Y&R: Old Articles

Recommended Posts

Joe was her uncle, she was definitely on Summer 1983 according to soap synopsis I have. She would just appear every summer, then full time from 1986. I think the Nina story with Rose was her first proper storyline on the show.

 

In terms of the Jabot photographers

 

I believe Joe Blair was on at least from 1982. He has a scene with Jack were Jack is telling him about proposing to Patti and Joe is giving him a hard time about it.

 

Skip, I am almost certain came on in 1987, pretty sure around the time Nina got a job there as his assistant.

 

Then yeah Blade came next I guess in 1992 and I do think Malcolm might have shot some stuff for Jabot or maybe it was Brash & Sassy. Pretty sure I remember scenes of Victoria flirting with Malcolm at the studio in the mid to late 90's.

Going back to the SOD critique of Christine's Hawaiian Wedding, I agree with their assessment that she was unusually demanding of her parents (the joke in the article was that if she could convince Jim to move to Genoa City why not Hawaii?). 

 

Jessica comes to town in 1988 to thwart a love affair between Christine and her here-to-fore unknown half-brother Scott, she falls in love with John Abbott and they marry (in the corner Terry Lester was probably getting TMJ from grinding his teeth in anger at the prospect of Cricket becoming an Abbott).  Less than six months later, Scott escorts Christine to a medical convention to meet Dr. Jim Grainger and tells him that she is his daughter.  He immediately joins them in Genoa City, leaving his life and award-winning career behind him. 

 

Then, Cricket convinces Jessica and Jim to get married despite the fact that they haven't seen each other in 20 years, John still loved Jessica, Jim presumedly had a long-term relationship with Scott's mother, and Jessica died shortly afterward.  That's when the bug became a monster.

 

An interesting detail, Jessica did not die of an AIDS-related illness:

 

 John Abbott, who’d been married to Christine’s mom Jessica, along with her father Dr. Jim Grainger and brother Dr. Scott Grainger arrived to talk to Christine about her mother’s death. They explained that a nurse had found a barbiturate in her mother’s bed, a prescription that hadn’t been ordered. An autopsy was ordered by an administrator and proved Jessica died of barbiturate poisoning – not AIDS, which she’d suffered from.

 

Christine couldn’t believe it and demanded to know where her mother would have gotten the pills. John handed over a letter that Jessica wrote before she died, explaining how she hadn’t wanted to linger on in pain as her family stood by and watched. All three men admitted to giving Jessica the pills that ended her suffering.

 

It was among the least educational endings to a socially relevant story in soap history.

ELLEN: Annie, tell me, are you pregnant?

 

ANNIE: Mom, don't be silly.  Do I look pregnant?

 

ELLEN: Yes, you do.

 

KHAN: Damn, Ellen!  Could you BE any less sensitive about your daughter's weight gain?

 

LOL!

I guess Bill Bell didn't want to show someone dying of AIDS, or complications from it.  But I do think having Jessica die like that was, in retrospect, a bit of a copout.

So I found this from Jon-Michael Reed's column from an Oct 8, 1983 newspaper. Robert Colbert was officially let go by that point, the last mention I could find of Stuart is from Memorial Day 1983.

Here is some stuff for Patty. 

 

First is the announcement that Lilibet Stern signed a 5 year contract with Y&R from Nov 6, 1980. Patty was absent from any synopsis from Jul - Dec. So maybe Tammy Taylor left in Jul and Lilibet first aired in Dec.

 

Next is the announcement that Lilibet was leaving and Andrea Evans was taking over, from May 22, 1983

 

Last is a few questions from soap fans who don't seem too happy with the recast

Ive always wondered how stuarts last episode was like i guess thus is better then nothing, funny his last episode was just in time for the arrival of dina now imagine they had made those 2 intertwined that would have been juicy material.

And also lauren was on by then, i think this is the earliest of lauren ive ever read about.

I recall cricket's dad was dating Nikki during this period as well.. right before Nikki became a recluse on the ranch.

I always forget that she went into that orbit but it seems like they were trying to figure out what to do with her at that point

They could spell "Di Salvo" correctly, but Mergeron, Dina, Traci, Kay, and Jabot were just too tough for 'em!
