YR actress decides to go recurring...

I'm not blaming you, meaning this board, at all. Just pointing out how the show is finally hearing the loud cries that echoed through threads of this board for years. When it was announced that Mishael was leaving, the first thing I saw was that Bryton needed to go with her and didn't deserve his place on the show. 

 

You, specifically, may not have complained about CK. But the complaints were listed here on the regular my many others. 

 

While ever complaint Ive read here is valid and I agree with them, I can't help but think the show is giving folks exactly what they asked for. Now if Amelia Heinle is next...

 

 

 

The show didn't hear our cries and decide to give a payoff.  They are just discarding something they don't care for and never have.  

 

You don't think not liking the Winters as they are written [and have been for years] is different from wiping out a minority family and replacing them with another as if both can't exist at the same time?  You don't need hypocrisy to feel both.  

 

For the record, I don't like CK and I hate black valley girls, which is what Lily had become.  Davetta was a more realistic Lily IMHO.  However, this is a despicable move by YR and CBS but I don't have to give up the show because I don't watch.  Even as I sit home today, I skipped it.  I'm done and was really done the moment they sent Hillary to TPIR with Neal.  The writing was on the wall AGAIN!  I chose not to ignore it and have not watch YR since. 

 

The real shame is that black women will still watch and root for Sharon, Phyllis and Victoria.  Bait and Switch really does work, which is why black characters are never long term leads (if at all), they remain supporting characters - makes them very easy to get rid of.  Bring them in to get viewers attention, make it look as if they are relevant to the canvas, have a white character shadow them until they eventually ease to the forefront, reduce the airtime of the person viewers came for as the viewers, who don't realize they've just been duped, salivate over the white character who just hijacked the story.

I feel the character is needed but im sorry Lily has teens and CK just turned 30. They need to cast an actress in her late 30's to early 40's. That has nothing to do with her acting. Its that CK looks like her kids sister/friend not Mom and its jarring to me

If that had been the extent of the complaints, I'd agree with you. However, it went beyond that. Many complaints blamed the actors looks and abilities for the writing. The actually marginalization was ignored to level disparagement at  the actors. You know this to be true as well as I do. Thusly, hypocrisy. 

 

That being said, I agree with everything else. The show does what the show will. As long as Black women continue to watch and accept this treatment, black characters and the folks that play then will continue be crapped on. But I don't think there will be any black folks left on Y&R this time next year. Nate doesn't work and history isn't on new woman's side.

Making Christel play mom to kids who look like her siblings was a massive mistake. Personally I think they were trying to force her out over it. But I have nothing to back up that assumption.

I think they aged them for Reed to give more story to Billy.  He, being Billy, was more important than Lily's future.

True. Another way to possibly look at it. You're probably right in that Lily was an afterthought. 

 

Isn't it great that two recasts have taken over the show?

 

The show has been SO damaged.

And they got rid of Reed who was the best of their teen set in my opinion of course

 

I want to like Charlie and Mattie. I was meh on Reed at first but he was growing on me. I definitely think it was a mistake to dump him.

There was no need to age the Ashby twins for JT, who technically  is a year younger than Summer, they could've sorased  Moses, give Hiliary a baby Sis or Cousin, and create  another Female character for a teen quad

 

I say get rid of the Ashbys and Devon, keep Neil, Nate , and soras Moses.  Really Nate or Devon are interchangeable, cept Devon has history as opposed to Nate who is a brand new canvas to write for!

Nate has history. He is a Winters. But I'd keep Devon and pretend to give a chit about him just a little. The man is a Chancellor FFS!

I meant Nate as an adult, his past,  past loves, etc..

 

Like Mac, Devon is not a Chancellor, he is Kay's grandson, just saying!
