http://media.cakecentral.com/files/thumbs/t_days_of_our_lives_logo_113.jpgWill Horton is furious with his mother in the aftermath of his brother’s disappearance.

(Thinking her son was dead, Will’s mom had sex with her ex-husband and Will walked in on them. He is now trying to get her to admit it.)

“You abandoned your family when we needed you the most,” Will says to his mom. “What kind of mother does that to her kids?”

Chandler Massey continues to impress us with his performance and the previews show us that much more drama is to come!

Morning Man Encore: Peter Krause!

http://seat42f.com/images/stories/peter-krause-gq.jpgOriginally posted Oct. 13, 2009

There were so many reasons to mourn the cancellation of ABC’s Dirty Sexy Money last year. One of the biggest was that we wouldn’t be able to see Peter Krause on TV each week.

But that will change early next year when NBC’s Parenthood premieres as a mid-season replacement series.

Peter is, of course, best known for his five seasons as Nate Fisher on HBO’s late, great series Six Feet Under. He and Michael C. Hall (Dexter) played brothers who run the family’s funeral home business. His girlfriend was played by Rachel Griffiths. What a cast! Peter earned three Emmy nominations for his performance as Nate.

Before that show, Peter spent three years co-starring on the acclaimed ABC comedy Sports Night opposite Felicity Huffman, among others.

It’ll be great to have him back in another show!

Will Novak Djokovic follow Roger Federer’s stellar career path or fade as Mats Wilander did?

http://www.spotlightofpeace.com/sports/wp-content/uploads/2011/09/us-open-2011-trophy-djokovic.jpg

http://www.sportszest.com/wp-content/uploads/2011/07/Novak-Djokovic-_Wimbledon-2011-champion-300x168.jpg

http://tennis-pronostics.com/sites/default/files/winnercup/wilander_australie_198x.jpgCan a tennis player win three grand slam singles titles in a single year, ascend to the number one ranking for the first time then lose his edge forever and fade into oblivion?

It happened to Swedish star Mats Wilander after his stellar 1988 season and I’m wondering if the same fate awaits  Novak Djokovic who finished his spectacular season this week by losing more matches in three days than he did in the first seven months of the year.

Djokovic was eliminated earlier today from the ATP World Tour Finals and has not won a tournament since his US Open victory in early September. He has won Wimbledon and the Australian Open plus seven other tournaments in 2011.

“What is missing … is that freshness,” Djokovic said after losing 3-6, 6-3, 6-3 to fellow Serb Janko Tipsarevic. “The will to win, just being on the court, giving 100 percent. I’m not able to do that now because I just have very little left.”

He finishes the year with a 71-6 record.

The real test comes in January and the Australian Open. Will Djokovic, who spent more than four years ranked third in world behind Roger Federer and Rafael Nadal, have regained his freshness and will to win by then?

Federer managed to win three majors in a singles season in 2004, 2006 and 2007 and two slams in 2005 and 2009. He always came back strong as had Nadal who won three slams in 2010 and two slams in 2008.

Back in 1988, Wilander broke through after more than five years in the top four. He had won a pair of French Opens (1982 and 1985) and Australian Opens (1983 and 1984) but found himself overshadowed by the likes of John McEnroe, Boris Becker and especially Ivan Lendl.

Much like Djokovic, he stayed close then eventually overtook his rivals in 1988 to win his third French Open, third Australian Open and first US Open. He also became number one for the first time and he was just 25.

What did he do for an encore?

Not much.

Wilander quickly faded after spending five months as number one. By the end of 1990, he was ranked number 49 and in 1993, was ranked 330. He managed to climb back to number 46 in 1995 and retired the next year.

In all, Wilander won seven slam singles titles and was inducted into the International Tennis Hall of Fame. Djokovic is at four and counting while Federer has won 16 and Nadal 10.

Time will tell if Djokovic will be another Wilander or continue his march to all-time greatness.

Kelly Ripa enjoyed seeing Mark Consuelos kiss man

http://welovesoaps.com/wls23/standing.jpg

http://danshamptons.com/wp-content/uploads/2011/08/KellyRipa.jpg?1cd427There was an article on Huffington Post about actor Mark Consuelos appearing in Standing On Ceremony: The Gay Marriage Plays and stopping the interview because he became distracted by a video clip of a dancing Rob Kardashian and his ample rear end.

Mark, who is married to Kelly Ripa, is not only secure enough in his sexuality to comment on Rob’s assets. he also was willing to make out with actor Craig Bierko in the play.

“Um, I didn’t tell [Kelly] about the kiss, wanted her to be surprised,” Mark said.”She loved it. I thought she could relate.”

Kelly even had some kissing tips: “Craig Bierko is a very handsome man. I asked Kelly to give me notes and she gave me two after seeing the show.[She said] ‘Don’t strong-arm Craig when he goes in for the kiss’ and ‘don’t strong-arm Craig when he goes in for the kiss.’”

Kelly confirmed to the NY Daily News that she enjoyed watching the lip lock: “As an actor, there’s something voyeuristic and perversely sexy about watching my husband” kiss someone else.

“I Love Lucy” Friday: Ricky loses it after Lucy pretends she’s his agent and gets him fired from MGM!

http://archuletafanscene.com/wp-content/uploads/2009/09/ricky-ricardo1.jpghttp://1.bp.blogspot.com/_YFS17mmqOb0/R_R83CxmrXI/AAAAAAAAAAc/51Q-PX97yAQ/s320/I+love+lucy.jpgAll Lucy wanted to do was get Ricky another movie at MGM after Don Juan was shelved.

So, without telling Ricky, she sets up a meeting with a studio exec and shows up pretending to be his agent. When she tells the exec that Ricky has a big Broadway offer, they release him from his contract!

Today’s scene is Lucy telling Ricky about what she’s done and we see him lose his temper in an unprecedented way by destroying the living room.

My favorite line is when Lucy is reaching under the couch to clean things up and Ethel walks in and says: “He killed her and tried to hide her body under the couch!”

Friday Morning Man: George Houvardas!

http://images.safm.com.au/2009/02/03/119862/rac-packed-to-the-rafters-1-600x400.jpg

George Houvardas Australian actor George Houvardas poses during a Heath Ledger tribute outdoor movie night at Burswood Park on February 12, 2011 in Perth, Australia. Australian actor Heath Ledger won a posthumous Oscar for his portrayal of the Joker in the movie The Dark Knight. Ledger died from an accidental toxic combination of prescription drugs on January 22, 2008.

George Houvardas is an Australian actor who is best known for his role as Nick “Carbo” Karandonis in the television series Packed to the Rafters.

He hit it big right out of the gate as Rafters was his first acting role after his first audition.

Since then, George has done a guest spot on the Australian series East West 101 and participated in his country’s version of Dancing With the Stars.

He describes himself as a “late bloomer” in the acting department.

“Acting has always been something I wanted to do, ever since I was a kid,”  the 27-year-old says on the official site for Rafters.

But it was a dream he didn’t pursue until his early 20s. “After I finished school, I began a building diploma at TAFE,” he recalls. “I thought if the acting bug is still there when I turn 21, I’ll pursue it.”

George Houvardas Actor George Houvardas  attends the Music For Children Ball, raising funds to expand music programs for disadvantaged and Indigenous children throughout Australia, at the Four Seasons Hotel on August 8, 2009 in Sydney, Australia.

Prop8plaintiffs

The American Foundation for Equal Rights (AFER), the group formed specifically to challenge the constitutionality of Prop 8, California’s gay marriage ban, has released this Thanksgiving video from the two couples who are the lead plaintiffs in the lawsuit seeking to overturn the ban.
They are Jeff Zarrillo and Paul Katami, and Kristin Perry and Sandra Stier and they are thankful for their relationships.
Said Zarrillo:  “It would be really important that if this was the year that we could finally get married. That this would be our last Thanksgiving as bachelors,” he said.

Dustin Lance Black on former Academy Awards producer Brett Ratner: “I absolutely forgave him.”

http://collider.com/wp-content/image-base/People/D/Dustin_Lance_Black/Dustin%20Lance%20Black%20(1).jpgDustin Lance Black, who won the Oscar for his Milk screenplay, could score another nomination for J. Edgar.

He was among the screenwriters and potential award nominees who participated in a roundtable with The Hollywood Reporter. It’s an interesting conversation that also includes Pedro Almodovar, 62 (The Skin I Live In), Oren Moverman, 45 (Rampart), Eric Roth, 66 (Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close), Aaron Sorkin, 50 (Moneyball) and Steven Zaillian, 58 (The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo, Moneyball).

Black was asked if he was offended by then-Oscars producer Brett Ratner’s remark that “rehearsal’s for fags.” (He resigned days after the remark became public).

Black, who is also a well-known LGBT equality activist, said: “Absolutely. Of course. I think a lot of people were, not just gay people. But I also read the letter he put out [to apologize] and I found it incredibly moving. So, I’ll go on record: I absolutely forgave him. I hope he does the things he said he’s doing in that letter. Those are learning experiences. We all mess up. It’s what you do on the other side that counts.”

Novak Djokovic loses in upside down ATP Finals

Serbia's Novak Djokovic ArrivesWorld number one Novak Djokovic looked awfully sexy walking onto the court to play David Ferrer today at the ATP Finals in London.

But looking good was all Novak had going for him as he went on to lose 6-3, 6-1 in the round robin match. He will have to win his next match in order to have any chance of reaching the semifinals.

The men’s tennis season is ridiculously too long (11 months) and Djokovic is clearly out of gas after winning 11 tournaments this year including Wimbledon, the US Open and the Australian Open.  He had lost just two matches as of the end of the US Open but has lost three since.

His lopsided loss came a day after number four Roger Federer routed second-ranked Rafael Nadal 6-3, 6-0 and number three Andy Murray dropped out with an injury.

Except for Federer, the world’s top male players are running on fumes!

Daytime Soap Clip: Will’s missing little brother Johnny is found safe but Will suffers new trauma

Will hasn’t even come out of the closet yet and he’s already gone through the ringer in recent days.

His little brother, Johnny, disappeared and when a body is found, news reports state that it is Johnny. (Someone better be fired from that fictional news station!)

But Will and his stepfather Rafe find the boy safe and Will go looking for his mom to share the news. What he walks in on is a really shocking scene! You will have to watch to find out.

Happy 63rd Birthday to Bruce Vilanch!

http://farm4.static.flickr.com/3461/3962880802_60190bf678.jpgNow that Billy Crystal has replaced Eddie Murphy as host of the 2012 Academy Awards, it’s a safe bet that funnyman Bruce Vilanch will be asked back as a writer for the Oscars.

I just love this man’s T-shirts and his terrific sense of humor.

Bruce, who turns 63 today, has been coming up with funny lines for Oscar hosts and presenters for decades now.

“I think people have a better time if it’s funny,” he told me in an interview last year about the Oscars. “It’s such a pompous occasion, so much self-importance. These are career-changing moments for people who have a great deal invested professionally so the humor helps to level that a little bit. It’s a show, it’s showbiz.”

Happy birthday to this great talent!

Jesse Tyler Ferguson: “I was taught how to cook a turkey dinner by none other than Martha Stewart.”

http://regent.blogs.com/.a/6a00d8341ca4b653ef013488dd61bf970c-320wiI’d rather wear cactus shorts than try and cook a meal under the supervision of a perfectionist like Martha Stewart!

But Modern Family star Jesse Tyler Ferguson did have the guts to get into the kitchen with Martha – to prepare a Thanksgiving meal no less!

He shares the experience in a column for Huffington Post. Here are some excerpts:

I was taught how to cook a turkey dinner by none other than Martha Stewart. Not through the help of her website or cookbooks. Oh no! I’m talking about an “in-the-flesh” Martha Stewart standing next to an “in-the-flesh” Jesse Tyler Ferguson and teaching him how to prepare a Thanksgiving dinner that was, in her words, “certain to impress.”

I would like to report that I did a pretty bang-up job. It wasn’t without its struggles and improvisation, however. For instance, I couldn’t find the beautiful clear plastic bin that looked like it was created for the sole purpose brining a 20-pound turkey. I had to settle on a paint bucket, which disturbed me a little… but hey, it was better than the garbage bag I’d used the year before at my sister’s apartment. The stuffing was delicious, as was the gravy. In fact, the whole meal was pretty spot-on. The shame of Martha looked down upon me only once: as I carved through the turkey, I cut right into the bag of giblets — I’d forgotten to remove them from the bird’s cavity.

I pride myself on making the holidays special for my friends and family. Come Christmastime, you can bet you will find me frosting the sour cream cookies my mom used to make, decorating the entire house with garlands and candles and making homemade peppermint ice cream (thank you, Williams-Sonoma ice cream maker). I get great joy from creating the perfect Norman Rockwell holiday. This is why I think I might be Martha Stewart’s brother from another mother.

Here is a LINK to Jesse’s Huffington Post column in its entirety.

Wednesday Morning Man: Alexander Marquardt!

http://abcmedianet.com/assets/bios-thumbs/6113cf3b-1a0c-40c5-b4cd-57800054c2f3.jpg

There aren’t many photos that I could find of Alexander Marquardt, an ABC News reporter based in Jerusalem.

But, thankfully, I found just enough of this dashing foreign correspondent to do a Morning Man feature.

Not only is this guy handsome, he also speaks fluent French and has a command of Italian and Spanish.

Before being assigned to the Middle East, Marquardt had previously been based in Moscow. He came to ABC News in June 2009 from CNN, where he covered the 2008 presidential election.

Prior to joining CNN, Marquardt was an anchor and correspondent at Channel One News, the in-school television network watched daily by six million students nationwide. He anchored the channel’s news program and covered stories from across the country, as well as from Cuba.

Marquardt started his career in television news as an NBC page after graduating from Georgetown University with a bachelor’s degree in Science, Technology and International Affairs.
