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 »

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.

GH’s Wes Ramsey Makes Statement on Criticism, Social Media, and Professionalism

General Hospital’s Wes Ramsey, who portrays polarizing character, Peter August on the ABC daytime drama series, responded to recent take on his role from cast mate, Tristan Rogers (Scorpio) when a video made its way through social media.

The video was from a Cameo appearance, where Rogers offered an assessment of the Peter August storyline and expressed that while he knows Ramsey is a strong actor, he felt he was “wrong for the character” being that Peter was the son of the evil Faison played by Anders Hove.

Rogers also came to the defense of Ramsey and shared: “Don’t be too hard on Wes Ramsey. He’s got himself into a horrible storyline, and the storyline is the fault of the show. What they’ve literally done is they’ve painted themselves into a corner, and they don’t know how to get out of it.”

Currently, Peter’s story is front and center on GH with his wedding to Maxie (Kirsten Storms), and the fallout from all of the character’s dirty deeds.

Now Ramsey took to his Instagram account to address what transpired and his thoughts on the perils of social media, professionalism and acting, expressing: “Actors are storytellers, shapeshifters, chameleons. We’re also in the business of cultivating trust bc that’s how the best work is brought to life. We have to trust our imaginations, our instincts. We have to trust our fellow actors, because without them, there’s no scene to play. In the collaborative efforts of bringing any show to life, we also have to trust our directors each day to steer the arch of our story (like a conductor with a symphony) & trust our writers who are tasked with composing the symphonies we play out. I came up in a world of classical theater, where trusting the play, text, story is essential to the tightrope balancing act of making magic.  You will never hear me critique (on any public platform) the people responsible for the creative opportunities I enjoy each day. Without the trust of my writers, directors, producers & fellow actors, it would be impossible to live out my dreams. My job (& my only job) is to bring fearlessness, playfulness & passionate conviction to what has been created for me. My aim is to stretch myself (beyond the limits of where I think my boundaries may lye) each time I’m entrusted with material that allows those boundaries to be tested.

 

Every actor must believe they are the right person for their part or they will never achieve their potential, let alone surpass it. I was raised a gentleman & have two wonderful parents to thank for that, however, my polite personality (while rendering me easy to get along with on set) should have little bearing on my caliber of performance nor my castability as a professional.  I am leery of the pitfalls of social media & believe there are advantages to maintaining some mystery (even as a public figure) but I will always defend & protect what I hold dear (my job & my career) when they are publicly challenged, especially by those closest to me, whom I love & respect. Please know I bear no ill will. As a society, we are all still learning the full ramifications of living in an internet dominated culture. To all my many fans out there who offer encouragement & support, I hear you & am grateful for you. I’m having a blast… 🙂. Onward we go.”
