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!!!

I know, right?

pop the cork… it’s bubbly time….

she entrances – she emotes unlike no other. perfect descrip… “mad acting SKILLS” she layers upon layers…

she’s a challenge

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!

Patrick

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.

My mistake– the character is Kelly not Annie– where I got Annie from don’t know– but I meant Kelly

I hope she stays on canvas. She is an amazing actress and I have missed watching her on the television

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 ..

Patrick

“…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
Patrick

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

George

I hope they write a decent storyline for her!

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!

“don’t you stand back with baited breath… and let this juggernaut powerhouse woman reel”

yikes! she’s realing on OUR screens

I’ll take her any way I can get some

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.

Johnny

Lol. I love your wordage…”trashy stripper with an axe to grind”. Lol. Yes that could have been a hoot.

Johnny

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 which big name Emmy winning star they hire. When the roles are ill conceived and poorly thought out it won’t work. Many really big popular stars have been epic fails on a new show if the character is not rooted into the show by connections to existing characters.

Yes…Watros is talented. Do I give two hoots about her character or her grief? I don’t even give one hoot. Do I want broken and damaged Billy to have an affair with a broken and damaged woman thereby ruining his marriage? No…I do NOT want a repeat of the Nick/Phyllis debacle of yesteryear.

The fans..the ones WATCHING…seem to know what they want…because in every forum we are asking for the same things. Well written stories for characters we care about. More romance. Less violence. No more killing kids. Some happy couples. It just amazes me that the people who get paid to produce these shows continue to do exactly the opposite of what fans want. And then they honestly wonder why ratings are not what they used to be.

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 why the hell is Victor involved in this story at all? What business does he have hiring someone to find the driver? He doesn’t give a rats ass about Billy, so why does he care about HIS kid?
The only three people that should really still be tormented at this point are Billy, Chloe and Adam and rightfully so, but for different reasons.

As su0000 said, “The death, the funeral, and a week of grieving would have been enough, this grieving story is overkill.”
I have to agree.

Anyway, re: Cynthia Watros, she is an excellent actress, but we do NOT need another character on the show unless they are going to get rid of some of the superfluous characters already there. I’m sure she’s there for a short arc and will leave soon since I’m also sure she’s very expensive.

I just thought of something…maybe they’re dragging this storyline out because Billy is in contract negotiations and this could lead up to his exit story, if he doesn’t re-sign.

I’m tired of all the drabness and unhappiness on Y&R. Don’t really care to sit through the support group meetings.

Karla Mosley Back To Work At B&B; Hunter Tylo On The Way Too?

Fans of The Bold and the Beautiful this week got some fun intel from two sources, the actresses themselves! First, Karla Mosley has returned to taping all-new episodes of the CBS daytime drama series, following her maternity leave.

That means Maya Avant will be back in action.. In an Instagram post holding a script from the series, she noted, “Back to work!!!! Having all the feels.”

Mosley gave birth in August to her daughter, Aurora Imani.   Maya was last seen on the canvas in that month as well.  No word yet if Maya’s return will also bring with it Rick Forrester (Jacob Young) who went on recurring status with the show and is off doing other projects.

In other news, looks like fan favorite Hunter Tylo (Taylor) may be back on Bold, in time for the holidays, if her tweets are any indication of that.  Having a twitter exchange with fans of the series, one who seemed disgruntled again, Tylo posted this!

This would indicate Tylo is on her way back for holiday episodes and maybe more of the soap as Taylor!  She also tweeted on the Bill, Ridge, Katie custody drama and shenanigans, “Think I need to go to go straighten these people out?”.  The thread on Hunter’s twitter page continued with a “Stay Tuned” GIF and more.

So, excited to see Maya and Taylor back on the canvas at The Bold and the Beautiful? What would you like to see happen for the characters in story? Comment below.

Y&R’s Tracy E. Bregman Shares Heartbreak Of Losing Her Home In Southern California Wildfires On ‘The Talk’

The wildfires continue to leave destruction in their path in Southern California as hundreds of thousands in Southern California have had to leave their homes behind.  Many are finding nothing to come back to after what is now called the Woolsey Fire burned down their beloved homes.

One of those victims who lost her home over the weekend to the fires is The Young and the Restless, Tracey E. Bregman (Lauren). She is among other celebrities such as: Miley Cyrus, Gerard Butler, and Neil Young whose houses in the Malibu area were destroyed.

Bregman made a guest appearance on today’s episode of The Talk, revealing what happened when she found her house had been burned to the ground in a heartbreaking moment.

The Daytime Emmy-winner shared: “It’s been surreal.  It’s kind of hard to wrap your mind around … it’s hard to believe all the family celebrations and everything that I had in there is gone.  I woke up thinking, I actually don’t have anything from my past. I have no notes, or cards, or anything like that. But like Miley Cyrus said, I got my kids out, my animals out, we’re alive.”

Tracey added, “This is my third evacuation since I moved there in 2004.  I got my dog, I was able to pack a bag … grab my Emmy, but my fathers NAACP award did not make it out, and he passed away a year and a half ago, so I’m missing that.  I honestly don’t know where to live, what to do. Luckily, I just bought a little place in Nashville, and I think my whole family, we’re going to spend Thanksgiving, actually with my friends Todd and Julie Chrisley, they invited us.”

Eileen Davidson (Ex-Ashley, Y&R) also reported via social media that she is safe but there eas some damage to her home: “After living for 24 hours thinking we lost our house completely we found out yesterday that we only lost the yard around our house. Sweating it out for the next 48 hours and praying for everybody involved in this devastating and horrific fire. Love to all of you.”

At least 370 structures have been destroyed and two people have died in the catastrophic blaze, which has now spread to 92,000 acres as of Monday.

Celebrities such as: Lady Gaga, Kim Kardashian West and Alyssa Milano fled their houses over the weekend to escape the flames and winds.
