Defying All Logic: Hollywood Heights

After watching what has unfolded on Hollywood Heights the past few weeks I decided I had to say something about the latest plot twist. If you have been watching the show lately I'm sure you already know that I am referring to the storyline that has everyone believing Eddie is dead. When this storyline first began it had the potential of being a compelling mystery, which, in all honesty should have been resolved by now, especially since the show is nearing the end of its run. (So far it hasn't been picked up for a second season and likely won't be.)

The plot twist that started out so promising quickly turned into something laughable. First of all Eddie said that after he stopped at this gas station in the middle of nowhere, in the middle of the night, he needed to use the restroom. Apparently he couldn't hold it until he reached a safer location, so he left his car, wallet, and I'm assuming keys with creepy gas station guy. I know Eddie isn't exactly known for trusting the right people, but come on, didn't any part of him think this was kind of...well...stupid?? Of course on his way to the restroom someone came up behind him, knocked him out and almost beat him to death, leaving him in the care of the highly suspicious farm siblings. I really haven't bothered to learn their actual names. These two are obviously holding Eddie hostage and the girl appears to be the mastermind. I'm not buying their explanation that they are keeping Eddie there for his own good. In fact, I wouldn't be at all surprised if they beat him up and kidnapped him. I assumed they would be asking for ransom, but since they haven't yet done that I'm not sure what their motivation is for kidnapping him, unless maybe they were hoping he would hear them sing and offer to get them signed with his record label. Of course if Eddie dies of a staph infection from his filthy surroundings that won't be possible. For crying out loud they have him sleeping on what appears to be wooden crates covered in horse blankets and they refuse to get him medical help, aside from some medication they bought from an unknown source. In addition, farm girl told Eddie that they couldn't afford a phone, yet she showed him a video on what appeared to be an iphone. A video which undoubtedly came from the Internet she said she didn't have. With Hollywood Heights apparently only being a one season show it's a shame it has to end with this ridiculous storyline.

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 https://youtu.be/5Dyq4Tc7H-Y

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.
