Let me say first, I am beginning to enjoy Rey and Lola. But,is it really necessary to bring his wife on now? We barely know anything about Rey and his story with Sharon is just beginning. So, another newcomer is introduced? Before i am slammed, I like newbies and i know they are necessary for the continuation of a show. But, not at rapid fire and again, not at the expense of established characters.

They are much cheaper than a character that has been on scene for 41 years. No offence to Doug D. but the budget is driving these exits.

I think the idea to introduce Ray’s wife now could possibly be due to Abby and others interest in Ray’s background, and the fued with his brother Arturo.Methinks something happened with this woman and the two brothers.Maybe she was with Arturo first and Rey interferred, or Arturo came between Rey and his wife.I remember Rey asking Arturo if he’d told Abby what he’d done. I like both these men,and hate to find out,one is really a dog!

Noemi Gonzalez/Mia is very pretty and so far it’s hard to picture her as Rey’s wife..
Looking forward to the New stories.
I am a fan of the Rosales family, they are new and refreshing.
It didn’t mention how long ‘Mia’ will be with Y&R..
Is she a short stint or long time?

Enough already. Slow down the build up until we leave all of them!

Enough with the newbies, Mal Young needs to be fired, send the sob back to the UK. He is killing Y&R. I do like Lola, she is my favorite new character. Get rid of Nate and the boring Tessa. Bring back Nina Webster and Sheila Carter. Amen. You

They are determined to shove Rey, etc. down our throats. NO. THANK. YOU. I am not interested in Rey, Arturo, Lolo, their background, sibling rivalry, or exes. I’ll be tuning out after Eileen’s exit.

Looks like we got a Telenova going on here! Hopefully she can give Arturo and Rey acting lessons!

One of the best writers in the industry Douglas Marland always said be slow introducing new characters so the audience can care about them don’t make characters that people love and have been on the show a long time do stupid stuff that’s out of character. I am shocked that MY has been given free reign but I believe the Bells sold their rights. Doug was on recurring since Jan I think he got kicked to the curb because of social media I could have written for him I think he got a raw deal

Let’s just call this what it is: Y&R is no longer a predominantly rich, WHITE person show, and many people can’t handle it. There is no way that Paul Williams, Cristine, Nina, or Sheila (for the 800th time) were EVER more interesting than the new characters. NEVER. The reactions are more offensive than the show. OK. let’s see Billy and Syphilis MORE instead; that’s really an improvement. Let’s see Grandpa Mumbles cross his arms as a substitute for acting and watch him yell at Nikki and Jack MORE. GMAFB.

I love this comment. If soaps have any chance of surviving (which seems unlikely) they have to feature more than rich, white people. Yes, a lot of new characters are being introduced quickly — but Y&R is pretty far behind in the diversity game so it has a lot of ground to make up.

I love Mia in TY&TR. I don’t care what the nationality of the actor is as long as they can act. I don’t think Arturo or Tessa can act or bring anything to the show. Phyllis can act but please give her a better storyline. I don’t like her BULLY storyline.

I COMPLETELY AGREE! Phyllis is such a billy that is never made accountable for her actions. Tessa is boring and Mia is an embarrassment to all latinas.

Mia Rosales needs to be fired. She is a terrible actress.

Emmy Winner and Noted Soap Opera Head Writer; Hogan Sheffer Passes Away At 61

Over the last several hours, reports have broke that one of daytime’s most notable scribes has died.  Hogan Sheffer, who was head writer at As the World Turns, Days of our Lives and The Young and the Restless has passed away at the age of 61.

Soap Hub, first reported the news via multiple sources, however, many writers who worked with Hogan during his tenure on the soaps have taken to social media to share their condolences and their grief and remembrances.

Sheffer’s appearance on the soap scene was unexpected, especially in a genre where it is often rare for new blood to take the reins at the head writer position.  Proctor & Gamble had decided to bring in Hogan after his work as the Director of Screenplay Development for DreamWorks, not because of his writing credits for a previous network soap.  He was given trial deal as a breakdown writer for the CBS soap and 10-weeks in became the beloved town of Oakdale’s new head writer.

Hogan and his then writing team were able to turn the classic, As the World Turns around.  The show went up in the ratings and during his time with the series ‘World Turn’s’ won two Daytime Emmys for Outstanding Drama Series, and he and the writing team picked up four Emmy victories all through 2000-2004.

Next, Sheffer landed in Salem as head writer of Days of our Lives along with Meg Kelly from 2006 through to the beginning of 2008.   He would later join The Young and the Restless and team up with then head writers: Maria Arena Bell and Scott Hamner, and eventually stay with the show till 2012.  During Sheffer’s time in Genoa City, Y&R also won a Daytime Emmy for Outstanding Writing in 2011.

On Sunday, former WWE and daytime writer Tom Casiello, who was extremely close with Sheffer…  and who shared how Hogan gave him his start at writing in daytime, took to his Facebook page to pay tribute to a man who had such an impact on his life and many others.  It is worth the read here. 

Y&R writer, Sara Bibel tweeted: “Hogan Sheffer was a gamechanger for ATWT and daytime. Everyone I know who worked with him adored him. RIP”

And, iconic ATWT star, Martha Byrne (Ex-Lily) tweeted on Sheffer’s passing: “To say he was one of a kind would be a tremendous understatement. Our years at ATWT with Hogan at the helm were a rebirth for our beautiful show. Loved his writers, actors,crew. Blessed to have him on the first floor in Brooklyn ready to listen. Talented. Funny. Generous. RIP”

Colleen Zenk (Ex-Barbara, ATWT) also took to Twitter upon learning of the passing of Sheffer sharing: “I loved him, loved him, loved him… he was so good to me. Thank you for everything, Hogan. You were so loved. Especially, by me… Rest in peace…”

Michael Fairman TV will continue to bring you updates as the soap world mourns the loss of a creative force in our genre.  Share your condolences and thoughts on the death of Hogan Sheffer via the comment section below.
