I want real Mac, Ashley Bashioum!!!
I think she’s a doctor now, but I would have been so excited to see her onscreen again.

Mac was Katharine’s granddaughter? What were her big stories?

She was apart of the “Glo by Jabot” storyline and the teen scene with JT, Raul, etc. And then her return in 2008 was a major happening at the time, despite the awful writing.

Hi, Mark Y, Other than Michelle Stafford ( Phyllis) , Ashley Bashioum was my favorite actress on Y&R….it was a time of ‘growing up’ for me…..I did grow up watching this show, LOL. Mac played an important role, not only as Katherine’s granddaughter, but also in the way the found each other. Mac’s dad was, actually, the apple of Katherine’s eye…but, was some kind of missionary and only visited GC once in a blue moon. Trust me, read up on the back-history….you won’t regret it. Mac was also involved with Billy….truly loved each other, but through lies and misconceptions, Katherine… Read more »

Mac fell in love with Billy Abbott played by David Tom at the time. They eventually married but divorced when they realized that Mac and Billy were blood relatives through Katherine’s son Brock.

@Cathy.
Thanks, Cathy….you have a better recollection than I, LOL.
I had forgotten Billy and Mac were once married. Supposedly, at the time, Brock and Jill were half siblings…..until they were not, LOL.

I did read the article Scott. I understand it’s fir the anniversary of the show. But what is happening in story to bring at least six former characters back is screen? A funeral? A wedding?

Scott (ATWT Fan)

That has yet to be divulged, likely due to keeping spoilers out of the press. But, based on social media, it seems to be some kind of celebration of sorts.

3. Kelly Kruger…NO THANK YOU!!!!!

5. Most of all, BRING TRICIA CAST (Nina) BACK for the celebration!!!!!

Later.

Agree with your list and comments, Jay…
Brittany? Bad girl, LOL….nasty, nasty, meanie…DOUBLE LOL.
Kruger? Nah….I am assuming Mac is coming to cause a little stir for JT and Victoria?….not in a bad way, since Mac was always a good person. I only wish it could have been Ashley ( the original).
You know what would please me more than anything, Jay?….if some kind of clause/glitch was found in Katherine’s will. Devon should have really gotten one dollar, not all those other zeros attached to it.
Mac should have been the heiress.
Later, my friend.

I’m with you, Celia! Mac should have inherited it all!

@Ron. Hey, Ron, Even after all this time, the fact that Katherine left all that money to Devon, still rankles and festers. ….especially because Katherine had legally adopted Mac, so to keep Amanda’s ( Mac’s mother) rapacious hands from Mac. I guess it’s because I never understood the reasoning behind it. Katherine was head over heals ‘in adoration’ with Mac. The only thing with which I can reconcile myself is the fact that Katherine felt guilty for having given her son Tucker away? And, she made amends by endowing Devon with the bulk of her fortune? Perhaps, my feeling this… Read more »

You know what would really please me, Jay? ….for Mac to take up with Billy—reacquaint themselves with what they once had. Won’t that collapse Phyllis’ house of sticks!….a huff and a puff, that’s all it’ll take.

Where is Ashley Bashioum??? She was the REAL Mackenzie that everyone loved. Sorry but Kelly Kruger was awful. Never liked her or Clementine Ford.

They should’ve called up Ashley Bashioum. And if Ashley wasn’t available, Rachel Kimsey for second choice.

Scott (ATWT Fan)

Kruger was likely called in because of her real-life relationship with Darin Brooks, who is Wyatt on The Bold and the Beautiful. She is a fine actress and will do great in the role once again!

I’m loving this right now. So many familiar faces and the characters that they once portrayed. It’s fantastic. I get the upset about Kelly Kruger being Mackenzie, however, she was my favourite actress in the role, despite my dislike for the role of Mackenzie as a whole. This is going to be a beautiful celebration and I’m hoping that some of these returns are more than guest spots, and might lead to long-term returning stories. Thank you, Mal Young, for doing this for us! I also find it laughable that **some** fans are claiming these recently-announced returned characters aren’t “important”… Read more »

This makes me wonder if indeed JT is dying? They all came back for a funeral? I hope one of them asks Billy why he is sleeping with the chaperone of Glow by Jabot Ms. Phyllis !

Scott (ATWT Fan)

It definitely is not for a funeral, that’s for certain.

HaHa…too funny, Kay….Billy should be twenty-five, yes? Phyllis should be in her early fifties…Daniel was born when she was working for a DNA lab in NYC. She was all about getting and trapping rock star Danny Romalotti….and she did. She lied about Daniel’s paternity and sank her claws and fangs into him.
Chronologically, the ages are all WRONG!! Phyllis stopped aging untill Billy caught up to her. LOL.
So, yeah….Phyllis was Billy’s, Mac’s, Brittany’s, Colleen’s etc. chaperon at most events. Ha!

Too bad they don’t bring back Tom Bierdz for a day or two as Phillip Chancellor II,and even the guy who played his son (and left the show to go into the militar). Phillip II could come back from Australia and reconnect in a bro-pal way with Cane, and perhaps give him some advice and support. Also we learn that he and Nina have become great friends, that she visits him frequently down under and has even written a book set in Australia (perhaps loosely resembling Phillip II”s story and how he and Cane became friends there).

OLTL Alum Arlene Dahl Dead At 96, Son Lorenzo Lamas Shares: “She Was The Most Positive Influence In My Life”

Another loss for the soap world and its extended family.  Arlene Dahl, who had a notable career in film and television, and who appeared on both One Life to Live and All My Children, has passed away at the age of 96.

Her son, former Falcon Crest and The Bold and the Beautiful star, Lorenzo Lamas (Ex-Lance and Ex-Hector, respectively), shared the news via his Facebook page: “Mom passed away this morning in New York. She was the most positive influence on my life. I will remember her laughter, her joy, her dignity as she navigated the challenges that she faced. Never an ill word about anyone crossed her lips. Her ability to forgive left me speechless at times. She truly was a force of nature and as we got closer in my adult life, I leaned on her more and more as my life counselor and the person I knew that lived and loved to the fullest. My sympathies go to her loving husband @marcrosennyc who, for the last 37 years, made her life so wonderful and joyous. Love you mom forever ♥️ #ArleneDahl #Moviestar #legend #mom #RIP”

Guiding Light’s Robert Newman Pays Tribute to the Brilliance of Lisa Brown

On Sunday, longtime Guiding Light mainstay, Robert Newman (Ex-Josh Lewis), shared a heartfelt message on his Facebook page on the death of his former co-star, Lisa Brown (Ex-Nola Reardon).

As previously reported, Brown passed away earlier this week at the age of 67 from cancer. She portrayed the beloved role of Nola on the CBS soap opera from 1980-1985 and was front and center in many stories which featured Nola’s antics, fantasies, and of course, her love affair with Quint, the late Michael Tylo.

In his message on Brown’s death, Robert Newman expressed: “I was greatly saddened to hear of the sudden death of the great Lisa Brown. When I first joined the show in 1981, Lisa was pretty much the center of everything. A real whirlwind. Her work with the late Michael Tylo was fantastic. I particularly have fond memories of Nola’s fantasies …Wizard of Oz, Casablanca, etc. I don’t think I was ever a part of those fantasies, but I remember watching them being taped in the studio and she was just amazing.”

Newman goes on to say: “One of my fondest Lisa memories, however, was sitting in the audience at the Winter Garden Theater in NYC watching Lisa head up the cast of 42nd Street with Lee Roy Reams in 1981 or so. It was one of those times when you see a colleague that you know from one genre, Daytime Drama, in an entirely different genre, Musical Comedy, and you are completely surprised and blown away. Again, she was just fantastic in the role and I as a fellow musical comedy performer, I had great, great respect for her. Below is a clip from a television performance of her as Peggy in 42nd Street. Her death at such a young age is a great loss to the daytime community. Love and prayers to her family and friends.”

Michael Fairman TV also shares below the video posted by Robert below, which reminds us of just how multi-talented Lisa was for her fans, the audience, and to all that knew her. On a personal note: “Lisa always performed at the ‘Night of the Daytime Stars’ benefit for AMFAR in New York City during the AIDS pandemic that I created and produced.  It was the annual event held the night before the Daytime Emmys, and she was always willing to lend her support and talents to help others in need.”
