Engaging Spixie: GH

Fans of GH's Maxie and Spinelli, or Spixie as they are affectionately referred to, received a treat on Monday as Maxie finally accepted Spinelli's proposal, or did they? Spixie's long anticipated engagement was bittersweet because in the minutes leading up to Maxie's acceptance of the proposal she was hoping that Mac would forbid it so that she had an excuse not to marry Spinelli without breaking his heart. That plan fell apart when Mac ultimately did what Maxie wanted and she insisted that she could marry whoever she wanted, including Spinelli. She then accepted Spinelli's proposal but it was clear to everyone in the room that she only did so out of spite. Spinelli was the only one who was blissfully unaware of what had just occurred.

As a fan of Spixie myself I am unhappy with the way this is playing out. I was hoping that Maxie would either whole-heartedly accept Spinelli's proposal or he would agree to momentarily put that aside until she was ready. With the way things are going now Spinelli is going to get his heart broken and Maxie will be regarded as the same shallow flake she used to be.


  1. I whole-heartedly agree! Maxie has evolved into a lovable while flaky woman. If she breaks Spinelli's heart, she will be taking a huge step backward!

Guiding Light Alum Morgan Englund Releases New Music Video

If you follow this blog and/or my LIVE interviews with any regularity, you may recall that last year I chatted with Morgan Englund about his crowdfunding campaign to make a music video for his song Homeward Bound (A Firefighter's Song).

Englund was a firefighter and paramedic for years before deciding to pursue his long-held dream of becoming a singer/songwriter and musician. Homeward Bound is a tribute to Englund's fellow first responders and marks his first video in what will surely be a successful career in the music industry. 

Regarding his song, Englund writes: 

I hung up my axe and stethescope. But I offer this song to first responders everywhere. You do an amazing job, you sacrifice way more than the average person realizes. I will ever be proud and grateful to have been counted among you.

I chatted with Englund just days before the official video release and you can watch that interview here:

The video for Homeward Bound has since been released; and you can check that…

Young, Restless, and Broke: A Review

I recently finished reading the book Young, Restless, and Broke by Blossom Kan and Michelle Yu, the acclaimed authors of China Dolls.  It might seem kind of strange that I would be talking about a book considering this is a soap opera blog, but I assure you this book is relevant. It is about a young, aspiring actress named Sarah who dreams of starring on her favorite soap one day. Sarah is the ultimate soap fan, as is her friend Chad, so this book is filled with soap references, most of which are based on actual soaps, their storylines, and their actors. Sarah's dreams of becoming a soap actress take her on an unexpected journey that often mirrors a soap opera, leading her on a path of self-discovery and self-worth.

I really enjoyed this book. It's the perfect summer read because it's relatively short with less than 300 pages, more importantly it's easy to follow. It's something you can pick up and read for a little while, then put down without having difficulty re…
