Ugh, another new character, why should I get interested. I loved Daniel Goddard as Cane and they just killed him off. Plus, Y&R lost the #1 spot women 18-49 and still won’t give up any info. I am really disappointed in my 28 year soap. Bring back Daniel as Cane Ashby, no twin or ghost will do.

Thank you.

I couldn’t agree more with Christina! Enough is enough! Bring back our beloved character Cane back to his wife and children…. as a living breathing man, no ghost story, the viewers and there are thousands of them want the REAL thing!.

Desperate CBS???? Worried about you fan base jumping ship??? You should be, we feel like you DO NOT care about what we want!!!! You are a fan based success or failure!! Decide which one you want to be, listen to us or watch us go to ABC or NBC. Unlike you we are NOT afraid and we WILL be heard! All it takes is a press release and a date and that half a million viewers most likely will return!!!

I liked the character of Cane, too, but the last few years of his story have sucked. He’s always propping up Lily when she is in one crisis after another, i.e. cancer, having a baby, modeling woes with Jabot. Watching them together would immediately put my DVR into fast forward mode. Total snooz-fest in my opinion. I feel the same about Malcolm and Sofia’s scenes. Utterly boring.

Y&R does not need new characters, they need vision. Daniel Goddard’s portrayal of Cane Ashby was brilliant. The epic “Cane and Lily “love story was and is magical. The decision to kill Cane in the first week of sweeps defies logic. The viewer was led to believe that this was “Cane’s” story not Colin’s. It is not relevant at this time because the story is dead and there is no longer any need for Colin. Y&R is no longer character driven, it jumps from one plot point to the next. The only consistent thing about Y&R is the fact that… Read more »

I agree with everything Mary said! The killing of Cane was a bad decision and that ended his story! There really isn’t any need for Colin now. The writers need to start writing for the characters on canvass and Y&R needs to stop bringing in new characters the viewers are not interested or invested in. Y&R needs to bring Daniel Goddard back as Cane alive!

To all of the people saying get rid of Colin – “there’s no need to have him there” blah blah blah…… be patient. It’s clear that they have more in store for this character otherwise he would have been shot right along with Cane. People have been romanticizing this Cane and Lily thing into unbeliveable proportions. They were not a compelling couple, IMO. The storyline was a complete bore up until the climax. For months, I would forward through Lily’s completely ridiculous oblivion to what was happening with Cane and his “buddy” from Australia. She’s as dumb as a box… Read more »

The more I think of it, I think that Cane and Blake should have hooked up! Now there’s a compelling storyline! Lily would have really had a reason to cry! 🙂

I can’t believe how stupid the show is becoming, you pair stoopid sharon with ugly adam, the man who kidnapped her son, you have nicholas sleeping around with ugly diane, yuck! And victor, forget about it, he’s a loser, this guy is the worst actor on tv. It seems the writers are lost in translation. Neil hooks up with his brother fiance??? She’s not very attractive with that crazy make-up she’s wearing, those colors are not right for her complexion.

Why does this new guy automatically have to mean no Daniel? He can still come back.

Big mistake getting rid of Cane/Daniel good character and popular actor. The powers that be don’t care what the fans want. Y&R is not even close to a must watch anymore.

I am a bit late on the reply but I just found this site………. I think her hair is a statement of her disheveled life with Billy… you will see it come back into neat and tight when she gets back to Newman…. it is part of her wardrobe… it has been getting wilder by the day… I agree with all the posts as well that they have no long term planning plot lines… it jumps day to day from one thing to another. I also notice that the story with Sharon and Sam seems to be completely set aside.… Read more »

After six days of almost unbelievable emotional swings, I am left with a deep, wordless sadness. Hopefully my mom is free from pain and beginning to explore what I like to imagine as her eternal freedom. Over those six days, thousands of friends, family, and fans made their hearts known to me. I am grateful for their love, as I am for the support of my Dad, Coley, and my stepmom Alexi who continue to be my rock during this time. Rest In Peace Mom, I love you.”

The talented actress is best-known to soap opera fans for her Daytime Emmy-winning dual roles as twins, Vicky and Marley Hudson on Another World.  She had two sons, Homer with her ex Coley Laffoon and Atlas, 13, with actor James Tupper.

Anne Heche ‘Not Expected to Survive’; Suffered Severe Brain Injury From Fiery Crash

In just heartbreaking news, Daytime Emmy-winner, Anne Heche (Ex-Vicky/Marley, Another World), is not expected to survive after days in the hospital following being severely burned in a fiery car crash when her vehicle struck a home in Mar Vista, California last Friday.

According to family and friends of the motion picture and television star in a statement, “Unfortunately, due to her accident, Anne Heche suffered a severe anoxic brain injury and remains in a coma, in critical condition. She is not expected to survive. It has long been her choice to donate her organs and she is being kept on life support to determine if any are viable.”  Deadline notes, the actress will be taken off life-support.

The statement went on to say, “We want to thank everyone for their kind wishes and prayers for Anne’s recovery and thank the dedicated staff and wonderful nurses that cared for Anne at the Grossman Burn Center at West Hills hospital.  More than her extraordinary talent, she saw spreading kindness and joy as her life’s work — especially moving the needle for acceptance of who you love. She will be remembered for her courageous honesty and dearly missed for her light.”

There are plans for Heche to get an Honor Walk, which is a hero’s goodbye donor patients receive by hospital staff as they are wheeled into the operating room in their final journey.

Heche will be featured on Lifetime’s Girl in Room 13, set to premiere this fall in September. Lifetime’s Executive VP  and head of programming, Amy Winter, revealed earlier this week at the TCA press tour, “As many of you know, Anne remains in critical condition and all of us here at Lifetime are deeply concerned for her and everyone affected. This project is important to Anne, along with each and every one of us. We all sought to make a film that would bring attention to this appalling issue of human sex trafficking.”

In addition, TMZ had reported that following toxicology reports, Cocaine was found in Heche’s system following the crash. They also found fentanyl. However,  sources say fentanyl can often be used as a pain medication in hospitals, so there is no confirmation that it was in Anne’s system at the time of the crash.

Anne was an amazing actress with such a tortured life.  We send thoughts and prayers to all her loved ones during this difficult time.  Share your thoughts on the latest update on Anne in the comment section below.
