The Young and the Restless has the second smallest cast of actors in daytime, honestly.

I see that Chloe is back. Why is she coming back with the revenge for Adam. Let this episode go! I understand and has empathy for Delia’s death. Adam was tried and freed. How long is this saga is going to go on. You need to be creative. I notice a lot of your storylines are always repeating themselves. Stop this Delia storyline. It went on long enough. Couldn’t you have given her another role? This is boring; rehashing things over and over and over. Get rid of that dorn Luca. He is irrelevant, I would like to know why… Read more »

I like the character of Chloe. I hope they dont send her completely off the deep end!

Dylan steals ALL of Paul’s lines now. Paul needs to put Dullon over his knee!

They are writing Jack as a clueless druggie like in a Jude Aptow film!

Justin Harley feminized Adam!

You are right, a billion dollar company with one office featuring a 30 year old painting of The Mustache!

The cast photograph is extremely glam and reminds me of old-Hollywood. I cannot wait for other cast photographs to come out from the 43rd anniversary shoot! And right now, this soap is on top of its game. The stories are riveting, and I cannot wait to see what’s coming next, especially with the changes that Mal Young has been making, and has yet-to-make!

Timmm, “Scott” is “Scott”, who has been watching this soap for 20+ years. Just because someone has a positive opinion, that differs from your negative one, does not mean they are not valid. This is the type of behaviour Michael continues to post about on social media.

No. And unlike you two boys, I am not resorting to name-calling and low-blow insults, simply because your viewpoint of the soap differs from mine. Grow up!

You’re very rude, Bart. And given how long you’ve been watching the show, that’s very upsetting to know someone of your age is acting like a five-year old online. Gain some self-respect.

Scott-never let the negative get to you-some feed on that-best to say thanks for your opinion and let it go at that or they will keep egging you on like Bart-whoever…im starting to enjoy Y&R and have been tuning in more lately…i always watched this one very little over the years beginning with the Brook sisters back in the 70s…watched when Dru and Sharon went over the cliff…but i find myself drawn to it a little more lately…i used to watch a few times a month…now i watch 3 times a week!!

That makes me extremely happy to hear; there has been amazing things coming from Y&R this year, and it’s only going to get better. The pace is great, the storytelling is amazing, and I can’t wait to see what comes next. Hope you keep tuning in, Jim!

Thank you for that, Bill. Judith & Ted are sorely missed. Remember that story a few years ago when Michael’s father resurfaced…her performances were among the best I’ve ever seen, nighttime OR daytime. And instead we have Luca? Something doesn’t compute.

I agree. Lucas is a useless waste of space. I loved the days when Gloria was running Gloworm. She seemed so in her element doing so. Ms Chapman is to much talent to be wasted. Being both a fan of Jess Walton and Tristan Rogers, I would love to see Jill and Collin come back. Maybe we could have a fair trade. Lucas and Summer leave, and we get Jill and Colin. Mwybe if we wsk nicely and say pretty please!!!!!!

Re: Elizabeth Hendrickson…she’s probably not in the photo because she’s just on for a short story arc and no longer a part of the regular cast.

Thank you Scott! I did some checking and you’re right about EH’s status.
I used to like Chloe OK, but I’m not caring for vengeful Chloe, so maybe that was my wishful thinking…that she is short-term. LOL

With all due respect, I do come to the soap genre to escape negative reality, KKay. I realize some has-been soap actors have decided to come to step up and speak on behalf of Hitler, er, I mean, Trump so Mr Fairman has to write about it. However, this blog and this thread has nothing to do with that shit storm which is currently occurring. I am sorry to sound terse or remotely rude but this is the first time in my adult life in which a presidential campaign has instilled in me a true sense of horror. Can we… Read more »

Love how different viewers perceive things. For me, the picture emphasized faces; liked that. I too miss Judith Chapman but always dislike saying who does not please. Dr. Neville’s kind of abstract role has been fun. Victor’s newest redemption has been troublesome to watch.

Give me an occasional, smart good gal or guy in all of this. Mariah comes close, perhaps Ashley, but the play out of Dylan and Paul is way off key.

Where’s the cake and the loose atmosphere with this picture? Why is it so hoity toity? It’s formal instead of fun. It comes off as being snooty.

Oh, how I W-I-S-H that Y&R would bring back the following characters…regular basis and all:

1. Cole
2. Gina
3. Gloria
4. Julia (Victor’s first wife)
5. Mackenzie
6. Malcolm (and, yes, in the form and all of Shemar Moore…the ORIGINAL Malcolm!!!!!)
7. Mamie
8. Murphy
9. Nina
10. Patty

Just an idea……….

All My Children and Guiding Light Vet, Gil Rogers Passes Away

Gil Rogers, who played one of the all-time most dastardly villains in soaps on All My Children and was the on-screen father to the one and only Reva Shayne (Kim Zimmer) on Guiding Light, has died at age 87.

News came via his daughter, Amanda Rogers on her Facebook page, relating that Gil passed away on March 2nd.

The actor had played Tad (Michael E. Knight) and Jenny’s (Kim Delaney) father, Ray Gardner on All My Children from 1977-1978 making multiple appearance though 2001, then later as Hawk Shayne on Guiding Light from 1985-1992 making multiple appearance through 2009.

Gil also appeared on Another World, Search for Tomorrow and The Doctors.

In her post, Amanda wrote: “Gil Rogers died this morning. As you all know, my dad was awesome. He was my best friend, confidant, mentor and just an awesome dad. He came to pick me and  Charlotte Whitaker Zdanowski up at clubs at 2AM in our teens to keep us safe, and drank bourbon with me every day since moving out here 2 years ago. He was welcoming and kind, funny and gregarious, a shameless flirt and a fierce protector. He loved his dinners with grandkids and endured animated movies and discussions about pokemon. And I miss him so terribly already. He died in his sleep, without pain or fear. I am so grateful to have had such a great father and to have spent these past 2 years with him every day.”

Check out this vintage scene below from All My Children where Ray played by Rogers blows up the Martin house.

Now share your remembrances of Gil’s performances and along with condolences for his family in the comment section.

Chris Harrison In First Interview Since ‘Bachelor’ Controversy Says He Wants To Be Back as Host; But GMA’s Michael Strahan Says Apology was a “Surface Response”

Thursday’s Good Morning America featured the highly-publicized first interview with ‘Bachelor’ franchise host and executive producer, Chris Harrison, since he stepped away from the show following his controversial remarks on current Bachelor contestant Rachel Kirkconnell, amid the airing of a season that has seen the first-ever Black male lead of the reality series, Matt James.

Speaking with GMA co-host, Michael Strahan, Harrison spoke of remarks he made during his interview with ex-Bachelorette Rachel Lindsay on Extra that sparked the firestorm.

Harrison admitted the words he spoke to Lindsey were “in a manner that perpetuates racism,” adding “I am an imperfect man I made a mistake and I own that. I believe that mistake doesn’t reflect who I am or what I stand for.”

 

The incident began when photos surfaced on social media of Kirkconnell at an Old South-themed party that she attended back in 2018, along with allegations she “liked” many Instagram posts that were racist in nature, and what many viewed as Harrison coming to her defense in this time of what he then called “cancel culture”.

On GMA, Chris expressed: “Antebellum parties are not OK,  Past, present, future, knowing what that represents is unacceptable.”

He also apologized to Lindsay, who had to shut down her Instagram account because of viral vitriol being sent her way over the incident with Harrison, adding this message to the public, “Anyone who is throwing hate towards Rachel Lindsay, please stop. It’s unacceptable.”

Photo: ABC

As to how he is trying to make amends, Harrison shared: “I made a mistake and I own that, Racism, oppression, these are big dynamic problems and they take serious work. I am committed to that work.”  The longtime Bachelor host then announced he is working with race educator Dr. Eric Dyson who has taught him about the idea of “counsel, not cancel”.

Chris says he plans to be back hosting the reality-dating series, expressing:  “I plan to be back. I want to be back.  This interview is not the finish line. There is much more work to be done.”

Following the exclusive, Michael Strahan described his conversation with Chris Harrison stating: “His apology is his apology, but it felt like it got nothing more than a surface response on any of this. Obviously, he is the man who wants to clearly stay on the show, but only time will tell if there is any meaning behind his words.”

So, what do you think of Chris Harrison’s responses during his first interview since the controversy? Should he return to hosting The Bachelor franchise? Comment below. But first check out his GMA exclusive.

GH’s Wes Ramsey Makes Statement on Criticism, Social Media, and Professionalism

General Hospital’s Wes Ramsey, who portrays polarizing character, Peter August on the ABC daytime drama series, responded to a recent take on his role from cast mate, Tristan Rogers (Scorpio) when a video made its way through social media.

The video was from a Cameo appearance, where Rogers offered an assessment of the Peter August storyline and expressed that while he knows Ramsey is a strong actor, he felt he was “wrong for the character” being that Peter was the son of the evil Faison played by Anders Hove.

Rogers also came to the defense of Ramsey and shared: “Don’t be too hard on Wes Ramsey. He’s got himself into a horrible storyline, and the storyline is the fault of the show. What they’ve literally done is they’ve painted themselves into a corner, and they don’t know how to get out of it.”

Currently, Peter’s story is front and center on GH with his wedding to Maxie (Kirsten Storms), and the fallout from all of the character’s dirty deeds.

Now Ramsey took to his Instagram account to address what transpired and his thoughts on the perils of social media, professionalism and acting, expressing: “Actors are storytellers, shapeshifters, chameleons. We’re also in the business of cultivating trust bc that’s how the best work is brought to life. We have to trust our imaginations, our instincts. We have to trust our fellow actors, because without them, there’s no scene to play. In the collaborative efforts of bringing any show to life, we also have to trust our directors each day to steer the arch of our story (like a conductor with a symphony) & trust our writers who are tasked with composing the symphonies we play out. I came up in a world of classical theater, where trusting the play, text, story is essential to the tightrope balancing act of making magic.  You will never hear me critique (on any public platform) the people responsible for the creative opportunities I enjoy each day. Without the trust of my writers, directors, producers & fellow actors, it would be impossible to live out my dreams. My job (& my only job) is to bring fearlessness, playfulness & passionate conviction to what has been created for me. My aim is to stretch myself (beyond the limits of where I think my boundaries may lye) each time I’m entrusted with material that allows those boundaries to be tested.

 

Every actor must believe they are the right person for their part or they will never achieve their potential, let alone surpass it. I was raised a gentleman & have two wonderful parents to thank for that, however, my polite personality (while rendering me easy to get along with on set) should have little bearing on my caliber of performance nor my castability as a professional.  I am leery of the pitfalls of social media & believe there are advantages to maintaining some mystery (even as a public figure) but I will always defend & protect what I hold dear (my job & my career) when they are publicly challenged, especially by those closest to me, whom I love & respect. Please know I bear no ill will. As a society, we are all still learning the full ramifications of living in an internet dominated culture. To all my many fans out there who offer encouragement & support, I hear you & am grateful for you. I’m having a blast… 🙂. Onward we go.”
