You’d think drucilla’s spirit would show up for y&r’s 40th anniversary given all of victorial rowell’s contributions to y&r’s ratings. But she was very vocal abt hollywood’s racial issues w/c must not have helped her career. There are a plethora of lgbt storylines but there’s resistance to racial diversity. It’s not only w/ daytime soaps. bravo’s real housewives franchise is pretty much considered the new soap operas what w/ those housewives being household names and getting more publicity than daytime actors. The highest rated bravo soap is rh of atlanta w/c is full of African american personalities. You’d think that would encourage more racial diversity from soaps. But nope bec majority of soap operas from daytime to primetime to reality tv shows like the rh franchise have majority white chars. There would be more racial diversity on soaps if hollywood was primarily abt money. But that’s not hollywood’s priority. The Bible’s ratings are the highest for cable. There should be more racial diversity much like there should be more religious projects from hollywood. But of course hollywood is against more religious projects much like it’s against more racial diversity.

Wow here we go again with the racism junk. I can’t figure out where you are coming from. Like many I too would like to see more diversity in all media and soaps certainly could do better but you have to stop whining about this. It is not a conspiracy. Victoria Rowell hasn’t been brought back to Y&R not because she is black (there have been many black actresses on that show since anyway) but because she pissed off too many people on that show and reports of her attitude are pretty well known. I loved Drucilla but Rowell was difficult to deal with and many of her co-stars simply don’t want her back. Those same co-stars have no trouble with other black actors so lets leave the racism stuff out of this please. It wouldn’t kill Y&R to have a decent LGBT storyline either, where is this plethora of LGBT storylines you talk about? There are certainly more black characters/storylines than LBGT, not that we need to keep count but why not diversity FOR ALL and not just the one group you care about. Bring on the blacks, the Asians, the gays, give me some Latino and how about some little people too? Why not, all should be welcome and represented. Lets just keep the religious stuff to a minimum, its way too toxic and has caused enough damage to society already.

Great response. Id like to see more diversity as well, and an overweight couple in love, handicapped actors and those with learning disabilities. BC does need to stop whining like you say because BC isnt going to win any votes from us by constantly repeating herself.

Since you like repeating yourself so will i. Sometimes we get tired of hearing the same old broken record being played over and over again, especially when the needle gets stuck in the groove. Maybe if you go back and reread some of your own post you might just see some racism there too. If you dont see then you are blinded by your own criticism.

This post is about BETH MAITLAND…she is white! She is a part of the heart and soul of Y and R. She brings a warmth and tenderness to the part of Traci that the show always needs. I‘m not sure why people are ranting about diversity…the show has recently hired two new black actors, significantly beefed up the part of previously under used Lesley Michaelson, hired two new Hispanic characters…and surprise…not many of these new additions are taking off as hoped. Let‘s enjoy Beth coming back and hope she gets some good stuff to play. She herself is a minority…she is a REAL woman…not an anorexic size zero.

I would hope Traci would encounter Lauren and tell her off about Fen bullying Jamie. The scenes would be great if there would be flashbacks to when Lauren bullied Traci over her weight. Lauren needs to fully know how Jamie felt being bullied by Fen and Summer.

Beth is a lovely lady and Traci is a great character… and I am excited to have her back for as long as we get her!!!

How about a comment about Traci’s homecoming? I would so enjoy having this character on the canvas, the actress on contract. Traci brings something to Genoa City that does not exist day to day. Traci is a conscience and, if she never would be given major storyline, she could be an integral part of the community and a surprise element to plots.

I am so glad that Traci is coming back. I just wish they would make her a full time castmember again.

I always love when Traci shows up into town. She is the voice of reason in the Abbott family, and if always a joy to see!

She is the glue that holds the family together as Abby once told her. And as much as I love John Abbott he is dead why don’t we use Traci as the voice of reason.

yes, I am excited about her coming back…..
she is a beautiful person!!!
and I do love her as a person and an actress…..
maybe while she is back on the show this time, she can get weight lost program
going on the young and the restless….
a lot of the skinny viewers who are watching ‘YTR” need to realize that weight lost
is not as easy people think it is and it could be medical.
