Y&R: Major character return in the works? SPECULATION

But she claims she did clear it with the production team before the scene rolled. Which makes this even less of a big deal, to me. Should she have cleared it specifically with Rowell? Probably. But like you said, I'm sure it was more of a "I think this is a good idea" thing than a "I'm going to spit on Vicki because she's black and I hate her."

And yet if she cleared it with production why did she have Nelson amend her statement after the fact?

Is it that much of a stretch to think Rowell's race didn't enter Stafford's mind AT ALL and that she simply thought it would be good for the scene?

*sigh*

Exactly.

Yes, there are racists in this world. But that doesn't mean that *every* person is racist. Sometimes things have *nothing* to do with race, and really are just about the scene. It's sad that we live in a world where almost everything is perceived as something it's not, simply because every action has to be grouped together.

And yet if she cleared it with production why did she have Nelson amend her statement after the fact?

I wasn't aware that she did that. Even if she didn't clear it with production, it still does not indicate racism. Inappropriate behavior? Yes. Egotism? Probably. Racism? That's a huge stretch.

Yeah...I don't think it was VR either, It all rules down too who wasn't on the show at that time, but possibly could have been recurring or has come back recently.

I honestly for some reason think It might have been Lauralee, because i don't think the soap press would risk singling her out of saying things about her father's show. so they just had it as annoymous.

Rowell was very frank about MTS wearing a wig (I'm guessing an "ethnic" wig) and teasing her to her face about it. She also said the wardrobe people would often give her clothes that MTS didn't want or that didn't fit her.

The trolling is getting comical now.

And it's funny that for all "concrete evidence" of racism certain fans need all of the sudden they had NOTHING to say when Davetta was treated horribly then fired, Kristoff was almost fired or Tonya & Veronica were treated like extras after years of employment.

it still does not indicate racism.

Of course not.

America is totally post-racial.

We even have a Black President who never has to deal with...oh wait. Nevermind.

She also said both Tonya & Veronica wanted to stop using wigs but production forced them to keep wearing them.

And Kristoff was almost fired for doing what every other actor on his show (that isn't Black) does regularly.

I suppose if she spat on Christian LeBlanc she'd be a homophobe?

No.

But it's funny how nobody has anything but good things about Greg Rikaart for publicly SLAMMING an actor on another soap.

I wasn't around SON when Davetta was fired, but I was under the impression that she was let go so that CK could come back. I don't see racism in that. CK originated the role and despite the opinions here, is a fan favorite. I didn't know Kristoff was almost fired, and again I wasn't around when Tonya and Veronica were dropped.

But that has nothing to do with this argument. Your claims are that the brass at Y&R are racist. Michelle Stafford is who we're talking about, and she had no say in getting Kristoff, Tonya, Veronica, or Davetta's fired. No actor has that much clout.

As for America being post-racial: Of course there is still racism in this country. But there are also a lot of people who want to call actions racist that were done with no intention of being racist.

I said this on the board awhile back, but a lot of times when a black person walks into a working environment and behaves as if they are just as good their white counterparts, that's going to be a problem for some white people.

Y&R is totally post-racial though.

Race isn't ever a factor except when it's concrete. :lol:

Oh, Melody is another one that's not very well-liked by many on the show. Part of that is her own doing.

You know for years she probably thought she was the HBIC when Ed Scott was there, but that definitely changed when he was fired the first time.

She is a true Diva and I am not surpised. I heard she and Braeden ruled the set....

Melody once said [after Heather Tom left] that Sharon Case was her only real friend on set and the only one she truly trusts.

Hmmm...two Divas being friends?? I heard Sharon was a total beyotch! I guess it all went to her head.

Just a thought but...Serena Williams as the new Dru! She did say acting was something she wanted to do a while back.

She has a diva reputation, but has never gone out of her way to repeat herself over and over for 5 years. I don't think VR is crazy, but she really doesn't know how to present an issue in a light that makes her look good. The underlying, and serious issue, of racism backstage gets overshadowed by the "crazy" manor in which she presents it.

The reality is if Vicki never returns she & the character she helped create are still important enough to the show years after the fact & they still haven't been able to replace her.

She & her legacy (much like Ellen Holly) stand on their own.

Serena's net worth is what? Yeah she likes acting but she wouldn't tie herself down to this shitheap for any reason.

Dru should never be recast!
