Is it like a pre-requisite for all the ex AMC stars to go to Y&R? Cliff, Angie, Mia, Bianca, Richie Novak, Jonathan Lavery and now Annie…. Apparantly, Y&R loves fishing from the AMC talent pool.

CBS Soaps are the top in the ratings and have the best production values of ANY soap on TV…. ABC and NBC soaps’ production values really should take notice. NBC is headed in the right direction, but it’s gonna take a lot ot knock CBS out.

yes cbs soaps rocks. i think she is a good actress but i would prefer to see for example Victoria Rowell to come back who is a legend of the show…you can see the ratings are going down and down for the y&r…

It is the writing that results in the lower ratings in this instance. I cannot say overall I have enjoyed the yarns being spun in recent years. I loved Victoria Rowell on Y&R and her strength is sorely missed.

What the heck more new people? The new people I did like, Maura (who was new to me) and now Tristan are fired. Whats the point of hiring new people if you fire the ones that work out the best?

I ‘ve watched Y&R regularly since the start but rarely now days. Jill and Colin kept me checking in, they were a hoot , but that’s ending , and all signs point to a ending I have no interest in. Y&R has become miserable to watch, what a shame.

Y&R is a great show with a wonderful and talented cast. Story lines are good, leaving you wanting more and more. Love, love, love Michael Muhney, Melissa Claire Egan and Steve Burton. Also will very much miss Michelle Stafford. The show will not be the same without her and she’s not replaceable. Perhaps Michelle will reconsider and stay on. So sorry about Jeanne Cooper’s passing. Another tremendous loss for the show. She won’t be forgotten!! Carry on, Y&R.

B&B’s Katherine Kelly Lang and Ashley Jones Reveal They Want Brooke & Bridget To Deal with Their Shared Past with Deacon

Katherine Kelly Lang (Brooke) of The Bold and the Beautiful was last Friday’s guest on BOLD Live, and during her interview with B&B supervising producer and host, Casey Kasprzyk, none other than Ashley Jones (Bridget) made a surprise appearance.

Once Jones arrived on the livestream (late in the episode), the discussion turned to wishing that Brooke and Bridget would get the opportunity to deal with the fallout from years ago between mother and daughter.

If fans recall, Bridget was married to Deacon (Sean Kanan), and then he had an affair with Brooke, and then Brooke became pregnant with Hope.

On BOLD Live, Lang said, “There is so much good story there.”  She then added, “I honestly feel Brooke and Bridget never dealt with that. It’s honestly something that was pushed down.”

Ashley shared on the current state of B&B’s episodes: “This is the juiciest the shows been in a long time.”  And on Brooke/Deacon/Bridget, Ashley concurred with Kelly: “Oh. 100% … they never dealt with it.”

Watch BOLD Live with Katherine Kelly Lang and special guest Ashley Jones below.

Then let us know, would you like to see Bridget return and in-turn bring with her some meaty scenes between mother and daughter, especially given Brooke’s temptation with the bottle again? Share your thoughts in the comment section.
