    I am delighted for Rebecca even though I never heard of this show. She is smart not to seek another soap job. Cameron Mathison is doing well in his entertainment story gigs. Rebecca was one of my favorites.

    Always have liked Rebecca in anything that I have seen her in. Have watched amazing water homes, her stint co-hosting the view and a lifetime movie The Perfect Child. She is an incredible actress and portrayed Greenlee Smythe with such depth – showing her strength, but still exhibiting her as vunerable. The other great thing about Rebecca is that she was technically such a great actress that she always made the scenes better whether she was with excellent actors such as David Canary, Vincent Irizarry or Thorsten Kaye. Or a poor actor like Cameron Matthieson.

    Good luck to her in her new venture!!!

    Loved her as Greenlee. I am just not interested in boring talk shows and all talk shows are boring.


  4. Sandy says:

    I really miss Rebecca portraying Greenlee on AMC. I wish she would go back to acting as she was such a multi-talented actress. One can only hope! Good luck Rebecca.

    I think this is awesome for Rebecca. But I do wish she’d come back to the daytime soaps. I would love to see her on DAYS or Y&R if AMC isn’t an option for her.


    jimd(leave it to beaver) replied

    Id like her to play Taylor…Nicoles sister…if she was on Days!!!


    Scott (ATWT Fan) replied

    I’d rather see Natalia Livingston return as Taylor, and Rebecca be brought in as Sarah Horton. Or even Kelly Sullivan as Sarah Horton!

    jimh(leave it to beaver) replied

    If E.D. wasnt returning as Kristen, i believe Kelly Sullivan would be the perfect replacement…i loved Natalie as Taylor but if not available for whatever reason, then i think Rebecca would be good in that role…i wouldnt mind seeing her play Sarah but i sometimes feel that tptb want us to forget Maggie had other children besides Danny Boy!!!


    Scott (ATWT Fan) replied

    No no. Only Eileen should be Kristen. Sorry. I don’t see anyone replacing her, especially if DAYS waited almost 14 years for her to come back.

    JUst looked at the schedule for the Better Show for next week — Rebecca’s first week. Josh Duhamel is the guest on Wednesday, September11th!!!!
    Must admit Leo and Greenlee are my most favorite soap couple ever!! Now here’s my concern, the Better show does not air in my local market until it starts on the Hallmark station on September 30th. Guess it’s on in some select tv areas now and has been throughout past years. That’s why,like another poster, I had not heard of it before. So, if you get the Hallmark channel you should be able to get this show after Sept 30th. But more importantly, hope the web site has lots of clips from Josh’s appearance after the 11th. Please everybody ….. let’s try to support Rebecca and make her show a success so that she will remain on the air.

    I loved Rebecca on this show. She is a natural and she has great chemistry with her co-star JD Roberto. I can’t wait til this show goes national on Hallmark. Rebecca should have had her own show like this ages ago! My hope is that this only brings bigger & better opportunities for her, (which she so deserves!) For example, I would love to see her reunited with her former AMC co-star Josh Duhamel IN A MOVIE!!! Why hasn’t anyone suggested/made this happen yet???! It’s a no-brainer!!!
