10 Babies Who Didn't Know Where They Were in 2012



No. 5: Yvonne Zima, The Young and the Restless

With Maria Arena Bell vanquished from The Young and the Restless it is our sincerest wish that Daisy Carter and her portrayer Yvonne Zima never darken a Genoa City doorway again. We’ll leave it at that.

^^Happy New Year, david46208. I am not sure why anyone on DC would have qualified Julia Pace Mitchell as "Black Royalty" but perhaps, she was dubbed "Black Royalty" before she was viewed acting as Sophia (LOL.) JPM is the daughter of 70's star, Judy Pace. Judy Pace starred in "Cotton Comes To Harlem" and I believe that she was the first ever African-American woman featured as a Playboy centerfold.

You left one of the worst actors of the year...Patrick Muldoon (Austin, DAYS). He can't act his way out of paper bag!! Every scene he was is was sooo painful to watch.

You have really missed an obvious one here - Christel Khalil.That girl has no energy in her acting and it seems like it's an effort for her at times to be there.God only knows what they have planned for her with the new Tyler character......yawn,yawn,yawn!!! She's a pretty face and really needs to work harder.She's lucky she still has her job!

I disagree re Kelly Sullivan and I think she's doing a very good job.The storyline though needs to come to a conclusion.

Both of Julia Pace Mitchell's parents were top stars in the seventies. If the Fondas, the Coppolas, and other Hollywood progeny are considered Hollywood royalty, then this girl, whatever her acting talents, can certainly be called that.

The term is really just arbitrary and meaningless anyway.

^^Happy New Year, SoapArmageddon. I had to go look up who Julia Pace Mitchell's father was and he was the actor Don Mitchell. He starred in Ironside and Scream!Blacula!Scream! Both Don Mitchell and Judy Pace were quite popular Black actors in the 1960s and 1970s. They were groundbreakers.

Happy New Year, soapbaby!

I am looking forward to comments from you and my other favorites in 2013. We don't all share the same opinions but we all love this genre. May 2013 give us a lot of good and juicy stuff to talk about! Smile

I agree with you. I think Kelly Sullivan is doing very well in the role. I actually don't mind the storyline either. It has been played out for laughs which is needed. And I actually will be surprised if she doesn't get an emmy nod for that scene in which she recounted her rape by Joe Jr. It left me with chills!

Wow. The episode today with Jack and the dead hooker is fantastic. I am starting to like this Josh G guy a little bit more every day. Adam, you are the go to guy in town.

Sorry, I have to call BS on Kelly Sullivan as Kate/Connie. I think that given the inane material, she is rocking it. All that I require is that an actor commit, and Kelly Sullivan commits to the ridiculous role of Connie.

I really want her to return to the 'Devil Wears Prada' archetype she was introduced as. I want her to reclaim her life as KATE and wreak havoc on fashion interns again.

Also, I wish Ron or Frank would get on wardrobe to make her dress the part of a fashion maven. Once she is integrated again.

Great list. I almost totally agree. Especially Alyshia Ochse, Linsey godfrey, Lindsey Morgan, Kelly Sullivan, Julia Pace Mitchell - horrible, horrible, horrible.

I do think that many actors were given horrible characters and/ or writing. Somehow I think, Texas Battle in another show, in another kind of role, could have some chops.

With Yvonne Zima, it is clear that her acting chops aren't very sizeable. However I must admit I enjoyed Daisy's second-to-last stint when she was set on torturing Phyllis and she and ricky were trying to one-up each other on creepiness. It's like someone here said earlier, YZ works best as the one-note villainess.

The one I really disagree with is Jessica Heap. She has a natural, earthy, realistic way about her, and yet she fits all the soap criteria too. I really liked her, she was definitely the best out of the three Edens, and I kept hoping and waiting for her to be given the proper material to flesh out the character. I kept waiting for them to amplify her romance with Kyle, with them possibly getting married or getting pregnant, and so we would have had a new generation in Kyle & Eden Abbott. However, as we now know, that never happened, and now she is out of Y&R. I really hope her all the best in her future endeavours, and hope she makes it in primetime.

@angrierblackerman, I so agree about Kate. What kills me about Kelly Sullivan in the role is that the makeup department cannot cover her wrist tattoo - that is so NOT a Kate Howard thing to have.
