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 is the media for today’s episode. Not much to say since I gave the update in my tweet earlier.

In the latest edition of ABC Soaps in Depth where they celebrate GENERAL HOSPITAL‘s 55th Anniversary, there is an article on the Julian (William deVry) and Alexis (Nancy Lee Grahn) pairing and whether Julian’s dalliance with Kim means the end of the couple. It’s pretty benign as to what it says and no direct mention of Tamara so I’m not including the article in the press section, only the scans in the gallery. If you want to read the article you can click below for the scans and go to the gallery and read them yourself.

Well another day where Tamara doesn’t drive her own story or do anything else but play drag to other characters’ stories including Julian (William deVry) and Alexis (Nancy Lee Grahn) and Drew (Billy Miller) and Sam (Kelly Monaco)? Judging by what I’m seeing on Twitter no one wants her in the Julian/Alexis sturm and drang. In fact they’re pretty much demanding her stay out of their couple’s orbit. I have a guess the Drew/Sam fans feel the same way so where does that leave Tamara….. Exactly?!

Today’s episode was very hard to watch. Hard to watch because I cannot stand Laura Wright and how she plays “her version” of Carly. When I think of when Tamara said, “I loved Carly with my whole heart” and to see how Wright has rolled back all the growth and maturity Tamara infused Carly with in her final few months…. Then seeing them talking about Morgan and remembering how Tamara played out Morgan’s birth in November 2003, I’m even more in the mind that bringing Tamara back as anyone other than Carly was wrong. If you’ll remember that little sneaky thing I did with the video from 2018/03/15 – “General Hospital” Episode #1.14038 when I slipped in the clip of Liz (Rebecca Herbst) seeing Carly in the Panic Room, I would love to slip in the clip of Tamara’s Carly giving birth to Morgan with a bullet in her head. It infuriates me to know that Wright derided Tamara’s portrayal, and now she’s kissing Tamara’s butt knowing full well Tamara is the better actress, yet she’s garnered for herself another Emmy nomination for a role Tamara should have won best actress for before her from the whole 2003 year. I’m further infuriated when I think of how the writing and story is not using Tamara to her fullest. We her fans know what she’s capable of. We know she can play almost everything and anything and make us feel for her. Even playing Ava Vitali on DAYS OF OUR LIVES she made us feel for her to the point that when she was gone, we felt her loss. I have to ask her “fans” one question: Is this what you wanted when you said, “We don’t care who you play, we just want you back on our screens.” Is this what you wanted only to see her on average about six episodes a month? Is this what you wanted to see, her not driving her own stories in the role that without her, Laura Wright wouldn’t still have a job? I know how this is all coming off, but as a fan of Tamara’s I want to see her as Carly. The Carly I grew to love, the Carly I grew to adore because of all of those personal touches Tamara put on her. All of those things Wright, the writing and production have stripped away leaving nothing but a shelled out character with nothing familiar left. I know for me I want to see her as Carly as a doctor working alongside her mother, Bobbie (Jackie Zeman). That’s how Carly should have evolved. Instead they’ve reduced Carly to a sophomoric, brainless shell of her former self. The thing too that is also infuriating is that should Wright eventually walk (which I feel she might) if they keep entwining Tamara into this show in this way, it’ll be harder and harder for her to re-assume Carly should that event arise. And again I know these statements I make might be off putting, but sometimes these words need to be said. I also know I risk making this site unattractive to Tamara’s fans, but again I feel instead of the blindness at which some consume shows like GENERAL HOSPITAL, sometimes reality needs to be interjected. As the great journalist Edward R. Murrow once said, “Goodnight and good luck.”

Here’s what you came for.

In the most recent copy of Soap Opera Digest, actor William deVry (Julian Jerome) talks about the reinvention of the character, but he also talks lovingly about working with Tamara. As usual the scan can be found in the gallery and the text of the article can be found in the press section. I’ll link both below.

Here are the clip and caps for yesterday. Sorry for being late. I did a lot yesterday and was really tired due to the vertigo. I had a nap later in the afternoon and only woke up early evening. There was dinner to get and also my partner and I took some time to remember one year ago yesterday was her quadruple bypass surgery. She’s one year of health and with me being down with this stupid thing we needed some time together. A word about the clip, I’m not sure I got all of Tamara’s scenes due to the breaking news on the home network about the pedestrian bridge collapse in Florida that broke into the feed. I’m hoping Tamara didn’t have any other scenes though I’m pretty sure they’re all there. Anyhoo please enjoy. Let me know how it is.

On time for the first time in about two weeks I think. Update on my condition… I’m feeling much better in terms of not as much vertigo. Still not gone by a long stretch. I go to see the doctor beginning of April in a follow up, but so far (touch wood) I’m feeling not too bad. So here is the clip and caps for today.
