When the news that The CW was developing a spinoff of Beverly Hills, 90210 was still in its infancy, we asked you which daytime stars you'd like to see on the new show. Alas, neither Van Hansis nor Kirsten Storms has made the jump to good old West Bev as of yet, but both Drew Tyler Bell and the bra-zilliant Michael Graziadei have booked air time on the teen soap. So in keeping with tradition, now that news has been broken that a possible Melrose Place update could soon turn up on our screens, which daytime stars would you like to see living it up at Amanda Woodward's motel-style, SoCal apartment complex?
TV Guide Canada 's Nelson Branco seems to think The Young and the Restless just may have a spin-off on its hands, if the show decides to spin of Christian LeBlanc's Michael Baldwin and capitalize on the character's uncanny penchant for being able to rein in difficult women. What would they call it? The Bitch Whisperer.
TVG: I like to refer to Michael as the bitch whisperer because he’s the only person in soaps who can effectively communicate with, and understand bitches! And speaking of the bitches, why don’t they pair Phyllis and Michael together anymore?
CL: I know, right? Michelle and I do have a couple of scenes coming up. It’s hard when you have new writers come in. It takes a while for them to fully understand all the intricate relationships and friendships these characters have on the show right away. I miss working opposite her, for sure. I would never keep Michelle or Greg out of any episode because they are simply box office gold.
Okay you knew it was coming. Now that the Idiots In Charge of The-Soap-Opera-Formerly-Known-as-Days-of-Our-Lives have let the phenomenal Blake Berris go, I decided to start out doing a Wishful Casting about where Berris should end up, but it turned into more of an analysis of which soaps are managing to set things up for their next generation the right way, and which ones are getting it wrong, dead wrong.
Much of the daytime industry is experiencing a serious drought in terms of talented, young stars who can actually, you know, act. Save for The Young and the Restless, One Life to Live and General Hospital, the under 30 set at most soaps is pretty much comprised of rejects from the Pamela Anderson School of Acting and Pantomime. I'll start with the soaps in most need of help and work my way up. READ MORE
