More casting news out of Genoa City, The Young and the Restless has cast Noemi Gonzalez in the role of Rey’s (Jordi Vilasuso) estranged wife, Mia.

With Rey’s burgeoning attraction to Sharon (Sharon Case), just what will happen when Mia comes in to the story?

Soap Opera Digest broke the casting news.  While Vilasuso welcomed Noemi with a tweet “Yes!” Welcome to Genoa City, Noemi!”

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 like the Rosales family.

General Hospital Casts ‘Fresh Prince of Bel-Air’ Alum Janet Hubert As Mike’s New Love Interest

Intriguing casting news out of Port Charles on Sunday. The ABC daytime drama series has tapped former Fresh Prince of Bel-Air star Janet Hubert to play the character of  Yvonne,who is said to be a love interest for Mike (Max Gail) at the nursing home he is now in.

According to EW.com, Yvonne will end up having a connection to someone or someones on the canvas.

Hubert’s first episode is slated to air on December 7th.   Sitcom fans remember Janet from “Fresh Prince’ in scenes with Will Smith in the series in the role of Vivian Banks.

GH is not Janet’s first soap, either.  She appeared on One Life to Live as Evangeline Williamson’s (Renee Elise Goldsberry) and Layla Williamsom’s (Tika Sumpter) mother, Lisa.  The actress also appeared on All My Children as Alice Dawson.

In another twist, Hubert will reunite with Vernee Watson (Stella)om GH.  The two appeared together on “Fresh Prince”, where Watson played Will’s mother.

So does this mean that Yvonne and Stella are both going to be romantically interested in Mike Corbin?

What do you think of the casting news?  Interested to see this next leg of Mike’s story as he declines from Alzheimer’s, but may find love?  Comment below.

Soaps Lift Boycott Threat Of Daytime Emmys

In a key move to allow those performers in front of the camera and behind the scenes crew and creatives to be acknowledged for their accomplishments this calendar year, the four daytime dramas collectively have decided to lift their threatened boycott and participate in the upcoming 46th annual Daytime Emmy competition.

This comes after the four network soaps (Days of our Lives, General Hospital, The Bold and the Beautiful, and The Young and the Restless) banded together after being unsatisfied with snafu’s coming out of the 45th annual Daytime Emmy Awards earlier this year in April, and a list of grievances and concerns they asked to be addressed by the organization that administers the Emmy contest.

Then, following an internal investigation by NATAS by the law firm of Fletcher, Heald & Hildreth of Washington, DC, the results which were released on November 8th, and being in receipt of their findings, the soaps decided to move forward while still having concerns they want addressed.

In a statement from the group, a spokesperson related to Deadline, who broke the story late Friday: “As a group, we are not in agreement with all of the conclusions that NATAS reached.  However, in the spirit of working with NATAS and the TV Academy on improving the integrity of the Daytime Emmys, we have lifted our boycott. We look forward to meeting with NATAS to discuss their findings and our concerns in greater detail.”

On Saturday, someone close to the situation said to Michael Fairman TV: “Our participation doesn’t mean we accept their proposal moving forward, we still have major issues that we will be discussing with the Chair and President (of NATAS), but as a collective whole, we don’t want to penalize our actors for NATAS’ mis-management.”

The 46th Annual Daytime Emmy submissions began earlier this week on November 12th, with the Daytime Emmys slated to be handed out in early May of 2019.

So, are you glad that the network soaps have lifted their threatened boycott so that your favorite performers, whose performances you have loved over the last 11 months can be acknowledged for their talents and hard work? Share your thoughts via the comment section below.
