    Michael, with all the new series starting, how about setting up a schedule with all the cast members so we can be sure to follow the stars when they first air online? This way viewers won’t forget as so many of our favorite actors and actresses are jumping all over the web. Kind of exciting!

    Seriously Ashlee? It’s bad enough you have two E’s in your name, but being a nasty witch too?

    I am so excited to see our soap stars branch out into other areas; especially ones we haven’t seen them for in some time. I persoanlly can’t wait to see Beacon Hill and
    Tainted Dreams. Does anyone know when these two new soaps will be airing? Will they both be on Hulu?

    Considering how the new OLTL gives her so little to do, it’s good that she’s finding other opportunities whenever possible.

    (Would it kill Pepperman and the writers to give the ZZZzzzzz Team, err I mean the A Team, a few episodes off and spend more time on the only one of Viki’s kids that’s currently on the show?)
