BTS harassment at Y&R

Wasn’t Morrow threatening to leave, and they bent over backwards to keep him?

 

When Justin Hartley left and Chick flopped, TIIC decided MCE was of no value (not that I disagree) unless they could find her a GC compatible male.  Meanwhile, Morrow is of great value and gets to say he won't do a certain pairing.  I've always been ok with Josh, but he is not talent that you work OT to keep.

Y&R has been mismanaged for so long that they didn’t have any viable leading men. They are very desperate.

This is starting to make sense now. As I mentioned when CK went recurrent, she is the FOURTH high visibility female actor to move from contract status on Y&R in SIX months: MCE, MiM, ED and now CK. Can anyone name a similarly equivalent Y&R male actor that's been clipped during this period?  All four actors have hugely popular fanbases that have been earned, so it's not like they were chopping dead weight. 

 

When was TEB moved to recurring?

It was a long time ago...then she was back on contract, and then on recurring again.

 

The part that interested me was the part about the BTS person who worked at another east coast soap...who has now left. I think that person may be possible to figure out if one looks at credit lists.

Not that she’s the person, but where’s Judy Blye Wilson these days?

That desperation just oozes off the screen. Look how little time it took to get JV naked. I'm expecting to see DB  in a scene as Nate performs open heart surgery  standing naked over the operating table.

Didn't that one writer, last name Hall, come from GH. Who did Susan Dansby write for before Y&R hired her to shut up VR? Maybe Sara Bibel.

Mal probably thinks some shirtless men are all it takes to keep the female viewers.  Obviously it's not working.

Kyle is actually more tolerable now that he has clothes on more often and is being written for outside of showcasing his abs. Waiting for the same to happen to Nate.

I'm not going to speak on Steve Kent or whoever else specifically until we get a real story where the source isn't Tommie Garrett. That said, I have no trouble believing any of it and I wish real media would pick it up because I have absolutely zero faith soap media will.

I feel like you’re right and they’re stupid. If someone from one of the soap mags researches and breaks these stories it would get picked up by mainstream outlets and thus bring them revenue. Idk why everybody is so afraid. They can’t blacklist you! They need you to promote their shows.

Taking my earlier comments about the 4 female actors further, let's look at Y&R's recurrent list:

 

Regularly appearing in 2018:

Female: MA, LB, TEB, JC, BM, JW and now CK. 

Male: CLB, JD, JV (he just joined so I'm sure he'll be offered contract).

 

To be fair, JW and LB seem to have made personal choices. I don't know about the others. 

I excluded KK and LW because they're more 'guest' appearances. TR was recently on GH, so I don't know his status.

TL was on for the arc and that was designed to meet his needs.

 

Who am I missing?

Remember that storyline that lasted all of a day where some women had made allegations of sexism at Newman Enterprises and Victoria and Abby simply scoffed it off?  Uh, whatever happened to that story?:ph34r:

 

That storyline is looking like a not-so-subtle message that any woman reporting sexism or sexual misconduct at a major corporation won't be believed.
