    Why is this being treated like a special guest star return? Unless someone lied earlier in the year, Jess was just taking a six month vacation to be a grandma…then she would return. It was never stated that she was fired or quit…now the story seems different. In any case, it will be good to have Jill back…I hope it is something dramatic and juicy as Jill is a core character and has ties to everyone. I hope it is a permanent return.

      Let’s keep in mind: when Jess left it was under Maria’s control and storyboard. Now she’s on Jill and Josh’s storyboard, which may leave Jill’s destiny in difference. Plus, Jess is continuing to continue commuting, so they have to accommodate that as well.

      ashlee, That’s exactly what I have been thinking as I have been reading similar comments.

      Totally agree. If this is news, then there is more to this that’s being glossed over or not being said. I mean, obviously there is something happening here behind the scenes that spelled out means that Jess is keeping her job. So, come out and say so.

      Glad to see Jill return I love Neil and Jack back working together. Jill is great with Kay. Victor needs to retire for good. I love Sharon and Adam back they are hot. I can’t wait for Drucilla to return to pay Phyllis back for throwing her off a cliff and Neil needs his women back

    Anything with Tristan Rogers! They had chemistry off the charts, but I doubt it will happen. 🙁

      No please do not pair her with another or former loser (Colin).

        Colin was Jill’s best pairing.

        Devoted Fan, I simply meant TRISTAN ROGERS. I do not care WHO he plays – Colin or Mr. Greenjeans – as long as he and Jess Walton are together – they were so good.

        “Jill and Colin”, I thought her best pairing was with Larry Wharton actually.

        Colin and Jill were great together. Humor, serious stuff, all of it great. If JG ignores that chemistry, what a waste.

    I’m sure she’s in cahoots with Colin with blackmailing Genevieve, prompting her leave! I’m happy that Jill is returning to Genoa City, I’ve missed her and Katherine’s bickering.

    Jill needs to come back and head up Chancellor Industries now that Neil will be going over to Jabot. She needs to come back guns a-blazing and ready to take charge like the strong woman she once was before LML & MAB ruined her. With any luck, new HW Josh Griffith can undo the silly “Lauren & Jill are sisters” connection.

    I for one am just glad Jess is back!!

      The story was silly, but I did like the friendship she shared with Lauren and Michael because of the story.

    Welcome home, Jess Walton and Jill Abbott! As she left after some major goings-on, I would like to see a new refreshed and restored Jill return to Genoa City. I want her to have a major story of her own. Not a desperate quickie marriage. Not a silly business deal. I want her to reconnect with her family, and let’s confirm and solidify those family ties, please. A Fenmore? Really? Why?

    To be honest I haven’t missed the character Jill being on the canvas. Maybe it was because MAB’s team changed the character so much that I felt the real Jill disappeared a long time ago. I disliked the the whole Jill is Lauren’s half sister idea. It was an insult to the show’s history and one I’m sure if William Bell Sr. was still around would never have happened. But I’m all about the storyline, so as long as JW is writing a good storyline for Jill then I will welcome her back, but if her storyline is as dull as it was in MAB’s time, then Jill is better off in the Outback.

    Storyline? Big duh here. Of Course we need Colin back with Jill.

    This is what i think sould happen: Lauren gets sick, very sick. She needs a blood transfusion so Jill goes to the hospital to save her “sister”…. the doctors reveals there is now way that Jill and Lauren could be sisters. Lauren dies. Michael falls for Avery, Fen goes nuts and wild and out of controland Jill finds out who she is. 🙂

      I’m all for finding a way to undo Jill’s ties to the Fenmores. As for Lauren, if the character were to die, she deserves a really dramatic exit. This is a woman who survived being buried alive, sweep out to sea, nurmerous kidnappings and torments, it would be anticlimaxtic if some germ/sickness did her in. I did see some chemistry between the characters Micheal and Avery, but the moment has passed I think because it looks they will be pairing her with Nick. I think Fen getting super rebellious and wild is plausible because Lauren has overprotected him all his life from crazy Shelia and Daisy- something in him should snap. As for Jill — to me she is and always will be a Foster, not a Chancellor, not a Fenmore, but a Foster.

    Such good news! I remember when Jess Walton first took over the role after Brenda Dickson departed the show, and I knew from her first scene that she would be the ultimate Jill. I just wish that MAB had not undone the Catherine/Jill mother/daughter story, which was one of the greatest stories of Y&R’s beautiful character-driven history. This re-writing of the past was such a rip off, and we were left with Catherine’s suddenly son, Tucker, who, in my opinion, is a waste of a character and air time. I hope that Josh Griffith can give Jess the story she deserves and propel this character back to front burner/center stage.

    I was also under the thought/belief that when she left the canvas, she was visiting Phillip in Australia……she is one of the best assets of the show. They must be crazy to not to write a decent story for her!!!!!! The new team is giving us hints, but the show is in utter chaos……still just look at the writing ………and now more new actors……long son of our famous FBI agent, Nina ‘s son???????burning Victors ranch……a drunken Sharon ……she is s total mess, now Adam back to save her from herself …..enough! !!!!!!!!!I am not watching the show after December …..till the fallout of this current disaterous writing and story ends….and the dust settles……..

GH’s Mark Lawson Fuels At-Home Workout With Soap Opera Competition: “Dante, Dante, Dante, Dominic, Dominic, Dominic … But What About Dustin?”

As fans and colleagues of General Hospital and former One Life to Live star, Mark Lawson (Dustin, GH) know, he often posts on his Instagram account at-home workouts from his garage including: exercises with: kettlebells and free weights. In real-life, Lawson is a fitness guru, as well.

In one of his most recent posts over the holiday weekend, Mark used the constant chatter of a potential return of Dominic Zamprogna to GH to reprise his role of Dante Falconeri (which would pit Mark’s school teacher alter-ego Dustin at-odds with Dante, for the love of Lulu (Emme Rylan)) to charge up his workout routine! So what’s a guy to do?  Bicep curls!

Next, fueling his workout in a hilarious send-up, Lawson, as he is curling dumbbells remarks: “You want Dante back? Dante, Dante, Dante … Dominic,Dominic,Dominic … It’s all you talk about.  It’s all you care about, but what about Dustin?  What’s up with Dustin?  Where’s good guy Dustin? School teacher Dustin, who never shot nobody.  Never hurt anybody and all he wanted was a girlfriend.   All everybody talks about is Dante, Dante, Dante. Dominic, Dominic, Dominic.”

You can watch Mark’s IG post below!

Then let us know, if you hope there will be some healthy soap opera competition for the love of Lulu down the line between Dustin and Dante, if Dominic returns to the show.  If he does return, would you be Team Dustin or Team Dante? Share your thoughts via the comment section.

OLTL Alum Renee Elise Goldsberry On Performing Her Showstopper “Satisfied” In ‘Hamilton’ Premiering On Disney+ Today

We loved her as Evangeline Williamson on One Life to Live, and the Broadway world loved her in her Tony Award-winning role as Angelica Schuyler in the musical Hamilton, which today bows on the filmed version on Disney+.  Of course, we are talking about the fabulous Renee Elise Goldsberry who has talent abounds.

In Hamilton, Goldsberry performs a showstopper “Satisfied” as Angelica makes the ultimate sacrifice giving up the man she loves Hamilton played by Lin-Manuel Miranda) to her sister for her sister, Eliza’s (Phillipa Soo) happiness.

Now taking the version of this memorable moment in the theatre and bringing it to life on film also makes for an exciting performance and piece of creative work.

In an interview with the Los Angeles Times out today, Renee talks about executing this number in the show just right: “There are things that are technically challenging about that number: on top of the words, there’s the movement and the fact that we’re doing the previous number in reverse the whole time. It was a lot of things to juggle, but that was never hard, that was all intellectual. Even the rap was relatively easy. The most challenging part to sing is that final toast.This is an extremely well-written song. Every word is crafted to analytically take this woman on an emotional, life-altering decision for these three lives. That decision was such a monumentally painful and beautiful thing to do that by the time I’d get to that moment in which she makes that decision, I was so devastated that it was hard to sing that toast. She’s conflicted because, clearly, she wants to stay around this guy, she recognizes his brilliance, but she gets that Eliza is the one. So I imagine this woman having to give this toast to this community, in spite of the pain she felt.I was always worried that somehow or another, I wouldn’t be able to live up to the brilliance of the end of that song because emotionally, I was just trying to manage it. It took me maybe until Broadway to feel OK about it.”

When asked how she felt about seeing “Satisfied” in the movie version of Hamilton available everywhere Friday on Disney+, Goldsberry added: :Seeing it from the audience’s point of view for the first time, I realized there was a whole ‘nother level of storytelling that was going on, separate from me. I mean, Howell Binkley’s lighting design!  And Andy Blankenbuehler’s brilliant choreography, which I could always only see in my peripheral vision. It’s a huge number with the entire company onstage just killing it and basically turning back time with their bodies, and I’m standing in the middle, talking out like a deer in the headlights to the audience about a burst of things that I have to grapple with immediately. I’m very grateful that he made my job much easier.”

Watch a clip of Renee’s performance in the film version of Hamilton below.

Now, let us know if you are planning to watch the highly-anticipated Hamilton over the fourth of July weekend via the comment section and if you are excited to see Renee in her award-winning winning in it?

B&B’s Supervising Producer, Casey Kasprzyk Shares: “Just Finished Viewing Our First Produced Episode Since Starting Production Back Up!”

In a tweet late on Thursday, the supervising producer of The Bold and the Beautiful, Casey Kasprzyk, shared his enthusiasm at completing the first major hurdle for the soap going back into production during the COVID-19 pandemic.

Showing a viewing copy on disc of the first new episode produced for B&B in months, Casey said: “Just finished viewing our first produced episode since starting production back up! So proud of Team Bold & Beautiful. Great shows airing soon”

The disc had airshow number #8321 on it, and a question mark as to when it will make it to air.

The fact that The Bold and the Beautiful is the first daytime drama to get one new episode completed is a step forward amidst the spike in COVID-19 cases in Los Angeles County and the state of California.

Now soap fans will have to wait and see if General Hospital and The Young and the Restless begin their productions in the middle of July; as last projected by both series, or if there will be further delays due to the ongoing crisis for the safety of everyone involved at the shows.

So, excited to learn Casey’s news that there is a new episode of B&B on the horizon for viewers to see? Comment below.
