My Antonio: Recap for October 11th

On Sunday's My Antonio, the women went horseback riding with mama Sabato as a test to see how well they could get along with her. However, before everyone could even get up on their horses Christi had another breakdown, which was apparently brought on by memories of a childhood horseback riding accident. Tully tried to talk her through it, but got injured in the process of climbing off her own horse. However she was determined finish the challenge, probably realizing that everyone would think she was faking her injury if she left.

Later on, the women took a break from horseback riding to have lunch. Mama Sabato took this as an opportunity to ask each of the women why they thought they were right for Antonio. Soon, she and Tully began discussing their history, where mama Sabato tried explaining to her why it was wrong for a 28 year old woman to elope with an 18 year old man. Apparently even after all these years this is something that Tully still does not understand because all she heard was that she was being blamed for the problems she and Antonio had in their relationship. At that particular moment it didn't matter though because Tully's pain from her injury was getting worse and she had to be rushed to the hospital for treatment.

Meanwhile Christi decided she needed some alone time with Antonio to see how he felt about her. Antonio also wanted to talk to Christi to really get to know her a little better. And of course the only way to do that was in the hot tub. While they were in there, um, talking, someone came outside and told Antonio that Tully was in the hospital with internal bleeding and that she was asking for him. Christi feigned concern until Antonio was out of sight, then threw a champagne glass in anger.

As Antonio was checking on Tully, Christi was back at the suite complaining about how her dated ended without Antonio even saying goodbye to her. Never mind the fact that Tully had a serious injury and was being treated at the hospital, Christi needed attention and was determined to get it. So later that night when Antonio went back to the suite to tell the women how Tully was, Christi immediately started complaining about the fact that Antonio left her in the hot tub without saying goodbye. Of course Antonio had technically said goodbye to her, Christi just could not see past the fact that he had left her to check on Tully.

The next day, mama Sabato went to the suite to present another challenge to the women, the wedding day challenge. Supposedly this was mama Sabato's attempt at being a part of the wedding process, having missed it the first time when Antonio married Tully. The wedding challenge turned out to be as close to the real thing as it could possibly get. All of the women had to pick out a wedding dress and have their hair and makeup done. They even had to write their own vows, something that Christi refused to do. Meanwhile, mama Sabato brought Antonio a suit and told him to be ready in an hour or so, without explaining why.

Later on, mama Sabato led Antonio outside, where preparations had been made for a wedding ceremony. She told Antonio she wanted to see if he could actually make a choice when he saw the women in their wedding dresses. In other words, the party is over, do what you came here to do and let's get on with it. This was probably the best thing mama Sabato could have done because throughout this entire series Antonio has seemed content to just have fun, while using the "unsuitable-as-a-lifelong-mate" excuse for the purposes of elimination.

As the faux ceremony began, each of the women took turns walking down the aisle, then recited the vows they had written for Antonio. Christi was the last woman to walk down the aisle, where she told Antonio that she did not write him vows because she did not want to do that until her actual wedding. I might actually believe that if Christi was a different kind of woman, but I think the real reason she did not want to write vows is because she was afraid she couldn't. Either way, mama Sabato ultimately objected to this union. And just as I predicted, she proceeded to tell Antonio about how she had asked Christi to spy on Tully and report back to her, and how Christi agreed to do this without hesitation. However, I think Mama Sabato may have glossed over, and even exaggerated some of the details of this arrangement in order to save her own skin. She told Antonio that she had asked Christi to spy on Tully and the rest of the women, but from what I saw Tully was the only one she asked Christi to spy on. Moreover, I believe when mama Sabato first approached Christi she asked her if she would help her get rid of Tully, not exactly the same thing as spying on her. Of course the only version of the truth Antonio heard was his mother's and this turned out to be enough for him to send Christi home. And he was actually grateful to his mother for "testing" Christi so that he could see her true character. Obviously Christi should have been sent home weeks ago, but this test doesn't really count for much since she was the only woman tested in this way. There could have very well been other women in the house willing to do the same thing in order to get on mama Sabato's good side and eliminate the competition. In the end it is likely that none of this will matter anyway, because as soon as the mock wedding was over, Antonio went to see Tully, the woman he will most likely choose.

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.
