Check this out! CBS tweeted this afternoon a fantastic shot from a new and first CBS photo shoot with Genie Francis and Daniel Goddard. Genie looks amazing! We can’t wait as her new alter-ego Genevieve, Cane’s mum,  to hit the ground running on The Young and the Restless, and how she plays into the canvas.

Fantastic news for daytime in a very difficult time in the genre, to welcome a true soap icon, the legendary Francis back to the fold.   Brilliant move from the number one soap on the air.

Hope you are all gearing up for the Cane story and what is really going down?  We all want some answers! Looks like Y&R is ready to give some and more.

Let’s face it…there is only one Genie Francis, and as much as I will miss Susan Lucci, Erika Slezak, and Robin Strasser, Genie is herself a true daytime legend. Haven’t watched “Young and Restless” since the mid ’90’s, but I am coming back to it big time. The day Genie debuts we are having a “I Dream of Genie” party celebrating Miss Francis’ return to daytime.

“Next Y&R will be the Definition of SOAP if they cast Susan Lucci as Julia Newman”

Wow…hard to imagine that actually happening, but I definitely agree. I’m happy enough with Genie alone, but adding both Francis and Lucci would make ‘Y&R’ THE definition of soap. With that much power, and some fine writing, I can’t imagine anything else would even come close.

I think Susan Lucci is very over-rated, IMO.

Will love to have her back on daytime, but the picture just confirms it – she’s too young to play Cane’s mom – there is only 9 years difference between Genie and Daniel – and she looks younger than her age. And 16 years between Genie and TR – it’s gonna be strange. Sorta like Jessica Leccia being the mother of all those fully grown Ford brothers on OLTL….

Eric Braeden On Y&R’s Diminishing Vets: “My Plea To Management: We Have Lost Some All-Time Fan Favorites!”

Outspoken, direct, and wanting what’s best for the show in which he has become a part of its iconic brand, Y&R’s Eric Braeden (Victor) took to social media to let his feelings be known on the CBS soap operas decision to take Doug Davidson (Paul) off-contract, and not utilizing three-time Daytime Emmy winner, Christian LeBlanc (Michael), letting go of Greg Rikaart (Kevin), and the fact that Eileen Davidson (Ashley) has made the decision to exit the series.

Over the last few weeks, fans have been outraged at the news of the series longest cast member, Doug Davidson being taken off-contract and bumped to recurring with this change happening back in January of this year.

Eric Braeden tweeted: “I normally don’t express my opinions reg the casting on Y&R! That’s the privilege of those who produce the show! However, this is a time when I have to make an exception! I’m still on vacation, hence my comment comes a little late: to let DOUGIE DAVIDSON GO is an egregious mistake.  My plea to management: we have lost some all time fan favorites! D DAVIDSON has been with the show for, i think, 39 years, and people have loved him! Same for CHRISTIAN Le BLANC, GREG RIKART, Eileen DAVIDSON (who left on her own volition)!”

As for Braeden’s statement it has gotten wide pick-up via the daytime media and tremendous support on social media from fans of The Young and the Restless.

So, what do you think about what Eric had to say about the frustration of losing, or the show not using ,some beloved and veteran cast members? Share your thoughts via the comment section below.
