In a series of tweets on her Twitter account over the last 24 hours, Victoria Rowell (Ex-Drucilla Winters) was enthusiastic about the changes behind the scenes at Y&R and DAYS – the SONY shows – which had recently hired a black writer and director, something Rowell has been fighting and championing for along with the National Urban League.

Rowell went on to say in her tweets that she recently had some meetings with SONY that may bring Drucilla back to the canvas and hopefully on our screens again.

Victoria tweeted, “To now return to The Young & Restless would be sublime in every way.  I recently had 2 meetings at SONY so let’s pray and believe DRUCILLA will be cresting that Genoa City cliff any time now.”

With Debbi Morgan reportedly coming to Genoa City to mix it up with Kristoff S. John (Neil Winters), and if Victoria returned to the fold , there would be one mighty story going on, if the two actresses were to collide on-screen!

How awesome would that be if Debbi Morgan & Victoria Rowell were both to arrive to Genoa City on Y&R. I jut hope that this does come to fruition we’ve had false hope before so I don’t want to get over excited just yet.

I would love to see Victoria Rowell return to Y&R and pep up the Winters family. Their story is rather stagnet right now. I would like to see some sparks fly. If Debbie Morgan is coming on,too, you have two dynamite actresses to mix it up. Looking forward for this to occur…….

WOW…. HUGE news that there even in talks, given the very public dispalys of disdain for one another….! I truly hope that VR comes back to the show… I really miss the chemistry between her and La Stafford!! They had so many memorable scenes and were great foils for eachother! Looking forward to hearing more on this…! Thanks, Michael!

I just read on another blog we have actresses threatening to leave if she comes back. Well, I say open the door and let them leave. It is a job go to work read your lines and start acting like professionals! Years ago when EB & PB had a brawl on the set Bill Bell told them both to work it out or they would both be fired. As it should be you don’t have to like someone to work with them. The Winters need a shot in the arm but why she wants to come back is beyond me but if she can handle it I say Bring her on!

LOL, I having been waiting for Dru’s return for so long. and if Machelle
stafford does not see the personal benefit that she can have from Victoria Rowell’s return as Dru, then she is totally oblivious. Machelle should insist on Dru’s return and more of those firecracker scenes between the two of them. Those weren’t the often boring, humdrum scenes we are faced with these days, rofl.

She’s one of those actresses that might be a bit of a diva in real life(though I course don’t know), but she’s so good at portraying Dru, I don’t give a s***. I just want her on my screen again.

Damn let her come back. Lilly role sucks and she’s not a top of the list on the soaps. Phyllis hasn’t had a god role since the shelia scene. Peter sucks too. These people can be replaced.. Victor nikii katherine etc are al the best. Let them quit. I dnt hink they would they are all just talking. They know dru is the best and they don’t want to see her take their thunder. Do what’s best for the show in my opinion. its not personal its business always. I love dru and I think she’s awesome. The show needs some spice and I think she could get the ratings up. The show was great. I go to you tube and watch the old episodes because today episodes are sooooooo boring.. bring the old young and the restless back pleaseeeeeeee.

Let’s face it none of the soap operas on today have a strong African-American storyline, and Maria Bell will not write for them on Y&R I will quarantee you Debbie Morgans character will be involved with the character of Tucker! Does anyone really think Lily could be Malcom’s daughter? She is slowly ruining this show and the actors on it know it. They are just afraid they will be out of a job!! Kristoff St.John has as much said so!

Vinessa Antoine Reveals She And General Hospital Have Parted Ways; After Landing Primetime Series Lead

After the fantastic bit of casting news for actress Vinessa Antoine  (Jordan Ashford) over the weekend, today, via her social media accounts, Vinessa has addressed her future with General Hospital.

As viewers know, Vinessa has been cast as the drama series lead in the new CBC production of Diggstown, and it is groundbreaking making her the first black actress to star in a series on the legendary Canadian broadcasting network,   Originally it was presumed that Antoine would go recurring on GH, while she was away filming, but that is not the case as she revealed in her heartfelt message today.  She and GH have mutually parted ways.

Vinessa’s statement: “There are so many people that God put into place who are directly and indirectly responsible for my time at General Hospital.  You know who you are. I thank you. I came into this world as an artist. My job is to create and inspire. I hope that I did that a little in playing #JordanAshford.

I believe that I have taken her as far as I can.  To clarify, as negotiations for #Diggstown were underway, although I am open to stay and play in Port Charles, I was told by my reps that GeneralHospital felt that my character would be off the canvas for too long for me to continue playing her.

With that, we decided to mutually part ways.  It’s time to make room for more women of color in prominent roles on television. I’m grateful to assist in that by starting this new chapter in my journey. I hope you’ll all come along. I feel blessed. Be well. xo”

An ABC rep told Soap Opera Digest that the role of Jordan is being recast.

So what do you think of Vinessa leaving GH for good? Share your thoughts via the comment section below and let’s wish her much success!

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!
