So sexy

This is going to be so good…and with new writer Susan Banks on board, I think things might turn around a bit for this show.

Love this actor, especially on GH and as another famous Susan Banks would say, he’s a bad,bad,bad man!

A great actor. Excelled on both DH and GH.

The character assassination of Paul Hornsby was second only to that of Rick Webber’s in GH history. Neither was the ultimate bad guy they twisted them into at their respective demises.

You are absolutely right about both Paul and Rick. It’s great to see Richard again, I hope the Y&R writers do him justice, he was amazing on GH and is a fantastic actor. I always found myself cheering for him.

Richard is 62 years old, and one hot daddy. Welcome back to Daytime sexy daddy.

yup– I’m going to like the Burgi man..
((ahaa the Burgi man- get it? ahaa!))
I’m sure I will be cheering him to kick some Newman arse!
And– no way is the child Kyles, nope.
He is in no way ready to be a daddy, he will be kept single
and childless for some time to come..
The overly brain-dead Abby baby story wreaks of stupid.
nuff of that baby stuff..

I am excited about this part!! This show needs a BAD villain!!!!!!!!

maybe there is hope for this show yet

Good choice!

Finally some good news on the y n r front!
A good looking mature actor! Hopefully he can makes move on Newman and Jabot since both empires are missing that mature adult vibe. With only Summer, Kyle and Victoria holding down these positions it really lacks the bustle of times gone by when those floors were flooded with all the usual characters, Jill, Brad, Neil, Ryan , Ash, John, Jack etc…sigh
Also add a promising new writer Susan banks and I
hope to read Josh Griffith fired soon! Fingers crossed.

Fantastic casting grab! Looking forward to Y&R improving with these new additions. And please find a strong and sexy 60 year old for Jack! I continue to wish for Beth Chamberlain, but she lives on the East Coast.

This is exciting news. Locke will eat Kyle for breakfast and Jack for lunch.

Mark Y
Too bad he’s married. He’d be a good catch for Victoria and then she could stop running after Billy. I don’t think he’s too old, compared to the sixties Jack with the thirty yr. old Sally. Gee, good thing Kyle doesn’t take after his dad, he’d be chasing Faith.

He was so good on GH! Great to see him coming to Y&R. I hope he shakes up both the Newmans and the Abbotts. Put “Vyle” in his place and wipe that smirk off his face!

Richard is the perfect person to occupy this character. He plays these type of characters so well.

Want the character to hook up with Nicki. She needs some new loving.

Love Richard Burgi, he’s an excellent actor and he’s extremely handsome. He’s the perfect person to go up against Victor Newman, fearlessly. I hope he stays on Y & R permanently. His character is the perfect “kick” the soap needed to add great spice and variety and intelligence.

Want a man like him


The Bold and the Beautiful’s Jacqueline MacInnes Wood to Visit ‘The Talk’

Hot on the heels of this week’s shocking and controversial episodes of The Bold and the Beautiful, three-time Daytime Emmy-winner, Jacqueline MacInnes Wood (Steffy Forrester) is one of the guests on the upcoming Monday March 4th episode of The Talk.

Wood, has been at the epicenter of the storyline, which saw this past Monday that Steffy presumably stabbed and killed villainess Sheila Carter (Kimberlin Brown) to her death. Following Sheila’s apparent demise, Steffy’s husband Finn (Tanner Novlan), who is the biological son of Sheila, finds out his wife stabbed his mother.

Instead of showing more concern for his wife almost being attacked by Sheila, Finn has shown his ‘inner-Sheila and can’t seem to get over the fact that Steffy ‘killed’ his birth mom, which is causing trouble in their marriage and as fans ultimately believe, will lead Finn into the arms of Hope (Annika Noelle).

Clearly, Jacqui will have plenty to ‘talk’ about with The Talk co-hosts: Akbar Gbajabiamila, Amanda Kloots, Natalie Morales, Jerry O’Connell and Sheryl Underwood.

In addition to Wood, The Talk will also welcome actor Scott Caan (son of the late James Caan) who will be on-hand to promote the premiere of his Fox series, Alert: Missing Persons Unit which begins its new season on Tuesday night, March 5th.

The Talk airs on CBS and streams live and on demand on Paramount+ weekdays at 2:00 p.m. ET/1:00 p.m. PT.

So, are you rooting for Steffy in this one? Should she break-up with Finn? Will Sheila be revealed alive in a few months? Comment below.

Steve Burton’s ‘General Hospital’ Return Previews Jason Has Blood on His Hands

Monday, March 4th is the day that Steve Burton returns to General Hospital in the pivotal role of Jason Morgan. The story of Jason’s re-emergence on the canvas has been kept under wraps.

However, PEOPLE has a first-look photo, and in it, Jason has blood on his hand. Not only does he have crimson on him, but he is dressed in black and standing behind a dumpster.

When viewers last saw Jason it was back in November of 2021, when a tunnel collapsed on him as he was attempting to save his brother Drew (Cameron Mathison). For the past two plus years, every one in Port Charles has believed that Jason had died.

Burton’s initial run as Jason was from from 1991 till 2012. After exiting and signing on with Y&R to play Dylan McAcoy, the actor eventually returned to the daytime drama that was his home in 2017. Later, during the Covid-19 pandemic, he was let go from the series by the end of 2021 for not adhering to the Disney/ABC vaccine mandates at that time.

While away from GH, he rejoined the cast of Days of our Lives in 2023, resuming his original soap role of Harris Michaels that he played in 1988 and the year prior on the Peacock limited-series Days of our Lives: Beyond Salem Chapter Two. With the tape schedule well ahead of streaming, Burton will be doing double duty for a short term, where fans can catch him on DAYS, and now on GH.

Previously, Burton said on his upcoming GH storyline, “I got to talk to the head writers. This story is going to be sick. It’s gonna be awesome. So, make sure you keep watching, because the pieces of the puzzle are gonna be fit for when I return.”

Fans should also make sure to catch today’s Friday, March 1st episode of GH as Jason’s return story begins to unfold.

So, what do you think will be how Jason returns to GH starting next week on all-new episodes of GH? Comment below.
