More than likely nobody we care about. How about an acting instructor for Eric. If he can’t scream the same line over and over again he’s lost.

A while back they showed an old clip and he used to be able to act a little. I don’t get why he is hyped so much.

Eric can’t act? My goodness…….some one has very limited knowledge. He is an amazing actor and and plays Victor to perfection.

Agreed, Moira. I despise Victor and what he represents. But Eric is indisputably a top-notch actor. For anyone to naysay that is hard to conceive. But, that’s how Becky sees Eric. We can’t tell her what to think….it’s her opinion. Sometimes our antipathy for a character blinds us to an actor’s talent.

Donald Trump

Donald Trump or Richard Simmons

Yes Erin, Richard Simmons can dance away with Nikki. Lol.

HA! Mo, that would be hilariously perfect. Maybe Trump is going to help Victor get back his company!

Or send the Latinos out of Genoa City and make it a “white man’s land” which is the core of his campaign.

Awwww, Harry….The Donald is not so bad. He’s a really nice guy…..he just speaks BIG. LOL.

Its obvious u have never had to work for him.

A new Head Writer???

We can only hope….!!!

Tom Selleck, ex Jeb Andrews

Last time she Tweeted about being all excited about working with a surprise guest star we got Meredith Baxter.

Corbin Bernsen?

@ Eileen.
And there you go, again, Eileen. How the heck do you know whether I worked for Mr. Trump or what our family relationship is? You sound just like Helen, the one who snubbed your comment, and I, feeling the sting, defended you.
You did this to me a few times before. I still have my memory intact. You sound so superior and above everyone else’s opinion. Have you regained steam? Have you worked for Mr. Trump? What most see is how he is portrayed on TV. Admittedly, he puts his foot in his mouth, but I KNOW he has a heart of gold, as do his children. Ivanka will give you the shirt off her back…involved in so many charities, as I am. Before you speak out of turn, it would behoove you to do some research.
Please do not belittle me again because, as young as I am, I will put you in the place you deserve, with all due respect.

Maybe Paul & Patty’s brother Father Todd, aka Corbin Bernsen?

Kris Kardashian please let it be her.

I hope you are right, I love Kris Kardashian. She is a smart, sassy, classy lady.

Smart and classy?? Which Kris Kardashian are you looking at? LMAO. Smart classy ladies do not whore their children out for profit.

Compared to whom, Jessica? The only reason any reputable person spends time with these people is because they are a money-making-machine…..the fad will pass. Kris Jenner is no lady…look at what she allowed her kids to do? Anyone who generates money from selling one’s body or family problems is no lady, but a gold digging, treasure-hunting, ‘castle’ climber.
If I had more fingers and toes, I would enumerate the number of men with whom she has cheated.

That would mark the end of Y&R…The KarTRASHions are overrated and overexposed trailer trash with no real talent whose stage mom Kris uses her train wreck of a family and trashy behaviour to attract gulliable viewers into helping them stretch their 15 minutes of fame because its the only way for them to get the attention they so desperately crave , and make millions of dollars off those foolish people who follow them as if they are royality which they are not…nothing against you Jennifer but i feel that family shows and proves what is all wrong with our society today…trash has replaced class…jmho

Right On…..Jimh!


Bleh! Good Lord, NO! I cannot get away from this white trash family and would rather not see any of them on my soap. The Kardashians are a symbol of American stupidity–please make them go away forever.

Hi, Harry.
My in-laws subscribe to various French and Italian magazines . We all also have RAI, which is a news/entertainment Italian ( from Italy) network. America is under the impression that the Kardashians are so well-received in Europe. The other side of that is not shown on TV here. What I read and hear through the foreign media about this said family, would make your hair stand on end and your jaw drop.

The show has enough problems, without adding a Kardashion. We dont need that trash on YR.

Eileen you sound bitter, Everybody watches The Kardashians. you dont thats ok. You need to take your meds and leave Jennifer alone. We all have opinions and its a free country. I enjoy watching The Kardashians good family and good entertainment. I love my soaps too.

If u choose to watch the Kardashions, thats ur choice. But to put this no talent, publicity whoring family on the the top rated soap would be a disaster in the making. None of them can act, they are worthless unless u just want tabloid fodder.

Sorry, Helen. Do not be offensive. You are the one who needs meds. You attacked. If Jennifer is entitled to her comment/opinion so is Eileen and everyone else. She is not the only one who considers the Kardashians as ‘a piece(s) of work’.
Not everyone watches the Kardashians. So, do not speak for the general public. Perhaps people such as you watch. More power to you.

I sooooooo agree!


I think this “Helen” is a regular poster using a second name so we dont know who he or she really is…i dont see “Helen” commenting anywhere else here!

Wendy Williams, how u doin.

lol. Good one 🙂

Please let it be Dita von Tease and let Nikki climb a pole once more. Think of the ratings!

My guess is Drewcilla she was married to Neil her name was Drewand she has been gone for a long time.sorry if I spelled the name wrong

Drew died.

Well, that would be nice, Doris. However, it’s also very doubtful as I do not think Melody would be all excited about Victoria Rowell making a cameo.
I do believe Victoria accused Melody of making racist statements.

Nope, no Drew unless they recast the former actress with someone new.

I still say; Sean Young

go out with a bang

LIVE Nikki !

Victor and Nick are so dead on arrival

HA! I forgot about Sean Young.

I sure hope it isnt her. Some liked her but I really didnt.

I lurve Sean Young. Crazy never goes out of fashion…

there is a very funny article : ie: the 30th anniversary of Blade Runner… of which she STAR’

This woman… it would seem never caught a break… her mouth, mind, and body… were just… never in sync


she’s a riveting PERSONality

she always gets my attention

when I say funny… she embodies her own energy… just captivates.. her mindset to her own beat

I Love her too

ie: OK – I don’t know how to cut and paste links:

type in Sean Young Blade Runner 30th… their is a great article from the : “Blade Runner’s Sean Young: ‘If I were a man I’d have been treated better’ “

I’m hoping for her sister, Dr. Casey Reed, but I liked the idea of a new head writer as well. Wishful thinking.

That would be delicious. Think she’ll bring Snapper, Jill’s erstwhile brother, with her?

Oh, oh…Joe. I like that one. Good call. Casey returns to save little Christian’s life; Sage’s and Nick’s baby.

Tyra Banks or. RuPaul the drag Queen.

RuPaul lol

If Ru did scenes with Miss Melody how will be able to figure out which one’s the drag queen and which one is the unretouched natural beauty. ( Love year, Miss Melody!)

You not year… ugh

The guest star will be Susan Lucci.

how about mrs c just kidding not possible…. may be patti or cloie

Probly- Dr Phil ..

I heard it was Michael E.Knight who will play a doctor. I can’t remember the soap he was in.

All My Children, he played Tad.

Thanks Eileen. I finally realized where I saw him before.

AMC, Nikki. Michael Knight played Tad Martin.

Oh now I remember him. Thanks CeeCee. Can’t wait until he starts.

You’re welcome, Nikki.

Think shes under contract to another show.4

I could be in denial, but I think this could be Michael Muhney!

You are DEFINITELY in denial! MM wont be returning.

there are “rumors” or what have you… running the mill

that Justin Hartly… may be leaving Y&R
back to prime time
to star in the remake of : “MacGyver”

his name is bandied about

ie: LOL… I’m not in denial…. I would be ecstatic and back… to Genoa City… if “HE” returns

OMG Enough of the Michael Muhney. He’s gone for good. His fans are now making people sick of him and hearing about him. Good luck to him wherever he may be. We have a super Adam Newman and except for a couple of Michael M. friends/family we all love the new Adam.

Sharon Osbourne or one of the other women from ‘The Talk.’ That’s the kind of old-timey soap cross promotion CBS still does.

The Young and the Restless and General Hospital Actress and Writer, Meg Bennett, Passes Away at 75

Meg Bennett, who had played Julia Newman and later became a writer for the top-rated daytime drama, The Young and the Restless has died at the age of 75.  The news comes from her family who shared that she lost her battle to cancer back on April 11th.

Daytime fans remember fondly, Meg’s portrayal of Victor’s (Eric Braeden)first wife. Bennett joined the show in 1980, after her first soap stint for two years in the role of Liza Walton on Search for Tomorrow.

Impressed by her story notes, the late Bill Bell, then head writer of Y&R, had Meg doing double duty acting and writing on the show from 1983-1987. When he decided to write off the character of Julia, he also wanted Meg to stick around as a writer.  Not only did this begin a whole other daytime career for Bennett, but she was not done playing Julia either. Throughout the decades, Julia would still come back to Genoa City for a visit. Most recently, Y&R fans saw Julia in 2018, and again in 2020.

Bennett also appeared on Santa Barbara and was a writer on that show as well from 1991-1993. She played the role of Megan Richardson. It was next that Meg had her longest writing stint coming to ABC’s General Hospital. Meg wrote for GH from 1993-2011.

In 1995, Bennett won her first Daytime Emmy for writing and her personal life changed after falling in love with nine-time Daytime Emmy winner, former GH head writer, Bob Guza Jr. In addition, GH also utilized Bennett for her acting skill when she was cast as the villainess Allegra Montenegro.  Meg and Bog Guza were officially married in 2004 and purchased a home once owned by Boris Karloff and Gregory Peck.

Additionally, Meg wrote for The Bold and the Beautiful 1987-1989 and later served as a executive story consultant to Brad Bell from 2002-2004.  She also wrote for Sunset Beach, Generations and GH: Night Shift throughout her writing career. She went on to win five WGA Awards for GH and Santa Barbara.

Meg is survived by her husband of 19 years, Robert Guza Jr., two stepdaughters, four grandchildren, a brother and a sister.

‘Tracker’s’ Justin Hartley on His ‘Passions’ Soap Start, “They’d Have Me With No Shirt Walking Around a Hospital for Three Weeks. It Was Ridiculous, but I Loved It.”

While Justin Hartley’s freshman drama Tracker on CBS is a bonafide smash hit, the man who is now executive producing and the lead of the complex procedural drama, had his humble show biz TV beginnings on the cult favorite soap opera, Passions.

From 2002-2006, Hartley became beloved by young soap viewers everywhere for his performance of Nicholas Foxworth Crane, better known as “Fox.”

Throughout his run on the former NBC soap opera, Hartley’s co-stars now read as who’s who of the soaps including good friend, Eric Martsolf (ex-Ethan, Passions, now Brady, DAYS), former real-life wife, Lindsay Korman (ex-Theresa, Passions), Brook Kerr (ex-Whitney, Passions, now Portia, General Hospital) and even the late, great Andrea Evans (ex-Rebecca, Passions, and ex-Tina One Life to Live).

In a look-back at some of the memorable roles of his career at TV Insider including as Adam Newman on The Young and the Restless, the feature has some notable quotes from Justin.

The one that struck us the most was when Hartley was speaking about his time on Passions, which for anyone who knows the show, saw him most of the time shirtless in a scene for absolutely no apparent reason. Looks like Justin agrees with that assessment too, sharing, “They’d have me with no shirt walking around a hospital for three weeks. It was ridiculous, but I loved it.”

Meanwhile, tonight on an all-new episode of Tracker (9pm ET/PT) titled “Aurora”, when a widower offers a reward to find his only daughter who disappeared three years ago and is presumed dead, Colter (Hartley) agrees to help track her down. After the missing girl’s father shows Colter a newspaper photo from a recent county fair he’s convinced is her, Colter’s search leads him into the world of amateur ghost hunting and paranormal activity.

“Aurora” is directed by none other than Hartley’s former This Is Us co-star Jon Huertas (ex-Miquel).  In fact, Huertas told TV Insider, he wouldn’t wait to direct Justin again, as he did on the former NBC drama in which they both appeared.

Huertas expressed: “I’ll be honest, Justin was one of my favorite actors on the show to watch, to work with, and to direct. I was able to do all of that on This Is Us. And so when the opportunity came up, Ken Olin was like, ‘Hey, you interested in directing on this show, Tracker?’ I was like, “Absolutely. I get to work with Justin again.”‘

So, do you remember Justin as Fox Crane mostly walking around plenty of times shirtless in story as soap hunks do, but for no particular reason? Are you going to catch ‘Tracker’ tonight which features a behind the scenes reunion and collaboration between Jon Huertas and Justin? Comment below.

The women from the the cul-de-sac at Seaview Circle, stepped out last week as the Los Angeles Ballet celebrated its season 18 gala with ceremonies at the Beverly Wilshire Hotel in Beverly Hills.

Los Angeles Ballet is known for classical, contemporary, romantic and neoclassical ballets, for pioneering new works and for presenting relevant works by many of today’s most innovative dance-makers. LAB’s original production of The Nutcracker is an annual holiday favorite for Los Angeles residents and regional, national and international visitors.

Led by Artistic Director Melissa Barak, LAB performs in multiple theater venues across LA County including The Broad Stage in Santa Monica, Royce Hall at UCLA, Redondo Beach Performing Arts Center, Pasadena Civic Auditorium and Dolby Theatre in Hollywood. As part of its mission, LAB wants to expand people’s knowledge of and nurture a love for ballet.

Longtime fans of Donna Mills also know that when early in her career she was a dancer. In fact, when she got her first soap opera gig as a nightclub singer named “Rocket” on Secret Storm, Mills was shocked.

In a 2015 interview with Smashing Interviews Magazine Donna recounted, “I’m not a singer. I was a dancer. Why they chose me to be a nightclub singer, I have no idea, and I actually sang on the show.”

So, glad to see Donna and Joan stepping out together in support of the Los Angeles Ballet? Miss Knots Landing’s Abby and Val? Let us know via the comment section below.
