They Need A Bad Guy So I Say He will Play A Bad Guy Girls Go Crazy For Bad Guys

Lee
Lee

I don’t care if he’s good or bad, I just like watching him!!! 🙂

Celia
Celia

Not this girl, Lynn……unless he’s hot !! LOL. I do not like this actor. Just being honest.
Is he related to Arturo? I do not trust Arturo….maybe they are a team? Bad guys in good guys ‘masks’? Ha!

k/kay
k/kay

I think he is a Adam recast probably wrong

Celia
Celia

I don’t know, Kay….he is too ethnic looking to be Adam. But, one never knows…

Sylvia
Sylvia

Adam went from dark hair to being a blonde, then back to black. Simply amazing. So stupid. LOL.

Momo
Momo

I don’t the actor either. 🙁

k/kay

Well he is indeed a handsome devil!

Fanny

Hi sweet Cee,
Completely agree… don’t like Arturo either
annoyed me from day one. Can’t believe Nicki had a fling w/ him yuck‼️

Celia
Celia

Hello, ma belle amie…
I didn’t mind Arturo at first….Now? I can’t shake this feeling he’s up to something nefarious and this new guy ( not my kind of a hot, sexy male, LOL) is here to help him with whatever Arturo has planned.
I CAN believe Nikki had a few rolls in the hay with him……Afterall, isn’t that her modus operandi?
Fanny, my lady; I have been watching this soap since I was three or four….didn’t understand much, but when I was old enough to ken what was going on, Nikki has always been prone to ‘stray’. I wouldn’t go as far as calling her ‘une fille dela nuit’ in her youth, but….marriage vows be damned. She even had sex with Cole, Victoria’s husband; if I’m not mistaken.
So, the question is….why would such a young, virile guy take Nikki to bed, when he could have anyone? He’s after something—moved straight to Abby at breakneck speed. LOL.

Fanny
Fanny

Ma Cherie Cee,
I’ve only been watching Y&R for 3 years this summer… still have a lot to catch-up on, having fun along the way. Faithfully watching GH for decades w/ the help of a FF button to filter out the nonsense, otherwise it’s been a decent RIDE full of greatness at times. Back in the DAY while following DOOL …during
Bo & Hope’s reign, my sister & I took
an over night “soap Cruise “ around Hudson island so we could meet Ari’s soap crush Drake H. We laughed until we cried & promised ourselves never to do a repeat performance of a tug boat tour to nowhere …unless it was on “Viking”.
Fun time memories… Hope U & your
family R having a lovely summer sweet Cee.

Celia
Celia

Chere Fanny,
WOW!! That does sound like you had the time of your life….and with your sister!! I have three sisters, my lady……aren’t they the best?? Especially my twin….you know it’s true what they say? Yes, we finish each other’s sentences. LOL.
Y&R has always been my favorite soap. Another World was a close second, with OLTL, AMC, and PASSIONS. The latter was a little ‘out there’, but so fun to watch….loved “Timmy”.
We are having a very busy summer. I have a big family and we take our vacations together, most of the time……all the children drive us a little batty when together; but I wouldn’t have it any other way….family is everything.
Thanks you for asking, belle madame….I wish you the same.
A bientot.

Karen
Karen

I agree don’t like Arturo at all, I cringe when him and Abby kiss.
This new guy is very handsome. Who could he possibly be for. To old for Summer.

Elite Advisors
Elite Advisors

There is a shortage of men … Victoria, Sharon, Abby, and now Summer all need something fun in their lives…he would have made a great GH Dante!!

Celia
Celia

Dante would make much more sense, considering Sonny’s Hispanic heritage, Elite Advisors.

k/kay
k/kay

I just want someone for Sharon that will live her warts and all everybody deserves that ! Phyllis had done far worse things then Djaron but yet Nick forgives her so I hope she moves on

Celia
Celia

I love Sharon, Kay….always pulled for her and Nick.
Phyllis? Hmmmm…..had we been talking about Stafford, I would give you a different response because I am biased when it comes to her….I admit it.
But PhakePhyllis ain’t doing it right!!!!
She and Nick will hit the sheets, AGAIN…..sooo typical….over and over….
Maybe, Jordi will hook up with Sharon. She does deserve happiness….but, do it with aplomb….not rush into it.
Poor Sharon is destined to be standing under a perpetual dark cloud like Eeyore ( from Winnie the Pooh), LOL.
As Eeyore is wont to say, “Most likely lose it again, anyway”.

Harry
Harry

Victoria could use a love interes. I don’t think there’s a shortage of young men. You have Kyle and Ravi (whom you never see). I keep thinking Ravi and Summer would make a great pair–he could ground her, make her more of a visionary and less materialistic and shallow.

Violet Lemm
Violet Lemm

So sorry, but Jordi, is way much more man, than Lulu could ever handle.

Soaphound
Soaphound

I didn’t care for him on GL but sometimes a new character can change my mind. I just hope it’s not another man/boy toy in need of a razor who finds his way into Nikki’s clutches.

Celia
Celia

Ain’t that the truth, Soaphound.

Dee

Hopefully a bad guy. Loved him on Guiding Light.

Lew S.
Lew S.

I’m thinking he is for Victoria.

SZima

Bad guy with a heart of gold!
Please NOT an evil guy! Vic has that role covered.

Iakovos

I like this actor and hope Y&R has developed a strong character with a long-term story line so it is not a fly-by-night extended cameo appearance. Genoa City needs someone a good bad boy with sex appeal.

Ariel Coger
Ariel Coger

Not watching the young in the no more

GramS
GramS

I really like this actor. I think he could easily be Arturo’s older brother. I do not understand why some keep saying Arturo is suspicious. He hasn’t done anything to warrant it. So what if he had a sex thing going with Nikki, they are both consenting adults.

David J Schroeder

Bravo, Jordi!

Michael Teale
Michael Teale

The only beef that I have with this casting is that YR has a no raise policy. They need to get their budget under control first.

Lynn
Lynn

I am thinking that perhaps he will play Adam, it says he is introduced as a mysterious stranger named Ray, I’m thinking Adam when ANOTHER new face due to the explosion. We need Adam to come back, the show needs the multi-dementional fabulous Adam! I held out hope for Michael Muhney, but it’s never gonna happen, and at this point they need to fill the void.

ramon carter
ramon carter

thats my thought adam with a new face who cares id he is ethic looking he could be adam and hook up with sharon

Frances Gruno
Frances Gruno

Now this is exciting. He would have made a great Adam Newman since it doesn’t look like the writers want to give M.M, (Michael Muhney) back to us fans.

Momo
Momo

No, he wouldn’t. Not exciting either.

Celia
Celia

I agree, Momo. Jordi was on DOOL, not too long ago.
You know how we either take to an actor or not? Well, something about him did not mesh with me. Unreasonable of me? Perhaps.
I will give him a chance. As Soaphound said, sometimes a new role shines a different light upon the ‘subject’, LOL.

Alan
Alan

I think Jordi will play a character with no established back story or pre-planned arc who floats through Genoa City looking for a storyline like the majority of the cast. When a show wastes the talents of Eileen Davidson for the better part of the last year while bringing on boring new characters like Arturo and Shauna it’s time for a new creative team…

Momo
Momo

Eileen didn’t have a storyline. Don’t know how she won an Emmy. Not saying she’s not talented, because she is.

I with Shauna would go too. Maybe now that Hilary is gone, she will. Arturo hasn’t really meshed either.

We have great actors already on the show who need story. Give them a story before adding more characters who will contribute nothing.

k/kay
k/kay

All the soaps are doing that just how it goes

Celia
Celia

I had not read this comment of yours, yet, Momo….weird how we both used the word ‘mesh’…..great minds….LOL.
If Shauna wouldn’t try so hard, she’d be much more effective ( not that I’m an expert), but when she scrunches up her face, constantly, it becomes annoying.
It’s like that is the only expression she has mastered….frozen in place. Was she brought as THE catalyst to expefite Hilary’s demise? Too bad!! What an awful ending for one of the best on daytime…..or primetime, if she wanted ….

Momo
Momo

🙂

I will miss Hilary/Mishael. Haven’t always liked Hilary, but she grew on me. Wonder what they’ll do with the GC Buzz.

The whole brother’s in rehab storyline doesn’t ring true. That’s part of my issue with Shauna, and then I think she’s more annoying than anything. And Hilary and Devon gave her way too much freedom. Going away for the weekend and letting her stay in the penthouse alone. Strange.

Celia
Celia

Shauna is fifteen? Knows too much, if you ask me. I wasn’t even allowed to date at that age…..and when I finally was, a year later, my sister and I HAD to double date. Never alone.
Yes, the brother thing is sort of lame. But, you know, Momo….some parents truly are very lax with their teen kids in real life.
But, I will bite my tongue. I don’t want to jinx myself….my children are nine ( in two and a half weeks) and four respectively. We try our best to keep things on an even keel….and, they do have some priviliges taken away when necessary.

James R. Poissant

I’m glad to see him get this. i felt he didn’t get what he should have at DAYS. Looking forward to catching him on Y&R.

Koosje
Koosje

You don’t need another evil guy ….Abby needs someone

Momo

Not happy with this. I was so glad when he left Days. I don’t want him on another of my soaps.

Janice

Just hope he doesn’t end up with Sharon, Nikki or Victoria…..so over those affairs!

k/kay
k/kay

After today’s show please be for Sharon and Sharon kick that bastard out of your house that pompous horney ass! Nobody treats a person you love like this I hate what they have done with him but hey the actor got wanted he wanted! Newsflash Case has been carry your no talent behind for years

dmr
dmr

I am laughing so hard! I watched the show today while at lunch. We knew that’s where they were headed…the kitchen counter! haha

k/kay
k/kay

Disgusting of course she would do it anywhere I hate her character and I loathe nick two seconds and he has no regard for Sharon I am so very sorry I ever supported this couple ! Nick would screw a snake if it stood still long enough as bad as I hate Victor I hope he takes that kid to task he is not a man he is a spoiled child ! Everything he has Daddy gave him

Celia
Celia

Oh, Kay….even when upset, you are too funny. A snake? How? Where?
But, yes….you are absolutely right. I cannot believe it!! I regret supporting the couple, as well.
It seems Nick can’t keep it in his pants….same fallen hero? How many times can he do that?
This development came out of nowhere….why is it with these writers? On all soaps? Can you imagine each time we have a disagreement with our mate, we go out and do it with someone else? What is that all about?
Nick is not a man….no true man would do that. Spoiled brat, indeed!!
I hope what he and Flaky PhakePhyllis are proud of themselves.
Will they explain it away as usual?

Celia
Celia

I missed it, dmr….I was en route for seven hours…..It was not recorded either. I have to go to my grandmother’s to watch it. I forgot to set my DVR.
Where did it happen? Summer’s penthouse? LOL.
I hope PhakePhyllis break an arm and a leg. Ha!

k/kay
k/kay

Hey c I can’t ever really support Sharon and Nick I wanted to but the writers when they lost Cassie losing a child and then screw on your wife when she needs you the most! That’s why I could never back Phyllis and Nick even when Stafford was in the role ! Stafford was at her best in the early nineties when Bill Bell was writing for the character well all of the characters were Paul had wonderful stories very sad ask your grandmother it was once a wonderful show you wanted to watch every day he created characters and you cared about them
Not silly plots

k/kay
k/kay

When Bill Bell passed away the heart of the show died too Kay Alden and Sally were trying to bring it back but Sony threw them away makes you wonder if they want the show to die also

Kevin C
Kevin C

So totally agree 100% k/kay but I think the heart of the show died when they let Kay Alden and a lot of the behind the scenes staff go in 2006…I had high hopes with Sally and Kay but like you said, SONY/CBS blew it and it’s disgusting that they let this classic daytime drama that Bill Bell created go the direction it has…

Violet Lemm
Violet Lemm

Any kind of guy is OK with me.I especially liked him years ago on GL, AMC, and more recently DOOL, but not as much as the other two. I was thinking he might be related to Arturo.

Jeffrey Moree

Love his work!

Jordi Vilasuso’s character will be entangled in Black Horse and with Arturo,,
Nick will need all the help he can get because Victor will chew Nick up and spit him out.
Victor will regain his throne.

Andi

Jordi is a very good actor. I watched him on Guiding Light and am sure he’ll do a great job (whatever the role) on Y & R. Give him a chance to settle in. He won’t disappoint fans.

Rosalyn

I am glad they are bringing Jordi to Y & R. I had hoped he would return to Days of our Lives.

Jussie Smollett Scenes Cut From ‘Empire’ In Light Of Attack Investigation

As of Tuesday, the production of Fox’s hit series, Empire has slashed Jussie Smollett’s upcoming scenes following reports that the suspicion is now on him for allegedly staging the “hate” attack he reported to the Chicago PD back on January 29th.

According to production sources viaTMZ: Jussie was supposed to have nine scenes and a big musical performance in the second-to-last episode of Season 5,  Now, five scenes and the musical number have been axed.  Smollett’s character is also no longer the focus of his remaining four scenes, which will now feature an ensemble of characters.

The actor/singer who portrays Jamal Lyon will be working Friday and possibly Thursday but won’t be rehearsing.

The Empire writers are said to have been scrambling over the last 24 hours to revise this season’s scripts.

All of this despite despite strongly expressed renewed support by Empire showrunner Brett Mahoney on February 17th.  The goal now is said to be to reduce Smollett’s role both in dramatic stints and musical performances.

Empire returns for the remainder of its fifth season on March 13.

Smollett claims he was the victim of a racist and homophobic attack near his Chicago apartment, but things took a turn when he may have paid two friends to help stage the assault.

This case is said to be going before a Grand Jury as early as today.

What are your thoughts on the latest developments in the Smollett case and Empire reducing his appearances for the remainder of the season? Comment below.

TODAY: Y&R’s Melody Thomas Scott Visits ‘The Talk’ As Her 40th Anniversary Week As Nikki Newman Kicks-Off

On today’s broadcast of the CBS afternoon series, The Talk, the ladies welcome Y&R icon, Melody Thomas Scott, who this week celebrates her incredible 40th anniversary with the show as Nikki Newman.

During her segment, Melody chats on Wednesday’s upcoming standalone episode where Nikki is in jail reflecting on her life.  Wednesday is also the exact date of Thomas Scott’s 40th anniversary with the CBS Daytime drama series.

During the segment Melody fills the ladies in on the “All About Nikki” episode, as she relates:  “I was so thrilled that they did this. It’s truly, really the life of Nikki in the entirety of the episode. It’s all about Nikki. And she’s in jail. She’s writing a letter to her grandchildren so that she can explain who she really is, how she got to where she is.  I have to narrate it, I’ve got a voice-over, a long voice-over. And then, as I’m thinking about all these different times in my life, I can’t believe I’m referring to me as her, her life, then we see the flashbacks. And for the longtime viewers, even current viewers, it is such a trip down memory lane. I mean, you are on that train and you’re not getting off…all of the clips have not been seen since they were first aired.”

In addition, Melody addresses the passing of her longtime co-star and friend, Kristoff St. John relating:  “I adored him. We all adored him. There was something very unique and magical about him. He would just draw you into his wonderful world. And all of his bear hugs, I can’t believe I’ll never get a bear hug. Going to any kind of event, any party, the first thing I said when I got there was ‘Where’s Kristoff?’ I want to find Kristoff, I want to be with him, I want to be in his air space. Because that’s the kind of guy he was, and I think that came through on camera. I think everybody sensed that, I mean everybody adored him.”

So, will you be checking out Melody on today’s episode of The Talk (2PMEST and 1PM PST) today? Comment below.
