She comes to Genoa City claiming to be Dullans wife who has no memory of her…Joe hired her to keep Dullan away from Avery but…never mind thats the Jake/Hayden/Ric/Liz story over at GH…lol

Notice, Y&R and GH both have identity stories that could come to the forefront in May. [Adam and Jason]

Although I think she’s a beautiful actress and I loved her on G. Light, I don’t get it. We just lost Courtney & Austin. We haven’t seen Mark Harding since New Year’s, so if we lost the people we love due to cut-back’s why are we bringing someone else aboard?

There is only one for her to be connect with;
Felicity and Victor … they are involved in the secret..

I like new characters so am looking forward to her 2 days …

suOO, you constantly say you like new characters and that you grow tired of the veteran characters. You seem to thrive on change.
Now please know I don’t mean this as an insult or dig at all, but could you have ADHD?

She was woefully miscast as Marah on GL (and got stuck with some awful storylines) but I did always think she could act. I sort of wondered what had happened to her; it’s been more than a decade and I don’t recall seeing any news of her—guest shots on nighttime, parts in movies, anything. There was a rumor a few years ago that she was going to replace Vail Bloom as why-can’t-I-think-of-Paul’s-daughter’s-name-right-now, but nothing came of it.

Didn’t watch GL at all, but it seems like people really like her. Maybe her stint will turn into longer than just 2 days if she makes a good impression. My guess is that she’ll be working with Victor or maybe even Jack for Jabot’s new fragrance. She could even have something to do with Cane taking over Chancellor.

I’m kinda bummed out. I always wanted and pictured her on Gh as Sarah Webber. I mean Elizabeth don’t have no family she’s always in other people drama what better to actually have a purpose.

I have a funny feeling that she”ll portray a recast Chloe, find out that “Gabriel” is really Adam with a new face and after exposing him to the world, try to kill him herself!

It said she’ll play a new character, not a recast!

This is out of context…..but, am I wrong in assuming that Hillary is putting on an act? I mean, she really cares what happens to Neil and is still in love with Devon? Regardless, I hope she and Devon are on their way out.
Also, for once, I agree with Victor….ugh! He is right about not telling Leslie anything….as far as Victor is concerned, she is the enemy.
