Is Scott on contract or just recurring? I could see the show keeping him around for a while. And I’m thinking Kelly Sullivan’s new character Sage might be Dylan’s adoptive sister or one of his past flings, and will somehow factor into this story too.

Oh God, no, please no relatives for Dullan!


It’s kind of a weak idea. We’ve been made to believe that Avery & Joe just didn’t have it in the romance/love department and that Dylan is her true love. So why should I believe that she’ll fall for Joe? Can we get Danny or Daniel back on canvas? How about Cole (J Eddie Peck), Nina, etc…

I think – I could be mistaken – that in the made up flashback of Davery’s affair or Avery’s recount of it…Joe was a workaholic & ignored her, Dylan did work at her house & they remembered each other from childhood….he gave her attention that Joe wasn’t & BOOM affair.

Oh, boo hoo, right, Ree? I we women craved constant attention from our husbands and did not get as much as we wanted; would we all be having affairs? As I am sure you do, Ree, I find that extremely lame and last resort for TPTB to employ.
From what I understand, hot-shot attorneys have no set schedule and are workaholics themselves. So, there needs to be something more for their marriage to fall apart. I’m sure that story will be told, eventually. She is such a snore that Joe probably got more spice buried in his paper work. Lol


The last sentence in your post had me ROTFL…LOL!!!!! Thanks. Yep…Avery is that D-U-L-L!!!!! Lame.

Take care, CeeCee. XOXOXOXOXO

He really should’ve been Adam…Justin H. shouldv’e been Billy…Burgess shouldve been Joe…and i shouldve hit the Poweball jackpot last Saturday but its obvious my wishes never come true…lol

I am really surprised that he was not Adam they may at the time when he auditioned just not ready to recast Adam or weighing their options with Muhney still. Avery & Dylan seem more like brother & sister just not any chemistry really between the actors. I am really surprised that Burton is content to play a good old boy when before Jason had his accident on Gh he was bored with the good guy bit. Maybe this guy will spice things up!

totally agree…so far the Mariah storyline is the most interesting part of the show…i only watch a few eps a month but with her and BM as Maureen i find the show doing better…SBs Dullian doesnt help…he’s too goody…and this newbie Joe…well, if i had been in casting the actor wouldv’e been Adam…he looks a little like MM and i bet he wouldve been the perfect recast as Adam!!!

Good call Jim…except I should’ve hit the Powerball jackpot! 🙂

ha, agree

Yeah Jim but how depressing is this, even if you would have hit the Powerball, Abby STILL has more money than you!

I wish we could dump Dylan and Avery altogether. They are so boring. Don’t know why Y&R keeps adding characters to the story. It’s okay when Dylan is with Nikki or Paul, but otherwise YAWN.

I like that Avery’s character is sweet and “good” when there are villains on canvas. I liked it when she & Phyllis were trying to figure out their relationship and often bickering. I also like Jessica Collins and think she’s gorgeous— but I can see where others do not like her and Dylan.

As Mo said…apart they interact just fine with their fellow protagonists, together? They s??k.

I liked Avery when she was a friend to Adam. It was the only time I found her remotely interesting and it was good to see Michael being kind to someone not because he was romantically interested or because he hoped to gain something in return, but just because he valued her as a friend.
But I digress–I guess I am missing Michael Muhney as Adam. I think Dylan could have been interesting paired up with Sharon. The airport cafe should name a sandwich after Dylan and Avery. They could call it the plane sandwich.

Yes, I agree, jimh. Although I should not judge by looks alone, Elroy seems to possess that innate ‘swaggah’ and maturity. At the same time, I love Justin H….I really think he’s a phenomenal actor. But, when push comes to shove, he has that boyish look about him, not indicative of a ruthless businessman. IMO, that is exactly how I perceive Adam.

Adding another good looking guy to a show is never a horrible idea– lets just hope old Joe has a story to back up the hype—

Yes, we can hope. I have heard really good things. Maybe he can jazz up that mayo on white bread sandwich called Avery and Dylan.

Hopefully he will be more interesting than Dullen. Probably once the Jack, Kelly, Phyllis dust settles they will pair him with Phyllis just to get Avery’s dander up.

I tuned in briefly to A) see the Katherine Memorial & B) see if there had been any improvement since I watched in December. I was disappointed on both counts. And, am I the only one who finds Kelly/Cady’s hair distracting? Reminds me of when Ginger Rogers wore her hair like that well into her 70’s…ick.

It’s too blonde, Chaz. And that blood-orange lipstick that Cady is wearing is not doing her any favors as it drains the color from her skin.
But Y&R is improving. I like Mariah’s character because she’s interesting and that actress is damned good. She’s conflicted, hurt and acting out because of it. It just occurred to me that she is Adam to Sharon’s Victor.
I also have been catching glimpses of Gina and she has escaped the hospital and is hitchhiking to Genoa City. Although she has not said a word, she says so much with that scary look of grim determination on her face.

I agree , Chaz. Joe and Phyllis should become an item. What sweet irony that would be !!…. Well, you know; what’s good for the goose?…..
However, I don’t necessarily agree with your concept about older women’s hair styles. The color is a bit too bright, but, other than that I find no fault with it. As long as hair is clean and well-kept, age should not matter. My mother is 54 and her beautiful straight blond hair is past her shoulders….you just got her dander up…LOL.

On a different note, I completely love Gina as Phyllis already. I agree with Harry…her eyes speak volumes. She needs not utter a word, the audience can read her mind…she is focused and determined. We see some of the Phyllis temperament surfacing…awesome acting !!!!

I must add…I wonder if Phyllis remembers EVERYTHING? Is she headed to a Genoa City to confront Sharon? Will she bust into Sharon’s and Nick’s wedding ceremony just as they are about to say, “I do”, a’ la Robin Scorpio (GH)?

And with each new addition, the main focus of this show is shifting further and further away from what made it successful for decades —– Jill, the Abbotts, the Newmans, and Paul.

Nothing against this actor but is he really needed? Do we really need to meet Avery’s ex-husband whom she divorced before ever appearing on the show? Why do the writers want to bring her ex-husband to town when they have worked so hard to convince us that Dylan is her true love??

An even more fundamental question —– Do we even need Avery on the show at all???

Why do we need to meet non-crucial Avery’s non-crucial husband??? Why not bring back missing characters who still have a connection to the show —– Daniel Romalotti, Heather Stevens, Kyle Abbott, Fenmore Baldwin, Scotty Grainger —— or beef up the presence of interesting characters who are rarely seen —– Gloria???

I’m not familiar with anything this actor has done so promoting his jointing the cast does little to make me want to watch.

The fact that I am familiar with Blue Steel and Avery Bailey Clark and his appearance will mean more screen time for them also does little to make me want to watch.

I’ll go out on a limb and say that I think that something’s going to happen to Avery. With Joe arriving in Genoa City, there will be at least four characters on the canvas as possible suspects. Phyllis may not be the same as she was before her accident because of the experimental treatment that brought her out of the coma, and it’s already been established that she doesn’t get along with her sister. Austin has harbored a grudge against Avery because of his mother’s death; has he really gotten over his anger? Joe might be a bitter ex-husband bent on exacting revenge against his ex. Dylan has had violent PTSD episodes, and he’s already had blackouts. We could even add little Faith Newman as a fifth suspect since she can’t stand Avery. In any event, I think Dylan will have a blackout and be accused of whatever happens to Avery.

wow, nice promo for a guy whose done movies and tv shows nobodies watch!

Joe or Dylan Joe or Dylan Joe or Dylan Joe or Dylan ..
…….. Joe !!!!

(easily done 🙂

GOOD. Dylan’s character needs shook up a bit. To one dimensional. Steve is a good actor. The juices should start to flow! I hop e Joe is a business man and goes after Newman, as well. Maybe a mobster type. He looks like he could be Maurice Bernard’s brother!

Is there a chance that Austin lied about his past and Avery is his mother and only he and Joe know this?

Oh no! LOL… That means that Austin would be Summer’s first cousin, and she already went down the incest route with Kyle (even though she’s secretly not an Abbott). Summer would lose her mind completely to think she married and has been sleeping with her first cousin.

Awesome! Loved him in MIT. Dylan and Avery need a shake up.

Good point, Timmm. Anything is possible. Who would be the father? Joe? I thought it was Dylan’s baby she lost…unless that baby was taken from her and not miscarried. Isn’t that the usual path these ‘lost’ babies take?

In soaps you are never really dead and your never sure who your daddy is!

Obviously, Dylan is being set up by none other than Ian Ward. The only one for whom I feel badly in all this is Paul.
Off subject but, does anyone else think that Hunter King bears a very strong resemblance to Miranda Lambert?

OMG, where has this guy been all my life’ Joe is just what this show needs. I am so excited.

Johnny Wactor’s Co-Worker, Anita Joy, Speaks Out For First Time Since His Fatal Shooting and Saving Her Life

Those who knew Johnny Wactor (ex-Brando Corbin, GH) were well aware of what an upstanding man he was. As tributes poured in when news that the General Hospital alum was shot and killed by one of three car thieves, they all spoke to his qualities as a human being.

Over the first 24 hours since his passing, the public learned Wactor lost his life putting himself in front of a female co-worker when confronted by his assailants, following their shift at a downtown LA bar. The thieves were attempting to steal his catalytic converter from his vehicle.

Now. Wactor’s former co-work, Anita Joy, has spoken out for the first time via her Instagram account of what happened on that fateful morning and her remembrances accompanied by photos and videos with Johnny.  As many now know, Johnny died a hero.

Anita began, “I’ve needed to take some time to collect myself and my thoughts. I was with Johnny in his last moments and I’m here to be his voice after such unimaginable events. His story is in this post as it happened, please swipe through the top photos and read it. Early Saturday morning (May 25) after our bartending shift Friday night at Level 8 in DTLA.”

“He was killed senselessly by a coward who reacted without care of the gorgeous life he was taking,” Joy shared.  So, I’m angry, I’m sad and I’m all of the feelings and once … but above all, I am here for Johnny’s justice. My friend of 8 years went from laughing together, working side by side, leaving our bartending shift and walking to our cars, to him dying in my arms in the street of DTLA in the dark hours of 3am.”

She went on to say, “Everything happened in an instant. I’ve come to describe it as a glass of water that gets tipped over and you’re scrambling to grab it and save it from spilling out completely but it just runs through your fingertips and is gone.” Joy said that she and Wactor, “cautiously approached the men questioning what they were doing, at first thinking the car was being towed.”

“We were no threat and Johnny kept his cool as he always did, simply stating that it was his car and for them to leave. Hands open to his sides in peace, Joy recounted. “Johnny was between me and the man who shot him – as I heard the shot ring into the night, he forcefully tumbled back into my arms as I grabbed for him I shouted, ‘Hunny, you OK?’ And he only responded, ‘Nope! Shot!’ Joy went on to say that she and Johnny “toppled onto the street” where she was trying to hold his body up as she was screaming for help and screaming at Johnny to “stay with me.”

Next, Joy details that a security guard named Bryan ran into the street and phoned 911. Anita wrote, “I’m so thankful for Bryan showing up, trying with all his might to save Johnny. My only peace is that I was him and this didn’t happen to him alone. My other peace will be seeing these awful men brought to justice.”

Speaking on Wactor’s character, Joy added, “Johnny had this incredible ability that was truly just his genuine nature – to make anyone and everyone feel so special in his eyes. No matter how well you knew him, he treated everyone like he truly cared about you. He lit up any room – you couldn’t not smile around him. His energy was magnetic and pulled you in so effortlessly – you were safe with him. He treated everyone with love, respect, compassion and he really ‘saw’ you.”

“He was beautiful, goofy as hell, full of work ethic and values, he never put people down, even when joking, he never made you feel unsure of yourself – he knew how to be hilarious in such a positive way and it just made him that much more lovable. It just filled your heart to be around him,” she recalled.  Johnny made you love him instantly,” Joy added. “Absolutely one of the best men I’ve ever known. I’m so grateful to have been a part of his world and him, mine. My heart is shattered with his loss but I believe l have gained the best guardian Angel out there.  I love you Johnny Wacky.”

Anita then addressed the crime that took Johnny’s life and how Level 8 did not provide parking for its late night shift workers.  Joy explained, “These criminals need to be caught – Level 8 needs to provide parking for their late hour staff as they originally promised- This cannot be something that isn’t responded to with action, it needs to be addressed in a manner to prevent anything like this ever happening again to the best of their ability – Level 8 needs to contribute to Johnny’s family to honor and respect him for all the hard work and effort he did for them.”

Speaking on GoFundMe page that has been set for Wactor, Anita spoke about Johnny’s family, expressing, “They are on the other side of the country and it’s going to be a lot on them emotionally and financially to get Johnny home to them.”

Tonya Lee Williams Says She Won’t Ever Be Coming Back to The Young and the Restless

It’s a different time in her life and she is in a different place, but Tonya Lee Williams (ex-Olivia Barber) addressed being asked back to reprise her signature soap opera role on CBS’ The Young and the Restless.

Tonya told Soaps In Depth the last time the soap reached out to her to reprise Olivia was for its 50th anniversary, “It it would have been lovely to do but I could not imagine doing the role. It takes a lot for me as an actor. You don’t just turn up and start reading a script. I don’t know how to explain it … I trained as an actor. I go through a lot of process into who that character is. And that character was someone from 20 years ago.”

Williams’ Y&R run Williams began back in 1990 and went through 2005. She later returned in 2007 making some appearances in the several years that followed. However, the last time anyone had an Olivia sighting was back in February of 2012 for Cane and Lily’s wedding.

She qualified that she left the show on “great terms,” adding, “I absolutely love the show. It has nothing to do with the show. But I try to explain it like this: Have you ever dated someone for a long time and you don’t want to date them anymore? And you have broken up with them and like, 10, 15 years have passed and people are saying, ‘Would you go back with that guy?’ I’m like, ‘No.’ Because you’re a different person now.”

Currently, Williams is the executive and artistic director for the Reelworld Film Festival. An organization she founded in 2001. Held in Toronto, the film festival features talent from ethnically diverse communities.

So, would you have liked to have seen the character of Olivia show back on Y&R? Perhaps, helping a patient in need since she is a doctor or speaking with/being involved with the Winters family in some capacity? Comment below.
