Earlier Wednesday, Deadline reported that The Young and the Restless Sofia Pernas (Marisa) was let go from the series on Monday due to budgetary cuts, and then in turn landed a new gig on the CW pilot Translyvania.

However, this evening a show spokesperson for the CBS Daytime drama series related Pernas’ status with the show, and that in fact, “She’s recurring and will continue to be seen on the show.”

This comes as good news to those who were a bit miffed by the sudden reported departure of the actress by the mainstream outlet. The Moroccan-born actress came on to Y&R during the Marco Annicelli/Jack Abbott (Peter Bergman) doppelganger storyline and made her debut back in June of 2015.

So, what do you think of the updated status of Sofia with Y&R? Glad she will actually be returning on a recurring basis? Comment below!

She’ll be recurring like Lachlan Buchanan?

I’ll miss Pernas. I hope she finds great success in primetime.

There’s still hope. Kyle was changed to recurring and we practically never see him.

Too bad she’s still around, between her character and Chelsea, Y&R has become a complete bore. You have people who’ve been on the show for years doing great work and then you get these new characters getting more screen time for forgettable story lines that keep repeating. If I have to witness one more scene where Chelsea is mad at and hates Adam, but loves him and forgives 2 days later I will throw up repeatedly. How Noah conveniently falls madly in love with Marisa is uncomfortable to watch because she looks like someone who baby sat him when he… Read more »

The never ending cycle of break ups and reunions for Billy and Victoria must really make you sick.

Oh, thank you, penny!! I thought I was the only one who finds Chelsea obnoxious and hypocritical.
I don’t mind Marissa. However, I am confused by the character and her role??
Chelsea reminds me so much of Nikki. Out of the gutter and into the palace.
Suddenly, Chelsea has become this pious, model citizen, wife and mother???? How soon we forget.
She has crowned herself Adam’s parole officer, whip and all!!
I fully expect Adam to start wearing skirt and apron, with a feathery duster in his hand.

Another funny post! I think they need to do a dream sequence with Chelsea dressed as an officer with a whip on Adam! Once again, CeeCee, you are spot on!

I knew the ‘firing’ of Sofia was untenable….coming out of left field, like that?!
How could Marissa have left in the midst of ongoing conflict? The only choice would have been to hightail it out of the country with Noah.
As gorgeous as she is, I wish she were not with Noah……she needs a man. He still seems like a teen to me.
Good luck in her dual venture.

CEECEE that’s the very reason they up and said oops she’s recurring. .because evil JP and CP didn’t expect her to land prime time so quickly and now instead of letting her out of her contract they’ll make her miserable. If the new show is good and Y&R still has her they’ll use it to their exploitive advantage.

Of course, you’re right, dav. The PTB would do anything underhanded, wouldn’t they? Whatever is to their advantage…that’s showbiz, I guess.

I agree, that is really messed up of Y&R to say she is recurring not on contract.

Playing devil advocates here, maybe they really had her recurring before she tried for the other show???

Robert is a good guy, he has the same problem as the old Billy Abbott, David Thom, had. Even though he is a man, he still looks so my like a boy. Nice to a point but remember how silly David Thom looked in scenes with Victor saying he will fight for Victoria? Same with Noah, he looks silly next to Luca and when he talks to Grandpa he looks like he is afraid to tell him he wet his pants!

CeeCee
Guest

Oh, don’t get me wrong, Timmm. I like Noah/Robert a lot. That’s not the issue. Marissa is not the right pairing for him, as wasn’t David for Victoria, as you said. Byeeee.

I always thought that about Noah also. He’s very boyish.

Hey, my Timmmy,
Have you noticed how arrogantly TPTB are writing Noah in, now? He was always so mild; now, he is suddenly tempestuous….has a bad temper? Do the bosses think that by changing Noah’s persona, he will appear older?, more mature? WOW!!!! And triple LOL.
Perhaps, he’s bipolar , like his mother? HaHa. Bye.

I know, Bart. I had commented on that, months ago. LOL. she started out with this nondescript, heavy accent; and then, lost it overnight. Baffling??
She’s a good actress….but, the character? Not with Noah…they do not make a good couple.

Oh CeeCee How I hope your wrong. Glummer & Luca. Enough already of her. She’s been on daily for a couple wks. seems like months.

@Nikki.
Ahh, Nikki. You are cracking me up. I cannot stand either of them…singly, they really give me itchy hives all over. What will they do to me together, as a couple? Lol.
Sorry to say this, my friend, but brace yourself. This is just the beginning. I may be putting my foot in my mouth, but I think something sexual/romantic is brewing between Summer and Luca.
Right now, they commiserate and confide in each other…..then, it’s straight to “Voulez-vous coucher avec moi”. LOL.

CeeCee
Guest
CeeCee

Oh, Nikki. I just had a thought. Could TPTB be contemplating a romantic interest between Luca and Victoria? Same last-name, different girl. Poor Victor, LOL.
I am not liking this Phyllis and Billy thing either.
And, what’s up with Hilary. Dreams of grandeur? Has she flipped her lid? She wants to run the town? HaHa.
GC is running amok with crazies.

Maybe she is a godchild of one of the Bells? Its weird. I dont want to attack her as a person BUT as far as the show, to me, she adds NOTHING to any of the episodes! When I see Marissa with Noah it makes me ill to think they killed off Courtney who was a much better actress/character that had lots of future angles to explore! Marissa arrives and her an Noah are sleep inducing and then Glummer is still there smirking in EVERY scene!

CeeCee

As I said, Nikki…we will see much more of Summer. She and Luca will be hitting the sheets soon. Oh, JOY; Oh, BOY; Oh, MY!! Victor will have another conniption.

Hey, Nikki. Sofia is only 26, I think; and, Robert is 30. She looks older than her age and he looks younger than his real age. This fact is neither here nor there, of course. Age is trivial in soaps. The point is, Noah, as Devon, looks 12. Ergo, Devon’s facial hair. It doesn’t help. Should Noah grow a beard? These guys just have baby faces. Lol. I remember my older brother, before he married his wife, he had a crush on an much older woman….he grew whiskers here and there…HaHa. He still looked 16. Lol. Also, Marissa has that… Read more »

It is just hard to know whether to believe them. Several characters lately have gone on recurring and we haven’t seen them since. She is a terrific find, her story is red hot, it seems to be a very poorly thoughout decision on the part of JFP etc.

She’s a good actress, but her resting face appears to be “scowl”. Maybe it’s because she’s been saddled with such inconsistent material. I like Y&R right now, even maybe a tad more than my sentimental favorite, General Hospital.

Oh, what a shame. I was hoping that she would be gone for good. She’s so boring, and looks too old for Noah. Noah looks like a schoolboy from the 40’s, especially with that awful haircut he has. All he needs now are the short grey pants to go with his hair. He’s boring too, so is Devon, Neil, Hillary and Summer. I agree with Penny (above), Chelsea is always upset with Adam, and interferes with his work business. She needs to get a life and concentrate on something else. Adam needs somebody who will support him in whatever he… Read more »

Liked the character when she was introduced as a badass and then, as seems to be common with the current writing regime, the character changed into a whimp. Couldn’t care less if she was gone……and takes Noah with her.

This show needs to cut alot of its dead weight — Marissa, Luca, Summer, Sage, NuBilly, Dylan, Stitch/Max, the list goes on and on.

the list goes on and on but its a good start! Stitch and Summer being at the top!

Iakovos

Lovely actress but I think Y&R can dispense with all things connected with that horrible Jack Abbot doppelganger storyline. Am weary of middleagers involved with baby switches. And that Sharon is dealing with it AGAIN! I would like a strong NEW family to come to Genoa City a la the Abbotts and Newmans circa 1980. Make them interesting, create enough of them, and do not tie them to current canvas with revisionist history. Some of the stories are beyond boring, making some of our characters beyond stupid. It is difficult to watch some of them struggle.

Tani Sterling

Yes, it would be just what is needed. There are too many almost incestuous connections. Don’t mean to drop the entire cast because I love the show like family, but don’t always like it. However, I cannot stand to watch anymore Neal, Devon, Hillary storylines.

Iakovos
Guest
Iakovos

I am with you, Tani. I do not like what has been done to Neil Winters. he was a decent man. They made him and Devon unlikable. And this affair of the hearts has gone on too long. I just do not care anymore.

Timmm

They brought Courtney along slowly. She was a good actress and her and Noah worked as a couple. She came from money. They could have written in her family and the two families could have been introduced together not approving of their kids dating. Well, they blew THAT opportunity! But I agree, they need new powerhouse. I loved Jeanne Cooper but when they killed her off they killed the Chancelor name! So now its all Newman and Abbott stories. No wonder why Stitch gets to sleep with all the hot chicks!

Nikki
Guest

Timmm I don’t think they killed Jeanne Cooper (Kay Chancelor) off I think I remember she passed away in real life. She was with the show for so long I don’t think they wanted to replace her. It would be like replacing Victor Newman.

Timmm/Nikki,
This is why I sooo believe that Mac should be brought back. I never felt the love between Devon and Catherine. Never saw the affinity between grandchild and grandmother. What Catherine and Mac shared was undefinable; true affection. I think Mac should continue the legacy, not Devon; who is making a mockery of himself and what the Chancellor name represents.

So gorgeous….so exotic looking, she is, Samantha.
Love her acting, as well. I just wish she were paired with someone else. I know Robert is older than Sofia, but, how old is his character Noah supposed to be. He certainly does not look 30 to me. He looks much younger.

Timmm I think so as well. I know she isn’t old but Noah looks like a teenager. I loved Courtney as well and it would have been such a great story had they hung on to Detective Harding as well. I thought he had a crush on Courtney and Noah seemed a little jealous of their working relationship.They had a perfect triangle and had to ruin it. Now their doing the same thing with Luca. There going to stick him with Glummer and they should have had him with Mariah. I can just imagine how Kevin would feel especially since… Read more »

Nikki, I just said this but its worth repeating and elaborating, killing off Katherine was a big mistake! When Katherine left the show you lost Jill, Tucker, Ester, Murphy, Nina, Mac, Phillip and Katherine was a “Grandmother” to the younger characters who would seek her advice. For example, Chloe and Kevin. Her BFF Nicki has no one to turn to and even Jack and Victor had a special relationship with Katherine. Oh, Paul, Michael and Lauren. Whew, you get my point! All the respect in the world to Jeanne BUT you have to put the show first! Case in point,… Read more »

Timmm I think we’ll have to agree to disagree on that one. If E.B.(Victor) died they would need someone who could play the villain but I think he could easily be replaced with Ray Wise (Ian Ward). as in if they let Ian out of jail or he escaped he would be after the whole Newman family not to mention Phyllis (who he tricked) which would bring Jack into it and now we’re back to the Newman’s & the Abbott’s. Don’t you agree? Mind you I think ole Victor thinks the show would go under without him.

Timmm
Guest
Timmm

Nikki, I LOVE Ray Wise and welcome him back but he is not a NEWMAN! I would hope Ian gets out of jail and kills Phyllis for her betrayal. But you need a Victor on the show because he connects the dots. Same with Katherine, she was the focal point of so many characters. I hate that she gave Devon all that money. For what? He has been a complete fool and you NEVER see him pay his respects to Kathrine!

they had to bump her due to budgetary constraints?
is the budget the reason every scene takes place now either at crimson lights, gcac or top of the tower? its so sad… we havent seen the newman ranch in a year, the abbot home in months,the baldwins home is long forgotten, every bedroom scene takes place in the gcac hotel room. y n r broke? how about lily and cane let go to trim budget, zero story for them, its so tired

I think the actress is okay, but I don’t like the pairing of Marissa and Noah. She’s much to sophisticated for him. He’s an innocent little boy. Maybe she likes him because he’s problably the only male friend that’s treated her well.

‘The View’s’ Sunny Hostin & Ana Navarro Test Positive for COVID-19; Asked to Leave Studio Ahead Of V.P. Kamala Harris Interview

This morning on The View, an awkward situation arose, when while on the air, co-hosts, Sunny Hostin and Ana Navarro, where asked to leave the panel desk and exit the studio.

All of this happened before a live interview was scheduled to happen with Vice President Kamala Harris.  It was revealed that Hostin and Navarro tested positive for Covid-19, and were ‘breakthrough” cases since they had been previously vaccinated.

Host, Joy Behar delivered the news to the audience at home so they knew what was going on with the bizarre moment playing out on live TV, sharing,  “Ana and Sunny, at the last minute we realized they have tested positive for COVID so they have been taken off of the show.”

Harris, who had planned to join the ladies at the table, instead was going to be interviewed remotely from a different place in the ABC TV studio in New York, while Joy Behar and Sara Haines remained on the set.

As for Kamala Harris, Behar added: “It’s very important we keep her healthy and safe. The Secret Service is doing things to make her feel safe.”

While the delay was announced, Behar and Haines took questions from the in-studio audience.

Watch Behar below explain what was going on.

Then let us know, how do you feel The View handled the situation? Comment below.

TONIGHT: 73rd Primetime Emmy Awards on CBS

Who will take home the gold at Sunday night’s 73rd annual Primetime Emmy Awards?  Well, from the looks of it .two heavy favorites going into it are Ted Lasso in the comedy categories, and The Crown in the dramatic categories, but as we have seen on previous Emmys there may be upsets afoot.

The broadcast’s executive producer, Ian Stewart, confirmed an opening number, when he previously told Deadline, the number “is going to be a lot of people participating, singing, rapping.  It’s hopefully going to be a very impactful start, a ton of fun.”

The Primetime Emmys will have nominees in attendance, with a more limited amount virtually, and those who have tickets can stay in the venue through the whole show, unlike the Grammys or Oscars were those nominated were ushered in and out.  Look for the Emmys to take place outside the theatre under a tent.
