
Jason for Alcazar’s murder.
Jax returns and apologizes for storming out, explaining that he just
can’t lose her again.
refutes Courtney’s idea that AJ killed Ida.
Jason refuses to testify against Brenda, Courtney questions his feelings
for his wife.
and Jason get all hot and bothered.
most of you have heard by now, Rachel Ames has been axed from GH.
The actual story broke in this story from Fox
News (if you click on the link, it’s way down toward the bottom of
pretty much falls in the “don’t frickin’ get me started” file, so
you can imagine my take on it. She
was the last kiss of respect to anything that GH used to be, so to send
her away with no retirement ceremony, no gold watch, no Death of Audrey
scene is just absolutely deplorable.
the return of A Martinez being reported in the works, the cast of GH
should be afraid, very afraid. It
appears the trend is to kill off, literally or metaphorically, 2-3 good
characters any time someone returns.
When Rick came back (“Hurray!! We all shouted!!” he was first
reduced to a child molester, then to a shady businessman, then to a
philanderer and then to accessory to murder, then to a corpse.
The long awaited wedding of Luke and Laura was turned into a sick
and twisted parody and both Luke and Laura’s characters were destroyed
and shipped off to institutions (Although Luke’s corpse continues to
walk through these horrific revisited Laura replacement stories.
Is that Luke Hell?? To
have to go back over past scenes infinitely with the writing getting worse
and worse every time he does?? If
so, maybe he is dead and we – or he – just haven’t been informed.)
Speaking of dead, Anthony Geary most definitely did NOT die of AIDS
recently and that is just a stupid, vicious rumor.
Brenda returned, we saw the destruction of the character of Jax, who one
of my dear friends commented last week is now a parody of himself, of
Brenda, who is now possessing few to none of the endearing qualities of
her previous GH lives and of Skye who has lost her verve, her get up and
take charge manner. I was
more than ready to see her take on Jax and stand toe to toe, making this
divorce go out with a bang instead of a whimper, but it’s hard to do
that from the bottom of a vodka bottle.
If she could get an angry female lawyer (I’ll vote for the
original Tea Delgato from OLTL, the one who was a burr in Nora’s ass) to
take up her case and go for Jax’s ass(ets), I think it would be great to
watch!! Especially if it came
down to a “cheaper to keep her” scenario with SKYE finally deciding to
dump HIS ass (and keep the assets).
The one character to benefit from Brenda’s return has been Coleman, who is finally starting to get some good airtime. I have utterly loved his scenes with Skye and while I was disappointed that the Head Writers for GH have pretty much said that there won’t be an actual romance between the two because man, when he crawled into bed beside her in the hospital, I thought my heart was going to crawl out of my chest and hug the TV!! I don’t care WHO he ends up with, as long as he stays on the show!!
of a short lived Journey and a Liason reunion are gaining force as we see
Jason take quite an interest in Liz’s attraction to Ric (far more so
than a man all wrapped up in an off course Journey should take) and a
that be the case or will Brenda have enough of Jax’s manipulations and
dump him, only to find that thin line between love and hate to be thinner
than one would think with her hubby??
My guess is that only VM’s contract (or lack there of since
it’s in extended mode) and the whims of the powers that be will tell!!
Right now, I’m giving Brenda and Jason vs Jason and Liz a 50-50
split with Journey getting a big fat 0% chance of continuing beyond
Supposedly, Brenda and Jax don’t end up getting hitched as the guns and mobster scene interrupt things.
I’ve heard rumors of a Lucky recast yet again. It would be nice if they recast with Jonathan Jackson, but I can’t imagine we could possibly get that Lucky.
Speaking of my idol, Blake Gibbons, if you look carefully (if it’s still on) at the Pepsi commercial where Austin Powers beats the shit out of Brittany Spears (which has a lot going for it already!), you’ll see Blake on the peripheral as one of the party guests!! Yum!
Hey, have you got an idea about who killed Alcazar? Join the forum that's figuring it out!!
Yep, that's Kristina Cassadine herself, Jamie Rae Newman, in the new Leonardo-Tom Hanks movie, "Catch Me If You Can!"

NOTE: I DO NOT HAVE ANY
SURPRISE SPOILERS FOR AMC. THEY
ARE ALL INCLUDED ON OUR AMC SPOILER PAGE, WHICH YOU CAN ACCESS FROM THE
EYE ON SOAPS UPDATES PAGE.
it or not, AMC is up for yet another award for Outstanding Daily Drama
from GLAAD (the Gay and Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation) for their
sterling portrayal of Bianca as a celibate lesbian who would never pollute
the sacred airwaves of ABC unless she’s being predatorial with someone
who doesn’t think they are gay. I
mean, does GLAAD even WATCH how Bianca is portrayed or are they just
looking for any show that happens to have a gay character on it?
Bianca is so token she might as well be jammed into a subway slot.
Granted, the only opposition AMC faces is some show called “Telemundo”
and “Undressed” on MTV (which, talk about irony, once sported the
handsome, cadsome face of one Aiden Turner, our own shot up, living in a
manger ala Christchild Brit!!). Personally,
I think AMC will win it and parade it around like their own “Look how
liberal we are” icon then go on sporting very not gay acting Bianca
until they win the award again next year.
Never mind that Bianca is like every man’s fantasy gay woman.
Yeah. In a straight
guy’s head, all lesbians look like Bianca or the Barbie twins and live
to put on active shows for all the hetrosexual men of the world.
Fleur herself, La Lucci, will be holding court on Hollywood Squares this
week. Check local listings if
you are interested.
news is that we will be seeing a bit more of the fabulous Ellen
Bethea as Dr Janelle “Give’em Hell” Anderson at Pine Valley’s
free medical clinic. Additionally,
David will be connecting up with a gang banger this week and Anna’s life
ends up in danger. Yep.
They will be getting their buck’s worth out of the free clinic
deVry of Stargate and Port Charles fame will
be beginning the contract role of Michael Combias on January 23rd.
Soaptown USA interviewed him recently and you can read what he had
to say here.
Rayfield of “Another World” and “Law
and Order” and Anna
Cascio of the Emmy nominated run on OLTL have been selected to replace
Richard Culliton as Head Writers for AMC.
I tell ya or did I tell ya?? Isn’t
Sylvia Miles awesome as Roxy’s abusive mom?
Didn’t you stand up and cheer when Max stepped into the room,
knowing he was going to validate Roxy to the old bat?
Wasn’t Ilene Kirsten FABULOUS as the vulnerable and reticent side
of Roxy? I LOVED those scenes
and was so proud of everyone involved!
VERY powerful stuff!!
wait. I forgot something:
NOTE: I DO NOT HAVE ANY
SURPRISE SPOILERS FOR OLTL. THEY
ARE ALL INCLUDED ON OUR OLTL SPOILER PAGE, WHICH YOU CAN ACCESS FROM THE
EYE ON SOAPS UPDATES PAGE. :
where were we?? Look for the
good old eveil Todd to come back onto screen this week when he meets the
rough side of Mitch and what he’s done.
Finding out what Mitch has done to Viki, Jessica and Natalie will
push all the right buttons for Todd to swear out his vengeance on Mitch.
course, he’ll have to get in line to do it because Cris et al will be
swearing their vengeance as well. *sigh*
Head Writer Josh Griffith swears Mitch will be around for a while,
but Roscoe Born, who is the alter ego of bad guy Mitch Laurence, says that
he doesn’t see how Mitch can stay alive much longer.
He also comments that Mitch is his very favorite character to play.
(My favorite to watch).
will be quietly fading away as Teddy Sears was relinquished from the
confines of his contract with OLTL recently.
want to spend some very close time with George Clooney, I have decided.
Williamson takes over as Jessica on February 5th.
In a recent interview, David Fumero (Cris) expressed remorse that
he didn’t get to work with Erin Torpey before she left.
He also seemed to indicate his impression is that Cris is a bit of
a pushover for women and should use a little more discrimination.
He did, however, feel Cris has met this soulmate in Natalie and
even went so far as to label Jen as Cris’ way to get over Jessica.
He was asked what his hopes were for the new OLTL regime and his
fondest wish was that he’d get more work with Robert S Woods, Nathan
Purdee and Timothy Stickney, who he views as his mentors.
He glowingly stated that he felt he turned in his best work with
the three of them, particularly gushing over Stickney.
wins high kudos from several of his screen mates, including Barbara Niven,
who is lucky enough to be in line for the hottest scenes with RJ.
Josh Griffith mentions that he will be pumping up the Gannons and
the Vegas quite a lot in the future as Angel Square comes more into the
forefront and as there is big fallout from the Liz-Antonio-Keri pregnancy.
Antonio finds out SOON that he’s the papa and there are some
really powerful scenes coming between him, Liz and Hank.
Watch for my best girl, Barbara Niven, to turn in some killer
performances with all that inspiration around her (yum!).
declined to cast in his lot as to whether Bo would be landing with Nora or
Gabrielle in the future (since he and Nora will soon be working closely on
Natalie’s divorce from Mitch). He
remarked that Nora and Bo were terrific together, but that Gabrielle and
Bo are terrific now. Yeah,
and…? What’s it going to
be, PenMan?? He also
carefully remarked that in the past, he’d been shocked at some of the
turns that the characters he’d previously written were taking, even
yelling at the TV the way we do, “˜What were they thinking? What’s
going on! Oh my God!”
He also comments that he’d found some of the paths the characters
had taken to be “interesting.” His
goal, with advisor Michael Malone, is to balance out the canvas on OLTL
and bring the focus back to friends and family.
An actor on the show recently commented that we are going to LOVE
where the new powers that be are taking the show and that it has a whole
new feel that is very enjoyable.
also told that we can expect Max to break out of the two dimensional
character he has become since Luna’s death and dig back down a little
deeper into the Max layers to find his true self again.
This should be very enjoyable, particularly as his marriage to Roxy
is explored. Asa and he are
both going to be finding some interest in what they and the other feels
for this blonde fireball.
is back on January 13 and Barbara Garrick is always a welcome sight.
Be sure and check her out in the video/dvd releases of the Tales
of the City series.
