Two-time Daytime Emmy winner, Hunter King is one busy actress these days.   First, she is in major storyline during the day at The Young and the Restless as Summer Newman, and then at night she will be seen in the upcoming new season of the hit CBS comedy Life in Pieces as Clementine.

However, with that can often arise a scheduling conflict.  According to TV Insider, starting the week of October 1st for three episodes, the part of the trouble-making Summer will be played by Bayley Corman.

Corman has had a list of primetime credits including: Jane the Virgin, 2 Broke Girls and will appear in the pilot episode of the upcoming CW series All American which bows October 6th.

King will not be gone for long, as she will be back on-screen come the October 4th episode of the top-rated daytime drama.

Hunter came on to the soap scene in 2012 and went on-contract.  Then in 2016, she was put on recurring status with the show, but returned to the series in June of this year with major story which is continuing with its twists and turns.

So, what do you think of the temp recast for Hunter? Comment below.

Why would we want a daughter of a Newman gone? Their legacy needs to continue.

I was not a Summer fan until she returned to the show under Mal Young. She is being written in a way that shows King’s acting ability. She acts like Phyllis’s daughter now and that keeps it interesting. I’m not however happy about the firing of Doug Davidson (Paul) from the show or the exit of Eileen Davidson (Ashley).

I love Hunter King and I love Summer. This viewer from 1973 loves to see fresh air on my old soap and Summer brings it. Having the opportunity to see another young woman in the role is good because who knows how long Hunter will be able to fulfil both roles.

There’s no reason for a grown woman like Summer to be acting the way she is. That’s something that a 12 year old girl would be too old for. Just get her off the screen already.

Needs some help..
I can Not post using chrome win7..
I am totally updated and clean pc..
So–
how can delete my account and create a new one ??
It has to be a glitch with my software/os/ip/whatever.

I have to switch my server to Firefox to be able to post and doing that has become a great annoyance..
How can I create a new/different account?

(I was told that Perhaps I was posting simultaneously during a board upgrade..
I had no problem posting until one day 2 months back when I no longer could.

So” suggestions?

The “Summer” character needs to be written off permanently! Either that or replace Hunter permanently! I think it’s more the actress I dislike than the character.

I think you’re right, SZima. She just isn’t likeable, which is always a drawback for me. This will be a chance to determine if it’s the character, the actress…or both.

I love Hunter King and have seen her on different shows and roles but even as a fan I think they need to do away with the role of Summer completely like Daniel

I hope this new gal is good and replaces Hunter permanently!

This temp is hot! If she can act and needs a job, cast her permanently! Hunter has a full time job. She will always treat Y&R as a part time job and it will show. We need the character! When Michelle leaves GH, snatch her and put her up against the new Summer! PLEASE!

You lost me at “Two-time Daytime Emmy winner, Hunter King…”

I honestly wouldn’t mind if you wrote the Summer character completely out. Her character has changed too much just like Nicks. Its’ not really believable and its’ despicable if she jumps in bed with her mother’s boyfriend. Even soap operas should have a taboo subject.

Glad she’s still on Y & R

Please keep the original Summer!!!

Y&R’s Bryton James Stands Up For Michael Jackson After Allegations In New Documentary, ‘Leaving Neverland’

Since the Sundance Film Festival premiered, the Michael Jackson documentary Leaving Neverland, set to air March 3 and 4th on HBO, left attendees disturbed by the sexual abuse allegations detailed in the film by two men, who worked with, and knew Jackson when they were just children, Wayne Robson and James Safechuck.  In this expose, they claim that the iconic musician sexually abused them when they were young.

However, a new article from Forbes, details incidents that took place that could have led to Robson and Safechuck to change their tune and say they were abused, when back on the stand in 2005 during one of Jackson’s triasl, Robson adamantly, confidently, and credibly asserted that nothing sexual happened between them,

Then in 2013, Robson filed a $1.5 billion dollar civil lawsuit/creditor’s claim, along with James Safechuck, who also spent time with Jackson in the late ‘80s. Safechuck claimed he only realized he may have been abused when Robson filed his lawsuit. That lawsuit was dismissed by a probate court in 2017.

However, several adults who knew Jackson when they were children have spoken up and let it be known that there was no sexual abuse when they were young perpatrated on them by the oop icon including: Macaulay Culkin, Sean Lennon, Emmanuel Lewis, Alfonso Ribeiro, and Corey Feldman, to name a few.

You can add The Young and the Restless Bryton James (Devon Hamlilton) to that list,  James, who appeared at a young age in a commercial with Jackson, and who became a close friend of Michael’s, took to Twitter over the weekend to share his sentiments, and to let people know he never witnessed, or heard of anything inappropriate going on with a minor.

James tweeted:  “Over our 15 year friendship, neither I or my family ever witnessed @michaeljackson conduct himself inappropriately with a minor, or anyone for that matter. & during the time I worked with Mr. Robson as a child, he never once mentioned any wrong doing.”

So, what do you think of Bryton’s message in tandem with the Forbes article on the accusers in Leaving Neverland, and the never-ending-saga of Michael Jackson’s alleged sexual abuse of young boys?  Jackson had been previously acquitted in court cases in 1990’s and the mid-2000’s. Comment below.

The MUAHS were presented just out one day after the Academy Awards reversed its decision to hand out the Oscar for Makeup and Hairstyling during commercial breaks.

They had previously announced that it would present the categories of: cinematography, film editing, live action short, and make-up and hair during commercials and then later playback the acceptance speeches later in the broadcast.  However, due to the uproar of that decision, it was quickly reversed and now all categories, per usual, will be presented on-air.

So, what do you think of Y&R wins last night in the Daytime category?  Do the characters of Genoa City look the best in daytime? Share your thoughts via the comment section below.
