It wasn't just any illegal immigrant.

It was Claudia Cortez!!! That's one from the history banks!

Refugee from El Salvador who Thorne hired as a sewer, despite the fact that she does not have a green card to work in the U.S. Living with Stephanie, who assumed responsiblity for her in return for a favor from Thorne

The more Nick talks, the more he makes an ass of himself. OMG...did he forget he bounced between Bridget and Brooke....and ran out of his child's memorial service to boot?? Owen would have to sink quite a bit before Nick would even be able to see his shadow.

As overplayed and redundant as it is, I find the Taylor/Ridge/Brooke story a heck of alot more entertaining than the crap thats been featured on screen the past couple of days

Yeah, B&B always has glimmers of gold mixed in with the manure.

Like, I find it cool that when Bill Jr. nailed Eric on housing an illegal immigrant (didn't Thomas do the same with Gabi, years later?), they dug into the wells and pulled out something from 1996. So, it turned out not to just be a plot-twist-of-the-moment, but a nugget they'd banked for over a decade.

But for me, I can't watch any more Taylor or Ridge. I'd like them together and backburnered. And Brooke set free to do her Brookey things.

OMG, so is Claudia/Lily Melgar back on the show?

There weren't many of us but I loved her on B&B (I need to be specific -- B&B, not so much GH, though was anybody supposed to like Tragic LeeLee?). The SL was abruptly wrapped up, if I recall.

Sorry, not watching at the mo. You guys need to fill me in!

No. But Bill Spencer Jr. threatened yesterday to topple Forrester by revealing that Eric KNOWINGLY employed illegal immigrants.

Upthread, some people thought this was a sudden plot-driven twist with no basis in history.

But then yesterday, when they mentioned Claudia, it became clear to me that they had banked this story in 1996, and used it now. Even if they had planned to drop it, the clever milking of old dropped threads is (for me) Soap Excellence 101.

I thought I heard that Claudia might actually still be working there, behind the scenes? Did anyone else hear that? If Jake McClaine and Rocco are still there, why not Claudia?

I forgot all about Rocco until you just mentioned him. What was the point of even bringing him back? I thought they were going to go somewhere with that

    • Hope so. The current opening is as dull as the show. Some more current and flattering shots would be good especially for MTS. And maybe some variety in the shots rather than having the actors in the same outfit -and sometimes the same pose- in the close up and background shot.
    • BFTD Stories That Stood Out:   Y&R   Victor and the Takeover. I remember that being such a big deal and well drawn out forever and day. And being annoyed every time Victor would be close to leaving and then...something would stall it. And the fallout was something else.    B&B   Does Sheila dying and popping up in L.A. count?   DAYS   I agree with whoever said Will's 2017 return. Not only did he come back...but he had the hots for his boyfriend's first love? If that ain't soapy...   GH   Brenda Barrett. Cuz...BRENDA. lol. That first return was EVERYTHING and while not dead in her other returns...the same thing happens that happened in that first return...instantly heavily attached to the canvas like she never left.   Katherine Bell and the Parapet. Can I mention that? Because it seem like she was dead, dead, dead...until that soapy dramatic Friday cliffhanger when she came into the court the spinning image of her savior Helena. The looks. The fashion. The music. It was PERFECTION. She got a little TOO big for her breeches, but it was still in her character to be that way.    OLTL   I liked the Tale of Two Todds. Though I did prefer Victor to Todd by the end. But crazy as it sounded and camp it had, I liked it then. Speaking of...   Marty's return in the form of Susan Haskell. The story might have been messy and I would probably feel different about it now if I rewatched it, but it was soap. And while the writing might have let me down, SH stayed fascinating to watch from story to story. And I liked that even though they wrote her wrong at the end, there was an attempt at least to course correct.     
    • She probably did bring it up lol.  This time, Brandi should have, if that’s what happened.  These women think they can go back into the fire and not get burned?!?  Like how did Phaedra and Vicky get out of addressing how they left their shows in disgrace, etc. on Ex-Wives s1?!?  Lolol However, Brandi is a tricky subject.  She is sooo desperate to be on Bravo that she will truly bring it… she’ll keep everything moving, but she takes it way too far and alienates herself from everyone.  And then no one will film with her.  And she also obviously can’t drink—she’s simply just not in control of herself, and this isn’t the environment for that because of all the triggers.  Like I’m sure she can get wasted around her real friends, like NY’s Kristen, and just be fun and crazy… but around these other Housewives where there is legit sabotage and paranoia happening, she just loses it.
    • Brandaon Barash and Isabella planned to get married in December. Then they changed their minds and got married (legally) shortly after they got engaged in the summer.  They had second wedding in December as a formal occasion for everyone to attend. Kirsten Storms (formerly Belle on Days, now Maxie on GH) and Brandon Barash were briefly together when he was playing Johnny on GH.  They have a daughter named Harper (who is now 9) and have coparented together every since.  Kirsten said a couple of months ago that she and Brandon were friends and tried a romance but it didn't work but they've remained friends all these years. Isabella was a camp counselor at a camp Harper attended.  Harper loved her and bonded with her first.  Brandon met her as "Harper's camp counselor".  So they met as adults who both cared about Harper.  I know Brandon is a lot older but Harper met Isa first.   The story is that Harper kept begging them to date and get married.  I saw an instagram post from Kirsten Storms indicating her approval. When BB proposed to Isabella, he gave her a diamond ring and he gave Harper diamond earrings, because they are a family together.   They knew each other for a while before they began dating. They dated for 2 or 3 years before he proposed. Her parents were there to assist with the surprise proposal. So after reading the entire story, my personal opinion is that it wasn't what I had assumed at first.  But of course I don't know anyone personally so I actually know nothing.
