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.

Jason Canela Reveals: “I’m Proud And Honored To Officially Be A Full-Time Member Of The Young and the Restless Family”

Former telenovela star, Jason Canela (Arturo) is staying put in Genoa City.  Canela, who is of Cuban descent, was originally brought on to The Young and the Restless as a building contractor, who winds up being the boy toy of none other than Nikki Newman (Melody Thomas Scott).

Later, his story switched and Arturo has now been romancing and paired with Nikki’s stepdaughter, Abby Newman (Melissa Ordway).

Now as Arturo becomes more entrenched in the Newman clan, Canela posted on his Instagram account that the CBS soap has signed him on as a contract player.

Jason expressed: “I’ve always believed that there are two types of artists. There are working ones and blessed ones. Thankfully I’ve had an incredible support system to always motivate me and help me push forward no matter how tough things got while I was working to become a better version of me so that one day I could be blessed. To every artist out there who feels discouraged because they have not booked that role or gotten that verse picked up in a track just remember that our line of work is not the easiest but if you truly love it then you know that if you continue to PUT IN THE WORK one day you will be blessed. Thank you to Mal Young, Sony, CBS & The Young and the Restless for believing in me and making me feel at home in Genoa city and blessing me with the opportunity to bring life to Arturo Rosales. I’m proud and honored to officially be a full time member of the The Young and the Restless family.” #Blessed #EnjoyEveryMoment

Glad to hear there is more Arturo in Genoa City and Jason is on contract at the top-rated daytime drama series? Comment below.
