I don't think he's related to Winters. I'm pretty sure his story is with Lily though. They hire a photographer that just happens to be black as soon as lily starts modeling for Brash and sassy.  Telegraphed a mile away. He could have a past with hilary though. I won't rule that out.  Sally seems to want a lily versus hilary rivalry and they can't fight over devon like she wants since lily can't sleep with him. So, insert new guy. Maybe? 


He's 27 though. Good age. The show needs young men.

This is already doomed to fail if it involves Lily.


Don't worry. They'll quickly insert Hilary (and Devon) to try to float it. I wouldn't doubt him ending up as Hilary crazy ex husband. Lmbo 


But I do love that casting.

But, didn't they use to hire dark skin characters?


In the 80s.


Honestly, I think Tonya Lee Williams was the last actor that did not look bi-racial to be hired.

Before Stephanie E. Williams (as Amy) was beautiful, graceful but somewhat marginalized.

Nathan Purdee had some decent storyline for awhile but perhaps he saw what was in store for his character and left for greener pastures (OLTL).


After Olivia and little Nate, it really hadn't been the same since.

Did I say I didn't like Ravi? That's not what I said. At all. Go back and read any/all posts written by me concerning him and you will find the sentinent is quite the opposite. 


And my expressing that I hope it works out for both was clearly meant to include both men.


Seriously, am I being misunderstood? Is there some way to further clarify so that this ceases to happen?

    • Victoria outscheming EVERYONE.  Finally.   Such an interesting story about all the men assuming that the poor little woman is clueless and incompetent.  Everyone having conversations about this. (Men assuming that "the poor little woman is incapable of making rational decisions for herself" is really reflecting society right now.)   And meanwhile she is secretly being the queen here and taking down Ashland in her own way and on her own terms, without being *rescued* by any man. They are so underestimating her! Destroy them all!
    • That's a very true point & a very scary estimation.
    • Seriously, given the resources they have, compared to GL at the end, I think they are much worse.
    • There were three of those "series". Chad & Abby in Paris, Chapter One  Eight episodes Aug. 1 – Sept. 5, 2019 Chad & Abby in Paris, Chapter Two Eight episodes Sept. 19 – Nov. 7, 2019 Last Blast Reunion (takes place in New York City) Eight episodes Nov. 29, 2019 – Jan. 16, 2020 They were on a special "app" called the "DOOLapp" and that app was available only in the US.  You had to have the app -- they couldn't be watched in a regular browser window. They weren't streaming, and they weren't podcasts, but they were sort of like that.  Some viewers referred to the episodes as "appisodes" for lack of a better term.  The show officially called it a "Digital Series".  Each episode was between 6 and 10 minutes long.  The first few were uploaded at once; and then one episode was uploaded each week thereafter. These series sort of had same concept as what Beyond Salem does now - Salem characters interacting outside of Salem. It was canon.  But if you only watched the main daytime show and never knew about the DOOLapp "appisodes", it wouldn't disrupt your continuity of watching the main daytime show. The characters of Chad and Abby had exited the main daytime show prior to this. They had left Salem and were living in Paris.   This was a quick way to check in with the characters without requiring a longterm taping commitment for the actors.  The episodes were so short that I think each "chapter" was filmed in a few days. They introduced the character of Li Shin (Remington Hoffman) for the very first time in  "Chad and Abby in Paris".  Li and Chad worked in the Paris office of DiMera Enterprises.   Later on, Hoffman debuted as Li on the main daytime show in April 2020. For the digital "Last Blast Reunion" in New York, they brought back several of the original actors from the Last Blast Dance teen crowd of old for a reunion - who hadn't been on the main daytime show in many many years. Including Jay Kenneth Johnson and Heather Lindell -- who came to the main daytime show later in 2020. In a different sort of carryover ...  the 2019 Chad and Abby in Paris apartment set was used for the first time for the main daytime show in 2020 -- the set was used briefly at various times when Salem characters were running from the police and went to France and hid out at the DiMera Paris apartment.
    • @Vee Pathetic stuff.  Reminds me that earlier today Jordan Charlton, yet another Bernie dead-ender/accelerationist, was tweeting out Puck News as the gospel truth (an article about how shocked Republicans are at Democrats not doing more after the Dobbs decision).  I don't think it will sway many, because those who fall for this tend to be already be unlikely to vote for Democrats anyway, but the full court press from the garbage dump left, desperately working  to drown out any sense of motivation or activism, has been staggering, and shows just how in bed they are with the right.  Here is Jezebel blatantly misleading people that Biden is soon going to appointed an anti-abortion judge: Media Matters: There is so much more where this has come from, including deadenders pushing people to boycott Planned Parenthood and instead donate to cult groups like Rise Up.
