Here finally are the uploads for last week. Apologies it took so long to get these done but I’m still feeling the dizziness. Still not sure what’s causing it, but I think I’m getting to the point I’m coping with it. Thank the gods there’s no nausea or else I’d be a goner. The rest of the uploads will follow in a series of separate posts. Enjoy.

Apologies for the extreme lateness of this post. I had a couple of appointments yesterday plus some quality time with my partner. I’m going to ask this one question that so far has remained unanswered: When does Tamara get her own story and drive it? Seems her primary job is to forever be the cheerleader for Julian (William De Vry). She’s also very much a hypocrite. Her first episode back had Kim chastising Sonny (Maurice Benard), openly, for his being a mobster, yet here she is wanting to get together with Julian even though he’s committed crimes of his own. They are:

– Committed various crimes while working for and running the Jerome organization [1988-1990]
– Kidnapped and murdered his sister Olivia [1990]
– Killed Johnathon Paget during a gunfight [1990]
– Operated an online gambling ring and knowingly lured Morgan Corinthos into gambling debt [revealed Aug 2, 2013]
– Shot Vince, a henchman within his organization, and left him to die in the harbor [Sept 16, 2013]
– Ordered Carlos Rivera to destroy a shipment that belonged to Sonny Corinthos [Sep 18, 2013]
– Ordered his henchmen to ransack the Corinthos coffee warehouse [revealed Oct 23, 2013]
– Ordered Carlos Rivera to kill Morgan Corinthos [Oct 28, 2013]
– Imported and distributed illegal drugs [Apr-May 2014]
– Arrested for drug trafficking [May 21, 2014]
– Shot Mickey Diamond [Jul 29, 2014]
– Arrested on charges of fraud and conspiracy to aid in the wrongful imprisonment of Luke Spencer [Dec 3, 2014]
– Ordered Carlos Rivera to kidnap Ric Lansing and hold him in the trunk of a car [Dec 18, 2014]
– Falsely confessed to the murder of Anthony Zacchara and sentenced to Pentonville [Jan 8, 2015; charges dropped Feb 18, 2015]
– Escaped from prison [Jan 29, 2015]
– Shot Johnny Zacchara in the shoulder [Feb 3, 2015]

While Kim may believe in second chances, I’d say she needs to be a little more even in her condemnation of criminality. But then given we see her so little, my feeling is no one cares. Right now Tamara is averaging about seven episodes per month despite the fact she is a proven talent. I could care less about he “chem” test with De Vry, they need to cut their losses and make her Carly again because right now most of the boards I’m on are tired of “you know who” and her yelling, snarling, grimacing…. You get the drift. They’re also saying they want Tamara as Carly. That call is clear. Now whether the powers that be or the ubiquitous TPTB listen is another matter altogether. So here we still sit waiting for the storyline we were promised. (or the Prince that was promised….. Game of Thrones reference).

A new scan added to the gallery and the text to the press section. Tamara gave some answers to Soap Opera Digest’s Take Five section. Her answers are so cute, along with the picture of her and her puppy, Little. Click on the image to get to the scan in the gallery.

My apologies for the lateness of this post, but I had company for dinner. I had to get everything done after my friends when home. Here is today’s media. I’m sorry for the quick cutting in the clip. The program I use was being a little difficult tonight and I had little patience with it. Hopefully it’s not that bad for you.

Media for today. Is anyone at all interested in “Karly” with Julian (William De Vry)? I know I’m not and quite frankly, I’m still wondering why they brought Tamara back to have her just basically sit on the sidelines. She’s on way too infrequently for my liking. Valentini wanted her back then he should be using her. Tamara is one of soap’s VIPs and he’s just having her play third wheel in two stories. So far I’m not impressed with the Jason (Steve Burton) return, or with Tamara’s return. It all feels so hollow and false. Putting her in scenes with Michael (Chad Duell) and any with Jackie Zeman who plays Bobbie would just be like smacking that beehive with the stick with the obvious.

The latest edition of Soap Opera Digest has a retrospective of the history of LGBTQ in soap operas. The significant mention from ALL MY CHILDREN is Eden Riegel as being one of the first lesbians in daytime. She was very significant due to her being the daughter of none other than Erica Kane (Susan Lucci). In the pictorial it mentions the first lesbian wedding in daytime. Of course the other half of that was our own Tamara Braun as Reese Williams. There’s no text link to the press section since the article indirectly mentions Tamara.
