Quite honestly this is a subject I wasn’t very familiar with. But from what I can see Karla and the writers are handling it with great sensitivity instead of cliches you might see coming out of certain segments of society or pop culture. But the threat of prejudice is still there since Maya’s sister is holding the secret over Maya’s head. I must admit I think Dustin Hoffman in Tootsie (coincidentally a soap opera setting) and Jack Lemmon in Some Like It Hot, both dressing up and pretending to be women, was amusing. I was just naive enough to not… Read more »

Here’s a little trivia: the very first transgender soap character appeared in the 1970s on the very shortlived syndicated serial ‘All That Glitters’ and played by a pre-Dallas Linda Grey! To see a very realistically written soap opera transgender character and the problems she faced when people found out and with discrimination google Hayley Cropper of the British soap Coronation Street— tptb at B&B want to do a powerful, well done transgender storyline need to read the Hayley Cropper struggle for acceptance in a world of hate and discrimination!!!

Absobloodylutely, jimh! Our Hayley was brilliant and I do hope those at B&B take the time to study her story!
BTW…you mentioned a chat site for Corrie. I have been looking for you and cannot seem to find it. Would you mind sharing so we can possibly have a good natter about Corrie some time?
I will have to look up ‘ALL THAT GLITTERS’. I remember the title but have never seen the programme. I adore Linda Grey!
Cheers and best regards X

I must apologize but I now feel I am too old for soaps. The transgender issue isn’t the problem for me. It’s the fact that Maya has never told Rick and I just can’t stand the sister. My own sister and myself have been thru some pretty rough times but this blackmail thing is way over the line. I’m also way way over Brooke and her problems and coming between Deacon and Quinn (not that I have any great love for either of them) but whatever Brooke gets out of interfering in one relationship too many is well deserved. I… Read more »

Y&R Shares ‘Most Memorable Moments Of Dina Mergeron’: What Was Your All-Time Favorite?

Yesterday, viewers of The Young and the Restless needed the hankies as they had to say goodbye to the character of Dina Mergeron and actress Marla Adams who was killed-off the CBS Daytime drama series due to Dina’s battle with Alzheimer’s coming to a a heartbreaking end.

Adams had been with the series on and off for over five decades.  In story and during her run, when Dina reappeared or disappeared it was a game-changer for the Abbott family.  She was a wealthy woman who often put her own needs in front of her children and her marriage to John Abbott (Jerry Douglas).  From affairs, leaving her children when they were young, to becoming a manipulative business woman, Dina Mergeron was no push-over.

When Marla Adams returned to the series four years ago in 2017, it was the intent that during Dina’s decline from Alzheimer’s  disease that she would reunite with her children and help the family find some inner-peace from all the damage and pain she had caused them through the years.

In honor of the wonderful portrayal of Marla Adams, Y&R put together a clip package of some of Dina’s most memorable moments.   You can watch it below!

Then let us know, what was your all time favorite Dina moment via the comment section below.   And if you have not done so already, make sure to check out Michael Fairman TV’s farewell interview with Marla, posted shortly after Dina passed on Friday’s episode.
