Even His Own Employees Can't Stand Him

Mr. Frons does not seem to be making friends wherever he goes.  I was just reading a very interesting article on Deadline.comThe demise of our soaps is far reaching and getting more and more complicated at every turn.  Last year it was announced that Soapnet would be going off the air to make way for the preschool channel, Disney Junior in January 2012.  But is it?   Read all about it HERE.  I was especially interested in the comments by the ABC worker who had plenty to say!   Very interesting read indeed.

I still need to read the article after the link, but I am compelled to compliment your extraordinary Frons photo first. When I created my FireFrons icon I worried that maybe it was a bit unrefined, but it was an improvement over our FirePratt icon so I kept it around. In fact, I've grown sentimental about the little devil. And now to see him dressed up to such perfection with a goatee & strong, cruel brows here, on a classy blogsite, I am literally bursting with pride. Seriously, if Fronshole's extreme assery can inspire you, one of the most respectful people in the blogosphere, to draw little horns and a pitchfork on his picture, ABC really needs to ask itself if they have the right guy "leading the carnival", as Myrtle would say. You doodled a little cartoon devil on a real life bad guy, & I'm confident Father Clarence has a pair of angel wings with your name on them.

LOL Shadow, yours is pretty great too, but I can't take credit for creating it. My friend April made it and sent it to me. It just had to be posted. And thank you for all your kind words, they mean a lot xo

Love the new pic of Frons! He is the devil and I just wish ABC would see that. He's killing ABC Daytime as we know it and I'll bet it will never recover. Unfortunately ABC will see that too late to do anything about our beloved soaps.

WILL THE REAL SUSAN LUCCI PLEASE STAND UP?!

I give so much credit to Robin Strasser. She is telling us exactly how she feels. I hope Susan lets Erica out so she could speak. Susan was on every talk show telling us the soaps were not going off the air. Then all of a sudden we get the news. Why dosent she tell us how she feels about going on every talk show? Then getting slapped in the face? What the hell Susan? Why dont you REALLY tell us what you feel. Give Robin a call. Maybe she can give you some guts.

Everybody has a different way. Strasser is vocal by nature. Lucci has friends literally everywhere & a retail empire with pilates, home shopping, etc. I'm sure her reps, peeps & merchandisers are putting the heat where it needs to be. A part of me thinks Frons and Sweeney really disliked tge press Lucci was getting & pulled the plug vindictively. I'm not ruling LaKane out yet, but I do praise Strasser & Hickland for speaking out.
