Victoria Rowell (Ex-Drucilla, Y&R) is in the news, but this time not for one of her new projects, but for her personally.  Rowell is getting divorced from her husband of four years!  According to TMZ.com, “Victoria’s husband, collage artist and sculptor Radcliffe Bailey, filed to end their 4-year marriage.”

The entertainment news and gossip outlet went on to say that they had obtained the settlement agreement, which shows that Victoria and Radcliffe had a pre-nup so no money was on the line.  And, they had no kids, so it seems the divorce was pretty simple, with one caveat.”  According to the settlement, “Each agrees that he or she shall not in any manner disturb, bother, harass or otherwise interfere with the other party.”

The couples wedding four years ago was quite the event with motion picture star, Samuel M. Jackson walking Rowell down the aisle!   In a piece in the New York Times covering the union they said, “Victoria met Radcliffe Bailey in July 2007, while was on a book tour, and her packed schedule had no time for socializing. With a daughter from her first marriage and a son from her long relationship with the jazz musician Wynton Marsalis. Ms. Rowell said her dating life was ‘the desert — just enough water for inspiration.”
So, what do you think about Victoria’s marriage coming to the end?  Comment below!

Victoria looks way older now, she hasn’t aged well at all. She is only 54 years old. i still want her back, as drucilla. she caused to much trouble, they don’t want her back. too bad, she is a diva and very demanding. otherwise please recast drucilla right now. I cannot stand leslie, she is very annoying.

I wish they would get her back on Y&R. I loved the story of KSJ aka Neil did and so candid in SOD this coming month. Loved he gave a warm shout out to Victoria Rowell and said how he wished the show would of gave the fans Neil and Dru to route for. Anyway we fans can get her back. We will ever stop wishing. 😀

Nowadays, I don’t care too much for Victoria Rowell. When she was on Y&R, all VR did was act like an arrogant D-I-V-A behind-the-scenes. Her behind-the-scenes battles with Michelle Stafford were TRULY EPIC!!!!! I can see and understand why VR’s soon-to-be-ex-husband filed for divorce…supposedly, VR is NOT an easy person to live with. When Tonya Lee Williams played Olivia on Y&R back in the day, I had heard that there was (and still is) no love lost between her and VR. At all. Victoria Rowell aka SOAP DIVA GONE WILD…LOL!!!!!

LOL. funny post. I’d love to see an expose on the behind the scenes, and, I mean… a fun expose…. Y&R could use all the publicity they can… to stop this ship from sinking i had to google her.. championing.. her STAR… she “lived” her persona in Genoa City… from 1990 to 2007 which was a mere 5 years ago… doesn’t it seem much longer than that? what a time for Michelle Stafford to come clean ———- with so much missing from Y&R… and nothing to lose why not re-hire Victoria Rowell… as Drucilla moneybags got cashola via take Devon… Read more »

GH’s Charles Shaughnessy On Victor’s Villainy: “He’s Just Making Trouble for All of the Fan Favorites! He’s Just Making Their Lives Miserable”

In pretty short order, Victor Cassadine’s re-emergence in Port Charles, and now played by daytime vet, Charles Shaughnessy, has caused plenty of havoc on ABC’s General Hospital.  Shaughnessy, who was much beloved as Shane Donovan on Days of our Lives, debuted on GH back in September of 2021.

You can look at the body count, or the people Victor has under his thumb, to know the impact he is making on the canvas.

In a new interview in the latest issue of Soap Opera Digest (on newsstand now), Shaughnessy weighs-in on being the treacherous Cassadine.

 

Charles shared: “I mean, he’s just making trouble for all of the fan favorites! He’s just making their lives miserable.  He’s the guy who killed Luke Spencer.  He’s the guy who put Anna in jail and tried to break up her relationship with Valentin.  He’s just miserable to Holly. He’s just dreadful! But it’s such great fun, I mean, the more dreadful the better, really. He’s the villain you love to hate.”

So, how and just when Victor will get his comeuppance is on everyone’s mind in the viewing audience as well as for characters such as: Laura (Genie Francis), Valentin (James Patrick Stuart), Lucy (Lynn Herring), Holly (Emma Samms), Anna (Finola Hughes), Ava (Maura West), Selina (Lydia Look), and many more.

Victor’s evil deeds seemed to reach new heights during the Holly Sutton storyline. Now the question is, who will he go after next, given what would seem to be his quest for the necklace containing diamonds from the Ice Princess?  Stay tuned.

What do you think of Charles’ portrayal of Victor? Who do you hope takes down Victor? Comment below.
