Now that their are changes in order for Y&R. Don't take too long to get her on the phone for her return. This show needs all the help it can get to get it back on track. And for the Winter's and the only other actor on the show to poll as high as Eric Braeden, they need the HBIC back in the game. Forget the past and keep your spit in your mouth. But if Sony/CBS does not take this opportunity court her they are making the biggest mistake in their life. The press release that had her actually returning would set the tone for the steps Sony/CBS was taking to try and salvage as much of Y&R as they could.

So they need to look at GL who brought back Grant Alexsander and actually helped the ratings a bit. So put the beef's aside and let's get this party started!

Yeah, I loved Dru, but

Yeah, I loved Dru, but Victoria Rowell has alienated most everybody on the set. Eric Braden not withstanding. I think the cast would boycott her. I don't see it happening, I wish it would but she is just too much of a lightning rod. She cooked her own goose.It is too bad because KSJ is asleep in his scenes most of the time. Maybe she could have woken him up.

Drucilla has a special place

Drucilla has a special place in my heart as her intro into Genoa City was around when I started watching in 1990 or 1991. I will never forget Dru yelling at Nathan: "I can't read!".
Gave me chills then and it does now. Victoria Rowell is a dynamic performer.

But a return I just don't see in the cards.

I have always expected to hear of some collaboration between her and Tyler Perry since they are both based in the Atlanta area but that's never happened.

I say it all the time....I don't like most of my coworkers...but I can't go to my boss and tell her to fire them....it just doesn't work that way.

With that being said, bring back Dru!!! They won't, because that would mean a ratings spike and I truly don't think that's what they want at this point. If it was, Kay Alden, Sally Morina Sussman, and Ed Scott as EP would have been brought back....some things are just common sense.

@stoney07 I agree! I don't

@stoney07 I agree! I don't care for some of my co-workers but I do act civil to the ones that are the king of douche bags. However over at Y&R there's alot of divas and divos over there.

You would think in a perfect world ppl should get along for the good of the show, however that too much like right! Vicki Rowell on twitter is filming other things and said she more than bubbles. I think she has moved on and maybe we should too. We all want Dru back, but it not happening!

Loved Dru. My favorite character and soap actress. Great actress. The show needs her. Sharon needs her. Neil certainly needs her.

Ya'll know I co-sign 100

Ya'll know I co-sign 100 percent on this. And it would be an ADDED bonus if Victoria's return pissed off Christel Khalil so much that she actually decided to QUIT. Michelle Stafford wouldn't be too happy either, of course, since she has always believed that Y&R revolves around her and was always threatened by Victoria's stage presence and talent, but if she decided to leave as well, I wouldn't shed a tear! Besides, SyPhyllis Newman already eats up too much of the canvas as it is!!

Sorry folks, but it ain't

Sorry folks, but it ain't gonna happen - the diva has alienated too many folks. Ms. Rowell's career has been in dry dock ever since her alter ego Drucilla took that nasty plunge off the cliff years back.

Victoria Rowell kept me

Victoria Rowell kept me hooked on Y&R. Her demise left a hole in my heart as I knew it would be a LONG time before I would see another woman of color who could carry her own weight. People have said that she burnt her own bridges. They thought that she should be happy to have a job and not rock the boat. If you don't rock the boat the changes will never come. Now Kristoff St John puts in his two cents a little too late. Michelle Stafford had some of her best scenes with Victoria and Sharon Case's scenes with Victoria were enjoyable too. It's a shame that jealousy (shine time) got in the way of good TV. Y&R needs Victoria. I am a fan of Debi Morgan but, her role on Y&R is boring. They need writers who can make this type of storyline interesting. Victoria and Debi are the best of friends and say they won't step on each others toes. If both of them were on the show I would be ecstatic. Alas,it's not to be.

How exactly did she burn her

How exactly did she burn her bridges? What happened? I will love to see Dru and Debi's characters 'fight' over Neil. Will love to see Dru gather her family and command the way she used to. Please bring her back.

She burned her bridges by

She burned her bridges by saying that Y&R had no hairstylists that knew how to do "AA Hair". and By saying that she had to tweak parts of the story to make it more true to the African American lifestyle. She also said that she felt like she should be credited as a writer because SHE was the one responsible for a lot of the Winters' storylines during and after the Bill Bell era. She said that Bill Bell was a wonderful writer, and she loved working with him, but once LML took over, she was shown no respect. She didn't like how LML had turned her into the "Angry black woman" who physically assaulted Carmen several times, even AT WORK. She didn't agree with it. She felt like there was a lot of inequality behind the scenes, even when it came down to wardrobe. She wore some of her own clothes, as did Olivia, while other characters had racks and racks of clothing they'd never worn. She had to do her OWN hair. She had a "misunderstanding" with one of the actresses on the show which allegedly resulted in one of the actresses doing a "spit take" on HER without her knowledge and they all thought it was funny.

Basically, Victoria Rowell burned her bridges by speaking out...the same way Eric Braeden, Jeanne Cooper, Peter Bergman, and all the others have done...but only SHE and KSJ burned their bridges. Seems to ME like inequality isn't just behind the scenes on Y&R. It's in a lot of people's actions.

Stoney, I just want to give your post a standing ovation.

People always want to talk about she burned bridges, costars don't like her, etc…but Eric and Peter literally came to blows, yet a paycheck is a paycheck, and they put it aside and continued to work.

Thank you stoney07 for

Thank you stoney07 for answering tashikins question. As a 53 year old AA woman, I couldn't go there. The anger inside me has subsided but the hurt remains.
I don't blame Victoria for not wanting to be portrayed as the "Angry Black Woman." Its a tired stereotype that was contrary to the growth of the character. Having to supplement your wardrobe made it seem as if they weren't invested in the Victoria or her business world character.
I felt her hair "issues" were warranted & the evidence can be seen whenever Ms. Mitchell was on camera. Some fail to realize that this was a legitimate complaint.
It has been rumored that the "spit take" was done by Michelle Stafford, who felt that Victoria didn't deserve the same amount of camera time and couldn't handle how popular Drucilla was. Victoria Rowell insisting that Crystal Khalil "step her game up" hurt her to.
Victoria's presence is truly missed & surely needed on Y&R.

VR thought the writers and

VR thought the writers and her co-stars should ko-tow to her.
Because she strutted around the set giving orders, sticking her nose up at the wardrobe like she was better than everyone else,trying to be the writer, claiming she didn't know about the spit take and pitching an un-holy fit about it.
She thought it was demeaning. It would have been okay if she spit on someone though.
I think it was just a buzz going around trying to hype up Y&R.
Sharon doesn't need VR, she will just find another man to take care of her and fight her battles.

The wardrobe part…I think

The wardrobe part…I think that's a legitimate complaint. Even now on the show Michelle Stafford's Phyllis is regularly seen wearing high designer gear. One ep she had a Victoria Beckham dress on. Those things cost $1,000+. Then in the same ep you have Sharon Case's Sharon wearing a $100 Anthropologie dress. This isn't a one off occurrence either.

^^OMG so funny cuz I thought

^^OMG so funny cuz I thought Dayzee on B&B has had a real upgrade in her wardrobe especially since last year. Someone in wardrobe really had a grudge against her back when she was paired with Thomas. She is always in Anthropologie now. WOW . http://soapsstyle.com/?cat=176
I wonder who presses her hair now?Its obvious her braids are all her own hair. If B&B have a stylist that does AA hair why don't they share?
I also noticed Michele Val Jean has been writing for B&B recently. Veteran AA soap-writer!!!
Is all of this the product of VR's Twitter ranting? Seems only one of the Bell shows heard her. Ugh ! Can Vicky get on them about SL's though? I am sick and tired of being sick and tired of the Bermuda Triangle.
I really hope Victoria makes it her mission to come back in some capacity. CK is seemingly not coming back so...
JFP & JG need to snatch her up in these times of CBS/Sony/CampBell losing several of their most popular veterans.
