Okay, random post…. just because.

Editorial over. There are quite a few articles in the press section for 2011. The scans, as always, are linked through the article to the gallery.
Huge DAYS Casting Change!
Soap Opera Digest has learned that Emmy winner Natalia Livingston (ex-Emily/Rebecca, GH), who just started airing three weeks ago as DAYS’s Taylor, has been let go and replaced with another Emmy winner who used to call Port Charles home — Tamara Braun (ex-Ava, DAYS; ex-Carly, GH et al). Braun appeared as Ava in 2008 and took home a golden trophy for her Salem performances in 2009. She will start taping today; look for her to first air in late April. “It was decided to take the character of Taylor in a new direction,” explains Co-Executive Producer Gary Tomlin. “Natalia Livingston is an amazing actress and a consummate professional. She is a class act and everyone at the studio adores her.”
I want to thank Lisa for the heads up on this news. While I would have loved to have seen Ava back in Salem, it’s good news that Tamara will once again be gracing our screens and rest assured, TAMARA OBSCURA will be here to keep you up on Tamara’s new role.
Don’t forget to check out my site for Tamara’s DAYS OF OUR LIVES co-star, Stephen Nichols @ RENEGADE ~ STEPHEN NICHOLS ONLINE. The reason for the plug? Stephen is on the same show as Eden Riegel. Ironic that both of Tamara’s ex on-screen loves are on the same show. Of course on DOOL, Tamara played Ava Vitali, the role in which she won her Emmy for Best Supporting Actress on a Daytime Soap Opera. Now all we need is for Tamara to show up on Y&R as a love interest for both Tucker McCall (Stephen’s character) and Heather Stevens (Eden’s character on the show). Ronan and Ashely (Eileen Davidson) who? Just kidding………
As promised, I’m back with what I won’t call, the round up on the Emmy Awards. I might have some other images to go up next month. I broke the bank this month. But fear not, at least there will be something to look forward to for next month. I was able to obtain some 73 HI-RES images of Tamara during the various moments throughout her big night. I’ve also decided to create one section within the gallery for all the images: Press, media, etc. Just so there’s a vault of sorts for Tamara’s Emmy win. I’ve also created for OBSCURE MEDIA an omnibus edition of the night’s festivities and press. The link will be in the list of additions, plus the embed here in this post. Enjoy.
Here is the Emmy Night roundup. Sorry I didn’t have these up last night. I’ve been feeling a little under the weather lately, and just kind of went to be feeling a little more euphoric than I likely would have. I’m so proud of Tamara. She was humble as always in accepting her award, and I loved she didn’t have anything prepared. It must have been the night for improv reactions. Vincent Irrizary and Darin Brook’s ‘f-bomb’ was just what old-style awards shows used to be about. The spontineity of them all. But in the end, Tamara’s now in a different realm. With that little guy in her possession, the sky’s the limit. I couldn’t be happier that her mother Reneta was there with her. Fitting she’s been with Tamara throughout all the successes. A special shout out to Tamara’s mom for raising such a wonderful daughter. And thank you Tamara for making my night. I’ve got watermarked images from various news photographic sites for you. I might have some HI-RES ones a bit later. I’ll post anew when I get them. I have video of the entire night with Tamara vis a vi OBSCURE MEDIA. Enjoy.
