Snail Mail and Email Floods

SnBers,

As of now, Vanessa’s contract status is up in the air and some media outlets, haters and baiters are talking about VMG’s impending leave.

From what I know and for what it’s worth, she is with GH until August and she is in contract negotiations right now and we should not be panicking or giving in to those hateful souls who like to see us upset. I am not panicking, I believe she be re-signing because she and Maurice seem to be getting the S/L they want. I think TPTB will come up w/ a good contract. She isn’t going to stay forever but I think we may get another year out of her. I also doubt that TPTB will want to let her go at this point because ratings have been way up. They will tank if she goes and Sonny may be put back in Carly hell whether MB likes it or not.

With that said, I do believe we should be proactive. It’s been suggested to me to FLOOD every 2 weeks. My thought is similar but I’ve been thinking about this quite a bit. We need to do more, not really a campaign, but something where the WHOLE SnB fanbase works together. When I say whole, I’m talking about not only The Sonny and Brenda Forum but all the other SnB boards, FB pages and individuals on Twitter.

I’d like everyone to:

*continue Email Blasting/Flooding each Monday

*make sure you SNAIL MAIL both VMG and MB….. I say this for a few reasons: All fan mail gets counted and there is a tally. It shows how popular the actors and characters are. It also tells the actors how appreciated they are directly by YOU.

* snail mail TPTB… Let them know how much you love VMG and how much you’d like for her to stay. Be positive, don’t be rude or nasty… Just positive and to the point. Also vary your snail mail to the GH TPTB.. They do not like organized campaigns very much. They tend to disregard them from what I understand.

* Snail Mail and Email the Soap Opera Magazines. Tell them about our floods, you can send them any “Keep Vanessa Marcil G” art you make or find. They LIKE campaigns. They also LIKE to showcase them. Perhaps we should “Campaign” to them. lol

*Call the comment lines each day SnB appear.

*Please participate on GH’s FB page. Yes, I know it is quite the vile place, but maybe one or two nights a week if we can have an organized/sometimes impromptu but organized SnB force on there we can wipe out some of the negativity together. (TPTB have interns who do read the page from what I understand)

Let’s work together and throw our support not only behind Vanessa but behind Maurice, too. He needs us just as much as she does.

Be sure to mention the ratings Sonny and Brenda’s wedding brought in. They are a power house for the ratings and brought GH to #2 unseating B&B and that they were the #1 Daytime program in women 18-49 for the first time since 2008!!!

    • I am sorely upset and disappointed over what has happened this week w/S&B’s honeymoon and airtime. As a person who only watches GH for S&B and as someone who dearly loves them, I feel sooo cheated!!!I understand that Mo had a cold and maybe they didn’t want them to kiss but given the history of S&B, that honeymoon was horrible. Van and Mo could make any scene beautiful but GH only gave them 3min and 50sec of airtime on their honeymoon. How do you go from a long awaited wedding that even some celebrities were excited about to a honeymoon full of just conversations about the Balkan and the “possible baby”. Listen I am not in any way saying that I didn’t enjoy what I saw from S&B on their honeymoon because I love them so much but Van and Mo to me are two of the hugest stars on GH who really know how to bring scenes alive. They are magic and I think they understand acting unlike many of the newbies that are on the show. I’m not trying to make them relive the 90s. I know they are older and more mature but I would love to see them being the affectionate,passionate couple that they still are. I know they can express it in a different way but GH has really messed this one up. Van and Mo have been instrumental in bringing so many viewers in including myself that they deserve more airtime. I was watching Sonny in some scenes w/other women and I was thinking to myself,”He and Brenda deserve the opportunity to show these kind of cute, intimate, loving scenes that we know they do so well.” It seems like GH is trying to block that. Van said regarding the baby storyline that Guza has four different ways the s/l could go and she’s not sure which one he will use. Moreover this will determine her length of stay!!!Why would he even consider her leaving after us S&B fans have waited sooo long for their reunion and now we want to see them happy and loving each other for some time. Van and Mo deserve that and so do the fans. Can we do anything else to make a difference? I am willing to do whatever!!!I love them and I want them both to stay and I want to see them on my screen more often!!!
