Swoontastic: My Favorite Y&R Couple Makes the Cover of CBS Soaps In Depth!

While my crabby pants cohorts have yet to be seduced by the majesty that is Villy, I won't let them diminish the immense pleasure I feel seeing my current, fave CBS soap couple on the cover of this week's CBS Soaps In Depth. Billy and Victoria (Billy Miller and Amelia Heinle) are so scrumptious together, I want to sop them up with a low carb biscuit!
It's so nice to have some reason to say something kind about The Young and the Restless for a change. Check out the teaser blurb below previewing Villy's wedding, where that stinky, old Victor (Eric Braeden) tries to eff up the best love story Genoa City has going! READ MORE

Here We Go Again! Y&R Snags Father Knows Best's Elinor Donahue

TV Guide's
Michael Logan is reporting the stunt-casting bonanza over at The Young and the Restless continues. Y&R has hired Father Knows Best star Elinor Donahue to act as a judge who officiates Billy (Billy Miller) and Victoria's (Amelia Heinle) wedding slated for Sept 8 (my birthday of all days). Head writer Scott Hamner stated,

Relationship and romance is partly about trying to achieve a retro-fantasy of better, simpler times — bringing Elinor on amps up that homage to the perfect family," says Y&R co-head writer Scott Hamner. "We have great admiration for Elinor. She's an iconic part of our collective psyche and it seemed like we couldn't do it without her. We love her!" 

 The sound you hear is my head exploding all over the DC offices.

Three Things to be Young and Restless About Right Now!

We soap lovers can be as scathing as the most hardcore sports fan when it seems our favorite daytime players are asleep on the bench or the writing team is making bad plays. Though I find myself cursing at my TV for some of the recent shenanigans on The Young and the Restless, it’s a reason why I still tune in, and the good must be acknowledged. Giving props where they are due, I want to speak on three things that I’m loving right now about Y&R.


My New FAVE Y&R Couple Makes The Cover of Soaps In Depth!

I know, I know. This revelation is going to cause a lot of DC's readers and listeners to scratch their heads (much like I did at learning those twins belong to Sheila this week. Sigh. Maria, Maria, Maria.), not to mention my podcast co-hosts, but I admit it. I love me some Billy (Billy Miller) and Victoria (Amelia Heinle)! Listen, I am as shocked by this development as anyone, but I do, I adore this pairing that I was so prepared to hate. 

It could be that Billy and Vicky's burgeoning, realistic love story, fraught with decades' worth of PLAUSIBLE conflict betwixt two warring dynasties is the only tale worth watching on what is quickly becoming a soap operatic train wreck of ginormous, LML-like proportions, featuring one insanely-stupid, stupid STUPID lookalike story after another (more on that later) or it could simply be that Miller is bringing out something fun and mischievous in Heinle, which is translating very well onscreen.

Yep, it's offical. Heinle has been Millered! Now then, can Magic Miller (he's been upgraded from Killer as a result of his latest successful assignment) go sit next to Maria, Hogan and Scott when they write the rest of the show, so his wonderful goodness can inspire and/or rub off on their writing, before Victor's twin Lictor comes to town to, oh I don't know, eats all of the horses on the Newman ranch because their caretaker at the orphanage fed Victor more curds and whey than Lictor? 

Check out  a teaser of what's coming up for Harmony's Genoa City's sexy, new pairing in this week's CBS Soaps In Depth after the jump! READ MORE

Who Should Y&R's Victoria Newman be Paired With Next?

On today's episode of The Young and the Restless JT (Thad Luckenbill) and Victoria (Amelia Heinle) confronted the reality of their marriage's impending demise and discussed how to best end it without hurting their child. Victoria needs to get her groove back and Genoa City is brimming with men, so who would you like to see her hook up with next?

Who should Victoria be paired with?
