News flash Villy fans! One half of the beloved duo of Genoa City has signed a new contract with the number one soap, and everyone is waiting with bated breath to find out about the other half!

Amelia Heinle confirmed tonight via her Twitter account that she has indeed signed a new contract with CBS’ The Young and the Restless, which will mark her ten year anniversary playing the role of Victoria Newman Abbott!  But Heinle also related that she hopes that her scene partner Billy Miller (Billy Abbott) will sign on too! As had been first reported by Daytime Confidential, it’s contract time for Miller.  Will he stay? Or, will he go?

Amelia tweeted, “Thank you for your continued support. I’m really happy to be staying for my tenth year on Y and R! Now we need Billy to sign on again too!”

She then added in regards to two-time Daytime Emmy winner Miller:  “He’s one of a kind and will be missed terribly if He goes. ‘ll do my best to convince Him to stay, that’s the truth, working with Billy is one of my favorite parts of this show.”

So, are you happy to hear Amelia Heinle is staying put?  What would you want to say to Billy Miller to convince him to stay with Y&R?  If the show would recast such a pivotal star and character such as Miller and Billy Abbott, do you think it could even work? Weigh-in!

No way.. they are a terrible couple..
I always hoped Billy would somehow be free of Victoria, he deserved someone better, Victoria is so annoying .. lol..
I adore Billy but Victoria, yuck .
I wish this were turned around and Victoria would be leaving and Billy would stay 🙂

I kinda agree…I’m neutral on AH.
She can stay or go, but Billy really needs to re-sign. I would love to see him with someone else, but I can tolerate AH if I have to. Billy is the only one who makes her watchable.

Amelia Heinle: You, as well; are 1 of a kind. i’m so besotted… with: Billy and Victoria… the one true staple… couple… character actors’ who deliver day in and day out… the two actors’ who are constant: in that they real – Serial. romance, heartache, command, belong… give and take… and always step up to the plate. I, along with: Billy Miller: I truly hope YOU sign.. with couples who reign: 1. Bill and Victoria – they personify Y&R … so real it hurts… quagmire. We wish for 2. Adam and Sharon – SHOULD BE… why not? is beyond comprehension…… Read more »

Thrilled Amelia is staying and so very much hoping Billy will re-sign as well. They are both loved very much. I can’t imagine Billy Abbott being played by anyone else. Nor can I imagine Villy with anyone other than Billy and Amelia. They are special. Very special.

I believe it won’t be the same with out him as they are my absolute favorite couple and no one could now replace him it wouldn’t work. He is perfect for the role and please sign on for more wonderful “Villy” scenes. She signed on but its only a celebration if you have both. I don’t know if I watch this show anymore as to me they are the most interesting couple and actors on the show everyone else is great but they make me laugh and smile. So please billy miller don’t go you are on the best show… Read more »

I love “Billy” and “Victoria” together. These past few weeks, dealing with Delia’s tragedy, have been awesome. Billy Miller has turned in several Emmy Award-winning performances and isn’t that what the Y&R strives for? You’ve GOT to stay Billy. I told you 5 years ago when I met you that you’re a “great” actor and I haven’t changed my mind. Amelia’s a native of the Valley of the Sun (where I live), so I can’t help but root for her.

Just read that negotiations are not going well for Billy Miller and they are auditioning for another Billy. If Jill Farren Phelps thinks this will fly, she is out of her friggin mind! If Billy Miller walks, I hope they write the character off. I am still not on board with the recasts of Abby and Kyle.

You are so right about the recast of kyle and abby to me they are boring and unimportant now and now I can’t watch their scenes.

OH MY THE WORST REPLACEMENT EVER. KYLE IS TERRIBLE. WHEN THERE IS A SCENE WITH SEVERAL NEW PEOPLE I LEAVE THE ROOM. HERE THEY ARE. KYLE, ABBY, HILERY, LESLEY, AND TYLOR. MAYBE RYLAN TOOK OFF BECAUSE SHE DID NOT LIKE THE WAY ABBY WAS GOING. ONE MORE THINK. THE WOMEN OF 50 CUT YOUR HAIR INT WOMAN HAIRCUTS. THAT LONG STRINGY HAIR IS FOR THE KIDS. GET THAT NIKKI, JILL, TRACEY, BE WOMEN. YOU LOOK SO MUCH BETTER. OH BY THE WAY I LOVE YOUNG AND THE RESTLESS, BEEN WATCHING SINCE 1973

I so agree….still trying to like the Abby, Kyle recast. Billy Miller is Billy Abbott, if they try to recast him it will be a big big mistake….please keep BILLY

Totally agree about the long hair and we might want to talk to some of the wardrobe people dressing these women in two sizes too small just looks stupid. The actor who plays nu/Kyle is an FOJ he is not going anywhere. Also the character of Abby is an FOJ funny how we viewers have to suffer because we have no professionals in the room.

My favorite Y&R couple – LOVE,LOVE,LOVE Billy and Victoria …they have one of the best storylines going right now (albeit a sad one),but they are doing an incredible job.
Glad Amelia has resigned and YES PLEASE, Billy, resign on the dotted line.

They are a classic couple in the same league as Romeo and Juliet– two members of warring families, falling in love and trying to stay together despite the odds against them. And I have like seeing a married couple work through their problems instead of having affairs and multiple divorces. And the two actors playing these characters at the moment have a lovely rapport and chemistry between them. It isn’t your typical smoldering sexuality that most soap couples seem to have, but it is more sweet and playful, but passionate when it has to be. But that being said I… Read more »

Super happy to hear that Amelia inked a new contract. Can only hope she can talk some sense into Billy and encourage him to stay as well. The pair is so great together I can’t imagine them with anyone else. They are the perfect duo and no other actor could take their place. I hope to see them together for a long time to come. Billy and Victoria all the way! Xoxo

I cannot relate to her version of Victoria Newman at all. I also think the character of Victoria, in her incarnation destroys the character of Billy Abbott. I hope Miller moves on to other projects and I am terribly sad to hear they are not recasting Victoria or making some huge move to give the role back to Heather Tom. Billy Miller can do so much better. He is super talented and this is a business, she can’t convince him to stay..haha, no one can. If he gets the contracts he wants, he stays…that’s it. I really would love to… Read more »

All due respect to your opinion…I was so happy Heather Tom left the role. I could never ever ever get on board with her Victoria. She was surly, unlikeable, miserable, bitchy all the time for no reason whatsoever. She wasn’t a villain, she wasn’t a heroine…I just never got where they were going with her or what her throughline was. She always had a perma-scowl on her face. Amelia Heinle’s Victoria is warm and loving and tough when she needs to be but you know underneath she is a fragile little girl never quite sure of herself. She is someone… Read more »

The two actors that stand out on Y&R now are Billy Miller and Michael Muhney. They are the future of this show. If Sony/CBS were to lose either of them, they’d be fools. I don’t think Steve Burton has added one thing since he arrived. As for Daniel Goddard and Joshua Morrow, they need to take some acting classes.

Misty…girlfriend…I completely agree with you about Steve Burton. More and more, SB adds NOTHING to Y&R…AT ALL!!!!! All he does is unfairly hog on-air time. No Thank You. And, as for this stupid-ass bullshit storyline where Dylan is Nikki’s long-lost son…again…No Thank You. VERY, VERY DUMB AS HELL!!!!!

Hasn’t Billy Miller pulled this the last three years? I want a chance to do primetime etc. etc. blah blah blah. Hey Billy Miller you might want to talk to MG/Daniel how much has he been doing since he left. Y&R wrote him a storyline so he could seek another emmy and I guess he is still not happy.

Patrick
Guest

yes, he has: oh, those contact negotiations…

never.. have we fans have had to pay so much attention to the production…

especially the writing…
now it’s everything… ie: writing, directing, producing… casting… oh… for the glory days.. when we had it all….

having said that…

soap fodder… it’s billy miller’ right…
but… if, he didn’t make prime time.. his first two years during… contract negotiations.. he should just sign… a cost of living increase… his due… and just commit to being (co-chair) MR. Y&R w/Adam.

and thee lady herself… Amelia Heinle… Ms. Genoa City

We love you Billy, Amelia, and Michael…

She knows that Billy has to stay because with out him, Victoria has become a dead weight. Heather Tom carried that character without needing a scene partner with AH struggles if she doesn’t have Billy to play off against.

Patrick

sorry… have to naysay: I disagree.

Amelia Heinle emobodies All Woman.

Heather Tom had that plumpish child look….

whereas, Amelia Heinle… fully celebrates her womanhood… and should… she’s ooh la la sensual – she captivates – makes Men smile – grin – giddy – laugh – tear up

I hope and pray to God that Billy Miller signs that new Y&R contract already!!!!! He is VERY CLEARLY THE BEST Billy Abbott that Y&R has ever had…which is more than I can say for some of the other actors who have played Billy Abbott in the past. Back in the day, my LEAST FAVORITE actor in the role of Billy Abbott was Ryan Brown… aka HORRIBLE RE-CASTING!!!!! No Thank You. Bottom Line here: Billy Miller…dude…PLEASE sign that new Y&R contract already!!!!! You and Amelia Heinle are BEYOND MAGICAL on-screen. Remember that.

Peace.

When it’s time to sign contracts Billy Miller always holding out for more money, he should be glad that he has a job, AMC and OLTL don’ t have job, hire one of them to replace him.

That is why I said what I did above when he first came on I really liked him but he wears on me with the same goofy smile I still say no one is irreplaceable someone who is good can always make the character their own. Terry Lester/Jack was a friend and I never thought anyone could replace him but PB did and his take of Jack is different but it works.

Billy is playing an awesome part. Just wish the writers would move forward and not spend so much time on one topic. I look forward to Y & R and record it everyday so as not to miss an episode. If they continue to loose the good characters, I am afraid that fans will begin to loose interest. I have been watching Y & R since the first show many, many years ago.

I am glad Amelia is staying on as Victoria….I hope Billy and Y & R are able to work out the sticky points that is keeping him from resigning. He wants to stay. I want him to stay. Victoria and Billy go together like peanut butter and jelly……nobody else could play that part as well as Billy Miller.

I love both of them!!! They make a perfect couple and their roles have also written them to be a “real life” couple that deals with real issues. They can re-cast the role of Billy with someone else, but, it would really ruin the magic that these two share as a couple. I would definitely not be as good of a show without him. He has that “look” that can’t be duplicated. PLEASE STAY BILLY MILLER!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I’m really glad that Amelia stays with the show. I hope, Billy will, too, and the writers don’t split them on the show. I had the idea that Victoria might fall for Dylan when I saw the Vetran Day’s episode. In that case, Nikki would need to come out about Dylan being her son – and Vikki’s brother.
The role of Billy could be recast but they won’t find a better actor.

Victoria Konefal Returns to Days of our Lives

Cin fans will be happy to know the other half of the DAYS super couple will be back on-screen later this month as Ben (Rob Scott Weston) and Ciara’s (Victoria Konefal) love story is set to continue.

According to Soap Opera Digest, Look for Konefal to first appear back on-screen during the January 28th episode of the NBC daytime drama series.

When the missing in action Ciara returns she will bring with her a new character named Rhodes played by Jason Downs.

No word on how long Konefal’s stay will be this time, since she has been off-contract with the show since last year.

However, reportedly this this will be Ciara in the flesh, not a conjured up or “Vision” of her that comes to Ben in his time of need.

What do you think has happened to Ciara since the car explosion she was supposedly part of? Glad to know Victoria is on her way back on-air to DAYS? Comment below.

Will AMC Favorite Josh Duhamel Replace Armie Hammer in JLo’s Film, ‘Shotgun Wedding’?

After a controversial few weeks, which saw Armie Hammer exit his leading role opposite Jennifer Lopez in Liongate’s upcoming romantic-comedy/adventure film Shotgun Wedding, it appears the motion picture has found its replacement if the ink is signed.

Former All My Children and Daytime Emmy winner Josh Duhamel (Ex-Leo) has been picked as Hammer’s replacement.

The film tells the story of a couple that gathers their families for a destination wedding even as they get cold feet. If that wasn’t enough, the entire party then gets taken hostage.

Lopez and Hammer were headed for the film shoot in the Dominican Republic when salacious DM’s rumored to be attributed to  Hammer came to light on social media and derailed the films for now.  However, if Duhamel signs on to the film, they could can retain its start date in February

Hammer had responded to the allegations against him and the DM’s by sharing: “I’m not responding to these bullshit claims but in light of the vicious and spurious online attacks against me, I cannot in good conscience now leave my children for 4 months to shoot a film in the Dominican Republic,”

A Lionsgate spokesperson  also responded to Hammer and his exit sharing: “Given the imminent start date of Shotgun Wedding, Armie has requested to step away from the film, and we support him in his decision.”

The Hollywood Reporter first broke the casting news update.

So what do you think of Duhamel as Hammer’s replacement to play opposite JLO? Comment below.
