Justin’s portrayal thus far of Adam/Gabriel / I am not impressed.
Michael M will always be Adam.
I always believed and still do that the Adam character should have been left to RIP ..

(and lord knows the Billy character should have been left to RIP.. lol)

but hey- what can do? nothing but FF.. it is sad very sad indeed for Y&R to lose 3 core stars/characters..
and-
now that Pratt will be writing perhaps better writing can save it.. that would be good 🙂

…… long live Y&R!!

Justin Hartley is doing a wonderful job, as the New Adam Newman. su0000 are you watching the wrong soap? lol. Get a reality check su0000, this man can act. I love Justin and the Young and The Restless is luck to have him.

Jennifer

I meant that the Young and The Restless is lucky to have him. But su000 I still love you, thats my opinion. Other people also love Justin. Other wise I love your other comments on this site. You are funny, but sometimes crazy, LOL.

Jennifer , how are you?
I agree; Justin can act and he is handsome,
I would not mind at all if he was under my tree, this christmas..
but-
He is not ‘thee’ Adam, that character has a trademark of MM on it..

Pratt just might give Justin/Adam a great story that will woo me, I would like that, a lot !
the stories now, are not doing anyone much good, so I pass it off to Pratt and see what he can do with the characters.. ..
I’m open to change and even luvin new Adam, but he’s gotta turn me .. 🙂 ..

Sharon and this Adam need to get back together. Chelsea had no chemistry with the character Adam in the past and Sharon belongs with Adam

I agree, either of those characters along with Phyllis should have ever been recasted.

su0000
su0000

yes!
sometimes it is best to let owned characters RIP and move on..
The 3 characters Phyllis, Billy, Adam were very deeply entwined with their actors (Michelle, Billy, Michael) to replace them is not doable..
Now;
there is a Phyllis but absolutely not Phyllis Newman.
There is a Adam, but absolutely not Adam Newman.
There is a Billy, but absolutely not Billy Miller.
I do not know who the new actors are trying to portray. lol
I no longer feel the 3 trademarked characters Phyllis, Billy, Adam.. they are forever gone.

And yes.. all three are gorgeous and are good actors, that is not it, they are simply not good as Phyllis, Billy, Adam.. I doubt any could be therefore they should have been left to RIP..
Hope it gets better.. it needs to get better ..
The only save now will be great stories!!!
GO PRATT !!

and of course 5 five years from now they may blend in LOL
I will be very happy then 🙂

Oh I often disagree with you, suOOOO, but always get a kick outta your posts because you’re so passionate about your soaps! It is all just entertainment after all, so we should all have fun & try to enjoy.

I think J HARTLEY is the BEST recast Y&R has made since JFP turned it into The Titantic. While it’s true some characters need to stay dead, in this case, and especially after the disastrous Billy recasts, I feel they were in desperate need to do something right. Instead of fixing the terrible 2ND recast for Billy, which they seemingly gave absolutely no thought to, they chose to concentrate on Phyllis & Adam. It seems obvious why they waited so long to do it recast Adam.

I think Hartley, whose work I hadn’t seen previously seen, is so charismatic and a charming jack-ass!! What a jerk, just like Adam! Self-centered, but rightfully so in this situation & oblivious to poor Granny Constance. He’s a bit younger, and taller than MM, but this recast is light years ahead of the pitiful Billy recast. IMO, you have a woman in power who hired a friend for a role that fit him in no way, shape or form, except for the fact that BJ is a male. She refuses to admit he has failed as Billy, the character has lost his through line, and he is the 1 that needs to be killed off if CPRATT doesn’t fix it.

I kind of think Y&R is lucky to have Hartley. I wish someone would hire MM!! Days, GH…?

I love this new Adam so much more then MM. I think this Adam and Sharon should have a baby now

I am impressed (and happy) with Justin’s portrayal of Adam.
If we can’t have MM, Justin is the very closest to the real deal,
in my opinion. The similarities are eerily awesome.

“… The similarities are eerily awesome.”

part of me is quite satisfied with this… not quite… but for the betterment of this once #1 serial… I digress

Michael Muhney made Y&R
Billy Miller cemented #1
Michelle Stafford hammered #1

for the character to live on… with the talent… and hottie… Justin Hartley… i’m ok. with that…

perhaps I say this because i’m not an every day part of the audience

it’s just an affirmation that Michael Muhney should never have been let go

I’m more, glad… that his take is working… to allow Kelly Sullivan and Sally Kirkland… an opportunity to shine with

I can’t quit…. DAYS : Sony : NBC hire Michael Muhney

Too soon to tell how JH is going to work out as Adam. Next week in Genoa City when he starts interacting with the cast, not newbies, will tell a lot. I’m reserving judgement for a while!

I agree,, then I will know for sure, but still 🙁
it needs more time ..

JH would have made an awesome Billy he has the young boyish charm look that everybody had grown to love about Billy Miller. I will always miss MM probably because I thought he and Sharon Case were dynamite together. Time will tell if he can bring the edge that MM brought to the role. Hard to believe it has been almost a year since all this went down wish Santa could come back in and change the course.

I think Justin Hartley is doing just as well as he can given the writing and direction he receives. I only hope they do not fail HIM, the actor nor the Adam character.

So many times with the Muhney portrayal they gave a glimmer of his siblings actually liking him. He got awfully close to having a civil relationship with Victoria, but they did the Mexican Hat Dance all over that.

I’m not saying that Adam needs to be buddy-buddy, lovey-dovey with his family, but the character needs to be cut some slack otherwise let’s not have his siblings continue to throw stones from their glass houses.

And one other wish. If Adam is not to be with Chelsea or the chemistry between the two is not there, then please do not put him back with Sharon – give him someone new.

Felicity Huffman Reports To Prison To Serve Sentence For College Admissions Scandal

Former Desperate Housewives star, Felicity Huffman, reported to a federal prison to start to serve her 14-day sentence for her participation in the college admissions scandal that saw affluent parents use illegal means including bribery to get their children into elite educational institutions.

On Tuesday, Huffman surrendered herself to authorities at the low-security Federal Correctional Institution in Dublin, California which is said to be 35 miles east of San Francisco.  Felicity actually entered the prison facility earlier than her court-ordered date of October 25th.

Coincidentally, the prison that Huffman is serving her sentence also housed very well-known inmates including: Patty Hearst, Heidi Fleiss, and Sara Jane Moore, who attempted to assassinate President Gerald Ford in 1975.  Forbes Magazine named the facility one of America’s top 10 “cushiest” prisons back in 2009.

Unlike former Edge of Night actress, Lori Loughlin, who was also caught up in the scandal and has plead not-guilty to charges levied against her and her husband, Huffman did pleaded guilty to paying $15,000 to arrange for her daughter’s SAT score to be falsified.  In addition, Huffman was fined $30,000, and must perform 250 hours of community service and spend a year on probation.

U.S. Attorney Andrew Lelling of the District of Massachusetts, who is the the supervising prosecutor, said Loughlin should expect a tougher sentence than Huffman if she is convicted during an interview on a Boston TV station expressing: “I don’t think I’d be giving away any state secrets by saying we would probably ask for a higher sentence for her than we did for Felicity Huffman.”

In the latest can’t miss ‘Inside Salem: Days of our Lives‘ podcast, two major interviews are the focus of the episode.  First, Camila Banus who had been turning in bravura performances as Gabi, discusses with host. Michael Fairman, her reaction to finding out that Brandon Barash (Stefan) was being killed-off the NBC soap opera, now that Gabi’s love, Stefan is brain-dead.

The duo who became so popular as “Stabi” reveals why Gabi and Stefan’s love/hate relationship worked so well, and those sexed up love scenes.  Later in the interview Camila discusses her recent scenes with Sal Stowers (Lani) where Gabi wants Lani to get down on her knees and beg for forgiveness for Lani shooting Stefan, even though he got in the line of fire to save his mother, Vivian (Robin Strasser).  In addition, Camila talks about working with Susan Seaforth Hayes (Julie) and how Julie hurled some minority slurs at Gabi shortly before her heart-attack.

Then in a very special roundtable chat, Matthew Ashford (Jack) and Melissa Reeves (Jennifer) chat with Fairman about playing those key scenes where Jack rescues Jennifer from Dr. Shah, hits his head, and then finally his memories come flooding back.   The duo known as ‘JnJ” talk about their storied on-screen history, and tease what may happen in the next leg in their storylines.
