Tristan Rogers Back On Y&R In Upcoming Episodes!

Courtesy/CBS

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.

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?

GH’s Nancy Lee Grahn Shares Excerpt From Her Upcoming Memoir

In celebration of beginning her 27th year as Alexis Davis on General Hospital, two-time Daytime Emmy-winner, Nancy Lee Grahn, decided to mark the occasion by revealing to her longtime fans an excerpt from her upcoming memoir due out in 2023.

Taking to her official Facebook page, Nancy shared the excerpt starting with contained some of the back-history of her soap opera alter-ego : “I play the role of Alexis Davis. I am a public defender, prosecutor, personnel injury, civil, malpractice, tax and family attorney. I am the bastard child of Mikos Cassadine who died after being thrown into his own weather machine which he designed to freeze the world. My mother, Kristen Bergman was a famous opera singer whose throat was slit by my father’s wife, Helena. Unhappy with the turn of events, I hurled my frail 75 year old stepmother off a five hundred foot parapet slamming her onto jagged rock only for her to walk away unscathed. Even more determined, I shoved her off a thousand foot cliff into the frigid subzero ocean, Helena not only survived unscathed, she apparently scaled 1000 feet up the cliff and continued to wreak havoc on Port Charles.”

Nancy closed the excerpt with some special acknowledgements: “Always so grateful to have an ongoing contract, my own parking space and people I’ve never met who come up to me regularly and tell me how much younger I look in person. It’s a gift that I have been able to and still get to do what I love to do for such a gloriously long time. I love my job the most because it is the job that gave me the security I needed to greenlight Kate as a single mother, raise her while being able to give her the things I dreamed of giving her, put her through school all the way through college, and will hopefully allow me to spoil my grandchildren. The enormous love & gratitude I have for ABC and Disney for allowing me the privilege of working for them is immeasurable. But the real truth is without the support from all of you, this day would not be what it is. As always, I see you and thank you”

Make sure to read the entire excerpt.  Noe let us know, are you looking forward to what Nancy will share in her upcoming memoir? Share your thoughts in the comment section.

Kelly Ripa Talks On Her New Memoir ‘Live Wire: Long-Winded Short Stories’

Talk show host and All My Children alum, Kelly Ripa (ex-Hayley) is opening up about her life and times in her highly-anticipated memoir available now, Live Wire: Long-Winded Short Stories.

Ripa chatted exclusively with PEOPLE who got some of intel and dish on what’s included in the book.

Kelly told PEOPLE, when she landed the gig as the new co-host of Live with Regis and Kelly, with the late Regis Philbin back in 2001, she felt like she was “getting shot out of a cannon.”  Ripa was also appearing on All My Children at the same time.

She tells the story of when her agent called with the offer, Ripa was told: “They want you to know who your boss is. It was very ominous, and it did not feel good.”  Her agent also said the show didn’t want her, “bringing an entourage.” She brought two people. “I came with hair and makeup,” Kelly says. “It was not an unusual thing for people on a television show to show up with.”

She added that Regis greeted her with executive producer, Michael Gelman, saying: “Uh-oh, Gelman, it’s got an entourage.” It?!  Kelly expressed that she “felt horrible.  He was probably trying to be funny, but at the same time it felt like a pile-on.”

As for Philbin’s attitude at the time, Kelly shared, “I understand that probably he didn’t want a co-host, but the network wanted me to be the co-host and I didn’t think I should pass up that opportunity. I don’t think it was fair to him. But it was also not fair to me.”

The actress-talk show host-producer also talked on her marriage to Mark Consuelos (ex-Mateo), whom she met while both were on All My Children, sharing that they were, “too young to get married! On paper it should not have worked and when it didn’t work, we really worked at it. We fought for our marriage when it would have been easier to quit and throw in the towel.”

According to the book publisher, HarperCollins:  “In ‘Live Wire’, her first book, Kelly shows what really makes her tick. Whether recounting how she and Mark (Consuelos) really met, the level of chauvinism she experienced on set, how Jersey Pride follows her wherever she goes, and many, many moments of utter mortification (whence she proves that you cannot, in fact, die of embarrassment) Kelly always tells it like it is. Ms. Ripa takes no prisoners.”

Days Of Our Lives

Roark Critchlow on His Return to DAYS and Working With Cady McClain

It’s been 12 years since Roark Critchlow appeared on Days of our Lives as Dr. Mike Horton, the brother of Jennifer Horton Deveraux (Cady McClain). However, fans have been excited to see him back on their screens when the series teased his appearance in the extended fall preview.

Now with Jennifer spiraling downward (now that her pill-popping addiction is back), it seems like a good time for Dr. Mike to return to Salem to help his sis. (And if the promo for this week’s DAYS is any indication, it certainly looks like Jennifer is going to be involved in a car crash and need medical assistance or at least some brotherly love.)

Photo: JPI

Roark initially appeared as Mike back in 1994 and left the soap back in 1999. He returned in 2010 for a few episodes honoring the late Frances Reid (Alice Horton) who was Mike’s grandmother.

In an interview about his return with Soap Opera Digest on newsstands now, Roark talks about working with McClain as Jennifer, when he previously worked with Missy Reeves in the part.

Critchlow expressed on sharing scenes with McClain: “Her character is going through a lot. She and I dropped in really easily, I felt. It was a very nice, natural care for each other. It wasn’t difficult, that’s for sure. Obviously, Missy is a super-duper person. But you don’t compare people. Cady and I chatted. We got on good. In terms of story, I thought we pulled it off nicely as being people who’ve known each other their whole lives.”

Look for Roark to make his DAYS re-emergence on the upcoming October 3rd episode of the Peacock streaming series.

So, looking forward to seeing Roark and Cady sharing scenes together? Share your thoughts in the comment section, but first check out this week’s promo for DAYS below.
