My Baby's Got a Secret: DOOL

After months of waiting and wondering how and when it would happen, finally the truth is out about Chloe's fling and Parker's paternity! Now Nathan is the only one still left in the dark. As far as big soapy reveals go, yesterday's shocker was just okay. Maybe my expectations were too high after so many false alarms where it seemed that the truth was going to come out but it didn't. This is my main complaint with Days, they tease their audience too much so that by the time the event that they have been teasing us with finally happens it's anti-climactic. I think this particular reveal should have happened shortly after Melanie and Nathan left quarantine because I never really understood how they could come so close to death, say their "I love you's" then go back to their respective mates as if nothing ever happened. Typically the "near death" storylines are put in place to bring a couple together, not bring them almost together then have them say "eh, we should just be friends, right?" At least that storyline allowed Melanie and Carly to make up, if only temporarily. Quite frankly I'm a little sick of Melanie always being so mad at Carly. And I'm really having a hard time wrapping my head around why she is so mad at her this time since Carly is the only one who did not knowingly betray her. In fact Carly did less to Melanie than Melanie did to Daniel in not telling him that Chloe slept with someone else!


I like that everyone learned the whole truth about Chloe's fling in the middle of a crowded room. It had all the makings of great soap opera drama. I did feel sorry for Maggie though, being the only one asked to leave instead of getting to stay and watch the show. The woman spent weeks inside a sarcophagus and the minute something exciting happens she gets put on baby duty!


I loved how Philip tried to pretend that Caroline was senile because quite frankly I've had my doubts about her sanity lately anyway. I didn't, however, like that this whole thing ended with her having a stroke. I'm not sure which is worse though, the fact that she had a stroke or the fact that she was in a room with three doctors and a nurse who didn't recognize the warning signs when she started complaining about her head and feeling dizzy. Kayla's only assessment was "this has been very hard on her." Yes, Kayla I'm sure all the manipulative and deceitful behavior has been hard on her, maybe you want to get her to sit down for a minute before she, I don't know, has a stroke?


Of course Caroline's stroke will inevitably make me feel sorry for her and by extension Stephanie, which I hate because it is also going to prevent Nathan and Melanie from being appropriately mad at Stephanie for keeping the truth hidden for so long. Caroline may have talked her into keeping Parker's paternity a secret, but she didn't exactly have to twist her arm. After all, Stephanie spent weeks trying to keep the truth hidden before she knew Caroline was involved. And Kayla's warnings to tell the truth merely succeeded in giving her slight pause before she ultimately did what she wanted to do all along; but somehow I doubt that she will have to atone for any of that behavior.

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.

GL Alum Launches Indiegogo Campaign for Music Video!

UPDATE: Morgan Englund's Indiegogo campaign is now 76% funded. To meet his goal, $2,418 will need to be donated by June 2nd. 

To hear Morgan talk about his song Homeward Bound, be sure to check out my interview with him from last week at

Guiding Light alum Morgan Englund (Dylan Lewis) has launched an Indiegogo campaign to help fund a music video for a song he wrote called "Homeward Bound (A Firefighter's Song)", a fitting title and song for the actor who has worked as both a firefighter and paramedic. 

Englund is hoping to raise $10,000 for the creation of the video, which will be directed by Andrea Shreeman. So far $3,199 has been donated to the campaign with a month left to go. Numerous perks are up for grabs for those wishing to contribute to the video's funding. $5 will get you a thank you shout out on social media from Englund, while the biggest perk, at $1500, will earn you an executive producer credit and a VIP visit to the set.
