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.

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… Read more »

soapqueenforever88 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… Read more »

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… Read more »

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

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

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.

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.

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.

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

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?

Ingo Rademacher Speaks Out On His Dismissal From GH Sharing: “I Was Hoping to Play Jax For Another 10 or 25 Years and Unfortunately, That’s Not Going to Happen”

For the first time since he was fired for not adhering to General Hospital’s and Disney/ABC’s Covid-19 vaccine mandate, Ingo Rademacher (Ex-Jax), addressed his exit from the soap opera via an “official video” message on his Instagram account.

Ingo expressed: “I’m sorry that I didn’t put out this video earlier, but this is about thanking you guys, the fans of the show and also the GH crew and cast. I was on the show for 25 years. They were like my family a lot of the people there. I was hoping to play Jax for another 10 or 25 years and unfortunately, that’s not going to happen. I want to thank you guys for sticking with Jax for 25 years and I’m sorry that I’m not there anymore to play Jax, which is still something that I am trying to process  … it’s just kind of crazy.”

Rademacher also took aim at his former co-star, Nancy Lee Grahn (Alexis) for announcing on Twitter that he was no longer on the show, before he had a chance to do so, which he says was a huge disappointment to him given that they worked together for 25 years.

He went on to say how he appreciated all the positive comments from the fans adding, “A lot of you come on there to say that you’re vaccinated but stand for medical freedom, I love hearing that, because I believe it should be a choice.”  Ingo continued to express his view, “I don’t agree with vaccine mandates or corporations ever being able to mandate a vaccine to keep your job.”

The actor closed with another nod to the viewers of GH adding, “Thank you so much for supporting me for 25 years. I will have more news later on, but for now, just wanted to thank all of you amazing fans. Thank you.”

You can watch Rademacher’s full statement via his IG post below.  Then, let us know what you thought of Ingo’s long-awaited exit message in the comment section.

OLTL Alum Arlene Dahl Dead At 96, Son Lorenzo Lamas Shares: “She Was The Most Positive Influence In My Life”

Another loss for the soap world and its extended family.  Arlene Dahl, who had a notable career in film and television, and who appeared on both One Life to Live and All My Children, has passed away at the age of 96.

Her son, former Falcon Crest and The Bold and the Beautiful star, Lorenzo Lamas (Ex-Lance and Ex-Hector, respectively), shared the news via his Facebook page: “Mom passed away this morning in New York. She was the most positive influence on my life. I will remember her laughter, her joy, her dignity as she navigated the challenges that she faced. Never an ill word about anyone crossed her lips. Her ability to forgive left me speechless at times. She truly was a force of nature and as we got closer in my adult life, I leaned on her more and more as my life counselor and the person I knew that lived and loved to the fullest. My sympathies go to her loving husband @marcrosennyc who, for the last 37 years, made her life so wonderful and joyous. Love you mom forever ♥️ #ArleneDahl #Moviestar #legend #mom #RIP”

Dahl came on to One life to Live as Lucinda Schenk Wilson, the selfish and manipulative mother of Mimi King played by Kristin Meadows.  Arlene made appearances on the ABC soap starting in 1981 and eventually was offered a one-year contract that took her through till 1984. A decade later, Dahl came on to play Lady Lucille on All My Children for a short time.

On One Life to Live, Arlene mixed it up with Phillip Carey’s Asa Buchanan and Jeremy Slate’s Chuck Wilson.  Dahl is also well-known as one of the regular panelists on the game show, What’s My Line?

While still working in TV and films, Arlene branched out into beauty and cosmetics, eventually becoming an executive and beauty columnist.

Throughout her life, Arlene was married six times.  She had been married to Marc Rosen since 1984 and they remained together till her death.  She is survived by her son Lorenzo, two other children, grandchildren, and great-grandchildren.

Watch Arlene with Phillip Carey in scenes from OLTL below.

As the World Turns and Guiding Light Favorite, Lisa Brown, Passes Away at 67

(UPDATED) In just more heartbreaking news in the soap world in 2021, we have lost another beloved performer.  Lisa Brown, who was so noteworthy for her spunky and emotional turns as Guiding Light’s Nola Reardon from 1980-1985, and later as Iva Snyder on As the World Turns from 1986-1994, has died.

Brown passed away this week on November 24th at the age of 67 following a brief illness.  The news came via the As the World Turns Facebook Fan Group and Soap Opera Digest.

This comes just two months later following the death of her former on-screen love interest Michael Tylo (Ex-Quinton, Guiding Light), who passed away in late September.

Those that followed Lisa’s career know she also starred in the Broadway Musical 42nd Street, while still playing Nola each and every day on Guiding Light.

She is survived by her children: James “Buddy” Nielsen, and daughter Victoria from her first husband Tom Nielsen (Ex-Floyd, GL) in addition to her two grandchildren, Penelope Ruiz-Nielsen and Brayden Hopf, and her second husband Brian Neary.

Brown’s on-screen ATWT daughter, Martha Byrne  (Ex-Lily) simply tweeted, “My heart is broken.”

On Friday, Lisa’s son, Buddy Nielsen, posted a touching tribute to his mother, where he revealed that she passed away due to cancer.

Buddy shared: “My Mom passed away the day before Thanksgiving after a very quick battle with cancer. This all happened really fast and wasn’t expecting it. I’ve been MIA as I’ve been back and forth between LA and NJ as she has been in and out of the hospital the last couple weeks. This dream we live, we are all subject to the suffering, aging and death. It’s not to be morose but to understand that we have finite time and must take care with what we do and how we do it. To be able to be with someone at their last breath is truly beautiful. We must not fear death as without it we would never be born and experience the 10,000 joys and 10,000 sorrows. Our existence is both small and vast all at the same time. We are tiny but immense. I know she is here but no longer in her physical form, what we do in love we leave in death. My beautiful daughter and unborn son are her legacy.”

Share your condolences to Lisa’s family, and let us know of your remembrances of this wonderful actress who gave us so many memorable moments throughout her career via the comment section below. But first, watch Lisa in some of her classic scenes from ATWT and GL.
