And people wonder why the soaps are never called out for how they treat their black actors.

LOL. Ultimately it’s SOD’s responsibility to have their correct image of actors in their magazines, but it’s funny that Shutterstock apologized in that thread for mislabeling that Kym Whitley image as Jackée. If I were SOD, I might think about using another image repository.

Looks like Vanessa Williams is still around and possibly Theo is back. I'm curious what story hiring Jackee gives all of them and Abe/Lani/Eli.

I was happy to see Theo back and that Valerie is still around. I hope they do Jackee justice and I’m still hoping they give Vanessa Williams something worth her talent. She really sparkles in her scenes with what little they give her. Now that Elani is established as a solid couple they have gold if they choose to write for these black actors.

Someone was guessing that the actor wearing the Day & Night shirt

was playing a male character, perhaps Theo.

But the hairstyle doesn't match the actor who played recast Theo in November.

To me, it looks like it might be a female actor who has short hair.  Jackée says her character Paulina has a daughter.



Ohhh, right. Good catch.

I had wondered if that actor/actress is playing Paulina's daughter,

but now I guess not.



Lamon in an Jan 27th interview:
 “There will be quite a few new African Americans on the show. They are characters that the fans have been waiting to see, and will be happy to see. So, things will be looking a little different in Salem which is a good thing.”






Jackée's character Paulina has a daughter.

Paulina's daughter is named "Chanel" 

and Chanel is played by actress Precious Way:

Precious Way:


Way has been a savant from an early age. She graduated high school early at 16 after realizing her passion was in music and entertainment. Her first nationally released single, Watch Me Go, made its radio debut in 2018, which lead to her touring and performing at festivals and venues, including Times Square and Disney World. After this, she began acting professionally and participated in the American Black Film Festival competition, going on to book a co-lead role in Partners in Rhyme for Urban Movie Chanel. The series comes from female hip hop legend MC Lyte, who produces and co-stars along with Martin and The Jamie Foxx Show Executive Producer, Bentley Kyle Evans.



"Way is an established musician and actress. Her first single “Watch Me Go” debuted nationally in 2018. ................. After the debut of her single, Way turned her eye to acting and landed the co-lead role of Luscious T in the upcoming series Partners in Rhyme for Urban Movie Chanel. The series was developed and created by MC Lyte, who also produces and co-stars as Lana Crawford."

Sounds like a spiritual. "Lord hear what I pray, send me down your precious way".




But seriously.  Some of the names we (African-Americans) plop down on our offspring go past self-parody.

    • First...*waves @Mr. Vixen* and congrats on the next book.   I think...it's Brenda so what could go wrong? Please register in order to view this content   But seriously, it is a great concept. And ohhh how my mind sees so many angles and what you wrote. I would love to see a series like this.   As for me...I might have to chew on what I would do as a spinoff for a spell...:) 
    • Would these rather creepy drawings entice you to devote 1 hr each morning to 2 new soaps?
    • RHOD   Now that was much, much better.   So clearly for me, it had to be who was spotlighted. For the last few episodes, the focus has been on Brandi, Kary, and Stephanie with LeeAndra, Tiffany, and Kameron getting moments here and there, but most in the background. This episode was the end of the Oaklahoma trip and heading back to Dallas. Once there, the show shifted to individual scenes so it was only natural that it shifted since the stronger people with individual scenes (and are still somewhat likeable) are LeeAndra, Tiffany, and Kameron. And I liked all of them. And ooooo at the next leg of the LeeAndra family drama. I keep saying...she's so what soap opera heroines are made of. And as usual...the next nugget she gave in the saga of her vs her brother produced new questions. Hopefully, the answers will start to be revealed as LeeAndra goes to meet with her mother-in-law next week.    Meanwhile, the trip started boring AF. But it ended in a good place I felt. The highlight for me was Tiffany, Kameron, and Brandi (yes, I said Brandi) performing the Bend and Snap from LEGALLY BLONDE as their warmup routine for the series of games Stephanie had set up for everybody. And not shocked that Kary does not know how to give a sincere apology so her trying to apologize to Charles the guy from last week fell flat for me.    And surely I am not the only person who saw that Brandi was clearly preggers on the trip.    Things to make you go hmmmm...   LEEANDRA. Well, well, well. Where do I start? Just like Ashley Abbott finding out that John Abbott was not her dad shattered her, there appears to be more to the story of the events surrounding LeeAndra's Dad's death. And as she was talking to Jeremy, for the first time I wondered if she had considered therapy or hmmm hypnotism? It sounded like either she was editing herself for television or that she might have blocked some of that day out. I thought she had been the one to find the body if I remember correctly...or am I wrong? She definitely saw it. And the reveal of her finding out that her mother-in-law put the one will on the bed day of death...and then Mama Dee's actions with the other will....and I'm wondering how BOTH of the moms factored into the breakdown in the relationship between LeeAndra and her brother. I get LeeAndra's reasoning for not telling him of the death immediately, but it sounded like the mother in law went all out to keep them separated. And then...Mama Dee made a deal with the Dad insuring that LeeAndra would get the inheritance in the first place. But then Mother in Law pushed for a court fight. I mean...WOW!!! This was just the stuff of good soaps. I'll say this much...LeeAndra's relationship with her family has always been her throughline throughout her time on the show and it continued to bear so much fruit for her. And that fruit continues to be juicy. And yes, I love the followup from the letter a few episodes back.    KAMERON. God, Court is hot. lol. That said...I enjoyed her misadventures with moving this week. The packing. The ribbing from Court. The psychic from an earlier episode. Court accepting it all even with an eyeroll. Who didn't like Kameron's dog? It has been natural that she is still mourning Louie and worrying about him as she moves into her dream house. Meanwhile, Kameron was fun on the trip...except for when she got angry over the bed prank that went wrong. Yeaaah...mess with my sleep, I'm a bitca, too. Please register in order to view this content   TIFFANY. Wow at her and Kameron getting along. If only it would last. Meanwhile awwww at her and her mother coming to some understanding. That was a talk that needed to happen.  Tiffany always brings the real and I will be sadden if she does decide to leave at the end of this season. And I hollered at her and the twins' science project. That was my project in elementary school so it was a cute little walk down memory lane.   BRANDI. *side-eye*   STEPHANIE. Who?   KARY. Lint.   So next week we are going to be on the mansion from DALLAS? Good. That means also we are at the end of the season.              
    • They said the show is so bad they no longer have the energy to keep up with it. 
    • Yes, the 'I'm blind and will be a burden so I'll be noble and lie' was something out of a 1930's radio soap and didn't work in 1976. Bill should have been more inventive in finding away to create a wedge b/w Brad and Leslie.
