She was a fine actress and the stuff that was written for her character is what did her in. Of course, AMC has a long history of squandering talent with substandard plotting and scripting. Log in to Reply alstonboy4315 June 15, 2010 I think that Yaya is a good actress, but I never liked her on ANTM—I found her to be condescending, arrogant and rude. I hope she’s grown up and stopped believing that she’s the Queen of Sheba (P.S–She isn’t!!!!) Her character on AMC was hideously written, but she did manage to make it bearable. I enjoyed her far more on “Ugly Betty” playing Vanessa Williams’ daughter.

Cassandra arrived in April 2008, then departed in August 2008, right before Pratt’s stuff started airing. I don’t think he had the chance to really write for the character, if even. I remember Pratt gave a statement saying YaYa exited the role, to go on some Broadway show instead. Log in to Reply TV Gord June 16, 2010 My mistake. I forgot there were sucky writers before Pratt, too! Log in to Reply alstonboy4315 June 16, 2010 AllmyDaysatGH– Yeah, the Cassandra character left the show before Pratt came on. I definitely remember that because that was when I started to watch the opening credits EXTRA closely. I had been so underwhelmed with how bad Esensten and Brown were doing–after loving their past works on “The City,” “Loving” GL and “Port Charles”—and was hoping that Chuck Pratt would be coming on soon to REJUVENATE the show. We both know how THAT turned out……………….. Log in to Reply Dariclone June 19, 2010 I’m glad to see she’s habing some success! I thought she would end up like so many other actresses prematurly fired by soaps, never seen again. By the way, when is Cassie coming home? I like Natalia but just because she’s on the show doesn’t mean we can’t expand the Hubbards’ family. Log in to Reply Leave a Reply Cancel Reply You must be logged in to post a comment.
