And the CBS Link Worked 🙂 lol:)

Worked for me too! And I’m from Canada! He’s probably happy just to have a job! LOL!

I have only watched Y & R with Billy Miller playing Billy Abbott, so I have to wait and see before I can make my comments. I just know I love Billy Miller in the role….and am very disappointed with his leaving. Will miss Michael Muhney also. But I shall give David Tom a chance …..back in his Billy Abbott role!!!!

Are you kidding me why give him a chance he already had one he was replaced by Billy Millar and now that Billy has gone it will never be the same, also with Adam now gone we are not watching to show any more so why dont you join us and let those at the top get the message once and for all its the fans that count, no more for me Im with the one that are boycotting the show

I stand with you Rita! I am not boycotting, because I don’t want Michael Muhney back on the show. He deserves better than Y&R. I stopped watching early Jan, and don’t miss it.

January 31, 2014

day 3 and counting…

i’m surprised at how easy this is… really

when the cast is so replete of talent…

I couldn’t disrespect all…. once again… I hope the best for Amelia, Sharon, and Peter

tomorrow is day 4

why not try a network boycott

I’ve decided to boycott the winter olympics…. Russia considers LGBT a crime

I think boycotting the show over an actor leaving is silly. I love Y and R. I love soaps. I support them both.

Of course, it is your choice but I really don’t get it. The genre is bigger than one actor and I, for one, think the genre has taken a big enough “hit” from talk shows, cruddy daytime execs etc. Let’s show it some LOVE and SUPPORT fans 🙂

NOT WITH YOU ON THIS, The acting is stupid guess you havent seen the Abby one, also lilly and cain nothing no storyline, as for Victor gimmie me a break please dont insult my intelligence, I know a good actor when I see one and the only way is to stop watching why you you even consider allowing the brass at the top to win this one finally the fans are standing up and believe me they are taking notice, with Billy and Adam gone the show is now ruined, why dont you pick an actor who can act

I don’t care ,I’ve watched as long as I can remember ,I’m done with the show CBS is really gone down hill

Well, I will miss BM but I’m glad his role lives on through David Tom.
Hopefully, Adams role will be recast as well. GC isn’t
The same without Adam. He was instrumental
to various storylines and he kept the twists and turns
coming. Lets get this character back on the screen soon.

The Adam character should have met the Grim Reaper by way of Billy’s hands.

Nice to know Michael Muhney will not be on our screens anymore however.

Whatever @ Joshua

Silly bashing of Muhney, who was the best actor on the show. Nice job Joshua, or is your name Eric?

Joshua, you really need to keep your 2 cents worth out of the conversation..Evidently, you don’t know what excellent acting consists of. The only way to save this ridiculous soap is to beg Adam to return (and I mean Michael and not some off the wall replacement). I think everyone now realizes what a HUGE mistake it was firing the most popular star on the show. As for Billy Abbott, who really cares, but Michael was awesome in every episode. I guess everyone now can watch some of the casts spending most of their time talking to ghosts. How ridiculous!! To whomever was responsible for getting rid of Adam, I suggest you practice forming your lips to beg the man to return and offer him anything he wants. How stupid to accuse him of such a ludicrous and absurd thing!! You have forever ruined this show!! I truly hope it goes downhill as fast as it took you idiots to come up with that crazy story as to how you can get rid of MM…..Bad Move!!!!!!! Your loss and GH’s Gain!!! Ha Ha.

No no no and no!!!
This is not good, not at all..

I do not care if David Tom was once Billy he just doesn’t cut it..

Billy Miller/Billy Abbott owns the character of Billy..
After the strong performance of Billy Miller/Billy Abbott, a mature man, and my Billy, David Tom will not be able to fit his shows or replace Billy Miller..

This is going to be an epic fail ..

right on, dont understand these people who wont stick with us, they are not getting what is happening to our beloved show, its not the show you watched last year totally a new show that sucks, no Adam and No Billy so no more Y @ R

I am use to Billy Miller been watching Y&R for many many years with my mom, I really miss her she’s gone now 🙁 anyway back to the show Billy kinda looks like my younger brother and I also thought he was a fantastic actor….Adam was always an outcast but in the end he tried to be a better person you have to bring him back he’s an excellent actor and easy on the eyes 🙂

David Tom was a pouty, annoyingly selfish, self-centered Billy Abbott. You can’t erase that from our memory banks by giving him a Billy Miller haircut. I would have preferred the character just be killed off and then we discover that it wasn’t even Adam who killed Delia. Find out it’s Kelly the home-wrecker that he slept with the killed her. Bring Michael Muhney back as Adam, cleared of all guilt and let him live a nice, happy life with Chelsea. He and Jack can go after Victor over the mail order drugs at the same time Nikki gives him the bam-zoom for his poor treatment of Dillon and blackmail of Adam. Come on writers … if it doesn’t make sense to the fans, we find something else to do with our time.

Joanne…T-H-A-N-K Y-O-U!!!!! AGREED!!!!! Give me Billy Miller over David Tom ANY DAY!!!!! BM has a really WONDERFUL EDGE as an actor. DT? Not so much, No.

You go girl….love it Ditto to everything you said…

i agree with you Billy Miller play a better role then David Tom

Why is CL always on the welcoming committee in the magazines too it makes me ill

Who is CL

Welcome back,big guy!!! this is lot better than new Billy Abbott..

I’m happy to see David Tom again. We’re the same age, and I started watching Y&R in college with Billy, Mac, Raul and Rhianna as the teens. I’ll never forget one cliffhanger when drunken Billy was passed out in the snow while there was a party going on inside. Billy’s relationship with Mac was never as good as it was when David Tom and Ashly Bashioum played them. Plus, I think Jill loves David Tom’s Billy just a little bit more.

This is very reminiscent of the two Janets on All My Children. Kate Collins was great. Robin Mattson became a fan favorite too. Then Kate Collins came back. Two actresses who didn’t look anything alike managed play Janet correctly without imitating each other, if that makes sense.

I am very excited to see David Tom back as Billy. He’s so talented and adorable.

I didn’t see Y&R when David Tom played Billy and this will be a change… we will see if it is a good one… Billy Miller’s shoes are hard ones to fill!

I honestly benn watching this show since birth with my mom and now I’m never missing an episode its the only show i watch that cant miss episodes bedides ellen degeneres two favorite shows ever but one thing I hate is seeing characters leave and someone new playing their roles. No one will play billy better then billy and for Adam and billy leaving its going to be hard. I wish billy could still be played as billy but I understand actors leave for whatever reasons. Still wondering what happened to Jill the show really isn’t the same with out Catherine god bless her soul loved her the show is to me number one best soap ever the only one I watch but I am to say I’m a number one an love the whole cast maybe one day I’ll fly down to watch athe set live! Hope original billy comes back. Love Tammy always a #1 fan xxoo

The original Adam should come back too. While were at it bring back original Jill

I am thrilled! Can Ashley Bashioum be far behind? One can hope! Welcome back, David.

Hate to see both go especially Adam…noone canplay that part like him!

Adam was my favorite character in the young and the restless. I have been faithful to that show for 40 years !!! I can not believe they killed his character !!!! Every day I was looking forward to a part with Adam drama….poor Adam… What is wrong with CBS ???????The other crybabies brats they left on the show will keep it more interesting???? this stinks big time !!!!!

Adam will be back. He will be recast if all we read is accurate. Hard to believe Michael Muhney would ever return.

But, Adam will live to interact with the citizens of Genoa City and reek havoc, spread his special charm and drive story lines once again.

Hip, hip hooray 🙂

Y&R miscast the Adam character several times before Michael Muhney was cast. I have no doubt it will be miscast once again. Sad. I love so many of the characters, storylines and actors … but I am starting to get fed up with losing so many great actors (Jeanne, Michelle, Michael and Billy, the little girl that played Delia was adorable) and so many marginal characters kept (Fen, Carmine, Kelly, Chloe). I wish they would decide whether they are trying to keep fans or find new ones. I agree with whoever said showing the outside of the houses is cheesy. The first day they appeared, I was intrigued, after all we’d never seen the outside of these houses before. Now, I’m annoyed. The mansions all look so much smaller than my mind had them. And, we see them everyday now … is it cheaper to show a still of the outside of a house than to pay an actor to act? Guess so.

This was a cute video. I loved the expression on Michael’s face when Nikki told him to ‘put the picture back’!

After watching that clip of David Tom, I’m still having trouble picturing him as the adult Billy…and Victoria’s husband. Even though Tom is a year older than Miller, he has even MORE of a baby face than BM.

Oh well, the Villy marriage will probably be ending soon. Maybe he’ll hook up with Chelsea, his other baby-mama. Or Chloe? I liked those two together!

How many Y&R fans miss Ashley/Eileen Davidson? She will once again be seen in Salem on
Days of our Lives!!! Y&R’s loss is DAYS gain!!!

Eileen Davidson is phenomenal. Ridiculously great on Days. If only the writers of Y and R new how to write Ashely as well as Days writes Kristen!!

I am just wondering if Billy Miller had any idea that his spot at Y&R would be filled so quickly and naturally by another actor, specifically David Tom? Would Billy Miller have left?

I do love Billy Miller at Billy Abbott but…David Tom is a heck of good choice to fill his shoes.

I agree. I love both guys as Billy. They are both very cute, too!

Shame on you for having Dillian to dye in the show! I can understand if Billy want to move on, but Adam, what happen to a second change & apology ! Adam was a strong actor in the show, he play Avery excellent part in the show agains his acting father Victor! As for as Nickie in the show, her rating as b acting is getting old! Glad you fondly gott rid of Phillis, for awhile or for ever!! I say bring back Adam back with Chestley! I’ve watch Young and Restless for many years! Maybe you need to change the writers! Shame , shame on you, for changing some of your actors! Yes, I love Catherine , very excellent actress ,in her part of Young and Restless! It ‘s time to let her memories go! This my opinion on the soap! Letting those two great actors go and killing off Dillia! You really mess up! Yes I am, for changes own this you mess big time!!!!!:(

Great promo….Welcome back, David…

Let me see…that baby-faced-looking David Tom is back in the role of Billy Abbott. Blah Blah Blah Blah. Next…

AM SO GOING TO MISS BILLY MILLER>>> Very disappointed he did not stay…

I liked Billy Abbott he could be fun and sad ,it will take me a long time to get to like the new Billy. and Adam sometimes I liked him and sometimes I didn’t. thanks

I cannot believe Adam will no longer be on Y&R, he made the show very exciting, I just loved the part he played. David Tom, woopy, he will never take Billy Millers place. I have watched Y&R since it started but I won’t stop what I’m doing anymore to watch it. I will miss you Adam and the best Billy Abbott ever.

The show will NEVER be the same without Adam! I also like Billy Miller, he was beginning to seem to lose interest in his part but not Adam. PLEASE bring him back!

I agree completely!

I saw David Tom on today’s Canadian. He’s no Billy Miller, that’s for sure.

I’m about tired of it.. Ive always liked the show but after they lost Phyllis ( who they will never replace with a believable character for those of who have known her for years, It kind of left a “void” in the show, much like when Shelia Carter left… Certain characters you can’t really “replace” you just have to move on. Now on to these two. Adam in particular was a major player in my opinion as a “villian” particularly once they lost Phyllis. Now that they’ve lost the two “BEST VILLIANS” in day time, they further compounded the problem with the loss of Billy the “bad boy”. A lot of the other characters are great but some of them have grown REALLY old .. Even to me a long time watcher who appreciates longevity. I just am not “feeling” it much any more. I dont see how Sharon and these other characters are going to pick up ALL THAT SLACK by themselves.. It remains to be seen and I usually don’t like to jump the gun and say I dont like an “actor” until they are given a chance but i’m REALLY not feeling this new (old) “BILLY”. Wow .. The first scene I just watched with him , he was REALLy doing some “OVER ACTING”.. The scene was almost like a high school play… Ms Chancellor? They’ve lost a lot this year / too much in my opinion in such a short period of time. I had already “slacked up” on watching, I’m TRYING to keep it within my attention span but again, at this point, I’m just not “feeling it” any longer… Sad after all these years as a loyal watcher.. SOmetimes change is good.. Sometimes it cant be helped, but sometimes too much to fast is a BIG OLE MISTAKE..

hi I love watching y and r when I can get to a tv i’m so glad that david tom is back as billy abbott and I know that heather is too. I also would like it if jerry douglas would come back as john abbott he was also good. again thanks for heather tom davids sister for finding david or however he was found and that he himself was willing to come back to y and r. also please note that I am not a y and r fan but I am an enthusiaste I don’t believe in fans I love david tom as himself not just because he is on y and r I think he would make a good friend dispite what he does.

Bring Adam back… He’s one of the best actors on the show. Somehow it needs to be proven Dillia
was an accident and Adam did not know he hit her. He had good reasons not to come forward although
it would have been best. Heck everyone hated him and would not have believed it was not a hit and run.

Watched February 4th episode snowed in sit down took a chance David Tom knocked it out of the park no one can put on the water works like the Tom’s. He slipped into that role again like an old pair of house slippers! Congrats and I promise you his reunion with Jess/Jill will knock it out of the park. For some reason they never played the Billy/Jill with BM in the role. Welcome home David Tom!!!!!

I LIKE THE OLD BILLY….SINCE THIS ONE CAME ON THE SHOW FEBURARY 3RD IT SURE ISNT THE SAME AT ALL….TO ME IT IS A COMPLETE MISTAKE AND I DO NOT LIKE SEEING BILLY AT ALL NOW

I’m sorry but David Tom’s return to Y&R is N-O-T cutting it for me. At all. And, as far as I’m concerned, both DT and Amelia Heinle look awkward and ridiculous in scenes together. BORING AND BLAND!!!!!

sorry, was a fan last run, but you still look way too young..and NOTHING can replace the chemistry Billy Miller and Amelia have!! bad mistake!

Days Of Our Lives

Arianne Zucker Reflects Back on the ‘Access Hollywood’ Tape with Donald Trump, and Speaks to Her Exit from Days of our Lives

It’s been eight years, but somehow seems like ages ago, that Arianne Zucker was thrust into the mainstream public limelight, unfortunately not for her work as Nicole on Days of our Lives, but for the Access Hollywood taped that surfaced when former president Donald Trump  and current Republican nominee, visited the set of the (then) NBC soap opera, and met Zucker.

The tape captured a hot mic moment between Trump and then ‘Access’ host Billy Bush inside of their bus which featured lewd remarks about Zucker between the two men.

Speaking on the moment, Zucker opened about it on Rachel Uchitel’s Miss Understood podcast, where the video version of the interview is now on Uchitel’s You Tube Channel. Back in 2005, Arianne was the scene partner with Trump in his Apprentice/Days of our Lives crossover appearance, because her character of Nicole was at the time a gold-digger.

Zucker shared of her on set experience with Trump from 2005, “I had a great experience. He was lovely, and I had no idea anything behind the scenes was happening. So, it never affected me.” Next in October 2016, Arianne says she it got a call from her manager at the time when the Access Hollywood tapes came to light and that is when she first heard about the situation.

The actress and life coach reflected back, “Everybody has spoken poorly about somebody in their lifetime. I don’t care who you are, everybody has, it’s just people get caught on camera doing it. Unfortunately, that happens all the time. And if you’ve ever gone to a fraternity party, these things happen. So (when she later read the taped comments) I’m going, ‘sounds like something my fraternity guys I know would say.’ But I just didn’t see it in the way that people were seeing it.’”

Expressing why she never made an official comment when the press were asking for one, Arianne revealed, “I didn’t make a comment though, because I was in fear of losing my job. So I didn’t say anything.”  She added, “I felt attacked by the media because I knew all they wanted. I mean, the biggest thing was to get Trump off the ballot. I was like, that is not my job.”

Later, Arianne explained she felt she received no protection from the situation. “I got no apology from my place of employment. I really got no apology from NBC. I felt I had no protection. ”

DAYS fans are counting down and not happily that about six weeks from now, on July 29th, when Zucker makes her on-screen exit from Days of our Lives. After being fired for standing up to Corday Productions for on set sexual harassment and discrimination charges, the actress formally filed a lawsuit she has brought against her former employer which includes charges of

Zucker said on her upcoming departure from DAYS, “I will not say how I leave the show. I do respect that we don’t want to share that. We want the fans to be excited and enticed.” However, Arianne confirmed that the character of Nicole is not ‘killed-off”.

So, what do you think of Arianne’s comments reflecting back on the Access Hollywood tapes media frenzy with Donald Trump, and her upcoming exit from DAYS? Weigh-in. But first, check out Ari on Rachel’s podcast below.

Matthew Atkinson Returns to The Bold and the Beautiful and Previews a Major Change in Thomas’ Life that “Shocks” Everyone

This Friday, June 21st, marks the first on-screen appearance of Matthew Atkinson (Thomas Forrester) on The Bold and the Beautiful since March of this year. In story, Thomas packed up and headed to Paris with his son, Douglas in tow, after Hope (Annika Noelle) turned down his marriage proposal for the second time.

Viewers have waited anxiously for his come back pondering, that when Thomas returns, would he go right back to pursuing Hope? What would be his demeanor after timeParis? Well, we are about to find out.

However, Hope now seems to be somewhat becoming obsessed with Finn (Tanner Novlan), Steffy’s (Jacqueline MacInnes Wood) husband, and has developed feelings for him. Might Thomas’ return to Los Angeles have him finding Hope and Finn in a comprising situation?

Speaking with Soap Opera Digest on his imminent return, Atkinson shared on the Finn/Hope potential pairing, “From Thomas’ point of view, he knows nothing about it, and so maybe that helps my point of view.”

Teasing what to look for when Thomas returns to the canvas, Atkinson dropped, “Thomas has had one particular very large change in his life since he left town. And when he comes back, it is something that shocks everyone.” What would “shock” the family and everyone who knows him? Could it be that Thomas got engaged or married to another women, while he was in Europe?

Atkinson weighed-in on the fan response and support for those viewers missing him on-screen during his time away from the show, expressing, “I just never expected the response that I’ve gotten and we’ve gotten from the fans, especially (with) Thomas leaving. I can’t speak for all the fans, but there’s a wealth of people that are either really, really upset that Thomas is gone for a period or really sad. (They) reach out and they’re like, ‘Hey, when are you back? When are you back? When are you back?’ That just speaks to their care for this character.'”

So, what do you think will be the shocking change in Thomas’ life that is revealed when he returns to Los Angeles? Comment below.

Days Of Our Lives

DAYS Dan Feuerriegel on EJ Keeping Eric From His Child, “He’s in the Deep End … There’s No Coming Back for Him Now”

On Days of our Lives, Nicole (Arianne Zucker) has been reunited with her biological son, baby Jude. Her husband, EJ (Dan Feuerriegel), is now keeping a major secret, and in order to keep it from coming out he had to get Sloan (Jessica Serfaty) out of Salem, and keep both Melinda Trask (Tina Huang) and Leo Stark (Greg Rikaart) quiet and at bay.

However, as in any good soap opera, time is running out for EJ. What will happen when Nicole and Eric (Greg Vaughan) find out that EJ is not the little one’s biological father, but Eric is? And, what will happen when they realize EJ knew the truth and hid it from them?

This is just one item in a laundry list of skullduggery committed by EJ since he has been in Salem. With Arianne Zucker set to exit on-screen on July 29th, it looks like we are heading into the home stretch of the baby switch storyline.

Michael Fairman TV caught up with Dan Feuerriegel to get his take on the situation and what it has been like working with Greg and Ari in the story.

Dan shared on EJ’s despicable decision to pretend he is Jude’s bio-dad, “I know I’m a terrible human being, but I love playing a terrible human being.” Feurriegel added, “Oh, he’s in the deep end. Like, there is no coming back for him now.”

The DAYS star also noted if EJ had done anything more nefarious to Sloan, his character might not ever be able to come back from that. “There’s only so much hatred EJ can get from the viewers that it probably would’ve been a bridge too far for me to just make her (Sloan) disappear,” clarified Dan.

Photo: JPI

As to his time working with Arianne Zucker as his on-screen wife, Dan had noting but praise for her. Feuerriegel expressed, “I loved working with her. She’s so good. She’s an amazing actress. She’s fantastic. Every scene that I did with her, I didn’t have to do anything because I just rode on the coattails of what she did. It was an absolute pleasure to work with her.”

Photo: JPI

Dan also had high marks for his on-screen nemesis, Greg Vaughan, “Greg is fantastic, like everybody in the storyline was amazing. Greg’s amazing … Ari’s amazing … Jessica was fantastic and that’s what made it work. I’m very grateful to have worked with every single one of them.”

Photo: JPI

On soap operas and especially on Days of our Lives, when someone exits, or ‘dies’ on-screen that doesn’t mean goodbye forever, and Dan knows this too. In regards to anyone who leaves Salem, the actor joked, “I’m not going to say the doors closed, because you never say never, especially in Hollywood or on a soap. I mean, I’ve come back and I was like two inches shorter and (with) a completely different face.”

So, how do you think Eric will find out that Jude is really his son, and that EJ has been lying to keep Nicole? Let us know in the comment section, but first Check out our conversation with Dan from the red carpet at the recent 51st annual Daytime Emmy Awards below.
