You read my mind, damien. I can tolerate Lilly. But Cane? Ugh.
Love Victoria…loooove Drucilla. But, I don’t think she needs redeeming. Her acting has not waned, don’t you agree?

this will be my ultimatum

getting a chance to appraise her once again.

I’ve always wanted CBS to just move on with her, back in Genoa City she goes

will this ring any bells ? it should… Neil, Devon, and Lily have never been the same.

what’s not to like about fine tuning this show with all they’ve got

I would like to see her back on Y&R. I did not watch when she was on, but did enjoy her on “Diagnosis Murder”. I think the main thing would be backstage drama and making sure she didn’t bring any.
