Genie Francis spoke with the New York Post over the weekend, and discussed her return to daytime this Friday as Genevieve Atkinson on The Young and the Restless!

In addition, the soap legend talked about the state of the entire soap genre from it’s heyday when she and Tony Geary were at the height of their popularity as Luke and Laura on GH. Here are a few excerpts!

Genie on her new Y&R character who is said to be the mother of the “murdered” Cane Ashby: “She is driven by a need for revenge and has developed sociopathic tendencies, shall we say. It is really fun for me. God knows I’ve done plenty of soap — but I’ve never gotten to do anything like that ever.  I did ingénue much longer than anybody has a right to with Laura.  This role is hard, a challenge, and I’m learning more about myself as an actress.”

Genie on the demise of soaps and it’s future… in particular the rumors that GH would be next in line to get canceled: “It does make you worry because there were rumors about All My Children and then, like, six weeks later it was real. So it makes you wonder. I think (Y&R) it’s probably going to be the last man standing.”

I can’t wait to see Genie in her new role onY&R. I think playing a role unlike anything else she has done will be very exciting. Now that Caine had a sociopathic brother, will shake everyone up. But,Colin is really the evil one, unless the real Caine is playing his nutty brother. Hmm…something to think about……..

Well, all you fans, I am vindicative. I have been saying right along that Caine was really alive and pretending to be his crazy brother who was killed on the church steps. Welcome Genie Francis to finish this story. Yeah1…

Nancy Lee Grahn Kicks-Off Her 25th Year as General Hospital’s Alexis; Thanks Fans & Shares: “What a Ride”

She’s one of the best of the best!  And on Saturday, Nancy Lee Grahn acknowledged the start of her 25th year as Alexis Davis on ABC’s General Hospital. 

Nancy, who daytime fans first loved on One Life to Live and then Santa Barbara, came to Port Charles and quickly became one of its leading mainstays.

On Twitter, marking the occasion, Nancy thanked her fans with this: “Wow! I start my 25th year on  @generalhospital  today. What a ride. It’s been one of my greatest pleasures to be connected to & supported by such a beautiful, loving, loyal #gh audience. We are and have always been in this together. I hope you can feel my most sincere virtual hug.”

Currently in story, Alexis just lost the new love of her life Neil and on Friday’s episode of GH, Alexis was blamed for his death by Neil’s brother when she tried to attend his memorial service.  Later, she landed at the Floating Rib with Valentin – but when he got into it with Ned and stepped outside, Alexis ordered a drink.  Not a good sign for this recovering alcoholic, and all this came on the heels of Alexis learning she has osteoporosis.

Through the years, story after story, beat after beat, we are lucky to have Nancy on our screens with her consistently riveting and honest performances.

What has been your favorite Alexis storyline through the years?  And … make sure to wish Nancy a ‘happy 25th’ via the comment section below.

Y&R Alum Max Ehrich Says He Was Blindsided By Breakup with Demi Lovato & Found Out Via Tabloid

For the first time, since the apparent split of former The Young and the Restless star, Max Ehrich(Ex-Fenmore) and pop singer, Demi Lovato, one of them has made a public comment in an usual but effective way.

Ehrich took to his Instagram Story on his Instagram account and stated “Imagine finding out status of your relationship through a tabloid.” That was followed by, “While (you’re) in the middle of filming a biopic movie about a pastor in a Christian church whose intention of the film is to help people. God bless.”

In an Instagram post following the split, Max shared “Jesus loves you.” in a typewriter font with a white background on Instagram, captioning the post with a heart, prayer hands and dove emoji. The comments on it were turned off and that is when he shared the same message on his Instagram Story.

From these posts it would seem that Ehrich was unaware of the dissolution of his engagement to Lovato which happened while he has been away in Atlanta shooting the movie Southern Gospel.  Additionally from reports, it seems Lovato called off the relationship.

But, a source told PEOPLE, “Demi made Max aware that the relationship was over and it was going to come out in the press.”

Lovato also made a post on her Instagram Story not addressing the break-up directly in which she zoomed on what it said on her t-shirt “dogs over people.” In addition, her engagement ring was absent from her left ring finger in the very short clip that is no longer on her IG Story,

So, do you think Max was blindsided? Did he know? As usual with Hollywood break-ups, there are two sides to every story.  Comment below.
