This made me smile. Anyone wanting to read a nice, humorous story likening Soap Opera Mafia Don Ken "The Soap Killer" Corday to a Thanksgiving Turkey should read this article by soap journo Mary Montanari of Examiner. com.
I couldn't think of a more fitting analogy for the Days of Our Lives golf pro if I tried, and trust me I have. In fact the next time I read a press release, I mean, interview featuring Corday I am simply going to imagine him goobling like a simple, clueless fowl.
"My actors are like spokes, GOOBLE, GOOBLE! Dena Higley can write, GOOBLE! GOOBLE! Molly Burnett is the star of the show! GOOBLE!"
The dust hasn't settled yet and already the news of Days of Our Lives firing stars Deidre Hall and Drake Hogestyn has set off a frenzy. Yahoo TV blog writer Rebecca Detken stated:
As much as I hate to say it, I’m not sure if the soaps can be saved, but in staying true to the genre's form, a dramatic death is inevitable.
This comes from a fan and ardent protector of the soap industry who also asked,
Can you imagine the town of Salem without Marlena (aka "Doc") and John?
No truer line has been uttered. Read Detken's entire blog posting on Ken Corday's grotesque solution for his birthright.
Take your best shot! My humble attempt: "Save yourself John! It may not be to late for you to survive!"
Days of Our Lives: Drake Hogestyn, Deidre Hall, Thaao Penghlis & Ken Corday Interviewed In Australia.By Brian Peel on November 20, 2008
In light of the all the ongoing turmoil on Days of Our Lives right now, take a minute to watch this video. It almost makes me want to vomit. You know sometimes in life, words do come back to haunt you in some way, shape or form. In October 2007, Deidre Hall, Drake Hogestyn, Thaao Penghlis and wait for it...Ken Corday, were interviewed by Australian show host Kerri-Anne.
It's almost like a complete 360. Deidre talks about her love for the role she plays as Marlena, while Drake and Deidre talk about their highlights on the show and their favourite character moments. But wait for Ken Corday. He starts his 'speech' by saying he was 14 when Days of Our Lives was on, and it was not cool to watch soap opera's. He also goes on to say that he felt honoured to continue the legacy his parents left him. Complete and utter vomit. READ MORE
If you thought yesterday's John and Marlena tribute video was good, then wait until you see this one. So many moments, so many memories. Boy, it's just all too dramatic. I don't think I can handle anymore.
Ken Corday's head scratcher of the soap millenium decision to gut his two biggest stars, while seemingly courting ever actor from Passions, even the chimp, has the mainstream press taking notice. Notorious gossip blogger Perez Hilton posted about the firings of Deidre Hall and Drake Hogestyn and the New York Post also weighed in. It seems unlike the late James Reilly, the only time the team of Corday and Dena Higley know how to generate mainstream press is when they make colassal blunders. This thing is gonna get ugly.
