Is Melissa Claire Egan returning permanently? If so, I hope her marriage to this Calvin guy ends because Chelsea & Adam are endgame. It will be interested to see the chemistry that Mark and Melissa have on screen, since both Michael Muhney and Justin Hartley had great chemistry with her. So far, Mark hasn’t really popped with Sharon Case, and I think it’s because of the age difference being so noticeable. That’s why I’m hesitant to see an Adam/Phyllis pairing, which is where I thought they were going with them. It may have worked with Gina’s version of Phyllis because… Read more »

Do not want Case with either of the Newman boys let her get out of that merry go round but the age difference doesn’t seem to bother people if it is a old man geezer pawing all over a woman twenty to thirty years his junior. Trust me even the new Adam said the crew was in awe of Case’s body in the fantasy love scene

Great post, Jimmy….. Sharon hasn’t popped with this Adam because she is more “Mommy” than “wifey”…… the imbalance is blinding–hurts my eyes, albeit I love Sharon. I’m not a fan of Chelsea, but, at least, she is closer in age. Stafford is even older than Case—so, we’re in agreement there, as well… I think there will be some competitive cat fights between Phyllis and Celeste—-over Jack!! Don’t know why!! The writers should stop putting Jack on the Adonis pedestal–he grosses me out–settle him down, please!! After all that exercise he engaged in with someone thirty-five years younger; one would think… Read more »

This Adam is way too young for this show. Period. He looks even younger than Noah. Awful.

He resembles the conartist/ hlf sibling of Ashley. Graham. Who swindled Dinah. Would ve been a nice twist if Graham got out of jail early( forget how he exited) and came across Chelsea in Genoa city and tracked her down for her $$.
Another nice twist is if Tracey recognizes John Burke as a her exlover who intruth was the cause of her divorce from Steve. It could amp up the cute Tracey/Cane story.
Regardless cant wait to see nuAdam who i luv bury this new character. This new Adam is ruthless

James R. Poissant

Is nuAdam hitting it out of the park or what? I love this guy!!!. I am with you on how the new character looks so much like Graham. At least we know with the newest Adam on board, there will be plenty of great scenes no matter what the story is with or without this new character being brought in.

He does resemble Graham. BTW, Graham is not Ashley’s half-sibling. I believe her bio-father was Graham’s stepfather.

I think “Chelsea’s husband”should be on for years to come. He is a prime candidate to take over dark horse and run with it. Don’t bring him in and then drop him. Make him a recon to be forced with. Victor and Jack and him. Maybe even have his character take over Chancellor industries. Jill could sell to him. Billy could pair up with him from working to being his ally against Adam. There’s so much you could do with his character. And stop killing off all the kids and young adults, there won’t be a gone to be Erste… Read more »

I will be perpetually stuck on this couple. I was just a wide-eyed pre-teen when Nick and Sharon first started dating. WOW!! I fell for them instantly. So, I am not averse to them as a couple, no matter how many times they hook-up and break-up.

Britney Sarpey. Who went from playing Bobbie’s niece Valerie on GH to Y&R. I watched her entire story there as well. What’s so silly about that? I’m implying just what you and Lew think I’m implying.

Lew S.
Guest
Lew S.

I think you are implying that Calvin Boudreau sounds like a black name, which I think is unfortunate, because there are many white men with the name Calvin (Calvin Coolidge, Calvin Klein). The character is from the south, so it is not that uncommon.

davlestev1
Guest
davlestev1

That is what I implied because the name sounded so out of left field. But then I realized I watch Swamp People and the Cajun names in Louisiana and New Orleans and now it makes sense. It was too late, the response was out and that’s that. Oh well. Moving on.

Hi, Lew,
I can guarantee that dev means no harm, my friend.
I actually thought along the same lines, by Calvin’s surname…Cajun/Creole.
I know that Brytni is creole, so, in dev’s defense, I do think he took it for granted that Calvin was Creole—considering his dulcet drawl.❤️

Celia
Guest

Brytni Sarpy ( Originally Sarpi–Italian) is Creole with French, Italian and African heritage.
Boudreu is a French surname–Calvin is an English name.

LOL. I’m not much for controversy, but, being in my “late” 50’s now I tend to say what I think. Not having lived my entire life down south i tend to process some common first and last name combos on a different level. I grew up in a VERY diverse East coast small town in the 60’s and “Meggie’s having a party”-was different than “Florine’s having a party”- for me. As a matter of fact we never encountered racial disparity till the very early 80’s. By then I was a senior in high school and could have cared less. LOL.… Read more »

Do you really think Adam is being mistreated by everyone? Are you watching the same show, as the rest of us are? He has been acting like a piece of crap to not only his family, since he’s been back, but to just about everyone he comes in contact with. Look what he’s doing to Kevin alone, keeping him away from Chloe and Bella. Didn’t he do enough killing Chloe’s daughter, be it accidental or not? Why can’t he give them a little peace.

Hey Richard, Hope all is well – What would you like to see on Y&R? The problem is Mal Young brought in a slew of new characters and no one liked them or liked only a few. Myself included. I think there has to be a well balance between the veteran cast members and new additions. I think the new head writer is trying to slowly make that happen.

I hear you Richard and I agree with you quite a bit. A little less of Adam would be good and this is the best Kyle ever. I think Y&R is trying to satisfy the viewers that have hung in for years and bringing in younger characters to attract the new generation. Not an easy thing, because you can’t please everyone. I hope you hang in there, because I think things will get better.

Richard you and Lew had an interesting discussion. The “Oh summer thanks for the kidney you are done back to lola” got me. There was a wonderful premise in that storyline that could have been a torn love affair, a torn feeling of quilt, a torn feeling twix almost anything philosophical and everything. Now it looks the writer’s missed; however, it isn’t too late.

She knew he loved Lola, but she went on acting like the happy bride to be, promoting the wedding night and honeymoon, acting like they were the happy couple, when she knew that it was just a… Read more »

Neither, that ship has sailed too many times. It doesn’t make sence knowing who Adam is that Chelsea would come back to GC. And does her hubby know she is a career conartist? Probably not, one would think she would want him far away. Bring in some new, young and interesting people. Start the next generation already.
And let Sharon focus on her young daughter and stop shacking up with Mr Right Now and her daughter’s kidnapper.

He looks handsome and totally age appropriate. The problem heroin lies with the fourth Adam recast. My God! He is way too young and the age disparity is not only glaring, it’s distracting. When Stafford came back on it was especially disturbing as she looks like she could now be Adam’s grandmother.

Although this new Calvin is so very good looking, I like Chelsea with someone more Nick’s age, preferably Nick himself, but I think that ship has sailed. Every time I see Adam, I like him even less than the time before. I hate what he’s selfishly doing to everyone he comes in contact with. Hopefully Chelsea’s husband will be able to settle his hash, so to speak. There has to be someone out there that can throw something at him, and make it stick.

I don’t like the nuAdam—not endearing– -he is much too young to be taken seriously—Chelsea looks older than Sharon ( albeit I know she’s much younger)—-In other words, neither of the women is a good fit for him.

All My Children Alum Cornelius Smith Jr. Joins the Cast of Apple TV+ Limited Series, ‘Five Days At Memorial’

Daytime fans remember him fondly as the son of Jesse (Darnell Williams) and Angie Hubbard (Debbi Morgan), Frankie, on All My Children.  And now, actor Cornelius Smith Jr., is set to join a major limited series based on the acclaimed nonfiction book by Pulitzer Prize-winning author Sheri Fink, about the the first five days following Hurricane Katrina made landfall entitled Five Days at Memorial.

Written by John Ridley and Carlton Cruse, Smith will play a doctor, (something he is very familiar with playing since Frankie Hubbard was a doctor in Pine Valley!) named Dr. Bryant King, an internist and one of the few doctors of color at the hospital, who finds himself very much in the middle of the crisis.  He will headline the show alongside Vera Farmiga and Adepero Oduye.

Photo: JPI

The series will stream on Apple TV+, and no word yet as to when it will have its debut following its filming.

 

Since his time on All My Children, Smith has appeared on ABC’s Scandal, and had recurring roles on God Friended MeSelf Made: Inspired by the Life of Madam C.J. Walker and Manhunt.

Deadline broke the casting news.

So, looking forward to seeing Cornelius back on our screens? Do you remember his work as Dr. Frankie Hubbard on All My Children? Comment below.
