The 2014 Winter Olympics are now underway, so it’s time for an Olympics edition of Tweet This, Tweet That! Each week we compile some of the most hilarious, thought-provoking, controversial, or interesting tweets from some of daytime’s most popular stars.
This week some of the world’s best athletes have traveled to Sochi, Krasnodar Krai, Russia to compete in the Winter Olympics. However, due to Russia’s questionable ethics on homosexuality and Sochi‘s less-than-stellar accomodations, this year’s Winter Olympics has become one of the most controversial in recent years. Which of your favorite soap actors are being Olympics fans? And which have flat out refused to watch the Olympics due to these controversies? Check it out in this week’s Tweet This, Tweet That!
The 2014 Winter Olympics opening ceremony was held on Friday, February 7 and former “All My Children” actor-turned-movie star Josh Duhamel (ex-Leo du Pres) seemed excited about the festivities.
“General Hospital” baddies Jerry Jacks and Julian Jerome may have evil intentions on the show, but their portrayers seem very concerned with Russia’s ethics. Both Sebastian Roché and William deVry agree that Sochi was a poor choice to host the Winter Olympics.
However, as the Winter Olympics got underway, your favorite daytime stars began rallying behind the USA athletes. On Saturday, February 8, snowboarder Sage Kotsenburg became the first athlete to bring gold home to the USA this year. And Hunter Tylo (Taylor Hayes, “The Bold and the Beautiful“) was impressed.
The real winners this week will be the impressive athletes that take medals back to their home countries, but we have a winner here at Soap Opera Network too! The winner of this week’s Soap Opera Network Tweet of the Week, or #SONTOTW, is Eric Roberts (ex-Vance Abrams, “Y&R”)! He tweeted a very good question! Please let us know if that works, Eric!
If I eat the greatest pie ever from @PiBakeshop & watch THE OLYMPICS, can the athletes burn it off for me?
