Julia Pace Mitchell who plays Sofia on The Young and the Restless confirmed to CBS Soaps In Depth that she has been bumped to recurring status by the number one show, although the series itself would not comment on her contract status as is their policy.

Mitchell stated she is still thrilled to be in Genoa City:  “I’m so happy to be here.  Every time I come to work, I’m excited to see Jeanne Cooper and Stephen Nichols work. This show has changed my whole life. It’s really cool. These are some of the hardest working actors in show business.”

The actress also revealed she is starting her own hair care company which people can learn about on her website: www.JuliaPaceMitchell.com.

So soapers, what do you think of Sofia’s storylines on Y&R?  Do you think the character has been badly written? Would you like to see Julia have more airtime?  Let us know!

I saw this coming, although I saw her more of being let go then put on recurring.

I don’t care for the character of Sofia anymore. I don’t like that they had her sleep with Neil and then have his baby. It should have been Malcolm or they should have gotten someone else for Neil that was not engaged (broken up, whatever) for him to have a child with.

The last straw with me with Sofia was when she wanted to up and leave with their son to New York. Now this is just ME, but I have more traditional values about family. Being a stay-at-home mom of two little ones and happily married, I don’t see how they could have justified having Sofia just move with Neil’s son without a second thought from Neil. I mean you just don’t do that. And it is not like Sofia is the better parent since Moses has a nanny. I mean she can’t make an argument that Moses needs her more than his father because they are both working parents and spend about the same amount of time with him. It is not like she stays home or works part time or is on maternity leave to bond with her child.

Either they have some great story for Sofia with a new love interest or they keep her on recurring (to come out once in a while) like Gloria is feasible. They can bring her out for run-ins with Neil and when Tucker needs to talk business.

Chances are they are going to kill off her character so that Neil will have sole custody of their son.

I really think they need to bring a Malcolm for Sophia and PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE bring Victoria Rowell back as Drucilla for Neil. Lily just re cast Chelsea KILL off.

Miss Mitchell is not a good actress. She brings nothing extra in any of her scenes. I can only hope she’s going to be off the show soon. If the new regime has any interest in getting viewership up, they should ask Victoria Rowell to come back as Dru.

Isn’t ‘who a character is’ or ‘what a character becomes’ w/n a story, driven for the most part by the writing/storyrunners vision?

Considering the writers during each of their tenures and understanding that actors should be able to bring certain nuances to even poorly written s/ls, not sure there was much difference in their choice of presentation – just the preceived end result..

We can now officially add Genie Francis to the list of actors/actresses being let go from Y&R! Genie was axed by Y&R today due to “budget reasons”. Will Daniel Goddard (Cane) follow her out of town and never return? One can dream!

Oh well –
GF’s Y&R character was all over the canvas, but there were enjoyable moments. Hope DG does not follow; I know unpopular but saw more acting ability (even with poor s/ls) than with some that are constantly lauded.

Honestly not surprised. The character of Sofia has been through around like a hockey puck since she joined the show, and her needy nature is just not something I like seeing. She’s more a recurring character.

I can definitely see Sofia as a recurring character. I’m glad to say she’s going to be around from time to time.

What storylines? Overall, Sofia has been boring. She did get interesting when she told Harmony to back off, but that’s about it.

Sofia was first introduced as a strong and smart business woman and Tucker’s right hand. Unfortunately, the writing for her character has ruined that first impression by making her drab and needy. Romantic entanglements don’t have to make a person weak, but in this case, they did. It’s too bad….

Next step, axed…please? Can’t believe she wasn’t fired with the rest of them or even before some of the ones let go.

Drew Barrymore Daytime Talk Show Pilot In The Works

This fall, new talkers from Tamron Hall and Kelly Clarkson will be part of the daytime television landscape, and now comes word that Drew Barrymore may enter the space with a new talk show for her that is in development with the pilot being shot this coming week.

According to Variety, details of the proposed one-hour show are not all clear, but Drew is said to be one of the executive producers of the pilot episode and yet there is no showrunner attached to the project at this time.  Barrymore’s company, Flower Films is likely attached as well.

Back in 2016, Barrymore had a deal in place with Warner Brothers Telepictures for a talk show, but that never came to pass, in part to a lukewarm response from TV station groups at that time.

However now the new regime at CBS’ syndication arm is said to have ‘high hopes’ for the show and they feel that Drew will appeal and do well in the daytime arena.

Barrymore recently appeared in her third season of  Netflix’s Santa Clarita Diet in its 30 episode season. Through her Flower Films she was been an executive producer on unscripted series including TLC’s Rattled and VH1’s Tough Love.

So, would you be interested. or intrigued to see what kind of show Drew Barrymore has to offer in daytime? Think she would be a good host? Share your thoughts via the comment section below.

The Bold and the Beautiful Ratings Winner With Phoebe is Beth Reveal

Great news for The Bold and the Beautiful and their long-awaited payoff: that the little girl being raised by Steffy (Jacqueline MacInnes Wood) as “Phoebe” is really Liam (Scott Clifton) and Hope’s (Annika Noelle) daughter, Beth, who they believed had died in the long and twisty baby switch storyline.

B&B was the highest rated daytime television show in the key 25-54 womens demo and the first time in the 32-year-old history of the CBS sudser that it has been atop of that demo. That is not only among the network soaps but all series genres in daytime for the week of August 5-9 –  quite the feat.

During the ratings week, Liam figured out that Phoebe was Beth, and eventually after Thomas’ (Matt Atkinson) manipulations told Hope the truth.

All this goes to show that as frustrated as viewers get wanting the truth to come out in a story they follow; when it finally does, they are along for the ride. Something B&B executive producer and head writer, Brad Bell does exceptionally well with big umbrella storylines that hold major ramifications for many on the canvas.

Congrats to Brad and the B&B team!

So, what do you think of BOLD’s performance in the ratings for the big week in story? Comment below

Kelly Monaco Addresses Billy Miller’s Departure From GH

In a post via her twitter account, General Hospital’s Kelly Monaco (Sam) shared her heartbreak on her longtime scene partner, Billy Miller’s (Drew) exit from the ABC daytime drama series.  This was the first time that Kelly addressed the situation in a public forum.

Miller came on to GH back in 2014 as Jason Morgan, following the departure of Steve Burton, who then wound up on Y&R.  When Burton returned to GH in 2017, Miller’s part was then turned-in-to, Jason’s twin, Drew Cain.

Through a great portion of Miller’s run on GH, he was paired romantically on -screen with Monaco and the duo were, and have remained, one of the most popular duo’s in daytime.

Monaco expressed the following in her message: “I feel like I have to address this situation. #BillyMiller ‘s untimely departure from #gh. Honestly, I can not come up with the words to describe how I feel about this decision… a decision that may not be what our audience thinks to be true. I’m heartbroken… more to come.”
