If you have not seen yesterday’s episode of The Young and the Restless you may not want to read any further!  If you have, than you know that none other than Carmine Basco as played by Marco Dapper is alive and kicking!

Dapper shared with Soap Opera Digest, his surprise that he was returning to the CBS daytime drama relating, “There was always talk of maybe but nothing was ever matter of fact. I figured I was done. ”

The sexy star then revealed he received a star telling him he was reprising the role of Carmine: “They contacted me direct and basically said, ‘FYI, you’re coming back but don’t tell anybody!”

So is Carmine Basco going to have nine lives just like crazy Sheila Carter before him in Genoa City? What do you think about the Dapper sighting on Friday’s Y&R? Let us know!

there is nothing wrong with admiring beefcake!

Beefcake loses its charm when the beefcake torments and tries to rape and kill. There are plenty of pics of Dapper for some to pant over on line. We don’t need him on the show. What womern would be with a man who will tape them without their knowledge and stalk and humiliate them? Carmine talks a good game but he is a major loser. Wish MD success but not on Y&R.

Hhhh Linda, excuse me but it a soap opera, and they are made from drama, and Carmine is bad boy drama..
I saw Dapper nakid, very nice indeed.. 🙂

((Carmine is a make believe guy, no need to be angry over a fictional dude.. he ain’t real, honest…. 🙂

Maybe all of Michael Muhney’s obsessed followers will find relief in this? Dapper is about 200x hotter than Muhney on his best day.

And he doesn’t tweet that he is God on a daily basis. 🙂

ummhh – no ! Carmine is one thing…. but… he certainly is not Michael Muhney

Marlena, Adam was played by a brilliant actor who managed to inject nuances and subtlety into his performance. Adam is a deeply flawed character but even when he is doing something deplorable, you always see his vulnerability. Dapper as Carmine is one dimensional and a mustache twitching villain with cookie cutter good looks. In short, as a villain, he’s a bore. I guess he’s “hot” if you like that sort of thing, but how long can you stare at a pin up model? I follow MM on Twitter and don’t recall him having a God complex at all.

@ Harry I use to read some of MM’s twitter I just always found him to be a little quirky & sarcastic but I never found him to have a God complex. Their are a whole lot of actors who will go nameless who pick fights or are constantly showing their bodies in pictures I find that a real turn off. I will be glad when everyone will be allowed to put the MM stuff behind them he had a good 4 years now it is time for him to have another chance to move past this.

No longer watch the show after the 1/30 episode. DOOL is looking really good with amazing actors returning and joining the show. Sorry Y&R, FIRE JFP and I will begin to watch again.

I have seen Marco Dapper in other rolls and he is very good however the roll Y&R has him playing sucks.. He could get much better than Carmine..
anyways, I and I’m sure many others knew he would be back, it was obvious that Carmine was alive etc..

I’m glad he is back but it means I will have to FF through more of awful Lauren, now..

It wasn’t a surprise to me. I realized the character wasn’t really dead months ago. I have no idea where they are going with this. That worthless slut Lauren is the cause of all this trouble by getting involved with the dirt bag bartender in the first place. She needs to suffer big time.

Linda
Guest
Linda

What do you think she has been doing the last 9 months? I guess being kidnapped, nearly raped and killed is not suffering? What a double standard. Women get called nasty names and men get a pass for cheating. I am tired of the Baldwins being dumbed down and made to look bad over a slimy bartender. Carmine is not needed on the show.

LOL he is all make believe don’t take him so seriously..
He is a soap character bad dude 🙂

Those killer raper guys make good soap character’s and they are needed so I don’t fall asleep while watching Lauren whine and whine over Fen 24/7 months on end.. ..

Llanviewer717

By no means do I feel men should be given a pass for cheating on their wives. The episode between Billy and Kelly broke my heart and mad me sick. My complaint against Lauren is getting involved with the stupid bartender in the first place. Michael was the DA and their stupid brat kid,Fen, was accused to pushing Jamie off the roof. Michael and Paul BEGGED Fen to tell them his side of the story and he wouldn’t talk. All he did was get huffy as if to say “how dare you question me.” The brat deserved to go to… Read more »

I agree partly with you Linda…Lauren has suffered but who’s fault is it really…she is a married woman, and if she truly loved Micheal she wouldnt have cheated on him…but no woman, no matter what, deserves to be nearly raped or killed!!!

jaybird369
Guest
jaybird369

Llanviewer717…I totally agree with you about one thing…Michael and Lauren’s kid Fen is such a stupid (and spoiled) brat. And, on yesterday’s episode of Y&R, the charges against Fen were dropped and Fen was set free. HUH????? That is so insulting!!!!! They should of kept Fen’s stupid and spoiled ass locked up. Fen is so annoying and so out of control. An idea: Michael and Lauren (and the show’s writers) should ship Fen off to a boarding school far far far away. ENOUGH IS ENOUGH!!!!!!

I really dislike the character of Carmine but I feel that he could have been played so much better by another actor, because most of the reason I dislike Carmine is due to Marco Dapper’s acting. Seriously, I don’t know where they found this guy but aside from his looks (which the ladies love), he has very limited acting abilities. If they had hired Trevor St. John or another actor good at playing crazy to play the role, I think he would have caught on more with the fans, especially me. Aside from Fen being free now, there is no… Read more »

I think Carmine Balsco should have been the next Brad Carlton. Hooking up w/ the Newman (Summer) and Abbott (Abby) heiresses and having a child by one or both of them (Summer when she’s older of course). Then Carmine coould have wormed his way into Jabot & or NE. I don’t care about Carmine being a crazy, he’s way more expendable that way.

Who didn’t see this coming? The “mystery” has been poorly plotted from the get-go and everything has pointed to his return for months.

And Carmine is NO Sheila Carter.

You’re absolutely right, this mystery story about Carmine’s “murder” was poorly conceived and executed. Sheila was amazing, entertaining and crazy. Carmine, however, is a sleazy, slimy and stupid bartender. Marco Dapper has nowhere near the acting caliber of Kimberlin Brown. Carmine is a mafia-related sleaze from Jersey, who has no past established connection to Sheila. He was brought on the show by MAB as Angelina’s ex. If they wanted someone to be connected to Sheila, they should have hired an actor like Trevor St. John and had him play Sheila’s brother from the get-go. I really hope he’s only on-screen… Read more »

If I had any flicker of doubt about quitting Y&R after the the 30th of January, it has been extinguished by the return of Sheila, er, I mean Carmine.
Nothing against the actor, but this is redundantly boring. It seems the Y&R writers don’t know how to write a storyline for Lauren which doesn’t involve her being harassed, tortured and stalked by some psycho, who for some unfathomable reason, is obsessed with the very ordinary, unremarkable Lauren. Lauren–the quintessential nut magnet.

Finally, someone stated the obvious. That he is being brought back to clear Fenmore. I hardly watch this show anymore as the writing, directing and even the acting has gone way down hill. Can’t fault the actors, they are not being given quality scripts and direction to work with. But I watched Thursdays episode for the Adam/Billy scenes and was surprised to find out that Fenmore was back in jail. It sickens me to see how bad this program has become. It used to have it’s own style and substance and now comes off like a thrown together, thoughtless production.… Read more »

Nearly jumped out of my chair when I saw him back on the screen!!! His storyline when he was hitting the sheets with Lauren was the only thing worth watching last year imo. Josh botched the climax of the story by making him supercrazed. Marco is tooo hottt to waste , put him back in abbys orbit and do a hot triangle with him , abby and tyler!!! Carmine and tyler in a heavy and hot triangle with abby would melt our screens!!! Maybe abby could redeem Carmine by having him model for jabot. that way he could even interact… Read more »

Just more evidence of unimaginative story lines and lazy writers. After 40 years, I hung it up last week…once I saw Carmine, I knew there was no chance of turning this mess around.

Glad he’s back.

BTW, Fenmore would be in protective custody, not in general population if his life were in danger. Him pleading guilty to murder just so he can go to another prison is so stupid!

I knew a long time ago that Carmine wasn’t dead but thought he was framing Fen himself not working with the feds and going in the witness protection program. Carmine could have been an interesting character but turning him to this ugly sleaze ruin the character for me. I hope he is only back to “save Fen”—- because I am- really sick of Lauren as the victim story line– starting with that guy who buried her alive when she was younger, to Sheila, to Daisy, and now Carmine– can’t Lauren have a different story– please— please– please.

LOL, it will be revealed that he’s Sheila’s long lost brother!!!!! They share the same criminal father that Sheila never knew. She was always angry at her mother (just trying to protect Sheila from the mob life), for taking her away from her “daddy”, hence all the crazy Sheila stuff. Just kidding of course. I guess I should forget about that career as a soap writer…

I’m glad he’s back. He’s really creepy!

First of all the guy is incredibly hot. Daytime is FILLED with actors who aren’t the best at the craft, but entertain. And that’s what Marco does.

The Baldwin marriage breakup because of him was the best YR storyline last year, and even though it went a little south with him stalking Lauren and then his death…yes, it’s a SOAP, so there is PLENTY for this hottie to do.

We knew he wasn’t dead anyway, c’mon people! And STILL it was a great soap moment to have Michael at his door delivering one line “surprise”. Awesome!

Was there ever really any doubt that Carmine was still alive, that had to be one of the most telegraphed twists of all time which is strange because was anybody really clamoring for Carmine’s return? he is a lousy villain and a lousy character – Daisy was a better villain and she was terrible, if they want to bring back a real villain, bring back Patty or Ricky Williams – Carmine was just plain lame. By the way, the FBI put Carmine in witness protection and then was just going to let Fen go to jail for his ‘murder’ –… Read more »

What a complete waste of actor and character alike. He was turned from a charming lovable goomba bad boy into a garden variety psycho and rapist for no reason. For a cougar Lauren is hot but I doubt her loins have the power to send Carmine over the edge. The story could have gone in so many interesting and different ways…dude has mommy issues because his mom left…or dallying with cougars gave him a new appreciation so he wanted Jill next….or reconnect him with Abby and get her out of dullsville. But noooooo…those things would take creativity. When in doubt…resort… Read more »

‘Dr. Oz Show’ Taken Off the Air in NY and PA Due to Senate Run; Daphne Oz ‘The Good Dish’ to Fill Time Slot

In light of his announcement that he will be running as a republican senate candidate in the state of Pennsylvania, Dr Oz’s daytime talk and medical show, The Dr. Oz Show, is being taken off the air in key markets in New York and Pennsylvania, according to the Fox Station Group.

According to Deadline’s sources, Fox TV Stations proceeded with pulling the Sony Pictures TV-distributed syndicated series because of the prospect of being forced to give other political candidates running in Pennsylvania equal time, expressing that it “would be a nightmare for us, there was no way we were going to be able to do that.”

In its place, look for Dr. Oz’s daughter, Daphne Oz, to be the fill-in with her show.

Starting on January 18th, Daphne’s The Good Dish, will take over the time slot during the duration of her father’s political campaign.  This potentially could go all the way through November of 2022, if Oz remains in the race through election day.

Last fall, Fox TV Stations renewed The Dr. Oz Show for two more years which gave it life through 2023.

So, do you think more stations will go bye-bye and have The Dr. Oz show pulled? What do you think of daughter Daphne’s series as the fill-in? Comment below.

General Hospital Has No Immediate Plans to Recast the Role of Jason Morgan Following Steve Burton’s Departure

According to a report from Variety, ABC’s General Hospital is not planning on recasting the role of Jason Morgan at this time, following the exit of Steve Burton.

The two-time Daytime Emmy winning star was let-go from the soap after not adhering to their Covid-19 vaccine mandate.

The mandate went into effect on November 1st and in story, the series wrote Burton out, but still left wiggle room for the character to return.

Jason was buried under a rubble when a cave collapsed on top of him, while he was trying to apprehend arch-villain, Peter August (Wes Ramsey).

In his exit announcement on Instagram, Burton did express: “Maybe one day if these mandates are lifted, I can return and finish my career as Jason Morgan.”  Steve had played the role of Jason since 1991, but with a four-year break at Y&R, before returning to the role in 2017.

Now whether down the line, GH does eventually recast Jason remains to be seen.

So, it looks like Jason will be off the canvas for awhile, and Port Charles will continue to grieve for him.

So, what are your thoughts? Should GH leave Jason off the canvas? Should they recast down the line?  Comment below.
