But what about the several weeks before he went to the hospital. Why aren’t there any more episodes for Kristoff? Was he fired or placed on recurring status by Y&R? EB (Victor, Y&R) stated Mal Young/Y&R was edging Kristoff off Y&R.

I wouldn’t miss it. I was hoping we would get a few more episodes with him, one will have to do. This is so very heartbreaking all around. My heart goes out to all of family and friends. He was such a class act, gracious, funny and to think that smile and laugh we have all come to know and love so much is silenced and at rest is just so sad. I too lost my son, December 17, 2017. He was just 30 and left behind a 6 year old boy and a 9 year old daughter. I found myself swallowed up in my grief, all consumed. I had panic attacks daily for months. I couldn’t leave the house. I broke down constantly and I have thought about taking myself out of this world multiple times. Losing a child is incomparable to any loss one could ever experience. We have 6 children and 12 grandchildren, and the loss of one leaves a person feeling unbalanced. Like your anchor is not holding you anymore. You just don’t feel grounded at all. Then there is the shattered heart that never feels complete again. It’s odd how having so many children I love so very much cannot absorb the space one child had in your heart but rather the opposite seems to happen. That place in the heart for that one child, seems to expand and deepen leaving the biggest emptiest void where my love slips into and out of being. I love all my children and grands. I feel bad that the love I have for them feels like it’s draining away and I am still so consumed with grief and loss that I may not not get back to where I need to be with all of them. Kristoff is with Julian and I’m sure they are thrilled to be together again. I pray his family are not overwhelmed by grief the way I am. I wish I could be stronger.

Cora, I was planning to make a comment on Mr. St. John, giving my condolences. And I do that now, in reply to you. I will definitely be watching Wednesday’s episode as well as Friday’s episode. His untimely passing is a tragedy, particularly for his family, friends, and coworkers.

Yet I read your comments, I was moved by them, and I feel compelled to offer you my condolences on the loss of your son at 30. I certainly don’t mean to be intrusive… You have articulately described your grief process, devastating as it is. You can relate to Mr. St. John’s feelings over the loss of his son. Though not touched personally by such a loss, I have witnessed others close to me who have had to deal with such loss, and the repercussions have been significant. As we see, people can react differently to loss, grieving in their own time and in their own way.

But Cora, you are strong! The fact that you have remained strong is a tribute to you! You have survived the loss of your son and your “shattered heart.” I honestly can’t imagine what you’ve been through, but you are still here. You clearly love your family. Your children, grandchildren, and others continue to be your “anchors,” and they need you, as I’m sure you are their anchor. I hope you will reach out to your anchors when you feel down and need to talk. Best wishes for you, Friend!

My condolences to you, Cora. Your beautifully written expression of sympathy for Kristoff St. John as you relate his to your own loss was very moving. I was just speaking of something similar today to a friend; that no matter how big a family or friends, how much love one has and feels, you can never replace one for the other. The loss of someone so loved leaves a gripping ache and longing…and a “vacancy”…a sorrow so deep that it physically hurts.

I’m sure your other children understand your pain right now and know the depth of your love for them all. Allow yourself to grieve without worry or guilt about others; they have you and you them, always.

Being in pain and grieving has nothing to do with not being strong. It has to do with having a heart full of love and loss and sorrow. Let yourself feel and grieve in your own time without the weight of guilt. Not an easy thing to do but I’m so glad to hear you’re surrounded by love.

My best to you..

Cora I too am sorry for your loss. I hope to not be intrusive but have you tried grief counselling or find a group who have gone through what your going through.

Sometimes it’s not that people are just depressed but they are grieving. God bless you.

Dear Michael Fairman:

As us fans process the shock and grief, it suddenly occurred to me that I should offer you my condolences. I never met the but you met with with him many times. I believe you interviewed him numerous times throughout the years.
He was a friend of yours. As you try to offer comfort to his fans, it might be that you need some comfort yourself! I am so sorry for your loss.
One thing I have always appreciated about you is you give your heart and soul as a soap journalist. You have a lot of integrity and are a dying breed it seems.

So, so sad watching Neil and his beloved son, Devon. I was wondering if all the pride and love he had to show his son and daughter Lily, ever since his son’s death, didn’t prolong and add to Kristoff’s pain and grief. The role as loving father, and grand-father to his children and grand-children would have done me in. Though not real, just saying the words and showing the emotion had to have been terribly hard and draining on some level. I so hope I am wrong. I can’t believe today, will be the last time to see that smile and twinkling eyes. He will be missed.

This is really sad! Not just for Y&R but for his family who has been through a lot the past few years. I just hope that he is finally at peace.

Jussie Smollett Scenes Cut From ‘Empire’ In Lieu 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.
