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

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…

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.

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.

The Kelly Clarkson Show Renewed For Two More Seasons

NBCUniversal revealed that their ongoing relationship with Grammy and Daytime Emmy winner, Kelly Clarkson had expanded further with news today that the company has renewed The Kelly Clarkson Show for two more seasons thus cementing her place in the daytime television landscape.

The renewal will keep Clarkson on through 2023.

In a statement, Tracie Wilson, executive vice president of NBCUniversal Syndication Studios said: “One ray of sunshine in this wildly unpredictable year is that we get to continue to deliver to stations and fans a show that brings people together.”   She added, “This wouldn’t be possible without the heart and humor of the talented and dedicated Kelly Clarkson and our production team, led by the incomparable Alex Duda, both of whom are masters of storytelling. It’s easy to see why Emmy voters, critics and viewers have become such loyal fans of the show.”

Previously in 2019,  the talk show was renewed for a second season shortly after it delivered the highest-rated talk show debut in seven years back

The show currently airs on more than 200 stations in 100 percent of the United States.

Clarkson had been filming episodes of her show from her home in Montana during the summer, but then for the start of the fall season in September returned to her Universal Studios set to host the show without an in-studio audience.  In addition, Kelly is also currently see as a coach on NBC’s hit singing competition, The  Voice.

Tamara Braun Returns To DAYS; What Did You Think of The Entrance of Ava Vitali?

Friday’s cliffhanger episode of Days of our Lives brought with it the highly-anticipated re-entrance of mob moll, Ava Vitali as Tamara Braun returned to the NBC daytime drama series in her Daytime Emmy-winning role.

Braun was last seen on General Hospital as Dr. Kim Nero, but now back on DAYS, Tamara gets to play a trouble-making bad girl, in one of the most soap-famous roles of her career.  She originated the part back in 2008.

Photo: JPI

In story, it is revealed during the episode that Phillip Kiriakis (Jay Kenneth Johnson) is in cahoots with Ava, and the expectation that he is supposed to launder mob money through the company and get Xander (Paul Telfer) out of the way.  She gives Phillip a steely threat – that he owes her from saving him from all of his debt, and in return it’s time for him to pay up!  Ava then recalls how she vouched for him with her cousin Angelo and how she is in Salem to make sure he delivers on what he promised.

The talk turns to everyone thinking Ava is dead.  She says it needs to stay that way.  Phillip asks if she planning on trying to rekindle things with Steve (Stephen Nichols) … and what about Joey, who is falsely imprisoned thinking he murdered her.  Is she going to let him rot in jail?  She says she has to remain on the down low, but he needs to take care of Xander and fast.

After Phillip exits, Ava texts someone an update and then thinks twice about letting Steve know she is alive, although we see, from her flashback of their night of passion, that she is heavily on her mind.

Much trouble ahead for Kayla (Mary Beth Evans), Tripp (Lucas Adams), Steve, Phillip, Xander and who knows who else with Ava snooping around Salem.

So, glad to see Tamara finally back on DAYS? What did you think of how they are tying a back-from-the-dead Ava to the story?  How do you think Ava ended up alive and well? Was Dr. Rolf (William Utay) somehow involved? Share your thoughts and your theories via the comment section below.

OLTL Alum Renée Elise Goldsberry Lands Lead Role in Tina Fey’s New Comedy for Peacock

We all remember her fondly when she rocked the role of Evangeline Williamson on One Life to Live, and now years later this Tony and Grammy Award-winning star has been cast in the lead role in a Tina Fey comedy series!  We are speaking of the one and only, Renée Elise Goldsberry.

The Hamilton alum will star opposite Sara Bareilles in Girls5eva, about a 1990s girl group that gets another shot at stardom.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, “Goldsberry will play Wickie, the glamorous, big-voiced star of the group back in the day. Her solo career has hit a ditch, but she’s determined to use a new opportunity to retake her rightful place as pop royalty.”

In a statement, Goldsberry expressed:”This wickedly talented team is creating something brave and new  I’m grateful I get to be in the room with them. I honestly can’t think of a better way to transition out of this year and into the new one than laughing with strong and beautiful women.”

In the log lines for the series: Girls5eva centers on the members of a one-hit wonder group from the 1990s. When a young rapper samples their hit, they reunite to give their pop star dreams one more shot. They may be grown women balancing spouses, kids, jobs, debt, aging parents, and shoulder pain, but can‘t they also be Girls5eva?

The show from Tina Fey, Robert Carlock and Meredith Scardino will bow on NBCUniversal’s streaming service, Peacock.  No date yet has been given for when production will begin or when it might premiere but we will keep you updated.

So, what do you think of the news of Renée landing yet another feather in her talented cap on a comedy series that sounds right up her alley? Comment below.
