Log in to Reply soapbaby April 23, 2012 I watched today’s episode and was left completely unaffected. I love Renee Jones but this story is lame. I didn’t appreciate Faux-Celeste and Mocha-Jay Leno in those scenes. Log in to Reply jphelps April 23, 2012 [quote=soapbaby]I watched today’s episode and was left completely unaffected.

But the show itself feels very bland and anemic. And I love Renee Jones and Lexie but I kind of agree. I think not having Real Celeste is truly a missing piece. But I’m hoping things get better and James Reynolds a very under appreciated actor on this show gets some good material out of it. Log in to Reply soapy opie April 23, 2012 Yes, I will miss Rene, but it was HER decision to leave. Hopefully, James Reynolds will get some great scenes of grief, mixed with rage at all of Stefano’s past “tricks”, that made Lexi’s life so complicated & put so much pressure on her.

Bad casting move. If you could not have “darrrr’ling” Celeste back then they should done this another way. Log in to Reply soapbaby April 24, 2012 LOL@”Lean On Me”-Celeste! If Valarie Pettiford was available and interested in playing the part (the mother of a woman older then her in real-life!)I think she could have been good. Still, I think Tanya Boyd is surprisingly irreplaceable in the role! Log in to Reply The_Moustache April 24, 2012 bring back one of the 4 actresses that played Lexie before Renee Jones.

Log in to Reply SoapArmageddon April 24, 2012 It’s still not clear to me if killing off the character was Renee’s or the writers’ idea. Either way I hate it. Log in to Reply GHfan-4now April 24, 2012 @david46208 and @soapbaby I concur with you both. As a result of Lean on Me and her recent histrionics, the storyline feels hallow and a bit of a waste. When she shouted no, no, no! yesterday, I shook my head shouting the same. Mr. Clark would have been ashamed, to say the least. lol Log in to Reply Miry April 24, 2012 Never thought I’d type this, lol, but I agree with The_Moustache! They should not kill off this character just b/c the actress no longer wishes to act! She said in her exit interview that the writers asked her if she minded being “killed off” and she said no, as long as it was done right. As a fan of the show & for the fans, she SHOULD have said that they shouldn’t kill off the character, instead have her leave town, so if they wish to bring Lexie back home to Salem they can easily do so without the historonics of a back-from-the-dead storyline. Plus, how many children does Stefano have to lose? I mean, I know he’s got a 100 spare ones, but still! Log in to Reply Leave a Reply Cancel Reply You must be logged in to post a comment.
