Well Billy is the only older dude bedding a younger woman. Before that it was older women bedding younger men.I don't know why the young people cant date people their age like in real life. I just hope he doesn't have Phyllis seduce Kyle.  It's bad enough they keep pairing him with his on and off step sister Summer. Phyllis was around him when he was a little kid.

 

In all three situations, the women are written to be the aggressor, with the men giving into their pent up feelings. Still, none of the women have any actual agency in these situations, all will end up as far weaker characters after their dalliances.

It's not even just Y&R either. I saw it on GH and it was played like normal there too.

I couldn't resist jumping ahead to wedding clips...and came across THIS.

 

Oops. Realized I was posted a spoiler from Monday's episode and since I don't know how to do spoiler tags just took it down.

Thanks for posting, @Taoboi . I haven't been watching for the past few weeks and, I'm glad I saw this clip. Perfection.

 

"Was this a little parenting moment?" Little do they know...

Ok, so can Sharon FINALLY slap Phyllis across the face?! Or can Mariah?! I hope that Mariah doesn't let it go and gives Phyllis hell every time she sees her ho ass! I really need this show to bring back good catfights!

I'm kind of shocked Sharon and Phyllis never fought onscreen....that chocolate fountain bit in 2010 was the closest, but it was just played for laughs....I agree they need a good catfight, but I don't think this show has the budget for those anymore...look at Mariah and Hilary's one last year...

The setup for Sharon vs Abby at the beginning of this year (?) over Scott was a good verbal catfight that got physical reaaaal quick.

 

Speaking of which I recommend Monday...or seeing the clips for it online for because the words exchanged was not played for laughs and at this point I would like to also see them GO THERE with those two.

Oh God. That Hilary/Mariah tussle on the GC Buzz set was an embarrassment. Poor staging, poor direction with the claustrophobic shaky cam. We’ll never see the likes of Diane/Nikki in the Jabot office or Jill/Katherine in the attic again.

It wouldn't be that bad if the show still had at least their 2002 budget, but because they don't that fight with Hilary/Mariah was a non-starter....

I totally forgot that Lauren and Sheila had a decent fight on the yatcht and that was 2005, so even that year's budget!

Don't forget Nikki and Diane in Gina's. ;)

 

But Yep...agree.

 

I enjoy your posts, but maybe you could drop the Aiden Hilworth coda after we’ve seen it more than a few times. Can’t you just put up the Amazon link with the book cover?

Why thank you.

 

But since I just changed it after having it the same with another book also WITH links for what...two years now...I think we're good. :)

“Be careful what you wish for” is right.

 

But congratulations on using the message board to advertise your stuff. I have some Beanie Babies and Pez dispensers I might list here.

Oh God I hated the Mariah/Hilary crap! We didn't even see the fight! Just the aftermath, I will not count that nonsense! Sharon/Abby was not bad, I do however wish it had been longer. It's really kind of obnoxious that after all these years Sharon and Phyllis have never gotten physical, especially because Phyllis is such an irritating bitch. The chocolate bullshit, I don't count that either. I'm not really sure about budget as reason though, as we've gotten some pretty good fights between the men. I think it's more of writing choice.
