Oh, what a mess! The Young and the Restless’, Winter’s brothers, Kristoff St. John (Neil) and Darius McCrary (Malcolm), where guests on Sirius Satellite Radio’s Jamie Foxx’s The Foxhole last Friday.  During the actors interview,  former Y&R star, Victoria Rowell (Ex-Drucilla), called in and shocked St. John, McCrary, and the host, with her banter and calling-out St. John on certain behind-the-scenes situations, and bringing to the forefront again, how disgruntled she is with Y&R’s decisions and politics to not to have had her work behind the camera, and more on her problems with her former cast mates, and the lack of African-Americans on daytime.

On YouTube the audio of the interview was posted in two parts, so you can listen for yourself to this very uncomfortable, informative, and controversial situation!    Listen to the segment after the jump!

I listened to the entire interview. Sad, on many levels. To begin with, Darius was out of control. His repeated use of the “N” word was offensive, and he appeared to make light of the entire issue. Even if he did not agree with Victoria, or have knowledge of the incidents she spoke of, he should have had the good sense to recognize the serious nature of her allegations and behaved more professional and appropriate. Period. He revealed his true colors. Color me UNIMPRESSED. The same could be said of my opinion of his acting abiolities — unimpressed. Victoria. It… Read more »

Please, if you do not stand up for injustice, you have no right EVER TO COMPLAIN OF IT. If half of what she spoke of was going on, all the black folk should have stood up as a groups and said “no more”. There are no excuses regardless of whether folks had families or not. You want to play BS, then let BS play you. Weak MFERs. You always want someone to stand up for you, but never stand up for anyone else. That is why black folk never progress. You reap what you sew.

The thing is, she has been making these claims for years. She is angry that she was not allowed to direct shows because Susan Flannery, a woman who has been in daytime since the 60’s directs occassionally for their sister show. The fact is, they hired Victoria as an actress. They had no obligation to allow her to direct. There are also two sides to this story. I have heard that she was a complete diva and quite difficult to work with. At any rate, we will all get to see just who she really is when she becomes a… Read more »

I could not agree more. You are 100% right on target with this one. Who could blame Y&R for not wanting VR back. Her behavior is ridiculous. I think they should bring Drucilla back with another actress and then talk to VR. Just a thought.

Why is she complaining now if she quit the show so long ago? She should have addressed it then, if that is why she left.

McCrary should be ashamed for himself. He did nothing positive for the African American community in that interviw, only made us look foolish and ghetto. He sounds ignorant and like he could care less, like the only thing he wants is the paycheck.

Oooh…Renee Goldsberry would make a great Drucilla! I would luv to see her back on a soap. Now that One Life has killed her off, she should go to Y&R.

When she first started making claims of what goes on behind the scenes, I was angry. After years of books, tweets and interviews, however, she lacks credibility. Apparently she has no concern for what others may think and is no friend of Kristoff even after years of working with him. The fact that she chose to ambush him and drag him into her fight, while he is still working on the show, tells me she is a self-centered, narcissistic person. Where is her husband, mothers, sisters, girlfriends? Someone love her enough to tell her that she needs to let this… Read more »

Victoria – You are a reallly good actress and your talents will be appreciated elsewhere. BUT, you need to let this go!!! Years have past and there are other roles to play. Y&R is not the only game in town. Release this from your heart.

I think Vicki is a fabulous actress who is ireplacable as drucilla, thats why I feel like she needs to drop the knife on this, she claime she cares about what the audience want, but what the audience want is both Vicki and Dru back. The more she keeps this war going on the more determine the show is to not let her back and then no one is happy!

It’s too bad this discussion took place in forum that apparently could not appreciate Victoria’s points. What I heard was as much effort among the host and other guests to discount her arguments and discredit her as she has probably encountered among the white Hollywood establishment she has been battling. Whites who have no intention of recognizing their own racial prejudice, discriminatory practice, or hatred never have to self-examine or self-correct and need never lift a finger to keep black people down so long as we continue to do it to ourselves– by beating each other down, accepting less than… Read more »

She sounds like an obsessed, crazy beeotch. I truly doubt if Ms. Stafford spit on her.

Over the past two days, Vaughan took to his Instagram to share some sentiments, ‘thanks you’s’ and some photos of some of his favorite memories with his castmates expressing, “Seeing it’s the last week I’m airing on @nbcdays …I wanted to share some great captured memories this week with my incredible fans & castmates.”

The actor also posted a special photo album of pics with his longtime on-screen partner and love interest, Arianne Zucker (Nicole).  In that, he posted this message: “To my Ride or Die partner Ari!! Never a dull moment, laughing or crying, she was the party, always with a smile! Love ya #ERICOLE”

So, will you miss Ericole? Are you sad to see Greg exit Days on-screen? Share your thoughts via the comment section below … AND what were some of your favorite performances of Greg during his time on DAYS.

WATCH: Ellen DeGeneres Address Toxic Workplace Issues & How She is a ‘Work in Progress’ in Talk Show Season Opener

Today marks the return of daytime’s Ellen DeGeneres Show for its 18th season in syndication.  Ahead of its airing, the show dropped the video of Ellen’s opening monologue where she addresses to the audience at home the allegations that came to light over the summer regarding her, and the toxic work environment behind the scenes of her popular series.

Those allegations prompted an internal investigation by WarnerMedia, which led to the dismissal of several key producers at the talk show.

Previously, Ellen shared that she would address what had happened during the new season, but she did so at the top of its first episode back, and repeated some of the same sentiments she also shared in a letter to her crew and staffers.

DeGeneres expressed  “I know that I’m in a position of privilege and power, and I realize that with that comes responsibility, and I take responsibility for what happens at my show. This is The Ellen DeGeneres Show. I am Ellen DeGeneres.”  She was quick to point out that she is turning the page and that “today, we are starting a new chapter.”

Addressing what has been her off-screen behavior vs. her on-air persona, Ellen said: “The truth is, I am that person that you see on TV. I am also a lot of other things.  Sometimes I get sad. I get mad. I get anxious. I get frustrated. I get impatient. And I am working on all of that. I am a work in progress… I don’t think I’m that good of an actress that I could come out here every day for 17 years and fool you. This is me, and my intention is to always be the best person I can be. And if I’ve ever let someone down, if I’ve ever hurt their feelings, I’m so sorry for that.”  Within the monologue she shares how she became known as the “Be Kind Lady” a moniker that also came back to bite her during the summer.

So, what do you think about what Ellen has to say at the top of the new season of her show? Do you think this is enough of an explanation to the public? Are you ready to watch her new season? Comment below.
