News Round-up

On the shooting of Michael Corinthos: "I hated it. I thought it was awful, because I am a mother in real-life. I have two children. My son looks very much like Dylan Cash (ex-Michael). So, it was tough for me. But it’s soap opera and I understand why we do have these tragedies."

Marcia McCabe returns to daytime

"I must say, however, that I am a bit surprised at the normalcy at which this lesbian relationship is progressing. In real life after three dates the gals would be buying a house together. Given the rapidity of time in the lesbian world, in soap opera land by the first half hour break the pair should be married, pregnant, cheating on one another, divorced, arrested for the other’s murder, jailed, released and then working at Pine Lawn hospital as a brain surgeon like every other character on the soap who started out as a prostitute, troubled teen, drug dealer or split personality. God, sometimes I wish I lived in soap opera land."
