    Dinah's Carnival Life

    Thursday, November 09 2006


    Gina Tognoni (CBS)
    Next Wednesday, GL viewers will be getting a treat when the In the Light episode will showcase the wonderful Gina Tognoni (Dinah Marler). She joined the cast as the troubled and unpredictable Dinah in 2004, winning an Emmy in 2006 for Best Supporting Actress. With her love life in chaos and a possible murder charge hanging over head, Dinah may be reaching the end of her tether. If this wasn't enough, the show will also feature the return appearance of her sister Clarissa. Arielle Fleisher will return in the role of Dinah's little seen half-sister. Clarissa was conceived back in 1999 by the late Ross Marler and the currently bed ridden Blake. At that time, Blake and Ross were in the midst of a divorce, but still managed to spend a day locked in the bathroom together. Blake didn't inform Ross of the pregnancy at the time, since she believed that he was having an affair with her mother Holly. Rather than face this, she hid out at the Bauer cabin and wrote a romance novel. Ross circuitously discovered her pregnancy and managed to track her down just as she was going into labor. Clarissa's birth is what brought Blake and Ross back together again, rather to Dinah's chagrin. Could this point to a softening of hostilities between Dinah and Blake? On Wednesday, Clarissa will bring Dinah to the carnival and try to help her confront her demons (remember Dinah's troubled upbringing with a carnie family?) and admit to herself what she really wants.

    This is part of a trend that will be moving through the show in the coming months. Just recently, Bonnie Dennison has been cast as Susan Lemay, the daughter who Harley had given up for adoption. She will be replacing Brittany Snow, who left in the role in 2001 before moving on to the bog screen. Dennison has already had experience, appearing on Third Watch and Law & Order: SVU. Her first air date is scheduled for January 10th, 2007. Even before that, fans can look forward to the return of Kimberly J. Brown, the original Marah Lewis on November 17th. Since leaving the show in 1998, she has appeared in Tumbleweeds, A Bug''s Life and Bringing Down the House. Her return has been anticipated as an opportunity to accelerate the reconciliation of Reva and Josh. Tune in to find out.

    Gina Tognoni's In the Light episode airs on November 15th.

    This is great just what the show needs. Bringing back family members that we were involved together is great,because we already know them even if there playing by different actors. Now if we can only keep people from writing such negativity about the number one show in my mind.I have been watching gl for about 30 years, and yes there was alot of changings but you just go with it and enjoy it before everybody gets it canceled..

    I agree with the majority...Reva is Back and she belongs with Josh. The only reason Josh ever went w Cassie was because he believed Reva was with Billy. Cassie and Josh have absolutely no chemestry whatsoever. This new Cassie is nothing like the previous Cassie, who would never have gone after her sisters husband. Do you see a pattern here Cassie keeps going after men who were totally devoted to Reva. also as fast as Cassie falls in and out of love makes you wonder if she has any staying power. With both Cassie and Josh always being so perfect viewers will be snoozing in no time. Writers need to give Cassie back her zest for life and get rid of the milk toast that has taken her place.

    When are they going to get rid of Cassie?? This new one is so dull that I find myself changing the channel when she is on and looking for the real Cassie on the other channel and wishing for her return to GL.

    I believe that Reva's Mama come to her when she flatlined and told her that HB is Cassie's Daddy, how long will it talk Reva to tell this secret, looks like Cassie is worse than Tammie, at least Jonathan is just a cousin, Josh is Cassies brother!!!!!!!!Gross

    I guess I'm the only one who wanted Reva to die. I'm so sick of her trying to act as if she's a teenager and thre world revolves around her. How unfair to viewers to have her appear to die and then find out she miraculously came back to life. Soaps ask you to believe lots of things, but this was just too much.

    what are Blake and Ross twin son's?

    I'm glad Reva is back. Even it she and Josh don't get back together I hope that he is miserable and thinks about her constantly, especially when he is around or with Cassie. Cassie makes me sick. She must be a sorry low down person to want to stay with Josh now that Reva is better, knowing that Reva gave him up to her so that he would be happy. Reva is the selfless one, Cassie is SELFISH
