Devon and Tyra's Hot Plot Mess of a Romp, Plus How to Fix Y&R's "Black Storyline"

When I first read the spoilers that Devon (Bryton McClure) and Tyra (Eva Marcille)— whom he believed was his aunt up until just a few months ago— would be hooking up on The Young and the Restless, I decided to wait and see how the story/scenes would play out before making a judgement call. Sometimes the most taboo, illicit circumstances can lead to good, juicy drama on soaps. That wasn't the case with this ridiculous plot twist.

Devon and Tyra ripping each other's clothes off, before getting busy on the couch, was all shades of nasty, and just plain wrong on so many levels. For starters, Devon and Tyra's attraction came out of left field. Does Y&R's brass really believe the one, tired wet dream Devon had a few weeks back was enough to set up this hot plot mess? This isn't how you spin stories on a soap opera. You don't drop some dangling plot point and then pick it up weeks later, believing it was proper enough set up for an out-of-character twist.  READ MORE

Wishful Casting: General Hospital Superstar Vanessa Marcil as Y&R's Victoria Newman

Inspired by Babs and Chris Goutman's recent casting coup, I got to thinking about what the next ultimate casting power move should be for the best soap not currently airing on television —As The Executives Turn. Since I don't see Eric Braeden leaving The Young and the Restless to play a new German mob boss, or Mikkos Cassadine on General Hospital anytime soon, I came up with the next best thing. What if Babs, Auntie Ri Ri and Uncle Paul convinced Bob Guza's muse herself, Vanessa Marcil (ex-Brenda) to join daytime's hottest show in the role of Victoria Newman McNeil Howard Carlton Hellstrom?

I'm sorry, licensing fees be damned, I can count six people right off the top of my head who could be shown the door in order for Ms. Marcil to make her way to Genoa City. When she last returned to GH, 800,000 viewers returned with her. Name another soap star who can spike numbers like that? Y&R should get Marcil's people on the horn ASAP! READ MORE

Should Devon and Not-So-Aunt Tyra Get Freaky Sneaky on Y&R?

In her juicy, Genoa City spoiler today, DC's Jillian revealed Devon (Bryton McClure) is going to start having dreams about kissing Tyra (Eva Marcille), who up until recently he believed was his auntie, on The Young and the Restless! 

I don't know about y'all, but I'm having mixed emotions on the subject of a possible Devon/Tyra hookup. On the one hand I think it's just plain nasty, with a Capital "N'! If that woman was raised like sisters with Devon's crackhead mama, then she is his auntie. period!

On the other hand, this is a soap, and nasty and taboo can go a looong way, just ask Guiding Light. Incestuous cousins/lovers/spouses Jonathan and Tammy were that show's last, big, pre-Otalia supercouple, and even this Jammy hater has to grudgingly admit they were kinda hot, in an all-shades-of-wrong-need-to-go-ask-the-pastor-to-pray-for-me kinda way. So what do you think, should Y&R raunch it up with a Devon and Tyra pairing, or is even the thought of Devon swapping spit, and possibly other DNA samples, with Tyra just to gross for words?
