Nelson Branco is a douchebag part 9
“It was not handled with class. I really believe that after the sixth death, it’s a hostile act. I don’t understand why this character has always got to be killed.” “[On my final] day, my executive producer, Gary Tomlin, wasn’t there.”
—Thaao Penghlis (ex-Tony, DAYS) to Soap Opera Digest on his umpteenth firing
Translation: Kill me off a handful of times, shame on you. Kill me off a sixth time, shame on me.
That's from the Douchebag's Suds Report on Friday. The Douchebag really needs to get over his obsession with Thaao. He never interviewed Thaao. He needs to stop cherrypicking Thaao's quotes from LEGITIMATE sources and bashing him.
First off, the sixth death is a bit of an exaggeration on Thaao's part. Thaao's played a character that has died that lead to his firing 3 times, not 6. Andre 1995, Andre 2004, and "Tony" 2009. Thaao counts the times that JER had Andre get fatally injured yet survived; the castle pit "death" and being stabbed in the neck by John on the island. The Diva is missing a death! lol That's 5. Anyone know the sixth death?
Anyway, two of Thaao's firings can be blamed squarely on JER. This last firing seems to be Gary Tomlin, JER protege's, fault. Still, the Douchebag blaming Thaao for being killed off is ridiculous. Considering that the Douchebag is a failed, wannabe soap actor, he should have more respect for a 3 soap vet that's been acting on soaps for almost thirty years. The Diva doesn't think it's right to bash an actor for returning to a soap they have been fired from. The actors needs to make a living. With soaps constantly hiring and firing writers and producers, why not come back if the douchebags that fired you are gone? With all that being said, Corday's a moron. He never should have fired the vets to begin with.
Things will be hopping on the blog shortly. We have the Ben episode on Lost tonight. woohoo! The Diva cannot wait to discuss with you faithful followers the Mary Beth and Stephen interview in this week's SOD. Also we will be discussing the pathetic death of Tony DiMera, and Leann's token last episode.
Congrats to the Douchebag for winning the Diva poll. Kenny gave him a helluva fight. Maybe if Kenny fights with and bans more posters at Douchebag Royalty he'll win next time.
