  1. I like @Forever8‘s idea of her as a Forrester rival on B&B. Since this is a dream, I’ll just fantasize that she’d be written well (as opposed to Bradley’s inevitable hatchet job).
  2. I also find it super distracting to have these iconic soap stars replacing each other. Louise and Robin are each so identifiable in their performance styles and mannerisms. Maybe it won’t be as distracting if you’re not prolific soap viewers like many of us here.

  9. If soaps actually wrote for black people, Jasmine Guy. I know she did Melrose Place.
  10. I’m just curious how they’ll promote this. Shades of Rebecca Budig/Sabine Singh? They’d never get away with something that egregious, of course—GT is not SS—and they may want to stay low-key after all of this backlash. I do wonder if we’ll see MS on The Talk discussing her return.
