Spit takes have been happening in Hollywood for decades.

That wasn't a spit take.

A spit take is PLANNED by all parties INVOLVED.

I hardly think it was a malicious thing

It won't be.

Right after she spits on ANY white actress because "the scene warrants it."

Did I miss where MS cleared it with VR? She talked to others, but did she ok it with VR since it wasn't scripted?

Funny how she never spat on Alex Donnelly or Susan Walters or Lauralee or MTS or Heather Tom or Amelia Heinle or Maura West or Jess Walton or Yvonne Zima or Eileen Davidson or Sharon Case.

Or Tracey Bregman or even Patty Weaver

I'm a few pages back but I just want to say it is unacceptable that a show that had an unbreakable lock on a black audience and black canvas for well over a decade, if not longer, does not have adequate hairstylists for black performers. It's not like Y&R didn't have these women frontburner for years. AMC only got Debbi Morgan back a few years ago, and before that they weren't exactly frontburnering the AA folks, yet her hair looked fine!

I always said that the only people that could break Y&R's lock on a black audience was Y&R itself, and that's exactly what happened.

It could be daytime, it could be primetime, it could be anything. It really doesn't matter. These same issues can be found in any arena of the business, daytime just lags behind because of its perceived demographic and value and the same people circulating through it. The bullshit is of slightly higher grade when you get into primetime or cable, but I see the same strains, just mutated, anywhere else, for a variety of minorities. Primetime's got a lot of old hacks too. We just call it something different.

That's the thing. If she wasn't trying to be malicious, she was certainly trying to upstage and surprise her scene partner which shows her lack of theatre training if not professionalism. You always run such things by your scene partner. Sure, there are instances when trying something surprising in performance can yield wonderful results, but if somebody spit all over my costume without warning...

Bergman said he and Jill have been friends for years. I think Auntie Jack is safe.

JFP tends to clash with most soap divas.

Wasn't Eric Braeden pissed when Heather Tom slapped him in a scene and made sure that never happened with anyone again?

Yep and he claims it's because he doesn't like anyone man or woman hitting each other but in the same sentence then spoke about how the men in daytime need to get their balls back and he didn't see how people could've gotten offended by Victor tossing Diane out the ambulance.

If MS spit all over his suit, he would have called "COT!" and done "everything within his paaaa" not to snatch her up.

Pretty much.

Yep.

And that was PLANNED.

    • +4. It get life (and an angel gets some wings) when Production dog Drew.   And...I knew it was a matter of time. Probably cuz Kyle or Ex Soap Opera Star won't leave her alone...    
    • Viki (which is how her name is spelled) did undergo major therapy in 1995-1997. Her heading off to Paris, Texas was not depicted in any way as a psychotic break or mental illness crisis. She took a leave of absence from her job, told the family she was on vacation and went off to find herself. There's always more the show could've done, but they played her DID out more than once.
    • This got me thinking about two other topics. 1).  Although it was not top of mind 20 years ago, it is a missed opportunity that there were not more consequences of Vicki's mental illness.  It seemed obvious that they would explore the genetic predisposition with the Jessica storyline (which was offensively inaccurate in hindsight).  Yet, Joey and Kevin were totally exempt from any emotional illnesses, not even a six-week period of depression, which would have been six times more likely given Vicki's thought disorder.  Also, Vicki was the CEO of a large publishing company, and I don't recall anyone challenging her competency.  She made many rash decisions, including "escaping" to Texas to work in a diner, and yet nobody suggested that she needed further treatment.  She went through many more traumas including the deaths and divorce, and not once was it suggested that she seek therapy or utilize psychotropic medications.  Instead, the treatment of mental illness was still portrayed as evil sanitariums where doctors would forcibly subdue their patients with shots from huge needles.  And yet, even a vet like Brody didn't need to care about insurance coverage to pay for his long term hospitalization. 2). I was trying to think of a list of all of the OLTL heroines who killed someone, most often in self-defense.  Nora killed Colin (no gun, just pushed him down the stairs), Vicki killed Johnny Hesser (gun), Dorian thought she killed Mitch (a hotel lamp was the fatal weapon), Cathy Craig murdered her drug dealer (gun), Rachel killed Georgie (gun),  Blair shot Max (gun). Help me out if you can think of other characters or event in which guns were used for self-defense.   Because, in retrospect, the number of times that guns were glamorized as a weapon of empowerment for victimized women really needs a second assessment.
    • You’re welcome!! Lol I’m hazy on the details when I saw the clip but do vaguely recall it occurring around the same time Jill was forced to work as a manicurist again. There’s so much from MAB era I have blocked out until I am forced to see it again lol.
    • Thanks!! Lol, I knew it was probably from one of MABs era of retelling famous old movie and sitcom plots.
