It's only a goodbye... Santa Barbara online

Small omission last month : I had forgotten to announce to you on this page the birth on last 19 November of the first Italian website devoted to Santa Barbara ! In addition to some pages in Italian about the show, SBitalia : Il primo sito in italiano di Santa Barbara proposes a gallery of photos which delight all the non-italian-speakers of the show. A site to be discovered !

The re-entry of October had well begun for Jack Wagner (Warren Lockridge between 1991 and 1993) and Bridgette Wilson (Lisa Fenimore between 1992 and 1993)... But the end of the year will have been harder : the new shows that the two actors had respectively joined this season have been cancelled in December because of low ratings. Good-bye thus to Titans and The $treet (see the News of September and November), two of the many first victims of the year in the world of the American TV shows...
In French theatres...
Robin Wright will not break...

A little more than one month after the United States, it is the turn of France to welcome on its screens on last 27 December the new movie of Robin Wright Penn, Unbreakable, starring Bruce Willis (on the photo) and Samuel L. Jackson. The writer and director of the film, M. Night Shyamalan, is not at his beginnings since he is also the author of the last year success, The Sixth Sense. If you have seen and appreciated (or not!) Unbreakable, give us your opinion, as for the film itself as for the role reserved to the beautiful ex-Kelly Capwell of Santa Barbara...

Also on screens...

Note also the output on last 20 December in France of Family Man, directed by Brett Ratner, starring Nicolas Cage and, in what interests us, Téa Leoni Duchovny (Lisa DiNapoli in 1989). It is about a romantic comedy on the topic of the second chance...
Private Life On stage...
A soap divorce

They have been two heroes of Santa Barbara at different seasons, married in real life, before leaving each other today... Eileen Davidson (Kelly Capwell between 1991 and 1993) and Jon Lindstrom (Dr. Mark McCormick between 1985 and 1986) indeed decided to divorce after three-and-a-half years of marriage. " This is an amicable situation. We remain the best of friends", had wanted to specify Jon Lindstrom. While Jon plays Dr. Kevin Collins in the soap Port Charles since 1996, (character for whom he had received the Soap Opera Digest Award of the best outstanding supporting actor in 2000; see the News of April), Eileen had retaken the role of Ashley Abbott Newman Lassiter Bladeson Howard (!) in The Young and the Restless in 1999.

Stoney Jackson in the stars

The one who was Paul Whitney, the police officer friend of Cruz and boyfriend of Alice Jackson between 1986 and 1987, does his come-back on television this month in the new show of Sci-Fi channel, Black Scorpion. In this violent and sexy science fiction show, Stoney plays Prankster, a space gangster. What a program !
