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.

    • Have been scrolling through a site with random old Australian TV listings and discovered that ATWT aired in primetime in Sydney on Ch 7 in 1974! It's from Thursday Nov 28th at 8.30pm, This is the blurb... Carol returns home and asks Tom to give up Natalie Bannon's case. Grant and Joyce have a showdown and Grant decides not to divorce her until she has fully recovered. So it seems not to far behind the US storylines. Quite frankly I'm surprised that Oz execs would take to a daytime soap that had been running for nearly 20 years and expect viewers to be interested. Meanwhile the same channel was airing DOOL, Y&R and GH during the day. The Melbourne listings for the same evening do not have ATWT in the schedule, in fact the entire schedule was different. So it looks like ATWT was Sydney only exclusive. Wonder if it was nightly and how long it lasted?
    • Ahem, did we know that Tanner Novlan (Dr. Finn Without Personality) is married to actress Kayla Ewell who starred on B&B from 2004-2005 as Caitlin Ramirez (daughter of Sydney Penny and Lorenzo Lamas) who was Thomas' first teen love!?   We now go back to your regular scheduled programming in session...
    • I love me some Lauren but had to laugh at her lecturing Sally and Summer on women treating women well. Send them an ice cream sundae why don’t you Lauren?
