Hey, good interview on GHOFS with Senta Moses. (See my rant below! )

I have a lot of stuff to cover today so sit back, relax and WUB it!

First of all, if you watch the Unusuals with Amber Tamblyn on ABC you should have heard by now the idiots are going to cancel it. THIS before the show even has a chance to catch hold. It’s really a great, different kind of show and they need to be slapped for not picking it up. There’s a petition to SAVE THE UNUSUALS  up for everyone to sign! Amber also has thoughts on the subject up on her official AMTAM site.


Remember Gia from GH? She was involved with Nikolas for a time and when they actually had diversity, she was Taggert’s little sis. Well, she’s on Fox’s  Mental (thx for correction) now. Marisa Ramirez plays a lesbian doc on the show. Check out The Advocate’s article on her.

Heard that NuMolly starts filming next week but NO news/release on the kid’s name yet that is playing her! Will we have to wait for the credits to find out!!?


Dominic Zamprogna joins GH as Claudia’s henchman. RUMOR has it that he may turn out to be Dante. Ah, I looked it up and he was born in 1979.  Me thinks 30 years is a tad too old…then again, actors play younger than their years?? Read all about him on Daytime Confidential.  Just what we need, btw, another newbie male…hmmm.

Which brings me to a bone I have to pick (again) with the writers on GH. First of all, don’t waste a talent like Senta Moses. For Godsakes, you tried to make her Spin2 and it went over like a lead balloon. Anyone remember Lucy Coe? Bookish librarian? What about a transformation? Have her join the PCPD. She would make a great character actor for the show. Dropping the Winnie thing is yet another way GH drops stuff like hot potatoes. Like watching Agent Raynor “drop by” to talk to Alexis! People on twitter forgot who he was! (not that the stupid bio-toxic sphere story was ever really put together either!). Which, brings me to Kate. Sorry, but Megan Ward deserves better than to be shoved to the background for weeks and then have some lame exit that is taking a decade to play out. SHE WAS AT THE WAREHOUSE when Michael was shot! I know they are dying to shove OlSon in our faces but PLEASE FOR THE SAKE of continuity and just plain good story-telling HAVE her be around! Resolve the issues there first before jumping on a new idea. Drives me insane!! Just like the Robin Christopher exit. :eyeroll:

You can so tell that the writers all sit with their own laptops working on their OWN stories and don’t integrate a thing. Heck, the entire “Ethan Adventure” has taken place in a vacuum…don’t even get me started on the “Crimson Theft” story arc.

Yes, I am loving the NuMichael but move along, will ya? He’s not out of the hospital until June 12th! LOL…now, yes NORMAL post-surgery patients would take that long to heal. THIS “patient” is ready to rock and roll. Kinda like Alexis’ “Lung Cancer”…he was cured in a nano-second. (I bet there are people that don’t even know she had cancer!!)

Sarah Joy Brown  and Tristan Rogers both tweeted last night that they were  going to see “UP” (not together, I presume!! ) …Real Andrews was at a carnival with his family and Nancy Lee Grahn dropped some eggs on her kitchen floor.  LOOK at the fun you can have on Twitter! LOOK WubsNet up and you too can become a Tweep!

Kelly Monaco leaves Peepshow  this weekend and is replaced next weekend by Holly Madison of “The Girls Nextdoor” fame. I can just picture Kelly trying to decide if anything could go with her to Port Charles. Heh. Music to JaSam fan’s ears?

New Scoops are up. Please take a gander, you know the drill. Show some wub by hitting a sponsor. Just click, that’s it. I am personally cracking up that they are going to use those stairs to have another accident at the hospital. I mean, really now. REALLY?!

Special thx to Gedstern who’s my filler-inner. I’m so proud to have her back on the site!

Well,  Laura, I see you FELL ASLEEP on Friday. How hilarious…LOL. I take it I missed Cardia and Michael and Ethan junk…oh well. Whatever. I’m glad I DVR’d OLTL though…they’ve had their “sweeps” time going strong long after the time was up!

LIZ, congrats on your graduation! We’ve had a few this year!!

I went home to see my 101 year old gram who seems to be headed for the happy hunting grounds soon–she’s not sick but is just fading. Sat with her a bit and saw my parents. We have a new baby in the family (my 1st cousin’s grandbaby) …Noah who is the first one on that side of the family in `16 years! We hope to get a 5 generation picture!! Nice springtime day here, too nice for cyberspace!

I have a TON OF email to get through…hopefully some good scoops/news/gossip to pass along tomorrow.

I keep thinking about Kelly Monaco cleaning out her PEEPSHOW dressing room, wondering if anything is appropo to take to Port Charles. If you remember what happened after her DWTS season, I can totally see the writers making her an undercover strippah soon! LOL

See ya later.

Stoopid show put me to sleep! The zombies got me. I tried to take notes, I promised Karen I would blog for her, but Noooo…

all I got out was one sentence about Zombies. Ok, well next time I can’t sleep I know what to do, right? Watch Miracle Hospital.

From comments, it sounds like OLTL was good-

Good Afternoon Wubbers!

Before I get into GH, I have a request to pass a Tweet on. Please follow the person below on Twitter… you’ll see why as part of this message! Many Thanks! Pass it ON!

PLSRT@DanielleCNN Fight cancer by following @livestrongceo -anonymous donor will give LIVESTRONG $25,000 if he hits 25k followers by friday!

I may have a friend popping in to read this later– last she knew Laura was insane after Luke and Laura’s latest wedding. Anyone care to recap for her? I could try, but I know there are gaps in my knowledge…

OK– Love Jason and Michael. I knew this would happen when Michael went into a coma, but I couldn’t have predicted that it would be written well and acted well! Yay!

GH needs a new opening. Hopefully one that isn’t dependant on actors coming and going…put up logos for Web Sites like WUBS and GHOFS that support them! There is no way it should take so long for new openings.

Love the nicknames! Spanky, English, Dodger,, Natasha. Luke doing BetaVersion Spinelli names! BTW- as far as I know a certain nameless someone has the Sapphire Necklace in RL…not saying who!

Robin and Ethan…they seem to get along like houses afire! Now we know for sure why baby Emma was named Emma! That was the plan.. Emma Samms return! Oooh— now if this is anywhere on the net, I haven’t seen it. I could be all wrong, all wet for any reason…but Jax grew up in Australia right? Didn’t he say that? Could Jerry, his older brother be Ethan’s DADDY???

Michael: (sort of misquoting) “If people say something wrong they are afraid I might go back into a coma” Oooh… wouldn’t that be a great THREAT. “If you say something wrong to me, I will go in a coma”. I could use that. Kinda like a Possum with the fake death, or Fainting Goats passing out at whim. I don’t mean I could use that in a book- but in real life it could come in handy!

Love it that Jax and Carly are where they are. They both are speaking the truth for a change!
He is right and so is she! WHO is writing this for Thursdays now?

Sam/Jason. Jason’s thumbs in his pockets pointing to what? Sam notices. Just sayin. They also mentioned Jerry. Anyone keep count of how many times his name came up today?

If you had a Neurosurgeon, would you expect him to hang around at the Nurses Station to input stuff into the computer and talk to whoever happened by? Well, not me. But it works! Patrick was great with Carly. Not so much with Claudia, but appropriate.

Had to ask Karen the other day who Fredo was. For the life of me, I couldn’t figure out why Frodo was involved with GH, LOL!

Perhaps Michael is going to be the one to answer ALL the questions plaguing the fans! He seems to know just what to ask Jason! And now Claudia!

Ya think Tracey stole Rebecca’s dark eyeshadow? Looked like it to me.
Robin has a SpreadSheet about where her parents are for the past few decades! LOVE IT!

The PT transport guy for Michael was spot on!~ Lets see more of him as an extra.

Today I saw a few conversations of interest. Luke/Alexis, Robin/Holly, Holly/Mac, Robin/Ethan, Michael/Jason, Michael/Claudia and more! As long as you can suspend your disbelief, this should go over well.

I think someone writes knowing the show will air on a Thursday when I am sure to watch. Ya think? LOL!
