They let go of Mia to bring back Chelsea. At least Mia was something different. Now we have to go back to the Adam and Chelsea show. Not looking forward to it.

I 2nd that notion 100%!!
Mia was just starting to mix it up again with the other genoa residents!
..with sharon and rey the only intresting angle was the Mia threat.
The only intresting thing about Abby was Mia annoying her.
Dont understand why Tessa is still around

I guess she and Sharon can be mommies to baby Adam !!! The character should have stayed dead after Muhney left it ran out or what ever crap they are telling today ! I have no interest in this actress

I agree with you Kay. I don’t see where or how Adam and Chelsea will be fitting in now. I wonder now with Kevin coming back, are Chloe and baby not to far behind. At least that way Chelsea will have someone to hang with. On a side note, I always thought Chelsea wanted her happy ever after with Adam in Paris. I wonder if bringing Adam and Chelsea back is Victor’s big secret. Maybe now Christian will have a stable home life with them. Nick has been too busy lately playing “Mr. Stud” having one stands with whatever he picks up in bars. I agree the second reserection was enough. How many lives does this guy have

I agree with you. I am not a big fan of Chelsea, but I did like Melissa Claire Egan on AMC. There has only been one Adam for me, MM. The others are just new characters named Adam. He probably will seek custody of Christian, with Daddy’s help, and Nick better start acting like his old self, and not the middle aged skirt chasing jerk, he’s been lately. It’s very unbecoming. I also agree that Adam is in Las Vegas, hidden away by Victor, with the help of Dr.Lipschitz, Louis Litt’s shrink from SUITS.
The actor appeared on this show years ago. Looks like Adam has issues with his memory, and they are trying to restore it, before bringing him back to GC. Can’t believe he is the much talked about SPIDER, when Victoria and Billy were in Vegas.

I wasn’t much of a Chelsea fan either. But I did love her with MM. My favorite Adam/Chelsea SL was when Adam was helping Chelsea get her high school GED. Here he was, a brainiac from Harvard, and he treated her with respect the whole time. And than he proposed to her in the rain. To me that was classic soap opera at its best. I hope this newcomer has better acting skills than Thomas on B&B. Although I must say say as far as recasts go Justin Jartley was excellent in following in MM’s footsteps. I also answered your other reply. Sorry to be so long winded and thanks for the feedback. Happy viewing

No surprise. Y&R benefits from this opportunity to reboot by corralling characters moving on. I just had to believe Chelsea’s hurried exit 15 months ago was so she could be with Adam and one day they would be back. I do not care for resurrections but understand. And I am glad to have Miss Egan return. Will be interesting to see if Chloe follows Kevin now. She would be exonerated in any charge of killing Adam. I am not sure I want everything back to the way it was, but let’s see.

Yawn!
They cut the Rosales family down to a half to rehash Adam and Chelsea again for the 3rd time?!
Mia is so much fun amd Noemi has chemistry with anyone she shares scenes with! From Arturo and Rey obviously to Nikki, Phylis and just recently Jack! She had so much potential as a poor girl clawing her way up the social ladder!..instead we get a rapist conartist theif back and her twice back from the dead boyfriend ?
Boooooo

Mary

I disagree! I cannot wait for Mia to fly off to wherever and stay there. Adam and Chelsea? My Joy knows no bounds.

Hey Mary,
Looks like Mia will be flying off to jail on Monday. Adios to that troublemaker.

on the fence with this mal young had many flaws but i don’t know if josh griffith is doing it for me i feel he destroyed the outstanding kyle in 2 episodes and sorry i may be in the minority but i am not a lola fan don’t know if Chelsea is needed and don’t get me started about the new crowd with devon he can show everyone of them the door

Karen

I totally agree with you, I am not a Lola fan either. I do believe we are in the minority on that one.
Love Kyle, but I hate how he used Summer for Lola and Lola is not the goody girl she is supposed to be. She could go with Arturo and I wouldn’t miss her.

Mary

Lola is a breath of fresh air.

Sorry Mary, Lola, to me is only a breath of fresh air, if you use some air freshener too.
First of all, with all the hype of being a virgin, she kind of should act that way. Her kissing technique is overwhelming. Poor Kyle looks like he’s scared of being swallowed whole. Her sexual appetite is scary.

YEAH!!!
Chelsea has been soooo missed! Hoping for amazing chemistry with the New Adam (Missy was awesome with both Michael and Justin). Summertime should be fun!

Very pleased Melissa / Chelsea is returning to Y&R, Like her spunk & attitude. Hopefully Mark’s incarnation of Adam does his predecessors justice.

Good news. I just hope I like the new Adam.

I hope that I like the new Adam , also , Momo.

I wish that Michael Muhney was returning to the role Adam Newman. Did Y&R even ask him?

I wish that , too, Mary.

When Chelsea left, I said she was going straight to Adam. Is she returning with him? My outrage was over her leaving Johnny….yes, she did give him up, I know…..
However, she gave birth to him, and living in the same town is, at least, better than moving away. I am not a fan of Chelsea’s. Never was!! Social climber…..
Are they in Vegas? Is this what Victor’s subterfuge is all about?

Angelica McDaniel OUT as CBS Head of Daytime As Network Restructures

There has been a swift turn in the CBS Daytime hierarchy.  In news this evening, CBS Head of Daytime Angelica McDaniel has exited the network and her position, following a restructuring which dissolved her position.

According to Deadline:  McDaniel’s position is being eliminated as the network is folding the daytime team into the Current Programming department headed by Amy Reisenbach.”  Angelica had been with the company for nine years.

Reportedly, McDaniel’s last day at CBS was today.  The move by CBS now makes it similar to how ABC handles their soap opera, General Hospital as it is overseen by Vicki Dummer. who oversees all scripted series for the day-pa

Kelly Kahl, President of CBS Entertainment said in a stateement: “Angelica McDaniel championed our daytime series line up with creativity, passion and energy and broke new ground by helping launch the Network’s first daytime talk show in years while respecting the long history and tradition of the dramas and game shows. We appreciate her many contributions and wish her well on her next endeavors.”

McDaniel oversaw The Young and the Restless (who’s ratings have been on a decline of late) and The Bold and the Beautiful for the network.  She also was responsible for championing The Talk to daytime television.  Angelica was promoted over a short period of time by industry standards to her position after her accomplishments.

GMA’s Lara Spencer Says, “I Screwed Up” As She Apologizes For Insensitive Prince George Ballet Joke

After a major backlash, Good Morning America‘s Lara Spencer apologized Monday morning on-air during the ABC morning show, over comments she made last week over now six-year-old Prince George taking ballet classes.

In her apology, Spencer told GMA viewers: “I screwed up.  The comment I made about dance was insensitive, it was stupid, and I am deeply sorry.”

Several key figures in the dance community spoke out following her remarks, and Spencer herself also spoke to them over the last few days telling viewers: “I have listened, I have learned about the bravery it takes for a young boy to pursue a career in dance.”

From there, a previously recorded group interview Spencer conducted with three male dancers; Robbie Fairchild (Cats), Travis Wall (So You Think You Can Dance) and Fabrice Calmels (Joffrey Ballet), was shown as each expressed their personal journey and often the humiliation they felt as young boys when they were laughed at and made fun of because of dance.

All of this was kicked off by Spencer making a comment during the Thursday ‘Pop News’ segment on GMA, in which she talked about Prince George’s  “curriculum”.

Lara said in her commentary: “In addition to the usual first- and second-grade things like math, science and history, the future King of England will be putting down the Play-Doh to take on religious studies, computer programming, poetry and ballet, among other things.” She then paused which gave way to chortles in the audience and went on to say: “Prince William says Prince George absolutely loves ballet. I have news for you, Prince William: We’ll see how long that lasts. I mean, he might! He might end up … Between the religious studies and the computer programming, I just want to go back to the Play-Doh!”
