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 and Jill thought they were mother and daughter, at the time….so, poof went their relationship….by the time they realized they were not related by blood, their love had fizzled….
I miss those days so much….stars in my eyes….
No big, big stories, per se ( The Young And The Restless), yet she was instrumental to the ‘YOUNG’ scene of Genoa City and all that goes with it. She was also credited for bringing joy to Katherine’s life, as she had no grandchildren……’Tis my misfortune Devon showed up. HaHa.
The rest is history…LOL.

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.

Inwas just about to type your exact words, Leila…..I want Ashley….not the same. No one else will do!!

I was…correction.

@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.

So what is the occasion that brings all these Ex-Y&Rers back?

If you read the article, you’d know: it’s for the 45th anniversary celebration of The Young and the Restless.

Mark Y

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.

I”m reading on line its for JT’s funeral.

OK…here it is…

1. David Lago (Raul)…TOTALLY!!!!!
2. Lauren Woodland (Brittany)…HELL YEAH!!!!!
3. Kelly Kruger…NO THANK YOU!!!!!
4. I am SUPER EXCITED about Meg Bennett (Julia) returning to Y&R for the 45th Anniversary…YAY!!!!!
5. Most of all, BRING TRICIA CAST (Nina) BACK for the celebration!!!!!

Later.

Celia
Celia

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.

Ron

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

Celia

@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 way is coming from my subconscience—could it be I have heard this from Katherine herself?

Celia
Celia

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!

Mac should be back. What about her kids?

Scott (ATWT Fan)
Scott (ATWT Fan)

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” or “fan favorites” because they’ve never heard or seen them. Learn your history before you make yourself high and mighty, because all of these characters are rooted in the history of The Young and the Restless, and I cannot wait to celebrate its 45th birthday!

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.

Celia

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).

Jussie Smollett Scenes Cut From ‘Empire’ In Light Of Attack Investigation

As of Tuesday, the production of Fox’s hit series, Empire has slashed Jussie Smollett’s upcoming scenes following reports that the suspicion is now on him for allegedly staging the “hate” attack he reported to the Chicago PD back on January 29th.

According to production sources viaTMZ: Jussie was supposed to have nine scenes and a big musical performance in the second-to-last episode of Season 5,  Now, five scenes and the musical number have been axed.  Smollett’s character is also no longer the focus of his remaining four scenes, which will now feature an ensemble of characters.

The actor/singer who portrays Jamal Lyon will be working Friday and possibly Thursday but won’t be rehearsing.

The Empire writers are said to have been scrambling over the last 24 hours to revise this season’s scripts.

All of this despite despite strongly expressed renewed support by Empire showrunner Brett Mahoney on February 17th.  The goal now is said to be to reduce Smollett’s role both in dramatic stints and musical performances.

Empire returns for the remainder of its fifth season on March 13.

Smollett claims he was the victim of a racist and homophobic attack near his Chicago apartment, but things took a turn when he may have paid two friends to help stage the assault.

This case is said to be going before a Grand Jury as early as today.

What are your thoughts on the latest developments in the Smollett case and Empire reducing his appearances for the remainder of the season? Comment below.

TODAY: Y&R’s Melody Thomas Scott Visits ‘The Talk’ As Her 40th Anniversary Week As Nikki Newman Kicks-Off

On today’s broadcast of the CBS afternoon series, The Talk, the ladies welcome Y&R icon, Melody Thomas Scott, who this week celebrates her incredible 40th anniversary with the show as Nikki Newman.

During her segment, Melody chats on Wednesday’s upcoming standalone episode where Nikki is in jail reflecting on her life.  Wednesday is also the exact date of Thomas Scott’s 40th anniversary with the CBS Daytime drama series.

During the segment Melody fills the ladies in on the “All About Nikki” episode, as she relates:  “I was so thrilled that they did this. It’s truly, really the life of Nikki in the entirety of the episode. It’s all about Nikki. And she’s in jail. She’s writing a letter to her grandchildren so that she can explain who she really is, how she got to where she is.  I have to narrate it, I’ve got a voice-over, a long voice-over. And then, as I’m thinking about all these different times in my life, I can’t believe I’m referring to me as her, her life, then we see the flashbacks. And for the longtime viewers, even current viewers, it is such a trip down memory lane. I mean, you are on that train and you’re not getting off…all of the clips have not been seen since they were first aired.”

In addition, Melody addresses the passing of her longtime co-star and friend, Kristoff St. John relating:  “I adored him. We all adored him. There was something very unique and magical about him. He would just draw you into his wonderful world. And all of his bear hugs, I can’t believe I’ll never get a bear hug. Going to any kind of event, any party, the first thing I said when I got there was ‘Where’s Kristoff?’ I want to find Kristoff, I want to be with him, I want to be in his air space. Because that’s the kind of guy he was, and I think that came through on camera. I think everybody sensed that, I mean everybody adored him.”

So, will you be checking out Melody on today’s episode of The Talk (2PMEST and 1PM PST) today? Comment below.
