Daytime Emmy winner and All My Children fan favorite, Darnell Williams (Ex- Jessie)  is set to debut this coming Monday, February 20th on The Young and the Restless in his new role as Sarge! So just what is a “Sarge”? Will Williams be re-teamed with Debbi Morgan (Ex-Angie, AMC, now Harmony, Y&R?) For the answers to these questions and more that are probably circulating in the most avid of soap fans head, make sure to check out Williams new interview out today from TV Guide.  Here are a few excerpts below!

Darnell on what the heck is going with Sarge, a physical therapist on board to help Jack Abbott with his rehab! “He’s like an ex-Marine drill sergeant who bullies his patients into getting better.  We’ll be chipping away the layers to find out why. There’s something pretty big lurking beneath the surface, though I don’t yet know what that is. [Laughs] I don’t even know Sarge’s real name but I do know he’s an a–hole.”

Darnell on if he thinks the powers-that-be brought him to Y&R to immediately re-team him with Debbi Morgan:  “I’m not really sure how they’ll spread me throughout the canvas beyond the story with Peter. I did ask about [being paired with Morgan] and they said, “That’s not why we hired you. We want to stay away from that, though we might tease it a little bit.” I kind of hope they’ll keep us apart for a while. I love Debbi, but it seems too easy to go that route. “

Darnell on how come Lindsay Hartley had tweeted that he accepted a deal with Prospect Park’s then proposed online version of AMC: “There was no actual deal. We had come to an agreement but there was no contract per se. I was just so glad the Y&R offer came along. I had just purchased a house in the [California] desert which I’ve given myself a year to make habitable. I have this inner interior designer trying to get out! I feel blessed to be working, especially in today’s economy. ”

I wish ABC would have kept All My Children on the air but Darnell Williams character on Young and the Restless seems to totally different then his character when he was on All My Children

I sure hope they don’t do a Harmony/Sarge pairing all I will see is Angie/Jesse. (Right now I’m watching a very spoiled “Laura” everyday)

Chloe, and of course Jill, are in need of love interests but I’m thinking Ashley might be a love match. I’m more curious to see those two in a scene than one with Harmony.

Good luck. I love Darnell, but the current Bells who run Y&R and B&B like to stunt cast and then don’t know what to do with these great actors when they have them. Y&R needs to get back to its core characters and stories that made it once great.

Thanks again for another great report, Michael! I especially liked reading the last paragraph wherein Darnell talked about how happy the Y&R job came along and how grateful he is to be working. It’s just that little bit that shows he is human like the rest of us (not that I ever doubted it). I guess I mean it just shows that they have struggles too. When I think of “Sarge” being “Jack’s” PT, it makes me think of Rocky and Apollo Creed. I would love to see Sarge whip Jack into shape and run him right out of that… Read more »

Once again, MAB is just trying to gain viewers. The Y&R is too packed. She knew we’d want a Jesse/Angie of Y&R and teasing us for it? She knows that’s going to piss us off even more.

When are we firing her?

i am thrilled to death that darnell will be back on my screen – not being paired with debbie morgan will give everyone a chance to see them both shine seperately – both are very talented & awesome in their own right…

I loved them as Angie and Jessie and they are Best friends in real life. I was SO excited to see them in a scene together and wanted them to be Romantic eventually. Then Harmony got mad at Sarge and it all went to hell. I was so upset to see Harmony with that other guy and not Sarge…I felt like they were mean to tease us. But now that I read that though they love each other, they would not want to be paired romantically on the show….at least not right away…I guess I feel better about it….Still….I keep… Read more »

Certainly they are trying to gain viewers Scott. Ratings are what keeps shows on the air. Do you think the network’s bills get paid by some rich uncle ? The bottom line here is that Y&R landed three highly regarded actors/actresses from AMC. That’s obviously going to pull in viewers, and if the these fine actors/actress are given quality storylines to work with, it will up the quality of the show, as well as its ratings. I had actually stopped watching Y&R for like a year, and was watching AMC exculsively. Then when AMC ended, i was watching any soaps… Read more »

Dancing with the Stars

Chrishell Stause Has Taken Steps Towards Motherhood

Former soap opera star, Chrishell Stause, who is current appearing on the reality series Selling Sunset and the the new season of ABC’s Dancing with the Stars, shared some personal news with PEOPLE that she hopes to start a family

In the exclusive, Stause shares, “I have taken the steps to freeze my eggs.”  Adding,  “I definitely had a different idea for where I would be at this age and stage in my life.  There’s a family aspect that I’m missing that I hope is still a possibility for me.”

Of course, Stause is still pretty fresh off her shocking marriage break-up in November of 2019 with This is Us star, Justin Hartley.  But because of that she wants to take the pressure off of herself and a potential life partner in terms of a time-frame to bring kids into the world.

Meanwhile, Stause continues to prepare each week for ballroom dance competition on Dancing with the Stars with pro partner, Gleb Savchenko

She admitted that she was actually getting ready to freeze her eggs when she joined the cast for season 29 of DWTS.  “I was in the middle of the process when DWTS approached me. So for the first weeks of rehearsal, I was giving myself daily hormone shots while learning the tango, and the procedure was done a few days before the premiere of the show.”

So, what do you think about Chrishell’s plans to become a mom when she is ready?  Are you rooting her on Dancing with the Stars? Comment below.

Nancy Lee Grahn Kicks-Off Her 25th Year as General Hospital’s Alexis; Thanks Fans & Shares: “What a Ride”

She’s one of the best of the best!  And on Saturday, Nancy Lee Grahn acknowledged the start of her 25th year as Alexis Davis on ABC’s General Hospital. 

Nancy, who daytime fans first loved on One Life to Live and then Santa Barbara, came to Port Charles and quickly became one of its leading mainstays.

On Twitter, marking the occasion, Nancy thanked her fans with this: “Wow! I start my 25th year on  @generalhospital  today. What a ride. It’s been one of my greatest pleasures to be connected to & supported by such a beautiful, loving, loyal #gh audience. We are and have always been in this together. I hope you can feel my most sincere virtual hug.”

Currently in story, Alexis just lost the new love of her life Neil and on Friday’s episode of GH, Alexis was blamed for his death by Neil’s brother when she tried to attend his memorial service.  Later, she landed at the Floating Rib with Valentin – but when he got into it with Ned and stepped outside, Alexis ordered a drink.  Not a good sign for this recovering alcoholic, and all this came on the heels of Alexis learning she has osteoporosis.

Through the years, story after story, beat after beat, we are lucky to have Nancy on our screens with her consistently riveting and honest performances.

What has been your favorite Alexis storyline through the years?  And … make sure to wish Nancy a ‘happy 25th’ via the comment section below.
