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.

I agree! A new Billy, chemistry and he is back home with his kids and they have to poop all over it!

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, it’s the 21st century and that stuff is not appealing, it is LAME!

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 this brilliantly by showing how hard it is for Billy to change his ways. No sooner than he walked out of death’s door, he allies himself with Phyllis ( ugh) who, herself, is so out of character, I want to pull out my hair ot and scream at my husband. LOL. Perhaps, if it were still Billy Miller, I could have forgiven him…I know, I make no sense. But, BM is BM and he will always be Billy Abbott to me. As will Michelle Stafford be Phyllis. As far as I am concerned, Gina Tognoni is not doing Phyllis justice. Gina is a great actress, just not in this role, albeit, TPTB are trying to instill some devilishness into the character…it ain’t working for me.
GH is no better…Alexis’s and Julian’s wedding is a travesty…..she’s out of her loop…..out of her dimension. PTTB are not doing Nancy any justice either, by making her act like a mindless schoolgirl instead of an older woman, whose fist thought should be her children and grandchild. Not only that, but, Julian? Again, the story of the leopard and its spots.
Now…..about our fellow poster, Dylan. I think he has assumed wrong, su…that was not nice. I know you are a girl. There are/were certain nuances about your expressions that definitely are very telling that you are, indeed, a girl….
Love you, any old way. SuzieQ. Bye…and, happy Sunday.

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..

reason I love reading posts

Victoria and Billy “are”

it’s a complete heartwrenching tearjerker angst mode

I hate that … but I relent… that’s shes Victor Newman’s daughter… when so many post… how they do not know… what a good actress .. Amelia truly is… in my standard

LOL

Billy Miller … AND emmy winner Amelia Heinle… twice regalia

deserved… not a block vote…. WON… with .. Billy Miller.. Y&R reigned supreme.. and it would not have worked without my AH

so… to know.. that .. fans are not dissing… Ms. Heinle and Jason Thompson…

woah!

YES…

my girl is front and center

Victoria has a lot of contention… character REEL

a Newman
Victor’ 1st born
involved with an Abbott
has to keep her alliance… ??? Newman vs. Abbott
has wants yearns keeps HER OWN identity

all one has to read or hear.. is Dehlia… and it’s a watershed

the past present and future for this goldmine.. is a treasure treat and telee bonafide

get it girl… grab your spotlight.. with gusto

so earned

Patrick
Patrick

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

CeeCee
CeeCee

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.

CeeCee
CeeCee

Amen, Nikki!!!!!!!!

PS. I am ready to get Natalie by that whatever knotty-hair-do she concocts and shove her into her computer. Ha!

Nikki

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 6 pack. If we need a nice Summer wedding how about getting Lauren & Michael to re-new their vows? or lets see Adam & Chelsea have a real wedding.

CeeCee
CeeCee

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. I guess I am in the wrong profession…double LOL.
I wonder if there will still be a Y&R if Victor should die. Later.

Nikki
Nikki

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 but I wish they would soften him up. Today I watched until he blackmailed Adam again and I felt so sorry for Adam (who just wants his father’s love) I turned it off.

Timmm

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!

Nikki
Nikki

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 (Dr. Anderson & Det. Mark Harding) they kill them off but if the story line stinks ( computer securty lock) we keep it. And as I said many time before they can keep that Summer. She gives my mute button exercise.

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.

Jussie Smollett Cut From Rest Of Season Of EMPIRE; Tells Cast He’s Innocent Of Charges

Following the turn of events for Jussie Smollett (Jamal Lyon, Empire) where he was arrested and charged on multiple felony counts and then posted bail, the producers of Fox’s sudsy primetime drama have decided to pull him from the remaining two episodes of the season.

“The events of the past few weeks have been incredibly emotional for all of us,” executive producers Lee Daniels, Danny Strong, Brett Mahoney, Brian Grazer, Sanaa Hamri, Francie Calfo, and Dennis Hammer said in a statement this morning following the legal fallout for Jussie Smollett and his arrest stemming from an alleged hate crime reported on January 29th that he staged on himself.

The producers went on to say: “Jussie has been an important member of our Empire family for the past five years and we care about him deeply. While these allegations are very disturbing, we are placing our trust in the legal system as the process plays out. We are also aware of the effects of this process on the cast and crew members who work on our show and to avoid further disruption on set, we have decided to remove the role of ‘Jamal’ from the final two episodes of the season.”

This happened even after Smollett returned to work on Thursday, and even after the actor/singer reportedly apologized to the cast and crew of Empire for any embarrassment the recent allegations may have caused, but at the same time, sources reported, that he maintained that he was innocent,

According to CNN: “The person at the meeting said they were shocked and dismayed that Smollett stuck to his story of innocence. For the most part, the source said, Smollett paraphrased what was in the statement that his attorney put out that afternoon, blaming the legal system and the media for his woes.”

So, what do you think of the Empire producers decision to cut Smollett from the last two shows of the season? What do you think of Jussie still maintaining his innocence to the cast? Comment below.

‘Empire’ Star Jussie Smollett Turns Himself In After Being Charged With Allegedly Filing False Police Report & Facing Criminal Charges

In major developments in the last several hours, Jussie Smollett (Jamal Lyon, Empire) turned himself in to Chicago police early Thursday morning, just hours after he was charged with disorderly conduct for allegedly staging a racist and homophobic attack against himself late in January on the streets in Chicago.

In a press conference currently being conducted by the CPD supervisor, Eddie Johnson and Commander Edward Wodnick, they revealed that Smollett turned himself in quietly and without issue.   In addition, the Chicago PD are outlining the events and timeline that led to Smollett’s arrest.

Smollett turned himself in at the Central District police station in Chicago at 5 a.m., police reported.  Thursday morning, Smollett was scheduled to appear for a bail hearing Thursday at 1:30pm central time on a felony charge of a class 4 disorderly conduct, and with that charge Smollett could face up to 1.5 years in prison.

Jussie’s attorney’s released the following statement on Wednesday night after Smollett was charged by the Chicago PD: “Like any other citizen, Mr. Smollett enjoys the presumption of innocence, particularly when there has been an investigation like this one where information, both true and false, has been repeatedly leaked. Given these circumstances, we intend to conduct a thorough investigation and to mount an aggressive defense.”

Smollett reported that he has been attacked as he was walking home around.  He claimed two masked men shouted racist and homophobic slurs as they beat him, put a noose around his neck, and poured a chemical on to him.

Enter two brothers, Ola and Abel Osundairo, who Smollett knew, who were arrested last week, but later released as suspects. The two brothers told police they helped stage the attack with Smollett.  They were paid $3,500 to orchestrate the attack by Smollett.  In their press conference, the Chicago PD revealed that they have the check as evidence were Smollett paid the brothers that sum.

The brothers left for Nigeria hours after the attack, and were arrested days later when they returned to Chicago.   On Wednesday, they testified to a grand jury. Smollett was later charged with disorderly conduct.

What do you think now about the events and the arrest of Jussie Smollett?  Comment below! But first watch the Chicago PD police department.live feed of the press conference on Smollett’s arrest.

Thad Luckinbill Back Taping At The Young and the Restless

Well, well, well! Look who is back on set at The Young and the Restless!  Thad Luckinbill, who is presumed dead as J.T. Hellstrom, was seen walking around the sound stages at CBS Television City on Wednesday.

That is because Thad is taping again at the number-one soap opera!  In a tweet put out by the series Twitter account with a photo of Thad (see below), they reveal: “Spotted On Set! J.T. Taking a coffee break. Stay tuned!”

So now the mystery begins!  Will J.T. be alive after all, which would exonerate Nikki, and her gal pals in crime, Phyllis, Sharon and Amelia from a murder rap?

Could Thad just be back to appear as a ghost?  Will he come back alive and continue his abusive ways towards Victoria?

When Luckinbill returned to the show in late 2017, fans were in for a shock when once nice guy, J.T. was turned into a spousal abuser.

So, what do you think of J.T. coming back to Genoa City … or is he? How will this story play out now that it is in the hands of head writer, Josh Griffith? Comment below,
