As The World Turns: Cady McClain
If you had any doubt that Cady McClain was fabulous, before, this should clear things up! She goes down in my book as one of my favorite celebs, EVER! Read the full interview posted at Soap Central
It’s not that I don’t support daytime. Sometimes I just get frustrated when there are opportunities and people just don’t want to hear it. People don’t want to hear the truth. And the person who speaks what I see as my truth, certainly, often takes a hit for it.
Why is it that people like Ms. McClain are never in charge of daytime? Seemingly, the only people hired in executive roles are those who throw on the cheerleading outfits, the blinders, and who keep cheering on one crapload of bad storytelling after another. I have to wonder if people who are as critical as McClain and others could have turned this genre around while there was still time. Fans have been speaking truth to daytime for a LONG time… and no one listens. The ratings fall… and no one listens. The actors speak out… and no one listens. I’m gonna’ miss daytime when it goes!
