SO Iím Annoyed......
Itís been a while since the show
has actually annoyed the heck out of me, but now theyíve done it, and I
have to share my frustration with all of you. Martha Byrne is out as
Lily....I know, how the heck did the show manage to lose a star like her?
Thereís good news for all of you, Iíve found out some details. Martha
was ready to re-sign with the show, continuing to take a pay cut. The
only thing that she wanted was to continue to be seen in the exact same
number of shows she was in last year. I guess the show decided that her
request was too much to ask, because they immediately started searching
for a new Lily. Honestly I never thought that she would actually be
gone. I thought they would agree, and she would be back on. Guess again,
everyone. Once Martha found out, all negotiations stopped, and she decided
to leave. The last scene in which she portrays Lily is when she gets
into a limo and drives off. When Lily returns, she will have a new face.
Reports have surfaced that they already recast the character...wow
that was fast.
You would think that this was the end of me being
annoyed. You guys know me, thereís more (there always is). A few weeks
ago, we lost one of the sexiest men on Daytime, Grayson is out as
Dusty...again this leaves me wondering how the show lost someone
that great. It must be hard during this time in television when so many
pay cuts are affecting soaps. Many actors have left, because they are no
longer making the money they used to. Honestly, if this continues, there
will no longer be actors on this show or others.
