It is MAB, who still can't get over her firing from over 2 years ago.

She recently chimed in her to good friend Tommy Lightfoot Garrett on that "Fall and Rise of Y&R" article:

This woman really needs to give it up, she's so deluded.

OMG, I can't even follow that article by that dude who's clearly high or drunk in addition to being illiterate when he writes this drivel. While we all know there was a power struggle between Sony and the Bells (and that corporations have destroyed soaps), MAB was not the panacea to save the show. The Bells were crazy to put her in charge. She should have been a consultant or on the writing team offering ideas. Bell Family got one seat at the writing table, MAB; and Sony got one, Sheffer, and CBS got one, Hamner. It was a show written by committee. Some weeks the show was reminiscent of Sheffer's worst days at ATWT. We know he wrote the chipmunk Kevin drama. Then for weeks it would be a crime drama, the Hamner hallmark (he was no Henry Slesar) and some weeks the show would try to retcon or take advantage of Bell stories (Jill's parentage, bringing in Phillip, Marge)...all MAB ideas I'm sure.

There's no hope for soaps on network television. They will be beaten to death by profit margins and bottom lines. Even if Phelps leaves, Pratt will take full control and hasten Y&R death. It will linger for years as DOOL has but as a shadow of itself. SILENT FADE TO BLACK....ROLL CREDITS

OMG can this woman shut the f&@k up. She got fired because her show stunk. She ruined the Bell legacy and destroyed it with awful stories, over budget of old soap vets and talk about awful stunts. Ratings were hitting terrible lows at the end of her run. If she wasn't too busy being a socialite and taking 5 to 6 vacations CBS wouldn't have stepped in. I won't say JFP hasn't had her faults but she did produce higher ratings then MAB and produced tons of Emmys. I don't think Jill gives a [email protected]@t about MAB. Heck Jill didn't just go to Angelica about Pratt she went to Nina Tassler. Say what u want about Angelica but she is much better than Frons. Deal or No deal is at its highest and the Talk has buzz and is a hot show and B and B has done great ratings. Tommy is an idiot he keeps saying JFP job is on the line and she's getting fired for 2 years now and she's going to hit two and half years at the helm on year 3 so where is her pink slip? MAB go shut the hell up and go back to being a rich snotty socialite. In fact it's her bashing of CBS and Sony probably a reason Kay Alden was rejected. They won't consider any Bell protege.

Also if and when SONY replaces JFP I doubt it because she's buddies with Steve Kent but they will definitely not give MAB that job back. I still think Wendy Riche would be fabulous if they still insist from going from the outside.

MAB may have been responsible for the decline of Y&R but she will be seen as a benign friend by the time Phelps and Pratt get through with the show.

No one who had a character sexually assaulted while passed out from a miscarriage will ever be seen as a benign friend by me.

The thing is I don't think JFP hasn't had her faults. I will say I don't see her going anywhere as shd is the Teflon queen. She's is bosun buddies with Angelica snd Steve. I am disappointed JFP didn't let Jean run her vision. MAB just hates JFP so much.

A lot of actors and crew in soaps dont like JFP. its not just MAB

Jean has no vision. There! I said it! None!! Several soaps, more than one shot at the top as HW. Boring, meandering, lifeless stories. Her vision is to plod along until death.

MAB had about 3 or 4 months of great story when her run began. Then it became worse than Latham! My problem is JFP has driven me away from every soap she has been EP of for 20 years. No headwriter she had had during her tenure has been appropriate for Y&R, not good enough to HW any soap.
