The "secret," of course, being that she's Ricky fraternal twin sister and Paul's long-lost daughter.

Can she be living with an Uncle played by A Martinez?

Not very excited about the singer part but good to see right away they have been starting on diversifying Y&R.

Please no Brittany Underwood though

What happened to the new black male they were casting? That seems forgotten. And for all the initial talk of boosting the African-Americna base prior to introducing a hispanic family, they haven't made any progress. They never use Sarge, Harmony is on the way out, there is no talk of a Devon storyline either. That leaves just Lily and Neil isolated by themselves.

Sarge mentioned his "dead" brother to Jack the other day, which in soap parlance screamed, "He's not really dead!" I automatically assumed he was the new black male character they were auditioning for (i.e., the scenes with Lily at Jabot).

I'm sure the mess with CK pushed the character back. She was bragging on twitter about long overdue story coming up for herself so he may be appearing soon enough. As for Devon he's a music producer so if new hispanic girl is a singer than he'll be involved in her storyline. And I think I read Neil is supposed to be involved in an up and coming business storyline.

IOW, don't worry, folks: Josh and Jill will get that Black story up and pumping again.

Or should I say, tienda y moverse con fuerza?

She just played an 18 year old on her way to becoming The Popstar so a 20 year old isn't far out of the realm.

If they're raiding from their summer sensation then her other option would be Ashley Holliday. If either is picked then the movement for a second season loses air and Eddie/Loren fans will be devastated but maybe not since they are certain it's going to happen no matter what. Either ending up on the show and opposite Noah would create quite the dynamic--especially AH. You;d have girlfriend on that show turned sister on this and sister on that show turned girlfriend on this.

So you don't care for Brittany Underwood?

    • lol. Yeah, I definitely could have thought of a better title. Heck, GH people should have thought of a better title.  lol. Yeah, I definitely could have thought of a better title. Heck, GH people should have thought of a better title. 
    • Yes so big in fact that if GH was cancelled, I would shocked if Sonny did not ride off into the sunset with Brenda...with needed changes of course. Please register in order to view this content  She is still too heavily connected to the canvas...or can be...to not even NOT be relevant. As Brenda should be.   But I really came by LOL...granted I'm farther back than the rest of you, but I haven't gotten to the repetitive nature of the conversations between 'Sonny' and Carly yet. And like I've mentioned, I like this feels very much (as much as a soap can be) organic conflict.    But one thing I have liked about it (so far) has been Carly HAS NOT reacted to it the way she usually does. Let's face it...once Carly knew Sonny was alive and Nina knew, 9 times out of 10, she would have EXPLODED and @Cheap21 would have done one awesome 'Oh Lord Carly's on the Loose' gif/pic. Then she would have raised h#ll from the moment she found out to now, complete with a revenge plot.   I liked that they have truly just showed...yes, showed...Carly wrestle with her feelings over Nixon Falls. Olivia. Gladys. Willow(?). She has made a LOOOOOOOT of effect to not just explode at the drop of a hat. And even when she has started to, Carly has caught herself. And I found LW was playing that to the hilt. It's been over weeks, too. If that is not maturity, I don't know what is.   That said...I still keep that Carly will be her own worst enemy in the end. But at least it has a build to it.      THIS.   And they definitely prove that last part when VM came back for GH's 50th. First scene and it was there. At least for me. lol. 
    • I was never a big Brenda or Sonny/Brenda fan in her heyday, but I liked her with Jax near the end of the '90s and then came to appreciate her in hindsight much later. Caroline and I have had a lot of discussions centering around the S/B pairing in latter years and their doomed marriage in the early 2010s, and how their final (very good, brutally honest) scenes in 2011 indicated why it is futile to pair Sonny with anyone else - because if the character cannot change for her, he won't for anyone. I'm assuming Khan hasn't seen them so it's time to post them again! It was the first time in years Maurice had impressed me, and the last. Also some of the last, best work of the very longtime writing team, most of which went out with Guza and JFP. And I do agree - they could bring her back tomorrow and it would still work with them, and would be necessary to evolve the character and move him into an elder statesman role (with VM taking the share of story) and transition more and more away from the mob. We've discussed that one around here before too, though. It's also why Frank doesn't bring her back; he knows she is too big for the show he chooses to make and what he chooses to focus on.
    • Yeah, I mean, at least Promised Land makes Queens look good, but the producers should start talks about moving this to Hulu asap because it's not going to survive on ABC.
