Welcome to TAMARA BRAUN ONLINE a site dedicated to Emmy Award Winning actress and activist Tamara Braun. Known for her best known roles as Ava Vitali (Days of our Lives), Reese Williams (All My Children) and Carly Corinthos/Dr. Kim Nero (General Hospital). Tamara as quite a few prime time credits to her name including Bosch, CSI, Saving Grace, Supernatural, Freddie, Castle, Without a Trace, House and including the films Little Chenier, Limbo Lounge, Fallen Arches, Pretty Rosebud. Tamara is also an activist lending her name and time to many charities and causes to create change in the world. This site has a strict NO CANDIDS POLICY. To read that please click the link.

Here’s today’s media. Tamara’s scene at the elevator with Finn (Michael Easton) was cute. I also loved her with Drew (Billy Miller). Though like I’ve said before I’m still seeing her as Carly. And when she’s on the old sets like Kelly’s I yearn for her to be Carly again. Can’t help it. A bit of information about Thursday and Friday. I have been undergoing therapy for the vertigo I still suffer from. I have rehab tomorrow and then on Friday my partner and I are going to see The Avengers: Infinity War. We plan on going to dinner first then the movie. I likely won’t be home until later so if Tamara is on I won’t have everything up until later Friday night. That is Friday’s episode. Thursday’s if Tamara is on will be up when I get home from rehab.

Sorry for how late in the day these are, but I had some tweaking of the media section and some of the video files I had to do. As for today’s episode I’m still trying hard to accept Tamara as Kim. I’m trying…. Really I am. I’m still not buying it though not when I’m seeing not just shades of Carly, but whole swathes of her coming out in Tamara’s portrayal. What I’m seeing is Carly at this age. Carly in this state of being and Carly in this day and age. The one thing I have to take umbrage with this show on is their constant use of Tamara in a supporting role. It’s clear they do not think of her in a lead capacity and this reinforces my feeling Tamara has signed short-term. Otherwise she’d be driving these stories instead of being a supporting player to Julian (William deVry) and Drew (Billy Miller), and to a degree Oscar (Garren Lake Stitt). How you can tell this is the amount of time the camera is on her and from what direction the scenes are being told from. Most of the tags on scenes are from the other player’s point-of-view, not Kim’s. It’s been five months and Tamara has had a total of 40 episodes so far, grossly under any of the other soaps she’s been on. During her time as Carly (2001-2005) Tamara was on during the average month 20 episodes. In the average year she had about 240 episodes because she was a lead actress at that time. When she went to DAYS OF OUR LIVES as Ava Vitali both times, she was on at average of 20 episodes per month. Same with her role of Taylor Walker, and as Reese Williams on ALL MY CHILDREN. As Ava, Taylor, Reese, and Carly she was in the lead capacity as we got to see things from Ava/Taylor/Reese/Carly’s point-of-view. She was driving her own stories. Whatever Ava/Taylor/Reese/Carly did she affected other people’s stories by her actions. Here none of her actions affects anyone or anything. Yeah, you could say bringing on Oscar affected Drew’s story, but Oscar was already on the canvas. Kim didn’t bring Oscar on. On DAYS the character of Tripp Dalton (Lucas Adams) wouldn’t be on if not for Ava and what she did to affect Steve (Stephen Nichols) storyline. She had her cause and affect. Kim has no cause or effect. I hadn’t planned on another commentary, but when I got typing it just came out. Like it or not.

I’d like to take a bit of space to wish Tamara the happiest of birthdays. She has never looked more beautiful and vibrant. It’s my sincere wish she spends today with her furbaby Little and surrounds herself with family and friends.

A cute day with Tamara and William deVry (Julian Jerome). I think their chemistry is cute, but gosh I miss Tamara’s scenes with Steve Burton (Jason Morgan) and Maurice Benard (Sonny Corinthos). I watch the show and I somehow feel something is radically missing in the show. While I might possibly warm to Kim, I’m not really sure I will given that she’s on a show that so far has grossly underused her and belittled her fanbase with not bringing her back as Carly. Yeah, I know……

New press scans for the gallery and article for the press section. We are finally getting some direction for K(arly)im in terms of where she might be going. As per the episode on 2018/04/05 where she told Julian (William deVry) her true feelings for Drew (Billy Miller) and on 2018/04/06 where Oscar/Morgan (Garren Lake Stitt) confronted his mother, here’s hoping Tamara is out of storyline limbo. Not too sure what to believe about this spoiler on Celebrity Dirty Laundry but according to them K(arly)im will end up pregnant from her one-night-stand with Julian. So are you going to tell me a woman who is an OBGYN doctor is NOT going to use contrceptives? Is GENERAL HOSPITAL and or Frank Valentini going to further insult our intelligence? Likely. He can’t seem to help himself. Remember though right now those “spoilers” from CDL are just theoretical and not actual fact. But hey….. You can click on the press link in the post to go to the article.

Here is today’s episode and clips. By and large I liked today’s episode. The scenes Tamara had with Garren Lake Stitt (Oscar Nero) were really good and he’s such a good young actor. The downside is that I still see her as Carly and him as Morgan.

An update on the progress of Tamara’s DAYS OF OUR LIVES clips as Ava Vitali. I’ve been having trouble trying to locate a few of early April 2008 episodes. I have at least three hard drives the clips are scattered over due to having to move my data from different computers after having issues to do with hard drive failures, or having to reformat hard drives, to other computer issues. I’m in the process of locating those and I’m hoping to be able to begin clipping up April’s episodes sometime this weekend. I had another appointment today regarding the vertigo and I have another early tomorrow. I know Tamara is on GENERAL HOSPITAL tomorrow due to the preview I’ve seen. I’ll have that up sometime tomorrow late. Thanks for understanding. This of course is barring anything else that might either befall me this weekend, or if I can find the clips.

We’re finally back. There was some hinkiness going on with the site today. For some reason it was redirecting to my Ted King site. Ghosts in the machinery and all. I have no idea why it was doing that and I should say it was just the main site, not the media, filmography or press section because those are all on the tamarabraun.org domain. So now we’re back I can get the update done. A word about the featured image for both the clip and the post. Tamara is slowly beginning to embrace her inner Carly. In today’s episode she put her hands on her hips a la our Carly. I was so happy to see this, but then she’s been doing a lot of things that are more like Carly than like this concoction Kim or as call her K(arly)im. Sorry gotta call it as I sees it because I still see her as Carly. Plain and simple and the featured clip and post image shows that imperatively. Why not just cut your losses GH and give Tamara the part back?
