Alice Hunter Done at Y&R

Photo Credit: JPI Studios

It looks like it’s a wrap, at least for now, for Alice Hunter who joined The Young and the Restless in the role of Kerry under Mal Young’s tenure with the series.

Alice took to Twitter to confirm her exit from the series after much speculation online, by stating:  “To all asking – yes, Kerry is taking an indefinite hiatus. She earns it though you’ll see soon enough. I LOVE the arc, even if I’m sad to leave. And yes, a bunch of #YR cast & crew surprised me Friday and it was something I’ll never forget,”

She also gave special mention in a subsequent tweet to some of those performers in the cast that Hunter considers her mentors: Peter Bergman (Jack) and Gina Tognoni (Phyllis) with who she shares screen-time with.   Alice expressed: “My mentors. My friends. This journey has been indescribable.”

As Y&R viewers know, Kerry was a highly regarded chemist who came on to the scene following Ashley Abbott’s (Eileen Dsvidson) departure from Paris, and became involved with Jack Abbott and worked alongside Jabot CEO, Phyllis.

No word yet as to when Hunter will make her final Y&R appearance on-screen.

So, what do you think about the exit of Alice Hunter from The Young and the Restless? Are more exits forthcoming under the new regime in Genoa City? Comment below.

Great character – I am not pleased about this character leaving

No offense to this young lady, but thank GOD! She was awkward as someone trying to dance to a drum solo.

I agree. The pairing between her and Jack felt forced and was not believable. Definitely FF on my DVR when they were on.

Why would anybody think a 29 year old would have sexual chemistry with a 65 ??? This show needs a major over haul and you might want to start cleaning house! JG fourth time up to bat PLEASE ! Where us Douglas Marlsnd when you need him I appreciate the vets who helped build the show but who really wants to watch repeats of a 77 year old EB versus 65 year old PB ! Pretty pathetic when Kyle has not had a sex scene and old people do ugh! Time marches on and please send LB out to pasture… Read more »

I’m sad to see her go. Kerry and Jack have great chemistry together.
Y&R should keep her.

He is 65 and she is 29. Any kind of chemistry with that age difference disgusts me.

Then you must be disgusted with the chemistry between quite a few daytime couples. For example,The DOOL legacy characters Doug Williams (Bill Hayes) is 93 and Julie Williams (Susan Seaforth Hayes) is 75. Or Another World’s Rachel and Mac Cory. Douglass Watson (Mac) was 24 years older than Victoria Wyndham (Rachel).

Hi, Mary,
Eighteen years is nothing compared to thirty-six. That IS disgusting. Even in real life, any young woman who is involved with someone old enough to be her father; or marries said father-figure; is after his money or something bigger than she.
This is fiction….yet, as I still maintain, fiction mimics life….Kerry has an agenda.
Furthermore, what intrigues Jack is her youth…….makes him feel young again? I don’t know much about sixty-five year old men–in the Biblical sense–but, can Jack keep up? Even with Viagra?
If he can, more power to him. But, it’s still disgusto!!

Kerry definitely has an agenda. Young and Restless is a soap opera after all. A thirty-six age difference between two people in real life involved in a romantic relationship is none of anyone’s business. And unless you are standing next to the young woman involved on a 24/7 basis you cannot know what her motives are.

Celia
Guest

LOL, GramS…..that’s exactly what I said when this mismatched, obnoxious relationship started—then, when they ended up in bed? I almost barfed!!
I aleo said this was part of Kerry’s plan. She has an agenda. Plus, she’s not the typical female to whom Jack is attracted. She’s too Amazon(ish)…. masculine-type…..and younger than, Kemo; Jack’s firstborb, whom Jack has forgotten ….along with the PTB.

I agree. At first I was bothered with their pairing due to the availability of both Nate and Devon. But, after I got over that I felt like Jack was really into her. And she is all kinds of sexy!!!

Good riddance! Kerry never caught on for me, and I didn’t buy her as a love interest for Jack. Now that Nick and Phyllis are broken up, I could see a potential reunion for her and Jack in the future. She was a newbie with no ties to the canvas, and I would much rather have Ashley back full time. Though I did have a feeling they would make Kerry and Brytni Sarpy’s new character, Elena Dawson, sisters. I guess that’s out the window now. As for the actress, maybe she’ll be hired by another soap. B&B could bring her… Read more »

Kerry was brought in for a reason, Jimmy….I may be way off base here; but this unappealing, languid character needed to sink her teeth and plant her feet firmly onto an uppercrust family. At first I suspected Phyllis and Ashley working in concert with her to oust Jack. But, now I am not so sure. Nonetheless, Kerry needed Jack to trust her, in order to facilitate what she had planned from the onset. The mystery person, with whom she keeps communicating via cell-phone, is someone we probably know. Tessa? JT? ” There is something rotten in the state of Denmark”……in… Read more »

Glad to see her go! Hopefully, the Rosales family(except for Lola) is next on a flight out of town.

I find the Rosales family a breathe of fresh air. Its not the actors fault there was nothing else going on in genoa city that they had to be on all the time and suffocate viewers. Jts death being dragged out for a whole year before picking up steam just lately doesnt count.
Mia is juicy soapy fun! ..and arturo and rey are about to get dragged in even more in her schemes! All the actors are authentic and real
I for one find it classic soap!

Momo

It’s not that nothing else is going on. It’s that the writer chose to write nothing else. We have had too much of the Rosales family. They have been on far too much. I wouldn’t mind some here and there, but every day is too much.

Celia

Just get rid of Arturo……I don’t mind Rey and Lola. But, you are right….seeing them on a daily basis is unnerving, Momo.

Her linking with Jack never made sense. There was no build up, she’s on the show a few weeks and suddenly he is head over heals for a woman he doesn’t even know. If the writer had been smart, they should not have killed Hillary off, but recast, perhaps with Alice. No doubt she is a talented actress given an unlikely storyline, especially the big mystery… she might want to have a baby someday?????>

I really liked the love story with her and Jack and was hoping to see him happy. Fans had questions about some things but We all liked her role and especially with Jack…

Violet Lemm

Posey,
This couple was never meant to be. As someone else pointed out, she is 29 and he is almost 66. Seriously, is that OK with you? Suppose it was your daughter seeing a man that age. It makes me cringe, when my imagination kicks in, yuk!!

I would have liked it if her romance with jack had been timed a little slower. That bothered me that we were supposed to root for Kerry and jack as a couple when we had only known them together for 10 minutes. That’s the way the saps are these days.

She has an interesting presence, but this just wasn’t the right role for her; almost a niche actor. Please have Jack find a bright and mature friend that evolves into something special. Don’t hurry!

I never understood her character, never was developed that well for us to really care about her….more like a character forced on us that we never really got to know. Not unhappy with the departure.

Thank goodness! Has anyone ever questioned with whom she is communicating??….mystery calls and texts. Hmmmm—- JT? I know, it’s a stretch, LOL.

Read on another blog, most people are thinking it’s Ashley in cahoots with Kerry, come back to ruin Jack, ousting out Red and taking back Jabot. Eileen leaving in the first place was most likely to get away from M.Young, while claiming she wanted more time with her family. Who knows? I for one have honestly not missed her, with everything else going on.
As far as J.T being P.C, what would his interest be in Jabot? What thinks thee?

Mary SF

I am not surprised, this happens all the time when a new writer comes in, they usually get rid of characters that were created by the previous writer especially if the character has no real ties to the history of show. I thought for sure she was going to be transgender– and the needle in her purse was hormones–but that never played out, so who knows what her secret is, but she obviously always had one. Anyway, one can only hope her exit will be more interesting than her entrance. The age difference between her and Jack didn’t really bother… Read more »

Kerry got a phone call and it said PC…. could that be “ police chief”? Is she working with Paul?

Good idea, but she always acts like she’s doing something shady and underhanded against Jabot.

Freeform’s ‘Cruel Summer’ Season Two Announced with GH Favorite Sean Blakemore as Part of the Cast

Freeform’s smash hit series Cruel Summer is set to return as an anthology with a fresh mystery and cast  when its second season bows later in 2022.

And, a very familiar face to General Hospital fans will be one of its stars, when Daytime Emmy-winner, Sean Blakemore (Ex-Shawn Butler) joins the cast in the role of Sheriff Myer, an old-fashioned law-and-order type, under pressure to solve the first major crime in Chatham.

Cruel Summer season 2 is set in an idyllic waterfront town in the Pacific Northwest, and follows the rise and fall of an intense teenage friendship. Approaching the story from three different timelines surrounding Y2K, the season twists and turns as it tracks the early friendship between Megan, Isabella and Megan’s best friend Luke, the love triangle that blossomed, and the mystery that would impact all of their lives going forward.

Joining Blakemore in the cast are Sadie Stanley, Eloise Payet, Griffin Gluck and KaDee Strickland, Lisa Yamada, while Paul Adelstein recurs.

The series is executive produced bv Jessica Biel and Michelle Purple through Iron Ocean Productions and studio eOne.

So now, we may have some answers as to why Blakemore’s GH story wrapped sooner-than-later.

Excited to see Sean in his new project on Freeform? Comment below.

Erika Slezak Shares Holiday Letter & Fan Club Milestone Expressing: “I Thank All Of You For Sticking With Me All These Years”

Every year, Six-time Daytime Emmy winner and iconic soap star, Erika Slezak, shares a holiday letter on her website to her enduring fan club over the holidays and this year was no different.

But what made this year’s communication so special, is it marked the 50th anniversary of the Erika Slezak Fan Club and her decades long partnership with its president, Walter Miller.  Together, they have delighted daytime viewers who watched Erika as the one and only Victoria Lord on One Life to Live, to keep abreast on her life, and her career.

As Christmas approaches and we ring a new year, Erika took a moment to write her thoughts looking back at a year which saw her: appear in Hallmark’s holiday movie, Next Stop, Christmas, dealing as we all have with life in a pandemic, and her husband Brian’s recent emergency surgery.

Here is what Erika shared:  “Dear Friends: This has been a year for the books, my friends, and I most sincerely hope that all of you are well and healthy, and have survived this monstrous year. I thank God that my family and I are completely vaccinated and boostered and healthy. Unfortunately though, Brian had a bad fall a few weeks ago, and had to have emergency surgery on his back. He is now finally in a wonderful rehabilitation hospital and is working hard to regain the strength in his legs. I come to see him every day, and Michael and Amanda alternate days to visit. It’s been a somewhat busy year: As most of you know, I was pleased to shoot a Hallmark Christmas movie called Next Stop, Christmas. It was great fun and was shot fairly close to where we live, so I could come home everyday. The people on the movie were all so wonderful, and my trailer, where I was keeping my things and resting between shots, was called Rudolph. All the trailers were named after reindeer, but unfortunately mine didn’t have a red nose on the front. The only hard part of the movie was that it was shot in August when it was 95 degrees outside, and we all had to pretend that it was December, so we were wrapped up in coats and boots and gloves, and really really hot!”

When speaking on her fan club’s milestone: Slezak offered up: “As difficult as this year has been, the bright spot for the the fan club is that we celebrated the “Golden Anniversary” this last October, and you can see the letter I signed back in 1971 to permit Walter to start it. It’s completely amazing that he and I have known each other for 50 years! I don’t know how that is possible since I’m only 39 years old � . Of all the things we have to be thankful for, I include my many, many years of friendship with Walter, and the fan club that he created. And even though “One Life to Live” has ended, the club is still going, thanks to the wonderful folks who run it and take care of it. A great big thank you to Walter and Kit and AJ for their time and patience with me. I wish all of you a very Merry Christmas and Happy Holiday Season, and I thank all of you for sticking with me all these years. Sending you hugs and best wishes for a Happy New Year and healthy 2022.”

Share your well-wishes to Erika as we say goodbye to 2021 and ring a new year in the comment section, and congratulations to Walter and Erika for a fan club well-done… 50 years! Wow!  In addition, in case you missed it, check out the Michael Fairman Channel’s chat with Erika from May of 2020 below.
