The hearings have been on, no soaps, and I havent missed Y&R ONE bit! I hope Eric is right AND THE SHOW STARTS BECOMING INTERESTING AGAIN!

Here is my impeachment list for Y&R:
Theo
Devon
Fake Hillary [Must be that name!]
Messa [Tessa!]
Rey

Here is my reinstatement list:
Billy-Who is this guy?
Phyllis-Grow up!
Elena-She is a talented actress. They wasted her on GH and now they are wasting her on Y&R!

Timmm, I love that Theo is atop your list and I agree with everything you say, though I’d swap Rey for Elena.. she is a good actress but wasted on Dreary Devon. Maybe toss in Chance too… He couldn’t act his way out of a paper bag. An actor should be more than nice hair.

Awww, come on, you’d run your fingers through Chance’s hair!

No way, Timmm. Hair-wise, I’ll take Nick or Kyle any day. Or night. How about Theo’s rat’s nest? Surgical gloves, please!

LOL, Soaphound—I agree—love Nick’s hair—and, I’m starting to like Kyle’s pompador-do. It’s back!! My husband actually sports a mini pomp!! I don’t know if I like it yet. LOL.

LOL, T, —I do not like Chance; nor his fake hair. Abby is getting on my nerves as well, lately—-she never seems to learn her lesson with men. Then again, I am not too ‘fond’ of bed-hopping. One’s enough for me—HaHa. I suppose I am well-satisfied! PRRRR.
Their unsteamy interlude did nothing for me–neither of them is sexy—–at this juncture; the sexiest woman on soaps is Ava Jerome–and her counterpart? Nikolas. I don’t know what it is about this guy—he just…well, you know!! LOL.

C., I’m with you on Ava & naughty Nikolas. Can’t wait to see where it goes (besides the boudoir). That and Nelle returning are the things keeping me happy. I’m on Peter Puke overload. Now he wants to off Jason and Spinelli? Enough of this dodo bird!

Celia
Guest

Yes!! I admire Nelle her spunk and in-your-face audacity. She definitely has something to say—especially to Carly—looking forward to seeing that. I do agree with Joe, though—Is Nelle back for good? If so, let’s get the plots moving with Wiley, Brad, Willow as Nina’s daughter ( and possibly Sasha’s twin)—-I don’t feel as foolish knowing someone else thinks Willow is Nina’s. Jimh had agreed with me, too. These stories should finally have an ending. I’ve missed a few episodes, yet I didn’t really miss a thing. It seems that, except for the mafia-wars, everything is frozen in place. I also… Read more »

I like Chance and Abby together. Look at it this way, remember Lulu on GH used to play Abby on Y&R. What a disaster! I think this Abby is much better. Bed hopping? Not a fan but its a soap! I look at Abby, Phyllis and Chelsea as the female Three Stooges! Its funny to watch them bumble over each other! Sexiest female. Ava isnt a bad choice but she is a drunk! I cannot beleive you like NuNick. I cannot stand him. He ruined the character’s comeback! Also, he has no sex appeal. Jax is the man! I like… Read more »

LOL, T—-Nikolas is not my type–I like the tall, broad-shouldered type. But, as I said on another comment, there’s something about Marcus—the Italian half of him stirs the imagination and senses—-..can’t put my finger on it. It’s one of things, I guess–Marcus has the goods for me. To each his/her own, I guess. Those full, well-shaped lips beckon. I’ll stop there—-I’m a good girl–HaHa. As far as Abby, I know you’ve always liked her. I do, too—-far cry from Emme. But, the PTB are not doing her justice, either. She is reduced to a mere failure with men—her possibilities keep… Read more »

I know we may be in a minority right now, Celia, but Marcus gets my blood, uh, boiling too. I’d spend a week in that hair alone. And his voice is sexy, too, like my great passion, Billy Miller. And Maura West get keeps getting better… this story seems to have REALLY lit a fire in her. Can you blame her? I, too, like Melissa Ordway but feel that Abby is backsliding into yet ANOTHER man with secrets. And the nuChance actor is not on her level, either.

Hey, Soaphound, So glad someone sees what I see. Ahhhh—Billy, where art thou, Billy?!?!?! I know what you mean….yum!! No one compares to Maura—I have such a girl-crush on her—as I do on Stafford. But, it’s slowly fading. Msura is on my pedestal now. LOL. I actually feel badly for Abby. She deserves better. I do not like this Chance. Do you remember the last actor who played Chance? He was another Adonis—-this new guy is too “Tarzan-ish” looking—in a bad way—“Ain’t” ‘gonna’ last either. Then, there’s Kyle. It seems that the writers took a page from my book, with… Read more »

HaHa, T—-harmless words— I vocalize my thoughts—- Captivating one’s interest doesn’t always have to be good looks….a great personality, good sense of humor etc. go a long way, albeit Marcus/Nikolas is simply too sexy. We do admire works of art—not always perfect. Sometimes, the imperfection is what makes someone or something unique—eg. LA GIOCONDA—not a beautiful woman—thin lips, aquiline nose—yet, that mysterious smile draws the admirer in. Yes?? More to the point, as jaded as Ava is, Nikolas is a wolf. Reminds me of Little Red Riding Hood ( song by Sam the Sham) which my husband has been singing… Read more »

You are such an old soul! Pulling Sam the Sham out of thin air! Great stuff! Ava is going to tease Nick into cheating and or hire a women to seduce him in order to inherit the Cassadine fortune!

I’m glad you mentioned this, Timmm. For a minute, I thought Sam the Sham referred to Sam Morgan’s private eye abilities. My bad.

Celia
Guest

Oh, Lordy-Lord, Soaphound!! I just noticed your post. Too funny—very fitting, eh? Sam The Sham Morgan. It took Epiphany to shake Sam out of her teen-age-head-in-the-clouds. A mother in her forties acting like a lovesick …uh, “puppy” in the first throes of adolescent love.
Private eye? Her eye’s on Jason—it seems everyone (and everything) else is of no conswquence. Mamma mia.

I guess I AM an old soul, T—thanks to my Gran who is still a flower-child at heart. I grew up listening to her music—60’s and 70’s—including THE DOOR, VANILLA FUDGE, QUEEN, BLACK SABBATH, IRON BUTTERFLY, FREE etc.– and, much of the 80’s–all of it!! As far as Hunter King, I did read about her new venture. I hope she stays on Y&R—-I am finally fond of the character. Summer has grown up—selfless, at last. Perhaps she and Kyle will take off on a business trip together ( for the time of Hunter’s filming) —or taking off to places unknown… Read more »

Can you believe WE finally like Summer and she may leave??? She has grown up. I still dont like this Kyle but what can you do. Lola can do much better. Not a fan of Rey BUT, I do like the way he laid into Kyle. Good scene! Have a LOVEly Valentines Day!

Celia
Guest

I have never liked Kyle, T—-except for his hair. I don’t find him oh-so-hunky either, albeit many do.
Rey is slowly ‘coming around’ for me—-a big jump from the character (Dario) he played on Days. However, I am in agreement with many who said that both Y&R and DOOL are fahhlliiing—downhill trend, if you ask me.

PS…I like the idea of having Hayley Erin back, T. Great idea!!

Yesssss, Timmmy!! Every word, every phrase, every thought is on target. You know how much I love Stafford, but her character is now bordering on the ridiculous. Theo needs to go….Devon is of no import except waiting around until Colin is “captureed”?? Bah!! Billy makes me sick…..spoiled brat that he is. He really needs to grow up. So far, Victor is the only one who makes the show bearable ( and Mariah)….I hope Tessa never comes back For interest sake: I said, from the onset, that Kyle and Lola would not last—-it was a passing fancy for Kyle because Lola… Read more »

As always, Celia, you read my mind, though I admit I had hopes for Lola and Kyle. Maybe Phyllis will grow up now that Sharon’s cancer seems to have broadsided her. She stepped up to Jack’s addiction…maybe this will bring out the “human” side that Nick claims she possesses. Now, more of the Amanda debacle with the ex showing up! Fast Forward, please.

I found Lola and Kyle too passive, Soaphound. I did not get the ‘bite’; the furor, if you will, of two young people madly in love—Perhaps, TPTB saw the lack of chemistry between them, thus they changed the “pace”—- comparatively speaking; Summer and Kyle have always had that mysterious, intangible, yet tangible IT factor . Some actors, when brought together in a certain role, the magnetism is palpable. The passion was so evidently elusive between Lola and Kyle. I only hope Summer does not go back to her bratty, elitist ways. I like her new ‘righteous’ ( that’s a joke-aha),… Read more »

Is Summer out the door? Well, maybe Hunter King is. It was just announced she got the lead role in a new pilot for ABC called “Prospect.” Its a pilot so maybe they back burner her until she finds out if the series is picked up. Maybe they recast and hire the old Abby, Hayley Erin?

He is the only guy I know that just blasts them and gets away with it!! I adore him for that he is right I wish he could wave a magic wand and correct all the wrongs that have been done to a soap that he loves!! I don’t always agree with him on issues but I have never doubted he cares very much about this soap ! My only request is grab somebody and call them your sweetheart he had such off the charts chemistry with Sharon Case I sooo want him to be involved with her cancer storyline… Read more »

He is one of the few actors that owns his character he breathes it you hardly know where Braeden ends and Victor begins he should be always leading story just as Jack and Paul you need as a hw need to get those three front and center then build your characters around them

I totally agree with you about Victor and Sharon. When I started watching Victor and Dru were the only ones in her corner.

Mark you missed wonderful storylines I never saw two people who played off each other i hate that they don’t share the screen together anymore I hate that we can’t work out our problems and move on you are cheating a audience of a great relationship I for one am very sad ! Braeden needs to stop this in its tracks an give my girl a good hug ! You can find it on you tube when case won supporting in 1999 and him hugging her he loved her dearly ! I want that back

So hope this is true! Blast me if you like, but I’ve had enough of the Kyle and Theo Show! Jack and Victor they are not! Let us get to know the characters on the canvas, but introducing a boat load of new ones!!

Lew, you are SO RIGHT! I feel like a broken record but the powers that be apparently don’t care. Theo is a scene-downer like Devon and we need to get back to our core characters. Start writing for the Baldwin/Fisher family, more Jack and Traci, Gloria, Fen, Paul & Christine.

Y&R had hit bottom in my opinion…I quit watching years ago and started watching again when Sally Sussman and Kay Alden was rehired, I even stuck with it during Mal Young which i wasn’t please when Sally and Kay were let go…Josh Griffith writing is DULLSVILLE…I will say it again till the day I die…I think the world of Mike Dobson (Music Director) but I do not care for Y&R background music if Y&R wanted to they could bring back all the old music score that meant the world to this show…The writing, directing and music are lacking so the… Read more »

B&B’s Jacqueline MacInnes Wood Talks Motherhood, Steffy’s Opioid Addiction and Love Life on ‘Home & Family’

Daytime Emmy Award winner and a nominee again this year for Outstanding Lead Actress in a Daytime Drama Series, The Bold and the Beautiful’s Jacqueline MacInnes Wood (Steffy Forrester) chatted with Home & Family.

During her segment, Jacqui discussed becoming a mom again for the second time and welcoming her new son, Lenix, and balancing raising two boys with playing the day to day perils of Steffy Forrester.

As soap fans know, last year’s storyline where Steffy became addicted to painkillers provided her with meaty material which landed her as one of the frontrunners for next week’s 48th annual Daytime Emmy Awards to air on Friday night, June 25th on CBS.

MacInnes Wood became emotional when telling how Steffy’s addiction intervention helped others, relating: “I was flooded with all of these messages, and this one woman reached out to me and she said her son… it still gets me emotional … but her son was addicted and that intervention was the same thing with her family, and it touched me in such a way and she said luckily that he is sober now.”

Jacqui also talked about Steffy’s on-screen love life …. and her real-life love and husband, Elan Ruspoli.

You can watch the full interview segment here.

So, what do you think of Jacqueline raising a new baby boy, being a mom to the other, while playing Steffy’s emotional storylines? Comment below.

B&B’s Don Diamont Granted Restraining Order Against Alleged Stalker

The Bold and the Beautiful’s Don Diamont (Bill Spencer) was granted a temporary restraining order in L.A. County Superior Court against 37-year-old Quincy Adams; who Diamont says has been harassing him and his family since back in January.

According to court documents obtained by TMZ, Diamont alleges that Adams took to YouTube saying Don was a Satanist and responsible for COVID, 9/11, and the Iraq war.  In addition, Adams claimed to be connected to him some way from birth.

It was then that Don grew increasingly concerned when the man shared online that he knew where Diamont and his family lived.

Then came June 2nd, when Adams showed up at their front gate and Don received a call from his wife, Cindy.  The police handled Adams from there, but Don was very worried that Adams might harm him, or his family, so he was granted the temporary restraining order against him.

We wish Don and his family nothing but safety in the days ahead.

So what do you think about the claims and actions of Adams on Diamont? Comment below.
