I'm no Cristian cheerleader by any means, but even I was offended when she said, "I can't kiss that face." How [[email protected]#$%^&*] rude is THAT? But you know, good enough for OLTL, that's what happens when you value stunt casting for more than it's worth. Makes for good reality TV, peple being obnoxious and all, but save yourselves the energy and $$$ and cast more Vimals and Ramas, actors who bring a refreshing spark to the show and have the potential for being memorable soap characters that we'll look back on fondly someday.

Seriously? Has KK even looked at the guy who knocked her up? David Fumero is 10 times the man that guy will ever be

I have no idea how that was meant to be taken seriously. I kinda know her sister K, but honestly had no clue there were more of these horrendous women. Ugh. I would love to know, but I guess there's no way, if stunt casting sisters of D level stars results in even a couple hundred more viewers.

Chances are, she hasn't. I'm just saying.

Anyone kind enough to embellish this cast list? :)

Blair, Bo, Brody, Clint, Cristian, Cutter, Dorian, Ford, Jessica, Rex, David, Phyllis, Rama, Rick

For today's episode, or for the show in general?

    • Thanks for posting this @kalbir. I knew some of, but not all of this. Bell took a calculated risk with how built the Williams and the Abbott families, but he used two characters, though marginal, who had been imbedded in the fabric of the show's canvas. It wasn't like the Rosales family where they had one minor character for a few months, then brought on his family, then basically switched him out for his brother as a major character. That was so weird. It seemed as if Bell gave the viewers a bit of a breather with Paul and Jack becoming more prominent. If it really is true that Y&R lost no market share after basically dismantling the Brooks and Foster families, then I guess that speaks to how the changes were received overall by the viewers, they may have been disappointed but they obviously kept watching. Also, the storytelling was so much more methodical back then. Characters had to prove highly popular before landing magazine covers and photospreads in soap publications. It's not like when the Rosales were posing for photospreads when nobody even knew who half the characters were.  It seemed as if that family was introduced with lightning speed. 
    • I'm not willing to go that far... yet. China is drastic in the way they deal with dissidents but they're not Russia...yet. China has been known to 'disappear' people who they feel are interfering with the way they run their government business but not usually such high profile individuals (and usually not famous women, who they consider their flowers). Also, unlike Russia, China only seems to take the most extreme measures when some serious criminal charge is made (like the man who was charged with tainting the milk supply, who was executed). Ai Wei Wei is a dissident artists who makes dissident art that is openly critical of Chinese politics and government and he is treated as a hostile force, but even by his own admission he is deliberately provocative, as he believes agit-art is the best way that he can try to get the attention of people who would force change. China is not really in the business of disappearing people like Russia does. At least, not permanently. Jack Ma is one example of someone who went missing for weeks, if not months, then suddenly turned up on his yacht out in the middle of somewhere. You've heard of "Too Big to Fail"? Well, Ma was too big/famous to disappear. With her level of notoriety, I think it would be next to impossible to just do away with her, she's not poor anonymous "Tank Man" in Tiananmen Square. She is Han Chinese woman whose notoriety has only been growing, she's not the unfortunate Uyghurs who are often locked away for months in "re-education" camps, but I suspect that the government will try to 're-program' her mind to forget her allegations, likely under pressure if not all out threats made to her and her family. If she emerges publicly, if not living in anonymity, there will likely be every effort to have her appear timid and cowed in public, much the way she appears now, with broad forced smiles, in front of a menagerie of plush toys.
