Someone cast Rowell on a daytime or primetime soap already!

Her acting in these promo clips for her book puts most acting on Daytime to shame! She’s hilarious and dramatic at the same time. Poor Christian Leblanc, he’s hilarious in his dramatic scenes, but for the wrong reasons. CLB can’t compare to Rowell.

It’s really sad that white actresses like Kim Zimmer and Robin Strasser can be so outspoken abt the state of their shows or what they’re unhappy abt, yet still be able to return to them. Strasser had a freaking hotline where she would bash OLTL repeatedly before one of her many diva quitting moments. Yet she’s always back on OLTL no matter how much she trashes them.

While Rowell, who was fighting for equality, gets no support from her costars or the soap media.

It’s funny how there’s all this support from the soap media for the kish actors and how everything is blamed on homophobia, but since it’s a race issue for Rowell, the soap media are not blaming racism or not defending her or not defending her as passionately as the kish brats were defended.

How many openly or known to be gay headwriters have worked in Daytime? Carlivati, Reilly, Marland, Mulcahey, etc. How many racial minority headwriters have worked in Daytime: 1!

Kish is written out, Nuke gets a kiss ban and Otalia doesn’t be affectionate: the whole soap media is up in arms complaining about discrimination. Rowell complains abt the unequal treatment of black actors on Y&R, no racial minority writers on Daytime, AMC’s Erica Kane’s only black male love interest gets written out, no racial minority core families on ATWT, B&B, GH: where’s the soap media screaming discrimination?

Now who could Emmy Abernathy be? It’s quite obvious. LOL!

Anne Heche in Her Final TV Performance to Air on ‘All Rise’

It is hard to believe that now one year later, television fans will see the final performance of Daytime Emmy winner, Anne Heche (ex-Vicky/Marley, Another World).  The talented actress passed away from injuries sustained in a car crash back on August 5th, 2022.

Heche was officially declared ‘brain dead’ on August 12th, when her reps shared that Anne was “peacefully taken off life support.”  Before she passed, Anne taped what would be her final TV acting appearance in her recurring role on the legal drama, All Rise.

The series formerly with CBS and now airing on OWN, will air Heche’s last performance this Saturday, September 30th at 9pm ET/8 pm CT.  On All Rise, Heche plays lawyer Corrine Cuthbert.  Since season 2, Heche has taken on the recurring role. She appeared in six episodes.

In story, Corrine has had a fraught professional relationship with Judge Lola Carmichael played by Simone Missick.  For her final appearance, Heche’s Corrine shows up as part of a trial case.

All Rise dedicated the episode to Heche. As the hour comes to its conclusion, they express: “In Memory of Anne Heche, Our Friend and Wonderful Artist. You Are Missed.”

After this, Heche will star posthumously in the independent movie feature Wildfire: The Legend of the Cherokee Ghost Horse, slated for release in November.

Y&R’s Jess Walton On Why Mamie Irks Jill As Feud Reignites: “It’s Mamie’s Arrogance and How Much She Enjoyed Stepping on Jill’s Toes All These Years”

On recent episodes of The Young and the Restless, viewers learned that Mamie Johnson (Veronica Redd) is back and is actually the new secret investor in Chancellor-Winters.

Mamie told Nate (Sean Dominic) that she is looking forward to watching Jill’s (Jess Walton) head explode when it is finally revealed. Those remarks date back to Jill and Mamie’s longstanding feud and history; when Mamie was the Abbott family housekeeper, and both women had relationships with the late John Abbott (Jerry Douglas).

This current story will feature Jess Walton in an arc that pits her against Veronica Redd, and should delight longtime Y&R viewers who have loved the often catty remarks and fireworks between Jill and Mamie.

In the latest issue of Soap Opera Digest on newsstands now, Jess Walton spoke about why Jill has such an issue with Mamie. The Daytime Emmy-winning star expressed, “It’s Mamie’s arrogance and how much she enjoyed stepping on Jill’s toes all of these years. Mamie had always been judging Jill who in turn just hated the influence Mamie had with John.  When Jill was married to him, she never felt welcome in her own home.”

Walton went on to say on this new storyline development: “As far as she (Jill) is concerned that disrespect is continuing because Mamie bought into Chancellor-Winters without letting Jill know.”

Y&R fans can look forward to more of Jess on-screen in the next few months as she informed SOD, she will be taping scenes in October and November on the top-rated soap opera.

When all is said and done, Jess shared that her Genoa City alter-ego is very clear on just how Mamie gets under her skin: “Mamie was always so damn sanctimonious and hollier-than-thou and that always pissed Jill off. Mamie still knows how to really push Jill’s buttons.”

Check out the flashback scenes below featuring Veronica Redd and Jess Walton that were part of this week’s episodes of Y&R; where Mamie is revealed to be a now major investor in Chancellor-Winters.

Now let us know, are you looking forward to seeing the sparks fly between Jill and Mamie in the coming weeks? Share your thoughts in the comment section.
