JFP on Delia Abbott's DEATH...

Postby Arckangel » Fri Oct 25, 2013 3:29 pm

According to JFP, Delia was killed in order to give the actors meaty material... This is what JFP told actress Elizabeth Hendrickson:

“I know it’s not easy killing a kid. I know that I am going to get hell for this. But this is for you guys.” - Jill Farren Phelps on Delia Abbott's death

“I know it’s not easy killing a kid. I know that I am going to get hell for this. But this is for you guys.”


EMMY BAIT!

That's why the actors love JFP. :D

She wins them the most AWARDS.

I think if this is the only way these writers know how to give Adam, Billy, Chloe and Victoria meaty story lines its a damn shame. They are way better than this. Besides I though JFP said she didnt write this JG did. I think we all know the truth though.

To put it another way, the audience does not vote for the Emmy's only the acting union members. So therefore, I do not give too hoots if the fans are happy or not. They do not vote. Nice attitude Miss Phelps.

Phelps said "This is for you guys!" That's the most ludicrous thing I've heard yet. And with all the spin on this story line, that's saying a lot!

Since when did Phelps care about anything but furthering her own agenda. Never, that's when!

If she wanted to come up with a meaty storyline, there are lots of ways she could have done that without killing off a child.

The actors want high drama so they can show their chops and of course the more emmys for the show the better. So killing off main characters is a way to get high drama OK but JFP could have chosen better and avoided using a child. Maybe it was the fast track to sweeps but we have enough child death in real life we don't need or want it in our fantasy vicarious thrills life. I want to see romance, rich and famous getaways, women in posh outfits with cool jobs, and men with some brains not just muscles. Cute kids with fun grandpas and ponies. I can watch the trash and the crazies out my windows or on primetime or the news, give us some mystery, house beautiful, travel&leisure, forbes and maybe a little politics/sports with humor, a town council election or football coach / cop with a midwest humor or local westwing meets evening shade. Any or all of the above just no more dead kids out, gee, add a few more in! Crime, death and sadness is inevitable and all around us so why do we need JFP to keep bringing us more and more, episode upon episode?

I think this is going to back fire on Phelps. This was not emmy winning material. I don't see any of them taking home that statue for this story. It was so poorly written.

The daytime Emmys are a joke since there. Are only 4 shows now?
A daytime Emmy is useless in this industry! Nobody really cares who wins!

As far as I understand it, it is the only way JFP knows how to write "meaty s/l's" period. She murdered a large portion of GH's cast.
