One Life To Live
After last week’s announcement by ABC Daytime about the cancellation of long running and beloved soaps, 'All My Children' (AMC) and 'One Life to Live' (OLTL), I posted an article to the soap fans on my site, Red Carpet Closet entitled: 'Soap Fans, What the Heck Happened?' Well, they came out in droves and I heard them loud and clear. It is no secret that fans of the genre are notoriously supportive of the shows and the actors. So how did such a rapid decline in the ratings happen? One name kept coming up again and again as a reason for their demise: Brian Frons, president of Daytime f...

An Open Letter To Paul Abdul: Leaving 'Idol' Is A Bad Idea

Paula Abdul
Dear Paula Abdul,

I am writing on behalf of the Shelley Longs, Geri Halliwells, Wayne Rogers and Sherry Stringfields of the world when I give you three simple words of advice regarding your decision to leave American Idol: Don't do it.

I'm not really sure why you'd need me to tell you this, but based on the rumors flying across the Internet and the statements of your own manager, you're really thinking about leaving the most successful television series of the decade over some sort of personal insult. Or is it money? Nobody can really be sure what's going through your pill-filled head...

Joel McHale
You can't help but laugh, and almost pee your pants sometimes, when watching Joel McHale on E! Television's The Soup as he endlessly makes fun of celebrities with absolutely no remorse.

About his hosting job on The Soup, Joel McHale has said, "I've always made fun of television shows and how ridiculous some celebrity behavior is, but I never thought my job would be commenting on it. There's a side of me th...

Days Of Our Lives
Back in 2004 a documentary-- not completely unlike Trekkies but for the soap opera crowd-- began filming in Los Angeles, interviewing the stars and fans alike of Days of our Lives. In honor of the fortieth anniversary of the show being on air (as well as the producer/director's college thesis project), this documentary sought to look deep into the psyches of the people who dedicated the majority of their lives to following this show. At an hour a day, five days a week, starting at a time before TiVo, it was true dedication to devote one's interest to such a show. What was found, though, ...
