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!

who is Mishael Morgan?

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
Guest

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.

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.

Marcus Coloma On His GH Exit: “I Don’t Know Why That Decision Was Made, But I Don’t Feel Any ill Will and I Didn’t Feel I Got Fired”

This week, GH fans saw Adam Huss returning to the ABC soap opera as Nikolas Cassadine to finish out the rest of the scenes originally intended to be played by Marcus Coloma who ended his three-year run on the show a tad early.

As has been previously reported, Coloma came down with Covid-19 as his final tape days neared, and a decision was made for him to not return to finish off his last run of episodes.

With all the rumors and stances taken by everyone involved, Coloma was the special guest on this week’s episode of the That’s Awesome Podcast hosted by Steve Burton and Bradford Anderson and discussed his departure from the long-running daytime drama series.

Marcus expressed that when he took the role on GH, he was excited to be in that kind of environment (working on a soap opera), and only signed on for three years.  However, as time went by it became more difficult to reconcile leaving when his contract was up, sharing: “You fall in love with the crew and everybody along with it. So, two and a half years in, this decision that was so clear in the beginning is getting complicated.”

The actor added that while, “I knew the end was coming, it wasn’t like GH was saying, ‘Hey, Marcus, we want you to stay.’  There was no negotiation … and all I can say to that is I don’t know why that decision was made, but I don’t feel any ill will and I didn’t feel like I got fired. It just felt like … there was maybe an understanding that I was going to be there for three years. The big surprise is how much it hurt. Even though I knew I was going to leave.”

In the end, Coloma reflected that this may have concluded as it should, adding, “I really do have some big goals and those goals would have never been realized if I would have stayed. That’s not to take anything away from GH because I admire everything about it.”

Watch the episode of That’s Awesome featuring Coloma below.

Then weigh-in, what do you think of Marcus’ thoughts on his exit as GH’s Nikolas Cassadine? Share your thoughts in the comment section.

Now SiriusXM has made my dream a reality with a podcast featuring friends, both old and new, discussing a variety of topics we all face in life, while getting deep with some experts’ views and advice along the way. Not another podcast, this is off camera!”

New episodes of Let’s Talk Off Camera with Kelly Ripa will be available every week on Stitcher, the SXM App, and all major podcast listening platforms beginning in March.

Kelly will be quite busy co-hosting the syndicated talk show Live with Kelly and Ryan, in addition to Let’s Talk Off Camera with Kelly Ripa.
