Here’s the Scoop!
Does Johnny think Lisa is the next Claudia in the making? Lord knows the two both share the same psycho-ness. What will the crazy doc do when both Patrick and Terrell are busy singing for Robin? Karma’s a bitch and it’s smacking Lisa in the face. Will Johnny be there for her? Can we get on board with this potential pairing?
Speaking of karma… what will Liz say when Lucky tells her he’s fallen in love with Siobhan? Remember, Brook sees Elizabeth slipping a lab tech some cash. Why? Is there more karma coming Elizabeth’s way? There are RUMORS that when Sam calls for her pregnancy test results, Elizabeth lies to her. If these RUMORS are true, are the writers doing to Liz what they did to Sam a few years ago? Remember, some of Sam’s spotty writing back then was due to Kelly Monaco’s contract status and with Rebecca Herbst being written out, can these writers only write crap for their female characters when they have one foot out the door?

Poll Position: How Magazine Polls Prove General Hospital is Run By Blithering Idiots Re: Becky HerbstBy Jamey Giddens on January 21, 2011
Since numerous insiders have told me the dying industry we love pays absolutely no attention to us pesky "online fans" (Yeah, because a paid focus group attendee provides such a better barometer than someone who takes the time to name themself Liason69 or JaSamlover and engage with other diehard fans online), I decided to check out where ousted General Hospital star Rebecca Herbst (Liz) fell in the magazine polls for their Feb 1, 2011 issues. Now remember these polls came out before the announcement that the 13-year GH veteran and new mommy had been unceremoniously fired for "storyline-dictated" reasons.
According to this week's Soap Opera Digest poll, Herbst was selected GH's Favorite Actress. Yep, that's right, enough Port Charles lovers logged onto www.soapoperadigest.com/polls to select underdog Herbst as their fave. Oh, it doesn't stop there, Wanna know who Digest readers selected their fave couple? Jason and Elizabeth, aka Liason, won that honor and they haven't been together in a dog's age. Imagine that.

I'm heartbroken over the news about Becky. She is absolutely irreplaceable; an incredible actress and a phenomenal person. I'm confident the future has brilliant things in store for her! Right now, I'm just speechless and deeply disappointed. J

On today’s Daytime Confidential emergency podcast Luke, Jamey, Jillian and Regan dive into the shocking news that CBS has fired Barbara Bloom, General Hospital fired Rebecca Herbst and Shelley Hennig and Jay Kenneth Johnson are leaving Days of our Lives.
The DC gang delves into CBS’ decision to get rid of daytime executive Barbara Bloom. Jamey dishes what he’s hearing about what led to the axe falling and recounts how a CBS representative called him furious for breaking the story. What will her departure mean for The Talk, The Young and Restless and The Bold and The Beautiful?
The other shocking news that Jamey broke on January 18 is that General Hospital had fired 13-year vet Rebecca Herbst. In statement, ABC later announced that the decision was “storyline dictated.” Jamey and Regan react, wondering what kind of storyline would dictate the departure of such a popular character. Why was Elizabeth wasted on Nikolas? Why couldn’t Elizabeth be the one to reveal Siobhan’s connection to the Balkan? What will happen to Elizabeth’s children?
What is happening to Days of our Lives’ young adult cast? This week it was revealed Shelley Hennig and Jay Kenneth Johnson are pulling up stakes and leaving Salem. The departure of the these two actors, with Mark Hapka, effectively wipes out Philip/Melanie/Nathan/Stephanie storyline. Should DAYS recast the characters or will the introduction of other characters fill the void?
With all of this week’s crazy developments it’s no wonder the DC gang is all worked up! READ MORE
