As per the last sentence in above story.I have to say a lot of us are NOT looking forward to another ” aged-up” teen addition. We have enough without more teenage angst.

Why Oh Why, Violet, are we consistently tortured? Ashland Locke and his insipid wife weren’t enough? Where’s Lauren, Michael, Fen, more Traci and Ashley, Jill, Paul? Sometimes I think they ask too much of fans, especially all at once.

Hi Soaphound Thanks for your comment. I am so sick of this show right now. What you just said is true, and truthfully the SLs right now are sooo boring. Let’s get Adam by any means, so sick of him. Can’t stand Kyle and Summer and the horrible Sally pushing herself into everyone’s life, and dumb Jack just eating it up Devon and his two love interests, to me who cares? He and Mariah having Abby’s baby, and her without a husband anymore, again who cares? Poor Faith, enough with her crazy family but now possibly being stalked by some… Read more »

I can honestly say, Violet, that this is the deepest trough Y&R has been in for many years. I’ve been watching since day one, so it’s somewhat heartbreaking to say this. The common denominator for me: I just DON’T CARE. Not about Kyle & Summer (though I don’t mind Kyle with Lola); not about Sally Slimeball; not about Devon and Nate inexplicably two-timing lovely Amanda for dreary, cheating Elena; Victoria’s adolescent manipulation of loathsome Billy; dullsville Lily; and especially not about Jack’s sudden brain death. I will disagree about Adam, because he’s such a talented actor and amazing looking. Also… Read more »

Soaphound. Well said! I agree with your every point. I’m kind of on Chelsea’s side but I wish she hadn’t nearly killed Rey with her plot of vengeance. She has good reason to hate Adam. His worst crime, however, was making Chelsea wear that ugly, green-brown, velour sweat suit which hasn’t seen since the 80s.

Which hasn’t been SEEN since the 80s. The edit button was not WORKING! Just ruins a good joke!

Oh Harry, that track suit has seen more mileage than the Concorde! And why was Chelsea devoid of makeup UNTIL it came time to execute her revenge plan? Did Meredith’s duties suddenly expand?

I am with you, I don’t mind Kyle abs Lola, but am tired of the whole Kyle abs Summer. I think getting rid of Abby’s husband was a huge mistake and making both of them unable to have kids. I CAN’T stand the direction they have Sharon going with being secretive and pining over Adam when she has an amazing and supportive husband at home. The storyline is old and Rey would not put up with the kids let alone her lies. Just let Chelsea and Adam keep being their crazy selves and cut the whole Adam and Sharon. Phyllis… Read more »

You’ve stated all that you don’t like ; however , I didn’t read anything that you do like. Even when I’m unhappy about certain situations or people , I usually add a positive spin by listing what I like about the show.

I agree with you, Violet. And you, too, Soaphound. “Teenage angst” is difficult enough to go through personally — sadly, I can still remember… So many soaps create these elaborate, contrived plots for teens, only to get rid of them a couple years down the line.

Well said, Jamesj75. They seem to forget the cardinal rule of teenage problems: they’re only interesting to the persons involved. The rest of us either groan or hit Fast Forward! Hang in there, my friend. The show has to get better…right?

James, speaking of teenage angst, the name of Faith’s crush (and the boy who was impersonated by that awful mean-girl Jordan) is Tommy Ross. I have the tendency to remember useless details from popular culture, and so I immediately recalled that the boy who took Carrie White to the prom was named Tommy Ross. So for a minute there, I thought the writers were going in that direction. You know, have Faith use telekinesis to get even with all her bullies, including, but not limited to; Jordan, John Travolta, the girl wearing braids and a baseball cap and the smirking… Read more »

Funny stuff, Harry! And I also have a habit of remembering some “useless details from popular culture.” My affection for nostalgia is palpable. Cheers!

I’m okay with it. He’s about the same age as Faith and that poor girl could use a real friend and love interest. I’m looking forward to it!

You know, Timmm, I’m not normally prescient about soap plots, but I saw this one coming weeks ago, didn’t you? When Devon started mentioning Moses, you could practically see a Central Casting Alert flash on the screen. Ugh! And is Moses meant for Faith? Isn’t she a little young, and immature, for dating?

Soaphound, it never fails, when they start talking about a character you havent seen for awhile, they magically appear! How about someone we care about! And yes, I’m sure Moses will be attached to the Faith storyline. [Excuse me while I puke!]

Exactly, Timmm! And I got a big kick out of your statement: “Excuse me while I puke!” 🙂

Josh Griffith’s writing has no cohesion and or makes no sense. No vision. Not character-driven. Just a bunch of strung -together, boring-as -all get-out conversations. Aged-Moses could be a good story in a capable head writer’s hands. More story potential for Griffith to ruin. When is he getting his pink slip?

Kelly Ripa Talks On Her New Memoir ‘Live Wire: Long-Winded Short Stories’

Talk show host and All My Children alum, Kelly Ripa (ex-Hayley) is opening up about her life and times in her highly-anticipated memoir available now, Live Wire: Long-Winded Short Stories.

Ripa chatted exclusively with PEOPLE who got some of intel and dish on what’s included in the book.

Kelly told PEOPLE, when she landed the gig as the new co-host of Live with Regis and Kelly, with the late Regis Philbin back in 2001, she felt like she was “getting shot out of a cannon.”  Ripa was also appearing on All My Children at the same time.

She tells the story of when her agent called with the offer, Ripa was told: “They want you to know who your boss is. It was very ominous, and it did not feel good.”  Her agent also said the show didn’t want her, “bringing an entourage.” She brought two people. “I came with hair and makeup,” Kelly says. “It was not an unusual thing for people on a television show to show up with.”

She added that Regis greeted her with executive producer, Michael Gelman, saying: “Uh-oh, Gelman, it’s got an entourage.” It?!  Kelly expressed that she “felt horrible.  He was probably trying to be funny, but at the same time it felt like a pile-on.”

As for Philbin’s attitude at the time, Kelly shared, “I understand that probably he didn’t want a co-host, but the network wanted me to be the co-host and I didn’t think I should pass up that opportunity. I don’t think it was fair to him. But it was also not fair to me.”

The actress-talk show host-producer also talked on her marriage to Mark Consuelos (ex-Mateo), whom she met while both were on All My Children, sharing that they were, “too young to get married! On paper it should not have worked and when it didn’t work, we really worked at it. We fought for our marriage when it would have been easier to quit and throw in the towel.”

According to the book publisher, HarperCollins:  “In ‘Live Wire’, her first book, Kelly shows what really makes her tick. Whether recounting how she and Mark (Consuelos) really met, the level of chauvinism she experienced on set, how Jersey Pride follows her wherever she goes, and many, many moments of utter mortification (whence she proves that you cannot, in fact, die of embarrassment) Kelly always tells it like it is. Ms. Ripa takes no prisoners.”

Roark Critchlow on His Return to DAYS and Working With Cady McClain

It’s been 12 years since Roark Critchlow appeared on Days of our Lives as Dr. Mike Horton, the brother of Jennifer Horton Deveraux (Cady McClain). However, fans have been excited to see him back on their screens when the series teased his appearance in the extended fall preview.

Now with Jennifer spiraling downward (now that her pill-popping addiction is back), it seems like a good time for Dr. Mike to return to Salem to help his sis. (And if the promo for this week’s DAYS is any indication, it certainly looks like Jennifer is going to be involved in a car crash and need medical assistance or at least some brotherly love.)

Photo: JPI

Roark initially appeared as Mike back in 1994 and left the soap back in 1999. He returned in 2010 for a few episodes honoring the late Frances Reid (Alice Horton) who was Mike’s grandmother.

In an interview about his return with Soap Opera Digest on newsstands now, Roark talks about working with McClain as Jennifer, when he previously worked with Missy Reeves in the part.

Critchlow expressed on sharing scenes with McClain: “Her character is going through a lot. She and I dropped in really easily, I felt. It was a very nice, natural care for each other. It wasn’t difficult, that’s for sure. Obviously, Missy is a super-duper person. But you don’t compare people. Cady and I chatted. We got on good. In terms of story, I thought we pulled it off nicely as being people who’ve known each other their whole lives.”

Look for Roark to make his DAYS re-emergence on the upcoming October 3rd episode of the Peacock streaming series.

So, looking forward to seeing Roark and Cady sharing scenes together? Share your thoughts in the comment section, but first check out this week’s promo for DAYS below.

John Cena Sets World Record After Granting 650th Wish for the Make-A-Wish-Foundation

There is nobody more requested at the Make-A-Wish Foundation than John Cena. The 16-time WWE wrestling champ-turned-actor for years has granted the wishes of children with critical illnesses for the non-profit foundation.

Now comes the news from the Guinness Book of World Records that Cena has broken the record for granting 650 wishes to children who have put him as the person they want to meet the most.

To put this into context, no other celebrity has ever granted more than 200 wishes in the 42-year existence of Make-A-Wish.

According to a press release, Cena started granting wishes back in 2002 and completed his 100th in 2012, now he is at 650.

Recently this past June, John visited Misha, a teenager with down-syndrome who fled Ukraine after his home was destroyed. In order to keep Misha’s spirits up, his mother told him they were on their way to find John Cena. You can watch their story below, followed by a video package honoring Cena’s 500th milestone with the organization.

On a personal note: as someone who at one time worked as the Director of Communications for the Make-A-Wish-Foundation at a locale chapter in the U.S, I know the smiles and the impact a visit from a child’s personal idol can make to help lift their spirits when trying to cope with critical health issues.

Congratulations John!
