PUTTIN’ ON THE RITZ

ABC Soaps In Depth - - We Speak Out! -

There are a lot of rea­sons to love the Nurses Ball, not the least of which is see­ing some of the show’s big­gest stars do­ing a dif­fer­ent type of per­form­ing. And cer­tainly, this year’s event had a lot of tal­ent on dis­play even as one of the big­gest sto­ries on the can­vas — the um-

For oth­ers, it’s the feel­ing that new­bie Peter has taken over the can­vas at the ex­pense of other char­ac­ters and their sto­ry­lines. Cer­tainly, the show’s re­cent rat­ings slip has re­flected that

dis­sat­is­fac­tion. We’re hop­ing that with Peter’s se­cret hav­ing been ex­posed, view­ers will be caught up in the mas­sive fall­out and the big sto­ries com­ing up.

Peter couldn’t help

feel­ing they were talk­ing about him…
