Truly how to get rid of small acne scars Behind The Scenes Soap Opera Dirt (Part III)

The difference between rape then and rape now is society’s relationship to rape. Now, for many people rape is black and white. There are no grey areas any longer where rape is how to get rid of small acne scars concerned. If she’s says no, then it’s rape. Case closed. If she says no after she says yes and they’re in the middle of the act and he doesn’t stop then it’s rape. In today’s world, rhett butler raped scarlett O’hara when he picked her up and carried her up how to get rid of small acne scars those stairs.

You can’t play a ravishing any more. You can’t play a scene where a woman says no over how to get rid of small acne scars and over when everyone knows that she really means yes. You can’t play sexual games anymore. Unless it’s the woman playing the game and she’s the aggressor.

For the record, I am not pro rape, however I miss the days when soaps could tell more how to get rid of small acne scars provocative stories and not be shouted down by the fans how to get rid of small acne scars because someone is being offended. I personally think good writing is supposed to be offensive how to get rid of small acne scars and thought provoking. All to often these shows play it safe instead of how to get rid of small acne scars really exploring some of the darker elements of human nature. Soaps used to do that. They can’t anymore.

They used to know hot to give the audience what how to get rid of small acne scars it wants. There are a lot of reasons for that, but cable, more women in the workplace because of feminism, and OJ are all just stock excuses. They don’t explain bad writing, too many petty rivalries, too much network interference, the increased cost of doing business in new york and how to get rid of small acne scars LA, or the increasing prevalence of glorified underwear models who can’t act over stage-trained actors. They also don’t explain that feminism has been mainstream since at least how to get rid of small acne scars 1972, the year of "I am woman," [italic]maude[/italic] and ms. Magazine, and that it was during that time that a largely how to get rid of small acne scars female-centric form like soaps were at their peak in popularity how to get rid of small acne scars and starting to increase in production value. Cable TV was around in the 1970s but got big how to get rid of small acne scars in the 1980s, and that probably thinned the herd and took audiences away how to get rid of small acne scars from the ratings low-liers like EON and SFT and the newcomers and nonstarters how to get rid of small acne scars like [italic]texas[/italic] and [italic]generations[/italic]. VCRs also enabled people to record their favorite shows and how to get rid of small acne scars save for as long as they wanted, and now dvrs do that. The fact is that networks and production companies have nobody how to get rid of small acne scars to blame but themselves for killing the soaps. Perhaps things might have been different if douglas marland hadn’t died, but we don’t live in a world of what-ifs. When my mom switched to reality TV in the afternoon, I knew they were living on borrowed time. If the writing had been better, the audience wouldn’t have deserted them.

AMC really screwed the pooch twice, first by moving to the west coast which ultimately left how to get rid of small acne scars a lot of people out of work on both coasts, then by signing with prospect park instead of a streaming how to get rid of small acne scars server. If disney had thought about jumping into streaming a few how to get rid of small acne scars years earlier, they might have saved AMC and OLTL. Most people don’t combine the internet and TV, and that’s one reason that didn’t pan out the way they wanted.

I will never understand what possessed P&G to put mary alice dwyer dobbin in charge of how to get rid of small acne scars production. Were they trying to kill their shows on purpose? I get the sense they really wanted out of the how to get rid of small acne scars TV production business. None of their sitcoms were hits, they made a few TV movies in the 1980s and how to get rid of small acne scars 1990s, and once [italic]dawson’s creek[/italic], which they co-produced with columbia, went off the air, they just let AWTW and GL slide into oblivion. The death of AW was a long, painful one much like brandon tartikoff’s 25 year battle with hodgkin’s lymphoma that ultimately claimed his life around the same how to get rid of small acne scars time. No other soap NBC launched lasted more than a decade. By anonymous

The GH trifecta of shit (geary, benard and burton) disliked and were probably threatened by GV because he was how to get rid of small acne scars better looking than they were. He made fun of them every chance he got. He was not impressed and he made sure they never how to get rid of small acne scars forgot it. They started it by picking on him and trying to how to get rid of small acne scars control the writing for him so he wouldn’t ever look better than they allowed. It was mostly burton who was so insecure he couldn’t stand for GH to have a better looking actor, and vaughn definitely was that. If one of the trifecta hated someone, they all did and they never broke ranks. Vaughn wasn’t the only one the insufferable assholes treated that way. Ingo and rick hearst got the same treatment.

Monaco and vaughn fucked for a brief time. She was all over him until frons, with JFP’s help, made a deal with burton that their pairing would be how to get rid of small acne scars reunited when monaco got back from stripping in vegas. They promised burton there would be no romance, only partners in some adventures. After burton took the bait, frons reneged on the promise and monaco laughed at burton how to get rid of small acne scars when he objected. Frons the tit worshiper had a huge hard-on for monaco and always gave her anything she wanted.

Monaco, who hasn’t drawn a sober breath for many years, dislikes vaughn because within days of her throwing him under how to get rid of small acne scars a bus to get burton back, they were on stage at some kind of outdoor daytime how to get rid of small acne scars fan event. Vaughn got there first and monaco looked quite smug when how to get rid of small acne scars she plopped down on the couch next to him. He didn’t say a word to her, but he got up, walked away and sat somewhere else. She looked mortified, and I doubt she has forgiven him for that slap how to get rid of small acne scars in the face, no matter how much she deserved it. By anonymous

For R115 & R116…….Many years ago, I was the assistant manager of a bowling center (we don’t call them alleys) which hosted lots of kids birthday parties. One friday afternoon, the party attendant assigned to the "wagner" party flaked, last minute. So…..I was stuck working the party, which was fine. It was very late on a friday afternoon, only 10 kids, 9-10 years old……And it was jack & kristina wagner’s son. I hadn’t watched GH in years, but thought, "this should be interesting." they were divorced at the time, pre-reconciliation (and subsequent break up).

Kristina was warm & delightful. She arrived with her sons, and BFF lynn herring, and lynn’s two boys. It was a drop-off party, so none of the other parents hung around, other than lynn……Who was going to help schlep the kids to kristina’s house for a slumber party, after bowling, pizza, cake, arcade games. Kristina & lynn were great fun! After I got the kids set up on the lanes, I asked kristina & lynn if I could get them anything. They glanced at each other & replied: "coronas!" they sat & gabbed with their coronas (they only had one, each), and chips & salsa, and cheered the boys, while they bowled. They seemed like very cool, fun, laid-back moms. Jack showed up about 15 minutes after the party began. He & kristina hugged, and they seemed to be friendly. After a brief conversation (and saying hello to kids), he left again, to pick up an ice-cream cake. He was gone the whole time the kids were bowling.

He wasn’t a complete asshole, but he definitely carried himself in that douchebag/"I’m a handsome star!" manner, when he walked through concourse, or spoke to me. Even when he said "please", it sounded condescending. So different than her. Kristina insisted she & jack (and lynn) serve the kids pizza, cake & sodas themselves, in the party room….And he did seem engaged in that……A little manically so.

[quote]I don’t agree. I think the problem was that they were afraid to how to get rid of small acne scars write gay characters as real people with flaws. What did days do, they took a 19 year just coming out of the how to get rid of small acne scars closet twink and all of a sudden he is in how to get rid of small acne scars love and wanting to get married. What if will was on salem’s version of grindr?

I don’t see what’s so wrong with a story about a lovestruck gay how to get rid of small acne scars teenager. But since you mentioned grindr, why not have a gay character fall for a guy how to get rid of small acne scars who’s not ready for a commitment? There isn’t a gay man alive who can’t relate to that on some level. Most of us are neither sluts nor prudes, and we are neither hypermasculine nor hyperfeminine. But part of the reason the soaps lost their way how to get rid of small acne scars is because in casting they started to value looks more how to get rid of small acne scars than talent, and that mentality appears to be the same with both how to get rid of small acne scars str8 and gay characters. A gay male character who’s an average guy looking for another average guy to how to get rid of small acne scars spend the rest of his life with is someone I how to get rid of small acne scars can relate to and care about. A muscular white pretty boy with no concept of commitment how to get rid of small acne scars is not. Unless he was also a golddigger who grew up poor how to get rid of small acne scars and used his looks to seduce powerful men and gain how to get rid of small acne scars control over them and their business assets. Anything that would provide the opportunity for great bitchy drama. Why not show two gay men fighting over the same how to get rid of small acne scars man? We never stopped wanting gay characters. We just wanted well-written ones. Don’t make being gay the story of every gay character how to get rid of small acne scars in and of itself, but don’t shy away from it either. Once in awhile, throw in something socially relevant like the effects of anti-gay discrimination or bullying. Show how the community would react to a gay bashing, but don’t use that as an excuse to bury the gays: a recovery storyline might be even more interesting because then how to get rid of small acne scars you could give him.

Remember jodie from [italic]soap[/italic]? He angered both the religious wrong and some gay activists, but he actually did things. He was a gay man living in a homophobic yet how to get rid of small acne scars sex-obsessed world, and he kept trying to be what he thought everyone how to get rid of small acne scars else wanted him to be, and it cost him the love of his life. 40 years later we actually have rights, we actually have openly gay people in positions of power how to get rid of small acne scars in the private and public sectors. We need characters that reflect a wider spectrum of gay how to get rid of small acne scars lives the way we really are.
