Because what am I missing here, besides an actual person with a name and face on the other end of the phone talking to Noah? It's a guy he's talking to, right? To me, it would be weird if it turned out that it WASN'T a man on the other end of the phone because the scenes play out with so much secrecy.

When I saw that Kevin Schmidt

When I saw that Kevin Schmidt was back in April, I thought they would go this way. But not with this new guy. I can already tell it's going to be a really hot girl, or something like that.

Why are they hiding this

Why are they hiding this really hot girl from the audience though?

Maybe Noah got her pregnant

Maybe Noah got her pregnant or maybe she is Latino and family didn't like Noah because he's a Newman.

The only way this storyline

The only way this storyline could and WOULD be good is if Noah were gay. But no, Jill "Fuck-Up" Phelps most definitely won't dare to go there. Not with Noah Newman, the crown prince to the Newman fortune and Victor Newman's legacy.

Besides, they are probably thinking: "Noah, gay, by this actor?! Haha, get outta here, he's way too masculine! A real ladies man!"

Didn't he talk to his dad about this break up with a girl a few days ago?

I'd be shocked if they wrote

I'd be shocked if they wrote Noah as gay. I think it's this Latina character they are bringing on. Either way, it could be interesting. But you do have to wonder about the cop they are bringing on and what the connection could be. He'd be quite a bit older for Noah anyway. Not that there is anything wrong with that... Wink

All you American viewers will

All you American viewers will find out on Monday's episode that Noah's girlfriend was a girl named Adrianna. I will not spoil anything else, but he reveals to Nick why they are no longer together....so thankfully, Noah is NOT gay!

@Yoryla - the decision to not

@Yoryla - the decision to not make Noah gay was made while MAB was still in charge of the show and KS was still playing Noah.

So no, JFP is not the sole root of all evil...sorry!

I'm all for gay characters on Y&R regardless of whether or not part of a core family, but given the show's track record with Rafe/Adam and Phillip Chancellor III - I think they need to think it through before they go there again. Rafe was a vehicle to prove how evil Adam was (Rafe disappeared pretty much after that), and the Chancellor SLs at that time were such giant clusterfucks with the first of many "Not Dead" plots and the relating/unrelating of Jill/Katherine and Cane/Jill. I just never felt the former regime had any intention of doing anything significant with gay characters besides initial shock and awe.

MAB most certainly planned

MAB most certainly planned for the gay storyline. Why would there have been all the signs on the character? Sony was the one that nixed the idea, if not JFP. And the actor change definitely came from her, so yeah, she did have something to do with it.

You are missing my point, Yoryla. I did not say MAB didn't plan for a gay storyline involving Noah. She did, you are correct. What I am saying is this: the decision to nix it was above her head and it was dropped BEFORE she was fired and before KS was fired. JFP had NOTHING to do with the Noah being gay SL getting the boot. It was done by either Sony or CBS or both (my money is on Sony).

That's all I'm saying as far as that's concerned...

You know, it's like JPF is damned if she does, dammed if she doesn't. Absolutely hold her accountable for bad decisions that she has made, but not every bad decision on soaps traces back to JFP. And how long are people going to hold her feet to the fire for 5+ year old decisions? I was mad as hell when my Frankie Frame was killed so violently on AW, but damn, it's over and done with now. That's bringing up old shit. A lot of what aired on soaps under her tenure was actually good. She's not the first EP to make an unpopular decision. My beloved Bill Bell made some shitty decisions, too. For example: making several Black characters on the show illiterate (Nathan and Drucilla). Drucilla was supposedly illiterate but was the sister of BAP Olivia with two of the most bourgie looking parents ever. But for some wacky reason, Dru couldn't read. And Malcolm's rapey impregnation of Dru while she was on cold medication. Not to mention Ashley not conceiving a child for years after aborting Victor's baby - I always saw that as punishment to the character. Yeah, I still give Bell the side eye for those, but I was able to move past it.

Okay Sorry about the

Okay Smile

Sorry about the incorrect wording. I usually don't even comment on Y&R related topics anymore, but sometimes I make this occasional slip lol.

I have been open-minded about the possibility of them coming up with a storyline that would make me watch the show again. Noah being gay could have been that storyline, that's why I'm so disappointed it didn't happen.

Well, it really could still

Well, it really could still happen if that's where they decide to head. Regardless of any conversations between MAB and Sony/CBS, we're in a new situation now. They're certainly making Noah look like he's hiding something, which could be (or not be) gay.

Just because he said a girl's name to his father also doesn't mean anything if he's trying to hide something. In the scene where he was telling Nick about the girl who cheated on him, his delivery was offhand and cavalier as if he's over it. When he's talking to the mystery person on the phone/text, he's been quite emotional. Something is definitely up - gay or not.

Hey, I dont know why yo are

Hey, I dont know why yo are putting down the character of Drucilla. I thought it was good, cause there is rampant illiteracy in the Latino and African American community. We need to tackle the issue with education, not wish it away.

I agree with you that Carl Barber was definitely bourgeoisie looking, but I dont think that LillieBelle was at all. Once again, the Barber's were tight, solid drama; without the need for corporate intrigue. RIP Norma Donaldson, one of the great Daytime actresses.

I still think we're going to

I still think we're going to be surprised, and "A" will be Alex, not Adriana. I'm starting to believe that Adriana is a fake name, perhpas an alias or code name.

Yeah, that's the vibe I'm getting as well. Maybe a fake name or maybe she's just a friend he met in New York. Or she could even possibly be this Alex character's sister and Noah knows both of them. Either way, something is definitely up.
