Angell Conwell Makes A Return To The Young and the Restless!

Leslie Michaelson looks to be needed again for her legal expertise in Genoa City! Word today out of Soap Opera Digest is that actress Angell Conwell (Leslie) is on her way back on-screen on The Young and the Restless.

The actress told SOD: “I’m actually very fortunate to be the kind of character who may be kind of forgotten, but then out of the blue, she shows up again. So, it’s a good feeling to know that there’s still love there for Leslie.”

Conwell’s Leslie was brought on to the canvas of the CBS Daytime drama in 2010, but her character sort of got back-burnered after her relationship with Neil Winters (Kristoff St. John) hit the skidsm and she then married Dr. Barton Shelby (Terrell Tilford).

Is Leslie about to find that her new case involves defending her former flame Neil Winters, who while drunk grabbed the steering wheel from Nikki Newman (Melody Thomas Scott) that caused the car accident that hit Christine (Lauralee Bell) and made her lose her baby? Share your thoughts below!

That would be a great sl……really over that WHO “killed”Austin,nonsense. Also “whackadoddle”Kelly.

Agreed, vinman. I really liked Leslie, and I thought she and Neil were great together. What happened? They split so fast and I’m still not sure I understand why? Some stupid excuse, as usual….probably to introduce Hilstefer.
Furthermore, does anyone care to discover who killed Austin? He’s gone….good enough for me, albeit I would not be surprised if Victor had a hand in it, once he found out, he was up to no good against the Newmans……which makes me think that the Abbotts may have a hand in it also.
Kay-Kray-Kelly? On her way out, I’m sure.

I agree Ella Brown, I thought that Adam and Sharon were happiest when they were together;…once they bared their heart and soul to each other.

I still say Drucilla needs to come back! I dont like anything right now . The story about Austins killing is so boring. I hate Adam doesnt have Sharon on his mind because he loved her so much. Adam is acting so dumb. Adam used to care about getting Victor back . I thought Adam was a man I guess not anymore. This stuff about Sharon now being Austins killer is absolutely ludicrous. I think Sharon had more important things on her mind then Austin and she was with her daughter all night when he was killed. Time this show… Read more »

Maybe Pratt will have Leslie come back as a space alien. Or maybe she’ll launch this evil plot to freeze Genoa City. There are plenty of old and dumb GH stories to draw from that might make you like her this time around.

Su0000…Unfortunately VictoriaRowell has been doing her just out of prison CookieLyon routine for way toooooo long for CBS to bother…sad thing is Neil is stuck with the ghost of Drucilla for all duration of this show and NO ACTRESS can come in and replace that rant loving…paint myself into a corner and eat the brush actress.

I forgot about that and am happy that she is coming back, hopefully to stay.
I really enjoy her work and couldn’t figure out why they dumped her in the first place.

YES!!!! Leslie!!!!

I loved her, and I hope they at least address why the hell she married Barton in the first place. It made no sense and it was dropped.

I AGREE WITH YOU… but I am also very disappointed in the lack of real story telling Michael has been given …. you would think this story has more to it than they are giving it….

kinda confused…

I agree. The only fear they have Michael dealing with is loss of being able to satisfy his wife sexually. What about all the other side effects and possible outcomes? Why can’t we see Michael in the hospital like we did with Lily and her cancer treatments? No, we get this stupid I Know What You Did Last Valentine’s Day, Summer, story. One of the worst things that every happened to the show story wise (since Phelps came on board) was when they burned down Gloworm in favor of On the Boulevard, which no longer exists either. Judith Chapman can… Read more »

That sounds like a reasonable premise– Christine cannot do the case because she is the victim and when we last heard of Leslie she was joining the DA office, so it makes sense she will be one to prosecute Neil’s case. Leslie was never my favorite character but I must admit I’ve missed her. Avery could use a female friend again and the Winter’s circle needs to expand, so I hope the character, her husband and brother all come back to the show.

They can do without the brother. But, the actor who plays her husband, Terrell Tilford, did a terrific job in a major storyline on OLTL. If they give him something meaningful to do, he definitely has the skill to deliver.

Leslie/Sophia/Hilary might as well pop up as a CGI three headed character on this show and maybe then…Neil will have another soul mate.

Mary SF

LOL I get what you mean, poor Neil never found a woman close to being the whole deal like Dru– and most likely never will.

Michael’s post says Leslie’s case is to defend Neil, not prosecute him. See above. I believe this is conjecture, so who knows what the actual story is.

Mary SF
Guest
Mary SF

You’re right Michael’s post did say defend, my bad. But I do remember she left her law firm with Avery to go join the DA office, so unless the show changed that since we last heard of her, if she comes back she should prosecuting Neil, not defending him. Yet, like you said it all conjecture at this point what the story will be.

I’d surely rather have Leslie on board than Christine, any day, any time!

I miss Leslie. I was bummed when they gave her the boot for Hilary. Leslie’s so much more exciting! Plus Devon didn’t taint her like he did Hilary and Neil’s other girlfriend…

Ashleigh…y-e-s. At this point, give me Leslie over that one-dimensional WHACK-JOB Hilary ANY DAY!!!!! A-n-d…Leslie is W-A-Y TOO SMART to let herself get stupidly mixed up with that clueless, drooling, lovesick and PUNK-ASS F-O-O-L Devon…O-K-A-Y?!?!?

Y&R is so cast heavy that I forgot she was even gone. Returning to defend Neil is a good way to bring her back.

love leslie and missed angell!!
she was a fierce attorney and neil needs her in more ways than one!! hopefully they find their way back to eachother , she was neil s best love since dru , imo
hopefully her hot bro tyler s not far behind her! lily or abby could really use him since both characters love lifes are messy!

Hey, damien…LOL. Women do not sit around waiting for the next guy to fix, mend, or make their lives more exciting. Not only is that chauvinistic and insulting, but so 1950’s.
Perhaps I speak for myself, albeit I am happily married. However, we women are strong…stronger than some men….we do not need cradling.
The worst thing a woman can do is to get out of one relationship and jump into another.

He must be getting real women mixed up with Brooke Logan – someone who cannot live without a man. 🙂 I agree. THIS real woman here does not wait for a man to fix her life. She dated a lot of wrong men, but when the right one came along, she knew it. Then she worked in concert with said man to raise a happy family with children who could think on their own and learn to solve their own problems. The husband is her rock and there when she needs a shoulder but she definitely does not need her… Read more »

Doesnt land on my radar. What about bringing back William Russ as Tucker McCall. He was great! Put him in a triangle with Jill and Colin. Maybe then those two will become interesting?

Really makes no diff to me if she returns or not. But it would be interesting to see what Leslie has to say about the mess Neil has made of his life and his failed marriage since he was flaunting that to her.

I am happy to see she is back…. I did not at all relate to her just up and marrying some guy we never even met… that was so out of character for her…. I always thought there was some BIG storyline waiting to happen but nothing ever came of it…

As far as Hilary, I much prefer her with Neil vs. Devon…that character is just so dull!!!! I fail to see any spark with that guy!

I wish that Young And The Restless would stop bringing in more characters that will just fade into the background. There is enough talent on this show to keep storylines popping instead of bringing in new or returning characters. End the Austin storyline. It’s useless and he wasn’t on the show long enough for any one to care about who killed him. Summer is best forgotten too. Why can’t they do with Summer what they did with Leslie. Send her away and let us forget her for awhile. If she comes back she can come back as a better actress.

Totally agree. God, who gives a hoot
about stupid Austin…and I am beyond
bored with and annoyed by Summer
at this point.

Glad that Leslie is coming back, though.
She was never too exciting of a character
but I liked her in ways.

I agree ; the writers didn’t explain why Leslie and Tyler left. She needs to return.

Chris Harrison In First Interview Since ‘Bachelor’ Controversy Says He Wants To Be Back as Host; But GMA’s Michael Strahan Says Apology was a “Surface Response”

Thursday’s Good Morning America featured the highly-publicized first interview with ‘Bachelor’ franchise host and executive producer, Chris Harrison, since he stepped away from the show following his controversial remarks on current Bachelor contestant Rachel Kirkconnell, amid the airing of a season that has seen the first-ever Black male lead of the reality series, Matt James.

Speaking with GMA co-host, Michael Strahan, Harrison spoke of remarks he made during his interview with ex-Bachelorette Rachel Lindsay on Extra that sparked the firestorm.

Harrison admitted the words he spoke to Lindsey were “in a manner that perpetuates racism,” adding “I am an imperfect man I made a mistake and I own that. I believe that mistake doesn’t reflect who I am or what I stand for.”

 

The incident began when photos surfaced on social media of Kirkconnell at an Old South-themed party that she attended back in 2018, along with allegations she “liked” many Instagram posts that were racist in nature, and what many viewed as Harrison coming to her defense in this time of what he then called “cancel culture”.

On GMA, Chris expressed: “Antebellum parties are not OK,  Past, present, future, knowing what that represents is unacceptable.”

He also apologized to Lindsay, who had to shut down her Instagram account because of viral vitriol being sent her way over the incident with Harrison, adding this message to the public, “Anyone who is throwing hate towards Rachel Lindsay, please stop. It’s unacceptable.”

As to how he is trying to make amends, Harrison shared: “I made a mistake and I own that, Racism, oppression, these are big dynamic problems and they take serious work. I am committed to that work.”  The longtime Bachelor host then announced he is working with race educator Dr. Eric Dyson who has taught him about the idea of “counsel, not cancel”.

Chris says he plans to be back hosting the reality-dating series, expressing:  “I plan to be back. I want to be back.  This interview is not the finish line. There is much more work to be done.”

Following the exclusive, Michael Strahan described his conversation with Chris Harrison stating: “His apology is his apology, but it felt like it got nothing more than a surface response on any of this. Obviously, he is the man who wants to clearly stay on the show, but only time will tell if there is any meaning behind his words.”

So, what do you think of Chris Harrison’s responses during his first interview since the controversy? Should he return to hosting The Bachelor franchise? Comment below. But first check out his GMA exclusive.

GH’s Wes Ramsey Makes Statement on Criticism, Social Media, and Professionalism

General Hospital’s Wes Ramsey, who portrays polarizing character, Peter August on the ABC daytime drama series, responded to a recent take on his role from cast mate, Tristan Rogers (Scorpio) when a video made its way through social media.

The video was from a Cameo appearance, where Rogers offered an assessment of the Peter August storyline and expressed that while he knows Ramsey is a strong actor, he felt he was “wrong for the character” being that Peter was the son of the evil Faison played by Anders Hove.

Rogers also came to the defense of Ramsey and shared: “Don’t be too hard on Wes Ramsey. He’s got himself into a horrible storyline, and the storyline is the fault of the show. What they’ve literally done is they’ve painted themselves into a corner, and they don’t know how to get out of it.”

Currently, Peter’s story is front and center on GH with his wedding to Maxie (Kirsten Storms), and the fallout from all of the character’s dirty deeds.

Now Ramsey took to his Instagram account to address what transpired and his thoughts on the perils of social media, professionalism and acting, expressing: “Actors are storytellers, shapeshifters, chameleons. We’re also in the business of cultivating trust bc that’s how the best work is brought to life. We have to trust our imaginations, our instincts. We have to trust our fellow actors, because without them, there’s no scene to play. In the collaborative efforts of bringing any show to life, we also have to trust our directors each day to steer the arch of our story (like a conductor with a symphony) & trust our writers who are tasked with composing the symphonies we play out. I came up in a world of classical theater, where trusting the play, text, story is essential to the tightrope balancing act of making magic.  You will never hear me critique (on any public platform) the people responsible for the creative opportunities I enjoy each day. Without the trust of my writers, directors, producers & fellow actors, it would be impossible to live out my dreams. My job (& my only job) is to bring fearlessness, playfulness & passionate conviction to what has been created for me. My aim is to stretch myself (beyond the limits of where I think my boundaries may lye) each time I’m entrusted with material that allows those boundaries to be tested.

 

Every actor must believe they are the right person for their part or they will never achieve their potential, let alone surpass it. I was raised a gentleman & have two wonderful parents to thank for that, however, my polite personality (while rendering me easy to get along with on set) should have little bearing on my caliber of performance nor my castability as a professional.  I am leery of the pitfalls of social media & believe there are advantages to maintaining some mystery (even as a public figure) but I will always defend & protect what I hold dear (my job & my career) when they are publicly challenged, especially by those closest to me, whom I love & respect. Please know I bear no ill will. As a society, we are all still learning the full ramifications of living in an internet dominated culture. To all my many fans out there who offer encouragement & support, I hear you & am grateful for you. I’m having a blast… 🙂. Onward we go.”
