Evening News

McKenzie Westmore blogs on the end of PASSIONS
"I guess I never posted before about a farewell to PASSIONS because I didnt really want to believe that it was over until we actually filmed a final scene. Well my friends, that day has come. It was a very sad day in Harmony, a town in which we all must say goodbye to. The last and final episode was shot today and emotions were very high as we were all so upset to say goodbye to one another and our second home of 4024 Radford Ave. I will never forget my days in Paris; filming in oxnard; the boat (and of course the tango) with Galen; and so many more memorable scenes. its still not completely sinking in (but the tears are) that this is all over. But, all good things must come to an end and I want to thank all of you for your amazing love and support through the years! you have been the BEST fans a soap could ever ask for and your loyalty to me as an actress and the show has always been appreciated! I will continue to keep this site up and running so please continue to stop by because even though we have to say goodbye to Sheridan Crane, McKenzie Westmore is continuing on! i will continue to keep you posted on my latest projects, charities and of course the family! and I will stop in for a post or chat every now and again!
So Bon Voyage Passions, Hello World!"

AFTRA Splits From SAG; Will Negotiate Own Deal
On the eve of what was supposed to be a joint campaign to negotiate a new contract for actors, the American Federation of Television and Radio Artists has split ranks with the Screen Actors Guild and will negotiate on its own on behalf of its 70,000 members. AFTRA represents actors, including those in daytime soaps; singers and recording artists, dancers, announcers, reality show performers and other categories. It has also organized some basic cable series, such as FX's RESCUE ME. The union is miffed that SAG recently approached the cast of THE BOLD AND THE BEAUTIFUL in an effort to get that shop to decertify AFTRA in favor of SAG, according to AFTRA. SAG represents 120,000 actors in television and movies.
