    Jill Farren Philips must have given orders to Joshua Griffiths to force Dylan (Stevie Burton) down our throats. Why else pull a ‘MAB’ and have Dylan and Chelsea have sex on Day 4 of knowing each other.

    That Victor/Nikki scene wasn’t as bad as Luke made it o_O it was meant to be funny, and it WAS funny to me.

    If we want to talk about racism, lets talk about some other soaps that show the black characters twice a month -_-

    Or when Y&R’s black characters were in one box…screwing each other and never being integrated into the cast. OR we can talk about DAYS and GH that have a combined cast of AA characters of maybe 3 or 4.

    If we want to talk “politically correct”, it would be politically correct to say that Y&R is the most diverse soap on the air. I’m black and I wasn’t offended in the least. It’s okay to have Maya on B&B looking like she just took bath while rewiring her bathroom…and that’s fine. It’s okay to have no story for the black character on DAYS, and it’s okay for GH to have Epiphany and Sean as background art, while TJ is chasing around nasally Molly, who has the hots for someone else.

    But have a comedic scene in an episode that featured the FULLY INTEGRATED black characters in a frontburner story, and we have a problem. Sheryl Underwood speaks her mind, and obviously she didn’t find it to be “racist” either. It was meant to be funny…and the point of the scene, to ME, wasn’t that a black woman had a tambourine and started singing. What stuck out to me was that we saw the Newmans in a light, fun, comedic scene…something we haven’t seen in DECADES, if ever.

    @Jamey Giddens: Steve Burton is a sleeper. For a guy who is getting a lot of screentime since he first arrived in Genoa City, he is not wooing me with his acting. James Scott does better than he does when it comes to showing some emotion and making you want to stand up and pay attention. James makes you want to watch. Steve is just there. He believes he is rocking and socking things on Y&R, but it’s Jason Morgan with one neuron now working in the brain.

    Thus, Y&R is good but he has had several scenes already that should have made me care about him. I don’t care. Even the new castings of the actors who play Mason and Tyler come across more interesting than him on screen. Mark Pinter too shows you how to like a character on screen.

    These Steve Burton fans need to know that not every actor can do anything. And he is one of them who can’t.

    I didn’t find it racist in any way w\Victor & Nikki wedding, just don’t understand the motive behind it to say it was racist but that’s streching it abit to maybe get a boards fired up on purpose? Sheryl Underwood is denying it as racist on social media…. :~

    I think Y &R is the better of the soaps right now but wish certain stories weren’t so predictable. The minute Dylan and Chelsea ran into each other it was obvious she would make him the baby’s daddy. They hardly know each other and are jumping in the sack? Can’t any soap build a relationship first ? It will be interesting to see how Adam reacts when he finds out Chelsea is pregnant and involved with Dylan, who, probably will also get involved with Sharon. Adam will go nuts! At least that will add a little sizzle to the Dylan character. I don’t see much difference in Steve Burton’s acting from when he was on GH. But at least he smiles more and jokes a bit, better then always seeing him with that stone-cold look as Jason.
    I really like Jack and Phyliss. They have a mature relationship and I like how he’s giving her space and isn’t rushing things. Also like Victor and Nicki ,how Victor is being so gallant and romantic. But the wedding is very obvious again, on who will get shot and who will be killed.

    @Jamie! Tracy Bregman told me to tell you that she is still only 49! Yes that is pretty old to have a baby but since Rachel Cory, Ada Mcgowen and Reva Shayne were both much older than that when they had their babies and lord god Marlena Evans never had a baby till she was in her 40s then popped out 4 of em and got pregnant in her 60s, it is not impossible in soaps….

    … and noway I am going to complain one more time about the way that Jill has been treated. They never had her visit Billy once, never visit Johnny Jr once, or even talk about him. Katherine was always important to Jill, for and against, and especially during the years everyone thought they were Mother and Daughter, BUT… never more important that Johnny or Billy would have been.

    JFP is starting to ruin this Show.

    I think you are going to see more story for Billy and Victoria. Right now there is a lot going on with Steve Burton coming to the show and all…

    WIth all the talk of dirty kitties, all I could think about was Big Bang Theory and how I am not going to be able to listen to Sheldon’s song the same way again:

    soft kitty, warm kitty
    little ball of fur
    lazy kitty, dirty kitty
    purr, purr, purr

    Billy first of all being called ‘Billy Boy’ is a disgrace.

    I would have the whole Show revolve around Billy, Adam, and Cane. The Big 3. The most proven draws for The Show in the last 5-6 years. I could do a much better job that JoshG ever could. Seeing that interview of him made me disrespect him even more. Very timid fellow.

    Having Dylan ‘bed down’ Chelsea 4 days after his Dad died is totally sickening and disgusting. And Chelsea not even caring one iota about her unborn child. A new low for Y&R. In a way, it’s beyond something even MAB and Hogan would have done. Just another example of how these FriendsOfJill are being crammed down our throats until we gag.

    Why we haven’t seen Shilly is way beyond my realm of comprehension. It would be a ratings winner, they would be the Daytime Couple of the Decade — Sharon and Billy. It would be ‘real’, too, seeing Adam go to war with Billy over Sharon. Instead of this contrived ‘stuff’ that we are going to see – Adam v Dylan, fighting over/with Chelsea.

    I agree with a lot of what Jamey had to say about gh.

    I also like the idea of megan mccain. My issue with EH isnt that she is too conservative or not conservative enough, its just that she isnt smart enough to go toe to toe with barbara especially when its four to one. MM will give the libs on the panel a run for the money because she isnt a lightweight.

    Im not wild about the idea that amc and oltl might jump five years. I dont know how that works with starr todd and john. Starr is definitely in her early twenties not her mid to late 20s so how does that work – she is 22 on gh and 27 on oltl playing the SAME character. If we see john or todd with natalie or blair five years from now how can i get invested in mcbam or tarly in the present when the end result is that they must at some point fall apart. And lmao that emma is the ONLY child immune from time. If all the others aged how is she still little. If jr is mid 30s and dixie is mid 40s I guess someone should have arrested adam chandelor for being a pedophile. JUST SAYIN.

    He sure is. Great personality, good fitness routine, charismatic — a big plus for the Show. Instead we have Steve B, the blonde air-hog taking up screen time.
