Swoontastic: My Favorite Y&R Couple Makes the Cover of CBS Soaps In Depth!



While my crabby pants cohorts have yet to be seduced by the majesty that is Villy, I won’t let them diminish the immense pleasure I feel seeing my current, fave CBS soap couple on the cover of this week’s CBS Soaps In Depth. Billy and Victoria (Billy Miller and Amelia Heinle) are so scrumptious together, I want to sop them up with a low carb biscuit!
 
It’s so nice to have some reason to say something kind about The Young and the Restless for a change. Check out the teaser blurb below previewing Villy’s wedding, where that stinky, old Victor (Eric Braeden) tries to eff up the best love story Genoa City has going!

THE YOUNG & THE RESTLESS’ Victoria will forever remember her wedding day — but for all the wrong reasons: Daddy Dearest was responsible for her arrest! Will she ever be able to forgive her father? And what will Victor do when he realizes that his stunt didn’t even prevent his daughter from marrying that rogue, Billy Abbott?

Only CBS Soaps In Depth has all the details of Victoria’s fury and Victor’s next move! Plus, Y&R’s Christian Jules LeBlanc (Michael) takes us on a tour of his hometown of New Orleans, and THE BOLD & THE BEAUTIFUL’s Adrienne Frantz talks about bringing back Amber’s wild ways. And AS THE WORLD TURNS fans won’t want to miss the first part of our farewell tribute, because we’ve rounded up the stars of Oakdale Past to share their fondest memories! It’s all in the new CBS issue of Soaps In Depth, so pick it up today!

    Jamey, ITA, I’ve been loving this couple, they really seem to click. I also think AH’s acting has greatly improved since they’ve removed her from her real life husbands “orbit”. She seems to be enjoying this Villy matchup.

    I didn’t realize you were a JT/Daniel fan.

    Victoria and Billy are a disgusting couple, mostly because Victoria is played by an alien with no talent and no beauty. She can’t act, there is nothing appealing about her. She is repulsive. Billy has slowly turned into a caricature.

    Maybe I could have gotten behind this couple if the original actors were in the roles (Heather Tom and David-something), but these two have no chemistry and hog screen time from people who deserve it, thus ruining the show.

    Love Billy and Victoria. Loved everything about their wedding tho I STILL feel that it coulda been done a little more dramatically at the end with the arrest and all. But then again, the wonderful background scores are disappearing again…so meh…

    As for the rest of Y&R…I’m really kinda enjoying it. And hopefully this Chance thing is over, so I can REALLY REALLY enjoy it, possibly LOVE it again.

    Not really. The show could just not have shown kissing or sex scenes and just implied them instead like they did with Rafe and Adam’s gay kissing/sex.

    Holy God, I didn’t even realize till you guys mentioned it. Origional Vicky and Original Billy were REAL SIBLINGS!! BAAAHAHAAA!!

    I freakishly fell in SWOON with Billy Miller when he was on AMC (turning various shades of red admitting that I used to watch that junk) and won’t BASH Amelia, but I get what loathers are saying. THAT SAID…. Billy Miller’s chem with EVERYYYYONE makes this a root worthy couple.

    Cantchya just cut Amelia Heinle a little slack? Wipe the slate clean going forward… I love this coupling!

    No. The witch has been ruining the role of Victoria with her non-talent, no emotion, and lack of personal hygiene (and a hairbrush) for the last, what, 6 or 7 years now? She’s AWFUL and she’d be the FIRST person I’d fire if I ran Y&R.

    I understand the remarks on the hair. The day she pranced around Billy’s Double Wide looking like Cousin It was probably the scariest day I’ve watched since Sabrina was airing (please hold while I wretch) But I think the writers/hair dept was trying to convey “SHE’S QUIT NEWMAN, SHE’S OFF THE RANCH AND CANNOT AFFORD A FLAT IRON ANYMORE”

    Peronally, Jason Driscoll is (was??) the biggest culprit of no talent. ( and I hate to be so rude, poor guy) but he’d try to be all bad ass and I’d LAUGH AND LAUGH AND LAUGH.

    I look through Billy Miller colored glasses, so I don’t loathe the Vicky many of you do. But the minute she cheats on Billy, she’s DEAD TO ME!!! :-)

    Well it’s been a while since I like a couple on Y&R and yes I like Villy.

    I still think it would be even more fantastic with a talented actress instead of cousin it, but Billy Miller make her bearable!

    This storyline is well written, do we know who is responsible?

    Okay, this wedding was pretty damned good, but I found myself more intrigued by Chance’s “death,” coupled with Nina finding out that Ronan is her long lost baby boy.

    The dress was a little too FROU FROU for me, and this whole ceremony was a little too ‘saccharin.’ I almost got a cavity from watching. I preferred the drunken Jamaican wedding. At least that wasn’t contrived. Call me crazy, but I prefer non-traditional ceremonies where I don’t walk away with a cavity from all the sappy melodramatic sentiments.

    There were a few moments of golden comedy mixed in, but I simply was not BLOWN away. The supporting characters like Nikki, Deacon, Katherine, Jill and Mary Alice….(oops, I mean Phyllis!) were what REALLY made this wedding the most interesting. And that subtle flirting between Phillip and Rafe was so “blink and you missed it” that I am starting to wonder if the writers are even gonna take these two seriously, as a couple or as single characters.

    And Amelia Heinle HAS been cut plenty of slack, despite the fact that she SUCKS—-TPIC have kept her around for over 5 years, overlooking the elephant in the room, which probably has written across it’s side “Who taught this chick how to act?”

    Her scenes fall flat for me 95% of the time, and as I’ve said before, Billy Miller holds this pairing up on his broad shoulders EACH scene, EACH day!!!

    And when she got arrested in the end, she couldn’t even channel the proper emotion….it’s almost like she was half asleep!!! What a horrible “performance.”

    You are so right Jamey, Billy and Victoria are swoontastic for sure! I have never in my years of watching soaps have seen a couple have so much chemistry. I absolutely adore this couple. YR struck gold when they paired these two! I hope they keep them together for a long time. :)

    I could not agree with you more Jamey!!! Billy and Victoria are not just my favorite current soap couple but they’ve become my alltime favorite soap couple! Amelia and Billy are just magical together. Maria Bell or whoever chose to pair them together is a genius for seeing the storyline potential and immense chemistry between the actors that so many fans have fallen in love with. Both Amelia and Billy deserve equal credit for this great pairing because it’s their chemistry and acting partnership that has made the couple so irresistible. I’m so happy to see them both getting such great promotion and recognition from fans, critics, and the soap mags. Honestly I’m shocked at some of the nasty comments on here directed at a real life person not a character. I’m happy to be in such great company with yourself and the many, many fans who love and adore this couple and the actors!

    Swoontastic is right! I love, love, love did I mention love these two?! Most gorgeous and hottest couple ever that’s for sure. I’ll definitely be picking up a copy of this issue of SID. I was alternately crying and swooning yesterday at their vows. Billy Miller is the man, and Amelia Heinle is definitely the woman to match him. I love that Y&R is finally giving her some good material and she’s been knocking it out of the park. I watch Y&R at work every day with a bunch of ladies and a couple guys, and the only thing we all agree on is that we all love this couple. Well that and we all hate this new Heather too lol.

    Go Villy! Best thing in soaps right now!

    I think the writing for this couple is pretty good, but the reason why I can’t really root for them is because of Amelia Heinle. Like others have said, her acting is so stiff. She barely shows emotions and when she does she acts like she is at a Hannah Montana concert. This storyline would be great if Gina Tognoni was portraying Victoria. She should have said “yes” to Y&R.

    I love Billy and Amelia together and I agree with all of your comments Jamey. It has been a long while since I actually cared for a coupling on a soap and I love this one. To whomever decided to put these two together. Thank you very very much. I can actually enjoy following a soap couple again.

    The dress was an actual copy of the one worn by Audrey Hepburn when she married in the 1950s/1960s in a movie. The show was supposed to be kind of “saccharine-sweet” because of Billy and Victoria’s love of the 1950s/1960s sitcoms, “Leave it to Beaver,” “Father Knows Best,” “Make Room for Daddy,” “The Brady Bunch” and others. Elinor Donahue (who played Judge Anderson) actually played Betty Anderson on “Father Knows Best,” the show that Billy and Victoria watched and realized that they loved the same things in life…simplicity, kindness, family and the kind of life that used to be where all problems were solved in 30 minutes.

    I actually thought that the wedding and the courtship have been quite nice, having grown up during those eras myself. Life WAS simpler, people seemed to be kinder and more loving, families were more important than TV, phones, jobs, nearly anything other than education or church. We took pride in our homes, our children, our church, our jobs, our lives, our country, and it seemed as though we lived an idyllic life of peace, kindness and sweetness.

    Granted, that wasn’t really true all the time, but it sure seemed to be, and definitely was moreso than today…

    Y&R gave us a fantasy wedding and romance with Billy and Victoria. Some of us loved the whole thing, and are looking forward to them having a wonderful life together. Some of the fans hate them together, but then, some hated Phyllis and Nick, Sharon and Adam, Nikki and Victor…the list could go on and on. There are fans who will love Villy and those who won’t. You don’t have to jump on the bandwagon to enjoy the romance of the wedding, though, and that was lovely, even with vicious Victor’s arrest of his own daughter.

    How that storyline will play out now, considering she’s Mrs. Billy Abbott now and not under Daddy-dearest’s thumb, is something that I, personally, am looking forward to watching…

    The Amelia hate on this site is scary and it’s sad that many Villy fans won’t come here because of it. Luckily there’s many other sites that don’t allow an actress to be called an alien or a witch and there are plenty of Amelia fans everywhere online and offline. My whole work group that watches thinks she’s fantastic and she was just voted the #6 favorite actress in daytime on another site so please don’t speak for the 5 million fans that watch Y&R many of whom adore Amelia and love both parts that make up Villy. No need to feel sorry for us :)

    GROSS! I just DO NOT like this couple. If Victoria were Abby’s age maybe. But no matter how much MAB wants me to ignore history and age, I just can’t!

    I picture Victoria with Ryan McNeil and Cole Howard…not with Billy Abbott! Ten years ago, she was an executive at Newman’s Brass and Sassy while he was in HIGH SCHOOL getting drunk, dating Britney while swooning after Mac.

    I just can’t forget about that!

    Plus, Ameila Heinle is a HORRIBLE actress. No emotions. No strength. I cannot wait until FAKEtoria is off my screen!

    Amelia Heinle wouldn’t have chemistry with a tin can. She is a lifeless non-entity who should’ve been fired ages ago. Those flashbacks of little Victoria proved that even that little girl is a better Vicki than Amelia!! My God, hire her back and de-age the character! Anyone but Amelia!!

    Thank you for saying this! I’m glad to see some Villy fans braving the hate on here…but yes almost every Villy fan I know won’t touch this site with a ten foot pole because of the heinous Amelia bashing by a few posters. Thank goodness for links so we can still read wonderful things like this from Jamey who we love! Spread that Villy love Jamey and know that TONS of fans are right there with you loving this amazing couple even if they’re not posting on here because of the bashing. That’s why you’ve got to love polls because they show what the majority thinks including those who aren’t posting and the majority is definitely in Villy and Amelia’s favor everywhere by a large margin. Long live Villy!

    Ha the Amelia hate on this board is a problem now that she is paired with Billy Miller. A pairing that many like. Ha laughable.

    My Amelia hate is well documented and it started long before you all began to like her with this pairing.

    She’s not Victoria and never will be. I will probably post this in every Billy/Victoria thread. Hopefully it doesn’t scare you fans off. Just my opinion don’t let it stop you. If you like them say it and don’t worry about those of us who don’t.

    NOBODY should be afraid to voice his or her opinions here, as long as it’s done intelligently, logically, reasonably and without unnecessary personal attacks. Hell, we are all grown (I think! :crown: ), and 95% of us ACT like mature adults on a fairly consistent basis—-the other 5%??? You know who you are, and I rebuke you in the name of Jesus……. ;) ;)

    Concerning Amelia Heinle, I will say what I have ALWAYS said—actors get paid a LOT of money to pretend to be someone else. Those special few who simply “can’t get it right,” and seem to be making no effort to improve themselves (acting classes, anyone?????) deserve to be ridiculed. Especially considering how many enormously talented actors out there who would KILL to have a steady soap opera gig. I simply have no sympathy for those who phone in their performances and give 50%.

    But calling actors “ugly” and ridiculing them on physical attributes that they have little to no control over is crossing the line, and it’s nothing short of tacky. I can honestly say that I have NEVER gone there, regardless of how much I have ever disliked an actor.

    Billy and Victoria are a contrived, silly mess. I feel the FONTRUM (e.g, the embarrassment you feel for others who don’t have the common sense to be embarrassed for themselves) when I see them. Victoria acts like a lobotomized teenager–and not in a good way. AH, honey, bad hair, giggling like a twelve year-old and pulling your hands up around your mouth is not ACTING.

    And honestly, I wouldn’t care, they would just be boring ffwd material for me if I had not formerly liked Billy Miller so much. His charm and wit and grin used to be a natural charismatic part of who Billy Miller as Billy Abbott was. But not it’s just being played for hijinx and jokes as part of some Newmanization of Billy. Instead of Billy Abbott making the jokes, he’s become the joke. He’s a caricature.

    And it’s all because TPTB decided to throw away organic storytelling and instead create some wacky, rushed romance between an Abbott and Newman People Would Recognize on the Cover of a Soap Magazine. Rather than being a rootable couple for me, I feel like they are Mr. and Mrs. Billy Abbott Newman, Inc., e.g, what We Want To Make You Think Is a Great Legacy Couple–rather than a couple that actually IS a great couple.

    Anywho, rant over. Billy is just ffwd material for me from here on out until they get him out of this mess–if they ever do.

    ETA: As for those that complain “oh, I won’t come here because people are mean to Villy!” Seriously? First of all, you are responding to a post on the site gushing about Villy. So obviously, this place is not Villy Hate Central. And second, I certainly don’t think other posters have an obligation to say nice things about “your” couple (which, let’s all keep in mind is fictional, whether you love ‘em or hate’em) so you feel happy here. If you can’t handle the heat, then by all means, please leave the kitchen.

    And as far as those needing to reassure themselves of their ow opinions by purporting to know what “the majority” of other soap fans supposedly feel about Victoria and Billy (which you couldn’t possibly know)….you doth protest (prop?) too much, methinks.

    This story really isn’t about Victoria at all. It’s about getting Billy into conflict with the Newmans, and about Victor doing horrible things which will be forgiven in a few months or less.

    The idea of a woman who is over 40, has been married five times, and has often been put down by patriarchy suddenly deciding she needs to go back to the days when a man ran a woman’s life — if that’s supposed to be romantic, it says a hell of a lot about the people running Y&R.

    Kerfuffles, I agree. I used to like Billy Miller’s Billy, but he’s such a joke now. All he does is ham it up and chew the scenery. My Amelia hate is also well-documented, like Smitty’s, and this pairing is just embarrassing and disgusting. Amelia drags Billy down, making this pairing FF material. Unfortunately, I watch the show live and cannot FF, so I am forced to suffer through their garbage.

    I don’t like the way Amelia portrays Victoria now. It’s like she’s on crack. Especially the day of the wedding. She was just all over the place and it’s annoying. I don’t know whether or not this is her version of ‘light hearted’ but it’s not working for me at all.

    I’ve been watching re-runs of Dynasty. They’re still in the early seasons when Pamela Sue Martin played Fallon. I’d swear that I was watching Amelia Heinle play the part.

    In terms of physical resemblance, acting styles,and characterization, Martin’s Fallon and Heinle’s Victoria are incredibly similar (Take a look at the pic). I’m not going to say anything negative about the actresses. But I will say that Dynasty’s recast of Fallon with Emma Samms, though not popular at the time, was a vast improvement. I want to like Amelia as Victoria but she was a much better actress years ago on Loving. Perhaps, a recast would be in order here too.

    I had to sign up here after reading some of these hateful posts. Honestly it’s like an alternate reality here. I watch Y&R with a bunch of girls in my dorm. We all were swooning at Billy and Victoria’s wedding. I was so happy to find so many fellow Young and the Restless/Billy and Victoria fans to watch my favorite soap with every day. I’m new to the online thing and really just learned the names of actors and actresses. I think the actress that plays the part of Victoria is fantastic. This couple actually made me skip class to watch their wedding. I guess I live in a bubble because I never knew soap fans could be so nasty to actors and actresses. I can’t imagine calling any human being an alien. We make fun of characters when we watch but not actors. I only wish I could be that beautiful and talented. Thanks for the heads up to the original poster about this great couple being on the cover. I will definitely buy a copy. I’ve watched soaps since I was little. Billy and Victoria are the best couple that I have ever seen. I hope they are together for a really long time.

    Oh good grief….if you need the smelling salts after reading the comments here, you don’t get out on the internet much, do you? And interesting there are so many “new” posters just signing up today to express their opinions. Hmmmm. Heh.

    Some people don’t like AH. I personally think she is gorgeous (though the hairstylist at Y&R lately are doing everything in their power to make her look otherwise) and I’m sure is a nice person. But lately, as Victoria, her acting sucks. That may be because she’s been given such ridiculous material to play and been told to play it a certain way–I dunno. But suck she does.

    Sorry, people are not required to just say NICE things about people’s acting.

    alstonboy and BillyMillerFan … I can see both of your points of view. The thing about that whole wedding though (as someone else mentioned) is that that arrest was completely not necessary at that time. Being locked up in a jail cell plus being handcuffed is completely unreasonable; even with Victor pulling the strings.

    On the other stage, Chance meeting his “demise” will hopefully torpedo that story off the map quickly. I do hope that Nina is reunited with Chance sooner than later and also with “Ronan” when she finds out the whole truth. Her attitude especially (along with the others) toward Cricket is entirely appropriate and forgiveness should be a hard fought battle.

    … and BillyMillerFan; you won’t win your argument because apparently the opinion of some does not matter to a few others around these days. All opinions need to be expressed and valued. The responses should be constructive.

    kc, I wouldn’t say that Amelia was a better actress when she was 22. I was a fan of Loving. The thing is she was right for the part then; Steffi was not a very challenging role to play.

    What many fans are reacting to now is the fact that she has not evolved as an actress in fifteen years. She’s playing Victoria, a mature, complex, four-times-married woman, as though she were 22 years old or less. And, I have to add, there are some 22 year-old actresses who might even do a better job.

    I enjoyed the wedding and having a lot of the cast present. —-But what I really noticed from watching YR was hOW freaking AMAZING LIZ (Chloe) is at crying. I wasn’t a big Chance and Chloe fan but she blew me out of the water with her scenes with Billy. I was watching the Canada episode and watching Liz and Eden Riegel together was insane my heart was tugging for Chloe.

    Liz and Rebecca (Greenlee, AMC) get the awards for the best tears last week. Those actress made their emotions look so raw and from a real place!

    Hell, that scene almost made ME wanna cry!!!

    Maybe she’ll redeem herself next week????? I sure as heck hope so.

    I thought the wedding was quirky and sweet and even the way it ended was cute. I am not sure of the fall out for the arrest. I think this will bite Victor back hard.
    Thanks yrsoapboy85 for the great clips of Victoria and Victor. One forgets what a powerhouse Heather Tom is. Her Victoria was her father’s daughter. I think Amelia’s version is more her mother’s. Which would have been fine, if she had always been written that way. But when you compare the two, she pales in comparison to the original. Maybe they could switch characters. The B&B character doesn’t really need such a powerful actress to play the role.

    I love Amelia and Billy playing this role. I loved the old Vicky but this one is more fun,Heather was too stiff to business to have pulled this off as a woman being wond up tight then loosen up so much that she actually appeared to have lost her mind sometimes, but thats what true love do for a person. It is also the young handsome man effect. She truely did her job well and so did he, it was worth waiting for.

    I love Amelia and I am not afraid to say. I knew H.Tom when she had this role and while some think that she was so perfect for this role, she didn’t have any other shoes to fill. Taking on a name behind another actress is pretty hard to fill.I remember Peter B. (Jack) behind Terry Lester and there were no kind words. The new Heather is known for her acting ability but has been under so much pressure from trying to become Vail she is still finding her way. When Vail was there no one ever admit that they liked her. I wish that everyone would be less criticle of the actors, because this is their lively hood. these people have kids and families just as we do.Just as we stand before God in judgement for treating our neighbor wrong, we also will look at the same God for pushing these people to hard we deal with it on our jobs everyday. We don’t have say we love them when we don’t but don’t have to refer to them as buzzards and aliens either.

    [quote=Carol2]This story really isn’t about Victoria at all. It’s about getting Billy into conflict with the Newmans, and about Victor doing horrible things which will be forgiven in a few months or less.

    The idea of a woman who is over 40, has been married five times, and has often been put down by patriarchy suddenly deciding she needs to go back to the days when a man ran a woman’s life — if that’s supposed to be romantic, it says a hell of a lot about the people running Y&R.[/quote]

    Totally wrong Amelia is 37 Billy is 32. She is married for the 4th time and the story line is also about her who has submit her life to her fathers way and now she is finally living and loving it. Billy the biggest screw up on the planet, life maybe on the line if he don’t change. Victor Newman over possessive father, and the things he would do to get his way and his hatred for the Abbotts. the story will probably turn and Victor will be right, its been done before with David Chow.
