“Y&R’s” Kristoff St. John was a guest last night on Buzzworthy Radio and make some interesting and insightful comments.  The Daytime Emmy winning actor shared his thoughts on the state of “Y&R” storytelling.  One quote in particular as documented by We Love Soaps this morning, on how the the Rafe/Adam story point had played out.

St. John stated: “If you look at the storyline on our show with Adam and Rafe. That whole thing peted out and turned out to be such a crock. And forgive me for going there with it, but if you’re giong to do a gay storyline on the show, then do something topical and current. And what could be more topical than Proposition 8 in California but doing a same sex marriage thing. You don’t have to go there with that character whose going through so many things – being blind, screwing over Victor, doing the thing with Mary Jane, the baby with Ashley – man, come on. Don’t cheat the audience out of a really hot, good storyline that would reflect what is actually happening out there in our world and in our nation.”
