    Surprised no one on here even brought this up. I just learned about it yesterday.

    Then again, the soap industry for the most part is not saying anything outside of one site. I just learned about this yesterday through a google search.

    As you know, I have always been a SJB fan. She was the reason for me watching daytime, and when I saw how she was treated on daytime, I found it easier to leave the medium behind and move on with my life.

    Well, SJB has not exactly “vanished” from the industry. She’s been active on social media. But she has not been able to get an acting job since DOOL and recently retired from acting. She also left LA.

    In case anyone was wondering why her soap roles were botched, well, one could say crappy writing, but crappy writing on otherwise a good written soap like B&B and DOOL at the times? SJB called out Moonves for her problems finding work. She was making it seem like she got fired on ATWT and didn’t decide to leave. Les, her character’s abusive ex, was named after Les Moonves. Her character ended up getting murdered by him. Her characters were murdered on three soaps, all in heinous fashion. She was fired abruptly from Cold Case. She was actually supposed to be offered a starring role on the original NCIS, but Moonves intervened and the producers fought for her, but lost.

    I had to think something was up. She hasn’t been asked to do anything in a while. And she basically spoke up about what was going on.

    Now it is somewhat perplexing that on DOOL she was let go with other veteran actors because of a writing change. On B&B, she was one of many talents wasted by a tease writer like Brad Bell who always makes it known who his most important characters are. Remember Lesli Kay, another incredible actress? She never got a fair shake.

    I don’t know if I can blame them completely or not, but the fact she hasn’t found work since, and especially any guest starring primetime roles outside of one CSI guest stint, is alarming.

    It’s on social media and on soaphub, but I was surprised no one talked about this.

    Well since we are putting the ex Carly’s as doctors where we need them, she’s welcome back to GH as a badass surgeon if you ask me!

    That’s a shame that Moonves torpedoed her career, in addition to all the other things he did. At DAYS unfortunately she was just caught in the revolving door of regimes. I don’t think Madison was the most popular character, especially not after they brought in Ian Buchanan as her estranged husband, which was a fairly awful story all around. I guess the incoming writers wanted to clear the decks for Brady to get involved with Kristen, and outside of her relationship with Brady, Madison wasn’t doing enough to be worth keeping around.

    She’s very overrated in my opinion, I don’t think she deserved ALL of the emmy’s she has on her wall, maybe the first one, but not the multiples.

    Overrated or not, her career was ruined. Nobody deserves that.
