Alice Hunter Done at Y&R

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.”

Y&R's Jeanne Cooper will be back on-screen just in time for Christmas Episodes!

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

Mary

I am more than happy she is leaving.

Harry

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

Bradley

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 her acting is horrible maybe time to close the doors! Recasting Adam ! Why????

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

GramS

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

But, it happens everyday.

Mary

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!!
❤️

Mary
Mary

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
Celia

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.

Lee

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!!!

Violet Lemm
Violet Lemm

Yea, he’s into her alright, the dirty old man!

Jimmy

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 on as a love interest for Justin, or maybe as Flo’s long-lost second cousin twice removed, since Brad Bell seems intent on integrating her to the canvas, by bringing on her mother, and shoving her down our throats with the same repetitive scenes with Zoe. Ugh.

Celia
Celia

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 this case, GC.
Oh….I completely forgot about Brytni–could she be the new Lily? …or someone for Devon ( oh, Lord–poor girl)?… Does Brytni sing? LOL.

Nothing against the Nu Jordan on GH, but Alice Hunter may be a better Jordan. IJS

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

Damien

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
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
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.

Kay

That is notbgoing to happen the head of cbs daytime AM is all in for them! New blood is not a problem its shoving them down your throat five times a day ! Absolute horrible writing

Violet Lemm

Bon Voyage, Au Revoir, Adious, Sayonara,Ciao, Aufwiedershien, Good Bye. Yea, Alice Doesn’t Live Here Anymore!

❤️–say it, Miss Violet!!

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?????>

jaybird369

Fine. Whatever. Also…get rid of that GOD-AWFUL, BLAND AND EVEN MORE ANNOYING Ken Doll Nate and I’ll be even happier!!!!!

Later.

HaHa…Ken doll? Too funny, Jay.

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
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!!

James R. Poissant

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.

Tani Sterling
Tani Sterling

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!

Momo

Her character is boring. Goodbye.

Joe
Joe

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.

Celia
Celia

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 me because it happens all the time on soaps, but personally I think Jack and Phyllis are end game, yet I admit, I really enjoyed Jack’s little fling with Gloria–too bad that was so short lived.

RAB

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.

So long – farewell – Auf wiedersehen – good bye!!

Another ill-conceived & half-baked character created by Mal Young bites it – now ditch the lame Rosales family!!

GET BACK TO CHARACTER-DRIVEN STORY!!

GENERAL HOSPITAL: Kim Tells Drew The Devastating Truth About Oscar

We love seeing one of the finest actresses in the genre, Tamara Braun (Kim) getting an opportunity to have an emotional storyline and to become more front and center stage.  On Wednesday’s episode of ABC’s General Hospital, after Oscar (Garren Stitt) suffered from seizures and was taken to the hospital, an overwrought Kim is asked by Elizabeth (Rebecca Herbst) what is wrong with Oscar?  Kim tells her he has a kind of cancer, but does not say what kind. and is clearly not ready to talk about it yet.

Oscar’s dad, Drew (Billy Miller) arrives at GH.  When he finds his son, Oscar tells Drew that it was just low blood sugar that caused him to land in the hospital, but Drew looks disbelieving.   Josslyn (Eden McCoy) who has been waiting in the park for Oscar on their 1-year anniversary of dating, but spent time with Cameron (William Lipton) instead (who tried to kiss her), gets a call from Drew’s phone.  Oscar informs her he is the hospital but is OK.  When Josslyn arrives he shares a photo album he has kept of their time together over the past year, and we hear as an emotional back-drop Josslyn’s performance at the Nurses Ball, “I Never Knew”.

Elizabeth tries one more time to talk to Kim, and to tell her she must level with Drew about his son’s condition. Kim informs Liz; she does not want it to color the time Drew and Oscar will have left together.

When Drew confronts Kim, she tells him this has happened with Oscar before.  After demanding answers, Kim finally opens up and breaks down and admits that their son has an inoperable brain tumor, and nothing can be done for him.  She has been dealing with this for the last two years, and has consulted with doctors and no one knows just how long Oscar will live.  Drew gets more shocking news; Kim has never let on to Oscar that he is dying.  She wants him to get up and look forward to the next day for whatever remaining time he has left.  Drew is in tears, as the two parents share a hug.   Touching work by Billy Miller and Braun, as well throughout from Garren Stitt.

Kristina (Lexi Ainsworth) is back in Port Charles, explaining to her parents that things went south with Parker, and that she needed her own life. She says that the two of them have broken up and she is home to stay and moving in with Sam (Kelly Monaco)!

Thanks to Chase (Josh Swickard), Anna (Finola Hughes) is reunited with her son, Peter (Wes Ramsey)   Chase warned Peter not to hurt Anna, or he would be arrested.  Finn (Michael Easton) is worried Anna will be heartbroken.  He also thanks Chase for all je has done and the brothers bond, while Chase also gives an update that Cassandra (Jessica Tuck) is nowhere to be found.

Anna has now come to see Peter to tell him that she is his mother, and if there is anything he needs to please come to her.  Peter is still taking a hard-line when it comes to Anna; not letting his guard down, but keeping his distance and his anger towards her for abandoning him as a child,

So, what did you think of Oscar’s diagnosis that he has an inoperable brain tumor? What did you think of today’s performance by Braun, Miller and Hughes? What do you think will happen next in the story?  Comment below.
