Photo Credit: Kathy Hutchins

Carolyn Conwell who from 1980-2004 played Mary Williams on The Young and the Restless had died at the age of 82.  Her long time TV son, Doug Davidson (Paul Williams) was very close to Carolyn, and in fact, in many interviews with us over the years cited her performances and work as some of the best he has ever seen or had the pleasure to work with during his career.

Within the last 24 hours, Davidson took to his Facebook page to post a special heartfelt message to his fans and colleagues, after attending Conwell’s funeral this past Sunday.

Davidson stated,  “As some of you might know Carolyn Conwell (Mary Williams) passed. I attended her funeral yesterday and her two sons and daughter were in attendance. She was the finest actor I have ever known and such a giving soul. Her progeny are fabulous people. A credit to a life well lived. I truly can’t say enough about her. I love her and miss her presence. God bless her and her family.”

We know many long time fans of Y&R remember many of the scenes were Mary was meddling in the lives of her children, but always loved them deeply.    Let us know your thoughts on the passing of Conwell and Davidson’s message!

I know she has not been mentioned on the soap in years they even tried to get her back several years ago with the Patty saga but I really think it would be nice if they wrote her death in on Y&R and gave us some memorable moments. She was so good that I use to scream at the TV she drove me so nuts! RIP a truly fine actress.

I agree. They could do it and have it all make sense. Poor Paul, though. Another loss for the character.

I remember her too. It seems like it was so much longer than 2004 when she was last on. Same with the Gina character.

Can’t you just smell the sauerkraut and spareribs cooking from heaven? I agree they should write her death into the show and give Mary Williams a proper send off. It would be the classy thing to do considering the character still has a connection to GC via Paul. But I guess it depends on what they are going to with DD. Are they keeping him or preparing for him to ride off into sunset with Christine? At the very least they should dedicate a show in her memory.

That is what I am worried about when they asked LB to stick around for a while Heather is gone I mean it is no secret I like DD. Even though the character of Avery is younger then he I was hoping that would be the direction they would go with Paul not Nick the new rock star. Go check out on You tube some scenes with Paul and his mother no one could meddle like her.

I remember her so well. I think the show should do something for hew. I heard the Doug tried to get her to come back, but (as I recall) she said she was done with acting! RIP Carolyn .

I wondered why there was not a Mary Williams recast at least during that horrid crazy Patty Williams/Dr. Emily storyline. Well, it would be hard to find someone to replace Ms. Conwell. Ms. Conwell played Mary Williams so well. Mary was one of those characters the grounded the show among the wealthy Newman/Abbott sagas. I wish we would have seen more of the Williams family develop. Remember in the 1980s when Paul was married to Lauren and mary just had a field day with her! Sadly, MAB blew a chance for such a good story of redemption for Paul and… Read more »

I loved the passion and realness she brought to the Y&R canvas and missed her presence in Paul’s life these past several years. Thank you, Mrs. Conwell, for everything! Best to those she leaves behind.

‘Dr. Oz Show’ Taken Off the Air in NY and PA Due to Senate Run; Daphne Oz ‘The Good Dish’ to Fill Time Slot

In light of his announcement that he will be running as a republican senate candidate in the state of Pennsylvania, Dr Oz’s daytime talk and medical show, The Dr. Oz Show, is being taken off the air in key markets in New York and Pennsylvania, according to the Fox Station Group.

According to Deadline’s sources, Fox TV Stations proceeded with pulling the Sony Pictures TV-distributed syndicated series because of the prospect of being forced to give other political candidates running in Pennsylvania equal time, expressing that it “would be a nightmare for us, there was no way we were going to be able to do that.”

In its place, look for Dr. Oz’s daughter, Daphne Oz, to be the fill-in with her show.

Starting on January 18th, Daphne’s The Good Dish, will take over the time slot during the duration of her father’s political campaign.  This potentially could go all the way through November of 2022, if Oz remains in the race through election day.

Last fall, Fox TV Stations renewed The Dr. Oz Show for two more years which gave it life through 2023.

So, do you think more stations will go bye-bye and have The Dr. Oz show pulled? What do you think of daughter Daphne’s series as the fill-in? Comment below.

General Hospital Has No Immediate Plans to Recast the Role of Jason Morgan Following Steve Burton’s Departure

According to a report from Variety, ABC’s General Hospital is not planning on recasting the role of Jason Morgan at this time, following the exit of Steve Burton.

The two-time Daytime Emmy winning star was let-go from the soap after not adhering to their Covid-19 vaccine mandate.

The mandate went into effect on November 1st and in story, the series wrote Burton out, but still left wiggle room for the character to return.

Jason was buried under a rubble when a cave collapsed on top of him, while he was trying to apprehend arch-villain, Peter August (Wes Ramsey).

In his exit announcement on Instagram, Burton did express: “Maybe one day if these mandates are lifted, I can return and finish my career as Jason Morgan.”  Steve had played the role of Jason since 1991, but with a four-year break at Y&R, before returning to the role in 2017.

Now whether down the line, GH does eventually recast Jason remains to be seen.

So, it looks like Jason will be off the canvas for awhile, and Port Charles will continue to grieve for him.

So, what are your thoughts? Should GH leave Jason off the canvas? Should they recast down the line?  Comment below.
