Why? And why do we need his daughter? Is she going to be one of Devon’s musical acts? Guess I’ll be doing a lot more flipping to Judge Mathis during those scenes. Log in to Reply Coffee_Junkie September 13, 2011 So we’re losing Tristan Rogers so TPTB can bring on an Italian chick with huge tits? No wonder this show is going down the tubes. Log in to Reply Jon September 13, 2011 Sounds like a GH Anthony/Claudia Zacchara redo. But Diana DeGarmo ain’t no Sarah Brown! Log in to Reply jetty September 13, 2011 Maria’s still trying to ape other TV shows and movies. Want to bet this Angelina character is going be very “Jersey Shore”? Log in to Reply Smitty September 13, 2011 I HATE THIS SHOW!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! UGH Log in to Reply tedew September 13, 2011 Angie Lucy … at least you’re flipping over to Judge Mathis and not to that annoying battle axe shrike harpy of a Judge Judy! Log in to Reply angrierblackerman September 13, 2011 I like Diana Degarmo, but is she an actor? How much do you wanna make a bet, she will come on as a singer? Like Flash(Sarah) from OLTL, lol! And MAB is about to build what Garin Wolf over at GH is trying desperately to dismantle…A Mob based Soap opera. Congratulations Y&R…PHAIL! Log in to Reply GHfan-4now September 13, 2011 DeGarmo will play mobster Angelo’s daughter Angelina. ****** It’s officially official. Young and Restless is no longer Young, nor Restless. Log in to Reply tedew September 13, 2011 Exactly why does Genoa City need yet another peripheral character??? There is no reason at all why we need the daughter of another useless peripheral character. Forced retirement and attrition does not work in daytime.

But expect to see some Biggest Loser stars making some guest appearances and a few actors who have not worked since the cigarette commercials were done by doctors. Log in to Reply Pure_Diva September 14, 2011 Diana DeGarmo? Ugh. I hated her on American Idol. I sure hope they’ve found a way to make her voice less annoying.

LMAO Log in to Reply alstonboy4315 September 14, 2011 Jamey Giddens– Kindly bite your tongue, sir……..LOL!!! P.S- I heard Fantasia has been hired as a Lily recast. Log in to Reply marknsprmo September 14, 2011 Jamie if Ruben gets to sing I would be all for it! The velvet teddy bear might not be stud of the century but he is a warm fuzzy! However if Dru comes back, they would have to have a stunt double for a love scene! Poor Dru would get lost in there somewhere lol. Hey why stop there. Fantasia as Dru Clay Aiken as Chance. Then he can finally come out. Mama Bowersox as Mac Adam Lambert as the new Daniel R. Jennifer Hudson is perfect for Sophia Carrie Underwood as Heather Kelly Clarkson as Vicky Newman Now this is a Y&R I could get behind. We could even bring back the old Bill Bell penchant for spontaneously breaking out into song. Sort of Y&R the Musical!

THEY WANT YOUNG WOMAN WITH BIG boobS AND YOUNG PARTS TO POSE ON DESK TOPS FOR OLD MEN LIKE JACK, VICTOR AND TUCKER TO GET THEIR ROCKS OFF ON. So welcome young meat, Avery, Idol woman, Daisy, Eden, & Hunter. Goodbye to our wonderful Y&R characters and most talented actors Jill, Nikki, Lauren or Gloria,the writers can’t write for you, but will allow you to say hi once in awhile. Plenty of story the old men like Tucker, Victor and Jack, they are shoved down our throats EVERYDAY.

Log in to Reply syworld82 September 15, 2011 I personally believe they are trying to return to their roots ” The Young and The Restless” This is a show about balancing Career experienced peoples with problems and issues and The Younger Generation. However, in recent years, it has become less blended and more all about the veteran characters contrary to what Guza was doing on GH. Diana Degarmo’s addition is definitely a step in bringing balance and attention to the reality tv model. I personally am looking forward to her as Angelina, she is a very capable actress. Her penny pingleton in hairspray goes unmatched. Log in to Reply Leave a Reply Cancel Reply You must be logged in to post a comment.
