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

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!

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!!!

Lindsay Hartley On Temporarily Replacing GH’s Kelly Monaco: “Some Big Shoes To Fill … Precious Too.”

When General Hospital returned to shooting new episodes amid the coronavirus pandemic, Sam McCall looked a bit different temporarily and that’s because the role was played for a bit by soap veteran Lindsay Korman-Hartley (Ex-Passions, All My Children, and Days of our Lives).

Hartley has been subbing for series star, Kelly Monaco (Sam) and according to Daytime Confidential is filling in only for a few weeks in the role,

Lindsay tweeted when the news broke: “Some big shoes to fill…precious too. I hope you enjoy watching Sam as much as I have enjoyed playing her, temporarily.”

In addition on Friday, Monaco’s mom, took to Twitter and informed a fan of Kelly’s the status of her daughter’s health which was good news that she will be back (as it looks as of now) on Monday to tape new episodes of GH,

Carmina Monaco shared:”Kelly is great and should be back on set Monday. 14 day quarantine after a breathing problem with mask 1st day back. 3 negative Covid test, I’d say she is better than great. Thank you for all of the love,”

GH fans are eagerly awaiting new episodes of the long-running ABC daytime drama series to begin airing, and they won’t have to wait much longer as this coming Monday, August 3rd, the story picks back up.

We look forward to Kelly’s return to the series in the role she made soap-famous, while Lindsay takes over to keep the character present in the storylines.

So, what do you think of Lindsay being the temp recast for Kelly? Glad to know Kelly is doing OK? Share your thoughts below.

Ellen DeGeneres Offers Apology As She and Her Talk Show Remain Under Fire

On Thursday, Ellen DeGeneres served up an apology to former and current staff and crew members of her ever-popular daytime talk show, The Ellen DeGeneres Show.

After many complaints were brought to light by former employees of the show about the culture of the work-place behind the scenes, WarnerMedia is now handling its own internal investigation of the show.  It all began when BuzzFeed’s widely-circulated piece had former employees’ anonymous accusations of racism, intimidation, unjust termination and an overall toxic work culture, perpetuated by the show’s top producers.

In a memo, DeGeneres expressed that now that the issues were brought to her attention, they are taking steps to ensure to correct them moving forward.   While neither she nor Warner Brothers will comment on the fate of specific employees, two sources had revealed to The Hollywood Reporter that executive producer Ed Glavin — one of the show’s three EPs, and the one at the center of many of the more unsavory claims is among those who will be let go

Ellen let everyone associated with the show that she would have delivered this message on-camera on her show, if not for COVID-19, where everyone on the staff and the crew would have been present.   What she wrote is below:

DeGeneres shared:  “Hey everybody – it’s Ellen. On day one of our show, I told everyone in our first meeting that The Ellen DeGeneres Show would be a place of happiness – no one would ever raise their voice, and everyone would be treated with respect. Obviously, something changed, and I am disappointed to learn that this has not been the case. And for that, I am sorry. Anyone who knows me knows it’s the opposite of what I believe and what I hoped for our show.

I could not have the success I’ve had without all of your contributions. My name is on the show and everything we do and I take responsibility for that. Alongside Warner Bros, we immediately began an internal investigation and we are taking steps, together, to correct the issues. As we’ve grown exponentially, I’ve not been able to stay on top of everything and relied on others to do their jobs as they knew I’d want them done. Clearly some didn’t. That will now change and I’m committed to ensuring this does not happen again.”

I’m also learning that people who work with me and for me are speaking on my behalf and misrepresenting who I am and that has to stop. As someone who was judged and nearly lost everything for just being who I am, I truly understand and have deep compassion for those being looked at differently, or treated unfairly, not equal, or — worse — disregarded. To think that any one of you felt that way is awful to me.

It’s been way too long, but we’re finally having conversations about fairness and justice. We all have to be more mindful about the way our words and actions affect others, and I’m glad the issues at our show were brought to my attention. I promise to do my part in continuing to push myself and everyone around me to learn and grow. It’s important to me and to Warner Bros. that everyone who has something to say can speak up and feels safe doing so.

I am so proud of the work we do and the fun and joy we all help put out in the world. I want everyone at home to love our show and I want everyone who makes it to love working on it. Again, I’m so sorry to anyone who didn’t have that experience. If not for COVID, I’d have done this in person, and I can’t wait to be back on our stage and see you all thenStay safe and healthy.  Love,  Ellen”

Meanwhile, Everybody Loves Raymond alum Brad Garrett , who has been a guest on Ellen, claimed on Twitter that DeGeneres bears responsibility for the workplace culture.  He tweeted late Thursday night. “Sorry but it comes from the top ⁦@TheEllenShow. Know more than one who were treated horribly by her.⁩ Common knowledge.”

So, how do view’s Ellen’s message? Do you think the show is about to go under some serious house-cleaning? Share your thoughts via the comment section below.
