is she getting convicted on the show and going to prison? Good.

 

 

i'm pretty sure she did that the first time she left, sis... :lol:

Eventually she won’t have a choice. Y&R isn’t going to be on forever even if they wanted her, and her window is closing...

So Rey/Sharon, Arturro/Abby, Kyle/Lola, Nate/Chemist, where does that leave Devon?

 

I'm not sure. There is another female in that pic posted of the Rosales family from twitter. Maybe they will have her involved with Nate and Candace might interact more with Devon. I do wonder if they will still cast Candace.

Hey, I suppose Y&R is finally being honest that they simply don’t give a damn about black people the Winters family. The idea of a token family for diversity is pretty insulting. 

 

ITA. It's like saying, "So what if we slaughtered the minority characters from the show? Here...here's another colored person we'll just throw in to mollify you. Satisfied now?"

 

How many times in soap history has shoving aside an established family in order to showcase a new clan been successful?

 

Does anyone else besides me even remember the Gregorys who were brought in as a major focus (taking attention away from the Matthewses) on AW? How popular were the Rappadorks or the Saunders or most of the O'Neills on OLTL? How many viewers forgot about the Bauers on TGL because watching Buzz Copper bellow and bray at his family was so much more entertaining? How many fans would have been happy to see the Hugheses backburnered on ATWT, if it meant we could be treated to more Ciccones?

 

If the writing were stellar, MAYBE this could have a chance at working. But with Mal Young at the helm?

 

Pffft.

I was thinking of doing a thread about Latinx families on daytime. It’s an interesting phenomenon.

Nate and new AA female characters will be the token black folks who will be in limited story and even more limited airtime. It'll be fine because no one will care about the characters anyway. They won't have fans complaining and campaiging holding their feet to the fire like with lane and Hevon fans. This is clearly what the show wants.

Yeah, that’s so typical. The Santos family on AMC, the Santos family on GL, the Vegas on OLTL. They were more than happy to pair them with the Anglo characters (I won’t say white since Latinos can be any race or mixed), but they are ethnic enough to date the black folks from time to time. Yet almost without fail, they’ll play some hot Latino stud with the white heroine and play a Latina or woman of color as the villain. 

 

All shows that are cancelled. Y&R is going down the same rabit hole. Displacing AAs for Latinos will not get this show anything good.

Nowhere. Devon will disappear.

How much do you think we will see of Lily in Prison? I say not much and in a year a recast Lily returns

 

 

Mal young isn't long for this show IMO. Josh Griffith is back as a producer. I think he will save Lily/CK unless CBS or Sony doesn't want her around.

i'm fairly certain the window's boarded up. She's too old, isn't the best actress, and was never revered for her beauty... get into production or bts stuffs, I guess.

I wouldn't mind seeing Lily eventually befriend some women in prison and even promise to help them turn their lives around after she/they get out.

 

Well, at least it would give her something else to do besides kiss and canoodle all the damn time with Cane.

Interesting casting news. So we might have Kerry and maybe Candace later on. And I could definitely see Arturo's younger sister Lola with Kyle. Hopefully, she can act and they have decent chemistry together. IMO, they are wasting Kyle on Summer. It's time to get him a decent love interest.

I think her and prison could be an interesting storyline. I wonder if we will see much of her behind bars, or if she really will go away and not be seen at all for a while, and we just hear about Cane/the kids visiting her in prison. Maybe if they go that route but she returns later on, they might write a storyline about the impact that prison has had on her. And we could still eventually see her meeting up with people that she knew from prison.
