"In the soap opera world, the fans are viciously attached to their characters," Batali said. "Daytime TV fans weren't quite ready for us when they started, but I think we made some moves, and a lot of people that used to watch some of the shows find them at different times, and now we're part of that same beautiful daytime pop culture which makes us very proud."
ONE LIFE TO LIVE legend Robin Strasser shared on thoughts on Twitter about Wright's guest appearance which seemed to match what many of our followers were tweeting:
@LauraWright is WRONG praising the Chew, confusing protecting her own job with love/fun/or that bad food. 800 jobs lost when OLTL cancelled. My Toxic tweet now out there, I'll add that I think @LauraWright is talented, beautiful, and strong. Nobody's perfect-#Chew is the proof. RESPECT for the DAYTIME AUDIENCES and their enthusiastic loyal support of SOAPS should be part of JOB DESCRIPTION for working at any network
Note: @LauraWright isn't the actresses actual Twitter account. It's @lldubs
Wright later appeared on ABC 7 here in New York.
What do you think? Smart move for Wright to promote GH, her winery and herself on THE CHEW? Unhappy about the appearance? Let us know your thoughts.
