So Why Aren't Jack and Erica Together??

Their parting was muddled at best and their reasons for continuing to be apart seem weak and unclear. Four years ago, May 24, 2005, Jack and Erica finally walked down the aisle and seemingly to their happily ever after. But the marriage was short lived. Now Jack is rarely seen which is a darn shame because I think he would like the new more mature Erica that she has become.


Should Jack and Erica reunite?

Help the Folks Who Bring Us Pratt Falls Make a Difference!

The creators of "Pratt Falls" have developed a new line of t-shirts to celebrate AMC's May Sweeps Murder Mystery. We all know whodunit -- it was Binks. In the boathouse. With the icy glare. Or not. The point is, you can own a classy, hip "Pratt Falls: The Murder Mystery" t-shirt and support a good cause at the same time. T-shirts (and other items) can be purchased at: the Cafe Press/Breese Nation store.

100% of proceeds from sales made on the site will be donated to charity. The Pratt Falls team has chosen to support Equality Now which "works to end violence and discrimination against women and girls around the world." In addition, the founders of Breese Nation will personally match the funds being sent to Equality Now with a donation to Freedom to Marry. FTM is committed to ending gay couples' exclusion from marriage. Therefore, with each purchase, you'll be supporting two great causes for the price of one!

The Cafe Press/Breese Nation store grew out of love of and support for the characters of Bianca Montgomery and Reese Williams and the desire to promote positive change around us. Hundreds of dollars in charitable donations later, it's clear that fans can make a difference. Please contact us at for more information.

CASTING NEWS - Amanda Baker Returns!!!

Yes, you read it right. Amanda Baker is returning to the role of Babe Carey Chandler in June for a couple of shows. But no, Babe is not among the living. Babe will appear to a very troubled JR as a ghost. Look for her appearances near the beginning and at the end of June.

FLASHBACK - May, 1980

As the years in their marriage went by, the very distinguished gentlemen, Dr. Charles Tyler, was growing increasingly more annoyed with his wife, socialite Phoebe Tyler's meddling in other people's lives. At times it was so troubling for Charles that he would seek refuge in his office at the hospital where he served as Chief of Staff. He seeked out the calming and soothing affects that his secretary of many years, Mona Kane, provided him.

Charles had secretly fallen in love with Mona but because of his loyalty to Phoebe, he remained quiet about it. What he didn't know was that Mona had secretly fallen in love with him as well. Eventually when Phoebe's ways were too much for Charles, he told Mona how he felt about her and was thrilled to find the feeling mutual. Charles and Phoebe divorced, paving the way for Charles and Mona to walk down the aisle on May 1, 1980.

Happy Birthday Kate Collins!!!!

Maybe I'm alone in this but I would love to see Amanda go visit her mother, Janet from Another Planet, while she's in a family way, carrying none other than Dr. Evil's child! Janet would stop at nothing to get out of wherever she is (where is she anyway? Annie didn't run into her at Oak Haven, so maybe she's in that prison for the criminally insane where Daddy Cambias is?) and teach David that you don't mess with her Amanda! Oh yes. Where is that storyline? Ahh well, instead we'll just have to wish Kate Collins a very happy 51st birthday.
