Oh well… Log in to Reply sillytee July 22, 2013 yea that fall wouldn’t even break one of her nails.. i would have preferred a cliff a la Drucilla… Log in to Reply hey mon July 22, 2013 I hear ya. Michelle deserves to go over a cliff, or maybe down a skyscraper elevator shaft… Log in to Reply tomkil July 22, 2013 Today’s episode was awful, the writing is just pathetic. I can’t believe the actors can say it with a straight face. Log in to Reply sillytee July 22, 2013 hehehe yes something a little more dramatic..i just hope we dont get a bad body double with her scenes face down.. Log in to Reply sillytee July 22, 2013 or what if Drucilla showed up and pushed both of them down an elevator shaft!!!! Log in to Reply hey mon July 22, 2013 Too true, sillytee. Drucilla shows up and says, ‘Bi+ches! You both were playing with that phone, and I went over the cliff. Now you both are going down the stairs!” Log in to Reply Peterascal July 22, 2013 Sharon’s loopier than when she was married to Victor. Everything is just wrong with this story. Also while Adam is right that Nick isn’t being as hated as Adam was, Nick didn’t spook his pregant stepmother down a staircase or tell another her baby was dead. Log in to Reply bobbyew July 22, 2013 I wish they would have had her get pushed through glass in the Genoa City Hotel ballroom. That would have been amazing cause the stairs was so anti-climatic. Log in to Reply bobbyew July 22, 2013 Lovin Carmine and his attempt to rape Lauren. Hopefully Michael gets out and saves the day. Log in to Reply tmac July 22, 2013 Um, when Billy fired Carmine shouldn’t he have said it was for causing so much trouble for his AUNT Lauren, UNCLE Michael, and COUSIN Fen? The previous writers went to great lengths to make Lauren and Jill sisters, the current writers could at least acknowledge it. Log in to Reply bobbyew July 22, 2013 LMAO LaDivaYR. You are amazing and telling the truth. I know what you saying about Days it is hot in that NBC/Sony Studio. Log in to Reply LaDivaYR July 22, 2013 Yaaaaaaawwwwwwwwwnnnn! That was UNDERWHELMING! I was expecting weave snatching, ninja kicks, ho shoving and lots of blood… Instead we get lame-ass PG-13 dialogue, a few side eyes, and a stunt double wearing a BLACK wig! Really, JFP??? You couldn’t even buy a $2 Elmo doll and pistol-glue it to the head of that tumbling mess? Where’s RuPaul’s girls when you need ‘em!!! Like I said before, La Stafford has been sleepwalking this shit since she jumped off the Titanic. Where was the REAL SyPhyllis, the most-hated BITCH in Genoa City??? The unrepentant homewrecker with the mouth of a trucker and the morals of an alley cat??? I got *nothing* from her in this episode, what a damn shame! Sharon Case, on the other hand, gave me ***EYES*** that will haunt my soapy dreams forever! For a moment I dared to hope she was actually gonna push that teal Morticia down the stairs. Alas, no such luck! Bitch got tripped by those Walmart flip flops she was wearing (cheap ass slut). Lucky me, La Case’s *eyes* told the real story today, and trust me, the internal dialoguing in her head was MAGNIFICENT! I heard you loud and clear, bitch, and I applaud your efforts to breathe life into the inert scripts they’re giving you! In my head, from your head, I revisited the legendary catfights enshrined at the Soap Opera Rabble Rousing Ho Hall of Fame! Alexis vs Krystle (Dynasty), Doreen vs Maya (Generations), Reva vs India (Guiding Light) and many others! Every hair flip from Sharon was a slap on Phyllis’ smug face. Every death stare a death grip around her skinny neck. Every cray blink blink a stomp on her Nick-addicted you-know-what… Now THAT’s how you write a diva like La Stafford out! The rest of the show was a MEH trainwreck from beginning to end. Nikki’s announcement that she’s got MS was so ridiculous my eyes rolled all the way to my ass! Bitch thought she was at AA or something! “Hi my name is Nikki and I have no storyline… except this “MS” that flares up when I play piano every 3 years” “Hi bitch! Wrong meeting!” MTS is a fabulous diva, and those gorgeous tatays and that BLING on her finger were FIERCE, but she’s only *alive* as an actress when she’s playing drunk, slut or both. Drunk Ass Nikki is Must See TV Nikki, Domestic Nikki is Who Gives A Rat’s Ass Nikki! Joshua Morrow still can’t act his way out of a paper bag. It pains me to see him sharing scenes with the likes of Michael Muhney and Peter Bergman. Homie practically disappears from the screen! Just like that boring Jessica Collins and her one-note performances. I already forgot what else happened in today’s episode; that’s how boring this show is right now! Thank God Days of Our Lives is on next!!! Now those writers KNOW how to give us *drama*!!! Crazy Kristen, Studly Brady, Messy Nicole, Yummy Father Eric, etc. etc. DOOL is un-missable! Log in to Reply stoney07 July 22, 2013 I don’t know what in the world everyone expects of this show….I just don’t know. And I give up trying to find out. I honestly don’t even care anymore. Log in to Reply JasamForever July 22, 2013 @stoney07-I agree. I enjoy Y&R. I don’t like how Phyllis is more than likely going to end her tenure, especially if she wants to come back one day, but between not knowing what Carmine’s next move is going to be, the Summer reveal and fallout, Adam at sometime finding about Chelsea, I am hooked on the show.

Log in to Reply stoney07 July 22, 2013 Of course you all like me. Aren’t I just the greatest thing since Barbara Bloom and Lynn Latham???? But I still say Y&R isn’t that bad…actually, it’s pretty damn good to me. But we all have different tastes I suppose. And then some will just jump on the bandwagon…so it all balances. Log in to Reply Peterascal July 22, 2013 I think my biggest problem is the convoluted motivation of Sharon. She’s never treated Summer poorly, so why now? Especially when Nick isn’t with Phyllis. Phyllis isn’t in the picture romantically. Log in to Reply LaDivaYR July 23, 2013 No shade, Stoney, I’m glad you’re enjoying the show. As hard as I try, I just can’t get any satisfaction from Y&R! I keep asking myself: Where’s the *MELODRAMA*? Where’s the *FORBIDDEN* love affairs? Where’s the *MULTI-GENERATIONAL* stories? Where’s the *SIZZLING CHEMISTRY* couples? Where’s my drunken Nikki, my suave Adam, my psycho Sheila/Patty/Isabella, my thirsty Phyllis, my player Billy, my evil Victor??? The show’s gotten so damn boring I REWRITE IN MY HEAD ON A DAILY BASIS! And only then I *live*!!! Cray Cray Sharon is my everything right now because she’s the only one moving the story forward! She’s the heroine, the psycho, the bitch, the thirsty ho, and the grieving mother all wrapped up in Bette Davis eyes, lol. It takes TERRIBLE, TRULY TERRIBLE writing to extinguish Michael Muhney’s incandescent chemistry with everybody on screen. Same can be said for Melissa Claire Egan (Chelsea) who was so riveting as Annie in AMC! Add to the list MTS (reduced to playing bored housewife), Eric Braeden (playing irrelevant Grandpa), Billy Miller (playing purse holder), Elizabeth Hendrickson (playing brainless), Michelle Stafford (playing zombie Phyllis), and many others. Add to that the newbie invasion and you have the Titanic on your hands. So many new faces, so little talent!!! Starting with Steve “JFP BFF” Burton and ending with the hair model that plays Shaggy (er, Kyle) Abbott. Gag me with a burning spoon! I admit I’m a DRAMA-addicted drama queen, lol, which clearly is not JFP’s “vision” for Y&R. She’s serving us Talk, Talk, Talk when we’re starving for Drama, DRAMA, D-R-AAAAA-M-A! JFP and Josh Griffith should be forced to watch DOOL and B&B every damn day! Maybe they’ll learn something! Log in to Reply pferrando July 23, 2013 I’m enjoying the show as well. I like how Phyllis had the accident. Flashback to Dru…and I also am in the camp that Phyllis slipped. Christ she was in heels and a tight, tight dress. Let’s see how many of us could stand up straight. And you know what…she kinda had it coming. Sorry. Too bad it wasn’t Christine instead of Sharon. I don’t like that Sharon switched the results, but it’s good soap, and it’s not anything like MAB or Latham would have thrown at us. Much more classic soap storytelling. I still hope there’s another twist coming up with the results. Sharon is crazy… Log in to Reply noway July 23, 2013 Damn LaDiva, Pepsi was not meant to come out the nose.

REHIRE KAY ALDEN AND JACK SMITH. HOW FUCKING HARD IS THAT? And if anyone goes to the Y&R event in August (I’m sitting this one out) give JFP the finger for me. Log in to Reply quickie2 July 23, 2013 so I know that Michelle Stafford is leaving the show… does that mean she will be killed off? Log in to Reply Ryan-Scott July 23, 2013 Probably put into a coma and sent to a facility out of town that specializes with those types of injuries. Log in to Reply stoney07 July 23, 2013 to each their own. And like I said, certain things I just expect. But because it doesn’t fit a few people’s taste doesn’t mean the show sucks. Majority of my family/friends that stopped watching under MAB are now avid fans of the show again. So it’s just all about what you consider good soap. Log in to Reply hey mon July 23, 2013 Most of my kids, family, an friends who watch Y&R love it — for the crazy hijinks of Summer, Lantern-Jaw, Noah the Player, Alex&Kevin, Lane (and more Lane), Avery, No Balls (Billy), and Dild (oops) Dylan. Log in to Reply pjc722 July 23, 2013 OK… as much as I hate the fact that the show JUST HAS NOT decided to recast Michelle Stafford’s Phyllis with any number of out of work BUT SPECTACULAR daytime actresses out there, I am even more mad that its a simple and tired “I fell into a coma” plot twist that gets the character out of town. Sure, Michelle opted not to renew but there was ample time to recast the role. The Summer story is huge and needs Phyllis there. A coma with her going to wherever Danny lives instead of him coming back to town IS LAZY. Sure, there is a lot that one can point out to in the show that is weak or bad or just MOVE on… any number of Victoria’s whines would be a perfect starting point… but I will hand it to Josh with writing. His team has given us some great dialogue and believable pacing. Sure, some of the stories are BORING dull and MOVE ALONG ALREADY… case in point, the Lily Tyler Cane and any newbie who comes to town love quad OR any story with Victoria… but this show has the best cast on daytime and they can act. I hear Stoney’s points as well as HEY MON but I also see the HILARIOUS comments that LAdiva has put on here and I have to concur with 60% of them. I watch the show becuase I like it. I get disappointed when the plots go no where and are dropped… case in point(s) Victoria and her job at Newman, wanting a 3rd child even though we don’t see the other 2, and children’s book author. The slowest moving story that better SOCK A PUNCH is Neil’s diary being stolen. For one thing, unless Lily or Devon are super models I don’t see who would here the GCbuzz. Lauren’s video, YES. She’s the owner of high end department store chain and her son was just arrested for something or other and her husband is the ex-da. That’s believable. But Lily and Devon just GOT jobs as exec’s in a fledgling clothing company in WISCONSIN and I don’t even think EITHER ONE GRADUATED COLLEGE yet. Log in to Reply TraceyAbbot101 July 23, 2013 what a waste of talent!! MS underacting….. PB scowling all through the scene. Billy Miller, his hair all sexy, lusting after Victoria and another attempt to blackmail Adam? Nikki dusted off for a few minutes to give a speech to raise funds for MS… some riveting plot line there. Fen and this goth chick all high in Crimson Lights and no one notices? I bet you that Gloria would be tailing him 24/7… and since there are never any customers in the place, they might as well smoke their joints there. Dylan was not on today….. yayyyyyy!! I didn’t fall asleep trying to watch his mesmerizing acting skills. All this build up to Cassie coming back, and other plot points like whose, whose your daddy?…. and plop….. a pile of poop comes out. Log in to Reply Ryan-Scott July 23, 2013 I LOVE Billy Miller’s hair these days! Fucken woof! Log in to Reply quickie2 July 23, 2013 so do they or do they not kill off Phylis? Log in to Reply ChrisGa July 23, 2013 Didn’t think today was terrible but I continue to be disappointed in MS’s current acting style. This is a woman who can give a tongue-lashing like no other yet there just doesn’t seem to be any “bite” to her work in the last few weeks(even during the paternity non-event, she seemed way too docile and she looked on the verge of tears today during those scenes with Sharon Case–I mean, this IS the woman who mowed down Paul and Cricket and kept on going). Only time I saw a glimpse of the real Phyllis is when she told Sharon “Move outta the way you demented bitch!” Now THAT’S the Phyllis I’ve come to expect–she would’ve been the one to push that nutjob outta the way and down that flight of stairs. Log in to Reply sillytee July 23, 2013 Stoney dont get me wrong.. i am enjoying the show. I love Sharon Case and sometimes Sharon.. the only times i FF are with Dildo ( yes, i said it hey mon), i mean dylan, and maybe some Villy crap.. i happen to like lily and cane, they have never bothered me..they just need some kind of spice or a storyline…. im still wishing drucilla would come back.. Log in to Reply sillytee July 23, 2013 OOOO!! i have an idea. what if they recast Drucilla with Rae Dawn Chong!!! Log in to Reply jezza July 23, 2013 Is it possible to be thoroughly entertained and impressed by LaDivaYR’s commentary — and in agreement with much of it — and STILL be enjoying the show? I think the acting saves it. I live for Sharon Case’s performances. I’m convinced another twist is coming, that either Victor ended up having Sharon’s meds switched, after all, or that Sharon didn’t actually switch those tests at all. Her visions of Cassie seemed so hallucinogenic that I wonder if she’s lost her grip on reality to the degree that she’s concocted the switching of the tests in her own head. Whatever it is, I’m excited to see what is coming next, which I suppose is a testament to good soap opera. Log in to Reply Yandrfan99 July 23, 2013 I would have preferred that Phyllis get hit by a car now that would have been a well deserved exit. I also wish that Sharon had nothing to do with any of this s/l.

He’s lazy and just awful. On today’s show, Michael Muhney and Peter Bergman made him look like an amature pulled right out of The Price is Right’s audience. Jessica Collins is over exposed. She’s not a leading actress caliber talent. JFP and JG are trying to force her down the viewers’ throats, but she’s a big FAIL. In fact, her character is irritating beyond words. I don’t see how Sharon Case can survive on this show now. JG has painted her into a corner again. Attempted murder again?? Lazy writing indeed. Log in to Reply Martin V July 23, 2013 Wow – Many of you people are amazing!!! Y&R is a great show with first class storylines and actors. I love everything about, and I like the drama and the different side og every people i GC STOP complaining all the time, it seems as nothing the writters do are good enough – If you dont link the show, the cast, storylines and so on… STOP WATCHING!!! When nothing happends in storyline – its booring! When something happends everythin is wrong, the lines, the setup, the storyline, the actor, charecthers are ruines and so on and on and on….. BTW – Sharon has been on the show since 1994 – she cant be the same character all the time, there has to be some kind for evolution – otherwhis it gets boored. I LOVE Y&R, and some storylines may be booring or stupid – But in overall, the storylines are great and most of all – ITS ENTERTAING!!!

The only thing i like about the show right now is Carmine. WTF? Log in to Reply sillytee July 23, 2013 hey mon, stop agreeing with me! Log in to Reply stoney07 July 23, 2013 Yeah, to me, Michelle Stafford stopped acting when she announced she was leaving. To be honest, I wish she’d just not shown back up on set because its not the WRITING that disserviced the Phyllis character…her acting was just like “OMG get me out of this shit” and it showed on her face and her acting choices. Meanwhile, I don’t think the story is that bad. With the appropriate background music and a little better direction, I think it would be spectacular. Everyone whined and threw tantrums because JG’s writing had no action, no twists and turns, no drama…and now we’re getting it, and everyone is still pooping in their pampers. HOWEVER, I respect everyone’s opinion of the show. And some people have been complaining since day one…and I’m sure were complaining with Bill Bell. Others just don’t find the show entertaining. I don’t fault anyone for disliking the show or even dialoguing about it. I like the challenge of the debate. LOL. Only time I get annoyed is when its just useless complaints about things that either haven’t happened (Who knows how Phyllis will be ushered off) or things that NEVER HAPPENED, or from people who don’t even watch, yet still sign on to vomit out their complaints. But for those of us who watch and just simply aren’t entertained…I feel your pain Though I AM enjoying the show, I learned under LML how it feels to be hanging on simply out of habit. Log in to Reply TraceyAbbot101 July 23, 2013 All Of this action taking place in a stairwell at Sony Studios…. ( well, probably a lot of action going on in said stairwells, but I disgress )…. and for Sharon, who has strong ties to both Jabot Cosmetics and Newman Enterprises, to be carrying around what looks like a Channel lipstick.. talk about product placement – not!!

[/quote] Hell, I kinda figured this out when i saw a cupcake scene when Nick had the flu, i believe? Literally lasted 2-3 mins tops (this was SBu’s first week on i think), and i was like a) WTF does this actress bring to the show that has her as lead and b) why would we not see a real triangle played out with Phyllis’s sister, which INCLUDED Phyllis herself? I know many here feel differently, but The Staff deserved better. That being said, who knows if a show would then snatch her up as quickly as JPF snatched up SBu. I do agree that actors alone can make a show worth watching, IF TPTB’s agenda doesn’t spoil the whole stew. Some have stronger stomachs than others, and i admire those with guts of steel! And while La Diva can be OTT, i tend to agree with most the stuff she says! Like reading a juicy novel….

Like I said before … at this point Nick is basically a kidnapper and yet he continues to throw his patented glower over Jack’s way who he wronged and over Adam’s way who he is unwilling to admit that he is a pea from the same pod. The glower intimates that Jack is in the wrong when he should be looking at him with shame and fear. Its just annoying. Log in to Reply Cornfed July 24, 2013 @Stoney — I hung in there as long as i could :), during both LML’s reign, and then MAB’s. When Victoria Rowell quit, Adrienne Leon was fired for gaining weight as a result of an antihistimine she was taking, and then characters starting showing up all over town at lightning speed (during the Jack/Nikki run for mayor and Phyllis’s jailing), i hightailed it out of there. During MAB’s run it was the crazy Patty period and killing off Colleen (that god awful Tammin Suresucks), i don’t think i lasted long after that. I can’t recall what exactly caused the clean break but i’m sure it was a combination of things! I thought Daniel Goddard was one of the CHEESIEST additions to a soap that i’d ever seen, up there w/Ron Moss or Drake Hogestyn (but not even half as hot as Drake in his prime LOL). I’ve been paying close attention during the Phelps/Griffith reign to see if it’s worth it. I saw a little bit of Carmine and Lauren right before the affair started, and thought his acting was laughable, and nothing could make me endure Jessica Collins and those black rim glasses. Amelia Heinous, and “Lame/Lane” is enough punishment! I’m with LaDiva tho. The luciousness (sp) and consistent acting of Sharon Case is a constant draw on Y/R. Hope Phelps doesn’t fuck that up! Log in to Reply pjc722 July 24, 2013 Stoney…. as much as I love your comments, the last one about people complaining about whats happening next before it happens is BECAUSE we do know what’s going to happen next and that’s why we complain because its bad! LOL I love DC.com and enjoyed reading SOAP OPERA DIGEST, when it wasn’t just a fluff piece and actually told soaps in reviews “YOU SUCK! ” (Miss their grade system…aand the 12 soaps they graded!), but with the internet, blogs, Canada seeing the show a day early and even the promos they put out a week prior (and sometimes before Friday’s cliffhanger… its not hard to find something prior to airing to complain about. I LOVE Y&R from my time I lived on in Ireland for 2 years and only had state tv. Y&R was 2 or 3 years behind and when I came back to the states I jumped in! That was over 20 years ago and I have faithfully watched it since. I want more from this soap so just feels better to devote the time to watching it. I want it balanced and I want stories that pack a punch like Michael & Lauren’s and not Billy & Victoria’s. You go from WOW!!! to blah.

But someone on this forum nailed it earlier when JFP came on the show, they said we should expect one of the women to be stalked because that was JFP’s m.o. Log in to Reply Cornfed July 24, 2013 Heck, i seriously think i’d get back into Y/R if they canned Goddard, OR Heinous. IMO, Billy Miller was smoking hot FIYAH with cutie patootie Elizabeth Hendricksen. But when MAB saw how much Miller made Heinous almost tolerable, they scrapped Chloe and Billy. Heck i loved Hendricksen so much i’d turn straight for that! Speaking of Miller, i thought Blake Hood had that potential to be the next Billy Miller until Jill fucked that up. Yeah, we know every show has their favorites and their politics. Ken Corday will probably NEVER fire Josh Taylor either. (or Shawn Christian or Galen Gerring for that matter!) LOL PJC, omg, how exciting to get SOD…heck i even remember what songs were playing on the radio when i got an issue in the mail! It was an INTOXICATING read from front to back. Those Jonathan Exley photo shoots! The soap editorials! Log in to Reply Cornfed July 24, 2013 Yeah, some guys should stay sleazy as long as they can…heck, wasn’t Erica popular for 30 years b/c she always stayed self-absorbed??? We LOVE those kinds of characters! Victor was an SOD for 30 years too, and ppl loved that as well. Maybe pfferando and others are right that Carmine should stay and continue bringing conflict…he could go on another year or so, and the acting will probably improve too!

Does anyone remember all the hate BH recieved ont his board? IMO, he wasn’t that bad and JFP should get him back. I totally bought him as Jack’s kid.

There was something organic in his acting — the tone of voice had a bit of snot and sarcasm necessary for the role. But nope, Jill went ahead and hired Shaggy The Abercrombie Model instead Log in to Reply Cornfed July 24, 2013 He had that something special — that’s my main point.

If one looks carefully at his physique over the past few weeks, you will see really started working on his upper back a great deal. That is the sign of someone who is serious about fitness — the upper back. Keep Marco/Carmine, he was interesting to the Show. Red gone… Carmine gone… At least there is still Fen, cause who is #ell else is left? Oh, I know, Redaric Williams as Tyler! Yawwwwwn. The ever-continuing story of The Rose – ultrayawn. Villy?-yawn. Billy is willing to throw Adam under the bus to impress Victoria? God aint that the most fire-trucked up s/l of the century. Super-model Billy trying to hold onto that chic? Yeah right. Oh eff-ing well. Log in to Reply Blue Skies and Palomino Ponies July 25, 2013 I won’t be sorry to see Carmine go, either. I liked when his looniness was a little more ambiguous…I have abhorred watching his cartoon villain smile in the last few weeks. I fast-forwarded through Cane & Lily yesterday. That little Hunter Haley King made me cry. Loved the line about Mom having to be Mom now that Dad’s not Dad…she and Peter Bergman are doing a fantastic job with all of this. Log in to Reply tedew July 25, 2013 I don’t see anything wrong his Carmine (or Marco Dapper) at all and he was certainly a much need breath of fresh air. But if he does have to exit violently then they should have just used Nikki. She’s been able to kill people all her life and get away with it. Log in to Reply ChrisGa July 26, 2013 I gotta say I couldn’t care less about Carmine and won’t be sad to see him go(although I do still like him more than Tyler but then that’s not saying much…). He’s nice to look at and all but it’s sometimes painful watching MD try not to be blown off the screen by the likes of Christian LeBlanc, Tracey Bregman and Max Ehrich–sorry, but he’s just not even on the same plane with those three. Log in to Reply tedew July 26, 2013 ChrisGa … I just don’t see where Mr. Dapper did not hold the screen with his counterparts. I think he was a good foil who had no problem at all throwing the ugly truths in their faces. Log in to Reply Leave a Reply Cancel Reply You must be logged in to post a comment.
