Even if it does end up being a flop, I will still watch. I would pay money to watch this woman read from the Farmers’ Almanac. She is my all-time favorite soap opera actor of all time!! Y&R is foolish for not asking her back, but I have beaten that dead horse so much that my arms are weak. Life goes on. Vicki is, and always has been, destined for greatness, and I am looking forward to seeing her star rise FURTHER than it already has.

Log in to Reply RCLGuard June 15, 2010 Best soap news I’ve heard all year. I’ll definitely tune in if this happens. Log in to Reply beautreal June 15, 2010 This is just great news I’ll definitely be tuning into this it’ll be just great to see Victoria’s talents be appreciated. And all though it would be a dream come true to see Drucilla back on Y&R the way the show is now I know they’d probably dilute her character so much it wouldn’t be the same as we all remember and loved Log in to Reply Ryan-Scott June 15, 2010 Cool. Log in to Reply Dariclone June 15, 2010 It’s really a sign of the times that new soaps *are* coming but that they’re coming to cable networks instead of mainstream T.V. I really hope we get this in Canada. Log in to Reply RebeccaJ June 16, 2010 I think she’s smart to go this route because at the rate major network soaps are disappearing, who knows how much longer Y&R will be on the air? And I should have included “and with the crappy storylines MAB is forcefeeding us…” Log in to Reply Leave a Reply Cancel Reply You must be logged in to post a comment.
