I still prefer TB and SJB as Carly. Laura Wright is serviceable in the role and I'm used to her as Carly now but I'd still take either back in a heartbeat.
I always assumed SJB and TB were kinda pushed out, but yeah of course it was on their own, but still ... I question the treatment SJB has gotten on her soap roles. Phelps wasn't exactly a fan favorite of SJB, Tamblyn, Francis ... several actresses couldn't seem to run fast enough away (or were being pushed out)
IMHO, SJB should still be Carly to this day. I wish she were. But she's not. It is what it is LOL.
Killer Griller Filler Thriller Miller can stay off soaps, especially Y&R. The sets are small enough without him chomping them up!
I need a respite from Billy as well. Even when he's not on, it feels like he is.
