Katherine and Jill Find Out Phillip is Gay on Y&R




Last week Phillip (Thom Bierdz) revealed "his truth" to Nina (Tricia Cast). Today he revealed to Jill (Jess Walton) and Katherine (Jeanne Cooper) he is gay. In scenes at the Chancellor mansion, he told them he was forced to leave because he couldn't be what they wanted and that he didn't fit in.

Katherine didn't give an inch, asking why he "can't be honest" and "help them learn and accept who he is." Pointing at Phillip, she told him he "took the cowards way out" and "compounded it a hundred times over by sending Cane to take his place." Jill was no slouch either, telling Phillip he made Katherine believe she had done the "unspeakable" in giving away Jill's baby. 

Even after this Phillip maintained that Cane "helped them get past it" and that "through him I was finally able to to make you guys happy." Her voice trembling in a mix of anger and pain Katherine responded "Two bloody years of happiness versus 20 years of loss," she continued "do you really think that is a fair trade?"

Do you believe Phillip's reasoning and motivation for sending Cane?

Jamey, do you admitted that Bill Bell did a lot of over the top s/ls but most of the other s/ls was a little realistic that the fans just went with it?

I debate facts not fiction. Step your fact game up David and then maybe we could have a reasonable discussion/debate about the state of Y&R. Instead of spending so much time harping on the good ole days of soaps you might want to go to youtube and brush up on your history of Y&R. Once you are finished doing that then come talk to me about Y&R.

Then you lie and distort facts and fail to acknowledge your many mistakes. Says a lot about someone when they continue to piss on you and try and tell you it's raining.

Sorry DC crew but I am more than threw with David and his lies.

Sorry Smitty your game is up! I'm a one man army. I don't need anyone else to hide behind. And I don't need grease. I tell it like it is. Whether you like it or not! All I got to do is stay black and die. So Smitty your insults are going on def ears.

By the way I don't have time for peasants.

I am loving Y&R.

Even though Phillip has been very selfish in his actions, I am so glad he is back (hopefully for good). I think most people are having trouble with the "gay" aspect of the story, as opposed to his selfish behavior. Get real, it is 2009.

The interactions between Kay, Jill, and Nina are classic. Tricia Cast needs to be put on contract STAT.

I am even enjoying Cane and Mac.

Mary Jane is one of the best villians on daytime, but I still feel for her. Even after all her horrible behavior, I still do not want her to caught.

Smitty,

Give it up. Why bother having a discussion if it's the equivalence of putting your head through the microwave door and pressing the on button?

Enjoy what you can enjoy.

One thing I am sure of Bill Bell would love the controversy of Y&R. He was NEVER affraid to break some eggs to get a good soufle out of it. Only one time did he ever back away from controversy and that is when he tried to get Kay into a gay relationship..... Which I am not sure was a bad thing because Kay in a girl on girl sex scene is not exactly good tv!

Y&R's Phillip is kind of an a$$hole! Granted, I didn't watch in the 80s so I have no reference point here, but I agree with Katherine & Jill. No excuse is worth making the people who love you suffer for 20 years!

Just because viewers are mad over their soaps, doesn't mean they shouldn't watch it. I do believe that we have to watch it to save it because they are dropping soaps like flies and I don't want this industry to extinct.
