JFP got her back up as soon as you mentioned Chuck Pratt.

I know it wasn’t the time to mention fans who hate Pratt’s out-of-character writing, but shouldn’t soap journalists get the word to Phelps in their columns or on social media???

Soap fans can become very involved, personally involved, with characters..
And for Y&R to write year long children death stories is reprehensible ..
Some fans took Delias death to heart, it affected them, she was a loved child, they mourned ….
I say; shame on CBS/Y&R for writing children’s death to get emmy’s
(and they have and do that)..

This woman has no shame! She doesn’t even have the class to think the two actors who got her this emmy Billy Miller & Michael Muhney. Let’s see this show get another one without these two fine actors! A lot of people disgust me but she has to be on the top of the list!

That’s more than a lot of sad baby/kid stories to swallow in one year, too.

I’ve said this many, many times, but I stopped watching Y&R for almost a year and then started up again in December. I’ve been a watcher since it started in 1973. I don’t care for a lot of the actors who took over parts from before. I think Billy was Billy because of the actor, Abby was Abby because of the actor and I could go on. To me they just don’t suit the part. Plus I’m still not sure who Ben is and so on. I imagine there are some who have watched for 40 years who did contact… Read more »

In most video interviews I’ve seen of Jill Phelps she says the same thing. In regards to any show she’s working on. She always thanks the company of people it takes to put on these shows, which I respect. However, I think hard work is true of all soap actors/writers/backstage talent. That doesn’t mean those hard efforts will always equate to solid gold. The question is, what makes your show special? Why does it work? Y&R under her leadership has lacked a singular vision of what the show is supposed to be. Whenever Bill Bell would be interviewed about Y&R’s… Read more »
