Victoria Rowell’s "The Rich & The Ruthless" Bows Today On Urban Movie Channel!

Courtesy/UMC

Victoria Rowell (Ex-Drucilla, The Young and the Restless) highly-anticipated series based on her novel “The Rich & The Ruthless” comes to life and bows today as episode one is now available on the Urban Movie Channel.

The series “The Rich & The Ruthless” is a six-episode soap-within-a-soap about the first African-American-run daytime drama.

Rowell plays a just-out-of-rehab actress who wants to return to her old role. Lucky for her, she’s married to the showrunner (Richard Brooks). Unlucky for him, the series is about to lose its soundstages after 2o years to a talk show, and the last thing he needs to deal with is a diva.

Doing anything to keep the show on the air, he moves his production company to Jamaica, which is the backdrop for the series. Rowell, plays the role of Kitty Barringer wanting to be back on top in the world of soaps at all costs, and in her beloved role as “Blue Sylla”!

Daytime Confidential’s Jamey Giddens co-wrote the series along with Rowell. Make sure to subscribe to UMC to view the six-part sudser!

So, will you be checking out all the soapy antics of “The Rich & The Ruthless”?  Comment below.

Same here, Lou. I am one of the few who loves Victoria. I wish she could return to Y&R….her family needs her. But, I know that won’t happen due to the ‘cold’ air between her and CBS. Too bad!!
Dru and Neil….a memorable couple, regardless of all their travails together.

ditto about dru at y n r!
y n r has been so lacklustre i feel it needs a serious shot in the arm!
drucilla / victoria rowell back would be some make some serious gc buzz!
lily and hilarys rivalry had so much potential but crystal s portaryal of a cheated on wife by the sleazy cane has been so subdued i ve lost intrest. Dru needs to come back and fight for her children and husband against cane and hilary as only the great victoria rowell could!

@damien.
Well said….especially the Cane part. Never took to him.
I am glad the writers are ringhting a wrong where Cane is concerned. Billy is no saint….never was; but, I don’t ever remember him doing something so evil and underhanded.
It’s time Cane pay the piper, damien.
Dru could turn this around for the Winters family in one fell swoop.

Good luck, Victoria! I am glad she is putting her energy elsewhere.

No pain to me; at least not anymore than some of the other stars. I need to find the channel. I want her back at Y& R , also, k/kay; plus, Michael Muhney or Engel as Adam .

chris engel back as adam would be amazing!
i liked him and the original heather together.
paul could use some family now too!
i feel the newman crap has been recycled enough already. some shift towards paul and chris or michael and laurens family would be refreshing.

Thanks, damien and Boop, for mentioning the original Adam. His name is actually Chris Engen. I certainly enjoyed him. As I recall (and verified online), the actor left Y&R because he refused to kiss another man (Yani Gellman who played Rafe). I believe he was willing to wear a dress for storyline purposes, but kissing another man was a bridge too far, however… I’ve known that type… 🙂

Then Michael Muhney, willing to kiss another man, took over the role. I definitely enjoyed both Muhney and Engen! And I would welcome either of them back to Y&R with open arms (kissing not mandatory)!

The actress who originally played Heather Stephens was very good. In particular, I liked the interaction between the character and Victor. Victor would give her his typical attitude and this actress was able to give it right back to him.

Engen was good as Adam as well.

I don’t have any interest in watching her show. That being said, it is nice to see an item discussing her where the subject is something other than her trashing of Y&R!!

It’s been a while since I’ve commented here but after this screening I have book choice. AWFUL doesn’t BEGIN to describe what I just grated my teeth through. As VR is credited as writer it stands to reason it started with the first scenes throwing major shade at Y&R and P&G. Up to and including the infamous deliberately spit on me scene. After that it was a complete hot mess. A mumbling lead actress you litetally couldn’t understand. Off the wall and over the top black caricature actresses that ALL acted like that nosey “but I ain’t one to gossip” woman from In Living Color. An old black woman snatched off her wig and got all “ghetto” which really isn’t a THING! and finally Victoria Rowell..still a good actress in some respects but giving out the line she did that thang. She can’t be replaced so hire her back on that shows fictional soap
shouting out to Y&R too no doubt. Overall a complete mess from start to finish. And I thought Tyler Perry was bad. One take-away..the Urban Movie Channel has a lot to offer for 4.99 per month and I intend on keeping it. So there’s that.

Sorry, I will NOT watch this mess of a show.
Victoria has done nothing but cause trouble since she left Y&R, filing law suits over anything she could think of, so I have no interest in watching a show she is attached to.
VR has an ego the size of Texas…there is a reason she can’t get hired on an established show.
Sorry to anyone else attached to this production, but VR is poison to many soap fans!

So excited! Forever Victoria Rowell, she’s a Goddess! We need to get you on OWN.

Doug Davidson Back To The Young and the Restless

Big news Y&R fans, longtime veteran and fan favorite, Doug Davidson is back filming scenes at CBS Daytime’s top-rated soap as Paul Williams.

The news broke when Eric Braeden tweeted a picture of himself with Davidson that simply stated: “He’s Back”

A spokesperson for Y&R did confirm that Davidson (who had been taken off contract by the series a year ago back in January, which caused quite the social media stir) was back on set filming on Friday.  That episode in which Davidson is in will air on March 25th.

Davidson tweeted: “Okay! So, the cat is out of the bag. NONE of any of this would happen without all of your undying loyalty, support and kindness. All of you are the reason “Paul” is back on the canvas. THANK YOU SO MUCH. has been incredible the entire time. A huge thanks to him as well!”

Doug is a Daytime Emmy winner, who started on the daytime drama series back in 1978.  Y&R did receive pushback under Mal Young’s (Ex-EP and head writer) regime for its misuse of long-standing vets.

Braeden also tweeted with the photo: “I want to thank from SONY, JOSH GRIFFITH and TONY MORINA, for turning the ship around!!! Steve made an executive decision a few months ago and we want to thank him for it!”

So, excited to hear that Davidson is back taping at Y&R? Share your thoughts via the comment section below.

Dominic Zamprogna Making A Return To General Hospital

After posting a photo from an empty dressing room, Dominic Zamprogna certainly had General Hospital fans interest piqued!  Turns out, Zamprogna is back shooting at the ABC daytime drama series for what it appears to be a short appearance and reprising his role as Dante Falconeri.

As fans know, Dominic departed GH in 2018, after 9 years in the role.  In the photo he posted on social media, Zamprogna is in one of GH’s temporary dressing rooms for the day.  His original dressing room was re-assigned to Josh Swickard (Chase), when Dom exited the show.

The last time viewers saw Dante was in the Sonny-centric episode; where Dante is the mobster and Sonny is by the book.

In current GH story, the character of Dante has been recently mentioned following his wife, Lulu (Emme Rylan) being stabbed by serial killer, Ryan Chamberlain (Jon Lindstrom).  Dante’s parents, Olivia (Lisa LoCicero) and Sonny (Maurice Benard) also discussed his whereabouts. Dante had gone undercover on a major case after leaving Port Charles.

From all reports, it seems that Dominic is making a short return, but it will be more than just a one-day stint.  So, stay tuned.

So, will Dante return to Lulu’s side? Do you hope Dominic’s return means more down the line? Comment below.
