However, he did share on his IG that he would set up a meet and greet at his little bro’s restaurant where he sometimes works at.

Later, he wrote another story, “Also, anybody wanna jump on a live today around 3PM PST today? I have some ideas about hanging out later this year….my own little meet and greet, haha. No ticket price, and me and little bro will make sure you get fed. Let’s spend a day together eh?”

Later, Ryan clarified some of those details on Twitter. He is limiting this event to 40. It appears that it has to do with the size of the restaurant. He also stated that he had a backup plan by using a local park. Most of all, it would be like one of the events.

Oh yeah I’ll do all the stuff they do at other events, just in a smaller, less formal setting. Same in the park for those that can’t fit in restaurant haha.

Therefore, fans who want to meet Ryan should follow him on his social media to get the latest details on this meet and greet.

Didn’t Want To Work With ‘Crazy Guys’

This is not the first time that Ryan Paevey has talked about not attending the Christmas and other cons where fans meet and greet their favorite actors.

Back in 2022, he shared that he would not not work with “crazy guys” again. Therefore, he would not be working with That’s 4 Entertainment again. However, in that same set of video stories, he did share that he would work with RomaDrama again. He even said, “I love them to death.” Therefore, in the past two years, that relationship soured.

Ryan has recently shared that he has suffered a lot of financial loss and dishonest people in the business. This has to be very difficult for anyone who is trying to make it in Hollywood.

Unfortunately, it seems that Ryan has had a lot of bad luck. It is unfortunate that no one took him under their wing to help him navigate the rough waters of this business.

Ryan Paevey Tells Fans He Is Not Returning To Hallmark

After months of speculation, Ryan Paevey shared on this IG chat that he would not be returning to Hallmark. He stated this several times. Although he did not specify anything, he accused the network of “dishonesty.” However, he would not go into #the drama.”

Hallmark has not issued any sort of statement since Ryan made entertainment headlines that he was not offered a movie and could be taking a break. But, Hallmark has recently changed something with their relationship with actors. They no longer have exclusive contracts.

It is not clear if this is the “dishonesty” that Ryan is referring to, or if there is another reason. He would have to come forward with the specified issues. It is not always clear why some actors left Hallmark to work with Great American Family, but there are certainly a lot of Hallmark actors who continue to thrive with the network. This is not public information shared with the media or fans.

  1. I obviously don’t know the contracts nor the compensation structure that may be the root cause. However, I have seen all of his HM movies and the fall off in quality of scripts and, quite candidly, the quality of the female leads recently would be enough to make me hang it up too. From the Mr. Darcy scripts and the roles opposite Taylor Cole, Erin Cahill and Italia Ricci which allowed him to show real acting chops to the really poor roles as the ex-NFL quarterback and the astronomy movie with the 16 year-old female lead, obviously Ryan was being given lesser quality roles/scripts as time progressed. Maybe he should talk to the GAF people.

    1. I would love to see Ryan again in the movies. He is so handsome and talented. I hope a new network will give him a contract. I watch Hallmark movies and there are some actors who are more mediocre with looks and talent than others, and Ryan stands out, so what is the issue I do not know. I pray for his return.

  2. Ok. Without knowing the history here we just tend to come up with reasoning at times to be a bit much. I use to watch more Hallmark but let’s face it the network has changed and the demo they are attempting to push for isn’t their actual. I do not feel with the younger set of actors and actresses at times. I prefer GAF no doubt. I appreciate what Bill did for Hallmark let’s face it they are running on things he created and made the netwok more successful except they don’t get the true recipe. GAF movies with actors and actresses I can feel life! Wholesome entertainment where the original works are made into movies and don’t update or change things just because. It’s obvious there need to be better and more fitted events. Honestly I give every movie with Ryan Paevey a chance. I love the chemistry he has had with a number of others and just think the world of him. I feel he’s more genuine and appreciate that so much. he doesn’t seem to place himself on a pedestal at all. He’s like your everyday type of guy with more! These are the types of actors I look forward to. I didn’t even know he was in a soap! I look forward to hearing and seeing what he has in store. If this is all Midwest or West coast based unlikely I could attend. Almost like he needs a few scheduled surprise pop ups! If he knows no more Hallmark and he gave it his best he needs to entertain a conversation with Bill Abbot at GAF for sure. the difference in TV where actors and actresses are more than just puppets but actually get involved. More than filming movies! Making something special! One more thing what is the name of the popular restaurant and location? First ive heard of the little brother. Again im not following every step Ryan takes!
