Log in to Reply goodandplenty July 15, 2011 I hope this means Genie is doing this in ADDITION to Y&R. I love her and I love Genevieve! She brought me back to the soap. Log in to Reply appleridge July 15, 2011 I believe its in addition Lots of actors do daytime & web soaps at the same time Log in to Reply AlistairCrane July 15, 2011 ^^ But hopefully the web soap takes up ALL her time so she’s unable to do Y&R anymore and has to quit!! Log in to Reply OldGHFan July 15, 2011 I can’t wait to see Genie and Denise together again. Log in to Reply Cyberologist July 15, 2011 Great that Genie is getting work it will be fantastic to see Denise/Genie together too bad its not on GH but I’ll take what I can get.

NOT ONLY IS SHE NOT PRETTY, SHE IS A TERRIBLE ACTOR. Log in to Reply caogra July 16, 2011 Boy, some of you are mean! I don’t expect to like every character or actor on my shows. After the all, the shows are writing for just me. But to attack Genie’s looks is uncalled for. I for one am happy for her. Log in to Reply AlistairCrane July 16, 2011 Genie does not fit on Y&R. The Genevieve character is awful. And Y&R fans don’t want GH rejects hogging airtime on our show. Log in to Reply ILoveGenie July 16, 2011 Great news, love that Genie is going to be on Pretty the Series. How fantastic it will be to see Genie with Denise again. I’ve never watched the web series before, but sure will now! I became a fan of Y&R because of Genie. Just wish she was on that show more. And of course, I wish GH would beg her to come back to her signature role of Laura Spencer. Oh, how I miss Laura. I don’t know how Genie does it, but she’s more beautiful than ever! Log in to Reply 1964nickel July 16, 2011 Well, I personally think she looks fantastic! And can’t wait to see her and Denise together again. Will admit that Laura will always be my favorite of her characters. But she brought me back to Y&R. Genevieve isn’t like any other character she’s played before which is, understandably, difficult for some to accept. Some may never accept it. But then Genie’s always had her naysayers. She has enough longtime fans that negative statements don’t bother me as a rule. In fact, I’ve often wondered if longtime Y&R fans didn’t have a problem with all the old GH actors coming to the show. But it won’t just be GH actors anymore. Y&R will be the last soap standing, which means the cream of the crop from ALL the shows will be invading before you know it. Oh, and one last thing – I have never once been disappointed by Genie. That continues today. I don’t see it ever changing. Log in to Reply AlistairCrane July 17, 2011 Genie Francis is a GREAT actress—-when she’s playing Laura Spencer! It’s just so very WRONG that she’s on Y&R in this stupid role delivering an over-the-top performance (and not in a good way) when she should be on GH playing her signature role.
