11/6 Heard in the Waiting Room

  • Tristan talks about the Night Shift 2 ending and the election at Tristan Rogers:Unscripted
  • SOW Buzz - "JT says he and Guza spoke about the unusual choice of Coleman for best man and how Patrick doesn't do things by the book. It's just another example of Patrick throwing a wrench in the spokes and going off instinct. The choice brought something different to a traditional, soapy wedding, JT says. He loves working with Blake Gibbons. He's a great guy, a great actor, always well prepared and gets along with everyone." (SZ)
  • SOD: "What role on your show could you never play and why?" JT: "I could never play Robin. I don't know if I could put up with Patrick for that long." (SZ)
  • On a personal note, related to the below speculations about Monavie, if word comes out that Kimberly and/or Jason support Monavie or this kind of multilevel marketing scheme, The Scrubs Hub will go offline. MLMs are a dealbreaker for me.

11/5
Scrubs - have some amazing stuff coming up. Scrub fans rejoyce.

Scrubs fans should be happy. Lots of good stuff coming up for their couple. Matt will start to shre more scenes with Robin and Patrick. Nice family scenes.

This is quite interesting. I really would like to know what is happening behind the scenes at GH because the recent Scrubs stuff have been uncharacteristic in it's goodness. I would love to know the mastermind behind it.
You can thank FRons for your Scrubs stuff.
As for Scrubs, I actually don't think he penned it.
I think Guza did. But I think Guza penned it under very strict guidelines about the kind of story it was suppose to be.
Guza has always been a good writer as long as someone held a tight reign on him. He hated Wendy Riche but he was good writer when she was EP because she didn't let him run amuk. Jill has. Frons reigned him in on the Scrubs story and it has been some of the best work he's done as HW. If someone would keep a thumb on him all the time, the show might actually get better.

11/6
[supposed tension against KMc, KM, NLG, IR who spoke out against Monavie - which may affect storylines]
LS: where does KMc fit into all of this, considering she doesn't have a rep for speaking up much? Are the silent supporters going to stay quiet for long? And is upper management evaluating this situation?
TS: Her pickle is story-related. Affect couples? Well, due to these unprecendented circumstances, precautions have been taken. KMc is a very strong-willed individual. She cannot be moved. Regardless of the pressure she has been under. These suppporter will support those who were affected in the best ways they know how. As I said, it has raised eyebrows... :twisted:
Guest: I always have a hard time understanding how real-life conflict translates onscreen. :-? It seems so crazy to me.
In terms of precautions, will we be seeing a shift of storyline to prepare for a "new direction" that plays into KeMo's punishment? When it comes to IR and NLG, will their characters continue to be AWOL? Where is Frons is on all of this? And does this all stem from the fact that these four individuals are openly against the juice?
TS: La Scrubbie it seems as though the backstage politics are far more complex than anything Guza could create. Precautions were taken by a woman. A member of the crew. Not an actress. As a I said, this situation is UNPRECEDENTED. As for the NLG and IR, the future of thier characters are not clear at the moment. I do not have that information. Frons, well, he can only ignore this for so long. Yes La Scrubbie, that is EXACTLY where it stems from. Along with greed. My dear, we have hardly scratched the surface... :twisted:
Guest: The surface is now being opened up with a backho, anon.
LS: Oh really?
TS: Very much so my dear La Scrubbie. You see, this situation hits very close to home. Closer than you realize... :twisted:
LS: I'm so, so damn tired, but this is interesting. :lol:
So, who's calling the shots here on both sides? And how do both sides plan on proceeding?
TS: I will be more than happy to pick this up again at your convenience. I want you sharp. Well, one side is SBu and Guza. The other side, there is a collective. How either side will procede is anyone's guess. But I personally find thier methods of damage control, particularly on one side VERY interesting... :twisted:
LS: Is one side going to use their very loud, very vocal, very mobile fanbases?
TS: You are correct... :twisted:
LS: Sweet. :cool: That's what I'm talkin' about.
Anon: which loud vocal fanbases???
LS: NLG, KMc and KeMo, if I had to wager a guess.
LS: Well, shit. Is the crewmember the woman who unleashed this hell upon Prospect in the first place?
TS: No it is not. This crew member has been sympathetic to the situation an actress was placed in. Yes, she said NO to Guza and Steve... :twisted:
Guest: Where is JT in all of this?
LS: I think he's one of the people who is supportive of one side, but isn't in the thick of things.
TS: La Scrubbie, You never disappointment me. Yes, JT is one of the sheep... :twisted:
LS: Would I be wrong in assuming that JT is laying low because he's thinking ahead, so to speak?
TS: I believe he is laying low due to his brother... :twisted:
LS: OK, that sucks. :lol:
LS: I always have a hard time understanding how real-life conflict translates onscreen. :-? It seems so crazy to me.
In terms of precautions, will we be seeing a shift of storyline to prepare for a "new direction" that plays into KeMo's punishment? When it comes to IR and NLG, will their characters continue to be AWOL? Where is Frons is on all of this? And does this all stem from the fact that these four individuals are openly against the juice?
Guest: My guess. Kimberly is taking a strong stance against the Monavie at the studio and is under pressure from Burton to stop it. Kemo along with NLG and Ingo support her. Kelly's story is going to be affected somehow.
And JT is on Burton's side.
Am I right?
LS: Flip it. NLG, Ingo and KeMo have taken a strong stance, along with KMc. But they're the ones taking a hit.
JT is laying low because his brother's in on the juice.
I just want to know what the creative/money-making juice gimmick is, and how it will play out onscreen.

Jt and KMc are not fighting over it. JT has not articulated any position on it due to his brother and KMc.
KMc has so far resisted all efforts to have her participate in the juice.
and KM did not ask to work with SB.
Are you an insider or a poster clarifying the info?
both.
and that's the last I'm posting on it as I like SnD's board and don't want all holy hell to break out.
is there are reason that all hell would break loose concerning KMC and JT?
No I'm not referring to them - I mean the larger issue
I follow that part -- next question -- if Kelly and Kimberly have good relationships with Frons, is he aware that the juice makes decisions at GH? Is he concerned? What can be done dissolve the GH juice culture?/span>
He is not as aware as he should be on this issue.
and now I really will stop.
Please anything on NS3 I will not mention the juic stuff. Pretty please?
I have no news on that front for you - sorry.

ABC Anon: Now this is some entertaining reading....or should I say it is like reading the National Enquirer...the fact is that we don't allow there to be any soliciting on set or on the grounds owned by Disney. If an employee has been approached by another employee and/or anyone trying to "sell a product that they can discreetly report the situation and the person in violation with our policy would be reprimanded.
So this other stuff about 3 woman and 1 man is false because as it reads this so called in the know person doesn't seem to know our policy that has been in effect for 46 years.
Guest: Well given the Monavie shoot that was done in the building itself and that we have seen the damn juice on the show as well I have a hard time believing that.
Guest: You're kidding. Did you see Steve's Monavie video that was pulled? If not, you're one of the few.
A vidographer was let in, and filmed a viral video, starring a security guard, wardrobe person, and Steve yukking it up over Monavie. WHILE THE SHOW WAS TAPING IN THE BACKGROUND.
Guest: :lol: Seriously. We also know that the makeup lady is the one who got Steve involved in the juice and Steve said at his event before last that Guza's big into selling the juice. Several of the actors have their own websites for the juice. They use fan events as spring boards for selling the juice.
Guza wrote the juice into the show. GH actors are modeling juice shirts and used the studio for a juice shoot.
Please with the Disney will crack down on the juice and GH being used to promote it. :lol:
ABC Anon: The juice itself was never identified and the majority of viewers thought the product that was shown was V8 Fusion, my dear. However just because a product is used on the show does not give employees reign to solicit a product. We run a business and our employees are not allowed to sell anything on set, however if we do as a network want to endorse any product than we are in our right since it is our network.
Now if any company wants to use our grounds to film an advertisement and/or then they need to pay for that.
Just to let you know the MonaVie ad was not filmed on our lots, because believe me I would have seen that contract.

Anon: Uh it was clear it was filmed at Prospect. :-?
Anon: Please. Tropicana pulled advertising over the juice mention on the show. :lol:
Anon: Sorry to disagree, but it was. It's been pulled from youtube, but not before Canadian TV Guide, among other outlets mentioned it.
The GH set was clearly defined.
Steve posted 2 videos that day. One for Monavie Couture, which is still up, and the viral video.
Anon: Spin referred to it only as the acai berry. which we all know V8 have their own product with that. wouldn't tropicana believe they were referring to V8 since that is in their same competition league, not monavie.
Anon: Tropicana's ad, which aired during GH, talked specifically about the acai berry and even prounounced it carefully.
It disapeared after the juice mentions, which were brought to Tropicana's mention by a phone call, along with links to certain websites and videos.
ABC Anon: Guza asked if he could use the juice on the show which he was told by our offices that he could use the drink itself but there was to be NO mention of the product name.
Guest: So Guza went to legal to make sure he wouldn't get in trouble before inserting it into the script.
ABC Anon: If an employee wants to know about a product that another employee endorses than that is and issue between the people involved. Just like asking a co worker what kind of perfume you are wearing. That is different than soliciting to employees.
Guest: Someone is not listening very hard to the conversations in the corridors.
ABC Anon: I am not sure what is so hard to understand about this policy, most jobs have the same clause in their conduct policy handbook especially here in CA, perhaps you didn't read your conduct policy so you wouldn't know.
Guest: The conduct policy handbook does not apply to all employees of ABC Daytime. If you are in the legal department, as I suspect you are, you may want to ask some specific questions regarding the viral video and other issues.
This has become common knowledge outside of Prospect Studios.
Anon: Why was Prospect studios used in DC and SBr little youtube promo video of the juice? Youtube pulled the video Why?


Guza isn't playing his spiteful little games now.
Ratings suck.
Pratt is showing him up at AMC so he can't do the song and dance about how Pratt got the show going in the wrong direction and he's been unable to turn it around.
He's more than happy to do what Frons says right now because its a win-win for him.
If ratings go up, look he's turned it around.
If ratings go down he can look Frons in the eye and say "I did what you told me to do."
He's not playing spite games right now.
Has NS3 been greenlighted? Thanks.
As far as I know, yes.
They talk about it like its happening.
Twenty two episodes instead of thirteen is being discussed so that sounds like a go to me.
I haven't seen anything in writing about it but as far as I know its a go.,

There's a lot of good Scrubs stuff coming up including a flashback to a time when Philomena was out of the country and a VERY YOUNG ANNA had to take care of her sick daughter, on her own, for the first time.
Flashbacks?Really :D Thanks
There's going to be quite a few flashbacks leading up to THE WEDDING.
Its a really once in a lifetime opportunity on most soaps and especially on GH because there are so few long-term characters who have played the role since they were seven years old, and still have the same actor playing their mom, their dad, their uncle.

Patrick and Matt grow closer.

Does a pyramid scheme about a juice drink really have this kind of power behind the scenes? THAT'S NUTS!

Did Gloria Monty sell AMWAY for pete's sake? Did she get rich by turning Emma Samms and Tony Geary into fellow distributors? Is that how GH could afford location shoots!?!?!? Come On!

Is there going to be a Scientology outbreak there soon too? If you don't pray to Lord Xenu and denounce psychology than you can't be a mobster on GH getting lots of airtime?

Give me a break.

Dropping by to say hi, as always LOVE the info on TSH! Scrubs has ROCKED lately, and what an adorable baby they chose for Robin and Patrick :)
Robin, GHOFS

The Scrubs Hub November 7, 2008 at 7:51 AM  

Who knows what to believe, but my belief is that the whole Monavie thing is shady, and I stand by my statement of not supporting those who are involved with it.

They're not expected to be on today, but hopefully we'll get some unspoiled scenes. Cross your fingers!

Hi Robin! We've gotten some fantastic scenes these past 9 days, haven't we?! I think the big uptick in ratings for GH last week was due to the Scrubs wedding. And I'm glad they got a real baby to play Emma instead of a doll, she's sooo cute. :o)

Thanks everyone for the comments!

General Hospital Official Fan Site November 7, 2008 at 4:00 PM  

I totally agree, with you. Sometimes there's a shot of a baby, then a doll the rest of the time. and this baby really looks like a newborn, at least much closer than most babies we see on screen! Don't they have to be at least three months old or something? Anyway, I just can't get over how cute she is...I bet her mom is hovering very close while she is passed from actor to actor. SO cute, especially Mac :)
Robin
