Cynthia Watros Makes Her Y&R Debut! What Were Your First Impressions?

On Friday’s episode of The Young and the Restless, Daytime Emmy winner Cynthia Watros made her debut in the role of Kelly.   In her first scenes, Kelly was already telling her emotional story of how she lost her son, Sam to a grieving support group of other mother and father’s who have lost their children, and are trying to come to terms with it, or finding ways to deal with the tragedy.

Watros as Kelly continues to tell her story, where we learn more about the tragic that the death of her son, who happens to have been the same age as Billy’s daughter Delia when she was killed.  Billy (Billy Miller) and Victoria (Amelia Heinle) have joined the support group to try to figure out what they can do in their own lives to cope with their horrible loss.   Victoria recounts the story of the fateful night that Delia was killed by a hit and run driver to the group and the guilt they both feel.

Kelly later reveals that she and her husband divorced two months ago, because with no one else to blame for the death of Sam, they blamed each other and their marriage went downhill. In these first scenes, it reminded us of just how great an actress Watros is! 

Now the questions are:  Is there more to be revealed in Kelly’ story?  Is their an ulterior motive here?  Will Kelly and Billy form a “friendship”?   Is Kelly just a grieving mother searching for answers of how to move on with her life?  Weigh-in!

It’s good to see her back on television.

In one scene, Cynthia Watros moved me more than any of the Y&R regulars have all year, including Steve Burton’s many scenes remembering the war. Talk about talent, when an actress can come in and hook you right from the first moment!

Oh, Beacon! I think you’re my new favorite person in the world! 🙂

Goes without saying, I agree. As much I detest what show-killing witch Jill Farren Phelps and her bloated boy toy Steve Burton have done to this show, I still sat through it just to watch one of the world’s best actors show me her mad acting skills.

God Bless CYNTHAI WATROS!!!

two soap fodders if you will:

1. I LOVED HER ON Guiding Light…. Oh, it was maddening.. how much I wanted Annie to WIN BIG… get Josh… and stick it to Reva. OH!!!! The heavens would have shook – hell would have trembled

she ACTS everything

so much love to Cynthia Watros

2. she deserved that Emmy…. I just wish sometimes… that it would have been Eileen Davidson… for DAYS that year…

Wow… two powerhouses

I was reminded on Friday how compelling Cynthia Watros is in her work. It’s as if she was born to do high-drama acting. She draws the audience right in and makes them feel. I’m very glad Y&R chose to use her in a role like Kelly’s. Let’s see where it goes!

high – 5.

excellent read.

Y&R has something here…. BIG time potential to step up to the plate….

offer this lady: Cynthia Watros – your rainy day money – your savings – your cache

stand in line – wait in the wings – Kelly’s ON

Now that Stitch is a permanent character I thought “Annie” might his wife Jenna he mentioned and his son Max was the son “Annie” mentioned dying. It would easy enough to write a back story to explain why Stitch didn’t tell Dylan his son was dead and his marriage fell apart. Just a thought.

ohh gawd! just another person to watch grieve and cry and put her dark emotions on me,
The death the funeral and a week of grieving would have been enough, this grieving story is overkill .
Anyways Kelly , and her grief and suffering, will take time away from Chelsea and her nagging and repeating the same lines over and over like a parrot, and that will be good 🙂
Looking forward to see Cynthia Watros as Kelly ..

“…will take time away from Chelsea and her nagging and repeating the same lines over and over:

yes… i’ll parrot this. Whew!

it’s a pity that Chelsea doesn’t know what to do – let alone understand… What Adam is going through… to her credit… perhaps Adam should share his FEAR with… but…. it’s Sharon whom, he should be reeling with…

so… I don’t invest much with the fallout… aside from remaining vigilant for Adam… and vigilant that Y&R won’t be complete, till: Adam and Sharon are re-united and in power!

I am sure Kelly and Billy will have a torid affair. Meanwhile, Victoria will put all her energies back into Newman/Chancellor.

Patrick
Guest

I truly hope not…. for ALL the Billy and Victoria fans… who are fretfully.. waiting for this couple to LOVE each other wholly AGAIN.

depending on how long the story arch is going…

Cynthia Watros’ Kelly – could do a mad acting arc – steal the show – NUT UP

she has all the reason…

lost child
lost husband.. if in fact she knows Stitch

she could exact her revenge

Cynthia is one of my favorite actors of all time! She captivated Y&R fans from scene one. Perhaps JFP will do right by her and the fans for a change by providing a good story arc and keeping this amazing talent on screen. Welcome back Ms. Watros!

Cynthia Watros is an amazing actress, but her introduction — such as it was — did little to interest me in her character.

She should have been Nikki’s long lost cult baby, a trashy stripper with an axe to grind with her mama for giving her away all those years ago. THAT would have been a story worth watching.

Sometimes I would love to be a fly on the wall in these production meetings just to hear how and who comes up with ideas. “Okay gang. Let’s put on our thinking caps here. We need a blonde…who has lost a daughter…who has been badly damaged by it…who could possibly help Billy and Victoria with their grief.”. Hmmm….well in my way of thinking… they already have that character. Her name is Sharon. Oh wait….they have another character just like that. Her name is traci. Hold up…they have yet a third character named Ashley who fits that bill. I don’t care… Read more »

Ummmm…she wasn’t on that much on Friday, so I’m not quite gushing like the rest of the board. But it’ll be interesting to see where her short term role goes.

Both Miller and Heinle continue to both do some great work.

I’m going to say some things that I’m sure none of you will agree with, but here goes… I’m sorry, but I FF’d those group therapy scenes. As sad/angry as I am about the killing of Delia, the storyline has been dragging on far too long. How many times can ALL the characters, from Billy & Chloe to Adam & Chelsea to every other person on the show, go over and over and over the same conversation? I mean really, most of these characters never even shared a scene with Delia and yet they can’t stop talking about her? And… Read more »

‘The Talk’ Returns as Sheryl Underwood Shares the ‘Trauma’ She Feels Over Incident That Led to Sharon Osbourne’s Exit

CBS’ afternoon series The Talk finally returned to the air, following the departure of Sharon Osbourne and the tense moments that went down on the March 10th episode between her and Sheryl Underwood.

Monday afternoon, co-hosts: Sheryl Underwood, Elaine Welteroth, Amanda Kloots and Carrie Ann Inaba along with diversity and inclusion expert, Donald E. Grant, were on the episode.  Grant, served as the moderator as the women discussed what happened when Osbourne came at Underwood when defending Piers Morgan’s remarks about Meghan Markle, eventually prompting an extended internal investigation by CBS.

On today’s episode, Sheryl Underwood shared: “I didn’t want to escalate things with Sharon, because I thought I was having a conversation with a friend, but also, I knew I had to be an example for others to follow. I didn’t want to be perceived as that ‘angry Black woman’, and that really scared me. I didn’t want to be that and I wanted to remain calm and focused. It’s difficult to go back to that day because I just feel the trauma. I feel fearful, a little apprehensive.”

Elaine Welteroth added, “When you go back and watch what happened in that episode, you will see two Black women walking the same tightrope that Black women are walking every single day in the workplace.  As Sheryl said, we knew we had to stay composed in that situation, even in the face of someone who was A, not listening, and B, who went off the rails into disrespect when we were maintaining our respect within the context of this very complex, charged, emotional conversation.  There have been a lot of false narratives that have been spun in the aftermath of what happened on that episode…this is the first time that I have had the opportunity to speak. And I think it’s really important that we have the opportunity to say that the false accusations that are swirling in the press that frame Sheryl and I as some kind of, you know, people who attacked a woman on air, and were part of some sort of, you know, conspiracy, that is absolutely, categorically false.”

She later added, “I just want to acknowledge you, Sheryl, on air for how you handled the situation. I think it’s important for people to really know the strength and willpower it takes to maintain that kind of composure in that situation. And I think for me, I was just really entering that conversation with the hope of finding a common ground and I didn’t feel like I was heard.”

In addition, Underwood wanted to go on record stating that while she had received text messages from Osbourne, she hadn’t replied to them because she wasn’t sure she was supposed to during during an internal investigation. Osbourne had said that she sent texts to Underwood and had apologized for her actions.

Sheryl shared: “I have never been through something like this. I didn’t know whether you were supposed to communicate or not communicate.  I have not spoken to Sharon, I haven’t had a phone call from her, ” However, Underwood expressed that if a friend were to come up to her and greet her nicely, she would do that same, “When you’re friends with someone, you stay friends,” she said.

So, what did you think about the sentiments shared by Sheryl and Elaine during The Talk? Was this episode helpful in shining a lot on racism, and successful in dealing with what transpired on March 10th with Sharon Osbourne? Share your thoughts via the comment section below.

Lynn Herring Celebrates 35th Anniversary of Her General Hospital Debut; and ‘We Love Lucy’

Today, April 11th marks the 35th anniversary of the debut of Lynn Herring on General Hospital as Lucy Coe.  And wow, when you look at the road this character has gone on played to the hilt by Herring, it has been one entertaining ride for GH fans along the way.

Lucy started out as a mousy librarian, if you can believe that! And of course, she eventually showed all that she was a bombshell.  She then became quite the schemer and seductress.

Along the way, Lucy was married to Alan Quartermaine (Stuart Damon), was involved with Scott Baldwin (Kin Shriner), Kevin Collins (Jon Lindstrom) and other men in Port Charles.

 

At one point, Herring took the character of Lucy to the now defunct Port Charles where she stayed from 1997-2003,

But this one time gold-digger eventually became the champion of the GH Nurses’ Ball and helped raise awareness and funds for HIV/AIDS research. Now, year after year, the one thing you can always look forward to is Herring’s hilarious antics and sincerity in her star turn as the emcee of the annual fundraising event.

On Sunday, the GH tweeted posted: “Lucy Coe knows everything about everyone in Port Charles and we would be lost without her. Please help us congratulate TheLynnHerring on the 35th Anniversary of her #GH debut”. 

Lynn responded sharing: “Thank you! Have loved every @GeneralHospital  moment!”

Share your congratulations to Lynn via the comment section below, and let us know your favorite Lucy moment too!
