Right after the new year, there is big trouble headed the way of Noah Newman and God knows who else on the Genoa City canvas!  That’s when Jhonna Flores debuts as Noah’s girlfriend, Adriana.

Flores will first be seen on-air on the January 4th episode of the number one sudser, The Young and the Restless!

In the latest issue of Soap Opera Digest on sale on newsstands now, Flores gives a bit of insight on what viewers can expect when her new character arrives on the canvas: ” She is seductive and manipulative. She’s from Noah’s past and comes with some trouble under her sleeve.  You don’t know what her true motives are. I’m expecting most girls who have crushes om Robert Adamson’s character of Noah, will hate me.  I’m ready for it! (Laughs)”

Jhonna also revealed to SOD that her first day on the set was pretty interesting: “It was a little intimidating.  They just threw me right in there, which was great.   In my first scene, I’m making out with a guy and straddling him on a couch! And, it’s my first on-screen kiss.  Now there’s lots of dialogue and scripts to learn, but it’s getting easier.”

So soapers are you intrigued to find out what this new bad girl has up her sleeve? Are you digging Robert Adamson as the new Noah Newman?  Weigh-in!

NO All these Newbie are not doing anything for me but taking up air time that could be giving to others like the Winters-Ashby-Chancellor Family. what Y&R needs to do is bring back Keemo , Colleen,JT,Mac,Nate & his Mom, Colin , Chance , Ronan and Chance ‘s Dad.

Linda I totally agree! The show was at it’s best when the Chancellors were front and center. I was so excited when Jill returned and they’ve barely used her. Haven’t these writers learned anything the past few years? Good storytelling, good acting with multiple generations are the basis of all soaps and people are watching (General Hospital!).

If I want to see smart aleck teeny boppers I’ll watch the Disney channels.

I have to say that I am surprised. I really thought that Noah was going to come out. He does have gay mannerisms and would be a better storyline especially if Nikki or Victor rejected him.

That would just be disgusting. Hire a handsome young man to play a needlessly gay man? To what end?

Ashlee, what is disgusting is the fact that you made such a comment like that. Amazing that we still have narrow-minded people in this country. I personally think Robert would be a great person to play a needed gay character on the show since there currently aren’t any. I also feel the show should introduce Hispanic characters as well.

Y&R had their brief moment of a gay story line when Phillip Chancellor came back from the dead and announce he was gay. They also had the gay attorney Rafe, who was seduce by Adam. When Victor found out, and thought his son was gay because of it, he was cool with it so I don’t think there would have been a problem even if Noah was gay. But personally I like to see the day when being gay on a soap wasn’t a plot device or a story line. Don’t you think it would be nice to see gay… Read more »

I hear you that these were past gay stories but the writers dropped the ball. I agree that the characters should be people first as gay people are. We face the same problems everyone else does. A good writer can do this and hoping these writers can with Robert or someone else.

I think Noah being gay and having the all-powerful Victor Newman respond to that would have been brilliant. It would add much needed diversity to the show, but with JFP at the helm, there’s no way a story like that, especially a front burner one, would ever be created.

Maybe if they tied these newbies into existing characters…like say the Emmy winning David Lago who played Raul, and was Billys best friend…bringing in a bunch of ethnic newbies is ALWAYS a recipe for disaster. Santa Barbara did it best…they were just organic characters seamlessly interwoven with the whole cast…it never reeked of “Lets tell an ethnic minority story with a bunch of non connected newbies who no one cares about“

OMG! I forgot about David Lago’s “Raul”. Loved that Emmy speech. I’d love to see him back on Y&R. Billy needs a friend and the LAST thing Y&R needs is another newbie.

No one cares about the new Noah yet, other than the fact that he has obviously studied Steve Burtons acting. Style…ground Noah first…make him a character in his own right…then bring in a backstory

Has anyone wondered what happened to Daisy? And who signed her out? They may have decided to drop that whole story since they are sending Daniel to Georgia. And if you are reading spoilers, Daniel was unable to talk dear old mom into going with him. Darn the bad luck! So sick of Phyllis and her whole “poor me”, “damn you” attitude. Her and Daisy should turn out to be the ones who are blood-related. They are so much alike.

OLTL Alum Arlene Dahl Dead At 96, Son Lorenzo Lamas Shares: “She Was The Most Positive Influence In My Life”

Another loss for the soap world and its extended family.  Arlene Dahl, who had a notable career in film and television, and who appeared on both One Life to Live and All My Children, has passed away at the age of 96.

Her son, former Falcon Crest and The Bold and the Beautiful star, Lorenzo Lamas (Ex-Lance and Ex-Hector, respectively), shared the news via his Facebook page: “Mom passed away this morning in New York. She was the most positive influence on my life. I will remember her laughter, her joy, her dignity as she navigated the challenges that she faced. Never an ill word about anyone crossed her lips. Her ability to forgive left me speechless at times. She truly was a force of nature and as we got closer in my adult life, I leaned on her more and more as my life counselor and the person I knew that lived and loved to the fullest. My sympathies go to her loving husband @marcrosennyc who, for the last 37 years, made her life so wonderful and joyous. Love you mom forever ♥️ #ArleneDahl #Moviestar #legend #mom #RIP”

Dahl came on to One life to Live as Lucinda Schenk Wilson, the selfish and manipulative mother of Mimi King played by Kristin Meadows.  Arlene made appearances on the ABC soap starting in 1981 and eventually was offered a one-year contract that took her through till 1984. A decade later, Dahl came on to play Lady Lucille on All My Children for a short time.

Guiding Light’s Robert Newman Pays Tribute to the Brilliance of Lisa Brown

On Sunday, longtime Guiding Light mainstay, Robert Newman (Ex-Josh Lewis), shared a heartfelt message on his Facebook page on the death of his former co-star, Lisa Brown (Ex-Nola Reardon).

As previously reported, Brown passed away earlier this week at the age of 67 from cancer. She portrayed the beloved role of Nola on the CBS soap opera from 1980-1985 and was front and center in many stories which featured Nola’s antics, fantasies, and of course, her love affair with Quint, the late Michael Tylo.

In his message on Brown’s death, Robert Newman expressed: “I was greatly saddened to hear of the sudden death of the great Lisa Brown. When I first joined the show in 1981, Lisa was pretty much the center of everything. A real whirlwind. Her work with the late Michael Tylo was fantastic. I particularly have fond memories of Nola’s fantasies …Wizard of Oz, Casablanca, etc. I don’t think I was ever a part of those fantasies, but I remember watching them being taped in the studio and she was just amazing.”

Newman goes on to say: “One of my fondest Lisa memories, however, was sitting in the audience at the Winter Garden Theater in NYC watching Lisa head up the cast of 42nd Street with Lee Roy Reams in 1981 or so. It was one of those times when you see a colleague that you know from one genre, Daytime Drama, in an entirely different genre, Musical Comedy, and you are completely surprised and blown away. Again, she was just fantastic in the role and I as a fellow musical comedy performer, I had great, great respect for her. Below is a clip from a television performance of her as Peggy in 42nd Street. Her death at such a young age is a great loss to the daytime community. Love and prayers to her family and friends.”

Michael Fairman TV also shares below the video posted by Robert below, which reminds us of just how multi-talented Lisa was for her fans, the audience, and to all that knew her. On a personal note: “Lisa always performed at the ‘Night of the Daytime Stars’ benefit for AMFAR in New York City during the AIDS pandemic that I created and produced.  It was the annual event held the night before the Daytime Emmys, and she was always willing to lend her support and talents to help others in need.”
