Wow, congrats Jessica Collins on your new marriage and cute baby. I am so happy, Jessica won the Daytime Emmy. She is a wonderful actress,vand classy lady. I hope another soap, hires this wonderful talented actress.

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. I cannot say that about many on Y&R now.

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.
