Days: The Gay Story Rumor Mill

Again I’m writing about rumors, but at least they are not ones about a cancellation. Days of Our Lives may do a “gay” story. Entertainment Weekly wrote an article about it here. Now SOD ran with the rumor with additional information in print. Spoilers or at least rumors are posted after this paragraph.

AMC: The Cancellation rumors & The Waiting Game

The last couple of days being a soap opera viewer have been rough. We’ve been waiting and waiting to find out is it true is All My Children really going to be cancelled and if so when? Or is it something else entirely. When most of the major media on the web are stating they believe AMC’s end is imminent, what can be done, just wait and listen. This post is just about coping or thinking out loud about the situation.

AMC, GH: Green Card Relationships

Currently both All My Children and General Hospital have plots about getting married for a green card. This puzzled me, as it isn’t the kind of story that is done too often in daytime soaps. Perhaps they were inspired by the 2009 movie “The Proposal” which centered on a woman who decides to marry her assistant to stay in the United States, and by the end of the movie they fall in love.
