I’m happy for Karla Mosley, but this is the most Brad Bell has written for her in almost a year, and this is after he declared her the new leading lady of B&B. I wish Mr. Bell would stop writing for the Spencer sons and the woman they both love and start writing for the rest of the canvas.

I agree. It was such a refreshing change when Maya’s family was introduced. I enjoyed the whole story about Sasha coming out. The actor who plays Maya’s dad is an excellent actor. It seems to me that they are always finding such wonderful talent, only to have them front and center for but a minute, and then they are back to letting Wyatt and Liam bitch and cry over Steffie. Correctcme if I’m wrong, but I think their was only one brief scene of the grandmother’s doting over the greatly anticipated baby. And now that ivy is back, Liam and the motley crew are going to be more prominent than ever. I don’t understand why they are bringing Thorne and Felicia back. They will have their say for five minutes, and then get shoved out the door again. The Liam/Steffie roller coaster is just starting, with no end in sight.

I love B&B. As much as I love Steffi, Wyatt, Liam, Quinn and Eric, I would love to see more Rick and Maya.

No thanks. Just another example of how this show is still telling a very false story about transgender people by using a woman. It is disrespectful and degrading. The only way to have effectively told any part of this story would have to use a real man/transgennder to play Maya. The show gets publicity and gets to pretend it is tackling a social issue and being relevant, and claiming to make people think…and examine prejudices! This cast and crew had to do NONE of that!! They covered it in rainbows and fairy dust. Do you think Jacob Young would have been so eager to make out with a man?? I highly doubt it. The lack of airtime or any kind of meaningful story cod Maya has been reduced to this stunt. Ya…great schlock t.v. Mr. BELL. Now what? Didnt think that far ahead, did you?

Absolutely completely right on with everything you stated. Everybody going crazy over this great earth shattering story all a sham just like his story about Caroline’s two Moms. Now he is back again with the ad nauseaum love triangle of Liam, Steffy & Wyatt. Same dialogue every day I can go months without watching catch a episode and realize haven’t missed a thing.

Maya was wonderful singing the National Anthem. Please, please get rid of Steffy. or give her a storyline that doesn’t involve weak Liam. Wyatt is a better man for her. Stop repeating the same stories from years past. Why can’t you at least allow ONE couple stay happy for years & years. The story line is really dumb. Give us more of Maya, Rick & their little girl. Ivey and Liam make a very beautiful couple. Love her accent.

While Karla Mosley did very well, I wonder if this was in response to Colin Karpernick refusal to salute when the National Anthem was sung. Baseball season is almost over. ijs

I tweeted my disgust at B&B going POLITICAL this way! Especially using Karla Mosley! I don’t wonder if this is a response to Colin Karpernick, I know it is. I registered my plans to boycott B&B for such stupidity! Not a wise move at all! I have been watching for many years, but you lost me with this move!

I don’t think it really fitted in with the story.

I didn’t like Karla’s phrasing on some of the anthem, but overall she sang well.

Jussie Smollett Cut From Rest Of Season Of EMPIRE; Tells Cast He’s Innocent Of Charges

Following the turn of events for Jussie Smollett (Jamal Lyon, Empire) where he was arrested and charged on multiple felony counts and then posted bail, the producers of Fox’s sudsy primetime drama have decided to pull him from the remaining two episodes of the season.

“The events of the past few weeks have been incredibly emotional for all of us,” executive producers Lee Daniels, Danny Strong, Brett Mahoney, Brian Grazer, Sanaa Hamri, Francie Calfo, and Dennis Hammer said in a statement this morning following the legal fallout for Jussie Smollett and his arrest stemming from an alleged hate crime reported on January 29th that he staged on himself.

The producers went on to say: “Jussie has been an important member of our Empire family for the past five years and we care about him deeply. While these allegations are very disturbing, we are placing our trust in the legal system as the process plays out. We are also aware of the effects of this process on the cast and crew members who work on our show and to avoid further disruption on set, we have decided to remove the role of ‘Jamal’ from the final two episodes of the season.”

This happened even after Smollett returned to work on Thursday, and even after the actor/singer reportedly apologized to the cast and crew of Empire for any embarrassment the recent allegations may have caused, but at the same time, sources reported, that he maintained that he was innocent,

According to CNN: “The person at the meeting said they were shocked and dismayed that Smollett stuck to his story of innocence. For the most part, the source said, Smollett paraphrased what was in the statement that his attorney put out that afternoon, blaming the legal system and the media for his woes.”

So, what do you think of the Empire producers decision to cut Smollett from the last two shows of the season? What do you think of Jussie still maintaining his innocence to the cast? Comment below.

‘Empire’ Star Jussie Smollett Turns Himself In After Being Charged With Allegedly Filing False Police Report & Facing Criminal Charges

In major developments in the last several hours, Jussie Smollett (Jamal Lyon, Empire) turned himself in to Chicago police early Thursday morning, just hours after he was charged with disorderly conduct for allegedly staging a racist and homophobic attack against himself late in January on the streets in Chicago.

In a press conference currently being conducted by the CPD supervisor, Eddie Johnson and Commander Edward Wodnick, they revealed that Smollett turned himself in quietly and without issue.   In addition, the Chicago PD are outlining the events and timeline that led to Smollett’s arrest.

Smollett turned himself in at the Central District police station in Chicago at 5 a.m., police reported.  Thursday morning, Smollett was scheduled to appear for a bail hearing Thursday at 1:30pm central time on a felony charge of a class 4 disorderly conduct, and with that charge Smollett could face up to 1.5 years in prison.

Jussie’s attorney’s released the following statement on Wednesday night after Smollett was charged by the Chicago PD: “Like any other citizen, Mr. Smollett enjoys the presumption of innocence, particularly when there has been an investigation like this one where information, both true and false, has been repeatedly leaked. Given these circumstances, we intend to conduct a thorough investigation and to mount an aggressive defense.”

Smollett reported that he has been attacked as he was walking home around.  He claimed two masked men shouted racist and homophobic slurs as they beat him, put a noose around his neck, and poured a chemical on to him.

Enter two brothers, Ola and Abel Osundairo, who Smollett knew, who were arrested last week, but later released as suspects. The two brothers told police they helped stage the attack with Smollett.  They were paid $3,500 to orchestrate the attack by Smollett.  In their press conference, the Chicago PD revealed that they have the check as evidence were Smollett paid the brothers that sum.

The brothers left for Nigeria hours after the attack, and were arrested days later when they returned to Chicago.   On Wednesday, they testified to a grand jury. Smollett was later charged with disorderly conduct.

Could Thad just be back to appear as a ghost?  Will he come back alive and continue his abusive ways towards Victoria?

So, what do you think of J.T. coming back to Genoa City … or is he? How will this story play out now that it is in the hands of head writer, Josh Griffith? Comment below,
