Why because she refused to roll over and play dead?  

Because she's certifiable regardless of race and she didn't do anything to advance the cause of Black actors anywhere.  No other show would touch her.  Soaps are notorious for hiring and maintaining difficult actors.  If a show thought they could handle her particular brand of narcissistic crazy, they would have signed her on.  She also worked in night time.. Why weren't the contracts coming from those producers.

Because she's a black woman in hollywood who actually acknowledged the rampant racism and she didn't go about it in the right way. How dare she.

 

She "crazy" but she ain't wrong.

 

The only people in the cast that I think would not welcome her back are Peter Bergman and Christel Khalil and neither is worth one Victoria Rowell. Sorry.

I'd love for VR to come back, I'm just hard pressed to believe that'll ever happen. But I want it! 

 

Since Day 1, VR's Dru was a compelling character and the actress has charisma FOR DAYS.  I'd love to have her back.

When VR gets into a physical altercation and/or spits on a coworker, get back to me 😒

I never could stand Dru and I do not want to see VR return to Y&R. Surely the show can hire someone else to steal scenes; it's not as if it's never been done before or since.

 

Apparently they can't or that someone would've already been hired. 

 

JC was supposed to be a scene stealer but apparently folks are not feeling her.

These shows that have a hard enough time writing for black characters without the status or calibre of talent of VR didn't hire her?! Gasp! You don't say.

Jeanne Cooper has sadly passed and sorely missed and she stole every scene she was in. I don't know who else you could possibly be talking about.

Judith Chapman perhaps.

Judith Chapman, LOL but I don't blame you for not recognizing her.

All Judith Chapman does is bug out her eyes. That's old and tired; didn't one of the Marx Brothers do that?

I feel pretty much the same way about both Brenda Dickson and Victoria Rowell. No doubt they have legitimate grievances but it's really too bad it's all wrapped in so many confusing layers of crazy.

I didn't get the JC reference either...that says it all. I like JC and find her gloria amusing, but she's no Victoria Rowell. 

 

I think CK has grown alot. She seems to now understand the hole her careerless, uterusless character has been placed in. Surely, she understands what having a popular mature true lead character who can drive story for a mother means for Lily's story. Hell, the only reason lily was paired with Daniel was because of the drama between Drucilla and Phyllis. And once Dru died , they quickly ended it for Amber. 

 

PB needs to be put out your pasture any damn way. He doesn't count. They don't have to share airtime.

VR is far from crazy. I've actually had two separate discussions with her regarding diversity and other matters a few years ago - she saw one of my tweets - PM'd me and then we went to email. She is incredibly knowledgeable and polite. Hollywood likes to preach to 'middle America' about diversity and other so-called liberal causes (like gun control), but they do the exact opposite. I hope she returns to Y&R

 

After what happened to CK a few years ago - being sent to audition for another Y&R role - I bet she views things a lot differently than 10 years ago. PB - who cares - they all need to buck up and deal. Life is too darned short.

    • It's only "valuable" if it's proven to be accurate.  (And no, SONY hasn't put any Y&R "out there"; in fact, old episodes of Y&R, uploaded by fans who have recordings, are frequently removed from internet channels due to "copyright infringement". )  
    • As much as I love Lois and would be thrilled to have a scene with Brenda, Sonny, and Lois again, I don’t really wish this show on her at this point.  Lois is wholly a Claire Labine character.  Guza couldn’t write for her, and I don’t think anyone that is a soap HW currently understands how to write for a character like Lois.  And I’m all for her being moved forward character wise, but again, she had a certain set of ethics, personality traits, etc that just do not work well on todays soaps. it would end up as a caricature, and I’m tired of that happening to beloved characters and actors.

    • Hmm, okay. I must have misremembered. I thought Robyn was just hanging out with John Wayne Bobbitt & some others of his group. But, they were an item, huh? (My fave, too.) One of my oldest friends has just posted in my FB group to me that she & her husband know Robyn & her husband & shared good things about them. They live in PA & work there in professional theatre & Robyn worked there, too. Robyn was from their town. She talked about her husband, the golf pro, and how devoted he has been to Robyn. And, of course, about her last 2 yrs & how valiantly she fought but that she did not lose her great sense of humor! Apparently she had a little dog who was as devoted to Robyn as she to it. I found out last week that Paul Michael Valley has been diagnosed with lung cancer. And, I had been waiting to hear from Anna Stuart & she did not disappoint. She is so good with words & with feelings! And, they stayed so close. (I did not realize that AW was wooing Anna to come back while she was in H'wood.) I'm still in a "not okay" place about Anne. I'm a F'ANNE. But I'm trying to latch onto every positive tidbit I can find. My favorite articles besides Anna's now are the "stubborn incandescence" & the Roger Ebert website "review of career and life". I'm loving learning more & celebrating more Anne esoterica from her not knowing who Lindsey Buckingham was when she dated him (SO Anne!) to it being a serendipitous snowstorm that we have to thank for her being "found"! I have just seen 2 brand new URLs for the "Call Me Crazy" audiobook. I have it & it's wonderful that it's Anne's voice. If anyone wants the links, I'll copy/paste them. I was in a group of AW fans that were in touch with VW online & on the phone & she & CK were guardians & mentors to the Maggies & we did not like Jodi O'Keefe not one bit & they tried to get us to be good! She was just a long-legged model-wannabe with 1 trick - remain perfectly motionless draped on a sofa.
