Jensen Buchanan Makes Her Y&R Debut As Elise Moxley & Bombshell The Judge Had An Affair With Victor!

On Monday’s episode of The Young and the Restless, fans of Another World got a very special treat when Jensen Buchanan returned to the world of daytime drama in her new recurring role on the number one soap opera as Judge Elise Moxley,

Buchanan played twins Vicky and Marley Hudson on the now defunct NBC soap opera, plus Sarah Gordon on One Life to Live, and Melissa Bradford on General Hospital.  This is Jensen’s first soap role since 2002, and she is  already playing an integral part in a key plot!

Today, viewers learned that Victor (Eric Braeden) and Adam (Justin Hartley) conspired to keep the appeals Judge (Moxley) from throwing the book at Adam!  Victor was holding something over Elise’s head.  Turns out thanks to Nikki (Melody Thomas Scott) outing her secret in Adam’s hospital room, it seems like Elise was having an extra-marital affair while married to her husband, Senator Moxley.

But Nikki is the one who next gets a bombshell from Elise!  Clearly not liking Nikki’s tone, Elise says the affair was with Victor!

Watchthe  scene from Jensen’s first episode of Y&R after the jump!  Then let us know; what you think of Jensen’s not-so-nice character?  And how do you think her relationships with Nikki, Adam, and Victor will play itself out? Is there an Elise and Nikki catfight in the works? Comment below!

Now, that was good stuff!!
I liked that..
Y&R has become very good since J&S were fired, I stay awake now, haven’t nodded out once since Pratt came on ..
Only one I need to FF to avoid using my barf bag is Devon..
He;s gotta go to Siberia.
I wish Jean and Shelly would have given Tucker the Billions, then we would have a great actor still with Y&R and giving Victor a run for his life, or money ..
((the billions was a total waste on Devon))

I’m waiting for the next disaster!!
Adam will be free; let the games begin !!

WOW – you are easily entertained – I bet plastic bags drifting in the wind gives you pause to watch….

You can lay off the personal insults Bart. su0000 was just expressing an opinion same as you just did. I’ve been watching Y&R for almost 30 years and Chuck Pratt doesn’t hold a candle to the painful to watch Lynn Marie Latham years of Clear Springs, the reliquery, Nikki and Jack’s state Senate runs, and Brad’s out of nowhere past life. Now THAT was some bad Y&R. I’ve come to the realization that with Pratt at the helm, we’re never going to get back the Bill Bell storytelling and character depth we’re used to seeing but at least for me… Read more »

I’ve seen you post your “opinion” on another Y&R soap site. It has turned into the nothing but whining about how bad you think the soap is now. Which is fine but no need to take it out on other commenters who have a different opinion.

[Chloe Mitchell aka Katherine “Kate” Tina Valentine.] Magic was created when Riley, Olivia, and Isabelle Jones were cast to portray Cordelia “Delia” Katherine Valentine Abbott. Jeanne Cooper had many scenes with the actors who played Delia. Yet Delia was killed so that another child would be named Katherine. Based on screen time alone Delia (death, trial, and gala) is shown from Billy’s and Victoria’s perspective. To marginalize the mother, in the death of her child in favor of the father, is incomprehensible when Chloe was the better parent. In the aftermath of Delia’s death, Chloe deserves better representation. A Mitchell/Abbott… Read more »

I completely agree with you about the character of Chloe and how Delia was only killed to further the Villy coupling. It was also done to sever the tie between Chloe and Billy b/c there was still a fanbase that wanted Chilly (Chloe & Billy) to get another shot.

I believed Chilly had great chemistry but I always saw the writing on the wall and just rooted for Chloe as a character to get her own s/l and love interest.

There is no indication that Adam was offered a plea deal before trial, for a lighter sentence, that was rejected outright. Adam, believing Delia’s death was an accident, threw himself on the mercy of the court with a jury trial and lost.

Very happy to see Jensen on Y&R. AW was my first story. But how ho hum is this! Victor has something on her? Victor has something on everyone. Nothing at all new here yet. My hope right now is that she and Nikki volley back in forth. And those scenes would be best played out with the two of them dressed to the nines and bumping into each other in front of the mirror in the powder room.

… but what happened to her face?!?

I havent seen the episode, just the picture on here, but whoa!!! I love Jensen, but her face is seriously distorted!! Her eyes are slanted so far upwards!! It pains me to say this, but she looks like a younger version of that “cat woman ” Jocelyn Wildenstein. She has not been.acting for 13 years!! Whatever would possess her to have THAT much work done?? She is a beautiful woman!!

When did Victor have the affair? Recently?

I wonder the same DAMN thing. When exactly was Victor carrying on with this woman?? We’ve had NO hint that he has been running around on Nikki. I admire the creativity here but not the inconsistency. Victor has been MANY things over the years —- manipulative, domineering, controlling, etc. However, he has NEVER been a womanizer running around carrying on meaningless affairs with women. I can only recall one instance where a happily married Victor cheated on Nikki — His affair with Ashley in the mid 80’s that resulted in a 15 year love triangle between Nikki/Victor/Ashley. In every other… Read more »

At the beginning he told Nikki they were not together. She was married to Jack Abbott at the time and he & Ashley were divorced.

I like this actress and hope she is put on contract. I dont remember her being on GH but I do remember her on OLTL. She could pass for Sharon’s older sister! Anyway, she is right smack in the dab of everything. They should make the Moxley’s a new power family. They need to recast her husband if they do it. He is a good actor but he doesnt hold up against Jack and Victor and he doesnt have that soapy, powerful look of a senator/rich guy. Sebastian Roché who plays Jerry Jax on and off on GH would be… Read more »

Timmm, Great insight, It would be SO nice for Sharon to FINALLY have some family of her own in her corner. Then The Newman’s wouldn’t be the only powerful game in town. The writer have water down The Abbotts SO much with adding Phyllis and Billy has been a snore. What about David Mason Daniels (he was on Capital) he would be about the right age? I love Roche but since he has the accent I am not sure he could pull it off.

I love the way Y & R is going lately. I think the only story I pass on or mute is the baby stuff. It is boring . I’m happy to see J. Buchanan back. She was always such a great actress.

Tedious, plot-driven drek – This show just keeps getting more and more ludicrous and difficult to watch for this 30+ year viewer.

I don’t watch Y&R anymore but it’s cool seeing Jensen on a soap again. I liked her on AW.

I think having Jensen on is fantastic. I only wish they would get rid of the dead wood characters so characters like this one that could be rounded and interesting and add to plots could be allowed to interact with the characters that fans love and want to watch. This show has TOO many characters that folks don’t want to see.

Long time viewer; have absolutely no insights into most of the information included in these comments. I watch, but had never taken it too seriously until, around February, when the roof fell in. Then, I felt angry with the writers. A couple of the present storylines are somewhat interesting, however, the Neil thing, the Music Box thing, the Sharon baby thing, the Jack/Kelly thing, the Noah/Lucas thing, and the fact that Adam’s car accident is still being staged as a hit and run without any proper vetting of the incident itself leaves me cold. I fast forward a great deal… Read more »

All My Children and Guiding Light Vet, Gil Rogers Passes Away

Gil Rogers, who played one of the all-time most dastardly villains in soaps on All My Children and was the on-screen father to the one and only Reva Shayne (Kim Zimmer) on Guiding Light, has died at age 87.

News came via his daughter, Amanda Rogers on her Facebook page, relating that Gil passed away on March 2nd.

The actor had played Tad (Michael E. Knight) and Jenny’s (Kim Delaney) father, Ray Gardner on All My Children from 1977-1978 making multiple appearance though 2001, then later as Hawk Shayne on Guiding Light from 1985-1992 making multiple appearance through 2009.

Gil also appeared on Another World, Search for Tomorrow and The Doctors.

In her post, Amanda wrote: “Gil Rogers died this morning. As you all know, my dad was awesome. He was my best friend, confidant, mentor and just an awesome dad. He came to pick me and  Charlotte Whitaker Zdanowski up at clubs at 2AM in our teens to keep us safe, and drank bourbon with me every day since moving out here 2 years ago. He was welcoming and kind, funny and gregarious, a shameless flirt and a fierce protector. He loved his dinners with grandkids and endured animated movies and discussions about pokemon. And I miss him so terribly already. He died in his sleep, without pain or fear. I am so grateful to have had such a great father and to have spent these past 2 years with him every day.”

Check out this vintage scene below from All My Children where Ray played by Rogers blows up the Martin house.

Chris Harrison In First Interview Since ‘Bachelor’ Controversy Says He Wants To Be Back as Host; But GMA’s Michael Strahan Says Apology was a “Surface Response”

Thursday’s Good Morning America featured the highly-publicized first interview with ‘Bachelor’ franchise host and executive producer, Chris Harrison, since he stepped away from the show following his controversial remarks on current Bachelor contestant Rachel Kirkconnell, amid the airing of a season that has seen the first-ever Black male lead of the reality series, Matt James.

Speaking with GMA co-host, Michael Strahan, Harrison spoke of remarks he made during his interview with ex-Bachelorette Rachel Lindsay on Extra that sparked the firestorm.

Harrison admitted the words he spoke to Lindsey were “in a manner that perpetuates racism,” adding “I am an imperfect man I made a mistake and I own that. I believe that mistake doesn’t reflect who I am or what I stand for.”

 

The incident began when photos surfaced on social media of Kirkconnell at an Old South-themed party that she attended back in 2018, along with allegations she “liked” many Instagram posts that were racist in nature, and what many viewed as Harrison coming to her defense in this time of what he then called “cancel culture”.

On GMA, Chris expressed: “Antebellum parties are not OK,  Past, present, future, knowing what that represents is unacceptable.”

He also apologized to Lindsay, who had to shut down her Instagram account because of viral vitriol being sent her way over the incident with Harrison, adding this message to the public, “Anyone who is throwing hate towards Rachel Lindsay, please stop. It’s unacceptable.”

As to how he is trying to make amends, Harrison shared: “I made a mistake and I own that, Racism, oppression, these are big dynamic problems and they take serious work. I am committed to that work.”  The longtime Bachelor host then announced he is working with race educator Dr. Eric Dyson who has taught him about the idea of “counsel, not cancel”.

Chris says he plans to be back hosting the reality-dating series, expressing:  “I plan to be back. I want to be back.  This interview is not the finish line. There is much more work to be done.”

Following the exclusive, Michael Strahan described his conversation with Chris Harrison stating: “His apology is his apology, but it felt like it got nothing more than a surface response on any of this. Obviously, he is the man who wants to clearly stay on the show, but only time will tell if there is any meaning behind his words.”

So, what do you think of Chris Harrison’s responses during his first interview since the controversy? Should he return to hosting The Bachelor franchise? Comment below. But first check out his GMA exclusive.

GH’s Wes Ramsey Makes Statement on Criticism, Social Media, and Professionalism

General Hospital’s Wes Ramsey, who portrays polarizing character, Peter August on the ABC daytime drama series, responded to a recent take on his role from cast mate, Tristan Rogers (Scorpio) when a video made its way through social media.

The video was from a Cameo appearance, where Rogers offered an assessment of the Peter August storyline and expressed that while he knows Ramsey is a strong actor, he felt he was “wrong for the character” being that Peter was the son of the evil Faison played by Anders Hove.

Rogers also came to the defense of Ramsey and shared: “Don’t be too hard on Wes Ramsey. He’s got himself into a horrible storyline, and the storyline is the fault of the show. What they’ve literally done is they’ve painted themselves into a corner, and they don’t know how to get out of it.”

Currently, Peter’s story is front and center on GH with his wedding to Maxie (Kirsten Storms), and the fallout from all of the character’s dirty deeds.

Now Ramsey took to his Instagram account to address what transpired and his thoughts on the perils of social media, professionalism and acting, expressing: “Actors are storytellers, shapeshifters, chameleons. We’re also in the business of cultivating trust bc that’s how the best work is brought to life. We have to trust our imaginations, our instincts. We have to trust our fellow actors, because without them, there’s no scene to play. In the collaborative efforts of bringing any show to life, we also have to trust our directors each day to steer the arch of our story (like a conductor with a symphony) & trust our writers who are tasked with composing the symphonies we play out. I came up in a world of classical theater, where trusting the play, text, story is essential to the tightrope balancing act of making magic.  You will never hear me critique (on any public platform) the people responsible for the creative opportunities I enjoy each day. Without the trust of my writers, directors, producers & fellow actors, it would be impossible to live out my dreams. My job (& my only job) is to bring fearlessness, playfulness & passionate conviction to what has been created for me. My aim is to stretch myself (beyond the limits of where I think my boundaries may lye) each time I’m entrusted with material that allows those boundaries to be tested.

 

Every actor must believe they are the right person for their part or they will never achieve their potential, let alone surpass it. I was raised a gentleman & have two wonderful parents to thank for that, however, my polite personality (while rendering me easy to get along with on set) should have little bearing on my caliber of performance nor my castability as a professional.  I am leery of the pitfalls of social media & believe there are advantages to maintaining some mystery (even as a public figure) but I will always defend & protect what I hold dear (my job & my career) when they are publicly challenged, especially by those closest to me, whom I love & respect. Please know I bear no ill will. As a society, we are all still learning the full ramifications of living in an internet dominated culture. To all my many fans out there who offer encouragement & support, I hear you & am grateful for you. I’m having a blast… 🙂. Onward we go.”
