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?

Steve

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 characters who are people first, and their sexuality a part of who they are instead using them as device to show how progressive the show is?

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.

Couldn’t have said it better myself!

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.

ashlee

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

Steve Burton school of acting…tee hee:-)

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.

Vinessa Antoine Reveals She And General Hospital Have Parted Ways; After Landing Primetime Series Lead

After the fantastic bit of casting news for actress Vinessa Antoine  (Jordan Ashford) over the weekend, today, via her social media accounts, Vinessa has addressed her future with General Hospital.

As viewers know, Vinessa has been cast as the drama series lead in the new CBC production of Diggstown, and it is groundbreaking making her the first black actress to star in a series on the legendary Canadian broadcasting network,   Originally it was presumed that Antoine would go recurring on GH, while she was away filming, but that is not the case as she revealed in her heartfelt message today.  She and GH have mutually parted ways.

Vinessa’s statement: “There are so many people that God put into place who are directly and indirectly responsible for my time at General Hospital.  You know who you are. I thank you. I came into this world as an artist. My job is to create and inspire. I hope that I did that a little in playing #JordanAshford.

I believe that I have taken her as far as I can.  To clarify, as negotiations for #Diggstown were underway, although I am open to stay and play in Port Charles, I was told by my reps that GeneralHospital felt that my character would be off the canvas for too long for me to continue playing her.

With that, we decided to mutually part ways.  It’s time to make room for more women of color in prominent roles on television. I’m grateful to assist in that by starting this new chapter in my journey. I hope you’ll all come along. I feel blessed. Be well. xo”

An ABC rep told Soap Opera Digest that the role of Jordan is being recast.

So what do you think of Vinessa leaving GH for good? Share your thoughts via the comment section below and let’s wish her much success!

Congratulations are in order this Sunday to Lauralee Bell who is celebrating her 35th anniversary with The Young and the Restless.  Hard to believe, it’s been 35 years since the perils of a young Cricket became front and center and those young love stories with Danny (Michael Damian), Phillip (Thom Bierdz) and eventually, Paul ( Doug Davidson).

As Cricket matured, so to was the decision to now call the character by her birth name, Christine.  After all, she became quite the legal eagle! For over three and a half decades with time-off in between, Lauralee has shared memorable storylines with the amazing Tricia Cast, and the late Jeanne Cooper as Nina and Katherine, and let’s not forget Michael Baldwin, played by Christian LeBlanc, to name just a few/

In a few tweets on Sunday, Lauralee acknowledged the day stating: “We all couldn’t do what we love to do without the viewers so thanks to them!”  She followed that up with a tweet filled with photos of herself and her co-stars throughout the years ,and some self-effacing humor stating: “Wasn’t going to post for YR anniversary, because I’m not one to put attention on me but no denying these people have made my life better. Thanks to crew & fans and my hope for Cricket is to smile the way she used to & chill whenever possible”

As viewers know, Lauralee is the daughter of Y&R creators, the late, great Bill Bell and his wife, Lee Phillip Bell.  We are sure Bill is smiling today for Lauralee and proud of this accomplishment.

GH’s Vinessa Antoine Lands Primetime Series Will Make Canadian TV History!

Fantastic news for General Hospital favorite, Vinessa Antoine (Jordan)! The talented actress had landed the leading role in the primetime Canadian series, Diggstown!

The legal drama is scheduled to air this fall.  In Diggstown, Antoine will play Marcie Diggs, a top corporate lawyer who decides to dedicate herself to a legal aid office in Dartmouth, Nova Scotia.

This casting news will make Vinessa a part of Canadian TV history as the first Black Canadian actress to star in a prime-time drama on legacy network television, CBC.

Antoine spoke to the Toronto Star about her starring role, “When I first read the script I was really attracted to the notion that she was a corporate lawyer and she believed in the system. And when that crashed for her, life nudged her to do something extraordinary. And because I’m a woman of color, so many things connected. She’s complex, not stereotypical, and that’s refreshing.”

However as suspected, and according to the Toronto Star: “General Hospital fans will not be happy to learn that Antoine, who has been with the show since 2014, will no longer be a series regular when she starts shooting Diggstown in August.”

So, excited to hear Vinessa has been cast in a leading primetime series?  Comment below!
