HomeTVThe Young and The RestlessThe News Isn’t Good For Summer on Y&R Luke Kerr July 14, 2009 The Young and The Restless 37 Comments Phyllis (Michelle Stafford)and Nick (Joshua Morrow) receive some overwhelming news about Summer’s recovery on The Young and the Restless. 37 Responses siomonstuart2003 July 14, 2009 Why is Y&R depressing us even more? I know that this is drama, but I am so sick of the hospital scenes and most of the characters being sad. I want some happy moments. Log in to Reply SoapSnob July 14, 2009 Perhaps this story development could lead to the discovery that Jack, not Nick, is Summer’s father… Log in to Reply soapjunkie88 July 14, 2009 Oh please this storyline should be over since like yesterday. The quad just isn’t working for me anymore. At least not for some time. The only good thing that could come out of this is like @SoapSnob said that Jack is Summer’s father. But since the haters would call that plot driven storytelling … IDK if I should even wish for it. LOL Phyllis needs to move on … Deacon Sharpe is in town, get over with Summer’s heath problems and let her move on from Nick. Log in to Reply josser July 14, 2009 Siomonstuart, There have been some fun scenes lately. Summers illness will open all kinds of drama eventually between Victor and the rest of Summer’s loved ones. Imagine the fury that will be unleashed once every knows that Victor brought Mary Jane to town. Nick, Phyllis, Noah, and the rest will want to shun him for being a party to Summer’s injuries. TGVN will suffer and suffer when the whole sordid details are revealed. As for happy scenes, Y&R is always good about layering and weaving different storylines. However, too many happy scenes would be a snooze fest. Jeff and Gloria will bring some needed comic relief shortly. Log in to Reply terrifictam July 14, 2009 I’ve been really enjoy the Summer storyline. I’m loving how all the stories are involving more characters. We see people interacting more with characters they aren’t always with. The little actress that plays Summer is doing a great job too. Log in to Reply timepass July 14, 2009 Too bad I did not care. They change 3 times the person playing Summer and then we saw the last one, one time, and poof I am supposed to care? Seriously? I do not care for Summer, I do not care for this story, nick is changing his mind so oftern I don’t trust one word out of his mouth. Phyllis playing the Stepford mama does not work at all, Love Ms but I think that MS is awful in stories with children, so unnatural. And Yes, I am a Phyllis Fan, but it’s been awhile since I saw the real Phyllis! This version is worst than LML version! Log in to Reply siomonstuart2003 July 14, 2009 I love the Phyllis when she trapped Danny into marriage and ran over Paul and Chris with the car and she was a badass. Now she is a wimping mess just like Sharon and she to take JerKNick back is not in Phyllis character. She would of kick him in the you know what and say forget it. I am so over the quad that it isn’t even funny anymore. The writers overplayed them and the fans are getting mad about it. Log in to Reply reggyreg July 14, 2009 Why would anyone want Phyllis to be a sociopath. Do you really want her to return to her car hitting days so she can be written into a corner. She can’t be psychotic forever. Log in to Reply siomonstuart2003 July 14, 2009 I rather her be a sociopath than be another wimping mess like Sharon. Phyllis would of look for MJ and bust her up. She is crazier than MJ is. Log in to Reply Smitty July 14, 2009 reggyreg as soon as she returned to a being a sociopath then it would be why is Phyliss doing this. Doesn’t make sense for her to go back to those earlier days. The character of Phyliss has grown. She was never a one note villan. Now if she started doing all that stuff again then everyone would be complaining that Y&R is writing Phyliss into a corner. I like this storyline and am enjoying it. Log in to Reply Camp is not a sustainable model July 14, 2009 Edmund: Who wants to play stable? Unstable is her talent! Celeste is and always will be the Queen of Misery. And we are going to milk it for every amount of publicity we can! (To Rose.) Wouldn’t you agree? Rose: I’d say Amen. That is a quote from Soapdish. It applies and says it all. Log in to Reply Camp is not a sustainable model July 14, 2009 Of course with these writers you will end up this: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mcLPsvnMFyA Log in to Reply reggyreg July 14, 2009 Smitty, as usual, I agree with you. I can see the naysayers saying that changing Phyllis back into a wack job proves that Y&R has grown all dark and macabre. I think MS is doing a great job. You always want to see growth in the characters. I think Y&R is on fire right now and I am enjoying every minute of it! Log in to Reply Mike Jubinville July 14, 2009 Jeff and Gloria will bring some needed comic relief shortly. Bite ur tongue Joss. I haven’t even noticed they’re gone! Log in to Reply Jillian Bowe July 14, 2009 Say it again hubby! SAY IT AGAIN! Jeff and Gloria needs to GO! Log in to Reply siomonstuart2003 July 14, 2009 Jillian, I with you. They can you that money for MTS and bring Victoria Rowell back. Log in to Reply Camp is not a sustainable model July 14, 2009 VR is your money shot. She is free press. Who wants to interview MTS? no one! Log in to Reply Camp is not a sustainable model July 14, 2009 Sorry Jillian in the acting department Judith Chapman makes MTS look like Vail Bloom. Judith is an ACTRESS to the 10th degree. In fact anyone just about upstage MTS in the acting department. She needs to go to American Academy of Dramatic arts and takes some lessons. Log in to Reply josser July 15, 2009 Jillian, You’re great and so are Jeff and Gloria. Those two are demented, twisted fun. I agree with Nelson Branco that Ted Shackleford is great. I don’t want them front and center but as supporting characters, Jeff and Gloria are fun. Log in to Reply Jillian Bowe July 15, 2009 David that’s your opinion. Mine along with many others differ. If Judith’s such a thespian then why did your favorite pastime of ratings bashing DIP when she was on 24/7? Again I’ve NEVER said MTS was worthy of being called the new Katherine Hepburn if your going to try and bite what I say, then you need to do it correctly when I say she’s not a acting school grad. Log in to Reply siomonstuart2003 July 15, 2009 Jillian, you agree with me that Phyllis would never took the Jerk Nick back after what he did to her. Log in to Reply Jillian Bowe July 15, 2009 Again we like Y&R David and EVERYONE knows you dislike the show. That’s all on you if you don’t like it. That’s why my name is Jillian and NOT David. You think Y&R’s like Passions, Passions couldn’t be Y&R even on Y&R’s WORST days. That’s MY take on what’s being given on the show. It seems as though you want DC to agree with your take on Y&R, WE DON’T. That’s what makes people individuals and no two people the same. Siomon Phyllis shoulnd’t take Nick back. Now I agree with that statement. She should cut her losses. Log in to Reply Camp is not a sustainable model July 15, 2009 Hold up a minute. Pull yourself together. Cause you don’t know me. What I want you couldn’t even give on the best day and that is consistency. So I know what to expect. I’m just going to correct those missteps. So there you have it. Take it our leave it. “I’ve got a sharp tongue and been known to cut a few people with it. Get use to it. Log in to Reply Jillian Bowe July 15, 2009 I’m perfectly pulled together obviously you are the one with a problem since you are attacking me. Your freaking out over a soap…. Log in to Reply josser July 15, 2009 Jillian, Smitty and I still heart you! You’re our Y&R superstar girl! Ignore the haters. Log in to Reply Camp is not a sustainable model July 15, 2009 I haven’t attacked you yet. You’ll know when the stealth bombers arrive. Just don’t tell me what I am about and what I want cause you don’t know. Now we can take a few breaths and get back to the discussion. “Chow for now!” Log in to Reply Jillian Bowe July 15, 2009 David please just because I joke on the podcast and here doesn’t mean you know me. Get a grip its a SOAP OPERA. If you don’t like what I have to say you can just overlook it and keep it moving. Josstheguy behave now! Log in to Reply Smitty July 15, 2009 Smitty and I still heart you! You’re our Y&R superstar girl! Ignore the haters. *** josstheguy I’m sorry but I have to disagree with you…Jillian is MY Y&R SUPERSTAR GIRL and I don’t share…LOL!!!! Log in to Reply Luke Kerr July 15, 2009 Smitty and Josstheguy be careful, Jillian’s hubby Mike might come for you if you get fresh with her. lol Log in to Reply Jillian Bowe July 15, 2009 Luke What Mike doesn’t know won’t hurt em no? Log in to Reply Smitty July 15, 2009 Luke…Mike had her…now she’s MINE…LOL!!!! (Ok that may come off a little creepy but it’s a joke) Log in to Reply Jillian Bowe July 15, 2009 Smitty it sounded hoe-ish! *LMAO!* We get what you mean. SoapSnob u rep your BD! Log in to Reply eightiesaddict July 15, 2009 Good Lord, there is more drama on the blog than Y&R. I am loving the show, especially MJ, Kitty, and Adam. As for Summer, the actress looks like is almost laughing when the camera cuts to her. It is very distracting, but cute. I love Phyllis, but I would enjoy her telling Nick to take a hike. He is one of the most fickle male leads ever on soaps. He is the male Brenda Barrett. Also, he had time to get a haircut in the middle of his daughter’s medical crisis. How selfish! Log in to Reply Mike Jubinville July 15, 2009 Luke What Mike doesn’t know won’t hurt em no? Scusi? Log in to Reply siomonstuart2003 July 15, 2009 Phyllis needs to kick Nick to the curb like Jillian said. and stay single for a while. Log in to Reply SoapSnob July 15, 2009 Jillian, as no one else wants to represent Brenda Dickson, I thought I would give her some “love” by posting my absolute favorite picture of Brenda. I am giving Beverlee McKinsey a rest for a few weeks, but Beverlee will be back. On subject, I do NOT believe that Phyllis would take Nick back. (Just like I do not believe that Sharon would lie to Nick about the paternity of the baby.) So, I am disappointed. But, I am sure that MAB and company have a trick up their sleeve. Like… Giving Nick a taste of his own medicine by having Phyllis get HOT and STEAMY with Deacon. Michelle Stafford and Sean Kanan have not even shared a scene together, but you just KNOW they (and their characters) will have FIRE chemistry. Just for a moment, imagine the storyline possibilities that could have organically sprung from Sharon telling Nick the truth about their unborn baby. Or Phyllis slapping Nick’s face (hard) and telling him to go to hell when he attempted reconciliation. Log in to Reply Camp is not a sustainable model July 15, 2009 You mean like Hitchcockin’ Y&R? lol I had to play that for co-workers. We all laughed..that was a hoot! We laughed because that was the best joke of the day. But thanks. Don’t confuse Hitchcock with Reilly. Shame on you guys!
