TIOLI! My first favorite SD insider (the Stuart stuff was my first hit off the Soap Dish crack).
Can you share anything about what is happening/happened with Finola?
I can only offer a guess based on what I know to be happening backstage right now - and that she would not want to rock the boat for her friend(s). I'm sure someone "asked her" to not appear, as it would impact story already planned. Whether FH believes it or not, I'd say not. Again, my own hypothesis.
Hmm. So would another certain petite brunette that has known Finola for most of her life have paid the price for Finola jumping to Y&R in your opinion?
And is there really a big story planned or is it like it sounds a bunch of smoke?
Yes and considering all stories are put on hold - including theirs - it's smoke.
Thanks for the answer. Lived through FH upsetting the apple cart backstage back in 92. Do you know if there is big meaty story for her this summer or if it is like last summer's Eli stuff? Thanks for posting tonight. You are much appreciated!
I almost didn't post, as I have been annoyed most nights when I have peeked in here.
TIOLI...any idea why the Scrubs baby story is being written as comedy and not dramatic and meaningful as it should be?
Sadly, I believe it's a case of someone believing they have more time than they actually do to pen this story. With all pens poised to rehabilitate their returning Diva - the way to "stretch" the other stories is either inaction, minimal "meat" or filler/fluff.
TIOLI,Does Jason Thompson have legit primetime offers ?
He's been approached as well as made inquiries.
I think TIOLI2 would be confusing. My preference is that they just use another name - I don't see it as being that difficult.
Anna is not going to ever be Mother of the Bride on GH. If and this is a big if, Robin and Patrick get married, it will be some quick elope to Las Vegas before either backs out wedding. With no guests and if not off screen probably their last scene and they never come back to PC
I believe the point the poster was trying to make is that however misguided, ABCD would prefer that FH not appear as MOTB on another network with them having a potential wedding story in the works.
Morning TIOLI, Do you know anything about the drop in the IL about Jason Thompson auditioning for a role on Brothers and Sisters?
G'morning. No, I haven't heard any specifics.
morning, were you the one Dropping off the info in the IL?
Good Morning - no I was not. I have not posted info on the new board since it's inception. I will not be around too much though - at least not posting info - but someone sent me a PM yesterday to sign on, as they were confused about a drop.
Anything good behind the scenes lately, Chatup? Anything bad behind the scenes?
Things are getting very dicey behind the scenes. The tension between the HW and the EP is getting worse and it's trickling down to the cast
There are at least 4 cast members currently looking at options - the rehabilitation of Claudia, which shows no end, has made a few question why they are there
Cu you said 2 females are looking at other options...got any hints, age range etc
both are vets -one on the younger side than the other
Hey Chat up long time no chat...So the cast is not liking the rehab of Claudia. Wow it's a shame. Thing must be tension filled on the set
Things are not great - it's as bad now as it has been in quite some time
So is this is whats causing the tension between the EP and HW?
The HW blames the EP for everything going wrong during the strike and making a mess he can't fix.
The EP thinks the HW is undermining her. She also doesn't agree with his rehab program but he claims it's her fault he needs one to begin with
Are these cast members all female?
CU - if you were a betting woman, what do you think is going to happen between the EP and HW and who do you think will be leaving and/or which arcs are going to do a 180? TIA (Have you watched Cranford yet?)
I did and it was good!
My guess is the EP will be out the door first - either to another show or out for good.
As for storylines - I'm not comfortable guessing
CU can correct me if I'm wrong, but I have a feeling CBS recognizes the position she [Finola Hughes] was in with ABC's pettiness.
Probably - and if she did infact sign a contract, there likely was some kind of out clause given her prior committment to ABC which CBS would have been fully aware of
What went wrong during the strike? I didn't see anything major that couldn't have been tweaked. The mess was not in the introduction/writing of the character but in deciding to hire her in the first place.
hey deedee - that would be where you and the HW have a fundamental different point of view. He believes she would have been a hit if only handled properly
ChatUp who is most unhappy now? Kimson and Burton?
Kimberly is said to wanting to move the story on to the more serious material
Burton is accepting where things are for now.
How many of the actors that are considering other options are female? And have you heard anything about VM?
nothing concrete beyond the "it would be great if she came back"
have you heard anything about Chuck Pratt moving to the 90210 spin-off that is coming out this fall. the main reason I'm interested is because I heard a rumor that he was doing this and was interested in taking two current GH actors along for the ride.
You heard anything about that?
I have heard that he is attached to the project but I haven't heard anything about taking actors
Is Jason Thompson happy with Patrick and Robin's story?
the last I heard - which was a few weeks ago - he was not overly pleased
How come some people can post GH on Yt and others get shut down? Do you know how TPTb feel about the show being on YT. Why don't they put the episodes up on ABC.com.
I do know that if the videos are sent to their attention, then the laywers will recommend they act on it but beyond that i don't know
Chat Up can you expand on the Frons sees Scrubs as cash cows drop from the weekend and why it doesn't show up that way onscreen or in story for them
I wouldn't want to put words in PA's mouth so this is my interpretation - Frons is aware that Scrubs are popular - hence NS - and that there is much storyline potential that could garner mainstream press (except they aren't going there but that's another story...)
This rehab project is really hurting the show. Isn't the EP strong enough to stand up to the HW?? I guess I've answered my own question. :lol:
She's having her legs cut out from underneath her
So chatup, you have lost hope that the Scrubs story really won't be told? And Frons doesn't care enough to make it told well?
I wouldn't say that. It is taking much longer than what I was orginally told it would

Robin - Braxton Hicks - July
Robin is surprised with Anna comes to her doorstep in full grandma mode.
Robin/Patrick are one of the strongest couples out of the bunch. They will have some sweet moments together and experince many "firsts" with their bundle of joy. But that doesn't mean their won't be hard times. Expect alot of bumps in their journey to parenthood.
That is all I have for right now. Ciao!
Robin deals with her mother's paranoia about being a grandmother. At the same time Robin and Patrick are at cross purposes about Patrick's role and/or ability as father.. possible husband. Robin has a pregnancy scare. Patrick deals with his fears when Noah comes onto the scene.
Summer - Leading into Fall
Robin and Patrick open up.
can you expand on the scrubs one? tia
From what I understand, they come to an understanding after some deliberation.
What kind of understanding? Is it a good thing or a bad thing for them as a couple? TIA
Mostly good, but self-doubt prevails.
I will tell you this, that there really are several actors looking at other options. Some have been at the business longer than others, some are being courted by outsiders, some have other career interests they'd like to pursue, and some find themselves slowly being ousted. Those in charge are preparing for several change-ups within a year, as they have been met with many requests for early "outs." Expect massive storyline changes in the future as a result.
