THE TV CROSSOVER OF THE WEEK
Barbara Ryan has drugged cops, hired a hitman, and even pulled off a triple-play kidnapping. She's got five ex-husbands (probably the norm in most soap operas) and more lovers than she can keep track of.
Is it any wonder then that her son was institutionalized for murder? Like mother, like son.
But at least he can be assured of getting Tyson Chicken Nuggets while in prison!
Tyson has been a time-saver for Barbara Ryan. What with surviving explosions and other soap opera dilemmas, it's a wonder Barbara has had time to eat dinner, let alone make it.
As played by Colleen Zenk Pinter, Barbara Ryan has been appearing in a series of Tyson commercials which are only seen on CBS. And back in October, the product was integrated into the storyline on 'Ast The World Turns' when Barbara's son was served Tyson's nuggets while in jail.
My thanks to TV Guide's "The Insider" for bringing this to our attention.
