I was laughing so hard at Mishael’s facial expressions and tone while Hilary was on the phone with Mariah talking about Mariah interviewing Dina. She was hysterical!

Opps, my bad. She plays Hillary. I agree, love her, love Hillary. And she looks amazing. Loved it when she saw the billboard of obnoxious, narcissistic Lilly and said,”I can’t get away from her.”
I know how you feel, Hillary. I hate Lilly

Hilary reminds me of early Erica Kane. She’s not just beautiful, that girl has got talent up to her eyeballs.
I would find her more believable as a model than Lily.

Hey, Timmmy, I agree, my friend, …….I suppose the bosses thought to bring ‘glamor’ into the fray…it is failing miserably….not impressed…..too staged…. Lilly is not right for the glam-sparkle-sexy role, for one thing. Hilary would whet the palate so much more, for the male persuation and spark the fashion sense for women. I can’t take Cane, anymore , ….and this couple’s sugary scenes, inflict pain upon my senses, lol…..I can’t wail until all-that-is-Julia explodes ih his face. I am already rubbing my hands together, in anticipation. I do not enjoy being a Debbie Downer, but I can’t think of one… Read more »

I would like the Hollywood storyline much better if boring Victoria stayed in Genoa City. The character has no chemistry with Billy, IMO, and no spark or spunk, unlike Phyllis. She bores me to tears. Speaking of no chemistry, Devon and Mariah, ick. I can’t stomach those two. Bryton James constantly has a look, like he has smelled something foul, when he is attempting to show some type of emotion. Honestly, it just looks like he is confused or constipated all of the time. Send him packing! I wish On-Demand had fast forwarding. What do I like? I love Eileen… Read more »

I think Gina brings a playful and sexy side to Phyllis. When compared to Victoria, who I find to be drab and boring, I would pick Phyllis any day of the week. If I had the choice of getting a root canal or going to San Diego on vacation with Victoria and “the kids,” I would opt for a root canal, hahahaha!

Rhonda

Devon is an incredibly dull and pointless character (and yet, they’re getting rid of Kevin who lights up the screen?)
I always liked Mariah but I hate her with Devon and I really hated that absurd cat fight which transpired between she and Hillary. Haven’t we made enough strides and women don’t need to battle it out over a man?
That was beneath Mariah.

Celia
Guest
Celia

LOL and WOW, Rhonda …you sure love the word hate. I agree …I have always ” denounced” Devon. He still strikes me as a twelve-year old. And, Kevin was a brilliant light on Y&R. Sad!! But, regardless of Devon ( which reminds me of ‘divan’ French for ‘sofa’…..just to sit on…..while Mariah is a gem. The scene between her and Hilary is a representation of women’s inner composition. No matter how civilized we are, or “have come a long way, baby”, sharpening our claws is innate….never will that notion vanish. Women are, by nature, catty, whether we want to admit… Read more »

I’ve never been a fan of Mariah; however, she at least has some spunk and spark. With Devon, that spunk and spark is diminished. I liked Mariah and Kevin’s friendship.

You are so right. Kevin over Devon any day, but I guess he and his money bring more to the show , with more SL possibilities than Kevin.

Frankly, I am very worried about Lily. People around her aren’t complimenting her enough, telling her she’s gorgeous, stunning, beautiful, talented and that she’s a star. I think her self esteem is going to be hurt by the lack of praise.

Celia
Guest
Celia

I know what you mean, Joy. Lily is not interesting…I do not dislike her, but, as a model, she does not have what it takes. Cane does not help the character either….the most boring pair, en par with Jason and Sam ( GH). I don’t think Lily is beautiful, but she has a perfect body, and wears that gorgeous wardrobe well. But, more often than not, attraction and savoir-faire trump beauty. But, in my opinion, Lily lacks both, and then some….no style or flair of which to speak. She is not saucy—no come-hither sparkle in her eye….so inherent to modeling….no… Read more »

jaybird369 and Joy, no kidding and what is with her always having to remind everyone that she is the boss? Then, treating “her staff” like children by always trying to boost them (well, Billy) up, up, up? Aren’t these adults? Senior Executives working in Corporate America? Do they really care or need a boost from their boss every five minutes, like school kids? She is a twit and is no match for Phyllis.

THANKS so much Damien on the comment regarding the background music…YES, PLEASE rehire the former music director and get the music back to what it should be…Y&R use to have the best background music and IMO it’s now #3 of the 4 soaps left…the only show I think Y&R’s music is better is DAYS…Days use to have fantastic background music when Marty Davich was over the music…

hi damien .. the soaps need Young Writers– 30-40yrs old. They live in the modern media.. Are enthusiastic and have working imaginations. The soaps are staying old fashioned in the 80’s , they are the same old, never new material just reruns from past years. All, the stories come from the Graveyard of dead stories being resurrected, over and over again.. Thing is— We all seem to know what is going to happen next because we have been there done that many times before .. It is the 21st century and new young writers who are up with current worldly… Read more »

Yeah, I don’t get why Victoria huffs and puffs when Reed does what any teen his age, with raging hormones, would do.
By that, I don’t mean outright sex ( can’t stop it anyway, if he has a mind to), but kissing a girl? She might as well make a eunuch out of him.
Of course, you’re right, su…..the writers are depicting this kid as an abnormal teen—stay home, do his homework, strum his guitar with a complete stranger who has now moved into grandma’s house. Only in soaps.

Celia

I like your Ashley/ Dina’s boyfriend premise. Good one, damien.
I, also, agree about Jordan. Can’t stand him. Tone down his appearances ….too much of this guy is just that….too much.
Also, why so much coddling of this Tessa person? She has an agenda. Is she another one of Nikki’s long, lost children? The mistress of the mansion serves the help breakfast? In what hemisphere? Especially, a stranger.

I agree with you about Ashley and Ravi, BORING! Ravi has become her therapist. There is no heat between these two. Ravi is a sweet kid, who is wet behind the ears and hot for teacher. Ashley is a beautiful professional, business woman who should be paired with a captivating lead man and not a jerk. I could care less about Chelsea or Jordan. Chelsea is a snooze fest and she has ZERO chemistry with Nick. Tessa is very awkward and Noah, well, he’s a young kid trying to fit into dad’s pair of shoes. I think the part should… Read more »

Hi, again, dmr,
Oh, and, Ashley and Ravi? Off the wall stupid. C’mon!!!!! Ashley needs a man, mature enough to satisfy her mind. Her daughter is older than Ravi. This stryline ‘ain’t ‘ going anywhere…I hope not, anyway.

Jack and Gloria – OH PLEASE! Ashley totally deserves a mature man in her life. Nothing against Ravi, but he should be ith the younger GC scene. Phyllis & Billy? NO, a thousand times NO! Billy and Victoria have spark and this pairing should be given a chance at an adult relationship and romance. Tessa, don’t know what to make of her and no sure about the chemistry with Noah. Give Neil a damn storyline! Give him something to do other than being a sounding board to everyone!

Celia
Guest

Well said, Lew. All of it !! Furthermore, Phyllis is a grandmother ( such a stupid thing–Gina is only 40, or so–wrong casting), but is acting like a silly schoolgirl in her first throes of puppy love. Then again, fast and furious may work even better the second time around. Most do not agree with a Victoria and Billy coupling. Mixed feelings here. NuBilly is growing on me faster than I would’ve thought. I see a spark between him and Victoria—more substantial than fickle Phyllis, who, not too long ago, tried getting Jack back because Billy had only been a… Read more »

Yes Celia and remember Phyllis took Victoria and Billy to court to take the baby away that they had adopted and gave it back to Daniel the whole Billy /Phyllis storyline is bogus but then I think they should have cut their losses and sent both out of town instead of three recasts since Miller left and Gina was totally miscast . I hate the snotty ego pencil neck Billy and Gina seems to think playing Phyllis with a constant frown works ugh!!!

Y&R has been on fire lately. However, and I do not mean to sound critical, but I was not at all excited about Julie Chen’s cameo appearance because I do not know who she is. I have never been a fan of cross promotion, not in this case and not when GH did it with The Chew. It feels somewhat manipulative and it doesn’t grant good entertainment value. That said I love Y&R lately. Love that Phyllis is back to acting like Phyllis and for once, I am kind of rooting for her to win Billy over Victoria. Love the… Read more »

It’s funny that you mention “The Chew.” I can’t watch that show, not even for a minute. I do not care for one host. Now, I love the Food Network. So many hosts are genuine and down to earth. Two on “The Chew” just freak me out. The others just annoy me. I forgot that GH tried to promote the show, with their Pickle Lila.

DMR, I seem to agree with your every word! Celia, of course I don’t hate Lily for real. It’s just when it comes to soaps, I like to use fictional people as some kind of outlet. It sure beats road rage and it’s harmless! But I will re state what I LOVE about Y&R; Jack, he’s a good guy struggling with emotional conflicts and he deserves a decent love interest whose name is not G-L-O-R-I-A! I also love Sharon and probably love her going back to college even more than I love her being paired up with Scott (which I… Read more »

& thank you! I am not a fan of Lily AT ALL! I found it hilarious, that the night before the BIG commercial, she was out with Cane eating and drinking. Now, what model, with a big commercial shoot ahead of them would be out late, eating and drinking? Not a professional one. Just goes to show you, the writers are dumb at times! I like Hilary, too. She’s a believable *itch, where Lily is just plain annoying.

Lily may be one of the most pointless, shallow, superfluous characters of all time.
And that voice, that voice! Nails on a chalk board, I tell ya. I think some call it “vocal fry.”
But everyone just bows down at the alter of Lily. Hillary is worth 100 Lilys.

Wait– how did we in Canada get two days ahead– saw this episode on Tuesday– okay– it was amazing that even when Julie Chen was playing herself it was felt very forced– and I agree for sweeps this Hollywood story is a major let down– no matter who the new Billy is none of them ever capture the chemistry was Villy– so it is time to stop trying to put life into that dead horse– and for the love of all things holy, lets get rid of Cane they have destroyed that character that is painful to watch how pathetic… Read more »

Tell me about it, Immmy. The latest Cane-act-of-cowardice? He had that crucial scene where he was joking with the hockey players, cut out, to undermine Billy!!!!How obvious!!!!! Sooo self-righteous.

Equality was first published in 1990 and was said to address how black women are seen and treated in the eyes of men, and calls for an end to gender and racial inequality.

Emmanuel Acho Replaces Chris Harrison as Host of ‘The Bachelor’ Finale ‘After the Final Rose’ Special

Former NFL linebacker and Fox Sports analyst and host of the weekly web series Uncomfortable Conversations With a Black Man, Emmnauel Acho has gotten the nod to replace longtime ‘Bachelor’ franchise host, Chris Harrison, for this season’s ‘After the Final Rose’ special.

On Saturday, in an Instagram post confirming the news, Acho wrote, “I’ve accepted the Rose and am honored to be hosting the @bachelorabc After the Final Rose this year. It’s been a pivotal season, and this episode will hopefully be one of the most storied shows in TV history. Empathy is needed and change is coming. Share the news! I’ll see y’all then!”

Previously, Chris Harrison revealed that he was stepping aside from The Bachelor after he made controversial remarks to Rachel Lindsey during her interview with him on Extra.  At that time, Harrison and Lindsey, who was the first Black Bachelorette in the series history, were discussing current contestant Rachael Kirkconnell’s controversy, which included photos of her attending an antebellum-themed college party in 2018, and allegedly liking and sharing social media posts with the Confederate flag and Qanon conspiracies.  Harrison’s comments seemed to indicate he felt people were passing judgement on Kirkconnell on this time of ‘cancel culture’ in our society.  Those remarks inflamed viewers and Lindsey.  As Bachelor Nation knows this season featured Matt James as the first Black bachelor ever within the franchise.

As for Acho, he will anchor the After the Rose special airing on Monday, March 15, immediately following the season finale of The Bachelor. He will sit down with James as well as the three finalists Kirkconnell, Michelle Young and Bri Springs, which is said to include talon the past racist remarks made by Kirkconnell and Harrison’s exit for the special.

So, what do you think about ABC’s choice to replace Chris Harrison for the ‘After the Final Rose” special?  Has this whole season of ‘The Bachelor’ backfired when it should have been groundbreaking? Share your thoughts via the comment section below.
