Dial Emmy for Murder Book

This is my quick review of Eileen Davidson’s book “Dial Emmy for Murder”, which was written in 2009. It is her second soap opera mystery novel, (two additional books came out in 2010 and 2011.) Ms. Davidson currently plays Ashley Abbott McCall on the Young and the Restless, but she has also appeared as Ashley on The Bold and the Beautiful. She also appeared in roles on the soap operas Days of Our Lives (Kristen, Susan and more), and Santa Barbara (Kelly Capwell). My summary/review does spoil some information, but does not give away the killer.

OLTL: David Vickers saves the day, the dog, not the man

This week on One Life to Live, Brody Lovett (Mark Lawson) saw his world fall apart, as everyone found out that he was not baby Liam’s biological father. The Buchanan clan had yet another wedding ceremony aborted at the altar as Natalie (Melissa Archer) realized that she could not marry him. This turn of events would never come to be if not for Princess David Vickers. Tina’s (Andrea Evans) Shih Tzu found the document, and it became a comedy of errors.

AMC: Bad News from ABC: SID

Just wanted to do a drive by entry tonight, due to the horrid news that ABC: Soaps In Depth shared that All My Children on Prospect Park is on hold.

My entire reaction to it tonight is ARGH! I feel like Charlie Brown getting the football pulled away from Lucy. Hopefully this is just a temporary setback and not forever. Also I hope it isn’t a forbearer and One Life to Live shares the same fate. Development Hades is still Hades.

B&B Hope and Thomas

On Wednesday, November 10, I was able to catch an episode of The Bold & The Beautiful. The main story was about Hope (Kimberly Matula) and Thomas (Adam Gregory).

Due to missing All My Children, I decided to finally read my copy of the Kendall Hart (Alicia Minshew) book “Charm”. It was written by an unknown author in 2008 and was a tie-in novel to All My Children. Here are my thoughts on it and if you don’t want to know don’t read the rest.
