No, Genie I blame on Jill. I think they're both just being very nice about it. There were too many stories at that time. AFAIC, even with the allowances I sometimes give her, she's still about 80% Devil. Her GH was unwatchable amateur hour when she was alone, but then she became the facilitator for Guza and helped his crew disenfranchise a slew of female actors. She dumped Anna Lee, too. Then, when the strike hit and JFP was left in charge again around 2008 or so, what show did she put on the air? A slightly classed-up version of the same amateur night, third-tier soap [!@#$%^&*] she peddled at GH in 2001 and at AW in the '90s - weird ladies with color/clothes fetishes (Claudia and her red shoes/Angel Sorel and her white then red wardrobe), a random-ass storyline for her pal Rick Hearst with a newbie that came out of fuckin' nowhere that only marginalized Ric's character further. I'm sure if she'd had more time A Martinez would've come on back as Adventure Man Roy.
She might be doing slightly better at Y&R because she's not writing it, but her touches and interests are still clear. I give it a year before Steve Burton's Dylan turns out to be a Newman or Chancellor, tops.
