Photo: HutchinsPhoto.com

It’s a big day when you get your face in the opening title sequence of the iconic The Young and the Restless – those turns, those stares, all signature style of the top-rated soap.

For Loren Lott, she is now appearing in the opening sequence for the first time since she arrived on the scene in Genoa City as Devon’s (Bryton James) sister, Ana Hamilton.

When Lott saw herself in the opening, she posted it on her Instagram account with this reaction: “Omg ahhhh!!! My first TV intro. Not really sure how I ended up in the intro. I was on the show for 9 months. And I look delicious. Like a really good cookie in all that cream! With a splash a caramel (hi Bryton lol)! That’s some bomb ice cream lol Not gonna lie I screamed. I may have peed a little. Eeep!! Lol this was a very pleasant surprise! Thanx @youngandrestlesscbs @cbsdaytime@sonytvofficial !! #blessed”

Then if you watch the video of her reaction below, Lott does a hilarious turn as many have seen You Tubers do with their own videos – complete with quick cuts and oh-so-funny moments.  Check it out.

Now let us know, are you enjoying Loren on Y&R? What do you hope happens for Ana? Comment below.

Loren is not only gorgeous; her character, Ana, is credible—far cry from Tessa—
I hope she stays single for a while—–yet, knowing the soapworld’s mechanics, she will be paired with someone….let’s hope it’s not unpalatable, geeky Nate!!

Forgive me for taking this opportunity; however, I must say it before I bust!! What the hey is going on with these writers?!?!?! Everytime I see scenes with Tracy and Cane, I want to regurgitate—oh, wait–puke…I want to get down to the nitty-gritty and tell it like it is—–p u k e!! Where are the PTB headed with this? A ‘get-together’ between the two? Holy moly …please soare me. I have had enough of Cane. This is one character who is not needed—-Ergo, ye gods are trying extra hard to fit him into any fissure–a mouse hole is more like it. Cane is irrelevant. Always was, always will be.
It is such a silly, inconsequential storyline— giggly schoolgirl making googly eyes at defective, grosses-me-out idiot.
Tracy deserves better-C’mon–stop the nonsense before I SCREAM!!

CELIA. SPOT ON. That really bad horrific noir novel. It’s like a bad take on GL’s Nola stories back in the 80’s. Mal Young took the show to a better place but then turned apparently into Dr. EVIL. Writing whatever and for whoever he felt was worthy. Pinky finger mic and all LOL. This Tracy/Cain story is bonkers and stomach churning. It NEVER would happen. That dumb detective novel is madness in its self. And they devoted many scenes to it. SMH. I’d been off this show for a good while, over a year actually, and this is what I DVR’d? Sad state. But I miss my American soaps and I’m trying really really hard to get back interested. B&B is a mess. One story for 16+ characters,and two Muppet brothers with a weird father. Bill is weird and pervy. Bottom line. Days is just wacky for the sake of being wacky. Even James E. Reilly would be bonk Carlivitiron upside his head with a script. And GH is trying. Trying way too hard. There’s absolutely no reason the remaining soaps shouldn’t be experiencing a renaissance. The networks don’t want them to. So they won’t. They’ll continue to be sub standard. I’m done with my rant. I’m going to raise a glass to dearly departed Calvin Boudreaux. CHIN CHIN. LOL.

Right back “atcha”, dev—–to repeat yourbown words; YOUR comment is spot on!!
Yeah, right!!….Cane a sleuth of yore? No Lawrence Olivier, or Michael Cain he!!
Yuck!!!!!!
And these writers are a poor imitation of Anthony Shaffer. Seriously??
It breaks my heart to see the writing on the wall ( pardon the double entendre) as to where the rest my loving soaps are headed…..No rhyme or reason to this storyline.
LOL…quelle dommage, dev…poor, poor Calvin…CHIN CHIN and SALUT, indeed.❤️

Great! I can’t stand the fact that the Y&R credits for the most part show only the older generation. Where’s Kyle? I don’t think Adam has even appeared. How about Rey and Lola? Lets get some younger folks and diversity on there. We all know Victor, Jack and Nikki are the lead characters… we don’t need to see them every day!

Hi, Lola (Sasha Calle) was a part of the opening credits today and I am sure they have images of Rey & Kyle as well and Michelle Stafford as Phyllis.

That’s great they added Lola! But I’ve never seen Kyle. And Michelle Stafford — though she looks fab — is past 50, so not exactly a youngster anymore, lol. I guess change will come slowly!

She looks really pretty. I’m just not loving the character or her story.

She’s gorgeous and looks amazing in the intro. But I cannot understand why Michael Mealor (Kyle) is not in the intro yet. He’s been on the show quite some time now and is part of one of the primary families.

Call For Boycott and Pushback Continue For Hallmark Channel After Pulling Ad Of Lesbian Brides Kissing

We all know that many former soap stars are currently appearing, or have appeared in Hallmark Channel movies, and Christmastime is the cable outlets busiest season where they roll about several romance-themed offerings.

This weekend alone, DAYS alum, Jen Lilley (Ex-Theresa) and GH alum, Matt Cohen (Ex-Griffin) are in two of them  However, on Saturday the channel became under fire for removing an ad from Zola.com which featured two brides kissing in a same-sex wedding moment.

Zola.com is a wedding planning and registry company, and in this version of their ads, it showed two women exchanging wedding vows and then sharing a kiss celebrating their union.  The ad was one of six that had been running on the channel since December 2nd.

Enter conservative group  One Million Moms. The group launched a petition to get the network to pull the commercial along with any other LGBTQ related-content.  According to the group, they had 27,000 people sign it.   On their website, the ‘Moms” group posted: “Parents need to know they could now come face-to-face with the LGBT agenda when they sit down to watch the Hallmark Channel.”

Next, Hallmark Channel caved  to the conservative group and removed the ad saying it was in violation of their policy.  They added to The Hollywood Reporter: “The debate surrounding these commercials on all sides was distracting from the purpose of our network, which is to provide entertainment value.”  Zola countered with their own statement, pulling any and all advertising from the network: “All kisses, couples and marriages are equal celebrations of love and we will no longer be advertising on Hallmark.”

A Hallmark spokesperson added: “The decision not to air overt public displays of affection in our sponsored advertisement, regardless of the participants, is in line with our current policy, which includes not featuring political advertisements, offensive language, R-rated movie content and many other categories.”

GLAAD fired back with a statement from CEO Sarah Kate Ellis: “The Hallmark Channel’s decision to remove LGBTQ families in such a blatant way is discriminatory and especially hypocritical coming from a network that claims to present family programming and also recently stated they are ‘open’ to LGBTQ holiday movies. As so many other TV and cable networks showcase, LGBTQ families are part of family programming. Advertisers on The Hallmark Channel should see this news and question whether they want to be associated with a network that chooses to bow to fringe anti-LGBTQ activist groups, which solely exist to harm LGBTQ families.”

In some additional tweets on social media which find many calling for a complete boycott of the channel, The Ellen DeGeneres Show account tweeted: Isn’t it almost 2020? @hallmarkchannel @billabbottHC … what are you thinking? Please explain. We’re all ears.”

General Hospital’s Nancy Lee Grahn (Alexis) tweeted: “Sweet Jesus!…who ironically I hear does not get the Hallmark Channel due to its content, but instead binge watches @BritishBakeOff due to the joyful inclusivity… and of course the cake.”
