funny I was thinking Jennifer Foster but I’d think she be too young and they aren’t that smart to even think to bring back a legacy character of that era.

 

i guess they could just have her be Sally?

She’s fabulous, and it’s great that she found work during this uncertain time.


But Y&R is so bad, y’all. I’m not quite sure if it’s a step up or a step down. It’s listless where B&B is mind-numbingly stupid.

Congrats to her! Glad to see her continue on daytime, for now. 

 

You know B&B dropped the ball and let go of a great find when Y&R snatches 'em right up... 

 

Granted, Y&R's in the dumps right now, but at least there's more long-term promise of a contract than DAYS

I’m glad to hear this for her!! She will definitely be good at Y&R and hopefully her presence will liven up the show, she’s already proven she rise wayyy above insufferable writing.

I'm thrilled! Everyone knows I think so highly of CH. So many options: 1) bringing her on as S2 is not a bad move, 2) a Summer recast has always been on my wish list or 3) a new character.

 

Don't care what role. She's a welcome addition to the show.

Talented actress and I'm glad she's staying within the Bell universe. The question is do they use her as Sally to give the character a reset or is she someone new entirely or a recast for an existing Y&R role.

I would love to have her as Sally Spectra having a new beginning. If they would be clever, they could write her in a storyline with Lauren, who was very close to her the real Sally once. But I guess it will never happen.

Congrats to her. She is too talented to not be somewhere. I would love to see her as either S2, Heather, or someone new period. I would prefer one of the first two. Better odds of her not being written out.

 I shouldn’t be but the fact they will have her in scenes with Lauren who was once her aunts partner in crime, is a good thing!

    • Yuh-Jung Youn just won the Supporting Actress BAFTA, which is a boost for her Oscar prospects. Would be only the second actress of Asian descent (to my knowledge) to win an Oscar after Miyoshi Umeki for Sayonara in 1958.

    • Wendy Riche spoke about dealing with the network when she wanted to tell an AIDS story before the Labine had decided on Stone and Robin. She had gone to the network about having A.J. Quartermaine contract the disease from a situation that would leave people asking who slept with who. Of course, it's also rumored that Marland intended for Hank Eliot, not his lover Charles, to die of the disease. In both scenarios, there is definitely a concern about perpetuating a stereotype that gay men are promiscuous.    Here's the transcript from the Riche interview on WeLoveSoaps:     I'm watching a bit of 1995. There is a scene that I watched, before seeing this more recently, where A.J. shows up at the gatehouse and crashes a girls' night with Brenda and Lois. I believe the purpose of the scene is for Ned to walk in and be upset that A.J. is meddling, but there are moments where I feel like A.J. enjoyed just dishing the dirt with the ladies and that the show was testing the waters at pre- "Will and Grace" dynamic between A.J. and the ladies. It's entirely possible I completely misread the scene as well.   
    • It’s hard. These shows just weren’t built with us in mind. I feel like there was a small window to tell really strong LGBTQ stories in the early-to-mid ‘90s when society had advanced enough to be somewhat inclusive and soaps had become more grounded after their ‘80s flights of fancy yet still had quality and budget.     These remaining soaps are a lost cause. They are essentially zombies coasting on a mostly conservative audience born before the Kennedy administration. They can barely tell watchable stories about *anything.*   Most primetime portrayals don’t even really do it for me. Ryan Murphy has been an absolute scourge. The best screen depictions of gay men for me have always been movies like “My Beautiful Laundrette” and “Happy Together” and the rare TV series like the British version of “Queer As Folk.” (Hope the new one set in New Orleans can approach that quality.)
    • I agree with y'all, and I guess that's why I'm easier on soaps and other shows if they don't necessarily get it right. I'm not easy on them enough to still watch or support something I don't like, but I do think that "trying" is worth something. After being excited for a short while, I ended up absolutely HATING Luke/Noah on ATWT and thought they were embarrassing. But other gay men, especially the older ones who'd been watching the show for years and years, loved them. So while they just made me roll my eyes, I understood that they meant more to others. Still wanted that relationship blown to smithereens for something more fun, but y'know. GLEE. I hated it. But what it did for many gay youth can't be denied. I know that someone will reply that there were other majorly problematic things with the show, but my point is that it served tons of gay kids who otherwise would not have gotten that confidence boost or feeling of community.
