HomeSpoilersPromos & PreviewsWill Billy Stay Quiet, As Melanie Cries RAPE on The Young and the Restless? (SNEAK PEEK) Jamey Giddens August 5, 2013 13 Comments Billy Abbott (Billy Miller) had the best of intentions, when he teamed up with disgruntled, ex-Newman Enterprises employee Melanie Daniels (Erin Chambers). The cosmetics heir-turned-barkeep believed if he helped Melanie stick it Adam (Michael Muhney), via a sexual harassment lawsuit, he could get his boy-bitch of a brother-in-law booted from Newman Enterprises and his wife, Victoria (Amelia Heinle), reinstalled. What Billy didn't count on, was Melanie being deranged enough to accuse Adam of a rape he never committed. Watch a sneak peek of today's Y&R after the jump! 13 Responses GHteenybopper August 5, 2013 I’m tuning back out of Y&R for this story…fake accusations of rape are just as bad as seeing actual rape IMO. Why can’t storytellers find better plot devices than rape or pseudo-rape? Good Lord. Log in to Reply Ryan-Scott August 5, 2013 “Muddy storytelling”…to quote the late Douglas Marland.

I’m done until Duchess’ funeral…. Log in to Reply tedew August 6, 2013 Billy had no best of intentions at all. He’s just been possessed by Victor. Log in to Reply bc1954 August 6, 2013 I LOVE any scenes with Dillon, Lily, Neil, Melanie, Rose, Tyler, Victoria, Cane, Cassie (sorry), b/c it gives me the chance to FF through it all and catch up with Under the Dome, America’s Got Talent, Master Chef and Stewart/Colbert! All this FF is what I used to do right before I stopped watching “The Reva Show” Guiding Light…and then it was off a few years later. Sad, but TPTB need to realize that people CAN stop watching a show b/c it’s just gotten too damn dumb! Log in to Reply ChrisGa August 6, 2013 So much wrong with this storyline, starting with the questionably talented day player at the center of it(the character is awful and calling the actress mediocre, with her over-enunciation and odd facial tics, would insult real actors–like Zima and Vasi). All I can say is poor Michael Muhney. Poor Billy Miller. Hell, poor Doug Davidson, for that matter. Positively rotten on all fronts. Log in to Reply pjc722 August 6, 2013 You know… with all my BLAH BLAH BAD THIS BAD THAT… I am slowly… well, quickly, coming around on Sharon’s story. I am intrigued and definitely think Sharon Case is bringing this time around in playing CRAY CRAY. Watching her talk to her dead kid today was sort of sad for me for the character because you could see it in Sharon’s eyes that she was off her rocker. I am interested in seeing how they take the story and if it will involve Victor and switching her meds. Why he would do it after Adam dumped her is beyond me but Victor is Victor. (Of course, we don’t know what the story is). But I am liking this story with Sharon. As for Noah, can we cut our losses and send him to find Eden? Or even recast Eden and bring her back as Noah’s girlfriend before the kid gets an STD or a kid in the process of finding himself?!! And I am not sure what Summer is doing in the living room of the nuRanch, but why wasn’t she written out for a week or two while Avery and Jack are with comatose RED in Georgia? I’m not pleased with continuity and realism on the new Y&R. Log in to Reply sillytee August 6, 2013 i do love sharon case..she’s the one salvaging this story.. i dont know why they havent discussed her therapy. is she still going? is she off her meds? but ms. case is bringing it.. i think billy getting involved is ruining it for me..mr miller and mr muhney deserve better Log in to Reply TraceyAbbot101 August 6, 2013 Inquiring minds want to know: with all of the history she has with Big Red, and all of the antics going on in the lives of her brothers and her niece, just where in the hell has Tracey Abbot been? Do we need to hire Doug Williams and have him reopen his Detective Angency? Would be nice, too, to see Stephen Ford pop on just to catch up with Paul and Lauren….. Log in to Reply Blue Skies and Palomino Ponies August 6, 2013 Don’t love this s/l either, but in terms of continuity, I do like that they played on Billy’s discomfort with the rape allegation having been the victim of this lie himself. So often we complain that the writers miss things like this (hello, Chloe pushing Chelsea to claim someone else as her Baby’s Daddy)and I was pleased to see Billy’s reaction yesterday.

Really is a sad state for a one time great show. Poor Bill Bell, probably rolling over in his grave. All the one time beautiful music gone. Most of the good actors not doing much. One of the best, Michelle Stafford gone. She had more talent than the whole bunch mentioned above do in total. How sad. Log in to Reply pferrando August 7, 2013 Thankfully Billy confronted her about how wrong it was to cry rape. But is was fun to see him record Adam, and then through the charges in his face! >) Log in to Reply Leave a Reply Cancel Reply You must be logged in to post a comment.
