You know what is really a shame is that Christian le Blanc has been wasted for three years on Y&R. Watching this is a hoot and he has been a good sport just like Jess Walton. I wonder what he did to MAB to make her not write for him all he does is carry a briefcase and be Victors errand boy. I am afraid the wedding is Victor & Sharon.

I have never watched one minute of the loud, silly Talk. Even the promos for it are irritating. Who cares? My tv goes immediately to ABC right after B&B, then I have to mute it while they finish up with the equally irritating, loud Chew. But come January 16 my tv will be switched off after B&B.

LeBlanc is a class guy, I think. Again, ATWT and GL were not good enough to save and to nurture, but the webs will use the genre to bring attention to the replacement, the vapid THE TALK! Oh dear.

seriously, a ‘surprise” lol, okayyy, this is just simple cross promotion, the talk,& the young and the restless, are both cbs shows, the wife of the guy who runs the network is one of the host. both show are just using one another and as for sheryl being surprise, well if you bought her overacting then your the only one surprise. this is just another stunt casting , and nothing more, nothing less.

I don’t watch the talk, so I really don’t know Sheryl. But, I will have to watch her because I’m a big Y&R fan. The guess of whose wedding is a different story. It will probably be Victor and Sharon. That’s bad enough! Hate that story line…….

I love Michael in any capacity. Now… can we get done with the who dun it, the ridiculous ganster and daughter show, lets get to real meaty stories that are real to us, not this foolish, never in a lifetime gonna happen situations. Chloe acts like a dingbat and she used to be city suave, Victoria shows no education or backbone anymore and she should be working and doing something besides crying and peleeeeeze, someone do something with her hair, its the worst on tv. She is gorgeous, bring back the classy smart business woman. What the heck with cat woman, get rid of her, its just a ruse to get the other who dun it story out of the way without harming the main players, but one of them should be the killer and no one will know but us. Give nick a job and a reason to be around instead of just jumping any gal in town, he has no smarts. I hate to say it but Adam shines, he is smart and realistic. Daniel, a waste and Kevin needs to grow a couple. No more Daisy, preggies, babies, lets get some reality into this before this show hits the skids too.

All I can say is that you are sooooo right. I love Vicky and Billy together, I know TPTB think it will be boring if they are together, but what about giving them a great story together, maybe searching for something, doing PI work together, something fun and romantic. I agree Vicky should work too, I’m sick of all the babyline stories. I’m just sick of what has become of Daniel, another wasted character. I still watch it, but I’m really getting bored with it. They need a giant change like Days of Our Lives has done.

Here we go again with CBS trying to cross promote another soap opera replacement. Not going to get me to watch the Talk, ever.

In a few tweets on Sunday, Lauralee acknowledged the day stating: “We all couldn’t do what we love to do without the viewers so thanks to them!”  She followed that up with a tweet filled with photos of herself and her co-stars throughout the years ,and some self-effacing humor stating: “Wasn’t going to post for YR anniversary, because I’m not one to put attention on me but no denying these people have made my life better. Thanks to crew & fans and my hope for Cricket is to smile the way she used to & chill whenever possible”

As viewers know, Lauralee is the daughter of Y&R creators, the late, great Bill Bell and his wife, Lee Phillip Bell.  We are sure Bill is smiling today for Lauralee and proud of this accomplishment.

GH’s Vinessa Antoine Lands Primetime Series Will Make Canadian TV History!

Fantastic news for General Hospital favorite, Vinessa Antoine (Jordan)! The talented actress had landed the leading role in the primetime Canadian series, Diggstown!

The legal drama is scheduled to air this fall.  In Diggstown, Antoine will play Marcie Diggs, a top corporate lawyer who decides to dedicate herself to a legal aid office in Dartmouth, Nova Scotia.

This casting news will make Vinessa a part of Canadian TV history as the first Black Canadian actress to star in a prime-time drama on legacy network television, CBC.

Antoine spoke to the Toronto Star about her starring role, “When I first read the script I was really attracted to the notion that she was a corporate lawyer and she believed in the system. And when that crashed for her, life nudged her to do something extraordinary. And because I’m a woman of color, so many things connected. She’s complex, not stereotypical, and that’s refreshing.”

However as suspected, and according to the Toronto Star: “General Hospital fans will not be happy to learn that Antoine, who has been with the show since 2014, will no longer be a series regular when she starts shooting Diggstown in August.”

So, excited to hear Vinessa has been cast in a leading primetime series?  Comment below!
