In a new interview from Soaps.com, Jacob Young talks about all the latest plights and relationships facing his alter-ego JR Chandler. From the return of Scott (now being played by Daniel Cosgrove), to JR’s plot to get joint custody of little AJ with Marissa, to his tumultuous relationship with Annie, Jacob touches upon it all.

Here is an excerpt on Jacob’s thoughts on Annie being not-to-thrilled on how he is planning to keep his son, by getting closer to Marissa, and her spinning out of control because of it!  Jacob Young: “Well, you know, Annie’s unpredictable. She’s a ticking bomb at times, so to keep her under control is an understatement. I don’t think he really has full control over her. He’s caught up with the situation, but she can’t understand it. He’s trying, he’s making an attempt at all of it.”

So do you want JR with Annie or Marissa, or someone new? Let us know.

Jannie is definitely the money couple on this show right now. We’ve seen the dynamic b/w Jarissa and it doesn’t matter that there’s a new actress. J.R. Chandler shouldn’t be with a milquetoast character like Marissa. J.R. has embraced his Chandler side and viewers don’t want to see a return of J.R. Martin. Marissa doesn’t have any place in J.R.’s life at this point besides being the “mother” of his child. Unlike the miserably failed pairing of Jarissa, Jannie is so fiery and combustible on their own that they don’t need a rehash of Jarissa to make them compelling. Their… Read more »

JR belongs with Annie.
Of course they will be messy and dare I say dysfunctional but they bring the drama and nothing can rival MCE and JY’s chemistry which is explosive.

JR and Marissa were dull and boring and void of any actual chemistry. I’ll accept the travesty that JR has to co-parent HIS son with Marissa but if they ever decide to revisit Jr and Marissa’s “oh so epic romance” *snark* AMC has lost this viewer.

You don’t mess with a good thing and Jr and Annie is the best thing AMC’s got going for them.

Love JR and Annie. They are dysfunctional when put together but hey that’s why we all love soap operas. They are drama and fun. If it’s wrong to love JR and Annie together, then I rather be wrong than right.

I hope AMC gives them a chance to become officially a couple in PV.

If we are lucky enough maybe 2011 will be JAnnie year !

Team Annie and JR 🙂

I definitely want him with Annie. Jacob Young & Melissa Egan have the most combustible chemistry I have seen in ages!! And that’s any show (Daytime or Primetime). All My Children hit a goldmine with the JR/Annie pairing. It totally drew me back in to watching and is the ONLY reason I continue to watch the show. I don’t think JR ever loved Marissa. I think he cared about her but it was mostly gratitude, wanting to replace Babe and wanting a mother figure for AJ. Not to mention needing someone to take care of him when he was dying… Read more »

JR belongs with Annie, and not just in the short-term. Jacob and Melissa have the most combustible, searing chemistry in daytime right now — it would be foolish to waste it by pairing JR with Marissa a second time. JR and Annie are the only reason I started watching (and taping) AMC regularly and if they are split up, there will be no more reason to watch! Their story is interesting, compelling and addicting. Watching the old-school storyline arc from hatred to love has been nothing short of magical with Jacob Young and Melissa Claire Egan playing the parts. And… Read more »

It’s JR and Annie, Marissa shouldn’t be nowhere near this at this point. JR belongs w/ Annie. And Annie belongs w/ JR.

I AM a JY fan, have been from the start, that being said iam also a MCE fan have been sinse she came to PV, and to have these two amazing charaters together is just the cherry on my sundae.lol it pains me to say this but i will, i ACTUALLY could not watch the JR/MARISSA storyline i did try but when he was parired with this charater something was always MISSING from the charater of JR that i KNEW AND LOVED, he was somewhat BORING, i love the CANCER SL they did for JR, but would have rather seen… Read more »

Based on this interview, and last week’s AMC episodes, I think the writers are once again toying with the idea of putting a wrench in the JR/Annie relationship by having JR have conflicting feelings for Marissa. Basically, this is to provide Jannie with more angst, but primarily to give this new actress (Sarah Glendening as Marissa) a shot. They’re also toying with the idea of ending Jannie, at least for the time being, once the relationship makes one or both self-destruct. I can’t express how much I hate both potential story arcs — they are completely wrong for both JR… Read more »

Merry Christmas, Michael! Thank you for giving viewers the chance to respond. I think Lorraine Broderick made a genius move in starting this pairing and I would hate for this writing staff to end it. Personally speaking, if the writers make the error of ending JR and Annie, they should be punished:) There aren’t too many pairings to root for on this show, JR and Annie are one of the strongest. Jacob and Melissa (whom I’d love if you could interview together- I know you did when David Canary was leaving when they got to LA, but I mean about… Read more »

To be honest, I don’t want Jr. Chandler with neither Annie nor Marrisa. I pefer the writer bring back recast of Babe that was Jr’s True and only Love of his Life and son’s real Mother. Jr need to stay away from Annie, so she can be with someone else and the Writers need to write that Marrisa isn’t legally AJ adopted Mother which I hate very much like alot of Viewer don’t like either. The show need to find a Recast of Babe in Style Performance Between of Alexa Havins and Amanda Bake Form if they can’t get Alexa… Read more »

I have no interest in seeing the character of JR destroyed again as he was when paired with Babe just so that TPTB could prop her up.

Jabe should’ve ended after Babe had kiddiepool sex with Josh because big bad JR was too proccupied worrying about his sister lost at sea and not focusing on Babe for 12 hours.

There’s dysfunction and then there’s character destruction and Jabe was all about destroying JR so that Babe could come out smelling like roses.

I don’t know whose bright idea it was to have JR have feelings of gratitude/nostalgia/whatever for Marissa who was, not even two weeks ago, hellbent on taking AJ away from him. JR has been in love with Annie since this summer, that’s how JY has been consistently playing it and the writing was consistently supporting it until two weeks ago. JR & Annie have been the show’s most popular pairing in the fan polls for a while now and have the potential to bring in more viewers if they were more advertised so why try to fix something that ain’t… Read more »

I agree, Marley. Babe was a poison to JR’s life. I’m glad she is dead. I just want JR free from the Carreys i.e Krystal and Marissa and I want for him to embrace his Chandler inner instead of trying to morphing himself into a boring JR Martin only to please Tad who betrayed him when he helped Krystal and Babe kidnapping AJ. That’s why I’m rooting for JR to be with Annie. Annie won’t ask him to be someone else, she will take him with his qualities and imperfections unlike Marissa or Babe or Tad or Krystal who always… Read more »

I stopped watching AMC about 10 years ago and was reintroduced last March by a friend. Once I saw the chemistry between JY and MCE I was hooked. I for one can say that they are the only reason I watch this soap. If the writers decide to destroy this story line in the next couple if weeks, I for one will cease watching this soap!! As far as I can tell AMC is hanging by a thread and need every fan out there. They have hit a jackpot with these two actors and story line, minus Marissa and Scott!

I tuned back in when the JR/ANNIE pairing really started, i saw chemistry between them when ANNIE frist moved into the chandler mansion, and she was friends with Babe, MCE/JY imo had smoking hawt chem even then, i knew the writers would not pair them unless Babe was gone,,and now i get my wish, now they are the REASON i watch, there are a few charaters on the show i still LIKE, Amanda, Liza, but the ones that hold me glued to the tv are JANNIE, if AMC keep trying to force JR/MARISSA down my thoart i will trun the… Read more »

I honestly don’t know what AMC is pulling here, they do realize they are on the same time slot as Y&R right? a show that gives fans what they want. I see JR and Annie who’s SL I admit I didn’t want to follow but it pulled me in. I didn’t think the Chandlers could be reborn or reconfigured, but they are. But then we have this custody battle and the continuous IDK when JY’s JR can finally move on from the “special” Marissa. A character that I have grown to loathe. I couldn’t watch his cancer SL b/c I… Read more »

The writers SHOULD NOT pair JR with Marissa again..because I will stop watching the show. Jr and Annie provide heat, passion, excitement, and so much electricity..I’ve been watching soaps for 15 years, and in all honesty, I’ve never seen a couple like JR and Annie who provide so much chemistry and thrill like they do!!!!!!!!!!!!!! JR and Annie all the way baby!!!!!!!!!!

Hello jannie fan here, just wanted to say how much iam loving these two flawed charaters, they are real to me, they have more fire than any couple on AMC right now. IMO i just wish the writers would write for them meaty SL like they used to do for these types of couples back in the day. why don’t they do those anymore, is it to hard for them? i would like to know. instead they give us the same old tired repeats they always do, are they just LAZY? why do they never follow up on the things… Read more »

Kelly Ripa’s First Book On the Way in 2022

Former All My Children star, now co-host of Live with Kelly and Ryan and a successful executive producer in her own right, Kelly Ripa, will add writer to her list of credits.

New this week is that Ripa is sharing a look at her real-life in a book, that will be released next spring in April of 2022.

According to the intel, the book entitled Live Wire will feature sharp, funny, and honest collection of real-life stories from Ripa, showing the many dimensions and crackling wit of the beloved daytime talk show host.

As soap fans know, Ripa has been married to Mark Consuelos (Ex-Mateo, AMC) and the two share three children together.

The loglines for the release share: “In Live Wire, Kelly shows what really makes her tick. As a professional, as a wife, as a daughter and as a mother, she brings a hard-earned wisdom and an eye for the absurdity of life to every minute of every day. It is her relatability in all of these roles that has earned her fans worldwide and millions of followers on social media. Whether recounting how she and Mark really met, the level of chauvinism she experienced on set, how Jersey Pride follows her wherever she goes, and many, many moments of utter mortification (whence she proves that you cannot, in fact, die of embarrassment) Kelly always tells it like it is. Ms. Ripa takes no prisoners.
Surprising, at times savage, a little shameless and always with humor… Live Wire shows Kelly as she really is offscreen—a very wise woman who has something to say.”

So intrigued to read Kelly’s book when it is released next year? Comment below.
