Here, here! Miss Collins (Mrs. Cooney!) was a joy in the role of Avery on Y&R. I enjoyed a character who had an aura of goodness about her, much needed counterpoint (at her introduction) to her sister Phyllis, and the other Genoa City plotters and schemers. Avery is the kind of character every daytime drama needs to keep balance in tone and story. If things were different, I would think Avery could have eventually been a strong leader on the Y&R canvas as Viki Lord became on OLTL. Miss Collins was also very relatable as a character.

Well said! I get this feeling now that Nick is available and once Dylan learns the truth about Sharon & Christian there will be an opening for Avery to return. Emmy should help!

Having never seen OLTL my comments rest with Young and the Restless. I agree with you. Avery’s departure was demeaning considering her stature which was carried throughout her role as Avery. You are correct regarding the balance issue which has been sorely missing in the past couple of years. The best to Miss Collins; wish she could return to Y & R!

Good for Jessica! She’s such a classy lady and she deserved to win after the way Y&R treated her.
Now we just need to have Kelly Sullivan win an Emmy!!

Great interview! I was so happy that Jessica Collins and True O’Brien won, not only because they truly deserved it but it’s a big F U to the ones who fired them.

It sucks that it couldn’t have been aired on TV or online.

This morning on The View, an awkward situation arose, when while on the air, co-hosts, Sunny Hostin and Ana Navarro, where asked to leave the panel desk and exit the studio.

All of this happened before a live interview was scheduled to happen with Vice President Kamala Harris.  It was revealed that Hostin and Navarro tested positive for Covid-19, and were ‘breakthrough” cases since they had been previously vaccinated.

Host, Joy Behar delivered the news to the audience at home so they knew what was going on with the bizarre moment playing out on live TV, sharing,  “Ana and Sunny, at the last minute we realized they have tested positive for COVID so they have been taken off of the show.”

Harris, who had planned to join the ladies at the table, instead was going to be interviewed remotely from a different place in the ABC TV studio in New York, while Joy Behar and Sara Haines remained on the set.

As for Kamala Harris, Behar added: “It’s very important we keep her healthy and safe. The Secret Service is doing things to make her feel safe.”

While the delay was announced, Behar and Haines took questions from the in-studio audience.

Watch Behar below explain what was going on.

Then let us know, how do you feel The View handled the situation? Comment below.

The broadcast’s executive producer, Ian Stewart, confirmed an opening number, when he previously told Deadline, the number “is going to be a lot of people participating, singing, rapping.  It’s hopefully going to be a very impactful start, a ton of fun.”

The Primetime Emmys will have nominees in attendance, with a more limited amount virtually, and those who have tickets can stay in the venue through the whole show, unlike the Grammys or Oscars were those nominated were ushered in and out.  Look for the Emmys to take place outside the theatre under a tent.
