Evening News

Soap Opera Weekly: Blogging With Carolyn Hinsey: "I had the honor of attending Martha Byrne's goodbye party at Blondies Friday night, and I do mean honor. WOW was there a lot of love in that room. First of all, about 100 more people showed up than Martha anticipated, so the place was bursting at the seams. There was lots of speculation about who will be replacing her as Lily (LOVING's Noelle Beck? Michelle Pfeiffer's sister Dedee Pfeiffer?!), although all agreed no one could ever "replace" Martha. The tears and speeches flowed, as well as the disappointment voiced by a few actors that ATWT Executive Producer Chris Goutman was not at work on Martha's last day. In between all the hugs and well wishes, there was a real sadness about where ATWT and GL are headed — and whether these actors will even be there a year from now to see it. For more on the party — and which big star's contract is up next — see the next issue of Weekly."

They’re there to have fun and learn how to dance. It should be something really personal."

AfterElton: For one glorious season in 1976, Sid & Marty Krofft answered the prayers of kids who believed that the 60's Batman series just wasn't gay enough.
