Like I said Shawna is turning into another Hillary unfortunately


It is so unreal for Devon to hate Lily, it was an accident and her son was in the car!!!!!. Hopefully Christel will get an award for her outstanding acting. Love this show.


Hey, Tess,
This was an accident which could have been avoided.
It IS Lily’s fault. She was the driver……responsible for everyone in the car.
Good lesson for all us drivers….no talking….no anger….especially with kids in the car.
But, her long-lived hate for Hilary blinded her to rationality……
Her anger was so overwhelming, her brain only thought of blaming and hurting Hilary any way she could….and, it’s not as if she’s such a saint!!
I realize the writers had to have a dramatic exit for Hilary, but not death….no need for the melodramatic.
There were so many options….


You make good points, Celia. People are held responsible for accidents all the time (while driving drunk, etc.) I’m not sure prison is appropriate for Lily, but her flippant dismissal today makes me wonder (“I’ll probably pay a fine or do some community service”) if she’s as sorry as she claims. Cane is unbearable; he looks like there’s a hot poker, um, somewhere, torturing him. The only bright spot today was seeing Michael and Lauren. How long has it been since their last good story?


YES!! Michael and Lauren!!!!!….finally, Soaphound!!
I never liked Cane…..that’s a no-brainer. I find him dull and as spirited as a lump of dough.
Well, at least with dough, we can make bread, pizza, sticky buns? ect…. Cane? What can we make out of Cane….
You are hilarious. Hot poker? Um, where? Oh, Lordy, Lord!! LOL.
As far as Lily….perhaps the writers are making exactly this point……anger IS like a drug or alcohol, I assume.
One’s perception is distorted—foggy…..
Soooo…..probation is in good order. Obviously she did not mean for the accident to happen. But, she should have exercised full control and focus…..sheer irresponsibility.
Thing is, Soaphound, Lily used to be one of my faves….but, her prima donna airs turned me off….
Yes, Hilary, at times, made me want to smack her upside the head ( I am not, by any means, a violent person) when trying to use subterfuge or ‘indulge’ in one of her little schemes, but that was Hilary……Lily just changed overnight.
Then, ‘they’ decided to pair her with Cane, with grown children….with not a scintilla of inspiration, or cuteness,; just like their children….Mamma mia!!


Unfortunately, this gives Lily more air-time. BIG sigh.


Maybe if lily hadn’t taken her eye off the road for seconds to yell at Hilary she wouldn’t have ran the light. I’m with Devon on this one.


It’s only Monday night and I’m already sick of Nikki’s self-righteousness, Devon’s “poor-me” grief, Shauna’s know-it-all street’tude, Summer’s slutty overtures, Tessa’s turmoils, and Cane’s wimpy defense of Lily. So what’s left? Guess I’ll have to settle for Kyle’s abs. Not much else interests me these days.


Why should we care about Tessa and her sister? The first storyline bombed BIG time. I agree with you, Soaphound.


dmr, my only hope is that Tessa’s sister’s new “quality” life includes acting school. She was in painfully over her head, poor thing.


Not a fan of Tessa or her family, and not sure why they are doing this rehashed story when it didn’t work the first time. No. Thanks.


LOL…I’m glad Kyle’s abs do something for you, my love….NOTHING for me!! He’s a diva….
Agree with you with these characters. Shawna is a prop …..for whom or what I have yet to figure out….I guess it was to show Hilary’s humanity and goodness?
Tessa, the same….. She’s no Patty Weaver ( Gina Roma)…. Patty has a voice!!!!!! Is that the reason she’s on? Bringing talent back? Ain’t working…..
Nikki needs to step back and remind herself of her age….stop with the boy-toys. Victor should just stock up on his Viagra..
All we need is a pregnant Nikki, with divine help I wouldn’t put it past the PTB. They did it with Ashley, not too long ago……also, with Kristin on DOOL, albeit that was fake? I think? Two whammies.


Celia, I admit to not liking Kyle at first but have capitulated for two reasons: (1) Billy is a total screwup and Kyle was kind to Jack during the “daddy” search and (2) Michael Mealor is BFF of Josh Swickard, GH’s Chase. They are so cute together and seem like decent, non-predatory guys. But Miss Nikki? How unbearable is she? Maternity clothes? They’d have to make ’em skin tight for her to wear them! And if Arturo is the lucky papa (who else), the baby will no doubt be born needing a good shave!


Your post is great, you made me laugh out loud, about the baby needing a shave. I agree about Kyle didn’t much care for him in the beginning but realized he is really great. Wish Phyllis would wake up and see that Billy is a self centered child. Maybe him and Summer do belong together??


Yeah, Soaphound……comparatively speaking, Kyle is a prince……I have nener, ever liked nuBilly.
Billy Miller, as Billy Abbot had such a way about him that I could forgive him anything….I know, I can be pretty unreasonable. LOL….but, what a guy!! That face!!
I do not see what others do in nuBilly…..I don’t find him hot, at all….not my kind of hot.
Besides, Billy Miller’s BA had changed….I’m sort of weirded-out that the PTB put Billy back in square one. Why??


You’re not being unreasonable, Celia. Mr. Thompson is a competent actor but has always played Billy with a smug arrogance and without a trace of the easy humor that our wonderful Billy M. had, or even the likeable flakiness that Burgess Jenkins portrayed. And, right now, he’s unbearable!


Oh, Soaphound….I had completely forgotten about Jenkins…..I guess it tell me he made absolutely no impact as Billy….even worse than Thompson…..who is, as you say, unbearable.
Oh, my gosh……there is no ‘simpatia’, as the Italians are wont to say…..’non e’ simpatico….or simpatica’–whatever the gender may be.
I truly tried to get into Thompson and Tognoni…..the magic hasn’t happened yet.


Nothing is going to happen to Lily..
Devon will save her, why? because its Y&R and nothing will happen lol Lily will be saved..

to mention;
Billy (Jason Thompson)
Jason is 100 times better as Billy than he was as Patrick GH ..


I do feel bad for Lily. She is a good person who made a bad mistake. It’s a shame Devon is so hell bent on making her pay. He knows Lily. Yes, she disliked Hilary, but she had good reason! Devon is upset. I get that. I would be too, but he can’t seriously want his sister to go to prison for 20 years. And then him being all nice to Mattie when he’s trying to cart her mother off to prison made me mad. I also don’t think Michael was a great lawyer for her. He should have scared her straight BEFORE she spoke with Paul. I also don’t know why she didn’t realize how serious it was, but that’s what a lawyer is for. He failed her big time. I hope it will come out that Lily isn’t to blame. Prison scenes don’t really work well.

Will Y&R’s Jack Abbott Turn Out To Be Victor Newman’s Half-Brother?

This week on The Young and the Restless brings a new clue as to the identity of the biological father of Jack Abbott (Peter Bergman).  Couple things we do know: neither John Abbott nor Phillip Chancellor is his dad.

Now Jack turns his attention to the other men in the photo from Dina’s (Marla Adams) younger days.  One in particular looks mighty familiar!  And as revealed in the latest promo for this week’s action in Genoa City, Arthur Miller (the late George Kennedy) the father of Victor Newman (Eric Braeden), is one of the men in the photo.


Has this whole storyline been set up to make long-standing nemesis’ Jack and Victor actual brothers?  So then Jack would try to also claim Newman Enterprises?

Some Y&R viewers on social media have been swift to point out that this is a rewrite of Y&R history that they are not in favor of.

In the latest issue of SOD now newsstands now, Y&R executive producer and head writer, Mal Young expressed on the potential story bombshell: “This could be the goldmine Jack’s been looking for,  but it will take him down a path he doesn’t want to go to.”

The question remains: is Arthur Miller being Jack’s dad just another red herring, or how the story will actually resolve itself?

Watch the latest promo for Y&R below.  Then share your thoughts via the comment section below … would you like it, or loathe it, if Jack and Victor were to turn out to be brothers?
