She doesn’t need to be written out. She’s hardly on screen now and doesn’t have her own story. Lola can just be in the kitchen. That’s all.

Exactly! They screwed up her story line a long time ago.

When I first saw the headline, I thought “YES” they’ve finally fired Griffith! Then I finished reading the headline and got so disappointed. This is literally the worst this show has ever been. I’ve watched since 1990. It is even worse than the Lynn Marie Latham destruction of 2007 and all the subsequent writers. While there have been a few bright spots and moments (although fairly rare) since 2008, this is the absolute travesty. Boring. Boring. Boring. There’s almost no conflict (and what little there is I could care less about); it is 100% directionless and spends too much time… Read more »

These two fools need to go, they are ruining Y&R Funny that they WILL NOT talk about why they let Donny Boaz go, a horrible decision, CBS please get rid of these fools PLEASE! Bring someone else to rock Y&R. It’s NOT rocking, it is boring with the same storylines from 2010. The cast deserves better, the Adam storyline is so 2005, it’s 2021.

Now Bergman talk your way out of this crap you know years ago when you wanted no part of the storyline with having a son Keemo

Doug Davidson reduced on YR is almost getting me to not watch. What I would do is have the Vets in play 2-3 times a week with their offsprings. Paul needs his daughter back. There really is no reason why YR had to reduce Paul. Nick looks bored in his scenes. Even though Sharon has a lot going on. Her Marriage with Rey is not a priority for her. I think that YR should recalibrate. Sasha will do great. Every new actor that has left YR did better on their own, than if they stayed. MM as Amanda is the… Read more »

In an interview with Soaps.com, Kim shared on being part of the reboot: “All they have to do is ask, and I’m there.  Sure, Jenny died, but someone asked me the other day if we ever saw her body. So maybe she’s out there, somewhere… ”

Former All My Children stars and real-life duo, Kelly Ripa and Mark Consuelos are executive producers of Pine Valley along with Andrew Stearn.

So, would you like to see an alive and well Jenny Gardner, or some other role for Delaney, in the All My Children reboot? Comment below.
