Victoria Rowell in online response to Y&R rep contacting her on bringing back Dru!

According to Victoria Rowell’s series of tweets today on her twitter account , a certain rep from The Young and the Restless was in contact with her to discuss a possible return to the show as Drucilla Winters, and that according to Rowell, “Maria Arena Bell was trying to bring her back”  to Genoa City.

Rowell on twitter stated:  “So, for the past 3 days there’s been an appointed liaison between Maria Bell and myself, contacting me via text, at my Atlanta  home &in LA.  I found it odd first of all, that I was being approached as a respected & tenured actor, with theatrical representation in this way. I was insulted to learn that Maria Arena Bell was “trying” to bring me back. Phooey! After everything I’ve given and been through on Y&R…The word TRY shouldn’t even be in the mix. A respectful business call would have been appropriate. And so you see, EVEN on a business level.  There is a demonstration of disrespect. I know for a fact Maria made it possible for Eric Braeden’s return so how hard did she TRY for him?   I have this to say: It’s all contingent upon who is perceived as important, WHO Maria is willing to take lumps 4 & WHOSE bluffs she’ll call. I stand by the integrity of my work and know my value. If anyone would like to discuss business please contact my attorney, Chuck Hurewitz.”

The Victoria Rowell and Y&R  debate/discussion/controversy/… continues!

Victoria Rowell is full of herself, yes she played the role of Dru like no other, but she is ridiculous. I hope they don’t bring her back. I feel she has disrespected the powers that be at Y&R once again in a public forum. She has a lack of class and a big mouth.

I’m sorry to hear that there is so much discord between the talent (Ms. Rowell) and the creative powers that be over at Y&R. Please find a way to work out your creative differences so that the long-time fans of the show can continue to enjoy Drucilla! Young and the Restless should seriously move mountains to bring her back, and I hope that Ms. Rowell will get the appreciation she deserves and perhaps lose a touch of the ego so that millions of fans get what they want. We want DRUCILLA. Play nice, kids!

Indeed. Dru needs to come back. Neil is dull and almost invisible w/ out her!

Although VR has a pt abt keeping it professional by giving her a business phone call, VR’s complaining is just way too much. Maybe they’re texting her as a way of opening the dialogue. Then if that goes well (w/c didn’t), they’ll make the calls, set a meeting in person, and talk abt her return. The fact that MAB actually is initiating some kind of way for Dru to return is great on her part, despite the actors that would be against VR’s return. However, how difficult is VR compared to Zimmer, Strasser, Braeden, etc.? What the heck does VR… Read more »

Ugh! Something is amiss. Never really watched Y & R, but I am familiar with Victoria as well as her character on the show. I find it funny how Victoria is calling someone out for “unprofessional” behavior yet her own actions are very similar. Surely, she could have texted back or even phone to say I am interested in talking, can you have Maria give me a call? Her decision to put this info. out on twitter shows me a) she is being unprofessional herself and b) she probably just needs more press so she can continue to promote her… Read more »

Shut this wretched biatch up already!!!

They clearly DO NOT want her back, she is starting to really look pathetic!! She is an attention whore whose book did not get the attention her egomaniacal mind thought it would. She should stop going through the press like this and start eating a big ol slice of humble pie.

Just finished checking out Victoria’s twitter page. It is clear to me she has an axe to grind. Many posts about Y & R and what she perceived as unfair treatment. Clearly, her past statements where she said she would love to return to Y & R are in direct contrast to her posts. I found many of her posts to be childish and make it appears as is she is out for revenge. I wonder if she realizes how unprofessional her own posts are, and how bad she actually comes off. Does not seem like much of a class… Read more »

I have a producer who was in negotiations with VR about joining another project . She clearly wants to be respected and given an opportunity to write, direct, produce and, also be in a front burner story. However, when given all she requested, it wasn’t enough. VR is professional, talented and beautiful yet may be doing all she can to get her other projects produced and her book higher on the bestseller lists. She is a kind person but even I, from a far, have been watching this public argument and I am not impressed. I believe the past is… Read more »

Well it looks like VR won’t be back to Y&R anytime soon, if ever, and this time it’s her own fault. Very disappointing all around for a “professional” to respond to what she’s been wanting for so long in such a way.

Check out her twitter page now. Even more smack she is talking about Y & R. I find it hard to believe that she would allow of these incidents totake place while she was there and NOT say anything at the time. Why wait so long to speak out? Makes me question the validity of some of her “stories”. Sad, because without these outbursts she could be so successul back on daytime and what show would not want her back? Apparently, none of them do and you have toa sk, is it because of her reputation? One would think so.… Read more »

VR is an amazing talent. She is unbelievably pretty and gifted. The Winters family have long been background or scenery. Sadly we see that Dru was the shining light of the family. Neil is unbelievably dull without her. All the love interests they’ve tried to pair him with since Dru’s departure have crashed and burned. Frankly Lilly either needs to be miraculously healed or her characther needs to go away for treatment and stay. The cancer story line is losing steam for me. VR may be overracting to having received a text from someone. But, if the message was truly… Read more »

Victoria Rowell has no class. I’m glad she’s off Y&R. They should send the whole Winters clan packing. They are extremely boring. Maybe Ms. Rowell should consider doing Real Housewives of Atlanta. She has a lot in common w/ those classless ghetto whores.

i want Dru to come back… i was pi**ed when they took her off. she was the only reason why i watched Y&R when i was a kid.. i have read some of the things that has been posted by all.. but one thing is true, that soap is NOT the same without her, yes she may have been over the top a little by putting that Info on Twitter, but NONE of us know what she really went through with the Big Wigs over Y&R. i will go to sigh the petition with hopes that she return to Y&R… Read more »

You go! Although, me and so many like me, would love to see you back on the show. It has not been the same since you have been gone. It’s beginning to get pretty boring and we know that you could put the much needed spice in the show.
We think it would be wonderful for Lily’s mother to reappear in her life, now that she is married and has those twins.
For your Fans, and believe me you have plenty of them, won’t you come back to Y&R???

Judith Light To Star and Executive Produce New Limited Series Along with Noah Wyle, ‘Shadows in the Vineyard’

Two-time Daytime Emmy and Tony winner, Judith Light (Ex-Karen, One Life to Live) has a major project on the way in which she will not only star, but executive produce.  Light will serve as one of the EP’s along with Noah Wyle (Ex-ER) and the two will be part of the cast of Shadows in the Vineyard, which, according to Deadline will be a limited TV series, with a potential spinoff.

Shadows in the Vineyard is based on journalist Maximillian Potter’s bestselling book Shadows in the Vineyard: The True Story of the Plot to Poison The World’s Greatest Wine.  Production is expected to begin in the first quarter of 2021 in Europe.

Written by John Newman (Get Shorty, Proud Mary), Peter Cambor and Potter, Shadows in the Vineyard is set against the backdrop of the gorgeous, rolling countryside of the Côte-d’Or in Burgundy, France. The series is based on the true story of the outlandish 2010 plot-by-poison extortion scheme, a sinister criminal conspiracy that targeted the most sought-after and expensive wine in the world – the legendary Romanée-Conti.

The Landmark Studio Group will market the series, and one of its executives, David Ozer, who will also serve as another EP on the series shared: “Shadows in the Vineyard is rife with rich characters and a compelling narrative that will take viewers on a twisted tale of both a shocking who-done-it mystery and a journey of self-discovery that will resonate with a global audience,  With Maximillian, John, Peter and Sam leading the charge of capturing the heart of the story for the screen, along with the star talents of Judith and Noah and a beautiful location to create the ambience, we have no doubt that this series, which has spinoff potential, will be a hit.”

So, what do you think of Judith’s next project? Comment below.

GH’s Lisa LoCicero On Olivia and Ned’s Kiss During COVID-19: “For Those Asking, That Kiss Was Filmed Before We Broke …”

General Hospital had its triumphant return on Monday with all-new episodes, it’s first since the coronavirus pandemic shut production down.

Since its airing, many viewers took to social media questioning the kiss in the episode between the characters of Ned (Wally Kurth) and Olivia (Lisa LoCicero), when protocols had been put in to place by the ABC daytime drama series, and that it going to have to come up with more creative ways to illustrate intimate moments during the editing of upcoming episodes.

Photo: ABC

Throughout the day, several soap pundits including Carolyn Hinsey let viewers know that some of the scenes in this week’s GH episodes were actually filmed months ago before the production break including the kissing moment.

On Tuesday, long-running series cast member, Lisa LoCicero took to Twitter to clarify that as well to the fans, tweeting” Happy to be back with new shows! To those asking, the kiss was filmed before we broke..”

What was nice was that it seems with Dante (Dominic Zamprogna) back on the canvas, ans trouble brewing in the marriage of Ned and Olivia, that LoCicero may have some meaty material coming her way.

So, glad to hear from Lisa about the kiss in the episode? Do you hope she will be featured more in story coming up? Comment below.
