TODAY: The Final Y&R Episode of Billy Miller and Michael Muhney!

Courtesy/MuhneyTwitterFanPop

Courtesy/MuhneyTwitterFanPop

As previously announced, today January 30th, 2014 is the final airdate of two of the most popular actors ever to appear on the number one soap opera, The Young and the Restless.  Of course, we are talking about Billy Miller (Billy) and Michael Muhney (Adam).

Viewers have witnessed over this week a burgeoning showdown between Billy Abbott and Adam Newman over Billy’s discovery that Adam was the hit and run driver who killed his little girl, Delia months ago.  Billy has confronted Adam with a gun at the site where Delia was killed, and as we head into Thursday’s episode, Billy reveals he has plans for Adam that don’t include taking him to the police station!

In a preview clip from CBS.com on today’s episode, looks like Adam is driving somewhere and Billy is holding a gun on him!   This won’t end well probably for either character!

What we do know is that its’ time for fans of Y&R to say their farewells to both Miller and Muhney who left the show late last year under different circumstances.  Miller chose not to renew his contract and Muhney was fired.

Watch a preview for today’s episode after the jump! Then let us know what you think will happen?  And, if you watched the episode, let us know what you thought of where it left the characters of Billy and Adam! Remember, next week David Tom returns to the role of Billy Abbott on February 3rd.   Will you miss Mr. Miller and Mr. Muhney?  Let us  know!

The character of Billy will not be the same. I didn’t like Tom before and I doubt that it will be any different this time. Sorry to see Billy go, wish him luck in his endavors.

I agree, Tom never fulfilled the role for me I’m nervous as to how this will fit in the weeks to come. I never had a care for Muhney since the day he picked up the role. I think past “Adams” suited the role better. Should be interesting.

… Tom deserves a chance I suppose. But he never seemed right in the role to me either M. I hope he’s grown as a performer or he’s really going to be out of his depth with this role.

He will look like Victoria’s little brother. I don’t see them in romantic scenes the Billy Miller was with the character Victoria. Maybe they are going to replace Victoria with more immature looking actress?

Tom is definitely too young and looks young. I don’t think this is a good move for the show. Victoria needs someone strong.

I’ve been watching for 35 years. I named my daughter “Ashley” of course after Ashley Abbott. I am very disappointed that Billy and Michael left. I don’t think that the new actor for Billy fits well with Victoria. I didn’t know that Adam’s character wouldn’t be back. Or if he does come back, I wasn’t aware that another actor would be playing his part. They’re both great actors. I defiantly watch the show for the actor’s, because everyone knows that the writers need to be replaced. I will still watch, and hope that the story lines improve.

I’ve been watching Y & R for years. Billy and Adam were great actors on this show. I can’t believe that a contract could not be reached on Billy and Adam was fired. Of course, we are out here in the public and we do not know what goes on behind closed doors, but those 2 actors were great on this show. The new Billy can’t even compare to the old Billy. I hope Y & R wakes up and brings both of these actors back. If you don’t, I believe in the long run it may not be good… Read more »

The truth of the matter is, Tom does not fit the role of Billy. They need to immediately get rid of him and replace him with the real Billy, that played an excellent role. Tom looks and act like a little boy or some cartoon character. He can’t act. If they want to keep their fans and ratings up, listen to us and get the real Billy back. Send Stitch to his secret life too. He’s a nerd.

I am sorry, but you are so wrong.. I will not watch the Y&R again.. The only part of the story line was Adam & Chelsea. And w/o Michael Muhney the show is not worth watching. There are other shows on TV!! Whenever a main actor is replaced by another actor.. It is never the same. Should have worked it out with Michael Muhney.. I wish Michael and Billy the very best. And hope to see them on TV soon!!!

You are wrong. Somebody will stop watching- that somebody being me. If anyone needs to be fired from the Y+R- its the writers and those that sit in the executive chairs. Without Adam and Billy- both whom were in scenes with Jack…the story line is BORING.
I’m recording Ellen now on NBC.

…. I know you’d like to – but you can’t and don’t dicate the viewing habits of others. I suspect there will be some loss of viewers as has been the case in the past when other popular characters have left any daytime soap or primetime offering. Will it end the show – most likely not. But it is the only option viewers have when not happy with the direction of a daytime or primetime series.

But they made it very interesting, and I will miss the Billy Abbott, no one can replace him, and Adam needs a happier ending, I just don’t think he was treated right just when he was trying to turn his life around, I hate it when they keep replacing the Character, except The picked a good one when the picked Victoria that was a good choice and blended with the family better.

I’ve been watching on and off for 20 years, more on now that there is DVR. I loved Adams character for the flawed human being that he was and for the way he wanted to change for his son. The whole story line was sad. I think the show is really boring without those story lines and really boring for losing such great characters. I’ll be watching where they go and I’m looking forward to watching a new show.

Some people will definitely stop watching the show. I will be one of them! A few weeks back my husband shook his head at me like he couldn’t believe I was watching such drivel. I told him, ” I know the writing is just awful on this show, but they have a few good actors, I really enjoy. Watch this guy. He is so good. He is the main reason I watch.” He watched Micheal’s character with me for a minute and agreed that he was really good. When his character was killed off, they killed off my reason for… Read more »

OMG! No. The Sharon Newman character needs to go. I am so tired of “Sharon” and if by some chance MM returns, the two storylines should never intersect again. And, the day that “Dru” re-enters the show is the day I turn off Y&R forever! I think it’s highly ironic that Billy goes out of his mind with rage at Adam who accidentally killed Delia and “left her there to die on the side of the road” and then he purposely walks away from Adam trapped in the car that then blows up, leaving him to die on the side… Read more »

I guess I am way too slow. I knew the voice of Billy off and all that blood masked things, BUT this Billy needs to GO. It is a sacrifise for such good Actors to stay and play our Favorite Actors. Job offers must be plentiful. Who can blame them? So I will Turn ff and Do Netflix in that time slot. Adam was unique and under rated. Good luck you guys. THE new direction of a show I have watche from month one is over.

Billy is such a super actor honeslty. This new guy cannot reach even hight of real Billy Miller ankle Happy that Victoria is getting divorce from this “tom whoever’ no chemistry between them whatsoever. Also too bad…because Adam & Billy held the show in high standart. I loved Adam’s acting – same as Billy’s acting performance…..they were so natural and kept us wanting more from them. Oh Billy why did you NOT sign the new contract? Y/R are sinking as fast as Titanic without you two. And that bloody Sharon ?????….OMG what is that imbecile still doing there & how… Read more »

I really enjoyed them both. I’m just upset that Adam got blamed for everything & really never had a chance. Doesn’t sound like he got a chance for real either. As for Billy I really liked him too. They just always made him to be such a lousy husband. Not cool all the time. The last thing for me was when you made Adam hit Delia, not cool either. He got the bad part always. I quit taping Y&R after that. He needed to have a chance. Just like he did now. I love them both & I hated to… Read more »

Loved Billy who’s the character now, don’t love billy who’s coming in brand new to take his role. He sucks!!! he looks and he is a terrible actor. He’s no Billy Miller. Michael Muhney and Billy Miller should get Emmy’s for their role. I have been watching the show since I was 8 years old and now I am 43 eeks. I loved these two characters. They were exciting to watch. Two best actors. Now I am disappointed. Very…. They should at least bring michael muhney back somehow, I don’t think they should have fired a very good actor.

I am really irritated about this and at this point don’t care to even watch Y&R again. That is sad because I have watched for 30 something years. Bring Michael Muhney back!!! The show should have room for both him and Eric Braeden. I have doubts as to whether he did what he is accused of!?

I have been watching Y&R since 1987, and with all of my life responsibilities, I have only watched the show sporadically because I just didn’t have time and wouldn’t bother staying up late to watch the DVR show. This past week, however, I made it a point to watch each and every show. I fast forwarded to the parts with Billy and Adam because the acting was phenomenal and these two characters are my favorites. I have not researched the details of why they are leaving the show but am disappointed the the powers to be could not find a… Read more »

I am very upset that Michael Muhney was fired and forced to leave the show. He embodied that character completely and even if Adam miraculously survived that crash and fire and they bring on a “new” Adam, it will never be the same. No one but Michael Muhney can do that role. I just wish they could have worked something out to keep him on the show. I know what he “alledgedly” did ,and frankly there’s two sides to every story. I would much rather see the actress who plays Summer go. She brings very little to the character and… Read more »

Shari
Guest

I wholeheartedly agree! I, too have watched for more than 30 years. Michael played the incredibly complcated and troubled Adam with depth not found in most soap actors. As much as you want to hate Adam, you find yourself pulling for him. The “new” Billy is dreadful and not believable in the role. Billy Miller is the ONLY Billy Abbott in my opinion! These two were the only story lines I watched-the rest-fast forward. While I wish them both much success, my selfish side wishes they would RETURN!

No one else can play the character of Billy Abbott as well as Billy Miller. Again, Y&R has let a great actor go because of money. Michael Muhney,also will be missed. Y&R is being ruined and turning off decades long loyal viewers and then when it is cancelled, Y&R big shots will blame the FANS!!

No way Billy Miller is the only Billy. I am not happy and I will stop watching the show now. I have been watching it for over 30 years. Also, I like the other Adam better too.

I am 42 years old. I have watched Y&R since I was 8. I have seen characters come and go or be replaced. The current changes will bring about a change Y&R is not looking for. Viewers will change their mind about Y&R and you will see numbers drop. I doubt if they receive an daytime Emmy this year. I will miss both characters. I do not wish to see the old Billy return. He was sickening. No one will measure up to Billy and Michael, the current Adam.

I have been watching off and on for almost 20 years. If they had this old-new Billy back then, the story line wouldn’t have happened with the old Victoria. As I believe they are real life brother and sister (the previous Victoria).
Either way, he looks too young compared to the Victoria they have now. She wasn’t my favorite at first, but she grew on me next to Billy Miller. For the first time in regards to a soap opera, I am truly upset about this change. I hope Miller reconsiders.

This is an outrage! Billy Miller is the only one that can play his role! No one can ever take his place! Michael was a very good actor and will be missed. Maybe you can bring back a familier face for Adam. The last character that played Adam was a good one.

I knew Adam was getting fired due to being accused of “getting fresh” with Summer and some of the other ladies when it was not wanted. I had no idea about Billy Miller leaving. The new Billy is the old Victoria’s brother in real life and how could you bring someone back to play the role of Billy when he was Noah (Victoria’s nephew) many years ago. Y&R fans… Read more »

I agree so whole-heartedly! I hate that they are bringing this character out of the dustpan and throw him up at the audience as entertainment. Then on top of that we have to watch him simpering around “Summer” the one who allegedly got “Adam” a great actor fired. Too much, just too much.

David Tom does look immature in stature as compared to Billy Miller and Amelia but if you really look closely at his facial features, his features appear a little more worn and older than both Billy Miller and Amelia. David’s stature makes him appear younger to some.

I want Michael Muhney as Adam, and I hate the new Billy. I agree with others here, he is too young and too doe-eyed to be Billy and his acting sucks! Billy Miller was cocky and confident and had a spark that was electric with Victoria. Why is Y & R firing some of their best? Hate this new Billy, and want Adam/Michael back… oh, yeah… already said that!, can’t say it enough! And, yes, I will stop watching!

I agree. Couldn’t believe it when Billy got out of the burning car! Really thought Adam would survive! The new/old Billy is awful and looks like a teenager. Billy Miller was so good looking and played the part of Victoria’s tormented husband so well. Would even miss Adam if I was going to continue watching but guess I will no longer plan to be home no matter what at 12:30!

I totally agree. It hurts to look at the new Billy. he is not attractive, looks like a kid. Need to shut his mouth and breath through his nose. He is not a fix at all.

I’m 47 years of age and I can remember watching y&r since the age of ten with my mom . I am so disappointed in the choice that the writers made concerning Adams character. He fit the role perfectly and I hope they do better with Adams replacement. This Tom character has some big shoes to fill which he is doing a terrible job. He has no sex appeal, he is over acting his role to the point that I just want to skip him and get to the next scene please. He acting is awful!!!!

Tom just doesn’t suit the role of Billy. We’re going to miss both of the actors fired and my interest in the show isn’t what it was before. I’ll never figure out why two of the best actors are being replaced and no one will do the work justice. What a shame to abuse the reign of control this much.

I think it was a HORRIBLE decision to fire Adam. There had to be a way to make things work and keep him. To let Summer go would have resulted in better rating for Y&R. Billy can not be replaced by this very DULL new Billy. Can’t stand him! I have watched Y&R since the very first airing and have always loved it (even through character changes) but this is to much. These two young men were the heart of Y&R. Please find some way to bring back Adam and Billy.

I really liked Billy Miller in the role of Billy Abbot, and Michael in the role of Adam. Business is business, but viewership is also business. I’m not sure I’ll continue viewing Y&R. I’ve tried since the two characters have been replaced (Adam — TBD date of return). I have made the decision to focus my attention elsewhere. When Billy and Michael return to the show and there’s a shakeup in the executive office, I’ll consider viewing the show again. Many of my fellow viewers share my sentiment. I wonder where Y&R’s ratings are since the departure of those two… Read more »

I have been watching the Y& R since its 1st day. Some characters should not be replaced, they are the show. They could have never replaced Ms Chancellor, John Abbott, Victor Newman, Nikki Newman, Paul and on and on….Their business depends on viewer faithfulness to the shows…I liked the old Billy and Victoria’s fire and desire. Victoria can’t even act as well looking in the face of this little boy that took Billys place.

I must say that I cannot get into the story-line of Billy & Victoria now that Miller has left the show…It was hard enough adapting to a new Victoria but at least she has some spark in her attitude and brought a new aspect to the character…The “new” Billy seems bland and blase and rather immature in his portrayal…Also, I really want Phyllis to come back and SOON…She belongs with Jack, not that weird woman played by Cynthia Watros…Also, it is high time that it all came out about Summer being a Newman, not an Abbott, so she can resume… Read more »

I also read that Eric (Victor Newman) had something to do with getting him off the show. We all know any gossip sites aren’t always true. I want them to bring Muhney back. I don’t know if they can find a character that will show all his evil mean sides that he showed. it’s like them replacing Victor impossible to replace.

I was so sad to see the characters of Billy & Adam leaving the show. The two actors were my favorite on Y&R. They are two of the finest actors that Y&R had on their show. The new Billy looks so much younger then the Billy who left the show. David Tom is a fine actor but just not in the role of Billy Abbot. He acts like a little kid. As for the story line of Jack Abbot and his new love interest it’s boring. Phyllis has been gone long enough and the show has had plenty of time… Read more »

I totally agree with the above posts. I never liked David Tom the first time around and there is absolutely NO chemistry with Amelia aka Vickie. Billy Miller and Michelle Stafford were my absolute favorites on the show. So far as Adam? I was adjusting, but I still believe that the first actor to play him was better. I’m just SO disappointed with Y&R nowadays. I still watch it, but I have to change the channel frequently ie: Cane and Lily, Devon (the most boring character on the show!) Abby & Tyler…NO chemistry….The only new (or fairly new) characters I… Read more »

I find the show really boring and bad now. Losing Billy Miller and Michael Muhney was a big mistake. The show has no good story line now. Even victor is getting boring and he was the main stay for the show for a long time. Too bad but have no interest in the show anymore. Also losing the Phyllis character was bad too although I think that Michelle wanted to go but they should have paid her more and given her some incentives. Phyllis, Billy, and Adam that is what people tuned in for. Too bad, so sad. There is… Read more »

Im so disappointed with the “new” Billy…his personality isnt strong enough and he has no chemistry with Victoria. And losing Michael Muhney is a huge mistake. I have to admit I didnt care for him when he first started in that role, but he grew into exactly who it seemed Adam should be. And his story line was finally going someplace positive with his new baby. What is going on over there? Phyllis, Chloe, and all — and if I have to see Sharon and Nic together one more sickening time.

I have loved Billy Miller as Billy. He even made the impossible happen…he made Victoria watchable!

Michael Muhney took his shit scripts and turned in golden performances. I can’t imagine anyone else being able to turn one of the most deplorable characters into one you want to root for. Adam did horrible things, but he always showed his vulnerable side and everyone wanted him to succeed…especially in bringing his father down!

I would agree with both of you and add Melissa Claire Egan to the list. The most painful part of all of this, is that when it is finally resolved (I still believe that someone else actually hit and killed Delia) it won’t be the same two actors playing the parts. So, it won’t have nearly the same effect. I wish them both the best. They will be missed!

I’ve thought all along that another driver was responsible. Anyone would feel the impact of something striking their vehicle. The scarf could have already been lying on the pavement and attached to Adam’s vehicle. And there could be any number of explanations for the broken tail light. AND….isn’t it curious that the name above Adam’s on the list of matching plate number is “Kelly”? OK, so the last name is different, but who’s to say she doesn’t have a married or maiden name she goes by?

I too believe someone else hit and killed Delia. Remember they also show Nikki driving home that night too. I am so over, Victor, Sharon and Nick.

David Tom Tom is not a negative factor for me.

Adam and Billy were the magnets drawing viewers like me in. And I love Peter Bergman as Jack, but the writers aren’t giving him anything but chopped liver.

I would give David Tom a chance (mostly b/c Heather Tom is so awesome and I want to support), but I can’t bring myself to do it. I need to stand in solidarity with all the other Michael Muhney fans.

Harry
Guest

Donna, first, Adam and Summer are soap characters and therefore, Michael Muhney can not be fired for anything his character does within the parameters of fiction. Second, let’s focus on the drama we see on the television set, not the alleged drama behind the drama. There’s been far too much speculation and rumor mongering already. That said, Billy and Michael hit it out of the ball park today–brilliant actors, both of them.

Thank you Mr. Fairman for writing about the storyline , the characters and the 2 very talented actors who play them.

Both are so good that they transcend the not very good writing they have been afforded. The pacing is sluggish and going on too long–not the actors’ fault. Moreover, it has been made clear to viewers time and time again that Adam could not have been the… Read more »

This is a dark day for Y&R. Billy Miller should have been resigned, but now he’s leaving. Sorry, but David Tom is weak. What a mistake.

He was thrown horrible storylines, yet he overcame them and connected with the viewers. What else explains the outcry over his firing? He could have stayed if the situation had been handled properly, but that’s a reflection on the producer and Sony. What a mistake. Muhney was the show’s future. I’m so disgusted that… Read more »

I won’t be watching Y&R after today. Too many great actors have come and gone this year. The stories have diminished to awful and the dismissal of Michael Muhney and the disregard to Billy Miller have been the final straw for me. I’m watching General Hospital, which is terrific.

I love Y&R..I have been watching this show faithfully since it’s debut in 1973..The writing has been superb, the story lines riveting, but I have to say the Dehlia story line was most disturbing. Not since Cassie’s death has a story bothered me so much. And I have to say that Dehlia’s death tore me to shreds. No parent should ever have to face such a tragedy. With that being said, the two characters of Billy & Adam were each tormented by her death. I absolutely hate to see it all end this way. Two fine actors leaving at the… Read more »

I will miss these two actors so much. I hated Adam until Michael took the role. His acting so well that I knew right from wrong yet he found a way to endear him. Now I will miss both these amazing actors!! Good luck guys! Bad move Y&R!!!

I am very disappointed at Y & R letting Michael Muhney and Billy Miller leave ….two of the best actors which they proved in their performances this week! I don’t understand why Y &R has done this….I know Billy left of his own choice but believe if Y & R had offered him a good deal, he would have stayed. I’m thinking about saying “farewell” to Y & R and will wait to see where these fine actors re-appear and will watch those shows!!!! I don’t believe Tom can replace Billy Miller ….and have no idea who will return as… Read more »

I didn’t care for the way they demonized Adam for what was an accident, they kept saying he killed her, like he had done it on purpose, and some of the lines were a bid over the top and unnecessary, as if the writers were getting their digs in on MM through his character Adam. But aside from that I found the scenes today, with both Billy and Adam among the best in the show’s recent history. Unfortunately because of all the behind scene drama and rumors I doubt MM will ever win an Emmy for those performances. Yet in… Read more »

Of course they were just as soap columnists are attacking him he is guilty as far as they are concerned. just remember this B/S started in June of 2013. Just a bunch of vultures picking the bones! He was such a threat we waited 6 months before he was shown the door.

We get it as Billy says thru grinding teeth tell me how she died and clueless Adam well Geeze Wally all I saw was a dog. This really is what we pass off as the #1 soap right? Personally I wanted to jump thru the TV and shoot both of them. Gosh love all of you guys that are sticking with this because I for one have had enough and Harry… Read more »

I cannot believe both of the best actors are no longer on the show. I am so sorry, but I do not feel anyone could replace either character. I won’t be watching Y&R after today. The story lines have become boring in the last year. And the turn over of characters has been truly awful. I feel you should have worked something out with Michael (if it is true what is was accused of). I do not feel Michael/Adam can be replaced.I wish Billy and Michael the very best and hope to see them again soon! Also the ending today… Read more »

I wont be around when nu-Adam turns up to find out he didnt really kill Delia.

With the passing of Jeane Cooper and losing Michelle Stafford, Muhney and Miller one after the other is something this show will take years to recover from. If it recovers at all.

When I get home I will be removing Y&R from my DVR and adding Days of Our Lives. With Eileen Davidson set to return and Kassie DePaiva joining the cast im looking forward to getting to know the show better.

Criminal that these two are gone and the show is stuck with the likes of Steve Farren Burton, Eric Braeden, and Daniel Goddard. Y&R is beyond dumb.

I just removed Y&R from my DVR after many years. Sad day! Good Luck BM and MM. The show can now be cancelled to ensure JFP is in an unemployment line where she deserves to be. I refuse to tune in due to habit. DOOL here I come and look forward to the many new cast additions joining your show. Will not be long until GH becomes the #1 watched soap on network television. SAD! GOODBYE Y&R!

I just started watching this about a month ago, and now I will be way confused. The characters are all new to me, and hopefully the new Billy Abbot will be someone that I can remember. HAHA, after Soapnet went off the air and the re runs of AMC and OLTL can’t be seen anymore, I had to pick some new Soap to watch. I knew that Steve Burton had gone to another soap, and once I found him in Y&R decided to watch. I sure wish there were some synopsis to know some of the story line, it is… Read more »

Joan– this website has a section off on the side of any page call Michael’s Links– click on Soap Central. Soap Central has an excellent history section for each soap. When you get there click on the Y&R tab, and then once in the Y&R page, go to the ABOUT Y&R section— there you can find recaps, history, character history, etc. It is good resource for those just beginning to watch a new soap. I used it to catch up on GH when I started watching last year.

The acting of these two men – Billy M. & Michael M. – has been nothing less than incredible — over the years — and especially since the Delia thing – which should have never happened. Both men deserve an Emmy for their recent work – even though if nominated, they would be competing against each other for Best Actor. Such nuance, such heart, such power! Unfortunately, so many of the other Y&R story lines just don’t come close to the magic and complexity of Billy and Adam’s “dance of death.” It is hard to imagine continuing to watch Y&R,… Read more »

Not happy at all with the replacement and I am glad I wasn’t a fan for more than a year or else I wouldn’t be able to quit so easily. Ever since I heard about the departure I just watched Millers scenes and skipped the rest. I thought miller was the best in the whole show and he was the reason I stayed to watch the show. Now I find every other story line predictable and I only have watched one year. I will stop watching today as it won’t be the same and will watch wherever Miller goes. He… Read more »

I have watched faithfully since 1973. Michael Muhney truly made Adam come to life for us all.
MM is irreplaceable. When he left the show, he took Adam Newman with him.

I feel the same way! I have been watching Y & R for 30 years and after Feb 1, 2014 I will NO longer watch. David Thom Poor choice to replace Billy Miller. Michale Muhney will be sadly missed. The character who played Delia wanted to leave so why didn’t they just cast the little girl instead of killing her off- another bad choice. In closing, my opinion- LOVED LOVED Adam *& Chelsea together. Victoria and Billy well I can get used to them not being together- will miss BIlly Miller though.

The storyline of a child dying is always heartbreaking but this one has left me COLD! How in the world is it even remotely conceivable for this lame excuse storyline to too have been written just to blame Adam Newman. this was a tragic accident at worst Adam panicked after hearing almost everyone in town from the local police to the local hometown media demanding a lynching for the person who unfortunately ran into a small child at NIGHT on a deserted stretch of a hillside road in a SUV a vehicle that if anyone were driving this vehicle under… Read more »

Now the show is going to be all about Victor and Nikki, like really how much more of her crying and his bullding can we watch. I think they should have gotten ride of them, not those two great actors.

I absolutely love Billy Miller. I am going to miss him so much. I am thrilled to see him in prime time shows. It doesn’t matter the show, if he’s on, I watch. I am a Young and Restless fan, so I probably will not watch him on another soap, but if he’s on prime-time, I will watch. Although, Tom has played Billy before, it will not be the same. I can’t imagine anyone else paying Adam, other than Michael. I’m hoping whomever replaces him can do as a great job as Michael. I am so hoping the writers of… Read more »

OLTL Alum Arlene Dahl Dead At 96, Son Lorenzo Lamas Shares: “She Was The Most Positive Influence In My Life”

Another loss for the soap world and its extended family.  Arlene Dahl, who had a notable career in film and television, and who appeared on both One Life to Live and All My Children, has passed away at the age of 96.

Her son, former Falcon Crest and The Bold and the Beautiful star, Lorenzo Lamas (Ex-Lance and Ex-Hector, respectively), shared the news via his Facebook page: “Mom passed away this morning in New York. She was the most positive influence on my life. I will remember her laughter, her joy, her dignity as she navigated the challenges that she faced. Never an ill word about anyone crossed her lips. Her ability to forgive left me speechless at times. She truly was a force of nature and as we got closer in my adult life, I leaned on her more and more as my life counselor and the person I knew that lived and loved to the fullest. My sympathies go to her loving husband @marcrosennyc who, for the last 37 years, made her life so wonderful and joyous. Love you mom forever ♥️ #ArleneDahl #Moviestar #legend #mom #RIP”

Dahl came on to One life to Live as Lucinda Schenk Wilson, the selfish and manipulative mother of Mimi King played by Kristin Meadows.  Arlene made appearances on the ABC soap starting in 1981 and eventually was offered a one-year contract that took her through till 1984. A decade later, Dahl came on to play Lady Lucille on All My Children for a short time.

While still working in TV and films, Arlene branched out into beauty and cosmetics, eventually becoming an executive and beauty columnist.

Throughout her life, Arlene was married six times.  She had been married to Marc Rosen since 1984 and they remained together till her death.  She is survived by her son Lorenzo, two other children, grandchildren, and great-grandchildren.

Guiding Light’s Robert Newman Pays Tribute to the Brilliance of Lisa Brown

On Sunday, longtime Guiding Light mainstay, Robert Newman (Ex-Josh Lewis), shared a heartfelt message on his Facebook page on the death of his former co-star, Lisa Brown (Ex-Nola Reardon).

As previously reported, Brown passed away earlier this week at the age of 67 from cancer. She portrayed the beloved role of Nola on the CBS soap opera from 1980-1985 and was front and center in many stories which featured Nola’s antics, fantasies, and of course, her love affair with Quint, the late Michael Tylo.

In his message on Brown’s death, Robert Newman expressed: “I was greatly saddened to hear of the sudden death of the great Lisa Brown. When I first joined the show in 1981, Lisa was pretty much the center of everything. A real whirlwind. Her work with the late Michael Tylo was fantastic. I particularly have fond memories of Nola’s fantasies …Wizard of Oz, Casablanca, etc. I don’t think I was ever a part of those fantasies, but I remember watching them being taped in the studio and she was just amazing.”

Newman goes on to say: “One of my fondest Lisa memories, however, was sitting in the audience at the Winter Garden Theater in NYC watching Lisa head up the cast of 42nd Street with Lee Roy Reams in 1981 or so. It was one of those times when you see a colleague that you know from one genre, Daytime Drama, in an entirely different genre, Musical Comedy, and you are completely surprised and blown away. Again, she was just fantastic in the role and I as a fellow musical comedy performer, I had great, great respect for her. Below is a clip from a television performance of her as Peggy in 42nd Street. Her death at such a young age is a great loss to the daytime community. Love and prayers to her family and friends.”

Michael Fairman TV also shares below the video posted by Robert below, which reminds us of just how multi-talented Lisa was for her fans, the audience, and to all that knew her. On a personal note: “Lisa always performed at the ‘Night of the Daytime Stars’ benefit for AMFAR in New York City during the AIDS pandemic that I created and produced.  It was the annual event held the night before the Daytime Emmys, and she was always willing to lend her support and talents to help others in need.”
