Some good news over at The Young and the Restless!  After all the pink-slips and departures, fan favorite Jess Walton is on her way back to the number one soap to reprise her role as Jill Foster Abbott!

According to Nelson Branco at Soap Opera Uncensored, Jess is on her way back for a story arc that will last 4-6 weeks.  Walton told Uncensored, “I return on October 5th.  It’s a great story.”

So soapers, what could the story be?  Will Colin (Tristan Rogers) be far behind?  Will it reunite Jill and Katherine over a common cause, person, or reignite their feud, yet again? Or, it could be kid trouble?  Some blast from the past?  Weigh-in and let us know if you are excited about the return of Daytime Emmy winner Walton, even if it’s short term?

Love Jess Walton &Jill. Hopefully, she’s coming back to say goodbye to Cane & Lilly and will stick around to comfort Katherine as she bids farewell to Tucker. Kinda mean, I know but those are 3 characters who need to go.

Great news! I too wish it were longer, but maybe she will do this every 4-6 months or so and stay for a while.

I hope that her story is with Tristan Rogers. They have so much chemistry together.

Fantastic news! This was Bill Bell’s favorite character and it’s why after getting rid of the Foster’s and Brooke’s family he kept only Jill and built years of story line around her. Many fans and primarily newer viewers fail to realize or perhaps may not know that Victor or Nikki are not the true heart of Bill Bell’s YR, it has always been Jill Foster who is a true legacy character from the very beginning of YR. Jill should remain until YR goes dark.

Wow, that is a blast from the past to hear the Brooke’s and Fosters mentioned again. Once upon a time Genoa city had residents that were not all mega rich like today. Yes, we had the Chancellor’s, the Brooke’s and the Abbotts, but we used to have blue collar families like the Fosters, the Williams, Stevensons and the Reeds. I miss Jill as Jill Foster- not Jill Katherine’s long lost daughter or now Jill, Lauren’s half sister, but poor girl Jill envying the world of the rich, elbowing her way in, only to find it filled with people who had less class than regular folks at home. Ahh those were the days. Yep, early Jill Foster define the show, she was the one who was truly young and restless. Thanks Teri for trip down memory lane.

I totally agree. I just wish the part was still being played by Brenda Dickson…the only REAL JILL!

What a four/six week story and then she leaves again? Is that what she will do, back and forth to oregon like Trisha does to Tennessee?

Love her and glad she is back. Jill needs to be more front and center and become more true to what her character really is. Hope the new writer and JFP can make this happen.

I’ll take what I can get, but why, why isn’t this long term?
I’m sure she was expecting to come back full time after her leave of absence.

Christine

She moved up north so she is not in Los Angeles anymore. It would be hard for her to work full time now.

What do you mean – even if it’s short term ?
Do you know something we don’t ?
Y&R needs Jill – she’s part of the fabric of the show.
I hope she has a really great story when she returns….instead of the gobble-de-goop they’ve been serving up lately.

I can’t wait until she’s back. She is the young and the restless. I hope she’s back with a vengeance and a great story line.

GH’s Maurice Benard Memoir ‘Nothing General About It’ Goes Nationwide Today

Today is the day! After months of fans eagerly awaiting the nationwide release of two-time Daytime Emmy winner, Maurice Benard’s (Sonny Corinthos, General Hospital) moving and insightful memoir, it’s finally available in book stores and online everywhere.

According to the publisher HarperCollins: The memoir Nothing General About It, looks back to Maurice’s youth in a small town and his tenuous relationship with his father. He describes how his bipolar disorder began to surface in childhood, how he struggled to understand the jolting mood swings he experienced, and how a doctor finally saved his life. For years Maurice was relentless in his goal to be a successful actor. But even after he “made it,” he still grappled with terrifying lows, breakdowns, and setbacks, all while trying desperately to maintain his relationship with his wife, who endured his violent, unpredictable episodes. Maurice holds nothing back as he bravely talks about what it was like to be medicated and institutionalized, and of how he learned to manage his manic episodes while on the set of GH.

Nothing General About It is also an incredible love story about an enduring marriage that demonstrates what those vows—for better, for worse, in sickness and in health—truly mean. Maurice also pays tribute to the community that has been there for him through thick and thin, and ruminates on the importance of both inherited and created family.  A shocking, riveting, and utterly candid memoir of love, adversity, and ultimately hope, Nothing General About It offers insights and advice for everyone trying to cope with mental illness, and is a motivational story that offers lessons in perseverance—of the importance of believing in and fighting for yourself through the darkest times.  Nothing General About It includes a 16-page insert featuring approximately 50 photographs.”
