To Chew or Not To Chew?



Twitter feud of the week: Did you see that Robin Strasser (Dorian,  OLTL) blasted Laura Wright for appearing on The Chew? She sure did. BIG TIME:

  is WRONG praising the Chew, confusing protecting her own job with love/fun/or that bad food. 800 jobs lost when OLTL cancelled.
 RESPECT for the DAYTIME AUDIENCES and their enthusiastic loyal support of SOAPS should be part of JOB DESCRIPTION for working at any network (@RobinStrasser)

Now, Laura was on doing a little selling of her wine--Standing Sun. She's heavily into the wine selling venture and probably saw this as a great opportunity to cross-promote.  
My note?
Her PR person or booking agent or WHOMEVER needs to be replaced. Have her go on GMA or Rachel Ray-- or any of the foodie network stuff. But The Spew? Knowing the soap fan hate for it? Um....not a wise choice.
I do say however, it was her choice to make. I won't fault her for it. I just don't think it showed much forethought.

Ron carlivati defended her on twitter saying right on because she said on twitter that it was a way of promoting GH and she stayed loyal to ABC. I was turned off and, of course, didn't watch as I don't watch the show. She does have a link to her vineyard on twitter when you go to her twitter page. It describes her family and how she got into wine production and you can purchase her wine.
I think she is promoting herself and staying loyal to ABC especially because GH may be done soon. She's thinking about her next job/ current job as well as stroking TPTB at GH/ABC.
It's clear it worked for her as she has a lot of airtime on GH.

Like blasting her will bring back Strasser's job at OLTL? Silly.

I don't see a problem how can you be mad at her for going on the Chew especially when she still works for ABC? The Chew didn't cancel soaps ABC did! LW has a life outside of soaps and she's promoting it which is a smart move because we all know soaps are on life support especially the last one that's on ABC!

Girl LW do what they have to do because all those people criticizing isn't going to feed your family or pay your bills when the GH checks stop coming in!

I can't believe it...I completely agree with LaTanya.

They are all OWNED by abc.
Except maybe Strasser??

I would think that if she were under contract with ABC she pretty much has to go where they tell her. But, truly....I don't know. I just assume maybe with a contract you can't bite the hand that feeds.

LaTanya said...

Ha @ My2Cents2 did you pass out or get light headed? Don't worry just breathe into a paperbag you'll be fine! lol

I still think her booking agent had a hand in it. Anyway, like I said, her choice to make. Yes, I've seen her wine stuff all over twitter, just like Burton's constant marketing stuff. I don't blame them a bit for doing it...that's marketing 101!

Just another ABC hypocrite is what LW is. Many other shows to go on to pimp her wine. The fact that she chose to do The Chew...c'mon. There was no pushing GH like she tweeted. It's all about her wine business and screw soaps. She's contacted Kelly from Live with Kelly (formally Live with Regis and Kelly)...she sent her a private message on Twitter. Guess we'll see her poppin' up on that show too! This from the actress who previously denied any ABC soaps were ending. Hmmm...what do we think she knows now....maybe she's wised up??

I think it is STUPID that people blame The Chew for AMC & OLTL getting canceled.It was not their fault.Those soaps got canceled because they were AWEFUL and that is it.I watch The Chew sometimes and it is not that bad.I did see LW on there and it was a good little segment.Plus i think other GH cast members would do the exact same thing.

Tammy Wynette said...

Laura Wright was definitely in the WRONG.

She'll be stomping grapes full-time by next Summer (if not sooner).

Snez Babic said...

Totally agree with you rebeccakeen. You can blame ABC and the writing staff for the shows getting cancelled not the people at the Chew. If the Chew didn't take over the spot, there would be something else. I don't watch the Chew - don't care for it. But it's not my job to tell America what to watch.

This kind of thing makes me very happy I don't have a Twitter account. I say all non celebs delete their accounts and let the celebs duke it out amongst themselves.
