Former Y&R fan favorite Victoria Rowell (Ex-Drucilla) is co-starring in the upcoming UP TV movie entitled Marry Me For Christmas! And there’s a twist! Her former on-screen love interest, Y&R’s Kristoff St. John (Neil) also appears in it!

Rowell even tweeted a picture with St.John that said, “A SUPERB day of filming with @kristoffstjohn1 — the set went WILD! ”

As for the story of Marry Me For Christmas, according to the UP TV website, “Smart, stylish Marci Jewel (Malinda Williams) is the owner of an up-and-coming ad agency and thrilled with her single life in New York — except during the holidays. While all of her cousins are married and having babies, Marci remains the lone holdout in the large Chandler family clan.

As the family’s epic Christmas celebration is about to start, Marci promises to come home for the holidays for the first time in years.  With a deadline looming for a new client, she drags her employee Adam (Brad James) in tow to Atlanta and does the only thing she can in the face of unbearable pressure from her ailing mom Stephanie (Victoria Rowell) and the rest of her family: fakes a fiance.  While caught up in the family’s frenetic holiday drama, Marci learns some unexpected lessons about love, trust and family, particularly when it comes to her new faux fiance Adam and old beau Blair (Karon Riley).

Marry Me For Christmas is set to air in December!  So, what do you think about seeing Kristoff and Victoria together again on-screen?  Does it make you wish for Dru to come back into Neil’s life in Genoa City?  Let us know!

I think its possible for V.R. to return to Y&R especially after doing this movie with K.S.J. For the longest time i thought no way Jose’ because of her diva like persona, the backstage drama ect., ect., ect., but i know of a late daytime star who was involved in some behind the scenes drama back in the 70s and got fired along with two costars but ended back at the same show for a brief year long return in the early 80s…later made a guest appearance on the shows anniversary show…the other two costars were killed off but showed… Read more »

Y&R has gotten so good lately which makes me worry all the more about the new head writer coming aboard. Please, please, please let his man be better than his history predicts he will be! Victoria looks beautiful in that picture. I hope she does come back after going through anger management courses. She seems like she’s always just enraged about something on Twitter. I say bring back Dru and get rid of Lily. Lily is just insufferable with that little coquette act–her voice and mannerisms are either flirtatious and sassy or snippy and bitchy. Those are the only two… Read more »

Rain was the name of my dog back in the 60s…my first pet ever!!! My mother used to find me taking naps in Rains doghouse…i was like 3 to 5 at the time!! Seeing that poster use that name brings back a flood of memories…i miss that dog!

Sorry to go off topic, but Jim there is a great poem by Billy Miller called “A Dog to his Master.” As young as I look, I am growing older faster than he, seven to one is the ration they tend to say. Whatever the number, I will pass him one day and take the lead the way I do on our walks in the woods. And if this ever manages to cross his mind, it would be the sweetest shadow I have ever cast on snow or grass. It gets me every time. Rain is still with you–he’s in… Read more »

OH NO! I have Billy Miller on the brain. As gifted as he is as an actor, he is not a poet, and he probably knows it.
I meant the other Billy–the amazing poet who lives among us– Billy Collins.

I am holding my head in shame now.

Loved the poem, Harry…thanks… Ill never forget my first pet, Rain, and my last which was a cat who was very smart…he understood words…i cry help, he’d run to me and meow in my ear, hide when i told him its bedtime, id say yawn if you want a treat and he did…if you left something on the floor, he would meow continously and you would have to pick up the object because he wouldnt walk around it…lol…what an amazing cat…he passed away 6 years ago…i wish i wouldve got all of it on film but he died unpectedly…back to… Read more »

Nobody loves us like our dogs and yes, our cats too, Jim.
That unconditional love and adulation directed toward us just makes us want to be worthy of it.
Dru cracked me up when she was a ballerina, stampeding all over the dance floor like an out of control bison. Yes, she was a bitch on wheels, but so was Phyllis.
I mean, come on, I have heard of cliff hangers, but leaving Dru hanging on to the edge of that cliff for over 7 years is just cruel and unusual punishment.
Bring her back!

I would love to see Dru and Neil back together again on the Y&R. This could possibly “explode the ratings” if the once beloved duo reunited back together. One could only wish!

Yes. I’ve missed Neil and Dru ever since the day Dru feel over the cliff. It’s about time she comes home and he can finally have a real love in his life again. Come home to Genoa City Dru.

Nice to see them back together, even if temporarily. A great team.

As for the film, the plot sounds heavily “borrowed” from
“Holiday in Handcuffs” (TVM 2007) Melissa Joan Hart & Mario Lopez.

Let me see…N-O. I’m sorry but Victoria Rowell is S-T-I-L-L WAY TOO MUCH OF A D-I-V-A!!!!! Therefore, I WILL NOT be watching that new UP TV Movie if she’s gonna be in it. And, believe me…I ENJOY watching UP OnDemand. But, not this time. Nope. And, BTW…my favorite thing to watch on UP OnDemand are classic episodes of ‘Family Ties’…LOL. Moving on. Next…

Jaybird!!!! LOL, I can’t believe it!!!! Do we actually disagree about something? Go figure!
Seriously, though, I think I missed all that ‘diva’ stuff. Was Victoria that much of a pest? ….later.

Hello Again CeeCee,

1. Let me see…you and I actually disagreeing about something??? My dear…I wonder about that myself…lol.
2. H-o-n-e-y…to this day, Victoria Rowell’s battles with Michelle Stafford (BOTH on-screen and off-screen) are STILL legendary (or whatever). TOTALLY!!!!!
3. Most of all, to say that Victoria Rowell is a ‘pest’ is an UNDERSTATEMENT!!!!! Yes!!!!!

Take care, CeeCee.

A-C-E-S!!!!!

Jaybird we have discussed this before, we both agree Victoria Rowell is a diva and a trouble maker. Victoria never got along with her co stars, as well they can recast Drucilla with a different actress without the attitude. I used to like Victoria Rowell, but not anymore. She is a diva and a has been. lol.

A lot of stars have the big head; I don’t know if Victoria is one of those stars or not. If it’s stated often enough, does that make it true? Victoria is the right person for Neil. Just because she expresses her feelings about what’s happening behind the scenes doesn’t make her a diva. If she says there’s more that can be done with the writing for certain characters, then, let the powers that be prove she’s wrong. Don’t put it in the universe that she’s difficult to work with because she disagrees with them. That’s what happened to Brenda… Read more »

What I was told about Brenda Dickson is she and Bill Bell had an affair that soured and caused problems on the set…Y&R has a history full of sexually charged backstage problems! The viewers have enabled Y&R’s transgressions!

Dru was only thrown off a cliff, no dead body. They’ve had characters come back from worse, lol. She should come back & get Neil back & away from that sleaze Hillary. Let Devon have her. Wouldn’t want her after that anyways.
Dru was always one of my favorite characters.

Kelly Ripa Launches Podcast on SiriusXM

Former All My Children stars Kelly Ripa (ex-Hayley) and Mark Consuelos (ex-Mateo) can add launching a podcast to their extensive resume through their production company, Milojo Productions, and Sirius XM.

According to Deadline, Ripa will host Let’s Talk Off Camera with Kelly Ripa, where she will have in-depth conversations with celebrity guests. Depending on the subject matter, a specialist or expert could also join the episode to provide insight.

In a statement on her new hosting gig and show, Ripa expressed: “After 23 years of interviewing celebrities, authors, musicians and experts on live TV, the big takeaway is that the most compelling and unfiltered conversations happen off camera. I have dreamed of a platform where I can have these honest talks without all the fuss and filter of a camera. Now SiriusXM has made my dream a reality with a podcast featuring friends, both old and new, discussing a variety of topics we all face in life, while getting deep with some experts’ views and advice along the way. Not another podcast, this is off camera!”

New episodes of Let’s Talk Off Camera with Kelly Ripa will be available every week on Stitcher, the SXM App, and all major podcast listening platforms beginning in March.

Kelly will be quite busy co-hosting the syndicated talk show Live with Kelly and Ryan, in addition to Let’s Talk Off Camera with Kelly Ripa.

So, will you check out Kelly’s new podcast? Hope she has some All My Children alum on as guests? Comment below.

General Hospital

Adam Huss Back to GH as Nikolas Cassadine

With Marcus Coloma’s last appearance as Nikolas Cassadine on last week’s January 26th episode of General Hospital, the soap opera brought back Adam Huss to finish out the dark prince’s storyline.

According to Soaps.com. Huss aired today on the January 31st episode of the ABC daytime drama series and will finish out the scenes that were written to be portrayed by Coloma.

Adam previously subbed for Coloma back in September 2021 and again in November 2022.

After it was announced that Coloma was leaving GH, the network and the series agreed that it would be best that Marcus did come in to tape his last episodes since he was recovering from Covid-19 at the time.  Thus, we are seeing those episodes featuring Huss now airing in early February.

So, glad to see Adam back to wrap Nikolas’ current storyline? Share your thoughts in the comment section below.
