Y&R’s Michael Mealor on Kyle’s Relationship Woes: “He’s Appalled that Summer Openly Lied to Him. So, a Wall Has Gone Up”

If you caught Monday’s episode. and have seen this week’s promo for The Young and the Restless, you know what lies ahead. It looks like the end of Skyle, as we know it, certainly for now.

Kyle (Michael Mealor) wants a formal separation from his wife, Summer (Allison Lanier).  He cannot get past what their moms did to each other and how Summer kept quiet about Phyllis (Michelle Stafford) being alive, which sent his mother, Diane (Susan Walters) to prison.

On Y&R, Kyle doesn’t want to hear Summer’s explanations of desperation to save her mother.  He announces, “I think we need some time … to see what’s left, if anything.”  He actually wants her out of the house, especially when Summer tells Kyle that Diane is guilty of much more than Phyllis is.


Kyle continues to lash out and that sets the stage for him hitting the sheets with scheming Audra.  In the latest issue of Soap Opera Digest on newsstands now, Mealor shared Kyle’s state of mind: “He knows right from wrong in this situation (with Phyllis), and he’s appalled that Summer openly lied to him. So a wall has gone up and he’s actually cold toward her and she’s not handling it well.  He thinks a separation would allow them to process things and maybe even heal.”

But when a liquored up Kyle chats with Audra (Zuleyka Silver) at the GCAC bar, Mealor shared, “He’s buried in pain and she’s distracting him from that.”

Since yesterday’s episode of Y&R and Kyle’s treatment of Summer, soap social media has been a bit abuzz of who is in the wrong and who is in the right.  Meanwhile, Alison Lanier took to Twitter and shared this week’s Y&R promo with Kyle having sex with Audra, stating, “Well, THAT didn’t take long!”

So, do you hope a reconciliation for Kyle and Summer happens sooner than later? Is it all too much water under the bridge, now that Kyle will have slept with Audra? Are you Team Skyle or Team ‘Get a New Life’ for Summer and Kyle? Share your thoughts in the comment section below.

Well,Kyle just slept with the devils mistress! That will solve a lot!

The Devil’s Mistress! I love it. Well, karma is a bitch and so is Audra. He choose the wrong woman to cheat with- she will make him pay. Vile Kyle has never been a good man. He betrayed his father by teaming up with Victor and he cheated on Lola when they were married with Summer. And Lola did nothing to deserve his shabby treatment.

Not sure I like either of them that much any more, but I hate Kyle’s ‘holier than thou’ attitude and I did love Summer letting him have it about the fact that his mother had done worse in leaving him at a young age and faking her death. Not saying there isn’t enough blame to go around, and that Kyle doesn’t have a right to be angry, but he has a short memory. He even blamed Summer for his mother’s lie about Harrison when Summer did not know Diane was going to do that.

I probably lean towards Summer because I will always be on Team Phyllis, no matter what; and I still hate Diane. May not be logical but there it is. Besides Kyle IS coming across so arrogant and is getting on my last nerve.

I totally agree with everything you said.
On top of all that, it’s amazing how little Kyle cares about Harrison losing yet another mother.
I hope that Kyle and his horrible mother live happily ever after alone together.

Kyle can’t act himself out of a paper bag so I guess sheet scenes are a last resort.

He is horrible in that role!

He is. He looks like he’s acting.

Kyle really needs to wear a bow tie. It would fit his dandy, pompous, swarmy persona.

And here it is—the same old same old soap cure-all. Cheat on your partner to solve your problems—with a fortune-climbing slut to boot, and vice versa.
The only good thing here will be to see Chance with Summer—no Sharon, please!! Enough of the Mommy syndrome.
Kyle is a spoiled brat—Do as I say not as I do. Summer may be wrong; but what child would have given her/his mother up? Of all people, Kyle should be the most understanding.
Aside—Diane’s manipulating Jack is finally out in the open ( to the viewer)—she tells him how to run the company and when to have business-related meetings. Her confidence is astronomical. Jack is of a certain age, who should have the sense of “ I smell a rat” talent by now. He’s in his 70’s—having had more women than Casanova.

Jack is a gullible old man who is going to bite his lower lip off…
His mind is too gone to talk about a prenuptial..

This Summer is too wimpy, no spark no fire, and is blah in compersion to the Summer that sexed Billy.. can’t imagine this Summer doing Billy or stealing a car LOL ..

I know, SusieQ. NuSummer is not the go-getter or catch-me-if-you-can kind of Calamity Jane that Hunter was—but, she can act, in my opinion—and, you’re right—I can’t see her pulling any stunts, except to protect her mother.
I’m pretty fiery myself–but, I’m too wimpy to steal a car.
–I’d never shack up with someone old enough to be my father either—that’s neither brave nor calamitous. That’s just gross. LOL-
of course, we always wish for the “old” characters to return, but nuSummer is tolerable compared to nuTrina. Right?

Celia–the casting of some soap women is horrible in comparison to the soap men… Audira in Y&R is gawdawful…..The Diane casting was good..
Essme is good too…luv for Spencer, I believe he Nikiols, would never date nuTrina in real life therefore no chem on screen…he is a great actor to play the role as Trina’s love interest

I know bring Hunter King back

General Hospital Alum Richard Simmons ‘Not Interested’ In Biopic with Pauly Shore Portraying Him

Former General Hospital guest star and fitness guru, the reclusive Richard Simmons, has come forward and addressed actor and comedian, Pauly Shore’s wish to play the 70’s and 80’s pop culture icon in a biopic about his life.

Shore previously took to social media and on X shared a side-by-side of him and Simmons. Accompanying the post, Pauly expressed: I’ve noticed the reactions to me playing #RichardSimmons in a biopic. I heard he’s living in Big Bear. We’ve been playing phone tag (yes, he has a phone). I’m trying to make it happen, you guys. In the meantime, hit up all the big producers. I’ll see you at @TheAcademy 2025!”

However, TMZ’s sources are reporting on Saturday that Simmons is not in favor of Shore playing him in a film or anyone else, or any biopic on his life.

The outlet shared that Richard’s reaction was that he was aware of the effort behind a biopic, mostly spear-headed by Pauly. but that he just doesn’t want to be involved. Simmons also added that he likes Pauly a lot, but he’s not biting, despite the public’s urging on social media about the idea of a movie on his life.

Born Milton Teagle “Richard” Simmons, he became part of the public conscious back in the 70’s and 80’s with exercise studios and the ability to have his clients lose weight. any of them were celebrities. Simmons himself admitted to at one time being overweight, and getting into fitness helped him maintain a healthy living style and he wanted to help others.

Later, he began a four-year recurring run on General Hospital playing himself from 1979-1983.  Simmons returned to the show in 2013 for the Nurses’ Ball to taunt Lucy (Lynn Herring). He also was host of the Emmy-award winning, The Richard Simmons Show, which focused on personal health, fitness, exercise, and healthy cooking.  Over the last several years, Simmons has withdrawn from public life.

What would you think of a Richard Simmons biopic and if it included some moments in front of the camera and behind the scenes of what went down when he appeared on GH? Do you think it will ever happen given Simmons current position on the matter? Let us know in the comment section.

Promising news for General Hospital’s John J. York (Mac Scorpio). The actor who went public with his health battle shared Friday on Good Morning America that a life-saving blood stem cell transplant donor may have been located.

An emotional York told GMA, “I believe they found a match, perfect match, which will make me cry.  So we’re going to start our testing and do all that kind of stuff coming up here in about a week, and then I believe the transplant will happen, fingers crossed, in November.”

Through his association with the Be The Match organization, York located the now potential donor to help in his fight against myelodysplastic syndrome and multiple smoldering myeloma, two blood and bone marrow disorders. “

York went on to explain the difficulties he faced in trying to find a match: “Many of my family members were tested and most of them were 6 out of 12; apparently there’s markers that have to be reached. So they were on standby.”

When asked just what the GH fan favorite would want to say if given the opportunity to speak to the donor that appears to be a match, in tears, John expressed: “Thank you for saving my life. For letting me spend more time with my wife and my daughter and my son-in-law and my grandchildren and seeing this beautiful blue sky.”

John has played Mac Scorpio for 32 years and until recently had kept his battle with these two blood cancers private, but came forward to clarify why he is taking time away from GH, and how he is been trying to find a life-saving donor match.

Watch York’s segment from GMA below.
