My Antonio: Recap for October 18th

On Sunday's My Antonio, each of the three remaining women got a date with Antonio without having to win any challenges. Brooke's date came first and she got to spend almost an entire day with Antonio out on the ocean. And because Tully was still in the hospital recovering from her horseback riding injuries, Miranda's date came later that night. Brooke's date involved snorkeling and surfing with lots of smooches in between, while Miranda had to earn the kisses she received by playing a taste testing game. Antonio blindfolded her and gave her different pieces of food to taste and every time she correctly guessed what she was tasting he gave her a kiss. Miranda thought this was one of the best dates she had ever been on, but I just keep thinking that if this had been a date with a "regular" guy, she would have thought he was either really cheap or just using her for market research. I mean as far as dates go, they don't come any cheaper than this one. It took place right outside Antonio's suite, where Miranda was treated to an assortment of fruit, oh, and an oyster on the half shell, which she guessed by the way, but failed to receive a kiss. The fruit probably came from some sort of gift basket the show placed inside Antonio's suite. And as for the oyster, I maintain that this was just a common slug Antonio placed on a shell he found in the ocean during his date with Brooke. From what I could see the only money actually spent for this date was on the blindfold, but even that was probably recycled from the fruit basket. To be fair, I did fail to mention the helicopter ride prior to the actual date, but since Antonio has taken so many of his dates on a helicopter he is bound to be enrolled in some sort of frequent flier program.

The dates only got cheaper from there when Antonio brought Tully home from the hospital, and they spent time together outside on a bench. Granted, Tully had been advised by the doctors to take it easy, but it looks like Antonio could have at least treated her to a romantic dinner or something. I am sure he still had some fruit leftover from his date with Miranda so he wouldn't have been out any extra expenses. Nevertheless, this date had the potential to bring Tully and Antonio back together, as they actually seemed to make a real connection for the first time since the show began, and Antonio admitted that he loved her. However all of that progress came to a screeching halt later on at the elimination dinner when Tully arrived wearing a wedding dress. She even brought along pictures of her life with Antonio and insisted that he look at them with her. Quite frankly this made her seem a bit desperate, if not a little unstable. In fact Antonio seemed sort of scared by the whole display because moments later he began the elimination and sent Tully home.

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.
