Earlier today on CBS’ The Young and the Restless, the residents of Genoa City gathered at the GCAC for the big New Year’s Eve bash! And when the clock struck twelve, the camera panned to various duos sharing a peck, hug, a kiss, a passionate wet one, and more!

In the final moments of the episode, Courtney ( Kelli Goss) and Noah (Robert Adamson) kissed and then the cop stared at her hand!  Mariah (Camryn Grimes) and Kevin (Greg Rikaart) succumbed to doing shots then sharing a smooch, Harding (Chris McKenna) surprised Abby (Melissa Ordway) and planted one on her lips, and she liked it!

Paul (Doug Davidson) and Christine (Lauralee Bell) shared a moment of reconnection, but Paul was busy checking on Nikki (Melody Thomas Scott) who was hugging hubby Victor (Eric Braeden)! Austin (Matt Atkinson) and Summer (Hunter King) kissed, Devon (Bryton James) and Gwen kissed  … as Neil (Kristoff St. John) rejoiced with a miserable looking Hilary (Mishael Morgan).   And then there was Jack (Peter Bergman) and Phyllis (Gina Tognoni) who shared a promise for the Nee Year and the kiss  … while an unsettled look came from Kelly (Cady McClain) who spotted the lip-smack!

Elsewhere, Stich (Sean Carrigan) and Victoria (Amelia Heinle) were home making out on the couch naked, while Billy (Burgess Jenkins) and Chelsea (Melissa Claire Egan) said that nothing can stand in the way of their happiness, only Adam (Justin Hartley)was lurking while at the NYE party.

So, with the prospect of these 0n-screen couples on Y&R in 2015, which do you want to end up together the most?  Which smooch did you like best on today’s New Year’s Eve show?  Watch the clip after the jump and then comment below!

Really like Kevin and Mariah.

Me too! Abby was acting like a vapid mean girl and Mariah just let her have it, not with her fists, but with her words.
Who isn’t rooting for Mariah at this point?
Summer and Abby are shallow, vacuous, mean girls–clearly they have the Newman gene. Mariah is worth the lot of them. More please–today’s writing was good and solid.
Please do not let Brian Fronz put an end to the good things which are happening.

I hope Sharon and Adam get back together. I really can’t forgive Nick anymore all the games and hurt he has done to Sharon. The writers seem to forget how much love Adam had for Sharon 🙂 It was so wonderful how they had each others backs

Most definitely agree, jaybird/Robert. There’s something about Mariah….and Kevin…LOL. Yes, these two have the kind of chemistry I have not seen in a long time on Y&R. I just don’t like this Abby. Period. She is as interesting as dish water….please, do something with her hair…give her a style that is up with the times, not Donna Reed……and that cop? Even worse. No one piques my interest at this point except Mariah and Kevin……And, possibly ; hopefully a start of something between ‘Gabriel’ and Chelsea. This Billy needs to go. Yuck. I love Ashley….such a beautiful and talented actress…..but, with… Read more »

Definitely loved Kevin and Mariah the most.
Don’t really care about Jack and Phyllis, although
that look on Kelly’s face as she watched their kiss
was pretty creepy.
What was up with Noah announcing so rudely
that he never wants to get married?? Courtney,
after that, looked so hurt and so not in the mood
for a New Year’s kiss from him.
Anyway, here is to hoping for a Kevin/Mariah hookup in 2015!

harry
Guest
harry

Nanci, I kind of liked Noah announcing that because it’s an example of a character driven plot line.
Noah has watched his parents torment each other since he was a baby. It’s no wonder he thinks marriage is a horrible idea after the example his parents set.

Nanci
Guest
Nanci

Hi Harry,
But for Noah to say it like that, and on romantic New Year’s Eve,
threw me (and Courtney!) for a loop. Noah is normally so kind and
gentle, and all that. But he had a few drinks in him I guess, and
true about his role models for marriage, ugh.
Be Interesting to see what happens now with Noah and Courtney.
If they get enough screen time to even explore it, that is!

harry
Guest
harry

Sorry Nancy. I missed the scene you mentioned and only knew of the details based on your description.
You’re right–Noah is the sweet diplomat who always errors on the side of kindness. I guess his folks’ marriage from hell has given him a case of shell shock.

harry
Guest

Kelly has turned into a creepy, psycho stalker. I guess that is the only way she can fight Phyllis. If you can’t beat em, join em!

Nanci
Guest
Nanci

I know! Gosh, I didn’t want Kelly to go down
the loony path, but instead just go forward with
a guy worth her time. Hopefully her weirdness was
just the drinks in her, much like Noah that night!

“…that look on Kelly’s face as she watched their kiss was pretty creepy ”

some thing tells me this is the beginning of the end of Cady McClain’ Kelly

she had me going

Harry
Guest
Harry

I think you might be right, Patrick. Which makes me kind of sad because I was happy for Cady when she landed the job.
Here’s my guess–I never bought that Adam hit Chelsey. If you watch that scene it just doesn’t seem plausible. There was a reason he didn’t know he hit her until days later–because he didn’t.
I think Kelly did it and the guilt is pushing her over the edge.
It can’t just be because the love of Jack’s life awoke from her coma and he had to go back to her.

k/kay
Guest
k/kay

Everybody who watches this soap knows that Cady McClain/Kelly was going to be the sacrificial lamb in this Phyllis & Jack stroryline before she is written out I hope she gets her pound of flesh concerning Phyllis & Jack. As for Neill to even be remotely friendly with Phyllis is stupid since Phyllis & Dru hated each others guts. And my New Years wish for this show is for Dylan to become Sharon’s best friend the actor Steve Burton actually shows he has blood in his veins when he acts opposite her he is comfortable and relaxed. Besides he is… Read more »

Looks like their setting up Kelly as a stalker who is obsessed with Jack and out to ruin RED. I like it. Knock RED down a few notches and have Kelly go bonkers!

Loved Kevin and Mariah’s kiss and Hardings walk off kiss with Abby was great.

I LOVE Jack and Adam’s scenes. Justin Hartley is knocking it out of the park!

I hadn’t noticed Kelly’s “Kim Like” butt but please no Kayne!!!! Speaking of Kelly though, I am glad she got rid of those straight bangs.

CeeCee

Has there ever been a woman who has not locked horns with Phyllis? There must always be an antagonist ready to take the plunge with her. But, somehow, Phyllis always comes out on top. As for Kelly, yes, she does look a bit more sophisticated without bangs. Yet, I find it hard to get Dixie Cooney (sp.) out of my head….ugh. Yeah, I am waiting for the cat fight with trepidation…LOL. What else is new? Cricket, Sharon, Gina, not sure about Diane, now Kelly etc…… and, the beat goes on. THEY ARE SIMPLY TOO OLD TO ACT LIKE SCHOOLGIRLS .… Read more »

CeeCee, I cannot locate your comment in which you speak of Ashley constantly being couple with men young enough to be her son. I have no issue with May December romances but what irks me is that it is never mentioned that Ashley is at least twenty years older than both Joe and Stitch. And she looks kind of ridiculous competing with her daughter and former step daughter for the affection of these men.
I think there is shortage of men in Ashley’s age bracket. The only man who is about her age is her brother Jack

This show is SO good right now!!! The classy New Year’s Eve hearkened back to the glory days when soaps had a budget and production values! The writing is back to being sophisticated and classic. Abby and this cop have off the charts chemistry, it would be a shame for them not to capitalize on it as this Abby hasnt really clicked with any of her previous leading men. Kevin and Mariah rock! The Phyllis/Kelly/Jack triangle is what soaps are made of. I could do without the plastic surgery of Adam, that is a bit too GH for me, but… Read more »

But yes, Patrick, I do agree.
Aden, love your post. I was a huge Michael Muhney fan and yes, I did not feel Adam should be recast. I have to give it up to casting and to the actor–together they have hit a home run.
I am also turning into a Phyllis fan. Now it’s my turn to invoke the wrath of the torch carrying fans—I never liked Michelle’s scene chewing Phyllis. I love Gina’s Phyllis. I find myself rooting for her.

Yes to a Mariah and Kevin involvement— couples that start off as good friends always have more entertainment value that those couples that get hot and heavy from day one. No to Harding and Abby– she has already done the spoiled rich girl hooking up with average joe blue collar guy and it didn’t work. I rather see Abby with Stitch long term, and Vicky back with Billy. As for a Kelly and Phyllis feud a brewing– I get it is entertainment, but it really goes against who Kelly is as person. It is like a mouse going against a… Read more »

Exhibit A of how absurd it looks when older characters are written the same as they were in the 80’s and 90’s…Bobbie and Lucy on GH. After the glorious, game changing writing of Claire Labine, which allowed all the characters to bond and grow and man ture…along comes Ron Carlivati who completely dismantled all that and now has Bobbie and Lucy, women in their 60’s, rolling around on a bed fighting over Scott Baldwin. How absurd and degrading. These women should be more.concerned about breaking a hip, or that one of their altered body parts might pop and the silicone… Read more »

Hi Cee Cee..
the whole of Y&R is depressing / blah ..
Nobody has a good time, never a laugh, nothing exciting, and its’ star couple Dylan and Avery are a snore..
Dylan has zero of a personality, he’s much like wallpaper just their….
Y&R no longer holds any excitement for me (new Billy is horrible and new Phyllis is overkill as a bitch)

Your right, younger isnt always better because in the end, it almost always matters. Case in point, Larry King. His wife is a lot younger and beautiful. Larry has nine toes in the grave! Its disturbing to even see them together. She cheated and then went back to him.

I had only one thing to say when Harding kissed Abby. “It’s about time!” I have wondered when the writers were going to finally have someone with a bigger attitude on them go after that brat, and he really shut her up!

All My Children and Guiding Light Vet, Gil Rogers Passes Away

Gil Rogers, who played one of the all-time most dastardly villains in soaps on All My Children and was the on-screen father to the one and only Reva Shayne (Kim Zimmer) on Guiding Light, has died at age 87.

News came via his daughter, Amanda Rogers on her Facebook page, relating that Gil passed away on March 2nd.

The actor had played Tad (Michael E. Knight) and Jenny’s (Kim Delaney) father, Ray Gardner on All My Children from 1977-1978 making multiple appearance though 2001, then later as Hawk Shayne on Guiding Light from 1985-1992 making multiple appearance through 2009.

Gil also appeared on Another World, Search for Tomorrow and The Doctors.

In her post, Amanda wrote: “Gil Rogers died this morning. As you all know, my dad was awesome. He was my best friend, confidant, mentor and just an awesome dad. He came to pick me and  Charlotte Whitaker Zdanowski up at clubs at 2AM in our teens to keep us safe, and drank bourbon with me every day since moving out here 2 years ago. He was welcoming and kind, funny and gregarious, a shameless flirt and a fierce protector. He loved his dinners with grandkids and endured animated movies and discussions about pokemon. And I miss him so terribly already. He died in his sleep, without pain or fear. I am so grateful to have had such a great father and to have spent these past 2 years with him every day.”

Check out this vintage scene below from All My Children where Ray played by Rogers blows up the Martin house.

Now share your remembrances of Gil’s performances and along with condolences for his family in the comment section.

Chris Harrison In First Interview Since ‘Bachelor’ Controversy Says He Wants To Be Back as Host; But GMA’s Michael Strahan Says Apology was a “Surface Response”

Thursday’s Good Morning America featured the highly-publicized first interview with ‘Bachelor’ franchise host and executive producer, Chris Harrison, since he stepped away from the show following his controversial remarks on current Bachelor contestant Rachel Kirkconnell, amid the airing of a season that has seen the first-ever Black male lead of the reality series, Matt James.

Speaking with GMA co-host, Michael Strahan, Harrison spoke of remarks he made during his interview with ex-Bachelorette Rachel Lindsay on Extra that sparked the firestorm.

Harrison admitted the words he spoke to Lindsey were “in a manner that perpetuates racism,” adding “I am an imperfect man I made a mistake and I own that. I believe that mistake doesn’t reflect who I am or what I stand for.”

 

The incident began when photos surfaced on social media of Kirkconnell at an Old South-themed party that she attended back in 2018, along with allegations she “liked” many Instagram posts that were racist in nature, and what many viewed as Harrison coming to her defense in this time of what he then called “cancel culture”.

On GMA, Chris expressed: “Antebellum parties are not OK,  Past, present, future, knowing what that represents is unacceptable.”

He also apologized to Lindsay, who had to shut down her Instagram account because of viral vitriol being sent her way over the incident with Harrison, adding this message to the public, “Anyone who is throwing hate towards Rachel Lindsay, please stop. It’s unacceptable.”

Photo: ABC

As to how he is trying to make amends, Harrison shared: “I made a mistake and I own that, Racism, oppression, these are big dynamic problems and they take serious work. I am committed to that work.”  The longtime Bachelor host then announced he is working with race educator Dr. Eric Dyson who has taught him about the idea of “counsel, not cancel”.

Chris says he plans to be back hosting the reality-dating series, expressing:  “I plan to be back. I want to be back.  This interview is not the finish line. There is much more work to be done.”

Following the exclusive, Michael Strahan described his conversation with Chris Harrison stating: “His apology is his apology, but it felt like it got nothing more than a surface response on any of this. Obviously, he is the man who wants to clearly stay on the show, but only time will tell if there is any meaning behind his words.”

So, what do you think of Chris Harrison’s responses during his first interview since the controversy? Should he return to hosting The Bachelor franchise? Comment below. But first check out his GMA exclusive.

GH’s Wes Ramsey Makes Statement on Criticism, Social Media, and Professionalism

General Hospital’s Wes Ramsey, who portrays polarizing character, Peter August on the ABC daytime drama series, responded to a recent take on his role from cast mate, Tristan Rogers (Scorpio) when a video made its way through social media.

The video was from a Cameo appearance, where Rogers offered an assessment of the Peter August storyline and expressed that while he knows Ramsey is a strong actor, he felt he was “wrong for the character” being that Peter was the son of the evil Faison played by Anders Hove.

Rogers also came to the defense of Ramsey and shared: “Don’t be too hard on Wes Ramsey. He’s got himself into a horrible storyline, and the storyline is the fault of the show. What they’ve literally done is they’ve painted themselves into a corner, and they don’t know how to get out of it.”

Currently, Peter’s story is front and center on GH with his wedding to Maxie (Kirsten Storms), and the fallout from all of the character’s dirty deeds.

Now Ramsey took to his Instagram account to address what transpired and his thoughts on the perils of social media, professionalism and acting, expressing: “Actors are storytellers, shapeshifters, chameleons. We’re also in the business of cultivating trust bc that’s how the best work is brought to life. We have to trust our imaginations, our instincts. We have to trust our fellow actors, because without them, there’s no scene to play. In the collaborative efforts of bringing any show to life, we also have to trust our directors each day to steer the arch of our story (like a conductor with a symphony) & trust our writers who are tasked with composing the symphonies we play out. I came up in a world of classical theater, where trusting the play, text, story is essential to the tightrope balancing act of making magic.  You will never hear me critique (on any public platform) the people responsible for the creative opportunities I enjoy each day. Without the trust of my writers, directors, producers & fellow actors, it would be impossible to live out my dreams. My job (& my only job) is to bring fearlessness, playfulness & passionate conviction to what has been created for me. My aim is to stretch myself (beyond the limits of where I think my boundaries may lye) each time I’m entrusted with material that allows those boundaries to be tested.

 

Every actor must believe they are the right person for their part or they will never achieve their potential, let alone surpass it. I was raised a gentleman & have two wonderful parents to thank for that, however, my polite personality (while rendering me easy to get along with on set) should have little bearing on my caliber of performance nor my castability as a professional.  I am leery of the pitfalls of social media & believe there are advantages to maintaining some mystery (even as a public figure) but I will always defend & protect what I hold dear (my job & my career) when they are publicly challenged, especially by those closest to me, whom I love & respect. Please know I bear no ill will. As a society, we are all still learning the full ramifications of living in an internet dominated culture. To all my many fans out there who offer encouragement & support, I hear you & am grateful for you. I’m having a blast… 🙂. Onward we go.”
