I have been writing this column for some time now and
each week it becomes more of a challenge. Last week a rep from one of the networks whose name I will not mention left feedback implying and I quote : “the anonymous author of this article has pulled this accusation out of thin air.” Did I, no I didn’t. I was given the information from a source and when I get any information may it be true or false I report it. This is after all a gossip, rumor and speculation column for your reading pleasure. This is the same network that canceled All My Children and One Life to Live after they said it was not going to happen and then in a nano second without much notice to the cast and crew called a meeting and gave them the news that the shows were canceled.
Then it the same feedback this same person writes and I quote: “any info you are getting leaked to you is copy right material and absolutely should not be revealed until air date.” ……. No you are wrong ….. but don’t leak any information just yet. Do I need to say more?
I admit some things I post turn out to be false but as I have always said I give you what I get, whether it be true or false and there has been many of both. It has come to my attention that many forums are changing formats or have shut down because they are running scared. One person in particular has been brown nosing to certain PTB giving out these web url’s and has made many and I mean many fans quite upset. Some fans love to know what is forth coming so they can decide if they want to watch that episode or not and other fans do not want to know and that is their choice. Hard ball is being played by these so-called executives or errand persons depends how you look at it and the networks are locking down. The cast and crew have been put on alert regarding giving out too much information or dropping hints on twitter. And lets not forget the publications who give out headlines that are no where close to happening just to up the sales of their publication.
People have been scolded for leaving spoilers on twitter and have been given warnings. This is fact. But what I find even more interesting is the same people who slap the hands of these people are giving out leaks as well on their twitter. But since they are the boss I guess that’s OK.
I probably will not be back for some time if at all. I will not make up information that is not my style. I used to love writing this column as did many of you love reading it. But (1) this is not fun anymore (2) people are cruel and vicious (3) daytime isn’t what it used to be . (4) It’s sad to see story lines repeated over and over again. (5) It’s just not fun anymore.
Some of you were loyal and for that I thank you and some of you were rude for the nasty language used here and that is one the reason the comment section is closed down. I have feelings just like anyone else and to read some of the things people say who don’t even know me but yet come every week faithfully to say these cruel things to me and the other columnists is just plain vicious and down right cruel.
Daytime fans are some of the most loyal and yet most vocal. If a story is not to your liking you bash the show or the writers. We all have our opinions and that is our perrogative, one reader in “my opinion” hit it right on the money in the GH section written by Martini Kitty ———> go here scroll down to the first response (Matilda) and see if you agree or disagree.
I used to love writing this column but as I said this is not fun any more.
I have decided to get on with my life and not worry about getting this column up on time because some reader has written me and bitched for not having it on time or a day late or missing a week because I needed to tend to something personal.
I miss my life so……I am going back to enjoying it.
Sincerely, Loose Lips
