This sets the stage for Nick (Joshua Morrow) and Jack  (Peter Bergman) to both be very concerned for young Summer, while Sharon (Sharon Case)looks on! And as we know, Sharon switched the last paternity test making everyone believe Jack is Summer’s bio-dad, not Nick!

More and more, this is getting too ridiculous. Instead of Summer, Y&R should give this so-called storyline to Courtney (Summer’s VERY ANNOYING BFF). And, besides, of the 2, Courtney is the real TRAIN-WRECK anyway…LOL!!!!! Yep.

Gosh, I could like this story but once again how much proof do people need to see it’s now “The Young and The Depressive”. There are some bright spots and I continually torture my soul and watch, because I’m over a 40 year loyalist to CBS’s daytime. I might have to do as I done back in November & December and skip episodes and only watch for whom I enjoy in performances. It’s sad to watch for performances and not the stories. The stories I’m liking is mighty lean.

We had Fen on drugs, Jack on drugs and now Summer with only 15 month into her tenure from Jill Phuck-up Phelps….geez! Where’s the romance at, don’t give me Tyler & Abby (I like her when in scenes with Abbotts or Newmans) or Noah & Courtney (poor RA, great talent stuck in no win story again) because there wasn’t a setup at all to have the viewers to get to know these characters as couples but it’s like Jill is throwing pasta against the wall to see if any will stick! YR writers take a clue from Days, which is doing it perfectly today. She would like the viewers to be invested in these dark, gloomy and dreaded stories and think it’s entertainment? Not to me at least but disappointment, anger, frustration and bewilderment.

JFP is the worse EP to write for women. At all her soaps she has headed, the women characters are weak, submissive, uninteresting and stereotyped always have women to fall at the feet of the men. She loves to write for male characters and have done a pretty good job for the masculine characters. The balance on YR is whacked, no romance, no levity or humor, no close friendships to say of, JFP makes “islands” on her soaps where most characters only interacting among a few and no feeling of community in Genoa City. Community feel has all characters inter-meshing with one another. They don’t have to have stories together just connections.

Why could Summer not be written as young, intelligent upcoming junior business executive at Jabot. She could be her mother’s daughter and have a side of devious attentions to move up the corporate ladder. But no we get another story coming from a soap about a girl being model, which has been rehashed & rehashed since the 1970s, nothing fresh or creative.

I just want my YR to be somewhat good & entertaining again, I know it will never be as Bill Bell’s YR but please writers stop using old writer’s ideas and put some imagination into the writing and let the viewers be inspired to watch.

OH it could be corrected quite easily by Kay Alden, Jack Smith and Ed Scott, sigh…..Bill’s team!

I like how you think. You should bring some of your insights to GetGlue. Com.
Would love to have you weigh in on the Y&R discussions.

I call it “The Dead And The Depressing”. If everything I have read on Jill Farren Phelps is True, I Wonder How Long CBS Is Going To Allow Jill To Torture Hunter King!

I find it ironic that after all the brouhaha about HK that she now has this big story coming on. If all of this was to work up publicity for her upcoming storyline I think that more than one person should be fired from this show. This whole sceniero reeks of something underhanded. You now what they say in show biz…..there is no such thing as bad publicity. This just leaves a very bad taste in my mouth.

Frances

And mine too, unless they either kill her off or keep her in a coma for a couple mts. and replace her with a more suitable Summer.

So predictable, of course Sharon will be off the show somehow, they won’t let her get away with her support of MM, be sure of that, she will pay but I think she knew what is coming, they knew she was close to MM, so why not give her a story that will eventually send her away, now Hk can get front and center attention without even saying a word, how convenient. If they say this was before all the MM stuff they are full of it.

Frances
Frances

I agree 100 %. I think she (H.K.) will be taking over the screen with one big story line after another just to keep her happy. Well once M.M. is gone I don’t give a hoot what happens. Ratings for Y&R are up right now but that’s because everyone wants to see M.M. final show. The joke is M.T.S (Nikki) & J.M.( Nick Newman) think its because of them. Read their twitter. Like their taking credit. Maybe next time guys hee hee!!

I think it is time to put Jill Farren Phelps in a COMA!!!

Jacqueline…you just made my day…HAHAHAHAHA!!!!! Anyway, I don’t know if putting that fire-breathing JFP in an actual COMA would help. I mean…JFP is so heartless and so arrogant…so much so that she might like the coma. LOL!!!!!

I wish this young actress well in this storyline and hope she really pulls it off. So much pressure on her right now. I’ll be watching.

Frances

Maybe she should cancel her contract and leave while in a coma. That way the pressure is off her.

It seems like the wrong angle for the canvas right now. Last year at this same time we just finished Jack’s popping pills for pain– the we had Fen taking drugs, and now we have Summer. Is Courtney some kind of undercover cop? Or is Alex aka Zach a dirty cop selling drugs? I’m sure this twist has to be related to the Summer popping pills story. If they can related all three “drug stories” to this Courtney and Alex thing — okay, but just as a separate story– it has been down too often in the last year to go down that route yet again.

UGH… at the very least… any modeling stories… should be left to B&B

I think all of the media attention has been leading up to this story line coming out .. Wow…anything to get the fans to stop watching the longest standing # 1 soap in the USA… The story lines are falling into place now…. I have not watched since the day Michael Muhney announced that he had been fired..Been watching the show since its original air date back in 1973… If MM is gone ..Then so am I…

I hope she stays in a coma and never wakes up.

Kill her off the show!!! Take JFP with her. Y&R is going down the tubes very fast. It won’t be long now. Bye Bye 1st place rating.. Hello B&B!!

Not that or matters to me which company picks up the two shows, I just want them both to return. However I am highly disappointed at ABC simply because they owned those shows so they had absolutely NO reason whatsoever to cancel them. Y on earth did they do so???? I REALLY & TRULY HOPE & PRAY that Prospect Park sues the pants & panties off ABC if this ENTIRE ISSUE goes to trial. I LOVE AMC & OLTL…But ESPECIALLY OLTL. I want them both to return in a HURRY!!!!

How sad today. Its getting closer guys. Billy in Adam’s condo knows something and Adam almost cried when Billy left. What marvelous actors and what a shame we lost them and Hunter King I hope she dies in the coma. I can;t stand to see her or Eric Braden.

Sharonda

ITA! After Summer dies we actually find out that neither Nick or Jack is Summer’s dad, but that Danny Romalotti is the father of Summer!

Fran
Fran

That would be a funny one Sharonda. But as long as they kill her off I don’t care. The stupid way the story goes she will probably need a blood transfusion and that will tell the answer. But I made myself a promise once Adam is off at the end of the month so am I & the only thing I’ll vote for is Bold & Beautiful and General hospital.

KAKE

After all the Michael Muhney/Hunter King ongoing saga, I wouldn’t be surprised if they leave her in a coma, let her die, or send her off on a modeling assignment and let her contract run out, like they did Michael Muhney. Never more to see her again.

Fran

Today Chelsea & Adam got married. It was so sad to hear Adam promise Chelsea how he would spend his life making her happy but with tomorrow’s previews as he says goodbye to Jack that old fool that has his big ugly nose in everything walks in. I just knew he would have to spoil the moment. What I like about Victor is the Mute button on the T.V. gets some usage.

Fran…I TOTALLY AGREE!!!!! I cannot stand old Igor…I mean Victor (LOL!!!!!), either!!!!! And…that’s how I feel when that annoying wail-fest Nikki cries and rambles on and on about ‘her son’ Dylan The DULLARD…I reach for the Mute button on my remote control…QUICKLY!!!!!!! Yep.

During the podcast conversation, Eric explains how he has to sometimes suspend belief to make stories work in daytime which included Brady not figuring out that “Nicole” was Kristen, although it certainly re-ignited his thoughts of her!  Plus, he chimes in on the fun he has had working with his co-stars: Arianne Zucker (“Nicole”) and Stacy Haiduk (Kristen/Susan) in their many scenes

Later, Eric tries to remember all of the loves of Brady’s life that crashed and burned, and is posed the question, “What would he think if Days of our Lives SORAS’d Brady’s son, Tate, to an 18-year-old?

Then, the podcast goes behind the scenes for a dressing room segment where Galen Gering (Rafe) welcomes his on-screen sister, Camila Banus (Gabi).  The two banter about their on-screen and off-screen relationship as brother/sister and friends, and how much they value one another as they create the Hernandez sibling dynamic.

DWTS Host, Tom Bergeron Not Happy With “Divisive” Casting Choices Aimed At Sean Spicer

Controversy already erupted upon the announcement on Wednesday of the cast of the new season of Dancing with the Stars.  Most intriguing is that a statement from the longtime ABC series, host, Tom Bergeron revealed his hopes to the producers that their celebrity casting choices would be non-political in nature, especially after the ballroom dance competition had been on a year hiatus from the small screens.

Following the celebrity contestant reveal, which included former White House Press Secretary. Sean Spicer (who worked for President Donald Trump), the host released a statement via his Twitter account.  In it, Bergeron noted that he’d had lunch with the show’s new executive producer and had suggested some ideas for the show. Chief among them was that DWTS should avoid casting someone with “ANY party affiliations.”  When he left that lunch, Bergeron says he was convinced that would be the case.

Bergeron expressed: “It was my hope that ‘DWTS,’ in its return from an unprecedented year-long hiatus, would be a joyful respite from our exhausting political climate and free of inevitably divisive bookings from ANY party affiliations.”  Then he said, “Subsequently (and rather obviously) a decision was made to, as they often say in Hollywood, “go in a different direction”.  He went on to say, “It is the prerogative of producers, in partnership with the network, to make whatever decisions they feel are in the best long term interests of the franchise. We can agree to disagree, as we do now, but ultimately it’s their call. I’ll leave it to them to answer any further questions about those decisions.”

DWTS new EP Andrew Llinares, then said in a statement. “We’ve got a great and diverse cast. We are excited about the season,”

So, what do you think of Bergeron’s hopes for the casting choices of DTWS?  Would you have preferred Sean Spicer to be cut from the cast?  Who would you have liked to have seen cast on the series? Would you want any celeb you like to even go on it any more? Comment below.
