He’s left the building…mostly his choice?…let go…he’s a good actor who seems destined for better things(GH or Days should snap him up but i think he could have a good shot at primetime or films)…he’ll move on and we should too!!!

“mostly his choice,” yes, but TPTB could have done more to keep him on the show. He deserved “outs” like other major actors get on the soaps, but they didn’t want to pay him what he’s worth.

At least with this situation, I’m not as upset as with the MM firing. Now THAT is unacceptable and may be the deal-breaker for me continuing to watch this show, which has become a crap-fest!

I guess it was anti-climatic; as he has been leaving so often. This time there wasn’t another one year extension. Great actor, appears to be a great guy and partyier! He will be missed, but in soaps this is just par for course.

He would be a perfect Jason recast on GH…. maybe Jason is in a coma and wakes up as Jason pre-mob??!!! In any case he would be better there than on Y&R. With Jill Farren Phelps in charge, Y&R is unwatchable period!

Why ANYONE would hire Jill Farren Phelps after she almost ruined General Hospital is beyond me. It makes me think CBS wants their number 1 soap to fail.

Is this why it has been so boring and drawn out lately? I’m a slightly new fan. I almost stopped watching when I saw Phyllis go into another coma before she could tell what Sharon did. They are just dragging the situation out too long for me..

Well I’d like to wish Billy Miller good luck for his future projects he played the part well espicially when he argues with Victor I will miss that because since the role will be un-recasts with David Tom there will be no more arguments and figthing with Victor. I welcome back David Tom in the role and I am looking forward with future storyline involving Billy who will end up with Chloe or someone new.

Billy, you are adorable and an amazing actor. I’m very sorry that you’re leaving the show as you made the role of “Billy” so much fun. Loved your scenes – my interest piqued when you were on the screen. Just watched the new “Billy” – but quickly found that I had no interest in the new actor. Nothing wrong with him but he’s not you. You have the whole package. Wish you a blessed life – do the right things and take care of yourself. I will really miss you on the Y&R.

Will miss you so much Billy. Your a wonderful and very enjoyable actor to watch. On another note when the Hell is Phyllis going to wake up! Stories drag on too long. I hope Jill doesn’t keep doing a number on the Young and Restless. I would hate to see it taken off the air after it has been number one for to long. Best of Luck Billy and God Bless.

Cailtin Reilly to Appear in General Hospital Tribute Episode to Her Father John Reilly

Tik Tok star, Cailtin Reilly, who is the daughter of the late soap veteran, John Reilly, will play a key role in the General Hospital tribute episode in her dad’s honor.

According to Variety who broke the casting news, Caitlin will portray Annie, formerly known as Anna, the daughter of her father’s character Sean Donely and Tiffany Hill (Sharon Wyatt).

In a statement on her casting,  Caitlyn expressed: “Words can’t describe how honored I am to be playing my dad’s daughter on the show. I grew up on the set of ‘General Hospital,’ watching him work for years, so it’s exciting to dive into a new character in honor of him. He’ll absolutely be by my side in spirit on set rooting me on. It fills my heart with gratitude to be a part of this tribute to him, and to feel so close to him working on a show he loved so much doing.”

The character of Anna was last seen on-air back in August of 2013, when she was portrayed by Courtney Halverson. In story at that time, Sean was poisoned by polonium and he teamed up with Luke (Anthony Geary) to track down the man who extorted millions for the cure, while Anna repeatedly got in contact with that man to get the medicine her father so desperately needed.

John Reilly past away back in January 2021.  The talented actor first appeared on GH back in 1984 and last appeared on the daytime drama series back in 2013.

So, looking forward to seeing Caitlyn playing Sean and Tiffany’s daughter? Comment below.

Former ‘Bachelor’ Colton Underwood Comes Out as Gay

This morning on the highly-promoted sit-down interview with GMA’s Robin Roberts, former ‘Bachelor’ lead Colton Underwood, revealed that he was gay and that he has finally come to terms with it.

The ex-football star shared: “Obviously this year’s been a lot for a lot of people, and it’s probably made a lot of people look themselves in the mirror and figure out who they are and what they’ve been running from or what they’ve been putting off in their lives. For me, I’ve ran from myself for a long time and I’ve hated myself for a long time, and I’m gay. I came to terms with that that earlier this year and have been processing it. The next step in all of this was sort of letting people know. I’m still nervous, but it’s been a journey for sure. I’m like the happiest and healthiest I’ve ever been in my life. That means the world to me.”

Underwood expressed he went through a very dark time to be able to reveal his truth: “I got into a place in my personal life that was dark and bad. I can list a bunch of different things, but they’d all be excuses. I think overall the reason why now is because I got to a place where I didn’t think I was ever going to share this. I would rather have died than say ‘I’m gay,’ and I think that was sort of my wake up call. There was a moment in L.A. that I woke up and I didn’t think I was going to wake up,” he said. “I didn’t have the intentions of waking up, and I did. And I think for me that was my wake up call, that, ‘This is your life. Take back control.’ I think looking back even beyond that is… even just suicidal thoughts and driving my car close to a cliff, like, ‘Oh, if this goes off the cliff, it’s not that big of a deal.’ I don’t feel that anymore.”’

As to the questions or anger that ‘Bachelor Nation’ are going to have that Underwood misled the female contestants on his season, or he duped the audience, Colton said: “I thought a lot about this…Do I regret being ‘The Bachelor?’ And handling it the way that I did?’  I do think I could have handled it better, I’ll say that. I just wish I wouldn’t have dragged people into my own mess of figuring out who I was. I genuinely mean that, but also at the same time I can say ‘I’m sorry’ to all of those women, I can also say ‘thank you,’ because without them and without the ‘Bachelor’ franchise, I don’t know if this would have ever come out.”

Colton was highly-promoted during his season as the “Virgin Bachelor”.  He acknowledged he was indeed a virgin at that time, but it was because he was gay, but just “didn’t know how to handle it”.   Underwood also shared he was thankful to God that he was cast on the reality-competition as one of its season’s leads because he thought that would make him straight.  He told Roberts in his talk with God, ‘Finally, you’re letting me be straight. Finally, you’re giving me a wife, a fiancée, and then I’m going to have the kids, then I’m going to have the house, and then I’m going to have all this.’

As to his contentious break-up with ‘Bachelor’ contestant, Cassie Randolph, where she had at one time had a restraining order put on Underwood and later revoked it, he admitted: “I would like to say sorry for how things ended. I messed up, I made a lot of bad choices.”  But told Robin Roberts, he indeed loved Cassie, sharing, “That only made it harder and more confusing for me. if I’m being very honest, I loved everything about her. And it’s hard for me to articulate exactly what my emotions were, and going through that relationship with her was, because I obviously had an internal fight going on. I would just say that I’m sorry from the bottom of my heart. I’m sorry for any pain and emotional stress I caused. I wish it wouldn’t have happened the way it did. I wish that I would have been courageous enough to fix myself before I broke anybody else.”

Underwood shared that his upbringing in the Catholic church and being in the world of high school, college, and pro sports contributed to why he never came out previously, citing,: ” learned in the Bible that gay is a sin. I had made mistakes in my sports and in my athletic career, and when you make mistakes, ‘that play was gay’ or that was a bad… gay was always affiliated with a connotation of negativity, and I think there’s a lot of things when I look back, like, ‘No wonder I held it in.’”

So, were you surprised that Colton revealed he was gay? How do you feel about the journey he expressed in his interview on GMA to speak his truth? Share your thoughts via the comment section below.
