Soap fans who were thinking The Young and the Restless Nick’s (Joshua Morrow) ex-flame Grace Turner could be the key to just who Mariah (Camryn Grimes) is …  looks like they were right on the money!

At the end of today’s episode of the CBS sudser, Nick went to meet someone, and in the preview for tomorrow’s episode it was revealed to be Grace, and looking just how you remembered her …  in seductive lingerie!

That means than none other than The Bold and the Beautiful’s Jennifer Gareis (Donna) is back in Genoa City in a role she was last seen in back in 2004.

In story:  Nick is on a mission putting two and two together to find out just who this Cassie lookalike truly is, especially after listening back to Helen (Mariah’s supposed mother) conversation with Ian Ward (Ray Wise)!

Soap Opera Digest exclusively spoke to Gareis on her Grace Turner reprisal, and how she kept it a secret even from her good friend and longtime Y&R co-star Sharon Case (Sharon): “I didn’t say anything to anyone because they asked me not to.  I felt like, ‘Here I am keeping this secret and I can’t even tell my best friend!’  Then I thought, ‘She’ll know when she sees the script!’  When I have to keep a promise, whether it be work, my friends or family, I take it to the grave.”

So, what do you think happened?  Could it be that Grace knew that Sharon gave birth to twins and gave one of the babies away to get back at her for getting to be with Nick?  What secret does Grace hold?  Comment below!

This story would have worked for me if they had not aged Summer it would make Cassie/Mariah in her thirties. Oh well! I wish they would use JG over at Bold she is great and I for one could stand a little of her & Eric it would be a nice change of pace.

This is one of the few storylines I’m currently interested in on Y&R.

@MBmomof3 unfortunately me too so I DVR the show every now and then and get caught up in the nielsen count as if i’m watching on a daily basis. Those DARNED ratings tickers..JFP would be gone about now but the lady is savvy and she knows how to boost a rating every now and then while putting viewers to sleep or just off the show altogether.

Yes me too, I love Jennifer Gareis so much, She is a terrific actress and very pretty as well. I missed Grace so much, Too bad its only short term. I love her as Donna on the bold and The Beautiful. Maybe in the future, Jennifer can do both shows. This storyline looks very good, I am very interested.

I don’t know if there is any mystery here– it seems obvious that Mariah will turn out to be Sharon’s daughter– Cassie’s twin. Nurse Helen was most likely a member of Ian’s cult, who took one of the babies Sharon gave birth for some reason that won’t make any real sense, but will serve the purpose of making Mariah Sharon’s daughter.

I hope she is Cassie..
we have had to celebrate her death every year with a week or longer sob story of reliving her death, and then the same for every holiday and birthday, we had to relive Cassie’s death..
For years, every time Nick and Sharon were in 10 feet of each other they talked about Cassie..
So, hope its her so the decade/whatever amount of time )100yrs) of mourning her stops!!
And Sharon;s 15 minutes of sob time blubbering on at Cassie gave got old 9 years ago ..LOL
I hope they just get over with it/done … 🙂 ..

I think she is Cassie for some reason; when there was the daydream sequence about Nick the other day they didn’t kiss the camera cut away. I don’t know it’s just what I thought. It is the only good story right now although I am worried about my baby Neil Winters.

Now THAT was a spoiler I wasn’t expecting! Never leaked, and completely out of the blue!

WTG, casting people at Y&R … you kept THIS one under a rock long enough to pull off!

If you have not seen the episode today you need to watch JG hit it out of the ballpark.

BTW, my personal take? Yes, Mariah is Cassie’s twin, but Helen was a nurse at the hospital where Sharon gave birth, then stole her away, probably saying or doing something that let others believe the baby died and no one bothered to tell Sharon she had a second child.

Then again, Alice had Cassie for years, remember? So there’s a probability for a second story, that Helen is her sister (another alcoholic, which Alice was, running around the bars and such for years) and knew that Sharon had given up her kids at birth, so she decided to take one for herself and the other went to Alice, her sister. Only Helen went the way of the cult, and Alice ended up giving Cassie back to Sharon by way of Grace and Tony, who went to Milwaukee to find out about Cassie.

Either way, bet Helen is related to Alice, and yes of course Mariah is Cassie’s twin sister…

Neil is soooo boring! They need to bring Drew back into his life. I think Mariah is Cassie too. Hey on B&B they brought Taylor back from the dead, it turned out that Prince Omar slipped into her room and took her body back to his palace and what-do-you-know…Taylor is alive! So why not Cassie. But I also agree that they would need to make Cassie character at least 28 – 30 due to Summer’s age. Also they are dragging the Phyliss thing out way to long. SMH

Yes I have been saying for years they need to bring back Drew. She is the only fit for Neil.

Hope JFP doesn’t ruin this story, like she did with Emily’s long lost twin on GH.

Impeachment Hearings On Broadcast Networks Show Ratings Much Lower Than The Daytime Soap Operas They Are Preempting

In an infuriating article written by FOX news, off of a study from NewsBusters, the news outlet and others have come to the realization that all of us who want our soaps back on the air already know.  That is … that the network daytime dramas ratings are far better on a day-to-day basis than people tuning into network TV during the day to watch the impeachment hearings of Donald Trump.

Soap fans have been furious that in the afternoon network TV is pulling their soaps off their normal airtime across all coasts.  Daytime soap viewers feel that all of the 24-hour news cable outlets should be the the place to go to see the hearings during the day; as to not to preempt the drama on General Hospital, Days of our Lives, The Young and the Restless, and The Bold and the Beautiful.

Just for the record, the study via NewsBusters showed that on day one of the impeachment hearing the networks scored as such: CBS averaged 1.52 million, ABC  1.29 million viewers, and NBC averaged 1.26 million viewers.   Thursday’s were even worse with CBS averaging 1.4 million, ABC 1.2 million viewers and NBC had 1.1 million viewers.

Now compare that to the weekly daytime soap ratings and total viewers which while it ebbs and slows is still way about this.  According to the study: “The Young & The Restless” has been averaging 3.7 million viewers during the 2019-2020 season and The Bold & The Beautiful averages 3.15 million viewers. ABC’s General Hospital averages 2.15 million viewers while NBC’s Days of Our Lives averages 1.95 million viewers.”

Share your thoughts on the pre=emptions of your favorite soaps, and how the impeachment hearings are, of course, not bringing in higher number in the day-part via the comment section below.

General Hospital Releases Extended Promo “We Have To Lean Into Hope”

As the ABC daytime drama series, General Hospital, continues to be preempted by the impeachment hearings of President Donald Trump, and episodes are not being made available on any other platform at this time, two videos were posted in last 24 hours to the official General Hospital social media accounts.

To tide you over (while you are clamoring for all-new episodes of GH) the soap released an extended promo featuring the folks in Port Charles filled with lots of joy, hope, and love.  It’s main message, “We have to lean into hope” – as the series tells us to “sit back, relax, and enjoy the ride.”

Take a look at some of the reunions, hugs, and special moments featuring the Q’s, Corinthos, Cassadine and other clans in the promo below.

In addition, Finola Hughes (Anna) and Michael Easton (Finn) along with Jophielle Love (Violet) were featured in another video, where the key messaging to fans is that they are currently taping all-new episodes of GH, and that viewers should keep tuned ans posted to GH’s social channels for updates on when new episodes of GH will return.

As of late, GH has been on the upswing in the ratings, too.  So, it’s always frustrating for everyone when weeks of preemptions hit the daytime viewers  experience to enjoy the on-going stories of the soaps.

‘Ambitions’ Canceled By OWN After One Season

After an excellent first season of drama and backstabbing, the soapy nighttime Ambitions has been canceled by OWN.

The cable outlet offered up this statement from OWN President, Tina Perry: “We’re thankful to Will Packer, Jamey Giddens and the entire cast and crew of Ambitions for their creativity and hard work on the show. Every week they delivered great drama, intrigue and a lot of fun storytelling.  We look forward to continue working with Will Packer and his talented team of collaborators in the future.”

The series which starred Robin Givens as Stephanie Lancaster Carlisle was hailed as a multigenerational family saga centered around classic soap character, Stephanie, who finds herself going head to head with some of the most powerful and deceitful players in the city of Atlanta and we learn she can play deceitful like nobody’s business … too!

Ambitions was produced by Will Packer Media in association with Lionsgate and Lionsgate-owned distributor Debmar-Mercury. Packer was executive producer. Arkadie was executive producer/showrunner. Writer Jamey Giddens and Will Packer Media’s Sheila Ducksworth also served as executive producers.

Givens took to Instagram and shared her disappointment on the cancellation. “mood 🙁 found out last week #Ambitions wouldn’t be returning for a second season ….”
