Well that sucks for Y&R fans but great news for GH fans. This also reunites Rylan with Genie Francis who played Genevieve on Y&R.

I have to admit it wasn't till Carmine came on board that I like Rylan's Abby. I found the character and her naked heiress crap too much to handle. I hope she has a good run at GH. The problems I had with Abby were never the fault of the actress.

On another note I agree its a shame were being saddled with that deadweight character Adrianna over the likes of Rylan's Abby. I don't fell like the writers know exactly what to do with the character. I don't buy for a moment that a wealthy to do broad like Katherine would hire someone she shared 2 scenes with during a snow storm to be her personal assistant. Another case of a new character being forced on the audience. Cut your losses JG and JFP. No one will care. Promise you!!

This is not meant to be a diss to MR, her acting is very similar to Kristen Storms portrayal of Maxie. This recast might have worked when Maxie and Lulu were two teen girls interning at Crimson. The dialogue would be funny, and 'OMG' and 'Like' for days, but Lulu has changed as a character. Lulu has matured considerably. Unless Frank and Ron want two Maxies on the show, and they want to return to that 'Two Wacky Teen Girls' type relationship.

I am usually quiet on these boards, but this really has me upended for some reason, lol!

I was really nervous that Cartini would pick someone dreadful like Yvonne Zimaless or Farah Fathless! Honestly, I think Jennifer Landon would have been the best actress for this role, but since she doesn't seem to have chemistry with that many male actors on soaps, I kinda knew that casting her might be problematic. I ain't mad about this!

Too bad Phelps and company over at Y&R didn't realize what a good thing they had before it was gone. They are too busy obsessing over that idiotic Adrianna chick and the annoying actress who plays her to focus on the REAL talent they have on the sidelines!! Their loss........

As usual ALSTOBOY, you are right on.

I think this is great news! Shame on Y&R for degrading Marcy Rylan to recurring status. MR said she has babies to feed! Let's all remember that MR is an actress and we've seen her do her thing as Lizzie and Abby. I would highly suspect Frank will tone her down so she doesn't clash with KS acting style - case in point: Ian B. and Genie F. they both were hot messes on DAYS and Y&R and have returned to GH with a much more grounded acting portrayal.

Can we actually wait to see her in the role for at least one scene before judging a performance that she hasn't given yet?

ALSTONBOY, You will be thrilled to know that Adrianna has been let go from Y and R, as I very excited about her exit.
