Courtney Hope Coming to The Young and the Restless

The Bold and the Beautiful’s loss will be The Young and the Restless’ gain.   After a photo surfaced of Courtney Hope wearing and holding some Y&R swag on her Instagram post, the actress expressed: “This seems like a good fit.”   It left fans wondering just what was going on with the sort of cryptic message.

Hope recently was let-go at B&B when she was written-off the show again, after delivering some very powerful performances in her last storyline.

As it turns out, and according to Daytime Confidential  confirmation was made by the Y&R publicity department, and it is true that Hope will soon be in Genoa City.

As for what character, Hope will play and when she might hit the airwaves is yet to be known.

Now the question is: Will Courtney resurrect her role as Sally Spectra in Genoa City… or will she play a new character?

Let us know who you hope Courtney will be playing on Y&R when she turns up on the CBS Daytime drama series via the comment section below.

Colour me surprised by this casting. There are definitely possibilities for who she could be playing, and while I am interested, I am concerned she is at the hands of Anthony Morina and Josh Griffith. My one hope is that she is used for her talent, because she has been wasted on The Bold and the Beautiful since her debut.

I’m guessing Phyllis is suddenly going to remember she had a baby she put up for adoption years ago and that daughter is coming to Genoa City to ruin her life and steal her man.

This is a GREAT idea!!! Please indulge me for a moment as I’m feeling creative…………… When Phyllis showed up, she was hellbent on landing Danny and used her pregnancy to snag him. I’ve always thought there was some plot potential in Phyllis’ backstory (beyond the lame story we got with Avery/Phyllis about the father ripping folks off). Danny was a well-known singer when Phyllis set her sights on him. It could be written that young Phyllis had a thing for musicians and, prior to Danny, the college-aged Phyllis was madly in love with another musician. Lydia Summers, Phyllis mother (now… Read more »

I’d love to see them bring back Avery, but only if Jessica Collins (I think that is her name) played the part. I mean, come ON, Nick…if you’re doing relationship re-treads, at least Avery can cook, plus she was the best one for Nick, out of the Sharon, Phyllis, Chelsea, Avery merry-go-round.

Too bad Gina Tognon is gone. They could have been a mother/daughter duo.

I agree. I’ve always hated Phyllis and am not fond of the actress M.S either.
Was so glad when she left Y&R only to have her turn up on GH. Every time Nick gets back together with her, I lose respect for him. I record my shows, so I F.F any scene she’s in, unless I need to know what she’s up to, or should I say who? She sure was after Chance there for awhile but he was interested in Abby.

I kinda wish she was playing Sally on Y&R. I hope it’s a good character and story. She is talented and I like her.

How long must we wait to see Courtney Hope on Young and Restless. She was replaced with Flo on BB . I can not stand Flo with Wyatt. He was much more interesting and fun with Sally . I wish they would let Courtney continue to be Sally. Why no hints on when.. when..will we see her?

Me Too Stephanie B. Smith. I Love Courtney Hope as Sally Spectra. I can’t Stand Phyllis Summers. She needs to Leave Sally Alone

I hope she comes over as Sally Spectra II. Since Lauren Fenmore was close with the original Sally Spectra, there is a back story in place.

If she isn’t Sally, then maybe she could be a recast Daisy Carter. That would be fun to watch so we could find out what happened to Daisy after she was sprung from the hospital.

I love this fiery red head! They dumped her for that blonde bimbo on B&B, which was terrible. Between that and some other characters, I just quit watching. I just hope they don’t pair her up with Theo, ug. He seems enamored of Lola and Kyle seems sincerely in love with Summer, so there aren’t any other men of Courtney’s age group. I hope they would not try another young gal with old Jack again. The last time was a catastrophe.

Like what little I’ve seen of her work. Smart to scoop her up. Now let’s hope they know what to do with her talent.

I really enjoy this actress’s work. Love how she is able to go deep and make me twist and turn while I am watching her. She is one to watch beyond soaps.

Just throwing this out there. Sally was a designer on B&B so maybe she will interact with Chelsea if she is in anyway serious about getting back to her business. Boy, she really snowed Theo today but Billy may be another story. I also think where she put that bug on the lamp was a bad choice. A cleaning crew would find it right away if they touched it while dusting or whatever.

Mike Richards Out as EP of ‘Jeopardy!’ and ‘Wheel of Fortune’

What has become of the beloved game show treasure Jeopardy!, since the death of its iconic Alex Trebek, will surely at some point be made into a movie with backstage drama galore and breaking headlines news all along the way.

Now comes an official statement from Sony Pictures Television that they have now let-go of Mike Richards from his duties as executive producer of both Jeopardy! and Wheel of Fortune.

This comes after Richards controversial choice as the new syndicated host amid allegations, lawsuits and what seemed to be the final straw, The Ringer’s report and findings of insensitive and sexist comments made by Richards on The Randumb Show, a podcast he hosted in 2013 and 2014.

Suzanne Prete, EVP, Business and Strategy, Wheel of Fortune and Jeopardy!, sent out an internal note to the staff on both shows this morning. The content included that Richards would depart his EP roles effective immediately and Embassy Row’s Michael Davies stepping in to do the job on an interim basis.

According to Deadline, the note read as follows:

Dear Team,

I’m writing to let you know that Mike will no longer be serving as EP of Wheel and Jeopardy! effective immediately.  We had hoped that when Mike stepped down from the host position at Jeopardy! it would have minimized the disruption and internal difficulties we have all experienced these last few weeks. That clearly has not happened.  Michael Davies from Embassy Row has agreed to help with production on an interim basis until further notice. Michael and I will work together with all of you in the weeks ahead to ensure that production remains on schedule and we do not miss a beat as we head into the new season.

I know this has been a challenging time for the entire team, and I want to thank you all for your cooperation and professionalism over these last few weeks. As Ravi mentioned last week, I will be more involved in the day-to-day on our shows moving forward and I am looking forward to working closely with all of you.  Please don’t hesitate to reach out if you need anything. 

So, what do you think of all the twists and turns that have now led to Richards ousting as host and his EP duties on two game show? Comment below.
