- SOD lets an actor send a letter to their fans - Jason Thompson represented GH
From the Desk of Jason Thompson:
My 2007 started off at Halo in Edmonton, Canada, one of the two bars that I co-own with my pals Blair and Sal. Since the year we opened, we've been having New Year's parties, so I couldn't imagine being anywhere else.
In the spring, we started taping GH: Night Shift. I'm not going to lie, I was very nervous. It was the first time they've done a nighttime spin-off in all of soap history, so I was grateful and honored to be a part of it. Billy Dee Williams and I went to New York to do The View and sharing those little moments really stayed with me. The man is truly a movie star.
Every year, Blair, Sal and I take a "research" trip, so this summer, we went to Rome, Barcelona and Prague... In September, I got my dog. Vedder is a Great Dane puppy. He's getting very big. He's 6 months old and about 110 pounds. In November, I was named Sexiest Soap Star by People. That was quite shocking. Now at work, Greg and Bradford will walk into the makeup room and be like, "Do you know you're doing one of the Sexiest Guys Alive's makeup?" I'm waiting for Maurice to give me a left hook to really show me who's sexy!
My parents bough Ingo's car. Josh Duhon bought one of his motorcycles, so if you want a vehicle, just go to Ingo's garage and pick what you want! Sal flew down and we drove it home over Thanksgiving. We drove through San Francisco, Napa Valley, Portland, OR up through Montana and into Calgary. Since nothing was open, we had Thanksgiving dinner at Burger King, but it was fun. I love road trips and cruising through the mountains.
There's so much more to add: Team Scrubs raised nearly $55,000 for the AIDS Walk. I posed [nude] for a T-shirt to raise money for NYU Melanoma Fund. And, I'll be home for Christmas and I plan on celebrating New Year's at the bar again.
Wishing you much joy in the new year. Hopefully, your world won't be filled with as much drama as we portray! Happy Holidays!
The photo caption from a picture of him laying in bed with the Stanley Cup says "I've been watching hockey since they day I was born and although it was a very tough year for my Edmonton Oilers, what a great opportunity to touch the Stanley Cup!"

He notes that's how it was left and there aren't any contracts and that's how he likes it. "If there's interest, they'll write something. If there's not, there are other things to do."

Soap Dish Anon:
What's up for Scrubs??
They'll be together, but not really, through January.
Feb sweeps brings another turning point for Patrick. They're trying to undo some of the NS damage to the character.
Leyla is being moved away from them, but there's controversy behind the scenes on that one. Not everyone is happy about it. (source)
KS's legal troubles didn't have a big impact on her story. Some, but not much.
JMB is the star of the younger set. Guza loves her, wants her to be happy.
Georgie was killed to make Lulu the only good girl. NOT saying JMB asked or wanted it. All Guza. BA was very pissed off.
Maxie is going to take a downturn after G's death. Drinking, angry, etc. Expect hook-ups with Logan.
JD is unhappy. Feels he got screwed for BB. He's not wrong.
Neither is JMB's first choice pairing. (source)
Please explain why JT is the chosen one and what is the agenda? Thank you so much
Chosen one? What do you mean?
The person who spec'd this was really about where to move Leyla to was right on. JT has very little pull. Not hated, but not a fave. KMc is the same. (source)
Someone wants Leyla for Nikolas/TC. Someone else is very opposed
Guza is listening. Or was, before the strike. And will be again after.
JMB set her sights higher than Spin. It couldn't be done, so they got a similiar type for her in Johnny. Tried first with Logan. Didn't pan out.
Lol, would that have been JaLu-Jason and Lulu? What's she got against playing the stuff with Johnny? Or is it still too early for her to judge? Are they only listening to her, because Guza adores the girl? Who else, other than SBu/MB do they listen to wrt their upcoming storyline ideas?
That's what JMB wanted and asked for. She wasn't happy when told no and the answer was changed to "not yet". Don't know for sure if that was just to appease her, but if it happens, its FAR off.
JMB is okay about Johnny/BB. Not her first choice. She's glad the Logan stuff is coming to an end. She didn't care for that at all.
MB doesn't have the same pull he used to. Very fond of MW and Sonny/Kate but that may not save her. Depends on SBr.
LW is listened to, but doesn't always get what she wants or how she wants it. NLG is talked to, but not listened to.
They don't care. They want the stars to be who they want them to be, and we can suck on it. If we like other people better and let GH know it, God help that actor because they'll be killed off.
I think the positive response to Geospin actually got Georgie killed off. Too "distracting" to the starmaking they continue to want for JMB.
I reported the JMB stuff. You're right on about this.
Want to stress it was NOT JMB's request. It was about what Guza wanted for her.
Well what about SB/BH?
SBu is listened to and has more pull now than he used to. Guza loves him. That isn't news.
BH isn't really involved in long term stuff. She and GV are in similiar boats. Paired with people who get more info and have more pull than they do.
KeM's influence has dropped, but it's still there. A bit like NLG. Talked to more than listened to. Different sources though. (source)
they admit his character was damaged but wants to keep the albatross that did the most damage around their necks?
Not everyone's first concern is the character. People have other agendas.
Haven't their "agendas" been impacted by the strike and the crap sweeps numbers?
It's business as usual and they are going ahead with pre-strike and pre-sweeps plans?
I answered someone else about this. It's more about where she moves to. (source)
It won't be happy all the time but there is no sperm switch with Carjax. Patrick will know Robin is pregnant with their baby.
So Patrick agrees to give her sperm?
Patrick has a change of heart. (source)
Guza is nowhere near the set. Not in body. Not in spirit. Not in influence. And that is just the way the remaining PTB want it.
This is probably what is false, damn it.
I posted this and it isn't false. Feel free to confirm with Chat up whenever they return. (source)
Thanks for that. Do you by any chance have information on JD as far as the rumors we have heard of him being heavy handed with the crew?
How's KS storyline standing with the show?
And anything you can tell us about LL's last days or future plans would be greatly appreciated.
Heavy-handed? Not really. When the casting call for Logan went out, he was billed as the future young leading man at GH. Lots of guys tried out for the role. Josh got it. I think he was impressed with his own success, so to speak, when he first came on board but I haven't heard a lot of bad about him. This has changed somewhat in recent weeks but for along time he really didn't hang out with Julie and the other "teens" when they weren't filming. They are all friends and are in and out of each other's dressing rooms all the time and he wasn't a part of that until Brandon joined the cast. Brandon fit right in and then Josh kind of joined in with them.
As far as I know Kirsten is fine. She got some stern lectures, more from the point of view, like "you know if you were over the legal limit you weren't able to drive, you could have gotten yourself killed. You could have killed someone else." . I don't think her job was ever in jeopard, or anything like that. If it happened on a regular basis, it might be, but by in large, people were supportive. Not like, oh poor you, but like OK, you made a mistake, deal with it, make better choices in the future, and get on with your life. So she's fine.
As for Lindze, I think she was expecting to leave when her contract extension ran out. She was hopeful initially but figured out quickly that they weren't going to do anything with her during the extra three months so she wasn't surprised that she was let go, she was surprised that they killed off her character. But she took it really well. I did hear, and I thought this was sweet, that Branford and Kirsten both got lots of compliments from the other cast members and crew for the scenes they did. They were both told something like "that's the best work you've ever done with the show." and they were both a little ambivalent because they appreciated the compliments but were not happy that their "best work" came at the expense of Lindze's job.

Yes please shed light on the ambiguity of the Patrick and Robin relationship. Will they be a couple during the pregnancy? Thanks
I don't know alot about the Patrick/Robin pregnancy stuff because to be honest the ideas and visions for this change all the time. As of right now I'm hearing a big stall on it. But, I've also heard they are going to go ahead w/the pregnancy, Patrick will be the father but alot of problems and troubles ahead. It won't be a smooth pregnancy. Kimberly and Jason's contracts are also an issue because rumblings are KMc will leave when hers is up. (source)
This bears repeating (hopefully) one more time. Guza isn't there and currently has no say on set. Writer/producers are honoring the strike and not working. Guza isn't working. Not as a writer. Not as a producer. Jill is in charge. Frons is also around but he has three soaps to divide his attention inclusing a swiftly sinking AMC. (source)
OP Is Guza gone?
Guza's gone, so who knows what's happening. I know Spin's father story is nowhere to be found.
gone as on strike.
Gone on strike. Yes, that's what I mean. He's not around influencing things. It's all Jill and her Scabs. (source)
Quick Drop Off:
Scrubs and Liason will not be on for the week of the 24th and 31st, except for the montages. (source)
Scrubs are in the montage on xmas eve? I thought Robin left to go be with her family?
She does. She has 4 scenes with Patrick on Monday the 24th and then 1 with her family before the montage. (source)
Maxie leans on Robin for help and support, Robin promises to help her (source)
