Now that Theo (Tyler Johnson)brought to Genoa City some key intel he shared with Sally Spectra (Courtney Hope) to payback Kyle Abbott (Michael Mealor), The Young and the Restless is adding another character to the mix.

Enter Elizabeth Leiner in the role of Tara Locke, who over the last several episodes has been much talked about.

Look for Tara to arrive on the canvas on the March 1st episode of the CBS Daytime drama series, as she shares a colorful past with Kyle including that they presumably share a child together … a son named Harrison.

Apparently, the two had an affair when Tara was married to ruthless businessman, Ashland Locke.

The role is said to be recurring as of now.

Leiner has appeared in Lifetime’s Drop Dead Diva and Criminal Minds: Beyond Borders, also Suburban Swingers Club and Nanny Killer among other credits.

OOHH here we go again-
Kyle is going to be lovey for his old love
and there will be baby drama..
Summer will be put aside, again.
And Phyllis will be mama-bear.
Same soap plot just different players.
It will be interesting, hopefully,
and we just might stay awake through an episode LOL
I’m not a Kyle and Summer fan, so let it roll.
oohh what is the age difference between Kyle and Tara?
((real-life and soap-life?))

Oh, Su000, why, why, WHY? Another blah character in the endless past of Kyle Abbott. They finally have a really good actor in the role and then sink him with Summer and a seemingly endless libido. Is this the ONLY plot they could regurgitate? And so many other characters remain unused. For shame!

When this new actor first arrived on the canvas as the new Kyle, I thought he was exciting, different, kind of a throwback to the old classic movies. When he was paired with Lola, he was on fire. They should have taken their time with their courtship. I loved Lola and her food truck! Kyle was funny and cute as the entitled rich boy trying to order a Cuban sandwich from the beautiful, street-wise, chef. It was their contrasts and differences which made them so interesting. Now that he’s with the forever petulant and sulky-Summer, he’s dull and bland.

You’re so right, Harry. I don’t know if it’s Summer dragging these guys down (look how great Matthew Atkinson is on B&B vs. how dull Summer’s Austin was) or the writers. But either way, they’re crippling some very promising young actors. Kyle and Lola were a real team.

I’m glad that I stopped watching this crap. 2020 made me realize that I have wasted too much time of my life on this lousy soap .

I’m upset, too, Annette. WHAT are they thinking? This past year has been one of the worst ever, and I started watching in 1973! I may soon take a page from your book.

Me also. They need to fire all the writers And hire some that know the past and can write for now. You just don’t realize how many fans you have lost!

Y&R needs to get it together! Too many new characters no one cares about and many existing characters left to drift at sea. I liked Sally Spectra on B&B, but not her Phyllis Summers 2.0! Adam.needs to be sent out of town permanently. He can’t be redeemed and is nothing but a big baby! Sharon needs to go back to therapy, because that chick is warped! And Theo, need i say more?? A future Adam,blaming everyone for his problems.

Another tired, auxiliary story about the dull duo of Kyle and Summer. Meanwhile, no Kevin, no Chloe, no Jill, Paul, Lauren, Michael, Nina, Traci, Ashley….why? Seems like they’re trying to clone B&B with all these under 40s’ stories. I’m not happy.

Courtney Hope is such a beautiful woman, but the hair and makeup people at Y&R take away that beauty daily with ridiculous hairdos and makeup and unflattering clothes and colors. Let Sally shine!!!

‘This Is Us’ Season 6 to have Midseason Premiere and 18 Episode Order as It Concludes

The beloved Pearson family drama This Is Us will end after its sixth and final season, and news today from NBC executives Susan Rovner and Frances Berwick revealed that when the show returns for its last run, it will have a midseason, not a fall, premiere date.

Add to that, the fact that the show will wrap with an 18-episode order.  The execs shared to TV reporters and outlets including Deadline: “We know that saying goodbye to the Pearsons is going to be hard enough. So what we wanted to do is honor the fans and get them as close to an uninterrupted run as we could, which is only possible in midseason,” said Berwick.

Susan Rovner expressed: That by starting the story midseason, it will help make the send-off “a great event for the fans to enjoy.” She went on to say, “I think in Dan’s (Fogelman) hands, it’s going to be fantastic.”

In response to the announced season six conclusion, creator Dan Fogelman tweeted: “Whoever casually first said ‘All good things must come to an end’ never had to end their favorite thing. While sad to have just 1 season left, also grateful to NBC for letting us end the show how, and when, we always intended. We’ll work hard to stick the landing.”

For the past five season the cast has featured: Milo Ventimiglia, Mandy Moore, Sterling K. Brown,Chrissy Metz, Justin Hartley, Susan Kelechi Watson and Chris Sullivan, and there are still two more episodes of the current season, until the season finale on May 25th in a special time 10 p.m. ET/PT.

So, are you ready to say goodbye to the story of Randall, Kevin, and Kate and the rest of the family? Comment below.

DAYS Jackée Harry Joins Freeform Comedy Pilot ‘Everything’s Trash’ in Recurring Role

Jackée Harry is one busy actress in Hollywood!  On the heels of learning that Harry has signed on more full-time on Days of our Lives in her role as Paulina, comes this bit of casting news.

Harry will join the cast of the Freeform comedy pilot, Everything’s Trash along with another notable actor, George Wallace.  Both will have recurring roles in the show should it go to series.

In story, Everything’s Trash follows Phoebe (Phoebe Robinson), a 30-something podcast star navigating her messy life. When her younger brother Jayden emerges as a leading politician, she’s forced to grow up, so she relies on her friends and close-knit family to help her figure out adulthood, since she doesn’t seem to have a clue. The series is inspired by Robinson’s book, “Everything’s Trash But It’s Okay.”

According to Variety, “Harry will star as Zora, Phoebe and Jayden’s mother. She and her husband are mid-Western transplants, but they have made a home in NY . They love and support their children equally, but truth be known, Zora acts (and dresses) younger than she is and straddles the line between “I’m my daughter’s mother” and “I’m my daughter’s best friend.”  Meanwhile, Wallace will play the role of Abraham, Phoebe and Jayden’s father and husband to Zora.

So, looking forward to hopefully seeing Jackée on a half-comedy sitcom at night, and doing her role on Days of our Lives? Comment below.
