A little levity is always welcome on daytime drama but let’s not get too crazy with stunt casting or silliness. This is not B&B!

RIGHT ON, Iakovos!!!!! It’s bad enough that B&B GOES OVERBOARD with the stunt casting. The last thing that I wanna watch is more of the same on Y&R. NO, NO AND MORE NO!!!!!

Later.

I don’t like all of this guest appearances by these actors who have no connection to Y&R. It pulls the focus away from the show itself. The point of this stuff is to get headlines like this (or, in the case of Julie Chen, a blatant attempt to market another CBS show on Y&R).

IMO, this type of stuff is NOT helpful to Y&R. I have a high opinion of Sally Sussman and think she has the training and the ability to properly write for Y&R. I am very surprised that this type of stuff is occurring why she is the head writer. (I’m wondering if this type of thing is being dictated from the corporate level and Sussman has no option but to “hold her nose” as she writes a scene for these alleged “stars.”).

Don’t judge before the story itself has actually played out. Can’t main characters interact with other people except themselves?

As if Los Angeles is only populated with Logans and Forresters.

Y&R’s Eric Braeden Lip-Syncs For A Good Cause

Now here’s something you might not expect from Eric Braeden, The Young and the Restless‘ iconic Victor Newman!  Braeden lends his name and some pretty good lip-syncing to the tune “U.n.I (You &!)” as he participated in a fundraising campaign that benefits UNICEF.

“U.n.I (You & I)” is a song and video from the son and granddaughter of Sir Roger Moore, an organization the Bond star was passionately involved with for many years. The video features more than 50 celebrities lip-syncing the song’s lyrics, in honor of their friend Roger and to support a great cause close to the actor’s heart.  You can check out the wall of celebrities who have posted viral videos in support of UNICEF lip-syncing to the song here.

Braeden posted his video to social media sharing: “The only way we can make a difference is by coming together. What a pleasure to be a part of @theunisong project to raise money & awareness for @UNICEF  “

See the video below.

So, will you check out and download “U.n.I (You &!)” and help Eric and other celebrities make a difference? Comment below.

Felicity Huffman Reports To Prison To Serve Sentence For College Admissions Scandal

Former Desperate Housewives star, Felicity Huffman, reported to a federal prison to start to serve her 14-day sentence for her participation in the college admissions scandal that saw affluent parents use illegal means including bribery to get their children into elite educational institutions.

On Tuesday, Huffman surrendered herself to authorities at the low-security Federal Correctional Institution in Dublin, California which is said to be 35 miles east of San Francisco.  Felicity actually entered the prison facility earlier than her court-ordered date of October 25th.

Coincidentally, the prison that Huffman is serving her sentence also housed very well-known inmates including: Patty Hearst, Heidi Fleiss, and Sara Jane Moore, who attempted to assassinate President Gerald Ford in 1975.  Forbes Magazine named the facility one of America’s top 10 “cushiest” prisons back in 2009.

Unlike former Edge of Night actress, Lori Loughlin, who was also caught up in the scandal and has plead not-guilty to charges levied against her and her husband, Huffman did pleaded guilty to paying $15,000 to arrange for her daughter’s SAT score to be falsified.  In addition, Huffman was fined $30,000, and must perform 250 hours of community service and spend a year on probation.

U.S. Attorney Andrew Lelling of the District of Massachusetts, who is the the supervising prosecutor, said Loughlin should expect a tougher sentence than Huffman if she is convicted during an interview on a Boston TV station expressing: “I don’t think I’d be giving away any state secrets by saying we would probably ask for a higher sentence for her than we did for Felicity Huffman.”

Huffman told the judge during her sentencing, “I was frightened. I was stupid, and I was so wrong.”

So, what do you think of the 14-day sentence and that Felicity is already beginning her jail time? Comment below.
