Y&R alum, Victoria Rowell (Ex-Drucilla) is on her way back to CBS and on primetime.  In casting news, Victoria is joining the cast of the new medical drama, Good Sam.

According to Deadline, Rowell is set to play Tina Kingsley, a high-powered, sophisticated, chairwoman of the hospital board with the kind of power that does not assert itself. Alienated from her son Malcolm (Edwin Hodge), Tina possesses a strong will to take what’s in her sights, even when it means navigating complicated relationships from her past.

Good Sam centers on Sam (Sophia Bush), a talented yet stifled heart surgeon who embraces her leadership role after her renowned and pompous boss Dr. Rob “Griff” Griffith falls into a coma.

Recently, Rowell has been appearing on her series, The Rich and the Ruthless on BET+ and she was also known for her work on the CBS drama, Diagnosis Murder.

Good Sam air Wednesday nights at 10 p.m. ET/PT.

So, will you be watching Victoria on her new role on Good Sam? Comment below.

Yes l will be watching. Glad to see her back on CBS.

Victoria Rowell deserves better. GOOD SAM is a terrible show with a perverse premise: a twisted, megalomanical surgeon is pathologically jealous of his daughter and deliberately undermines her at every turn. The supporting characters are weak and the normally dependable Sophia Bush has little to work with. Instead of dragging in another character (a sure sign that a show is in trouble), they need to reconceive the whole concept. First, drop the father (charmless Jason Isaacs) and concentrate on the science and the challenges a woman would face in a sexist, patriarchal environment such as a hospital. Or…call it a loss and bring Ms. Bush back to CHICAGO PD, where she’s been sorely missed.

Soap hound, I agree 100%! I’m not sure I’m even going to continue watching. I keep hoping it will get better, but I’m almost ready to give up.
Not sure that Rowell will bring anything to the table. It would take someone much better that her.

Good to hear your perspective on this show as I have not seen it. However, Sophia Bush has certainly not been missed by me on Chicago PD. Did not like her which is the reason I’ve had no interest in checking out Good Sam – apart from having 3 medical shows on my viewing list!!!

Oh JenW, CHICAGO PD used to be my favorite show. But I gave it up after last season because every episode seemed the same: a drug dealer (of rotating ethnicity) wreaks havoc on Hank’s turf, the group mobilizes, Hank catches hell for bending the rules, and all ends well. Kim likes Ruzak, then doesn’t. Jay likes the other girl, who’s got more baggage than United Airlines. I just got bored!

Jason Isaacs is the ONLY reason I watch Good Sam. I find Sophia Bush annoying on the best of days.

I watched one time and agree with you. That father was a real jerk, enough for me. I do miss her on Chicago P.D

This is wonderful news.


Now that’s something to tune into because I just love her.

Unfortunately the winters clan is completely watered down with Lily and Devon at the helm. Besides Crystel on a good day, Bryton is a complete snooze as Devon . With Kristoffs sad passing, Malcolm , Olivia and Mamie never mentioned , Drucilla s return would be out of place. Otherwise if Victoria is back on good terms with Cbs it would be great for her to segway back to y n r for a visit.
Y n r has had sooooo many gorgeous and talented black actors like those that portrayed Anna, Devons sister, the new Nate with Elena and Imani who continually get sidelined, Leslie and Tyler Michaelson the brother and sister that mixed it up with Neil and Lily etc…why the show focuses on Lily and Devon who are very subpar i’ll never understand!

Maybe Victoria Rowell come back to Y&R as Drucilla’s Ghost or a figment of Devon and/or Lily’s imagination to give them advice.

So glad to see Victoria back on TV. Such a gifted actress.

Kim Zimmer Reveals Breast Cancer Diagnosis

Last night the stars of daytime came together for a one-of-a-kind three hour-plus virtual event Daytime Stands Up – A Benefit For Stand Up To Cancer – We All Have a Story.

Towards the top of the show Daytime Stands Up co-hosts Michael Fairman and Alan Locher welcomed former Guiding Light stars, Kim Zimmer (ex-Reva) and Tina Sloan (ex-Lillian).

During their segment both actresses initially discussed playing breast cancer storylines for their character on the beloved soap opera and the impact it made on them and the viewers at the time. However, later in the conversation, Kim made a heartfelt admission that she is currently battling breast cancer in real life.


Kim expressed, “I was diagnosed with breast cancer on November 6th. And if it wasn’t for a wonderful circle of friends that I have, and not to mention my husband AC Weary, and my family Rachel Max and Jake, who call me every day, I would’ve fallen apart. But because of my circle that I had, including fabulous doctors, early detection (was possible).

“I did have a mastectomy and I have my last infusion on Tuesday,” Zimmer added. “I would say to anyone that may get a diagnosis like I got. It’s so important that you find a support system.”

On how she is coping with her battle, Kim shared, “I’m a tough broad. But again, if I didn’t have the friends that I have, the support system that I have, the fabulous doctors, a fantastic plastic surgeon, I would’ve fallen apart. And I’m here to say early detection. Early detection. Early detection. Get your mammograms, get them soon.”

Earlier in the segment, when Kim talked about Reva’s breast cancer battle and how her character would not tell the love her life, Josh Lewis (Robert Newman), which maddened fans of the GL. Kim related, “The fans were like, ‘Why are you not telling Josh?” It made for great drama, though, It bonded Billy and Reva again in life.  We brought in the wonderful character of Colin, who was Reva’s by the book, cancer Doctor.”

“There were a lot of wonderful things that came out of the storyline,” recalled the four-time Daytime Emmy-winner. “I actually went back and watched the (standalone show) that they did on Reva finding out she had breast cancer. And I was like, ‘Wow. I can’t imagine not fighting that story today. But it ended up being written beautifully.”
