Anthony Morina (EP) and Josh Griffith (Co-EP and Head Writer) of The Young and the Restless have issued a joint statement on the casting of Sasha Calle as the new ‘Supergirl’ in the upcoming DC Universe film, The Flash.

Y&R discovered Calle for the role of Lola Rosales on the CBS daytime drama series, where she became an integral part of the Latino family drama in Genoa City.

Morina and Griffith shared: “On behalf of everyone at The Young and the Restless, we’d like to congratulate Sasha Calle on making history and being chosen to play the first Latina ‘Supergirl’. The role of ‘Supergirl’ is a perfect fit for someone of Sasha’s immense talent and we wish her all the best as she takes on this groundbreaking role.”

The two executives do not however address at this juncture what will happen to the role of Lola, when Calle steps away from the role.  Will they recast Lola, or write her out?

Let us know if you think the show should recast Lola, and your thoughts on the joint statement congratulating Sasha from Tony and Josh in the comment section below.

Here’s what I think If the role of Lola Rosales is being recast I would Lola Rosales go in a different direction I would like to see Lola Rosales make a change from being a business owner of a restaurant to become a successful fashion designer in the corporate world and have a romance with Theo Vanderway or a returning existing character or a new character or you can put Sasha Calle off contract and put Sasha Calle on recurring staus

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.

I would love to see Young and the Restless recast Lola Rosales in a new direction and maybe work together with Phyllis and take over the hotel

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.

Run don’t walk never look back and Congrats! I hear the newest trick these two bozo’s are pulling is a romance with PB who is 67 and CH who is 30! Yes we all want to watch a old man a long time vet come off as a dirty old man ! Ugh ! 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 »

The Adam and Chelsea story is creepy, the writers are making Sharon look pathetic and the worst mother in history. If anyone else gets fired, please make it Victoria!

I feel the show should recast Lola Rosales even though Sasha Calle has been cast as Supergirl I think The Young and the Restless should take Lola Rosales in a new direction by either reuniting with Theo or ex Kyle or reunite Lola with a existing character by bring back to the canvas or reunite Lola with a new character I want The Young and the restless find an actress the same way they find Sasha to search for a Latina actress in the recast of Lola Rosales on the Young and the restless I hope that comes true if… Read more »

Anne Heche Final Autopsy Reveals No illegal Substances in Her System at the Time of Fatal Car Crash

The final autopsy report is in, which puts a bit more into perspective what happened to Daytime Emmy winner, Anne Heche (ex-Vicky/Marley, Another World), when she crashed her car into a home back in August, which ultimately took her life.

It has been suggested for months that Heche was impaired while driving erratically on August 5th, which ultimately caused her to crash and suffer a life-ending brain injury.

However, the L.A. County medical examiner-coroner‘s office revealed that the final toxicology results (concluded from blood and urine tests taken when Heche went to the hospital) showed the presence of benzoylecgonine, an inactive metabolite of cocaine. That indicates past use, the examiner confirmed. Results also showed prior use of marijuana, but not at the time of injury. There was no alcohol detected in Heche’s system either.

There had been speculation that Anne was inebriated at the time of the accident which was further fueled by an image that appeared to show a liquor bottle in the front seat of her vehicle.  In addition, the Fentanyl detected in Heche’s system was administered in the hospital after her injuries were sustained.

The medical examiner had determined that Anne died of inhalation and thermal injuries. She was trapped in her Mini Cooper for around 30 minutes before she was rescued by first responders. The official report lists sternal fracture due to blunt trauma as another “significant condition.”

Heche was hospitalized immediately following the fiery car crash. She went into a coma and was declared brain dead the evening of August 11th.  However, her body was kept on life support until August 14th when her organ recipients had been found.  She was 53-years-old at the time of her death.

What do you think about the autopsy report on the death of Anne Heche and the ending of such a talented and respected actress? Comment below.

Tony Khan Confirms William Regal’s Exit from AEW to Return to WWE

On Wednesday, ahead of tonight’s AEW Dynamite on TBS, and to promote Saturday’s Ring of Honor Final Battle pay-per-view, AEW President Tony Khan spoke with the media and answered questions on several topics.

Chief among them is the status of William Regal who reportedly is heading back to the WWE.  In story, Regal was taken out by MJF on last week’s AEW Dynamite, after Regal helped MJF become the AEW World Champion during the main event at the Full Gear pay-per-view in November.   During last week’s episode, Regal was carried out of the ring by stretcher after being clobbered in the head from behind with brass knuckles by the new champ in another swerve.

Today on the media call, Khan reportedly explained the Regal situation sharing that Regal approached AEW executive Megha Parekh and requested to be released form his contract so he could go back and work his “golden years” coaching his son, Charlie Dempsey, and to the WWE.

This all went down around the time Khan was with his mother in Toronto, who was undergoing a major operation when doctors found that she had a spot on her heart and if the spot was removed, that it the best chance of stopping the strokes she was having.  She has already had two strokes, previously.

During this time, Khan arranged a call with Regal and shared that Regal had good intentions for wanting to go back. He was very empathic to the situation, given what he was going through with his mother and his own family at the time.

Khan added that Regal is still with AEW through the holidays, but he wishes William all the best and that it was “hard to see him go”, and they’re going to make some on-screen sacrifices to help him do the right thing for his family.  In addition, Regal’s release was on the condition that he could not be on TV next year, meaning Regal could then only work behind the scenes at WWE, anyway.

Tonight on ‘Dynamite’ look for Khan to address the William Regal situation.

Reports from Pro Wrestling.net, Fightful.com, David Bixenspan

So, what do you think of William Regal obtaining his release from AEW to go coach his son and return behind the scenes to work with the WWE in 2023? Share your thoughts via the comment section below.
