My Antonio: Recap for August 30th

On Sunday's episode of "My Antonio," Tully continued on her quest to win Antonio back, while he continued to present challenges to the women that would help him decide who to eliminate. The first of these challenges was a rigorous workout where the women had to run laps and climb a rope that was attached to a tree using nothing but their hands and upper body strength. I must admit I get confused everytime I watch this show because I cannot tell whether Antonio is looking for a soul mate or trying to put together a team of athletes.


Eventually Antonio gave the women a break, allowing them to play on a "Slip-n-Slide." That seemed appropriate considering that most of them are in their 30's and 40's. During this "recess" Tully hit her head, causing her to become ill. At that point play time was over and Antonio presented the women with their next challenge, to write a love letter for him. A love letter? This is Antonio Sabato, Jr.! Has he not had enough fan mail over the years to boost his ego? Apparently the women did not think so because they hurried back to the house and immediately starting pouring their hearts out, everyone except Tully that is, who was still recovering from her accident.


Later on Antonio read all of the letters then met with the women where he asked three of them to read what they had written out loud. He seemed particularly touched by what Tania, Christi, and Autumn had to say, even requesting dates with both Tania and Christi. I guess Autumn's letter was good, just not good enough to warrant a date. Tania's date came first, which was just a simple dinner, where she received several kisses on the cheek from Antonio. The next day Christi went on her date with Antonio, which was significantly more elaborate than the date he shared with Tania. Their date took place out on the ocean aboard a boat, where Christi became the first woman on the show to receive an actual kiss from Antonio, several kisses to be exact. However their romantic date was interrupted by Tully who became so jealous that she had someone drive her out to the boat on a wave runner. When she reached the boat she begged for some alone time with Antonio, so Christi allowed her to have ten minutes with him. Tully spent this time pleading with him to keep her on the show until she could spend enough time with him to get reacquainted. Once she left Antonio and Christi continued with their date as if nothing happened.


Later on at the elimination, Antonio did not waste any time revealing who was in danger of leaving. Ultimately it came down between Tully and Monique, a video game producer who had yet to spend any real time with Antonio. Antonio pulled them aside, allowing each one to plead their case for staying. And of course Antonio let Tully stay, after all she is helping to create controversy on the show. Once the elimination was out of the way both Christi and Tully wanted to talk to Antonio's mother. However, Christi was the only one allowed to speak to her because she refused to talk to Tully. Christi, acting as though she and Antonio were already in a serious relationship, attempted to explain her past as a Playboy model to Antonio's mother. However, this topic did not seem to phase her because she was too busy plotting to get rid of Tully, a task that she sought Christi's help in completing.

Could Guiding Light Alum Stephanie Gatschet Be Looking to Return to Daytime?

I stumbled upon something interesting while scrolling through Instagram last night. It was a comment posted in response to a General Hospital video. The video was reposted by actress Laura Wright (Carly, GH; ex-Cassie,GL). The response came from actress Stephanie Gatschet.

You may recall that in addition to playing Madison North on All My Children, Gatschet played Cassie's daughter, Tammy, on Guiding Light.

Gatschet's comment to Wright was "I miss creating melodrama...keep an eye out for a good role for little ol' me. I wanna play!"  (Check out the screenshot below)



So could Gatschet be eyeing a return to daytime? How cool would it be to see her starring opposite Laura Wright again?

Gatschet most recently starred in the web series Misguided.
