The cancer story is gawd awful.. It is about rich people with no concerns of paying for anything. It is about a family pampering and they are free to support 24 hrs a day, because nobody is working a 10 hr day or themselves struggling with life problems just to sustain their lives while coping with cancer. It is about a large family within a mile of each other to be there for her. through the day. No money problems, no obligations to keep food on the table while not being able to work. It is PHONY .. It is… Read more »

Really? You’re a debby downer are you not? It’s what soaps do are tell stories and hopefully a good ones. Soaps have always used popular characters to tell social stories. You need to lighten up because “once again” just another brasher of YR…this is personally my favorite story on YR right now. I don’t go around spewing hatred about any soaps even the ones I hate.

hi Harlee,
I did not ”hate” anything..
I spoke; it is phoney and misleading to/of ordinary cancer suffering people.
I did not ”bash” Y&R, It’s my fav.
I simply do not like the unrealistic cancer story.
I have not ”spewed” hatred, I did not mention the word.
I’m happy you are enjoying the unrealistic cancer story. 🙂

The writers at Young and the Restless worked with AMERICAN CANCER SOCIETY AND MEDICAL EXPERTS in the field to create Sharon’s breast cancer story line. AND YOUR medical qualifications are…?

Excuse me, I apologize, my bad but people just rant, rave bash YR all the time and get I get sick of it and someone needs to stand up for YR. I’m certainly not saying YR is in any condition of 100% (hasn’t been since they fired Kay in 2006…that was the start of the downfall of YR starting with LML. I know people doesn’t like JG but in my opinion I would rather watch Josh’s writings with his sometime good and sometime awful stories over Mal (hideous) Young any day! At least Josh doesn’t try to change YR and… Read more »

I have my battle. It just seems TV is making it a little more dramatic and not as serious as it really is.

In theory you are correct about certain things…however….do any of the 4 soaps have people of “normal” means on them? Honestly, the last I can recall was waaaaay back when OLTL had the Woleks as a core family. There is really not one family on any of the shows who does not have access to money, health insurance and great healthcare.

You are completely wrong! This storyline saved my cousins life as she immediately did a self exam, found a lump and caught the cancerous tumor before it spread! Her reconstruction surgery is next month! My tweet thanking Sharon was in soaps.com ! Secondly I took care of my dad, grandmother back to back as they fought cancer! Sharon breaks down and admits she’s getting best care because she’s blessed to have insurance! Your hate is what’s wrong with in the world!

Did no one tell you that cancer does not play favorites? Cancer does not care how much money you have or don’t have. Nor does Cancer care where you live or don’t live. But hey, if watching Sharon struggle with her cancer diagnosis upsets you so much then don’t watch. No one is forcing you too.

Hi Anne, I have never said I was ”upset” I have said, it’s phoney and not realistic. The soap cancer does Not represent actual people. I doubt Sharon will take a second mortgage on her house or have need to move to less expensive housing nor will she need to go into a life long debt. nor will she stress over how to pay for related needs. it is those cancer-related problems that affect many. The fear of not being able to maintain their lifestyle for their children, their families. it is a huge problem with cancer inflicted people. nothing… Read more »

I disagree with some naysayers here. If this story helps even one person or family know they’re not alone, it’s worth it. I’ve no doubt Sharon’s talents will be well used in this episode. Maybe she can finally score a Lead Actress nomination instead of the recent spate of nominees who deliver one mediocre episode and then just pose for the camera the rest of the year. I only hope it’s not gonna bring her and Nick back together. Rey has stepped up and deserves better treatment than his sister Lola has received from Kyle. Looking ahead to this!

I’m so sorry to hear what your going through, Celeste. I hope you get some comfort from the Sharon story. Hopefully you will be a long term survivor, as I’m sure Sharon will be. My best wishes and hopes for you and your loved ones.

Everyone deals with cancer differently. I would never say another person’s reactions or feelings were not legitimate. This is one person’s story.

I need Nick to be there for her in more ways than 1. He should be the only 1 who could truly comfort her.
Unless Mia comes back to meddle, Sharon and Rey do nothing for me.
I know its a serious story but its still a soap, this should bring Shick back together where they belong

Soap Smarts: How Daytime Dramas Are Using Ingenuity To Get Back Into Production During COVID-19

Daytime dramas seldom get the credit they deserve, and now they should be getting further credit for being the first back into production as the coronavirus pandemic continues to rage on, and trying to implement new ways to keep their trademarks love scenes, intimate moments and two-person scenes somehow looking in tact; even though it will be far from how it was done in the past.

In the story from the Associated Press The Bold and the Beautiful EP, and head writer, Brad Bell – who’s soap was the first one back into the studio – commented on how the show is utilizing mannequins, or real-life significant others to help pull off close contact love scenes and how it is rather groundbreaking. “We feel almost like television pioneers all these years later because we’re the first ones out, blazing new ways of producing the shows with the current safety standards, and we’re getting the job done. It’s very exciting.”

When B&B scripts written pre-coronavirus were reviewed in preparation for shooting during the pandemic now, originally all the cinches and smooches were cut. But Bell found a solution whereby a remote actor recites lines as their on-camera scene partner responds in a “low, intimate voice” and engages in “beautiful, yearning eye contact” with an off-camera doll.

As far as the soapy embrace or lip-lock, B&B cast member Katrina Bowden (Flo) has had her husband and musician Ben Jorgensen stand in for her on-screen love interest, Darin Brooks (Wyatt) since returning to taping new episodes.

Days of our Lives EP Ken Corday noted to AP:  The “learning curve” is steep. Before the pandemic, “we were producing eight, one-hour episodes a week. That’s basically 40 or 50 scenes a day.  That’s going to be basically impossible to reopen, so to speak, at that pace. We’re going to have to be more careful. So will there be five shows a week, or more? Yet to be determined.  It will certainly cost more.”

B&B and now Y&R which heads back into production next week, and the others soaps, will be using the company called Reel Health, which launched in response to the COVID-19 pandemic to serve the entertainment industry, and hires medically trained workers to monitor sets and enforce protocols developed by a company epidemiologist and in accordance with industry and government standards,

Alicia Rodis, a veteran intimacy coordinator who helped the actors guild develop guidelines for taping scenes of romance and simulated sex. shared: “Finding ways to put romance on the screen is inevitable and necessary.  At the end of the day, intimacy isn’t going anywhere. Physical intimacy is a part of the human experience. And we’re going to have to find a way to be able to continue to tell these stories, even in extraordinary circumstances.”

So, what do you think of how soaps are tackling taping episodes in the new normal to give their fans a sense of all that they love from their favorite daytime dramas during COVID-19? Share your thoughts via the comment section below.
