That’s it, ladies and gentleman, the word is in and the votes are unanimous, the Book of Daniel has been officially cancelled as of this week. NBC has pulled the plug on the show and will not even be airing the rest of the episodes. There is some talk though that the Bravo channel may air the remainder but it is very doubtful. This means that all the thousands of individuals who were boycotting the show because of it’s content have received their wish and can now go back to watching a good wholesome show like the O.C. or Trading Spouses or even any of the other reality shows that provide humor from peoples embarrassment and tragedy.
I realize that I have a biased opinion here about the show (Book of Daniel) and I am not trying to slam these other shows that I mentioned above…they were picked up so there is something appealing about them. I am just simply stating (because it is MY BLOG) that these other shows have worse content at times i.e. drugs, sex, infidelity, murder and push the envelope even farther (with what they DO show) than Book of Daniel did, yet that wasn’t even mentioned from what I understand. Granted I didn’t watch all the debates or read both sides of the arguments, but I know what I see on television and what I filmed and I just don’t think it was a fair call protesting even before the first episode aired three weeks ago. If it was the religious aspect of the show, NBC showing Jesus appearing to Aiden Quinn’s character, I have a few thoughts about that. I do understand before getting into anything that there are TWO subjects one should never really get into debate over: Politics and Religion. Clearly I think I am treading a fine line here but if I can’t voice MY OWN opinions here, where can I, you know? I was raised Roman Catholic to which I am very devout to this day. I can say openly though that I do not practice as often as I would like but that is my own issue that must be dealt with. Also, isn’t a priest supposed to interact with Jesus, no matter which specific religion (Catholic, Methodist, Protestant, Episcopalian, etc.)? Isn’t he/she supposed to be the direct link between us, the congregation, and the Almighty? So what’s the deal if this particular character on the show (Aiden) happens to interact with his own idea of who the Lord is and not just when popping pills but when there are other emotional issues that affect him or his family? Don’t they give prescription drugs to those who experience pain or terrible loss? What won’t be aired is how Aiden Quinn got started on taking pain killers, the terrible trauma he and his family experienced. Perhaps that would’ve given some insight and answered a few questions….or maybe not, but now we’ll never know. Anyways, if I am completely way off base here, please feel free to comment on this entry. You are always welcome to and I read it often. Perhaps we should just move on to another topic.
Guiding Light has been going really well lately, despite the loss of Crystal Hunt (whom I do speak with on a regular basis and who is doing well though she misses her NY family). Marcy Rylan (new Lizzie Spaulding) has been doing very well in her new shoes, so to speak, and is carrying the Coop, Lizzie, Ava, Quinn storyline on very intensely. As I said before, I believe her episodes will start airing first week of February, so please tune in and tell me what you think!
Right now, in our story there are a lot of secrets going on, some behind my back and some right in front of me and I’m just too naive to believe differently, I am such a sucker, you know! I am trying to also be strong for my family which is not easy due to the fact that we, the Coopers, have no idea where Gus or Alan are and Harley is losing it more and more everyday and I don’t know what I can do to help out. I guess Coop is just feeling very overwhelmed at the moment and is turning to those he can trust, meaning Ava even more than he has already. After all, hasn’t she been there for him through thick and thin and doesn’t it appear that they might make a cute couple?
:) As for Coop and Ava, I love it. You guys are cute. - Lindsay
I like the little twist between you and Ava on the show :) It keeps me wondering what you are going to do?!?!?!- Lorrie
Anyway, keep watching to find out what happens to Coop and Ava and Lizzie and Quinn next, I guarantee that it will knock your sox off, LOL!
As for those of you who tuned into the Martha Stewart show today and saw me, thank you for your positive feedback. I was first caught off guard that I was going to be on finally but was even more struck by what a babbling moron I sounded like at times, LOL. Of course, Martha did move from one subject to the next pretty quickly so I guess I was just trying to “keep up” with the conversation. Anyway, thank you all for taking the time to write me and respond to my Crystal Hunt sharing stories offer, they were great.
For those of you who received pix and responses to e-mails, you see I told you I was working on it! For those who haven’t gotten one yet, patience is a virtue I don’t have but I really hope you do;p
Once last thing before I go though, I want to give a special acknowledgement to a woman who just recently posted on my site, Ms. Monique M. I will not give too much away about her as you all may already know from reading the responses that she knows me pretty well and I her. The truth is that Monique was the first manager I ever really had when I started back in the day as a model at the age of 17. She was the one who always pushed me and helped me understand where I was in my career but told me to work harder and that I would go far. I never forgot her and she has never forgotten me, as you all see. Monique, I am truly sorry for your loss and I can’t begin to understand how much losing someone so close can hurt. What I can offer to you though is my love and prayers in this time of mourning to you and your family and the memory that you were always a strong woman and never let anything or anyone drag you down. I know that with time you will heal and accept that your mom is always with you and watches you with every step you do and will take. God Bless you Monique “MO”!
All the best to you all and hope to hear from you all soon,
