HomeTVDays of Our LivesSOAP BYTES: Is Sharon the Grim Reaper on Young and Restless? Are Liam and Hope Really over on Bold and Beautiful? Luke Kerr August 30, 2012 19 Comments Y&R BYTES: Poor, Sharon (Sharon Case). The interview that was supposed to make her look impressive to the business world backfired and now she looks like a fool. The headline labeled her Newman's Grim Reaper!The article went on to say Victor's dog should have been left in charge of the company over Sharon. It's a shame Sharon didn't really kill Victor. Case would excel at playing a Black Widow, and a web of her very own would ensure she didn't lose any of the items her kleptomaniac a** steals from various department stores. Tucker’s (Stephen Nichols) little scheme appeared to be working as everyone who read the story had an adverse reaction. After seeing the interview, Nick (Joshua Morrow) ripped into Sharon. He basically said she was acting like a spoiled baby. Before the interview’s publication, Katherine (Jeanne Cooper) arrived at the Newman ranch and warned Sharon about her actions. She also took Sharon to task about not looking for Victor (Eric Braeden). Katherine later confronted her son Tucker at Gloworm about his motives. Cane (Daniel Goddard) wanted to know where Genevieve (Genie Francis) had been, and if her trip had anything to do with his sister. Of course Genny couldn't tell her son she was off doing Tucker's dirty work. 19 Responses pferrando August 31, 2012 Fast forwarding a lot these days….

I started out with a heading that appears to be about Young and Restless, so now I am lost. Log in to Reply sillytee August 31, 2012 OK on Y&R, did anyone think the stupidest lines came from Cane when Lily described the girl as taller than her with long dark hair and Cane said , ‘ you’re describing my sister!’. that was just silly. is his sister the only woman taller than Lily with long dark hair???!!!!! bad writing Log in to Reply Angie Lucy August 31, 2012 [quote=sillytee]OK on Y&R, did anyone think the stupidest lines came from Cane when Lily described the girl as taller than her with long dark hair and Cane said , ‘ you’re describing my sister!’. that was just silly. is his sister the only woman taller than Lily with long dark hair???!!!!! bad writing[/quote] This is Y&R after all. Log in to Reply SwanQueen59 August 31, 2012 I see the photo of Sharon on that GC web news site with the “Newman”s Grim Reaper” caption and can’t help thinking it should actually be a picture of MAB and substitute “The Young and the Restless” for “Newman’s”. But that’s me… 0:) Log in to Reply tedew August 31, 2012 yojoromo4469 … I know what you mean. Sometimes these threads are multi-topic so the comments are all over the place. But when they are not and somehow the comments start to get off topic altogether then it can get confusing. But this one did have two topics in the heading. Log in to Reply marybee50 August 31, 2012 Y&R-just really don’t know what to say about this show.I’m still watching but FF thru Victor,and may add Ronan to that. B&B-haven’t watched it in the last 2 days.I just read the recaps.Rick is not Rick anymore.He has become JR from AMC. I really am enjoying Days,I like the way they are setting up the future stories,using the vets and the younger crowd.The stories are flowing better,and not a lot of repetition.I totally like the way Thurs that Adrienne,Sonny’s mom,got involved.Missteps at the start of romances are a soap staple.Go WilSon,but I’m loving Brian also.

Ugh – such awful, awful storytelling since he was a pre-teen when his mother Diane Jenkins was offed just last August 2011… Also, what 22 y-o kid sits down and pours themselves a glass of scotch and drinks with their dad – really, MAB??? So glad you are history – now we just need to get through about 6 more weeks of the drek you have created – where’s that scotch?!?

He’s of age, why can’t he have a drink with dear old dad? It was later in the day, so? Log in to Reply Bartman202 August 31, 2012 A beer, yes – but scotch?? What 22 y o do you know that drinks scotch straight up??? C’mon!!! Log in to Reply pferrando August 31, 2012 My brother….. My family is Irish/Italian. Love our spirits. Not unusual. Log in to Reply tedew September 1, 2012 Bartman202 … I get your consternation here but I don’t have a problem with the driver license nor with the Scotch drinking. The license is appropriate and I know I was drinking Scotch (straight up) at that age. We just have to accept that Kyle is now much older than he used to be. Log in to Reply RebeccaJ September 1, 2012 I LMAO when the author of Sharon’s article said she probably ran out of the room and looked up the big words! Log in to Reply robin316 September 1, 2012 What kills me isn’t the lack of storyline continuity regarding Kyle (soaps have been doing that for years). What kills me is how is “Christian” surviving without his anti-rejection meds. He’d be dead sooner rather than later since he had a heart transplant — Colleen’s (one of the worst storylines EVER!!!). TPTB could at least try to remember what has happened under his/her own regime. Is VN the new Chuck Norris? [A python bit Victor Newman and it died a painful excruciating death 5 days later]. I love Eric Braeden and Victor Newman but this is ridiculous!!! Log in to Reply tedew September 2, 2012 robin316… I keep saying that Victor should remember why he still lives and leave his Abbott vendetta (mainly Jack and Billy) behind. Also, he shouldn’t be able to do anything he’s been doing to his body considering the care and massive medications needed to counter his various major ailments. And … have you ever noticed any major scars when we’ve been forced to see him bare chested? Log in to Reply Cuppa_Coffee September 2, 2012 My husband said that too,”why doesn’t he have the zipper?” Very unrealistic. But we have MAB to thank for that bit of farce. I don’t know that the “heart medication” is the anti-rejection or the regular heart pill. You get a few after heart surgery. “I LMAO when the author of Sharon’s article said she probably ran out of the room and looked up the big words” Thank you for the laugh. I can picture her sliding her finger across the paper and sounding out the big words. Wonder if she’s more like her character than we know.
