News for the week of 02-Sep-2013

by Carol Banks Weber

Tyler Christopher (Nikolas) got a part in a new movie, Blackbird. Gina Prince-Bythewood (The Secret Life Of Bees) is set to direct the movie she wrote, starring Danny Glover, Nate Parker, and Gugu Mbatha-Raw. Blackbird is going to be about a young Grammy artist in love with a police officer, and how their different careers get in the way.

Twitter’s where it’s at for the latest news and gossip. Stars don’t bother to make announcements via publicists and soap publications anymore—unless it’s really big, like a pregnancy. Kristen Alderson (Kiki; ex-Starr) tweeted August 29 about her impending Lasik eye surgery (went well) and her singing the National Anthem at a Dodgers v. Cubs game, August 27. Boyfriend Chad Duell (Michael), BFF Kirsten Storms (Maxie) and her husband Brandon Barash (ex-Johnny) were there at the baseball game for moral support.

Jeffrey Vincent Parise (Carlos; ex-Det. Sullivan, DOOL) comes on mid-September to make it a little difficult for Sabrina to continue on with Patrick. He plays someone she knew, connected to the underworld.

Gossip for the week of 02-Sep-2013

As much as it distresses Sean Kanan (A.J.) to keep hearing, the rumor remains that TPTB could be writing his character out in a most distasteful way, most notably from Daytime Dish. Blame Happy New Years [August 27, 2013]: “All my source heard in July was a SK exit was ‘under consideration.’ There is something very weird going on there as she cannot get a straight answer on winter plans for AJ…. Another here broke the SK news some time ago so they may have a better handle on what went down.”

Ellie gets a story of her own when her family background comes out. There’s more to her than meets the eye. Maybe she’s the long-lost daughter of one of the main characters. Maybe there’s a reason she spent an inordinate amount of time with Franco on the GH roof last week.

Britt’s baby does not survive. But Sabrina’s may! She could be with child next.

A.J. is the obvious choice as Connie’s murderer. But someone else is setting him up, and it’s not Ava. Look to Morgan, who gets more hands-on with Kiki. Most likely, TPTB want to scapegoat him as a mini-Sonny to make Michael and Kiki look like tragic, star-crossed lovers.

Kirsten Storms (Maxie) may have extended her contract, as several insiders informed Gossiping Pens [July 3, 2013]. But for how long? “Initial sources were suggesting to us that Storms would be exiting the show sometime in 2014, and while we’re told that Storms will still eventually be exiting, the time-frame on when that will happen has obviously changed. As you know with daytime television, things can often shift and shift quickly, and as blogs oftentimes do get things wrong, unlike some of those blogs we have no problem in admitting when we do get something wrong – and we most certainly got this wrong.”
