Luke has already begun the mourning process and as most fans already know, Rebecca Budig (Greenlee, All My Children) is heading out of Pine Valley. The actress confirmed the news herself in an interview with SOAPnet.com.
"It's true," Rebecca said with a little bit of sadness. "I'll be leaving 'All My Children." When asked why, Rebecca explained, "Well, my life is in California (where she relocated after leaving "AMC" in '06). I had hoped it would be a lot easier than it was to live bi-coastally. But it's really tough -- our (she and husband Bob Guiney) life is enmeshed there. We put down roots there."

I would be willing to bet that the most terrible words for daytime executives is "lapsed viewer." One might think that "cancellation" would be at the top of that list, but when a show goes off the air it is essentially a period at the end of sentence with everyone eventually moving on to something else. One also might think "lost viewers" might rank high, but the top brass is keenly aware that the television world has changed; viewers who have exited stage right have either different things to do or are far more selective with their viewing choices, two things that often go hand in hand.
As it turns out, the "lapsed viewer" is the elusive "independent" or "undecided" voters of the daytime world. Not unlike presidential hopefuls, network executives, producers and head writers stumble all over themselves to reel these people in to a new show or back into the fold of an old one. Their efforts vary from sincere to misguided to empty lip service depending on their audience or agenda. READ MORE

I promised myself I would say nothing more about this subject, but after posting the spoilers and watching last week's episodes, I cannot keep my mouth shut anymore! So Danielle is on a rant! Look out!
Greenlee and Ryan, Part 5, WHY! WHY! This couple has been forced on this fan from day one. Greenlee 'wanted' (and I use that term loosely) Ryan only for herself because she was a horny teenager who was dumped by Scott Chandler, until she met her soulmate Leo. She tortured Gillian and any other woman who came across Ryan for kicks! Greenlee never loved Ryan the way Gillian did and she never loved anyone the way she loved Leo. The couple got together after Leo's death only because Leo and Ryan were best friends. Yeah right. Greenlee and Ryan are about has good to watch as a 24 hour marathon of Flavor of Love.
In my real life, I work for a law firm where I deal with workers' compensation and often I have client's who 'shop for whore doctors'. Meaning the client wants a doctor who will do what they want, will give them the medicine they don't need, the doctor is a pill pusher and the client becomes an addict. Greenlee is Ryan's whore doctor as far as this blogger is concerned.
