What DAYS Needs to Do If It Wants to Stay on Past 2010 Pt. I: The Hortons and Bradys Generation NextBy Jamey Giddens on March 27, 2009
It's no secret Days of Our Lives is my heart. Like Tara to Scarlett, Llanfair to Viki and the Promises Treatment Center in Malibu to Lindsay Lohan, DAYS is home to me, which is why it pains me to find the land of my childhood, fanboy dreams war-ravaged, and overrun with some strange cow wandering about chewing cud.
I wrote last week how the show was actually watchable again, well, watchable won't keep DAYS on the air past 2010. In years past I never worried about whether NBC-U-Later-Soaps would kill Days of Our Lives, because I knew CBS or ABC would readily fight to the death grab up the most buzzed about soap in the last 20 years of daytime television. Thanks to the woeful state of the U.S. economy, coupled with DAYS being written by someone who would make the top brass at AIG shake their heads and go "tsk, tsk, tsk", I no longer have the quiet comfort that Frons or Bloom will pick up DAYS once it's cut by NBC. Hell, Mickey Mouse and Tiffany are having a hard enough times keeping the soaps already on their network lineups afloat, why would they consider bringing DAYS to the table in the shape its in?

The hottest web series online last year is getting the big screen treatment. TV Guide Canada's Nelson Branco reveals Imaginary Bitches, the smash You Tube dramedy from creator Andrew Miller, and starring his main squeeze, no, not Heather, Eden Riegel, is being turned into a feature film. Congrats to the cast and crew behind this amazing show!
Daytime mob moll-turned-sometimes same-sexer Tamara Braun(Reese) talked with SheWired.com about all the K-Raziness happening with her character on All My Children. She also revealed that she has quite the potty mouth, a girl after my own filthy heart!
Tracy E. Gilchrist: So, regarding Reese, I think after a few drinks, everyone gets a little friendly with everyone. So is Bianca overreacting or what?
Tamara Braun: Well, you know, I think Bianca's reactions are valid, you know. She has a right to her reaction, it was the night before her wedding, what the f**** was Reese thinking? And you kissed the...oh, you're going to have to draw a squiggly line through that aren't you?
TEG: Oh we used that here. You're okay.
TB: Are you allowed to say f***?
TEG: Oh we say f***. Yeah, all the time.
TB: Oh I love f***! Okay. That's one of my favorites. (LAUGHS)
TEG: So, if we were doing Inside the Actors Studio that would be your favorite curse word?
Regan asked you guys earlier if you were ready for a Rendall Redux and from the looks of things, DC readers aren't trying to feel a reunion between Ryan and Kendall on All My Children, but I sure am! Those promos are taking me right back to the magic that was Rendall! Alicia Minshew and Cameron Mathison have always sparkled together onscreen, and they still do.
It was an abyssmal mistake to ever inject Green-Me (Rebecca Budig) into Ryan and Kendall's orbit. As for Zach (Thorsten Kaye), my ability to tolerate The Cambias That Ate Pine Valley died with Myrtle Fairgate (the late Eileen Herlie).
Zach is a Grade-A jackass, who thinks he should never pay for anything he does! He shot Kendall's poor, unaborted brother through the head and showed about as much remorse as a celebutante after her sex tape is "leaked". READ MORE
Was All My Children's Reese Williams (Tamara Braun) the inspiration for the movie Dazed and Confused? TV Guide Canada's Nelson Branco thinks it could be the case. On the heels of Reese's not-so-sapphic smooch with tad pole-donor Zach (Thorsten Kaye) ruining her marriage to Bianca (Eden Riegel), that heifer is now buddying up with Pine Valley villain Adam Chandler (David Canary). If Reese keeps this up she's gonna have to cancel her subscription to Curve magazine! Check out more from this week's Nelson Ratings here.
TV Guide Canada's Nelson Branco raves about All My Children's Eden Riegel in the latest edition of his Nelson Ratings. Unlike that nasty piece of work Zach Slater, Branco was pleased to see Binks get in touch with her inner Erica last week. Let's hope out beloved Binks doesn;t take Dead Greenlee's Curve on her way out of town, we hear it's a doozy!
