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.

    I’m very sorry to hear this and I guess politics play way too much in our lives in everything! I will very much miss reading your column. Good luck to you.

    • Vaneda says:

      Loose Lips, I am going to miss your column but I don’t blame you for taking a break. Having some positive feedback and then have the negative feedback can be overwhelming. I wish you well in whatever you do but I do hope you comeback some day. God Bless!

  2. carol says:

    I have loved reading your column for years. You will be missed. Thank you.

  3. john riddle says:

    If you won’t mention his name, then let me.
    It’s Nathan Varni. He has been on a tear for the past week trying to shut down anyone that is getting any information from the set.

    Another website was forced to shut down its insider post because of it.

    He’s really trying to control what is being spoiled.

    • Matilda says:

      Mr Varni is trying to control more than just what is spoiled. He and his company are trying to control speech. It is a sad day when a bunch of network hacks try to shut down open and honest discourse and that is exactly what they are doing.

      I have worked in the communications field for 25 years, I have done a lot of crisis communications work in particular, and I can see what they are doing from a mile away. It isn’t about containing spoilers, it is about containing speech. They don’t care as much about spoilers getting out as they care about the comment sections that accompany them and the additional social media platforms that they feed. Network tools like Mr. Varni can’t come out too aggressively against people who write straight opinion pieces, that would be too Third Reichy. But by shutting down spoiler sites and columns under the guise of containing proprietary information, they can achieve their goal of shutting down fair and open speech that is critical of their product. But remember the old saying, first they came for my neighbor and then they came for me.

      LL, you will be missed and I hope after some time off you decide to return. I have nothing but respect for your decision and the manner in which you have conducted yourself, now and as always with your column. I wish you nothing but the best and thank you for all the good info and great work.

      • Lisa says:

        I agree with you Matilda. It is beyond sad what is happening.

      • nancy dillingham says:

        I, too, agree. LL, I appreciate your column–and the hard work you put into it. I hope you will get a good rest, get energized, and continue to write. Don’t let TPB get you down! Their day of reckoning is coming.

  4. Susan says:

    I too will miss your column. It has been part of my Sunday ritual. Wish you would continue.

  5. Mary says:

    I am going to miss your column soooo much! I very much appreciate the time and effort you put in to making it a quality product. A few people can ruin things for so many others. Kick it with your family and friends and enjoy yourself. I do hope we will be reading you again at some point in the future. THANK YOU

  6. louisa says:

    And then there is a certain actress who tries with a whole PR team to silence everybody who is not impressed. Sad, sad, sad but I respect your decision. They did that on several boards and most of them carved in, I rather like that you stop instead of writing what they want you to write.

  7. Daisy says:

    Loved reading your column and appreciated your efforts but understand your reasons for giving it up. If it isn’t fun why bother. Best to you!

  8. Observer says:

    Wow!
    I hate so much seeing this column becoming yet another victim of what’s really going on.
    Someone is running scared and it’s not Loose Lips.
    It’s amazing how mere ”gossip”/”rumor” can get under someone’s skin so much. Someone needs a dictionary!
    There’s big bucks on the table here and some will go to any lengths to zip anyone who tosses a spark on the dollar.
    Not a worry, LL, we thank you! Never fear that many viewers have a darn good idea how dirty and underhanded this business is. Those that choose not to believe that can just go on sticking their heads up deeper and higher. There are many INTELLIGENT, insightful viewers out there, much to the dislike of many. Your columns and the reactions to them proved it.
    Enjoy life! I’ve been off the soaps since the summer and don’t regret it a SINGLE BIT!
    Kudos to you, Loose Lips!

  9. Ruthie says:

    I am not one to leave a note, but I will really miss”loose lips”. I enjoy these columns almost as much as GH, which I admit I have been watching since it was 30 minutes and black and white. So, to those blue meanies I say good grief people it is only a tv show, get over it.
    P.P. can anyone tell me what happened to Sage, did he pass on?

  10. Justified says:

    I looked forward to reading you column every Sunday morning. It was juicy and full of fun. Too bad the morons that run these shows don’t want the fans to enjoy their shows. I no longer watch Y&R because it is just boring and horrible now. I think DAYS has suffered as of late. B&B is OK, but relies on too few storylines. GH has been the best lately, but they have too many characters now. I think the soaps are all on notice by the fans: Entertain or face extinction.

  11. B&B SUCKS! says:

    This pisses me off so much! WHY GIVE IN LL? No one is afraid of the whore & her ass kissers. The show is a POS, pond scum as is the actress & her ass kisser’s. You may not always have the right info but it was appreciated and a lot of times you were spot on. These nasty, vile, scum sucking, non acting,ppl need to get a clue. They ARE NOT REVERED or LOVED. THEY ARE HATED! I do hope this show gets cancelled and these PPL end up on the unemployment line. Sorry that you could’nt take it LL! There is a lot of us out here that would be glad to take your place and tell the UGLY TRUTH!. Hope you reconsider and come back!

    • Yes B&B Sucks! says:

      I agree with you. I know for a fact this actress on B&B is doing everything possible to get more screen time for herself which caused a few legacy characters to leave. She’d better be careful because there are a lot of porn sites out there who features her porn scenes, as well as an interview written by an Italian newspaper from that person’s ex-husband about her affairs. I can’t say who because I am certain I will be attacked, but I think you get the jist of it. This person is NOT well-liked by certain cast members, and has had many an affair with co-stars. If you guessed who I am referring to, Google that person’s name & you’ll see I am telling the truth. I wouldn’t be at all surprised if a certain Head Writer is part of her many conquests. As they say, Life Imitates Art!

      • angeleye93 says:

        WOW, now that explains why she is so comfortable with being on screen half nude, it’s how she got her start. LOL. And them pumped up lips are not helping her look any younger.

  12. LEP says:

    Wow, what has happened to the First Amendment???? LL, THANK YOU for your service. Now…go on and enjoy your life. You deserve it. When enough of us follow suit — out of boredom, irritation, intelligence — there will be no more soaps, esp. GH, which is now creatively bankrupt.

    What they don’t realize is this: you are NOT the problem, the SHOWS are the problem. This kind of behavior on their part reeks of sheer desperation. They know we are becoming fed up and will shut down the critics in a misguided attempt to right the sinking ship. No GH, it is not LL, it is YOU, the ego-drunk producers and “writers.”

    As I say, this behavior from the shows is proof positive that THEY are running scared. LL, glad you are not giving in to them.

  13. Nejibana says:

    I have really enjoyed reading your column and it’s a shame that others have to ruin for other people. When people don’t like to hear the truth, they tend to retaliate because the truth hurts. Even if the truth hurts one doesn’t have to engage in such obnoxious behavior. But thank you for all the hard work that you have put in it. You will be missed.

  14. Trudy says:

    This is my favorite spot to pick up info on the show and yes I have seen the rude comments, some fans can be just downright nasty but we do love hearing from you..I so hope they AV would back off but I do agree with you..Kick back and enjoy life because the haters will always hate

  15. Judy says:

    I’m also going to miss reading
    your spoilers. They were a bright
    spot on my Sundays. I hope you do
    enjoy your life as I’m sure you will.
    Take care and may God bless you.

  16. Norma Gonzalez says:

    I’ve really enjoyed your column every week. It was something I really looked forward to. I’ll miss it but understand that you need to do what’s best for you. I wish you well

  17. Huntress Fan 101 says:

    Thanxxx LL. I am not surprised that you are being pressured and threatened. I am only surprised that it has taken this long to happen, and that the column lasted as long as it did.

    What I cannot figure is if all of the propaganda about Daytime’s ratings being UP, and the networks being happy with them, why is there a need to wrangle Tweets from Twitter, hashtags and internet traffic to try and count it into the ratings? Why are they threatened by spoilers? After all, EVERYONE is watching, right? These are LIVE viewers who are THRILLED with what they are seeing correct? So what difference would spoilers in gossip columns make? How could that possibly affect ratings or hurt the shows?

    Or could it be that the ratings are fiction? Very expensive fiction? I’ll let you all answer those questions for yourselves. You all are a bright crowd. I am sure you can figure it out.

  18. DanielStar says:

    I have enjoyed your column for the last couple of years and I am sorry to see you go. But I believe if you aren’t enjoying it, and it is more work than pleasure, leaving is for the best, but you will be missed.

  19. Dietra says:

    I’ve really enjoyed reading your column and will miss it. I hate the fact that this will make certain people happy, but this is your choice, and like someone said, it’s better to write nothing at all, than to tell lies. Go enjoy your life and god bless.

  20. Chrissy says:

    This is really disappointing, but I understand. Thank you for all your columns LL. Happy Easter to you if you observe

  21. josie says:

    I love reading up on what is going to happen. I stopped watching B & B after The writers ” KILLED ” off Steffy’s baby. Really. Who wants to see this crap that they call a Good soap? And I am not alone. To many ” stuck in the triangle for me to enjoy that soap anymore. By me, not watching B & B any more, I save on a busted flat screen. When a stupid soap can piss off a viewer to that extent. It is time to stop watching it.

  22. A.S. says:

    First time commenting here. Thank you for all your “Loose Lips” over the years, I enjoyed reading them. Good luck with whatever you do next, and have fun.

  23. Serial Lurker says:

    LL, I am sorry you have been subjected to all of that, and I am saddened that you are no longer writing your column. I loved reading it. Speculation and “what if” are great fun, even when they do not turn out the way a person wants it to. I wish you all the best always and hope you thoroughly enjoy the life that you are getting back!

  24. DeeBee says:

    I am so sorry you have had to go through this. No one should be bullied in such a manner that it stops them from doing what they love best. Good luck with any future endeavor. Sing like no one is listening, dance like no one is watching and live like each day is you last. You are one of a kind LL.

  25. Rachel says:

    This is so disturbing. I get really sick and tired of the few ruining things for everyone else. This column is free and and certain people like me looked forward to reading it every week. Some of you need to put things into perspective. These are Soaps not the real world and to blame one blogger for things she writes is wrong. TPTB change there minds, stories and words at a flip of a coin. Thanks Loose Lips for all the joy you brought me over the years. And to the few that have destroyed this for the rest of us F**K U!

  26. Mark says:

    I look forward to your column so much I shall miss it!!!!

  27. LindaV says:

    So sad to see you under the gun. I look forward to your column every Sunday and it never disappoints. Wishing you all the best – we will miss you!

  28. Nora says:

    You will be missed. I look forward to my Sundays’ Loose Lips readings w/ anticipation. I didn’t know you were dealing w/ such animosity — not only from some readers….err trolls — but also from the morons in charge of the flailing (and failing) soaps.

    You will be missed. I will miss you, your views, the spoilers you passed on to us (whether false or not, they were FUN to read) and really the fun camaraderie here w/ the folks who have seen the decline in soaps. After all — if it’s not fun, and that’s the reason you started doing it in the first place — then it’s time to move on. Maybe it’s time we all move on.

    Peace and love to you.

  29. Cheryl says:

    I have looked forward to reading your column for many years, and it saddens me that you will no longer publish your column. However, I respect your decision and truly wish you the best in your future endeavors. I’m sorry that my first time writing is your last column and sorry that I never took the time before to say thanks for great job.

  30. Pat says:

    So much for freedom of speech! Very sorry to read you are quitting and you will be missed. Thanks for the great job you have done and best wishes.

  31. Nancy says:

    I will also miss loose lips column
    I have enjoyed reading very much.

    There will always be someone who will complain and then the person or persons will spoil it for everybody

    That is not right at all
    IT is bad enough that we lost the soapnet channel and now this . I will miss reading loose lips alot.
    Well I do wish this person who wrote this column much good luck maybe one day we will see the column again

    • alexa says:

      Well I am not going to tip toe around this BB and KKL have their cronies scouring the internet and trying to squash any negative publicity about the no talent bimbo. I actually have see the emails with their logo and they have threatened these sites that they would not be given first run pics. they have also asked them to curve their criticism of the character or Brooke and the actress in articles about the soap opera. It seems to me some of these shows spend more time trolling the internet trying to stamp out any negative word to cater to the ego of some of these insecure little twits. Lets face it when your career consists of playing a whore on a soap opera and your only acting credit is a pron movie you can certainly see why certain actresses and actors want to bully people into blowing smoke up everyone’s ass.
      I hate to see this it has come to this point for you LL. If you want to continue to speak freely drop by our board. We have a nice guest section where we allow people to openly express their distaste for the whole phony lot of them. Im sure you know where to find us..we are one of the few left out their that wont succumb to a certain actresses ego.

  32. REGINA says:

    You will be missed always looked forward to reading your article every Sunday. Best wishes to you.

  33. Annetta says:

    Oh no, say it isn’t so…..

  34. Megs says:

    Yes, it’s me, MEGS of Lounging in LA. I wanted to say on LL’s column here that I totally sympathize with her and while some may want her to reconsider, I actually agree with what she’s doing. Too many times rabid fans come on and attack, get vile and disgusting all in the name of their soap favorites. While a soap opera is fictional, the people behind it aren’t and I’ve come to learn as many other columnists and websites that it boils down to who’s ass you kiss and who you choose to support on your column as to if you get nastiness, if the PR department puts you in a bulls eye and if you get nasty letters from big wigs on the show claiming foul yet they let out spoilers and change the direction of the show in a heartbeat if they think someone’s on to them.
    My own show is a perfect example. Patrick M ‘came to the rescue’ of Katherine Kelly Lang who has been long known to sit in on the writers’ meetings on her own admission and Brad Bell’s acknowledgement that she does in fact participate yet Patrick M and Michael *you know who* all claim she’s not a writer. WELL NO, she’s not a ‘writer’ people, that’s what the script writers are for. It’s called SEMANTICS, a word game, dancing around the truth. Lang has long influenced the show and it’s clearly obvious as both her and her on screen daughter Kim Matula are there every single day with some of the most ridiculous and boring stories ever. We know it happens. Lang admitted it. Yet people like Loose Lips here are bombarded with nastiness from her fans, from PR people from the show threatening her and from big wigs who don’t like their goodies getting out.
    Well I don’t blame Loosy one bit. It won’t stop MY big mouth, I can guarantee you that but there’s just so much a decent person can take before they decide to walk away from the nastiness, the vile behavior and the stress of trying to provide a fun environment. Loose Lips will be missed but I stand behind her firmly, and while the ‘fans’ of the people in particular and the rabid, uncouth fans themselves may be patting themselves on the back claiming they YET AGAIN shut down another website, I’ll point out that it’s not Loose Lips that’s running, it’s Loose Lips that’s choosing not to associate with the likes of those kind of people. We all know what they’ll do, we’ve seen it before, they’ll become so bored because there’s nobody to trash, nobody to complain about and no board to belittle that they’ll turn on each other. They always do. So Loose, darling, it’s not about Loose Lips’ column, the reason these people were attacking you is because they lack something in their own lives, it’s called ENJOYMENT. You go, girl.

    • louisa says:

      Oh dear, now it is only up to you Megs. I hope they can’t bully you out. I know it is a strain to be the target of so much nastiness, but you are saying it like it is and just think about what kind of people are sending you this nasty stuff. There are also a lot of people who admire you and your courage to deal with all of that instead of singing their tune. And we all know there is a big difference between a brain and enjoying soap entertainment and a big cow pasture.

    • Yes B&B Sucks! says:

      Megs, I am a huge fan of both LL and yourself, and I am so saddened to see her leave. I looked forward to reading her posts every Sunday, and as someone who has been warned on many a board about my berating the show (love to hate it after 27 years), I fully support you and stand by you. It’s amazing that many people (including the soap journalists themselves) cannot stomach the direction of the show, esp. KKL’s part in it. Thanks for having the balls to speak your opinion. I just wonder if TIIC can fully clean up the aging diva’s online presence, as it’s none too flattering.

    • alexa says:

      Megs I am glad to hear you will still be around to give people the REAL deal going on with these shows and also to show we will not be bullied or silenced over a fictional character.I love your take on the show each week because you give us a humorous look at this cheesy 30 minute mess. Keep rockin it every week megs and we will be right there reading.
      I hate to see LL go but I admire the fact that she refused to lower her IQ down to 20 to appease a bunch of idiots.

  35. Deedra says:

    Can we send you our emails and you email us every week?? You write great and I enjoy reading every week!!

  36. MC says:

    This is such a shame! I’m going to miss your column so much I feel like you were one of the only objective writers on this site. I understand why you would want to stop writing your column too but what I don’t understand is why people are still taking this opportunity to trash actresses or assume things with only rumors to back themselves up even though this is a large part of why u are ceasing to write the column anymore. You’re absolutely right it isn’t fun anymore when u go on a soap site to be entertained and have to read such insulting and vulgar comments by a variety of fans who cannot control themselves. It’s a shame. I wish you much success in the future and I’m really hoping you will return to write again. All the best!

  37. LCA says:

    Wow. I just read last week that Megs was Loose Lips! Imagine that…and now this?!

    Megs…you have gall. You need to look in the mirror and read your own column to find the most bitter, nasty, foul, vile, and hateful viewer/fan. Under the guise of being a “columnist” bashing and putting down the B&B actors and producers and writers. Megs/LL seems to be obsessed with all things KKL… but mostly the lies and innuendo she herself spins ….. and that is rather scary.

    Megs/LL … you definitely need a break… I hope it is a LOOONNNNNGGGGGGGG one!

    • Nona says:

      LCA can you please provide anything megs has said thats a lie about KKL? If you cant your the one lying. Lang has admitted she sits in on the writers meetings and gives ideas and her opinions and the writers of course go with them who wants to lose their job? brad bell admitted she does it too. most anyone who’s read this website knows that megs and loose lips are not the same people they have different writing styles and loose lips has been on here way longer, she’s been on when megs has missed a couple of weeks due to losing a family member and loose lips reports on all of the soaps not just bold. i really think you and your lang butt kissing kind are just angry because theres one spot on the web you cant control where the truth comes out about that hag Lang and how she operates on the set. i’m so upset that Loose Lips has decided not to put up with your kind and has shut things down but like Megs i’m glad she’s teaking a break. your one to talk about hate and lies when you are attacking loose lips and megs and not able to provide anything you claim is a lie.

    • Yes B&B Sucks! says:

      LCA, Good God Get a Grip Girl! All you need to do is Google it & you’ll see fiction is actually fact!

      • Nona says:

        Yes B%B Sucks, all it takes is a google to see the truth about kkl. LCA or “LIZ” on the World of BB is really pretty bitter, isn’t she?

        • LCA says:

          I don’t think I am the one who is out of control. That would be Megs/LL who are OBSESSED with KKL and make up crap non-stop about her. Too bad, so sad, for all of the haters who will have to find a new snake pit to wallow in each week.

          • louisa says:

            That was funny. Someone out of a snake pit accuses Megs and LL to be obsessed about KKL ,while KKL is the one harassing the net and has a full blown hyper aggressive PR team who threatens everybody with lawsuits and bullies boards into obedience like BBU. Stupid cows can’t even see the pattern behind it. Snakes are the rabid fans, not Megs or LL who just tell the truth how it is. You go Megs!

          • Nona says:

            lca or LIZ from World of Bold yet you havent proven one single time megs or Loose Lips either lady are lying about Lang. prove it otherwise you are hte one lying and spreading hatred. prove it. just once and i’m sure many people will shut up. prove to us one single time megs or loose lips has said something that isn’t true.

    • louisa says:

      Oh LL,Megs, nice example of a rabid fan?
      Deflecting all the adjectives which are true for their own sad lives on you. Bitter, nasty, foul, vile, hateful. Just imagine what sad kind of person would attack a real person over an imaginary soap like this. I can only laugh about that because really she can’t be very bright. In case someone finds this insulting, I am only reflecting on the picture the poster has drawn of herself.

    • alexa says:

      Oh stuff it LCA..It’s called an opinion column maybe you need a dictionary? Because everyone does not worship at the crotch of KKL you brookies cannot handle it. KKL is and actress and she and her character are open for discussion and criticism ..If KKL and her fans are that thinned skinned maybe they need to put her in a cartoon where it is appropriate for her to look cartoonish. Quit frankly i am tired of the overbearing broad and her fanatic cult.

    • Observer says:

      Oh, you’re so funny, LCA!
      You haven’t been keeping up too well because my observations have seen that Megs was accused of also being Hunter and Hanging. But, sadly, one of the scientifically gifted Brooke fans dispelled that ”fact” quite some time ago and stated that HA was actually a MALE poster from another board AND from another country who appears to be flying in on a regular basis and hanging around the set of B&B, collecting gossip. LOL!
      My observations are that those who spin around in circles are quite the desperate bunch, grasping at anything that will make sense because the TRUTH simply boggles them.
      If you don’t appreciate Megs column, then don’t read it. BTW, thanks for clicking on this site. The latest ”FACT” is that a click here is worth $ in the columnists pockets. Now isn’t that something? LMAO!
      Megs needs to take a break??? Nope. She’s consistent, she’s never spun. The dizzy ones need a break.

  38. MC says:

    I don’t understand how everything is related to KKL…megs gets bashed it’s KKL’s fault. ..LL gets bullied it’s KKL’s fault….storylines, actor’s departures or lack of screen time all KKL’s fault. Does she really have this much power?? I mean come on that is ridiculous. Alot of bad things happen in daytime and it’s not all bc of one actress. I can’t believe that no matter which actress it was about. No one person is capable of pulling that many strings. And another thing please stop saying these are facts. None of these things are facts their based on rumors, the internet, innuendo and gossip. So no one knows the actual truth except for the higher ups.

    • Nona says:

      MC

      First off I havent seen anything posted by Megs or Loose Lips that wasnt already spoken about on the web or admitted to by KKl herself. Scond, its only us BnB viweres who are talking about kkl, there are other posters who are nasty on GH side and other soaps that added to Loose Lips quitting. As I remember it, it’s mostly GH that caused Loose Lips to quit because of the nastiness of their posters. back to Lang yes she is sitting in on the writing staff she and bell admitted it. yes they use her story ideas, theyd be fired if they didnt. yes she backpeddles when the stories dump and ruin we’ve seen her do it. now would you please be so kind as to point out anything either megs or LL has said about Kkl that wasn’t true/

      So…according to Megs it seems KKL controls ABC, too …. since ABC is the network LL alluded to as one reason for quitting. Who knew KKL had that kind of power?

      • louisa says:

        KKL has Bells money behind her…functioning as platonic sugar daddy.

      • alexa says:

        LCA..you need to keep up..while you are over here in a frenzy trying to defend some women who doesn’t know you are alive..you have the whole damn story screwed up..you were in such a break neck hurry to get over here to try to throw yourself in front of a train for the object of you obsession you did not even bother to actually get familiar with what is going on.

      • Noudidnt says:

        You may want to read LL again. She alluded to multiple people. Paragraph 1 was not about KKL, but ABC. Paragraph 3 was ” 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.”
        *KKL
        **Brad Bell

        KKL kissing Brad Bell on the lips on camera shows who is brown nosing. She does that in public no one else.

        LL do what you need to do. You are loved and you will be missed. Ignore that haters. I feel sorry for them to make posts that show their illiteracy. They also want everyone else to be as miserable as them. Life is too wonderful and short to live it in misery. Even worse if you have to live vicariously through a fake soap character or it’s one trick pony portrayer.

        Megs (and LL) You rock!!! Love that you will be enjoyable entertainment for the future!!!

    • louisa says:

      KKL has the most aggressive PR team out there, that is why it is so obvious. But I am sure there are more. But she is a great example because you only have to wait, ever so often she shows her stupid self an twitter,

    • louisa says:

      And no, KKL is responsible for threatening boards and shutting the up, her rabid fans are responsible for the rest.

    • Soapstef says:

      Thank you MC!

      I was wondering the same things myself. I’m quite sick of this nonsense.

      • Louisa says:

        It is one of the thing where proof exists. KKL and her PRs threatened the BBU board into submission. Happy for you to ask them for the exchanged paperwork.

  39. Love The Soaps says:

    Just want to say thank you for all of the hard work over the years that you have done to try to provide information to all of us fans. I so agree with you that Daytime TV, and by that I mean our soaps, are definitely not what they used to be. I am so sorry for all of the cruelty that has been directed at you by so called fans, you are right, people now-a days can be so mean. I just don’t understand people being mean-spirited about anything, but especially toward someone that is just trying to provide fun information about our soaps. Really sorry for the times that people have not seemed to care when you were ill or had a personal matter to take care of. Thanks again for all your hard work and I wish you the best.

  40. Ruth says:

    Will miss you, always looked forward to your column. I agree with the post you linked – GH has become a variety show of skits… there is no continuity except for Ava, Sonny, and Julian, and emotional beats and character development are sorely lacking. It seems as fans have more voice in all the social media outlets that daytime execs are running scared and as a a result trying to censor people and websites. What they need to do is pay more attention and do some rewrites or else ALL the jobs and soaps will be history in short fashion.

  41. angeleye93 says:

    LL, I miss you. Reading your column was part of my Sunday routine. It helped me to know which days I wanted to make sure it didn’t miss. Thanks for your time. So go enjoys your family and friends. If you ever decide to come back I will follow.

  42. syd says:

    Will miss this so much!! Is anyone taking over for you? I volunteer!!! :) Seriously. Best wishes LL! Enjoy your break.

  43. Wanda says:

    Sorry to see you go. Always understood that you were writing about things leaked, but writers and producers have the right to change story lines, at a moments notice. That is not your fault. On B&B they were going to hook up Quinn & Eric, Brad changed his mind. He has the right and the power.
    I apologize for those readers who did not comprehend that. You will be missed!!
    Have a Holiday and maybe someday you’ll be back..Best of luck!

  44. loose lip fan says:

    Im so sorry about all u had to go through. I never leave a comment but I just had to this time. You will b missed I wake up every Sunday waiting to read your column. I work night shift so im sleep most of the day your column keeps me up to speed on things but I understand it was great while it lasted.

  45. Miss A says:

    WOW! What a way to start my Monday! : ( Sorry to see you go LL but I truly understand. I thoroughly enjoyed reading your comments and staying up to date on the last few remaining soaps still here. I don’t watch Y&R anymore because like most folks have said, it sucks right now. B&B is starting to suck because they focus on the same few boring characters with the same boring storylines and enough with the in breeding and incest! Sisters switching husbands, girl sleeping with brothers, etc. Bleh! So long LL and hope you start back writing soon!!!

    • Former B&Ber says:

      I was really sad to hear about your departure Loose Lips. I always enjoyed reading your column, and realized (unlike some) that it should be taken with a grain of salt, and you only report what you hear at that present time. Thereafter, if things on a soap changed, it wasn’t your fault and it always sickened me to see certain posters attack you not only on this site, but on other sites as well. Your column was a nice, lighthearted, enjoyable Sunday read for me, and as much as I wish you were staying, I really hope you enjoy your time off from some of the nastiness you endured. Thank you.

      And to you posters who are glad LL is gone, let me say I wouldn’t be too quick to pat yourselves on the back.
      You are not as powerful as you think you are. Don’t think for a minute that just because LL is taking a break that your beloved soap stars and their behind the scene antics are protected. Unfortunately, sometimes rumours stem from some truths and you just have to accept that. A lot of soap fans are really fed up with how crappy their favourite shows have become, and it doesn’t take a genius to see that favourtism and narcissism play a large role in the garbage we’ve been viewing over the last couple of years. As someone pointed out earlier, the TBTB in Soapland are getting scared, which is why they have PR teams on the hunt for anything “negative” written about their soap, their actors/actresses. Their ratings are dropping, but since they’re not willing to improve the quality of the show, they’ll just take the easy route and muzzle anyone who has the courage to take them on.
      So, to the PR teams who are definitely reading this board as I type, it’s really simple: stop kowtowing to these insecure, self-absorbed, demanding actors and write decent, balanced storylines that will appeal to viewers of all ages, race, and sex. Did it ever occur to you that this is the way to keep viewers and to end the criticism?

  46. Louisa says:

    Hm, there was a great answer from Megs to the ones who bullied LL out with their empty lives and low class nastiness. Where is it gone? I can only repeat, LL may gave up but you go Megs!!!!!
    I wonder though if LL is aware that these people celebrate a “victory”. You may want to revise your decision LL.

  47. Marian says:

    I don’t think I ever left a comment here, but I have thoroughly enjoyed reading this column. My odd pleasure was seeing what came true, and what didn’t. So thank you for everything you have written Loose Lips. The bully doesn’t realize that you gave his/her show the publicity that the network doesn’t. And some wonder why soaps have been (and probably soon will be) dying.

  48. Cindy says:

    I am so sorry 2 hear, I look forward to your column every week, I understand where you are coming from. Its been a pleasure, thanks for all your columns, I will miss them and you!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  49. MyOhMy46 says:

    Someone suggested just google KKL and find all about her porno past. Well I did and found one movie that was made in 1996 called Simulation Seduction. I even watched it and it is not porno. Doesn’t even compare to porno and much less than what is shown on HBO or Showtime or even in movie releases now.
    I also found a (porno by the definition of certain posters here) movie done by Hunter Tylo called The Initiation made in 1984. So does that make Hunter Tylo a porn star too??

    LL may write about rumors and speculation and even a few spoilers but when it crosses over into an actor/actress’s real life constantly then that is not objective reporting but only a demonstration of extreme bias and also some posters who continue the slandering, yes I said slandering of any actor/actress should really think about how they would feel if all this vile and hatred were directed at them?

    LL’s column when she reported strictly about soaps and soap storylines were highly amusing but once that line was crossed and there was no sign of just going back to objective reporting on a particular soap then all credibility was lost except amongst those that felt the same way she did.

    What a shame.

    • alexa says:

      Oh please my oh my there was a shot of tylo with other girls in a shower through a fog in a lockeroom. Lang masturbated on screen and then screwed her co stars brains out fully nude in a bathtub..fake boobs and dark curlies for all too see. Hardly a movie you would sit around with the kids with a bowl of popcorn and watch.When you screaming out orgasms while you pleasure yourself on screen and your snatch is hanging out why you screw in a tub..I would pretty much say that is porn.

      • T says:

        Well someone better tell all actresses like Angelina Jolie, Meryl Streep, Meg Ryan plus countless others that they’ve done porn !!!! Shhhhhhhh!!!!!

        • Louisa says:

          They left something for imagination, KKL did not. She was already on the soap and did this fabulous shower porn scene. Of course she can’t remember it nowadays. And of course it was not really a break through for a real career, was it? LOL

        • Alexa says:

          name a movie where where Jolie Meryl streep or even meg ryan inserted their fingers into their vagina and screamed out an orgasm? meg ryan did a spoof of one at a dinner table..she wasn’t actually gyrating her self all over her own hand. And i have never seen any of these oscar winning actresses screw on screen where their crotch along with their fake boobs were exposed while screwing a co star. The women you named are class acts who’s career spans a multitude of years with awards hanging on a shelf.KKL’s big moment on screen was howling out an orgasm at 1;30 in the afternoon because her character was riding her daughter’s husband. They don’t give out awards for that and that is why the aging lang is still on a 30 m minute cheesy soap doing the same thing she did 30 years ago..I would feel sorry for her if she wasn’t such a diva.
          Daytime is a dying genre and the people running these shows are doing themselves no favor out arguing with and trying to intimidate fans..we are the ones who buys the products of the sponsors who pay for their shows to air. And we can also be the ones who can be relentless complaining to those sponsors and boycotting their products.

          • T says:

            Original Sin……In the Cut…not When Harry met Sally. ….duh….and Hope Springs….movies named….

        • Observer says:

          Deflecting from Ms. No-Nom Airhog Soapstar’s cheezy backroom blue movie and comparing them to Veteran OSCAR AWARD winners? Surely you jest.

          • T says:

            No that’s not what I was doing but take it any way you like as you have seemed to already…..

  50. BBB says:

    Am I missing something here the network that cancelled All My Children and OLTL is without a doubt ABC, so this is where the original threat came from. But somehow this all went back to KKL and Bell over at CBS. Did I miss something here in the translation LL. Anyway about your column I’m sorry to see it go as well, come on its a speculation and rumor coulumn the networks actors whoever can’t handle that. I can, its a fun read, I am upset that these people are being allowed to have so much control over what is being said out here, I am with those who are saying whatever happened to freedom of speech.

  51. Former B&Ber says:

    By the way LL (in case you are still reading our posts), I did go over to Martini Kitty’s column and read the poster “Matilda” piece. Although I don’t watch GH, I totally agree that it was an insightful, intelligent post, and all her theories could be applied directly to B&B as well.

  52. W.W says:

    Sorry to see you go LL. Everyone enjoyed your spoilers…even the rabid fans who came here to bully and harass you….they hung on your every word proving their obsession with you. I don’t blame you one bit for leaving….I mean…these are the same people who sent congratulatory baskets to fictional characters, when they had R.J. (Insert 3 eye rolls here).

    Do what is best for you. After some time, I do hope you decide to return….if for no other reason…than to just piss the bullies off ;)

    KKL and Bell are acting immorally and it will eventually catch up to them. They did this same crap last year around Emmy time…trying to bully boards into submission. So glad all the bribes and bullying couldn’t buy KKL that Emmy last year. Can you imagine how much worse it will be if she makes the final cut this year?

    The worst part…KKL feeds the delusions of these fans and enables their mental behavior. She, herself, needs to realize it’s a soap and then tell her fans it’s a soap.

  53. Andrew says:

    Will miss you, LL.

    Have really enjoyed your column, thank you for all the hard work you put into it!

    Best,
    Andrew

  54. Larkin says:

    I m sorry to hear that and i know how you feel LL, but you should not let these bully like Bell and his team of axx kisser to chase you away, from many of us beside the “scoops” false or true it was nice to see an objective person at work, who knows what’s going on. We all gonna miss you God knows we need real people who knows and remember how was the real Daytime, you are right IT IS NOT FUN ANYMORE FOR THE REAL SOAP FANS LOVERS like us, and TBH i m shocked that this madness from executives to actresses who gets paid for leeching kije KKL to some of their followers it is outrageous, soaps were made for us to enjoy not keep some people on a job they don’t deserve or buy Emmy nominations or make actors comfy or happy, they lost focus why they are there in the first place, and getting paid thousands of dollars, William Bell is spinning in his grave for what his rat dumbaxx son has reduced his creation, what #bb has become. What a shame. Thank you LL for your commitment, time and effort you put in ever column God bless you and I wish you the best. Eventually these morons at B&B will get what they deserve, the trash can!the worst writer, cast i ever seen with delusions of greatness!Why the real actors they all left!SMH

  55. Paul Satterfield says:

    So sorry to see you go. Just like the federal government, these people think that if they can silence their critics, then nobody will notice just how bad things really are. GH producer Gloria Monty had a telephone hotline and would listen to viewer comments and take the criticism constructively. EVERY DAY! This undoubtedly was one of the key factors in producing high ratings. TPTB have stopped listening and they don’t care. Good Luck!

    • Observer says:

      Yes Paul.
      Big Brother Bell and Sister Lang want to slap shut the mouths of viewers, especially the long-time viewers who REMEMBER the history of the show and the characters; they go so far as to have discussion boards gag all negative bashing against the divas and BAN the posters who speak out against them; they flood the magazines with biased articles; and now the outspoken columnists are being shut down. I’m referring specifically to the B&B, but gather this brilliant strategy is being applied to the few remaining soaps.
      I’m just glad that not all the viewing audience are MINDLESS SHEEP. Many have broken through the fence and have wandered away. Their job now is to keep feeding crap to the sheep they have remaining as I highly doubt the free ones will wander back in.

  56. SZima says:

    Sorry to see you go. I don’t get over to Soaptown that often, but when I do, your’s is the column I read. I can’t say I blame you though. There have been many good soap columnists who have had to stop writing because they couldn’t take the abuse any longer.
    Wishing you well in your Real Life!

  57. Philly Diva says:

    Sorry to see you go LL, I will miss your column. I am a strong believer in if it ain’t fun don’t do it. Go enjoy life and do fun things, I wish you well.

  58. Maria says:

    I am so disappointed to see this column end…I understand why, and I want to say a big THANK YOU. I’m sure there are other good things in store for you, which will bring you joy and fun!

  59. JJ says:

    SO sorry to see your coloumn go :(
    It was more fun to read than to actually watch the garbage they air and call Daytime. It used to be fun.
