  1. https://daytimeconfidential.com/2017/08/10/sally-sussman-speaks-out-on-young-and-restless-and-lesbian-love-story Some excerpts: Daytime Confidential: Mariah and Tessa kissed last week on The Young and the Restless. What was the genesis behind telling a story where two seemingly straight women fall in love? Sally Sussman: When I came into Y&R last September, I had one day's notice to start the job. I had been traveling in France with my feature documentary [Midnight Return: The Story of Billy Hayes and Turkey], and hadn't been watching the show for several years. So, I had nothing prepared and never have started a job like that before. But because of the change happening so fast, I had to jump in with both feet. While starting to write the daily shows, I came up with several stories that I pitched the network; one of which is the love story between Mariah and a new character named Tessa. This is a love story; it's not a gay story. It's about falling in love with a person, not a gender. It is about Mariah and Tessa's self-discovery and it catches them both off guard. People fall in love unexpectedly for all sorts of reasons. Some they understand; some they don't. DC: Per usual with LGBT stories on daytime, some fans are loudly voicing their disapproval on social media. Did you anticipate this? SS: Before the kiss actually aired and the audience was starting to sense where the story was going, I was told by CBS that they had been getting a lot of negative comments. Because I had been away from the daytime genre for 10 years, and was aware that many other soaps had done stories featuring LGBT characters — some as long as 20 years ago — I was honestly a little taken aback by the depth of the negativity. It made me quite sad. When I created Generations, my goal was to make the African-American families where you didn't see race. I had hoped with this story people wouldn't just see gender; they'd feel the honest love between the characters. DC: Y&R fans on social media are questioning the timing of your decision to retire and the launch of the story. Do you regret not being able to stay on and tell the story yourself? SS: The two events are not related; this storyline was approved last October. The material airing now was written in May because the show is three months ahead of air. I know a lot of fans got upset by the only interview I did while at Y&R, which was last October with Michael Logan. He had been faithfully watching the show throughout all the head writer changes and really wanted answers to the loose ends that were left by my predecessor. What he didn't know is that night I had to fly to Vancouver where my 61-year-old brother just died suddenly and unexpectedly. He was my last surviving family member and it devastated me. Thinking about future stories for Y&R was the furthest thing from my mind, so I just made up a bunch of stuff because I hadn't gotten the chance to write a long-term yet. At that point, I honestly didn't think I could make six months in the job. So I'm thrilled to have made it to one year. Also...Sally lets folks know that this was ALL HER IDEAS and she didn't have a bunch of network interference, she was in TOTAL control "But I take responsibility for every scene in every episode as it was all done by me. As head writer you can't farm this work out to your writers or anyone else; to do this job properly you need to be in the trenches on every episode and every scene. So if the audience liked what they saw, great. If they hated what they saw, then I feel badly and disappointed but I know it goes with the territory. I adored my writing team, most of whom I'd never worked with before. They were fantastic to work with, but your writers don't make up the shows. They look to you to guide them and tell them what is in each episode. The same goes for the network and Sony. They give notes of course and most of their notes are actually very helpful and thoughtful. I never had any issues with the network or their input; we had great long-term story meetings, lots of good back/forth; lots of laughter."
  2. It is really a damn shame that I don't find a single man on this show appealing. Mal certainly has his work cut out for him. Good luck.
  3. https://www.tvinsider.com/320365/the-young-and-the-restless-daniel-goddard-daytime/ AN EXCERPT: You and Christel have performed all this with remarkable subtlety and restraint. It’s the lack of fireworks that makes the story unique. Christel and I talked a lot about that. Don’t forget, Lily slept with Joe Clark twice and there was no alcohol involved, so there’s a level of guilt on her part that stops her from coming at Cane with a vengeance. She’s not squeaky clean and this has allowed the humanity to play out, as opposed to it being all about anger and retaliation. Whenever you see the submissions for the Daytime Emmy acting awards, it’s always about the guy yelling or the girl crying hysterically. I’m not a big fan of that. I operate within a more quiet, grey area. I don’t get loud until and unless I absolutely need to. Ahhh yes because that's exactly what you want from the leading frontburner story on a daytime drama - no fireworks, muted emotions and whipers.
  4. Paraphrased from SOD: Phyllis meets with shady businessman Ben Hochman and suggests to him that Victoria is single and he should try to charm her to buy a piece of Brash & Sassy. He asks Victoria out to dinner and she agrees. They wake up in bed together and because of Victoria's head injury she doesn't know what happened. Hilary sees them and tells Jack who uses the info to try to break up Billy and Phyllis. So that makes two fake sexual harassment claims (Gloria/Jack and Cane/Juliet) and now two instances of people waking up in bed and not knowing what happened (Cane/Juliet being first) in a span of like 6 months. This show is really playing fast and loose with consent and just shady sexual situation these days. I don't like it.
  5. I don't know if anyone is behind or if it is playing this week yet so I'm going to post this over here just in case... Per SOD... Just as Cane makes inroads with Lily and promise no more secrets...the tech from LA returns...blackmails Cane over the fact he set up Billy. In order to keep him silent (and cuz his pride keeps him from asking Jill for the money) Cane steals from the twins college fund. Meanwhile...the tech also clues Billy in to the fact he was set up...and tries to make a deal. Collosion Course in 3...2... ___ I know we had debated that there were still beats to play in the L.A./B&S story and it sounds like the writers are going to touch on the very things we had discussed in the normal thread. So kinda excited that Cane has not hit bottom...YET... PS. Please have Jill around for this reveal.
  6. So Nikki's MS is cured huh? So absurd.
  7. Apparently this actor posted this short clip on Instagram after he finished an audition for Y&R. Well, he looks like he is on the Y&R floor anyway. Has anyone seen this? Do you think this is a new character? Or a recast?
  8. Y&R is casting a new Moses but have they forgotten who Moses' mother is and what she looks like?! I was on hiatus from Y&R duing most of this time but even I know what Sophia looks like! SMH does Y&R think that Lily and Cane are this child's parents?! THE YOUNG & THE RESTLESS Recasts Neil's Son With Child Actor Dax Randall! Why does Y&R continue to do this?!
  9. I guess Billy & Phyllis is happening? The extended promo features Hilary and Devon
  10. Well, now that it's over, how would you grade the November Sweeps of all the soaps? Or are you really thinking sleeps? Why? Why not?
  11. So...how did your soap do overall this year? A, B, C, D, Z???
  12. A lot of soaps have a central theme. ATWT was, from what I interpreted from Irna's bible, it was the importance of a strong family. AMC's was the brother hood of man. GL's was 'There is a destiny that makes us brothers....' My question is: What is the core theme/focus for shows like DOOL, Y&R, AW, SFT, LOL, EON etc. If shows like Y&R/DOOL didn't have one how did writers like PFS/Bill Bell, Ann Marcus (?), Kay Alden maintain a steady direction?
  13. Tonight! Your mySONtv soaps are back again with three explosive episodes! Tonight on Another World Vicky makes a decision that may tear the McKinnons in two... Next, on The Young & The Restless Cane rides the white horse... and on Days of Our Lives The battle of wits begins, as Titan's biggest struggle begins in the boardroom... ALL TONIGHT, on SON.
  14. Three of MySONtv's most recent hits return tonight after a bit of winter hibernation. A major faceoff in Bay City... Cane does the unthinkable on tonight's Y&R... and don't forget to check out... Kim Brady is on a mission, and she won't lose... TONIGHT! Three of your favourites are BACK!

  18. I just found this Y&R cast photo from the early 2000's online, I just had to share: I am loving the whole layout! It definitely screams high budget to me, and was a great break from the choir boys poses of years pass. I also loved that they had basically their entire bevy of recurring players featured. I even spot Beth Maithland! What do you think? Have a favourite Y&R cast photo? I think the recent ones have looked terrible and classless.
  19. Watching the B&B 25th Anniversary was so much fun. It was especially nice to see the big 4 original cast members together: Ronn Moss (Ridge), John McCook (Eric), Susan Flannery (Stephanie), and Katherine Kelly Lang (Brooke). It got me thinking, of the Soaps that hit the big 25, were they all so lucky to have a stable contingency of original cast members in their roster. Could the producers use the beautiful flashbacks from the earl days to bring the viewrs back to the "good 'ole days." I know for Search for Tomorrow, Mary Stuart (Jo) was there from the start. On All My Children, in 1995 there was still very much the presense of original cast members. Of course you had Susan Lucci as Erica, Ruth Warrick as Phoebe, and Mary Fickett and Ray MacDonnell as stalwarts Ruth and Joe (and anyone who knows me knows my undying adoration of Ms. Fickett). We were so lucky at tha time to get very regular cameos by Lawrence Keith as the irrasacable rouge Nick Davis. Of course only months before, we lost our beloved Fra Heflin as Mona. At the family reunion in the Martin abode, original characters Paul Martin, Chuck Tyler, Lincoln Tyler, and Jeff Martin were all present (though played by their much more memorable recasts William Mooney, Richard Van Vleet, Peter White, and Charlie Frank).
  20. For anyone who misses the small scenes soaps used to be so good at, you may enjoy this 2/86 SOD article
  21. I have read the book Afternoon Delight: Why Soaps Still Matter and as a person who wants to be in the soap industry as a writer (been watching since 1990) I found it a good read...except for one thing. I copied and pasted this from my kindle app and want to know what you all think of this: Maria Arena Bell, protégé and daughter-in-law of legendary creator William J. Bell, is head writer and executive producer of this show, which has been #1 for 22 years in a row. Her family (Hi, the Bells) still owns a big piece of it; her husband, William J. Bell, Jr. oversees the show. Hopefully, no one is messing with Maria’s stories or vision, which was her late father- in-law’s cardinal rule. Victor, Nikki, Jack and Katherine remain sheer gold; and Phyllis, Ashley, Nick, Sharon, Billy, Victoria, Michael, Lauren, Neil, Jill, Kevin, Chloe, Gloria, etc. rotate in and out of story beautifully. With the state of the show right now at the time of this book and beforehand, this bothers me. I know this book was released early summer of this year (June 14th according to Amazon) and possibly finished around the time AMC and OLTL's cancellations were announced but I think there were major problems long before that she fails to realize. Daisy and Meggie ate up all of the time before the doppelgangers storyline was released. I personally think Maria doesn't really write much of anything and lets Hogan do all of the work. And while I loved Hogan's early work on ATWT he has grown to be just as much of a hack as other hacks that have been recycled on daytime soaps. I don't think she is respecting William J. Bell's history. If she was, the show would be just as good now as it was during his era. If she was a true protege, she would write good material and get Sony to fire Hogan and the writer or writers left over from LML. </rant>
