Summer Newman Delves Into Cyberbullying on The Young and The Restless



The Young and the Restless’ Summer Newman (Hunter Haley King) is definitely starting to become her mother Phyllis' (Michelle Stafford) child. The teen schemer is still blazing mad about the affair her mother carried on with FBI Agent Ronan Malloy. (Jeff Branson) She decides it's time he gets some payback by way of his mentee, Jamie (Daniel Polo).
 
TV Guide Magazine’s Michael Logan spoke with head writer Josh Griffith and got the skinny on Summer's quest take down Ronan.

Summer is in such a screwed-up state over the divorce of her parents that she misguidedly decides to hurt Ronan by hurting this kid he cares so much about," says the soap's Emmy-winning head writer Josh Griffith. "She uses her phony online persona called 'Brittni' to form a relationship with Jamie and draw information out of him — deeply personal and hurtful stuff about his past troubles with the law — and then she blasts it out to everyone on FacePlace. She'll also be using texting and instant messaging to disparage him further.

Looks like Nick (Joshua Morrow) and Red's little angel is going to be a regular peach. To find out what Summer's antics mean for Fen (Max Ehrich), Michael (Christian LeBlanc) and Lauren, (Tracey Bregman) click here!

harlee490 ... you are right that Y&R is getting much more balanced and full of promise to come.

However I don' think that the so called haters really do hate the show. They are just concerned that what was bad in the past is still present in some cases and will again be on the forefront. I guess I read the posts differently because I don't see the hate you see; most seem quite constructive and on the mark.
So I don't think it's fair for the criticism and assumptions leveled about people's lives because they don't have the same opinions as others.

Yes, Harlee490, she did play Colleen...until it was rumored she was let go because she was overweight. Hence the irony of Y&R taking on bullying.

Lyndsey Fonseca, was the all time best ever, "COLLEEN"

I don't know if you have ever seen, "NIKITA" and it is on Friday nights on CW channel and she is a regular on there. She has turned into a very attractive young lady.

Hmmm, Summer cyberbulling all together bulling and to tedew. WOW! This show goes in a world wind each day but some points are a good topic the cyberbulling is a very good topic even if it has been on another show or not. It is real happens all the time. As for tedew if my child was doing the *Bullings* to others athletics or not well this day and age you have to pay for the sports. least did when I was a child. Put them in there place. You are the parent, as my momma told me I brought you into this world and I surely can take you out. Bulling affects in more ways then you can imagine. To the point some kill them selves has happened recently, yet the bullies say the person deserved it. As for Summer love it how they grow up so fast on this show lol. Oh and as for the kids topic come on now. Not all Children are like that, so dont assume. I do though wish they would stick with one Summer.
