Tristan Rogers Back On Y&R In Upcoming Episodes!

Fan favorite Tristan Rogers, who goes from playing Robert Scorpio on General Hospital on occasion, and now once again more often as Colin Atkinson  on The Young and the Restless, updated his followers via social media on when we can expect a “Tristan-sighting” in Genoa City, and back in action on the number one soap opera.

Tristan tweeted, “Back in Dec on Y&R for 4 shows. Loving it. Jan for longer.”

With newly-planted head writer Sally Sussman planning more story for Y&R’s iconic Jess Walton (Jill), what machinations might Colin be up to this time?  Most recently, he was trying to blackmail Jack (Peter Bergman) with the dirt on Phyllis’ (Gina Tognoni) affair with Billy (Jason Thompson)

Rogers has also been busy taping new episode of digital drama series, The Bay.  Tristan is currently in Australia visiting his mother before returning to the states to continue on as Y&R’s Colin.

So, what kind of story do you think Y&R should write or involve Tristan’s Genoa City soap alter-ego, Colin Atkinson? Share your thoughts in the comment section below!

Let’s have some drama for Colin—I vote for a cancer story or something in the lines of a medical crisis. Of course, I would want to see him come out alive but I do think Tristan and Jess could pull the strings of our hearts as we watch them both suffer with what ails him.

Tristan did cancer on “Night Shift.”

I only saw the first episode of that series—anyway, it can be anything just as long as it’s some sort of medical drama. I just want to see Colin in a new direction just so Tristan and Jess have some killer scenes to pull off.

He belongs on GH. Colin sucks!

He does but the GH ptb don’t bring him back for nothing but something lame like passing messages for Luke which was ridiculous and lame. Anna is back with the WSB, you would think that’s a great reason to bring Robert Scorpio back….But I look forward top seeing Tristan on Y&R under new writer. Maybe they’d know what to do with Jill/Colin.

Mysty, thats my one hope because you are right about the knuckleheads at GH, I hope the the new writers will use Tristan correctly as Colin! I would like to see him try and match wits with Victor!

Right, Mysty. GH’s writing team is so bad right now that they cannot do right by Tristan.

Amen Timmm! They can call him Colin or whatever they want, he’s always gonna be Robert Scorpio first and foremost. Wish they’d have him back on GH for something a little more substantial than talking about embryos with Lulu and running errands for an off screen Luke, especially with Valentin Cassadine running amok all over Port Charles.

Rose

Dan…So agree with you. And not a token appearance once in a while. Would love to see Robert and Anna combine their investigating /WSB contacts to go after the more international stuff like he Cassadines (may they also live on forever to be a thorn in Port Charles side). And if they need help, bring Mac and Felicia out of mothballs, especially for the more local “mysteries.”

Ok….this is good, very good. I am so happy for Tristans’s return. Is Travis his illegitimate child? This guy ( Travis) has to take root, somehow, if he is to remain. Perhaps he has inherited Colin’s penchant for the miscreant behavior. And, speaking of Travis; I do believe TPTB plan to break him and Victoria up. Why else the running to bed with his ex? Why do people do that? Including women. Couples have disagreement and bicker all the time….’tis the nature of the beast!!!! So, they have affairs? Anyway, the plan is to get Victoria and Billy together. So… Read more »

Oh, Celia, you’re reading my mind again. These people behave like petulant, spoiled children who, if ANYTHING goes wrong, jump into a new bed for solace. Grow up, already! I’m not a fan of Travis bit I admit this shocked me a little. I thought he’d learned a lesson from his past. Guess not. And you’re so right about the chemistry-free Jason Thompson’s Billy. No way should he and Victoria connect. Oh, if only my dreamboat Billy Miller could do two shows!

Celia
Guest

Well, Soaphound; Fanny has a great idea……return Steve to GH; accommodate his needs and return Billy M to Y & R. Too easy? Yeah!!!! One can only dream.

soapqueenforever
Guest
soapqueenforever

Celia I was thinking the same thing. The GH fans want Steve Burton back because they don’t think Billy Miller is cutting it as Jason. So we can do an even trade, our Billy for their Steve. But where would that leave Jason Thompson. Him and his wife have a baby, I would hate to seechim jobless

Timmm
Guest

Good call Cee, Travis could be Colin’s boy BUT I vote to phase out the light weight. We are seeing less of Stitch, Dylan is leaving soon, I want Travis out to. Lets build the show old school with strength! Cane and Devon are useless to!

Can you believe we dont like Jason Thompson on this show? Wow, I thought it would work, he is a bust!

I feel that Can’s leg injury is going to lead to something more serious? Cancer?

Bye love!

Hi Timmm I agree with everything you said with the exception of Travis. I think he is sooo hot with Victoria and that Billy I just don’t like with Victoria. The two of them just don’t mix.They can get rid of Chloe any day too. First when Patty was making all the phone calls to Sharon & Kevin told Chloe she thought it might be Adam then with the new writers Victor says Adam is dead and Chloe killed him. As if old Vic would just sit on that news about his family and do nothing right?Now the only way… Read more »

Hi, Timmmy, Long time no talk. LOL. Yes, everyone you mentioned should leave. I never liked Cane……the rantings about his good looks are exaggerated ( I do not see it). And, his acting leaves much to be desired. Too bad Lily is with him because I do like her, albeit many do not. She was at her best with Daniel. But, that could be due to the fact that it was young love back then, and she and I are around the same age. We had a lot in common. I identified with her and those feelings stuck, I guess.… Read more »

Cain’s injury will lead to an addiction to pain killers– unless new writers change the direction I can see that coming when on today’s show they kept mentioning have to give him more pain medicine–

although not a huge fan of colin, it will be nice to see the chancellor set back in action. Now with a real experienced headwriter at the helm maybe the Chancellors and Winters family can get some attention and the Abbotts and Newmans can get a temporary break my suggestions would be to bring Nina and Chance back to mix it up with Jill , Billy and Chloe. Chloe s hopefully carrying billys baby, maybe she can get his brother chance to help raise her much against nina and jills protest. Have colin meddle with lily and cane who have… Read more »

With the return of some really terrific head writers, not to mention the new EP, I think the writing will improve for Tristan.
He certainly deserves better than what he was handed by JFP and Fronz. Give him his dignity back (although some might argue he never had it) and let him go toe to toe with Victor Newman.
I harbor some degree of hope that the new Y&R regime will recognize what they have in Tristan and do right by him.

What I dislike is Colin was originally written as this ruthless crime lord from Australia whose son Cain had to pretend to be someone else and go into hiding for protection when he turned Daddy dearest in– and when they hooked Colin up with Jill they suddenly turned him into a two bit con artist and not a very good one at that— like Jeff ( chelsea’s father) —- When Colin had this darker side he was interesting– trying to kidnap the twins, the whole mystery around the death of Cain’s sister that was never solved etc– so if they… Read more »

I agree with this!! Send both of them back to Australia. Rogers may have his fans from GH (which I’ve never watched) but I do not like what he has done on Y&R.

Cane is even worse. How has this character stayed on Y&R for almost a decade??

@Barbara idiot fans and yes I call you idiots hired a plane to fly over CBS studios to save DG/Canes job amazing that it worked MAB another idiot producer ! Totally agree with Mary /Colin could have been so ruthless then MAB decides let’s give Genie Francis a job and yes I adore Genie but we create a worhless character Canes mom and the rest goes to hell. If this show survives the crapfest that we have been fed for almost 10 years it will be a bloody miracle

Love it, love it, love it, Mary!!!! Enlightening words you speak. Agreed.
At this point in the realm of Y&R, the best performer iiis..ta-da: Alyvia. ‘Faith’ is the adult among the adults. She is so good…this kid will take the big screen by storm.
I am done with all the characters Timmm mentioned, and then some. He also has a point about Cane and his ‘lame’ leg…LOL. good. I cannot stomach him any more.
As far as Travis? What a jerk. Fess up!! Coward. What will he do when his ex ( Michelle? Not sure….she annoys me already) announces she’s pregnant?

Good answers Celia. Faith can teach her whole clan how to grow up. She is such a terrific actress. She played Dolly Parton as a child a year or two ago in the movie A Coat of Many Colors and was excellent. There is a sequel coming out the end of the month. I’m not certain of the exact date, but it is on CBS, so I am sure they will run promos during. Y&R You alreadyk new when Travis and the ex were going at it, that it was a pregnancy waiting to happen, which of course Victoria will… Read more »

@soapqueenforever. Hi, soapqueen, What a great idea!!!! Billy and Cane. I would like that premise to be explored……anything to enhance Jason T’s performance. He is not working for me; neither with Phyllis nor with Victoria. He is a good actor, but I see not the ‘grab me’ factor. Actually, neither does Tognoni. Her rendition of Phyllis is not the femme fatale I was expecting. Yes, I have seen COATS OF MANY COLORS, last year. It was actually shown again, not too long ago. My little nieces love the movie, so it was dvr-ed . They watch it over and over.… Read more »

Like Damien, I’m not a fan of the Colin Atkinson character, but with Sally & Kay back at the writers’ desk, I’m hoping for some good story for him and Jill (the wonderful Jess Walton).

Hooray. Love my Tristan Rogers. I always loved him with Jill. They can have him scrubbing floors at the coffee house for all I care, as long as I get to heat that delicious accent. I love when he has scenes with Colin, to Aussie accents for the price of one. Maybe he can team up with Jeffrey and start some kind of business together. And along the way, Jill and Gloria can throw their snarky comments back and forth. Anything would be better than Hillary and the GC Buzz. She is l8ving herself way to much over that. I… Read more »

Colin and Jill should team up to take on Victor. Coli. Would look good running things there, along with Jill. Let them do some serious take over business, but let Colin make us smile. It’s a highlight of the day when Colin smirks and makes you laugh.

I love Tristan Rogers, and Colin is an interesting character, but I feel like he would be much better suited at GH as Robert. GH needs him more right now, especially with Anna rejoining the WSB. And how great would it have been to see Robert and Robin share a scene together during Kimberly McCullough’s recent return?

Cailtin Reilly to Appear in General Hospital Tribute Episode to Her Father John Reilly

Tik Tok star, Cailtin Reilly, who is the daughter of the late soap veteran, John Reilly, will play a key role in the General Hospital tribute episode in her dad’s honor.

According to Variety who broke the casting news, Caitlin will portray Annie, formerly known as Anna, the daughter of her father’s character Sean Donely and Tiffany Hill (Sharon Wyatt).

In a statement on her casting,  Caitlyn expressed: “Words can’t describe how honored I am to be playing my dad’s daughter on the show. I grew up on the set of ‘General Hospital,’ watching him work for years, so it’s exciting to dive into a new character in honor of him. He’ll absolutely be by my side in spirit on set rooting me on. It fills my heart with gratitude to be a part of this tribute to him, and to feel so close to him working on a show he loved so much doing.”

The character of Anna was last seen on-air back in August of 2013, when she was portrayed by Courtney Halverson. In story at that time, Sean was poisoned by polonium and he teamed up with Luke (Anthony Geary) to track down the man who extorted millions for the cure, while Anna repeatedly got in contact with that man to get the medicine her father so desperately needed.

John Reilly past away back in January 2021.  The talented actor first appeared on GH back in 1984 and last appeared on the daytime drama series back in 2013.

So, looking forward to seeing Caitlyn playing Sean and Tiffany’s daughter? Comment below.

Former ‘Bachelor’ Colton Underwood Comes Out as Gay

This morning on the highly-promoted sit-down interview with GMA’s Robin Roberts, former ‘Bachelor’ lead Colton Underwood, revealed that he was gay and that he has finally come to terms with it.

The ex-football star shared: “Obviously this year’s been a lot for a lot of people, and it’s probably made a lot of people look themselves in the mirror and figure out who they are and what they’ve been running from or what they’ve been putting off in their lives. For me, I’ve ran from myself for a long time and I’ve hated myself for a long time, and I’m gay. I came to terms with that that earlier this year and have been processing it. The next step in all of this was sort of letting people know. I’m still nervous, but it’s been a journey for sure. I’m like the happiest and healthiest I’ve ever been in my life. That means the world to me.”

Underwood expressed he went through a very dark time to be able to reveal his truth: “I got into a place in my personal life that was dark and bad. I can list a bunch of different things, but they’d all be excuses. I think overall the reason why now is because I got to a place where I didn’t think I was ever going to share this. I would rather have died than say ‘I’m gay,’ and I think that was sort of my wake up call. There was a moment in L.A. that I woke up and I didn’t think I was going to wake up,” he said. “I didn’t have the intentions of waking up, and I did. And I think for me that was my wake up call, that, ‘This is your life. Take back control.’ I think looking back even beyond that is… even just suicidal thoughts and driving my car close to a cliff, like, ‘Oh, if this goes off the cliff, it’s not that big of a deal.’ I don’t feel that anymore.”’

As to the questions or anger that ‘Bachelor Nation’ are going to have that Underwood misled the female contestants on his season, or he duped the audience, Colton said: “I thought a lot about this…Do I regret being ‘The Bachelor?’ And handling it the way that I did?’  I do think I could have handled it better, I’ll say that. I just wish I wouldn’t have dragged people into my own mess of figuring out who I was. I genuinely mean that, but also at the same time I can say ‘I’m sorry’ to all of those women, I can also say ‘thank you,’ because without them and without the ‘Bachelor’ franchise, I don’t know if this would have ever come out.”

Colton was highly-promoted during his season as the “Virgin Bachelor”.  He acknowledged he was indeed a virgin at that time, but it was because he was gay, but just “didn’t know how to handle it”.   Underwood also shared he was thankful to God that he was cast on the reality-competition as one of its season’s leads because he thought that would make him straight.  He told Roberts in his talk with God, ‘Finally, you’re letting me be straight. Finally, you’re giving me a wife, a fiancée, and then I’m going to have the kids, then I’m going to have the house, and then I’m going to have all this.’

As to his contentious break-up with ‘Bachelor’ contestant, Cassie Randolph, where she had at one time had a restraining order put on Underwood and later revoked it, he admitted: “I would like to say sorry for how things ended. I messed up, I made a lot of bad choices.”  But told Robin Roberts, he indeed loved Cassie, sharing, “That only made it harder and more confusing for me. if I’m being very honest, I loved everything about her. And it’s hard for me to articulate exactly what my emotions were, and going through that relationship with her was, because I obviously had an internal fight going on. I would just say that I’m sorry from the bottom of my heart. I’m sorry for any pain and emotional stress I caused. I wish it wouldn’t have happened the way it did. I wish that I would have been courageous enough to fix myself before I broke anybody else.”

Underwood shared that his upbringing in the Catholic church and being in the world of high school, college, and pro sports contributed to why he never came out previously, citing,: ” learned in the Bible that gay is a sin. I had made mistakes in my sports and in my athletic career, and when you make mistakes, ‘that play was gay’ or that was a bad… gay was always affiliated with a connotation of negativity, and I think there’s a lot of things when I look back, like, ‘No wonder I held it in.’”

So, were you surprised that Colton revealed he was gay? How do you feel about the journey he expressed in his interview on GMA to speak his truth? Share your thoughts via the comment section below.
