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… Read more »

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… Read more »

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… Read more »

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.

Peter Bergman Signs 5-Year Deal with The Young and the Restless

Some of the hottest news on Daytime Emmy night was the reveal that 23-time Daytime Emmy nominee, and 3-time Emmy-winner, Peter Bergman is staying put at The Young and the Restless for quite some time to come, in fact, at least five more years.

Bergman, who plays Genoa City staple, Jack Abbott, has inked a new five-year deal to stay with the CBS daytime drama series, which is a significant contract in the world of soaps.  The usual contact for actors is somewhere between one and four years, with thirteen-week or twenty-six-week cycle, if the show were to not pick up an actors option.

While Y&R has been renewed thus far through the 2024 TV season, it would seem this move to ensure Bergman is sticking around as the show moves past its 50th year on the air, is a vote of confidence by Sony Pictures Television and CBS that the top-rated daytime drama will live on.

Deadline first reported the contract news.  Peter joined Y&R back in 1989, after first successful soap foray on All My Children as Dr, Cliff Warner.

So, what do you think about Peter signing on for five more years at Y&R? Comment below.

Lamon Archey and Sal Stowers Exit Days of our Lives

Coming up on Days of our Lives, both Lani and Eli Grant will be written off the canvas to facilitate the departures of Lamon Archey (Eli) and Sal Stowers (Lani).

According to the latest issue of Soap Opera Digest on newsstands now, Archey who stepped into the role in 2017, has made the decision to leave the long-running NBC soap opera, and will last air the week of July 4.

As for Stowers, she will last air on Friday, July 1st, and given her current storyline, it looks like Lani, who has confessed to murdering TJ (William Christian), will either be sent to prison, or will exit Salem with Eli.

This would not be the first-time that Stowers has departed DAYS.  After her debut in 2015, she was off the Salem canvas for a six-month break in 2016, before returning to the show through 2022.

We will share more information on Lamon and Sal’s exits as it comes to light.

Thompson, a previous Emmy-winner, who is up in the Lead Actor in a Drama Series category, shared the news via an Instagram video and also expressing in his post: “After 2.5 years of dodging Covid…I finally tested positive! I’m very sorry to say I won’t be attending the @daytimeemmys tomorrow night and that’s a bummer!! To all my fellow nominees and friends, I wish you all the best, have a fantastic night celebrating what we do.

Meanwhile, Melissa Ordway then shared she also tested positive for Covid. Ordway is a first-time nominee in the Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Drama Series category.  In a heartfelt message, Melissa stated: It has always been a dream of mine to be nominated for a Daytime Emmy Award and to bring my parents to the show. It was about to come true, until I tested positive for Covid yesterday afternoon. I’m so disappointed that I won’t be able to celebrate with everyone on Friday. I’ve cried lots of tears.  Thankfully, I’m asymptomatic. I’m super grateful no one in our home is sick. What a blessing.  To my Daytime community, have the best time. Wish I could be there but I’ll be watching from home and cheering on all of the nominees! Y&R bring home the gold! Love you all! And to everyone at CBS and Sony thank you for everything. So grateful to play Abby. @youngandrestlesscbs.  To my amazing parents, I’m so sorry that this weekend has fallen apart. I was so excited to attend the awards with you.
