Went and looked up ages he is 27 CK is 29 also other pictures show him to be more mature looking will see just think Lilly and Cane need some pot stirring if they are going to continue on the show.

Relax, Kay. No one said he/she did not like it….we are discussing our feelings. Opining. Isn’t that the point? I would never stop watching, no matter what. Smile.
How did your volunteering go? It is fulfilling is it not? Does the body, mind and soul good.
Later, Kay.

I agree, Timmmy. Revolving door. Dylan isn’t even out yet, and already a new character is brough in.
Something will happen to Dylan– or so everyone will think.
As I said, the door is left open for an eventual Dylan return; whenever.

Stop it she has not fired anybody SB chose to leave probably he did not get the same cushy contract the dragon lady provided now relax take a deep breath give them a chance they have ten years of crap they have to sweep up! If actors can’t be patient then exit left she will get it straightened out it is not about YOU it is about the show

Y&R has always been slow character driven this is what she is getting back to if you do not like it for god sakes then turn it off I am thrilled that all of these characters are becoming themselves again is it slow hell yes but I am willing to sit by and watch them weave their magic! This is the writer who wrote Lauren being buried alive Cassie’s death etc etc ! Give her time

If they wanted to bring in a “photographer with serious swagger,” why didn’t they just bring back Malcolm? Even if Shemar Moore wasn’t available, they could recast the character as he already has deeply established roots to the canvas, and could be involved in both the Brash & Sassy story and Winters family drama.

That would have been a perfect idea, since I thought the new writers were trying to incorporate some past cast members into the new stories

Great looking young man but that makes the third young new male character. GC needs some young women to come to town.
That cute computer nerd cannot be following Ashley around like a love struck puppy forever–give him a girl about his age!!

What about the female computer nerd that had the hots for Kevin, who was last seen working for Victor? They would have a lot in commen. She might be little pushy compared to his shyness, but it might be worth as shot

Natalie. Yes….whatever happened her her? It was like…poof–gone.

You’re talking about Natalie. I like the idea you just mentioned but to add some icing to this cake, how about if we have him somehow connected to Hillary? Just another reason for her to keep on being bitchy? That’s when Hillary works best for me!!!

Natalie would be terrific paired with Ravi. I love Ravi, do not want him paired with Ashley.

Sharon and Victor, my friend, was even worse. He is ancient compared to Sharon….HOW, I ask??

Celia
Guest
Celia

Hi, Rhonda,
I agree…NO ASHLEY. She’s old enough to be his mother. We’re not talking about about a few years, here. We’re talking decades. He’s 26. Thirty years!!!!!! Gross.
I like Ravi myself….. easy-going, good-looking guy. He is merely infatuated with Ashley. Maybe he has Mommy issues.
As a nerd, myself, LOL, I get him. He and Natalie would be perfect. But, I do not trust her.

Nothing against Ashley, because I have always loved her but putting them together would put them in the same gross factor as when Sharon slept with Victor. EEEWWW

why wasnt tyler brought back?
redaric had a front burner story with chrisal years back and the two were hot together
would have been fun to interact lily and cane and possibly stir things up even briefly
tyler was a photographer if i remember correctly and cane wasnt a fan..wld ve been perfect
tylers older sis leslie pops into genoa city once in a while ..it would be great to have tyler return every so often too…even to run into abby or mariah, lots of unfinished business

I completely forgot about Tyler, but that’s a good idea! I wasn’t much of a fan of the Michaelson family, mainly because their backstory had no connections to GC and seemed to be mostly an afterthought filler story, but Tyler dropped off the canvas with no explanation, and could have easily been reincorporated into the story.

Abby is single, unless they put him with Victoria. They love to put them young men with older ladies.

he will obviously turn out to be adopted and looking for his birth mom, who will turn out to be…wait for it….Drucilla….she had given birth to him before she made her appearance in Genoa City….he and Lily will bond and come to realization they are related….it will also turn out he was an adopted heir to Constance Bingham (Adam’s faux mom) and Hilary will jump him because he would be another billionaire to get her hooks into….thus creating conflict with him and Devon…..or maybe he’ll be a gay character and have a hot romance with Noah Newman….Noah hasn’t had any… Read more »

WOW, Scott!!!!! I love the way you think. What a good storyline that would make. Drucilla’s son. That’s a good seed to plant in the writers’ minds. Let’s hope it yields some fruit. One never knows….

Isn’t this character a man from Neil’s daughter past? Hoping it will be a good triangle. 🙂

That’s a fantastic premise, as well, Nik.

He could , aslso, be Hilary’s brother? Or a new beau, considering the fact that as soon as Devon snaps out of it, he will drop her in a blink.
I think TPTB are paving the way for Jack and Hilary to get romantically involved. I have seen this coming for a while.

After six days of almost unbelievable emotional swings, I am left with a deep, wordless sadness. Hopefully my mom is free from pain and beginning to explore what I like to imagine as her eternal freedom. Over those six days, thousands of friends, family, and fans made their hearts known to me. I am grateful for their love, as I am for the support of my Dad, Coley, and my stepmom Alexi who continue to be my rock during this time. Rest In Peace Mom, I love you.”

The talented actress is best-known to soap opera fans for her Daytime Emmy-winning dual roles as twins, Vicky and Marley Hudson on Another World.  She had two sons, Homer with her ex Coley Laffoon and Atlas, 13, with actor James Tupper.

Anne Heche ‘Not Expected to Survive’; Suffered Severe Brain Injury From Fiery Crash

In just heartbreaking news, Daytime Emmy-winner, Anne Heche (Ex-Vicky/Marley, Another World), is not expected to survive after days in the hospital following being severely burned in a fiery car crash when her vehicle struck a home in Mar Vista, California last Friday.

According to family and friends of the motion picture and television star in a statement, “Unfortunately, due to her accident, Anne Heche suffered a severe anoxic brain injury and remains in a coma, in critical condition. She is not expected to survive. It has long been her choice to donate her organs and she is being kept on life support to determine if any are viable.”  Deadline notes, the actress will be taken off life-support.

The statement went on to say, “We want to thank everyone for their kind wishes and prayers for Anne’s recovery and thank the dedicated staff and wonderful nurses that cared for Anne at the Grossman Burn Center at West Hills hospital.  More than her extraordinary talent, she saw spreading kindness and joy as her life’s work — especially moving the needle for acceptance of who you love. She will be remembered for her courageous honesty and dearly missed for her light.”

There are plans for Heche to get an Honor Walk, which is a hero’s goodbye donor patients receive by hospital staff as they are wheeled into the operating room in their final journey.

Heche will be featured on Lifetime’s Girl in Room 13, set to premiere this fall in September. Lifetime’s Executive VP  and head of programming, Amy Winter, revealed earlier this week at the TCA press tour, “As many of you know, Anne remains in critical condition and all of us here at Lifetime are deeply concerned for her and everyone affected. This project is important to Anne, along with each and every one of us. We all sought to make a film that would bring attention to this appalling issue of human sex trafficking.”

In addition, TMZ had reported that following toxicology reports, Cocaine was found in Heche’s system following the crash. They also found fentanyl. However,  sources say fentanyl can often be used as a pain medication in hospitals, so there is no confirmation that it was in Anne’s system at the time of the crash.

Anne was an amazing actress with such a tortured life.  We send thoughts and prayers to all her loved ones during this difficult time.  Share your thoughts on the latest update on Anne in the comment section below.
