I hope this means he’s being recast on Y&R. A non-speaking part as vampire food is the best career choice for this guy, at least until he invests in some serious acting lessons.
And “Carmine” can go with him and be dessert. This show needs some serious recasting in the younger set.

Does this portend of things to come for Kyle in Genoa City? While I do nto agree with the SORAS of the character, I would like to see Jack Abbott be able to have some kind of relationship with his son. He is the only 100 percent Abbott grandchild on the canvas anymore to be invovled with business and such. Billy’s baby is an infant… for now. (You will recall Ashley is not a true Abbott though raised by John who I do not think ever knew the truth.) And Abby is a Newman, too.

Can’t wait for the Vamp Diaries’ new season! Vampire Elena better choose Damon! I hope Caroline remains with Tyler and not Klaus!

TAKE HIM, PLEASE!! This kid cannot act!!! Worst addition to “Y & R” ever – bring back the younger Kyle and de-SORAS him!!!

I agree. Do you also see the resemblance to Michael Muhney? It is so obvious on the previous page where Blake Hood’s story is just below Michael Muhney’s.

Why oh WHY did they cast this guy when he looks so much like Adam? I have to keep a scorecard when they are both on the screen or I get confused. 🙂

Bart stole my line! 😉 Such great news! I sure hope he departs for some other show and soon!!! I will never understand why they hired someone who looks so much like MM. Not to mention it certainly can’t be because of his acting talent.

Best wishes, Blake. Just want you to get your training elsewhere.

The character should never have been SORAS’ed in the first place, BJ – MAB has screwed up so many timelines because of unnecessary SORAS’ing!!

Wow! People are just so negative. Disappointed when all soap fans do is complain and criticize.
I think it’s great that he got the part on Vampire Diaries! It’s a popular show and that’s a pretty big deal. I think it’s a boon to soaps when actors from soaps get parts on primetime as well and can show they are just as good!
And I think Blake is adorable as Kyle. I love the scenes with him and Jack. I think he could be written for better- give him something more to do.

I hope he stays there. He has not been an asset on Y&R.

From what I have read, he will only have a short stay on The Vampire Diaries. He’s most likely been hired to be an inevitable victim as most don’t make it out of Mystic Falls alive. Plus this show has way too many characters on it.

Lauralee Bell On Her 35th Anniversary With Y&R: “My Hope For Cricket Is To Smile The Way She Used To & Chill Whenever Possible.”

Congratulations are in order this Sunday to Lauralee Bell who is celebrating her 35th anniversary with The Young and the Restless.  Hard to believe, it’s been 35 years since the perils of a young Cricket became front and center and those young love stories with Danny (Michael Damian), Phillip (Thom Bierdz) and eventually, Paul ( Doug Davidson).

As Cricket matured, so to was the decision to now call the character by her birth name, Christine.  After all, she became quite the legal eagle! For over three and a half decades with time-off in between, Lauralee has shared memorable storylines with the amazing Tricia Cast, and the late Jeanne Cooper as Nina and Katherine, and let’s not forget Michael Baldwin, played by Christian LeBlanc, to name just a few/

In a few tweets on Sunday, Lauralee acknowledged the day stating: “We all couldn’t do what we love to do without the viewers so thanks to them!”  She followed that up with a tweet filled with photos of herself and her co-stars throughout the years ,and some self-effacing humor stating: “Wasn’t going to post for YR anniversary, because I’m not one to put attention on me but no denying these people have made my life better. Thanks to crew & fans and my hope for Cricket is to smile the way she used to & chill whenever possible”

As viewers know, Lauralee is the daughter of Y&R creators, the late, great Bill Bell and his wife, Lee Phillip Bell.  We are sure Bill is smiling today for Lauralee and proud of this accomplishment.

Share your congrats for Lauralee on this milestone via the comment section below.  Then let us know your most memorable or favorite Cricket/Christine moment on the CBS Daytime drama series.

GH’s Vinessa Antoine Lands Primetime Series Will Make Canadian TV History!

Fantastic news for General Hospital favorite, Vinessa Antoine (Jordan)! The talented actress had landed the leading role in the primetime Canadian series, Diggstown!

The legal drama is scheduled to air this fall.  In Diggstown, Antoine will play Marcie Diggs, a top corporate lawyer who decides to dedicate herself to a legal aid office in Dartmouth, Nova Scotia.

This casting news will make Vinessa a part of Canadian TV history as the first Black Canadian actress to star in a prime-time drama on legacy network television, CBC.

Antoine spoke to the Toronto Star about her starring role, “When I first read the script I was really attracted to the notion that she was a corporate lawyer and she believed in the system. And when that crashed for her, life nudged her to do something extraordinary. And because I’m a woman of color, so many things connected. She’s complex, not stereotypical, and that’s refreshing.”

However as suspected, and according to the Toronto Star: “General Hospital fans will not be happy to learn that Antoine, who has been with the show since 2014, will no longer be a series regular when she starts shooting Diggstown in August.”

So, excited to hear Vinessa has been cast in a leading primetime series?  Comment below!
