Looks like the baby drama on The Young and the Restless is about to become even more convoluted with this bit of casting news!  Actress Devon Martinez, the daughter of Days of our Lives star A Martinez (Eduardo), is coming to Genoa City in the role of Shawn Taylor, a young pregnant woman who is looking for the ideal parents to adopt her child. ”

And it looks like Shawn is considering Sage (Kelly Sullivan) and Nick (Joshua Morrow) as possible parents to her unborn child.    Martinez, who is a recent graduate from the Yale School of Drama, will hit the airwaves on the March 1st episode of the CBS sudser.

In an interview with TV Insider, Devon previewed:  “She’s considering Nick and Sage but she’s talking to other couples, as well, and still trying to make up her mind. She’s, like, ‘Who are these people? What is this town like? How is everyone connected?’  It’s been fun studying the back stories. Everyone, including Nick and Sage, has been through so much! But, despite their circumstances, what are their core values? It’s been fascinating to play a woman in Shawn’s position and getting to the heart of what really matters where you’re looking to give up your child.”

In terms of working with Joshua Morrow and Kelly Sullivan, Devon offered up:  “They’re such great actors. I did my final callback audition with Josh and it made all the difference. I’m really honored to be in their company. And I’m really happy to be working with executive producer Jill Phelps. My dad has a great history with her.

So,  what do you think about this latest twist in the Nick and Sage baby drama?  Are you excited to see A Martinez’ daughter on daytime?  Share your thoughts in the comment section below.

Edge Of Night did some of the best adoption stories…Martha Marceau adpoted a baby through the black market…the mob wanted her husband Bill Marceau to step down as chief-of-police. or loose the child..then Taffy the baby’s birth mother got the baby back…Martha distraught went to Taffy wanting the child, sees a gun and shoots Taffy…Martha goes on trial for Taffy’s murder…Martha is shown a photo of Taffys body…Martha remembers Taffy wearing curlers when she shot her but Taffy isnt wearing them in the photo…its proven the mob was responsible…they had staged Taffys murder to frame Martha and to get Bill to step down as chief-of-police…there were blanks in the gun when Martha shot Taffy and after she left the apartment the mob came to Taffy’s apartment(she was working for them) and murdered Taffy making Martha and others believe she was responsible for the heinous crime.

EON…..surely puts GH….to SHAME!!!

i sooooo agree…if only writers today could write like Henry Sleazer…Edge’s writer for over a decade!

Jimh(leave it to beaver)

Most of the stories in the 60s to 70s was daytime at its best…sometimes i would pretend to be sick so i could stay home from school and lay on the couch to catch up on my soaps-mom would bring me my lunch without me leaving the couch-lol…those definatly were the good old days.

Jim, I hate to admit, but I remember that story! Teri Keane and Mari Gorman were excellent . Didn’t you just hate Taffy? Nobody did crime and courtroom drama like Edge!

Jimh(leave it to beaver)
Jimh(leave it to beaver)

Henry Sleazer was the greatest courtroom and mystery writer…wish all those episodes survived the wiping process, especially the haunted house eps., the keith/Jonah serial murder storyline, the Orin Hillayer stories and Nicole storyline from the late 60s when two women wanted her dead-one murdered the other and Nicole was blamed for the crime…so many great moments in daytime history gone forever!

I agree–what suspense–beginning with that voice stetching out “The E-d-g-e of Night”–and that music. Great!

What a WONDERFUL storyline that was, Jim! I really enjoyed EON and remember that story as if it happened yesterday. Remember Morlock Sevingy being the true killer! Also remember this being the first programme where I ever saw the beautiful, late actress Dixie Carter as Olivia Brandise (Brandy) Henderson! How I miss those wonderful days! X

Jimh(leave it to beaver)
Jimh(leave it to beaver)

I couldn’t remember Morlock’s name to save my life-thanks for reminding me…i think Morlock was also the guy who was going to shoot Johnny Dallas but by mistake killed Vic Lamont-Lauri’s first husband…yes, Dixie Carter was wonderful as Brandy and Micheal Stroka who was earlier on Dark Shadows appeared as her psychiatrist brother Quentin Henderson on Edge…what a wonderful crime/mystery drama that was!

WOW! She looks so young! I am looking forward to this since it will bring lots of drama to Y&R! Can’t wait to see her in the role.

Mo

It doesn’t sound like this story will serve Y&R. She just shows up in town, hey, who wants to adopt my kid? Usually, people decide they want to adopt, then look for a baby. It’s a long process, but I know Y&R will shorten it.

Nanci

Hi Mo,
I was thinking the same thing. Sounds like a ridiculous and stupid s/l.

She looks so sweet–didn’t know A. had a daughter that had graduated Yale.

CeeCee

She really is pretty. She reminds me of a younger Kelly Clarkson. Interesting plot point. The decision to adopt is sort of sudden, I think.

Mo
Mo

Very sudden. I guess the home study took place off screen. I don’t know that an adoption agency, a creditable one, would want to place a child with a couple who had very recently lost a child. The couple needs to process that grief first, which Sage very clearly has not.

CeeCee
CeeCee

@Mo.
You bet, Mo. Normally I would say ok, ….after losing a child, it is too soon; not enough time to have grieved. I lost a child myself, so, the pain is everlasting. Forever…you grieve differently, but the sense of something missing in your life never goes away.
However, in Sage’s case, her motherly instincts are kicking in. She senses something she cannot explain. She has no clue Christian did not die…but she feels his aura…his presence.
Ergo, the dreams. …just my two-cents worth. Later.

Enough with all the Newman babies! In another few years this show is going to have the same problem GH is having where all the young characters are related and have no one to date.

They can always change the title to ‘The Young and the Incestuous.’

Yup, 4ever. That could also be said of GH, considering all of Sonny’s offspring running around.

Are you getting any ideas about Chelsea and Jack, 4ever? I hope this was just a friendly, comforting hug, we witnessed between them. Jack’s already old enough to be Phyllis’s father. Chelsea is even younger. Who’s next? Summer?
Billy and Phyllis make more sense to me.

Trudy

She looks like her Dad, lucky girl. I wish her well in her tv debut.

This can only end well for Nick and Sage–NOT. She will either become obsessed with Nick or want the baby back or the father of the kid shows up and either wants the kid or wants to shake down the Newman Family for big bucks– adoptions are never simple in soaps—speaking of kids, why has Victoria forgotten her other son, Reed? When she talks about her cozy family with Billy she never includes him in the picture. And Phyllis doesn’t mentioned Daniel or her granddaughter Lucy.

Rose

Mary SF… Since I’ve only been watching Y&R a couple of years, you made me realize how much catch-up I have.

CeeCee
CeeCee

You describe it to the letter, Mary. This marriage is doomed, which is the standard on soaps.
I had almost forgotten about Reed. My gosh, she never talks about him…..why is he with his father, again?
I have also said the same thing about Chelsea several times. How does she go on living without Johnny. Seeing him here and there is not the same thing. How do you not want to be with your child, worry about him, tuck him in bed, read to him…..I know it’s a soap.
It’s weird how none of these mothers try not to get custody back. Considering Victor’s international power, surprising Reed is not with his mother. Bye.

Mary SF
Mary SF

JT filed for full custody when Victoria was arrested for the murder of Adam and he got it. When Vicky was cleared she tried to regained custody, but Victor’s attempt to help her win her case backfired when it was proven the Newman’s were behind attempting to make JT miss the court date. Later before JT and Mac decided to move to Washington, Vicky tired again to regain custody, but her life was a mess and JT said if she tried she would lose because he was the more stable reliable parent, so she agreed to let Reed move to Washington. So she did try, and for a while they mentioned him, but it has been a while, a character can only do what the writers write, so the fault are writers that like to create the babies, then pretend they don’t exist until about the age of ten, then poof, they are SORAS to seventeen overnight—so yeah it would be nice if children on soaps were written like real children and not merely as props when it suits the story line.

CeeCee
CeeCee

Thank you for the history, Mary. I remember it clearly now….sometimes, I forget certain details. Yet, other times, I can remember scenes when I was still very young, watching soaps with my Gran. Lol.

CeeCee
CeeCee

Yeah…I mentioned Daniel in a different context, though, Mary. Daniel is now in his late twenties, early thirties? This is one of the reasons I keep saying Gina Tognoni is all wrong as Phyllis….many more reasons, as well. The writers would have to change a lot of the history for Daniel to come back.
No way could Phyllis, as we now know her, could possibly be mother to a 30-year old.
What kind of grandmother does not crave a visit from her grandchild?

Mary SF
Mary SF

Daniel was born in 1994, so the character should only be 22, but the character was SORAS in 2004 to 16, which now makes him 28– it is a bit of stretch for Phyllis since Billy Abbott originally was born in 1993, which would make him only a year older than her son. Billy was SORAS in 99 to 16, which now puts him in his thirties, but long time viewers know how old he should be, which is too young for Phyllis or Victoria– LOL

I think she is going to be just great–love the idea and love the potential.

Perhaps someone ought to fill the young lady in on what it’s REALLY LIKE to work with/work for that JIll Farren Phelps woman.

‘Bachelor’ Creator Mike Fleiss Slapped With Restraining Order After Allegedly Attacking Wife; Demanding She Have An Abortion

In what is now become sadly its own soap opera, the creator of ‘The Bachelor” franchise, Mike Fleiss and his wife, Laura are in the middle of a media frenzy this week after reports surfaced on Wednesday that Laura filed a restraining order against him following an argument and altercation allegedly over Fleiss demanding she have an abortion, as she is presently pregnant with his second child.

As more information came to light Mike had filed for divorce last week earlier after five years of marriage citing irreconcilable differences, according to court documents. It was listed their separation date was on July 7.  In addition, Mike requested joint legal and physical custody of their young son, Benjamin,

Shortly after the divorce filing, Laura who is a former Miss America from Wisconsin (Laura Kaeppeler), winning the crown in 2012, then filed an emergency domestic violence restraining order on Mike. In her claim, she says he physically attacked her and “demanded” she get an abortion. This allegedly went down over the July 4th weekend,  Court documents state that Laura is ten weeks pregnant at this time.

In addition, Laura alleges that Fleiss informed her: ‘If you have an abortion, then we can just go back to the way we were.’”  She went on to say: “Prior to July 4th, Mike threatened me that if I did not have an abortion, he would end the marriage.  This was not the first time he had threatened a divorce during our marriage, but now, he was using this threat as leverage to force me to have an abortion. In addition, on July 4th, Mike made the following statements to me: ‘I am cutting you off financially Monday morning’; ‘You are paying for everything with your money’; ‘Next time I see you, I don’t want to see your stomach’; and ‘You have a choice, you can choose. Have an abortion or go back to Wisconsin, but you are not taking Ben.’”

Fleiss defended himself in the documents obtained by The Blast: “I have not hurt, attacked, or attempted to physically harm Laura or our child, Benjamin Fleiss ‘Ben,’ in any way., Laura was the aggressor during the incident and physically attacked me. I tried to get away from her as she was chasing me and hitting me. I have security footage from our home that shows the incident, which the Court can review.”

He also added that: “After the incident, Laura was initially remorseful. I was leaving Hawaii for work commitments in Los Angeles. I spent time with Ben at the house in Hawaii prior to leaving for Los Angeles. A few days after the incident, Laura stopped all communication with me. “I don’t know where Ben is and I want custody of him because of Laura’s instability.”

On Thursday, Radar Online released text messages provided by Fleiss to the courts from his estranged wife.

Meanwhile, Warner Brothers, the company behind the “Bachelor” franchise said of the incident and the status of Fleiss with this series: We are aware of these serious allegations, and are looking into them.”

So, do you think Fleiss should be, or will be asked to step away from ‘The Bachelor’ franchise in lieu of this domestic dispute and violence issue? Comment below.

General Hospital

With Talk Of Nikolas On GH, Tyler Christopher Says: “I’ve Always Said I Would Never Close That Door From My Side”

On recent episodes of ABC’s General Hospital, a few of the key characters in the life of the “late” Nikolas Cassadine spoke about him including: his on-screen mother, Laura (Genie Francis), his ex, Hayden Barnes (Rebecca Budig), and a woman who would have been poised to be a new love interest, Ava (Maura West).

So with the name-drops and mentions in recent weeks, could the character who was shot by Valentin (James Patrick Stuart) and fell out a glass window on a balcony, be making a return soon and be very much alive?

Soap fans tweeted at the actor most known for his role as Nikolas Cassadine (in which he won a Daytime Emmy for his performance), and former Days of our Lives star, Tyler Christopher, to see what his thoughts were on what could be happening on General Hospital with the character.

Tyler made this statement to his Twitter followers: “You are all very sweet to be so loyaI as you always are. I know they are talking about Nikolas as of late. I’ve always said I would never close that door from my side. I just want to thank you all for always rooting for me and the character. I grew up with him as many of u have.”

For over 20 years, Christopher had played the role of the dark prince of the Cassadines.  When he went on leave from the series in 2016, he was replaced by Nick Stabile, who was Nikolas at the time of the character’s supposed death.

Later, Tyler debut on Days of our Lives and took on the role of the newly created character of Stefan O DiMera.  He was also nominated earlier this year for a Daytime Emmy for Lead Actor for his performance in that role.

Longtime fans of GH have also been active on social media hoping that somehow GH could find a way to bring back both Tyler, as well as his on-screen TV brother, Jonathan Jackson (Ex-Lucky) so Laura could also have her sons back on the canvas.

So, do you think GH is about to bring Nikolas back?  Share your thoughts via the comment section below.
