    PEREZ HILTION, COME TO THE RESCUE!!!

    Hi, my name is Kunoor Ojha, and I want you to come to the rescue.

    Help Invisible Children, an organization committed to peace in Uganda, to stop the violence by putting your fame and influence to good use. Attend a rescue event at a city near you!

    On April 25th, in thousands of cities, thousands of people will be abducting themselves to mimic the thousands of children abducted and forced to become child soldiers in Uganda.

    I know that you are a person committed to doing good, as you often post worthwhile causes amid your celebrity gossip. As an avid perez reader, I know how many people you reach and that your influence is immense. I would be nothing short of thrilled if you would take time out of one day to attend a rescue event, and if you would promote Invisible Children's cause. You can find the organization's documentaries online on their website. Email back for more information.

    Please attend a rescue event!

    let us know

    Thank you so much!!!

    Wow, my mom started LISTENING to Guiding Light on the radio back in the 50s. Then watch when it was on TV.

    I watched in the 70s and early 80s because my mom watched. The show was good at one time, but really went downhill in the mid-90s (Kim Zimmer- Reva stayed too long). When they did the Reva-as-a-clone storyline, it was over. The show had jumped the shark.

    Anyway, that's another soap down the drain. The era of the Soap Opera (or "stories" as my mom calls them) is over. I think ATWT is next and there will be no daytime soaps on network TV in the next 10 years.

    sucks

    Good! That show was getting pathetic with their low budget sets, to make it seem more "real" lol when really it was just a way to save money.

    This is the first of many soaps that will get cancelled soon. Days of Our Lives is in trouble too (hence why they fired a bunch of their cast just to stay afloat)



  18. 18

    hmmm soap opera's are a waste of time… Glad I stopped watching them…



  19. 19

    :( My grandma is gonna be so sad when she finds out.

    This better be an april fools day joke.

    Longest running soap opera on television? No, maybe on American Television, not television in general. Although I hate to call it a soap opera, Coronation Street has been running since about 1872. The Street is the oldest running "soap opera" on television.

    Too bad it's too late to save all the brain cells that have died through the years from watching that garbage.



  26. 26

    On April 1, 2009, CBS released a statement announcing that Guiding Light was not cancelled and will be on the air for at least another five years.

    I WILL BE HORRIFIED IF THIS IS TRUE!!!
    .
    MY GRANDMOTHER WATCHED THIS SHOW, MY MOM AND MY AUNT WATCH THIS SHOW, AND I'VE BEEN WATCHING IT MY ENTIRE LIFE (SERIOUSLY ON THE ENTIRE LIFE PART AS MY MOM ALWAYS HAD IT ON AND IT COMES ON AT 3PM SO I WOULD SEE IT AFTER SCHOOL)!!
    .
    THE WRITING HAS STARTED TO SUCK SUCK SUCK LATELY, BUT I CAN'T EVEN BRING MYSELF TO WATCH ANOTHER SHOW.
    .
    ACTUALLY, I WOULD NOT SWITCH TO ANOTHER SHOW, I ONLY WATCH BECAUSE I HAVE KNOW THESE CHARACTERS FOR DECADES.

    After 72 years, the Guiding Light is about to shine for the last time. In an oddly timed announcement, CBS chose a day usually reserved for practical jokes to announce that it was pulling the plug on television's longest-running scripted series. While efforts are being made to find another home for Guiding Light, for now the show is scheduled to go dark in September.

    The final episode of Guiding Light will air on CBS on September 18.

    Guiding Light was such a wonderful soap to watch back during its heyday! It hasn't been worth watching much in recent years but boy did it provide loads of entertainment back during its glory years! How sad to see daytime slowly die off like this. GL never got the mainstream press it deserved, because it truly boasted one of the most talented casts in daytime during its best years. RIP GUIDING LIGHT :( :( :(
