Love That Grin She Does At The End. Dont Mess It Up MAB Log in to Reply mango May 16, 2011 She looks great Log in to Reply Coffee_Junkie May 16, 2011 All she represents to me is that she’s going to be taking time away from my favorites. I don’t give a flying *uck about Genie Francis. Log in to Reply bishbay May 16, 2011 Uh sorry but were they trying to make that funny? I know that her character’s supposed to be a tough b*tch and all but that was just instant camp. Log in to Reply Smitty May 16, 2011 LE SIGH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Log in to Reply Mione134 May 16, 2011 If only we could of had her. Good for her sticking to her guns and giving Phelps and Guza the good ole bird. She refuses to be written the way she has. And its sad. GH will never be the GH of old. Its now MOB City. All about Sonny, Jason and his minions. GH will probably get canceled before we can get our Spencer clan back together again. And that saddens me deeply. Log in to Reply JAQ May 16, 2011 How do you really feel cookie?? Not a fan of GF however I wish her the best. She landed in a great show. Screw GH! >) Log in to Reply Jamey Giddens May 16, 2011 Somewhere Melody Scott just threw a puppy into a wall. Log in to Reply Smitty May 16, 2011 DON’T GET ME STARTED JAMEY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! UGH Log in to Reply GHvetfan May 16, 2011 I love her!! What is the deal with the hands on the hips? Very unLaura like. I can deal. Log in to Reply RoseNylund May 16, 2011 Siigh…I better get used to Nikki just being brought out to babysit her grandkids and to jump whenever Victoria or Nick has a crisis… And Jill? Pfft… Log in to Reply Restless Vixen May 16, 2011 I’m with Coffee_Junkie. I’ve never been a GH fan, so who gives a fugg about Genie Francis? I’m sorry, but why should I be happy that MTS, TEB and especially JW will likely have to step aside for GF’s character? I truly feel for how she was treated at ABC, but my loyalty is to Y&R vets as a fan for over 20 years. Log in to Reply yojoromo4469 May 16, 2011 Yes, just what Y and R needs, another actor. If we are lucky we will see some of the regulars about once a month and have to ask, who are they? This whole Cane/Colin fiasco has been a washout and now more of it. They need to give us a break here and hire a decent writer and get of rid of some of the hacks they have as actors. Log in to Reply sassysdreams May 16, 2011 I’ve never watched more than a few minutes of Y&R before (I didn’t like what I saw) but for Genie I will check it out again and see if I can stand it. I love Genie Francis but I don’t know if she will be enough to make me like the show. We shall see. Log in to Reply giogio May 16, 2011 Sassysdreams – I started watching the minute they cancelled oltl and amc.It was wierd at first, but it is good and i will continue to watch. Tristin Rogers from GH is in it and I think she will be playing with him. I know you watch the abc soaps, as Ive seen you on their boards. Did you see the Chew commercial yet?? I watched the finale of desp housewives last night and there it was. I almost had to resuscitate hubby.

We shall see.[/quote] For the first few days you will see a lot of Genie Francis and then she will be on every other week or so and you should not judge this once wonderful show by the way it now being so poorly written with way too many worthless characters to go along with the poorly written storylines of the now awful MAB> Log in to Reply giogio May 16, 2011 Yojoromo – I noticed that. Ive been watching for a month now and say Tristin Rogers once. A few other characters once. It seems like a very big cast–on the abc soaps we basically see all the major characters all the time. Seems like this show has weeks of some, than they switch to others. Oh Boy!!! I hope I can continue to watch this. Log in to Reply keanna May 16, 2011 She looks great, I might actually watch Y&R!!! Log in to Reply alstonboy4315 May 16, 2011 Y&R doesn’t need any other characters, but I am not going to blame Genie for Maria’s desire to focus on characters that could easily be written off (we all can name at least SIX of those!) I am looking forward to her stint on the show. She’s certainly not to blame for Melody Thomas Scott, Jess Walton or anyone else getting limited airtime. After all, I don’t see her as the type of actor who pulls disgusting power trips like Daniel “Woe Is Me” Goddard and Michelle “You Have An Enemy Here” Stafford. Maria probably sought her out for this role and already knew how much story she wanted to devote to her character in the first place. I will try to enjoy her stint as much as possible before I cast judgment on her new character or storyline. Log in to Reply md1347 May 16, 2011 Well, all these women you list can be involved, certainly Jess will certainly get more airtime due to Genie being on. Frankly, Genie needs to go head to head with Victor and Tucker. The other women on the show have become to tame over the years. Log in to Reply pumpkin May 16, 2011 I am definitely not a GH fan. I would like to see Genie Francis play a baddie. Even in her movies she is always the good guy. I am glad the actress is smart enough not to go back to gh. GH is terrible. Women are demeaned every day on that show. Log in to Reply Coffee_Junkie May 16, 2011 She seems very butch in this promo. I can’t imagine who they can pair her with. Phyllis maybe? Log in to Reply alstonboy4315 May 16, 2011 Coffee_Junkie– You are a naughty girl/guy……. But I like the way you think sometimes!! Priceless. Log in to Reply Coffee_Junkie May 16, 2011 I didn’t think she seemed all that butch till I viewed it a second time. Can’t see her with Colin at all. She’d snap him in two. Log in to Reply Dyllan May 16, 2011 LMAO@ Coffee_Junkie! Uggh….not excited about this newbie coming over to Y&R. Don’t care if she was a big deal on GH. The cast is already full and we know what this will mean for Nikki. And look what Y&R did with Maura West! Log in to Reply Miry May 16, 2011 Well, in all actuality, those actresses that ya’ll named haven’t been getting much play anyway, so we can’t really “blame” the fact that they will *continue* to not get much play b/c of GF. If anything, I personally am hoping that this will be like when Kim Zimmer came to OLTL as Echo and gave the vets there a much needed jab in the storyline-arm and they have ALL been on FIYA since her return. We barely saw Clint or Charlie & Viki had been nothing more than a talk-to for her kids, but since Echo, they have all had at least the b story (if not the A some days). Here’s hoping GF’s character will be that for Jill & the Winters clan (& Tucker/Ashley since Stephen N & GF had such fantastic chemistry on GH). Log in to Reply sassysdreams May 17, 2011 giogio – I know Tristan Rogers is on Y&R now which is why I tried to watch it a few times. But it didn’t do anything for me. However, I will give it another try when Genie is on. I did watch Housewives last night but I didn’t see the commercial. I was flipping back and forth between Housewives and Celebrity Apprentice so I didn’t catch any commercials. I’m glad I didn’t see it as I have no plans to watch it!!! yojoromo4469 – Thanks. I’ll keep that in mind. Log in to Reply jlafferty23 May 17, 2011 LOL. That was a horrible promo. I’m just gonna be honest and blunt. I don’t think Genie Francis is capable of playing a “Badass”. And MAB is going to use her as much as she uses Tristan and Stephen. Log in to Reply Coffee_Junkie May 17, 2011 I love Tristan Rogers and his chemistry with Jill. I just worry that GF’s arrival on the scene is going to blow all that to hell. I’d love to see Jill NOT dump Colin once she discovers he’s Cane’s father. Log in to Reply Chels725 May 17, 2011 She’s looking pretty hot. I’ll take whatever bit of Genie Francis I can get. Log in to Reply liason4real May 17, 2011 Miry,,,You are right on target with KZ and her stint on OLTL. I was afraid that KZ would eat the show which would mean very little screen time for the vets that I love. I rarely watch Y&R, but will check it out now that GF has joined TR. Log in to Reply Dyllan May 17, 2011 LMAO@ comparing OLTL’s bringing on KZ and Y&R’s bringing on GF. I think it is safe to say that if you made that comparison, you’ve never watched Y&R under MAB! MAB brings on tons of big soap stars and gives them crappy storylines. She’s not creative enough to wisely use GF with the vets. Log in to Reply stephanieleo May 17, 2011 I familiar with Young and the Restless but I don’t watch it anymore. I am Days of our lives fan.But I check her out wend she premiere next Friday.And then comment on her new character Happy Genie is working in daytime again but is she under contract or is it a short term role anybody no. Log in to Reply Soap_Stud May 17, 2011 Do you want to know why I am going to become a regular viewer of Y&R? It’s because the folks behaind the scenes of the #1 daytime drama WANT the show to be on their air and believe in the genre. The PR being done about Genie Francis joining the soap is what all the soaps should be doing. I mean, on the cover of the most recent tv guide is Oprah. If you turn the page, there is Genie Francis. That’s good PR. Fans of Y&R may not always agree witht he stories being told on the soap, but it is clear to me that the producers and writers want Y&R to continue for many years to come. Log in to Reply Myst Stied May 17, 2011 Well, I started watching Y&R for Tristan Rogers (love,love,love him and will followed him to any soap opera even one that I never watch a day in my life like(Y&R) I really don’t care what’s happening on the show just as long as I get to see TR as Colin. I’ve been begging ABC to bring back TR as Robert Scorpio but it all fell on deaf ears. Even when there were storylines just waiting for him to come in. The storyline with Ethan/Luke and Holly screamed bringing back Robert Scorpio and Laura Spencer but noooo ABC chose to crapped on history instead by making Ethan’s Luke’s son what a load of crap and a fine way to screw up history b/c it made no sense at all.. It really pissed this longtime viewer off so much that I stopped watching it. So I am happy as a lark that Y&R not only picked up Tristan but Genie as well. Kudos to the Y&R casting dept on two fantastic casting coups b/c Tristan Rogers And Genie Francis are two of GH most popular golden era vets and fan favorites of the long times GH fans. I’m sure Y&R will definitely picked up some more eyeballs for sure by adding Genie. I started watching instantly when I found out that Tristan was on the show. But what I loved the most is that Tristan and Genie’s characters are exes and have kids together with a son name Ethan..Fantastic!! I can’t wait to see the dynamic TR/GF bring to the screen.. Poetic justice is sweet. Log in to Reply tedew May 18, 2011 So … I guess some of you guys were right all along. Is “The Mother of all reveals” going to be proof positive that faux Cane must be the “evil” twin and is league with his Father to add to their brood back in OZ? Who was that weird woman who met up with Lily in the grave yard … could she be the “dead” sister? Why does everyone always want kids who don’t belong to them anyway? Why does Colin see the need to plant those two little twins in his pouch and go hopping back off to OZ? The only good thing I can see from all of this is that Neil may just have to go into hyperdrive to save his darling daughter. Log in to Reply Cyberologist May 18, 2011 I’m just glad she didn’t go back to the GH where they didn’t appreciate her and dress her homely. I’ll take my chances with how she’ll be written..It can’t be any worse than the crap they are shoveling on GH. They screwed her over. Not to mention the hatchet jobs they do on their vets returning. As an “actress” hopefully she can break her stereotype …sight unseen…however I’ll wait until she plays out..according to her she’s excited about her character and won’t be playing “a victim” and that’s good enough for me. Jess on FaceBk has already commented as much as she can saying something good is coming up and hold on…I think I’ll take her word for it. As for the politics of Y/R that was playing out preGenie so whatever. PS….I like her boots…Genie looks good.

What a wasted story line this has been and it only continues to get worse. Log in to Reply redandblue636 June 2, 2011 I’m glad GF join Y&R. give her a chance for thse that dont know her well.
