There is another guest wedding planner coming to The Young and the Restless!  The last time Candis Cayne made her daytime soap opera debuts as Stich (Sean Carrigan) and Abby’s  (Melissa Ordway) nuptial adviser.  But this time, it’s Billy (Jason Thompson) and Victoria’s (Amelia Heinle) turn as they get ready to walk down the aisle again.

According to Y&R and CBS Soaps In Depth, The Price Is Right model, Gwendolyn Osborne-Smith is playing the role of a wedding planner named Evelyn for Villy’s “I do’s”.

Gwendolyn, who is British told SID:  “The character is more English than I am — quite proper. But she’s fun and upbeat as well. She’s ready for anything!”   The Price is Right model has also been a actress for many years and of course, Y&R is right across the hall from the number one game show, so she didn’t have to go far to film her scenes.

Look for Evelyn to appear in Genoa City on the upcoming February 29th episode.  So, what do you think of the casting of Gwendolyn Osborne-Smith playing Billy and Victoria’s wedding planner?  And better yet, will these nuptials even take place? Share your thoughts in the comment section below!

No. Y&R won’t let them be happy for more than 5 minutes without some trashy story. It’s a real shame too because Amelia and Jason have fantastic chemistry.

No, do not do it, Victoria. Billy will hurt you again. The reason your father, Victor, despises Billy, is because he sees himself in him. ……”Round and around and around we go-oh”. Right! For the umpteenth time.

Hi CeeCee,, seems the soaps are going into having weddings lol weddings were a very big grandiose happening during their era decades past.. when couples were built up for a very long time, and after their trip to hell and back they had million dollar weddings; those days are gone forever. This wedding stuff is no big deal to even tun into a look-see.. Weddings are the beginning of love gone wrong drama.. (and I really do not want to watch through their love gone wrong problems to their break up and journey back…. that needs to stay in past,… Read more »

I agree, SuzieQ. Weddings on soaps are not the over-the-top affair they used to be. And, I believe the expectations by the viewer are dying, along with that image. That’s one way of looking at it; but, the redundancy of this couple, as others tying the knot of wedded bliss becomes a farce. It’s offensive to me. How many times can Victoria marry Billy before she realizes that a leopard does not change its spots? By introducing a new actor in the role of Billy, does not change the character’s persona….the way his brain is wired. The writers have proven… Read more »

Hi Ceec; and su “… for the umpteenth time.” shucks… this is one of those couples tho… no matter how .. “round, we go” their journey… is layered.. emotional.. and tugs at the heartstrings when it’s good… it’s “Oh, so, goooooddddd” Billy Miller and Amelia Heinle… Magic I did not watch… David Tom or Burgess Jenkins… at least not enough… but, I knew.. it just wasn’t a game set and match… or lights camera action.. for my beloved Victoria so… to know.. that ITS back on… big hit big show… a REEL is going on… argh! and I’m missing it..… Read more »

I must say… The Abbott supremacy is once again… frontburner

Peter Bergman
Eileen Davidson
Jason Thompson
Beth Maitland

how good is this

my standard

far and away trop draw… “over” the NuMAN

need new Newman

far and away the most versatile.. will always be Victoria… she certainly has taken charge and supplanted the once heralded… threesome

“over” Victor; Nikki; Nicholas

OH, sweet Patrick…with the sweet poetic prose.
I love Amelia/Victoria. I am just not feeling it with Jason Thompson. He is one outrageous actor; I do like him. But, he is not the suave, kill me-sexy guy that gets my unmentionables in a twist, so to speak.
Perhaps, it is the fact that each time I see Victoria come into my line of vision, I see Billy Miller. So, I guess, I have to fake it? HaHa and LOL. Later, you!

Gosh would they bring back the missing great actors & stop with all the newbies? Where oh where is Mariah, Tracey Abbott, Lauren & Michael, Fen and Jill? And while we’re at it can we trash this computer security story? It’s a bore at best.

You said it CeeCee Now we need a wedding planner for someone who has been married 5 times (Ryan McNeil/Cole Howard/J.T.Helstrom/& Billy Abbott twice) how about a marriage counsellor instead? We all know they wont stay together the minute she finds out him & Phyllis are trying to bring down big daddy she’ll dump him as usual and take daddy’s side like she always does. The writers are doing the same thing with Adam & Chelsea . She packs her luggage so often every time he lies or does something she doesn’t like. No wonder her arm’s are a nice… Read more »

You are too funny, my friend. 6-pack indeed! Lol. I think, Nikki, we all realize that soaps visit the world of fantasy, now and again, as it were. But, some kind of sense should be injected into these characters. They’re all lunatics. I love Victoria; but her idolizations of her father borders on disgust. Victor can do anything despicable, murder even, but, Victoria will always find a reason to excuse her father’s actions; come hail or high water. Nothing will budge her, as nothing will budge Satan to repent walk the path of righteousness. Gee, Nikki….I sound like a preacher.… Read more »

Well CeeCee that depends on who you ask. I watched Victor(Eric B.) on a talk show and he’s just as cocky & full of himself as he is on Y & R. So I would say if you asked him if Y & R would survive when & if he died he would probably say it would go under without him but I on the other hand could see the show with Nikki going back to the bottle, Victoria in Fairview and everyone else relaxing & maybe even enjoying life. All kidding aside I think E.B. is a great actor… Read more »

The actor who plays Fen was on “Under the Dome” and he was great! Bring him back and let him dance between Mariah and Kevin! PS: I wish Stitch and Chucky [Max] leaves the country yesterday! I cannot stand Son of a Stitch and NOW there will be a baby [Maybe] with Abs! Ewww!

Oh yes he would be great with Mariah and would Kevin ever be jealous .I was never a big fan of Stitch but I could take or leave him but Max!!! That kid needs help and Stitch being a doctor should see that. I loved Fen & if they would bring someone in to play Scotty that would be great. Could you just see the story. I bet Scotty would resent Fen being with his mother & father from birth while Scotty was sent away. I just get so annoyed that they bring in newbies then if we like them… Read more »

I adore this version of Villy. Just adore. Jason and Amelia have done such a great job making me fall for this pairing again.
Which means, no, they won’t last.

Comments not well considered: Always liked Victoria. She seemed to slow down the silliness. Now, she appears to be almost asleep delivering her lines. Adam too seems to be in the background; not forceful at all. Don’t like the way the computer gig is playing out. Wish Keven and Mariah had time to let us enjoy what they did. Why do I watch? Guess we all have our reasons.

TONIGHT: 73rd Primetime Emmy Awards on CBS

Who will take home the gold at Sunday night’s 73rd annual Primetime Emmy Awards?  Well, from the looks of it .two heavy favorites going into it are Ted Lasso in the comedy categories, and The Crown in the dramatic categories, but as we have seen on previous Emmys there may be upsets afoot.

Other leading contenders through the night will include the series: The Mandalorian, WandaVision, The Handmaid’s Tale, Saturday Night Live, Lovecraft CountryThe Queen’s Gambit and Mare of Easttown.

Cedric the Entertainer will host the three-hour special on CBS beginning at 8 pm EST emanating from the Microsoft Theatre in Los Angeles.  Pandemic and all there will be a return to an opening number.

The broadcast’s executive producer, Ian Stewart, confirmed an opening number, when he previously told Deadline, the number “is going to be a lot of people participating, singing, rapping.  It’s hopefully going to be a very impactful start, a ton of fun.”

The Primetime Emmys will have nominees in attendance, with a more limited amount virtually, and those who have tickets can stay in the venue through the whole show, unlike the Grammys or Oscars were those nominated were ushered in and out.  Look for the Emmys to take place outside the theatre under a tent.

One Life to Live alum Renée  Elise Goldsberry (Ex-Evangeline) will be competing in the Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Limited or Anthology Series or Movie for her role in Hamilton.  Another OLTL alum, Jonathan Groff (Ex-Henry), is nominated for Outstanding Supporting Actor in a Limited or Anthology Series or Movie for his role in Hamilton, as well.

In the Outstanding Actor in a Drama Series, Sterling K. Brown tries to win another Emmy for his role as Randall Pearson on This Is Us.   To view all the nominees, head on over to the TV Academy’s website.

This past June, CBS also aired the 48th annual Daytime Emmy Awards in a pre-packaged show for broadcast due to Covid-19 restrictions.

So, who are you rooting for to win the gold at the 73rd annual Primetime Emmy Awards? Comment below.

GENERAL HOSPITAL: Sonny Remembers Carly Just as She Is Marrying Jason

After nine months of being “Mike”, Sonny Corinthos (Maurice Benard) had a major breakthrough as his memory is all coming back to him now (as the Celine Dion song says), and in the process the Tan-O has burned to the ground, signaling the the probable end to the Nixon Falls arc of the story.

As the story picked-up on Thursday, Nina’s (Cynthia Watros) plot to keep Sonny for herself and away from Carly majorly backfired on her.  Not only does Phyllis (Joyce Guy) now know that Nina lied about “Mike’s” identify the entire time, but Peter August (Wes Ramsey) is running wild and free heading back to Port Charles to claim his baby and Maxie (Kirsten Storms), after setting fire to the building.

Since “Mike” ran in to save Nina and got hit by a beam in the process, he is alone in the burning Tan-O enveloped by flames, but that triggers the beginning of his memory coming back.

Meanwhile, back in Port Charles, Jason (Steve Burton) and Carly (Laura Wright) are at their wedding, with the five family mob bosses present with a plot of their own and everyone wondering if Jarly will say “I do'”.    The two light a candle together for those loved ones no longer with them … ah, Sonny!

Back the burning Tan-O, Sonny is visited by the vision of the real Mike (Max Gail) who tells him it’s time for him to go home now.  A conflicted Sonny tells Mike he is very happy in Nixon Falls with Nina, but Mike tells him he needs to know his past in order to move forward.  When Sonny has flashes of his violent past it frightens him, and he says whatever family he has is better off without him in their lives.

Jax (Ingo Rademacher) tries to text Maxie while still in Nixon Falls with Nina to watch out for Peter, but she is attending and managing Carly and Sonny’s wedding, so she doesn’t pick up the phone!

Inside the Tan-O, Sonny sees a vision of woman, who when she turns and faces him is Carly. While Sonny is lying on the floor and is engulfed in flames and trapped, Mike tells Sonny he can die as “Mike” or live on as the man he truly is, Sonny.  It is then Sonny calls out “Carly!”

So, what did you think of the episode? Do you think Carly and Jason will get married? Will Sonny tells Nina he remembers? What will Nina’s next move be? Are you glad Sonny seems to have his memory back? The episode featured another strong performance by Maurice Benard.  Share your thoughts below.
