Every role on Y and R is seldom long term occurring. What happened to Gloria’s return? Lasted about a day and a half… Her big mystery? And now Kevin, Cloie, the kids and Ester are moving out of C. Manor… maybe they can rent a room at the hotel, seems everyone is living there now. And speaking of Baldwin’s looks like “Michael” has been reduced to the less than five line status.

Thought it was kind of funny that once Abby and Chance decided they wanted to live at the Chancellor mansion, Kevin, Chloe , etc. were out of there quicker than you could say scat! Maybe now we’ll find out what old Gloria has been up to? I guess they have Michael and Lauren on the back burner for awhile unless he has to prosecute someone.

Why? We already don’t have stories for a number of characters. Lola has been relegated to best friend status and Jack hasn’t had a date since he last partied back in 1999. And for some inexplicable reason, they are getting rid of Theo. Theo is a classic, soap, bad boy meets antihero and he manages to make the somnolent Abbotts interesting. We don’t need new characters, we need to give the talented, already hired, characters interesting stories.

“Theo makes the Abbotts interesting”….I completely agree. He was the only spark there. The rest of them are sooo boring. I can’t believe how they had the total scum bag Kyle talking down to Theo!!! I almost chokes! Kyle married Summer to get her to give Lola a kidney? Then he dumps Summer right after she provided the kidney, then Kyle dumps Lola. Theo hasn’t done anything even close to that level!!! Jack doesn’t give Theo a part of the necklace. He is so disgusting. Replulsive and looks greedy. Theo should have been given a respective cut of the inheritance… Read more »

Oscar and Grammy winner, Irene Cara has passed away.  The singer/songwriter/actress, known for her memorable vocal performances to the theme of the hit movie, Fame, and singing the title track to another 80’s blockbuster, Flashdance, apparently died in her Florida home yesterday. The cause of death is not yet known.

According to her publicist, Judith Moore on Twitter, the rep shared: “This is the absolute worst part of being a publicist. I can’t believe I’ve had to write this, let alone release the news.  It is with profound sadness that on behalf of her family I announce the passing of Irene Cara. The Academy Award-winning actress, singer, songwriter and producer passed away in her Florida home.  Irene’s family has requested privacy as they process their grief. She was a beautifully gifted soul whose legacy will live forever through her music and films.”

A little known fact is that Irene’s first acting gig was on the daytime drama, Love of Life from 1970-1971 in the role of Daisy Allen.   She later appeared in TV roles on: What’s Happening, Kojak, Roots: The Next Generations, and in the film, Sparkle and many more.

Later, Cara first rose to prominence when she was cast in the 1980’s musical film Fame, where she sang the title track and starred in as Coco Hernandez.  Her vocal performance in Fame earned her two Grammy Award nominations for Best New Artist and Best Pop Vocal Performance Female in 1981.

Two years later, Cara not only picked up two Grammy Awards for her performance, but also an Oscar for  co-writing, “Flashdance… What a Feeling” from another 80’s pop culture smash, Flashdance.  At the Grammys in 1984, Irene won for Best Pop Vocal Performance, Female, and Best Album of an Original Score Written for a Motion Picture or a Television Special.  She took home the Oscar for Best Original Song at the Academy Awards in 1983.

Cara’s rep added, that at the time of Irene’s death they were working on new projects: “Working on amazing projects that would have made her  and her fans incredibly happy. Her manager and I will finish them. She’d want that.”
