Perfect timing for Kristin to come back to Salem and add to Brady’s harem who are fighting for him. I expect Nicole back soon too. 4lovely schemers to add more chaos to Salem.

Please write her out as a kidnapping, so she can have a chance for a return. Or make her richer than Victor so she can be the boss over the mustache.

Ashley Abbott , she is a nasty piece of work.
She’s the one taking down Newman Enterprise and she will exit by going to prison.
You heard it here first, folks
Ashley Abbott is the culprit behind the destruction of NE, wait for it.

I don’t believe this, I think JT is alive. Heck, maybe Victor is doing it to clean house.

Not sure about that one, SUOO. But I was thinking (and hoping) that Ashely geared up the whole Jack paternity story. Ashely was deeply emotionally scarred upon finding out that she’s not the biological daughter of John Abbott. She deeply resented Jack for being the CEO of Jabot Cosmetics and never forgave him for the blood Abbot clause. I think she took advantage of her mother’s ramblings and tampered with both the DNA test results to get back at Jack and to possibly take over Jabot cosmetics after Billy does away with the blood Abbott clause. This would not be the first time Ashely tampered with DNA results. Billy thwarted her plans by actually digging his new role as the Jabot CEO and now she’s banking on his propensity to self sabotage. When the truth comes out Ashely will be sent back to the loony bin and Jack will be sent back to his rightful seat as the Jabot CEO. This is what I HOPE will turn out anyway because I hate that they have also taken Jack away from John. First they kill of John Abbott, then they make Ashely illegitimate and now they are tying to do the same to Jack. The Abbotts are now on the endangered species list. Moreover, I hate that they have Jack acting like a silly lost boy looking for his daddy at the tender age of sixty-four.

Going to miss her. I have been a fan since she started on Y&R. I hope this doesn’t mean the end of the Abbott family. Jack is already claiming the Chancellor name and Tracy is hardly there. I noticed lately that Eileen’s screen time has diminished in the past few weeks. A sign of things to come, I guess?

This is sad news. I’ve always thought Davidson and Ashley Abbott were huge assets to the show. Davidson will always be my favorite actress to play Ashley. However, with her choosing to leave, I would hate to see Ashley go as well. Jack is never as compelling a character without Ashley around. I would welcome the return of Brenda Epperson to the part. Epperson did a great job in a tough situation — taking over as Ashley went Epperson quit in the late 80s.

If she’s leaving Y&R, then shouldn’t she be going to Salem…. instead of some random recast?

Lord…..that is such an old, made-up, out of left field rumor. If it were true, more power to her because she is one of the most in demand actresses of daytime!

What a nasty, uncalled for comment.

Eileen is one of the most beautiful and talented women in daytime or primetime.

Guess I’ll be tuning out of Y & R. Eileen is the only reason I watch the show. TPTB have not given her a substantial storyline in ages. Yes, she is a part of The Abbott family and their storyline(s), Dina’s storyline, and Jabot; but, she hasn’t had a love interest in YEARS. & I didn’t care for the “Graham” storyline.

While I’ll miss seeing Eileen on Y&R, I am in complete support of her leaving a show that only rarely gives her decent material. It’s been 4 years of arcs that never really get off the ground, so it’s time for a change. I don’t know how Ashley will leave, but I wish Eileen the best of luck in the future.

Yeah, Eileen jumped the shark when you cheapened herself by doing the Housewives show. Regardless, she has not been featured on Y&R in years so the loss doesnt shake me.

I hope they recast her. If they can recast Billy and Adam they can recast Ashley.

Y&R’s Bryton James Stands Up For Michael Jackson After Allegations In New Documentary, ‘Leaving Neverland’

Since the Sundance Film Festival premiered, the Michael Jackson documentary Leaving Neverland, set to air March 3 and 4th on HBO, left attendees disturbed by the sexual abuse allegations detailed in the film by two men, who worked with, and knew Jackson when they were just children, Wayne Robson and James Safechuck.  In this expose, they claim that the iconic musician sexually abused them when they were young.

However, a new article from Forbes, details incidents that took place that could have led to Robson and Safechuck to change their tune and say they were abused, when back on the stand in 2005 during one of Jackson’s triasl, Robson adamantly, confidently, and credibly asserted that nothing sexual happened between them,

Then in 2013, Robson filed a $1.5 billion dollar civil lawsuit/creditor’s claim, along with James Safechuck, who also spent time with Jackson in the late ‘80s. Safechuck claimed he only realized he may have been abused when Robson filed his lawsuit. That lawsuit was dismissed by a probate court in 2017.

However, several adults who knew Jackson when they were children have spoken up and let it be known that there was no sexual abuse when they were young perpatrated on them by the oop icon including: Macaulay Culkin, Sean Lennon, Emmanuel Lewis, Alfonso Ribeiro, and Corey Feldman, to name a few.

You can add The Young and the Restless Bryton James (Devon Hamlilton) to that list,  James, who appeared at a young age in a commercial with Jackson, and who became a close friend of Michael’s, took to Twitter over the weekend to share his sentiments, and to let people know he never witnessed, or heard of anything inappropriate going on with a minor.

James tweeted:  “Over our 15 year friendship, neither I or my family ever witnessed @michaeljackson conduct himself inappropriately with a minor, or anyone for that matter. & during the time I worked with Mr. Robson as a child, he never once mentioned any wrong doing.”

So, what do you think of Bryton’s message in tandem with the Forbes article on the accusers in Leaving Neverland, and the never-ending-saga of Michael Jackson’s alleged sexual abuse of young boys?  Jackson had been previously acquitted in court cases in 1990’s and the mid-2000’s. Comment below.

The MUAHS were presented just out one day after the Academy Awards reversed its decision to hand out the Oscar for Makeup and Hairstyling during commercial breaks.

They had previously announced that it would present the categories of: cinematography, film editing, live action short, and make-up and hair during commercials and then later playback the acceptance speeches later in the broadcast.  However, due to the uproar of that decision, it was quickly reversed and now all categories, per usual, will be presented on-air.

So, what do you think of Y&R wins last night in the Daytime category?  Do the characters of Genoa City look the best in daytime? Share your thoughts via the comment section below.
