  • Wes

    Those pictures look terrible. FV should be ashamed.

    • Barney

      Why do they put Genie Frances in such atrocious. matronly dresses? She is too pretty to look so drab. And what is up with Nancy Lee (Alexis) in that ugly dress which bares her bosom? I swear it looks like someone went out of their way to make the post fifty year olds look horrid.

  • Marie

    umm The 50TH Cast Photo Should Have Looked Like This…Cause That Was A Bleeping Mess Compared To This…This Photo Should Have Been Used The 50Th Photo!

  • Nancy

    At least Tyler is awake!

  • graymond

    Apparently Jack Wagner missed this shoot.

  • Vivian Cordano Micucci

    Where is Kim its like a slap in the face that she is not included they should be ashamed of themselves whoeber put this together

    • Barney

      who is Kim?

  • David G

    Where is Denise Alexander? She is a corner stone of that show’s cast SMH.

    • Krys Cee

      she hasn’t been on this show in almost a decade, why would she be included, she wasn’t an original cast member. If u wanna strole down memory lane, u could ask the same question about Lee and Gail Baldwin

      • Barney

        It has been reported that Leslie will be making an appearance.

  • David G

    Im sorry but Derek and Drew Cheetwood are extras not cast members.

    • Barney

      and they’re BORING!
