Blind Item: Which Primetime Soap Sweethearts Are Planning a Fall Wedding?

Get More: Blind Item, Scoop

Since I’m currently on assignment in the Pacific Northwest — between us, I’m hunting down a slice of cherry pie and a damn fine cup of coffee — AA will be MIA this week.

But, to tide you over until next time, I’m dishing out a blind item that I suspect many of you will find just as satisfying.

RELATED | 2012 Renewal Scorecard: What’s Coming Back? What Got Axed?

It concerns a primetime soap that, although popular, came thisclose to getting the axe at season’s end — and just when a pair of its well-liked lovebirds were heading for a reunion, too. Now I hear that, when the show returns this fall, it’ll pick up right where it left off and pleasantly surprise fans by immediately marrying off the star-crossed couple in question.

RELATED | Fall TV Grid — What’s On When? And Versus What?

All of which brings us to my questions for you: What’s the show? And who’s the duo? Share your guesses below, and, as always, keep an eye on my Twitter feed for clues. If I do manage to score that damn fine cup of coffee, the jolt of caffeine might inspire me to reveal more than I should!

    Comment by Jake – June 26, 2012 07:22 AM PDT  Reply To This Post
    • Grimm was not going to be cancelled so it does not refer to that show.

    • How is Gossip Girl not a soap?

      Comment by Guest – June 26, 2012 07:27 AM PDT  Reply To This Post
    • The real question is “Is Gossip Girl considered popular?” Ratings say no. That being said, TVline loves Gossip Girl so I take it they do consider GG popular. SO I’m assuming it is Chuck and Blair. All will be forgiven if GG marries those crazy kids right out of the gate next season.

      Comment by Ava – June 26, 2012 07:36 AM PDT  Reply To This Post
      • Gossip Girl has terrible ratings, but is actually popular over-all. And TVLine loves them some Gossip Girl, and a large portion of their feedback comes from GG viewers.

        Comment by Nicole – June 26, 2012 07:52 AM PDT  Reply To This Post
      • i love GG but i just don’t think the blind item is referring to them.

      • It is a pretty popular show online though.

        Comment by bookluva4eva – June 26, 2012 08:08 AM PDT  Reply To This Post
        • Yeah it’s pretty popular online, iTunes, and internationally speaking. Obviously, whatever show it’s referring to isn’t THAT popular if it was nearly cancelled, though. So yeah, GG fits as good as anything else. Better, IMO.

    • I don’t think it was ever endanger if getting canceled. TV Line had it labeled as a “sure thing.”

      Comment by Rolfe – June 26, 2012 09:15 AM PDT  Reply To This Post
      • Actually, there was a question about GG’s return…. It’s back for an abbreviated season. So, GG is pretty decent guess. The show really should’ve ended after graduation from high school.

  • This can’t be Addisam, can it? It seems too obvious to be them. It doesn’t make sense to pick up where they left off because of Tim Daly’s departure. They would have to do a time jump to explain his exit. Plus, with Kate Walsh leaving, I think they would keep her single.

    Comment by fabinpink – June 26, 2012 07:23 AM PDT  Reply To This Post
    • That would have been my guess.

      Comment by carol – June 26, 2012 07:41 AM PDT  Reply To This Post
    • If this was the case, Shonda is indeed intending to drive the show into the ground before finally getting it cancelled, isn’t she? The woman keeps surprising me how low she can get.

          Comment by Rolfe – June 26, 2012 09:16 AM PDT  Reply To This Post
    • God, I hope it’s not PP. I hope Kate Walsh had a talk with Shonda Rhimes when she decided that she’d leave about where they would go with Addison in her final season. I can see her wanting Addison to focus on her son and move on from Sam and love triangles and all that crap.

      Comment by Heather Followell Jaramillo – June 26, 2012 12:12 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
  • I think Chuck and Blair makes sense. Everyone was waiting on that reunion and the shows ratings were the worst on TV so it had to be close to being cancelled. I think it would be a great way to reward the fans who stuck by the show through last years disasters.

    Comment by Melly – June 26, 2012 07:23 AM PDT  Reply To This Post
    • Um false. Not everyone was waiting for their reunion. Some people like Dair and think Chair is a terrible relationship. And if GG writers’ think that marrying them fixes everything then they are dead wrong. And before you jump all over me, yes I am bitter and I have every right to be. Dair got screwed over big time. And again Chair is awful and not what “everyone” wanted.

      Comment by me – July 5, 2012 01:33 AM PDT  Reply To This Post
      • You’re a minority. A lot of Dair fans turned Chair again after three episodes of Dair. I think you’re disillusional now, of course NOT everyone, but a 95% of the viewers are now rooting for a Chair wedding. Get over it and forget Dair nonsense crap, it’s been Chair for 6 seasons

  • Private Practice – Sam & Addison. I don’t know that I’d call them a “well-liked” couple in my book, but I do know that other people seem to want them together. Plus, that show was VERY close to getting the axe.

  • I don’t think it’s GG since they didn’t ALMOST get the axe, the got the axe (shortened season, last one). I actually don’t know which of the shows could be (primetime, soap, almost cancelled).

    Comment by Masa – June 26, 2012 07:27 AM PDT  Reply To This Post
    • Getting the axe would have been cancelled entirely, and from what I hear, GG was pretty close to that.

      Comment by Carly – June 26, 2012 07:28 AM PDT  Reply To This Post
    • Well, we don’t REALLY know the behind the scenes deal with Gossip Girl. They could’ve very well been close to not getting a 6th shortened season. Who knows.

      Comment by Jackie – June 26, 2012 07:29 AM PDT  Reply To This Post
    • It can’t be because GG it was never a bubble show. It was almost certain going to come back it just needed to be figured out for how long

      Comment by Emily – June 26, 2012 08:18 AM PDT  Reply To This Post
      • i actually think it could be them since joshua safran gtfo and josh schwartz aka chuck and blair lover wrote the first episode of this new season………. so, it can totally be them. plus ausiello said: “immediately marrying off” which means before the summer. blair and chuck were in monaco, that could be a tip, couldn’t it?

        Comment by MuzzikLvr – June 26, 2012 08:23 AM PDT  Reply To This Post
        • How can it be Sarah and Mark if they just cast Ray Romano as a romantic interest for Sarah??

          Comment by GGCB – June 26, 2012 09:16 AM PDT  Reply To This Post
          • “As TVLine previously reported, Jason Ritter is set to return to the NBC drama as Sarah’s maybe-fiancé, so expect the latter’s friendship with Romano’s photog to complicate things.” Still could be them.

            Comment by acriley12 – June 26, 2012 10:36 AM PDT  
          • I still don’t think it’s Sarah and Mark. It says ‘popular’ and while I do enjoy and like Parenthood, I wouldn’t classify it as popular, at least not in regards to a lot of buzz and such.

            Comment by GGCB – June 26, 2012 12:22 PM PDT

      Comment by Cheri – June 26, 2012 12:50 PM PDT  Reply To This Post

  • i think PP, and if Kate Walsh is indeed leaving at the end of this season the show won’t continue, its already on the bubble, so losing its lead and continuing won’t happen, my guess is it will either end after 13 episodes as some think or if Kate agrees and so do the numbers then a full season and then that will be it.

      • Right. Because the media in now way influences societal culture. Teen girls have not developed eating disorders and negative self-images because of the bombardment of the media’s twisted views on beauty. And there are definitely no young women who make claims to wanting a man like Chuck Bass.

        So tell me, what is it like to be in a constant haze of ignorance?

    • Thank god the latest clues have now pretty much confirmed that this item pertains to Naomi/Max. At least now I will at least be spared from vomitting in disgust for a month or so after the premiere. And I am completely baffled as to how ANYONE could ever want to be treated the way Blair was treated by Chuck, but I have given up on arguing that point to death. I’m now just genuinely curious as to what kind of circus will unfold on GG come season 6….
